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.

Dark_LoverI can remember like it was yesterday. Although I consider myself somewhat of a risk taker, I must admit, I was nervous that first time. After all it was a new experience and I didn’t know what to expect. But I took the risk and it paid off; actually it more than paid off, it got me addicted.
