New Releases for March

It’s a new month which means it’s time for the list of New Releases! March looks to be a great month for reading. So far I’ve read three March releases and loved them all. A Rogue by Any Other Name by Sarah MacLean has a yummy bad boy hero—check out my review here. Taking a Shot by Jaci Burton features a sexy hockey hero and is hot, Hot, HOT! Between the Duke and the Deep Blue Sea by Sophia Nash is a terrific book that I can’t say enough good things about. Look for my review next week! I can’t wait to get my hands on Lisa Kleypas’s newest, Rainshadow Road, along with Jill Shalvis’s Time Out, Katharine Ashe’s When a Scot Loves a Lady and Maya Rodale’s The Tattooed Duke.

Which March 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!

    1. You have a lot of great reading ahead of you, Barbara. I just finished Rainshadow Road...I laughed, I was fantastic!

  14. I haven't read any of these yet. I am still trying to catch up with all the great books that came out months ago. I'd like to read Janet Chapman's new one, SPELLBOUND FALLS. Any and all of the Historicals would be great. I can see my TBR mountain growing. What a nice problem to have.

  15. Of course I head straight for the Historical list. Another great month.

  16. So many books, so little time.....

  17. So many good books this month! I've read Assassins in Love and it was fun! Really recommend it. I'm very much looking forward to Nightborn, Oracle's Moon,Illuminate and of course Sarah Maclean and Sophia Nash!

  18. What an awesome list of must read books Andrea! I have added some 'more' books to my growing list!

    I'm still trying to finish February's list...geez..this Leap Year didn't have enough days for me! LOL!

    I love to read the historical romance books mainly.
    I really need to try out other genres, some of those comtemps caught my eye.

    Quick question Andrea ~ can you recommend any gothic historical romance authors? I really would like to read some more of those.

  19. I just won "A Rogue By Any Other Name" by Sarah McLean so have one down and about 15 to go. Just so many great new releases and my tbr pile is getting so tall I will have to make another stack. Thank goodness my Kindle has lots and lots of books but all in one little stack. lol I read historicals, contemporary and romantic suspense so lots of books to read.
