This week it looks like my only book purchases were in the Kindle store. Many of the titles below were on sale. For instance Sourcebooks has some of their Scottish Highlands-themed romances on sale for 99 cents. I also downloaded a few eARCs from Netgalley that I can’t wait to read–actually too many to list below!

The Duke and I by Julia Quinn

Fever Cure by Philippa Ashley

Highland Rebel by Judith James

Lady Elizabeth’s Comet by Sheila Simonson

Highlander’s Sword by Amanda Forester

Awaken the Highland Warrior by Anita Clenney

The Ivy Tree by Mary Stewart

What about you? Which of your new books are you looking forward to reading the most? For me that would be The Devil Earl by Deborah Simmons because I’ve read so many great reviews.
