I love Shona Husk's Annwyn series. They do contain all the elements I love when it comes to reading romance; magic, Happily Ever After, and a sweetness to the relationship that makes the physical desire even sexier! You really do capture it all.
I am a huge fan of the Spirit Road Mysteries. They are by far one of my favorite series, and I've had the pleasure of reviewing two of them for Fresh Fiction. The realistic characters are truly what bring me back over and over. It will be a series I not only continue to follow but will go back and re-read over and over.
