I should have put Rachel Vincent on my list. I've only read one of her books (Blood Bound), but I loved it and I loved her writing style.

I've read everything Rachel's written except blood bound. I just haven't gotten to it yet. I like a bunch of other authors but only put the ones that have been out for a while and I like most everything they written. So I don't blame you for no adding Rachel. You've only read one of her books.

I like Stephen King but I haven't read a lot of his books so I didn't add him. I haven't read J.R. ward, but I hear good things. I like Patricia Brigg but I wouldn't call her my go to author. I have read Dean Koontz, but I hear good things.
