Coming Attractions


March is upon us which means Spring is just around the corner. Are you ready? I sure am!

Launching the month on Monday, March 1 is a review, excerpt, and giveaway of One Snowy Night by Patience Griffin. Stop by to discover why I gave this first book in Griffin's new Sweet Home, Alaska, contemporary romance series 5 stars. 

Wednesday, March 3 brings a review of another contemporary romance. This one, All Consuming by Jaci Burton, is the third book in a trilogy about three homeless boys rescued from a fire who were then adopted by their fireman rescuer and his social worker wife. Now grown men, and firemen themselves, these are the stories of their journeys to love. 

Thursday, March 4
brings Anabelle Bryant to the blog with a guest post about her upcoming historical romance novel: Duchess if you Dare. Don't miss this opportunity to learn the "story behind the story" of this new book that launches Bryant's Maidens of Mayhem series and enter for a chance to win a terrific giveaway package. 

Tracy Solheim joins us on Friday, March 5 with a guest post about her upcoming book, Just for Kicks. This football-themed, contemporary romance launches Solheim's new Milwaukee Growlers series. 

Join me on Tuesday, March 9, for my release day review of The Guardian by Kimberly Kincaid. This newest book in Kincaid's Intelligence Unit series is packed with steamy romance, breath-stealing suspense, and surprise twists I did not see coming.

On Monday, March 15, check in to read my review of Tracy Solheim's Just for Kicks.

The Less Than Zero rock stars are back on Thursday, March 18 with my review of Fearless by Kaylene Winter. This time, it's Connor and Ronni in the spotlight. I can't wait!

Friday, March 26 brings my review of Wilde Child, the newest book in Eloisa James' The Wildes of Lindow Castle, historical romance series. This time, it's theater-mad daughter, Joan's turn in the spotlight along with an unlikely hero who will be familiar to fans of the series. 

On Monday, March 29, stop by to read my review of Anabelle Bryant's Duchess If You Dare. I love stories that match an adventurous heroine with a prim and proper hero. So delicious!

Rounding out the month on Tuesday, March 30 will be my review of the newest Lorraine Heath historical romance. Scoundrel of My Heart launches the Once Upon a Dukedom series, featuring the brothers of Althea Stanwick, heroine of Heath's last book, Beauty Tempts the Beast.  

That's what's going on at the Dish this month. What's happening in your world? Any special activities planned? Books you're anticipating? Good books you're reading?

Have you lined up for your "Fauci Ouchie" yet? I'm scheduled for my second dose next week. One step closer to a return to normal life! :)

February was dedicated to de-cluttering around here and you know what that means. Four randomly chosen people who post a comment before 11:00 PM, March 3 will each receive a package of books from my stash. 

*Must be 18
*U.S. only


  1. They all sounds good can't thank you

  2. I'm currently reading the out of bounds series by Tracy solheim.... soooo good

  3. I got my first 'jab' & am scheduled for the second on St. Patrick's day. So glad things are moving along, really looking forward to seeing family in person, but that probably won't happen til they (and many more) are also vaccinted.
    I read JD Robb's newest Faithless in Death yesterday in about 10 hours - can't seem to put them down!

  4. Looking forward to Anabelle's Duchess if you Dare.

    Not eligible for my Fauci Ouchie, yet.


    1. This is one of those times when I don't mind being old. ;-)

  5. I'm reading Darynda Jones Betwixt & Between series; this is a really fun series quirky characters. I'm scheduled for my first shot on 3/16. This month has a a lot of good books that I'm looking forward to reading.

  6. Thanks so much for the previews. A couple of the books are books I look forward to reading. I am not a good candidate for the vaccine.

    I hope everyone is staying well.

  7. I'm currently reading Book 6 of the Kaitlyn and the Highlander series. I've had both of my Moderna shots. The upcoming new historical romance books look good.

    1. There are some great books coming out this spring!

  8. Loved, loved, loved Tracy's and Kimberly's books!! I would love to read Eloisa's & Lorraine's. I get my second dose on Friday. Hubby gets his in 2 weeks. Then maybe we can fly to see older son. Take care PJ!!

  9. The snow has been thawing and I am grateful. My husband and I signed onto the county website to alert us when we are allowed to come in for the vaccine. We expect that our turns will likely come later because we are not essential workers and our ages are higher but not within the category for current availability. I giggled at the term you use above of, The Fauci Ouchie. As for reading, I'm continuing with the last Sarah MacLean Bareknuckle Bastards book, Daring and the Duke.

  10. Still waiting until its my turn for the vaccine.....I just read To Catch A Dream by Audrey Carlan and loved it! Meant to Be by Jude Deveraux is up next! Enjoy the rest of your week PJ!🤗💜

  11. Another good line-up for the month. You have two of my favorite historical authors. I enjoy Patience Griffin's books and quilting. ALL CONSUMING sounds like part of a series I should be reading.
    I get my second COVID vaccination Tuesday, the 9th. My husband got his second one a month ago. They were giving them at the VA hospital as vets came in for appointments. Just before he got his second shot, they opened them to those of us who volunteer at the hospital. It will help them get back to normal sooner. Even with a compromised immune system and being 74, it would still be another month or so before I could get it in this state.
    They had to cancel an author/reader conference I was attending last year. They canceled our condo reservations but we had to rebook and travel by the end of March or lose what we paid. So we are going to Orland, Florida. Neither one of Usa is comfortable with it, but he hasn't seen his family in almost 2 years. They have been vaccinated so that won't be too bad. The rest of the time, we will be hiking and staying far away from people. We have a kitchen, so no problem with having to eat out.
    I have been working on decluttering also. I have a box of books and magazines to send to the VA hospital. It has been nice locating things I ha vent been able to find. It will be so nice when we can get back to volunteering and having family over to the house for a meal. I hope the majority of people do get the vaccination. We all need it desperately.

  12. My husband & I get my 2 our shots 3rd wk in March. You have a lot of interesting books listed here. No special activities planned. Just finished The Art of Racing in the Rain - good read, but needed a lot of tissues. Looking forward to Jessica Lemmon's 2nd Billioinaire book coming out end of this month.

  13. SO many great books coming out! I'm scheduled for my first shot later this month courtesy of my asthma being severe enough to warrant it. I'm thrilled that my daughter who has a blood clotting immune disorder will fimally get her first shot too. Also very happy that my dad & step mom and in-laws have all received their 1st shot. Lots of organizing planned.

  14. I got both dose 1 & 2 awhile ago, needed to get for my job. Look forward to the Solheim books and love to hear about any new suspense books coming out. Nothing special planned except upcoming Easter celebraton next month. Thanks for the chance to win a surprise pack of books, always exciting to see what may be in the package. Be safe.

  15. I get my second shot today - yay. I've been reading a lot more last year and this year and mixing it up too. Looking forward to spring coming too.

  16. I got my first shot awhile ago and having a problem trying to shedule 2nd one as they only let you schedule a few days before you are due an am not due til about 2 wks.

    Am looking forward to One Snowy Night - sounds good. Nothing really exciting going on.

  17. I'm reading A Rogue to Ruin by Darcy Burke, #3 The Untouchables: The Pretenders series and very good so far. Have the latest Stephanie Laurens book on pre-order to be received around the 18th and can't wait for that one. I just received my 2nd covid shot on the 3rd so I'm set on that. Still wearing masks when leaving my apartment and looks like that will stay with us for a while longer.

    Everyone stay healthy and enjoy this spring weather we're having right now.
