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 all books on my TR pile and only books we are interested in spending money on. I do not ask people to recommed books or highlght releases for author promo.
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. You are not getting book 8 if I haven’t read 1-7 … sorry, that is the way I work!!
I haven’t tried this series yet but it is on the list. Jill Shalvis is an auto-try author for me.
When life gives you lemons…
Brooke Lemon has always led the life she wanted, wild adventures – and mistakes – included, a fact that her perfect sister Mindy never understood. So when Mindy shows up on Brooke’s doorstep in the throes of a breakdown with her three little kids in tow, asking to switch lives with Brooke, she’s shocked.
Wanting to make amends, and find a way back to being sisters, Brooke agrees to trade places with Mindy for a few days so she can put herself back together…without admitting she’s just as broken. Her sister needs her though, so she takes the kids and returns to Wildstone. But how do you face home – and the man you left behind – after seven years away?
The Lemon sisters are about to learn you can’t outrun your demons – but if they can overcome their differences they might realise that the one person who can help them the most is the one they never thought to ask.
I am so behind on this series – It is on the list!
Gold Valley’s wildest cowboy has finally met his match…
Jamie Dodge is confident she knows everything there is to know about cowboys. She grew up surrounded by them, after all. But somehow her new boss, champion saddle bronc rider Gabe Dalton, and his brand of cowboy charm have her interested in all kinds of things she never has been before.
There are a million reasons Gabe should ignore his attraction to Jamie. He needs her horse-training skills on his family’s ranch…and the Dodge brothers would happily hurt him for touching her. Forget kissing her. He’d be a dead man. But Jamie’s tough-talking attitude masks an innocence that tempts him past the breaking point…and soothes the restlessness that’s dogged Gabe his whole life. Has this cowboy finally found a place he wants to call home?
I have enjoyed Heidi Cullinan before and this one looks fun – on the list.
Sequel to The Doctor’s Secret
Copper Point Medical: Book Two
The hospital’s least eligible bachelor and its aloof administrator hate each other… so why are they pretending to date?
Owen Gagnon and HR director Erin Andreas are infamous for their
hospital hallway shouting matches. So imagine the town’s surprise when
Erin bids an obscene amount of money to win Owen in the hospital
bachelor auction—and Owen ups the ante by insisting Erin move in with
Copper Point may not know what’s going on, but neither
do Erin and Owen. Erin intends his gesture to let Owen know he’s
interested. Owen, on the other hand, suspects ulterior motives—that Erin
wants a fake relationship as a refuge from his overbearing father.
Erin suddenly heading a messy internal investigation, Owen wants to
step up and be the hero Erin’s never had. Too bad Erin would rather
spend his energy trying to rescue Owen from the shadows of a past he
doesn’t talk about.
This relationship may be fake, but the feelings aren’t. Still, what Erin and Owen have won’t last unless they put their respective demons to rest. To do that, they’ll have to do more than work together—they’ll have to trust they can heal each other’s hearts.
I have read one Cat Sebastian and enjoyed it – I do love a good spy story!
A jaded spy and a shell shocked country doctor team up to solve a murder in postwar England.
James Sommers returned from the war with his nerves in tatters. All he wants is to retreat to the quiet village of his childhood and enjoy the boring, predictable life of a country doctor. The last thing in the world he needs is a handsome stranger who seems to be mixed up with the first violent death the village has seen in years. It certainly doesn’t help that this stranger is the first person James has wanted to touch since before the war.
The war may be over for the rest of the world, but Leo Page is still busy doing the dirty work for one of the more disreputable branches of the intelligence service. When his boss orders him to cover up a murder, Leo isn’t expecting to be sent to a sleepy village. After a week of helping old ladies wind balls of yarn and flirting with a handsome doctor, Leo is in danger of forgetting what he really is and why he’s there. He’s in danger of feeling things he has no business feeling. A person who burns his identity after every job can’t set down roots.
As he starts to untangle the mess of secrets and lies that lurk behind the lace curtains of even the most peaceful-seeming of villages, Leo realizes that the truths he’s about to uncover will affect his future and those of the man he’s growing to care about.
