August is looking pretty good, with a couple of my favourite authors releasing much-anticipated books.
Will definitely read
Guardian Demon, by Meljean Brook (Aug 6)
My most anticipated book of the last few years. It technically shouldn’t be here, since I’ve already read it (I loved it, the review will be up right after the release date). I couldn’t leave it out, though.
Here Without You, by Tammara Webber (Aug 6)
Here Without You continues the story in a book I really liked, Good For You. This was originally amongst the books below, those I wanted to read a few reviews for before I made up my mind, since some of what is in the blurb made me fear Webber was going to take their supposed HEA in a direction I didn't want to see. However, Jane from Dear Author has assuaged some of those fears, so I'm definitely reading it.
Deception Cove, by Jayne Castle (Aug 27)
JAK's books have ranged from blah to good-ish for the last few years, but I still haven't managed to cut the cord. Also, it might be wishful thinking, but the past couple of books have seemed to be getting better on the romance side and not putting so much emphasis on the tedious paranormal aspects.
The Arrangement, by Mary Balogh (Aug 27)
Balogh has been on my autobuy list forever, and I liked the first book in the series. I'm hoping she's been cured of her extreme seriesitis, though.
Into The Light, by Meljean Brook (possibly Aug 30)
This is a novella in the Guardian series. In the page I link to above, Brook explains that it is basically a subplot she had to cut out of Guardian Demon when it got too long. I love that this is coming out, as much as I adored GD, it made me really sad to think there'd be no more Guardians books.
Books I'm interested in. Will keep an eye out for reviews
The Double Cross by Carla Kelly (Aug 1)
I love Carla Kelly’s writing, and the history in this one sounds fascinating, but I want to see whether it’s an inspirational before I decide to buy.
Omens, by Kelley Armstrong (Aug 20)
I read and enjoyed several of Armstrong's Otherworld books. This one seems to be a new series, and I'm not sure whether it's paranormal or not. Either way, it sounds interesting. I'm intrigued by the setup of the heroine investigating an old murder, one that her birth parents are supposed to have committed.
The Lotus Palace, by Jeannie Lin (Aug 27)
I've been meaning to try Jeannie Lin for a while, and I really like the sound of both the setting and the plot. The author's note (which you can see on the amazon page) sold me on it.
