New in Contemporary Romance - A Lesson in Temptation by Audra North

From the Blurb:

Adam Harkness pulled himself out of poverty to become one of the world's most respected Finance professors, but at the cost of his personal life. When a well-meaning friend gifts him with a dance course, Adam decides to attend one class out of courtesy, but no more than that. He has work to do, after all - or at least, that's what he tells himself.

After being bullied in high school, Julie Stanton took refuge in her studies. But now that her hard work has paid off and Julie has found success in her job, it's time to focus on finding the same happiness in the rest of her life.

When Adam walks into the same tango class that Julie signed up for, she recognizes him immediately as the professor whom she had a crush on in college. Both Adam and Julie have proven themselves to be excellent scholars. But when the attraction between them turns into something more, will they be able to open their hearts and learn a new lesson - how to love.

A Lesson in Temptation by Audra North is a new romance title from Entangled, released July 14, 2014 and available from Amazon.
New in Historical Romance - An Inconvenient Kiss by Caroline Kimberly

From the Blurb:

India, 1820

Georgiana Phillips always conducted herself according to the rules of polite society. So catching Simon Ashford in a compromising position should have been shocking. Instead it was…arousing. And kissing him herself was absolutely delicious—until it led to her ruination.

That perfect, scandalous kiss has haunted Simon for six years. He doesn't regret it, though he's tried desperately to restore Georgie's reputation. When he's ordered to look after her in the wilds of India, it's an opportunity to finish what he started. But he's no match for Georgie's adventurous spirit—she seems set on getting herself killed, diving in after hungry crocodiles and braving monsoons to hunt for lost treasure.

Georgie wouldn't trade her exciting new life for anything in the world, including marriage. And yet Simon seems determined to rein her in, rewarding her brief moments of propriety with kisses far more exotic than any tribal ceremony or archaeological expedition. How can he convince her that she's so much more than a beautiful obligation?

An Inconvenient Kiss by Caroline Kimberly is a new romance title from Carina Press, released July 14, 2014 and available from Amazon.
New in Romantic Suspense - KCPD Protector by Julie Miller 

From the Blurb:

There was no way Deputy Commissioner George Madigan was going to let his beautiful assistant fall prey to a stalker. Because Elise Brown wasn't just another employee. Her vulnerable blue eyes triggered all of George's protective instincts… and now her life was in jeopardy.

Working together almost 24/7 to bring the perp to justice—and sharing kisses passionate enough to ignite a Kansas City heat wave—George and Elise had forged the kind of partnership that could keep her out of harm's way and potentially lead to happily ever alter.

Until a deadly tornado struck and Elise was taken hostage…
