A New Year is Coming! Eagerly Awaited Titles for January

It’s hard to believe that we’ve almost made it to 2014. One look at our list of Eagerly Awaited titles for January 2014 shows that we’ve definitely been looking for Jill Sorenson’s latest release. And if you’re looking for a historical read set outside the seemingly ubiquitous Regency and Victorian England, guess what? So were we! More than a couple of us are hoping that an upcoming WWI tale will be a read worth waiting for. And that’s the beginning of the list of books that caught our eyes. What do you want to read next year?

There are same January releases that I don’t see in this list.
I may be wrong about the dates, and I don’t know the exact release date so I don’t know if they belong to January or February.
Anyway, I think that Karen Robards will publish ‘Hunted’.
Then, there’s ‘Last Wicked Scoundrel’ by Lorraine Heath, and ‘When the Rogue Returns’ by Sabrina Jeffries.
And then in the paranormal subgenre, ‘Burned’ by Karen Marie Moning and ‘Dark Bites’ by Sherrilyn Kenyon.

Are the Romances on Sale for January available? There doesn’t seem to be a link?

I’m surprised the list above doesn’t include “”Single By Saturday”” by Catherine Bybee (Jan. 7); “”Last Wicked Scoundrel”” by Lorraine Heath (Jan. 7); “”When the Rogue Returns”” by Sabrina Jeffries (Jan. 21); and “”Romancing the Duke”” by Tessa Dare (Jan. 28). Those are all on my list!

Books published after the 20th of the month are actually counted as February releases on many publisher’s lists (Harlequin can be particularly tricky with this) so some of these will be on next month’s column. I know I’ll be looking forward to the Tessa Dare!

Somewhere in France has now gone onto my “”to buy”” list. Thank you for highlighting it.

Me too. I looked at the cover, read the description, and pre-ordered it just now.

Somewhere in France sounds interesting and I have Temptation Ridge in my TBR pile.
(Lisa Unger is featured twice).
