Take My Breath Away

What an awesome start to the Cabin Fever series! Ridgway’s latest is heartwarming, extremely romantic and one of those books that will make you feel tingly all over.

Deeper Than Need
by Shiloh Walker

           

This is a novel full of tension: There is lots of sexual tension, which makes the romance more real, and there is the tension of a slowly revealed evil, which lurks beneath, bubbling under the entire plotline. The characters lack some of the crystallized focus that is so lovely in many of Walker’s works, but this is book one in a series, so we can expect more details later.

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, JULY 29, 2014 | PERMALINK

A photo of J.R. WardYesterday Publishers Weekly announced J.R. Ward's new three-book deal with Penguin's NAL imprint for a contemporary romance series — the Bourbon Kings — about a series of wealthy Kentucky families who made it big in the bourbon industry. The first currently untitled book is set to release in late 2015. While J.R. Ward is renowned for her paranormal romances, writing contemporary romance is nothing new for her. She wrote contemporary romances as Jessica Bird as early as 2002, including a handful Harlequin Special Edition titles.

Chatter about Ward's new series began when the author casually announced it on her Facebook page early last week saying, "I'm writing book one of my new series, The Bourbon Kings, right now- and then starting Trez and iAm's book September 1! IMMORTAL, the last of the Fallen Angels series, comes out in October so get ready for Jim's final battles!"

Cover Breakdown: Broken Open by Lauren Dane

BY DJ DeSmyter, JULY 23, 2014 | PERMALINK

While Lauren Dane's The Best Kind of Trouble, the first in her new Hurley Boys series, doesn't hit shelves until next month, I'm already counting down the days until the sequel, Broken Open, releases. The moment I saw the cover, I fell in love. It's not often you see an interracial couple on a mainstream romance cover, so for that alone it's a winner. But the premise is equally as intriguing - especially the hero, musician and rancher Ezra - which makes this a book I have to read. Let's take a look!


Five years ago, Tuesday Eastwood’s life collapsed and left her devastated. After an empty, nomadic existence, she’s finally pieced her life back together in the small Oregon town of Hood River. Now Tuesday has everything sorted out. Just so long as men are kept for sex, and only sex ...

Then she met him.
