Preorder Gems: Best Man for the Wedding Planner by Donna Alward & The Rancher’s Homecoming by Anna J. Stewart

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:

Wedding planner Adele Hawthorne is prepared for wedding hitches…but not for the best man to be Dan — her ex! Thrown together at every turn, Adele can’t escape their chemistry or the fact that her heart-breaking reason for leaving him all those years ago hasn’t changed. With just days before Dan leaves their winter wonderland, can he convince Adele they still have something worth fighting for?

Best Man for the Wedding Planner will be cross posted to my pure Romance blog, Romance is Ageless, as well as here on Keeper Bookshelf.

I love getting in on the beginning of a series, or even a duet set of stories.  So, this one is perfect for my tastes in Romance as well as the first story in a group of Romances that I will most likely follow through on to the end.

Ten years after he eloped with Katie Montgomery’s sister, Chance Blackwell is back in Montana to sell his family ranch. Katie could lose her job and the only home she’s known. But the loyal cowgirl is keeping a secret that could shatter trust and jeopardize her future with the widowed musician and her toddler niece. Unless Chance’s growing affection for her and all things Blackwell can earn Katie his forgiveness—and his love.

The Rancher’s Homecoming is part of a multi-author series that I’ve been following both here and on my Modern Western Romance blog, Lovin’ A Cowboy Romance.  I’ve gotten caught up in The Return of the Blackwell Brothers series – it’s rather addicting.

That’s it for today.  I’ll be doing more preordering in 2019 as there are several series that I’ve definitely gotten caught up in and will not want to miss a story in.  The reviews for these new titles will be live in a few days, and cross posted to the genre specific blog as well.
