Here's my candidate for the week:

Once Upon a Cowboy by Maggie McGinnis
Publisher: Loveswept (June 30, 2015)
Series: Whisper Creek, 1
Genre: Contemporary Romance

In this sexy Whisper Creek romance for readers of Kristan Higgins, Susan Mallery, and Molly O’Keefe, a red-hot cowboy uses some Montana magic to give a reclusive beauty her happily ever after.

Yoga instructor Jessalyn Alcott radiates peace, calm, and serenity—on the outside. Inside, she still feels like the broken, desperate girl from the trailer park. She’s got dark secrets she can’t share, which is why she never lets her relationships go beyond the third date. But when she travels to the Whisper Creek dude ranch for a friend’s wedding, Jess is enchanted by a cowboy whose deep blue eyes, dimpled smile, and rock-hard body make it tough to remember why she keeps running scared.

Cole Driscoll has struggled to find his place on a family ranch where he’s always played second fiddle. His future might be uncertain, but he’s sure of one thing: He wants Jess by his side. Easier said than done. When it comes to getting close, she’s full of excuses, and he longs to fix the hurt he sees in her eyes. Now that she’s at Whisper Creek, there’s nothing he wants more than to break down the walls around her heart and heal her pain with the power of love.

Series: Second Chance, 1
Genre: Contemporary Romance

The Bad Boy Is Back

Evan Downey needs a new beginning. Since the death of his wife five years ago, the brilliant tattoo artist has shut himself away in a prison of grief that not even his work can break him out of-and what's worse, Evan knows his son Lyon is bearing the brunt of his seclusion. Moving back to the lake town of Evergreen Cove where he spent his childhood summers is his last chance for a fresh start. 

Charlotte Harris knows she owes it to her best friend's memory to help Evan and his son find their way again, but she can't stop her traitorous heart from skipping a beat every time she looks into Evan's mesmerizing eyes. Charlotte is determined to stay strictly in the Friend Zone-until a mind-blowing night knocks that plan by the wayside. Now, if they're brave enough to let it, Charlotte and Evan might just find a love capable of healing their broken hearts . . .

By the way, Pat's review for this book will be up next week!

Pat's Pick:

Feeding the Flames by Leah Braemel
Publisher: Somerlane Publishing (February 7, 2015)
Series: Flirting with Fire, 1
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Sometimes your soulmate has been right in front of you their whole life. It shouldn’t take almost losing them to find them. 

Volunteer firefighter Zac Buchanan has been carrying a torch for Tabatha Morgan since…well, forever. A promise he made years ago backfired, sending Tabatha into the arms of another man, and him into a decade of heartache. Now Tabatha’s back in town, newly divorced, and the sparks between them are setting them both aflame.

Tabatha would have bet her secret five-alarm chili recipe that her school girl crush on Zac had died out long ago. Except those slumbering embers reignited the moment Zac walked into her diner. Now each time she sees him—hears him, thinks about him—she can’t imagine her life without him again.

But if their new-found love and sizzlin’ hot action in the bedroom—and living room, kitchen and bathroom—is to survive, Tabatha must also accept the smoke, flames Tabatha must also accept the smoke, flames and danger of Zac’s job. Or their happy-ever-after will forever be extinguished.

Oh yeah. Lemmon's cover was incredible. I loved it really fit the hero too. They did a great job with that one.

The_Book_Queen said...

;) Tatts, muscles AND a bad boy? What sane would could resist that? lol

Melody May said...

Man, that Evan gets around. LOL. Anyway, I love the cover Pat pick, but you can never go wrong with abs that are rock hard. *self-fans*

The_Book_Queen said...

LOL He does get around . . . Also rock hard abs are the answer to life's most difficult questions . . . at least in my opinion! ;)

Red Iza said...

I love the progression in your choice of covers : the sexy couple in a sexy pose, Jessica Lemmon's irresistible cover (I bought that book partly because of that cover !), and the promise of passion in the latest cover. Yummy !

The_Book_Queen said...

;) Hehe, I hadn't even realized it, but you're right, it goes from tame to WOW.
