    I like Lisa Kleypas. I have enjoyed 5 of her Ravenel series and many others over the years.

    I’ve enjoyed Melanie Milbourne earlier Presents books. I’ve fallen behind the last year or two. I would love to read her current releases!

    Re: Manuscript Critique

    Day 7
    I’m running out of comments. What can I say but… I really would like someone who has experience to read my book and give me their thoughts on it.

  23. Pammie R.

    I am pretty sure that I have read several of the authors listed above. The problem is matching them to the right books. I just read. I don’t always pay attention to the authors of what I read. I should, but when I get to reading, I often forget to make note.

  24. Trudy Dowling

    The husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the Charley Davidson Series. Carly Phillips Dare Series is a must read. I haven’t read any of the others although I have some of their books in my TBR file.

  25. Mary C.

    Kim Baily, Evelyn Sola and Julie Archer are new to me authors. One favorite is The Travis series by Lisa Kleypas.

  26. Linda Ortiz

    Thank you to all the authors for the giveaway. I love Lisa Kleypas books, but I look forward to reading new authors, too.

  27. Linda Townsend

    I’ve thoroughly enjoyed many books from these authors today: Carolyn Brown, Lisa Kleypas (authored my fav book of 2002: Chasing Cassandra) and Erin Nicholas (LOVE her Boys of the Bayou and Sapphire Falls!). Looking forward to reading many more from them and others!

  28. Eva Millien

    About 1/2 are new to me but they are in great company as I love the other 1/2 so i’m sure I would love them all! Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful, safe and healthy holiday season!

  29. Jana Leah

    I love Darynda Jones’ Charley Davidson series. Kim Bailey is a new to me author.

  30. Kathy Partridge

    Love Lisa Kleypas’ Wallflower & Ravenel series. Also love Samantha Young’s On Dublin Street series.
    Evelyn Sola is new to me.

  31. anna nguyen

    darynda jones, kim bailey, evelyn sola, ann j stewart are all new to me but the rest are authors i have read. love my fallen saint by julie kenner

  32. Marcy Meyer

    Almost all of these authors are new to me. I have only read Samantha Young.

  33. Charlotte Litton

    I’ve read Lisa Kleypas, Erin Nicholas and Carolyn Brown, they rest are new to me.

  34. Glenda M

    I love Carolyn Brown’s cowboy stories. Mimi Jean Pamfiloff has some books that are absolutely hilarious – great for when you need a pick-up (like 2020 😉 ) Lisa Kleypas writes some of the best historicals around.

  35. Crystal

    Well actually I don’t have a favorite yet as all the authors listed here with paperback books are new to me. My favorite books are signed books by any author. I like to judge each book by reading it at least once. After that, I find it easier to weed the ones out but if I rate a book anywhere from 4-5 stars then there’s a good chance I’ll read the book again and who knows maybe the author would be another one of my favorite authors. Personally, I would love to win, read and yes even review signed print book or any book. Never tried audiobooks before as they are to expensive for me to buy.
    I hope I win a signed book.

  36. Melissa Greco

    Actually, all of these authors are new to me. I look forward to learning more about them.

  37. Amy Friedentag

    Love the Charley Davidson series by Darynda Jones! Samantha Young is new to me. Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

  38. diannekc

    I’ve read books by Carolyn Brown, Lisa KeePass, Darynda Jones and Julia Kenner. The rest are new to me authors.

  39. BookLady

    The Ravenels and Wallflowers series by Lisa Kleypas, the Charley Davidson series by Darynda Jones,, and The Librarian’s Vampire Assistant series and The Immortal Matchmakers,Inc. series by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff are some of my favorite books.

  40. mathlady68

    My favorites from the list are Lisa Kleypas, Darynda Jones, Carolyn Brown, Carly Phillips, Erin Nicholas! I’ve never heard of Melanie Milburne or Evelyn Sola.

  41. Tanya Guthrie

    I absolutely love Lisa Kleypas’ Wallflower and Hathaway series! I fell hard for Reyes Farrow in Darynda Jones’ Charley Davidson series! And I loved Samantha Young’s On Dublin Street!

  42. Dianna

    They’re all new authors to me! I’m more likely to read authors who have supported/worked with bloggers, so I really appreciate them offering these giveaways.

  43. Debbie P

    Most of these authors are new to me. But I am very much looking forward to read

  44. Debbie P

  48. Diana Hardt

    I have read books by Carolyn Brown and Anna J Stewart. All the other authors are new to me.

  49. Patricia B.

    I am familiar with most of the authors, if some are only in passing. Giveaway #1 and #2 are from favorite authors, Carolyn Brown and Lisa Kleypas. I enjoyed Brown’s Second Chance at Sunflower Ranch,The PMS Club, and Lucky In Love is on my TBR shelf. I have read more of Lisa Kleypas’ books. A Wallflower Christmas, Married By Morning, Only With Your Love, are some I have read and there are several on my TBR shelf.
    Giveaway #3 by Samantha Young is interesting. She is a new tome author, but the books are intriguing. The other author I like is Anna J. Stewart. Most of the other authors area bit more “something” than I usually read.

  50. flchen1

    A couple favorites include Lisa Kleypas and Erin Nicholas. Devil in Winter is a reread for me, as is just about everything Erin Nicholas has written. Carolyn Brown, Anna J Stewart, and Julie Kenner are also favorites!

  51. Terrill R.

    I’ve read the first three books in Lisa Kleypas’s Ravenel’s Series and really enjoyed them. I’ve also read a few great books by Anna J. Stewart and Samantha Young. BUT one of my Top Favorite books from 2020 is by Darynda Jones. I absolutely LOVED A Bad Day for Sunshine!

  52. Irma

    I’ve read tons of books by Lisa Kleypas, Samantha Young, Carly Phillips and Julie Kenner. Can’t wait to read others.

  53. Karina Angeles

    I love Lisa Kleypas’s historical romance and Kenner’s contemporary love stories.
