Pretend You Want Me

Eden’s strength as a novelist is making each book stand on its own as an individual read, but they’re even better when the streams of her series cross. Highly recommended for collections where the romantic suspense works of Nora Roberts and Jayne Ann Krentz are popular.

Phantom Game

In her 18th GhostWalker adventure (after Lightning Game) Feehan returns to the original teams at their mountain stronghold. Longtime series fans will enjoy glimpses into the lives of the team members, and Feehan’s choice of horticulture as the groundwork for the characters’ abilities is fascinating.


Fated Blades

Fans of the “Kinsmen” series (Silent Blade; Silver Shark) will enjoy this third adventure, but it’s best purchased by libraries with access to the entire series.

Barbarian Alien

Dixon’s books are recommended for larger public libraries and where demand warrants.

House on Fire

Burke’s second “Ashes and Dust” series installment ends on a cliff-hanger, and trilogy readers will be anxiously awaiting the next. Hudson and Wes from the “Not Dead Yet” trilogy feature prominently in this title, so libraries that own that series will also want to collect this one.

Lightning in a Mirror

Longtime fans will recognize names of people Harlan ran into during his five years away; the possibility of future books exploring those connections is exciting. Recommended for public libraries.

Tempting the Devil

James’s fifth entry in the “Quentin Security” series (after Heart of a Devil) is a fast-paced, steamy suspense. Fans of Cynthia Eden and Rachel Grant will enjoy.

Remembering Ramsey

Eden’s “Trouble for Hire” series offers linked stand-alone romantic suspense with alpha males who turn to putty in the right woman’s hands, and couples willing to break a few rules for each other. The fast-paced action, steamy romance, and emotional connections make her books a required purchase for public libraries.

Serve ’n’ Protect

Readers who like novels centering on dogs will enjoy this fifth book in O’Fallon’s “Federal K-9” series (after Armed ’n’ Ready). The physical and emotional injuries of the main characters add impact to the plot, even though readers might figure out part of the mystery early on.
