On the Book Cart

Lots to choose from this week! There are several contemporaries set in a variety of locations if you’d like to do a little armchair traveling. Kate Angell’s Strike Zone is set in Richmond and features a hot romance between a professional baseball player and the woman who left him at the alter three years ago and has decided she wants him back. Also set in the South is Elizabeth Bevarly’s Fast and Loose, in which the Kentucky Derby brings together a thoroughbred trainer and a local artist. First You Run, the latest romantic suspense novel in the Bullet Catcher series from Roxanne St. Claire, moves from South Carolina to New York’s Hudson Valley. If you want to go further afield, pick up Jennifer Greene’s Blame It On Paris, and see if a romance begun in the city of love will be nearly as much fun at home in South Bend, Indiana.

There are also several historical romances to choose from. The latest entry in Brenda Joyce’s De Warenne Dynasty is A Dangerous Love, Jane Feather’s Cavendish Square trilogy continues with To Wed a Wicked Prince, and Sally MacKenzie presents The Naked Gentleman, her follow-up to her previous stories of the Naked and titled. All fall into or close to England’s Regency period. Set in the mid-1700’s is Jo Beverley’s A Lady’s Secret, which ranges across much of Europe. Bertrice Small goes back to the War of the Roses in A Dangerous Love (yes, another one! Who knew romance could be so fraught with peril?) Delhi is the setting for Duke of Shadows by Meredith Duran, a romance set against a backdrop of political unrest in British ruled India.

Last but not least, Demon's Fire, the newest Tale of the Demon World from Emma Holly has arrived. This paranormal is the follow-up to her well reviewed Prince of Ice, and picks up the story of Prince Pahndir, released from captivity and last seen stowed away in the cargo bay of an airship. This one looks even hotter than the last one!
