Dear Melissa and Katie,

Fantasy/Science Fiction Romances: Check out Linnea Sinclair, Robin D. 
Owens, C. L. Wilson, Sherwood Smith, Christine Warren, Nalini Singh, 
Emma Holly's Demon series (HOT) [so don't touch if you don't like 
erotica], Mary Jo Putney's The Marriage Spell and her Guardian series...

I can also send a list that someone on one of my other listservs made of 
such books if you want it.  I like Shanna Swendson's books too.  Her 
Don't Hex With Texas is already out here.  Currently according to her 
blog, book 5 is not going to get printed unless sales go up for her 
other books.  Drat it!!!  See: http://shanna-s.livejournal.com/

> I second Katie--any good recommendations?  I'm stuck waiting for

> One of the books I'm waiting for is by Shanna Swendson...she writes these

> if the stories weren't actually about the romance, because her plots are
> rather lightweight.  The first one, _Enchanted, Inc._, reads exactly like an
> enthusiastic first draft rather than a finished novel, but the others are
> better.
