On The ROOB Radar


I have a few end of July releases on my Radar this week. Most are first books in series, one contemporary, a few historicals and a few romantic suspense...1 is an end of June release though and I added two more I'm also looking forward to that are coming next week, which are not first books (the Croft and the Naughton).
As I have a splitting headache at the time I'm composing this post I am not going to elaborate more on the choices and just let you have 'em. Will write a witty introduction next time I'm up for the Radar, I promise!

Yet Sam leaves her breathless - her body tingling with erotic desire - and it takes every ounce of her fabled control to resist offering herself to him, no strings attached. What she doesn't know is that Sam Reston is on an undercover assignment . . . and she's about to step into the crossfire.

Never has Sam ached for a woman so badly, and he's never fallen in love before. Now that Nicole is in grave danger, he will become her shield, and guard the tempting body he longs to touch and taste.

From the New York Times bestselling author of To Desire a Devil comes this thrilling tale of danger, desire, and dark passions.

Widowed Temperance Dews knows St. Giles like the back of her hand-she's spent a lifetime caring for its inhabitants at the foundling home her family established. Now that home is at risk . . .

A WOMAN HAUNTED BY HER PAST . . .

Caire makes a simple offer-in return for Temperance's help navigating the perilous alleys of St. Giles, he will introduce her to London's high society so that she can find a benefactor for the home.
