The first book in this author’s newest series. Described as Dark Tower meets True Blood, this looks like it’s set in an alternate universe with the main protagonist being a gunslinger mercenary. Review to come

Rafe: A Buff Male Nanny by Rebekah Weatherspoon – The original pub date for this was October 2, but Weatherspoon pushed it love over the weekend. So it stays on my October list. I LOVE the nanny/parent trope especially when the nanny is male and the parent is the mom. I am about 50% through this now, review to be posted on Friday.
Steeped in Love by Julie Evelyn Joyce 10/10 – On my quest to find a great romantic comedy that doesn’t rely too heavily on crude humor, I said yes at the opportunity to read this book. Fingers crossed the rom-com gods and goddesses shine down on me.
Going Down on One Knee by Christina Hovland 10/15 – Hero is a biker, rockstar and fill-in wedding planner, I couldn’t pass on wanting to read this book.
Sin & Ink by Naima Simone 10/15 – Excuse me, this book contains the lusting after dead brother’s wife trope. And have you seen the cover?! I.NEED.THIS.BOOK
Secrets of a (Somewhat) Sunny Girl by Karen Booth 10/16 – I read one of Booth’s series a few years back and really enjoyed them. The blurb mentions second chance at love and that is one of my absolute favorite tropes. Booth also is co-operator of Seasoned Romance (older characters) on Facebook so fingers crossed this is a book of grown folks falling in love.
Loose Ends Anthology by Kristen Ashley 10/23 – I have been waiting impatiently for Luci & Hap’s story since I read Heaven & Hell in 2012. I pre-ordered this in July. I don’t even care about the other stories in the antho. I have probably built my hopes and expectations way too high and Ashley has been a bit of a let down lately, but I can’t prevent myself from being ridiculously excited about this story.
Snowed In for Christmas Anthology 10/23 – An anthology featuring couples forced to spend time together because of a snow storm??? My dream come true!! I loooooove this set-up. I’ll be pre-ordering this for sure.
Royally Yours by Emma Chase 10/30. Queen Lenora and Prince Edward’s prequel??? I adore this series and I’m so excited for this.
Mating the Huntress by Talia Hibbert 10/1. I read novella last night and laughed more than once. It has the cutest beginning – and super steamy! I’ll be posting my review this week.
Cowboy Christmas Jubilee 10/30. Always on a quest to find cute Christmas romances, we will see how this one plays out.
Not Another Family Wedding by Jackie Lau 9/25. I’ve seen this one rec’d on Goodreads and it’s on my Kindle waiting for me. I’ll be posting a review later this month.
