What Ya Reading???
Of all the gifts I could receive on Valentine’s Day, one of my favorite would have to be a gift card to the bookstore. As a matter of fact, my lovely hubby gave me one for Christmas this year, and I had so much fun spending it! I found 2 new-to-me authors who luckily had out several books in their series each and I was able to purchase in bulk. Unfortunately, that also meant I wasn’t getting as much writing done, but I couldn’t resist. These books were like caffeine to an addict. I had to have my daily fix! Now, I’ve read everything they have out in those series and am eagerly awaiting the next releases. The next best thing would be sharing these authors with you!
So here are my newest reading obsessions:
Jami Alden: The Gemini Men series
What do you get when you combine a trio of hot brothers, women who know just which buttons to push, and rampant murderers on the loose? A darn good read, that’s what!
Jami Alden’s trilogy on the Gemini brothers, private investigators and security specialists, are wonderful romantic suspense with lots of spicy sex scenes and mysteries that can and do surprise you. The newest is UNLEASHED, the last Gemini brother in his quest to clear a woman he loved long ago from a murder wrap, while not getting himself swept back up into his attraction for her. (Like he’ll ever succeed at that!) These guys are strong, sometimes *ssholes, but always fall hard for the women that sweep into their lives. YummO!
Larissa Ione: Demonica Series
I’m not sure how I’ve missed seeing this author before, considering there are 4 books currently out in this hot paranormal series. Larissa sets up her own paranormal world pitting demonic forces against the Aegis (humans dedicated to protecting humankind from demons and others). She started the series off with Seminus demon brothers (BTW, those are SEX DEMONS! Yowza!) who blew the lid off the hottie charts! These are your typical bad boys in demon form. But the women who tame them are just as bad. ;) If you like paranormal (including demons, vampires, weres, ghosts, and fallen angels), you won’t want to miss out on this series. I gave the first 2 books to my sister after I finished reading them, and she got really upset with me… because she’s so busy devouring them like I did that she’s not getting any writing done either. What can I say? I must share the procrastination… uh, wealth. :)
The newest book in the series is ECSTASY UNVEILED, pitting a Seminus demon against an earthbound angel. Talk about power plays! My next indulgence will be to check out the series she writes with author Stephanie Tyler under the pseudonym Sydney Croft. Those sound good too. Maybe as a reward when I have actually gotten some work done…
So tell me, what are your newest reads? Found a new (or new-to-you) author lately? A great new release by one of your must-have authors? Tell us all about them and share the, um, wealth. :)
