This post is for Kristie, who thought it’d be fun to reflect on her favourite books published this year. My choices would be:
1. The Marriage Trap by Elizabeth Thornton
I’ve enjoyed her books since I picked up ‘The Bride’s Bodyguard’ and Thornton delivers the story brilliantly in this one.
2. Much Ado About You by Eloisa James
Eloisa just keeps getting better! And this debut of her sisters quartet is a keeper on my shelf.
3. Something About Emmaline by Elizabeth Boyle
There’s something about the heroine in this sparkling romantic comedy that kept me in stitches in some parts and had me in tears in others.
4. It’s in His Kiss by Julia Quinn
Julia’s one of my fave of all time. I love her entire Bridgerton series and am eagerly anticipating Gregory’s story in ‘On the way to the Wedding’ due out this summer.
5. One Night of Sin by Gaelen Foley
Another hit by Galen Foley who had me hooked ever since the unforgettable proposal scene she wrote for Robert Hawkscliffe in ‘The Duke’ left me sighing from the sheer emotions and joy it brought.
6. Wait Until Midnight by Amanda Quick
This book quickly made its way to my reading list when I reacquainted myself with Amanda earlier this year. More about this in my next post.
7. After Midnight by Teresa Medeiros
Teresa reinvented the vampire tale and revived my interest in the supernatural romance genre. This midnight read brightened up one otherwise boring weekend for me. Hurrah for slayers!
8. Lord of Sin by Madeline Hunter
A sinfully delicious book which gave readers a peek into the world of lithographers and engravers. Madeline’s historicals are good investments anytime. Can’t wait for the story of Charlotte (Lady Marsden). I love sharp and witty heroines.
9. The Daughters of Freya by Michael Betcherman and David Diamond
This ingenious email mystery changed the way I view emails. I hope there’ll be a follow-up from the pair.
10. Murder List by Julie Garwood
Hardcore mystery fans may turn their noses up at this combination of romance and suspense, but I found that my heart did beat much faster with the unbearable tension, both between reluctant hero and heroine, and the psycho murderer and victim.
