Not many this month. I had only a couple on this until I had a look at the Open Thread for Authors at Dear Author!
Books I'm definitely planning to get
It Happened One Wedding, by Julie James (May 6)
James is an autobuy. I don’t even bother to check what her new book is about any longer.
Otherwise Engaged, by Amanda Quick (May 7)
3rd in the Ladies of Lantern Street, apparently not a paranormal, so I will definitely be reading this!
Books that interest me and I'll keep an eye on
To Charm a Naughty Countess, by Theresa Romain (May 6)
The author describes this as "a Pygmalion story with an virgin hero and a rakish heroine". Sold!
How to Rope a Real Man, by Melissa Cutler (May 6)
The author’s description sounds like fun, and I’ve never seen a Jewish cowboy hero!
Laugh, by Mary Ann Rivers (May 6)
There's nothing really in the summary that would normally make me pick up a book, but I've heard good things about this author and have been meaning to try one of her books.
If I Stay, by Tamara Morgan (May 12)
What attracted me to this one were the hints of Libby’s London Merchant in the description. The heroine is the nanny at the large home of a wealthy family. She’s in love with the son of the family, but it appears the hero is actually the chauffeur.
Mark of Cain, by Kate Sherwood (May 20)
This is m/m romance and the author’s description sounded really interesting. It’s about an Anglican priest whose brother was killed a few years ago, and the man who killed him. The author mentions that it explores the issues of repentance and forgiveness. Sounds pretty heavy, but I'm interested.
