Richelle Mead

I had heard about or seen several books I thought looked good but they were not the first of the series or I already had too big of a stack and put them aside. It was Vampire Adademy that sent me to the web to find out more. If I hadn't just gone on a bit of a spending spree, I'd be at the book store right now picking up Frostbite.

Immortal: Love Stories With Bite - Blue Moon

Eternal Lover - City of Demons
