New Releases for February

To many people, February is a special month because of Valentine’s Day. To me, it’s special because of my son’s birthday. And this year is even more special because he will be a teenager! I really can’t believe my little boy will be thirteen. Actually, I shouldn’t call him little as he is 6’1”. LOL! Anyway, February is also a great month for romance releases! So far this month I have read two wonderful books: The Temptation of Your Touch by Teresa Medeiros (read my review here) and The Dark Lady by Máire Claremont (my review will be posted next week). I am looking forward to curling up with One Good Earl Deserves a Lover by Sarah MacLean, Crystal Cove by Lisa Kleypas, and How to Entice an Earl by Manda Collins. 

Which February 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 March, happy reading!

  8. Andrea, I know what you are saying about your son turning 13. My daughter will be 13 in April and we are leaving the childhood years behind. Sad, but good, you know? Happy Birthday to your son. :)

    There are many authors/books on the list that I'm looking forward to reading. I never seem to catch up either, like Laurie G. Definitely want to get Teresa Medeiros', Anne Gracie's, and Manda Collins' books.

    1. I hear you, LSUReader! I have seriously cut back on my book buying (a sin, lol). I just don't have the time to read them all. I've been very selective in what I buy.

  11. What an incredible list of books! I wish I had two set of eyes this month as they would certainly come in very handy. I have not read any of them yet but am poised to grab as many as I can very soon. While they all look wonderful, I am really excited to read Karen Ranney's "The Lass Wore Black." Not only is Karen a fabulous author who has proven herself over the years, but she is a lovely lady and a very good friend of mine. It's so nice to have a good friend who is also a marvelous author. Three cheers for Karen!

    In addition, I'm looking forward to:

    The Good Daughter
    The Autumn Bride
    One Good Earl Deserves a Lover
    The Importance of Being Wicked
    The Typewriter Girl
    How to Entice an Earl
    The Impostor Bride

    And on and on it goes. February seems to be chock full with bunches of new releases. As it's my birthday month, I may have to treat myself very, very well! :-)
