Have you read the Outlander
series by Diana Gabaldon? They are a historical romance series. Good, good books IMPO.
The Cat Who series is also a good set of mysteries.
Jean M. Auel's Clan of the Cave Bear
series is also really good, well it is until like the last two books and those flopped IMPO.
Rita Mae Brown has some really good murder mysteries.
Terry Goodkind and his Wizard's First Rule
series is also good. (if you have a nook I could "lend" you some of these ones)
Kristen Britain also has a good series and she is a fairly "new" writer.
Yes I am a book nut and no I don't want to think about how big my home library is or the fact I have so many digital books either
