Top Ten Tuesday: July 16th, 2019 (Top Ten Auto Buy Authors)

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

How it works:

She assigns each Tuesday a topic and then posts her top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.


Top Ten Auto Buy Authors

1). Anne Bishop—I have been hooked on her since I read her The Black Jewel Series in the early 2000’s. My favorite series is The Black Jewel Series.

2). Dean Koontz—I was introduced to Dean Koontz in high school and have been reading him since. My introduction book to him was Tick-Tock (thank to my high school BFF for telling about that book)

3). Stephen King—I have been reading Stephen King since I can remember. My grandfather introduced me to It one summer and I was hooked.

4) Teresa Medeiros—-She was the first historical romance author that I ever read. I bought Heather and Velvet at CVS one day and immediately went was hooked.

5) Julie Garwood—I started reading her historical romances shortly after I discovered Teresa Medeiros. My favorite book by her is Saving Grace. I will say that I am not a fan of her contemporary romances though.

6) Judith McNaught—I started reading her books around the same time that I started reading Julie Garwood. Except I started with her contemporary romance and migrated to historical romance. My favorite book by her is between Whitney, My Love and Perfect.

7) Laurell K. Hamilton—She was an impulse buy for me. Which I am glad that I bought. I did like the Anita Blake series but I loved the Merry Gentry series more!!

8) Neil Gaiman—I picked up Neverwhere as an impulse buy and I was hooked. My favorite books by him: Neverwhere, American Gods and Good Omens

9) V.C. Andrews—-I was not supposed to be reading her. My grandmother had a couple of her books in her library and I snuck Flowers in the Attic out. That started me on a downward spiral of reading and buying her books. My favorite series by her: The Casteel Series.

10). Siobhan Davis—She is a recent discovery by me. I didn’t think I would like bully romances until I read a couple of her books. So far, my favorite books are Cruel Intentions.

The innocent and the highwayman…
One moment Prudence Walker is living the life of a plain, dutiful orphan, searching for her lost kitten during a storm; the next she finds herself lying in a highwayman’s arms. Wounded in a foiled robbery attempt, the dreaded Scottish highwayman seems harmless enough—until he steals her will and her heart with his honeyed kisses.

The innocent lass is everything Sebastian Kerr has ever wanted but believed he could never have. When she discovers the dangerous double life he is leading, he is forced to risk his own life to save hers. It doesn’t take him long to realize that he must win the one treasure he cannot steal—Prudence’s love.

#1—-I Have A Secret (Sloane Monroe: Book 3)

I Have a Secret (Sloane Monroe Book 3) by [Bradshaw, Cheryl]

This whole series rocked but I loved this book. Sloane was on her A-game, trying to figure out who killed a former classmate at her 20-year reunion cruise.


#2 Curse of the Kingsman

Curse of the Kingsmans by [Somerville, Ethan, Daniels, Emma]

This was a dark romance set in Restoration London. I loved it because it showed that not everyone is defined by their past.


#3 The Shepherd

The Shepherd: A Shepherd Thriller by [Cross, Ethan]

This book kept me on the edge of my seat. I loved seeing the typical bad guy vs good guy played out the way it did in this book.


#4 Children of Another God

Children of Another God (Broken World Book 1) by [Southwell, T C]

This was a fantastic fantasy book that I picked up when I got my first Kindle.


#5 New Blood

New Blood (Thoroughbred Breeders Book 1) by [Meunier, Christine]

A sweet Christian romance that included horse racing. I loved it!!


#6 Daughters of the Storm

Daughters of the Storm by [Wilkins, Kim]

I loved this book because it had strong female characters. Bluebell and her sisters were badasses!!


#7 Murder in Mind (Sloane Monroe: Book 2)

Murder in Mind (Sloane Monroe Book 2) by [Bradshaw, Cheryl]

Yes, another Sloane Monroe mystery. This book was fantastic. It pitted Sloane against the serial killer who killed her sister. I was on edge for the entire book!!


#8  Dark Sonata

Dark Sonata by [Black, F.R]

Loved this book. It was a dark romance with a twist.


#9 Desolate – The Complete Trilogy

Desolate - The Complete Trilogy by [Brumm, Robert]

This series was the series that started my love for dystopia. It was fantastic. Not for anyone under 17, though. It has a ton of graphic violence that could be disturbing to some people


#10 Nobody’s Darling

Nobody's Darling by [Medeiros, Teresa]

I love anything by Teresa Medeiros. But this book was something special. Billy and Esmerelda’s romance was beautiful.

Billy Darling never enjoyed being a wanted man until the day Miss Esmerelda Fine marched into the Tumbleweed Saloon and pointed her derringer at his heart. Lucky for him, she’s a mighty poor shot. Instead of killing him, she hires him to find her runaway brother. He should turn down her offer. He should resist her charms. But he doesn’t. Because there comes a time in every man’s life when he’s got nothing left to lose…but his heart.

It was to be her greatest masquerade . . .

Pamela Darby needs a man—preferably a Highland brute with more brawn than brains. Determined to save her sister from selling her virtue, the resourceful beauty requires a strapping specimen to pose as a duke’s long-lost heir. Pamela plans to collect the generous reward, then send him on his way. Lucky for the brazen beauty, the seductive, silver-eyed highwayman who just held up their carriage could be her man . . .

Connor Kincaid has given up on his dream of restoring his clan’s honor. And now this plucky Englishwoman is asking him to take part in a risky charade that could land them both on the gallows. Never a man to resist a challenge or the allure of a beautiful woman, Connor strikes the devil’s bargain that could seal both their fates. The highwayman and the hellion journey to London as both enemies and allies—a woman who has everything to gain and a man who has nothing to lose . . . but his heart.

This week’s Throwback Thursday is a paranormal romance

Touch of Enchantment (Lennox Family Magic, #2)

Click on picture for Amazon link.

From the bestselling author of Breath of Magic and Shadows and Lace comes a beguiling new time-travel love story in the hilarious, magical voice that has made Teresa Medeiros one of the nation’s most beloved romance writers.

Heiress Tabitha Lennox considered her paranormal talents more a curse than a gift. So she dedicated her life to the cold, rational world of science. Until the day she examined the mysterious amulet her mother had left her and found herself catapulted seven centuries into the past, directly into the path of a rearing black charger ridden by a chain-mailed warrior.

Sir Colin of Ravenshaw had returned from the Crusades to find his castle in ruins, his enemy poised to overrun the land where generations of Ravenshaws had ruled. The last thing he expected was to half trample a damsel with odd garb and even odder manners. But it is her strange talent that will create trouble beyond Colin’s wildest imaginings. For everyone knows that a witch must be burned…but it is Colin’s heart that is aflame, over an enchanting woman he must not love, yet cannot live without.
