March Madness

There are a shit load of books releasing in March; so many I may have to get a small loan. Please excuse me for not linking but hey, that's what Google's for, right?   ;-)

Who Buries the Dead, A Sebastian St. Cyr Mystery by C. S. Harris.  (Side note: I just discovered that Harris writes (wrote?) romance as Candace Proctor). I have no idea what number this book is in the series, but it's on up there. This is a great series, but because of the character arcs it really should be read from the beginning. Releases March 3.

Dead Heat (Alpha and Omega Book 4) by Patricia Briggs. Anna and Charles ... *sigh*. Their romance has come a long way since their debut in the short story in On the Prowl. And this installment involves horses! Yes! Releases March 3.

Vision in Silver: A Novel of the Others by Anne Bishop. The third book in the Others series. This is not really a romance series, although it does have romantic elements. I enjoy watching Simon get all confused about his feelings for Meg; worth the price right there, lol. Releases March 3.

Four Nights with the Duke by Eloisa James. The plot sounds a little over the top but, well, you know, it's Eloisa James and it's also the convenient marriage trope, so of course I'm getting it. Releases March 31.

Deep by Kylie Scott. This is book 4 in the Stage Dive rock band series and is Ben the drummer's story. I'll be sad when I finish reading this book because there are no more band members. *sob* Releases March 31.

Of Silk and Steam (London Steampunk Book 5) by Bec McMaster. I really like this series; it has a unique take on vampirism and the first book, Kiss of Steel is on sale right now for $1.99, if you want to give it a try. Releases March 3.

It Started with a Scandal: Pennyroyal Green series by Julie Anne Long. I really like Julie Anne Long's writing and I like the cover of this book. I'm so easy ... Releases March 31.

Soaring by Kristen Ashley. No idea what this is about, I just automatically get KA on principle, I guess. Anyway, it's Book 2 in the Magdalene series and releases March 16.

Murder in Hindsight (A New Scotland Yard Mystery Book 3) by Anne Cleeland. Good mysteries with a romantic arc over the different books and a very unusual hero. Some might not call him heroic but I (obviously) find him fascinating. Releases March 31.

Adam (Riding Hard Book 1) by Jennifer Ashley. The start of a new series by Jennifer Ashley. This story was in an anthology, but I want the stand alone copy - hell, I can't even remember the name of the anthology! It's cowboys, baybee, cowboys! And stunt riders and stuff. Oh, and of course, the wimmens who love them.  Releases March 10.

Shooting for the Stars (Gravity) by Sarina Bowen. Don't know what it's about, don't care. It's Sarina Bowen. Nuff said. Releases March 16.


I may or may not get these next two. The authors are unknown to me, but the blurbs sounded interesting.

The Fighter and the Fallen Woman by Pamela Cayne.

London, 1883

"People like us don't get happy endings."

In twelve years as a bangtail, Lady has never feared a man's kiss. Owned by the ruthless Hannibal Adams, the "Earl of the East End," she's draped in jewels and dead inside. Lady learns fear, however, when she kisses Mr. Adams's best fighter for luck—for King sees the real woman locked away behind finery and falsity.

King's life is made of fists and scars, the only things that have ever felt real to him. Even his name came from the man who owns him—the man who turned him into a champion. From the moment Lady's kiss sends him reeling, King resists wanting what he can't have. Mr. Adams never gives up what he owns.

When Lady is sent to nurse King through the tournament, she finds a new strength through the one man who's never treated her like a whore. King discovers that the woman who shares his dark world might also be the one to lead him out. And as the tournament comes to a violent finale, Lady and King must decide—stay spoiled and shackled, or break free and risk what happens when fear and dreams collide.

and also ...

Time Served by Julianna Keyes.

Dean Barclay had nothing to do with my decision to flee my old life, but he is 100 percent of the reason I vowed to never look back.

I've never forgotten how it felt to follow Dean—dangerous, daring, determined—away from the crowd and climb into his beat-up old Trans Am. I was sixteen and gloriously alive for the first time. When I felt his hand cover my leg and move upward, it was over. I was his. Forever.

Until I left. Him, my mom, and the trailer park. Without so much as a goodbye.

Now Dean's back, crashing uninvited into my carefully cultivated, neat little lawyerly life. Eight years behind bars have turned him rougher and bigger—and more sexually demanding than any man I've ever met. I can't deny him anything…and that just might end up costing me everything.

So, these are my March books. Are there any that you're looking forward to/buying? If so, please share because my philosophy is: One can never have too many books.

Happy March reading, y'all!
