A spotlight on a few upcoming 2018 Forever Romance titles:


Zero Hour by Megan Erickson (on sale: January 30, 2018)

Hacker extraordinaire Roarke Brennan lives each hour – each breath – to avenge his brother’s murder. His first move: put together a team of the best coders he knows. They’re all brilliant, specialized, and every one an epic pain in his ass. Only now Wren Lee wants in too, threatening to upset their delicate balance. The girl Roarke never allowed himself to want is all grown up with sexy confidence and a dark past… and she’s the wild card he can’t control.

Roarke might still think she’s a kid, but Wren’s been to hell and back. Nothing and nobody can stop her-especially the tatted-up, cocky-as-all-hell hacker. But when years of longing and chemistry collide, Wren and Roarke discover that revenge may be a dish best served blazing hot.

A Duke in the Night by Kelly Bowen (on sale: February 20, 2018)

Duke. Scoundrel. Titan of business. August Faulkner is a man of many talents, not the least of which is enticing women into his bedchamber. He’s known-and reviled-for buying and selling companies, accumulating scads of money, and breaking hearts. It’s a reputation he wears like a badge of honor, and one he intends to keep.

Clara Hayward, the headmistress of the Haverhall School for Young Ladies, on the other hand, is above reproach. Yet when she’s reunited with August all she can think of is the way she felt in his arms as they danced a scandalous waltz ten long years ago. Even though her head knows that he is only back in her life to take over her family’s business, her heart can’t help but open to the very duke who could destroy it for good.

One and Only by Jenny Holiday (on sale: February 27, 2018)

With her bridezilla friend on a DIY project rampage, bridesmaid Jane Denning will do anything to escape–even if it means babysitting the groom’s troublemaker brother before the wedding. It should be a piece of cake, except the “cake” is a sarcastic former soldier who is 100% wicked hotness and absolutely off-limits.

Cameron MacKinnon is ready to let loose after returning from his deployment. But first he’ll have to sweet talk the ultra-responsible Jane into taking a walk on the wild side. Turns out, riling her up is the best time he’s had in years. But what happens when the fun and games start to turn into something real?

With This Man by Jodi Ellen Malpas (March 20, 2018):

Life is good for Jesse “The Lord” Ward. If it weren’t for the fact that he’s turning fifty this year, life would be perfect. He still has the charm, he’s still in great shape, and he still reduces his wife, Ava, to a pool of desire with a mere look. He’s in full control, just how he likes it. But Jesse’s perfect world falls apart when a terrible accident lands Ava in hospital with a head injury that causes her to lose her memory of the last fifteen years. Now Jesse must do whatever it takes to support his beloved wife and help her find her memories-their memories-and fall madly, passionately in love all over again. But he has no idea someone is plotting to destroy their family.

More than Words by Mia Sheridan (On sale: June 12, 2018)

As children, Jessica Creswell and Callen Hayes’s friendship was an escape from the darkness that surrounded them at home. Then one day, Callen never returned to the secret spot where they’d always met. Jessica, who had no way to find him, was heartbroken. Years later, she’s living in Paris and working as a translator of ancient documents, and Callen has found fame and fortune as a musical composer, when their paths collide once again.

Callen has never forgotten the girl he left behind. Back then, Jessica and music were the only things that brought him any measure of peace. Now, memories of his past make him feel unworthy of any love or affection. But there’s something about Jessica. Something that calls to the boy he used to be and the man he could be. With her, Callen sees the chance for a new life. If only he’s brave enough to take it.

  4. Deborah Wellenstein

    I’m intrigued by A Duke in the Night-because who wouldn’t want a duke in the night?

  5. Texas Book Lover

    They all should terrific but if I had to pick one I’d probably go with With This Man…

  6. belindaegreen

    I’m a fan of military romances when a “just have fun fling” turns into unexpected love. It’s exciting to watch the journey to HEA. One and Only by Jenny Holiday caught my eye for that reason. It’s now on my long TBR list. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  7. wendy rinebold

    Sugarplum Way and Tall Christmas Cowboy look great because I love Christmas stories.

  8. Audrey Stewart

    I am looking forward to reading Zero Hour by Megan Erickson. I am always looking to read a hacker story.

  9. Joanne B

    They all sound fantastic. Can’t wait to pick them up, get in a comfy chair, and read them. Thanks for the chance.

  10. Caro

    ‘Zero Hour’ by Megan Erickson. I love her books and I can hardly wait for this new series.

  11. 3rsthreers

    More Than Words has my curiosity peaked. Childhood friends, strange disappearance and years later a chance of romance. Can’t wait to read it!!

  12. Teresa Williams

    Tall Christmas Cowboy By Carolyn Brown .I Love her and her books.The other authors are new to me

  13. Juli Huber Hall

    Zero Hour looks really good, the words “Hacker extraordinaire” caught my attention. Looks like a romance/suspense and those are my favorite

  14. Kay Garrett

    With This Man by Jodi Ellen Malpas sounds amazing. How awesome it sounds, if not for the memory loss part, to be able to relive life with your one true love. Add to that the mystery and excitement of trouble in paradise from outsiders. Making this a book that I’d love to read. Well, I’d love to read all of them but this would be my first pick.

  15. Karina Angeles

    Zero Hour and A Duke in the Night. I’d love to read Zero Hour to see how Wren gets Roarke to see her as a woman and an equal. I want to read A Duke in the Night to read how August and Clara rekindle their relationship and if Clara keeps her school.

  16. sandramastersauthor

    NO OTHER DUKE WILL DO BY GRACE Burrows. I’m a sucker for any hero who’s a duke. What can I say? I love Regency and all it pretends to be. It’s like living in a fairy tale you want to read.

  17. ELF

    I’m a fan of Grace Burrowes, so I was happy to see one of her titles in the bundle. Many of the other authors are new to me, and i look forward to getting to know their works! Thanks for the giveaway.

  18. Sharon Extine

    All the books sound good but if I had to pick only one it would be: “One And Only.” This sounds like a fun read. Will be looking forward to when it comes out in February.
    Thanks for bringing all the books to my attention.

  19. BookLady

    I enjoy reading historical romance and A Duke in the Night by Kelly Bowen sounds fascinating. Thanks for the fantastic giveaway!

  20. Patricia B.

    I enjoy historical romances, so A Duke in the Night by Kelly Bowen would be my first choice. It will be interesting to see what happens when their paths cross again. With This Man by Jodi Ellen Malpas is of interest. It is nice to se a romance with an older hero and heroine. The intrigue in the plot also appeal. I like reunion stories and More than Words by Mia Sheridan has many interesting facets to the story line. It sounds like it will be a good read. All the authors listed for next year are new to me. Those you are offering in the giveaway are old “friends” except for Victoria Denault. Needless to say it is a prize package I would thoroughly enjoy.

  21. Shannon Capelle

    I love Jodi Ellen Malpas shes great and love her books!
    These are all great authors and books also!

  22. Lilah Chavez

    Looking forward to buying all of them!

    But I’m actually looking forward more to reading Megan’s! “Zero Hour”!

    Just the other day I saw “Hackers” , I haven’t seen that movie in forever! Such an awesome movie! And this sorta reminds me of it i kinda have Angelina Jolie and Johnny Lee Miller in my head

  23. Terrill R.

    I’m really excited for More Than Words by Mia Sheridan. I am a fan of her indie published series and now this second published book with Sourcebooks.

  24. Jean White

    I can’t wait to read With This Man by Jodi Ellen Malpas. Also have Mia Sheridan on by tbr.

  25. KermitsGirl

    Zero Hour by Megan Erickson sounds right up my alley as a gamer girl – and I love Kelly Bowen, so OF COURSE A Duke in the Night sounds AMAZING.

  26. LauraJJ

    The One and Only by Jenny Holiday sounds really good! I love when they are centered around weddings…and over time it grows into something more! Cannot wait to read this one!

  27. Vanessa Primer

    With This Man sounds intriguing – plus who does not love a good find your way home lost memories story?
