Not that many for December, I think publishers are saving them till January. Just wait till you see the monumental list I'll have for that month!
Books I'm definitely planning to get
Body Heat, by Susan Fox (Nov 27)
Yes, this is a November release, but I missed it in my wish list last month and I wanted to highlight it, since I absolutely loved Susan Fox's latest series. Sounds like a good girl / bad boy romance, and a younger bad boy, as well! I wonder what a "chickened past" is, though!
The Lady of Secrets, by Susan Carroll (Dec 11)
Susan Carroll hasn't had a book out in a few years, and I've loved all of her books that I've read, especially the Faire Isle series, of which this is part.
Your Wicked Heart by Meredith Duran (Dec 10)
One of those novellas published to introduce a new series. I'm not sure I'm crazy about the idea, in general, but this is one that I would buy regardless. Long journeys onboard a ship, people pretending to be someone they're not... I like. Duran mentions on her website that the story turned out a bit different from the official cover copy. I hope not too much, because this sounds interesting!
A Kiss For Midwinter, by Courtney Milan (Dec 15)
Autobuy author. Hopefully this will actually come out the, unlike The Duchess War, which has featured in my October and November wish lists, and I'm still waiting on! Eh, well, two Milan books in one month is a nice Christmas present!
The Italian, by Lisa Marie Rice (Dec 19)
My favourite LMR books, and the ones I reread over and over, were the ones she published with Ellora's Cave. This sounds like it could be more like those than what she's been writing lately. Can't wait!
Books that interest me and I'll keep an eye on reviews for
Love In The Afternoon, by Alison Packard (Dec 17)
The hero and heroine are actors on a daytime soap! I’ve had a soft spot for that as a setting since Kathleen Gilles Seidel’s Again.
Always and Forever, by Farrah Rochon (Dec 18)
The plot (hero beats the heroine in the purchase of a house that has been in her home for generations and hires her to help restore it) doesn’t make me feel desperate to read it, but I really liked the one book I read by Rochon, and I’ve been meaning to try her again.
Unbound, by Susan Donovan and Celeste Bradley (Dec 24)
Hmm...I’ve enjoyed both authors, and the plot of having a modern-day character discover the diary of someone in the past, and intertwining the stories, is one that really appeals to me. However, the words “modern girl’s guide to finding love and empowerment” make me want to run in the opposite direction! We’ll see.
Shadow Woman, by Linda Howard (Dec 26)
File this under “only if it gets brilliant reviews from romance readers”. It doesn’t sound great, but I live in hope.
