Guest Post by Lori Foster

What book do you recommend everyone should read? Okay, now tell us why you picked that book!

If you’re a historical buff, Amanda Quick’s “SCANDAL” remains a favorite. I loved that story so much. Often in historical stories the heroines *can’t* be super strong because society was so restrictive. But in that book, the heroine finds her own unique ways to stand up to the hero while also winning him over, and she seems very sweet doing it!

If you’re into paranormal, I’d say “A  HUNGER LIKE NO OTHER,” from Kresley Cole. She does this totally unique thing with paranormal, making the story both tragic and hilarious, and the characters are all so original that you know them right off.

For contemporary, I fell head over heels in love with Jill Shalvis’s “AT LAST.” Amy is such a special character, and Matt... oh Matt. :::Sigh::: That book had *everything* that I love in romance. Fabulous dialogue; a hunky, Alpha, in control but oh-so-kind hero; a strong and independent heroine; a backstory that tugs at your heart but doesn’t leave you sobbing in despair; and a romance that leaves you smiling. Good stuff!

Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing your favorites, Lori!

"Run the Risk"

Publisher: HQN
Release Date: Sep 25, 2012

Summary from  

When Detective Logan Riske goes undercover to find Pepper Yates, a potential link to his best friend's unsolved murder, he vows to gain her cooperation by any means necessary. But the elusive beauty is more suspicious—and in far more danger—than he expected. And the last thing Logan needs is to start caring for her….Pepper has spent years dodging the corrupt club owner who will stop at nothing to keep her silenced. She can trust no one, not even the handsome new "construction worker" who's moved in next door. The heat between them is undeniable. But will surrendering to passion bring her the safety she so desires—or will her feelings for Logan draw them both into a killer's crosshairs?
