BOOK OF THE MONTH

by Lauren Graham

 
From Lauren Graham, the star of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood, comes a witty, charming, and hilariously relatable debut novel and New York Times bestseller about a struggling young actress trying to get ahead, and keep it together, in New York City.

It's January 1995, and Franny Banks has just six months left of the three-year deadline she set for herself when she came to New York, dreaming of Broadway and doing 'important' work. But all she has to show for her efforts so far is a part in an ad for ugly Christmas sweaters, and a gig waiting tables at a comedy club. Her roommates; her best friend Jane, and Dan, an aspiring sci-fi writer, are supportive, yet Franny knows a two-person fan club doesn't exactly count as success. Everyone tells her she needs a backup plan, and though she can almost picture moving back home and settling down with her perfectly nice ex-boyfriend, she's not ready to give up on her goal of having a career like her idols Diane Keaton and Meryl Streep. Not just yet. But while she dreams of filling their shoes, in the meantime, she'd happily settle for a speaking part in almost anything, and finding a hair product combination that works.

Everything is riding on the upcoming showcase for her acting class, where she'll finally have a more...

Ria's starting to settle into country life herself...until she has a close encounter of the terrifying kind with a buffalo. Turns out the peeping monster belongs to the cowboy next door--and he has her running even more scared than his bison. She wants a home where the buffalo don't roam, and the men don't either.

by
Renee Carlino

Mia Kelly thinks she has it all figured out. She's an Ivy League graduate, a classically trained pianist, and the beloved daughter of a sensible mother and offbeat father. Yet Mia has been stalling since graduation, torn between putting her business degree to use and exploring music, her true love.

When her father unexpectedly dies, she decides to pick up the threads of his life while she figures out her own. Uprooting herself from Ann Arbor to New York City, Mia takes over her father's cafe, a treasured neighbor­hood institution that plays host to undiscovered musicians and artists. She's denied herself the thrilling and unpredictable life of a musician, but a chance encounter with Will, a sweet, gorgeous, and charming guitar­ist, offers her a glimpse of what could be. When Will becomes her friend and then her roommate, she does everything in her power to suppress her passions - for him, for music - but her father's legacy slowly opens her heart to the possibility of something more.

Getting hot between the covers...

by
J. Kenner

For fans of Fifty Shades of Grey, Bared to You, and Release Me comes an all-new erotic series of three enigmatic and powerful men, and the striking women who can bring them to their knees.

He is everything I crave, all I desperately want - and he is everything I can't have.

Evan Black embodies my every fantasy. He is brilliant, fierce, and devastatingly handsome. But he is also headstrong, dangerous, and burdened with secrets.

My family warned me to stay away, that I could never handle Evan's dark dealings or scarred past. Maybe I should have listened. Maybe I should have run. But our desire is undeniable, and some temptations you just can't fight.

And from the moment we touch - the passion between us consuming us both - I know that I will never be the same.

PARANORMAL ROMANCE

Dark, sensual, supernatural romance...
Click here for more details or to order DARK WOLF
by
Christine Feehan

In Dark Lycan, Christine Feehan journeyed into the heart of the Carpathians, and into the souls of two lifemates stirred by the flush of passion and the threat of annihilation. In Dark Wolf, the breathtaking story continues as the bonds of family are imperiled, and the fate of two lovers lies hidden in the seductive shadows between life and death.
 
Skyler Daratrazanoff always recognized the miracle that was Dimitri Tirunul, a man beyond any dream that had ever engaged her nights. But she was human. Vulnerable. He was Carpathian. Nearly immortal. She was nineteen. He was an ancient. Yet she held half his soul, the light to his darkness. Without her, he would not survive. Caught between the two warring species, Dimitri has spent centuries hunting the undead to keep his people free, and humans safe. He had survived honorably when others had chosen to give up their souls. But now, marked for extermination by the Lycans, Dimitri found himself alone, and fearing for his life. But salvation was coming?

No Lycan would ever suspect someone like Skyler to dare mount a secret rescue operation. A teenage girl. A human of untested abilities. But she had something no one else had. She was predestined for Dimitri?as he was for her. And there was nothing stronger for Skyler than her desire to see her life-dream come true. Whatever the risk.

LIFE'S LOVELY THINGS
KNIT YOUR OWN BOYFRIEND
by Carol Meldrum

HOW TO BE A HEROINE
by Samantha Ellis

Click here for more details or to order


Finding the perfect man can be difficult, but this great new book has the answer - knit your own!

First decide what you want your knitted boyfriend to look like. Decide on his height, build and skin colour and then turn to the hairstyle gallery. There are woolly beards, moustaches, quiffs or dreadlocks to choose from. Then decide what he does for a living. Like a man in knitted uniform? Make your boyfriend into a chef, doctor, a fireman or a policeman. Prefer something a little smarter? Knit a suit, tie and briefcase and make him into a lawyer, banker or accountant. Or if you want something more exciting, we have patterns to make an astronaut, rock star, surfer or even an explorer. Can't decide? Mix and match our clothing patterns to create a whole wardrobe.

And the best thing about a knitted boyfriend? He doesn't answer back!

On a pilgrimage to Wuthering Heights with her best friend, Samantha Ellis found herself arguing about which heroine she liked best: Jane Eyre or Cathy Earnshaw. She was all for wild, free, passionate Cathy, but her friend found Cathy silly, a snob who betrays Heathcliff for Edgar and makes them all unhappy - while Jane makes her own way. And that's when she realised that all her life she'd been trying to be Cathy when she should have been trying to be Jane.

So she decided to look again - and harder - at all the heroines she'd loved through her life, from her earliest obsessions with the Little Mermaid and Anne of Green Gables; and then on to Scarlett O'Hara, Sylvia Plath, the Dolls (of the Valley); and later Riders, Buffy, Flora Poste from Cold Comfort Farm and many, many more. Some of her heroines more...

by
Ros Baxter

Thanks to Escape Publishing, we have a free ebook novella to give away to our romance fans!

Click here  to access your free romance read, White Christmas by Ros Baxter. Enjoy!

Blurb: What if your only chance at survival was to seduce the man who broke your heart?

Seventeen years after the Apocalypse, Admiral-class Explorer Tabysha is caught up in a firefight and shot down over Tyver, where ice vampires hunt human warmth. Seeking shelter in an ice cave, she is instructed to stay put and await rescue. But after another ship crash-lands, and the Hunter Gatherers stalk its wounded pilot, Tabi breaks protocol.

When it turns out the survivor is the man who stole her heart then skipped out on her ten years before, it seems to Tabi that no good deed goes unpunished, and things can't get any worse. But she's so wrong.

As the Hunters pick up the escalating heat signature of the former lovers, Tabi has to tell Asha that there is only one way to repel the creatures stalking them.

And it involves picking up where they left off ten years before.
