Then He Kissed Me by Laura Trentham - Poignant without being soggy, this small-town romance reunite two long-ago best friends who were initially separated by family tragedy and later by career aspirations. He left town to be a professor; she stayed and has opened up her own gym. Their rekindled friendship soon pivots toward something more, but Tally is afraid that if she loses him again, her heart will never survive. Both protagonists are charming and heart-wrenching at once, and you'll cheer them on to find the happy ending they so deserve.

Hottest Mess (Stark International) by J. Kenner - This book is an 11 out of 10 on the sex chart - and is not for the unadventurous - but its on our best-of list for the gripping plot that puts our hero and heroine in peril even as they sort through their new, forbidden relationship and the revelations about their kidnapping 17 years ago. This is book two of three for the couple, so don't be surprised by the cliffhanger ending. All will be revealed in October in Sweetest Taboo.

A Gift for Guile by Alissa Johnson - In this witty Victorian-set romance, the insults fly fast between former thief Esther Walker-Bales and the "Thief Taker Almighty" Sir Samuel Brass. Esther's days of criminality are now behind her and Samuel is her brother-in-law's best friend. Still, distrust runs deep between them. As someone from Esther's past tries to pull her family into trouble, Esther and Samuel need to find common ground even while they verbally spar like Olympian duelers.

Even Odds by Elia Winters - When Isabel and Caleb met at gaming convention DiceCon and start a weekend-only relationship, neither realizes (at first) that Caleb is up for a job at Isabel's company. Broken trust, relationship quicksand, and the difficulties of an office romance are pitfalls they awkwardly leap in this geeky romance that fires up hot and fast but finishes with steady burn you'll believe in.

Seconds to Live by Melinda Leigh - Leigh's previous Scarlet Falls thrillers have consistently delivered high-tension romantic suspense, and this title keeps that promise as well. Former ne'er-do-well Mac Barrett returns to Scarlet Falls when his rawhide-tough father dies, only to nearly run over a woman standing naked in the road on a rainy night. After crashing into a tree to avoid her, he returns to find her gone. Police detective Stella Dane is already investigating another murder, and as Stella and Mac team up to figure out who is stalking women in Scarlet Falls, Mac slowly lets down the defensive walls he's built up over the years. Spine-chilling suspense that's perfect for a steamy July.
