I'm a sucker for a great paranormal story, and these are some of my go-to authors for a romance that completely makes me buy into their worlds and fall in love with their characters.
Gwyn Cready Pamela Palmer Kresley Cole Jennifer Lyon
Sometimes you think it might be simpler to live long ago, and then you read a great romance that makes you wish you did live long ago, even if it wasn't really any simpler. These are some of my auto-buy historical authors who fit that bill perfectly.
Mary Balogh Sophia Nash Diana Gabaldon Jo Beverley Tracy Anne Warren
Some of my very favorite authors can't tell just one sort of story, and these authors cross genre boundaries, or bounce back and forth, telling incredible tales in every single category they venture.
