I'm with you on the brotherhood. I only read if desperate...in short doses and skipping words.

Have you read the True Blood books?

And Laurell Kaye Hamilton has a series that my friend calls fairy porn. It is the Merry Gentry books not the vampire ones. Fairy interacts with modern world. Lots of group sex with Merry at the center.

Diane Galbadon (historical but not traditional historical romance)

Her, OG (Guess she is 27 or 28 now! 19-21 at the time...)
Separated. Divorcing. Happily working on myself.

I have read the True Blood books, and look forward to Amnesiac! Eric next season. =)

Oh, LKH. The unsexiest sex ever written. The problem I have with the group sex with Merry at the center is that even though Merry shouldn't necessarily be shot in the face like Anita (by Edward, please), I still do not understand why Merry gets to be the boning board. Like Anita. They're like the zoning board except for boning. Why these unexceptional females should get to engage in endless. fucking. negotiations. is beyond me. Literally. Endless fucking negotiations in which they negotiate who gets to fuck who and when and how and where in what order. 50 pages of talking about who gets to fuck and then 5 pages of actual fucking.

Merry Gentry is better than post-Obsidian Butterfly Anita Blake, though. At least she's not trying to pretend to have a plot, EVER. WYSIWYG.

I guarantee you that if I ever become the lead commissioner of the boning board that I will be quite generous and Jean-Claude and Asher who are FIVE HUNDRED YEARS OLD and were boning for the first 200 of those years will not have to ask my permission to bone again. The insufferable nerve of that woman. Plus she never allows any other females to do anything but absolutely suck, be JELLUS, or lick the floor at her feet. It is so wrong on so many levels.

One major innovation I appreciated in Merry Gentry was the adding of several layers of characterization to the menfolk via the triple concentric irises and the candy colored skin. Whereas in Anita Blake you really just have the intersection of hair and eye color to define male characters, here you can have white hair, green skin, and blue, green, and brighter blue eyes. THIS MEANS THEY ARE COMPLEX.

I tried to read Diana Gabaldon in like the early 90s, maybe I should read again.

I think I might also be in the mood to read some Methos-like characters if anyone knows of any Methos types running around out there. Having totes forgotten you were one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse is very sexy.

Not for nice, polite girls to read, though...

Excellent, thanks! Just reserved the first one at my library!

LadyV, I can't remember who is doing them but there is actually a new paranormal series that will be coming out featuring the Four Horsemen.

I kid you not.

I'll see if I can find out who is doing them...

RELEVANT TO MY INTERESTS!

So I guess she'll do Conquest, War, Death, Famine, because really you wouldn't want to try to sex up Pestilence, so you'd do Conquest instead. Still, I'll be impressed if she can sex up Famine. Godspeed. Pre-Kindling. Thank you!

Well I hope they are decent books in a purely indecent way.

Oh, Thread, where have you been all my life?

I got a Kindle for Christmas, which is basically an Electronic Plain Brown Wrapper, for purchasing those books one does not want the groovy lady at the bookshop who respects one and thinks one is smart to know I, I mean, one reads.

So I have all the Ilona Andrews magic/tech books, will be downloading the next Kim Harrison Hollows book the instant it comes out, and possibly everything mentioned on this thread. I didn't get past the 2nd Fever book--I forget why--should I give them another whirl, now that they can be purchased in super secret tacky squirrel mode?

I cannot read LKH anymore, which makes me sad, because the first 5 or so AB books were great fun, and the first, ehhh, say, three MG books were fun too (and more honest straight up porn). I had to stop because not only was the suck factor surpassing even my ability to ignore, but I was increasingly terrified she was going to rape Edward with AB, and then I'd have to forsake home and family to find and assassinate her.

I like the Gabaldon books very much, mostly because they satisfy the part of me that misses the Laura Ingalls Wilder books, I love the main character, and am terribly in love with the male lead, who looks like Shaun White only much larger.

I now find myself wondering whether my Revered Bookshop Doyenne is secretly just like New Attitude. Hmm.

Ever see the antics all those celebrities in hollywood and the fashion world get up to? I am pretty sure by looking they qualify as famine.


Your mileage may vary... in accordance with the prophecy.

These are chick books. Women don't want to read about men who look that way, and men don't read these books so their interest in anorexic chic is irrelevant.

OMG Inchy a new victim! You must learn of Barrons!!!

There is a threat of the ardeur assaulting Edward? What is this I don't even....

OK, confession time. I have been reading the Outlander series. Here is the dealio with this series: DG has diarreah of words. She just goes ON and ON and ON--I hate that. Each book could easily be cut by 1/3 to 1/2. AND WOULD BE BETTER THAT WAY!!!! The time travel aspect of her books is what keeps me hooked. I want to GET TO THOSE PARTS. There are literally parts of the books that make my arm hairs stand up (the skull with the teeth, OMG...), they are so awesome. BUT, you have to wade through all the drivel to get there.

I do care about the characters, though and that is why I keep reading. The sex parts aren't very well written--I've actually skipped over some of it.

I like the history and the time travel and I want to see what happens to the characters.

I haven't read her books in a long time and totally lost interest in them because I thought the male character was a big mush.
Not appealing to me in any way.
I don't really go for the betas, I guess.

Ok, if you follow the link that NA provided to new series, you'll see EXACTLY WHY Inchy likes her plain brown wrapper AKA Kindle...

Pre-ordered on my Kindle: Eternal Rider.

Anything by Maya Banks, Nikita Black (A.K.A. Nina Bruhns), Lauren Dane, Shannon McKenna, Lora Leigh, Beth Kery. These are the books you get on the nook or Kindle because you really don't want to get caught buying them in the store. I have a nook, if anyone wants to borrow something.

I love DG's Outlander series, but yes, very wordy at times. Anyone know of any other books that are like Outlander?

R. Garcia Y Robertson is supposed to be a lot like Gabaldon's books.

I always think the Hollows series needs to be reduced by 30% . I don't really care where it comes out, they are just tooooooo long.

I gave up a bit ago, did anything ever happen between the chick and that guy...Trent, I think? I wearied of waiting for that, he was the only guy who interested me.

No, not yet. But I think she is going to get it on with the demon in this next one. **dangles the lure**
