Thursday Thirteen - Jet Mykles

In celebration of an interview and contest on my group writer's blog (here: Nightlight), I decided to list thirteen reasons to read Jet Mykles's books.

1. Hot, romantic m/m - what can I say?  I'm hooked

2. "Heaven Sent" - hot rockers with a classic Yaoi feel to their tales

3. Darl Elves - gotta love fantasy

4. "Reverb" - more rock 'n roll with a darker flavor

5. The "Leashed" series - shapeshifters!

6. Threesomes - she makes them seem workable

7. Realistic characters - including side characters

8. World building - she really draws me in

9. Johnnie Heaven - Heaven Sent's sexy front man

10. Lucas Sloane - Heaven Sent bass player

11. Darien - Heaven Sent drummer

12. Brent Rose - Heaven Sent lead guitarist

13. Heller Witting - Heaven Sent keyboard player

Can you tell I'm a fan of the "Heaven Sent" series?
