Never Conspire with a Sinful Baron

Miller (Never Kiss a Notorious Marquess) continues her “Infamous Lords” series with a charming entry featuring a surprisingly sweet hero engaging in a romantic rivalry to win a most worthy heroine.
PREMIUM

A Duke, the Lady, and a Baby

There’s enough camp in this story to house an army, but debuter Riley delivers a fine first outing in what looks to be a promising new series, welcoming a determined West Indian heroine to the Regency subgenre.
PREMIUM

Marry in Scarlet

Fans of multiaward winner Gracie (Marry in Haste), as well as devotees of traditional Regencies (think Georgette Heyer), will appreciate the familiar tomboy-tames-duke story, but readers with modern sensibilities may be turned off by the hero’s old-fashioned ideas about women.

Say Yes to the Duke

Though it takes some time for the story to warm up in the first act, best-selling James (Three Weeks with Lady X) comes through with another heartfelt, sensuous entry in the Wilde family saga (after Say No to the Duke).

Recipe for Persuasion

Clever allusions to Persuasion aside (even Jane Austen fans will be challenged to spot them all), this is a sumptuously multilayered story about the ways love gets tangled in family life and romantic relationships. Highly recommended.

Rakes and Roses

A desperate hero finds salvation with an older, wealthier heroine in an unusual twist on the typical romance power dynamic. Kilpack’s (Daisies & Devotion) story will appeal to readers looking for themes of redemption and a mild sensuality.

Gone with the Rogue

Though the romance starts promisingly, the characters never quite feel well-rounded enough to make the story emotionally engaging. An optional purchase for most libraries and for fans of traditional Regencies.

Chasing Cassandra

Kleypas’s dialog sizzles with sexual tension and witty banter, while the enjoyable secondary characters, particularly the tough but sensitive street urchin Bazzle add humor and warmth. Simply delightful. Recommended for all libraries that serve romance readers.
PREMIUM

The Virgin and the Rogue

A light and enjoyable comedy of errors from best-selling Jordan (The Duke’s Stolen Bride); this reads like a sexier version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
