I have hit a MONDO dry spell when it comes to some of my favourite print authors. They all seem to be on the same release schedule which means either I have NOTHING to read or I have lots to choose from. Thankfully my favourite E-authors fill in the gaps, so I don't loose my mind.
Here's a list of books I'm waiting (not so) patiently for....

Retired cardsharp Kat Simmons has been in hiding for six years. Now she's being asked to risk her hard-won obscurity by baiting the very man she fears. Not only that, the plan involves spending intimate time with Rome, the only man she ever truly loved. Readopting her flamboyant persona, Kat joins Rome on a whirlwind poker tournament tour, gaining notoriety as they clean up at the tables. With any luck, when word gets out that Kat Simmons is back on the circuit, Bulls-Eye Brady will show up to reclaim the woman who "got away."
Angela Knight's Warrior In the 24th century, anyone can leap through time at will. To police the time jumpers, the Temporal Enforcement Agency has established a precinct in time.

What Galar doesn't count on is the powerful desire Jessica Kelly ignites in him. But could a romance between them work? A three-hundred-year chasm separates them and, even if they dart through time, there's still a maniacal killer on their tails
