thisgirllovesbaseball asked Can I say how much I love your Tumblr? I'm new in the romance genre since fresh into college I haven't had much to read besides school assigned BUT I came across J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood and from there Kresley Cole *swoon* but I don't really know any author outside of paranormal romance that I would enjoy reading. If you could throw out some books/authors for me that would be lovely...paranormal wouldn't hurt either lol. Agian I love your site :)
Thank you! I am actually pretty new to the romance thing myself, which I’m sure will not surprise the veterans here since I keep recommending the same five authors over and over. I started reading in late 2009 and have never looked back.
The suggestions I gave to MoGlo on beginner romance here are a good place to start, but if you’re looking for paranormal-specific here’s a few I’d pitch:
Bitten, by Kelley Armstrong: This is the first book in her Women of the Underworld series, and it has lots of wolfsexy werewolf sex but it’s also one of the most engaging and well-written paranormals I’ve read in a while. I haven’t tried the rest of the series, but I hear it’s pretty good.
Alpha and Omega and Hunting Ground by Patricia Briggs: Another wolfsex. Most people know Patricia Briggs for her Mercy Thompson series (I’ve only read the first), and these are set in the same universe. There’s not a WHOLE lot of sex (they are on the sweeter side), but I keep going back to them over and over. Oooh, I should probably review them.
Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress series, the first of which I reviewed here.
Larissa Ione’s Demonica series: I haven’t reviewed this one yet (but I should!), and by the time I got to the end of the series I was a little done with it, but the first three books are pretty stellar. A lot of the action takes place in a demon hospital. First one is Pleasure Unbound.
And I mentioned them both in MoGlo’s post, but you really can’t go wrong with Gail Carriger or Zoe Archer when it comes to historical paranormals.
I will watch the comments with interest, since I am always on the lookout for more supernatural sexxings.
