Every year I put together a list of books I'm already fangirling over before
they even release. We all have those insta-buy authors, and I'm no exception.
I've put together my top five books that I'm beside myself with anticipation
Sarah MacLean's Wicked
and the Wallflower – THE DAY OF THE DUCHESS was
my favorite read of 2017, and getting Felicity's story is enough to have me
jumping up and down with glee. And that COVER! June cannot come around soon enough!
Lisa Gardner's Look for
Me – Lisa Gardner is an author I've been reading since I was in junior
high. Her book The Perfect Husband has stayed with me through the years
and I reread on a semi-regular basis (and, for real, I'll never look at my
closet the same way after that book). I'm really excited for her to delve back
in D.D. Warren's life with this one!
Starless – This is another author I've been reading for over a
decade. Her Kushiel's Legacy series was phenomenal, and everything she's done
since has that same epic quality that's so very relatable despite the truly
outstanding adventures some of the characters go on. And in the center of most
is a romance of some sort, which you KNOW I'm here for.
Anne Bishop's Lake
Silence – The world she's created with the Otherworld series is so
compelling. It's part paranormal, part alternate future/history and I'm really
excited to branch out beyond the initial set of characters we've got to know and
see a different side of the world as a result. And, to be honest, I didn't even
read the blurb when I one-clicked this one haha.
Sally Thorne's 99 Percent
Mine – I didn't read THE HATING GAME until the
beginning of 2017, but I devoured it in a single day and instantly wanted to go
back to the beginning and start reading it again. It's got heart and made me
laugh out loud and the heroine is so freaking relatable that I just want to sit
down over drinks with her. I loved that book so much, Sally Thorne became an
insta-buy author for me and I've been eagerly stalking watching Amazon for when
her next book went up
So there you have it! My To-Be-Read list is significantly longer than
these five with books I'm looking forward to this year, but these five top out
my anticipation levels and make me fangirl squee in a way that would be
embarrassing if I wasn't so freaking excited.
What books are you looking forward to this year?
Married to the enemy
When Keira O'Malley was a child, she used to picture her perfect wedding. The
flowers. The dress. Her husband. But nothing could have prepared her for saying
"I do" to Dmitri Romanov-cold, domineering, and always one step ahead of
everyone else in the ever-shifting power plays of New York City. She agreed to
his bargain to secure peace for her family, and she may want the bastard more
than she'd ever admit, but she'll be damned if she'll make this marriage easy
Dmitri knows better than to underestimate Keira for one second. Molten desire
smolders between them, a dangerous addiction neither can resist. But his enemies
are already on the move, and he needs every ounce of his legendary focus and
control to keep them alive. Keira could just be his secret weapon-if she doesn't
bring him to his knees first.

Mission accomplished: THE BASTARD'S BARGAIN is everything I wished
Katee Robert learned to tell stories at her Grandpa’s knee. Her favorites
then were the rather
epic adventures of The Three Bears, but at age twelve she discovered romance
never looked back. Now living in Eastern Washington, she spends her time--in
men and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse--writing speculative
So what are you eagerly anticipating in 2018? Tell us below and choose one book from Katee's backlist!

Shadow's Bane by Karen Chance. Love this series, but the reader must wait years between books.

Books by Sharon Sala, Melinda Leigh, and Susan Mallery are among those I look forward to reading. There are so many good authors and it seems as if I'm always trying to find the next book written by some of them.

I have so many books to look forward to too! Hello Stranger by Lisa Kleypas, Fast Burn by Lori Foster and The Darkest Warrior by Gena Showalter are my top three.
