February Books

Doesn't it always seem as if new books come out in February?  I wonder if the publishing industry has a "sweeps" period like television and they choose to release more books during this time than in others because it makes their statistics look better.  Anyway, I've already posted about the new Karen Rose novel, which came out on the 4th, but there are several other books coming out this month.  (All publication dates are subject to change, so don't blame me if you can't get your book on the date I've listed.)

1. Concealed in Death by J.D. Robb.  (Available 2/18)  This is the latest in the In Death series, featuring Lt. Eve Dallas and her husband Roarke, a billionaire with a shady past.  I've posted about this series a lot and it is one of the only series that I've stuck with through all of its ups and downs.


2. Once in a Lifetime by Jill Shalvis. (Available 2/18)  As my long-time readers know, I've recently gotten into this series and I absolutely love it.  I pre-ordered this book back in December.

3. The Trouble with Honor by Julia London (Available 2/25)

4. Evening Stars by Susan Mallory (Available 2/25)

5. Tell Me by Lisa Jackson (Available 2/25)

6. All a Heart Needs by Barbara Freethy (Available 2/27) 5th book in the Callaway Series

7. City of Jasmine by Deanna Raybourn (Available 2/25)

8. Lost in Love by Kate Perry (Available 2/12)

9. Let the Dead Sleep by Heather Graham (Available 2/25)

10. Books 1-3 in the Fatal Series by Marie Force (Available 2/11)  (I reviewed the first book in the series Fatal Affair last year and didn't like it very much--I DNF'ed it.)

11. All I Ever Wanted by Kristen Higgins (Available 2/25)

12. Mesmerized by Candace Camp (Re-issue, Available 2/25)--my first historical romance, which I read my senior year of high school.

14. Captive Embraces by Fern Michaels (Re-issue, Available 2/20)

15. When the Duke was Wicked by Lorraine Heath (Available 2/25)

16. The Bride Says Maybe by Cathy Maxwell (Available 2/25)

17. Borrowed Dreams by Debbie Macomber (Available 2/25--might be a re-issue as it is subtitled "Debbie Macomber Classic)

18. Vampire Most Wanted by Lynsay Sands (Available 2/18)

19. Sex for Beginners Box Set by Stephanie Bond (Available 2/15)

Publisher: Berkeley
Series: Cincinnati Series
Price: $5.98 (Paperback) $7.99 (e-book) $28.28(Audible)
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


It seems like I've been reading Karen Rose novels my entire life.  I remember the day I came across Count to Ten in the Duane Reade on Queens Blvd.  I'd finished the paperback I brought with me to school that day while sitting in the Dining Hall eating lunch and needed something for the long bus ride home.  I almost didn't buy it because it was $9.99 and I hadn't gotten my financial aid money yet, but the cover copy called to me.  Not even the 500+ page count could scare me away.

I recently learned that Edge of Darkness is Ms. Rose's 20th book and in a strange way, I feel like a proud mama watching her child cross the stage to get their diploma.  I'm just a big ball of happy nostalgia, thinking back to all of the other books I've read by her and hopeful about the ones to come, so befor…

Fifteen Years Later: Review of "His Sinful Touch" by Candace Camp

Publisher: HQN
Series: Mad Morelands #5
Price: $5.98 (Paperback) $5.99 (e-book) $19.96(Audible)
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2


Most readers remember their first, the first book of their particular genre that they read, whether they enjoyed the book or not.  I have two firsts--the first romance I ever read was a Harlequin Intrigue written by Amanda Stevens.  If you've read my blog before you probably already know this.  The first historical romance I read was Mesmerized by Candace Camp, which was also the first book in her Mad Morelands series.  

I was a senior in high school when this series began and I remember seeing the paperback version of Mesmerized on the shelf at the Target on Queens Blvd (yes, I spent a lot of time on Queens Blvd as a teenager), and was pulled in by the gorgeous cover.  Apparently, that book has had several covers over the last 15 years, but this is the one I remember:


Isn't it pretty?  Of course from the cover I…

Publisher: Self-published
Series: Hackers #1

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2


Have you ever seen the description of a book and known immediately that it was going to be awesome and upon reading it were faced with the possibility that it might actually be better than you originally thought?  For me, that book was Hacking IT by Kimberly Dean.  A female white hat hacker using her skills to uncover a black hat hacker, who has stepped away from his computer and entered the real world?  Um, yes, please.

Review of "Come Sundown" by Nora Roberts

Title: Come Sundown
Author: Nora Roberts
ISBN: 1250123070
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Price: $14.99 (e-book) $16.49 (hardcover) $23.95 (Audible)
Rating:⭐️⭐️

I read my first Nora Roberts novel when I was a 16-year-old high school junior.  I remember seeing her books in all of the drug stores long before the fateful day on which I decided to actually buy one but had never thought anything of them.  From that day on, La Nora became the gold standard--the author all others had to live up to, the one to beat.  I remember sitting at my mom's kitchen table with one of her paperbacks and a sheet of paper, marking down which of her books were available at the libraries near me.  Her backlog was (and still is) immense and I was going to read them all.  While I still haven't read all of her books, I've read a good chunk of them, many of which have a place on my virtual keeper shelf, which is why I was so deeply disappointed in Come Sundown.

Review of "Ace of Spades" by Sandra Owens

Title: Ace of Spades
Author: Sandra Owens
ISBN: 9781503948990
Publisher: Montlake Romance
Series: Aces & Eights #3
Price: $4.99 (e-book) $9.17 (paperback) Free (Kindle Unlimited)
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️

I was really excited for this book.  I devoured the entire K2 series a couple of years ago, but somehow I missed the first two books of the Aces and Eights series.  I'd hoped that I'd be able to jump right into this book without having read the others, and in a way I was able to do so as the main plot had nothing to do with the others.  However, I feel that had I known the characters' backgrounds a little bit more, I would have felt more of a connection to them, which would have helped me have a better reading experience.


From the Publisher:
Two FBI agents struggle with desire in the shadow of a killer, in the third installment of Aces & Eights. Nate Gentry has been a rock for his two younger brothers since the day their mom walked out and left them with their abusive father. Now that…
