Romance fans tend to be voracious readers, always on the lookout for a new author to follow (or an author who's new to them). With that in mind, I'd like to spotlight a few great romance writers you might not have picked up before. Let me introduce you to Leigh Greenwood, Dale Cramer, Jessica Stirling, Naomi Neale, M. L. Buchman, Lee Carroll, Z. A. Maxfield, and Ilona Andrews.
On the surface they don't seem to have a lot in common, aside from writing great romance. Some are award winners, while others have seen more modest success. They're all over the map, as far as subgenres go: western, inspirational, historical, chick lit, suspense, gothic, LGBT, and urban fantasy/ paranormal. Oh... there is one other detail they all have in common: behind every one of their keyboards sits a male author.
