November Releases

Fate Forgotten by Amalia Dillin--November 5th
Mythological Fantasy

Since the gods returned Adam's memory six hundred years ago, Thor has been a scourge on his lives. But when Adam learns that Thor has been haunting his steps out of love for Eve, he is determined to banish the thunder god once and for all. Adam is no fool: Eve still loves the man she knew as Thorgrim, and if she ever learned he still lived, that he still loved her, Adam would lose any chance of winning Eve to his side, never mind liberating the world. But after everything Thor has done to protect Eve, everything he's sacrificed, the thunder god won't go without a fight. Not as long as Eve might love him again.

Which means that Adam has to find a new ally. The enemy of his enemy, complete with burning sword and righteous resentment of the gods. But in order to attract the Archangel Michael's attention, he needs Eve -- an unmarried Eve, willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

It shouldn't be too difficult to find her in the future. Not now that he knows how to look.

*My Take: Yay, the next book is almost here! I can't wait to find out what happens with Eve, Adam, and Thor! Plus, this cover is gorgeous! I loved the first one, and this is no different =)*

Foreplay by Sophie Jordan--November 5th
Contemporary New Adult

Before she goes after the life she’s always wanted, she’s about to find the one she needs.

Pepper has been hopelessly in love with her best friend’s brother, Hunter, for like ever. He’s the key to everything she’s always craved: security, stability, family. But she needs Hunter to notice her as more than just a friend. Even though she’s kissed exactly one guy, she has just the plan to go from novice to rock star in the bedroom—take a few pointers from someone who knows what he’s doing.

Her college roommates have the perfect teacher in mind. But bartender Reece is nothing like the player Pepper expects. Yes, he’s beyond gorgeous, but he’s also dangerous, deep—with a troubled past. Soon what started as lessons in attraction are turning both their worlds around, and showing just what can happen when you go past foreplay and get to what’s real…

*My Take: I'm cautiously optimistic about this book. It sounds like something I'd enjoy, but the book only got 3 stars in RT. I'll try it out still. Hopefully it's good! Plus, the title makes me snicker, LOL.*

No Good Duke Goes Unpunished by Sarah MacLean-- November 26th
Regency Romance

A Rogue Ruined…

He is the Killer Duke, accused of murdering Mara Lowe on the eve of her wedding. With no memory of that fateful night, Temple has reigned over the darkest of London’s corners for twelve years, wealthy and powerful, but beyond redemption. Until one night, Mara resurfaces, offering the one thing he’s dreamed of…absolution.

A Lady Returned…

Mara planned never to return to the world from which she’d run, but when her brother falls deep into debt at Temple’s exclusive casino, she has no choice but to offer Temple a trade that ends in her returning to society and proving to the world what only she knows…that he is no killer.

A Scandal Revealed…

It’s a fine trade, until Temple realizes that the lady–and her past–are more than they appear. It will take every bit of his strength to resist the pull of this mysterious, maddening woman who seems willing to risk everything for honor…and to keep from putting himself on the line for love.

*My Take: Omg, I'm so excited to read this book! I love this series so much. I've reread book one and I plan on rereading the second book so I'm all caught up before this comes out. The main difficulty will be not skipping to the epilogue to find out who Chase is!*

Crash Into You by Katie McGarry--November 26th
Contemporary Young Adult Romance

The girl with straight A's, designer clothes and the perfect life-that's who people expect Rachel Young to be. So the private-school junior keeps secrets from her wealthy parents and overbearing brothers...and she's just added two more to the list. One involves racing strangers down dark country roads in her Mustang GT. The other? Seventeen-year-old Isaiah Walker-a guy she has no business even talking to. But when the foster kid with the tattoos and intense gray eyes comes to her rescue, she can't get him out of her mind.

Isaiah has secrets, too. About where he lives, and how he really feels about Rachel. The last thing he needs is to get tangled up with a rich girl who wants to slum it on the south side for kicks-no matter how angelic she might look.

But when their shared love of street racing puts both their lives in jeopardy, they have six weeks to come up with a way out. Six weeks to discover just how far they'll go to save each other.

*My Take: This is another book I am jumping up and down to buy. I adore the other books in this series, so I'm very excited to read this one. Seriously, if you haven't read her books, you're missing out!*

So there you have it! This month is full of favorite authors. I can't wait to read these books. The real trouble will be...do I put them on my Birthday/Christmas list, or buy them myself? Hmm...

  1. That is the dilemma this time of year. Sounds like a great list. I want to read Nora Roberts' latest which was recently released. Happy Reading!

  3. Karyn-- Yes, it is! I think I'll probably end up putting them on my lists, but it'll be difficult. I won't be able to go to B&N for a few months, LOL.

    Same to you! =)

  4. Jen-- Thanks! OMG, you need to read both of those authors ASAP. They are stars in their genres. Sarah MacLean's newest series... it's absolutely amazing. She's very good at capturing the Regency era while making the heroes super hot and the romance steamy! I adore her heroines, too. They're very intelligent.

    Katie McGarry is one of the best authors I've read in the Contemporary Young Adult genre. Her characters are a bit dark (and sometimes I think the scenarios are a bit out there... then again, that's what this world is coming to), but she's amazing. She writes teen love very well.
