I have read Devil’s Bargain. I have been very curious about her bear shifter series. I have not read many paranormal books, but the shifters have been my favorites. I have only read J. Kenner under her other pen name, Julie Kenner. I have read all her Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom books and have her Blood Lily Chronicles set waiting to be read. Anna Argent is new to me. I am familiar with Terri Osburn, but not yet read her books. Stella Riley is a completely new author to me.

  65. Terrill R.

    I can’t believe I haven’t read any of these authors yet. I’m really looking forward to Tracey Garvis Grave’s new book this coming year – The Girl He Used to Know.
