Get Excited with Me

I saw this post on Friday:

New Lisa Kleypas, Sonali Dev, and more exciting romance novels coming out soon!
Posted by Book Riot on Friday, July 31, 2015

I love books, especially romance, clearly this is the post for me [good job Facebook algorithms – you figured out what I’d like to see; now if you could just figure out what I don’t like, we’d get along better]. With joy in my heart and a wiggle in my butt, I clicked the link and saw all the pretty, pretty books. But none of the ones featured include books by authors that I’m already excited to read. I’m sure these are great books and that their authors are damn excited, and those author’s fans are damn excited too. A few, or many [who am I kidding ALL] may end up on my wishlist. However, there are exciting books coming out soon that BookRiot may not know about. That you may miss.

Therefore, I give you [drum roll please]:

Becky’s 10 Romance Books to Get Excited About


Fated Hearts by, um, me. Duh, of course I’m excited my book is being released next month. But you should be excited too!

After two years of running, former psychiatrist Henley Elliott is physically, emotionally and fiscally exhausted when her car breaks down just outside the quirky, rural town of Trappers' Cove, Minnesota. A stroke of luck puts her in the path of Maggie Gael, a modern day fairy godmother with a viciously suspicious husband.

Sheriff Carter McAlister doesn’t object when Maggie’s husband requests he keep an eye on the mysterious traveler. When he does get his eyes on Henley, he has a hard time keeping them - and his hands - off her. But it’s not long before Carter realizes there’s someone dangerous hunting Henley.

A woman with secrets and a cop with scars must learn to trust in love, second chances and fate.

Time Owed by Debra Kayn

In and out of prison his whole life, James "Merk" Tarmerk lives day-to-day surviving as a member of Moroad Motorcycle Club. When club business brings a green-eyed woman back into his path, he recognizes his chance to extract payment on the little girl who has plagued him since he'd murdered her father.

Addicted to highs, risks, and the ultimate wins, Desiree Carlyle gambles on everything, except love. When Pop hires a quiet and dangerous biker to run security at the bar, Desi experiences the calm and safety she's craved since she was thirteen years old, and finds herself caught in a web she can't escape.

He wants the twelve years he spent in prison for murder back. It's time for her to pay…

 Heart of Gold by Juli Page Morgan
It’s wishful thinking on my part this book will be coming out soon. Due to personal tragedy, the author put Book Two in the Illicit Series on hold. Now that Juli is back to work – I’ve been anxiously awaiting the continuation of Rhett & Rhys’ rockin’ love story. While I’m waiting I think I’ll re-read Book One – Sister Golden Hair – for the fourth time. You should too. 

Chicago War 1, Deathless & Divided by Bethany-Kris

I don’t even know what this book is about, but I’m excited! Bethany-Kris writes dark, sexy, realistic mafia romances. And look at that teaser.

Fair Trade by Katie Kenyherncz

Okay, I admit it: I don't know when this book is being released. But I'm friends with Katie [a/k/a I stalk her] [haha, that's a joke we're friends] and not only is she currently writing, but she's writing on a deadline. So we're not going to bother her by telling her we're excited for the next installment in her Sinner's series of hockey romances. But we are. WE ARE.


Alienne Mine by Deborah O’Neill Cordes

Far from her home world, an alien female clandestinely observes the Earth, but her intense need for a mate overwhelms her desire for secrecy. It is time to pick her Chosen, the one who will share her life. With her keen ultraviolet vision, she’s watched the human astronaut, Edward McAdams, a man with a unique and compelling aura. Is he the one? If so, will he agree to leave Earth and travel with her to the stars? But her plans are threatened when she discovers dangers lurking in the vast reaches of the Milky Way galaxy, menacing aliens who may not only imperil Edward, but everyone else on Earth.

Bold Seduction by Karyn Gerrard

An Intriguing Proposition

Passion. Seduction. Pleasure. These are the qualities of any courtesan worth her salt. As owner of The Starling Club, London’s most notorious house of ill-repute, Madame Philomena McGrattan has seen it all, heard it all, done it all. There is little that surprises her anymore, and even less that excites her. So when she is presented a chance at an irresistible seduction, she can’t help but rise to the challenge.

A Dangerous Game

Studiousness. Practicality. Discipline. Such are the attributes of a good scholar, and such are the principles Lord Spencer Hornsby has built his life around. Alone in the Welsh countryside, with only his wolfhounds for company, Spencer has thrown himself into his work. There is little time for the pleasures of society, not even to think of the joys of the fairer sex. But when an unexpected guest arrives at his isolated hunting lodge, Spencer cannot help but be baffled by the presence of this dangerously beautiful woman. And when he discovers the reason for her arrival, and the pleasures she promises, he cannot help but find himself irresistibly intrigued . . .

Scars of the Heart by Joni Keever

Kade Roberts, the outlaw son of white father and Indian mother, plans to keep a low profile as he journeys to Texas to claim the ranch of his birthright. But emotional claws from his past pull Kade off course when he witnesses the whipping of a young lad. Before rational thought returns, Kade rescues the boy and finds himself promising to help the ragged orphan.


Carly Dawson's life has taken a dangerous turn since coming west. If she can maintain this guise as a boy, perhaps she can eventually return to her beloved Virginia home.




Two strangers-each tainted by injustice and resentment-reluctantly journey together in pursuit of their own objectives. While this savage desperado and spoiled eastern debutante also travel paths of self-discovery, will they learn to appreciate each other's differences and find love, despite their Scars of the Heart?


I know these last two have already been released but I haven't read them yet and they're recent releases - that counts:

Company Ink by Samantha Anne

After heartbreak threw her years off track, Violet Young is finally making her dreams come true. She's just landed a sweet position with Wynne's Kitchen, New York City's world-renowned bakery at Rockefeller Center.

Ben Preston rose to greatness as a general manager at one of the finest dining establishments in the Big Apple only to fall from grace when life dealt him a rough hand and his wife left him. A phone call from the hiring manager at Wynne's Kitchen is the catalyst he needs to start over.

Sparks fly when Violet is asked to train her new boss, who stands between her and the next promotion she needs. Worse still, she and Ben must fight not to fall in love . . . because there's a fine line between a delicious affair and dipping your pen in the company ink. Will Ben and Violet turn up the heat or do their careers take the cake?

Last, but not nearly least this hot little number from Liv Rancourt
