Books Recs

Looking for something to read? I've got a couple of suggestions for you - and I'm not just recommending these because I've been a huge fan of the author for years.

Let's temporarily forget everything I've ranted about when it comes to the insane popularity of vampire stories. Do you like the Southern Vampire books or the Anita Blake series? Good. I've found something better for you:

Possession by Rosalie Stanton is... amazingly hot. Since all my synapses are fried from writing blubs and a synopsis, here's what the publisher's blurb is on Ms. Stanton's book:

"Arianna is a demon hunter who isolates herself from society. Over the past few months she has become increasingly dependent on her uncertain alliance with Kade, a vampire informant who literally stepped out of the shadows and into her life.

On the night of a rumored attack from a group of demons, called Eros, who feed off passion for sustenance, Arianna meets with Kade to plan a counterattack before the demons can strike. However, upon retreating to Kade’s apartment for supplies, both Arianna and Kade are overwhelmed with a sudden rush of passion. Their bodies refuse to obey their minds, and before they can stop themselves, they are engaged in endless rounds of lovemaking. Lost to pleasure even as their minds fight sensation and each other, Kade surrenders to his love for Arianna, and tries to convince her he is what she’s needed all along.

Sometimes, possession is mutual."

Seriously? This book is awesome.

Like a little less urban fantasy with your steamy romance? Then I suggest
Firsts by, again, Roaslie Stanton.
From the publisher: "Savannah is looking at entering college as a virgin. After getting her heart shattered by one of the high school's notorious playboys, she turns to her best friend, Thorn, and implores him to help her solve the tiny problem of her virginity. What she doesn't know is Thorn has been in love with her since the second he laid eyes on her, and asking him to touch what he can't have is nothing less than torture. After succumbing to her advances, Thorn makes it his mission to convey everything he hasn't been able to put into words into touch, hoping Savannah will feel in his hands and mouth what she has never seen in his eyes."

Wonderfully fleshed out (no pun intended) characters (which, sadly, a lot of erotic romances lack) and better writing than you'll find in many, many "best selling" books.

So... What are you still doing reading here? You should be buying e-books. Go on! What are you waiting for?
