November Recommendations from Dear Author
This month we are trying to recommend books that come out in November. We kind of failed you last month. Sorry guys. Sadly we are either not reading the right books or November was full of mediocrity. You should tell us in the comments what we are missing.
Scorched by Laura Griffin. Griffin is a perrenial recommendation for Jayne and Jane. If you like romantic suspense, this one will be a good adventure. It should be noted that Jayne doesn’t ordinarily like military books or romantic suspense by Griffin hits all the right notes for her. Review on Wednesday!
Banished to the Harem by Carol Marinelli. This book is recommended with caveats. The book is a captivity narrative where the heroine is taken from her home and installed in a new culture against her will. If that basic plot is going to bother you, then I recommend avoiding. Otherwise, it is one of the better captivity narratives I’ve read in a while and I was impressed with how Marinelli used the trope and really made you fall in love with the desert culture. Review on Wednesday!
Suddenly You by Sarah Mayberry. As Dabney, who reviewed it for Dear Author stated, Sarah Mayberry seems to deliver consistently wonderful contemporary romances. I apologize to everyone for ruining the story in the comments. To those who haven’t read the book yet, don’t read my comments. Reviewed here.
All He Ever Desired by Shannon Stacey. Stacey, like Mayberry, is becoming one of those consistently good reads. I’ve read Stacey since back in her Ellora’s Cave days. I admit I wasn’t instantly won over. When she started the Kowalski series, I still was stubbornly unconvinced of her brilliance but with Yours to Keep I fell hard for the Kowalski series. Review tomorrow!
Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor. Jia has had a hard year of reading. None of her favorites really panned out for her and the new authors she has read aren’t bringing anything new or interesting to the table. Thus, a recommended read in 2012 from Jia is rare. Not like unicorn sighting rare, but close. Reviewed here.
Exposed to You by Beth Kery. Remember the excerpt? Hot, right? The entire book is like that. I know the book is expensive at $9.99 but it is a full length erotic romance that blends the hot with the a wonderful romance. Reviewed here.
