On the Book Cart

There are a lot of new paperbacks of all varieties on the cart this week, and about half are romances. In addition to our ongoing mission to fill in favorite series and trilogies, we have some new titles in almost every category. In the contemporary realm, we have another hot title from Lora Leigh’s Navy SEAL collection, Hidden Agendas. For a lighter diversion, check out Sleeping with Beauty by Donna Kauffman, a story involving the real life makeover godmothers at Glass Slipper, Inc. Paranormal fans will want to take a look at Nalini Singh’s Hostage to Pleasure, which pits psychics against changelings in an alternative world where a civil war rages between those who have forsworn emotion and their exiled brethren who have not. We revisit the world of the Breeds in Lora Leigh’s Tanner’s Scheme, where the Genetics Council will stop at nothing, even using their own children as pawns, in their quest to destroy the genetically engineered humans they created. Gamblers and courtesans abound in the three historicals on the cart this week. In The Price of Desire by Jo Goodman our heroine has been promised as payment of her brother’s gambling debts. In Louise Allen’s The Shocking Lord Standon, we find a governess impersonating a courtesan to help the hero out of an unwanted engagement, and in Mistress of Pleasure by Delilah Marvelle, the tables are turned on a Duke with a scandalous reputation who is stunned a young lady refuses to make an honest man of him after a very public dalliance. And be sure to check out our Paranormal Romance display near the periodicals section this weekend!
