New Releases for February



It’s February! And it’s cold. And I don’t really like the cold. The only good thing about cold weather is being able to curl up under a blanket with a really great book. We're lucky to have so many to choose from this month! I’m currently reading a book with my daughter (The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau) and we are really enjoying it so far. We tore through the Hunger Games series and my daughter liked it so much, she wanted something similar. J As for romance, I’m really looking forward to reading Julia Quinn’s The Secrets of Sir Richard Kenworthy, Jaci Burton’s Quarterback Draw and Laura Lee Guhrke’s Catch a Falling Heiress.

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!

    The First Kiss – Grace Burrowes
    War of the Wives – Tamar Cohen

    The following are all on my TBR in digital or print formats:

    The Nightingale – Kristin Hannah
    If the Viscount Falls – Sabrina Jeffries
    This Old Homicide – Kate Carlisle
    Firelight at Mustang Ridge – Jesse Hayworth
    Rescue Me – Catherine Mann
    A Perfect Catch – Anna Sugden
    Sweet Surprise – Candis Terry



    Two that get my highest recommendation are not on your list: Rise by Karina Bliss, which is on my Best of 2015 list, and Megan Frampton’s delightful Valentine novella When Good Earls Go Bad. I’ve also been raving about Grace Burrowes’s first contemporary series, Sweetest Kisses. I’ve read not only The First Kiss, the new release, but also A Single Kiss, the first book, and Kiss Me Hello, a March 3 release, and loved them every one. I adore the Knightley brothers, although Mac, the hero of Book 3, may be my favorite. Fans of contemporary romance should definitely add this series to their must-read lists.

  8. Isn't it interesting that there are so many historical fiction stories out? How, exactly, do they differ from a historical romance? A historical perspective, but not much romance in the book is what I'm presuming?
    I look forward to reading JQ's book!

    1. Yes, Deb--historical fiction with little to no romance. Enjoy JQ's!!

  13. I loved Earls Just Want to Have Fun, by Shana Galen. It had great characters and lots of wit and warmth throughout. I think it's her best yet.

    From the rest of the list, I'm looking forward to reading the newest books by Quinn, Burrowes, and Robb. Thanks for the post.

  14. All the books looks great Earls just want to have fun

  15. I haven't read any of them - yet. I do have Grace Burrowe's book, but I'm trying to wait until all 3 in the series are out before reading them ( I"m weird that way especially when they are being release so close to each other.) Which ones do I want to read?? Pretty much all the historical and contemporaries, as well as quite a few of the paranormal and romantic suspense. :-)

  16. I have not ready any yet. Once more I go straight for the Historical reads.

    Burned by Karen Marie Moning
    In His Keeping by Maya Banks
    First Kiss by Grace Burrows
    A Memory of Violets by Hazel Gaynor
    Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
    Just to name a few. :)
