This HaBO request is from Liz, who is hoping to identity this historical romance: I’m looking for a book and hoping the community can help. Here’s what I remember: It’s a historical novel (set in the U.S., I’m pretty sure) and the bilingual hero speaks Spanish, but the heroine doesn’t. I think she dislikes him at first, there’s something about riding horses maybe. I can’t remember why she’s hanging around there, but I think there’s some kind of culture shock on her part and a feeling that she’s roughing it wherever in the wild west they are. I know you’re impressed by my specificity thus far, so let me add the two things I actually almost remember. First, he starts calling her “querida” and she doesn’t know what it means. She asks another lady (I think the hero’s sister?) and the sister’s like “he called you what?!” and gives her Significant Looks that confuse the dopey little heroine, who still thinks she and the hero hate each other or whatever. Second, he’s really sexually experienced (astounding!) and she isn’t (unique!), and during sexytimes he says something like how he learned woman-pleasing tricks from some exotic babe (classy!), and the heroine…

Passion on Park Avenue Passion on Park Avenue by Lauren Layne is $1.99! This is the first book in the Central Park Pact series and was released earlier this year. I’m a fan of Layne’s other series and found they balance great banter and sexy chemistry. However, some readers feel this straddles the line between chick lit and contemporary romance. Do you have any thoughts? From the author of the New York Times bestselling Stiletto and Oxford series, the first in a sizzling new series following the unlikely friendship of three Upper East Side women as they struggle to achieve their dreams and find true love and happiness in the city that never sleeps.  For as long as she can remember, Bronx-born Naomi Powell has had one goal: to prove her worth among the Upper East Side elite—the same people for which her mom worked as a housekeeper. Now, as the strongminded, sassy CEO of one of the biggest jewelry empires in the country, Naomi finally has exactly what she wants—but it’s going to take more than just the right address to make Manhattan’s upper class stop treating her like an outsider. The worst offender is her new neighbor, Oliver Cunningham—the grown son…

This HaBO is from Kathleen who is looking for this romance: Can’t remember the name of this book to save my life but it was great. Most of what I remember was that it was set in the South. There was some arranging of letters to spell out D.E.L.I.L.A.H at some point. The heroine’s mother and her mother’s sister were also central to the story. Also, there may have been a bakery involved. I’m unsure if this is contemporary or historical, but I’m leaning more toward contemporary given the possibility of there being a bakery in the South and I can’t exactly envision that in an American Historical romance.

Schitt’s Creek by Dam & Eugene Levy Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) Squee Not a Book We’re so glad to welcome this guest squee by HeatherT, especially as some of us are Schitt’s Creek fans. We hope this squee gets you to watch it, if you haven’t yet! HeatherT is a lawyer in Minneapolis who lives by a lake (really) with two cats. She loves cooking, reading, watching great shows and writing about them. She would like to enjoy gardening, but that’s more aspirational than real. … If you are like me, you have been hearing more and more buzz about Schitt’s Creek – the Canadian show on Pop and Netflix about a rich family that loses everything and has to move to a small town to start over. The buzzing became persistent, so I started watching last week. Reader – it turned into a Bad Decisions TV Club, did-not-leave-the-house-for-three-days marathon. Let’s explore why that is and why you will be happy if you watch it. Schitt’s Creek was developed by Daniel Levy (son of Eugene). It follows the wealthy Rose family – patriarch Johnny (Eugene Levy), matriarch and former soap opera star Moira (Catherine O’Hara) and their two adult children,…
