- Lord of Shadows (The Dark Artifices Book 2) by Cassandra Clare <— TUMMY TWISTER ALERT!! Tessa LOVED this recent release!!
Tessa: Lord of Shadows. GAH. So many emotions and my stomach could not stop twisting whenever they mentioned what MIGHT happen. Because, you know it’s all going to go wrong; it’s only book two! Also, add in all the lies and emotions that have to happen, and then that end! GAH. Even accidentally reading it, it still hit me hard!

- Omega Mine (Alpha & Omega Book 1) by Aline Hunter <— HOT BAD-ASS BIKER ALPHA-SHIFTER ALERT!! MichelleS is on a GOOOOOOD paranormal kick! Look what she found us!
MichelleS: FLT: “Don’t laugh. I needed some good old style PNR, and this is delivering on that note. He’s about as alpha as they come. 6 foot six, tattoos, Harley riding, long dark hair, and the Omega of all the shifters. She’s 5 foot nothin’, short spikey blonde hair with pink highlights, and super sassy. And she’s his “mate”, of course. I said DON’T LAUGH. It’s hot. Now THIS is hot…. I’m over the detailed sex “stuff” involving fluids & the like. This is soooo much hotter! Do you agree? “Air escaped her lungs in a quiet sigh and her lids slid closed when his lips brushed against hers, side to side, left to right. The gesture was so innocent, so intimate. Her mouth opened in welcome and he accepted the invitation like a gentleman.”
- The Nightmare King (The Kings Book 11) by Heather Killough-Walden <— LIVE!!! HEATHER KILLOUGH-WALDEN ALERT!! AFTER SPENDING TIME IN THE ICU, SHE CAN NOW SEE THE FUTURE… and then there’s him… “Nick has only been alive for a few short hours.

- All the Lies We Tell (Quarry Book 1) by Megan Hart <— MEGAN HART ALERT!! Sharon is enjoying this recent release!
Sharon: Anyone read All the Lies We Tell by Megan Hart? I picked it up a few day ago (she is an angsty favorite) and I’m only 9% in and I’m hooked. There is something about her writing style that always draws me in.
Maryse: Sharon, I LOVE Megan Hart. She’s totally contemporary romance but with that dark and somber edge to her stories. And twisty… love her! Please let us know what you think when you’ve finished.

- Susan Fanetti <— BIKER BOOKS & SO MUCH MORE ALERT!! Jessica HIGHLY recommends this author!
Jessica: Susan Fanetti has the Signal Bend and So Cal and brazen bulls biker series – EVERY SINGLE book is steamy, real, intelligent, never cliche or contrived and with flawed, gritty and swoon worthy heroes. That’s not even mentioning her non biker stuff – The Paganos – Italian American hotties with their sassy and quirky women. Everything she writes is ten x more than anything similar or in the same genre.
- The Director and Don Juan: The Story Sisters #2 (The Blueberry Lane Series) by Katy Regnery <— KATY REGNERY’S LATEST IS LIVE!!! OFFICE ROMANCE ALERT!!! “…While Alice spent the next three years getting her own company off the ground, Carlos became her indispensable right-hand man — executive assistant and office manager, loyal counsel and trusted co-worker. And all the while, they were quietly falling in love with each other...”
- Dartmoor Series by Lauren Gilley <— BIKER BOOK ALERT!!! Jessica also recommends THESE!!!
Jessica: Lauren Gilleys Dartmoor series is KICKASS – hot bikers who are real and gritty and dark… Felix Lecuyer the big murderous Cajun will have you ruined for any other book boyfriend. I can’t even. The Dartmoor series is smart, intelligently written with awesome in club politics – not just some crappy biker series with the same old same old each guy gets a girl scenario. It’s hot and believable and has amazing relationships between all the characters. Seriously, you must try if you haven’t already.
- The Catch (The Player Duet Book 2) by K. Bromberg <— BASEBALL START ALERT!!! K. BROMBERG’S LATEST IS LIVE!!! And now the “duet” is complete. P.S. Here’s book #1 ➔ The Player (The Player Duet Book 1)

Tee hee!! “…When he walks into my office, asking for my help, I’m shocked, but nothing prepares me for what I’m about to learn. I see how far he’s gone to redeem himself and I know that he’s changed. I also know that, as a priest, he’s more off limits than ever...”
Kelsey: You had me at priest!!! ????
Ilsa: Priest books always intrigue me!
- The Beard Made Me Do It (The Dixie Warden Rejects Book 5) by Lani Lynn Vale <— LANI LYNN VALE’S LATEST BIKER BOOK IS LIVE TOO! Second chance romance? She once broke his heart and now he wants NOTHING to do with her… “…He’s only a friend. The words had slipped out of Ellen’s mouth, and before she could recall them, or better yet, explain them, Jesse is gone from her life for good, taking her heart with him...”
- Darkness Matters by Jay McLean <— HE’S A RECLUSE ALERT!!!! College student is a TOTAL RECLUSE and has a new neighbor… “…Why, Noah, why? The same three words keep him up at night, struggling for air while gripping a plastic cylinder containing white pills to match the white label with his name printed in ink as deep and dark as his memories—memories that turned him into a recluse. A shut-in. An introvert. Luckily for him, that’s not how the girl next door sees him...”

- Wolf Nip: Northern Lights Edition (Granite Lake Wolves Book 6) by Vivian Arend <— LIVE!!! PARANORMAL ROMANCE ALERT!
- Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer <— SHE LEAVES LETTERS TO HER DEAD MOTHER AT HER GRAVE… “…When Declan reads a haunting letter left beside a grave, he can’t resist writing back. Soon, he’s opening up to a perfect stranger, and their connection is immediate. But neither Declan nor Juliet knows that they’re not actually strangers…” Debbie recommends this one!
Debbie: The latest book I have read is Letters to the Lost, which has an interesting plot. The characters meet via a letter in a cemetery. I would rate it a 4, maybe 4.5. It is YA.
