We have a reader that has just joined us!! YAY Jan!! And she promptly jumped in with some of her very favorite books, now, and from years gone by. From paranormal, to historical, to indie contemporary, this reader is definitely one of us!!! And I already KNOW (and can pinpoint quite a few of us here) that will wholeheartedly agree with her picks. Including me!!!!
P.S. There are a few new-to-me on here (and one, that one up there to the left, that I JUST heard about a few days ago, regarding how awesome it was, and here it is, on Jan’s list, too). MINE!!!!
Ready for her list?
“Thanks so much for sharing, everyone. Here are some of my favs you might like to try.”
Kiss of Snow (Psy/Changeling Series Book 10) by Nalini Singh (paranormal) <— This one is Hawke and Sienna’s story. Hawke is the ultimate alpha male. Whew! He doesn’t want to want Sienna, but now she’s all grown-up …
Cry Wolf (Alpha & Omega Book 1) by Patricia Briggs (paranormal) <— Charles and Anna are a great pairing. Oh yeah, and Charles is super hot…
Motorcycle Man (The Dream Man Series Book 4) by Kristen Ashley <— Tack Allen has to be one of her best ever alpha male heroes. (Seriously – who doesn’t love KA?)
The Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher <— An oldie but still a goodie. Still makes me cry when Olivia finds the poetry book and the letters.
These Old Shades (Alastair-Audley Book 1) by Georgette Heyer <— Yeah, read her to death when I was a teenager. This one is still my fave. First published in 1926. Unbelievable. I re-read it recently out of curiosity, and it’s still got it. Super romantic story. Who needs explicit sex in a book, when one look can say it all? Ah, Justin Alastair. (Swoon). GH is a legend.
Kulti by Mariana Zapata <— A recent find for me – saw it praised on this website. (Thanks Maryse and gang). Loved this slow build story of two soccer stars. (And I don’t even watch soccer – what’s with that?) A definite re-read for me. Wall of Winnipeg was great too.
Beautiful Player (The Beautiful Series Book 5) by Christina Lauren <— Hanna and Will’s story. OMG. Friends to lovers, sweet geeky heroine tames the bad boy player. Definitely the best out of the Beautiful series.
The Turning Point by Freya North <— Loved, loved this slow build book. Still reeling. Older guy and older woman, both with children and baggage, from different continents, find ways to make their relationship work. Beautiful. You must read this book, all the way through to the very last page!
Heartless by Mary Balogh <— Gorgeous Georgian romance with emotionally damaged hero redeemed by the love of a good woman. (Sigh) Luke and Anna’s relationship is built beautifully and convincingly. These characters are real to me. A go-to comfort book. (Balogh’s Irresistible is also an old fave with many re-reads. I’m seriously in love with Nathaniel Gascoigne.)
A Woman Scorned (Lorimer Family & Clan Cameron series Book 2) by Liz Carlyle (Regency era) <— Loved this and all of her early books. (Sadly her recent efforts have gone off IMO.) This book is one of her best. Captain Cole Amherst. Decent, honourable, upstanding ex-soldier (and super hottie) falls for a femme fatale whose past is under a cloud. (But is she really as wicked as everyone thinks???)
