I must admit, I’ve read just two on this list — WATER BOUND and UNCHAINED: THE DARK FORGOTTEN. I am familiar with a few of the other titles, though, but any of your favorites left off? Who do you think will win?

1. Diana McCabe - April 3, 2011

Seems kind of thin this year. The two books I read weren’t really what I consider big stories for this award. Then again — last year you had Kresley Cole, so kind of hard to top that. But anyone read any of the other finalists on this list?

I’ve read Melissa Mayhue and I adore her as well I’ve read Eve Silver and enjoy her too. I’ll also take a look at the other authors mentioned here I’m always excited to find another author to follow.
