Year One by Nora RobertsIt is a truth universally acknowledged that Nora Roberts can excel at anything she turns her pen to, so I'm enormously thrilled to read Year One, a post-apocalyptic tale in which technology fails and magic bursts forth, upending the world as we know it. As the cover copy ominously says, "The end has come. The beginning comes next." It's hard to say how much the force of love drives the plot, but I'm willing to happily put myself in Roberts' hands and find out. (December 5)

Roomies by Christina Lauren - Readers of the Amazon Book Review know of my depthless love for the writing duo Christina Lauren and, most recently, their Hollywood-set standalone Dating You Hating You. Roomies takes place among the glitter and grit of New York's Broadway scene and turns on one of my favorite romance tropes, the marriage of convenience. It's a hard trope to pull off in modern-set stories, but I have faith in Christina Lauren's powers to not only convince but make me laugh all the way through. (December 5)

Cowboy Up by Harper Sloan - Sloan's third Coming Home book puts eldest Davis brother Clayton briefly in the arms of bookstore owner Caroline during a one-night stand, but it's an encounter that lingers for both of them. Sloan's the master of wrung-tight emotions and characters who overcome tough experiences, and I expect she'll deliver another moving, masterful story of being brave enough to embrace love. (December 19)

The Lullaby Girl by Loreth Anne White - I chose White's In the Barren Ground as the best romance of 2016, and if you haven't read it yet, get it now. For her upcoming The Lullaby Girl, I'm aquiver with anticipation—and, yes, a bit of trepidation, because White's suspenseful stories have a way of creeping deep into your bones and making you stare at the ceiling, thinking about her characters and the crimes they encounter, long past when you should be deep in REM sleep. A cold case jerks detective Angie Pallorino out of her growing despair at being stuck on desk duty but has the potential to unravel her career completely, as the toxic past reaches into the present. (November 14)

Wilde in Love by Eloisa James - James launches a new series set in the Georgian era with a globetrotting adventurer who meets his match in the funny but restrained Miss Willa Ffynche. James can be counted on for lively, sometimes hilarious conversational exchanges between her hero and heroine, and I'm also intrigued by the cover, which brings back memories of Colin Firth coming out of the lake in BBC's Pride and Prejudice
