Rosie Danan proves once again to have a real knack for crafting intriguing storylines with deeply complex characters that feel both wonderous and real, and in her latest novel, she pairs a tenacious expert in the occult with a wary archaeologist in need of professional redemption. Add a cursed Scottish castle to the mix, an ancient magic with its own cryptic agenda, and the result is downright spellbinding. I loved this book before I even read it, but I never expected it to become one of my favourite reads of the year.

Kristen Ashley returns with the fantastically atmospheric tale of American heiress Daphne Ryan who finds herself summoned to Duncroft House—her younger sister’s new boyfriend’s ancestral family home—to meet his parents and brother. However, as Daphne soon realises, Duncroft House appears to be haunted by all the women who died there under mysterious circumstances, and they all seem to be currently targeting Daphne. Enter Ian Alcott, the very alpha, very bossy heir to the earldom, who steps in to protect Daphne, while also doing his best to solve the mystery of Duncroft House. Ashley masterfully weaves in elements of the supernatural to draw a gripping tale of love, suspense, and things that go bump in the night. I read this book in a single sitting.

I have been devouring Cherise Sinclair romances for over a decade now, and the Mountain Masters series was one of my first forays into her writing, so returning to this world felt like coming home. Newly divorced Erin Lockwood has been left penniless by her criminal ex-husband who, after emptying all their bank accounts, fled the country to escape arrest. In a desperate attempt to restart her life away from the bad memories that continue to haunt her, she retreats to the small mountain town of Bear Flat and the house gifted to her by her late mother, only to realise that the legacy of her husband’s crimes still reverberates through the lives of everyone in town. The last thing Erin needs right now is to get involved with anyone, but when she meets wilderness guide Wyatt Masterson, she can’t help but feel noticed, valued, protected—all the things her ex-husband never made her feel. But as Erin and Wyatt begin to explore each other, in and out of the bedroom, Erin’s past continues to draw closer and closer, threatening to destroy the happiness she has finally found with Wyatt. With the perfect mix of suspense, romance and kink, Cherise Sinclair’s stories continue to be comfort reads for me.

A new Kate Canterbary novel automatically goes on top of my reading pile, no matter what, and I absolutely loved returning to her quirky town of Friendship, Rhode Island. As the eldest son of two well-intentioned but absent-minded parents, Beckett Loew knows a thing or two about how to deal with other people’s problems quickly and efficiently. So, when his parents find themselves embroiled in an embezzlement scam, he returns to their small town to help save the family’s oyster bar, as well as take care of his teenage brother. But things get even more complicated when he realises that the owner of the new café next door to the oyster bar is none other than Sunny duJardin, his best friend’s little sister. And she seems to hate him on sight. They’re complete opposite in every possible way—he’s broody and grumpy, she’s cheery and light—yet the more they bicker, the more they can’t keep their hands off each other. But what happens once all the little fires are out and Beckett has to go back to his old life? I walked away from this book smiling ear to ear.

And she doesn’t know how to tell Hale.
Once Hale discovers that his future has taken a drastic turn, a fear he’s never experienced takes hold.

FORCED PROXIMITY

A millionaire and a woman who thinks he’s a house flipper are stuck living in a house together with a menagerie of rescue dogs as roommates…

After her ex took all their money and bailed, Hazel Bristow is left broke and homeless. A kind friend whose home is on the market lets Hazel and her foster dogs stay there until it sells. It’s the perfect setup, until her friend forgets to tell Hazel she’s sold the house.

Linc Kennedy is shocked to find Hazel and her pups squatting in the house he just bought, but after some negotiating—she offers to cook amazing meals for him in return for a paycheck—he agrees to let her remain while he’s renovating the place. Linc tells Hazel he’s an investor who renovates homes for fun—he just leaves out the part about being wealthy.

Hazel’s intrigued by Linc. He’s funny, sweet, ridiculously hot, and loves dogs almost as much as she does. But her track record with men? Not great. She worries her trust meter isn’t in working order.

Linc’s never met anyone like the quirky beauty who puts everyone’s needs—human and canine—before her own. He didn’t tell her about his wealth because he’s been burned by women who only wanted him for his money. But with Hazel, he’s never felt more like himself. Now he has to figure out how to tell her the truth without losing her. Because Linc realizes what he feels for her isn’t puppy love—it’s true love.

This is a standalone novel.

FRIENDS TO LOVERS + SINGLE PARENT + ONLY ONE BED + SMALL TOWN

Adam Stone is not a saint.
He’s six-foot-two, naughty blue eyes, cocky grin, and a bod blessed by the gods.
He’s a surfer, a soldier, a pilot, and he’s been my friend since I moved to our small town when we were just kids.

But another man took my hand.
He took my innocence, took my trust, and broke my heart.
I was young. I didn’t know love could be a weapon.
I didn’t know the hand that caressed you could also cut you.

Now that man is dead, and I’m a single-mom survivor wearing a mask so perfect, no one knows the truth. Trust doesn’t come easy, and surviving is a hard habit to break.

But when a plumbing disaster leaves me homeless, one night in Adam Stone’s (supposedly) empty bed changes everything.
I’ve hidden my scars so long, I don’t know how else to be, but I want to try.

I’m in love with Adam Stone. I love every glance, every wink, every protective touch…
He says he’s different. He says he loves me and my son, and he wants to take care of us.
I believe in this love.
All I need is a little luck.

SECOND CHANCES

The first year was fun. Simple.

I had a great roommate, and I was hooking up with a basketball player.
Then life happened, and my whole trajectory changed.
Gone was the hook-up. Gone was the roommate.
My new goal in life wasn’t to enjoy it. It was to get through each day by being blissfully numb.

It was working.
Until I woke up in my ex’s bed one morning.
No purse. No phone. No keys.
No memory of what happened.

First things first: I needed to get my ex off my vagi—back. I needed to get him off my back.
I needed to get my things.
I wasn’t sure if I wanted to remember the night before, but my ex was suddenly reminding me how he’s overbearing, arrogant, demanding, and hot.

Damn. He’s still so hot.
He’s also making me remember things that could have disastrous consequences.
For him. For me.
And most certainly for my heart…

This is a Ryan’s Bed spin-off novella.
