New Releases for October


It’s October and PJ and I are at the Moonlight & Magnolias conference in Atlanta and, boy, are we having a blast! We’ll post some pictures soon! October also means that it’s time for Christmas-themed books to hit the shelves in full force. Personally, I enjoy Christmas books. I don’t go out of my way to read as many as I can, but I do enjoy them. They put me in a holiday mood. J Speaking of which, I read and loved Katie Lane’s Christmas-themed contemporary Hunk for the Holidays. It is a wonderfully funny story with a yummy hero! Of the other October books, I have read How to Capture a Countess by Karen Hawkins and loved it, too. Classic Karen Hawkins! I’m really looking forward to Rules to Catch a Devilish Duke by Suzanne Enoch, Seven Nights in a Rogue’s Bed by Anna Campbell, and His Mistletoe Bride by Vanessa Kelly. 

Which October 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 book (or two) and swag I pick up from the Moonlight & Magnolias conference!
 

Until November, happy reading!
