Fresh Fiction Box Not To Miss is a monthly book subscription that sends 4-7 new release books for $25.95. Shipping is free to the U.S. but they also ship worldwide. You can choose from a 1 or 3-month plan and both plans auto renew. Alternatively, you can also buy a one-time box from their online shop. They send 3-5 new release print books and codes for some downloadable ebooks! Most of the books will be from the romance genre but they may occasionally send mystery, erotica, YA, and paranormal books too.
Everything in my January 2019 box! I received 5 paperbacks. Fresh Fiction sends different box variations each month so keep in mind that your box may vary from mine!
We received a note again this month from the author of the featured book. It was missing last month but I’m glad to see it back.
The Girl He Used to Know by Tracey Garvis Graves ($17.70) – This is an advanced readers copy which means we get it before it’s released. I love getting these and feeling like I’m ahead of the game. I’m always mesmerized by the stories of people who used to date and then live their lives but finally end up back together. This sounds like just that kind of romance and I can’t wait to see what drove them apart and then brings them together.
Annika (rhymes with Monica) Rose is an English major at the University of Illinois. Anxious in social situations where she finds most people’s behavior confusing, she’d rather be surrounded by the order and discipline of books or the quiet solitude of playing chess.
Jonathan Hoffman joined the chess club and lost his first game―and his heart―to the shy and awkward, yet brilliant and beautiful Annika. He admires her ability to be true to herself, quirks and all, and accepts the challenges involved in pursuing a relationship with her. Jonathan and Annika bring out the best in each other, finding the confidence and courage within themselves to plan a future together. What follows is a tumultuous yet tender love affair that withstands everything except the unforeseen tragedy that forces them apart, shattering their connection and leaving them to navigate their lives alone.
Now, a decade later, fate reunites Annika and Jonathan in Chicago. She’s living the life she wanted as a librarian. He’s a Wall Street whiz, recovering from a divorce and seeking a fresh start. The attraction and strong feelings they once shared are instantly rekindled, but until they confront the fears and anxieties that drove them apart, their second chance will end before it truly begins.
Along with the note from the author back in this month’s box we also got an info card on the featured book. To go with this we received a pen instead of a tea pack. I LOVE pens and have already been using this one.
Home to Wind River by Lindsey McKenna ($5.98) – They have a similar past and are dealing with it in a similar way. It sounds like fate is stepping in and trying to heal them in its own way. I’m always for a damaged man and the woman who can heal his damaged heart.
The new novel from the bestselling author of Lone Rider.
For some, love is the only medicine . . .
After a harrowing tour of duty in Afghanistan, Army nurse Lily Thompson escapes to Wind River Ranch to find herself once more. Working as a caregiver to foreman Jake Murdoch’s elderly mother, Lily almost feels at peace—except for the unsettling presence of Jake, a tight-lipped, intimidating man everyone calls Bear. But one look in the powerful ex-Marine’s eyes and Lily glimpses a vulnerability that shakes her soul: a hurt she understands all too well—and longs to heal . . .
Jake is ready to rail at the fates when Lily moves into his home. Everything about this captivating woman calls to him, demanding that he abandon his solitary stance and start to live again. But Jake is a man who knows that no one can save him from the past that stalks his heart and mind. Not even sweet, achingly beautiful Lily. Still, that doesn’t stop his longing to pull her into his arms—and keep her there forever. Will time, and patience, bring them the courage to make their connection real? . . .
The Bride Chooses a Highlander by Adrienne Basso($5.98) – I am so glad that I don’t live in a time when marriage is all about property and power. The stories based in that time are always interesting and I feel bad for so many but in this novel, she gets to pick which is fantastic. Of course, she picks wrong the first time and ends up in the arms of another. Throw in some family tensions and it’s sure to be a rollicking good story.
Scotland, 1335: Marriage between clans is a matter of property and power, rarely love. But the only daughter of Laird McKenna longs for passion—and finds it in a Highlander’s arms . . .
The unconventional Lady Katherine McKenna has been granted a rare privilege: the right to choose her own husband. It’s a more difficult task than she expected. When at last she agrees to a betrothal, it quickly goes awry, leaving Katherine alone in the wilds . . . and rescued by Laird Lachlan MacTavish. She’s captivated by the proud, brooding chief who shows her such tender care. But with their clans on the brink of war, the honorable Lachlan resists his attraction—until Katherine proclaims to her family that they will wed.
Though stunned by her boldness, Lachlan is intrigued by Katherine’s beauty and spirit, and the MacTavishes will benefit from an alliance with the powerful McKennas. But with family discord, treachery, and deceit in their midst, can they save a marriage that is destined to blossom into incomparable love?
My Favorite Cowboy by Donna Grant($7.99) – Another advanced readers copy. I feel so special and who doesn’t love a good cowboy? I’m not sure if it’s the tight jeans or the Stetson or the boots but WOWsers Cowboys are HOT!
Audrey Martinez is a veterinarian who has devoted her whole life to the care and protection of horses―even if doing so leaves her little time for meeting a man. Who would have thought that a strange case of criminal horseplay would lead her to falling deeply, wildly in love? If only the man who makes her heart race faster than a wild mustang would let his guard down, that is. . .
Caleb Harper is no ordinary cowboy. Sure, he wears his hat, boots, and jeans like a second skin, and displays an easygoing charm that comes from years of working on the ranch. But with his military background, and Army buddies at his side, he is tried-and-true Texas tough. Audrey knows she can trust a man like Caleb to help her save horses. But can Caleb trust himself to resist his attraction to Audrey―or will the sparks of their desire end up getting them burned?
