There's always a flurry of activity over at Romantic Reads the first week of the month, and though the lazy days of summer are upon us, August is proving to be busting with romantic possibilities!
Today we're discussing Eloisa James' fantastic new column on Alpha Heroes. Why are the muscle-bound, take-charge men of romantic fiction so appealing? Eloisa opines on this and gives great examples of current books that will satisfy your desire for these manly men. What alpha heroes are your favorites? We want to know!
Speaking of which, Christina Dodd's new book,
Storm of Visions (Chosen Ones Series #1) is out in stores now. Not only is Christina's hero one of Eloisa's Alpha examples, but the book kicks off a tremendous new paranormal series called The Chosen Ones. Christina is visiting Romantic Reads tomorrow, August 5th, to discuss her new books and, in fact, anything you want to ask her! Ms. Dodd has written it all and is eager to answer any and all questions.
In July, Romantic Reads featured C. L. Wilson's Tairen Soul series. There's so much to talk about with these books that we're continuing the conversation throughout the summer. We're not skimping on August's pick though. Lovers of historicals will be pleased to know that we're reading Lisa Kleypas's Mine Till Midnight (Hathaway Series #1) and Seduce Me at Sunrise (Hathaway Series #2).
That's not all! Today there's a round-up of all the hot new releases for this week, including new books by Sherrilyn Kenyon, Lora Leigh, and Luanne Rice.
And don't forget that Suzanne Brockmann is visiting with readers at CenterStage until August 7th. She'll be there, live and in e-person, all day, answering your questions and comments about her new book, Hot Pursuit (Troubleshooters Series #15).
Phew. So much romance, so little time!
