Romance Wrap Up - March 22 2015

Check out our top romance picks for March 22 2015. This week it's all contemporary... until we temporarily drift from romance into general steampunk... because OMG. PRUDENCE!
New in Contemporary Romance - Insecure by Ainslie Paton

From the Blurb:

The worst thing a man can do is not be with the woman he loves.

She could have him sacked quicker than licking her lips. He could ruin her reputation with an email.

Jacinta was the CEO in waiting. Mace was the geek from IT. She had an office suite on the top floor. He worked in cubicle hell.

She had power, influence, her life mapped out. He had big dreams, and an appetite for risk.

They had one hot night written all over them, except the city conspired to turn that night into a weekend of unexpected passion and deep connection.

Will love be enough when Jacinta’s star falls and Mace’s dream takes flight, or will ambition, expectation and insecurity pull them apart?

Insecure by Ainslie Paton is a new contemporary romance, released by Escape Publishing on March 22 2015.
New in Contemporary Romance - Until You by Jeannie Moon 

From the Blurb:

When newly divorced Kate Adams is approached on the sunny deck of a California hotel by hockey star David Burke, and he invites her to dinner, she almost says no. He’s obviously younger than her. And charming. And drop dead gorgeous. But there’s also something sweet about David, so Kate—who hasn’t done anything spontaneous in a very long time—accepts his invitation.

It is, after all, her fortieth birthday.

However, a real romance with thirty-year-old David, whose picture is in the gossip pages as often as it’s in the sports pages, is out of the question. No matter how much she wants him, it’s just too risky.
But meeting Kate has been David’s lightning strike. She’s the one for him, and he has no intention of giving up on her.

So while Kate guards her fragile heart, David sets out to win her over with the same determination that drives him on the ice.

And he’ll break every rule in the book if he has to.

Until You by Jeannie Moon is a new contemporary romance, released by Tule Publishing on March 17 2015.
New in Steampunk (BECAUSE WE CAN!) - Prudence by Gail Carriger

From the Blurb:

When Prudence Alessandra Maccon Akeldama (Rue to her friends) is given an unexpected dirigible, she does what any sensible female would under similar circumstances - names it the Spotted Custard and floats to India in pursuit of the perfect cup of tea. But India has more than just tea on offer. Rue stumbles upon a plot involving local dissidents, a kidnapped brigadier's wife, and some awfully familiar Scottish werewolves. Faced with a dire crisis and an embarrassing lack of bloomers, what else is a young lady of good breeding to do but turn metanatural and find out everyone's secrets, even thousand-year-old fuzzy ones?

Prudence by Gail Carriger (Book 1 of the The Custard Protocol) is a new steampunk novel, released by Orbit on March 17 2015.

Let's be honest, our entire week was spent squealing over Prudence. Have you read it yet?!?!?!?! Go, Gail Carriger fans, GO!
