A spotlight on a few upcoming 2018 Berkley Romance titles:


THE WEDDING DATE by Jasmine Guillory; 1/30/18

He’s cute. She’s beautiful. He’s single. She’s single. And they’re trapped in an elevator together. Things could be worse…like being a dateless groomsman in your former best friend’s wedding to your ex. Which is why Drew spontaneously asks Alexa to be his date for the weekend.

There are no strings attached, since they live at opposite ends of California. But when they end up having the time of their lives together, neither one of them resists a little travel time to see the other again. Soon Drew and Alexa will have to decide between what they think they need and what they truly want.

THE KISS QUOTIENT by Helen Hoang; 6/5/18

Stella Lane firmly believes that math is the only thing that unites the universe. So she decides to apply her algorithmically inclined skills to dating, specifically sex and becoming better at it. Devoted to her job as an econometrician and leaving time for little else, Stella has accrued plenty of money and now knows exactly how she wants to spend it: by paying the enticing Vietnamese and Swedish escort, Michael Phan, for lessons. Because who better to teach her about seduction than a professional?

Michael can’t afford to turn down Stella’s offer even though it breaks his strict “one night only” rule. He agrees to help her check off all the items on her lesson plan and as he spends more time with her, he can’t help but look forward to finishing every single task on that list.

JUDGMENT ROAD by Christine Feehan; 1/23/18

First in the new Torpedo Ink series… An outlaw motorcycle club sets up shop next door to Sea Haven and Reaper, its enforcer, falls for the bartender with secrets behind her eyes. The small town of Caspar has given Anya Rafferty a new lease on life so she’s desperate to hold on to her job at the biker bar, even if the scariest member of the club seems to have it out for her. But when the past catches up to her, Reaper will have to choose between her and his club–his heart and his soul.

THE OTHER LADY VANISHES by Amanda Quick; 5/8/18

After escaping from a private sanitarium, Adelaide Blake arrives in Burning Cove, California, desperate to start over. Working at an herbal teashop she meets Jake Truett, a recently widowed businessman in town for a therapeutic rest. But unbeknownst to Adelaide, his exhaustion is just a cover.

In Burning Cove, no one is who they seem. Behind facades of glamour and power, hide drug dealers, gangsters, and grifters. And so enters psychic to the stars Madame Zolanda. Adelaide and Jake know better than to fall for her kind of con. But when she’s killed fitting her own dire prediction, they’re drawn into a murky world of duplicity and misdirection.

  1. CelineB

    I can’t wait to read the new Amanda Quick novel. I enjoyed her last book with the same setting and time period.

  2. Donna Ariola

    I would like to read Judgement Road because I have never read anything by Christine Feegan before and thus book sounds like its something I would like to read. I am open to trying new authors to me. I love books!

  3. ladyvampire

    Amanda Quick is a great author. And I read everything that Christine Feehan writes. The above mentioned book “Judgment Road” sounds really good, plus it’s the first of a new series so I definitely want to read that book. I hope you had a great Christmas and thanks for the chance to win.

  4. Audrey Stewart

    I really want to read Someone to Hold – Someone to Love-Someone to Wed all by Mary Balogh.

  5. Karina Angeles

    These are all new authors to me. I’d love to read The Kiss Quotient. A Smart heroine with a cocky hero is my catnip!

  6. lelandandbecky

    Blue Skies by Catherine Anderson sounds good, because I am familiar with the author. Also I find it interesting that the heroine was once blind because of a rare eye disease, and an operation gave her sight. Sounds intriguing!

  7. Ruth Skyllark

    Anything from Catherine Andn to Jennifer ASHLEY. But then I like Mary Balogh as well as Jayne Ann Krenttz. Great selection!u

  8. Michelle Bledsoe

    Amanda Quick is an all time favorite. I also found some new authors that I will be trying in 2018.

  9. Lynnette W Allen

    Many of these authors are automatic reads for me, and I’d love any of their books. But, surprisingly, even though I adore Nalini Singh’s Guild Hunter and Rock Kiss series, I’ve never read the Psy Changeling series. I’d like to rectify that!

  10. Christy

    Judgment Road sounds really interesting. I’ve enjoyed Feehan’s other book series in the past, and I can’t wait to read this one!

  11. Diane Sallans

    THE OTHER LADY VANISHES by Amanda Quick – I love all her different genres under her different author names!

  12. Lauren Whitley

    I love love love Nalini Singh and have read and re-read almost all of her books. I would absolutely love a copy of Allegiance of Honor!

  13. Teresa Williams

    I’ve read Christine Feehan ,Catherine Anderson,and Lora Leigh but not many .When it says Lorelei James I’m going to buy it.Love her books .

  14. Gwen Noyes

    THE OTHER LADY VANISHES by Amanda Quick. I’ve read every Amanda Quick book i could get and loved them all.

  15. Eva Millien

    There are so many great books coming out but on this list Judgement Road by Christine Feehan has certainly caught my eye and I am waiting impatiently. Have a wonderful holiday season!

  16. 3rsthreers

    Cannot wait for Red Wolf by Jennifer Ashley. Love the series. It is one of few series that everyone in my family reads.

  17. Kay Garrett

    I’m torn between THE WEDDING DATE by Jasmine Guillory and JUDGMENT ROAD by Christine Feehan. The Wedding Date fascinates me because having an “ex” that I’d have no part of, I wonder how anyone could be part of their exes wedding. Judgement Road is interesting because I love stories around bike gangs. If I had to pick one, it would probably be The Wedding Date.

  18. Caro

    ‘THE KISS QUOTIENT’ by Helen Hoang! I’ve been hearing about this one for a while and it sounds amazing, super lovely.

  19. Nancy Luebke

    OMG, so many good authors above. The first two that grabbed my attention was “The Wedding date’, I really like those kind, but sometimes I need to shake up my reading a little bit and that “THE OTHER LADY VANISHES” fits the bill kind of thing. And that is why I read so many books.

  20. Mary C

    The Other Lady Vanishes by Amanda Quick – looking forward to the second Burning Cove book.

  21. Linda Leonard

    A little partial to Catherine Anderson titles, so I’m looking forward to reading “Blue Skies”, “The Christmas Room” and “Spring Forward”.

  22. wendy rinebold

    I love Penelope Douglas and Lorelei James books so I would look forward to those the most.

  23. Elizabeth Schroedle

    I’m looking forward to the new Amanda Quick book. She is a favorite of mine and I have all her books.

  24. erinf1

    I like the sound of THE WEDDING DATE by Jasmine Guillory 🙂 thanks for another awesome giveaway!

  25. LauraJJ

    Oh the THE WEDDING DATE by Jasmine Guillory grabbed my attention! I love romances with weddings! I love how they meet…and cannot wait to see what all happens…and how they fall…and what their final decision will be.

  26. Tia

    THE OTHER LADY VANISHES by Amanda Quick sounds interesting and I want to find out all of the secrets.

  27. belindaegreen

    The book that stopped me is THE WEDDING DATE by Jasmine Guillory. She is a new author to me. However, I like the ex marrying best friends or family member and they have to attend the wedding. This looks good. I will add it to my TBR list. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  28. isisthe12th

    So many great Authors and great books to come! Looking forward to a wonderful reading year in 2018. Thank you

  29. Elizabeth T

    Judgment Road and especially The Wedding Date! From the Berkley box of books giveaways, I’m a fan of Maya Banks, Jaci Burton, Lorelei James, etc.

  30. Amber Strickland

    I love all of Nalini Singh’s books, so her name caught my eye. I also noticed Lynn Kurland’s book and realized it’s been a while since I’ve read any of her books, but she is an old favorite.

  31. BookLady

    I am looking forward to Judgment Road and The Other Lady Vanishes. Christine Feehan and Amanda Quick are two of my favorite authors. Thanks for the fantastic giveaway!
