“Stolen” by Shiloh Walker (romantic suspense, Ballantine, October 2012, $7.99, 384pp)
Shay Morgan has stayed hidden for a long time. Living a reclusive life in Earth’s End, Alaska, she’s as far away as she can get from the trauma of her childhood and the man who hurt her long ago. But terror takes over Shay’s life yet again when an unknown stalker steals away the fragile peace she’s built for herself—targeting not only her but the one man who’s ever managed to get past the walls she’s built around herself.
Elliot Winter has lived through being falsely accused before—it ruined his military career. Now it’s happening all over again. And this time, his accuser is a twisted impostor who’s targeting his ex-girlfriend, Shay. Despite a fierce mutual attraction, Shay and Elliot broke up because Shay couldn’t let her guard down, couldn’t let Elliot in. But now they both need to trust each other to confront a psycho who seems to know all their secrets.

Juliet Lamprey is having the time of her life running her successful bakery, TART, when Gideon Carter comes back into her life. Returning home to help his grandfather run the family on the farm, Gideon is back for good. When they meet again, the spark between them is immediate, and it isn't long before the former childhood friends play catch up in bed.
That's not good news for local lawyer Cal Whaley. Though the sexually open but strictly monogamous Cal has loved Jules for a long time, he's hardly ever taken it further than friendship. When he sees her start to fall for Gideon, he knows he has to make his move or risk losing her forever.
Jessica Andersen’s “Spellfire” (Signet)
I adore this paranormal series that features the Nightwalkers who are fighting to stop the Mayan end-date prophecy from happening. I have a review copy of this that I am desperately trying to find the time to read. This one is the final book in the series – and I love the fact that Andersen created this series with definitive end. We need more of this.
Beth Ciotta’s “Her Sky Cowboy” (Signet)
I have to admit that Steampunk books can make me twitchy, so I often avoid them. I’m not sure if it is the sky cowboy hero or the lure of sky pirates that appeals. However, I want to read this one. I do have a review copy waiting for waiting for me.
Olivia Cunning’s “Double Time” (Sourcebooks)
I have yet to read any of Olivia Cunning’s sinners books. However, review Missy Thompson loved this one – and I’ve heard lots of great buzz about it.
“Twelfth Night Secrets” by Jane Feather (review copy)
“Master Class” by Cassandra Carr (ebook, review copy)
Review to come closer to when this book releases.

“Undeniable” by Madeline Sheehan (contemporary, October 2012, self-published, $1.99, 219pp)
**NOTE: This is less of a review than Jennifer's reaction to this book. There are many, many spoilers here.***
***Warning*** (This book contains several aspects of the uglier side of life; it is not for everyone.)
The story of Deuce and Eva...
An undeniable connection that stands the test of time.
Love and pain and everything in between.
“Twelfth Night Secrets” by Jane Feather (historical, Pocket, October 2012, $6.99, 272pp)
While others dance and flirt, Lady Harriet Devere has a secret life, assisting her older brother Nick with his duties as a British spy. When Nick is killed, however, Harriet assumes that her work passing coded messages to the Ministry of War will cease. Instead, she is charged with a vitally important mission: spend Christmas determining if Julius Forsythe, Earl of Marbury, is a double agent for the French.
Harriet expects danger, just not to her heart. . . . As the hostess of a holiday house party, she is perfectly placed to closely observe her noble guest—his elegant clothes, his penetrating dark eyes, his virile athletic build. But when passion flames between them, Harriet realizes that only a holiday miracle will allow her to find true love—in the arms of this spy who has come for Christmas.
Juniper Bell’s “Unleashing the Receptionist” (Samhain)
I’ve read the first two books in this series by Juniper Bell and will absolutely be reading this one. I’m hoping that in this one we finally get more background on Ethan and Simon, who have both been rather reserved about themselves. These books have lots of inappropriate, but sexy office shenanigans going on.
Sara Bennett’s “Sin with a Scoundrel” (Avon)
In this historical romance, the heroine is looking for some instruction on overcoming her innocence and turns to a rake for help. I can’t resist this type of plot. I cannot wait to read this one.
Allison Brennan’s “Stalked” (Minotaur)
I adore good romantic suspense stories, and this one seems to fit the bill. I’ve only read one or two books by Brennan, but none of her Lucy Kincaid books.
“Under the Mistletoe” by Jill Shalvis (ebook, review copy, NetGalley)
Review to come. However, this Lucky Harbor, holiday novella is an absolutely delightful story.
“Letting Go 2: Stepping Stones” by Michele Zurlo (ebook)
In this story, a husband thinks his wife needs to let go and sink further into submission. As such, he books a vacation at a kinky island destination. Things don’t necessarily go as planned as Sabrina has difficulty coping. Overall, I liked the relationship between Sabrina and Jonas, but felt a bit lost at times. I wasn’t always sure what Jonas was trying to accomplish and whether it was what he wanted or whether it was what he thought Sabrina really needed (and wasn’t entirely convinced that Sabrina wanted to give up more control over her life).
“Hook Up” by Miranda Baker (ebook)
While getting ready for her best friend’s wedding, Crystal is reunited with Ryan, the man to whom she gave her virginity. The thing is, Crystal has changed significantly since their college encounter. Now, she dates women and is a sensual psychic (she is an empath who senses others’ emotions). However, the hot chemistry still exists between the two and can’t be denied. This story felt different to me. I enjoyed the paranormal aspect with Crystal’s psychic senses – and the romance. This is a very steamy book.
