AGE GAP + FORBIDDEN ROMANCE
I wasn’t supposed to want him. The bronzed god lying by my pool in tight shorts that left little to the imagination. But I was only human, and with the temptation constantly within reach, it was only a matter of time before I could no longer resist.
It was wrong. I knew that.
He was my son’s age.
Hell, he was my son’s friend.
But even worse…I was his teacher.

ENEMIES TO LOVERS | HOLIDAY ROMANCE
He loathes the holidays. She loves them. She’s full of festive cheer. He’s brimming with Bah, Humbugs. Besides unreasonably seasonable names, the only thing Jonathan Frost and Gabriella Di Natale have in common is a healthy dose of mutual contempt. Well, that and the same place of employment at the city’s most beloved independent bookstore, Bailey’s Bookshop. But when the store’s owners confess its dire financial state, Jonathan and Gabby discover another unfortunate commonality: the imminent threat of unemployment.
With the Baileys’ requests to minimize expenses, win new customers, and make record sales dancing in their heads, Jonathan and Gabby conclude—barring a financial Christmas miracle—one of them will soon be cut from the payroll. Neither are willing to step down from their position, so they strike a bargain: whoever has more sales in December gets to stay on in the new year; the loser will resign. With a lifetime’s worth of festive tricks up her sleeve, Gabby should easily outsell her nemesis, except the unreadable Mr. Frost’s every move seems purely designed to throw her off her game.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, Gabby’s deceptive ex won’t quit pursuing her, and her anonymous online friend suggests they take a break. Worst of all, as the pressure mounts to save the bookshop and her job, Gabby meets a new, tender side of Jonathan. Is this the same man she’s called her cold-hearted enemy?
Maybe he’s got a motive she just can’t figure out—or maybe Jonathan Frost isn’t as chilly as she once thought. Maybe Jonathan and Gabby already know—and love—each other in ways they never thought possible.

Jax doesn’t want to fall for Andrew, but soon he’s worming his way into her life. Together, they infiltrate Richter to discover if it has returned to its covert purpose: training children to be spies and assassins and blackmailing parents to look the other way. As the attraction between the two intensifies, so do the secrets exploding all around them. How deadly are those secrets—and who will survive?
This is the third book in the Richter series of standalone novels with interconnected characters.

TIME TRAVEL ROMANCE
The past may seem the safest place to be . . . but it is the most dangerous time to be alive. . . .
Jamie Fraser and Claire Randall were torn apart by the Jacobite Rising in 1746, and it took them twenty years to find each other again. Now the American Revolution threatens to do the same.
It is 1779 and Claire and Jamie are at last reunited with their daughter, Brianna, her husband, Roger, and their children on Fraser’s Ridge. Having the family together is a dream the Frasers had thought impossible.
Yet even in the North Carolina backcountry, the effects of war are being felt. Tensions in the Colonies are great and local feelings run hot enough to boil Hell’s teakettle. Jamie knows loyalties among his tenants are split and it won’t be long until the war is on his doorstep.
Brianna and Roger have their own worry: that the dangers that provoked their escape from the twentieth century might catch up to them. Sometimes they question whether risking the perils of the 1700s—among them disease, starvation, and an impending war—was indeed the safer choice for their family.
Not so far away, young William Ransom is still coming to terms with the discovery of his true father’s identity—and thus his own—and Lord John Grey has reconciliations to make, and dangers to meet . . . on his son’s behalf, and his own.
Meanwhile, the Revolutionary War creeps ever closer to Fraser’s Ridge. And with the family finally together, Jamie and Claire have more at stake than ever before.

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.
Karen Booth returns to the beauty circles of Manhattan with another ‘over-40 romance’ showing us it’s never too late to find true love in life. 42-year-old Brooklyn Monroe’s professional life continues to flourish, but her love life is a complete fail. With no man in her life, she knows that her dreams of motherhood will remain just that unless she is willing to do it on her own, but then an in-office joke gets accidentally sent to thousands of men all across the country asking them to get her pregnant, and the only way to make her PR nightmare go away is by doing a soul-baring interview on national TV. Enter talk show host Alec Trakas, the silver fox fantasy of millions of women and Brooklyn’s ex-boyfriend. Fate has thrown them back together. Sparks are flying. But is the timing finally right? As my own years begin to add up, I find myself gravitating more and more towards stories like these, and this book gave me ALL the feels.
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!
