    This week’s Romance Roundup includes a lady space captain looking out for her crew, a sexy cowboy who is NOT going to let anyone harass his woman, and two people who are in major need of healing after great tragedy.

    Hot Target Cowboy, by June Faver
    Colt Garrett has the whole firstborn, oldest brother, I’m-The-Sexy-But-Also-Responsible-One thing down pat. But that doesn’t fool the ladies, especially Misty Dalton. She’s the sister of one of his brother’s friends. (This will make the wedding planning significantly easier, for sure.) Oh, and she’s pretty much the only woman on the planet who makes Colt want to drop everything he’s doing and, ahem, focus on her. (Misty, please share the secrets of your goddess ways!) Misty is also quite responsible. She’s helped her family a lot throughout the years, especially since her mom died. But now someone is making some pretty lethal threats against her family and she needs a helping hand. Colt is the manly man for the job, and he’s not going to let his biceps just sit there and go to waste while someone threatens his woman. This is the second book in Faver’s Dark Horse Cowboys series. (Available in paperback and NOOK.)

    Cowboy Wolf Trouble, by Kati Ballenger
    There are seven shifter clans roaming the Montana mountains, being so fierce and looking so fine, but now there is something very, very bad out to get them. Rancher Wes Calhoun is a shifter who used to lead a renegade pack, but he has since given up naughty ways and is now naughty in only the best sense of the term. (Oh, Wes, please show us this side of you!) Wes ends up butting heads with rancher Naomi Evans. She’s as human as can be, but after meeting Wes and becoming attracted to him, she becomes involved in his world. (Naomi, we don’t blame you at all! Wes has that kind of magnetism.) Wes and Naomi are going to have to work very hard in order to fight evil and live a peaceful existence. Here’s hoping they manage to defeat these evil forces—and that Wes spends the rest of his life showing our gal just how good a reformed bad boy can be! This is the first book in Ballenger’s Seven Range Shifters series. (Available in paperback and NOOK.)

    Nightchaser, by Amanda Bouchet
    Romance readers who yearn for more outer space love stories will devour this yarn! Captain—and Ultimate Badass—Tess Bailey and her crew are on the run from a really bad person who wants them all dead or alive. Their only real option at this point is to put their trust in Shade Ganavan, who can take us all to a metaphorical galaxy far, far away any day of the week. Tess isn’t totally feeling this arrangement, but she has a crew to think of. Plus, she likely just hasn’t seen Shade wearing nothing but a laser gun holster. (He has the sex appeal of Malcolm Reynolds in “Firefly” times a bajillion.) Tess and Shade will need to cooperate quite a bit in order to help Tess and her crew escape and even possibly defeat the bad guys. Will they manage to escape with everyone intact? Can Shade drop the whole cocky attitude and bare his heart and his torso to Tess? And, most importantly, will Tess get to test out his laser gun? This is the first book in Bouchet’s Nightchaser series. (Available in paperback and NOOK.)

    The One You Fight For, by Roni Loren
    The town of Long Acre experienced some major tragedy 14 years ago, and psychology professor Taryn Landry lost her little sister in it. Taryn now devotes her life and career to helping people avoid what she has been through. (Taryn, you are a hero to us all and we’re going to line up outside of your office to take turns being your assistant!) The perpetrator of said tragedy was the brother of Shaw Miller, and Shaw has spent a good chunk of his life at this point avoiding people who can recognize him for who he really is. Things are starting to look up for Shaw now that Taryn is back in his life. It’s not going to be easy, though, because lots of people just want to blame Shaw for horrible things that he never actually did. (Shaw, point these people out to us! We will give them a loving but stern speech!) These two will need to stay strong if their love is going to thrive. Fortunately, Taryn is an exceptionally strong and loving woman, so Shaw is in great hands. This is the third book in Loren’s Ones Who Got Away series. (Available in paperback and NOOK.)

    Romance Roundup: Mechanics, Cult Survivors, and High School Sweethearts 

    Warning: preg_match_all(): Compilation failed: invalid range in character class at offset 7 in /homepages/23/d339537987/htdocs/do/wp-content/themes/p2/inc/mentions.php on line 77

    This week’s Romance Roundup includes a romantic mechanic, reunited high school sweethearts, and a modern retelling of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women.

    Spring Forward, by Catherine Anderson
    Crystal Malloy has a full plate of responsibility. She’s trying to take care of her grandfather, for one. He lives in a retirement community and likes to break the rules now and then. (Sounds like he’s a lot of fun and a lot of work at the same time!) Her care duties put her in front of Tanner Richards, a Very Hot Man who occasionally helps her grandfather. (Let’s make one thing clear, though: Tanner is two generations younger than his older friend and has the face and body and arms to prove it!) Tanner and Crystal start seeing more of each other, and soon realize they’d like to see each other in a setting that’s a tad sexier than a nursing home. (Yes, this sounds like an excellent idea!) Will Crystal lighten up a bit? And will Tanner show her that beautiful body of his over and over again? This is the fourth book in Anderson’s Mystic Creek series. (Available in paperback and NOOK on January 2.)

    Promise Not to Tell, by Jayne Ann Krentz
    Virginia Troy was in a cult as a kid, and a fire in the cult compound killed her mother, so yeah, she’s had it rough. Years have gone by, and Virginia now owns her own art gallery in Seattle. (Virginia, you go, girl!) Tragedy strikes again, though, when one of her artists commits suicide. The artist left behind some clues, and Virginia gets help looking into these clues from private investigator Cabot Sutter. He was also part of that cult as a kid, and so he knows our gal better than anyone. (Did we mention that he also now has the physique and mind of a mature, adult man, one to whom any woman would give her best “Come hither” look?) Now that they’re free adults, Virginia and Cabot can explore their feelings for each other and look into this murder. Here’s hoping they solve the mystery soon, and that they build a loving and peaceful life together! (Available in hardcover, NOOK, and audiobook on January 2.)

    The Spring Girls, by Anna Todd
    Gather round, Louisa May Alcott fans! This modern retelling of Little Women features four sisters living on a military base in New Orleans with their mother while their father serves in Iraq. (Major kudos to military members and military families stationed, well, everywhere!) Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy are each trying to carve out a life for themselves. Meg wants to be an officer’s wife. (Follow your bliss, Meg, but please make sure you go to college first!) Jo wants to escape to New York City. (Can’t say we blame you, Jo! If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere!) Beth works really hard and doesn’t want to leave the house. (We all have those days, Beth!) And Amy is, well, Amy. They’re all still really young, so there’s plenty of time to watch them grow and blossom and pursue their dreams. (Wait! We’re still going to get Laurie, right?!) (Available in paperback and NOOK on January 2.)

    The Ones Who Got Away, by Roni Loren
    Liv Arias and Finn Dorsey were high school sweethearts. Then something awful happened during their senior year, not just to them, but also to a bunch of their classmates. The group was collectively referred to as The Ones Who Got Away, and now, 12 years later, they are about to relive the horror for a documentary. (Note to self: Stop whining about the traumatizing experience that was every high school math class!) Liv and Finn haven’t seen each other in a long time, and let’s just say that the years have been very kind to both of them. They’ve gone from teenagers to man and woman, and they are each bringing their A-game this time around. Can they learn to love each other as adults and help each other overcome their shared traumas? This is the first book in Loren’s The Ones Who Got Away series. (Available in paperback and NOOK on January 2.)

    Collision Course, by Marie Harte
    Florist Joey Reeves is a single mom with zero spare time on her hands. Then she meets Lou Cortez, a tattoo-covered mechanic who is so different from her that he might as well be from a different planet. (A sexy planet. One filled with sexy men, each of them eager to please their very own lucky lady.) Anyway, Joey wants to keep a lid on it because…well…single mom and…what if something goes wrong and…scared of everything and…omigod Joey just go for it! Life is too short, and Lou really needs help wiping oil residue off of his mighty, mighty form. Joey will soon realize, though, that she can be the yin to Lou’s yang, and that together they can create car and flower-loving babies. So Joey, you go hire that babysitter, grab a damp towel, and get down the fun stuff ASAP! This is the fourth book in Harte’s Body Shop Bad Boys series. (Available in paperback and NOOK on January 2.)

    Born of Vengeance, by Sherrilyn Kenyon
    The latest book in Kenyon’s The League: Nemesis Rising series features Bastien Cabarro and Ember Wyldestarrin, who used to be each other’s wingman. They’ve both had it rough, to say the least. He was framed for his family’s murder, for one. As for Ember, her parents were killed and she had to go into exile. Ember wants to stay away from the troubles plaguing her world, but she is eager to make people pay for their actions. As for Bastien, he’s got a lot of people relying on him to complete certain missions, so there is no time to waste. He and Ember are both thirsty for justice, and certainly for each other. There’s a whole lot of intrigue and mystery going on, so here’s hoping Ember and Bastien manage to keep their heads above water through it all and ultimately realize that they are, like, kind of perfect for each other. (Available in paperback on January 2.)
