Top Picks is a weekly meme that we do here at Scorching Book Reviews. In this post, I highlight the Romance books that I want to read that are released this week. They are books on my TR pile and only books we are interested in spending money on. I feel I have to point out that books in a series are only going to be featured on here if I have started the series.
I do enjoy Jackie Lau’s style of writing. On the list – just a heads up, it’s first POV.
If there’s one thing that might get my dad, a retired math teacher, to visit Toronto and have a real conversation with me for the first time in seventeen years, it’s a big nerdy Pi Day party. And hopefully this party—and seeing the tech company I built from nothing—will finally be enough to impress him and make him forgive me for everything I did when I was a teenager.
But it’s got to be a really great party.
That’s where Sarah Winters comes in. She owns Happy As Pie, a sweet and savory pie shop, and wants to get into catering. She makes an amazing lamb-rosemary pie, cherry pie, lemon-lime tart…you get the idea. She’ll provide the food and help me plan the party, nothing more. No matter how much time we spend together, I’m not going to fall in love with her.
At least, that’s what I tell myself…
This is FREE. I have ordered it. I love Katie Ruggle and this is a great way to see if you will too. I’ll see if I like the other authors too.
Whether you’re diving into treacherous waters, racing the clock against global annihilation, or delving deep into an untamed wilderness, these thrilling tales of love and suspense will leave you breathless.
Any Means Necessary by Katie Ruggle
Katie Ruggle brings trademark wit and warmth to her introduction of a family of five bounty hunter sisters making the Rocky Mountains a safer place—finding love and sowing chaos along the way.
Deep Blue by Adriana Anders
Adriana Anders plunges readers into a thrilling tale of survival (and steamy romance) as a deep sea diver and a former SEAL escape a derelict oil rig overrun with men who have a secret worth killing for.
No Way Out by Juno Rushdan
Juno Rushdan turns up the pressure in a high-octane, non-stop thriller where one woman’s defiance—and her fierce love for the man she could never forget—may be all that’s standing in the way of a new bioterror threat.
Beyond Home by Connie Mann
Connie Mann shows that in central Florida’s untamed wilderness, paradise has a dark side, and the heroes of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) are trained to face the worst that man—and nature—can dish out.
I am really enjoying this world (this is the second set in it) so I am putting this on the list for when I catch up. This is £11.99 though so I will be also waiting for that price to drop…
In this powerful and exciting fantasy set in the world of the New York Times bestselling Others series, humans and the shape-shifting Others will see whether they can live side by side…without destroying one another.
There are ghost towns in the world—places where the humans were annihilated in retaliation for the slaughter of the shape-shifting Others.
of those places is Bennett, a town at the northern end of the Elder
Hills—a town surrounded by the wild country. Now efforts are being made
to resettle Bennett as a community where humans and Others live and work
together. A young female police officer has been hired as the deputy to
a Wolfgard sheriff. A deadly type of Other wants to run a human-style
saloon. And a couple with four foster children—one of whom is a blood
prophet—hope to find acceptance.
But as they reopen the stores and the professional offices and start to make lives for themselves, the town of Bennett attracts the attention of other humans looking for profit. And the arrival of the Blackstone Clan, outlaws and gamblers all, will uncover secrets…or bury them.
