Author Sugar Jamison proves that love does come in all sizes in her new paperback book titled Dangerous Curves Ahead. Not your typical chick lit, the heroine of this romance novel, Ellis Garrett, is a "plusher" girl who has learned to embrace the shape of her curvy body and doesn't let pants size dictate how she lives her life. Women everywhere should read this book and learn how to be loved for who they are and not who they think they should be, whether that is thinner, smarter, sexier or funnier.
Do you like steamy romances but want the wholesomeness of a family saga? Bella Andre is the author for you. Her Sullivan Series follows the lives of the eight Sullivan siblings as they one by one find true love. All set within a warm family dynamic, with enough sibling rivalry and bickering to make it realistic, each book can be read as a standalone and they need not be read in sequence. The sex scenes are a bit steamy and romantic, but each story is filled with true emotion and has a strong and solid basis of love.
Valentine's Day is almost here and love is in the air. The library is THE place for romance readers. No matter what kind of love story is your favorite - contemporary, historical, paranormal, or just good old fashioned "boy meets girl, they fall in love and live happily ever after" stories - we have them all. Stop in and check out our Love Stories display on the first floor. We pulled together some of the greatest love stories of all time, from Gone With the Wind, to the tumultuous love affair of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.
Nicholas Sparks is an author whose writing appeals to all ages. His latest, The Longest Ride, is an amazing book that tells what life and love are supposed to be about, and has a lesson for everyone no matter what stage of life they are in. It is the tale of two love stories, one at the end of its life and one just beginning, and the journey each couple took to find what they wanted and needed in the person they loved. Reality, fate, destiny and love are all present in this novel, and I think both men and women will enjoy the story.
After the holiday hustle and bustle was over the only books I felt like reading were something light and easy. I checked my "to be read" book list and headed to the paperback shelves, grabbed a copy of Just One Kiss by Susan Mallery, and found just what I was looking for. Susan Mallery, author of the long running Fool's Gold Series, is one of my favorite authors. Just One Kiss takes you back to the town of Fool's Gold, California with all its warm and quirky characters, and is the first in a trilogy within the long running series.
Shopping for readers this holiday season? The BookCellar at the Fond du Lac Public Library – the city’s only used book store – sells used books, movies, music and magazines for all ages at deep discounts. Most hardcover books are $1, paperbacks and kids’ books are 50 cents.
In December, two special sales offer even-better deals:
First in the new Nantucket Brides Trilogy, True Love by Jude Deveraux combines a little mystery, a ghost, a big family, with some reincarnation mixed in to make this a perfect choice for all you hopeless romantics out there. The Taggerts and Montgomerys from the author's Velvet series are together again in this magical tale set on the island of Nantucket.
You can't help but get caught up in the drama-filled life of Quinn Barton in Beth Harbison's latest book with the somewhat naughty title. Perfect for lighthearted chick lit fans, Chose the Wrong Guy, Gave Him the Wrong Finger is a tale of unrequited love, but told in a way that makes it funny, light, and romantic, with just enough seriousness to not be fluffy.
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion is a humorous story of a man finding love. Don Tillman is a professor of genetics at an Australian university.

Don decides he wants a wife and gets advice from Gene and Claudia. He makes a questionnaire to weed out smokers and those who are chronically late. Then Rosie comes into his life. She smokes and is chronically late.
