    Dana Marie Bell is one of my favorite Samhain authors. I have all of her books and reread them like crazy.

I also love Meg Benjamin, Dana Marie Bell, Lorelai James, Thea Harrison, JL Merrow, and many others. I’ve already got most of those backlist titles, so I’d love to win the gift certificate.

    Aug 11, 2013 @ 12:35:25

  62. Slick Reads
    Aug 11, 2013 @ 12:58:38

    I think for me it would be easier to list the Samhain authors that aren’t my favorites. Seriously, Samhain was the first publisher I started buying erotic romance from a few years ago and they continue to get the majority of my buying dollars. I love the authors and product from Samhain on and Marty Matthews she freakin’ rocks!

  63. Teri Lloyd
    Aug 11, 2013 @ 12:59:04

    Just one ….. no way! Thea Harrison, Jean Johnson, Lauren Dane, too many to name. My nook is getting full.

  64. Ashley F
    Aug 11, 2013 @ 12:59:23

  65. Larri

  66. Emily E
    Aug 11, 2013 @ 13:06:18

  77. Marisol
    Aug 11, 2013 @ 13:25:31

    I can’t believe that I didn’t know there were a whole bunch of Thea Harrison’s Elder Races novellas! I want these SO BAD! :)

  78. Nicole C.

    Aug 11, 2013 @ 15:15:39

    K.A. Mitchell is probably my favorite Samhain writer, but I like many of Samhain’s authors of m/m romance.

  106. Michelle - Snarky Mom
    Aug 11, 2013 @ 15:17:18

    O.M.G.!!! What an AWESOME set of books for a giveaway!! I absolutely ADORE the Lorelei James & Elle Kennedy series — and Thea Harrison would be a new author for me. (Crossing fingers & toes!!)

  107. Lynnette
    Aug 11, 2013 @ 15:19:49

    I can’t possibly recall all of the Samhain authors I’ve read and enjoyed. I do know that I’ve liked Meg Benjamin’s, Maya Banks’s, Elle Kennedy’s, and Lorelei James’s Samhain novels.

  110. Helen Marie
    Aug 11, 2013 @ 15:23:53

    All these three authors are new to me.
    Thanks so much for the giveaway!!

  111. Megan S.
    Aug 11, 2013 @ 15:25:21

    I’m with lawless: K.A. Mitchell was the first name to spring to mind, but I’m just starting Josephine Myles’s book, and I think I might have a new beloved Samhain author.

  112. Katherine
    Aug 11, 2013 @ 15:38:01

    Oooooooh! This is an awesome giveaway. I highly recommend the Lorelei James series. I’ve read ‘em all and they are v good. I’ve also read and recommend the Elle Kennedy SEALs series.

    The Thea Harrison Elder series has been on my wishlist for ages. Maybe I’ll get lucky?

  113. Amy Kathryn
    Aug 11, 2013 @ 15:38:33

    I have a whole bunch of Samhain on my ereader. Elle Kennedy, Thea Harrison, Lynne Connolly, Bianca d’Arc; they were one of the first digital publishers I found when I started reading ebooks.

  114. rebelyellniki
    Aug 11, 2013 @ 15:44:04

  116. Megan B
    Aug 11, 2013 @ 15:44:59

    Off the top of my head, the only author I know I read from Samhain was Lorelei James, but I only read one novella, so I can’t really say much about her as an author. Too small of a sample size! But the novella was good, and her entire backlist would definitely help me form an opinion :)

  117. MaryK
    Aug 11, 2013 @ 15:54:02

    Um, Ilona Andrews? I’ve also enjoyed Kimberly Dean and Hailey Edwards.

  118. Lori

    Samhain has so many great writers in their stable. I first heard of Samhain through Lorelei James and her Rough Rider Series (my absolute favorite). I read Beth Williamson-anything she writes, Mari Carr, Jayne Rylon, Lauren Dane and Dana Marie Bell to name a few. I am a huge fan.

    Marie Harte and Kelly Jamieson come to mind. I’ve only heard of the authors mentioned above but haven’t had the chance to read them yet. I really wanted to read Lorelei James even though there are already 15 books in the series. Thank you for the giveaway.

    Aug 11, 2013 @ 17:01:08

    I like so many of their authors! Thea Harrison and Lorelei James, for sure, but also R.G. Alexander, Lora Leigh, and Jayne Rylon, off the top of my head. I’m sure there are more, and lots more for me to discover. I think I have an Elle Kennedy in my “to be read” pile.

  137. Antonia
    Aug 11, 2013 @ 17:05:29

    What a great giveaway! There are so many wonderful Samhain authors that I enjoy reading, I’m not sure I can pick one favorite. And there are even more I want to try. I could have a lot of fun with that gift card. Thanks for the chance to win.

    I love the books offered on Samhain but lately haven’t had money to buy any. I have almost all of the Elle Kennedy books and absolutely love them.

  171. Julaine
    Aug 11, 2013 @ 20:09:30

    I’ve read every single one of the featured books. In fact I think I have those authors’ entire backlists and I always scoop up their work the minute a new title is released. Samhain has become my go to source for hot and steamy.

  172. Sandy D.
    Aug 11, 2013 @ 20:14:54

    Oh so many….Lauren Dane, Lorelei James and Thea Harrison are a few!

  173. Susan Romito
    Aug 11, 2013 @ 20:16:06

    I love so many of Samhains authors that it would be impossible to pick a favorite. Though I have never read Thea before – I ‘ll have to check her out!!

  174. Kate M
    Aug 11, 2013 @ 20:18:05

    There’s no way I can pick just one. Based on the Samhain authors I buy most frequently, my favorites are Jayne Rylon, Lorelei James, and Mari Carr. Love your books!

  175. Kathryn
    Aug 11, 2013 @ 20:18:15

    I have so many that it’s hard to say, but I first found Lorelei James, Maya Banks and Lauren Dane via their Samhain books so they are always some of my favs. I love Samhain because I’ve found some AMAZING authors through them and their prices for their e-books are fair :)

  204. Turophile
    Aug 11, 2013 @ 23:56:57

    Aug 12, 2013 @ 01:08:40

    I’m enjoying Thea Harrison’s books, and I have sampled many other Samhain authors.

    Here’s a trick question: How many people know how to pronounce “Samhain”???

  208. Jenny Dauksa Schaber
    Aug 12, 2013 @ 01:26:52

    You have a few authors that I love reading…Lorelei James, Anne Rainey and I didn’t realize that you also have Maya Banks

  210. Shannon Hack
    Aug 12, 2013 @ 01:59:16

    I love most the authors that publish through Samhain but specifically listing Lorelei James in this contest made me have to enter. She is such an great writer. Not only are her books steamy, they include sarcasm/humor, and have an actual plot. Her Rough Riders series were the first erotic romances I ever read and what got me hooked.

  211. michelle santiago
    Aug 12, 2013 @ 02:35:03

    Lorelei James is my favorite Samhain author.

  212. Sabine
    Aug 12, 2013 @ 04:06:39

  214. Katie
    Aug 12, 2013 @ 04:46:32

    At the moment I am a total fan of Cherrie Lynn’s Breathless. I think her up against a wall sex scene in this book (with a pierced hero) is one of the most touching and sexy love scenes I have read in a very long time. I also absolutely adore Michéle de Lully’s La Bonne and I think it’s a shame she doesn’t have any more releases, well, I assume at least under this pseudonym.

  215. Yami

  239. Carin

  240. Azucena Rodriguez

  248. Karin T
    Aug 12, 2013 @ 16:06:05

    I have a number of favorite Samhain Authors – so many it would be hard to list them all. My top three, though, are probably Dana Marie Bell, Charlie Cochrane, and Vivi Andrews.

  249. Nancy Gilliland
    Aug 12, 2013 @ 16:17:27

    What a fantastic contest…how have I missed this site??? I won’t miss it again, though.

    I really enjoyed the first of Thea Harrison’s books, Dragon Bound. Never did get around to reading those others, though…

    There are some AMAZING books on this give away! Thea Harrison is a fave of mine, and I have a couple Lorelei James on my hard drive I’m partial too. Surprised me at first because I didn’t think I was into the cowboy thing, but apparently I am!

    I’ve really enjoyed Thea Harrison and Elle Kennedy, but I haven’t read any Lorelei James or Lauren Dane and am looking forward to trying their work.

    I don’t think I’ve read enough Samhain books to make an informed decision. Obviously, I need to read more books. Any books. Published by Samhain of course.

    (Although I absolutely love “Silent Blade” by Ilona Andrews.)

    I think I have the entire backlist of all those authors, but am not sure. Awesome giveaway from Samhain though! They’re always so generous.
    As for favorite Samhain author… ack. I don’t have one – I like a lot of them, and I’m more of a “book specific” type.

    No, I don’t have a favorite Samhain author. In fact, I’m not sure *who all * the Sanhain authors are. I have read some of Donna Alward.

    Of the books pictured above, I’ve heard of the authors, but don’t know that I’ve particularly read any of them. I have been hearing a bit about Lorelei James, so have decided I need to read some of her books. But I’d love to have the chance of reading the other novels as well.
