Courtney Milan's new book, The Devil Comes Courting, was just released yesterday. I don't think it was posted here, or it would have been on my Wishlist already! https://www.paperbackswap.com/Devil-Comes-Courting-Courtney-Milan/book/9798741161982/

Karin, I don't usually catch those that are self published. I used to follow Milan, but when she and some other favorite authors switched to self publishing or ebooks only some years ago, they fell off my radar.  Once in a while I'll stumble upon a few, but for the most part, I stopped chasing those down. Signing up for all their newsletters to keep up with new releases created chaos in my inbox!

Milan's a great writer. Thanks for sharing!

https://www.paperbackswap.com/Devil-Heiress-Harper-St-George/book/0593197224/ The Devil and the Heiress by Harper St. George 

I read her first book and it was outstanding. The series is set in the Gilded Age, the setup is impoverished English nobleman and American heiresses.

The Captive Duke is for sure a re-print, not sure why the name change though.

New Carla Kelly coming in September.  It's from Camel Press which is usually her publisher for her LDS books.  Think it's set in the same time period as "Courting Carrie in Wonderland".  

It's called "Her Smile" and the ISBN is 9781603811903.

Woohoo! Right on, Jan! A new Carla Kelly is always something to look forward to. smiley

Courting Carrie in Wonderland was a good one, too.

A Treacherous Trade
Author: Kerrigan Byrne

For some reason, this book popped up recently in my search with a different ISBN (and different release date) from the one I previously flagged here in this thread. I suggest that if you've already put the first one on your wishlist, reserve your spot for this one, too.

For fans of Mimi Matthews, she is warning people that John Eyre is NOT historical romance. It's a takeoff on Jane Eyre, but more of a Gothic horror suspense story.
