Love Reading Romance - December 7 2014

Hello dearest creatures!

Welcome to the week of December 7, 2014! 

At the end of the first week of December, the time for Christmas shopping is reaching its most stressful. That means, of course, that we're avoiding the shops at all costs and settling back with some good books. We suggest you do the same!

Here are our top new romance picks this week:
New in Historical Romance - A Most Improper Proposal by Molly Ann Wishlade 

From the Blurb:

Isabella Adams has tasted desire—and paid the price.

With four scandalous attachments to her name, only the fierce patronage of Lady Watson has kept the doors of fashionable society open. And yet, when a handsome stranger literally sweeps her off her feet, Isabella can’t help but yearn for more…

After five long years away from England, Lord James Crawford has returned to find little has changed—aside from his aunt’s new companion. James cannot equate the reserved Miss Adams with the wicked rumours surrounding her—but he can’t deny he’d like to look more closely.

Soon, the attraction between them becomes undeniable…and giving into temptation has never tasted so sweet. But when the secrets of the past are revealed, will Isabella accept her lord’s most improper proposal?

A Most Improper Proposal by Molly Ann Wishlade is a new historical romance from Carina UK, released December 4, 2014 and available from Amazon.
New in Contemporary Romance - The Winner Takes It All by Jennifer Dawson 

From the Blurb:

For two stubborn people…

Corporate mogul Shane Donovan sees the ultra-cool, collected Cecilia Riley as an ice queen--even if he can't deny that, on the surface, she's a work of perfection his body can't ignore. Forced to spend two weeks in the same house for his sister's upcoming wedding, Shane senses that deep down Cecilia mirrors his need. And he's determined to draw her into a sexy game that will melt away her reserve. . .
Losing is not an option…

Career-driven Cecilia Riley has just enough free time in her schedule to head out of town for her brother's wedding. But her agenda is thrown for a loop by the presence of Shane. Though his over-confident attitude leaves a lot to be desired, his insanely hot body has kept Cecilia up nights. Unsure what game Shane is playing, Cecilia takes the bait, bent on resisting him at all costs.

But as Shane and Cecilia discover, temptation follows no rules…

The Winner Takes It All by Jennifer Dawson is a new contemporary romance from Zebra Books, released December 2, 2014 and available from Amazon.
New in Romantic Suspense - Full Throttle by Julie Ann Walker 
From the Blurb:
Steady Hands, Cool Head...

Carlos "Steady" Soto's nerves of steel have served him well at the covert government defense firm Black Knights Inc. But nothing has prepared him for the emotional roller coaster of guarding the woman he once loved and lost.

Will All He's Got Be Enough?

Abby Thomson is content to leave politics and international intrigue to her father-the President of the United States-until she's taken hostage half a world away, and she fears her father's policy of not negotiating with terrorists will be her death sentence. There's one glimmer of hope: the man whose heart she broke, but she can ever tell him why...

As they race through the jungle in a bid for safety, the heat simmering between Steady and Abby could be a second chance for them-if they make it out alive.

Full Throttle by Julie Ann Walker is a new romantic suspense from Sourcebooks Casablanca, released December 2, 2014 and available from Amazon.
