Book advise please (humerous supernatural romances) :)
« on: March 05, 2012, 02:10 PM »
Hello everyone

So I am at this point where I don't have a lot of books left that I’m really eager to read so I'm hoping that perhaps someone is willing to help me find new authors and books that I will like.

I thought I’d write who my favorite authors are, and what I like so that someone like-minded could recommend a new author that I haven’t discovered.

My favorite authors are probably Lynsay Sands, Erin McCarthy, and Katie MacAlister and Gena Showalter, but I also think Cherry Adair, J.C. Wilder, Kelley Armstrong, Nalini Singh and Christine Feehan are pretty awesome.

When it comes to the genre, I’m not too picky, but I tend to lean towards the supernatural romances and I prefer when they are a bit more lighthearted and are more humorous, although as long as they are humorous and “romantic” I’m a happy camper. Like I said, I love Erin McCarthy, Lynsay Sands and Katie MacAlister and they wrote on other topics than just vampires.

When it comes to love and sex I think they are a necessary to any book but I don’t want it to just be about the sex. For example I started books by Lori O’claire and Lora Leigh, but I found that they were not quite want I wanted. I think they were just too heavy on the dominating alpha males and sex (not that I mind either up to a certain point), and dark disturbing backgrounds. Actually even Christine Feehan ventured a little too far for me to be comfortable at times in some of the Dark books, and in particular in the last novel of Drake sisters. I actually even stopped reading ghost walkers…

If anyone could help that would be much appreciated!
Also, highly recommend the above authors and I have posted almost all books by each author except for Gena Showalter, Kelley Armstrong and Nalini Singh.

Thanks!

How about Mary Janice Davidson - her Queen Betsy series is really funny.  I know that you like paranormal which I like all of the same authors that you like but what about trying Janet Evanovich Stephanie Plum series.  They are my very favorite and incredibly funny.  I highly recommend them.

Well, if you are looking for a good supernatural read with a lot of humor and a hot romance then you definitely have to read the Charley Davidson series by Darynda Jones. They are awesome. I've laughed out loud through the whole books.

I don't know if you have just forgotten to write her down but Kresley Cole is one of my all time fav.  She is AWESOME!  Fits in there between Gena Showalter and Lynsay Sands.  Kerrelyn Sparks is also pretty good.  Sherrilyn Kenyon I love, has funny moments and awesome writing. 
All of these have that great mix of storyline, humour and ROMANCE!  Nice :D

Definately Shelly Laurenston's Pride series.. You will love her humour.. it centres around shifters and their packs and prides.. Blayne is a hybrid wolf-dog and her mate Bo is a hybrid polar bear-lion.. who plays ice hockey.. they are just one of the books.. i've read this series over and over and still laugh at Blayne and Bo. The same characters appear in all the books and they become like your friends and you wait impatiently for Shelly to write the next book.

Enjoy!!

Have you read the Fever Series by Karie Marie Moning? HIGHLY recommended. I myself read these books a few days back; and I wonder what I was waiting for; considering it's got amazing reviews. It's one of the best paranormal series I have ever read; as good as the Cat and Bones series by Jeaniene Frost. Especially the last 2 of the 5 books. Major action and revelations in them.

Hex hall, demon glass and spellbound by Rachel Hawkins are indeed a good choice:)

So i read a bunch of Shelly Laurenstons books, and I must say I really liked them :)
I'm a big fan of her writing, her humour, and I especially like how all her characters are different from each other.

Thanks for recommending them!

hey for new authors you should check out Felicity Heaton. her books are very steamy excited and paranormal ranging from all shorts plus they are incredibly cheap since she is on the opt out list. Another auther is rhyannon byrd. im sure you will love these authors if you give them a try :) i fell in love with their books. i thought id point them out seeing the authors you have read from

Re: Book advise please Samhain Publishing book,contemporary
« Reply #17 on: April 04, 2012, 06:47 AM »
Looking for a book and I dont know the author or title. The front cover is a puzzle and it has a guys abs on it (samhain) 
I remember the plot of the story its about a girl that marries her older sisters boyfriend. She was crazy about him when they were younger and followed him around everywhere. They end up getting divorced and they have a daughter. In the excerpt the ex husband is complaining about not being able to see his daughter enough. They're ordering pizza and the ex wife gets a phone call that her sisters coming back. The ex wife always thought that her ex husband would always marry her older sister I think the pregnancy was a mistake. It also says something about how the little girl likes to dress up as her dad. This book was promoted by Samhain Publishing but, its not their anymore.  I think the authors name was sarah, jodie, julie im not too sure. I would really appreciate if you could help me find this book ive been looking for it forever.

Hey rah,
You can ask Aunt Aoi. She and other STP members will help you find this book. This is where these types of post usually goes.
