  1. Most of the books I listed this week are set in the U.K. I tried to add some others though. I did add Rock Hard. I love that book, and the setting is AMAZING! I really would love to go to New Zealand. Also, Anna and the French Kiss! I forgot about The Rosie Project. I love that book. I haven't read any others, though.

  2. I've been thinking about reading The Rose Project for a while now. It's on and off. First I say yes read it, then I don't want to...I guess we'll just have to see what happens! I'll keep it on my TBR just to be safe! Great Top Ten! :D
    My Top Ten Tuesday!

  3. Great list! Love the inclusion of On the Island and Slightly Tempted. I love books set in NZ (have you read the Escape to NZ series by Rosalind James? It's fantastic) so curious about that Nalini Singh!

  4. I need to read Anna and the French Kiss sometime! Here’s my TTT!
