With the year coming to a close, it's time for media outlets (like us!) to look back at the year that passed and look forward to the year ahead.

We'll be doing Best Of coverage for 2012, and will invite your participation, but today we want to ask:

Shall I be the first of many to reply with Lover at Last? Though Styxx, the new Guild Hunter, and the new LotU are all on my Can Not Wait list.

I haven't had a look at the expected publications for 2013 yet, but I'm looking forward to some books in series I've begun reading :
- J.R. Ward's Lover at last (BDB #11) of course _ especially since she's given us a few sneakpeeks lately,
- Sylvia Day's Entwined with you (Crossfire #3),
- Rebecca Donovan's Out of breath (Breathing #3) - not because I'm a particularly big fan of the series but because I want to know how it ends, dammit ^^
- Olivia Cunning last Sinners on Tour books : Hot Ticket (book #3) and Snared (book #4, though I think the title is not definitive yet),
- Sarah MacLean's One good earl deserves a lover (Rules of scoundrel #2), plus whatever book she'll decide to gift us with ;-)

I've got this feeling that 2013 is going to be a good literary crop ^^

Magic Rises, new Kate Daniels, of course. Ilona put yeserday snippet on their site, and it was so good....Want!
Right now, I'm suffering from minion panic, so I can't wait to read Touch & Gaux, #7 in Cut & Run series. Abi Roux is teasing us hard!
After fanatastic Iced, can't wait to see what have KMM next in store for us.
As of HR, new Merdith Duran. It's start of new series and her last one was amazing.

I'm looking forward (as I do) to Loretta Chase's Vixen in Velvet and I'm always looking forward to the next J. D.Robb (whatever it may be). But, the one I'm most looking forward to, even though it's coming out in late 2012 - and I've already read it - is Megan Caldwell's Vanity Fare.

@Myretta: Aww! Thank you!

I am, of course, looking forward to JR Ward's Lover at Last. I am really looking forward to Cecilia Grant's A Woman Entangled, Molly O'Keefe's Crazy Thing Called Love, Cara McKenna's forthcoming books for Penguin, and more in the Kate Daniels series. Oh, and whatever Stacia Kane has planned next!

I am looking forward to Dusk With a Dangerous Duke by Alexandra Hawkins, coming in February, but I am even more excited for her seventh book, Twilight With a Forbidden Earl. It's supposed to be released in December and it's Frost's story, which I have been eagerly awaiting since I read the first book in The Lords of Vice series. I can't wait!!!

I just saw the blurb for Nalini Singh's Psy/Changeling #12 and it jumped at the top of the list....

I'm looking forward to Joanna Bourne's next book (whatever year it comes out).

J.R. Ward's Lover at Last, alas!!! I am so dying to read this; I've never anticipated a book so much. Makes me feel all warm inside~ And of course, Styxx's book by the lovely *sigh* Sherrilyn Kenyon!

I agree with Kareni - I need more Joanna Bourne!

I'm also looking forward to Teresa Grant's The Paris Affair in March and CS Harris's Where Shadows Dance, also in March. Both are historical, and both are not prinicipally romances, but they certainly have strong romantic elements. Which reminds me - A Spear of Summer Grass by Deanna Raybourn in April.

Out of Breath by Rebecca Donovan, Alexandra Hawkins next Lords of Vice books, Elizabeth Hoyt's next Maiden Lane book, Jennifer Ashley's next Mackenzie book... those are off of the top of my head. I KNOW there are more though! Gosh I can't wait for some of these!

She wouldn't describe it as romance, but Tiffany Reisz's The Mistress. Bring on the mind-fuckery!

From publisher site
"Get ready for a major event in the smash-hit New York Times bestselling series—a secret finally revealed, and fans are guaranteed an epic surprise. In 2006, Nalini Singh introduced the beguiling and sensual Psy/Changeling world in Slave to Sensation, which spawned a series that has had readers and critics cheering. Througout the incredible 11-book run there has been one question that has tantalized Nalini’s legion of fans. Now, in the eagerly-awaited twelfth book in the series, Nalini Singh finally reveals the answer to the biggest Psy/Changeling mystery—an answer so surprising we wouldn’t dare spoil it. Even if we knew.
Features a secret so shocking, the title can’t be revealed until publication."

Really looking forward to Guardian Demon (Michael's book) by Meljean Brook (and also the next Iron Seas novel), the Psy and G.H.s by Nalini Singh, the new Cecilia Grant and whatever Courtney Milan publishes.

In the non-romance category - Guy Gavriel Kay's River of Stars, Reisz' The Mistress, Michelle West's Battle and C.S. Harris' next Sebastian St. Cyr.
