THE WEDDING DATE is getting a lot of buzz this year, and I predict it'll be The Valentine's Day Book for 2018. And you know what? I think it's the perfect choice to fill that niche. It's a solid book and, while it may not be inventive or breathtakingly emotional, it's happy and welcoming and warm. If you need something happy to read in the grueling weeks of February, this may work for you.
I’m honored and happy to be joining the Love in Panels blog as a regular contributor to talk about science fiction romance, or SFR as we sometimes abbreviate it. Each month I’ll bring you a few Best Bets from the latest releases in the genre that I’ve read.

Itty-bitty review committee! It's been a good reading month.
Suleikha Snyder, known for her Bollywood series and her threads on publishing, is a highly entertaining follow on Twitter. In the last few weeks, she's had Romancelandia cracking up about Marvel superheroes' "special skills," funny things her family says, and Old Skool romance plots. She also happens to have a new book out, with a hero loosely based on Gordon Ramsay.
Today we're talking with Ainslie Paton, writer of contemporary romance, wrangler of adorable/sinister cats, and Australia native. She's sharing the cover for her THE LOVE COUPON, which comes out April 9, 2018, details on her next series, and a cat photo (because we asked). Enjoy!
The third and final book in Amanda Bouchet’s Kingmaker Chronicles, HEART ON FIRE, comes out today. (January 2, 2018) Since it’s the series finale, it’s virtually impossible to write this review without spoilers for the previous books, but I am going to try my very darndest. To that end, I have composed a list of five things I think readers should know about HEART ON FIRE. Here goes.
As we wrap up 2017, Love in Panels is offering one last giveaway: brand-new print copies of HATE TO WANT YOU and WRONG TO NEED YOU. These are books that have meant a lot to a lot of people this year and are on several best-of lists, including ours!
Elizabeth May's Falconer Trilogy starts off treading very familiar ground, but quickly leaves the path in favor of a deep and creative exploration of Faerie mythology. Spoiler: there are no falcons.
