Yesterday I got a surprise in the mail! A hardcover, special 2-in-1 edition Secrets Volumes 11 & 12. Technically, it shouldn't have been a surprise because I ordered it, I'd just completely forgot about it. And I got a really good deal too. Found it on Amazon for something like 4 cents. There's a point to my story, I promise.
A few years ago I discovered erotic romance author Lisa Marie Rice and in my quest to find everything ever written by her, I stumbled across Red Sage's Secrets (Volume 9 to be exact). Thanks to my obsessive search, I discovered another now-favorite author, Kimberly Dean. She's the reason I was looking for Volume 11 and when I saw the two in one special, I couldn't pass it up. She's written short stories/novellas for Black Lace, Avon Red, Ellora's Cave, and Red Sage. She also has some releases with Pocket, but I haven't had a chance to pick them up yet :) Have you ever read an author and wondered why you'd never heard of them before? Maybe she's really popular and I'm just jumping on the bandwagon late, but after reading her I felt like 'Hey, I should have known about her before now!' She knows how to write men who are men and I love that.
Who are your favorite authors and how did you discover them?
