Magic, Death And Snow: My TBR For The Autumn Is Excessive

At the start of the year, I had a plan. It was a great plan. It involved spending my time reading, snuggling with Dexter, reading, working on my fiction, reading, watching some cool shows, reading… The key detail in this plan is the reading.

Ilona Andrews’ White Hot: Finally A Great Romantic Urban Fantasy Series

The Hidden Legacy series had a strong start with Burn For Me but I was concerned that the ending was going to lead to a lot of break up/make up nonsense in book two.

Ilona Andrews’ Burn For Me: What Makes The Hidden Legacy Series Sizzle

Alpha Women: 40 Reasons Why You Should Love Kate Daniels

Here are all the reasons why (plus what order to read all the books in!).
