Top Picks is a weekly meme that we do here at Scorching Book Reviews. In this post, we highlight the romance books that we want to read that are released this week. They are books on our TR pile and only books we are interested in spending money on.
This week’s Top Picks are…
Status on TR list : Pre-ordered. I can’t wait for this book.
There are three things you need to know about Kat Tanner (aka Kathleen Tyson. . . and yes, she is *that* Kathleen Tyson): 1) She’s determined to make good decisions, 2) She must get married ASAP, and 3) She knows how to knit.
Being a billionaire heiress isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. In fact, it sucks. Determined to live a quiet life, Kat Tanner changed her identity years ago and eschewed her family’s legacy. But now, Kat’s silver spoon past has finally caught up with her, and so have her youthful mistakes. To avoid imminent disaster, she must marry immediately; it is essential that the person she chooses have no romantic feelings for her whatsoever and be completely trustworthy.
Fortunately, she knows exactly who to ask. Dan O’Malley checks all the boxes: single, romantically indifferent to her, completely trustworthy. Sure, she might have a wee little crush on Dan the Security Man, but with clear rules, expectations, and a legally binding contract, Kat is certain she can make it through this debacle with her sanity—and heart—all in one piece.
Except, what happens when Dan O’Malley isn’t as indifferent—or as trustworthy—as she thought?
Status on TR List : I really like Marie Hart but I’ve never read her PNR. I am intrigued – on the list.
The first in a sexy, exciting paranormal series from New York Times bestseller Marie Harte.
Even demons need to beware fiery dragon love…or get scorched.
In the ordinary world, forces are at work which keep the balance of the universe in order. Enter Eve Sinclair, a higher demon with a mission—to sway those souls on the brink of Decision, to push them toward hell, as they are meant to go.
After a prank played by her brothers, Eve is accused of stealing a precious dragon egg. Worse, it’s a royal egg, as she learns from the furious commander of the dragon legion.
Not a creature to have on one’s bad side, Ranton shifts between his human and dragon forms, keeping Eve off-balance and off her game. Eve finds that Ranton is more than a match for her…as is his brother, the new dragon king. Soon, they’re not only capturing her desires, but her heart as well.
Warning: Expect snarling dragons, a sexy demon, and a king who demands to learn what love means.
“The fun injected into this story as well as the kick butt characters makes this story a joy to read.”Book Addict, The Crimson Femme
Status on the TR List : I like this series and I’m sticking it on the watch list. At £10.99, it’s too rich for my blood at the moment.
In this thrilling and suspenseful fantasy set in the world of the New York Times bestselling Others series, an inn owner and her shape-shifting lodger find themselves enmeshed in danger and dark secrets.
Human laws do not apply in the territory controlled by the Others–vampires, shape-shifters, and even deadlier paranormal beings. And this is a fact that humans should never, ever forget….
After her divorce, Vicki DeVine took over a rustic resort near Lake Silence, in a human town that is not human controlled. Towns such as Vicki’s don’t have any distance from the Others, the dominant predators who rule most of the land and all of the water throughout the world. And when a place has no boundaries, you never really know what is out there watching you.
Vicki was hoping to find a new career and a new life. But when her lodger, Aggie Crowe–one of the shape-shifting Others–discovers a murdered man, Vicki finds trouble instead. The detectives want to pin the death on her, despite the evidence that nothing human could have killed the victim. As Vicki and her friends search for answers, ancient forces are roused by the disturbance in their domain. They have rules that must not be broken–and all the destructive powers of nature at their command.
Status on the TR List : On the list, I do like this series (and, for once, I am up to date).
The last thing he needs is another person he has to protect…
Tim Means is the sheriff on the White Sandy Reservation—a thankless job on the best of days. He’s trying to keep a gang war from breaking out, vigilantes from running amuck and he’s doing it all with a two-man force. When a kid named Georgey gets busted breaking into the Clinic, Tim doesn’t have time to keep the kid on the straight and narrow. He needs a relative to take the teen off his hands.
But who? The only person who could take custody of Georgey is Summer Johnson, Georgey’s half-sister. She hasn’t been on the White Sandy in almost twelve years . But what choice does she have? She made a promise to her father to look out for her little brother, so she gives up her job teaching summer school and her hopes of a summer fling to venture west and meet a brother she barely remembers. But what she finds on the White Sandy is more than just a family or a sense of belonging. She meets one sexy sheriff and suddenly, a summer fling seems like just the thing.
But things on the White Sandy are never simple—or easy. When the gang war threatens Summer and her brother, will Tim be able to do his job—or will his heart get in the way?
