Romance News, March 30, 2015

As reported on The Hummingbird Place on Blog Talk Radio.

From Publisher’s weekly, this first tidbit will come as no surprise to the hundreds and thousands of Barbara Taylor Bradford fans. The New York Times Bestselling author’s 30th saga, t The Cavendon Women, went on sale on the 24th of this month from St. Martin’s Press. The Woman of Substance, who holds an OBE from the Queen of England, is not only a bestselling author, but a beloved one as well.





In the list of most anticipated books of spring, 2015, per Publishers Weekly, I ferreted out these three romances.


  • First, Jane Ashford’s book, Married to a Perfect Stranger by Jane Ashford (Sourcebooks Casablanca, Mar. 3) – In a Regency romance about personal growth and excited rediscovery, long-separated spouses must overcome scorn and opposition from their family and colleagues in order to turn a naïvely arranged marriage into a passionate partnership.
  • In A Heart Revealed by Josi S. Kilpack (Shadow Mountain, Apr. 7) – Kilpack weaves a haunting, mesmerizing story about a wealthy woman who must take a hard look at the selfish and cruel person she’s become and decide who she wants to be.
  • Eric Jerome Dickey takes the one-night stand into the realm of art with a tightly controlleed portrayal of two anonymous characters whose passion in a secluded hotel room is refracted thru glimpses of a troubled outside world, in his novel titled ONE NIGHT.


The New York Times list of mass market print bestsellers, includes these top five picks.

  • THE LONGEST RIDE, by Nicholas Sparks
  • THE TARGET, by David Baldacci
  • FESTIVE IN DEATH, by J. D. Robb
  • THE BOOTLEGGER, by Clive Cussler and Justin Scott
  • MISSING YOU, by Harlan Coben

The NYT list of mass market electronic bestsellers, includes these:

  1. THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN, by Paula Hawkins
  2. NYPD RED 3, by James Patterson and Marshall Karp
  3. PREY, by Michael Crichton
  4. THE LONGEST RIDE, by Nicholas Sparks
  5. SOARING, by Kristen Ashley

Out of all of those, only one, SOARING, is categorized as romance. The majority of the rest appear to be mystery/suspense.

That’s all the romance news for this week.
