The Billionaire Next Door by Jessica Lemmon - I'm starting to get a little worn down by the billions of billionaire books (and where are the lady billionaires?! I want to read more books about them). But Lemmon's new romance has a citrus-bright vibe and truly enjoyable characters (including a Great Dane named Adonis) that got me past my initial reluctance and sucked me into Tag and Rachel's romance. Determined to prove that he can bring his bar business out of the red and into the black, Tag is distracted by his new, temporary neighbor--and professional bartender--Rachel. She improves his bar ideas; he improves her sex life by getting her past an overly critical ex-boyfriend. But is this enough to build a real relationship on, given that they're both gun shy of commitment? (Spoiler: Yes!!) Fun without being overly frothy, this is a good urban romance choice whether you're into billionaires or not.

Somebody Like You by Lynnette Austin - Originally e-only, this is now available in paperback as well, and is a great choice for lovers of contemporary small-town romances in which hard work, strong character, and doing the right thing wins out in the end. Incognito heiress Annie Montjoy comes to Maverick Junction, Texas, to track down the long-lost half sister of her dying grandfather, but her chance to finally be herself--with no bodyguards, no media, no fake smiles--is the real treasure. Ranch owner Cash Hardeman sees a strong-willed woman who fills a hole in his heart that he never knew he had, but they both have secrets that could destroy the slow-growing trust between them.

Tempting the Earl by Rachael Miles - The third addition to Miles' Muses Salon series sets long-estranged spouses on a collision course while they try to uncover who is manipulating the British government. Olivia decided to walk her own path after her husband abandoned her after her wedding night three years ago, and that path has led to her career as "An Honest Gentleman," the author of persuasive newspaper columns. But her husband, who secretly works for the crown's spy service, believes that An Honest Gentleman doesn't have the country's best interests at heart. So begins a cat-and-mouse game in which love and lives are at stake. The cast of characters is extensive and might be confusing if you haven't read the other books in the series, but that just means you now have three excellent historical romances to read.

Wind River Wrangler by Lindsay McKenna - Bestselling author Shiloh Gallagher is being stalked in Manhattan. Fleeing to the safety and serenity of her friend's ranch in wide-open Wyoming, she is taken under the protective wing of hunky cowboy (and former special ops soldier) Roan Taggart, who builds up her self-confidence while breaking down her heart's walls. This slow-burn romance can be a bit wordy and the mystery isn't very mysterious, but McKenna does a smart job weaving the emotional connections between Roan and Shiloh in this contemporary western romance that will charm those with a weakness for cowboys.
