First, I have to thank my bloggie buddy CC, who delivered a gentle kick in the pants last week. She reminded me of my new year’s resolution to blog more. Thanks, girl. Hope your latest and greatest is doing well on Amazon.
My to-be-read list is long. I have a great friend who recommends wonderful indie romance writers. My favorite authors have new releases that I have posted on my calendar. I’ve also discovered great finds on e-publishers that I’m really getting into.
This isn’t in order, but I do have a few with serious squee factors. What’s a squee? The high pitched, excited noise that you can’t control. The one you make when bouncing up and down. That’s a squee.
JR Ward. Major squee. First, let me just say that The Warden changed my perspective on paranormal romances. ‘I’m a fan’ is putting it lightly. I blazed through each book and waiting, obsessing, over the next book in the series. LOVER AT LAST. And no kidding on the at last thing. I cannot wait to read Quinn and Blaylock’s story. It has been such a long time coming. And it’s going to be hot. HOT. March 26, 2013.
JB Salsbury. Major Squee. This debut author is on fire with her UFC fighter series. Jonah and Raven’s story FIGHTING FOR FLIGHT is sweet and hot all at the same time. I’ve read the advanced copy, and I can’t wait to see this playboy athlete fall in love with a sweet, innocent girl with a dangerous family history. Whoa my God, does this story up the stakes. And the other UFC fighters are all headed toward HEA in this Fighting Series. Release anticipated: March 2013. BTW, since she’s a debut author, like and fan her on Facebook andGoodreads.
Maya Banks- Major squee. I love Maya Banks, and I love her KGI series. That said, I couldn’t wait until PJ and Cole had their story. SHADES OF GRAY. It came out the first of January. Needless to say, this is more of an already read. But it was tops and first on my 2013 TBR list. RUSH is the first of her next erotic trilogy. I’m intrigued. It’s been called hot and intense, and I could always use a well written BDSM erotic read on my list.
Sabrina Garie- My bloggie buddy and paranormal romance writer. FIRES OF JUSTICE releases October 17 from Ellora’s Cave. The Warden got me hooked on paranormals, and the A to Z Challenge had me hooked with Sabrina’s kickass heroines. I’m excited to read her erotic novel.
Jaci Burton- THROWN BY A CURVE (March 5) and ONE SWEET RIDE (June 4). Major squee. Let’s touch on one of the best things about Jaci Burton’s Play-By-Play series. The covers. They are always heart-stopping, book-buying awesomeness. And as hot as the covers are, her athletes are even hotter. The romances are molten, like singe your fingers on the page.
Jaci Burton AND Lora Leigh- NAUTIER AND WILDER (April 2)When these two package their novellas together, it’s explosive. Lora’s Nauti Boys and Jaci’s Wild Riders bring some of my favorites: super alphas, bikers, suspense. Cannot wait.
Okay, this was actually only a snippet of my must read list. What’s on yours?
