Join Prism Book Alliance® as CJane Elliott goes Outside the Margins today.
Okay, all. The world just keeps getting darker and more disturbing. So I’ve been hibernating lately. And with hibernation must come comfort reads.
Comfort food is also required. Here’s a comforting berry tart made by my husband:
Here are some of my m/m romance comfort reads and I want to hear from you what yours are.
Kaje Harper: Life Lessons series. A closeted cop and a teacher find each other and have to change their lives to let their relationship happen. Each comes with a child and so the whole parenting challenge is part of it. I normally don’t like to read about children in romance (because, duh, NOT romantic) but these children are realistic yet don’t overtake the narrative. We follow our guys through 4 novels and watch their relationship grow.
KJ Charles: Everything she’s written. Such a satisfying, near-perfect writer. My favorite of hers is Jackdaw, which is a side story in her Magpie series. It can be read as a stand-alone if you haven’t read the others. I think it’s the most intensely romantic of all her books, and when the village rises up to help our heroes… keyboard smash. Note that the Magpie series is historical/paranormal, but she also writes wonderful regular historicals. Her A Society of Gentleman series is another favorite of mine.
Sarah Black: Hardly anyone knows about Sarah Black, which is a shame. She’s a magnificent writer. I love her novel about ex-military guys: The General and the Horse-Lord. These men have loved each other for years but always on the downlow. When they both retire, things change. Older characters living real lives. I love how they help and support the kids, teens, and college-age characters in the story.
Eli Easton: Howl At The Moon series. I enjoy everything Eli writes but her Howl series of a town of dog shifters is so fun. It also has a sheriff and cops and a whole host of memorable townsfolk.
Charley Descoteaux: Buchanan House series. Charley always has unlikely, interesting characters and she’s now got a series set at an LGBT retreat house on the Oregon coast. I love this series!
What are your comfort reads? I would especially love to hear about less-known authors who should be added to my TBR list.
