Oh, how I love discovering a new favorite author! The pure enjoyment of falling in love with a sexy alpha hero and his spunky heroine just never gets old, does it? Take Lori Foster. I don't think I've ever fallen in love with a hero so fast in my life as I did Joe Winston from Say No To Joe? When I found out she'd written a whole series around Visitation, North Carolina, I'm pretty sure I squealed. :)
Jayne Ann Krentz is another of my longtime favorites. I discovered her Amanda Quick titles first since I started off as a historical romance junkie. There was something so comforting about her books...a fun sexy read every time. When I finally decided to give contemporaries a try, I fell just as quickly in love with her JAK titles, consuming one after the other until I'd plowed through her impressive backlog of books. Some of my other longtime favorite authors are Dorothy Garlock, Karen Robards, Linda Howard, Julie Garwood, Rebecca Paisley, Elizabeth Lowell, Mary Jo Putney, Susan Elizabeth Phillips and Judith McNaught, who penned my #1 all-time favorite romance novel, A Kingdom of Dreams!
More recently I've discovered such gems as Janet Evanovich (I even bought a bottle of Bvlgari shampoo so I'd know what that sexy Ranger smells like...LOL), J.R. Ward, Lara Adrian, and most recently, Christie Craig! I simply adored Divorced, Desperate and Delicious! Funny, sexy, witty dialogue and an amazing cast of secondary characters. And it's the first in a series, so yay!
I sure hope there are readers out there who feel this way about my books, whichever genre they prefer (I write contemporary romance as Donna Marie Rogers, and erotic romance as Liza James). Tell me about a new favorite author of yours, and I'll choose a winner to receive a free download of Hot For Teacher, my latest erotic romance from eRed Sage. And don't forget to check back as I'll post the winner tonight!
High school teacher Tessa Marshall is at a club with her sister celebrating her 40th birthday when the hunk of her dreams walks through the door. He's tall, dark, and oh-so handsome. He's also ten years her junior, which makes him the perfect candidate for a night of smokin' hot birthday sex. Only it quickly becomes apparent the man is special, which scares the hell out of her since nothing can ever come of it. With regret, she slips from the room while he's sleeping, intending never to see him again.
Scott Chapman is captivated by the beautiful Tessa, and though he swore off relationships several years ago, he finds himself instantly drawn to the blonde stunner. He takes her back to his hotel room for the birthday night of her life, and soon realizes their connection is deeper than he'd imagined. When he wakes up the following morning and discovers her gone, he's disappointed. They both find out, however, that fate has a mind of its own.
