I've decided I want to be like Julie James when I grow up. She's already a bestselling author, so you probably already know of her. If you don't, please allow me to introduce you!
She's got a ton of books with great protagonists and super hot love scenes. Her leading ladies are self-assured, professional women always ready with a quip, and the men they fall for can keep up with them in every arena.
Best of all, every story is funny. She seems to delight in putting these attractive, successful people in every embarrassing and frustrating predicament in the book. (ha! you get it?)
I've included an amazon associates link to the first in her FBI/US Attorney Series, which is 6 books long and still going strong. You can easily jump into the middle of the series without a problem, but I always like reading from the beginning.
