Gentle Reader, here’s a list of the best books for escaping reality.
It has been a rough year so I figure right now we all probably need it, for some reason or another.
1. 50 Shades of Escape?
Get your kink with a side of heart warming and some of the most well written prose in commercial genre fiction.
2. Mr Darcy in a wet shirt only funny?
Hilarious cross-dressing regency romance. Fall in love with Mr North, I did.
3. John Snow getting seduced by Aragon?
Winter IS coming. (Oh yes, I went there.)
4. Princess picking the dragon over the prince?
And she learns to cook cherries jubilee. Twist that fairy tale, twist and shout!
5. Star crossed lovers, trade secrets & clashing cultures?
Star sweeping romance of space operatic proportions in one nice stand-alone story.
6. Political drama where the good girl wins?
First of three books about a brilliant lady playing the political game to win. When she can’t win? She makes up her own rules. This sweeping epic set in an alternate Japanese culture is full of honor, nobility, and fraught love affairs. But yes, the good girl wins it all in the end. (Unfortunately, not available in digital format but it is so worth picking up the mass market.)
If I were going to reread one of my own books?
