Answer: My automatic author buys are Christine Feehan and J.R. Ward, and Sherrilyn Kenyon.
Christine Feehan is a #1 New York Timesbestselling author, with 78 published works in seven different series: Dark Series, GhostWalker Series, Leopard Series, Drake Sisters Series, Sea Haven Series, Shadow Series, and Torpedo Ink Series. All seven of her series have hit the #1 spot on the New York Times bestseller list.
Christine lives in the beautiful Redwoods near the ocean on California’s Pacific North Coast surrounded by family, friends and several dogs.
I was introduced to this author by an old work colleague, as soon as I read Dark Fire, I was hooked ….
I then brought as many as I could of the Dark series, from there it was her leopard series and the rest of her series. I pre-order all her books. I have a selection of hardback, paperback, audio and kindle.
Sherrilyn Keynon …..
Sherrilyn is best known for her Dark-Hunter series that she first published in 1984, which comprise the Dark-Hunters, Were-Hunters, Dream-Hunters, Lords of Avalon, Chronicles of Nick and Hellchasers stories. The books deviate from traditional vampire stories in that the vampires, called Daimons, only live twenty-seven years due to a curse from the god Apollo who appears frequently in the series. To elongate their lives, the Daimon vampires are forced to take human souls in order to live. Apollo’s sister, the goddess Artemis, set up an army of immortal warriors called the Dark-Hunters to kill the Daimons and free the human souls before the souls die. A few of the original Dark-Hunter heroes were taken out of fantasy stories Sherrilyn wrote in middle and high school.
During the mid-1980s, while working for a small science fiction magazine called The Cutting Edge, her boss asked her to write a long-running serial for the magazine. She brought many of her favorite characters from her previous fantasies into one larger series. This was the start of the Dark-Hunter world.
Her series is completely different from CF (Christine Feehan) and there are several spin offs that all interlink with each other.
And finally ……
J. R. Ward ……
J.R. Ward is the author of over thirty novels, including those in her #1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling series, The Black Dagger Brotherhood. There are more than 15 million copies of Ward’s novels in print worldwide and they have been published in 25 different countries around the world.
After graduating from law school, Ward began working in healthcare in Boston and spent many years as Chief of Staff of one of the premier academic medical centers in the nation. She lives in the south with her incredibly supportive husband and her beloved golden retriever. Writing has always been her passion and her idea of heaven is a whole day of nothing but her computer, her dog and her coffee pot.
This series had to be one of the best, full of sarcasm, humour and heartache. The characters are just a really good read.
So there you have it, my three most favourite authors. I have a few others that I like and I will buy ….
Kresley Cole …… Immortals after Dark
Alexandra Ivy ….. Guardians of Eternity
Lara Adrian ….. Midnight Breed.
Coreen Callahan ….. Dragon fury series.
Gena Showalter…… Lords of the Underworld.
They are my go to authors and my authors to buy if I have spare cash 😉
