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!
The list will be updated occasionally and new books will be added at the top.
Penny has never met a wounded creature she didn’t want to heal and love—and that includes the grumpy, ruthless man next door.
Do you like banter? Then this is the book for you! Hattie embarks on the first year of the rest of her life, plan firmly in hand, and nothing is going to keep her from it—not even a delicious man called Beast.
A delightful science fiction romance with a prickly assassin heroine and a sweet, badass hero. She takes him hostage after a botched assassination, but the political ramifications go much deeper. Balanced on the edge of war, they must find trust enough to work together.
Do I have a thing for grumpy super-soldiers? Yes, yes I do. Ashwin is tasked with infiltrating a close-knit group of warriors. Easy peasy—except he never expected the one woman he cared about to be there, too. Now his secrets may destroy them both.
A woman used to being overlooked and the prince who sees exactly how special she is. Words cannot express how much I loved this one!
Two enemies are trapped together on a planet where the very atmosphere is a killer aphrodisiac. Scorching hot!
A woman determined to teach despite fierce resistance meets a bearded mountain of a man, descended from pirates, who calls her cheri, and moves heaven and earth for her. Swoon.
A woman boldly steals the last ice cream carton—and a kiss—from a handsome man without realizing he’s a world-famous rock star. When circumstances throw them together, they slowly grow closer.
A sociopath decides to take revenge for her best friend’s death by breaking the man responsible and taking away everything he holds dear. She starts by becoming his girlfriend and it gets so much better from there.
A young woman from a planet rebelling against Earth finds an abandoned AI mech that could end the war, if she can bring herself to follow her training and sacrifice his life. Beautifully written.
Urban fantasy based on Native American myths. Loved the incredible world building!
Small town girl with big dreams gets mixed up with a motorcycle club enforcer who’s got secrets of his own. Sweet and steamy.
A smart, witty scientist heroine and an undercover prince hero—two of my favorite things. Loved it!
Two competitive ice skaters must set aside their mutual loathing to work together for a chance at gold. An enemies to lovers story that I adored.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A fantasy romance beautifully written and emotionally captivating. I could not put it down.
An American heiress meets an arrogant duke and sparks fly. The only problem? She’s already engaged—to someone else.
A sexy Scottish duke, the adult ward he inherited with the title, and the scandal to end all scandals. My catnip.
Historical mystery with a smart heroine, a smoking-hot hero, and an interesting plot. Start with A Curious Beginning.
A young woman who only wants to avoid scandal finds herself in a compromising situation with the very man she was trying to avoid.
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 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. :)
