I’m bringing back The Reader’s Corner, a bit revamped moving forward. Instead of every week, I will highlight the month’s releases.

Lots of new releases I’ll be reading this month!

The first four books in this list are a part of the Harlequin Kimani romance boxed set. The Kindle versions are available 11/1 but the paperbacks were released in October.

Desire is rising—and hearts are melting—in these sizzling holiday stories 

Hot Coded Christmas by Nana Malone

Nothing says Christmas quite like…computer coding? That’s how CEO Jamie Reed plans to spend the holidays, holed up in an upstate New York guesthouse, desperately trying to save her company. She didn’t count on sharing this secluded wonderland with her business rival, Cole Nichols. But the sexy tech billionaire just might be the one to make all Jamie’s winter wishes come true…

Be Mine for Christmas by Sheryl Lister

After her dream Christmas wedding is canceled, Maya Brooks aims to revive her spirits with a little holiday fling. Ian Jeffries finds the gorgeous bakery owner as luscious as her desserts—and wants more of both.

Can he prove his passion isn’t a ruse and that her love’s the only gift he will need forever?

Bare Pleasures (Miami Strong)  by Lindsay Evans

A redeeming passion 

Ten years ago, rebellious corporate heir Alexander Diallo was living in Jamaica; a world away from his moneyed roots. But his youthful indiscretions have followed the successful computer engineer back to Miami. Now he’s being emotionally blackmailed into romancing a perfect stranger. The seduction becomes all too real when Lex starts falling for Noelle Palmer…and longs to turn the pleasure-driven charade into a more permanent union. 

Being abandoned at the altar left emotional scars, and Noelle isn’t ready to trust again—even if Lex is everything she ever dreamed of in a lover. His sensuality and magnetic charm tempt her to let down her guard and open her heart. Until she discovers that they didn’t meet by chance. Can Lex convince her that what began as a deception has deepened into a love that can erase all the mistakes of the past?

A Sultry Love Song (The Gentlemen of Queen City) by Kianna Alexander

In the key of love 

Joi Lewis’s security firm is vying for a lucrative contract with an international bank. But there’s a glitch she could never have predicted: Marco Alvarez. Years ago, Joi left Marco’s friend at the altar. Now she must prove her trustworthiness to the gorgeous, albeit guarded, a man standing between her and success. Soon business meetings give way to jazz-filled evenings that hold the promise of deep, mutual satisfaction.

Can Marco rely on Joi to protect his bank when she hasn’t always followed through on promises in the past? His first instinct is to say no. Yet this isn’t the same naive young woman he knew before. She’s confident and alluring, daring him to open up in ways he never has. But a safety breach and a past secret could destroy everything unless they’re willing to fight to keep their passionate duet alive.

But he’s ready to create a future together. Even when an unexpected threat resurfaces, Aiden won’t give up this time without a fight.

Are you just going to stand there and watch?
 
Eleanor Briggs just can’t help herself. The sight of the man in the high-rise across the street is driving her wild. She longs to feel his touch up close and personal. To win him over, she’ll need to shake off her wallflower sensibilities and become the seductress she never imagined she could be. The only trouble will be finding the perfect way to meet him…
 
Or are you going to join in?
 
Sex is easy for millionaire entrepreneur Trey Riordan. Finding something of substance, however, seems impossible.

But when the time comes, neither of them will be truly ready for what follows…

Propositioning the Professor by Lindsay Evans – 11/8

propositioning-the-professor

Ian is no stranger to passion or love. He had both with his wife before a devastating car accident tore her from him. These days, he mostly satisfies his sexual appetites in dreams. In these erotic landscapes, a mysterious seductress pulls him over the edge of ecstasy like no one ever had. Not even his beloved wife.

He’s content enough with these fantasies until he meets Tamarind Hannah, the mother of one of his students. Tam is older, passionate, and adventurous, leading him deliriously into temptations, not even his dream woman ever conceived of. With Tam, Ian indulges in the best sex he’s ever had. But, if nothing else, life has taught him that nothing good can last. When the time comes, will he be able to let Tam go?

Take My Dare: A Stark International Novella by J. Kenner – 11/8

take-my-dare

I’ve never been happier than I am with Jackson Steele. But I should know better than anyone that happiness always comes at a price …

My life with Jackson is nothing short of perfection. He is my love, my husband, the one man in all the world who makes me feel alive and whole. Our careers are on track. Our family is growing. And the ghosts of our past have been vanquished – or so I believed.

When a wonderful night of sensuality and passion following a masquerade ball turns dark with the news that haunting, horrible photographs of me have surfaced, my old fears and insecurities threaten to knock me down, and it is only within Jackson’s arms that I find the strength to endure.

But even Jackson’s protection may not be able to save us because I know my husband well. And he will do whatever it takes—even if it means risking himself—in order to protect our family…

Endurance by Georgia Cates – 11/11

endurance

Endurance is a spinoff of the popular Sin Trilogy novels which I loved. While you don’t need to read those beforehand, I HIGHLY recommend it.
I’m a doctor. Mobster. Killer.
My hands are covered in filth. I don’t have the right to touch anything as clean and pure as Ellison MacAllister.

I distance myself … always remaining obscure, composed, restrained.
Careful to never allow my eyes to linger too long.
Careful to hide my interest.
Careful to keep my burning desire buried beneath the surface.

I do it for her–suffer in silence–because it’s what is best for the woman I love.
And she has no idea.

She’ll be initiated as a Fellowship member soon. One of my mafia brothers will go through endurance so he’ll earn the right to claim her.
Make her his wife.
Kill. Me. Slowly.

I’m running out of time. Only a month remains before she’s beyond my reach forever.
I want to taste her. Share sleepless nights. Ride out her storm.
I want to give her the kind of nights she will still feel between her legs the next morning.
I want us to share the kind of passion that forms on our skin and drips down to saturate the sheets.
Between the sweat and the moans and the messy hair, I want her to know how hard she’s been loved.

To have her is to taint her.
I should stay away. But I won’t. I can’t.
I’m a selfish bastard.
A selfish bastard in love.

Over the Edge by Meredith Wild – 11/22

over-the-edge

 

Olivia Bridge has always been a good girl—good grades, good friends, and a good job that her wealthy parents handed her. Desperate to carve out a life that is truly hers, Liv walks away from it all and takes on the challenge of helping her brothers open a chain of fitness centers in New York City. Just as she’s beginning to find her footing in a new place, she’s caught between two men who couldn’t be more determined to turn all her goodness inside out.

Will Donovan has the capital to make the Bridge brothers’ entrepreneurial dreams a reality. Taking their uptight sister to bed seems a reasonable perk for the risk. Liv is the smartest, sexiest prude Will’s ever met, and he can’t wait to break her down.

Life is too short for Ian Savo to play by anyone’s rules. Sharing women with his best friend isn’t anything new, so when Will introduces him to Liv, he can’t wait to get a taste. But falling for the same girl, or falling at all, was never in the plans…
