    I just started reading again after a four year hiatus. I would like some recommendations for anything that I might have missed during that time frame. I just caught up on Lisa ‘s newer books, but now I’m not sure what author/book to go to. Any help would be great. Thanks in advance!

    I had not read any books in the romance category for over a year too, and started again with Joanna Bourne’s Rogue Spy and Beauty Like the Night, both of which are quite good. If you haven’t read Joanna Bourne before, maybe start with The Forbidden Rose as that is the first book chronologically, although the first published book in the Spymaster series was The Spymaster’s Lady. You do need a bit of suspension of disbelief in her books though.
