Do you read trashy romance novels?

I do! They are one of my vices in life, I have several series that I'm completely addicted to. That said, I don't like a novel to be nothing but sex, sex, sex, I want interesting plot in there too. I used to read the Anita Blake series by Laurel K. Hamilton when it was still interesting, but stopped several books ago because there was no plot anymore, it was just Anita having sex with 17 men at a time. 

Some of the authors I love are Karen Marie Moning, Kresley Cole, Gena Showalter, Lara Adrian, Larissa Ione, and Darynda Jones, (although hers have only have little bitty bits of sex). 

Do you read romance novels? Do they get you going? And what do you read? 

By the way, don't expect any 50 Shades love from me, I thought those were the most ridiculous, poorly written, knocked off novels ever. EVER. I could go on for days about how awful they are, not because of the bondage, but because they SUCK.

Yes!! Basics like Jude Devereaux, Johanna Lyndsey, Lisa Kleypas. I really stick to mostly historical romance.

Have you ever read Outlander? One of my friends loved it, and I enjoyed it too but it's loooooooooong. I have a thing for Scottish Highlanders. ;-)

Honestly, I never got into them. I did read the Fifty Shades series. I thought it was good but like I said I haven't read any others. Im actually looking to read more but not sure where to start. Im going to check out some of the authors you mentioned.

Start with The Highlander series by Karen Marie Moning, it segueys into her current series, The Fever, after book 5. You can get a 5 for $25 deal on Amazon and qualify for free shipping. Karen Marie Moning is amazing!!!
