Hello! I’m Candice, a thirty-one year old mother raising a precocious little boy with my real life hero-husband in Alabama. I’ve loved to read ever since I COULD read. My mother would be in the romance section of the bookstore picking up Johanna Lindsey’s or Linda Howard’s most recent book, and I would be in the kids’ section reading as many books as I could until I figured out which one I wanted to take home. When I became a teenager I started to read some of my mother’s romance novels…and I was hooked. These days I read mostly paranormal, historical and erotica (I love a well written hot story). A few of my favorite authors are Lora Leigh, Maya Banks, Shayla Black, Jaci Burton, Kresley Cole, Sherrilyn Kenyon and Lisa Kleypas. Honestly, there are more, but you get the idea.
One of my favorite books of the year was Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning. It was a dark and sexy end to her Fever series. Her heroine’s transformation from prissy pink princess to kick-butt gun toting survivor was awesome! I truly loved that it was a strong heroine that ultimately ended up with her equally strong Alpha male (yes, a capital “A”). Even though I have a Sony eReader I love opening a new hardback. The smell, the feel of it…I suppose it takes me back to my childhood days in some way. Some people may call my love of books an addiction, and I’m okay with that.
