New Releases for April

It’s April! I love April—the weather is beautiful and everything is in bloom. Plus, my daughter’s birthday falls in this glorious month. :) And it’s a VERY good month for New Releases! I have read several April releases and enjoyed each of them. So far, I’ve read Paris in Love: A Memoir by Eloisa James, About That Night by Julie James, and The Art of Duke Hunting by Sophia Nash. All are terrific books! Right now I’m reading If I Fall by Kate Noble and it looks to be another winner from this gifted author! I’m looking forward to reading A Week to Be Wicked by Tessa Dare, Taming an Impossible Rogue by Suzanne Enoch, and Confessions from an Arranged Marriage by Miranda Neville.

Which April releases have you read? Of those, which ones do you recommend? Which ones are you most looking forward to reading? Tell us and one lucky commenter will win a random book from my prize stash!

Until May, happy reading!

  5. I didn't realize how many April books I've already read until I checked the list. The Duke’s Perfect Wife, A Week to Be Wicked, At Your Pleasure, Taming an Impossible Rogue, Lady Drusilla’s Road to Ruin, The Art of Duke Hunting, Confessions from an Arranged Marriage, Master of Sin, About That Night, Barefoot Season, Trouble Me, Woodrose Mountain, Just Down the Road, The Cowboy Takes a Bride, Betrayal, and The Witness. Other April books I've read include Paris in Love by Eloisa James, The Garden of Happy Endings by Barbara O'Neal, Barefoot in the Sand by Roxanne St. Claire, Somebody to Love by Kristan Higgins, Sunrise Point by Robyn Carr, and The Good Father by Diane Chamberlain. The last four are April 24 releases, so the Dishes probably count them as May books. :) The amazing thing among so many books is that nearly all were terrific reads. But perhaps with so many of my autobuy authors on the list, I shouldn't have been surprised.

    I'm still looking forward to reading Married to a Stranger, How to Ravish a Rake, Imperial Scandal, The Seduction of Lady X, The Flower Reader, Tall, Dark, and Disreputable, Much Ado About Rogues, If I Fall, The Princess and the Peer, Hot Under Pressure, A Wish and a Prayer, and Deadly Dance. Any month I read three romantic suspense novels (Dodd, Roberts, and Davis) is an extraordinary month.

      You know, I have the same problem, Dianna. Such a wonderful problem to have! ;)

  24. Sigh, my Wish List grows longer. Just about all the historicals interest me. Of the contemporaries, Barefoot Season by Susan Mallery and Just Down the Road by Jodi Thomas would be my first picks. For romantic suspense, Betrayal by Christina Dodd and The Witness by Nora Roberts. There are a few interesting ones in the YA, paranormal and urban fantasy catagories I'll have to check out.
