“The Prince” by Tiffany Reisz (erotic fiction, Mira, November 2012, $13.95, 416pp)
Series: Book 3 of the Original Sinners
Two worlds of wealth and passion call to Nora Sutherlin and, whichever one she chooses, it will be the hardest decision she will ever have to make. Unless someone makes it for her…
Vivian Arend’s “Rocky Mountain Angel” (Samhain)
I’ve started to read this one – admittedly I got caught up reading the Fever series. I was absolutely enjoying this story and must get back to it. I am a fan of Arend’s stories. I find them very readable and often thought-provoking.
Cara Elliott’s “Too Dangerous to Desire” (Forever)
I adore Cara Elliott’s books. She writes fabulous historical romances that keep me glued to my seat (or my ereader). I haven’t had a chance to read this one yet, but I’m a big fan of this series. I’m hoping to read this one this week as I am on vacation!
Jax Garren’s “How Beauty Met the Beast” (Carina)
I admit to being extremely curious about this one. It is the first book in a paranormal trilogy that I don’t think would normally be my thing. But I need to read this one.
“Archangel of Mercy” by Christina Ashcroft (review copy)
This book is out in early December so a review will be posted then. However, I’m not entirely sure what I think of this one. I liked the world and the characters, but had a real negative reaction to the ending of this one. I will be mulling this book for a bit.
“Their Reluctant Submissive” by Marla Monroe (ebook)
I enjoyed this book which is the first I’ve read by this author. The heroine Kelly is the reluctant submissive, who was hurt by a man masquerading as a dominant who slowly took over her entire life. Jackson and Marx aren’t looking for a full-time submissive, but Kelly is wary. I liked this aspect of the story.
“Wicked Nights with a Proper Lady” by Tiffany Clare (review copy)
“Wicked Nights with a Proper Lady” by Tiffany Clare (historical, St. Martins, November 2012, $7.99, 336pp)
Series: 1st book in Dangerous Rogues series
WHEN LOVE IS AT STAKE
Leo Harrow, Earl of Barrington, is a regular subject of the scandal rags. Once an unrepentant pleasure seeker, he knows that young ladies are warned to look the other way when he enters a room. But when he comes face to face with a woman from his past—the one that got away—he will do anything to keep the rumors about him at bay. Or risk losing her forever…
Today, we welcome author Jill Shalvis to talk a bit about her most recent release, “Rescue My Heart.” We are also giving away a copy of “Rescue My Heart” to one commenter.
Q: Can you tell our readers a bit about Rescue My Heart and its series, Animal Magnetism?
A: I’ve always thought cute animals and sexy heroes go together, so I started this series about a set of wildly alpha brothers running an animal center in Sunshine, Idaho at the base of the Bitteroot Mountains.
Samantha Kane’s “The Devil Thief” (Loveswept)
There has been a great deal of talk about this one. I do have an egalley that I plan to read. I love the premise of this one which involves a heroine who is a burglar.
Sophie Barnes’ “There’s Something About Lady Mary” (Avon Impulse)
I have yet to read a book by historical romance author Sophie Barnes, but so want to. I do have an egalley of this one too. I like the fact that the book description hints that the heroine isn’t the usual, proper,historical miss.
“Honor’s Splendour” by Julie Garwood (ebook, re-read)
I was feeling a bit out of sorts in terms of reading late last week. As a result, I decided that I needed a comfort read. This is one of my all-time favorite books. In this historical romance (Medieval), Madelyne saves Duncan after he is captured by her brother and left to be frozen to death. Rather than treat Duncan like the enemy, Madelyne warms his feet, sealing her fate. Duncan takes Madelyne, and the rest is history. This is a book that I recommend to people all of the time.
“Tell Me No Lies” by Delphine Dryden (ebook)
I will read anything that Dryden writes. She is one of my favorite erotic romance authors. And this one features a hero and heroine who are lifelong friends. Tess is in a bad spot in her life. She has given up her job, is moving home, but is having trouble coping with everything. Jack confronts Tess and makes her start dealing with things, especially the attraction that has always existed between them. This is a steamy, steamy BDSM erotic romance.
“Seduce Me Tonight” by Kristina Wright (anthology) (ebook)
I think this might have been free on Amazon (which is why I bought it). I often find it more difficult to get into erotic shorts because I have trouble connecting with the characters. However, this one surprised me. While not every story worked for me, a fair number of them did. I would have no problem looking at other titles by Kristina Wright.
“Enslaved” by Elisabeth Naughton (paranormal, Sourcebooks, November 2012, $7.99, 384pp)
Series: The Eternal Guardians book 5
GRYPHON—Honorable, loyal, dependable...tainted. He was the ultimate warrior before imprisonment in the Underworld changed him in ways he can't ignore.
She calls to him. Come to me. You can't resist. But Gryphon will not allow himself to be ruled by the insidious whispers in his head. And there's only one way to stop them: kill Atalanta, the goddess who enslaved him. But with so much darkness inside, he can't be sure what's real anymore. Even the Eternal Guardians, those who protect the human realms and the gods, want to exile him.
“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.
Earlier in the week, someone on Twitter asked for some romance recommendations that featured heroes who are in law enforcement. After compiling the list, I realized that I had too many suggestions to tweet them. So here are some of the books that I’ve read (and absolutely enjoyed) over the past couple of years that have heroes in some type of law enforcement profession. Enjoy!
