    It’s so awesome that we can vote for V and Butch! Too bad it’s only in the bromance section and not “best chemistry” because they outshine all!!!

    I can’t believe you didn’t have Kate Daniels & Curran up as a couple.

    • December 29, 2011 at 6:13 pm

      We haven’t reviewed a book with Kate and Curran yet, only a novella. So, that’s why they weren’t included. But , I plan on taking care of that soon. So, I’m sure they’ll be in next years polls. Sorry to disappoint.

    Lots of great authors. I was stuck between choosing JR Ward and Laura Kaye. At least we were able to choose more than 1. That way I didn’t have to choose between the two.

      I always have trouble deciding on ONE favorite too. I think it’s a better measure of people’s opinions if they can choose more than one. And it lets us include more contenders, which is always great for the authors! =)

      I’m glad you guys are having fun with it!

      OMG! What a wonderful compliment! Especially as J.R. is my favorite author! Right here, this comment makes me feel like I won! THANK YOU!
