Thankfully, I was able to eventually find a main gig that allowed me not to need a second job, but I still love my ladies at the lib. They let me wander into the back circulation room and dig through the returned books before they get shelved. I ran in five minutes before closing one night and found true love.
Have you ever heard of the Night Huntress series? If you are into paranormal stuff, there's a decent chance you have; but if you've been wanting to read about sexy, forbidden fanged creatures and the whole Twilight mania has deterred you, then, Oh my Bones, do you need to go and pick these books up! I've read other vamp series. Some have been flighty, others are entertaining enough to satisfy boredom, but there is no real meat, if you know what I mean. The author, Jeaniene Frost, has given me a satisfactory literary charge with amazingly well-paced action, superb characterization and an actual narrative in every book. The vamps are centuries old, but they and the books are completely contemporary. Everything simply clicks in these books. Do you know how hard that is to find that on the paranormal romance shelves in today's market?
Ms. Frost writes descriptively, and in certain scenes, it's damn graphic. You might cringe at that during the violent scenes, but oh wow, you will write her a personal thank you for the way she writes the love scenes. She puts the same time and attention into each passage, and it's always just enough, never too much. Her pacing is perfect. Trust me, you will not be counting how many pages you have until the chapter ends.
Wish I had her wardrobe. . .
