I haven’t read a book that has touched my soul, like this one, in a very long time, but then again, Abby Jimenez continues to prove she can do no wrong. Set in the same world as Part of Your World, this is the story of two emergency room doctors who, after a bevy of wrong first impressions, become each other’s safe place at a time in their lives when they’re both feeling adrift and alone. Jimenez just knows how to create characters that make you feel like you’d step in front of a moving train for them, characters that embody a certain type of strong that is selfless and kind, characters that linger in our minds long after the book ends. Equal parts heart and heartbreak, yet every romantic’s dream come true, this is Abby Jimenez at her best—making us want to live in her stories forever.

Rosie Danan proves once again to have a real knack for crafting intriguing storylines with deeply complex characters that feel both wonderous and real, and in her latest novel, she pairs a tenacious expert in the occult with a wary archaeologist in need of professional redemption. Add a cursed Scottish castle to the mix, an ancient magic with its own cryptic agenda, and the result is downright spellbinding. I loved this book before I even read it, but I never expected it to become one of my favourite reads of the year.

Kristen Ashley returns with the fantastically atmospheric tale of American heiress Daphne Ryan who finds herself summoned to Duncroft House—her younger sister’s new boyfriend’s ancestral family home—to meet his parents and brother. However, as Daphne soon realises, Duncroft House appears to be haunted by all the women who died there under mysterious circumstances, and they all seem to be currently targeting Daphne. Enter Ian Alcott, the very alpha, very bossy heir to the earldom, who steps in to protect Daphne, while also doing his best to solve the mystery of Duncroft House. Ashley masterfully weaves in elements of the supernatural to draw a gripping tale of love, suspense, and things that go bump in the night. I read this book in a single sitting.

I have been devouring Cherise Sinclair romances for over a decade now, and the Mountain Masters series was one of my first forays into her writing, so returning to this world felt like coming home. Newly divorced Erin Lockwood has been left penniless by her criminal ex-husband who, after emptying all their bank accounts, fled the country to escape arrest. In a desperate attempt to restart her life away from the bad memories that continue to haunt her, she retreats to the small mountain town of Bear Flat and the house gifted to her by her late mother, only to realise that the legacy of her husband’s crimes still reverberates through the lives of everyone in town. The last thing Erin needs right now is to get involved with anyone, but when she meets wilderness guide Wyatt Masterson, she can’t help but feel noticed, valued, protected—all the things her ex-husband never made her feel. But as Erin and Wyatt begin to explore each other, in and out of the bedroom, Erin’s past continues to draw closer and closer, threatening to destroy the happiness she has finally found with Wyatt. With the perfect mix of suspense, romance and kink, Cherise Sinclair’s stories continue to be comfort reads for me.

SECOND CHANCES + FORCED PROXIMITY + SINGLE DAD

She had been his sole obsession. He would have done anything to have her, and he did. She had been a light in his darkness. She had made him want to be more, better, different. Nothing mattered but her.

Until she betrayed him, and in a moment of revenge, he slept with her stepsister. That drunken mistake cost him his soul.

Oakley Watson had learned at a young age to protect her heart, not to trust anyone with it. But when Wilder Jones walked into her life, she didn’t just give it to him; she left it at his feet. Their forever ended the day he told her that he’d gotten her stepsister pregnant.

Love greater than anything she’d ever imagined had burned so brightly she’d been blinded. That was nine years ago, and it was all in the past. The only thing left of the fire that had once been were the ashes left behind.

This is the tenth book in the Smoke series.

MARRIAGE OF CONVENIENCE + HISTORICAL ROMANCE

Meet Her Majesty’s Rebels: three brilliant women who run King & Co., London’s most exclusive investigative agency…

The wedding-night death of her much older husband left Tess Townsend the Dowager Duchess of Wansford—and still a virgin. Now she and her two best friends investigate London’s most scandalous crimes, and while Tess longs to experience physical pleasure for herself, she can’t risk losing her treasured independence…

Cynical shipping magnate Justin Thornton never expected to inherit a dukedom, but he’ll do his duty. When the ravishing woman he kissed at a party turns out to be the Dowager Duchess, Justin sees an obvious solution: a marriage of convenience that will suit them both.

But the passion that sparks between them is anything but convenient. As Tess works on a new case at the request of Queen Charlotte, her increasingly suspicious behavior makes Justin question her motives—and her past. The infuriating woman clearly can’t be trusted, but Justin doesn’t believe in love, so there’s absolutely no danger of him falling for his own wife…is there?

This is the first book in the all-new Her Majesty’s Rebels series of standalone novels with interconnected characters.

PARANORMAL ROMANCE/ URBAN FANTASY

“In many ways, I had no other choice but to fall for Eden. She isn’t just Legion’s weakness. She is mine. She is the embodiment of my black, bleeding heart, walking this Earth, beating for someone else.”

Shocker.

No need to play surprised. You should know you can’t kill the unkillable.

But as undead as I may be, there’s a part of me that didn’t survive past the gates of that cemetery in New Orleans. The part of me that hasn’t been whole since I kissed her goodbye, her memories a bittersweet stain on my lips.

I thought I could forget her. I thought I could walk away and play the selfless, valiant role for the first time in my God-damned existence. But no matter how much I try to drink or screw her away, I can’t let her go.

Eden.

I’ve been searching for a distraction. Something to help me forget her taste, her scent, her breathy moans that were a heated caress against my bitter cold soul.

And maybe I’ve finally found it.

Or maybe I’m just f*cked up enough to pretend that I could ever leave her alone.

This is a Se7en Sinners holiday novella. It was previously published in Such Violent Delights, a holiday anthology.

Series recommended reading order: Born Sinner | End of Eden | Wicked Ruin | Fallen Reign | Devil’s Darling (novella)

Everly Winters is perfectly happy to navigate life like a good neutral paint color: appreciated but unnoticed. That’s why she’s still a receptionist instead of exploring a career in art, why she lurks but never posts on the forums for her favorite makeover show, On the Plus Side, and why she’s crushing so hard on her forever-unattainable co-worker. When no one notices you, they can’t reject you or insist you’re too much.

This plan is working perfectly until someone secretly nominates Everly for the next season of On the Plus Side. Overwhelmed by the show’s extremely extroverted hosts and how much time she’ll have to spend on screen, she finds comfort in a surprising friendship with the grumpy but kind cameraman, Logan. Soon Everly realizes that he’s someone she doesn’t mind being noticed by. In fact, she might even like it.

But when their growing connection is caught on camera, it sends the show’s ratings into a frenzy. Learning to embrace all of herself on national TV is hard enough; can Everly risk heartbreak with the whole world watching?

This is a standalone novel.

He’s the melody in her mind…

Beautiful Brianna Steel has her life planned out. Graduate college early. Check. Work with her father in the Steel family orchard. Check. Marry Jesse Pike.

No check there. Jesse has never given her a look.

Finagling her way onto a rock and roll tour with Jesse and his band, Dragonlock, should help move her final goal along. At least Brianna hopes it will. She’s been in love with Jesse since she was fourteen years old, and though she’s had several relationships, no one compares to the darkly handsome rocker.

Jesse Pike and his band just got their big break. Opening for Emerald Phoenix on their Europe tour could lead to fame and fortune, and his family desperately needs the money after a fire destroyed their livelihood. He can’t let them down, and he’s determined not to let anything distract him—certainly not vivacious cowgirl Brianna Steel, even if she is the most gorgeous woman he’s ever laid eyes on.

In the end, though, it’s not just his attraction to Brianna that puts the tour in jeopardy.

This is the twenty-eight book in The Steel Brothers Saga and it is not a standalone novel.

Series reading order: Craving | Obsession | Possession | Melt | Burn | Surrender | Shattered | Twisted | Unraveled | Breathless | Ravenous | Insatiable | Fate | Legacy | Descent | Awakened | Cherished | Freed | Spark | Flame | Blaze | Smolder | Flare | Scorch | Chance | Fortune | Destiny | Melody | Harmony (Mar 2024) | Encore (Jun 2024)

ENEMIES TO LOVERS + FORCED PROXIMITY + HE FALLS FIRST

Noah

Two things in life have always come easy to me: winning medals in competitive swimming and hooking up with beautiful women. Riding high from an Olympic victory, I was heading back home for my cousin’s wedding. As soon as I touched down, I was on the lookout for a post ceremony hookup. I had to look no further than the bridal party or more specifically the brunette bombshell who was the maid of honor. To my surprise, she not only remembered me from when we were kids, but she wasn’t my biggest fan. Undaunted, I set out to show her just how hot angry sex could be. While I’d fully expected a night of passion, the worst possible thing happened the morning after…

I fucking fell for her.

But to my utter disbelief, she wanted nothing more to do with me. I am a guy who has never had to chase a chick, but I’m about to launch into a full-on pursuit to make her mine.

This is standalone novel in the second-generation Proposition/Runaway Train series, featuring Aidan and Emma’s son from The Proposition, and AJ and Mia’s daughter from Beat of the Heart.

My brother’s best friend owned my heart until the day he drenched it in kerosene and burned it down.

I’m only back in Redhaven for my sick mother and to talk some sense into my sister before she marries a toad.
Grant ran me off once and I’m not running back.
I can handle the drama, the messy secrets, and an unexpected stalker just fine.

…or maybe not so fine.
When Prince Anti-Charming charges in to protect me, it’s kinda hard to say no.
When I find out he’s a single dad with a heart bigger than a prune, it gets harder.
And when his lips storm mine with a growl that says “stay,” oh God.

Are we really doing this again?
Especially when an old tragedy resurfaces with hard truths, stinging tears, and one brutal question.
Will our sweetest obsession finally deliver us or destroy us forever?
