Anyone got any romance author recs?

Especially for historical, vampire paranormal where everyone’s kind of a monster, gothic romance

I love Courtney Milan, liked The Red by Tiffany Reisz but haven’t read her other stuff yet, and Gail Carriger for the most part.

The Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.R. Ward and the Immortals After Dark series by Kresley Cole are both contemporary series, but they’ve got the right vibe. And IAD has historical flashbacks.

Elizabeth Hoyt writes historicals, no vampires, but I’d try her too. 

My gateway paranormal romance / urban fantasy was the Anita Blake series by Laurell K Hamilton. 

For a cool vampire novel that’s lighter on romance that a usual praranormal romance – Sunshine by Robin McKinley is beautifully written and really original.

For historical paranormal romance, I always recommend Kristen Callihan and Bec McMaster.

Backlist Book of the Month: Lost Souls by Popp…


Backlist Book of the Month: Lost Souls by Poppy Z. Brite

It’s October, which means it’s time for some queer Horror! I’m prepared to fully admit that I’m a big wimp and so I haven’t yet dipped into Lost Souls, the bloody, highly sexual, totally horrific vampire novel by the author formerly known as Poppy Z. Brite, but I do know that if you’re into queer Horror, it’s gotta be your first stop.

Lost Souls is one of the seminal texts of my youth. I read and re-read it over and over again during my teen years. It was everything to me: gothic, erotic, queer, bloody, scary, and also filled with the power of found families and friendship. 

I haven’t read it in maybe a decade, so I have no idea if it holds up. I still have the original copy that I bought back in the day– it must be over 20 years old!
