Here are some of my favorite books I’m currently reading and loving. Hope you will, too.
Hush. A romantic suspense novella from award winning author Carey Baldwin.
Even in London society–where everyone knows what you did last season–you never know who’s next in line to walk down the aisle…
TRUE LOVE IS OFTEN FOUND
With her whirlwind social life in London, Lady Isabella Wharton has little interest in the customs of the country. But when her godmother asks her to pay a visit to her bachelor grandson in Yorkshire, Isabella can’t refuse. It behooves her to please the old dowager, since she harbors one of Isabella’s most scandalous secrets. So off she goes to see the newly-titled–and notoriously rustic–Duke of Ormond…
WHERE YOU LEAST EXPECT IT
Trevor Carey doesn’t care about what goes on behind ballroom doors. He is content with the simple life–and isn’t ashamed to admit it to a society flirt like Lady Isabella. But the country air brings out a different side of Isabella–one full of longing and passion. Can her sophistication be hiding a desire for love? When a blackmailer from the city arrives to threaten Isabella, Trevor will shield her from harm–even travel to London. Can the duke tackle the ton on Isabella’s behalf …and manage to keep her all to himself?
Ashes, Ashes, They All Fall Dead (Coming September 10th!)* by Lena Diaz
If you liked Allison Brennan’s Prey, Hunt, Kill series,
you’ll love Lena Diaz’s Nursery Rhyme Series.
This nursery rhyme, will keep you awake…
One by one the letters arrive at the FBI office in Savannah, Georgia. Inside, each bears a name–victims of a twisted crime–and the sing-song phrase . . . Ashes, ashes, they all fall dead. Special Agent Tessa James becomes obsessed with finding the killer whose victims are crying out to her for justice.
When sexy, brilliant consultant, Matt Buchanan, is paired with Tessa to discover who’s sending the “Ashes” letters, he discovers a serial arsonist is leaving nothing but murder in his wake. Inexplicably, the clues point to Tessa herself, forcing her to realize if she can’t remember the forgotten years of her past, the name on the next letter will be hers.
*(I saw an advanced copy of this book and can tell you it is great!)
Under His Nose by Candice Gilmer
All it takes is faith, trust, and fairy dust. A swift kick never hurts, either.
Christy is due for retirement from her fairy godmother gig, but she agrees to take one last case. Helping Roark Turner find his perfect girl shouldn’t be much of a challenge–after all, she is a veteran fairy godmother.
What makes this case interesting? She must use as little magic as possible to bring Roark his much-desired Happily Ever After.
Now Christy must use every skill at her command–just not her magic–to thwart Cupid’s meddling and get Roark and his perfect match Stephanie together without changing their free will or ruining her perfect record. Or she’ll never get her own Happily Ever After.
She’s being stalked…
After struggling to recover from a career-crippling mistake, archaeologist Libby Maitland has landed the project of her dreams–a data recovery excavation in a picturesque, historic sawmill town. Tasked with digging up secrets of the town’s founding family, Libby soon learns that nothing in Coho, Washington, is as idyllic as it seems.
She’s barely settled into her new home when suspicious events make her believe she’s being stalked…
Or maybe she’s losing her mind.
Coho Police Chief Mark Colby can’t decide if Libby is crazy or if she has her own twisted agenda, but the deeper he delves into her past, the more intrigued he becomes. Even as he and Libby grow closer, he can’t quite let his initial suspicion go.
When Libby’s life is threatened, they must work together to determine if the truth about her stalker is buried in her past, or if the answers can be found in the layers of the excavation.
Body of Evidence by Rachel Grant
“Top-notch page turner! The perfect mix of suspense and romance.” – Jill Barnett, New York Times bestselling author
