    Romance Roundup: Prodigal Sons, Tattoo Artists, and Shy Ladies 

    This week’s Romance Roundup includes a man trying to rescue his mother, a marketing consultant with an extremely hot client, and a woman who won’t settle for anything less than true love.

    The Undercover Billionaire, by Jackie Ashenden
    Navy SEAL Wolf Tate is on a mission to rescue his mother. (Ladies, all together now: AWWW!!) The stakes are extremely high, so he needs to really step up his game. He decides that kidnapping his enemy’s daughter is the way to go. The daughter, Olivia de Santis, also happens to be Wolf’s good friend and the woman he’s had the hots for since forever. He kidnaps her, and what ensues is a whole lot of conflicting emotions on both of their ends. (Wolf, if you want to let her know how you feel, you could have taken a more straightforward approach.) Olivia can’t deny that she’s thrilled to get some alone time with him, and Wolf realizes that he feels many, many feelings in his large, perfectly-shaped…ahem, heart. Here’s hoping he manages to check off every item on his to-do list AND get the girl! This is the third book in Ashenden’s Tate Brothers series. (Available in paperback and NOOK.)

    The Secrets She Kept, by Brenda Novak
    Fairham Island’s matriarch has been found dead, and her estranged son, Keith, refuses to believe she committed suicide. He goes back home to look further into her death and try to put the family empire back together. (He was kinda close to his grandfather, hence the nod to family duties.) Keith also gets back in touch with Nancy Dellinger. He might have broken her heart before he fled Fairham Island. (To be fair, his late mom was crazy controlling, so he needed to get out of Dodge ASAP.) Keith soon realizes that his feelings for Nancy are still very much intact. He’s got a lot to do if he’s going to solve the mystery of his mother’s death and win back the woman of his heart. (Keith, we’ll help you by setting up several date nights! Just show up on time with an armful of roses!) This is the second book in Novak’s Fairham Island series. (Available in paperback.)

    Hero’s Return, by B.J. Daniels
    Tucker Cahill has had to keep a Very Bad Secret for 19 years, and it’s really taken an emotional toll on him. (Come here, Tucker! We promise to make it all better!) He’s forced to face it all, though, when a woman’s remains are found near his family’s ranch. (Stay strong, Tucker!) There’s also the matter of Kate Rothschild. She’s just come to town for some good, old-fashioned vengeance. This vengeance plan somehow involves Tucker. (Oh, that all plans—world domination, corrupt government overthrow, grocery shopping—involved meeting Tucker!) Trouble is, Kate did not expect Tucker to be so darn cute, and she hasn’t even seen his abs yet! Can they work together to accomplish their respective goals? And then get nekkid? This is the third book in Daniels’ Montana Cahills series. (Available in hardcover, paperback, and NOOK.)

    Seduced in San Diego, by Reese Ryan
    Marketing consultant Sasha Charles has been hired to improve the public image of artist Jordan Jace. (Emphasis on “public,” because looks-wise he is the manliest of men from head to toe!) She’s reluctant to get involved with him, though, because she’s a professional lady with a career to think of. (Trust us, Sasha. This risk is totally worth it!) Jordan wouldn’t mind getting to know Sasha better, and he soon starts to sweep her off of her feet in all kinds of ways. This includes fancy dinners followed by long, romantic interludes between the sheets. (All of this is really good for our gal, because she’s quite serious and hasn’t had a whole lot of fun in her life.) Then Jordan and Sasha soon start to realize that they actually really like each other and want to make babies together. (Jordan. Sasha. We are ALL in favor of this!) This book is the latest in the multi-authored Millionaire Moguls series. (Available in paperback and NOOK.)

    Whiskey Sharp, by Lauren Dane
    Vicktor Orlov likes to hide a tough, protective attitude beneath a more laid-back exterior. (By all means, Vicktor. Lay back. Lay way, way back and let us take over!) He steps up his game when he meets tattoo artist Rachel Dolan. Our gal has worked hard to overcome a violence-filled past. (Rachel, we all want to treat you to a yoga class and brunch!) She’s not sure she wants to give her heart to any man, even if he does have a rock-solid body that would protect her at any cost. She somehow decides that she Just Wants To Be Friends with Vicktor. (Rachel, no offense whatsoever, but that idea is doo-doo.) Will Vicktor manage to convince her that his love is here to stay? And will Rachel give in to her blossoming feelings and let Vicktor take her to new heights? This is the second book in Dane’s Whiskey Sharp series. (Available in paperback and NOOK.)

    Marry in Scandal, by Anne Gracie
    Lady Lily Rutherford wants to be courted properly. She’s a bit shy, so she’s waiting for the right man to come along and woo her in the way she wants and deserves. (Good for you, Lily! Don’t settle for anything less!) Then Something Bad happens, and she has to marry Edward Galbraith ASAP—or face some major scandal. She’s got a good attitude, though, and becomes determined to make her marriage a good one. As for Edward, he knew he needed to get married to a respectable lady anyway, so this actually works out for him. He doesn’t think he’ll ever get too close to her, though, because he’s still traumatized by his past. Here’s hoping Edward soon realizes that he’s got a great, loving woman he can confide in, and that he works very, very hard to give her the happy life she deserves! This is the second book in Gracie’s Marriage of Convenience series. (Available in paperback, audiobook, and NOOK on April 3.)

    Romance Roundup: Lady Elves, Guarded Workaholics, and Lusty Widows 

    This week’s Romance Roundup includes two childhood enemies with a corporation to run, two childhood friends with issues to face, and an elf who embarks on a forbidden romance with a dragon man.

    The Darkest Promise, by Gena Showalter
    Cameo is possessed by the demon of Misery, which means that if she experiences anything remotely close to the emotion of joy she will lose her memory. (And we thought the Monday blues were rough!) Out of options to reclaim her life, she sneaks into a mythical land ruled by Lazarus the Cruel and Unusual, who also possesses The Body Both My Grandmother and Maiden Aunt Would Admire. He is on a mission to destroy his enemies (Oh, Lazarus, aren’t we all!) but he is quite intrigued by Cameo. He wants to turn her frown upside down, and also perform more literal, acrobatic tasks that would take Cameo beyond joy. (Cameo, may we please test the waters for you first?) Will they figure out a situation in which she can finally feel true happiness and NOT lose her memories of him? This is the latest book in Showalters’ Lords of the Underworld series. (Available in paperback on March 27.)

    The River House, by Carla Neggers
    Felicity MacGregor has decided to return to her hometown of Knights Bridge and open up a party-planning business. (Felicity, would you please put some zing into all of our office parties? Thanks!) Also back in town is her childhood friend, Gabriel Flanagan. They’re both involved in an entrepreneurial boot camp, but if anyone needs some motivation it’s these two would-be lovebirds. (Gabriel, we’d all love to, ahem, crowdsource your big data and start up something special with you!) Felicity and Gabriel will need to get over some pretty deep-seated issues if they’re going to embark on a new chapter together. (Ideally, this chapter will involve lots of babies and a custom-built house with hardwood floors and a spectacular view of the local river.) Can they let bygones be bygones and just get nekkid? This is the eighth book in Neggers’ Swift River Valley series. (Available in hardcover, paperback, audiobook, and NOOK on March 27.)

    Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon, by Kerrelyn Sparks
    Romance readers who read The Lord of the Rings and thought “This needs more sexy” will love this yarn! Gwennore is an elf with special healing powers. She doesn’t trust dragons, but then she finds herself in a dragon realm. This realm is led by General Silas Dravenko. His job is to serve the realm’s royal family, which is now a bit hard to do with a cutie like Gwennore roaming around and distracting him and making him feel all of the feelings. They are supposed to be enemies, but let’s be real for a second: Gwennore is an awesome lady who makes guys want to learn more about her. As for Silas, well, he’s more than just your typical dragon guy with a handsome face and a derrière carved by angels. Here’s hoping they find some middle earth and realize that they are perfect for each other! This is the third book in Sparks’ Embraced series. (Available in paperback on March 27.)

    Claimed, by Alexa Riley
    Our gal Jay Rose is too busy rocking it at work to go out on dates. She’s quite the workaholic, and her work involves dealing with some very powerful jerks. (Keep calm and yoga on, Jay!) Then she meets security expert Jordan Chen. He works for the powerful Osbourne Corporation, and let’s just say this particular business venture has attracted some mighty bad enemies. When said mighty bad enemies target our gal, Jordan realizes that he is not going to let her face it all alone. (Good for you, Jordan, and for guys like you who are willing to lend a helping hand!) He will need to bring his A-game if he’s going to keep Jay safe, so it’s a good thing he’s logged many, many hours at the gym. This is the third book in Riley’s For Her series. (Available in paperback and NOOK on March 27.)

    A Billionaire Affair, by Niobia Bryant
    Alessandra Dalmount has had her professional life carved out for her. She was raised to take over her share of the Ansah Dalmount Group. Now it’s time to step up to the plate. Trouble is, she has to work with her childhood acquaintance, Alek Ansah. They didn’t exactly get along when they were young, and he’s morphed into quite the playboy since then, so Alessandra is feeling very “Ugh!” Then she and Alek get to know each other as adults, and pretty soon all Alessandra wants to do with him is have deep, meaningful conversations that involve a sandy beach, a towel, and their bodies covered in nothing but sun or moonlight. Will Alessandra realize that Alek has come a long way? And will Alek realize that he wants nothing more than to please her every day and night for the rest of their lives together? This is the first book in Bryant’s Passion Grove series. (Available in paperback and NOOK.)

    To Woo a Wicked Widow, by Jenna Jaxon
    Lady Charlotte Cavendish was stuck in a horrendous, loveless marriage, but then her awful husband finally croaked and now she’s all like “Freedom!” She’s determined to “have some fun,” and by “have some fun” we mean “get laid.” Oh, and she absolutely refuses to ever get married again. (Totally understandable, Charlotte!) She soon meets Nash, the twelfth Earl of Wrotham. She’s eager to jump into the sack with him (as are we!), but he’s actually more interested in the possibility of marrying her and, ya know, keeping it permanent. This is not an appealing offer for our libidinous lady, but if anyone can convince her that marriage is a charm the second time around, it’s Nash! (He won’t disappoint you, Charlotte!) This is the first book in Jaxon’s Widow’s Club series. (Available in paperback and NOOK on March 27.)

    Romance Roundup: Immortal Women, Private Investigators, and Green-Eyed Sailors 

    This week’s Romance Roundup includes a private investigator being framed for murder, a lawyer who needs to investigate her estranged husband’s family, and an immortal woman who has finally met her life partner.

    Twice Bitten, by Lynsay Sands
    Immortal lady Elspeth Argeneau is ready to feel some freedom. At the age of 140, she’s finally moved away from her over-controlling mother. (Clearly, nagging mothers are the same across species.) She’s ready to get some action in the sack, and so this is the perfect time for her landlady’s grandson, Wyatt, to reappear in her life. Wyatt still remembers Elspeth from when they first met four years ago, and he’s eager to show her what she could be getting more of. This won’t be too hard, as Elspeth soon realizes she’d like to take several bites of him. (Go for it, sister!) When some shady characters try to finish Elspeth off, the former Special Forces soldier kicks his skills up a notch to keep her safe. Will Elspeth realize that Wyatt is the man she’s meant to be with forever? This is the 27th book in Sands’ Argeneau Vampire series. (Available in hardcover, paperback, audiobook, and NOOK on March 27.)

    Cross Breed, by Lora Leigh
    Cassandra Sinclair may be a member of the Breeds—humans who carry animal-like capabilities both in and out of the bedroom—but she’s also her own interesting mix. She’s wolf, coyote, AND human, and let’s just say that her Breed neighbors are a tad overprotective of her. She manages to escape them to pursue a personal mission, and ends up having a rollicking good time with a guy who could very well be meant to be her mate for life. (Oh, Cassandra, please tell us more!) She’s not too thrilled with him, though. (Let’s just say she’s got some family issues to sort out and knows that she shouldn’t be dilly-dallying with the wrong guy.) But then some major tensions between Breeds and humans start to arise, and Cassandra and her new friend (her new, HOT friend) will need to stick together if they are going to survive. This is the 32nd book in Leigh’s Breeds series. (Available in hardcover and NOOK on September 25.)

    No Safe Secret, by Fern Michaels
    Molly has a picture-perfect life, complete with a house that HGTV executives would want to feature on every single show. Unfortunately, though, her life is not as great as it seems. To start with, she’s got a demanding husband WHO BETTER BACK OFF of our gal! Also, she’s got a pretty dark past that’s coming back to haunt her more than 20 years after she escaped it. (Horrible things happened to her on prom night, for one.) Molly will need to think fast on her feet if she’s going to get the better of those who would see her harmed. Here’s hoping she manages to put a stop to their shenanigans ASAP, and that she finally gets the peaceful life she deserves. Hang in there, Molly! We’re all cheering you on! (Available in paperback on March 27.)

    Deadly Secret, by Tara Thomas
    Our gal, Bea, is a lawyer who wants to make it to Congress. This is all fine and dandy, but now she’s been called upon to investigate the Benedict family and their massive business empire. Trouble is, she’s kind of secretly married to none other than Knox Benedict. True, they are estranged, and he’s actually one of the better members of his family, but this could still create a little conflict of interest. (Knox, you can show us all your conflict of interest any day of the week, if you know what we mean!) Knox would much rather woo his woman back than get involved in muddy family waters, but this could actually be really good for their relationship. Bea and Knox, knock this family drama out of the park once and for all, and embrace a future that involves being in each other’s lives—and Bea as a Congresswoman! This is the second book in Thomas’ Sons of Broad series. (Available in paperback on March 27.)

    The Sweetest Thing, by Jill Shalvis
    Tara has zero desire to go back to Lucky Harbor, Washington, but since her life has been quite bumpy lately, it’s really her only option. Besides, her sisters are there renovating an inn, so Tara will definitely be able to keep busy and try to NOT think of the downhill spiral that is her current situation. She meets a smoking hot, green-eyed sailor who wants to show her all sorts of good times. (Cue all of our sailboat, lovemaking fantasies!) Things start to go well for our heroine, but then her ex-husband shows up wanting her back. Will Tara realize that she’s right where she’s supposed to be? And will this sailor fellow whisk her away to tropical climes for some fun in the sun? This is the second book in Shalvis’ Lucky Harbor series. (Available in paperback and NOOK on March 27.)

    Hurricane Bay, by Heather Graham
    Someone is trying to set up private investigator Dane Whitelaw for murdering his ex-girlfriend. Dane is positive that this is actually the work of a serial killer living and working in the Miami area. (We believe you, Dane!) Dane ends up joining forces with Kelsey Cunningham. Her best friend has just gone missing, and Kelsey knows that Dane is her best resource. They both get involved in a pretty dark world, and everything comes to a grinding halt when Dane’s ex-girlfriend is found, strangled to death by his tie. Now Kelsey doesn’t want to trust anyone, not even Dane, who has actually had her heart for many years now. Kelsey, you can trust Dane! You know he’s a good guy with a big heart to go with those stunning biceps. This book includes a bonus story, “A Man Worth Remembering,” by Delores Fossen. (Available in paperback and NOOK on March 27.)

    Romance Roundup: Wolf Shifters, Memory Loss, and Navy Pilots  

    This week’s Romance Roundup includes a man whose beloved wife has lost her entire memory of him, two detectives investigating multiple deaths, and two bodyguards who just want to protect each other.  

    Wait for Dark, by Kay Hooper 
    What seems like a crop of random, deadly accidents in a North Carolina mountain town are actually deliberate murders. To make matters even more creepy, the victims get a note 24 hours before their deaths saying “Wait for Dark.” Special Crimes Unit investigator and all-around awesome lady Hollis Templeton and her team go to check it out, along with Hollis’ very sexy man, telepath Reese DeMarco. Here’s hoping they figure out who this evil, evil killer is soon, and that they then take a nice little mountain resort vacation. This is the latest book in Hooper’s multi-layered Bishop Special Crimes Unit series. (Available in paperback.)  

    Flight of the White Wolf, by Terry Spear
    Amelia White and Gavin Summerfield are arctic wolf shifters, which is convenient, because the plane she’s flying with him on board gets sabotaged and they end up stranded in the wilderness of northern Minnesota. Things between these two attractive people were already a tad awkward. The last time they saw each other Amelia whipped out her taser on him and was all “FEEL MY WRATH!” (Surely, Amelia, you did this for a very good reason, and we will listen to that reason while sipping from giant glasses of wine!) Now they’ve both cooled off, which is good, because they’ll need each other to keep warm. Gavin and Amelia, you are both strong, resourceful individuals. You can survive this, and maybe even make a fun little trip out of it. (You both would certainly look very sexy embracing that whole Lost in the Wild look!) This is the second book in Spears’ White Wolf series. (Available in paperback and NOOK.)  

    Fast Burn, by Lori Foster
    Sahara Silver really wants to recruit Brand Berry to join her elite bodyguard business. (Talk about office candy—no woman would mind meeting HIM by the microwave!) In all seriousness, he’s got a quite impressive set of skills that complement his chiseled exterior. He’s all lonely with his feelings for Sahara, though, because her agency will always be her number one priority, but he gets the opportunity to step up his game when she’s kidnapped. They’ll need to work together in order to get her free and survive a very messy situation. Then maybe, just maybe, when it’s all over, Sahara will realize that she can absolutely continue being her badass self AND find time in between missions to show Brand what bodyguard women are made of! This is the fourth book in Foster’s Body Armor series. (Available in hardcover, paperback, audiobook, and NOOK on March 20.) 

    Covert Game, by Christine Feehan
    Gino Mazza and Zara Hightower are involved in some pretty intense dealings. Gino is a deadly member of the paranormal GhostWalkers group, and he suffers from a severe lack of cuddling. Zara recently wiped a crime lord’s computer of valuable information—because she’s amazing like that—but now she’s been taken hostage. Her situation isn’t pretty, so Gino’s going to have to do some fancy footwork in order to get her out. (He’s already quite fancy in the sack, so we’re confident he’s got plenty of other skills up his sleeve.) Zara and Gino, now’s the time to show the world what you’re made of, so suit up and get yourselves out of this very bad situation! And when it’s over, get yourselves off on a little getaway that involves a remote tropical bungalow, yoga, and a no-clothing policy. This is the latest book in Feehan’s extensive GhostWalkers series. (Available in hardcover, audiobook, and NOOK on March 20.)  

    With This Man, by Jodi Ellen Malpas
    Jesse Ward is a Very Hot Husband and he knows it. This is all fine and dandy, as he and his wife are crazy about each other. Then she’s involved in a serious car accident, and the resulting head injury means she can’t remember the last 16 years of her life. (Oh, and she can’t remember him at all, either, which is pretty devastating for our hero.) Jesse may have that whole cool and confident exterior, but his wife always brought out his more lovey-dovey side. Now he needs to work extremely hard in order to win her over again. You can do this, Jesse! You’ve got the face. You’ve got the personality. And, to paraphrase Christopher Marlowe, you’ve got the body that would launch a thousand panties. Woo your woman until she gets to the point where she may not even need to remember you—but she’ll still want to stick around! This is the fourth book in Malpas’ This Man series. (Available in paperback, audiobook, and NOOK on March 20.) 

    One Unforgettable Kiss, by A.C. Arthur 
    Navy pilot Garrek Taylor has always desired one thing—to maintain a healthy distance between himself and his family and their shady history. (Many of us have been there, Garrek, so we feel your pain!) But then he’s faced with a military scandal, so he needs to lie low at his Virginia hometown. (Whatever happened, Garrek, we would all follow you around the world in little rowboats if we had to!) He doesn’t stay completely out of the way, though. He ends up winning an auction to go on a date with town beauty and home restorer Harper Presley. (Harper, please, please, please share your top renovating tips with us!) Harper has her own skeletons to hide, but Garrek makes her want to open up to him in all kinds of ways. Garrek and Harper, let go of the past and focus solely on each other and your future together! This is the second book in Arthur’s Taylors of Temptation series. (Available in paperback and NOOK on March 20.)

    7 Debut Romances to Add to Your TBR Pile Immediately 

    While many of us look forward to books by our favorite romance authors, there are tons of exciting debut romances coming out these days that are worth a read! The first half of the year is teeming with new voices to the romance genre, and we want to make sure these gems are on your radar. Your to-be-read pile can handle a few more additions, right?

    Let’s Talk About Love, by Claire Kann
    It’s always a good sign when a book cover makes you smile. After Alice told her girlfriend about her asexuality, their relationship came to an end. Heartbroken and just a tad burned, Alice has put a halt to her dating. Besides, working at the library seems to provide enough of a distraction. Until Takumi becomes Alice’s new co-worker. As their working relationship becomes a growing friendship, Alice worries that there’s more between them. Given her how her previous relationship ended, will Alice risk telling Takumi about her feelings and her asexuality, or will she stick to her “no dating” rule?

    Undefeated, by Stuart Reardon and Jane Harvey-Berrick
    If you weren’t aware, Stuart Reardon is a rugby player turned romance cover model and Undefeated is his first foray into romance writing! Teaming up with an established romance writer, Reardon writes what he knows—a hunky, rugby playing hero. Nick Renshaw used to be on top of the British rugby world. Now he finds himself rather lost and without any direction. Dr. Anna Scott might be his only saving grace. As the rugby team’s psychologist, Anna knows she shouldn’t fraternize with players, but as Nick realizes Anna is more mysterious than he thought, their attraction to one another reaches levels that are hard to ignore.

    Never Dare a Wicked Earl, by Renee Ann Miller
    Never Dare a Wicked Earl is the first book in the Infamous Lords series, where a charming hero finds himself bedridden on account of an angry mistress. His new medical attendant is unfazed by his rakish and improper behavior, but Hayden Milton will do his damnedest to run her off, just like the two attendants before her. However, Sophia Camden is determined to stick it out, because resigning would mean Sophia’s dream of becoming a doctor would go up in flames. If she can make in ten days caring for Hayden, he’ll help her with her dream of succeeding in the medical field.

    The Wedding Date, by Jasmine Guillory
    One of the most anticipated romance debuts that I’ve seen in quite some time, The Wedding Date’s charm begins with its cover. Seriously, look at it! Alexa Monroe never thought getting trapped in an elevator would lead to posing as Drew Nichols’ fake girlfriend at his ex’s wedding. But Drew is cute and the opportunity sounds too adventurous to resist. Though when the wedding ends and their ruse comes to an end, both Alexa and Drew realize they can’t stop thinking about one another. Too bad they don’t live near one another and their own lives are too busy for love. Or, maybe they can make things work after all.

    The Wolf at the Door, by Charlie Adhara
    A gay romance with enemies forced to work together, The Wolf at the Door is the first book in a brand new paranormal romance series. An attack by a werewolf turns Agent Cooper Dayton’s life upside down as he’s transferred to the secretive Bureau of Special Investigations. Unfortunately, his new partner is a rather curmudgeonly werewolf named Oliver Park. As part of a werewolf organization, Park’s role is maintain the professional and relatively peaceful relationship between wolf and man. But when people start going missing, Cooper and Oliver must strengthen their uneasy trust before all hell breaks loose.

    Forbidden by Faith, by Negeen Papehn
    Sometimes, there is more standing in the way of romance than uncertain feelings or workplace etiquette. In Forbidden by Faith, the main crux of the romance is the difference of cultures and religions and I’m so excited to dig into this one. Sara recognizes an instant attraction when she meets fellow Iranian, Maziar, but Sarah is Muslim and Maziar is Jewish. How will their differing faiths unite or divide them? Forbidden by Faith promises to provide a thought-provoking and incredibly interesting star crossed romance in this debut.

    The Kiss Quotient, by Helen Hoang 
    If you’re looking for a cute new contemporary romance, The Kiss Quotient is one you’ll definitely want to pick up. Stella Lane is deeply in love with math, and it’s that love that’s given her a demanding, but rewarding job. Unfortunately, the combination of her work schedule with her inexperience in social and romantic situations has Stella feeling like she’s missed out a few important things. Namely, love. Enter escort, Michael Phan. Stella hires him to educate her on courtship and seduction, but when Michael’s lessons end, will Stella be able to put them to use with anyone else? Or perhaps the student will become the master!
