    5. Lacey Weatherford, An Indie author but I am loving her series "of witches and warlocks"

      Terri M

    6. Already have Thea Harrison's book. She is one of the new authors I discovered in 2011 along with Nalini Singh, Jill Shalvis, Erin Quinn, etc

    7. I just started reading Larissa Ione's Demonica books. I am onto the second book and have never read books by her before until I found the series. The series ROCKS and can't wait to read the next one as it is my favorite brother!

      Thank you for the giveaway; both books look great!

      books4me67 at ymail dot com

    8. I have two also. I just finished a book by Sybil Nelson called Priscilla the Great. Its a middle grade YA but it was an awesome book. I am currently reading Stealing Mercy by Kristy Tate. So far a very good Romance/Suspense novel.

      Thank you for your giveaway. Dragon Bound looks especially good!


    9. I have all 3 of Thea Harrison's books. She is awesome and one of the authors I discovered last year. The other is Tessa Adams and her dragon series. If I win I would like to try Katie's book "His Secret Past"
      I love these hops. I get to find “new to me” authors and revisit favorite authors.
      Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win such a great prize! <^_^>

    10. I love discovering new authors too. Last year was a big discovery year for me because it was when I first began reading Paranormal Romance. The ones that stick out are Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series and Karen Marie Moning's Fever series.

      Thanks for the giveaway opportunity and for participating in the hop. I would like to try Thea Harrison if I win.

    11. Last year I discovered Lara Adrian. And I loved her series. I would like to try His Secret Past.

    12. I have recently discovered Lori Toreland! I'll read SOUL SEDUCTION soon, seems fantastic!

      Thanks for the giveway!


    13. Ashlyn Chase. She's so funny. Her books and her. She's also a sweetheart! I've also discovered PJ Tracy in the mystery world. Her books are great! Thanks for the giveaway!

    14. I first read Lauren Dane in 2011 - now I'll be reading all of her books. I started her new series with 'Heart of Darkness' and went back & read her Brown Sibling series.
      sallans d at yahoo dot com

    15. Kevin Hearne and his Iron Druid Chronicles. Could use a bit of romance, but it's good. I passed them on to my sister who's enjoyed them as well.

    16. A new author for me was Laurann Dohner. I just started her cyborg series and think it's great so far. I can't wait to check out her other series. Since i love dragons, I'd like to read Dragon Bound by Thea Harrison. Thanks for the chance.

    17. My first choice would be secret Past....Jennifer Erin Valent is one of my new fav authors..

    18. I would love to read His Secret Past. I loved Dragon Bound. Pamela Palmer is the author that I discovered in 2011 that I loved.

    19. Dragon Bound by Thea Harrsion, I would love to win a copy of this. I just recently discovered Tara Lain and Lisa Kleypas love them both and they both have differnt styles of writing! Thanks for the chance to win.


    20. Dragon Bound sounds more up my alley but both books sound interesting. A kind of new to me author is Diana Gabaldon (just now reading Dragonfly In Amber) and so far I am enjoying her work (although at times it is a bit slow to get going). Jennifer Crusie and Sherrilyn Kenyon are relatively new to me also.

    21. I've got Dragon Bound on my TBR list. Would love it!

      I found Shannon Stacey earlier this month and really loved her book. Was sweet and easy to relate to the family. Plus she's kind of funny.

    22. I'd love to win His Secret Past.

      I recently discovered Jennifer Ashley and am on a tear reading every one of her books!

    23. An author I recently discoverd was Roni Loren. Her debut was Crash Into You and I absolutely loved it!

      Since you like Katie Reus so much I would love the chance to win that book.

    26. I've heard so many great things about Thea Harrison!! I was excited to see this book on your giveaway! A new author I like is Jean Murray. Soul Reborn is the first book in her Key To The Cursed series. I can't wait for book 2!!!
