Fatal AffairDiscovering a new series is like finding you’ve won an all expense paid trip to someplace warm, where the drinks are cold and the view is spectacular.  Actually, it might be even better, because finding a series with a back list that promises weeks of reading enjoyment while staying home and not spending a fortune to go to a resort is more like winning the lottery.

One series I’ve yet to read is J.D. Robb’s In Death series – but I was curious so I read Marisa’s blog to find out more. What really surprised me were the comments. Almost everyone was raving about Marie Force’s Fatal Series – Fatal Affair , Fatal Justice, Fatal Consequences and the recently released novella Fatal Destiny; which by the way is now a free e-read for a limited time only

I haven’t read this series, but from the rave reviews I had to quickly download the first book to find out what everyone was talking about. It’s a romantic suspense series featuring Washington, D.C., Metro Police Detective, Sergeant Samantha “Sam” Holland and Nick Cappuano. After reading the blurbs for the later books I realize that Sam and Nick are the thread that holds the crimes/procedurals together; and as they deal with each crime their relationship grows. I’m so in on this one and can’t wait to start reading it.

I also got to thinking about all the other series that I haven’t read but that everyone raves about. I know – I’m opening myself up to the whole “What? You haven’t read that yet?” situation. But I’m going to be a big girl and openly admit – Hi, My name is Maria and I haven’t read:

AcheronSherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunter series – yes I’ve heard all about Ash and Simi and Nick –but I have no context. So when Marisa goes on and on about the immortal ancient warriors with 21st century attitudes who fight creatures that prey on mankind, ancient Gods and Goddesses who enjoy playing games with both the warriors and mortals, the quirky and fun characters, exciting action and interesting mythology, then even I’m thinking, ‘Why haven’t I read this series before?’

Another series Marisa is always going on about is Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton series; it’s one of her favorites. Of course she’s got all eight books and I made her cart them over to my house so that I could start reading The Duke and I. Now I can’t wait to find out about all the Bridgerton brothers and sisters, the Mallet of Death scene in the Viscount who Loved Me and of course the infamous Lady Whistledown.

I really enjoy Angela Knight’s Mageverse series but I’ve yet to read her Time Hunter series – which surprises the heck out me since I’m the go to ‘time travel girl’. So I’m definitely going to start with the first book in the series, Jane’s Warlord . I mean how can I resist a time traveling warrior sent back 300 years to protect an innocent from being killed by a time traveling murderer. I mean let’s face it, the very idea of going back in time to change the future is more then intriguing. Besides, it’s Angela Knight, and she knows how to tell a story.
