First of all, from our monthly Spotlight-er Jessica Hart (and don't forget to enter the contest at firstname.lastname@example.org!) and her latest release, Newlyweds of Convenience : "a heart-touching, charming read full of humor and heat". Blue Ribbon Rating: 5 - Romance Junkies
The Desert Prince's Proposal by Nicola Marsh: "Warm-hearted, fresh, tender and compelling...the perfect book to lose yourself into on a hot summer night!" Cataromance, 4 stars
"Shirley Jump's Boardroom Bride and Groom (4.5) is well plotted, and all of the characters are beautifully realized. While it's often humorous, keep some tissues handy too." Romantic Times, 4.5
And a few special releases this month:
Chosen As The Sheikh's Wife by Liz Fielding, as part of the 100 Arabian Nights release! "Full of humour, romance, wit and emotion, Chosen as the Sheikh’s Wife sparkles with all the warmth, charm and flair which readers have come to associate with Liz Fielding! Fast-paced, romantic, dramatic and absolutely impossible to put down, readers will not easily forget this wonderful story of redemption, new beginnings and hope by a wonderful storyteller who is in a class of her own!" (Cataromance)
Also from Liz as part of the Mills and Boon Centenary collection: "In THE TEMP AND THE TYCOON, Liz Fielding brings together two opposites in a story that takes the reader on a journey of laughter and misadventure, romantic tension all the way to an ending full of joy and emotion." (eharlequin reader review)
