July’s new releases are unexpected, exciting and in some ways, bittersweet. But most of them are all about the series.
Contemporary readers get the unexpected this month, a reissue of one of J.R. Ward’s early contemporaries, An Irresistible Bachelor. They also get series conclusions from both Christie Ridgway with Can’t Hurry Love and Linda Lael Miller with The Creed Legacy, as well as highly anticipated continuations in the form of Cindy Gerard’s With No Remorse and Susan Sey’s Money Shot. Rounding out July’s new contemporary releases is Jane Graves’s Black Ties and Lullabies.
Historical readers get the exciting this month. The return of Meredith Duran with A Lady’s Lesson in Scandal, as well as new offerings from RITA nominee Kaki Warner Heartbreak Creek as well as perennial favorite Loretta Chase and the launch of a new series with Silk is for Seduction. Stefanie Sloane releases The Angel in My Arms, the second book in her Regency Rogues series and Christina Brooke releases her debut novel, Heiress in Love.
The Paranormal readers have the bittersweet this month: Kelley Armstrong’s new release Spell Bound is the penultimate book in her long running Otherworld Series, and Skin Dive is the last of Ava Gray’s series. And of course, if you missed it last month, I strongly suggest you pick up Shiloh Walker’s Hunter’s Fall, the most recent in her Hunters series. Michelle Rowen continues her Nightshade series with Bloodlust, and a little anthology called Mysteria Nights by Susan Grant, P.C. Cast, Gena Showalter, and MaryJanice Davidson rounds up the paranormals this month.
Let me know what I’ve missed and what you’re looking most forward to reading this July.
