Try Some New Romantic Suspense Using eSelect

Have you had a chance to check out our new eSelect?  This is our newest eBook collection and we buy them directly from independent authors and publishers.  A really great feature is that you can check them out right from the library catalog and they show up in your main library account.  There is a lot to choose from.   I really like romantic suspense novels so I thought I’d share a few with you. Give them a try and let me know what you think

Down London Road

One of my new favorite authors is Samantha Young.  She is a New York Times bestseller from Stirlingshire, Scotland.  I read a review of her book Down London Road and decided to give it a try.  The story had me from page one, her writing is so smooth.  I loved her characters, they really seem to honestly care about each other. I enjoyed spending time with them.  Her story was just plain fun to read.

What is next on your list?

What are you reading this summer?  Do you have some titles tucked away in gleeful anticipation of curling up in a quiet spot and loosing yourself for a long while?  No matter your location I hope you have books, lots of them.  At all times I have multiple books going.  I’m always listening to one in my car and have several stashed in different locations so I am covered no matter where I am.   It takes a lot of books to feed this hobby of mine.  I tell my husband I have to read for professional development, but  I don’t think he really buys it.  This summer I have been listening to Linda Howard’s novels in my car, I don’t care which story you pick they are all fantastic.  I recently read a new for me author, Lauren Dane, who just sizzles!   I read her Brown Siblings series and believe me I will be reading more of her stories.   I also just finished reading Kat Martin’s Raines of Wind C

Prey

 I just finished the audio book Prey by Linda Howard.  It was fantastic!  I always listen to a book in my  car and this one was so good I could not wait to get back in my car to hear what was going to happen next.  I found myself thinking about the story and the characters all day long.  It was one of those stories that you find yourself rushing through so you can find out what happens next then you are bummed because it is over too soon.  I just love a really good romantic suspense story, and Linda Howard never lets me down.  Here are a few more choices

Fly Me To The Moon......or Scotland, or Egypt, or Russia

 One of the many things that I love about reading is getting to go on a trip to a new location.  You can go any place or time. If it is a time travel book you really get a good deal!  I especially love stories set anywhere on the water.    I don’t’ even care what body of water it is. Where do you like to travel to?   Check out some of these authors and the places they like to go.

The Raines of Wind Canyon

 Kat Martin has been a favorite of mine for a long time. The Raines of Wind Canyon is a terrific series of romantic suspense stories plus  they are pretty steamy at times.  I really like her writing style, she is easy to read and her stories pull me in from the start.  Everything flows really well.  I like spending my time with her characters, and I miss them when they’re gone.  Against the Edge, the newest in this series, will be released at the end of April. It does not disappoint.  Ben and Claire are on the hunt for Ben’s child Sam, who has been abducted by some not-so-nice guys. The twists and turns and ups and downs make for another fun ride.  You have time to catch up on other titles in this series while you wait.

Three - The Perfect Number

I really like to read trilogies. When I find a story I can fall into I want it to last longer than just one book, but my attention span pretty much stops after three.  For me three books is just the right amount of time to spend with the story, and then I am ready for something new to captivate me.  I prefer to find the stories when they are already complete.  If I have to wait for the next one to be published it drives me crazy.  Here are some of my favorite trilogies that are complete and ready for your reading pleasure:

Nora Roberts is the queen of trilogies

Maya Banks Does It Again!

I love Maya Banks’ books and I was lucky enough to get a sneak peak at her newest in The Montgomery’s and Armstrong’s series, Highlander Most Wanted, and it did not disappoint.

Making My List And Checking It Twice

Every year I love to watch the same holiday movies over and over again.  It is fun to revisit because they feel like old friends.  I don't do this with holiday romance novels.  I wonder why.  This year I am going to.  I have already made my list and I have checked it twice.  Any other good ones that I have missed?

Don't Judge a Book By Its Cover? Oh Come On!

I don’t know about you but I really don’t get the cover art for most romance books.  Have you ever found yourself hiding the cover?  Bending it over so no one can see it?  I’ve read many books were there was more happening on the cover then in the pages.   But….. maybe that’s just me.   I really like some of the new covers I have been seeing.  What do you think?   Do you prefer something a little more demure like me or something spicy?
