June is just around the corner and, with it, comes long. sunny days filled with summer fun and terrific books. Here's what we have on the schedule here at The Romance Dish for the month of June.
We kick things off Thursday, June 1 with Janga's review of Merely a Marriage, the final book written by romance legend, Jo Beverley. If you haven't yet, be sure to read the tribute, Remembering Jo Beverley, posted here May 24.
Join us Friday, June 2 when we'll share an excerpt from Duke with Benefits, the upcoming historical romance by Manda Collins. This second book in Collins' Studies in Scandal series, featuring brilliant mathematician (but socially inept), Lady Daphne, the dreamy Duke of Maitland, and a very clever mystery, will be released June 27.
On Saturday, June 3 we'll be sharing an excerpt and giving away a print ARC (advance reader copy) of The Pleasures of Passion by Sabrina Jeffries. This fourth book in Jeffries' Sinful Suitors series features a second-chance romance that is sure to delight. This is your chance to read it three weeks before everyone else!
Thursday, June 8, we welcome the Debbie Mason Primrose Lane excerpt tour. Stop by for a sneak peek at this newest contemporary romance in Mason's Harmony Harbor series. I've fallen in love with these wonderful stories!
