Reading and writing go hand-in-hand, and all good authors should read as many books as possible. I’ve been flipping through romance books since I was twelve years old (and clicking my way through ebooks more recently!), so I’ve read quite a lot of stories in the past twenty-some years. I enjoy all sorts of romantic sub-genres and heat levels, and I’m a happy reader as long as there’s a HEA guaranteed with strong, intelligent characters. Cheating and needless arguing between the hero and heroine are big no-nos for me, so you won’t find any books like that here.
My Top Ten romance books I read in 2018 are (in no particular order):
Her Forbidden Alpha – Tabitha Conall (paranormal)
Untouchable Lover – Rosalie Redd (paranormal)
Desert Hunt – Anna Lowe (paranormal)
Kiss of Steel – Bec McMaster (steampunk)
The Imposter’s Kiss – Tanya Anne Crosby (historical)
Deadly Obsession – Elle James (romantic-suspense)
Cooking with Kandy – Peggy Jaeger (romantic-suspense)
Perfect Mistake – Sophia Karlson (contemporary)
Tied and True – Marie Harte (erotic contemporary)
Guardian – Angela Knight (sci/fi)
What’s your Top Ten of the year? Have you read any of the above books? I’d love to hear your thoughts, so please comment below.

Romantic Suspense ~ Contemporary
Once you're in a prison gang, you're in it for life.
That's what Mason Harding thought until the boss accepted his resignation. After the State releases him on parole, a sexy divorcée behind the wheel of a car almost ends his life quicker than a shank. His chance encounter with Mia Eddison results in a night of passion, but her brother--his parole officer--catches them together and doesn't approve.
Mia falls hard for the cocky ex-con, but not because of his chiseled body. She vows to break through his walls and discover his secrets, but never expects those secrets to threaten her life.
When members of an organized crime ring kidnap Mia to force Mason's return to the gang, he goes up against an old friend to save the woman he loves. Will his sacrifice be enough or will everything fall apart in a blaze of gunfire?.
Warning - one seriously hot bad boy hero with a dirty mouth; one feisty heroine with a heart of gold; lots of hot sex, danger, and intrigue!
No cheating and no cliffhanger! HEA guaranteed!
