This Friday the 13th, we’d like to bring to mind images of romance and great reads, rather than the gloom, doom, bad luck, and homicidal maniacs that are usually associated with the day. So, with that in mind, we bring you our top 13 favorite go-to authors (i.e.: authors who have NEVER let us down) and a few of our favorite reads from each. Enjoy!
The undisputed queen of the alpha male romance.
A lady who can make you laugh and cry and swoon all over the course of one book.
Writer of sexy alpha males, strong heroines, and snark. Lots and lots of snark.
There’s a reason why she’s been on so many bestseller lists so many times. That’s all I’m sayin’.
Smart romance with heart.
Queen of the comfort read
I think I’m in an abusive relationship with her. She breaks my heart over and over again, and I keep coming back for more (happily).
Creator of gorgeous prose and bad boys I SHOULD hate but really, really (somehow) end up loving.
Laughs and sexy times and book boyfriends you’d KILL to meet in real life.
Paranormal, humor, contemporary, dark and scary...this woman can write the crap out of all of it. Hell, we even love her fanfiction.
The hottest cover models wrapped around books that you can re-read a million times and never get sick of.
An author who can even turn tropes I normally hate into books I adore.
Queen of the meet-cute.
What about y’all? Who are your top 13? Let us know! We’d love to hear from you!
