Welcome back to the Tropical Romance Book Club, a reading project to experience love around the world as written by local authors. In case you’d like to catch up, previous featured authors have been: […]
For the final TBR Challenge of 2018, we get to have some fun with holiday romances. This time around, we both chose Christmas stories from the Harlequin Romance line, though the tones of our picks couldn’t have been more different. Whether you are in the mood for light and dreamy, or deeply emotional and dramatic, it looks like we have you covered with these two winning picks. […]
Here we are with another selection of books we’re most looking forward to reading over the coming weeks. A couple of historical romance powerhouses have new titles out in November; Mary Balogh continues her Westcott series with Someone to Trust and Julia Quinn introduces readers to a member of an off-shoot of the Bridgerton family in The Other Miss Bridgerton, while the fabulous Ilona Andrews brings us Diamond Fire a novella that wraps up one part of the Hidden Legacy series and kick-starts another.

How do you find the books you love? I’ll tell you what I do, but first, a (shameful) confession.
After a youthful love affair with paperback Harlequin romances (my younger sister and I loved to borrow stacks of them from the library and binge read them when my mom wasn’t watching), I stopped reading romance.

Some months the TBR Challenge leaves us scratching our heads and digging deep into our overflowing TBR piles to find a book that fits the prompt. However, this month is historical romance month, and both of us found ourselves with an embarrassment of riches from which to choose. While we both ended up with European historicals, Lynn picked an oldie-but-goodie from the 1990s while Caz went with an entry from a beloved series of more recent vintage. […]
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 […]
