A few more reader questions have come my way and I thought I’d give them a go. If anyone here has more to provide by way of answers, feel free to comment. I love reader questions! So much fun to investigate the answers. I learn, too!
Q: Cathy asks: Re: For His Pleasure Series - “When will we see more of Red and Nickie?”
A: The author posted this update on her Facebook page:
“Hi All! I know I know I know that everyone is desperately and patiently (as possible) waiting for FHP 19. The thing is, there’s this other project that I’ve almost finished, and I’ve been waiting to reveal it. But since you are all wondering what’s going on, I thought it made sense to give you an update.
I am getting ready to finish a book that will show Red Jameson’s side of the relationship with Nicole, going back to their first meeting and showing the progression of book one from Red’s POV. It’s been so much fun to write, and I think it will be so much fun for people who love them and wish to see more of what went on in their romance!!
That book is just a few days away from publication.
I do apologize for the delay on book 19, but this just had to be written, and book 19 comes next! That’s a promise…”
Q: Kellie asks: I’m so darn confused I have read Taking Chances & Stealing Harper. I absolutely loved both book but feel frustrated by being left hanging by *spoiler* *spoiler* & abrupt end to the book. Did I miss something!!!!! Is there going to be a next book in the series because I CAN NOT stand not knowing what happens to *spoiler*. Does *spoiler*?!!!!!!!!!!!!! Is that meant to be the end of this phenomenal book.
A: Er… I have only read “Taking Chances” (it came out first) but I’m fairly certain that is the main book and how it proceeds and how it ends is pretty much… it. That’s your main story. LOL! Have you read it in it’s entirely? If not, definitely read it, and you’ll get your answers. ”Stealing Harper” doesn’t change the story at all. I think it’s just Chase’s POV. I hope I understood the question correctly and was able to answer you.
AND! Katie on our Facebook page has added info: She says:
“…there is a 3rd book coming out and it’s going to be Liam’s book. It’s called “Trusting Liam” and I believe there may be more books for different characters, but I’m not 100% sure.”
Q: Nancy asks: Maryse help me I am so confused by the soon to be released #4 Consequences book (Convicted: The Missing Years (Consequences #4)) by Aleatha Romig. This is not a companion book but a 4th book that is to be read after Convicted. What about those companion books from Tony’s point of view. Are they to be read after the 4th book? Or are we to just forget them?
A: Here you go, my friend!! I found her explanation and it’s awesome (sounds like the voices from multiple POV’s surrounding Tony were coming to her fast and furious so she turned it into a full length book!). She says:
“I don’t want to minimize their significance to my series. HOWEVER, THE MISSING YEARS is in a whole different category. It is MANDATORY reading for anyone who has completed Consequences, Truth, and Convicted. I apologize for the confusion but not for the end result. THE MISSING YEARS answers every question and allows readers a first-hand experience at what was only previously mentioned…”
Q: Kay asks: Just read 50 shades of grey. … I need a little air .. I own 50 shades darker.. Should I read it now or since I never saw or read twilight.. Should I read that next or see the movie? Not sure about my next move. What do u think?
A: I couldn’t help but answer this one ’cause OMG HOW LUCKY is SHE!!?? To have just discovered these books for the first time now?! So this is what I answered her: I’d go straight to Fifty Shades Darker. Oh yes… that was my favorite out of the trilogy! But also ABSOLUTELY read Twilight. One of my all-time favorite books ever! I was addicted with that one. Lucky you that you get to experience my very favorites for the first time. And then after Twilight, read Jamie McGuire’s Beautiful Disaster (that’s my favorite!!!!)
Q: (Speaking of my beloved Travis)… Nova asks: I remember a little while ago you were kind of searching for a new book hero that you love like a Travis – any luck with that – I am exactly the same – I read lots of great hero’s but they just don’t quite stand out like Travis Maddox (Beautiful Disaster)!!
A: Nova, Nova, Nova… I am right there with you. It’s not that I want to replace Travis, ’cause I can’t imagine loving any other book-hero more than him, and honestly? I don’t wanna. I always only want to love him the most, and I’m starting to realize I think that’s just the way it’s gonna be. Nobody has surpassed him, for me. But to be able to find another one that has the “Travis-effect” on me… (or that I could love as much)? Well, that would be a dream! Alas… I’ve come close every once in awhile, and maybe even SUPER CLOSE, but I’m all ears (and eyes) to find out more. My favorite book-men as I reflect on my past reads? Kellan in Thoughtless, Christian in Fifty Shades of Grey, Brian in Rock Me, Barrons in Darkfever (the entire Fever series, he just keeps getting better and more intense and OMG the perfect alpha-jerk), and Zsadist in Lover Awakened. Ooooh!! Jamie in Outlander. Dex in the Experiment in Terror series… (and I’m ready for more suggestions!) Now if you ask me… I think there is no better Travis-like guy than one from the source. So I have HIGH hopes for falling head-over-heels with yet another Maddox brother in just a few weeks. His name is Trent Maddox, his books is Beautiful Oblivion: A Novel (Maddox Brothers) and I’m already in love (just on association alone)!
A: I can help! In fact I made an entire list of our favorite comedy romance books. My own personal favorites plus that of our fellow readers. I think you can’t go wrong choosing from this list. <— I hope that helps!
A: Two of us have a suggestion!! Erica says: Beautifully Damaged#1 by L.A. Fiore. And that’s the scene I remember the most about that book too!! I was like *hold on, what is he doing??*. I think I even re-read that paragraph! He knew who she was, but she didn’t know him. I’m pretty positive ^^^ that’s the book you’re talking about. And I say: Or!! Could it be “Any Way You Want It” by Kathy Love? He’s a vampire but in a New Orlean’s rock band. It’s very “contemporary romance” and she and he are dating but she doesn’t know he’s a vampire so he does it on purpose to “scare her off” of the relationship by making out with a groupie knowing she’ll see it… (this one was so good!! my review)
Q: Mia asks: Hi Maryse, I really need to get rid of my Twilight obsession, I started the first book of black dagger but for me it hasn’t enough romance. Could you tell me if I should rather read Sookie Stackhouse or the Night Huntress?
A: Mia! Please continue reading The Black Dagger Brotherhood series. If you just started book #1 you haven’t even hit the intense romance yet, and it’s comes fast and furious in each book. It’ll hook you, I’m SURE of it. VERY romance-driven books, even with all of the action and bad-guys that come along. That said, I’d still highly recommend both the Sookie Stackhouse and the Night Huntress series. I loved them all like crazy, but these are all considered “urban fantasy” which means, while the romance is intense and important in the series, it progresses throughout each book as their story expands (along with all of the action and danger parts). But while I’m here, let me point you to my “What to Read After Twilight” post. I’ve heard this one has helped out many of our fellow readers.
And Laura suggests: Mia – Have you read the Dark Light books? They’re awesome, hot, angsty… <— AGREED!!!
Q: Shammi asks: I follow your blog everyday and have read some awesome books from the recommendations you mention in your blog. Can you suggest some good books in the same line as of fatal series by Marie force. I really like the Fatal series (Samantha, Nick and Scotty, a lovely family).
A: Great question Shammi! I actually haven’t read those series yet (*gasp* I know, I hear they are awesome, so I am chagrined right now) but I have a feeling some of our fellow readers here have. Perhaps we can get some suggestions?
- Bewaji suggests: J.D. Robb – In Death Series saying “…very similar to Marie Force’s Fatal series.“
