Shadow of Night

Harkness expertly weaves threads of science, history, and the occult around a passionate love story. Twilight fans looking for a more mature literary tale will enjoy this but should read A Discovery of Witches before diving into this installment in order to appreciate it fully. [“Destined to be as popular as its predecessor, Shadow of Night is a must buy,” read the review of the Viking hc, LJ 5/15/12.—Ed.]

The Great Escape

Phillips’s many fans will forgive the somewhat overstuffed plot as all loose ends are tied up en route to the inevitable happy ending. Other listeners may want to pass on this title, despite its professional and competent narration by actress Shannon Cochran. [“With brilliant dialog, sassy humor, and laserlike insight into what makes people tick, Phillips gifts readers with an engrossing, beautifully written romance that satisfies on all levels. Another winner from a stellar writer who never disappoints,” read the starred and more forgiving review of the Morrow hc, LJ 6/15/12.—Ed.]


This program should appeal to those drawn to unusual coming-of-age tales. [“Segmented into three parts, the narrative slowly builds into a gripping commentary on life’s biggest question: Why are we here? Ford’s latest work successfully expands our understanding of and sympathy for humankind,” read the review of the HarperCollins hc, LJ 1/12.—Ed.]

Invisible Monsters Remix

Jumping between discs is not something most listeners will enjoy, so either ignore the advice or stick with print. [“A must read for fans of the author or the original version of the book. Fans of speculative fiction or the grotesque will also enjoy the ride,” read the review of the Norton hc, LJ 5/15/12.—Ed.]

Tempting the Bride

Characters who rise from the pages, sensuality that takes readers to a delectable, erotic edge, and lush, mesmerizing language give the classic amnesia plot refreshing new life and result in another off-the-charts winner for Thomas. The hero’s “smutty love letter,” The Bride of Larkspear, plays a central role in this romance and is available in its entirety as an ebook. Thomas (Ravishing the Heiress) lives in Austin, TX.

’Twas the Night After Christmas

Sharply witty, deliciously sexy, and infinitely endearing, this holiday gem strikes an emotional chord that will resonate with fans long after the book has been closed. Jeffries’s first hardcover release, it serves as a bridge between her recent “Hellions of Halstead Hall” quintet and a new series that is slated to begin next spring. Jeffries (A Lady Never Surrenders) lives in North Carolina.
