It will turn their world upside down, and each of them must grapple with a new reality, strengthening their relationships with one another, and discovering who they are now as grown women, in spite of him.

There hasn’t been a book in this series that I haven’t loved cover to cover, quickly earning Kerrigan Byrne the place of one of my favourite Historical Romance writers ever, and Inspector Morley’s story did not disappoint. The tale of a man whose tragic past has shaped him into a man with an implacable sense of justice, but who struggles daily to reconcile three very different parts of himself—the methodical police inspector, the vengeful vigilante, and the broken-hearted boy with a decades-old secret. In what begins as a case of mistaken identities and culminates in a murder he must solve, Morley finds himself married to a woman he cannot resist—a woman who also happens to be his only murder suspect. Byrne knows how to infuse her storytelling with just the right balance of heart, steam and mystery, weaving a tale that took my breath away from the get-go.
A fervent celebration of perseverance and self-determination, this is the tale of a woman forging her own trailblazing path in life, and doing it on her own terms. It’s complicated, it’s messy, it’s bittersweet, it’s beautiful, it’s unflinchingly real, but a story about love is rarely black and white, and every single second of it is just as it should be. A triumph!
This book is UNPUTDOWNABLE. A tender, slow-burning romance between two celebrity nemeses, it also portrays oh-so perfectly the twisted world of social media influencers, with the story of one young woman’s rise from shy, insecure wallflower to overnight internet sensation with millions of followers tracking her every step. Alessandra Torre’s writing is crisp and addictive, as always, and at a time when I can’t even read a recipe without my mind drifting off half way through, I quite literally DEVOURED this book, smiling cover to cover.
There are writers whose prose is so vivid and so emotionally resonant, that you might briefly forget you’re reading a work of fiction, and while Alice Archer has already proven that her hand is as elegant as it is masterful, her newest novel continues to show real insight into the human soul. An eye-opening exploration of the profoundly visceral relationship between a person’s past and present, this is the tale of two men whose chance encounter ends up being the lifeline they both so desperately needed to make a change. Archer builds their story slowly, with beautiful language and setting, lovingly weaving her sentences into a powerful tapestry of emotion that holds the reader captive through and through. She’s a poet at heart, a born storyteller, and I can’t shout this book’s praises loud enough.
Devney Perry kicks off an exciting new series with the story of a woman who, following a painful divorce, sets off on a cross-country road trip, chasing the one thing she lost along the way—herself. It’s a fresh, sizzling, deeply satisfying read that once more solidified my love for Perry’s brand of storytelling, delivering everything I always know I’ll find in her books—emotion, intensity, great chemistry between the characters, and a heroine who is determined to live life on her own terms.
Myths, legends, and folk lore are brought to life once again in Samantha Young’s second instalment in her seductive True Immortality series, as she spins another spellbinding tale set in this fantastical new world with the story of a young woman who finds herself the target of a two-thousand-year-old vendetta. By never taking her foot off the gas, Young delivers the kind of action-packed page-turner that both grips you like an undertow and cuts straight to the heart, and every second of it is just perfect. Regardless of whether paranormal romance is your jam, regardless of whether this is your first or tenth novel from this terrific author, do yourself a favour and dive into this series as soon as you can. You’ll thank me later.
