A relatively small number this month. Probably a good thing, considering how many I got during February!
Books I'm definitely planning to get
Just the 3, but they're all books I'm looking forward to.
Along Came Trouble, by Ruthie Knox (Mar 11)
I loved Ruthie Knox's first 2 Loveswepts. Unlike those two, the plot description of this one doesn't particularly draw me to it (bodyguards, ex-military, tabloid press -meh), but I'm interested in seeing what Knox does with it. Plus, the idea of the series sounds like fun.
Lover At Last, by JR Ward (Mar 26)
I've gone a bit off Ward lately, and even though the couple featured in this one (Qhuinn and Blay) were the only two characters who interested me in the last few books, I don't much like where their story has been going. Still, gay romance front and centre a in mainstream, blockbuster romance series! I'll be reading it, and I hope it does well and opens some doors (especially since rumours are that whether Meljean Brook's Scarsdale book is traditionally published will depend on how this one does). ETA: Sorry, turns out that's not true, please see Meljean's comment below.
Books that interest me and I'll keep an eye on
A Most Improper Rumor, by Emma Wildes (Mar 5)
The series (Whispers of Scandal), seems to be about heroines who are caught up in different sorts of reputation- ending situations. In this case, the heroine is a suspected murderer who asks the hero to clear her name. Emma Wildes is an author I've been meaning to try, and this one might do.
An Inquiry Into Love and Death by Simone St. James (Mar 5)
I didn't adore St. James' The Haunting of Maddy Clare as much as everyone else seemed to, but it interested me enough to give her brand of creepy, eery ghost story another chance.
The Turncoat, by Donna Thorland (Mar 5)
I'm really not sure about this one, but I haven't read a romance set during the American Revolution for ages. Depending on reviews, this might do.
Dark Tide, by Elizabeth Haynes (Mar 12)
I really liked Haynes' Into The Darkest Corner, she does suspense well. Plus, a houseboat!
