  •  Right now I'm reading the Sweet Series (5+ / 0-)

    by Maya Banks. She's a pretty popular author in the more main stream books (NY Times listedn author) and her  erotica is pretty hot. So far most of it is BDSM though with very dominant males. It's an aquired taste but if that's your kink you should like them.

    But if it IS your kink then I suggest reading Natural Law by Joey Hill. OMG...great book. Female dom, male sub.

    I have a huge girl crush on Emma Holly. Her stuff is more in line with my own likes and she's a very good writer. She makes me laugh. She also writes some "regular" romance as well.

    I could go on and on :)

      Daron's Guitar Chronicles is excellent, and if you like BDSM, try The Prince's Boy series.

    •  I knew Joey when she was juyst starting out. (2+ / 0-)

      She's a real-life submissive. She knows whereof she speaks (though at the time she wrote her first kinky stuff, my husband and I had played longer).

      Lately I gave u0. Her latest book at Barnes and Noble had a  feminist Wiccan who owns a gunshop.  Now Joey and I are boths Wiccans, but I think a witch owning a gunshop doesn't ork terribly well, but then I am a New England Yankee and she's from N. Carolina.

      I CAN recommend a book by Diane Whiteside called The Switch  with a former special forces guy as hero whio is the switch of the title. She got it right.n  Confession trime: we answered soem of her questions. Her vampire novels are cool too.

      nd I love EMma Holly.

        Natural Law was my fave book by Hill by far. Some of her other ones are good, but the relationship between Mac and Violet is excellent.

        •  It's WIccan plus gunshop for the heroine. (1+ / 0-)

          One of the few laws we have in Wicca is "Do no harm".  A LOT of witches have trouble with the idea of Wiccans int he military--my husband occasionally got flack (msotly from very young FLuffy Bunny types in their very early 20s who learned their Craft from Llewellyn Press).  It's jys that owning a  gunshop hits me as being off for a WIccan somehow.

          Joey is a very sweet, very Southern lady who works in administration of an island off the coast of NC.  We stopped being friend after I moved to GA and ocmplained about the attitudes here. I deeply offended her by disliking Southern hypocrisy, nosiness and heavy-duty Christianity.  Friendships with a SOutherner seldom survive criticism of the SOuth.  Which may be why I have zero friends here other than Kossacks!

            I mean, people rag on my hometown (Pittsburgh) all the time, but I've never broken a friendship over it.

              in their heads. I actually had one woman tell me the South didn't lose .  Pointing out that the head of your army surrendering to the head of the opposing army and the head of your "country" going to jail as a traitor usually means you lost didn't budge her an inch.  

              The interesting thing is that my MiL, born in AL and raised down here 95% of her life 9she spent a few years in CHicago and Alaska as young wife) is te one who told me that asking what church you go to ISN'T being friendly but a way of tagging where you fit int he pecking order, since churches still tend to divide along racial, political and economic lines...
