I've linked to the paperbacks, where available, but these are all also in nookbook format.


  1. I'm sure you deserve to be at least number 4(or higher)on any romance list but for the life of me, I can't see why almost all of the other books are there. I personally can't think what the shape shifter, vampire hunters, werewolves, and demons genre have to do with romance.

  2. I think most of these are Paranormal Romances or Romantic Suspense and well within the genre.

    There are a few though . . . Like you, I do scratch my head and say -- "This is a great book but it's not a great genre Romance book."

    The J.D. Robb book, for instance. I am going to buy that and I know I will love it. But it's a mystery, not genre Romance.

    I . . . ah . . . I don't mind being on ANY list with N.R.

  3. Yours is the only one I read on that list & I agree it was fantastic. :)

  4. Thanks so much for the kind words.

    I don't get a lot of time for reading, unfortunately. There's a whole world of paranormal/UF out there that I haven't had a chance to get familiar with.

    I did read the Carriger book -- Souless -- that I'd been keeping on my TBR shelf for a while. Loved it. And I'm looking forward to The Iron Duke, which I either have on the TBR shelf or haven't bought yet, but will.
