Top Ten “Gateway” Books/Authors in my Reading Journey…


something wonderful until you
Judith McNaught. Her books were my introduction to historical romance. I burned through her book list, reading one book after another. Some of her works are included in my list of most memorable and favorites of all time.


  this heart of mine match me if you can
Susan Elizabeth Phillips. She remains as one of my favorite Contemporary Romance authors. I’ve read everything she wrote and I will read everything she will write. She introduced me to a contemporary romance genre that’s fun and hilarious, swoon worthy, and heartwarming.


harry potter 4 harry potter 3 harry potter and the deathly hallows
The Harry Potter series. This series introduced me to fantasy books and it was one of the series that I remember reading that was out of my comfort zone at that time. This was basically a great but totally worth it leap of faith.


twilight eclipse
The Twilight series. Another branching out in my reading journey. And no matter what some people may say, I really enjoyed this series.


hostage to pleasure 10 kiss of snow angel's blood

Book Blurb:

She might look like an angel…

The moment orphaned American heiress Titania “Tansy” Danforth arrives on English shores she cuts a swath through Sussex, enslaving hearts and stealing beaux. She knows she’s destined for a spectacular titled marriage—but the only man who fascinates her couldn’t be more infamous…or less interested.

…but it takes a devil to know one…

A hardened veteran of war, inveterate rogue Ian Eversea keeps women enthralled, his heart guarded and his options open: why should he succumb to the shackles of marriage when devastating good looks and Eversea charm make seduction so easy?

…and Heaven has never been hotter.

When Ian is forced to call her on her game, he never dreams the unmasked Tansy—vulnerable, brave, achingly sensual—will tempt him beyond endurance. And fight as he will, this notorious bachelor who stood down enemies on a battlefield might finally surrender his heart…and be brought to his knees by love.
