Preorder Gems is a new feature here at Keeper Bookshelf – I’m test driving it a bit early as I originally intended this for the New Year. I don’t often place preorders for books unless it’s a favorite author in a series I don’t want to miss. Usually that’s because I work on a book budget, and I know that many authors have that first week of publication special prices on their titles, so I wait to see what it’s going to cost me. In other cases I know from the beginning that a particular publishing house never, ever discounts a title during that first week – the price is what the price is forever, unless maybe a special code that’s across the entire line. And… admittedly, sometimes I’m contacted by an author for a book review request and I make the decision to purchase my own copy or not…. and honestly, that depends on the book budget, and whether it’s a series that I believe I’ll follow through to the end especially in a multi-author series.
So, this morning I just received two preordered books, both from Harlequin. One is the next book in a series I’ve followed, the other is the start of a brand new series. Let’s check them out:

Single mom Kelsey knows all too well that the scars on the inside run the deepest. She needs to move on from her own tragic past, but the Sullivan ranch is starting to feel a little too much like home. And she can’t stop thinking about her wounded—and gorgeous—patient. Could Nash be the cure for her own broken heart?
