Team Phison by Chace Verity: An age-gap romance in with the guys meet playing video games on line. The novella is so sweet and left me smiling and feeling all sorts of warm fuzzies.
Saved and Seen by AM Arthur: These are the first two books in Arthur's Breaking Free series, which is an omegaverse series. I'm hoping we'll get more books too because I really enjoyed them. There are some darker parts of the world and the stories, but the romances are lovely and sweet. Read them in order. They don't stand alone well.
An Unsuitable Heir by KJ Charles: I've been waiting for this book for so long! And it didn't let me down. It was so, so good. I just adored Pen, and I hated to see it end. I wanted more of him and Mark. The rather twisty mystery (I figured out some of it, but it definitely surprised me too) was brought to a satisfying conclusion, and it was good see where all of the characters end up. You don't want to read this book if you haven't read the first two books in the Sins of the Cities trilogy, but really, you need to read these books.
Hexslayer by Jordan L Hawk: I've been waiting for this book too! I so enjoyed the next book in the Hex World series. Great historical fantasy, romance, and an exciting mystery. I already need the next book! I also read Wild Wild Hex, this month. It's a short story set in the same world, but out west instead of in New York. A Hexas Ranger and a criminal join forces and fall in love along the way. You could probably jump into the series with one of these, but it's so good that you should read them all anyway.
His Convenient Husband by Robin Covington: A contemporary marriage of convenience romance between a pro football player single father (with a delightful kid whom I loved!) and a Russian ballet dancer who is denied asylum in the US and needs a way to stay in the country.
Nocturne by Irene Preston and Liv Rancourt: Each book in this series seems to get better. The New Orleans at Madi Gras setting is wonderful, the mysteries deeper, the romance growing. I just love Thad and Sara and want more of them immediately. (Please?)
Creative Process by Jodi Payne: Jodi is a fellow NJRW member, and I bought her book at the conference, though it had been on my list since it came out in September. I very much enjoyed this contemporary romance between an author who gets obsessive and tends to lose himself in his writing and a driven, determined cellist. The characters and the romance were both just so charming.
An Extraordinary Union and A Hope Divided by Alyssa Cole: These books, guys! You need to read them. The second book won't be out until later this month (I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy at RWA and signed too!), but read the first so you're ready. These are wonderful Civil War historicals that tell the stories we never hear but should. They're not easy reads. They don't gloss over the horrors of the United States' past, which makes them very relevant for today. There's powerful history, engrossing stories, lovely romance here. Go read them.
Trick or Treat by Sydney Blackburn: I don't read many short stories, but this short from NineStar's Halloween collection sounded adorable and I wanted a little Halloween-appropriate reading. It was so sweet and adorable, and I had such a smile on my face at the end. The story, though short, was well-rounded and I felt like I got to know the characters, though I would love more about them as their relationship continues. I also read Interview with the Kevin by Mark Lesney, which was a lot of fun (a little take-off on Interview with the Vampire, if the title didn't give that away!).
What have you been reading lately? My TBR is never long enough...
