New Releases for June

I’m back from a lovely vacation in Boston. What a wonderful city that is so rich in history! We had a really great time. We also have a great time celebrating birthdays in my family. I don’t usually talk about my birthdays, but tomorrow is a milestone one for me: it is my 40th birthday. I have no plans other than to spend it with my family. J Do you have any favorite birthday memories? If so, I’d love to hear about them.

It’s also time for the June releases! I haven’t read any June books yet (too many things going on), but there are several I’m looking forward to reading: The Once and Future Duchess by Sophia Nash, Tease by Sophie Jordan, and Stormy Persuasion by Johanna Lindsey.

Which June 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 July, happy reading!
