Julie Garwood’s Wired Rises to the Top

It looks like the biggest hit of the summer, and possibly the year in adult fiction goes to John Grisham for Camino Island. This book is on fire, and it’s selling less than 30,000 print copies a week. At almost 350,000 in print, I would say this book’s sales, combined with digital is over 500,000. Right behind Camino Island for the top spot, s Julie Garwood’s new release- Wired with sales in the mid 20,000 range. Ruth Ware’s The Woman in Cabin 10 is also under rock star status, and around 500,000 in sales combined for this year, with a littler over 25,000 in print this week. Patricia Cornwell returns with Chaos at around 25,000 combined this week, and Danielle Steel’s The Duchess is still holding strong.

For romance, RaeAnne Thanye and Fern Michaels are still holding strong with 10,000 in print sales, and Debbie Macomber, Linda Lael Miller and Christine Feehan aren’t far behind.

One playboy billionaire. One gorgeous virgin. One deserted island…

The moment I lay eyes on Kendra Baxter, I know she has to be mine.

But the daughter of a Navy SEAL doesn’t take orders. She’s been taught skills, strength, and integrity. And God, that’s hot.

So I do what any powerful billionaire CEO would do — I take her on as my intern and plan my aggressive takeover.

Only, fate has other ideas.

My perfectly laid out plan of attack is flawed, and our plane crashes on a deserted island.

Here, who I am doesn’t matter. Money and social power don’t matter. I’m not a CEO anymore. I’m just a man.

Something’s different, I’m different. I still want to claim her, but now I want to protect her too.

We are locked in a fight for survival, and maybe more.

And I will do anything and everything in my power to protect her and make her mine.

Wanna hear a dirty little secret?
No guy has ever gotten me off!
At least, it was a secret, until my boss saw my journal.
Now he’s making me a promise I can’t resist…

I won a war, lost a wife, and raised a beautiful baby girl.
But I left the SEALs scarred and broken. I swore off women for good.
Until Skye.
She’s innocent, curvy, and makes my company tick.
But I discovered her deepest secret: she’s never had an O.
I made her a deal: You fix me and I’ll fix you…
I’m gonna fix her, all right, right there in her own office!
Skye’s gonna learn fast:
There’s more to this contract than meets the eye.

And there’s a first time for everything. It won’t be her last.

The voices in her head have decided to kill her.

Most people joke about hearing voices in their heads. For Chloe Jeffries, they’re real. And as the creative force behind one of the most popular shows on television, she has used the constant flood of voices in her mind to her advantage: fuel for entertainment.

Ex-Special Forces soldier Shane Westman just wants to make it back to his ranch in Wyoming to begin to heal from the horrors of war. The last thing he needs, even as a favor for a good friend, is to take on bodyguard duty of a flighty television writer. But once he does, he realizes there are threats at play he doesn’t understand. And the woman who has somehow begun to thaw his frozen heart is in desperate danger from a menace they can’t see, but is always close.

Someone determined to be the last voice Chloe ever hears.

A gorgeous summer read to escape with this summer!

A Greek island solves all life’s problems…doesn’t it?

Winnie, Stella and Frankie have been best friends forever. When their lives unexpectedly unravel, they spontaneously decide to buy a gorgeous B on a remote Greek island. Drenched in hot sun, Villa Valentina is the perfect escape from reality. But when Winnie meets Jesse, their brooding neighbour, she finds that Greece is full of its own complications – not least how attractive he is…

Smashwords: Lord Heathborough Invests by Adella J Harris, $4.99 Gay Regency Romance.

 

 

Solicitor Robert Clarkson had begun to think he’d never have his own law practice, not when all of the work he was given at Glasson & Co. involved estate matters, until he was assigned to handle the business contracts of Lord Heathborough, son of one of the notorious traitor lords. Lord Heathborough has connections that could lead to the kind of clients Robert finds most interesting, and it doesn’t hurt that he is exceedingly handsome.

Laurence Nelson, Lord Heathborough, had always known his father would destroy his inheritance somehow and had built up a fortune of his own against the day, but he certainly never expected it to come in the form of a plot to kill the king. As the only traitor lord captured, his father was only making it worse enjoying the notoriety and telling the press anything he thought would make the conspirators seem clever, including details of the stock swindle used to finance it. At least his new solicitor isn’t bothered by it, although Laurence is certainly bothered by the handsome Mr. Clarkson.

When the Crown begins to suspect Laurence of using his companies to aid the traitor lords in their stock swindle, he’ll need to decide if he can trust his new solicitor, or if Robert was part of the plot all along.

 

An upcoming release to keep you eye on…

 

(August 8th, Zondervan)

 

With fates bound by a shared tragedy, a reformed gambler from the Colorado Territory and a Southern Belle bent on breaking free from society’s expectations must work together to achieve their dreams—provided that the truth doesn’t tear them apart first.

Sylas Rutledge, the new owner of the Northeast Line Railroad, invests everything he has into this venture, partly for the sake of the challenge. But mostly to clear his father’s name. One man holds the key to Sy’s success—General William Giles Harding of Nashville’s Belle Meade Plantation. But Harding is champagne and thoroughbreds, and Sy Rutledge is beer and bullocks. Sy needs someone to help him maneuver his way through Nashville’s society, and when he meets Alexandra Jamison, he quickly decides he’s found his tutor. Only, he soon discovers that the very train accident his father is blamed for causing is what killed Alexandra Jamison’s fiancee—and what has broken her heart.

Spurning an arranged marriage by her father, Alexandra instead pursues her passion for teaching at Fisk University, the first freedmen’s university in the United States. But family—and Nashville society—do not approve, and she soon finds herself cast out from both. Through connections with the Harding family, Alexandra and Sy become unlikely allies. And despite her first impressions, Alexandra gradually finds herself coming to respect, and even care for this man. But how can she, when her heart is still spoken for? And when Sy’s roguish qualities and adventuresome spirit smack more of recklessness than responsibility and honor?

Sylas Rutledge will risk everything to win over the woman he loves. What he doesn’t count on is having to wager her heart to do it.
