Make Your Reservations

Mark your calendars and make your reservations for these upcoming May releases!

Nothing But Trouble by Rachel Gibson

Trouble . . .

Chelsea Ross's acting career has been a total bust. The closest she ever came to stardom was her brilliant performance as "Pretty Dead Girl #1." But leaving Hollywood to become the personal assistant to a famous hockey player could be her stupidest career move ever.

More trouble . . .

Injured superstar Mark Bressler's glory days are over. The bad-boy ex-jock could at least be civil to the pint-sized, pink-haired bombshell who the Seattle Chinooks hired to be his P.A. If Chelsea didn't need the money, she'd be running from the world's biggest jerk as fast as her feet could carry her.

Big trouble!

Chelsea can deal with Mark's rotten attitude and dark moods. The problem is those biceps and that red-hot bod! And when the bad boy starts to put the moves on her, Chelsea knows it's time she banished him to the penalty box . . . if only she could resist the kind of trouble he has in mind!


Sweetest Little Sin by Christine Wells

A Marquis’ Betrayal

Lady Louisa Brooke has many suitors, but the only man for her is the wild and ruthless Marquis of Jardine. When Jardine suddenly abandons her after a long-standing liaison, he leaves her with nothing except the secret they share. Her future in ruins, Louisa recklessly accepts a mission from the head of the secret service and becomes embroiled in a perilous operation in which nothing is as it seems...

A Lady’s Revenge

The Marquis of Jardine is determined to destroy the criminal mastermind who’s sworn vengeance against all he holds dear. But when he hears that Louisa is to wed a dangerous enemy, Jardine is tortured by jealousy and fear for her safety. He tracks her down, only to discover that her mission collides with his.

A Love that Won’t Be Denied

Together, Louisa and Jardine must now foil a plan to betray the secret service and escape a diabolical revenge. But can they put the past behind them, and take the greatest risk of all—on love?


Line of Fire by Jo Davis

To his fellow firemen, Tommy Skyler has it all. But the golden boy of Station Five hides a private pain. He was once a star quarterback until tragedy derailed his dream. Since then, he's struggled with his choices-including his decision to become a firefighter. His one ray of light shines in beautiful nurse Shea Ford. When a dangerous rescue lands Tommy in the ER, what better opportunity to win her over? But when a conspiracy culminates in deadly arson, Tommy realizes that a ruthless enemy is closing in, threatening to destroy the couple's love--and their lives.


A Lady's Guide to Improper Behavior by Suzanne Enoch

The Rules:

A lady should always make polite conversation . . .

Theresa Weller understands the rules of decorum, and is appalled when Colonel Bartholomew James disrupts a perfectly civilized dinner. This rude, insensitive man is the complete opposite of everything a gentleman should be—but with one searing kiss, Tess can think of no one else.

A lady should never lose her temper . . .

Aggravated beyond bearing by a man who speaks his mind, Tess wishes there was a guide to men like Bartholomew. Surely, with such an assortment of handsome, polite suitors to choose from, Tess should not ache for him.

And a lady should never pursue a gentleman.

She invites him on carriage rides and dares him to dance, and almost makes him want to return to Society. Bartholomew knows Tess wants to be seen as a proper miss, but deep down, he knows she is precisely the sort to spark his desire . . . A most improper lady.


Savor the Moment by Nora Roberts

Wedding baker Laurel McBane is surrounded by romance working at Vows wedding planning company with her best friends Parker, Emma, and Mac. But she's too low-key to appreciate all the luxuries that their clients seem to long for. What she does appreciate is a strong, intelligent man, a man just like Parker's older brother Delaney, on whom she's had a mega-crush since childhood.

But some infatuations last longer than others, and Laurel is convinced that the Ivy League lawyer is still out of her reach. Plus, Del is too protective of Laurel to ever cross the line with her-or so she thinks. When Laurel's quicksilver moods get the better of her-leading to an angry, hot, all-together mind-blowing kiss with Del-she'll have to quiet the doubts in her mind to turn a moment of passion into forever...


  1. Ooooo only good books in april !!!

  2. Oh yeah, that is what I am talking about. I have been waiting for these books. :::Dianna happily squeezing more room out of her keeper shelves::::

  3. I got lucky and landed the ARC for Rachel Gibson's, NOTHING BUT TROUBLE. Loved it! Read it in one day. Both characters are likable and real. Lots of chemistry.

  4. May is a great month for romance. I have 17 books on my TBB list, including four of your five, Andrea.

    I'm especially excited about the first May releases on my list (April 27, to be exact):Chasing Perfect by Susan Mallery, Never Less Than a Lady by Mary Jo Putney, Mistress by Mistake by Maggie Robinson (Yay for Maggie's debut!), and Hannah’s List by Debbie Macomber.

    Then on May 4, there's Sex and the Single Earl by Vanessa Kelly. I read a draft of this one and loved it.

    And I can hardly wait for May 25 and the first book in Tessa Dare's new Stud Club trilogy, One Dance with a Duke, and Lisa Kleypas' long awaited Married by Morning.

    For June, I have 21 books on my must-read list. :)

  5. I simply adore the cover for Suzanne Enoch's! And Christine Wells's is super sexy!

    Oh, Janga, I'm pretty sure (positive) that Lisa K's upcoming will be on my list for June. It's the one book I'm most anticipating all year!!

  6. Andrea, Married by Morning is on lots of lists for June, but the actual release date, according to Amazon at least, is May 25. If I can get it in my hands in May, I count it as a May book. :)

  7. LOL, Janga! Makes the wait time seem less, doesn't it?

  8. Wow, looks at all the beautiful covers!!! I have to say that I am really liking Suzanne Enoch's cover. And the one for Christine's is fabulous too.

  9. I see a few there I wouldn't mind reading. Doubt I'll make it through all those I just had to have in March and so far this month.

  10. Looking forward to Suzanne Enoch's book!! :)
