Be Mine: Unusual Historical Best Bets for February 2017

What Unusual Historicals are you looking forward to this month?

February 14th may be for lovers but I think the best day of the month is February 15thwhen all the Valentine’s Day chocolate goes on sale for half price.  I also love February because while the weather outside is frightful, we have a new crop of unusual historical romances to keep us inside, where it’s toasty and warm, reading.  All while eating our half-price chocolate, of course!

Treasure Hunt!

Passion Favors the Bold by Theresa Romain

Passion Favors the Bold by Theresa Romain

(Amazon | Kobo | Barnes & Noble)

DESPERATE MEASURES 

Georgette Frost’s time is almost up. On her twenty-first birthday, the protections outlined in her late parents’ will are set to expire. With prospects for employment or marriage unfavorable at best, she decides to leave London and join her brother, Benedict, on a treasure hunt for gold sovereigns stolen from the Royal Mint. 

DANGEROUS LIAISONS

Lord Hugo Starling has always felt protective of his friend Benedict’s sister, Georgette. So when he discovers her dressed in ragged boy’s clothes, about to board a coach for parts unknown, he feels duty bound to join her search. But mystery piles upon mystery as they cross England together, not least of which is the confounded attraction between them. As Georgette leads him to a reward he never expected, Hugo realizes he’s embarked upon the adventure of a lifetime…

The first book, Fortune Favors the Wicked, earned a starred review from Booklist and Desert Island Keeper status from All About Romance.  This second book has earned Top Pick! status from RT Book Reviews, who declared “Rapier-sharp wit, dynamic characters, humor and action combine masterfully in this second Royal Rewards installment.”

What Are the 7 Most Romantic Scenes in Fiction?

There's never not a good time to celebrate love in Romancelandia. Your mileage may vary on some of these, of course, so after you read this, be sure to share your favorites in the comments!

This post contains spoilers.

Lady Louisa’s Christmas Knight by Grace Burrowes

Most Literary: Joseph the Poet

Lady Louisa’s Christmas Knight by Grace Burrowes

(Amazon | Kobo | B&N

I love Grace Burrowes’ Regencies, and my absolute favorite, without competition, is Lady Louisa’s Christmas Knight. And one reason I love it so is because of a scene near the beginning when the scholarly Louisa is taking an early-morning constitutional in the park and encounters her neighbor, Joseph Carrington. The brusque and plainspoken Joseph is a successful farmer who served with distinction alongside Louisa’s late brother in the Peninsular Wars, so she’s already predisposed to like him. But she’s astonished when he begins to quote Wordsworth’s “Composed Upon Westminster Bridge,” a poem that evocatively begins “Earth has not anything to show more fair.” (Is Carrington talking about the Bridge here, or about Louisa? Discuss.)

Joseph Carrington’s voice was made for poetry. Like a violoncello switching from lowly scales and droning exercises to solo repertoire, when he put his voice to poetry, Sir Joseph spoke lyrically, even beautifully…

Joseph, for his part, is immediately overcome with confusion – why would he, a mere pig farmer, dare to start “blathering about domes and ships and whatnot” to the wealthy, titled, and obviously scarily smart Louisa? But Louisa, for her part, is enchanted. I was, too.

First Look: Lauren Blakely’s The Hot One (February 28, 2017)

The Hot One by Lauren Blakely

Lauren Blakely
The Hot One
Lauren Blakely / February 28, 2017 / $10.99 print, $3.99 digital

At first glance, stripping naked at my ex-girlfriend's place of work might not seem like the brightest way to win her back. 

But trust me on this count—she always liked me best without any clothes on. And sometimes you've got to play to your strengths when you're fighting an uphill battle. As a lawyer, I know how to fight, and I'm prepared to fight hard for her. I might have let her slip through my fingers the last time, but no way will that happen twice.
He's the one who got away...
The nerve of Tyler Nichols to reappear like that, stripping at my job, showing off his rock hard body that drove me wild far too many nights. That man with his knowing grin and mischievous eyes is nothing but a cocky, arrogant jerk to saunter back into my life. Except, what if he's not...? 
He's the one I've tried like hell to forget but just can't. Maybe I'm cursed to remember him. My money is on him being the same guy he always was, but what's the harm in giving him a week to prove he's a new man? I won't fall for him again. 

But how do you resist the hot one...

Calling all reunion romance lovers. The Hot One is the book for you. 

​We've met both Tyler and Delaney in previous books. Tyler has been a recurring character in Lauren Blakely's other novels, and we met Delaney in The Only One. ​

I don't often say this but ... the blurb is misleading.

​ Tyler isn't so much a new man as the man he's always been. He's matured and undergone personal growth as humans are wont to do, but he was a good guy, and he still is a good guy. In a way, Delaney​ is the one who has to undergo the most change in The Hot One

​In the case of this romance, they're both hot. Ridiculously perfect, well established New Yorkers, living the dream. Tyler is a hotshot entertainment lawyer, and Delaney owns her own business in the city. They met at Brown, both thinking they'd be lawyers. (I know, I know, if you're at all in law as well, just ... imagine my expression right now. I read a book where it talks about the characters being pre-law. I had to suspend disbelief for some of the “law stuff” but it wasn't a deal breaker here.) Tyler obviously continued down that path, but Delaney became a massage therapist. They both excel in their fields. And speaking of hot, the book is too. Tyler and Delaney meshed sexually in college, and it's even more now.

February 2017 New Adult Best Bets: Talk Dirty (Books) to Me

February is the perfect month for romance reads, I mean it’s the month of romance. This month was especially hard because I feel like I’m surrounded by it and there were so many good books published this month! The books below range in theme whether it be some downright “dirty loving” or not quite as erotic but, they all have that swoonworthy, ultra-romance, feel-good story that will warm you from the inside out.

Like a Memory by Abbi Glines

Like a Memory by Abbi Glines  (Amazon | B&N) is the book fans have been clamoring for! The next generation of characters from her Rosemary Beach and Seabreeze series come together.

First Look: Jeaniene Frost’s Into the Fire (February 28, 2017)

Into the Fire by Jeaniene Frost

Jeaniene Frost
Into the Fire (Night Prince #4)
Avon / February 28, 2017 / $7.99 print, $6.99 digital

In the explosive finale to New York Times bestselling author Jeaniene Frost’s Night Prince series, Vlad is in danger of losing his bride to an enemy whose powers might prove greater than the Prince of Vampire’s…. 

In the wrong hands, love can be a deadly weapon.

For nearly six hundred years, Vlad Tepesh cared for nothing, so he had nothing to lose. His brutal reputation ensured that all but the most foolhardy stayed away. Now falling in love with Leila has put him at the mercy of his passions. And one adversary has found a devastating way to use Vlad’s new bride against him.

A powerful spell links Leila to the necromancer Mircea. If he suffers or dies, so does she. Magic is forbidden to vampires, so Vlad and Leila enlist an unlikely guide as they search for a way to break the spell. But an ancient enemy lies in wait, capable of turning Vlad and Leila’s closest friends against them…and finally tearing the lovers apart forever.

There are so many elements I look forward to in a Jeaniene Frost novel.

A heroine to be the heartbeat of the book and keep its pace.

A hero who is undeniably devoted and worthy.

A well-rounded ensemble cast that I enjoy butting in instead of grumbling at time away from the OTP.

Into the Fire achieves all of these, but manages to accomplish a few bonuses.

Do Certain Genres Demand a Physical Book?

I've recently been going through a genre-slump. I have found plenty of books that I love, but realized that my first romance love—historical—had been severely lacking recently. I realized part of that reason might be because I was reading more and more digital books. Which led me to wonder: are certain genres better in phsyical books? 

Do you find this to be the case for you? Do you find that you gravitate towards the physical book format when it comes to certain genres? Or do you find the opposite to be true—that you only read certain genres in digital format?

“No Humans Aboard” Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Deadmen Walking in New Excerpt!

Looking for more Deadmen Walking? Today, Sherrilyn Kenyon shared a brand-new excerpt for the first book in her Dark-Hunters spin-off series, Deadmen Walking, and expands on what we already gleaned last October on Captain Bane and his crew when Kenyon revealed the cover! The excerpt begins with a young woman named Cameron having found her way onto Captain Bane's ship. While the first excerpt gave us a glimpse of a terrified Cameron, this latest look gives us a reason why she should be: monsters! So many monsters. 

However, there's also a glimmer of the romance we first spotted in Deadmen Walking

“Something about Cameron reminded him of his precious sister and this tiny chit touched the last shred of a humanity he’d thought had gone to the grave with his Elf.”

Finding your humanity is the first step to finding love, amiright? If Cameron is touching on Bane's long-buried humanity, are we looking at his heroine and the way to an HEA for this motley crew of pirates? We'll hold out hope—either way this excerpt gave us plenty to mull over between now and the May 9 release of Deadmen Walking. 

What did you think of Deadmen Walking? What was your favorite part? We're definitely looking forward to the monster-hunting that is sure to come in this book!

Science Fiction Romance Best Bets for February 2017—Cyborg Sex and More!

Time to talk about more new scifi romance releases! Each month I pick three or four I feel will be of interest to you, our readers.

Hers To Command by Cynthia Sax

Cynthia Sax cyborg sex sizzles. And there is a lot of it in her novels, but particularly in Hers to Command, (Amazon | B&N | Kobo) which is the newest release. After all, the series is entitled “Cyborg Sizzle.” I thoroughly enjoyed the human heroine of this book, Carys, who commands a huge Rebel battle station. She’s curvy, old enough to have silver strands in her hair, and is resigned to her stretch marks. She’s been erasing emotion and human relationships from her life for decades because she believes people die if she doesn’t react with machinelike immediacy. For example, she doesn’t call any of her officers by name, both so she won’t get too attached and so she never gets a name wrong in the heat of battle, thereby causing a moment of confusion, which leads to deaths. She has a tragedy in her past which makes her hate the Cyborgs.

So of course who better to pair her with than not one but two Cyborgs, hiding a few secrets of their own, but convinced she’s the woman they’re ideally matched to? Ace and Thrasher love each other as well, in addition to their devotion to Carys, but believe they have to hide their feelings toward each other because the Cyborg Council doesn’t understand M/M relationships.  Over the course of the book, each of the three characters grows emotionally as an individual and within the strong bond that unites them. Carys is definitely the dominant member of the trio, although the two Cyborgs are alpha male warriors in every other aspect of their lives. Extremely handy to have around in combat and in downtime, as they upgrade the space station’s creaky systems.

K.A. Linde Excerpt: The Wright Brother

K.A. Linde

The Wright Brother by K.A. Linde

I'd dated his brother.

He didn’t remember and I wish I could forget.

I may have sworn off the Wright family a long time ago. But when I returned home, Jensen Wright crashed into my life with the confidence of a billionaire CEO and the sex appeal of a god. Even I couldn’t resist our charged chemistry, or the way he fit into my life like a missing puzzle piece.

Too bad he’d forgotten the one thing that could destroy us.

Because Jensen Wright doesn’t share. Not with anyone. And if his brother finds out, this could all go down in flames.

When it all was said and done, was he the Wright brother?

Get a sneak peek at K.A. Linde's The Wright Brother (available February 28, 2017) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

“That’s true, I suppose. It’s not like many people move back once they’ve seen the big wide world,” he said with a grin.

“Yeah. There’s a reason for that.”

“What would that be?” he asked, genuinely curious.

But he had to know. Lubbock was suffocating. Big enough to have an airport, small enough for the airport to have to reroute you everywhere you really wanted to go. It had improved in every way since I left in high school. Better restaurants, better shopping, better amenities. But it was still Lubbock—dry, dusty, and flat as hell.

Taking Out the Trash: Arrow 5x14 Olicity Heart-to-Heart

Show/Episode: Arrow,Season 5, Episode 14, “The Sin Eater”
Ship(s): Olicity

Arrow 5x14 Captain's Log

Arrow was back in fine form this week so I believe last week’s lackluster episode was a fluke. We’re back into the main thrust of the season, trying to find out who Prometheus. Oliver travels to Opal City to visit Amanda Westfield, Justin Claybourne’s mistress and Prometheus’ mother. He tries to plead to her sense of morality in order to get a name for Prometheus but the woman actually has none. She’s upset that the Arrow killed Claybourne, but not that her son has killed innocent people. So, basically, she’s not a very nice lady.

Meanwhile, Liza Warner, Carrie Cutter and China White take over a prison transfer buss and kill the guards and head to Star City to cause some mayhem. Back at the bunker, Oliver hands a bit of tech to Felicity. He’d had it with him in Amanda’s house, to “sniff” out any information on any devices there. It worked, but it’ll take her a while to go through it all. Meanwhile, their business is with this girl gang. And Dinah is having her SCPD swearing in ceremony.

9 Beloved High School Movies for Every Mood

Clueless

Today we're thrilled to welcome Sheryl Scarborough (To Catch a Killer) to Heroes and Heartbreakers. Sheryl write Young Adult novels and while many of us are out of our teens, there's still something to love and reminisce over when it comes to beloved high school movies. Sheryl is here today with a few of her favorites—and the lessons we've all learned from them. Thanks, Sheryl!

To fully celebrate the awesomeness of high school movies I made a list of essential high school lessons then filled in movies to fulfill that list. What would high school be without: girlfriends, rebellion, positive self image, embracing differences, sensitivity, higher learning, sensible rules, a do over, and entrepreneurial spirit?

Clueless 
(Girlfriends)

High school is difficult. It’s like being shipped off to another planet where the assignment is to fit in and look cool while learning all about the aliens (called boys!) To complicate matters, these boys aren’t going to give up any information about who they are or how to deal with them. This assignment would totally suck without cool girlfriends to help figure it all out. Cher in Clueless is very definitely the super-cool girlfriend I wished I had in high school. Don’t get me wrong I had girlfriends, and we were cool. But Cher is super-cool, a heroic best friend.
