I don’t know about you, but good books make everything better, at least for the time it takes to read a book. I think authors forget this. As an author it’s easy to get caught up in the brilliant plot twists and surprise ending. Trying to tell a story like no other is the goal. But when I want “comfort reading” I don’t pull out something with a chilling ending that leaves me devastated, just like real life. I go for the story where the good guys win, the heroine is adored and the hero sets the world back on course.
Here is a list of my comfort reads. This is in no particular order. I’ve read all these books many times.
MacKenzie’s Mountain – Linda Howard
(Then I must read the rest of the MacKenzie’s series and that makes for hours of feel good reading.)
Midnight Man- Lisa M Rice
(again, I must then read the rest of the Midnight series and enjoy every minute of it)
Dark Prince – Christine Feehan
Dark Fire – Christine Feehan
Kiss of the Highlander – Karen Marie Moning
(Directly, I’m compelled to read every book by Karen Marie Moning, again. This means days of bliss.)
Fur Factor- Christine Warren
Redemption – Shelby Morgen
Tempting the Beast – Lora Leigh
Elizabeth’s Wolf –Lora Leigh
So what do you read for comfort? Or do you?
