The list author says: "So literate smut is probably going a little far, but how about well written books with a decent plot and strong, well-written characters? If the author can manage to throw in something a little kinky, preferably a spanking or two, then you may see me reading my kindle in public with a stupid grin on my face!"
"Another epic fantasy, and again the first three books in the series were really good. Like the romance novels I used to sneak during the 70's, these have the alpha male, strong female lead and even a few spankings."
"My theory on the whole paranormal romance genre is that in a world with real monsters the male leads can be as dangerous and tough as the pirates that were plentiful in the romance novels of my childhood. It is more paranormal urban fantasy than romance, but Barrons is the quintessential alpha male and I want him."
