As always, high-quality sampler. It's a great way for me to get into romance novels, as I've never been much of a romance reader. Will be purchasing some of the books listed in here. Thanks so much to Publishers Lunch for the excerpts!

This is a very helpful tool with advance publication information and excerpts for forthcoming novels. A very helpful way to plan purchasing decisions.

Ah the Romance Book Buzz. Okay, I was a little late on this one. Most of the books were already out by the time I read it, but still helpful. I found a lot of books I really wanted to read and the best part was I could actually just go out and get them right then!

As always, NOT disappointed by Buzz Books!  Even though it was 2017 titles I want to get them all!  They look so interesting!  I have to get most of them! 
Love stories, who doesn't like those?!  You find here summaries, not just a few lines but pages, to make sure you will or won't love a book! 
The list goes on and on!  Just to name a few I want to read from this "buzz books" : Cowboy's legacy, Wilde in love, Mess with me, Hot and Badgered, a daring arrangement,... ... ...

Just wow!  I want to read most of them, if not ALL of them but there is just so much time ;)

Thank you so much for posting these to look through. It introduces me to books I may not pick up before and gives me a chance to get a taste for what's to come later this year. It gets me so excited! I wouldn't have known about these otherwise. Some of the romance stories were a bit cheesy to me, but that is a personal opinion. I may not recommend all of them to a friend just because of that reason.

Buzz Books are always a pleasure, and I snatch them up as quickly as possible. 
Recently I have been trying to expand the types of books that I read, so seeing that there was a new Buzz Books specifically for Romance, seemed like a great place to start finding recommendations. 
I was not disappointed. The variety of types of Romance novels makes this a great place to start building a TBR list.

Over all, I was quite surprised to find that a large number of these novels seem to be romance thrillers, rather than strictly romance as I expected. I found the romance/thrillers to be the most appealing personally. 

The books that I am most excited about are: 


The Duchess Deal- Tessa Dare. I have read one of Dare's books previously and I must say, this woman is laugh out loud funny. Like snorting-on-public-transit-trying-to-swallow-a-laugh funny. One line in the preview that grabbed my attention was "Charming princes weren't always what they seemed. Shining armor went out of fashion with the crusades. And if fairy Godmothers existed, hers was running several years late". The story looks super fun. Charming, funny, just what I like in a romance read.

Blue Ridge Sunrise- Denise Hunter. I am a major sucker for lost loves reuniting. And family dramas. And stories about surprise, unwanted inheritance. Well, this book has all of that, and a rude boyfriend. I can hardly wait to read it.

Pretend You're Safe - Alexandra Ivy. Last but not least, Pretend You're Safe seems like the perfect thriller. The flooded setting makes me want to curl up with a warm blanket and a cup of tea. Not to mention the author had me nervous just in this brief preview about washed up bodies and a serial killer watching his prey from VERY VERY near by. I'm considering this one a must read.

I love Buzz Books! There were a few books that are not what I usually read (Historical & Christian) but I did discover a few new authors I wouldn’t have otherwise. Usually I can tell in the first few pages if I’m going to enjoy a book or not, so this was perfect for me. Thank you netgalley for giving me the opportunity to read this.

I always look forward to and enjoy reading the Buzz Books Monthly about upcoming releases! I usually find myself adding many of the featured books to my "to read" list on GoodReads. This edition wasn't any different. This edition got me particularly interested in Misadventures of a City Girl, Seeing Red, The Woman Who Couldn't Scream, and Monster in the Closet.

A good guide to up and coming romances.
Enticing excerpts and introductions to works I’m looking forward to reading and new authors I haven’t yet read.

This is an excellent reference guide to know what new publications will be coming out soon in one of my (and maybe yours) favorite genre: romance. It gives you access to multiple excerpts and can help you chose which books you want to read and define your TBR.

I really enjoyed this anthology or sampler of the year's most anticipated romance novels. The novels included in this book are only samples. I discovered some new authors that I want to check out and this ebook helped me decide what my next romance novel purchases will be. I definitely recommended this novel to romance reader newbies and seasoned romance readers alike. You won't be disappointed.

The book is great to check previews of upcoming romance books.  It gives a excerpt of each of the books.  A good way to see if you would enjoy a certain new to you author.  I see a few books I would for sure put on my list to check out.

I loved this. It was pretty informative and interesting. Perfect to add new books to your lists, especially if you don't know where to start, like me. Not only it has a long list of recommendations (with different subgenres), it also has some excerpts. It is like everything in one place.

Authors renowned for one genre are stepping into another genre. There's a lot of romantic suspense--contemporary, contemporary Western and inspirational. You'll find historical romance in a variety of time frames, including some new directions from beloved authors, plus one with a touch of suspense. Beyond genre and subgenre, romance aficionados will find favorite themes, too--second chance at love; Beauty and the Beast; enemies to lovers; unrequited love. This sampler has nearly every subgenre, too--historical romances set in different eras and some with a touch of paranormal.The book is amazing. When I started reading I couldn't put it down I reading the book.They are the magnifysent writers.I cannot wait to read more of there books.Keep up the great work.
