New Release Romance Reads - April 5 2014

Oops! We're a bit late with our new release picks this week, but they're worth the wait!
New in Romantic Suspense - Floored by Ainslie Paton 

From the Blurb:

They’re a car crash waiting to why do they keep crashing into each other?

From the moment Fetch gets knocked off his Harley, crawls into Driver’s car and offers her an obscene amount of money to drive him from Sydney to Perth — no questions, no names, no chit chat — they’re stuck with each other. By the time they arrive, they’re stuck on each other.

It’s lust at full throttle, with no seat belts. It could be more, but he’s a fake and she’s a liar.  They’re both neck deep in crime, and only one of them is on the right side of the law. 

Floored by Ainslie Paton is a new romance title from Escape Publishing, released April 1, 2014, and available from Amazon.
New in Contemporary Romance - Autumn Getaway by Jennifer Gracen

From the Blurb: 

Newly divorced mom Lydia is just getting back on her feet. Her college roommate’s wedding promises a much-needed getaway weekend with old friends, at a beautiful manor in Connecticut.

When she meets Sam, a handsome friend of the groom, she's nearly overwhelmed by a confusing mix of hope and trepidation. Their instant connection feels intensely real, to both of them, but the ink is barely dry on her divorce decree. It takes all her nerve, and more than a little prodding from her girlfriends, to convince Lydia to give her heart — and Sam — a chance. But when the magical weekend comes to a close, Sam must return to Chicago, while Lydia heads back to her complicated life and young son in New York. Can their newfound connection survive the trials of physical distance and years of emotional baggage?

Written with an appreciation for the day-to-day struggles of a newly single mom, Autumn Getaway explores the burdens and blessings of family, revels in the spirit of friendship, and celebrates the power of romance and hope as Lydia and Sam take a second chance at love.

Autumn Getaway by Jennifer Gracen is a new romance title from Booktrope, released March 27, 2014, and available from Amazon. Check out an excerpt of Autumn Getaway here, and stay tuned for a review coming soon!
New in Gothic Romance - Legacy of Darkness by Jane Godman

From the Blurb:

1837 Cornwall, England

Orphaned, penniless and reduced to the role of lady's companion, Lucy Alleyne is relieved when a distant relation spirits her away to Castle Athal. But gratitude soon gives way to fear—and unlooked-for pleasure.

The ancient Cornish castle is a dark monument to family, fortune and blood. Within its walls, the Jago family keeps its wards close…and its secrets closer. Lucy is drawn to Tynan, Earl of Athal. The young heir is handsome and caring, yet tortured in his mind like his father before him. Tynan is utterly different from his uncle Uther—a commanding, seductive presence whose leonine power radiates from his every word and gesture.

These two Jago men have innocent Lucy enthralled—mind, soul and body. But if she remains within the poisonous castle keep, with its history of ill-starred passion and madness, a mere broken heart will seem a mercy.

Legacy of Darkness by Jane Godman is a Gothic romance published by Harlequin earlier this year as part of a boxset, and re-released as a single title on April 1 2014, available from Amazon. Check out our review of Legacy of Darkness here.
