You’ll find it on the VBC paranormal romance recommendations page for a reason. All her couples spark with sexual tension.

Top 10 Swoon-Worthy Heroes (2012) Every year, I compile the standard year-end best books list—read 2012′s best reads list—and it’s a hard task narrowing things down. What’s harder though is picking the ten heroes from novels published this year to make my annual swoon-worthy list. Last year Eve Silver’s Lokan took top honors and the year before Stacia Kane’s Terrible was causing fevers all over the...

Plus, of course, we have your winner for the reader’s choice best book. (See the Best Of lists...
