Those of you who’ve been following this blog for a while know that every month I tell you which contemporary romance novels I’m looking forward to, and I ask which new releases you can’t wait to read.
I’ll randomly choose one commenter to win a $10 gift certificate for herself AND for the contemporary romance author she recommends. More details on that below.
Ready, Freddy? Here are the August contemporary releases I can’t wait to read!
Close Enough to Touch by Victoria Dahl
Can a city girl make it in the wild, wild West?
For makeup artist Grace Barrett, Hollywood isn’t the land of golden opportunity. It’s the land of difficult divas, cheating boyfriends and unemployment. So when her great-aunt offers her a free place to stay in Jackson, Grace thinks she’ll spend a little time in the sticks to figure out her life, and then move somewhere exciting to live out her dreams. But it turns out that there are a few more thrills in this small town than Grace was expecting….
Cole Rawlins is a rugged Wyoming cowboy born and bred. Yet he can’t help but be drawn to the fascinating big-city girl who moves in across from him. He wants to get close enough to Grace to see past her tough facade, but if he does, she might see the real Cole. The one with a Hollywood history gone bad. As they discover a sizzling attraction, it becomes harder for him to keep his demons at bay-and those fires from long ago may burn them both.
They’ll need more than scorching-hot passion to make this opposites-attract affair work. But if they can learn to trust one another enough to reveal their secrets, they just might have a chance at forever.
My two cents
Victoria Dahl’s got a new series out! Victoria Dahl’s got a new series out! AAAAHHH!!!
In case it’s not clear, I LOVE Victoria Dahl. Her contemporary romance is just the right mix of funny and hot. Close Enough to Touch is the start of a new contemporary series set in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and I can’t wait to read it.
Release date: August 28, 2012
