Happy February, y'all!

This week I'm starting off with Sweet Deal by Logan Harper.


Stacey is Sassy (staceyissassy) | 1221 comments I'm about to start an ARC of Teach Me Something by Audrey Bondurant.

The Duke by Kerrigan Byrne releases this week. From early reviews posted, there has been a mixed reaction to this one. I loved it, but I've loved each instalment. :-)

I finished the new Jill Shalvis last night: Accidentally on Purpose. Overall I enjoyed it, but I'm not really loving this latest Heartbreaker Bay series like some of her others. Which is inevitable, I guess, with a prolific author. Might just need to reread some old favorites. Like the Wilder brothers.

Irisheyes | 892 comments Just finished Seven Minutes in Heaven by EJ yesterday. I really enjoyed it. It had one of my favorite tropes - I love when the H/h isn't what he/she seems. It makes for great grovel scenes.

Not sure what's up next. I've got Kelly Bowen's Duke of My Heart ready if I want to stay with historicals. It's always hard after I read a really great book to stay in that genre cause anything after always seems to pale in comparison.

I did a quick reread of Balogh's Someone to Hold in order to write a review and liked it better on the second read--maybe because I compared it less to the Survivors' Club books, which I rank with her finest work. Balogh is planning a book for the bigamously wed countess (#4), and I am really looking forward to that one. It's not often that a historical romance features a heroine old enough to have three adult children, and then there's the drama of the former countess's situation. The story promises to be fascinating. Today I will begin reading What it Takes by Shannon Stacey. I'm a big Kowalski Family fan, so I'm excited about this family reunion book.

I have the same problem which is why I'm lucky I like so many sub-genres. :-)

I agree Manda . I love the Wilder brothers. This new Shalvis didn't work st all for me.

The next Balogh is out tomorrow. It will be my reward for preparing for a big meeting Friday. And then the new Aaronovitch Rivers of London book.

Ooh Janga I didn't know about the Countess' book which sounds wonderful or the Kowalski--I didn't enjoy the series Shannon Stacey did recently but that sounds good.

Deb, I think the Countess's book will probably be a 2018 pub. Someone to Wed, Alexander Westcott's story, is next. The Kowalski book, OTOH, will be released February 28, so not long to wait on that one. The last Tuesday in February is definitely a Super Tuesday in Romancelandia--a ton of new releases on that day. I have nine review books releasing that day, including Meredith Duran's, which I loved.

Glad to hear its not just me, Deb. When I love her writing I really love it, so i think that's why disappointment is so hard. :(

Vanessa | 2 comments I'm finally starting Because of Miss. Bridgerton by Julia Quinn. I'm already a big fan of Julia so I have high expectations, but it was 2016's runner up for best romance if I remember correctly so I'm not worried.
