New Releases!

Barbara Vey -- November 26th, 2013

It’s so hard for me to believe that this is Thanksgiving week already, but all I’m hearing about is Black Friday.  Well, don’t forget about small business Saturday.  You’ll have a chance to visit all those independent book stores and other small business so they can be around for a while.  It just wouldn’t be Christmas for me if I wasn’t giving books away.  There’s books for everyone, even if they aren’t big readers.  Andrew asked for an illustration book about fonts and posters and advertisement.  I looked through it and even though I never would have picked it up otherwise, I found it fascinating.  No excuses…go forth and find a special book for everyone on your list.  Here’s some new release suggestions to get you started.

And the Author Recommends…

Barbara Vey -- September 19th, 2013

People have been posting on Twitter and Facebook that they have successfully listened to the For the Love of Romance webcast.  Here’s the link they give.  PW has not officially notified me that it is ready and when I tried to listen I only heard part of the audio.  Please listen when you have time and let me know if it works for you.  I’d love to hear your feedback.  What you liked, what you’d want to hear in future webcasts.

And now, here’s what the authors are recommending.

cold

.Redeeming Love

Carla Neggers recommends COLD by Stella Cameron (thriller)

Debbie Kaufman highly recommends her all-time favorite inspirational story, Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers.

.

.

Every Breath She Takes

The Wolf Gift.Pamela Clare recommends Every Breath She Takes By Norah Wilson (romantic suspense)

Anne Elizabeth recommends Anne Rice’s The Wolf Gift – Rice’s hero is flawed and perfect in so many wonderful ways and speaks to the primal nature of man and the beast. I’m looking forward to the next book.

.

.

HotHead-Suede

.Silverhawk_cover-xxx

Jade Lee recommends Hot Head by Damon Suede (M/M romance)

Jennifer Jakes recommends Silverhawk by Barbara Bettis.  (Historical Romance) It’s one of my fave books ever and I would LOVE to recommend her book.

.

.

DickCover17877304KT Grant recommends Take Care, Sara by Lindy Zant. This book will tear at your heart, but in a good way. Don’t be surprised as you read, you find a lump in your throat and tear up at certain points.

Holly Jacobs recomments How to Write a Dick by Colleen Collins/Shaun Kaufman,   This is a fantastic read for writers, and for people who just want to know how a detective really works. (Nonfiction)

Bottom Line:  Ok, I’ve got to admit the title How to Write a Dick made me think of a Dear John letter but the guy is named Dick.  I need more coffee.

.

.

The Best ManJeanne Adams recommends The Best Man by Kristan Higgins.  Kristin blood_trinityhas a knack for pulling the heartstrings even as she gets the reader involved with her quirky, funny and fabulous characters.  You get to know the town, the family and feel a part of every story she writes.

Tracey Devlyn highly recommends Blood Trinity by Dianna Love and Sherrilyn Kenyon. I love the entire Belador series! Evalle is bad ass and the sexual tension between Evalle and Storm keeps me turning the pages.

.

Shirley Jump highly recommends Carolina Home by Virginia Kantra. I love everything she writes! She never fails to make me cry!

Tonya Kappes recommends It Takes a Witch:  A Wishcrafter Mystery by Heather Blake.  Heather  delivers a page turning mystery with many subplots that tie right into the main plot. Blake has built a magical world full of whimsical characters and creatures with a fun loving witch family in the Enchanted Village. Blake will have you wondering who did what and laughing all at the same time.

.

.
Flashpoint
Leaving HavenAllison Leotta recommends Kathleen McCleary’s Leaving Haven.  The first chapter starts with a woman leaving a much-wanted baby at the hospital, and the rest of the book goes back in time to reveal why she did it.  This is an emotionally charged and incredibly plotted story about friendship, love, betrayal, and consequences.

Adrienne Giordano recommends Flashpoint by Suzanne Brockmann. Flashpoint is part of the Troubleshooters series and was the first book I read by Suzanne. After reading it, I went back and read each book in the series and love her flawed characters.

.

.

English GirlMarilyn Baron recommends The English Girl, by Daniel Silva sign-off-320(Suspense and Foreign Intrigue). I love Daniel Silva’s Gabriel Allon character—master assassin, art restorer and spy—and this novel may be the best yet in his series. Mystery, mistresses, mayhem and great writing. This book has it all.

Mary Buckham loves Patricia McLinn’s, Sign Off. The debut of a new mystery series the finely developed characters, whip-sharp dialogue and setting put this on my keeper shelf.

.

Lady AwakenedBeauty and the Bounty HunterAngie Fox recommends Beauty and the Bounty Hunter by Lori Austin (who also writes as Lori Handeland). Sweet, sexy and funny – with a plot that knocks westerns on their ear. I never knew what was going to happen next and I loved every minute of it.

Jeannie Lin says “The last book that blew me away was A Lady Awakened by Cecilia Grant. A widow in a desperate situation enlists a young nobleman to provide her with an heir that she can pass off as her late husband’s. The emotion between the hero and heroine built page upon page and felt so achingly real that you believed and hurt for them through every moment.

The winner of yesterday’s wonderful gift basket from Nancy Naigle is Crystal Fulcher.  Congratulations!  Please contact Nancy at nancy @ nancynaigle.com to claim your prize.
