Guest post and giveaway from author Hailey Edwards

Addicted to Ione

Once in a very long while, we all come across a book or series we can’t get enough of. For me, one of those authors has been Larissa Ione and it seems I’ve had her on the brain lately.

I’m reading one of her Lords of Deliverance novels, Lethal Rider, and I’m doing the happy dance because I heard there will be more Demonica books once the LOD series ends.

It’s not that I want the apocalypse to get a move on, but—more Demonica!

The other reason I’ve been thinking on Larissa has much more to do with fangirl squealing than anything else. She’s published through Grand Central Publishing. On May first, her Lords of Deliverance Compendium will be published through their new imprint, Forever Yours. On August first, I will be published through Forever Yours too. Me? Sharing a publisher with her?

Give me a minute… Phew. Sometimes my inner fangirl goes a little nuts.

I’m not sure when the new Demonica books will be released, but it can’t hurt to start preparing now if you haven’t read the previous five novels. Pleasure Unbound, the first book in the series, gave me a new fictional boyfriend. I love Eidolon. Passion Unleashed is also a favorite of mine. Wraith cracks me up. Sin Undone made me conflicted. Up to that point, I was sure I had found my soul mate in a Seminus demon. Then came Conall…

Of course, I have other favorite authors and series as well. Kresley Cole and her Immortals After Dark series are awesome. She has started a YA series I’m tempted to read because I enjoy her work so much. She’s also writing a spinoff from the IAD world following the Dacian vampires we met in Lothaire’s novel, called the Realm of Blood and Mist series.

Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files are also a favorite of mine. Patricia Briggs’s Mercy Thompson and Alpha and Omega series are also excellent reads.

How about you? What are some of your favorite series? Favorite authors?

I love growing my TBR pile, so suggest a book to me and you’ll be entered to win your choice of a title from my backlist in any digital format.

About the author:

Hailey is a small town girl at heart. She’s lived most of her life surrounded by sprawling cotton fields and rolling pastures. Her desire to explore the world without leaving the comfort of home fueled her love of reading, and writing.

Whenever life in the Deep South strikes her as too ordinary, she can be found with her nose glued to her Kindle’s screen or squinting at her monitor as she writes her next happily-ever-after. Wings and/or cupcakes are usually involved…

She loves to hear from readers.

  10. Since you´ve already mentioned IAD *love them* i think i should rec Vicky Petterson and her Zodiac series or Kim Harrison and her Rachel Morgan, both are series with one Heroine and her perils. Maybe not as much smut as IAD but you won´t have a dull moment reading them =) VP´s Zodiac is complete and KH´s the Hollows is two books away from the end.

  11. I came across a really good book from a new author to me recently which I’d recommend to anyone who like me has a dragon fetish! It’s PNR & the hero is a dragon shifter

    Surrender her touch by Kari Thomas

  12. You should definitely read any book from the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J. R. Ward, the Chicagoland Vampire series by Chloe Neill, and Bared to You by Sylvia Day
