This week I'm reading a new to me author Erica Hayes. The book came as a recommendation and it's how I pick most of my new authors. My friends know what I like and how picky I am, so I usually take their suggestion seriously. I'm enjoying this story. First, because it's based in a location I've never been to, Melbourne, and the writer gives the city such flavor that I almost feel like I've been there. Second, it's a love story between a succubus and an incubus, enough said. Third, Erica really made an effort in her world building. Fourth, I haven't found a crack in her story or plot and those who had me CP for them know how much of stickler I am to detail. I'm Annie Nicholas and I recommend this read.
What I'd love to see in the book stores? Ever since Sandra Sookoo started her journey on writing some paranormal historicals, the wheels in my head have been turning. I haven't read many historicals (I've read one) but if they threw in a vampire or shifter I'd definitely be more into the story. Why not vampires in ancient Eygpt or Aztec? Shifters during the Black Plague? Mermaids in Atlantis? I'd love to write some of these stories BUT I hate research and I know historicals take a lot of knowledge.
