On the Book Cart

“It’s not you, it’s me,” are not the words a girl wants to hear just before the dessert course (or ever, for that matter, but especially not before being fortified with chocolate) but that’s essentially what happens to Gabby Pearson at the opening of HelenKay Dimon’s Right Here, Right Now. This contemporary romance has elements of suspense and humor as well, and looks like a lot of fun. Christina Dodd has a new contemporary out; Thigh High is set in New Orleans, and features a number of eccentric characters, mistaken identities, and all the excitement of Mardi Gras. Cherry Adair has expanded The Mercenary, the original story that introduced us to the sexy bad boys of T-Flac. Falling into both the paranormal and historical categories is Noelle Mack’s Wild: The Pack of St. James. Set in London in 1815, this one features three brothers who have sworn to defend the English crown. Although their powers of seduction are legendary, few suspect that part of their animal appeal comes from the fact that they are actually descended from Russian wolves. Hmm, hard to account for that in the family tree....
Last but not least, we have a great entry from the Young Adult collection. First Kiss (Then Tell) is a collection of true stories from twenty authors detailing all the romance, tenderness, awkwardness, and humor attendant upon their very first kisses. This one is fun even if your teen years are a distant memory.
