By day, I'm a domestic violence prosecutor. By night, I read romance to restore my faith in love, relationships, and humanity in general. 

A Crushing Series of Disappointments

Romancing the Duke - Tessa Dare Written on Your Skin - Meredith Duran Between the Devil and Ian Eversea - Julie Anne Long Last Wicked Scoundrel - Lorraine Heath The Untamed Mackenzie - Jennifer Ashley Alone with You - Shannon Stacey Just the Sexiest Man Alive - Julie James The Redhead Plays Her Hand - Alice Clayton The Countess Conspiracy  - Courtney Milan

As I'm in the middle of reading Julie James' Just the Sexiest Man Alive, and seriously not enjoying it so far, it occurs to me that I'm in the middle of a streak of disappointing let downs by favorite authors. The books attached to this post are just a few of the books and novellas I've read recently, all by authors I love enough to consider auto-buys, and all of whose most recent efforts have been (in my not-so-humble opinion) well below their usual standards. I feel like my best girls are phoning it in! Is it just me?


All of this disappointment is contributing to the reading slump I've been suffering. Maybe I need to start over with some new people. What are you reading that excites you? Bonus points for authors I've never tried.
