With the last Chaos series book, RIDE STEADY, out from Kristen Ashley, I decided to dedicate this week’s On The Shelf to motorcycle club books. Motorcycle books are a trope that many love. We are fortunate enough to have a wide range of motorcycle books to choose from. Our choices run the gamut from gritty and sometimes scary to a kinder, sweeter variety. Let’s sally forth with the books on my shelf.
So excited to present the cover of NO INTEREST IN LOVE by Cassie Mae!

School is out, days are long and hot – and it’s the perfect time to pick up a stack of beach reads. You know the ones we’re talking about: those light, perfect books to pack in your pool totes or vacation. Small town romances are great summer reads, and books set in exotic locations can be as well. Anything set on the beach or water usually fits the bill. But best of all to take along on summer vacation is a book that helps you truly escape and get away. Here are a few of my favorites.
We are thrilled to reveal the cover of Samantha Kane's CALLING THE PLAY!
"This is the second full length book in Megan Frampton’s Dukes Behaving Badly series and I have to say, our newly anointed Duke, Nicholas Smithfield, is not behaving badly at all. I mean, once we retrieve him from a little foursome action at a house of ill-repute at the beginning of the book, Nicholas is a perfectly mannered and a proper gentleman!"
Club Sin comes alive once again in this decadent new erotic romance from USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy. A dedicated cop, Sawyer Quinn blows off steam by immersing himself in his role as a Master at the hottest club in Las Vegas. But when Sawyer goes after the perp who brutally beat his sister, he teams up with Chloe Nash, a sexy private investigator who awakens a sweet new need: to keep her to himself, away from the dungeon of Club Sin. Chloe is beautiful, smart, and too innocent for the BDSM lifestyle. Sawyer’s never wanted a woman like this before. Is her love worth swearing off the one thing that keeps him sane?

In honor of June being LGBT Pride month, I wanted to celebrate a few of the exceptional gay romances I’ve read this year. This is by no means a comprehensive list, more of a compendium of a few really excellent books I’ve read this year.
This week we're excited about new releases from Maggie McGinnis, Megan Frampton, Vanessa Kelly, Laura Kaye, Kristen Ashley, Jill Shalvis, Regina Cole, and Ryan Winfield. What are you reading?
"Over the years I’ve read a lot of books. I’ve read mysteries and thrillers, historical, paranormal, urban fantasy, young adult, contemporary and literary fiction. I’ve enjoyed most of them too. A few left me wanting, and some have stuck with me over the years. These are the stories that end up on my shelf for life instead of being passed on to friend."
We are so excited to share the newest Worth the Fight book from Sidney Halston...FIGHTING DIRTY!
It might be true that you can't judge a book by its cover, but that doesn't meant we can't play favorites! And so we share the covers that got us the most hot and bothered this month.
"This is Kate Baxter’s debut and she really knocks it out of the park. If you are a paranormal romance lover, I strongly suggest you check this series out."
"Some people think you need to like sports in order to enjoy a good sports romance. To those who wonder this, I ask, do you like a hot, sexy romance? Do you like a strong and muscular athletic hero? Do you like journeying with the hero and heroine as they strive toward their HEA despite obstacles being thrown in their way? If you answered yes to any of these, then you’ll like a sports romance!"

Paranormal romance is one of my all time favorite sub-genres. I love it: the world-building, the danger, the claiming and mating -- it’s the ultimate in reading escapism. We all know about the basics of paranormal romance (PNR) so this week’s On The Shelf is offering you some ideas that you may not have thought of.
