You know that book that you can’t stop thinking about? The one you find yourself breathlessly and incoherently recommending to anyone willing to listen? The one you wish you could read all over again for the very first time? This is THAT book for me. One of the most spellbinding, profound, beautifully told romances I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading, this is the kind of story that stays with you, moves you, changes something in you—and it has EVERYTHING to do with Alice Archer’s glorious prose. A breathlessly romantic tale of courage and growth, of patience and trust, of tender melancholy and wild abandonment, I resented every single moment I had to spend away from these characters, and fell every bit in love with them as they do with each other. Make room in your life to experience this rare gem of a story!

I can’t even describe what a fan I am of Scarlett Peckham’s magnificent Secrets of Charlotte Street series, and while I couldn’t wait for Henry Evesham’s book, I honestly wasn’t sure whether I’d connect with a hero who’s a pious evangelical reformer in the context of a love story. But I should have never doubted this author’s gift for delivering a beautifully crafted story that feels authentic and emotionally engaging, no matter what the premise happens to be. A hot virgin minister, a very outspoken sex worker, a snowstorm that traps them together for days… Ah, you can cut the sexual angst with a knife! Absolutely stellar start to finish.

I was in the mood for a super ANGSTY read, the kind of story that twists your heart into knots and makes you fight back the tears, and there are a few themes/tropes that always get to me—broken marriages, unrequited love, and babies. The main characters are married but haven’t seen each other for three years, after the heroine lost a baby and ran away from a husband she believed didn’t want her anyway. Now she is back and asking for a divorce. But little does she know that the hero has been searching for her all over the world ever since she left him, tortured over a mistake he cannot take back, and desperately in love with her. And not only does he not want a divorce—he wants his wife back. Simply unputdownable!

Devney Perry continues to impress with the wild, often painful thrills present in every single book she writes, and her latest heart-pounding adventure is no exception. Following closely on the heels of Gypsy King, we FINALLY discover what happened to Genevieve and Isaiah up in that mysterious cabin in the mountains, thus binding their fates forever. It’s the story of a young woman trying to uncover decades-old secrets that led to her mother’s violent death, all the while falling in love with a man who thinks himself unworthy of love. The twists and turns are aplenty, keeping us guessing until the VERY LAST page, but it is the simmering, slow-burning romance between the leads that takes centre stage from the start. A must read for anyone looking for a terrific page-turner that is both an intricate, layered story and a lovely romance with two very likeable people at its heart.

This beautifully written, über-angsty debut novel is one of the BEST Historical Romances I have ever read. It’s the tale of a brilliant but impoverished young suffragist and one of the first female students at Oxford University, who falls for a powerful duke with very different views and goals in life. The yearning between the characters is real and palpable, but in the eyes of their peers, they would never be of equal standing, thus a romance between them is doomed from the start. Set against an important historical backdrop of political activism and change, Evie Dunmore delivers a heroine who is selfless, fiercely independent, and principled, and this is so much more than just a story about two people finding their happily-ever-after—it’s also a compelling perspective on what it means to be a woman, a partner, and an equal, both in and out of the bedroom.

A beautifully written, poignant tale of two men who’ve had to pay a hefty price in life for who they are, but whose unexpected connection slowly frees them both from their painful pasts. When they meet, they are just two people trying hard to keep their demons at bay, but as a tentative friendship blossoms between them, and then begins to tip towards something more, they are forced to face their deepest fears and fight for happiness. An engaging love story with complex characters and relationships, there is so much to love about this book, and I adored every word.

FRIENDS TO LOVERS

In hindsight, I should not have had that fifth mimosa at Breakfast with Santa.

Or the sixth, seventh, and eighth.

But my shame over the public meltdown that resulted was nothing compared to being abandoned by my husband of fifteen years for a much younger woman—and did I mention she’s pregnant?

For the sake of my children and my pride, I pack up and head for my childhood home and the small town where I grew up. Cloverleigh Farms would be the perfect place for a fresh start.

Falling for Henry DeSantis wasn’t part of the plan.

Sure, he’s easy on the eyes and hard in the bedroom (also the hallway, the bathtub, and on top of his desk), but he’s newly divorced too, and things between us are moving so fast I’m afraid neither one of us has had enough time to heal. Not to mention the fact that I’m a single mom now—my kids have to come first.

But Henry makes me feel beautiful and sexy and wanted and strong—things I haven’t felt in years. We understand each other, and when I’m in his arms, I’m tempted to trust again. To love again. To let myself be loved without fear.

But deep down, I’m terrified.

Is this all too much, too soon? Or am I a fool to let a second chance at happily ever after pass me by?

This is the fourth book in the Cloverleigh Farms series of standalone novels with interconnected characters.

“Their strength and ferocity stem from below the surface where their roots are forever tangled, interwoven in such a way that for the remainder of time they bloom together.”

Genesis
Adam
Chloe
Lukas
No one loves them, no one cares about them, no one even sees them until they end up in Mary Rodriguez’s home, an outpost for Sacred Heart’s troubled youth program. It is within these walls that the four teens forge unlikely friendships. They experience the intensity of first loves, share secrets, and suffer losses, vowing to make the world a better place in spite of their personal battles with addiction, depression, loneliness, and abuse. But when the unthinkable happens, those friendships are tested in ways they never could have imagined.

Will they find strength enough to survive or will their bonds be too fractured to heal them yet again?

This is a standalone novel.

SECOND CHANCE + SPORTS ROMANCE

This time, he’s playing to win, and the prize he’s looking to score is me.

It was a three-week fling. Nothing more than a couple of college kids having some fun, but then I did the stupid thing and fell for Jude Taylor quicker than he can score a goal on the ice. And after one beautiful night together, he left for the pros before I could make my first cup of coffee.

I thought I’d put him behind me. I thought I’d moved on. But then he hobbles into my physical therapy office and I realize how absolutely wrong I’ve been—there’s no getting over Jude Taylor.

And now things are complicated. Jude lives half a country away, his career is in direct opposition for my need for stability, and most of all, getting involved with him could mean losing my job and everything I’ve worked so hard for.

Jude doesn’t seem to mind one bit and he’s all in. He might be a patient in my office, but he’s no longer the patient guy I remember.

This time, he’s playing to win, and the prize he’s looking to score is me.

This is a standalone novel in the all-new Ice Kings series.

He’s just been assigned a new partner at his job with the Bridgeport Police, and while he’s busy striving to protect and serve his town, he’s also trying to keep his baby sister out of harm’s way while she heals from her own trauma.

SMALL TOWN ROMANCE

What happens when your secret crush isn’t so secret anymore?

I’ve had feelings for Eve Roberts for as long as I can remember, but because she also happens to be the twin sister of my best friend, Eric, I’ve never acted on my feelings and long ago resigned myself to keeping my crush under wraps.

But after a terrible falling-out with Eric involving a failed restaurant venture and plenty of blame on both sides, I’m back in Port Snow without my best friend and without any direction. But can you guess who’s here? Eve. And my attraction to her is as strong as ever.

As old feelings rush back, Eve and I find ourselves pulled together, whether we like it or not. Lines are crossed, secrets are kept, and we soon discover that the difference between love and friendship may not be so black and white, after all.

Everyone wants that secret crush to love them back…but will I be ready when she does?

This is the third book in the Getting Lucky series of standalone novels with interconnected characters.

My name is Jude Harris and I’m an adrenaline junkie. If it makes my heart pound and my blood rush, I’m all in. That’s how I ended up at the sex club. It was supposed to be one night of fun.

No names.

No professions.

No small talk.

Perfect anonymity.

One hundred percent no strings attached.

I thought I could handle the rules, but that was before I saw her. I should’ve walked away and forgot the whole thing. Coulda, shoulda, woulda… didn’t. She told me not to get attached, but I did it anyway.

If I thought our first sexual encounter changed my life, the second one rearranged my future.

This is a standalone novel.

EX-HUSBAND’S BROTHER

There are some paths in your life you’re never meant to take.
Yet, by some twist of fate, you find yourself on the forbidden road all the same.

Those are the words I stumble upon when I unearth a hidden journal that once belonged to my grandmother.

A hidden journal that details a heartbreaking affair with her husband’s brother. It’s a family secret I’m unprepared to deal with, especially when my own life begins to parallel hers.

Sawyer Gallagher was never on my radar. The moment I met his younger brother, I was taken. Done for. Love-drunk.

But, some things aren’t meant to last and at the age of thirty-three, I find myself divorced, penniless and living with my parents. When Sawyer stops by our family’s antique store, asking for a job, I figure: Why the heck not? Life can’t get much worse.

It doesn’t take long to realize just how different the Gallagher brothers are. Sawyer is kind, supportive, and, oh, did I mention sexy as hell?

In a small town like ours, I can’t help but ask myself…
Can I fall for my former brother-in-law?
Or is this just history repeating itself?

This is a standalone novel.
