  HISTORICAL ROMANCE 

IN SEARCH OF SCANDAL
London Explorers, Book One
By Susanne Lord
December 1, 2015

In 1850’s London, the city is abuzz with the tale of Will Repton. The lone survivor of a massacre in Tibet has returned to England a hero, but the traumatized explorer has no time for glory. With only months to prepare for another dangerous expedition, nothing will deter him from his quest, and no one will unearth his secret. Until Will meets Charlotte Baker...

Vivacious Charlotte Baker is on a quest of her own- the discovery of a heroic husband to raise the family name. The Incomparable of the Season has bachelors panting at her dainty, spangled slippers but scandal is sinking the family and no aristocrat will have her to wed.  When Charlotte meets Will—quite literally, the man of her dreams—no other man will do.  The only problem is, marriage is the last thing on his mind.

The mantel clock is ticking.  The tides are changing.  What if an explorer’s greatest adventure doesn’t lie across an ocean, but within his own lost heart?

I'm looking forward to reading this debut. It sounds really good.


A LADY'S GUIDE TO RUIN
Birch Hall, Book One
By Kathleen Kimmel
December 1, 2015


Joan Price is a wanted woman. A thief and a fugitive from the mental hospital where she was falsely committed, she’s now on the run from her former partners in crime. But luck must be on her side—just when it seems all is doomed, she runs straight into the arms of Martin Hargrove, Earl of Fenbrook, who mistakes her for his distant cousin, Daphne.

Lord Fenbrook has no intention of marrying, and certainly doesn’t consider his notoriously scatterbrained cousin a prospect. But her flighty persona seems to hide something far more intriguing—a secret self she trusts with no one. And Martin is determined to earn that trust…

When Martin’s sister discovers Joan’s charade, they strike a bargain: Joan can remain within the safe walls of Birch Hall, as long as she doesn’t allow Martin to fall in love with her—for their flirtation would surely ruin them both. She’s convinced she poses no threat to his heart, but she’s beginning to realize that her heart may be the one in danger. Especially as he seems very set on seducing her

A debut worth reading. 

  NEW ADULT
 
COME BACK TO ME
By Mila Gray
December 8, 2015

After seven years tucked away at an East coast boarding school, Delilah Blue returns to her small Kansas hometown to find that not much has changed. Her parents are still uptight and disinterested, her bedroom is exactly the way she left it, and the outcast Gavin Timothy still looks like he’s crawled out of one of her dark, twisted drawings.
Delilah is instantly smitten.

Gavin has always lived in the strange house: an odd building isolated in a stand of trees where the town gives in to mild wilderness.  The house is an irresistible lure for Delilah, but the tall fence surrounding it exists for good reason, and Gavin urges Delilah to be careful. Whatever lives with him there isn’t human, and isn’t afraid of hurting her to keep her away.

I love a good New Adult novel. =)
