Guest Post: The Book Vixen

2010 was a great year for reading. The year’s not over yet but we’re certainly getting close. Looking back at the books I’ve read this year, I’ve decided to talk about a few authors that I discovered in 2010 whose books I can’t get enough of.

Jeaniene Frost

Upon the recommendation from a few fellow bloggers, I read the Night Huntress series early this year. And when I did read this series, I was hooked by the first chapter. Hands down, this is one of my favorite series, ever. Frost takes paranormal romance to a whole new level. Book two, chapter 32 - need I say more? Even the covers for each of the books in this series are sultry.

It brings me much happiness to learn that the series will now have nine books, instead of seven as originally planned. It’s the waiting part that kills. I’m looking forward to the upcoming release of This Side of the Grave (2/22/11 for those of you who would like to mark the date on their calendars) and the rest of the books in this series. I think I am going to sneak in a re-read of this series to prepare for the upcoming release of This Side of the Grave.

Shiloh Walker

I can’t remember exactly how I came to learn of Shiloh Walker but I do remember that I was really anxious to read Broken. So when she held a contest in which she was giving away ARCs for Broken, I entered. But there was a catch; you had to convince her to choose you as a winner by telling her how you would help promote the book. And convince her I did ;) I have still yet to read Fragile, the book that comes before Broken, but I do have it on my shelf waiting for me.

Walker takes two genres I enjoy reading, romance and suspense, and blends them together beautifully. And she knows how to write a hot, sizzling sex scene. From what I understand, the two books of her that I’ve read are mild compared to her other novels. I can’t wait to read some of her contemporary erotic romances.

J.A. Saare

When I started seeing Dead, Undead, or Somewhere in Between around the book blogging community, I was intrigued. When I read it I was in awe. Saare is one heck of a story teller. Her writing is expressive and comes off naturally. I enjoyed reading both Dead, Undead, or Somewhere in Between and Crimson Moon and look forward to The Renfield Syndrome and Crimson Sunrise. Not sure if I’m ready just yet, but at some point I would like to try her books written under her Aline Hunter pseudonym.

Not only do I enjoy reading Saare’s novels but I love reading her blog as well. She’s honest, hilarious and has the cutest southern accent. She’s also known for her vlogs!

Alice Clayton

Confession: I had The Unidentified Redhead in my possession for a while before reading it. I don’t know exactly why I was hesitant about reading it but if I would have known then what I know now, I would have ripped right into that book the moment I got it. I read The Redhead Revealed soon after and now I can’t wait to see what Clayton has in store for Grace and Jack next. I am anxiously looking forward to the rest of the Redhead series.

Alice Clayton mixes steamy romance, witty characters and a barrel full of laughs in her fun, laugh-out-loud reads. Her writing is provocative and the intimate scenes between her main characters are titillating. Some of these scenes made my heart palpitate.

Which authors did you discover in 2010 whose books you can’t get enough of?

I review based on many different things from the writing, to the story - to the characters and how I can relate to them or how they are developed.
