It’s that time of the week again, and I’ve found us some more great book news to celebrate!! From author tidbits and announcements, to reveals, to super-sales and surprise early releases that just went live, this Sunday is looking up to be a book blast!

<— BREAKING NEWS UPDATE!!! Preston’s Honor by Mia Sheridan IS LIVE!!!!!!

There were two brothers—identical twins—and though I loved them both, my soul belonged to only one.

AND… THIS ONE IS ON “DEAL OF THE DAY” SUPER-SALE ALERT TODAY ONLY!!!! All the Ugly and Wonderful Things: A Novel is a unique, controversial “forbidden love” story that rocked so many readers’ worlds (in good and bad ways – depends on the reader… P.S. Here’s my review) ➔➔➔➔➔➔

Natasha: So awesome!! A very different kind of romance.

Angela: Thanks for this!!! Been waiting for it to go on sale :D

Claire: Loved this book <3

Sandra: This book was fantastic

Judy: This book was hard to take at times but so worth it in the end. It was a fantastic read!

Addy: I couldn’t finish it. No matter how much I tried to be open minded…

NEXT BIG BREAKING NEWS!!! KARINA HALLE’S LATEST IS LIVE!!! AND YOU DON’T HAVE TO READ the previous books to enjoy this one (Black Hearts (Sins Duet Book 1)! The author says:

***Black Hearts is book one of the Sins Duet, with the sequel, Dirty Souls, releasing shortly after.

These books can be read as a standalone – though they are a spinoff of the Sins & Needles and Dirty Angels trilogies, you do not need to read those books in order to understand and enjoy Black Hearts and Dirty Souls as these books revolve around different characters.***

Switch by Adriana Locke JUST WENT LIVE!!!! OFFICE ROMANCE ALERT!!! She’s his new secretary, and the morning of her first day is an utter MESS (and she’s LATE for work)!! And then she sees him and realizes how HOT he is. But he’s not impressed. LOL!!

“…Being flustered is just the start of her problems.

Her punctuality is only the start of his. With a pink slip in hand, he’s been waiting on his new secretary to show up only to let her go. Then she rushes in with her doe eyes and rambling excuses, smelling like bacon and lavender. The termination paper falls to the side as she falls in his arms…”

And now… here’s more great news!

Jodi Ellen Malpas just revealed the GORGEOUS cover of her upcoming book, The Forbidden. FORBIDDEN (not just the title… but in the blurb ;) *waggles eyebrows* oooooooooooh you know I AM IN!!)

“Overwhelmed by the intensity of their one night together, Annie slips out of their hotel room. She is certain that a man who’s had such a powerful impact on her and who could bend her to his will so easily, must be dangerous. But she’s already in too deep. And Jack isn’t only dangerous. He is forbidden…”

Trudy Stiles revealed the cover for her upcoming release in her “Forever Family” series entitled “Dear Callie” and reminds us that Callie was a character in “Dear Emily (Forever Family Book 1)” (one of “Carly’s” friends). The author says:

“I’ve been writing/outlining various stories for over six months, not really sure what the next one would be. But this story has suddenly consumed me and I can’t wait for you all to read it.

Dear Callie is a celebration of true and forever friends…”

Aurora Rose Reynolds announced the preorder of her upcoming book, Until Sage (Until Him)

Pepper Winters revealed the cover of her upcoming book Throne of Truth (Truth and Lies Duet Book 2) (<— DARK ROMANCE DUET CONCLUSION!!!) and it is stunning, too! Yep. I think it’s a great match to that gorgeous ethereal cover for book #1 (Crown of Lies (Truth and Lies Duet Book 1), ’cause you can tell he’s tormented and handsome as all get out! It’s coming out this month.

Milissa: I have read crown of lies Pepper Winter and I can’t wait on the next book!!

H.M. Ward announces her SERIES CONCLUSION!!! The final book in her “Arrangement” series ➔ The Arrangement 23 (SERIES FINALE – The Ferro Family) is coming out soon! WHOA. That is A LOT of books (and then you’ve got all the spinoff-series crossovers…). This one is up for preorder, but she’s trying to get it to go live even earlier.

Belle Aurora‘s book #3 in her RAW series has been posted (the cover) and OMG!!! I read the first book and that ending STUNNED me (P.S. Here’s my review) and now… there’s more. ‘Cause it’s a trilogy and this is the final book! No release date or blurb yet but it does say this:

“Twitch and Lexi.
Third and final book in the Raw Family series.”

AND in case you missed it, my latest book review is up! Book Review – Open House by TC Matson. The blurb promises a tumultuous relationship (and hints at heartache), and oh boy do we get it. Her torment, and some of the “OH NO HE DIDN’T!!!” moments wrung me out!!!

Ooooh. I’m first! Nyah nyah na na na.

The cover of Black Hearts is a little odd. A man smoking. Anti-smoking laws and advertising restrictions etc are very strong in Australia and I’d be surprised if it would be published like that here. The guy looks kinda like and old school pirate or something anyway. LOL.

Switch sounds pretty good, except, ‘smelling like bacon and lavender’???? Hmmm. Don’t think I’d put it like that in the blurb. A new perfume, anyone? Ugh.

Maryse February 19, 2017 at 6:15 PM

Jan. Everyone loves the smell of bacon.

Come on! ;)

R. Renee February 19, 2017 at 6:17 PM

I agree. That’s an odd blurb…

Maryse February 19, 2017 at 7:03 PM

She smells like both of those things ’cause in her rush that morning, she spilled multiple things on herself. Dipped her sleeves in her breakfast etc… you know the drill. ;)

I did highlight only a portion of the blurb and unfortunately that part gets confusing out of context. :P

Jan February 19, 2017 at 7:51 PM

OK Maryse. I see where it’s going.

MichelleS February 19, 2017 at 10:01 PM

Why do men in books have to have so many smells? Woodsmoke, leather & clean sweat? Ick.

And the women too. Coconut & strawberries? Gross!

Cheryl February 19, 2017 at 10:48 PM

Yeh, who doesn’t like the smell of bacon, especially my dog, but bacon and lavender?! Would be like trying to cover up the smell of bacon with lavender scented Febreze. Definitely not a turn on.

Jan February 20, 2017 at 12:14 AM

LOL Michelle. The ‘clean sweat’ one appears in books pretty often, doesn’t it? Always makes me think ‘Huh?’ I mean come on, sweat just stinks!

Bacon and Febreze? Eeeeewwww!!! Just, noooooooooo……..

My bichon/schnauzer likes bacon
But for the smell of febreze he’s not makin’
A run for his dish
He’d rather eat fish
Or bacon of course
Even without sauce

(I know, I’m struggling…….I’ll stop now)

I can’t wait for Raw: Rebirth!
