First Look: Maisey Yates’s Wild Ride Cowboy (August 29, 2017)

Wild Ride Cowboy by Maisey YatesMaisey Yates
Wild Ride Cowboy (Copper Ridge #9)
HQN Books / August 29, 2017 / $7.99 print, $5.99 digital 

How can a story be both angsty to the core and delightfully silly, often concurrently? Not to mention passionate and poignant. Welcome to Maisey Yates’s latest Wild Ride Cowboy, the ninth in her Copper Ridge series.

Clara Campbell is in the throes of a massive addiction—to caffeine.

He was perfect in every way.

Clara Campbell didn’t even bother to hide the look of longing she knew was currently etched on her face. Asher was facing away from her anyway, working on making a cappuccino behind the bar—for her—so he wouldn’t notice if she spent a little while admiring the elegant way he moved while he steamed the milk.

Okay, maybe most people wouldn’t be applying words like elegant to the process of steaming milk. But in her mind, Asher could do no wrong, and everything he did was poetry. Including his work as a barista at Copper Ridge’s newest artisan coffeehouse, Stim.

Is it Clara’s desperate need for caffeine that leads her to soak up the magic of Asher’s moves? Nope. She doesn’t even like coffee, a fact that her late brother Jason’s friend, Alex Donnelly, finds both odd and intriguing. Clara is looking for love and affection and she’s built up a whole fantasy around the new barista in town.

Helping people is the best, most important thing I can do.  It’s what I’ve chosen to be faithful to instead of whom.

Reyes (Rey) Llewelyn Walter calls himself a life coach. A purveyor of happiness. A kinky white knight. As the master of BDSM (no pun intended), Rey loves to dive in and work his magic on those he feels could benefit from his tutelage. Which, in his opinion, is everyone. He loves to create happily ever afters or happy for now(s), but refuses to even consider the same for himself. That is until a stop for a nightcap at a local watering hole introduces him to a gorgeous young man who screams masochist to Rey’s sadist.

Just you wait. You have no idea what else I’m going to ask you for.

Aloysius (Allie) Emmett Hart II is a man with a mission. With the face of an angel and a body made for sinning, Allie is fresh out of the military and trying to find a job and a place to live while helping take care of his widowed sister and her kids. Strong, independent, and under a mountain of obligations, Allie isn’t looking for a boyfriend—or a savior.

First Look: D.D. Ayres’ Physical Forces (May 30, 2017)

D.D. Ayres 
Physical Forces (K-9 Rescue #6)
St. Martin's Press / May 30, 2017 / $7.99 print & digital

Physical Forces by D.D. Ayres is the first book I've ever read in her K-9 Rescue series and I can happily say I will be picking up the rest of them to read as well if they're anywhere as charming as this title. 

If you love dogs as much as I do (you say hi to random dogs as they pass you on the street), then you definitely need to pick up this book. Fluffy dog, hot guy, and a PI who rescues dogs. 

This book hit so many sweet spots for me, but what I loved the most was MacKayla “Mac” Burkett—pet detective. Mac used to have a different gig working for child services, but a situation happens that causes her to reassess her chosen career. I don't know whether it's my deep love for all things TV, but I saw a bit of Veronica Mars in Mac which made me love her all the more as the book went on. 

Throw in a first-time meeting with Oliver, hunky Australian (bearded and man-bunned!) and owner of a K-9 search and rescue business called BARKS, and this romance is off to a fantastic start. Oliver stumbles across Mac dumpster diving and believes the worst about her until it becomes clear she's trying to coax a Pomeranian from under the dumpster. Oliver helps extricate the dog and then helps fend off two attackers attempting to carjack Mac. 

It's a bit of whirlwind ride!

The Girl with the Make-Believe Husband (Bridgerton Prequel  #2)
Avon / May 30, 2017 / $7.99 print, $6.99 digital

The second book in Julia Quinn’s Rokesby series (a Georgian-era Bridgerton prequel series) takes place on Manhattan Island in 1779, during the War of American Independence. Our hero is a soldier in the British Army, Edward Rokesbury. We all know that letters are so very important to those in the military, keeping strong the connection to loved ones, and occasionally forging new bonds with strangers. Letters play a pivotal role in The Girl with the Make-Believe Husband.

Edward awakens in hospital, confused and in pain, to find his hand being held by a strange woman.

First Look: Eva Leigh’s From Duke Till Dawn (May 30, 2017)

From Duke Till Dawn by Eva Leigh

Eva Leigh
From Duke Till Dawn (The London Underground #1)
Avon / May 30, 2017 / $7.99 print, $5.99 digital

From Duke Till Dawn is a fairytale for adults. Two years before the start of the novel, a tall, resolute duke was abandoned by the winsome, impoverished widow who touched his heart, body, and soul…and his purse. Alex, the Duke of Greyland, never stops thinking about Cassandra Blair, his “Lost Queen,” or imagining he hears her as he walks down the street. Eva Leigh’s descriptions of London have an artist’s touch.

Night came on in indigo waves, but the shops spilled golden light in radiant patches onto the street. The hardworking citizens of London continued to toil as the upper echelons began their evening revelries. Crowds thronged the sidewalk, while wagons, carriages, and people on horseback crammed the streets. A handful of pedestrians recognized Alex and politely curtsied or tipped their hats, murmuring, “Good evening, Your Grace.” Though he was in no mood for politeness, responsibility and virtue were his constant companions—had been his whole life—and so rather than snapping, “Go to the devil, damn you!” he merely nodded in greeting.

He’d done his duty.

Life does go on, especially for a duke who is expected to secure his succession, so a few years later, Alex is only mildly disappointed that his fiancée runs away with another. In the aftermath of the scandal of the abandoned duke, Greyland is persuaded to accompany his two best friends to London’s newest gambling hell, an elegant, bustling enterprise in a “slightly raffish part of Piccadilly” with “the slightly overdressed look of a prosperous banker.”  Imagine, if you will, a Regency pop-up gambling establishment. At the age of 38, Alex is on unfamiliar turf.
