Highlights from some of my favorite books and authors
Wendy S. Marcus: The Nurse's Not-So-Secret Scandal
The author's writing style is the perfect mix of angst, heat, sexiness and edginess. I wracked my brain trying to come up with another author (you know...one of those, if you like Author A, then you'll love Wendy Marcus,) but there's no one I can compare her to. She's original and for that reason alone she's found a lifelong fan in me.
I read The Nurse's Not-So-Secret Scandal in one sitting. And, this is embarrassing to admit, was late picking up my daughter from ballet class because I couldn't put down my Kindle.

Jennifer Probst: The Marriage Bargain
I highly recommend this book, not just for fans of category romance, but for anyone who's looking for a quick-paced, engaging, sexy and "life-like" romance.
Let me explain.
The"marriage of convenience" storyline is one of my favorites. When you add in that Alexa and Nick also were childhood friends...well, what you get is the promise of an original story--and Jennifer Probst doesn't disappoint. There were no cliches; I was never bored; the story was never predictable.
The book surprisingly opens with Alexa "casting" a love spell...and, from that moment forward, Probst continues to work her own magic.

Andrea Laurence: What Lies Beneath
Andrea Laurence is one of my new favorite authors. Here's why...
What Lies Beneath isn't just an amnesia story, it's also a story of mistaken identity. Score! Laurence took what could've been an overly-dramatic, predictable and confusing trope, twisted it, then unraveled the whole thing in eloquent prose, a realistic setting, perfect pacing, witty and honest dialogue and stellar character development.
