On the Book Cart

Over a dozen new paperback romances are rolling into the collection this week. For contemporary fans, there are two trilogies from Joann Ross. The first is about the Callahan brothers; the titles are Blue Bayou, River Road, and Magnolia Moon, all stories set on the bayous of Louisiana. The second trilogy features the Stewart sisters in stories set in the Great Smoky Mountains: Out of the Mist, Out of the Blue, and Out of the Storm. Karen Harper chooses an unusual setting – Ohio’s Amish country – for her romantic suspense novels Dark Harvest and Dark Angel. Both look like great reads, with the interaction between the Amish and the outside world lending additional tension to the relationship between the protagonists.
Proving there is life after vampires in the paranormal category, Lori Handeland brings us Blue Moon and Hunter’s Moon, stories of werewolves that put a new spin on the standard legends.
And fear not, there are also several historicals to choose from. Gaelen Foley’s heroine stows away on a ship sailing from South America to England in 1818 in His Wicked Kiss. Kat Martin’s Regency “heart” trilogy continues with “Heart of Fire,” and Virginia Henley heads back to the court of Elizabeth I in “Insatiable.”
