Looking for a good book? I loved all of the books below. However, books are very subjective, so be sure to read a sample before buying. :) Book budget blown? Check your local library. Libraries are the best!
A kickass heroine, the lion shapeshifter who loves her, and a whole host of awesome side character. One of my all-time favorite series. If you haven’t read any of the books, start with Magic Bites.
Full disclosure: Ilona and I are friends, but that doesn’t make her books any less awesome. :)
A coyote shapeshifter gets kidnapped by powerful vampire enemies. She must escape before her werewolf husband starts a war to get her back.
Another favorite, start with Moon Called if you’re new to the series.
A young woman who only wants to avoid scandal finds herself in a compromising situation with the very man she was trying to avoid.
Historical mystery with a smart heroine and a fast-paced plot. Read A Curious Beginning first.
A sexy Scottish duke, the adult ward he inherited with the title, and the scandal to end all scandals. My catnip.
An American heiress meets an arrogant duke and sparks fly. The only problem? She’s already engaged—to someone else.
A fantasy romance beautifully written and emotionally captivating. I could not put it down.
A Rogue by Any Other Name: The First Rule of Scoundrels: . (Rules of Scoundrels Book 1) by Sarah MacLean
This is such a fun story, as the heroine refuses to take any shit from the hero. Fair warning: the hero spends a good deal of the first half as kind of an ass, but it’s so, so satisfying when he comes around.
Originally written as a set of interconnected short stories, the end of the first story blew my mind. Worth it for that alone, but the rest are great, too.
I have a soft spot for writer heroines and Zenobia doesn’t disappoint. Add a hero that completely skips the alpha-asshole nonsense while still being badass and I’m in love.
Start with The Iron Duke if you want the read the whole series, but it can stand-alone, too.
A tipsy bride bolts before her “perfect” wedding and it’s up to the best man to bring her back. Only once he gets caught up in her adventure, he starts to think maybe he’d rather be the groom. But honorable men don’t steal their best friend’s bride, right? Utterly adorable.
A technically dense science fiction book about one man trapped alone on Mars and his plan to get home. By turns funny, sarcastic, and optimistic despite all odds, you just have to root for him.
