We have to read this book!

Imagine for a moment that you are Minnesota Author Patti O'Shea, and a bunch of brainy lesbians (and one brainy straight person) read your trashy "action romance" novel and then invite you to come speak at their book club meeting...the first question you are asked is, "What inspired you to have your name appear in huge hot pink letters on your web site?"

Okay seriously, I think we would all regret it for the rest of our lives if we did not give this book a chance. Get a load of the description (emphasis mine):

"Alone on a strange planet. Their teammates murdered by an unknown enemy. Help weeks away. Could there be a worse time to fall in love?

Ravyn Verdier was the communications specialist on a mission to test the habitability of Jarved Nine. Damon Brody was the commander who rescued her when the rest of her team is mysteriously killed. Trapped on a planet that harbored an unimaginable evil, they must depend on one another, trust each other implicitly.

An abandoned city held the key to their survival, but what they found behind its ancient walls defied all their preconceived notions, tested the very limits of the bond that had formed between them. To succeed, they would have to cast aside their doubts and listen to their hearts. For only when they were linked body and soul—when they realized love was their greatest weapon—would they be able to defeat the monstrous force bent on destroying all life."

Kiss Me, I'm Irish!

Okay, I'm not really Irish. So...this was the book that I was yakking on about at book club the other night, We discussed reading it in December and heading to an Irish pub. Then I looked at it on today and read a whole bunch of scathing reviews. Apparently historians hate this book, because of Cahill's loose interpretation of history and lack of detail. So we can rethink it of ya'll want to! As long as we come up with something that involves a field trip I am happy.
