Must be Spring....

Since our thoughts are supposedly turning to romance at this time of the year, the library has put a bunch of new romance novels on the shelf.
Mistletoe Bay, by Marcia Evanick, is a single-mom and burly handyman story set in Maine in December. Jennie Wright has three kids and a brand new business, and Cooper Armstrong is the brand-new UPS guy who is happy to help her fix up her house and raise up her three sons.
Accidentally Yours, by Susan Mallery, involves a relationship between a billionaire who needs to hook up with a wholesome single mom to improve his image and a single mom who needs a chunk of money to cure her dying son.
Big Girls Don't Cry, by Cathie Linz, revolves around a plus-size model who returns to the small town where she grew up. She ends up working as a receptionist for sexy cad Cole, who used to taunt her mercilessly in school. But now he finds himself falling in love with her sexy curves.
Dark Heart, by Sarah Brophy, is set in 12th century England. Zetta is a beautiful pickpocket, but she chooses the wrong target when she ambushes Sir Gareth de Hughues.
Down and Dirty, by Sandra Hill, features a time-traveling Viking warrior maiden and a maverick Navy SEAL. It's worth thumbing through this book just to read the horrible dialogue: a mixture of macho Navy slang and 10th century (?) Norse insults. Her response after their first steamy encounter is "In truth, methinks 'twould not merit a repeat." Hear, hear.
