New Releases for February

My goodness, it is February already! I don’t know about you, but January flew by in our house. The snow/ice storm we had in Atlanta last week kept the kids home from school and we had a blast playing in the snow. What’s the weather like where you are?

In this type of weather I love to curl up under a blanket with a wonderful book. It’s a good thing we have so many to choose from in February! I’m currently reading Jaci Burton’s Melting the Ice and it is certainly hot enough to do just that! I’m looking forward to reading Tessa Dare’s series starter, Romancing the Duke, Once in a Lifetime by Jill Shalvis, Uninvited by Sophie Jordan, and Why Earls Fall in Love 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!

  3. Even before I read through the titles I fell in love with all of the gorgeous covers. WHY EARLS FALL IN LOVE tops my list.

  4. Haven't had time to read any of the Feb releases yet!
    Catherine Anderson's 'Walking on Air' is my top choice .... just bought the audio version.

    That icy weather in the US has distorted the jet stream so much that it is sucking deep depressions across the Atlantic and drenching the British Isles.
    If I could build an (Noah's) Ark, I could become immune from all the flooding here in the UK, pull the curtain and curl up with these latest releases, and blissfully ignore the dreadful weather! LOL

    2. I really enjoyed it. thought it start a little slow, but that may well have been just me as I was watching the super bowl at the time too ;) but it definitely picked up as I stayed up late to finish it that night (who needs a good nights rest for work when there's a book that must be finished).

  9. There are a number of books coming out on my birthday (Feb 25) that I think of as personal birthday gifts from the authors. Monica McCarty's new one (The Raider) and Lorraine Heath's newest. Swoons! Oh, what a delicious day that will be! Oh, and Thor 2 will be out which is also pre-ordered so it will be a GRAND birthday.

    1. LOL, Hellie! My son has a countdown for all his favorite movies--in theater and DVD. Thor 2 is one of them, of course. ;)

  10. So many great books again! I have read Tessa Dare's "Romancing the Duke" and Sharon Sala's, "The Curl up and Dye." Both are fantastic and left me giggling. Looking forward to reading Megan Mulry's "R is For Rebel." She is a great author. So many other Historical and Contemporary books are on my list and too long for me to write them all here.

    Living in southwest Florida, we usually have a mild winter. However, this past January was a real bear and very cold for us. I know that sounds really whiney for everything that our northern neighbors have been suffering thorough. Sure do hope that Punxatawney Phil was wrong in his prediction! Hurry up, spring!

  16. Hi, Andrea--

    Thanks for the shopping list! *g*

    Grace Burrowes, Jill Shalvis, Jillian Hunter, Sabrina Jeffries, Jesse Hayworth, Karen Rose, and my fellow bandita, Tawny Weber, are auto buys for me. Elizabeth Michels is in my chapter, and her book looks cool. I've enjoyed Vivian Arend's Adrenaline Search & Rescue series, so I'm picking up that one.

    I've read Winter at Mustang Ridge (Jesse Hayworth), and it was great. As usual, I'm behind on my reading, but I'll be getting to the others soon.
