A few interesting ones, but my wish lists have been a bit sparse the last few months.
Books I'm definitely planning to get
Carolina Man, by Virginia Kantra (Mar 4)
I enjoyed the first in the series, which reminded me of some of Nora Roberts trilogies (a bit like the Chesapeake Bay trilogy, I thought).
The Lost Sisterhood by Anne Fortier (Mar 11)
The heroine is a scholar in search of the Amazons. That’s all I need to know.
Sweet Disorder, by Rose Lerner (Mar 18)
I've heard really good things about this one. It’ll sound a bit weird, but the fact that there seems to be a good bit of local politics here is quite appealing to me.
Shadow Spell, by Nora Roberts (Mar 25)
Second in the Cousins O'Dwyer series. I thought the first one was pretty crap, but this is Nora, so she can turn it around.
Books that interest me and I'll keep an eye on
City of Jasmine, by Deanna Raybourn (Mar 1)
After reading Bill Bryson's One Summer, I love the idea of a story set in the aviation world in the 1920s, especially when the aviator is an aviatrix. Plus, it's set in Damascus!
The Jade Temptress, by Jeannie Lin (Mar 3)
I must say, I didn't love the first book I read by this author (which happens to be the first in this series), but it's not like there's a glut of historical romances set in China, so I'll be trying Jeannie Lin again.
Four Years Later, by Monica Murphy (Mar 4)
I'm kind of embarrassed to put this on my wish list, as the 1st person blurb is cringe-worthy. I've been meaning to try this author, though.
Forever’s Promise, by Farrah Rochon (Mar 18)
I like Rochon's books. They're not standouts, but they're really dependable and consistently good.
Fool Me Twice, by Meredith Duran (Mar 25)
Similarly to the Nora Roberts above, I DNFd the last Meredith Duran I tried, by I generally like her books, so I'll probably give this one a shot.
