It will come as no surprise to anyone that I am a HUGE fan of Kristen Ashley’s unique brand of storytelling, in particular of her MC Romances. But the problem with loving something so much and for so long is that one’s expectations only continue to grow, and disappointment is always a possibility. So I dove into the first book in her upcoming Wild West MC series with both anticipation and trepidation because what MC Romance on this planet could ever beat Motorcycle Man, or Own the Wind, or Walk Through Fire?! Well, I should have known better because this book BLEW MY EVER-LOVING MIND. Bursting with KA’s trademark energy and imagery, this story is a celebration of one woman’s indomitable spirit and will to survive against all odds, as well as of family, loyalty, friendship, and of love conquering all. Go in, go blind, and find yourself (like me) falling head over heels in love with KA’s writing all over again. A true gem!

The fourth standalone in Devney Perry’s Runaway series is the kind of heartwarming, emotionally-charged story we’ve come to expect from this author. The surprise pregnancy trope is my catnip, so this book had my undivided attention from the get-go, but it’s Perry’s crisp, evocative writing that steals the show as always. It’s the story of two people who, at first, don’t like one another very much, but a single night of stripped inhibitions leads to both their lives suddenly changing forever.

Jewel E. Ann’s novels are a special brand of magic and her latest offering is to die for. It’s the story of a young widow who, after twenty-two years of marriage and raising four kids, finds herself desperately looking for something real in her life again. Enter a much younger, very handsome new business owner in town who not only threatens the livelihood of the heroine’s family store, but also pursues her relentlessly from the moment they meet. And while their attraction is undeniable, their views on marriage and life in general are very different. A beautifully written, impossible-to-put-down tale of life, love, relationships, and of belonging to no-one but yourself—I can’t recommend this book highly enough.

No one writes erotica like Tiffany Reisz and her newest offering is an absolute treat. We return to the sensually decadent world of the Godwicks with a superbly written tale of two people who, in order to settle a family debt, enter an arrangement that is meant to remain purely sexual in nature. Hate turns to lust and lust to love, and they both end up discovering sides of themselves they never knew were there. But one of them is keeping dark secrets from the other. With the perfect balance of titillating sex scenes, engaging dialogue, and heart-warming pathos, books like these are the reason I adore reading Romance.

Samantha Young continues her True Immortality series with another action-packed, fantastical adventure—stretching from Europe to Japan—as two more ‘true mates’ bound by magic, destiny and love find one another, joining forces against a new, powerful foe. Amidst heart-racing chase and battle scenes, plenty of dramatic tension, and even a few jaw-dropping twists, the author delivers the sweetest, slowest burn ever between two leads whose attraction is as potent as it is combustible. Young’s crisp, vivid prose captures every subtle nuance of emotion between her characters, making this thoroughly absorbing story an absolute must-read.

A consistent powerhouse in the small-town romance subgenre, Devney Perry delivers another riveting tale that is full of tenderness and heart as she takes us back to Clifton Forge, Montana with the story of a young woman desperate to make sense of her life after escaping a perilous situation following a lifetime of abuse. She finds safety in the home and arms of a man who is willing to risk everything for her, helping her see that true strength and bravery come from the heart. It’s another perfect addition to a well-layered, emotionally charged series that continues to strike the perfect balance of emotion, setting, and plot.

NEW RELEASES

The first time I met Hudson Rothschild was at a wedding. I’d received an unexpected invitation to one of the swankiest venues in the city.

Hudson was a groomsman and quite possibly the most gorgeous man I’d ever laid eyes on. He asked me to dance, and our chemistry was off the charts.

I knew it wasn’t a good idea to get involved with him, considering the wedding I was at. But our connection was intense, and I was having a great time.

Though the fun came to a screeching halt when Hudson figured out I wasn’t who I’d said I was. You see, that unexpected invitation I received? Well, it hadn’t actually been addressed to me—it was sent to my ex-roommate who’d bounced a check for two months’ rent and moved out in the middle of the night. I figured she owed me an expensive night out, but I guess, technically, I was crashing the wedding.

Once caught, I couldn’t get out of there fast enough. As I bolted for the door, I might’ve plucked a few bottles of expensive champagne off the tables I passed, all while the gorgeous, angry groomsman was hot on my tail.

Outside, I jumped into a taxi. My heart ricocheted against my ribs as we drove down the block—but at least I’d escaped unscathed.

Or so I thought.

Until I realized I’d left my cell phone behind at the table.

Take one guess who found it?

This is the crazy story of how Hudson Rothschild and I met. But trust me, it’s only the tip of the iceberg.

This is a standalone novel.

ENEMIES TO LOVERS

A workaholic marketing manager is forced to go on a cruise with her arch-nemesis when they’re up for the same promotion…

Between taking night classes for her MBA and her demanding day job at a cruise line, marketing manager Henley Evans barely has time for herself, let alone family, friends, or dating. But when she’s shortlisted for the promotion of her dreams, all her sacrifices finally seem worth it.

The only problem? Graeme Crawford-Collins, the remote social media manager and the bane of her existence, is also up for the position. Although they’ve never met in person, their epic email battles are the stuff of office legend.

Their boss tasks each of them with drafting a proposal on how to boost bookings in the Galápagos—best proposal wins the promotion. There’s just one catch: they have to go on a company cruise to the Galápagos Islands…together. But when the two meet on the ship, Henley is shocked to discover that the real Graeme is nothing like she imagined. As they explore the Islands together, she soon finds the line between loathing and liking thinner than a postcard.

With her career dreams in her sights and a growing attraction to the competition, Henley begins questioning her life choices. Because what’s the point of working all the time if you never actually live?

This is a standalone novel.

BROTHER’S BEST FRIEND

Growing up, I had one rule: stay away from my brother’s best friend.

It was easy to follow. I spent my years avoiding the boys on the baseball team, studying hard, and saving every dime I could. When I was accepted to transfer into UC Berkeley, I needed a place to live, and my brother had a free room off-campus.

Win-win, right? Except that best friend I was determined to stay away from is now my new roommate.

My very naughty, very rebellious roommate, Wesley Knight.

The boy who was once the bane of my existence with his constant teasing is now a drop-dead gorgeous athlete. He’s the life of the party, but I can’t have fun. According to Wes, no guys are allowed to talk to me.

Well, two can play at this game. If I can’t date, then neither can he.

It starts off as innocent fun. Some half-naked yoga or a little flirting until an interrupted moment of self-gratification turns things dangerous … for my body and my heart.

Living with my brother and his best friend has me breaking all the rules. I just have to decide if the consequences are worth the reward…

This is the third standalone novel in the Falling for the Stars series, a zodiac-themed Romance series where each hero carries the character attributes of their star sign.

ROMANTIC COMEDY

A grouchy mountaineer, a Hollywood starlet
And miles of untamed wilderness…
What could possibly go wrong?

Former Hollywood darling River Lane’s acting career is tanking fast. Determined to start fresh behind the camera, she agrees to film a documentary about the picturesque small town of Moose Springs, Alaska. The assignment should have been easy, but the quirky locals want nothing to do with River. Well, too bad: River’s going to make this film and prove herself, no matter what it takes.

Or what (literal) mountain she has to climb.

Easton Lockett may be a gentle giant, but he knows a thing or two about survival. If he can keep everyone in line, he should be able to get River and her crew up and down Mount Veil in one piece. Turns out that’s a big if. The wildlife’s wilder than usual, the camera crew’s determined to wander off a cliff, and the gorgeous actress is fearless. Falling for River only makes Easton’s job tougher, but there’s only so long he can hold out against her brilliant smile. When bad weather strikes, putting everyone at risk, it’ll take all of Easton’s skill to get them back home safely…and convince River she should stay in his arms for good.

This is the third standalone novel in the Moose Springs, Alaska series.
