  1. Hailey Turner’s A Ferry of Bones and Gold (Soulbound 1)was amazing!
    SJ Himes’ The Necromancer’s Reckoning was another brilliant edition to the Beacon Hill Sorcerer series

  2. I’ve really enjoyed EJ Russell’s spin on fantasy/paranormal tropes as well! “The Artist’s Touch” as well as “Single White Incubus” were both fun reads for me!

  3. Picking favorites is always hard, but I’m gonna go for Score by A.E. Wasp. I especially love that’s it not just about finding your soulmate, but also about finding family.

  4. Seeing the prize is Dreamspinner, I’ll shout out for the Aussie storylines in their 2018 Advent Calendar. Warm, familiar and refreshing. Jeff Adams continues to impress with the Codename: Winger series (NA/YA). I have been selective from the Dreamspun Desires series, but Staggered Cove Station was a strong read. Looking forward to the next Merrychurch Mystery from KC Wells. And finally a shout out for Nic Starr (go Aussie) for Lies & Deception, an MC trope with the realism of anti-bikie legislation in Australia.

  5. His Cocky Valet by Cole McCade was everything ! Witty, heartbreaking, dominant, heartwarming and endearing. Strong written with amazing personalities !

  6. I love, Love, LOVE Amy Lane’s Homebird, I’ve read it 3 times already, it’s such a feel good pick me up, it’s become a favourite I even like Crispin’s friends.

  7. Some of my favorites in 2018 included Joshua’s Rainbow by Victoria Sue, Exploration by Quinn Ward, Squared Away by Annabeth Albert, and Trying It by Riley Hart and Devon McCormack.

  8. Making a choice is even more difficult year than last. There were even books I loved that weren’t there. What a great year for gay romance.

  9. It’s extremely difficult to choose!! I was so fortunate to have read soooooo many incredible books!! I’ll just list some I can remember off the top of my head…
    Lisa Oliver’s new Dragon series as well as the Cloverleah books
    Hailey Turner’s A Ferry of Bones& Gold
    Amanda Turner’s Shadowing the Light
    So many more!!!
    There are so many incredible authors here!!

  10. I loved Evolved audiobook, the story was very good and narration was perfect and characters were amazing. Must read for everyone who enjoy romance with a bit of AI.

  11. This was impossible! Of the ones I’ve read, I wanted to choose them all. You really can’t go wrong with any of these.

  12. This is a great list with awesome books and authors. I wish i could choose them all 🙂 But my pick is Rainbow Place by Jay Northcote and Alaska by Cate Ashwood. But like i said i could have easely picked more 😉

  13. So many to choose from, wish I could vote for a bunch of them. Also, so new authors to check out.

  14. That’s a great list, so tough to just choose 2. Good luck to all of the fabulous authors.

  15. I just read/listened to Evolve by N.R. Walker over Christmas vacation, loved it! So different than anything I’ve read before, really endearing!

  16. Had to go with C.S. Poe “Southernmost Murder”. Also love her Snow & Winter series. Lots of talented authors to choose from.

  17. Great list, i wish i could vote for all of them 🙂 I did choose Jay Northcote and Cate Ashwood but it could have easely picked more books/authors because this is an awesome list.

  18. I am a big fan of the Enchanter’s Flame by Michele Notaro and A Ferry of Bones & Gold by Hailey Turner. I would have voted a couple more though.

  19. Great list. I would love to vote for more but i did vote for Jay Northcote and Cate Ashwood. But i could have easily picked more books/authors 😉

  20. A great list. I actually read several of the books on the list and had a difficult time choosing! Thanks for the giveaway.

  21. So many great choices here! Wow.
    Thanks for chance.
    Really enjoyed Lavender Shores series by Rosalind Abel.

  22. BOY SHATTERED was amazing — suspenseful, moving, and engaging. Solid characters and plot (including a twist I didn’t see coming!).

  23. Would have picked several if I could but I had to go with Mary Calmes (Twisted and Tied)! Her books never fail and when combined in audio form with Tristan James…..pure gold!!

  24. I’m a big fan of Victoria Sue, but I also love books by Andrew Grey, RJ Scott, Charlie Cochet, Amy Lane, Mary Calmes and Amber Kell.

  25. Quite a few on my list made it here; and here’s some others from my list: Kelly Jensen’s To See the Sun & Chasing Forever, Amy Aislin’s Christmas Lane, Lee Welch’s Salt Magic, Skin Magic.. (I could go on. There were rather a list, lol).

  26. One of my favorites this year was twisted and tied 🙂 another one that wasn’t on this list is that irresistible poison by Alessandra Hazard.

  27. Such a great list! As the genre grows the quality of stories evolve!
    I have to say that one of my most favorite books of 2018 was the audio version of Accidental Master written by MA Innes and narrated by Kenneth Obi. This truly had me laughing out loud.

  28. Boy Shattered, Snow Falling and Honeymoon for One are really good. I haven’t had the chance to read most of the others though…

  29. Voted. I really love Dream Spinner so it wouldn’t take long to spin. I am really enjoying the Dreamspinner Desires. I also really enjoy all the advent stories.
