Her name is Catherine Asaro, and she’s written multiple sci-fi and fantasy books. I have just finished reading her Lost Continent series, and I have to say, I’m sorry to see them go. She created a fabulous, wonderful story world for her characters to play around in. Her books kept me up all night because I had to know what happened next. The romance portions of the stories were clean and some of the best I’ve read in a while.
If I had my way, I’d do nothing but read them all day. Alas, someone has to clean the house. Unfortunately.
