We have a strong selection this month of romantic suspense: chilling stories to keep you cool (aka, terrified) while you're simmering in the sun at the beach or pool. (And you are wearing sunscreen, aren't you? Good.) Readers of historical romance will be pleased with this month's offerings as well.
Below are five of our favorite new romances publishing in August. Click here to see our full list of picks plus what we've picked in past months.

A few authors are finishing up fabulous series, as J.R. Ward rounds out her Bourbon Kings trilogy with Devil's Cut and Ilona Andrews concludes her Hidden Legacy series with Wildfire. Brenda Jackson continues her Protectors books with Locked in Temptation (and don't take just my word for how good it is: this book has 4.9 stars on 65 customer reviews as I write this post). And Stacy Finz launches a new series of small-town contemporary romances with Need You, set down the road from her popular Nugget books.
