Eagerly Awaited August Books

It looks like August will be a promising month for historical fans. We’re excited about a new (non-Regency!) Carla Kelly, as well as new releases from Jo Beverley, Lauren Willig, Grace Burrowes, Kaki Warner, Caroline Linden and several others. As with every new month, I keep hoping that this one will bring more happy reading discoveries and hopefully not disappointments. Hope your summer of reading is going well!

    • I was just going to write Stuart’s title myself! I’m really looking forward to seeing how she does with a new historical series.

      • Yay! Great news – I had no idea and now have a book to look for just before my birthday!

    • Yes – I’m looking forward to that, too! The press release we got on that one identified it as a September release, which is often the case for books that come out in the latter half of a month.

  1. Where is the link for What’s on Sale – August? The link in this article doesn’t work and it is not on the Features Romances on Sale list.

  2. I just updated the coding, so the link in the article should work. The August releases will also be added to the “Romances on Sale” menu soon.

  3. I get it, banter is fun is it not? I like the old time retro jersey though, you? I am sure I have a couple of years on you though. We hope it works out though we have been kicked in the teeth enough in Upstate NY. Politicians you know.VA:F [1.9.16_1159]Rating: +1 (from 1 vote)

  4. Hi there, I think your web site may be having web
    browser compatibility issues. Whenever I take
    a look at your website in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in IE, it has some overlapping issues.
    I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Aside from that, wonderful site!

  5. Surprised no one listed the new Mary Balogh book, ‘The Arrangement’!

    • I think that will count as a September release as well, for the same reason as the Anne Stuart title – it’s not out until right at the end of Aug.
