Best of 2011–part 2
So, I’m kicking off the new year by pimping a few of my favorites of last year. Here are the last six categories of the Best of 2011.
This was a toughie because of my exceedingly high standards for heroines. So to even be in the running is a miraculous feat.
Runner up - Pia was truly a heroine of note, and worthy of her mate and title.
In this category, their was a tie for winner. I couldn’t pick one over the other because they were both absolutely perfect.
Ash and her dead pan delivery and utter lack of artifice made her one of the best heroines I have ever run across. Meljean Brook knows her stuff without a doubt.
Rowan was one of the funniest kick ass heroines of the year. She didn’t take crap or prisoners and her viciousness made her one of my picks.
Best Hero -
Eeeks, soooo many wonderful choices……. I finally settled on the most tragically damaged of my harem. *sigh* Just heartbreaking…
Runner up -Veck is doomed from the get go and just had me from his first appearance. His innate sense of justice and fear of stepping over the line was solid gold.
Winner - Seth was one of the most tragic characters in any book I have ever read. I wanted to wrap him up and feed him cookies. ( and after he had recovered…. maybe some other stuff)
Best New Series-
Runner up - Rosalie Lario’s Demons of Infernum series is unbelievable and this group of half-brothers are uber sexy.
Winner - The writing duo of Gayle Donnelly and Robyn MacKenzie hit the nail on the head with this book. They probably could have taken a spot in most of the categories.
Best New Author-
Runner up – Deena Remiel’s break out book Trinity established this debut author as a force to be reckoned with.
Winner - Ms. Roane’s Vampire Angels are the epitome of sexy. Keep the fire burning! Well done.
Best Series Overall for 2011 -
Runner up – J.E. Hopkin’s Misfits of the Lore is truly an undiscovered gem. Unique, witty, and extremely hot.
Winner and still undisputed champion -
I may stray from time to time, but these Brothers own me heart and soul……
And finally the last category of 2011
Best Overall -
Runner up - For putting SK back on top!
Winner - This was just an amazing book. I can’t give it enough props.
