Kylie Scott delivers an utterly unputdownable, unique rendering of true love and second chances—a tale that centres entirely on a heroine with no memory of the past or the man she once loved—showing how much our past experiences truly shape who we are. By delving deep into the rich emotional tapestry of a character who is experiencing all her firsts all over again, Scott crafts one of her loveliest, most touching romances to date, infusing each scene with her effortless, deadpan sense of humour, and balancing oh-so perfectly angst with steamy love scenes. Compulsively readable and compelling, this is the kind of story that leaves you pondering how much of the self actually remains when all memory is lost, and what you would do differently if you had a second chance at your own life.

I always get such a kick out of picking a book on nothing more than a whim, especially when it’s from an author who is entirely new to me, but I get positively giddy when I realise not even past the halfway mark that I’ve stumbled upon something truly special. In this playful, romantic romp, Lucy Score reveals a rare gift for writing with an intoxicating combination of wit, humour, and heartfelt emotion, delivering a charming tale of a woman’s quest to find meaning and purpose in her life, all perfectly underscored by a toe-curling romance that leaves you smiling ear to ear. It’s funny, it’s charming, it’s impeccably written, and it’s simply one of the best books I’ve read all year.

There are still authors who manage to make me fall in love with their writing time and time again, consistently blowing my mind with the sheer power of their words. And Kennedy Ryan is one of those rare authors for me. A true master of her genre, she writes with remarkable sensitivity and intelligence, weaving a quiet storm of prose that is thoughtful, incisive, and filled with deep, deep emotion, but it is the greater message in every one of her stories that leaves us aching to discover every single purposeful detail she has left on the page for us. In this exquisite slow-burning romance between two people whose pasts have taught them not to trust easily with their hearts, but whose every instinct tells them they’ve found something incredibly rare in one another, Ryan’s meticulous character development makes you feel every nuance of emotion between her two leads, and as she continues to weave a tale that is as painful as it is gorgeous, you find yourself knowing one thing from the start—this is a story you’ll want to read many times over.

It’s rare that I read a book THREE TIMES in the span of as many days, entirely incapable of walking away from the characters and the world the author has so splendidly woven for us, but NOT reading this book over and over again was not even an option for me. Set against the vibrant, summer backdrop of Long Beach’s iconic seascape, this story tugs at the heartstrings in all the right ways, making us laugh, swoon, and pant all the way through, and it’s the kind of head-over-heels romance I so ardently long to believe in. Tessa Bailey’s talent for creating a tender, erotic love story with real depth is on display as ever, and I remain enraptured by every one of her heart-stealing words.

Some of my favourite reads have been of the unplanned kind, where the book somehow ‘found’ me, rather than the other way around, but it doesn’t happen all too often that a single book sends me down the rabbit hole in such a way that before I know it, I’ve not only read the whole series, but purchased the author’s ENTIRE back catalogue, too. From the moment I read the blurb, I knew this story would be my catnip—be it because of a heroine whose biological clock is ticking away, or a hero who’s left at the altar, or the mounting sexual tension that inevitably comes with a love/hate scenario—but little did I know I would love it SO SO much. This story had everything I always hope to find in a great romance—depth, emotion, banter, tremendous chemistry between the characters, perfect pacing, and even a few moments where I had to hold back the tears—but it is Catherine Bybee’s sublime writing that turns a great story with a fairly simple premise into an extraordinary one. And as I’ve discovered since then, she does it oh-so effortlessly time and time again.

MODERN-DAY CINDERELLA STORY

London, 2019. Life has been easy for Maxim Trevelyan. With his good looks, aristocratic connections, and money, he’s never had to work and he’s rarely slept alone. But all that changes when tragedy strikes and Maxim inherits his family’s noble title, wealth, and estates, and all the responsibility that entails. It’s a role he’s not prepared for and one that he struggles to face.

But his biggest challenge is fighting his desire for an unexpected, enigmatic young woman who’s recently arrived in England, possessing little more than a dangerous and troublesome past.  Reticent, beautiful, and musically gifted, she’s an alluring mystery, and Maxim’s longing for her deepens into a passion that he’s never experienced and dares not name. Just who is Alessia Demachi? Can Maxim protect her from the malevolence that threatens her? And what will she do when she learns that he’s been hiding secrets of his own?

This is a standalone novel.

One week.
World tour.
No plans.
And absolutely no promises.

Summer had returned. The nightlife lit up the coastal town of Sea Breeze, Alabama with scantily clad sun-kissed bodies, live music, the smell of fresh cooked seafood.

Taking it all in, he wondered if coming back had been the best thing. He wasn’t the same man who had driven out of town a year ago on the motorcycle he’d bought after his best friend’s wedding. From the messy blonde curls he’d let grow out, to the tattoos now covering his arms, part of his chest and even the side of his neck, it all represented a part of his journey.

Eli Hardy was back, but he didn’t plan on staying for long.

This is the third Rosemary Beach and Sea Breeze series crossover novel, introducing a new generation of characters.

FANTASY EROTICA

Cupid’s arrow is the most dangerous weapon…

On the day of Lia’s university graduation party, her parents—wealthy art collectors with friends in high places—gift her a beautiful wine cup, a rare artifact decorated with roses. It’s a stunning gift, and one that August Bowman, a friend of her parents and a guest at Lia’s party, also has his eye on. The cup, August tells her, is known as the Rose Kylix, and it’s no ordinary cup. It was used in the temple ceremonies of Eros, Greek god of erotic love, and has the power to bring the most intimate sexual fantasies to life.

But Lia is skeptical of August’s claims of the cup’s mythology and magic—after all, he’s a collector himself, and she suspects he just wants to get his hands on this impressive piece of art. So he dares her to try it for herself, and when Lia drinks from the Rose Kylix she is suddenly immersed in an erotic myth so vivid it seems real—as though she’s living out the most sensual fantasy with August by her side…

Realizing the true power of this ancient and dangerous relic, Lia is even more wary of giving it up, though August insists it is only safe with him. He’s willing to pay the full value of the cup, but Lia has another type of trade in mind. One that finds them more tangled up in each other—and in fantasy—than either was prepared for.

This is a standalone novel in The Red series.

He’ll promise her a summer she won’t forget…

Instead of soaking up the SoCal sunshine while housesitting for my aunt, I’m dealing with a Pomeranian who thinks she’s a Pitbull, two half-sisters who would happily prune me off the family tree, and him. Vaughn Shaughnessy. Hot model about to go nuclear, dangerously sexy flirt whose perceptive green eyes promise he’s more than just a pretty face. He’s the kind of walking, talking temptation I should avoid, but that’s impossible because he also happens to be my extremely lickable—I mean likeable—neighbor.

He’s turning me into a hot mess.

Thing is, I can’t handle more messes in my life. I’m still trying to come to terms with the monumental ones in my past, and getting involved with Vaughn—even for temporary summer fun—is guaranteed to get messy. I don’t dare risk it, but I’m not sure I can resist…

SECOND SCANCE ROMANCE

I fell for Cameron Connolly at the wrong time. And when he left, I thought my life was over. But then, after the worst happened, I truly understood what that phrase meant. Now, he’s not ready for a second chance, and I’m not offering one. Though given that our families have been forced together after losing one of our own, I know there’s no turning back. Not this time. Not again. Not when it comes to Cameron.

I never wanted to hurt Violet Knight, but there were reasons I had to leave all those years ago—not that she’d believe me if I told her what they were. I not only left her, I also left my foster brothers. Honestly, I didn’t want to come back to Denver to help run my father’s failing brewery. But when it comes to my brothers, I know I’ll find a way to make it work. Perhaps I’ll even earn Violet’s forgiveness and face the connection we both thought long forgotten in the process. Because I wanted her then, but now I know I need her. I just hope she needs me.

This is the first book in the all-new Fractured Connections series of interconnected standalone novels.

Sometimes a groupie’s heart craves the wrong rock star…

Lindsey Parker’s entire life changed the night a wayward sperm decided she should become a mother. Unfortunately, she’s not sure who fathered her child one wild winter night on Sole Regret’s tour bus. Ostracized by her community, shunned by her family, and abandoned by her friends, Lindsey seeks help from the band member who put her in this desperate position. She hopes her baby’s father is Owen Mitchell—Sole Regret’s sweetheart of a bass player, who took her in when she had nowhere else to go. He’d make an excellent dad, a loving, supportive husband, and he’s gorgeous to boot, but he currently loves another woman. Can Lindsey convince her favorite rock star to love her instead?

But not all rock stars are in a band…

Sergeant Chad Mitchell’s entire life changed the day he triggered an explosive device. He lost more than his leg and his brilliant bomb-sniffing dog on that battlefield. When Chad opens his eyes to an ethereal beauty’s smiling face, he’s sure that he has died and gone to heaven. But can angels get pregnant? He soon discovers that Lindsey is no angel, but he can’t help being drawn to the one person who doesn’t look at him and compare what’s left to his former glory. She admires him for who his is now. Too bad her heart belongs to his rock star little brother. Can Chad convince his favorite groupie to love him instead?

Lindsey agrees to help Chad recover at home, but due to their undeniable attraction to each other, close quarters lead to compromising positions. Together they provide the emotional support the other needs to forge onward to their uncertain futures. But when Lindsey finally discovers who fathered her baby, will that inescapable reality end her time with Chad, or be their true beginning?

My husband left me.

After five years together, he realized he was gay.

Once the anger had faded away, there was nothing but love behind. This man is still my best friend and I want him in my life. So I move across the hall so we can be as close as we always have.

Then his brother moves in for a couple of weeks, a man I’ve never met. He relocates to Seattle to work as an ER doctor at the local hospital.

And he’s NOTHING like his brother.

The strong and silent type, he looks at me with a gaze so fierce it’s like he hates me. Every time we’re alone in a room together, the chemistry is so suffocating I can barely breathe. The guy never wears a shirt around the apartment so that makes it a million times worse…or better depending on how you look at it.

But this man is off limits. He’s the only man in the world I can’t have. And he can’t have me either.

So we’ll just have to keep pretending there’s nothing here….even though there is.

This is the first instalment in a four-part series. Parts one and two are both available now.

Edison Roads was born with a wrench in his hand to a working class family. He’s worked hard to get where he is; owner of one of the fastest growing companies in America. His success, coupled with his dashing looks have earned him the reputation of America’s Most Eligible Bachelor. But Edison isn’t a ladies’ man. He wants a real woman to share his success with. Problem is—there’s no one who’s ever caught his attention.

Laney Mills was born with a silver spoon in her mouth. But the hum of an engine and the scent of motor oil was the only thing that made her feel like she was truly herself. She worked hard to establish her own business without capitalizing on her family’s wealth. So when The Lace Garage gets a fancy new competitor in town, she is less than ecstatic.

Wanting to blow off steam, Lacey and Edison head to the same local bar unbeknownst to the other, where a night of explosive passion leads to a junkyard of problems.

Should Laney and Edison try to repair the damage, or should they just scrap this lemon? Either way, this internal combustion is one hell of hard fix.

Warning: Get your engines running with these two mechanics. Laney will do anything to drive him off the road while all Edison can think about is getting under her hood.

This is a standalone novella-length story.
