Caught up on some older books and discovered that I wanted to read more by these authors:
Elise Sax - Going Down - hilarious throughout
Fiona Brand - The Sheikh's Pregnancy Proposal - loved it so much that I immediately re-read it; got several sweet dreams out of it
Day Leclaire - Jinxed - laughed so hard that it was hard to catch my breath at times
Thanks for sharing....

A couple others--I found Kira Archer's 69 Million Things I Hate About You hilarious... Mari Carr's Second Chances series (re-released) is emotionally satisfying as well as hot.
