Halo, jumpa lagi di postingan (bulanan?) saya yang berjudul Book Waiting To Be released. Lagi-lagi saya gagal membuat postingan ini di bulan November. Udah nggak ingat lagi apa alasannya :(
Tapi untung saja, di hari pertama bulan Desember 2016 ini saya langsung teringat akan postingan ini. Jadi sepagian ini saya mendaftar buku-buku yang saya tunggu kehadirannya di bulan ini. Berikut daftar buku incaran saya :)
1. Someone like You - Lauren Layne (6 December 2016)
Buku ketiga dari seri Oxford karya Lauren Layne ini termasuk salah satu buku yang saya tunggu-tunggu. Karya-karya Lauren Layne sudah cukup banyak yang saya baca dan termasuk ke dalam daftar buku-buku favorit saya. Antara lain adalah Blurred Lines dan I Wish You Were Mine. Jadi nggak kebayang excitednya saya karena buku terbarunya terbit di bulan ini :)
Lincoln Mathis doesn’t hide his reputation as Manhattan’s ultimate playboy. In fact, he cultivates it. But behind every flirtatious smile, each provocative quip, there’s a secret that Lincoln’s hiding from even his closest friends—a tragedy from his past that holds his heart quietly captive. Lincoln knows what he wants: someone like Daisy Sinclair, the sassy, off-limits bridesmaid he can’t take his eyes off at his best friend’s wedding. He also knows that she’s everything he can never have.
After a devastating divorce, Daisy doesn’t need anyone to warn her off the charming best man at her sister’s wedding. One look at the breathtakingly hot Lincoln Mathis and she knows that he’s exactly the type of man she should avoid. But when Daisy stumbles upon Lincoln’s secret, she realizes there’s more to the charming playboy than meets the eye. And suddenly Daisy and Lincoln find their lives helplessly entwined in a journey that will either heal their damaged souls . . . or destroy them forever.
2. Trophy Wife - Noelle Adams (6 December 2016)
Yang paling saya suka dari karya-karya Noelle Adams adalah kebanyakan buku yang ditulisnya mempunyai plot-plot favorit saya.
Alison Davies used to just be a trophy wife. Now she’s just flat broke. Thanks to an ironclad prenup, she’s worse off than she was before the day she rushed down the aisle with a wealthy jerk eight years ago. After her steep fall from riches to rags, Alison refuses to shackle herself to any man who treats her like a possession—no matter how good he looks in a pair of well-worn jeans, or how his muscles ripple while he’s carrying her couch.Underneath his rugged exterior, Rob West is a gentleman. So when he sees his beautiful new neighbor moving in, he’s going to help her out no matter how loudly she protests. In fact, Alison’s determination to go it alone just strengthens his resolve—and his desire to find out what makes her tick. But after one spur-of-the-moment tumble in the sheets, it’s clear that their connection goes way deeper. And that Rob won’t be happy until Alison surrenders to the passion they share.
3. I Will - Lisa Kleypas (13 December 2016)
Karya terbaru dari Lisa Kleypas in imerupakan sebuah novella yang masih berhubungan dengan salah satu seri historical romancenya yaitu, Capital Theatre. Dua buku di seri ini diterbitkan pada tahun 1996 dan 1997. Jadi, lumayan juga rentang waktu antara buku-buku tersebut dengan novella ini. Saya nggak tahu apakah tokoh-tokoh di novella ini punya hubungan langsung atau tidak dengan tokoh-tokoh di dua buku sebelumnya.
Mari kita tunggu saja... :)
Andrew, Lord Drake, has been cut out of his father’s will because of his dissolute manner of living. To be reinstated, Andrew decides to pretend that he has changed his wicked ways.
As part of his plan, he wants to convince his father that he is courting a respectable woman with the intention of marrying her. The problem is, he doesn’t know any decent women, except for his friend’s spinster sister, Miss Caroline Hargreaves. He blackmails the reluctant Caroline into helping him, and so the charade begins...
4. Kingdom of Sleep - E.K. Johnston (15 December 2016)
Lihat saja cover buku ini, apa nggak bakal tertarik untuk membacanya? Settingan waktu di buku ini adalah sekitar ribuan tahun setelah buku pertama, A Thousand Nights, yang cover bukunya sangat Arabian Night sekali. Jadi, belum baca buku pertama tetep aja oke kalau mau baca buku ini. A Thousand Nights masuk daftar bacaan saya tahun silam :)
The world is made safe by a woman...but it is a very big world.
It has been generations since the Storyteller Queen drove the demon out of her husband and saved her country from fire and blood. Her family has prospered beyond the borders of their village, and two new kingdoms have sprouted on either side of the mountains where the demons are kept prisoner by bright iron, and by the creatures the Storyteller Queen made to keep them contained.
But the prison is crumbling. Through years of careful manipulation, a demon has regained her power. She has made one kingdom strong and brought the other to its knees, waiting for the perfect moment to strike. When a princess is born, the demon is ready with the final blow: a curse that will cost the princess her very soul, or force her to destroy her own people to save her life.
The threads of magic are tightly spun, binding princess and exiled spinners into a desperate plot to break the curse before the demon can become a queen of men. But the web of power is dangerously tangled--and they may not see the true pattern until it is unspooled.

6. Wyoming Brave - Diana Palmer (27 December 2016)
Kalau udah Diana Palmer saya nggak perlu ngomong apa-apa lagi. Baca aja deh! :)
The Wyoming men are back! In their quest for true love on the range, are these ranchers bold enough to open their hearts to the women under their protection?
Ren Colter may own an enormous ranch in Wyoming, but he scorns his wealth. He's closed himself off since his fiancée left him years ago, so he's shocked when he allows Meredith Grayling to stay with him. He tells himself it's only to protect the blonde beauty from a stalker, but Ren's alpha instincts soon kick in.
The last thing Merrie wants is a devastatingly handsome man like Ren lurking around her. He's too experienced, too appealing for her already shot nerves. What she needs is just to get away from it all: the man haunting her waking dreams and the one hunting her like an animal. But no woman escapes this Colter cowboy!
7. After the Wedding - Courtney Milan (December 2016)
Courtney Milan merupakan salah satu penulis historical romance yang buku-bukunya masuk ke dalam daftar wajib baca buat saya. Dan biasanya cover-cover novelnya sangat cantik yang bikin makin semangat buat membacanya. Sudah agak lama sejak terakhir saya membaca buku karyanya, karena selama dua tahun terakhir ini selera saya akan historical romance agak surut :(
