Last week I reviewed Shadow Woman by Linda Howard, and expressed my disappointment in the latest installment from a much-loved author. Usually, when this happens, I reread old favorites. This time, however, I’ve been listening to all my old favorites on audiobook (I can get them from my library now!), so that wasn’t an option for me. Thus, finishing Shadow Woman left me with a craving–and it’s one I need help filling.
Lately, I have not been reading much Romantic Suspense. Indeed, I have not been reading much adult fiction (why is it that publishers seem most willing to send review copies of YA?), and this is a fact that I’ve been wanting to change. I’m in the mood for a good thriller with an alpha hero and a well-written non-romantic storyline. Heck, I’ll even take a non-alpha hero…so long as he’s hot.
Who does this style well? Linda Howard, obviously. But I also love:
- Pamela Clare’s I-Team series
- Maya Banks’ KGI series
- Anne Stuart’s Ice series
Now it’s your turn! Who are your Romantic Suspense standards? Here are a few authors I’ve heard about, but never read:
- Suzanne Brockmann
- Karen Rose
- Elizabeth Lowell
- Roxanne St. Clair
- Cindy Gerard
Where do I even start with these ladies? Would you recommend them, or do you have better suggestions? C’mon, guys! Help a girl out!
