A sneak peak at Entangled’s  Most Anticipated 2020 Releases:  

Loud Mouth by Avery Flynn – 2/17/20

I never meant to say a word, not one single word.

But I did. And now, because of my blog, everyone knows that Ice Knights hockey star Ian Petrov’s best friend and fellow player is actually his half brother—hello, hockey Hall of Famer dad who couldn’t keep his jeans zipped.

That wouldn’t be such a big deal if Ian knew. He didn’t, and boy howdy is he pissed. And who is he most mad at? Oh sure, he’s upset with his dad and former best friend/brother from another mother, but most of his ire is with me. It’s definitely a case of hating the messenger.

And what could make it worse? How about the two of us being trapped together in a remote cabin after a massive blizzard. Neither of us can leave. Just us, the snow, his resentment, and OMG sexual tension so thick it would take a snowplow to break through it.

I’ve got to get out of here before I do something even dumber than I’ve already done and kiss the sexy, snarly grump with his misplaced anger and perfect pecs. That would be the worst, the absolute worst. That’s why I’m not going to do it. Nope. Really. So why can’t I stop imagining what it would be like?
Great and Precious Things by Rebecca Yarros – 2/25/20

How do you define yourself when others have already decided who you are?

Six years ago, when Camden Daniels came back from war without his younger brother, no one in the small town of Alba, Colorado, would forgive him—especially his father. Cam left, swearing never to return.

But a desperate message from his father brings it all back. The betrayal. The pain. And the need to go home again.

But home is where the one person he still loves is waiting. Willow. The one woman he can never have. Because there are secrets buried in Alba that are best left in the dark.

If only he could tell his heart to stay locked away when she whispers she’s always loved him, and always will…

Great and Precious Things is a heart-wrenching story about family, betrayal, and ultimately how far we’re willing to go on behalf of those who need us most.
Crave by Tracy Wolff – 4/7/20

My whole world changed when I stepped inside the academy. Nothing is right about this place. Or the other students in it. Here I am, a mere mortal among gods…or monsters. I still can’t decide which of these warring factions I belong to, if I belong at all. I only know the one thing that unites them is their hatred of me.

And then there’s Jaxon Vega. A prince. A vampire. An annoyingly kissable boy who hasn’t felt a thing in over a hundred years. But there’s a darkness to him. A secret craving that threatens to consume him whole.

Which could spell death for us all.

Because Jaxon walled himself off for a reason. And now someone wants to wake a sleeping monster, and I’m wondering if I was brought here intentionally—as the bait.
Bane’s Choice by Alyssa Day – 7/28/20

The most powerful vampire alive, Bane learned a few things in his more than three hundred years: the Nephilim want to kill him, the team he has assembled are the greatest fighters alive, and the best place to hide the truth is in plain sight. Thus, the Vampire Motorcycle Club was formed. But when the VMC’s only human friend almost dies, a beautiful doctor threatens Bane’s long-cherished isolation … and his control.

Dr. Ryan Sinclair always tries to believe six impossible things before breakfast, but a career in medicine often challenges her ability to hope. But the night an intensely powerful stranger somehow compels her to stop protecting her patient—and then disappears—his parting words that he’s coming for her feel like a promise … or a threat. And now Bane must choose. Risk the heart he’s kept under lock for centuries or put Ryan’s life at risk and pull her deeper into his world of the night…
Follow Me Darkly by Helen Hardt – 9/29/20

#1 NY Times bestselling author Helen Hardt’s scintillating new series is a deliciously sexy, modern erotic romance about public personas and the secrets we keep buried beneath the surface.

I’ve been a control freak all my life.

Yet he makes me want to give up control.
