New Release Romance Reads - April 12 2014

Here are our top picks of new release romance reads this week!
New in Fantasy and Science Fiction - After Life Lessons by Laila Blake & L.C. Spoering

From the Blurb:

Hulking shadows emerge out of the chaotic flurries of the blizzard. Something is dying, and so they come, like vultures.

After months of struggling south to escape the zombie-infested remains of New York, a snowstorm traps 23-year old artist, Emily, and her son in an abandoned gas station. Starving and desperate, they encounter Aaron, an Army medic on a mission of his own, who offers them a ride to ease the journey.

The road is a long and dangerous place to travel, and every day brings a new threat. But fear and adrenaline also drive the two closer together; they find laughter and a budding attraction that starts to thaw at their numb and deadened feelings. And that’s when the pain really starts to hit, when places long thought lost prickle back to life. Eventually, they will have to fight not just for survival, but for a future together, or their broken world will swallow them whole.

After Life Lessons by Laila Blake & L.C. Spoering is a new romance title from Lilt Literary, released April 5 2014 and available from Amazon.

From the Blurb:

The last thing I remember is having drinks at Brady’s and trying to avoid eye-contact with my life-long crush—the gorgeous, unattainable Maximilian Hallowell. They tell me that was a year ago, but I have no memories of anything since then. What I do have is this ring on my finger that Max says he gave me, and this much-thinner body I’ve dreamed of most of my life. Aside from a case of retrograde amnesia, everything seems almost...perfect.

But the deeper I immerse myself into this new world of mine—planning a wedding to a man I don't remember dating, attempting to run a business I don't remember starting—the clearer it becomes that nothing is as it seems. Do I have the life I’ve always wanted or is it a facade propped up by secrets I don't even know I have?

I need answers before I marry Max, and the only person who seems to have them is the angry, tatted, sexy-as-sin rocker Nate Crane. And Nate wants me for himself.

Lost In Me by Lexi Ryan is a new romance title from Ever After Publishing, released April 7, 2014 and available from Amazon.

Silent Is the House by Barbara J. Hancock—Grief-stricken Angelica Peters finally visits Allen House, the crumbling mansion she once stood to inherit. She's immediately drawn to the new heir-the family lawyer whose unearthly obsession soon has her questioning reality…and her sanity. Is it Angelica he desires? Or is he only fascinated by her resemblance to the tragic apparition that haunts the estate?

The Witch of Stonecliff by Dawn Brown—Malicious whispers have long surrounded Eleri James's family estate, especially the eerie bog called The Devil's Eye. But the twelve bodies discovered on the property are no rumor. Now Eleri's only hope of evading prison is a man who could destroy her, body and soul.
