New Releases for January

Happy New Year! It’s a new year for new releases. Because of the holidays, I haven’t had a chance to read any of these January releases, but I plan to make time soon. And of course, that won’t stop me from putting those gift cards I received for Christmas to good use and purchasing some of these great romances! If you could see my TBR pile (or mountain, rather), you would see exactly what I’m talking about. lol! I’m looking forward to The Lady Most Willing… by Julia Quinn, Eloisa James, and Connie Brockway, along with True Love at Silver Creek Ranch by Emma Cane and The Seduction of Elliot McBride by Jennifer Ashley. I can’t wait to read them all!                                  


So, which January 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 February, happy reading!

  3. I'm looking forward to the JQ anthology; I'm not much of an Eloisa James fan. It seems to me that there are several author on the historical list that are new to me, so will check some of these books out and give the authors a try.

    1. Deb, The Lady Most Willing... will be my reward after I read and write reviews for two books. Can't wait!

    2. The Lady Most Willing... is wonderful! I grinned from beginning to end. I'm not sure which of the ladies (Quinn/James/Brockway) came up with the idea of co-writing a novel but when these three talented authors (and good friends) get together, the result is magic!

  8. I love checking this list every month, Andrea. You'll love The Lady Most Willing. It's such a fun read and by three of the best in the business, all three top favorites with me.


    I've already read the following.

    The Seduction of Elliot McBride – Jennifer Ashley
    The Lady Most Willing… – Julia Quinn, Eloisa James, Connie Brockway
    True Love at Silver Creek Ranch – Emma Cane
    Sugar Springs – Kim Law
    Sea Glass Winter – JoAnn Ross
    Chance of a Lifetime – Jodi Thomas
    Countdown to First Night – Jillian Hart, Margaret Daly, Barbara Minton

    These are on my TBR or TBB shelves (wooden or electronic):

    Mrs. Lincoln’s Dressmaker – Jennifer Chiaverini
    A Breath of Scandal – Elizabeth Essex
    The Scoundrel Takes a Bride – Stefanie Sloane
    Waking Up with a Rake – Connie Mason & Mia Marlowe
    Moonlight Masquerade – Jude Deveraux
    The Chocolate Kiss – Laura Florand
    The Road to Cardinal Valley – Earlene Fowler
    The Missing Manuscript of Jane Austen – Syrie James
    Here I Go Again – Jen Lancaster
    Me Before You – Jojo Moyes
    Out of Warranty – Haywood Smith
    The Plum Tree – Ellen Marie Wiseman
    Dream Eyes – Jayne Ann Krentz

    Jen Lancaster is a new writer to me, but I love the sound of a book about the high school mean girl who grows up and meets karma. There's a reason SEP's Aint't She Sweet is an all-time favorite. :)

    1. Thanks, Janga. While composing this list, I added Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker to my own TBB list. You'll have to let me know how you like it!

  9. I'm just getting back into reading mode now that the holiday frenzy has passed. Of the January releases, I've only read The Lady Most Willing... but I have many more on my tbr.

    Lots of great reading ahead! I'm most looking forward to:

    The Seduction of Elliot McBride - Jennifer Ashley
    Wyoming Bride - Joan Johnston
    Perfect Fit - Carly Phillips
    Sea Glass Winter - JoAnn Ross
    Timber Creek - Veronica Wolff
    Killing Time - Cindy Gerard

    1. Glad to hear it, PJ. Every year I say I'm going to read more during the holidays and I never do. I need to not say that and be surprised when I'm able to read a little! lol

      Delete
  10. Andrea, thanks for the great list! As always, I'm staggered by the number of books coming out in the month ahead. I haven't actually read any of these. So many of them look inviting, and I know I can read only a few.

    I don't read a lot of contemporary or YA, so that narrows the field a bit. I'm pleased to see a slight uptick in the number of RS releases due. I've been looking forward to Killing Time, the start of a new series from Cindy Gerard, and I always like Cindy Dees' books.

    In historical, I keep eyeing Demon's Curse by Alexa Egan. I don't read a lot of shifter books, though, and that looks like one. So I'm wavering. But it also has a Waterloo angle, which I like.

    1. Thanks, Nancy. This list doesn't even cover them all!

  12. I am reading
    The Lady Most Willing… – Julia Quinn, Eloisa James, Connie Brockway, what is amazing to me is I can't tell who wrote what and though I love all the authors I really did think I would be able to tell which was which by their writing style but apparently not! LOL

    Looking forward to
    The Husband List – Janet Evanovich & Dorien Kelly
    Perfect Fit – Carly Phillips

    After reading the comments I can see I will have to add a few more to my tbr pile, which should be read as TBR Mountain

  14. I'm still catching up with lots of books, but I read The Lady Most Willing by Julia Quinn, Eloisa James and Connie Brockway, and it was brilliant!
    I'm really looking forward to Forever A Lord by Dleilah Marvelle and The Husband List by Janet Evanovich & Dorien Kelly. I've read lots of Janet Evanovich's books so I'm interested to see her style in a historical romance :)

  15. I'm afraid I haven't gotten to any January reads since I'm still reading last years lol. At some point I will give up and start anew lol. Historicals are always first on my list but I do slip in other genres because I like a bit of variety!

  16. Loved your suggestions list, but I'm so confused, there are son many amazing books to choose from. My choice would be: Forever a Lord and Seven nights in a Rogue's bed. I will start reading them soon! I always, add a book to my list "to read" ..

  17. Well, I wonder if I just should say the ones I am not looking forward to...but even that is none!
    I will try to read most.
    I read Lady Most Willing and I LOVED it.....unexpected pleasure in all three parts!
    I know I will need so much time because there are so many I am desperately waiting for in Feb and March too....

    AND I have started writing...this is getting interesting.

  19. Shades of Grey and Killing Time are on the top of my list. I love romantic suspense and MayaBanks and Cindy Gerard write the best books. but there are some small town contemporaries I am looking forward to as well. Looks like the beginning of a great reading year.

  27. I give up. I am never going to be current on anything I am reading. I am years behind on my TBR Mountain and keep adding to it. As usual, many of the historicals appeal and for a change, quite a few of the contemporaries.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm reading Linda Howard's right now. I'll also read Julia quinn's and Jennifer Ashley's new books.

  29. I am so excited for Jennifer Ashley's newest! *fangirling*
