Here's my candidate for the week:

Rule Breaker by Harper Kincaid
Publisher: Samhain Publishing, Ltd. (March 3, 2015)
Series: Break on Through, 1
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Just one more can’t hurt…right?

Re-belle-ious, free-spirited Lauren Renwick has decided it’s time to trade her wings for roots. That means no more bad boys, no more foolish choices. Yet when she’s stood up on New Year’s Eve, her resolution to stick to her Mama’s Rules for Dating weakens. Especially when she spots sex-in-leather-and-tattoos, Jackson Sullivan.

One look at Lauren, and Jackson is hell-bent on getting her on the back of his Harley and riding straight for his bed. Their night together is an erotic rush that has a new word popping up on his horizon—forever. 

Lauren tries to convince herself he’s just one last fling to get bad boys out of her system, yet she finds herself falling hard and fast for a man with a stalker ex and a meddling Irish family. Plus, he has zero chance of passing her uptight parents’ inspection.

Jackson has Lauren’s back, but if she wants all of his heart, she’ll have to meet him halfway—by ditching rules that hold her prisoner, and learning to stand up for what she really wants.

Pat's Pick:

Stella Mia by Rosanna Chiofalo
Publisher: Kensington (December 30, 2014)
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Julia Parlatone doesn't have much to remember her Italian mother by. A grapevine that Sarina planted still flourishes in the backyard of Julia's childhood home in Astoria, Queens. And there's a song, "Stella Mia," she recalls her mother singing - my star, my star, you are the most beautiful star - until the day she left three-year-old Julia behind and returned to Italy for good.

Now a happily married school teacher, Julia tries not to dwell on a past she can't change or on a mother who chose to leave. But in an old trunk in the family basement, she discovers items that belonged to her mother - a songbook, Tarot cards, a Sicilian folk costume - and a diary. Sarina writes unflinchingly of her harsh childhood and of a first, passionate love affair; of blissful months spent living in the stunning coastal resort town of Taormina and the unspoiled Aeolian Islands north of Sicily as well as the reasons she came to New York. By the diary's end, Julia knows she must track down her mother in Italy and piece together the rest of the complex, bittersweet truth - a journey that, for better or worse, will change her own life forever.

I have been eyeing Harper's book. I do love the simplicity of cover, but seems hot. I went with another historical. I think I want to add to my TBR, cause it just sounds good.

Oh, I love the pose and the B&W thing. So sensual! Yay for the bad boys.

Gorgeous and relaxing scenic cover- the blurb makes me want to read this one especially if she has to travel to those enchanting Italian islands. ;)

Red Iza said...

Rule breaker is a very sexy cover ^^ But I'd give anything right now to be in the cover below, we're freezing here !

The_Book_Queen said...

Bad boys = the best. End of story. :D

*sigh* I know, it sounds perfect. I'll take her place, sounds like a great vacation!

SAME. *glares at foot of snow* Although, if I had the guy from Rule Breaker here, I'd be okay . . . :D
