Grace's Favorite Reads 2013

In 2013 I discovered many new-to-me authors. I got caught up in several series. I laughed, cried, and did the happy sigh. One book even gave me a HUGE book hangover! Here are my faves of 2013 in no particular order.

 Contemporary Romance
I'll start off with...
Jane's Melody by Ryan Winfield was a big romantic hit for me! This is the one that gave me a HUGE, two-week book hangover! I still think about this book all the time.
I Stand Before You by S.R. Grey had such an unexpected, classic romance. 

I also LOVED in this genre... 

Sex Love Repeat by Alessandra Torre

Painted Faces by L.H. Cosway

Vain by Fisher Amelie

Fear of Falling by S.L. Jennings 

The St. Helena Vineyard series by Marina Adair

The Funny
 Must Love Otters by Eliza Gordon is HILARIOUS!!!

I also laughed-out-loud with these... 

Tangled by Emma Chase

Return to Poughkeepsie by Debra Anastasia 

Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy
This year I read the entire Charley Davidson series by Darynda Jones. Charley & Reyes are smokin' HOT!!!
I got caught up with the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.R. Ward. This year I read Lover Unleashed, Lover Reborn and Lover at Last. Gotta love these vamps!

My other PNR/UF faves for 2013 include... 

South of Surrender by Laura Kaye 

Just Breathe by Kendall Grey

Romantic Suspense
This is my favorite genre. I read so many and either got caught up or started several series.
2013 was my year to fall in love with the I-Team series by Pamela Clare.  I read all the books and heart them all!!!

Hard As It Gets by Laura Kaye...I never tire of anything she writes!

Other faves include... 

Reunited in Danger by Joya Fields

The Black Knights Inc. series by Julie Ann Walker

The Phoenix Rising Series by Joan Swan 

I'm also currently addicted to the Fatal series by Marie Force

Women's Fiction
