A preview of upcoming Entangled Publishing’s 2021 titles:


We are very excited for what’s to come in 2021, and here are five standout Entangled titles that we cannot wait to share with readers in the coming year!

Follow Me Under by Helen Hardt – 1/26/2021

She gave him control in the bedroom. But is she losing control of her identity? Dating Boston’s billionaire bachelor has opened up a new world for Skye Manning. Opportunities are suddenly everywhere, her new career is flourishing, and she experiences luxury she’s only seen in the pages of magazines. So why does she feel like she’s losing herself?

Braden Black never meant to fall for Skye, and he still tries to resist a relationship he knows he’s not wired for. But not only has Skye awoken something inside him—he’s stirring something dark and forbidden inside his Cinderella. Something even he can’t control…
The Spinster and the Rake by Eva Devon – 2/9/2021

Inspired by the works of Austen with a twist, the marriage game is afoot! From smoldering kisses and financial ruination, to finding the perfect match with whom one can be their true self, Regency England hasn’t been so bold since The Netherfield Ball…

The Duke of Stanhope just wants to be alone. So does Georgiana Bly. But a steamy kiss in the library forces them to wed. Will her terrible family connections ruin any chance they have at love, or will the duke realize that a perfect wife is the last kind of wife he truly desires?
The Poet by Lisa Renee Jones – 3/9/2021

New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones brings a fresh, modern take to the thriller genre that will keep you guessing until the very end.

“The poet is a liar who always speaks the truth.” -Jean Cocteau

Some call him friend or boss.
Some call him husband or dad.
Some call him son, even a favorite son.

But the only title that matters to him is the one the media has given him: The Poet.

A name he earned from the written words he leaves behind after he kills that are as dark and mysterious as the reason he chooses his victims.

One word, two, three, a story in a poem, a secret that only Detective Samantha Jazz can solve. Because he’s writing this story for her.

She just doesn’t know it yet.
Back in the Burbs by Avery Flynn – 3/30/2021

Welcome to Huckleberry Hills, where the grass must be clipped to two and a half inches, all the front doors are painted soft sage or blue chiffon, and the neighbors always want to know what’s going on behind everyone else’s six-foot privacy fence—and thanks to an anonymous neighborhood app filled with all the latest gossip, everyone does…

What happens when your too-sexy-for-his-own-good contractor from hell ends up being your next door neighbor and his dog decides that you’re his person and that breaking into your house is part of the hound dog code? Sure, I consider dognapping until Mr. Have Hammer Won’t Show Up fixes my gutted kitchen, but I’m not that evil of a person. It’s not my fault Schmoopy keeps sneaking into my house and sleeping at the foot of my bed. It’s just too bad that the sweet love muffin’s owner is such a total ass. The cold, hard fact is I need to have the renovations finished in one month or forfeit the house I won in a contest. That’s why I keep finding reasons to help out in the renovation, not because I want to keep looking at his fine ass in those well-worn jeans. And the kiss? Obviously, a side effect of all the paint fumes because he’s the worst, just the absolute worst—something he proves all too well when I find out that if I lose the house, he wins it. There’s no way his uber talented hands or sweet kisses are going to make me forgive him for that.
Hitched to the Gunslinger by Michelle McLean – 5/25/2021

Gray “Quick Shot” Woodson desperately wants to retire from his gunfighting days. His goal in life is to find a nice quiet spot where no one knows him so he can retire in peace and take a good long nap. He’s extremely good at his job, though he goes to great lengths to not have to prove that – which is more difficult than he’d like with people constantly wanting to either learn his secrets or be the next in line to try and kill him. All he wants is peace and quiet.

Instead, he gets Mercy.

Mercy Douglas has been fending off a greedy landowner ever since she’d moved to Desolation, Colorado. But since her father’s death, she’s known no peace. So when Gray comes wandering onto her property in the midst of her latest dispute, she jumps at the opportunity to get a little gun power on her side and announces to everyone that they are engaged.

The last thing Gray wants is to be involved in Mercy’s mess. She’s trouble with a capital T and a bigger pain in the patootie than anyone he’s ever met but damn the woman has gotten under his skin. But now he’s stuck with a wife he didn’t want, in a fight that’s not his, in a town that will never accept him.

Except nothing is as it seems in Desolation. And if Gray and Mercy can survive the fight that’s coming, they both might get everything they ever wanted.

  1. Sonia

    Back in the Burbs sounds good because of the neighborhood app filled with gossip:)

    • Leeza Stetson

      I like that n this group of books touch on several different time periods. The Poet sounds particularly gripping. The covers all gained my attention. These sound like interesting reads. Thanks so much.

  2. EC

    I enjoyed reading all the blurbs, especially Eva Devon (new-to-me author) and Avery Flynn’s humor.

  3. April

    I noticed the book BANE’S CHOICE by Alyssa Day right away because I’ve read books by her before. But all the books sound amazing and someone is going to have a great bunch of books to read. Thanks for the chance to win and Happy Holidays!

  4. Chris Gutowski

    Helen Hardt, Lisa Renee Jones, and Avery Flynn’s books above all caught my attention. They are authors I’ve followed and have wanted to read. The other two books look interesting, but they also look like historical romances and I don’t read them much. Not that I wouldn’t read them, I just don’t most of the time. Although, I read the blurbs above and they are very enticing!

  5. Jennifer Shiflett

    They all sound good, especially Great And Precious Things & Two Date Rule.

    All the books sound good but The Spinster and the Rake caught my attention because I like historical romance.

  14. Pennie Morgan

  15. eawells

  23. SuperWendy

    Oh man, super excited to see a historical western spotlighted! I’ll definitely be checking out Hitched to the Gunslinger by Michelle McLean.

  24. mathlady68

    The Poet by Lisa Renee Jones because it’s already on my wish list for 2021!

  25. laurieg72

    Hitched To a Gunslinger- marriage of convenience is my favorite trope, gunslinger and a single woman in trouble, Desolation is a place I want to visit.

    Back In the Burbs- sounds cute, opposites attract, neighbor/contractor with a friendly dog, woman desperate for help even if it’s his help.

    The Spinster and the Rake- passionate, sexy duke, and a spinster forced to marry CHEMISTRY!

    I read one book by Stefanie London and one by Cyndi Madsen which I liked a lot.

    I’d love to read more of Entangled books!

  26. Janie McGaugh

    The Spinster and the Rake looks intriguing, because it’s a Regency, and Back in the Burbs sounds cute.

  27. kaisquared4

    They all look great but The Spinster and The Rake cover and blurb caught my fancy.

  28. Patricia B.

    I like good suspense stories. The Poet by Lisa Renee Jones sounds like a dark but good entry in that category. Back in the Burbs by Avery Flynn sounds like a light hearted fun read. Westerns are favorites and Hitched to the Gunslinger by Michelle McLean sounds like it combines many of the elements that keep a story interesting and keep you guessing. I like historical books and The Spinster and the Rake by Eva Devon with the familiar Regency forced to wed story line should be entertaining.

  29. flchen1

    Definitely eyeing Michelle McLean’s title–love westerns! And Avery Flynn is a favorite!

  30. rkcjmomma

    Helen Hardt and Lisa Renne Jones and Avery Flynn i love all their books! They are some of my favorite authors they always write amazing books!

  31. Banana cake

    Back to the burbs the dog sounds fun, I’m adding this book to my wishlist

  32. Lilah Chavez

    The Spinster and the Rake by Eva Devon.. I’m on a Regency Romance because I’m on a Bridgerton Binge ! Of course! Omg who’s in love with Simon?
