It is such fun to find new authors - at least new authors to me!  I have found 2 the past couple of months!

Mariah Stewart (usually writes mysteries) - The Chesapeake Diaries series

and

Emily March - The Eternity Springs series

What books I've read so far in these series I've enjoyed tremendously. It's always fun to discover NTM authors.

So far this year I've read books by 14 authors I'd never read before. I have 5 library ebooks on my Nook and three of them are NTM authors - great fun.

Have you recently read any other NTY authors? I love hearing about members' new-author discoveries.

I love Mariah Stewart, although her last few were no-go's for me.  Dig deeper in her backlist and you'll find a treasure of contemporaries, many of which are in my keeper shelf!

It's hit or miss with ones I've tried in the last year.  And even some I've enjoyed I've found that subsequent books aren't that good.  Alan Nayes, Suzie Quint, Ellen Connor are all ones I'd recommend.

Toni Blake! She is my recent NTM author who I highly recommed, especially her Destiny, Ohio series if you like the Chesapeake Diaries. I also discovered Victoria Dahl this year, and I really enjoyed her books as well.

I have recently read the Toni Blake series and find them to sexually explicit!  Like books a little tamer!  Any suggestions for new series?

Have you tried the Virgin River series by Robyn Carr? They may be more what you are looking for, and they are really good. She also has a shorter 3-book series, Grace Valley, that I enjoyed as well. Neither of these series are at all as explicit as Toni Blake.

I love the Virgin River series.  Just enough hot, but not embarrassingly explicit.  The Men are men and the Women are smart and strong.  Great series.

Some NTM authors that I have discovered this year: Kristan Callihan (Paranormal romance/urban fantasy-ish?), RL Mathewson (romantic comedy), Elaine Levine (romantic suspense), Leslie Tentler (romantic suspense), Molly Harper (vampire - urban fantasy romance), JR Ward (vampire - urban fantasy romance...very spicy), Amanda Stevens (paranormal w/a romantic element), Charlotte Featherstone (historical romance) to name a few.

Thanks Nancy for the scoop on Toni Blake! I was looking for a hot, steamy author that can still tell a good story and I have some by Toni Blake. I'm going to have to move those up on my TBR pile! LOL!

If Blake is too steamy for you, definitely don't try Dahl, she's pretty steamy as well. Marilyn, *you* should try Dahl. :-)
