    This week’s Romance Roundup includes a heroine who fights crime against women across the globe, a wolf shifter who wants to prove his innocence to his new love, and a guy who is about to find some very unexpected romance.

    The Greatest Risk, by Kristen Ashley
    Sixx is a mistress at a very high-end club known as The Bee’s Honey, and let’s just say the patrons of this fine establishment get erotic experiences they’ll never forget. Stellan is a master at this same club. (How do we get a lifetime membership?!) He and Sixx have the major hots for each other—watching the other one be a sexy boss at work can do that to a person—and things between them are finally about to go down. The thing is, Sixx has some ginormous emotional walls built up around her. Stellan is determined to break past those walls in as loving and gentle a way as possible. Will Sixx let him in? And will Stellan be able to bare all to our sensitive gal, both emotionally and physically, but especially physically? (Stellan, we’re all giving you positive vibes!) This is the third and final book in Ashley’s Honey trilogy. (Available in paperback and NOOK.)

    Shattered, by Allison Brennan
    Two very different women will need to unite if they’re going to solve decades-old murders. Maxine Revere is an investigative reporter, and she is trying to help her friend’s wife get exonerated for the murder of their son. Thing is, other boys have been murdered over the course of several years, and Maxine is convinced all of the cases, including this latest one, are linked. She teams up with Lucy Kincaid, a cop who hates reporters. (Suffice to say there is no love lost between these women.) They’re going to have to get over their respective disdain over the other’s profession if they’re going to solve these murders and help a mother avoid prison. Maxine and Lucy, get it together, you two! You’re more on the same page than you think. And when it’s all over, you can go out for margaritas and tacos! This is the fourth book in Brennan’s Max Revere series. (Available in paperback.)

    I Am Justice, by Diana Muñoz Stewart
    Our gal Justice Parish was saved from the streets and trained to fight crime against women around the world. (Justice, you’re our hero! Call us up if you ever need a place to crash!) Now she’s on one of her biggest assignments yet—she’s targeting a sex trafficking ring in the Middle East. (Again, Justice, you’re our hero!) Her mission brings her face-to-face with Sandesh Ross, who is by far the hottest thing in the desert. He’s also got some do-good tasks on his list, and he’s very, very intrigued by Justice. Then she gets injured, and, even worse, her cover is blown. Can they get their act together and work together to rescue ladies in danger? And when it’s over, can Sandesh find it in his sexy body to nurture Justice back to health AND show her the time of her life? This is the first book in Stewart’s Band of Sisters series. (Available in paperback and NOOK.)

    Born to Love, by Leigh Greenwood
    Holt Price, a former Night Rider, thinks he has the next chapter of his life figured out. He’s going back home to Galveston, Texas, and he’s going to reconnect with the woman he always thought he would marry. (Hmmm, Holt, buddy, sounds like we should all help you out and a do quick abs check. Ya know, to make sure you still have them. And no, we can’t take your word for it.) Then he meets a lovely lady by the name of Felicity Moore. She’s pretty much the perfect woman for him, so here’s hoping that Holt doesn’t take too long to realize this. (Buddy, sometimes life hands you a beautiful, new opportunity, and you have to take that beautiful, new opportunity and give it your best kiss! And a neck rub. A foot massage wouldn’t hurt, either.) This is the third book in Greenwood’s Night Riders series. (Available in paperback, audiobook, and NOOK.)

    All’s Fair in Love and Wolf, by Terry Spear
    Jenna St. James is on a mission to bring wolf shifter Sarandon Silver to justice. (We get it, Jenna. It should absolutely be illegal for him to be that hot.) Sarandon is eager to prove his innocence, though, and he’s going to stop at nothing to make sure Jenna realizes that he’s a very good wolf man. (Ahem, Sarandon? We wouldn’t mind a bit of proof ourselves, wink wink.) The Silver Town pack is eager to help Sarandon prove his innocence, and we really hope that means tons of hot, shirtless wolf-shifting men in one room. Will Sarandon find it in his heart to forgive Jenna for tracking him down? (Buddy, she was just trying to do her job!) And will Jenna show Sarandon just how lucky he is to have her tailing him? (Jenna, show him all of your best moves!) This is the latest book in Spear’s Silver Town Wolf series. (Available in paperback and NOOK.)

    Until There Was Us, by Samantha Chase
    Megan Montgomery had a Very Good Time at her cousin’s wedding two years ago. She did the yummy with Alex Rebat, one of the groomsmen. (Megan, sounds like you enjoyed a fantasy we all have!) She still hasn’t forgotten about him, and he’s still pretty hooked on her, too. (Totally understandable on both ends.) Now Megan is back in town, and Alex is determined to prove to her that he’s more than just a beautiful face with a body to match and sexy eyes and a tight behind and cheekbones that could cut ice. (Although none of these things are necessarily hurting his case.) Megan and Alex, get to know each for real ASAP and start planning your own nuptials! This is the eighth book in Chase’s Montgomery Brothers series. (Available in paperback and NOOK.)

    Romance Roundup: Investigative Reporters, Food Entrepreneurs, and Restaurant Owners 


    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 sheltered woman who meets a very different kind of guy, an organic food business owner who falls for a smoking hot lawyer, and a guy who wants to make a strong-willed woman his permanent wedding date.

    If Not for You, by Debbie Macomber
    The very sheltered Beth Prudhomme is finally taking her life into her own hands. She decides to move from Chicago to Portland and reconnect with her Aunt Sunshine, who is kind of the proverbial black sheep of Beth’s controlling family. Beth also meets the very good-looking Sam Carney. Beth doesn’t think he’s the one for her (he has tattoos, for gosh sakes!) and her parents for sure would SO not approve. (Beth, this is even MORE reason for you to give him a chance!) Then Beth gets into a really bad accident, and who visits her almost every day in the hospital? Yep, you guessed it! This sparks a very nice romance, which is threatened when Beth’s parents blow into town from the Windy City. Can Beth and Sam’s blossoming romance survive the worst catastrophe of all: meddlesome parental units? This is the latest book in Macomber’s New Beginnings series. (Available in paperback on August 22.)

    Sweet Stallion, by Deborah Fletcher Mello
    Naomi Stallion is all about organic food, and she’s got a thriving business she wants to bring to her town in Utah. (Naomi, we’ll help you set up shop!) She’s got to go toe-to-toe with corporate attorney Patrick O’Brien over the property she wants to buy in order to expand her business. (No woman would really mind going toe-to-toe with Patrick, but Naomi has a lot at stake, so she can’t afford to get too starry-eyed.) Patrick is a tad conservative, especially compared to our more free-spirited gal, and he doesn’t really get that whole organic food thing. He is a country guy, though, so surely Naomi will open his eyes to better practices. And when someone else gets involved in Naomi’s business in a not-so-great way, Patrick realizes that he wants to be there for her, like, all the time. Step up to the plate, Patrick, and show us all those biceps while you’re at it! (Available in paperback and NOOK on August 22.)

    Shattered, by Allison Brennan
    Two very different women will need to unite if they’re going to solve decades-old murders. Maxine Revere is an investigative reporter, and she is trying to help her friend’s wife get exonerated for the murder of their son. Thing is, other boys have been murdered over the course of several years, and Maxine is convinced all of the cases, including this latest one, are linked.

Maxine and Lucy, get it together, you two! You’re more on the same page than you think. And when it’s all over, you can go out for margaritas and tacos! This is the fourth book in Brennan’s Max Revere series. (Available in hardcover and NOOK on August 22.)

    The Beauty of Us, by Kristen Proby
    Riley Gibson can’t say no when her restaurant, Seduction, has a chance to be featured on the Best Bites TV network. That, however, would involve having cameras in the kitchen on a regular basis, which can kind of get in the way at times. Then she meets the show’s executive producer, Trevor Cooper, and realizes that the benefits will outweigh any inconveniences by a whole lot. (Trevor, you can follow us all around with or without a camera any time!) Trevor really wants to feature Riley’s restaurant on his show, and, oh, he also wants to be around Riley both on and off of the clock. Here’s hoping they both get their romantic priorities straight, and that Riley’s restaurant gets the recognition it deserves! This is the fifth book in Proby’s Fusion series. (Available in paperback, audiobook, and NOOK on August 22.)

    Shattered, by Helen Hardt
    The Steel family hasn’t had it easy lately, so Ryan Steel is very much looking forward to his brothers’ upcoming weddings. Sure, there are conspiracy theories galore flying around, but Ryan just wants to watch his brothers tie the knot and eat some wedding cake. (Hey there, Ryan! Need a plus one or two? ‘Cause we’re all available between now and Thanksgiving!) Things are starting to look mighty happy and peaceful, but Ryan and his main squeeze, detective Ruby Lee, are going through a bit of a rough patch. (Fact: A rough patch with Ryan is better than the most perfect summer day!) Can Ruby and Ryan each get over their respective issues, and maybe take a nice vacation together when all of the drama is over and the mysteries have been solved? This is the seventh book in Hardt’s Steel Brothers Saga series. (Available in hardcover, paperback, audiobook, and NOOK on August 29.)
