Aleksei Popov—Russia’s number one mobster, and the man I was sold to.
His intentions for me are clear—submit, obey him, and call him master—but I won’t surrender. I’m not like the other girls. Whether that’s a blessing or curse, I’ve yet to decide. The problem is, my disobedience intrigues my captor all the more.
When we arrive in Russia, the rules change.
Saint, the man who was once a sinner, is my only salvation. What was forbidden now gives me hope that there is light in the darkness. He will risk everything to set me free.
But behind these opulent walls, things aren’t what they seem, and when the fine line between pleasure and pain begins to blur, only one thing matters—saving my soul.
I will lie.
I was once an angel, but now… I’m a fallen saint, ready to inflict my own pain and burn this hellhole to the ground.
This is the second book in the All The Pretty Things dark romance trilogy.
When I was a kid, my dad was the gardener for the richest man in town. His daughter, Lily Barnes, told me she could never like a guy like me. Then she kissed me and told me it would never happen again. When it happened again, she told me she could never love me because she was going to leave this place, and I would never leave my dad.
We were never quite friends, not exactly enemies, and we could never quite stop secretly kissing each other.
She never said goodbye before running off to try to make it as an actress. That was her dream, and I wanted her to chase it. Okay, maybe I hated her for it, just a little.
Now she’s back, with no money and even more sass.
A lot has changed around here … except for my hidden feelings about Lily Barnes.
So, it turns out I’m a terrible actress and now I’m back!
When my father offers me a job at his company, I actually think he’s finally decided I’m worthy of one day taking over the family business. Imagine my surprise when I find out that the gardener’s son is the one who’s being groomed to take over, and I’ve been assigned to work for him.
Wes Carver has always been rich in confidence and abs, but now he’s rich in everything, including disdain for yours truly.
If he thinks I’m not built to work, he’s wrong.
If he thinks he can boss me around just because he’s my boss, he’s delusional.
If he thinks I’m still the girl who could never love him … I may be a better actress than anyone thought.

And my husband?
He gave them all to me.
This is the first book in an all-new duet, but it can be read as a standalone.
Sightseeing, gay bars…and if I’m lucky, maybe a couple of random hookups. That’s the extent of my plans when I sign up for a European vacay with my buddies. I’ve never heard of this Parlaisa country–but hey–a cheap flight and two-star hotel are perfect for a poor college kid, right? And the trip turns out to be even better than I could have possibly imagined when I end up in a bar with some sexy masked guy’s tongue down my throat.
And damn…what a tongue.
Even with his face partially obscured, Sexy Masked Guy can’t hide those hypnotic steel blue eyes, his chiseled jawline, or the gun show he’s working with under that tight T-shirt. But after our kiss, he proves to be nothing more than a cocky, dismissive a-hole. As if that isn’t bad enough, flash forward–after one hell of a misunderstanding, I’m arrested by the Parlaisan royal guard and taken to a dungeon, where I learn that Sexy Masked Guy is actually Sexy Prince.
Prince Owen Hawthorne III.
Yes, I was kissing the Prince of Parlaisa!
Even worse, pics of us kissing are posted on the notorious Prince Watch blog. Prince Owen III has been unmasked by the paps, and we’ve both been outed. And here I had been planning to finally tell my family about my inclinations towards rainbows, glitter, and c*ck as soon as I got back home to Fever Falls.
Seems like my vacation can’t get any wackier, but now Prince Owen needs a favor–a fake relationshipfavor. All I have to do is pretend to be his boyfriend for a good cause and some cash that I could really use right about now. But do I really want to team up with a guy who’s been nothing but a prick to me in the short time that I’ve known him?
Of course, before I know it, I’m in too deep. Fortunately, Owen’s strict ‘no messing around’ rule will keep this from getting out of control.
Even though I can’t stop thinking about how he knew exactly what he was doing with his tongue.
Even though he loves watching me prance around in my underwear.
Even though he can’t get enough of me on my knees, doing what I do best.
Dammit–did we already screw this up?
Talk about a #RoyalProblem.

2. They hate each other
After an “oops, we made a mistake” night together, neither one can stop thinking about the other.

When it’s suddenly pushed up and they only have a few months left of secret rendezvouses, they find themselves regretting that the end is near.

Dylan Griffin comes to me with an unconventional new job, I discover that three little words can add up to one BIG complication…

He wants my help winning over his high-school crush (aka, his one true love)—and he’s prepared to make it worth my while.

And then there’s the American Bunny League, along with one distractingly beautiful veterinarian, taking him to court to save them…
Dr. Augusta “Gus” North can’t believe the grumpy—and annoyingly hot—builder she’s facing in court cares more about demo-ing some cabin than the lives of 200 bunnies.

Like, for example, absolutely no kissing. Might as well go ahead and get that in writing. Sure it’s on a napkin, but that still counts.

I’m an avid reader of historical romances, but few authors continue to amaze me with the way they engage so purposefully with female identity, body norms, and sexuality in their stories, rather than merely accept the traditionally accepted. And Sarah MacLean is one of those authors. There is so much to adore about her writing—from her elegant but sharp prose, to the intense chemistry between her characters—but to me, her true gift in this genre lies in the way she refocuses history on the perspective of the woman by giving us fierce, trailblazing heroines and the men who champion them, rather than push them to the back. I can confidently say that stories like these are THE reason I will never stop reading romance novels.
K.A. Tucker’s endless imagination and her ability to deliver some of the most vibrant, unconventional love stories I’ve ever read never cease to amaze me, and this book was no exception. It’s a sweet, melancholic romance that seeks to capture the bloom and intensity of a first love, while simultaneously taking us many years into the future where the characters meet each other again for the first time. We watch them slowly learn to trust one another again, only to find that their love hasn’t faded at all while they were apart. This is one of those stories where the characters belong to two very different worlds, but remain tied together by a love that continues to survive against all odds.

Her new husband knows she is hiding something from him, never even suspecting that it is her fear of his touch. As always, Kerrigan Byrne’s heroines are independent, brave, and freethinking, her heroes are protective, selfless, and relentless in their devotion, and every one of her sentences is downright MESMERIZING.
HOLY MOTHER OF ALL PLOT TWISTS! Just when I thought I was used to Aly Martinez’ very own brand of book-voodoo, she ends up delivering one of the most unexpected, mind-blowing stories I have ever come across. Their paths first crossed in the middle of one of the most terrifying moments of their young lives—a moment that changed them both irrevocably—but when they meet again years later, all too many lies and secrets risk keeping them apart forever. It had me on the edge of my seat, with my Kindle in a death grip beginning to end, absolutely loving every single second of this crazy, exhilarating rollercoaster ride of a story.
Known for her emotional, character-driven romances that give us all the feels, Devney Perry strikes again with a tale that is heartbreaking in its candour and brave in its intent, yet somehow incredibly romantic through and through. And with two very real people at its heart—grappling with obstacles that speak to anyone who’s ever felt the bitter sting of failure and regret in love—this is the kind of book you hope you never forget. Even as your tears keep blurring the pages in front of you.
