Title: Unforgivable
Author: Joanna Chambers
Genre: historical romance
Release date: January 15, 2013 by Samhain Publishing


A notorious rake is about to make the ultimate faux pas—fall in love with his own wife.

Gil Truman has eyes only for the beautiful Tilly—until he is forced to marry plain, sickly Rose Davenport to reclaim the lands his father foolishly gambled away. After a disastrous wedding night tainted with his bitterness, he deposits Rose at his remote Northumbrian estate, soothing his guilt with the thought that she need never lay eyes on him again.

Five years after the mortifying wedding night that destroyed all her romantic fantasies, Rose is fed up with hearing second- and third-hand reports of Gil’s philandering ways. She is no longer the shy, homely girl he left behind, but a strong, confident woman who knows how to run an estate. And knows what she wants—her husband, back in their marriage bed.

Gil doesn’t recognize the bold, flirtatious woman he meets at a ball, with or without her mask. Yet he is bewitched and besotted, and their night together is the most passionate he has ever known.

But when he confesses his sins to the beautiful stranger, the truth rips open the old wounds of their blighted history. Threatening any hope of a future together.

Teens in the afterlife (Level 2); a deadly Western loner and the ex-nun who loves him (Wild Burn); a feisty Amazon who burns in every sense (The Impetuous Amazon); lovers adrift in space (Shades of Earth); a wildly adventurous PI and his evil doppelganger sidekick (Mad Gods & Englishmen)… this week’s New Releases list may be much shorter than most, but it’s certainly not short on interesting themes and protagonists.

There’s a good bit of romance of many subgenres this week… historical, contemporary, sci-fi, western, time-travel, and thriller, among a few others. Reading the book descriptions of each actually ended up revealing numerous titles of great potential. Perfect for curling up for winter. If you’re at all like me, you enjoy reading something with an HEA or laughs to keep the mood light. Goodness knows that in the middle of winter, it’s easy to get into the doldrums. So it’s time to find that exciting new read!

. . .

Find something neat amongst the proud few? Do your reading tastes change with the seasons? What are you feelin’ right now at the dead of winter (or high summer, in the Southern Hem.)?

    so many new releases so much to read! A lot of these look wonderful!

    • Alisha January 17, 2013 at 12:52 am

      Don’t they? That’s the coolest part…no matter what’s going on from week to week, there’s always something at least a little bit interesting. Often something(s) very interesting!

    I am entirely without new dragons. This is devastating. But it does allow me time to focus on previously acquired dragons.

    And my big trial. Curses! I wanted more dragons!

    • Alisha January 17, 2013 at 12:51 am

      Indeed… and there shall be dragons showing up over the coming months, if I recall correctly…

    So many books being piled up on my drawer since my book shelf is being over flowed with books and new releases that I haven’t had a chance to read. My tastes don’t really change due to the weather. I think it changes when a new series is written by my favorite authors.

      Ooooh, as in you’ll drop what’s on your waitlist to read something new from a beloved author? i definitely empathize on that one.
