I always adore these previews. Buzz books always make my TBR pile grow to out of control proportions. Romance is always a tricky genre for me. I may just be a picky reader, but I feel like while I LOVE romance, I have trouble finding the perfect romance novel to read. 
A few of the romance novels I will be giving a chance, thanks to this preview are: 

The Memory House by Rachel Hauck. First of all, that cover is AMAZING and deserving of all the heart eye emojis. After seeing this pretty cover, I googled Rachel Hauck (having never read any of her work before) and discovered that ALL of her books have the most incredible covers. I need them all. I am for sure a  sucker for a pretty cover. Pretty cover aside, the book itself pulled me in with its fast paced introduction in which we discover that one of the leading ladies is a police officer. I can hardly wait to devour this one. This brief preview was not nearly enough for me. 


On Magnolia Lane by Denise Hunter. So, Denise Hunter is always amazing (and is another author with incredible cover art). The fact that a new Denise Hunter book is coming was really all I needed to know for this one to make my must read pile. Hunter writes incredible characters that draw you in and leave you missing them.

The Rancher by Kate Pearce. Thiiis is definitely a guilty pleasure read for me. Who DOESN'T want to read a great cowboy romance?! A novel with a strong woman and a grumpy cowboy? Yes please.

Last but not least, Solace Island by Meg Tilly.  This is a thriller romance. Which is possibly my very favorite cross over genre. I love a fast paced story that gets my heart thumping, especially if there is a guarantee of a HEA. This particular thriller romance promises to be a fun read. The dialogue in the sample is snappy and fun, and I can hardly wait to read the full novel.

I had never read a Buzz Book for Romance. Glad I have now! I will continue to read them so as to stay up-to-date on all things new in the romance genre.

Romance is a genre I enjoy and I have some favourite books and series from when I was younger like the Wild Hearts series by Cherie Bennett or the Point Romance series as well as the Making Out/ Boyfriends and Girlfriends series by K.A. Applegate. 

As an adult, I have less pure romance on my shelves but still enjoy the genre. I have even tried writing some romance into my own books. 

With romance being one of my less-chosen genres because I did not know about well known or recommended romance authors, I requested this book out of my own curiosity of wanting to know what books in the genre are currently out there. 

I'm glad I did request it as I came away with good recommendations. The excerpts were a good, quick and effective way to get an idea for each author's style since they were all new authors to me. 

Whether you read a lot of romance, are looking for something new or are new to the genre, this book is for you. 

4 stars. Thanks to the authors and publisher for my ARC in exchange for an honest and voluntary review.

I really liked the chance to find out if these stories were what I wanted to read. I have to say there were several I will be looking for.

Lots and lots of interesting teasers from a variety of upcoming new romance releases. Many have links to the full version at the end of the sample. Good variety and something for most romance readers. Found it very interesting and helpful.

I enjoyed reading the excerpts of other books within this book. It gave a window into several books that I was interested in continuing to read. I was able to request them at the end of each excerpt if I was interested. I was approved to read four of them which I am in the process of doing. It is a great way to find new books. Some of the authors I was familiar with but most I was not. I will be looking for more books by the authors and hopefully more editions of Buzz Books in the future.

This is a great way to see what is on the horizon, and get a sneak peak of some of the new books coming out. My favorite of these is hands down is In a Badger Way. I was really into reading it when *poof*... that was the end of the sneak peek. I can't wait for the book for itself.

The excerpts in this guide were very helpful in our romance collection development.  Thank you.  We hope that the guide continues to be published.

Great preview of published titles and upcoming titles for the 2018 year. I was familiar with many of the authors listed. If this was done for debut romance novelists as well, I know I would use it.

Very nice diverse selection of romance reads, as per usual from Publishers Lunch.  I usually find something that intrigues me whenever Buzz Books comes out with new releases to watch, and I found at least five authors in this selection that I plan on reading the full galley for.   Jane Feather's "Tempt Me With Diamonds" will be my first read from the author, but it interested me given the circumstances of the heroine in the first few chapter encountering someone she didn't expect living in her brother's house - her old flame.  Priscilla Oliveras had my attention with "Their Perfect Melody" because I liked Diego and Lili's personalities to start.  I have never read a full book by Helen Hardt, so I'm giving "Unchained" a try from this collection - in sum a vampire on the run from his captive master meeting an ER nurse..  The premise and the excerpt intrigued me enough to give it a try. A few others I requested as galleys include Judith McNaught and Meg Tilly.  In the end, I'm glad that I had the chance to peruse this collection and am looking forward to reading more from the authors here, as well as future Publisher's Lunch compilations.

If you are interested in knowing what constitutes the romance genre and what books are forthcoming, this is an excellent resource.  In addition to an introduction, there are lists of books by subcategory, for example, paranormal romance, so you can easily find your interest.  There are also a number of summaries and excerpts to read.  Romance readers should enjoy this publication.

I loved this collection of book excerpts and reviews for up and coming books. I loved the previous Buzz Books collections, and once again this one had me scoping out a bunch of new books, and adding them all to my TBR. I am most excited for Magnolia Lane, and Intercepted. 

A huge thank you to NetGalley for sending me a digital copy of these book previews in exchange for an honest review. I truly appreciate it!
