Coming Attractions


It's hard to believe but this crazy year is already half over. My travel plans have all been cancelled and I'm pretty much living my life as a hermit these days but, at least, there have been some amazing books to keep me company while I isolate. And, the rest of the summer looks to be filled with more great titles. Here's what's on the schedule for July here at The Romance Dish.

Wednesday, July 1
kicks off the month with a tour review of Virginia Heath's The Scoundrel's Bartered Bride. This Harlequin Historical romance is a cross-class tale of redemption and second chances. 


Thursday, July 2 brings a review of The Footman and I by Valerie Bowman. This historical romance launches Bowman's new The Footman's Club series. 


Stop by Friday, July 3 to read my review of Christina Britton's newest historical romance, A Good Duke is Hard to Find. This book launches Britton's Isle of Synne series.


On Monday, July 6, I'll be sharing my thoughts about Rough Creek by Kaki Warner. This book marks Warner's transition to contemporary western romance and launches her Brides of Rough Creek Texas series. 

Tuesday, July 7
brings a review of Daring and the Duke, the stunning third and final book in Sarah MacLean's Bareknuckle Bastards trilogy. 


The charming The Best Man Plan launches Jaci Burton's Boots and Bouquets contemporary romance series and is the subject of my WednesdayJuly 8 review. 

Stop by Thursday, July 9 for the cover reveal of The Marriage Pass by Briana Cole. This African American women's fiction thriller is scheduled to be released February 23, 2021.

Tuesday, July 14
, drop by for my review of Just Make Believe and a Q&A with its author, Maggie Robinson. I'm excited to read this third installment in Robinson's madcap, 1920's, murder-mystery series. 


Friday, July 17, I'll be sharing my thoughts about Paris is Always a Good Idea. This contemporary women's fiction novel by Jenn McKinlay is scheduled for a July 21 release. 

Stop by to read my review of Sunshine on Silver Lake on Monday, July 20. This heartwarming fifth book in Annie Rains' Sweetwater Springs series will be released July 21. 


Thursday, July 23 brings an excerpt of Duke Looks Like a Groomsman by Valerie Bowman. This is the second book in Bowman's new The Footmen's Club, historical romance series about three titled gentlemen posing as servants and finding love in the process. 

On Monday, July 27, I'll be sharing an excerpt of The Ultimate Betrayal. This third novel in Kat Martin's Maximum Security, romantic suspense series will be released on July 28. 

That's what's on the schedule here at The Romance Dish this month. What are you looking forward to in July?

  1. I can't believe the year's half over; on the other hand, it's only been half a year?! Looking forward to Virginia's newest, PJ!!

    1. LOL! I know what you mean, Fedora. Didn't April last about eight weeks on its own?

  2. I'm looking forward to the Historical ones, and hope that Valerie's book will be available in print.

  3. Sunshine on Silver Lake, The Best Man Plan from your list and any contemp romance books coming out soon.
    A surprise pack of books is fun.

  4. Is it July already? I've been reading a lot of contemporary romances lately, so am ready for a historical with some humor & adventure.

  5. I went crazy and book a mini vacation to Cape Cod. After all the time indoors, I need it to keep my wits about me. So I'm looking forward to that this month

  6. I am looking forward to a good amount of warm days and new books on my list that are coming out.

  7. This comment has been removed by the author.

  8. I'm looking forward to What You Wish For by Katherine Center, Heart Bones by Colleen Hoover, Sunrise Ranch by Carolyn Brown, and The Lost and Found Bookshop by Susan Wiggs

  9. I already had the first book in the footmen series by Valerie Bowman, just ordered the next two, the premise sounds terrific. You are going to be reviewing some really terrific books for us. Thank you.

    The year is half over and if feels as though I have lost so many months. I know I am not the only one who feels this way. That is what keeps me from running screaming through the streets...actually I am more able to limp quietly through the streets...but you get my drift.

    One thing that keeps me cheerful, I believe this is a time when we can make our world a better place.

    I hope that everyone is taking care and staying safe.

  10. I am looking forward to more family time, accomplishing some projects around the house, and reading of course. The new Valerie Bowman series has caught my eye. Titled gentlemen posing as servants sounds like a lot of fun.

  11. I am looking forward to my son's visit this weekend. Today is his 26th birthday so we'll be doing a late celebration.

    Bookwise: I have Valerie Bowman's trilogy on preorder (except for The Footman and I which is already on my ereader). I've also got Sarah MacLean's Daring and the Duke; Joanna Shupe's The Devil of Downtown; Caroline Linden's About a Rogue; and Anna Campbell's The Highlander's Forbidden Mistress. I was seriously conflicted over which to read first so I decided to read in the order they showed up on my Kindle app. Totally not making a decision, but it'll work. :-)

  12. I am looking forward to What You Wish For by Katherine Center and A Walk Along the Beach by Debbie Macomber.

  13. The library in my area has opened up for curbside pick up of holds. Am really looking forward to getting some of those books into my hot little hands!

  14. What a great selection for this month. There is something to appeal to everyone. As usual you have some great historicals. You also have some of my favorite contemporary authors - Kat Martin, Kaki Warner, and Jaci Burton. In the non-book area, I want to finally finish my poor neglected flower beds. They were overrun with vines and weeds. I have spent weeks trying to dig them out (one is 100 feet long and I am barely anywhere with that one) and am finally able to plant some of them. I hope to have all but the big one weeded and planted this week. I already have to reweed the two beds I did get planted. It will be so nice to sit on the porch and enjoy them.

  15. Some great books listed here! I'm looking forward to A Bad Day for Sunshine by Darynda Jones.

  16. Lots of good books being released this month!! Looking forward to a number of them. My son was just joking about his plans for 2020 were kaput - travel more and be outside. Thanks for the chance PJ.

  17. Lots of good books coming out. Looking forward to the Jaci Burton book.

  18. Aside from the book by Christina Britton, I'm also looking forward to The Duke Looks Like a Groomsman from Valerie Bowman and Daring and the Duke by Sarah MacLean. That is a really good series too.
