Wolf Under Fire

This first installment in Tyler’s new series gives a good introduction to members of the newly formed team. The story is action packed, so readers who enjoy a little romance amid intense car chases and explosions will be wholly satisfied.

The Vanishing

With romance, mystery, intrigue, and a host of paranormal elements, Krentz’s (When All the Girls Have Gone) latest will hook fans across genres. The gratifying denouement leaves room for series potential as well.

The Dragon CEO’s Assistant

This latest installment in Burke’s “Golden Kingdom” series (after The Gryphon King’s Consort) is a heartwarming read. The relationship between Aidan and Nassim is built anew through the fiery pain of rediscovery of who each is alone, and what their love can achieve together. Highly recommended for fans of hot, paranormal romances.

Immortal Born

The latest installment in Sands’s long-running “Argeneau” vampire series (after The Trouble with Vampires) can stand alone. Paranormal romance fans will definitely enjoy this tale of immortal love and devotion.

The Mister

James, well-known for her best-selling “Fifty Shades” series, brings readers a novel of suspense and sexual awakening. Although the storyline is fairly predictable, fans will not be disappointed with the slow-build crescendo of Maxim and Alessia’s erotically charged romance.

Ana of California

Debut fiction author Teran's contemporary reimagining of Anne of Green Gables brilliantly captures the essence of Lucy Maud Montgomery's classic story of a girl who will win your heart with her well-meaning imperfections. A great example of an adult/YA crossover novel, this book would especially work well as a mother/teen daughter book group read. Highly recommended.

Playing Knotty

Winters's (Purely Professional) book is a rare find: a combination of heartwarming romance coupled with incredible sexual awakening and chemistry. Readers will cheer for Emma as she discovers not only her hidden desires but also her own attractiveness and self-worth as a plus-size woman. Ian, too, is irresistible, with his selfless nature and inner confidence. Fans of both romance and light erotica will eagerly devour every moment of this slow-burn love story.


The second title in the "All or Nothing" series (after Too Much) is initially difficult to follow as a stand-alone novel. The relationships among secondary characters introduced in the first book require further explanation and development for the plot to flow effectively. The chemistry between Ruthie and Tobias is very intense at times, yet while Tobias is a standard domineering male, Ruthie falls short of readers' expectations of inner strength and courage.


The connection between Mary and Elliott is intense, both emotionally and sexually. The mental power play involving control and trust is just as potent as the physical interaction; readers with a taste for light BDSM will not be disappointed. This fourth book in Kennedy's "Club Sin" series (Bared; Desired; Tamed) can easily be read as a stand-alone title.
