2/9
The Gladiator's Temptation (Champions of Rome #2)

2/15
Getting Him Back (Ethan & Wyatt #1)
Getting Him Back (Ethan & Wyatt #1) by K.A. Mitchell (M/M contemporary)
The blurb of this book clicks all my buttons: one hero moving on from an ex, a grouchy fellow student, and a steamy tutoring date.

How the Cookie Crumbles (Bluewater Bay, #12)

Always ready to hang out in Bluewater Bay again!

2/16

Lady Bridget's Diary (Cavendish, #1)

I love the idea of a group of Americans inheriting a title plus this book has a girl next door theme.

Fighting Dirty (Ultimate, #4)
Fighting Dirty (Ultimate #4) by Lori Foster (contemporary romance)
I've been wanting to try Lori Foster for awhile since Quinn loves her books so this sounds like a good way to start.

Along Came a Rogue (The Secret Life of Scoundrels, #2)
Along Came a Rogue (The Secret Life of Scoundrels #2) by Anna Harrington (historical romance)
I liked Harrington's debut (Dukes Are Forever) so I am ready to see what else she can do plus it has a best friend's sibling plot!

  2. The Hunter and Fighting Dirty are the two books I am most looking forward to!! I honestly can't wait to see how I enjoy The Hunter, especially since the first book was so phenomenal.
