Here's my candidate for the week:

Officer on Duty by Ranae Rose
Publication Date: August 14th 2015
Series: Lock and Key, 
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Life is tough but Sergeant Jeremy Connor is tougher. Riley County, North Carolina is recovering from a year of hell when devastation strikes again, and the Sheriff’s Department is working the frontlines. On top of keeping the community safe, there’s Jeremy’s greatest responsibility: raising his daughter. Alone.

Seeing local women turn up dead is enough to shake any father, even a veteran sheriff’s deputy. After years of loneliness, the timing couldn’t be worse to let another woman into his life. But he’d have better luck resisting gravity than resisting Lucia Ramirez, the first to prove there’s still a heart beneath his bullet proof vest.

For the first time in over a decade, serving and protecting isn’t enough to satisfy him anymore. But someone to love means someone to lose…

Kame's Pick:

Heat of the Moment by Katie Rose
Publisher: Loveswept (September 22, 2015)
Series: The Boys of Summer, 3
Genre: Contemporary Romance

The Boys of Summer are back! In Katie Rose’s sweet, sparkling novel, the newest New Jersey Sonic falls for the woman who’s trying desperately to save his career.

Physical therapist Jessica Hart has learned her lesson: Never date professional athletes. She’s been down that road, and barely recovered after the relationship crashed and burned. Then Jessica meets Gavin King. An All-Star slugger with chiseled good looks, Gavin was traded to the Sonics because he hurt his knee sliding into second, and now his future is in her hands. Gavin’s no bad boy—but he’s tempting enough to make Jessica think twice about all her rules.

Gavin is trying to find a comfortable routine. If he wants his old life back, he must take it easy, stay out of the limelight, and keep his distance from gorgeous redheaded physical therapists. The thing is, Gavin isn’t the kind of guy to sit on his ass and let other people pull his weight. And when he sees something he wants, he can’t help but fight for it, even if it means risking everything, even if it only lasts a single moment: like one kiss from Jessica.

Pat's Pick:

Smolder by Deborah Grace Staley
Publisher: Bell Bridge Books (May 15, 2015)
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Old flames burn the longest. 

Bar owner Jack McTeer has never managed to get over his high school sweetheart, Sara Vance. Ten years ago, she broke his heart. Yet, every time she crooks her finger, he comes back for more. Because 'more' with Sara is mind-blowing! It's not a great set-up, but Jack can live with the way things are. Until one wild night changes everything . . . 

For Sara, Solomon's Island is a place of regrets--and loss. So, when she returns home for her sister's wedding, her plan is to leave as soon as possible. Only family responsibilities make that impossible. She has to stay, at least for a while. But once Jack figures out her little secret, there'll be no getting out . . .

It's always a plus when the blurb grabs you, not just the cover. :)
