Today’s fabulous Anya Bast book is: THE CHOSEN SIN!

In this sensuous and lust-filled otherworld, the Chosen are vampires fighting for their very existence.

It is Daria’s destiny to become one of them…

Daria Morris is a special forces agent with one obsession: to wreak vengeance on the brutal vampire who nearly destroyed her. Now she’s finally about to get her chance, on one condition. She must become something she detests: a vampire.

Her fate rests upon one man’s lethal bite. His name is Alejandro Martinez, and he can help her infiltrate a highly guarded group of the Chosen. But Alejandro is also a distraction for Daria. Because thirteen years ago, they shared a scorching night of passion neither has forgotten.

Now, while Daria struggles against her newfound bloodlust, the two must slip into the shadows to bring a monster to justiceβ€”even as their desire threatens to consume them. But under the cover of night, they’ll discover that it’s the darkness within that may stand in the way of their hunger for retribution…

I loved this book! It’s one of my favorites from Anya. Today’s question is: What genre did you find yourself going back to over and over in 2009?

I’ll choose a winner via random.org and list it first thing tomorrow morning! Winners have one week to claim their prize.

    It was a toss up between the old favorite… historical romance, and the new favorite…erotic romance. The two couldn’t be more different (in most cases) but I am a mood reader πŸ™‚

    I absolutely love paranormal romance. Although urban fantasy makes a very close second.

    paranormal! I love romance stories with a HEA and then to add the unique personalities and traits of the various heroes and heroines of the world of vampires, werewolves, wizards, witches, immortals, etc just adds more excitement to the story.

    I’ve just discovered paranormal romance in the past year and defiantly have kept going back to it.

    I have to say I probably read more historical romance books in 2009, although I also love paranormal romance.

    I found myself reading a LOT of science fiction this year, which is strange, since it’s not my fave genre – but a lot of good new books and some old classics came my way.

    it seems that 2009 was a year full with paranormal stories for me and I’m pretty sure 2010 will be the same πŸ˜‰

    I was a true romance reader until this year . I retired and went seeking new books/authors and discovered the fantasy and paranormals and even vampires and I am now hooked on these. Thanks for giving me a different style. susan L.

    I keep going back to paranormal romance, specifically shape shifters. My love of sci-fi started during my teen years with Dragons of Pern by Anne MacAffery. Now PR is nearing erotica more and more with Lora Leigh’s breed series and G.A. Aiken’s dragon series. I now am reading Deborah Cooke. I am addicted! Can’t get enough!!!

    HMMMM… That is a tough one. I can’t say that I really stuck to one genre this year more than any other. I do love romantic suspense and I always read erotic romance so I would say those are the two that I read most. But I do love the vamps and shifters, they always have something interesting to offer.

  21. Patti

    For most of the year it was paranormal romance, but in the last few months I discovered contemporary romance so it’s a toss-up between the two.

    For me, I was surprised that it was paranormal–that’s a relatively new genre for me, but it clearly was pretty appealing!

    I have really been getting back into historicals this year. With great authors like Elizabeth Hoyt, Tessa Dare and Meredith Duran writing really hot and sexy historical romance it has been a pleasure going back ;- )

    Well Paranormal Erotic Romance – Vamps, are what i am so drawn to. I seem to go back to that genre every chance i get. I do like so many genres of books, but vamps in an steamy book just gets me. Woooo just thinking about it makes me happy. πŸ˜€

    I kept coming back to erotic romance, usually with a paranormal twist!

    In direct contrast, I lusted after a lot of YA but never followed through with the read.

    Paras ~~ I can’t help it, there are SO many different story lines, and so many awesome stories out there, I actually have to make myself pick up a historical or contemp sometimes. It’s not that I don’t WANT to read them, it’s just that there are so many paras that I can’t miss one, lol!!
