On the ROOB Radar: Immediate TBR


Today I decided to dedicate my ROOB Radar to books that I have on my buy-list that are part of series I'm caught up with. I don't have that many series I'm completely caught up with and am waiting for the next release to come out because I tend to "read all over the place" and most of the time I get distracted by shiny new series and books or I find a series gathering dust on my bookshelves that I really need to start and start it but the new releases in those start to pile up fairly quickly too. Luckily I still found enough to fill this ROOB Radar post today...

UNFORGIVABLE by Laura Griffin
Release: 2010, November 30 (print)
Publisher: Pocket Star Books
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Tracers, book 3
Website

Summary:
TRACING KILLERS IS MIA VOSS’S BUSINESS.
AND HER WORK JUST GOT PERSONAL.

At first, Mia Voss thinks it’s just bad luck when her already lousy day ends with a carjacking. But what seems like a random incident is followed by another sinister episode. A DNA expert, Mia has made it her mission to put away vicious criminals. Suddenly, she’s become the target of one. And the only way to protect the people she loves most is to deliberately destroy her reputation and risk letting a killer walk free.

Once, Mia trusted Detective Ric Santos. That was before Ric let his turbulent past ruin his chances with Mia, the sexiest, most intriguing woman he’s ever met. But he can tell when she’s lying—and when she’s scared. The key to catching a sadistic madman lies within a long-buried cold case that has haunted Mia for years. Only she can uncover the truth, but first, Ric will have to get her to entrust him with her secrets . . . and her life.

TURN IT UP by Vivian Arend
Release: 2011, February 8 (ebook)
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Turner Twins, book 2
Website

Summary:
She wants it. He’s got it…and a whole lot more.

Maxwell Turner considers his stubborn and resourceful attitude a plus. After all, it usually gets him what he wants—except for Natasha Bellingham. The long-time family friend may be ten years older than he, but so what? He’s plenty old enough to know they belong together. Now all he has to do is convince her.

Over the past few years Natasha’s love life has degenerated into a series of bad clich├ęs. Her biological clock is ticking—loudly. As a proven architect with her own house-design company, she’s financially ready for a baby. Who says she needs a permanent man in her life for that? She just needs a “donation”.

When Max discovers Natasha’s future plans include artificial insemination, he’s outraged. She wants to get pregnant? No problem. He’s more than willing to volunteer—no turkey basters involved .

But there’s one non-negotiable clause: He wants forever. And he intends to do everything in his power—fair and unfair—to make it happen.

Warning: This title contains one younger man ready, aimed and hell bent on giving one woman everything she wants. Includes interludes against the wall, in a Jacuzzi, on a car hood and even—shockingly enough—on a bed or two. Oh, and about that porch swing? Yup…

But a certain tanned, green-eyed sailor has his own ideas, such as keeping Tara hot, bothered . . . and in his bed. And when her ex wants Tara back, three is a crowd she can't control-especially when her deepest secret reappears out of the blue. Now Tara must confront her past and discover what she really wants.

Those last two books are on my list as well. It takes a lot of time to keep up with al my favourite authors. I don't have much time to try out a new author, do I have enough books lying about.
