SECOND CHANCES | HOLIDAY ROMANCE
An imaginary hedgehog fairy made me famous.
A blizzard made me fall in love.
When I was a kid I used to doodle pictures of my best friend.
Well, my best imaginary friend: Harley the Hedgehog Fairy.
Turns out that making up stories about her catapulted me into children’s book stardom.
Now I’m living my dream and working from home.
I’d rather spend my time creating stories than face the real world.
Except, my agent has other plans. He’s booked me on a signing tour across the country.
Six weeks outside of my comfort zone.
I thought that was painful – until I saw Morgan Bradford entering a bookstore holding the hand of a little girl.
He told me he didn’t want commitment.
But I guess he didn’t want commitment with me.
After five painful minutes, I see him off and hope we never cross paths again.
I’m not that lucky.
A blizzard, a car accident and a concussion send me back to Winter Valley…
And under Morgan’s care.
Maybe I am that lucky.

She’s cursed to live out romance tropes gone wrong. As a millionaire bad boy looking for a fake girlfriend, he is one. They’re a disaster in the making…and each other’s last hope.
Yes, really. I broke a boy’s heart because he wasn’t romance hero material, and his nonna cursed me to live out my favorite plotlines…without the happy ending. Consider my track record:
Second-chance romance? Turns out my old flame returned home to cook meth, not take care of his parents.
Redeemed bad boy? He writes to me occasionally from prison.
Billionaire businessman? Rory was my prince charming…right up until his ex-girlfriend showed up with a baby bump.
My love life is a lost cause, but my friends claim they have a solution. They’re convinced I can rip control from the curse by seeking out a trope situation instead of getting sucked into one.

I’m the screw-up spare to my brother, the heir—the Littlefield who can never do anything right. Now my brother’s making a huge mistake, and I’m expected to celebrate. Instead, I do what any half-intelligent man would: I hire a date to stir up trouble at his engagement party.
Tina’s not my type, but there’s something about her…
Maybe it’s that she seems completely immune to my charm. I’ve never met a challenge I didn’t want to screw up…or screw.

Kicking off a brand new small town series, this is the story of Winslow Covington—Quincy, Montana’s new chief of police—who is determined to prove herself to the community and show them she didn’t earn her position because her grandfather is the mayor. And apparently, all she has to do is earn favour with the town’s founding family, the Edens. Unfortunately, her one-night stand with their eldest son could throw a wrench in her plans. Griffin Eden is insufferable, arrogant, keeps reminding her that she’s an outsider, and Winslow does her best to avoid him, but when a woman is found dead on Eden property, the two of them have no choice but to cross paths again and again. Devney Perry is a consistent powerhouse in the small-town romance subgenre, delivering well-layered, emotionally charged stories that grip you from the start, and this series promises to be Perry at her best. We are kept guessing until the very end, and I’ll be honest with you, I never saw the twist coming. A must-read.

After falling in love with her beautiful writing in The Widow of Rose House, I knew that I would read any book that Diana Biller ever wrote, especially one set in that same world. In her new novel, she takes us to 1870s Paris, France with a story of first loves and second chances. Amelie St. James, prima ballerina of the Paris Opera Ballet, has turned herself into a living saint in the eyes of the public in order to protect the life she has struggled to build for her and her younger sister. But when ghosts of women she once knew come back to haunt her, and then her first love reappears in her life looking as devastatingly handsome as ever, Amelie has no other choice but to let him help her. Soon, old feelings reignite, dark memories from their shared past are brought to the surface, and the young lovers must decide once and for all whether there is a future for them, even with their lives an ocean apart. Biller brings a familiar gothic feel to a thrilling new setting, and I loved every second of it.
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!
