A spotlight on a few upcoming 2017 Berkley Romance titles:

  • THE THING ABOUT LOVE by Julie James
    Chicago-based FBI Special Agents Jessica Harlow and John Shepherd are shocked to find themselves partnered on an undercover case. Six years ago they were rivals at the FBI Academy and neither has fond memories. The assignment should be a simple one, but their he said/she said interpretations of exactly why they clashed at Quantico and the heat behind their nonstop sparring threatens to make the job much more complicated. That’s the thing about love—it never stays undercover.
  • THE GIRL WHO KNEW TOO MUCH by Amanda Quick
    Irene Glasson has fled New York after discovering her employer murdered. She arrives in Los Angeles looking for anonymity and safety. There Irene settles into a quiet life and takes a position at Whispers, a small tabloid newspaper. But murder follows her west when a hot lead about an up-and-coming actor takes Irene to the exclusive Burning Cove Hotel where she finds her source, a beautiful young actress, murdered. Irene is determined to solve the crime and her unlikely partner is Oliver Ward, formerly a famous magician and now the enigmatic owner of the hotel.
  • SILVER SILENCE by Nalini Singh
    Silver Mercant is driven by control and precision, and as the director of a worldwide emergency response network in support of the fledgling Trinity Accord, the last thing she needs is any sort of chaos. Except that’s exactly what Valentin Nikolaev, the alpha of the StoneWater Bears, is – pure chaos. Valentin has never met a woman like Silver – ruled by Silence, her mind is clear of all emotion, but he senses an ember of fire within her. That’s what keeps him climbing apartment buildings to be near her. But when a shadow assassin almost succeeds in poisoning Silver, the stakes become deadly serious…and Silver finds herself in the heart of a powerful bear clan.
  • EVERY DARK CORNER by Karen Rose
    FBI Special Agents Griffin “Decker” Davenport and Kate Coppola are on the cusp of discovering the mastermind behind a human trafficking case and they are determined to bring him to justice. Their frustration at failing to catch him is at the breaking point when suddenly they get a new lead from a very unlikely source. Eighteen-year-old Mallory Martin and her little sister were the victims of an illegal adoption—sold by their addict mother for drugs. But their “benefactor” is not who he appears to be. Mallory has never told his secrets before because the danger to her sister has always been too great. But everyone has a limit to what they can endure and Mallory is ready to talk.
  • GOING DARK by Monica McCarty
    This is the first book in a brand new romantic suspense series! The covert SEAL Team Nine doesn’t technically exist. So when the team gets burned on a mission they know someone has betrayed them.

    I love romantic suspense novels. My bookcase was full of books by Karen Rose, Amanda Quick, Linda Howard, Kay Hooper etc. and then I had to downsize and all my pretty books went to the VA hospital in Phoenix. I would love to start a new collection here in NYC.

  9. orioles4ever

    Always great to have this daily book giveaway contest to join as I look forward to see what books are listed each day.

  10. Linda O'Donnell

    The Thing About Love, set in my favorite city, Chicago, sounds intriguing, with each of the lead characters promising to be strong and independent yet vulnerable to the pull of love’s forces. I hope the city is featured prominently and the protagonists prove to be worthy of our interest and each other.

  11. MaryEve

    I love Wendy Wax’s TEN BEACH ROAD and would be delighted to add more of her books to the shelves. Great box o’ books here!! Want each one.
