Thirsty Thursday (20): Favorite Romance Authors

Thirsty

Thirsty Thursday is a weekly feature, hosted by Nikki & Keira @ Lazy Book Lovers, where we discuss all things swoon-worthy: from quotes, book covers, book boyfriends, and even that worth-the-wait book kiss.

This week’s topic is a hard one, not because I can’t think of anything, but because there are so many to choose from. It’s like asking me who my favorite child is (if I did have kids). This week’s all about my favorite authors. Yes, that’s a plural. I don’t know what else to do to limit it to one so I just decided not to. Mind you, this list barely scratches the surface. But these are some of my most beloved authors in romance so here you go!

Swoon Factor: Alpha-male heroes, equally strong female characters, and scorching-hot romance

Why: Her books just continue to blow my mind and reduce me to a pool of swoons. I’ve re-read my favorite books in her Psy-Changeling series a lot since I’ve read the first time.

This week is all about the almost-kisses, you know, those scenes that somehow leave the readers hanging and wanting more. I’m featuring Nalini Singh, one of my favorite authors in the paranormal romance genre, and her book, Archangel’s Blade, which is my favorite book so far from her Guild Hunter series.

Technically, it’s a Sunday but this week’s topic was really hard for me. I have zero imagination when it comes to casting my favorite book characters. But I still want to do this theme so this is me trying my best. I just decided to go with the MC pairs because casting the whole book would be like me going into space, which is never going to happen. LOL. So here we go…

Nick Scott and Jayne Morgan

Sebastian Stan as Nick Scott and Anna Torv as Jayne Morgan from PLAIN JAYNE by Laura Drewry: Besides the incredible similarity these two have with the cover actors of the book, I’d say they would have the subtle chemistry needed in a friends-to-lovers story.

Thirsty Thursday (8): Innocently Hot Cover

Thirsty

Thirsty Thursday is a weekly feature, hosted by Nikki & Keira @ Lazy Book Lovers, where we discuss all things swoon-worthy: from quotes, book covers, book boyfriends, and even that worth-the-wait book kiss.

This week, it’s all about that book cover that seems innocent and yet hot at the same time. Can a  book cover even pull this off? Well, you bet it can LOL 🙂 Here’s my pick for this week.

 

the wagerBookThe Wager by Lily Maxton

Swoon Quality: The period clothes, the body language, those closed eyes, and that sweet kiss

Why: I love historical romance novels, especially regency London, and while I enjoy the norm of book covers in this genre, this particular book cover for Lily Maxton’s second novella is just a breath of fresh air. This moment caught in the cover is so intimate and sweet that it makes me want to hug the book. LOL 🙂 I love the almost non-expression on their faces and their closed eyes (because you can just totally imagine the powerful emotions they have), the way they tenderly touch each other (with the hero’s finger on the heroine’s chin and the heroine’s  hand on the hero’s knee), and that sweet kiss. These make me feel all gooey inside. *totally melts on the floor with a deep sigh*

And plus, this novella was an amazing read. I rated it 5 stars in my review here.

 

That’s it for me for this week’s edition. Which book cover do you find innocent with that hint of sexy?

Don’t forget to check out Nikki’s and Keira’s picks this week here. My good friends Lorn @ Pakwanstripes and Duch @ Komorebi Days are also doing this feature.

 

Thirsty Thursday (7): Accidentally Sexy

Thirsty

Thirsty Thursday is a weekly feature, hosted by Nikki & Keira @ Lazy Book Lovers, where we discuss all things swoon-worthy: from quotes, book covers, book boyfriends, and even that worth-the-wait book kiss.

So, I had a tough time choosing which to feature for this week’s topic, which is Accidentally sexy – non-smutty sexy scene. But I picked from one of my favorite reads this year, The Suffragette Scandal by Courtney Milan. So, here we go…

Swoon Quality: I love Free’s and Edward’s verbal exchange! Because they’re both really smart, intelligent, and witty. And what’s not sexy about that, right?
