W is for... J.R. Ward
Moving on, today's author is one that tends to be rather polarizing. Not because of her subject matter, but because of her writing style. Readers either love her or they hate her--I haven't really found anyone who is indifferent or middle-of-the-road when it comes to their impressions.
J.R. Ward writes the wildly popular Black Dagger Brotherhood series (BDB, for those 'in the know') and more recently, the Fallen Angels series. Both are paranormal, and both are quite steamy. I've enjoyed both, but as for the BDB series, I prefer the earlier books to the more recent ones.
J.R. didn't always write paranormal romance. A few of her earlier titles have been re-released, when she was writing as Jessica Bird. I've read one of the contemporary romances, and enjoyed it. The style was nothing like her vampire books, so if you're one of those readers who doesn't enjoy the Brothers, perhaps try one of the Jessica Bird books?
What about you? Have you read any of her novels? What did you think?
