Two of HelenKay Dimon’s recent releases, Too Far Gone (contemporary, Berkley, December, 2014, $4.27, 249pp) and Running Hot (romantic suspense, Avon, December 2014, $1.99e, 22pp) are fantastic romances that have something in common - very strong relationships between male characters of the series. Ones that are actually rather funny.
Too Far Gone is the final book in Dimon’s Hanover Brothers series - a series about brothers who have to deal with the fallout of their con man father’s long years of fraud. In the first three books, the three Hanover brothers inherit a home in Sweet Water, Oregon and attempt to make a life there. Unfortunately, the people of the town are not thrilled to have Charlie Hanover’s sons around. The appearance of Walker Reeves, an FBI agent, is an added insult especially when it is revealed that he is actually another of Charlie’s children.

Newly divorced after years of sleep-walking through occasional sex, she's hoping to find her way back to the fiery confidence of her youth, when she saw what, or who, she wanted and grabbed it with both hands. It's a Callie she barely remembers and that Gabe is convinced is buried somewhere deep inside her still.

There were so many new releases last week, but I don’t think I got to that many of them in advance. But here is my take on them.
Sophie Jordan’s historical romance, An Heiress for All Seasons, is a delightful holiday novella that will put readers in a festive mood. Violet Howard is an American heiress whose mother is determined that she marry into the British peerage. The mother accepts an invitation to spend the holidays at the home of Will, the Earl of Melton, in hopes of getting Will to propose marriage. Violet is not keen on the idea. She believes herself to be in love with a man back home that her parents have deemed inappropriate. Will isn’t ready for marriage either - or at least he isn’t until he finally meets Violet. In this one, Violet is the one that needs to be convinced, and Will does an excellent job. An Heiress for All Seasons is a quick and highly romantic read.

Need something to read this week? There are so many great or potentially great romances out this week. Read on for more . . .
Katie Porter’s Bind is one of my favorite books out this week. This one is an erotic romance that is the third book in Porter’s Command Force Alpha series (and I recommend all three books very highly. The first is Own and the second is Snap). It features Nicholas (aka Nicky) Stafford, the leader of Command Force Alpha. Nicky is a stern leader, father (his daughter Kat is the heroine of Own) and widower with a kinky past. Nicky hasn’t tied anyone up since his wife’s death, but his affinity with rope is still strong. This is apparent when Astrid Holm, a Command Force Alpha accountant, finds a lead in an open case which involves rope fetishists.
Sweet Adventure by Penny Watson (contemporary, self-published, October 2014, $0.99, 45,000 words)
Series: The Klaus Brothers, book 3
Andi De Luca’s reporting career is built on lies—about corrupt politicians, greedy Hollywood stars, and Bigfoot. Now she’s determined to uncover the truth about Klaus Enterprises, and she always gets her story. Even if it means revealing her own secret desires to Santa’s son.
After all the lies and deception are exposed, will Andi and Sven survive this North Pole adventure? Or will YETI MAKE THEM DEADY?
