Hi, Nancy:

Depending on what type of genre you like within the Ellora Cave brand I would recommend:

  • Laurann Dohner's "New Species" series (Paranormal)
  • Samantha Kane's "Brother in Arms" series (Historical menage)
  • Tielle St. Clare "Wolf's Heritage" series (Paranormal)
  • Lisa Marie Rice's early books (Midnight series, Port of Paradise, A Fine Specimen) (Contemporary)
  • Jaid Black's Trek Mi 'Qan series (Alien Futuristic)

More than one author/book but these are keepers for me. Hope there are some recommendations here that you haven't tried yet.

ETA: Another one that I just thought of and it was a surprise since I've never read this author before - "Dead Again" by Tracy Cooper-Posey (Romantic Suspense) - VERY, VERY good. It used to be available on Ellora's Cave - a part of the "Blush" imprint but I don't see it there now. You can get it on Amazon - free ebook if you're a PRIME member.

Callista's Men by Jory Strong is on my keeper shelf

Love the whole Brothers In Arms series by Samantha Kane

Lora Leigh's Bound Hearts series started at EC and I think those are the best of that series.  The last 4 or 5 have not been as good.

I agree, there are a lot of bad ones though.

I agree with  Calista's men - I like Jory Strong's stuff and Lisa Marie Rice's early stuff (not wild about her later stuff) been others here and there that I've liked

Cara McKenna, Charlotte Stein and Delphine Dryden are all good. I agree though, lots of crap. I don't always even bother to get their freebies anymore.

I think most of the better authors jumped ship when erotica became mainstream. I like Joey W. Hill's earlier books and second the Lisa Marie Rice recommendations.

I don't think it is a question of writing, I think it is an issue of editing. Some writers really need a good editor. And I feel that EC does not provide one, you have to show up with one. Or be able to do it yourself.

Editing is such an important skill in publishing. And we are seeing much less of it.
