My Favorite Author: Laurann Dohner

At the moment Laurann Dohner is the ONLY Ellora's Cave author on my "Must Have" list. Why? Well, because I'm extremely picky about my erotic romance novels. Pain, over the top kinky, and degradation do not, a hot sex scene make, at least in my opinion. I read romance novels first and foremost for the romance, then the sex. Both of which come with their own sets of requirements. In a previous post (back when this blog was only weeks old), I explained why I hadn't picked up an erotic romance novel in YEARS. Now when I wrote that post I hadn't known that what I probably read that turned me off was in fact Erotica and NOT Erotic Romance.

Now I know better.

There are so many reasons to love Laurann Dohner's books. Sure, there's some really steamy scenes in her books, but there's also heartache and humor. Not just any humor, sarcastic humor, my absolute favorite! In her New Species series, her characters are quick with the sarcastic insults and remarks. When the hero is New Species and the heroine a human, there is bound to be some communication break downs and the fact that New Species tend to be blunt is a sure recipe for some laughs. They're also terribly romantic men as well. Contemporary males with swoon worthy personalities.

Laurann Dohner also knows the difference between an alpha male and the a-hole male that seems to be all the rage these days. Laurann's heroes are definitely dominant alpha males but they don't cross the line into control freaks that don't see the heroines as individuals or as women who can and will be equal partners in the relationship. I love her heroes and tend to measure any so called "alpha" male against hers because of the great balance and appeal of her males.

So there you have it, just a few reasons why I adore Laurann Dohner's books. Did I mention she's also on my wishlist of authors who I'd love to have a signed book from? Yep. Love her and her books.

By the way, my favorite New Species are Justice, Fury, Slade and Tiger. Just in case you were wondering ;)

  2. She is a new author for me but I have heard her New Species novels are really hot. They do! The heroes sound like alphas which I find really appealing.

  3. I just adore Laurann Dohner. I am like you where I read romance novels for the romance not for the sex. So I don't read erotica very much, but I have read every book of this series and just love them. Valiant is my personal favorite though. But Fury is good too. :)
