Born shrouded in the veil of the Primals, a Maiden as the Fates promised, Seraphena Mierel’s future has never been hers. Chosen before birth to uphold the desperate deal her ancestor struck to save his people, Sera must leave behind her life and offer herself to the Primal of Death as his Consort.
However, Sera’s real destiny is the most closely guarded secret in all of Lasania—she’s not the well protected Maiden but an assassin with one mission—one target. Make the Primal of Death fall in love, become his weakness, and then…end him. If she fails, she dooms her kingdom to a slow demise at the hands of the Rot.
Sera has always known what she is. Chosen. Consort. Assassin. Weapon. A specter never fully formed yet drenched in blood. A monster. Until him. Until the Primal of Death’s unexpected words and deeds chase away the darkness gathering inside her. And his seductive touch ignites a passion she’s never allowed herself to feel and cannot feel for him. But Sera has never had a choice. Either way, her life is forfeit—it always has been, as she has been forever touched by Life and Death.
This is the first book in the all-new Flesh and Fire series, set in the Blood and Ash world but taking place many years before the events in that series.

FAKE DATING + AGE GAP
Single mother April Parker has lived in Willow Creek for twelve years with a wall around her heart. On the verge of being an empty nester, she’s decided to move on from her quaint little town, and asks her friend Mitch for his help with some home improvement projects to get her house ready to sell.
Mitch Malone is known for being the life of every party, but mostly for the attire he wears to the local Renaissance Faire—a kilt (and not much else) that shows off his muscled form to perfection. While he agrees to help April, he needs a favor too: she’ll pretend to be his girlfriend at an upcoming family dinner, so that he can avoid the lectures about settling down and having a more “serious” career than high school coach and gym teacher. April reluctantly agrees, but when dinner turns into a weekend trip, it becomes hard to tell what’s real and what’s been just for show. But when the weekend ends, so must their fake relationship.
As summer begins, Faire returns to Willow Creek, and April volunteers for the first time. When Mitch’s family shows up unexpectedly, April pretends to be Mitch’s girlfriend again…and it doesn’t feel so fake anymore. Despite their obvious connection, April insists they’ve just been putting on an act. But when there’s the chance for something real, she has to decide whether to change her plans—and open her heart—for the kilt-wearing hunk who might just be the love of her life.

Set against an important historical backdrop of political activism and change, Evie Dunmore’s A League of Extraordinary Women series epitomises the very spirit of the women whose passion, vision, tenacity, and courage powered the suffrage movement in Britain. The third book in the series focuses on London banking heiress and Oxford scholar Hattie Greenfield, who, after being caught in a compromising position, finds herself married to the ruthless financier Lucian Blackstone. Their attraction is palpable, but while Hattie continues to hold on to her romantic notions of love and wedded bliss, Lucian is driven by an old desire for revenge . . . until a journey to Scotland slowly changes everything between the newlyweds. Based on the Beauty and the Beast romance trope, this was one of my most eagerly anticipated reads of the year, and rightfully so. Evie Dunmore’s beautiful writing simply dazzles as she brings together two characters who never expected to find love with one another. My fave in the series so far!
There are stories that, quite simply, change the fabric of a genre in my eyes, and Helen Hoang astonishes with the strength of her storytelling and the powerful emotional resonance of her searing new novel. This marvellous, eye-opening, and at times, confronting read explores so poignantly a young woman’s battle to find herself and her own strength within a demanding, traditional Chinese-American family, whilst also learning to embrace the love of a man who accepts her as she is. Every character Helen Hoang writes is vivid and beautiful, but she has truly gone above and beyond with the two leads in this intimately written wonder of a novel.
As we bid farewell to Clifton Forge, Montana, we are reminded once again what a tremendous storyteller Devney Perry truly is. With an emotionally charged tale that grips you by the throat from the very first page, Perry serves up the perfect storm to bring together two people who were destined to hate one another. And it should come as no surprise that, in a series that never lacked in twists and turns, she’s saved the best for last.
We return to the Scottish Highlands as another member of the Adair family finds their happily ever after in Samantha Young’s electric new romance. We met Thane Adair in Here With Me as Lachlan’s younger brother and single dad of two, and we now find him in need of a nanny for his children. Enter Regan Penhaligon, an American visiting her sister while also hiding from someone who has grown dangerously obsessed with her. As Thane’s children grow fonder and fonder of their new nanny, the young widower also struggles with his growing attraction to her, but as both their pasts threaten to take everything away from them, only trusting one another will give them a fighting chance at happiness. What it lacks in twists and turns compared to the fist book in the series, this story makes up in angst, and the hero is a bossy alpha in the bedroom, so that alone was enough to have my heart racing.
