In the month of love, there are plenty of highly anticipated romances to release. The ones I’m most looking forward to are some Romantic Suspense titles that are sure to get your heart pumping. OBSESSION IN DEATH by J.D. Robb is a fast-paced read with an intriguing plot that is sure to keep you glued to the pages. On the heels of that Cindy Gerard has her next installment in the One-Eyed Jacks series with RUNNING BLIND. Kresley Cole offers up her follow up to the Game Maker series with THE MASTER, a seductive dance involving Maks and Catarina. And lastly, entering the paranormal/historical world side of things, Kristen Callihan will release Adam’s book with SOULBOUND at the end of the month! Happy reading everyone!

Love is in the air in February! And a sure way of getting me feeling all romantic is with some of the new releases, the ones I can’t wait to get my hands on are:

The Hooker and the Hermit by Penny Reid and LH Cosway – I was sold by the time I had finished reading the title!
The Master by Kresley Cole – Sexy Russian, need I say more?
Worth the Risk by Claudia Connor – Not normally a fan of millionaire playboys…but hopefully it is worth the risk (haha see what I did there?)
Ynyr by M.K. Eidem – Because what says love more than sexy aliens?

Even though February seems like a slow month for me, there are still quite a few books you should have on your radar.  Starting off the month right, what better way than to keep your SuperBowl high than reading QUARTERBACK DRAW by Jaci Burton.  This is a perfect read and perfect Burton style.  Then closing in on the DAY of love, authors Penny Reid and L.H. Cosway blend their writing styles to give us THE HOOKER AND THE HERMIT.  This was completely different than I expected but a very enjoyable read nonetheless!  Then just a few days after things will probably get a bit dirtier.  I haven’t read this one but can’t wait to get my paws on it!  DIRTY DEEDS by Karina Halle!  And then another one I’m anticipating but haven’t gotten to read yet is Megan Hart’s next, VANILLA!  She’s one of my all time favorite authors and I always go a bit fangirl whenever she has a book out.

There are so many things to look forward to in February for LGBT fans.  First, on February 4, Heidi Cullinan is releasing The Devil Will Do.  This was previously released as Sweet Son, but she has edited and added to it, and it is one of Heidi’s books that I haven’t yet read.  As a huge fan of hers, I look so forward to this one.  Based on the blurb, it sounds pretty sexy and erotic, but also dark in some places.  What an awesome combination!  I am also highly anticipating Cherish & Blessed, which combines books 4 and 5 in Tere Michaels’ Faith, Love, and Devotion series.  I devoured the first three books in this series in a matter of days, and I can’t wait to see what Michaels has in store for her boys next, which releases right before the grand day of love, on February 13.  Lastly, while it was released last month, I just bought the audio version of Criss Cross, book 3 in Jordan Castillo Prices’ PsyCop series – one of my all-time favorite m/m romance series, and I cannot wait to do a “re-read” of my beloved Vic and Jacob in audio, which has received the highest of accolades.
