Kerrigan Byrne is fast becoming one of my few auto buy historical romance authors. I’ve enjoyed every single release from this series so far, but The Hunter is my very favorite. An anti-hero, a saucy heroine who does what she must to survive and a love that develops despite the fact that the hero was originally hired to off the heroine. I KNOW.
My review of The Hunter.
Maybe I just have a thing for anti-heroes. The Duke of Montgomery is probably my favorite Hoyt hero to date. He’s crude, narcissistic and does all these troubling, crazy things in order to get what he wants from the Ton. He falls for his housekeeper and even though she tries to reform him, there’s just no reforming Valentine Napier. Warning: This book is hella sexy.
My review of Duke of Sin.
Will there ever be a Tessa Dare romance that I don’t love? I don’t think so.
My review of Do You Want to Start a Scandal
Enemies to lovers done exactly right. I loved how these two poked at each other, I loved the little games they played, I loved all the little undercurrents that hinted at how Joshua really felt. I especially loved the ending. Sigh.
My review of The Hating Game.
I think out of all Ms. Erickson’s series, this is my favorite. Angsty, sweet, sexy, and oh, so good. Levi is a reality TV star who meets quiet, solitary Thad while hiking the Appalachian Trail in his sister’s memory. Each are dealing with grief and loss, in different ways to be sure, but somehow they find their way to each other and fall in love. Did I mention this book is like super sexy?
My review of Overexposed
I loved every single page of this three book series. I simply couldn’t pick one over the others for this list, so I just decided that the whole series were 2016 best ofs. And if you get halfway through and suddenly feel the need to take a trip to Vermont in order to pick apples all I can say is… You’re welcome.
I loved this book hard.
Here’s a quote from my review:
I think this is one of the best rock star romances I’ve ever read. Literally everything about this book worked for me. The band, the music, the romance… everything. Highly recommend.
My review for Idol
My first Amy Harmon book, but certainly not my last. This fantasy blew me away.
Quote from my review:
Be prepared for a masterfully created world of magical creatures. Be prepared for greed, lust, honor, duty, war, violence, secrets, and above all love. I wouldn’t recommend starting this book before bed, as you will be up well into the next morning, unable to put it down.
My review for The Bird and the Sword
Kate Daniels is probably my favorite series ever. NOTHING can top Kate and Curran for me. Magic Binds is the second to last book in the series and carries on the plot arc of Roland and Kate’s battle for control of Atlanta. Also, there’s a wedding. THE WEDDING.
Joint review with Jen for Magic Binds
I love finding debut authors and I love finding new fantasy romance series to obsess over. I’ve already read the next book in this series and OMGoodness now I can not wait to get my hands on book three. Magic, Greek Gods, fantastic world-building, interesting secondary characters and two strong-willed, capable MCs falling in lurve. This book had it all and I loved every single page.
My review for A Promise of Fire
The next to last book in the Others series and carries on the series arc. I can’t think of another urban fantasy series quite like this one.
Jen’s review of Marked in Flesh
Finn is betrayed by the one person who should love him the most, but Gin won’t let anything happen to her foster brother. Yet another badass installment in the Elemental Assassins series.
My review of Bitter Bite
All I should really have to say is MORE BRISHEN AND ILDIKO! Because really, if you’ve read Radiance than you know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t I’m not sure what to say other than you need to get on that ASAP. If you need more incentive, well… Eidolon expands the world-building and character development begun in Radiance. Also, I’m pretty sure the next book will be about Serovek and Anhuset and that makes me so very happy.
My review for Eidolon
It all comes down to this, the final O’Kane book. The war with Eden is here and readers will finally have all their questions answered. Who will live? Who will die? How bad will it get before the end? Will Nessa finally get her well deserved HEA with the sexy leader of Sector Five?
This was worth the wait. And all my anxiety. LOL.
By review for Beyond Surrender
My favorite things about Fridays is that there is usually a new Innkeeper Chronicles installment. The third book in this excellent serial blew me away. I think I’ve read the last two chapter about a gazillion times already, and I got chills with every single reread. No one, I repeat no one, writes action scenes like this writing duo.
Also, my favorite new characters in this world have to be Maud and Helen.
