Incredibly, it’s time for the final Coming Soon of 2018! As always, the AAR team has had a good look around at the books being released over the next few weeks, and chosen the ones we’re most looking forward to reading. […]
Here we are, heading into the back end of the year with our regular monthly look at the books we’re most excited about reading over the coming weeks. As usual, this is just a small selection of the books released every month – we can’t include them all, so please drop by and let us know if you’re looking forward to something you think we should know about! […]
We’re back with our regular Coming Soon feature, in which AAR staffers take a look ahead at which books we’re most looking forward to reading in September. The last quarter of the year (and where did the rest of it go?!) usually sees masses of new releases flooding the bookstores, and we’re here to help you sift through the vast numbers of titles likely to be on offer over the next few months.
This is just a small selection of the books being released in September; what are YOU looking forward to that we’ve missed? Drop by and tell us what you’re dying to read next month in the comments!
Last Night with The Earl by Kelly Bowen (25 Sep)
A new book from Kelly Bowen? I don’t even care what it’s about, count me in! – Caz
A Waterloo-scarred […]
A new book from Tessa Dare is obviously a big event for many romance fans, and the AAR staffers are no different, with many of us choosing The Governess Game as one of the titles we’re most looking forward to reading in August. In fact, we’re looking forward to quite a few historicals this month – Caroline Linden, Kerrigan Byrne and Virginia Heath all have new books coming out, Bec McMaster continues her Blue-Blood Conspiracy series and there’s a long-awaited new book from Susanna Kearsley, too.
These are (some of) the books we’re most looking forward to reading in August – tell us in the comments which books YOU can’t wait to get your hands on!
The Governess Game by Tessa Dare (28 Aug)
In The Governess Game we get to know […]
We’re rounding out Pride Month with another selection of our favourite queer love stories, all of them celebrating the truth that Love is Love is Love. And as ever, we’d love to hear from you about your favourites, so please drop by and tell us about the awesome queer romances YOU love.
Glitterland by Alexis Hall
I love Glitterland. The ultimate romance of opposites.
The Essex vernacular is most often commented on in this novel, but it is a vital component, and one I found very entertaining.
However, Alexis Hall’s accurate portrayal of depression is inspired especially juxtaposed with characters who are fizzy and full of life. The innocent wisdom of Darian is so adorable and undercuts any sense of Ash’s intellectual fustiness.
For me, the Essex accent heightens Darian’s vulnerability and innocence. […]
In part two of our reminiscences about our first experiences with romance novels, AAR staffers are here to share more of our stories about our first romances, when we read them, who we read them with and what, ultimately, made us fall in love with the genre. […]
According to my Goodreads account I have read the book Kiss an Angel by Susan Elizabeth Phillips four times. By my estimate, it might actually be more like six. There is something about this book that I love.
Daisy finds herself in an arranged marriage with Alex Markov, though neither of them wants to be married to the other. Alex drags her away to work in the circus, live in a travel trailer, and be his neglected wife until they can go their separate ways. So to tick off what it has that I adore in a book, it’s a contemporary, yet it is a marriage of convenience (or inconvenience in this case) story, they’re in forced proximity, traveling on the road, and best of all, it has a circus.
I love everything about the circus (except animal abuse, more on that […]
2018 has already started, but there is a whole year of great books ahead of us. I asked my fellow AAR staffers what books they are most looking forward to for the rest of the year and got back a big variety of books. However, several titles were mentioned over and over. Check out what our staff had to say about their most anticipated reads for 2018, and be sure to let us know in the comments if you’re looking forward to these as well, or if we missed something you can’t wait to get your hands on.

Our Most Anticipated
The Sins of Lord Lockwood by Meredith Duran (Feb 27)
I am an unabashed Meredith Duran fangirl and have loved everything of hers I’ve read. Her writing […]
I’m a lover of documentaries and of the Romance genre, so when buzz started on Twitter that the film Love Between the Covers was available to stream through Amazon, Netflix, and iTunes I had to watch it right away. Love Between the Covers follows five published authors (Beverly Jenkins, Eloisa James, Radclyffe, Susan Donovan, and Celeste Bradley) as well as one aspiring author for three years as they navigate the ins and outs of the Romance world. (Here’s the trailer.)
For those already immersed in Romance, as so many AAR readers are, much of the content of the documentary won’t be new to you. The Romance genre sells big numbers, it is fueled by women who write for women, and the books are as diverse and interesting as the women who are involved in it. I think that the film is really intended for those outside of the Romance community […]
