A defiant Victorian wife fights to escape a bad marriage but her love for a forbidden man jeopardizes her chance at freedom.

James Standish knows how to play society’s game. He’ll follow the rules, marry a virginal debutante, and inherit a massive fortune. At least, that’s the plan until he meets Francesca Thorne. She’s not the sort of woman a respectable gentleman like James could ever marry—not least because, strictly speaking, she’s married already.

Francesca is determined to flout convention and divorce her philandering husband. When James sweet talks his way into her life tasked with convincing her to abandon her dream of freedom, she’s unprepared for the passion that flares between them.

Torn apart by conflicting desires, James and Francesca must choose whether to keep chasing the lives they’ve always wanted or take a chance on a new and forbidden love.

Featuring Author Cambria Hebert

Here today to celebrate the cover reveal of Cambria Hebert’s upcoming release Wish!

Title: Wish (Westbrook Elite #3)
Author: Cambria Hebert
Genre: MM Romance/ College Sports Romance/ Romantic Suspense/ New Adult Romance
Release Date: January 10, 2023

For me, choice might as well be a wish.
My parents died in a fiery car crash when I was barely sixteen.
I’m gay.
I’m also totally in love with my brother.
I didn’t choose any of that. In fact, I’ve tried like hell to deny it. But here I am in all my gay, brother-loving, no-parentals glory.
Technically, Max isn’t my brother. Not by blood anyway. That should make it less ick, right?
Considering he calls my parents mom and dad, probably not.
Also, did I mention he’s straight?
So that’s me: the freestyle swimmer doing my best to keep my sexuality on the down-low while simultaneously wishing my feelings for Max will evaporate into thin air.
Too bad he acts like he’s my keeper and my heart shakes every time his eyebrow ring glints in the sun or he levels his opaque stare on me with an intensity matched by nothing else.
My desire to keep my personal life personal drowns at the bottom of the pool when a fellow Elite lets everyone in on my business, which throws Max into macho protective mode all over again.
Enough is enough, though. I’m forcing myself to move on.
Maybe the best way to forget about my forbidden crush is to find a new one.
I have options. More than I realized.
Unfortunately, none of them are leather-wearing, tattoo-sporting, motorcycle-riding grumpholes.
So here I am wishing for Max while someone else wishes for me.
Someone who decides if they can’t have me…
No one will.

Please note that WISH contains homophobia. There is also mention of off-page child abuse and parental death. This book also contains a male/male sibling-esque relationship and mentions of male assault. Some readers may find these things uncomfortable.

The vicious claren that used to plague the reunited countries of Medua and Lansera are long gone. So what are the new dark patches appearing in Lady Serra’s second sight? She rushes to King Albrecht to report the danger, only to discover that he’s ailing and Vesperi, Prince Janto’s wife, has fled far to the north to grieve her disappeared daughter.

Ominous creatures once thought mythical are now rampaging through the countryside. Janto sends Serra to investigate.

Celebrating Author Michael Breen’s new release Ever The Night Road!

Title: Ever The Night Road
Author: Michael Breen
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Release Date: November 21, 2022

This is a fantasy. 

Of a City of water and glass. Of drowned things and lost memories lying just below its surface. Of concrete slums, and a decaying Oracle Tower. And a deep underground. 

It is also a fantasy of orphan children. Like Dagny Losh. She is an escape artist. Not a chosen profession but a survival tactic, thrust upon her at a young age to break free from poverty and violence, fever and flood. While others perished, Dagny emerged into a privileged world of polished brass gates and opportunity. But she is an imposter, a misfit in fine clothes. Perfumed with dirty fingernails. 

Now, at seventeen, Dagny remains rudderless and lonely. Longing for a connection to a  changing world. What she finds is a fragment of her old life, before the river washed everything away. A fragment once thought forever lost. And it will take all she has to protect it.

Ever the Night Road is a coming-of-age adventure story. Dagny and an array of companions undertake a high-stakes quest guided by the stars and ancient myth, encountering danger from both criminal and supernatural forces. Along the way, Dagny will discover the bonds of true friendship, young love and the depths of her own bravery in a brutal and enchanting world.

Genre: Fantasy
Release Date: November 15, 2022

The last thing they need is the undeniable passion between them.

A Light in the Flame, the addictive and unputdownable fantasy romance
and book two in the bestselling Flesh and Fire series from #1 New York
Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout is now available!
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout comes book

two in her Flesh and Fire series…

The only one who can save Sera now is the one she spent her life planning to kill.

The truth about Sera’s plan is out, shattering the fragile trust forged between her and
Nyktos. Surrounded by those distrustful of her, all Sera has is her duty. She will do
anything to end Kolis, the false King of Gods, and his tyrannical rule of Iliseeum, thus

stopping the threat he poses to the mortal realm.

Nyktos has a plan, though, and as they work together, the last thing they need is the
undeniable, scorching passion that continues to ignite between them. Sera cannot
afford to fall for the tortured Primal, not when a life no longer bound to a destiny she
never wanted is more attainable than ever. But memories of their shared pleasure and

unrivaled desire are a siren’s call impossible to resist.

And as Sera begins to realize that she wants to be more than a Consort in name only,
the danger surrounding them intensifies. The attacks on the Shadowlands are
increasing, and when Kolis summons them to Court, a whole new risk becomes
apparent. The Primal power of Life is growing inside her, pushing her closer to the end
of her Culling. And without Nyktos’s love—an emotion he’s incapable of feeling—she
won’t survive her Ascension. That is if she even makes it to her Ascension and Kolis
doesn’t get to her first. Because time is running out. For both her and the realms.
