Six Book Series you can’t wait to get into
or Series you’re dying to read
Six For Sunday is a meme hosted each week by A Little But A Lot. May’s theme is series, with the prompt this week being a series you are looking forward to reading or want to get into.
There are so many I could choose for this. I have The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King, by J.R.R. Tokien sat unread on my bookshelves, along with Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay Trilogy. However as a HUGE advocate of indie authors, I’m going to feature some of the back lists that I have on my radar but haven’t yet succeeded in reading.
The shameful truth about my list is that I actually own many of the books mentioned, and have done for some considerable time. On a positive note I HAVE started making headway through clearing books from my “bought-it-so-read-it” list. So at least things are now moving in the right direction!
Due to their obsession with censorship, Amazon banned the individual books of Marissa Honeycut’s Life of Anna series it does, however, still sell the ‘box set’ book. They also refuse to sell the first book of Lily White’s Masters series, that book is available on Smashwords and the author’s website.

Supernatural Bounty Hunter isn’t the sort of thing you see on LinkedIn. But with a rare type of magic like mine, I don’t have many options.

Knowing I’m poor and desperate, he has offered me a job. I’ll have to work by his side to help solve a top secret case.
Everyone knows not to trust vampires. Especially a hot elder vampire. But without any other jobs coming up, I’m stuck. As I uncover a web of lies and treachery, revealing an enemy I didn’t know existed, the truth of my identity is threatened. I might make it out alive, only to end up in a gilded cage.
The Warrior Chronicles by KF Breene
Genre – Fantasy Romance
It is said that when war threatens the world, one individual will be selected by prophecy to lead the Shadow Warriors out of the Land of Mist and reclaim the freedom which has been stolen.
Shanti has grown up under the constant threat of war. Since she helped her people defeat a raiding party by using a special power, she’s been a hunted woman. Carrying rare abilities and an uncanny fighting aptitude, Shanti is the only hope of salvation for her people. The problem is, she doesn’t believe in her own divinity, and when she flounders, she nearly fails in the duty hanging so heavy on her shoulders.
It seems like any other day when Sanders and his band of misfit boys find a foreign woman clinging to life in the wastelands. Oblivious to the weapon they now have in their possession, they are content to harbor the mysterious woman until she is well enough to continue her journey.
But when the war spreads its arms and lands on her borrowed doorstep, Shanti has no choice but to reveal her secrets, plunging her saviors into danger. If they band with her, they will face certain death. But to trade her to Xandre, the warlord desperate to add her to his war machine, would be to give up their entire way of life.
War is coming. The only choice becomes: Which side do you choose?
The Life of Anna by Marissa Honeycut
Genre – Dark Romance/ Erotic Horror
A dark, twisted, depraved story of hope and love.
Anna’s entire life was planned out before she was born. Her entire purpose is to serve those in control and be the perfect tool to control everyone around them. One man will seek to take her unique gifts into himself and become both the source of power and the hand that wields it.
But Anna has a vision of a man. A man whom her Master is determined to discover and destroy. A man who will change Anna’s life forever.
The Life of Anna follows the naive and innocent Anna as she enters a dark world of greed, politics, and an evil puppet master who pulls the strings to her world. And beyond.
Readers be warned, for this journey is not for the faint of heart. You are about to venture into a world of dark plots, sinister villains, and deeply erotic taboo encounters.
Are you brave enough to enter the Life of Anna?
Masters Series by Lily White
Genre – Dark Romance/ Dark Erotica
I am a Master.
You must know this fact to understand my story.
I capture women.
I break them down.
And I rebuild them.
If they are lucky, they are sold into the professional hands of another Master. If they are less fortunate, they are buried beneath the ground, never to be thought of again.
I lust for the control, I demand absolute submission and my body yearns to warp the minds of those I train.
Power is the only thing I’ll ever need and I am addicted to the feeling of ultimate control.
I am wealthy, good-looking, educated and charming.
And I am – in no way – a good man.
I do not want love.
I do not want kindness.
She thought she could change me by giving me the two things I knew I never wanted.
She was wrong.
