Two of my recent discoveries are Tessa Dare and Theresa Weir.   How about you?  What great authors have you recently discovered?

Agree with both of those.  "Innocent Traitor" by Weir is especially engrossing. 

I'd add:  Courtney Milan, Sara Lindsey, Kate Moore-Laurel McKee(but I think it's a pseudo of Amanda McCabe so I'm not sure she counts).  Evangeline Collins too. 

Those with only a couple of books out-Meredith Duran, Joanna Bourne, Delilah Marvelle, Judith James

I am reading my first Penelope Williamson, The Passions of Emma.   Great novel.  Much more than a romance book.

Julie James -- so happy to have found her.  Though I didn't like her first book, I was lucky to have picked that up last.  I found her newer stuff first and they are great.  I wonder how many other authors I am missing out on simply because I happened to pick up one of their "not so great" books first.

Wow, Pam, you go, girl.  I can't believe you took that one on first.  I had to wait until I was hooked on Williamson to tackle it.  It's fantastic - an A+ book - but if you read the reviews & comments first, it could curb your enthusiasm to try it just a little.

I think my most recent "new to me" was Carrie Lofty.  Didn't like her second book nearly as much as the first one though.

Rediscovered Patricia Rice with her new book.
