NEW YEAR'S BLOG HOP, C'MON & CELEBRATE 2013

 
TIME WARP FOR HOT ROMANCE
 
Best Original Erotica Romance Read This Year
My year in review goes straight to the heart...and soul. Heck let's just go for broke. And imagination.

The books which caught and hooked my attention, kept me thinking long past when I'd finished reading. 
All of them are originals.

I've read oodles over the last year, and yes, there were several good reads that were shadows of other books. As a reader and writer, I love erotica that isn't a take on another take. The first take was enough and these unique books from the opening pages had me enthralled by each author's imagination, sweeping the reader (me) into another realm. A provocative ride from start to end.

Oh, Nelly bell! So many tasty books and positively talented writers exist. Alas time waits for no reader. With diverse choices and categories in erotica romance, I was left breathless as the clock struck midnight unfurling the arrival of 2013.

Suspense, steampunk, thrillers, science fiction... I'm hoping this year opens other doors. Steamy, tantalizing thresholds too hard to resist.

What about you? Original, hot, and spicy. What left you wanting more?

Enter to win one of the grand prizes with a comment or your recommendation for original erotica stories and suggestions.
Thanks!

  56. I'm a sucker for Janet Evanovich's hilarious hybrid of comedy, mystery and romance with her Stephanie Plum series. Will Stephanie end up with Morelli or Ranger? Nineteen novels in and we still don't know, but with Grandma Mazer and Lula in tow it's always a good time.
    PS Tried to edit my post but accidentally deleted it instead. ^_* It's all good.

  57. I don't know about steamy, but The Vampire Empire trilogy is a really sweet and believable romance (it's probably suitable for YA)--and the vampires have bite and don't sparkle. It's one of my favorite series of all time.
