New Releases, June 26th

Wow! There are over 200 fiction titles with release dates of June 26th. Yay! Unfortunately for me… I’m not near a bookstore 🙁 But I am an excellent online shopper. If you are close to an actual bookstore today- I am so jealous! Last week I was in New York and went to a bookstore 3 times and came home with a bag full of new books *sigh* Bliss.

Ok, as always, if there is a new book that isn’t in my database please, please contact me and I will do my best to add it. Cause honestly, I want to know! I thought of the database originally for me because I wanted to know what books were coming out on what days and couldn’t find any place online that pulled all the data together the way I wanted. After I decided to go to the trouble of hiring a programmer I thought why not share the knowledge… My geeks say they are still working on a wish list function (cause I want that desperately!!!) and a way for me to manually add indie and small press pubs to the list. I want the list to be as complete as possible cause I loathe to miss out on a new book. I LOVE books.

Oh! Today, 6/26, is the final day to enter the Eden Bradley giveaway. Check it out 🙂

There are 209 titles listed in my New Fiction Release database for today! Click here to see the complete list.

These are the books that jumped out at me.

Eden Bradley New Release + Excerpt + Review + Contest!!!


Eden Bradley

Available June 19, 2012

He would move heaven and earth to protect her


Was she heaven-sent…or more heartbreak waiting to happen?

Haunted by a military mission that ended in personal tragedy, Declan Byrne still bears a soldier’s scars. As a park ranger on the secluded Mendocino coast, he guards his heart while standing ready for anything. Anything except a beautiful, ethereal woman with a mysterious past, falling from the cliffs to the rocks below.

Angel, as Declan decides to call her, has no memory of what happened. But as her body heals, disturbing dreams emerge. In Declan’s protective care, Angel feels safe to act on the undeniable passion between them, without the threats from old, unnameable demons. And, in time, she senses Declan needs her as desperately as she needs him. But when her past returns with a vengeance, Declan must decide just how much he’s willing to risk in order to keep the woman he loves safe.

The Book Tart Episode 6

My rambly review of Nalini Singh’s newest Psy/Changeling book Tangle Of Need. I adore this series and loved the relationship that grew between by Adria and Riaz. Oh! and seeing what other couples we’ve read about previously, especially Sienna and Hawke. *sigh* are doing in their lives. If you enjoy paranormal romance and haven’t tried this series- run! don’t walk and grab the first one, Slave to Sensation, you are in for a great ride. I can’t wait to see where these characters and this world go next.

Lovestruck by…. Eve and Roarke. Contest!!!

Ok…. My second blog hop! Thank you to Under The Covers Book Blog and Bona Fide Reflections for organizing this giveaway hop with so many great blogs and websites that celebrate reading! Thank you for stopping by The Book Tart. My site is new, but I am happy to share. I love to read and chat about books. I am especially excited about the New Fiction Release database. You can take a look at the print titles for each month and narrow the list down by date too. My geeks are working on the ability to add e-book editions soon.

I just realized I was supposed to share with you what character or series I am lovestruck by…who has me completely smitten. It’s a really great idea for a post. It’s just that I am away from home right now and my stacks and mountains of books don’t travel well. Aack! So, as I was packing I grabbed the starting book and the most recent book in a series that popped into my mind first. And of course, as I was on the plane I was rethinking and wishing I had brought more books with me to share other favorites characters and series. Honestly, I don’t have an ultimate favorite! It really depends on my mood <g> But, do to circumstances beyond my control (Ha!) and the fact that my entire library wouldn’t possibly fit in my suitcase, I am going to share with you the characters that first came to my mind.

Kelly Jamieson Interview

Hi Kelly! Welcome to The Book Tart. Congratulations on your new release Sweet Deal today from Samhain. I was fortunate enough to get my paws on a reviewer copy and can’t wait to talk to you about it. And Happy Release Day to you… Happy Release Day to you… What? Yes, I’m singing.

Thank you so much! And thanks for interviewing me!

Random side question. Are you one of those people who listen to elevator music/mall music or do you tune it out? I listen to it, but if it’s bad I try to tune it out. I love music.

If Yes, Do you sing in the car? Totally! It’s the only place I’ll sing out loud. Other than maybe church on Christmas Eve when we sing Christmas carols.


I just finished reading Sweet Deal and it is my first time reading your work. I loved the story! I am in love with Jake, though I adore him with Shelby… But, I want a clone of him for me. <g> I get into my feelings more on the story in my review. I want to be friends with Shelby and can relate to some of her insecurities and emotions. And I enjoyed watching the “Sweet Deal” Shelby and Jake had develop into something neither one of them expected.

Can you recommend other books of yours I should try next? Thank you, I’m so glad you liked it! Sweet Deal is one of my less “erotic” books (although it’s still pretty hot!) but if you like straight contemporary romance, my “hockey stories” are pretty popular (Breakaway, Faceoff and One Man Advantage). Also Friends With Benefits is similar to Sweet Deal.


I loved reading about Shelby’s girl friends and hope you have plot bunnies in your brain hopping about with stories for Myra and Riley and eventually maybe Kiara too? And as a side benefit getting to see more of characters I’ve already grown to love. Please tell me you have sequels planned after Sweet Deal?!  I do! I hope to write stories for all those girls! Kiara especially deserves a happy ending, don’t you think? But she’ll need some time…
