Hi,
I, over the last yr or so have become rather fond of books that incorporate sex scenes into the story line. I have really come to love the Paranormal Romance genre.

Is there any books you would suggest for me to read?

I've been reading things like Sherrilyn Kenyon and Lynsay Sands.

Okay.

So, you might like Laurell K. Hamilton (I confess, I do very little leisure reading and don't like most fantasy, but I have enjoyed her stuff a lot), Gena Showalter, Marion Zimmer Bradley, Robin McKinley, Stephanie Meyer and probably Anne Rice.

I highly recommend Jean Johnson for the Paranormal Romance genre. The first book of the series she's writing is called The Sword, and I really enjoyed it.

I'd add Kim Harrison, Charlaine Harris and Rachel Caine to the list.

(And honestly, I'd take Stephenie Meyer of that list. Her Twilight series is pretty popular, but IMO, the relationship between Edward and Isabella is borderline-abusive at best, and Isabella is horribly one-dimensional and cliched as far as female protagonists go. Too, if you're looking for sex scenes, you're not gonna find those, as Edward needs to suppress his urges, lest he loose control and crush Bella with his preternatural strength.)

(I've not read the Twilight series, but I read an article about them in the Washington Post. The article talked about how the series portrays gender stereotypes and unhealthy relationship behaviors, like the girls always baking, Bella always falling victim and needing rescuing, while the men are always the ones who do the rescuing and are quite dominating. I don't agree with all of the conclusions the article makes, but it was interesting to read.)
