The lazy days of Summer are upon us and here in North Carolina, the temperatures are definitely living up to their reputation. We've been flirting with 100 degrees of high humidity all week. It's the perfect time to relax in air-conditioned comfort and indulge in a good book...or meet a new author! Hope you'll join us for the fun events happening here at The Romance Dish in August.
We kick things off Monday, August 1 with Delores Fossen and Harlequin's Ultimate Western Blog Tour. I recently discovered Fossen when I reviewed Lone Star Nights, the second book in her McCord Brothers contemporary romance series from HQN. I'm looking forward to more McCord Brothers stories from this talented author!
On Wednesday, August 3, we'll host the Megan Frampton Why Do Dukes Fall in Love? tour with a review by Janga. This historical romance, released July 26, is the newest installment in Frampton's Dukes Behaving Badly series.
Katie Ruggle's Gone Too Deep tour stops at the Dish on Thursday, August 4 with a Q&A. Releasing August 2, Gone Too Deep is the third of four books in Ruggle's compelling new Search and Rescue romantic suspense series and has one of the best OMG! twists of any series book I've read.
Wednesday, August 10 brings the Vivienne Lorret tour to the Dish with an excerpt from This Earl is On Fire. The August 2 release from Avon Impulse is the second book in Lorret's The Season's Original historical romance series.
Janga returns with her On Second Thought review on Monday, August 15.
Contemporary romance author Heather McGovern celebrates her debut release day, Tuesday, August 16 with a guest post and Q&A. McGovern's debut, A Moment of Bliss, set in a family-run inn in the beautiful Western North Carolina mountains, kicks off her Honeywilde series.
Thursday, August 18 brings the Bronwen Evans A Taste of Seduction tour to the Dish with an excerpt from the August 16th release. This will be the fifth book in Evans' The Disgraced Lords historical romance series.
Historical romance author Vanessa Kelly will be guest blogging with us on Tuesday, August 30. Kelly's next book, My Fair Princess (out 8/30) introduces her new The Improper Princesses trilogy, an offshoot of her popular Renegade Royals series. As much as I enjoyed her Renegades, I love this first Princess story even more!
We'll bring the month to a close on Wednesday, August 31 with a Q&A with historical romance author Karen Hawkins. Hawkins' next book, Mad for the Plaid (out 8/30) is the third book in her The Oxenburg Princes series. I'm mad for both the Plaid and Hawkins' superb storytelling skills!
