Here's my candidate for the week:

Burned by Karen Marie Moning
Publisher: Delacorte Press (January 20, 2015)
Series: Fever, 7
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Another shockingly suspenseful installment in #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning’s Fever series.

Burned picks up right where the surprising conclusion of Iced left off, and will feature beloved characters Mac and Dani O’Malley as they embark on another high-octane adventure in the Fever world.

This is a new cover for the book, and of course I love the sexy man on the cover! The original cover (here) is good, too, but for different reasons. This one has tatts. Enough said. :)

Breaking His Rules by Alison Packard
Publisher: Carina Press (September 8, 2014)
Series: Feeling the Heat, 4
Genre:  Contemporary Romance

Losing fifty pounds is an incredible achievement. But for Melissa Atherton, progress doesn’t come with praise—a scathing comment from an evil cousin at a bridal shower threatens to crush her new self-esteem. Who will she bring to the upcoming wedding? Showing up without a date would be humiliating. It just isn’t an option.

Personal trainer Jake Sawyer was attracted to Melissa before she lost weight, but her progress has him floored. When she admits she plans to hire a male escort—and why—his heart all but breaks. Melissa’s come too far to be knocked down, especially by her own family. He’ll go as her date…and figure out a way to keep his hands to himself.

But when a steamy hotel room encounter takes them both by surprise, Jake balks. He’s sworn never to date one of his clients, not again. And Melissa can’t bear to be just friends with the man who treated her so tenderly, even if it was only for a weekend. Jake’s helped her see she’s strong enough to stand up for herself, but will she find the strength to pursue the only man who’s ever seen the real her?

Pat's Pick

Deconstructing Lila by Shannon Leigh
Publisher: Entangled: Select (September 23, 2014)
Genre:  Contemporary Romance

Preservationist Lila Gentry returns to her small Texas hometown to restore the famous Chisholm Trail whorehouse where her great-great-grandmother was a madam in the 1880s. On her agenda is winning back Jake, the one that got away. But how do you rope a man who doesn't want to be wrangled?

Jake lives by one creed:  Keep it simple. His ex showing up in town complicates his life and makes him think about things he'd rather forget.

When Lila's restoration project is threatened before it even begins, she turns to Jake for help. Working together stirs up old feelings, but while Lila and Jake always sizzle between the sheets—or wherever the moment takes them—it will involve some sweet-talking and finesse to bring these two together.

Burn's cover is my favorite, sizzling ! But the second is sweet and the third is yummy (and outdoorsy, nice change from pictures taken in studios). Great choices !
