Many readers out there have already fallen under the seductive charms of the paranormal romance, and here I am, just swimming in the kiddie pool. But I have a feeling things are about to change....
The first time I really ventured out of the historicals or contemporaries was to read Sherrilyn Kenyon. I picked up "Fantasy Lover" and discovered the world of the hot and sexy vampire. I was definitely willing to be pulled to the dark side if this was what was waiting for me. Cold lips and dead hands? Ick. But a hot-blooded Dark Hunter with a raging sex drive? Yes, please.
Since then, I've slowly added to my collection, mixing it up a little with some futuristic books, some fantasy and science fiction, adding JD Robb's "In Death" series, Shiloh Walker's Hunters, Angela Knight's vampires, J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood, Anne Bishop's Black Jewels trilogy. I've read Ann Aguirre's "Grimspace" and just got "Wanderlust". I have a couple of Meljean's books though her talent intimidates me. I've dabbled with Nalini Singh's series, and read one of Lara Adrian's books. I've experimented.
And I think I'm ready for more. Okay, okay, maybe my new infatuation with Patricia Briggs has lead me to act a bit impulsively, but I want what everyone else is having. It's time to step up to the buffet and find something new to try. I will always love my historicals, but in order to appreciate them, I need to stop taking them for granted as my fall-back plan and learn to appreciate what's new and exciting out there. Thanx to Shannon, I've picked up this gem by Kim Harrison. She has intrigued me with all her "villain" talk.
I've seen Jackie around the 'net, and now might be the time to discover what Hell is all about. I haven't picked this one up yet, but it's on my list of potential tbb books if/when my current list fails to thrill me. A day late and too many dollars short, nevertheless I'm intrigued by all of what's out there.
Calling all recs!
Tell me what some of your favorite books/series are please.
And I would be ever so grateful if you clue me in as
to whether there's an HEA, an HFN or a "don't hold your breath".
