Mr. Grey, Travis Family, Thor, and More: Gifts for Your Singular Reading Tastes

Captivated by You by Sylvia DayThis time of year, it's not unusual for people to gift and receive self-help books, or to listen to music that they wish was the soundtrack for their lives. Sure, those kinds of things are fine, if that's what you're into, but what if your tastes are a bit more—to quote Mr. Grey—singular? So we've got a holiday gift list that is perfect for the romance fan, depending on your...singular tastes.

You Want a Real-Life Christian Grey:

Sylvia Day’s Crossfire series. Why? Because Gideon Cross and Eva Trammell are just as dangerously addictive and sexy as Christian Grey and Ana Steele.

J. Kenner’s Stark series. Why? Because the hero and heroine in this series are more than just their effed-up personae; Kenner delves into some real issues behind the trauma.

H&H Bloggers Recommend: Best Reads of January 2014

Wild Ones by Kristine WyllysEach month, we ask our bloggers to share the best thing they’ve read (or things, plural, if our bloggers declare a tie ’cause they just can’t choose). It doesn’t have to be a new book, as evidenced below; just something that made the month sparkle a bit more.

Without further ado, here’s the installment for January 2014 (and if you’ve missed any, be sure to check out past recs via the Related Posts section at the bottom of the post):

Sahara Hoshi

My pick is going to be Kristine Wyllys's Wild Ones. I love that Bri is an uncompromising heroine and Luke is a fantastic alpha male. In addition, the world readers are introduced to is raw, gritty, and uncompromising. I look forward to future installments in the series, hopefully one featuring Bri's bff, Jax.

Hear Me Out: The Best Audiobooks

Audiobooks? Sounds like a good idea.Perhaps this sounds familiar: As of right now, my to-be-read list is 762 books.

So how is it possible to get through more books? After thinking on it, I realized I spend a lot of time in my life doing mundane actions, like driving to work, doing the dishes, mowing the yard, folding laundry, running…and I thought why not try audio books?

Audio books turned out to be a huge win for me. Now those tasks are accompanied by an audiobook. The ironic thing, however, is that instead of whittling down that to-be-read list I have found myself picking up some of my favorite series and listening to them. No matter how many times I read a book, when someone else reads it to me…why, it is like reading it for the first time all over again!

[You could say that it feels like the very first time...]

Smooth Talking Stranger by Lisa KleypasLast week Megan Frampton asked in her Morning Coffee: Which Hero Has the Sexiest Voice? You guys gave some pretty awesome answers and so we want to make it official in this week's poll: Which Hero Has the Sexiest Voice?

Share your pick in the comments and weigh in on who you think would have the sexiest voice! Do you imagine a hero's voice when you read a romance?

Do you have a favorite accent you like a character to have? Does a character having a certain accent up their appeal like it does for some men in real life?

Fifth Grave Past the Light: Exclusive Excerpt

Never underestimate the power of a woman on a double espresso with a mocha latte chaser high.

—T-shirt

Charley Davidson isn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper.  She’s more of a paranormal private eye/grim reaper extraordinaire.  However, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. To further complicate matters, Reyes is her main suspect in an arson case.  Charley has vowed to stay away from him until she can find out the truth…but then dead women start appearing in her apartment, one after another, each lost, confused, and terrified beyond reason.  When it becomes apparent that her own sister, Gemma, is the serial killer’s next target Charley has no choice but to ask for Reyes’ help.  Arsonist or not, he’s the one man alive who could protect Gemma no matter who or what came at her. But he wants something in return. Charley. All of her, body and soul. And to keep her sister safe, it is a price she is willing to pay.

Get a sneak peek of Darynda Jones's Fifth Grave Past the Light (available July 9, 2013) with an exclusive excerpts of Chapters 1 & 2, and we know that's never enough so we have an exclusive excerpt of Chapter 3 in audio! For more Darynda Jones content, head to our collection.

T-SHIRT OFTEN SEEN ON CHARLEY DAVIDSON, A GRIM REAPER OF QUESTIONABLE MORALS

The dead guy at the end of the bar kept trying to buy me a drink. Which figured. No one else was even taking a second look and I’d dressed to the nines. Or, at the very least, the eight-and-a-halves. But the truly disturbing part of my evening was the fact that my mark, one Mr. Marvin Tidwell, blond real estate broker and suspected adulterer, actually turned down the drink I’d tried to buy him.

Turned it down!

Chose the Wrong Guy, Gave Him the Wrong Finger: Exclusive Excerpt

Ten years ago, Quinn Barton was on her way to the altar to marry Burke Morrison, her high school sweetheart, when something derailed her. Rather, someone derailed her—the Best Man who at the last minute begged her to reconsider the marriage. He told her that Burke had been cheating on her. For a long time. Quinn, stunned, hurt, and confused, struggled with the obligation of fulfilling her guests’ expectations—providing a wedding—and running for her life.

She chose running. With the Best Man. Who happened to be Burke’s brother, Frank.

That relationship didn’t work either. How could it, when Quinn had been engaged to, in love with, Frank’s brother? Quinn opted for neither, and, instead, spends the next seventeen years working in her family’s Middleburg, Virginia, bridal shop, Talk of the Gown, where she subconsciously does penance for the disservice she did to marriage.

But when the two men return to town for another wedding, old anger, hurt, and passion resurface. Just because you’ve traded the good guy for the bad guy for no guy doesn’t mean you have to stay away from love for the rest of your life, does it? Told with Beth Harbison's flair for humor and heart, Chose the Wrong Guy will keep you guessing and make you believe in the possibilities of love.

Get a sneak peek of Beth Harbison's Chose the Wrong Guy, Gave Him the Wrong Finger (available July 9, 2013) with an exclusive audio excerpt of Chapter 1!
