My Top 10 List by Erin Galloway

I thought it might be fun to share with the readership the top ten lists of various readers, authors, and publishing professionals in the romance community.   It’s a way for us to get to know each other’s reading tastes a little and find out about books we may have never read but should.

Today’s list comes from publicist Erin Galloway.   Erin Galloway is a Publicist for Berkley/NAL at the Penguin Group.   She received a Master of Science in Publishing from Pace University and has been a passionate romance fan for over a decade.       She is a big fan of the paranormal fantasy romance subgenre and so her list is in that category.   In no particular order:

  • Dark Magic by Christine Feehan
  • Warrior ’s Prize by Georgina Gentry
  • Knight of a Trillion Stars by Dara Joy
  • Elizabeth’ ’s Wolf by Lora Leigh
  • Without Reservations by J. L. Langley
  • Lord of the Dark Sun by Stobie Piel
  • The Power of Two by Patti O ’Shea
  • The Perfect Gentleman by Danice Allen
  • Lover Awakened by J.R. Ward
  • All Through the Night by Suzanne Brockmann

I’ve asked a few people to participate to prime the pump but I’ll need more to keep the feature running so please don’t be shy. Email me a top ten list at jane at Every Friday, I’ll post one of them.

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    I haven’t heard of Stobie Piel, and LORD OF THE DARK SUN sounds like SF goodness. Best of all, there’s an earlier generation series behind it (in case my TBR pile wasn’t high enough).

    Would I come across as unbearably lazy if I suggested links for the titles? I always need the online equivalent of flipping it over to read the back cover.

    LORD OF THE DARK SUN is one of my favorite futuristics and it is indeed part of a series. The previous three books in order are: THE DAWN STAR, THE MIDNIGHT MOON and THE WHITE SUN. Unfortunately, most of them are out of print at this point.

    I’ve only read Piel’s THE WHITE SUN but these other books of hers sound interesting. Will have to check them out. Thanks for sharing your list.

    @Erin Galloway Thanks for coming and joining the party. I am intrigued by the Piel books. I might have to pick those up somewhere. Maybe Dorchester will re-release in digital or something.

    @Jessa Slade Nope, that is good feedback. I will provide links next time.

    Lord of the dark sun sounds great! I only read on my nook now though and did not see a copy in e-format anywhere. Too bad. I also spent some time searching for info on any other books. She doesn’t seem to have produced anything lately. Is she still writing?

    I LOVE Lord of the Dark Sun!! In fact, I think it may be due for a re-read sometime soon . . .

    @Helen: No, I checked her website a few months ago and she said something about moving on to other things than writing.

    I am so thrilled to see Patti on that list. In the interest of full disclosure, I loved her books so much I stalked her blog, and in the years since we’ve become friends, but I really believe she’s an unrecognized genius in her genre.
