I make NO secret of the fact that I LOVE suspense...the grittier the better.
Sometimes I just want that creepy, make you look over shoulder read. I have NO problems sleeping, or walking in the dark alone, lol.
I love reading & listening to them ~ some of my favorites are Tess Gerritsen, Tami Hoag, JD Robb and the older Nora Roberts titles, Karen Rose, older Mariah Stewart (wow, I wish she'd go back to writing that) and now Lori Armstrong. Allison Brennan, Kay Hooper, Catherine Coulter, Linda Howard, Mary Burton, Roxanne St. Claire, Sandra Brown...I could go on and on.
The degrees of romance vary in these...some I had left behind because they'd pretty much abandoned their romance roots, but recently I've found them again, and while the stories they write aren't focused on romance, they DO have romance in them. While others are romances that have suspense & terror built around them. I LOVE them all! Can't get enough of it!
I was lucky enough to win some goodies from Laura Bradford on Twitter last week ~ she's a literary agent, who represents some amazingly talented writers http://www.bradfordlit.com/ ~ and she sent me some AWESOME swag, and a TON of books. I already have some of these, because yeah, amazing authors!!, so I'm going to SHARE the love! (are you bored yet?)
And it just so happens some Twitter friends and I were talking about books that scared them...and Cythia Eden's Deadly series came up. I LOVED this series.
LOVED it. I know Cynthia did a ton of research into serial killers, methodology, etc...and it so comes across in these books, lol. They will flat creep you out!
So Laura sent me the 2nd 2 titles in this series ~ there are 3.
So I figure it would be unfair to give someone the last 2 titles in a series, right?
So I'll pick 2 winners ~ and you guys, if you're like me and can read out of order, you'll be SO SCARED!! If not, hurry up & order the others!
These books rock!!
So to enter...tell me ~
Do you read Suspense?
Does it HAVE to have romance in it?
Got any recommendations for me? (I'm always on the hunt!)
BEST Suspense title you've read this year!
