Are you suffering from a hang(L)over? As in, what to read now that you've stayed up all night reading J.R. Ward's Lover Unleashed?
Let us hook you up. We've asked our fellow Ward fanatics what to pick up if you're hungering (ha!) for more authors in a similar vein (double ha!). Here's what they suggested:
Lisa Hughey offers, “After I read the Black Dagger Brotherhood, I gravitate toward Jessica Andersen's The Final Prophecy novels. She also has very dark tortured heroes and heroines. And of course, Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunters and Weres.”
Jessica Turner, a.k.a. The Spinecracker, says, “There are so many great series starters out recently, I'd recommend starting something completely new, like Darynda Jones' First Grave on the Right, or Dianne Sylvan's Queen of Shadows to name a couple. The plots, the characters, and the writing are all top notch.”
Natasha Carty, a.k.a. WickedLilPixie, recommends “Stacia Kane's Downside Ghost Series (Unholy Ghosts, Unholy Magic, City of Ghosts) to give you a glimpse at an Alpha Female with issues to rival the brothers.”
Kinsey Holley has a variety of suggestions:"If you like . . . living vampires, you might like Lynn Viehl's Darkyn series. Lots of alpha hotness. (Lucan. Yum.)
If you like . . . Old Skool romance, you might like Catherine Coulter. Warning you right now, there's a lot of rapetastic WTF'ery, as they say at Smart Bitches, but Coulter's heroines are feisty and the heroes, no matter how asshole they start out, almost always do some serious groveling.
If you like . . . steampunk, or if you're wondering what the hell it is, you might like Meljean Brook's The Iron Duke. Phenomenal worldbuilding and a breathtaking hero.
And Larissa Benoliel offers:
“Gena Showalter's Lords of the Underworld series, because after some sexy Vamps, how about sexy demon warriors?
”Surrender the Dark by L.A. Banks—an awesome new Angel vs. Demons battle for Earth.
“Demonica Series by Larissa Ione—A Paranormal Romance Grey's Anatomy. Can it get any better than that?”
