    I was fortunate enough to get ARC of Falling For A Cowboy by Karen Rock. To say I LOVED it would be an understatement. Now I can’t wait to read Bad Boy Rancher to keep reading about the Cade family. Also love that cover! Karen Rock is AWESOME!

  2. I love you!!! Thanks for including my novel…and I’m a big fan of swoonilicious kisses too! Introverts falling in love? This should be interesting for the extroverted writer 😉

    Most looking forward to Pepper’s. Irene’s and Katie’s. Debra White Smith’s covers are really pretty and colorful! Contemporary is not really my genre but these authors are a must for me!

  4. Heartfelt thanks for including my novel, Her Good Girl, in the January releases. I love being surrounded by such awesome authors!!

    You’re a blessing to me, Carrie. Happy New Year to you and your viewers.

    This next year I’m most excited for When You Look at Me by Pepper Basham and Troubled Waters by Susan May Warren, and of course any book by Rachel Hauck, Kimberly Rose Johnson, or Danele Rotharmel. I probably shouldn’t have started listing them, because I’m leaving out too many. But I am also excited to read many of these that you listed, as well as others who are from my favorite authors.
    I have advanced copies of Elaine Stock’s Good Girl and Belle Calhoune’s Her Alaskan Cowboy which I am excited to read soon.
    Fun list!!

    I am most looking forward to Troubled Waters, The Inadvertent Princess, The Saturday Night Supper Club, Pelican Point, No One Ever Asked, and When You Look at Me! 🙂 Plus that Jane Austen series… those look interesting!

  7. Melissa Joy Romine

    Anything by Pepper Basham is always greatly anticipated! Troubled Waters – because I love this series! And Candee Fick’s book because the last two books were just awesome!!

    Great list, Carrie. I am reading Troubled Waters right now. I am interested in Seaside Romance, Pelican Point and others. I love the Hurricane Season cover.
