Romantic Suspense fans yippee! [11 Jan 2012|08:34pm]

I was looking around and found y'all. I LOVE romantic suspense, my personal library is nearly all romantic supence, except for my classics shelves for J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Anne MacCaffrey, The Scarlet Letter, The Odessy, The Illiyad, Beowulf and Jane Austin.

I have nearly all of the Eve Dallas series by J D Robb, and almost all the paranomal romance trillogies by Nora Roberts. I have all the romance novels, the Plum novels 1-17, Between the Plums novels and Wicked Appittie by Janet Evanovich though I have read everything she wrote. I've got most of the Sookie Stackhouse books and read all of the series so far. I've also own a lot of both Anita Blake series and Meredith Gentry series and read all the books in thoes series to date too. I have most of and read the whole of the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs. I read all the Parasol Protectorate Alexia Tarraboti books by Gail Carriger too and loved them!

Introduction and question [22 Jan 2009|06:21pm]

Hi! My name is Ragna, and I just found this community today when I clicked on the interest for Jayne Ann Krentz. I've read a good portion of her books (under that name and two of her pseudonyms, Amanda Quick and Jayne Castle) and I'm interested in knowing if there's any writers of either contemporary, historical or paranormal romance/suspense novels that I should take a look at. I'm re-reading a lot of her books and while they're enjoyable I'm looking for fresh books to find.

Hello, new member here. [18 Apr 2007|11:27pm]

[ mood | content ]

Hi all. I just joined this lovely place and thought I would say hello. I just recently got started reading romantic suspense novels and I absolutely LOVE them. I found "Killing Kelly" by Heather Graham at a Goodwill store and read it and then found myself wanting to read another. I just recently finished reading "The Island" by Heather Graham and loved it also. I am now reading "Fear No Evil" by Allison Brennan and it too is an interesting book, I can't seem to put it down for very long at all. I am the type who gets bored if the book doesn't have some excitement throughout it to keep me interested and so far I'm not disappointed at all with this genre. Of course, I have only read three from the genre but that's more than I have read in awhile.

Anyway, just wanted to do a brief introduction. I'm excited to have a place to discuss my recent romantic suspense addiction! Also, since I am rather new to the genre, some suggestions on other novels/authors would be appreciated. I have heard Nora Roberts is good so I am going to try one of her books soon but I want to try others also.

Hi, I'm April, and I'm a Sandra Brown fanatic. I didn't see her listed in anyone elses posts. I own 62 (soon to be 63 whenever Ricochet comes out in paperback!) of her books, and am only missing two. 

I highly recommend: 

- Chill Factor
- White Hot
- Witness
- Where There's Smoke

New to the community! So, hello everyone! I'm Andrea, a 21 year old receptionist. I have to say that my favorite author right now is Kay Hooper. I adore her Bishop series, and own majority of the books she's ever written.

Anyone else read the Bishop series and have a favorite? I've always been a fan of Quentin, so I was extremely happy to see him get his own book, Chill of Fear.

Oh and go figure, the day Sleeping with Fear comes out, I'll be on a plane from 8am to 7pm. Wonder if there's any bookstores near the airport that'll be open before...

New Nora Community [29 Mar 2006|10:41am]

[ mood | crazy ]

Hello! Popping in for Nora and JD Robb fans :) A new community to discuss Nora/JD Robbs specifically, along with updated news. nroberts_jdrobb


A bisexual regency novel? Bring it on! [26 Mar 2006|06:33pm]

[ mood | impressed ]

This weekend come on down and visit your friends representing such groups as the New York Area Bisexual Network, Bialogue, PFLAG-Queens, BiNet USA and the Bisexual Resource Center at the Bisexual Community's Booth at the 13th annual Original GLBT Expo.

This is the place to find out about all the various meetings, support groups & things to do for everyone in the NYC bisexual community.

The Expo, the oldest and largest business/entertainment event for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community will be back again for it’s 13th year at the Javits Convention Center in New York City. Featured events this year include a LGBT Wedding Expo, The Passport Magazine Travel Show, The New Fest LGBT Film Festival, Brini Maxwell of the InStyle Network, the winner of the Mr. Gay International 2006 and all day entertainment with top names including Sister Funk, Kim Sozzi, Brad Hampton and more. Plus there will be tons of product samplings; over 400 exhibits with new products and services; travel giveaways; door prizes and so much more.

Admission: $12 for 1 day or $18 for a 2 day pass

Also in attendance & autographing copies of her work, will be Ann Herendeen the author of the new Bisexual Regency Romance novel, “Phyllida and the Brotherhood of Philander”.

For those of you who have not read it, "Phyllida" is the story of a self-identified gay man in 1812 London who makes a marriage of convenience with a practical but impoverished lady of good family and then surprises himself--and her--by falling in love with his wife! Then meets his ideal male partner.

Like all true romances, the story has a happy ending, in every sense of those words. Those of us who have read it have found it hysterical as well as historic, and most delightfully erotic.

Some of you may be wondering why I'm helping to advertise a regency romance in a romantic suspense community, but really, this community was made to be a departure from the traditional historical/regency roots of the romance novels of yore. And boy, how could you depart any more from that when the glass ceiling of the heterosexual romance genre still remains, for the most part, in place.

Let's expand the genre! Whoo! I haven't read this book yet, can't really afford to at the moment (poor student and all that), but I just thought it needed advertising here. So if you can afford it or are just curious, check out the official ad which was posted in romancenovels.

new here.... [07 Mar 2006|05:50pm]

Just wanted to make a post and say hello. I particularly enjoy JD Robb's In Death series. I am new to making reading a hobby. I have read only one Linda Howard book, Sarah's Child. It was good. Wouldn't say it was fantastic, but it was readable nonetheless. The other series I love is J. Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series, love the triangle between Morelli/Steph/Ranger.

I just finished this week and I was so disappointed in the ending. It was really far fetched and ridiculous. Has anyone else read it?

I'm really sorry but I needed to advertise so please don't be mad. So if you guys love J.D Robb (Nora Roberts other pen name) you guys should join my new community, it's called RPG in death and my name is I_am_Eve_Dallas, check it out sometime! Thanks for letting me do that. Sorry to be disruptive.

Blue Smoke by Nora Roberts [14 Oct 2005|05:40pm]

[ mood | Leftovers are Great ]

I just finished it this morning. I didn't want to put it down but life and work got in the way so it took me 2 days to finish it. I have to say that while some authors seem to fluctuate from book to book, I've never read a Nora Roberts Book that I didn't like. That's not to say that I've read all her stuff, but what I've read and what I have in my personal library. She's never let me down. Anyone else read it or have it on your "To Read" list?

Hello. [09 Aug 2005|09:14pm]

Eep! Nobody has mentioned Lisa Gardner? I absolutely love her books. Not only are they well-written, but she does a LOT of research when writing them. She also brings back characters a lot, so you get well-invested in them (but it requires you to read all of her books so you know who she's talking about).

There's no real order, but she does go back and talk about previous characters as I said before, so to help you out:

The Perfect Husband (LG goes back about these particular characters a lot in later books)
The Other Daughter
The Third Victim (Introduces Rainie, a main player in this and other books)
The Survivors Club (Almost a separate entity from the other books b/c it has no recurring characters from other books)
The Other Accident (Introduces Kimberley, a main player in the next book)
The Killing Hour (LG's best, IMHO)
Alone (almost like The Survivors Club, but goes back to characters in The Perfect Husband)

A character that appears in almost all of the books is Pierce Quincy. I heart him.

Yeah, so I highly recommend her books. Her website's pretty good too: http://www.lisagardner.com

"Edge of Suspense" my @ss [25 Jul 2005|02:28pm]

[ mood | aggravated ]

I just finished Iris Johansen's Fatal Tide. Blech. And what sucks is she had good characters that she didn't bother to develop. A wonderful plot line and even a believable villian. But then she gave no description, no real setting, nothing but dialogue for about 90 percent of the book and not even good dialogue at that. Her heroine's reactions are false as hell and the big suspenseful revelation was so, pfft, that you didn't get near the reaction I'm sure she was going for. I'd go into more but I don't want to ruin it for anybody who actually wants to read this tripe.

Horridly disappointed. I don't think I'll ever subject myself to this author again.

Hey guys. I'm new to this community. Well I was just wondering if anyone knew any authors like Chirstina Skye, Janelle Denson, or Mary Janice Davidson? I've read their books and I love them but I can't seem to find anyone else who can match up the them. And yes I know that these authors dont even come close to writing a like but I have very weird taste in books I guess. So any sugestions?
