Where I feature new releases that grabbed my attention in the upcoming month. As always, release dates are subject to change. All titles link back to Goodreads.
Four Weddings and a Sixpence: An Anthology by Julia Quinn, Elizabeth Boyle, Laura Lee Guhrke, Stefanie Sloane (historical romance) -- December 27, 2016
Connected novellas are something I really enjoy and I am intrigued by the premise of four friends finding a lucky coin to help them with love. It also doesn't hurt that I love Julia Quinn and Laura Lee Guhrke.
Alterations by Stephanie Scott (contemporary romance) -- December 6, 2016
It is a retelling of Sabrina which is one of my favorite classics. Also, bonus points for a smart, sassy heroine and an awkward hero.
Blood Vow (Black Dagger Legacy #2) by JR Ward (paranormal romance) -- December 6, 2016
I liked the first in this spin-off series, but spent most of my time intrigued by Axe so I am excited to read his story.
The Trouble with Dukes (Windham Brides #1) by Grace Burrowes (historical romance) -- December 20, 2016
The beginning of the newest series from this prolific writer that I just started reading this year, thanks to the Read All The Books Reading Challenge.
To Tempt an Heiress (Runaway Desires #2) by Susanna Craig (historical romance) -- December 6, 2016
I enjoyed Craig's debut earlier this year and am intrigued to see that her next book takes place on a sugar plantation in Antigua.
Lady Claire is All That (Keeping Up With the Cavendishes #3) by Maya Rodale (historical romance) -- December 27, 2016
I like Rodale's writing though I haven't read any of this series yet. I am most interested in the fact that this book includes a math-loving heroine.
Moonshadow (Moonshadow #1) by Thea Harrison (paranormal romance) -- December 13, 2016
I haven't read anything by Thea Harrison, but I've heard amazing things. This is the beginning of a spin-off series to her super popular Elder Races books, I believe.
