With maybe the occasional muttered: Where is that darn tablet?

Authors have taken note of both, with the end result being a July full of new titles aplenty as well as a good many new eBook offerings. Whether your reading tastes lean to men on motorcycles or knights on horseback, billionaire bad boys or soldier rogues—July delivers it all … even if your tastes lean to sci-fi love.

PortalCathryn Cade, with Alison Aimes, Melisse Aires, Cara Bristol, Diane Burton, and five other authors, have collected a mix of sci-fi romance in the eBook anthology Portals: Volume Two, Gateway to the Worlds of Science Fiction Romance. Think love at the cusp of the galaxy.

Meanwhile, New York Times Bestselling Author Sarah Castille delivers Chaos Bound, Book 4 in her Sinner’s Tribe Motorcycle Club Series, in both eBook and paperback. A West Side Story set in the world of motorcycle gangs, this is a tale in which Holt Savage has done the unthinkable: he’s fallen for a beautiful woman with ties to another bike club. Intent on revenging an act that left him estranged from his old club, Holt is torn between keeping the girl and setting the record straight. Which emotion will trump the other?

Chaos BoundBestselling Author Dara Girard returns this month with the contemporary romance Just One Look, Book 4 in her Black Stockings Society eBook Series. Professional organizer Caryn Chandler thinks her life is perfect, until her hair starts falling out, she breaks up with her boyfriend, and she bumps into the man she left standing at the altar eight years ago. When an invitation from the Black Stockings Society arrives promising her a second chance at love, she jumps at the chance to undo what she has always considered to be her biggest mistake in life.

For readers in search of historical romance, Lauren Linwood unveils Marked By Honor, Book 2 in her Knights of Valor Series. Lady Beatrice Bordel has led a life marked with tragedy—beginning with a riding accident that killed her father while Beatrice was just a little girl and culminating in the recent deaths of her mother and grandfather on the very same day. She is homeless and on her own now, intent on using her domestic skills and lute-playing to secure a permanent place in the home of her grandfather’s closest friend. But before she can reach her destination, a band of highwaymen accost Beatrice and her sole servant. All seems lost—until Raynor Le Roux arrives. As a knight of the realm, the code of chivalry guides Raynor’s life. He is drawn to the young woman he has rescued, but a white lie may keep their growing attraction from turning into love.

Have you ever told a little white lie that ended up having untold repercussions?
