The Three Queens!

I want to take a moment to discuss the three authors who are for me tied at the top as the most awesome authors ever. These three ladies write some of THE best books I have ever read, and continue to do so with each new installment they produce. These ladies are number 1 in my books. I will talk about them in alphabetical order.

Christine Feehan is up first. I can't tell you just how much I love what this lady writes. All her series rock. Her Ghostwalkers, her Drake Sisters, and of course her Carpathians. This year's Ghostwalker novel has been released, her Drake for this year is due the end of next month, and this year's Carpathian novel will be out at the end of August. I also love her Leopard series and can't wait until she returns to it.

Lynsay Sands is next up. Her Argeneau series is the bomb. It's a very unique take on the vampire genre. I so love this series and I was totally psyched she intends to not only continue it, but bring in non-Argeneau characters who have stood out. Her next book, out this year, will be about just such a character. It's called The Rogue Hunter and will be about Mortimer from Bite Me If You Can. He's not an Argeneau, but he works with Lucian Argeneau hunting rogue vamps. Lynsay Sands is awesome.

Last, but certainly not least, is NJ Walters. Her books rock. I am so in love with her Dalakis and Tapestry series. I also adored her single title, Amethyst Moon. She knows not only how to write a great story, but she manages to make you feel like you know the characters. Her first story I read was Christina's Tapestry and I was hooked from then on. She makes me wish I were rich so I could purchase everything she has out right now. Unfortunately, I have to budget each month.:-( But this woman is two words: freaking awesome!

As I said, all three ladies are tied as my number one favorites. These are authors I can guarantee deliver each and every time. If you'd like to check out anything they write, I have links up to each and everyone of their websites. Trust me, you won't regret reading their books.

Funny & Sexy

This next book was both erotic and hilarious. It's called Who Wants To Date A Superhero by R.G. Alexander and is part of Ellora's Cave gemstone series. It falls under the month of amethyst. I loved this. It's a spoof of reality shows like The Bachelor.

Cassie is an ordinary girl living and working as an insurance clerk in Gaia City. But, while she's normal, superheroes and supervillians are common everyday things. And the hottest thing around is the television show called Who Wants To Date A Superhero where average women compete in crazy and dangerous tests for a chance to win an evening out with a superhero. Normally, Cassie has no interest in such activities, but this season's hero is one she's desperate to meet.

With the help of an amethyst anklet, Cassie heads to the show to win it. But, her true reasons for needing to meet superhunk of the season, Theta Wave, remain a mystery. And, if she wins, Cassie may lose the man she loves above all others.

This was fantastic. I laughed so hard while reading it. But it was also extremely erotic. It had me going that's for sure. Who Wants To Date A Superhero by R.G. Alexander is available now from Ellora's Cave if you'd like to read it. All I can say is YUM!

I know I have been silent lately. I'm finally over being sick, but have been extremely busy because it's that time of the year. Lease renewal time. I have been getting everything done for it. And, after one last meeting next week to sign the lease, the process will be done. So, I now wanna talk about some of the awesome stuff I have been reading. First up is an ebook by Maya Banks. It's called Stay With Me.

If you find menage stories offensive, don't read this. But if you like romantic menage stories, this one rocks. It's about a woman named Cat and her two husbands, Logan and Rhys. In spite of the fact that she has two husbands, Cat is more alone than most of us with just one guy. Logan and Rhys, building up their business, have long made it a practice to forget and or postpone important events in their marriage. They are always sure Cat will be understanding.

Desperate to save her marriage to the men she loves, Cat plans a kind of second honeymoon to Jamaica. But, when her husbands not only forget their anniversary but also cancel the trip to attend to business out of town, Cat decides she has had it. She goes on her vacation alone and Logan and Rhys come home from their business trip to find Cat's gone. Now they must combine forces to win back the only person they love before it's too late. So, together they head to Jamaica to find and woo back their wife.

I loved this story. Even though it involves a polyamorous lifestyle, it shows what happens to any marriage when the husband and or husbands become workaholics and forget to put the time into their marriage. Can you say meltdown?:-) Stay With Me by Maya Banks is fantastic and is available through Samhain publishing. Just click on the link I've added if you'd like to check it out.
