I'm going to go bankrupt, so many books from autobuy authors, and just after Christmas, too!
Books I'm definitely planning to get
The Madness Underneath, by Maureen Johnson (Jan 2)
I loved the previous book, The Name of the Star, and this one sounds promising. No Ripper here, but Rory, with her newfound powers, gets involved with a string of unexplained murders in London.
The Other Side Of Us, by Sarah Mayberry (Jan 2)
To be perfectly honest, the plot summary is not one that would normally tempt me in the least. This is Sarah Mayberry, though, and whatever she writes, I will happily read.
Dream Eyes by Jayne Ann Krentz (Jan 8)
Still hanging in there with JAK, hoping for another great one. The last one I read did have a nice romance, and the blurb on this one goes on about “primal attraction”, which doesn’t sound very JAK-these-days, so I’ll hope against hope.
Be Mine by Jennifer Crusie, Victoria Dahl and Shannon Stacey (Jan 22)
I really disliked the one Shannon Stacey book I read, but I love Victoria Dahl and the Jennifer Crusie story, although already published, is one I haven’t read yet.
The Firebird, by Susanna Kearsley (Jan 28 in the UK)
Not technically on my wish list, as the wonderful Susanna Kearsley was kind enough to send me a review copy a couple of weeks ago, but I wanted to mention it, if only to remind UK-based readers that it's coming out. It’s wonderful, BTW.
A Woman Entangled, by Cecilia Grant (Jan 29)
A Lady Awakened was one of my favourite books of 2012, and it landed Cecilia Grant straight on my autobuy list. This one sounds great, too.
That Scandalous Summer, by Meredith Duran (Jan 29)
I love Duran’s writing, and the sound of this one. A belle of the ball heroine who’s secretly lonely, a scandalous hero... yum!
Crazy Thing Called Love, by Molly O’Keefe (Jan 29)
The plot sounds kind of meh to me, but I’m buying this just on the strength of O’Keefe’s Can’t Buy Me Love, which I loved (and which I really need to review soon).
Books that interest me and I'll keep an eye on reviews for
Show and Tell, by Kate McMurray (Jan 8)
I saw this one at the Dear Author promo thread for authors, and liked the sound of it. Reincarnated lovers, antiques, sold!
Unforgivable, by Joanna Chambers (Jan 15)
I’m not sure about this one. I liked Chambers’ The Lady’s Secret and want to read more by her, but I HATE stories where there’s a separation in which the hero whores around like mad and the heroine stays all nice and chaste. So I guess I’ll wait for reviews.
When She Said I Do, by Celeste Bradley (Jan 29)
I enjoyed Bradley’s The Pretender many years ago, but haven’t read her in ages. This Beauty and the Beast plot might tempt me to try her again.
