Helyce’s Recommended Summer Reading List:
This was a much more difficult task than I imagined it would be. I’ve read so many books over the last few years that there were hundreds to wade through and it’s so hard to just narrow it down to ten. So, I studied my keeper shelf and came up with the following in no particular order:
Virgin River Series by Robyn Carr
Robyn Carr’s series is by far my favorite contemporary series and I look forward to each and every release. Nearly 20 books strong, I know that may seem daunting, but if you like small town I guarantee you will enjoy this series. I recommend that you read the first three books first (Virgin River, Shelter Canyon, Whispering Rock) to truly get the feel of the town and its inhabitants.
Vacation, North Carolina Series by Lori Foster
The Vacation series by Lori Foster also takes place in a small town and is 5 books long. I loved this series which starts with Say No To Joe?. Once I read that one, I could not wait to read the rest. The good thing about this series is it’s an older one and you don’t have to wait months for the next one!
Eternal Guardians Series by Elisabeth Naughton
I love Elisabeth Naughton’s Eternal Guardians which has four books out at this time: Marked, Entwined, Tempted and Enraptured. I recommend reading in order if you choose to give them a shot.
Ghostwalkers by Christine Feehan
The Ghostwalkers by Christine Feehan is an existing series as well. Start with Shadow Game to get the complete introduction to the series.
Dirty, Broken, Tempted and Stranger by Megan Hart
I love Megan Hart. That. Is. All.
I-Team Series by Pamela Clare
Pamela Clare’s series is full of action packed adventure, hot sexy men and strong women. I love this series!
Keeping Promise Rock by Amy Lane
This was probably the hardest genre to narrow down and I still don’t think I got it right. I found it interesting that I easily could have listed ten books or series in this category alone. I have read so many great books by wonderful authors in this genre. I picked Amy Lane because she was one of the first author’s I read in this genre and I love the realistic and gritty approach she uses in each of her stories.
Shades of Gray by Brooke McKinley
Brooke McKinley writes a wonderful story of two men brought together by circumstance who fall in love.
Coda Books Series by Marie Sexton
Marie Sexton’s Coda Books are just fantastic. Strawberries for Dessert will touch your heart and break it at the same time, but you might want to start with Promises which is book one.
Florida Books Series by K.A. Mitchell
Lastly, K.A. Mitchell’s Florida Books. So good; at minimum you need to read Collision Course. You will fall in love with Joey. I dare you not to!
