Celebrating… Lara Adrian

Posted January 31, 2011 by Jen in Giveaway Tags: , , , ,

Welcome to Week #1 of my Month of Celebrating.

Today I want to tell you about one of my favorite authors: Lara Adrian.  She was one of the first paranormal romance authors I discovered. Her Midnight Breed Series books are on my  “auto-purchase” list. The mythology–vampires (Breeds) are descended from a vicious alien race that landed on earth years and years ago–is so unique and intriguing. What I love about her stories is that the hot romance and overall story arc are coupled with exciting action and adventure.

After I became active on Twitter, Lara was one of the first persons I followed, and the first author to follow me back. *Squee* On different occasions, we tweeted back and forth and shared stories about books and living in New Hampshire, where we both have resided the past 10 years. I eventually had the opportunity to meet Lara in person (for more on this event see my post HERE). She was so thoughtful and kind to this fangirl.

Lara has been a big part of my first year blogging.  She always answered my questions and helped spread the word on my reviews of her books and other fun things I did this first year. She was my first author interview. She is not only one of my favorite authors, but she is an amazing lady.

To help me celebrate my one year BLOGIVERSARY and my upcoming 40th birthday, Lara has generously donated a signed copy of her latest release: Taken By Midnight (my review HERE). Thank you, Lara!! The rules for giveaway are listed below.

  1. My fave author is that is such a hard question its hard to pick just one But Lara Adrian is one in my top all time fave- and she is such a sweet person her and her assistant both are.
    I absolutely love the Midnight Breed series I can’t wait for Hunter’s book this year.


  2. I am not sure I can say just one, Lara Adrian is definitely one of them as well as JR Ward, Monica McCarty & Karen Marie Moning.

  3. My favourite authors include Jeaniene Frost, Nalini Singh and Lara Adrian 🙂 it is hard to just pick one…

    Wow, tough question. My top 5 (because I cannot choose) is Lara Adrian, Nalini Singh, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs and JR Ward. They are all on my auto-buy list.

  5. I see a lot of similar names on this list of comments!
    Favourite “word artists of love” for me include J.R. Ward, Lara Adrian, and Charlaine Harris. My next rung of favourites would be Nalini Singh, (and then this is where I only know it by the series rather than the author, so I’ll stop now before I embarrass myself with my lack of knowledge)

She has amazing books that are very uniqe to the historical romance genre and she has been amazing. She follows me on twitter answers all of my random questions and helps promot my reviews of her books.
