Love’s Rhythm by Lexxie Couper

His music moves the world. Can his love move her heart?

Nick Blackthorne knows all about words of love. They’re the reason he’s the world’s biggest rock star. The irony? He turned his back on love a long time ago, lured away by the trappings of fame.

An invitation to a friend’s wedding is a stark reminder of how meaningless his life has become. When he enters that church, there’s only one woman he wants on his arm—the one he walked out on a lifetime ago. But first he has to find her, even if all she accepts from him is an apology.

Kindergarten teacher Lauren Robbins once had what every woman on the planet desires. Nick. Their passion was explosive, their romance the stuff of songs…and it took fifteen years to get over him. Then out of the blue Nick turns up at her door, and all those years denying her ache for him are shattered with a single, smoldering kiss.

This looks to be a good week for e-only book releases. There’s quite a bit of promising stuff above, if you ask me. A Hint of Frost looks to be an amazing fantasy romance (and look out for a review of it here at BLI in a few weeks); The Guy’s A Loser Detective Agency has an awesome cover and sounds like it’ll be a fun romp; and of course, Love’s Rhythm will surely rock (pun absolutely intended) if the blurb and excerpt are any indication. Faustus Resurrectus is certainly intriguing, billed as an “urban occult thriller.” I’m in! And as for major hardcopy releases, welp, there are two words: Nora Roberts. ^_^

Something new find its way onto your radar this week? Are you a big reader of e-book only releases?

    Somehow this neewk nothing sparks my fancy :-/

    I’m curious about A Hint of Frost, and Springsweet has a beautiful cover (oh and love the background on the cover of Love and Splendor), but I’m not excited about any of this week’s release. Could be a good thing after the last week’s heavy releases 😉

    Usually a big reader though in the last few weeks I’ve been in a funk. I love Nora Roberts and looking forward to The Witness. I wouldn’t mind trying A Hint of Frost by Hailey Edwards too.

    Nothing for me this week, except the Nora Roberts book. But I usually buy those second hand, as they so very often are re-issues with new titles of books I already own, and that is a costly irritant.

    I like the look of The Last Echo’s cover. And I’ve been so into the J.D. Robb, it’s been a while since I’ve read her Nora Roberts books. Witness looks good. 🙂

    That White Vengeance cover lady looks exactly like the cover from Ilona Andrews’ Silver Shark.

    • Susan April 18, 2012 at 12:02 am

      A couple of weeks ago, Ilona Andrews said it was the same lady on both covers. She had gotten the image from stock and worked up the Silver Shark cover all by herself. Frankly, I think her end product looks better that the professional job.

      The Hailey Edwards and Kimberly Derting books look like possibilities. The Patricia Hagan book is a reprint of an older (1987!) title. I’m a bit intrigued since it has a Russian setting, but I may wait ’til some reviews get posted.

    I like the blurb on Love’s Rhythm. Nice cover too.
