September is on the horizon (wow, how did that happen?) and it's bringing a whole lot of great books with it. It's also bringing plenty of fun to The Romance Dish! Here's what's on the schedule for September.
We kick things off Tuesday, September 1 with a review of Jayci Lee's Secret Crush Seduction. This second book in Lee's The Heirs of Hansol series for Harlequin Desire is a friends-to-lovers story, centered within a Korean-American family and their fashion empire. It's sexy, emotional, and hard to put down.
Wednesday, September 2, brings a review of Trust Fund Fiancé by Naima Simone. Also a Harlequin Desire, this 4th book in the multi-author, Texas Cattleman's Club, Rags to Riches series can be enjoyed on its own. In fact, I've already enjoyed this marriage-of-convenience, friends-to-lovers story twice, and probably will do so again.
Stop by Thursday, September 3, for a review of Like Lovers Do by Tracey Livesay. The second book in Livesay's Girls Trip series, this one is a sexy, sassy, heart-tugging, friends-to-lovers romance I couldn't put down.
On Tuesday, September 8, join us for Nancy's tour review of Road Out of Winter by Alison Stine. This dystopian novel releases on September 1.
Honeysuckle Season by Mary Ellen Taylor will be in my review spotlight on Thursday, September 10. Stop by to read my thoughts about this new contemporary fiction novel about "profound loss, hard truths, and an overgrown greenhouse full of old secrets."
Stop by Monday, September 14 for my tour review of The Bachelor Duke by Cecilia Rene and a Q&A with the author. This is my first book by this author but the lure of a hero who has vowed never to marry and a curvy heroine who is the opposite of what society deems fashionable was too much to resist.
On Friday, September 18, I'll be sharing my thoughts about The Prince Who Loved Me, the third book in Abigail Sharpe's humorous and heartwarming contemporary romance series. I've enjoyed the first two books in this series and am looking forward to Brandi and Sebastien's story.
Tuesday, September 22 brings a tour review of Beyond Power by Connie Mann. The description of this second book in Mann's Florida Wildlife Warriors series calls it a "slow-burn sultry romantic suspense set in Florida's untamed wilderness filled with mystery, action and adventure."
Don't miss the fun on Thursday, September 24 when I welcome Lenora Bell for a Q&A about her upcoming historical romance, Love is a Rogue, as well as an excerpt from the book. This first book in Bell's new Wallflowers vs Rogues series is an absolute delight. Fans of Bell's last book, One Fine Duke, will no doubt be excited to discover that Beatrice, the duke's bookish sister, is the heroine of Love is a Rogue and her cross-class hero is a dream.
Nancy Northcott and Jeanne Adams join us Friday, September 25 for a look inside the creation of Caynham Castle, the site of their multi-author anthologies: Christmas at Caynham Castle and the upcoming Trick or Treat at Caynham Castle.
Join us Tuesday, September 29 for another tour review when Santa shares her thoughts about A Tail for Two by Mara Wells. Put a dog on the cover of a book and I'm there!
That's it for the schedule as it currently stands. I have more books in my review queue though so I'll be adding new reviews to the schedule as they are ready. Periodically check this post for updates throughout the month. You can easily do that by clicking on the link in the right sidebar.
What are you looking forward to in September? Cooler temps? Colored leaves? New television shows? Fall sports? (I'm still in a wait and see mode regarding sports)
