The Share the Love blog hop is a little different because it’s about sharing the love. In this case, that means letting you know about some fabulous authors I adore, and asking you to follow them as a way of entering my giveaway.
So who do I love? 🙂 I’m a voracious reader, so I love a whole lot of authors. (Not like that…ahem.) This time around I decided to focus on paranormal, mostly shifter, since I’m writing paranormal and that means you’re probably readers of paranormal. So here are a few of my faves and some of their books that I really love:
Celia Kyle – The first book I read by Celia Kyle was Battered Not Broken, which is still one of my favorites. I went on from there to read He Ain’t Lion and have enjoyed several more of the Ridgeville series. Most recently I read Whitney, the third in the Alpha Marked series. I read that one first, so now I need to go back and read the first two in the trilogy (what a shame…more great books to read!).
Eve Langlais – A lot of Eve Langlais’ books are humorous, but my favorites of hers aren’t – I totally love the Pack series, made up of three books, Defying Pack Law, Betraying the Pack, and Seeking Pack Redemption (so far??). They’re dark and uncompromising. When people do bad things, there are consequences. And they’re ménage, which I do love. Now, while those are my favorites, I like her other, lighter books too. One that sticks out in my mind is Delicate Freakn’ Flower, because of the way the mates find each other.
Kresley Cole – Kresley Cole’s been a huge favorite of mine ever since I discovered A Hunger Like No Other the first in her Immortals After Dark series. Maybe it was the opening of the book that got me…a werewolf so intent on getting to his mate that he chewed off his own leg to get out of a shackle. Her characters are complex, the obstacles they face are huge and (nearly) insurmountable, and I have a hard time putting her books down once I’ve started. I’m currently reading Shadow’s Claim. Give Immortals After Dark a try!
Michelle Fox – I’ve read several of Michelle Fox’s books but the one that sticks out in my mind is Bring Her Wolf. I loved the set up, the hero, and the pay off. I remember wishing I could read more about those two…and now I can! A new sequel just came out. The Alpha’s Mate. I can’t wait to read it!
Kinsey Holley – I discovered Kinsey Holley’s Yours, Mine and Howls a few years ago. Have you ever had one of those books that you went back to over and over? I don’t typically re-read books, but I’ve re-read this one several times. I haven’t been able to pinpoint exactly what makes it so fabulous for me but if you like werewolf cowboys and heroines who aren’t quite what they seem, do yourself a favor and check it out. I’ve read several others by her as well, all of them good. But Yours, Mine and Howls is the one I can’t get out of my head.
What about you? Have you read any of my faves? Or do you have favorites I didn’t mention? I always love to find new authors, so lay them on me… 🙂
Some people have had issues with getting sent to author’s Facebook profiles instead of their Fan pages.
