What Kimber An Wants

I'm looking down the aisles and seeing an Endless Parade of Sameness.  I suppose it's inevitable when you read or read about a ton of books.  But, I'm a girl who likes a buffet.
Can anyone refer me to an excellent World War II Historical Romance novel in the New or Upcoming Releases?  Anyone at all?  (Kimber An listens to crickets chirping.)  (((sigh)))  C'mon, I understand the appeal of Regencies, although I don't share a fondness for it.  But, seriously, there's THOUSANDS of years of human history out there during which human beings fell in love with each other!  It didn't all happen in the Regency Era in England or there'd be none of us right now.  'Kay?
Extra points for finding me a novel with a blond hero.
Gimme some Steampunk while you're at it.  Steampunk's the one kind of story I'm not overly familiar with. 
BONESHAKER by Cherie Priest.  Haven't got it.  Yet.
And Science Fiction Romance?  I don't even want to talk about it.  (Kimber An checks her calendar to see how many more months until SUREBLOOD by Susan Grant comes out, even though she hates the cover.)  If I see one more SFR with another....nevermind.  Let's just say I"ll puke Tribbles and it won't be pretty.

There's a Love Inspired Historical coming out, I think, next month that looked like WWII (although, now that I'm thinking about it, it may have been WWI). But if I come across one, I'll let you know.

One of the books I just got contacted to review is 1920s Colorado. Looks good.

I also just read "Steamed" that came out in February (by Katie MacAlister) that is really good steampunk.

I'll keep my eye peeled for something out of the ordinary that you would enjoy. :-)

So, I go on Twitter to follow a new writer, and find out she has a WWII historical romance releasing this month! :-)

Thank you, Rebecca!

I'll go check out the Love Inspired Historical and the one you found on Twitter. Let me know if you snag them first, although I'm sure the authors wouldn't mind two reviews each on the same blog.
