  1. Read Between the Lines by Rachel Lacey

Will Jane be able to write her way to a happy ending when their online identities are uncovered, or is Rosie’s heart a closed book?

  1. Those Who Wait by Haley Cass

Sutton Spencer’s goals in life were very straightforward: complete graduate school and find love. If she could decide precisely what she should do after graduating in less than a year, life would be much simpler. Oh, and it would be wonderful if she could learn how to converse with a woman without coming across as a complete disaster. 

The complete opposite is Charlotte Thompson. She has never had the time or desire for romance and has always had defined milestones detailing her road to achievement. She values her budding political career greatly and is unwilling to give it up for something as trivial as love. Swift, easygoing, and discrete were all ideal. It’s instantly obvious that they aren’t compatible for anything more than friendship when they first meet through a dating app. Right?

  1. Change Of Heart by Clare Lydon

For her parents’ anniversary party, Erin Stewart hires a false date, but she ends up getting more than she anticipated. She first lands Steph Mitchell, a professional actor who is moreover stunning. Second, she encounters a solid barrier of conflict in the family. Just five days remain. Take a deep breath. Furthermore, she can certainly overcome it with Steph’s assistance, right?

But Erin didn’t anticipate that her fictitious romance with the attractive Steph would seem so intensely authentic. She also doesn’t foresee their explosive attraction going out of hand and having disastrous results for everyone. Is Steph destined to be Erin’s downfall or vice versa?

  1. Payback’s a Witch by Lana Harper

Emmy Harlow is a witch, but she isn’t a very strong one—in part because she hasn’t visited the magical hamlet of Thistle Grove in years. Her self-imposed exile has a lot to do with her tangled family background and desire to make her own place in the world, and only the slightest bit to do with Gareth Blackmoore, who is the heir to the most potent magical family in the area and a habitual heartbreaker and dream-destroyer.

The tug of tradition (or the genuinely spectacular parental guilt trip that goes along with it) is apparently powerful enough to lure Emmy back when a spellcasting competition for which her family participates as arbiters approaches. She has made it her mission to fulfill her family’s expectations, spend quality time with her best friend Linden Thorn, and return to her normal life in Chicago.

Emmy meets Talia Avramov, a fierce expert in the darker magical arts, on her first night back. Talia is just getting over a breakup with Gareth Blackmoore. When Talia gave in to charm, she found that Linden and Gareth were seeing each other secretly. She now seeks retaliation, as does Linden. Is Emmy in? It’s the only remaining question.

However, what worries her the most is why she keeps picturing the terrifyingly smart, stunningly beautiful, and seductively alluring Talia Avramov.

  1. Our Wives Under the Sea by Julia Armfield

It has altered Leah. She was a marine biologist who had earlier left for an usual excursion; but, this time, her submarine became aground. Her wife Miri recognizes that something is not right when she eventually emerges and arrives home. Leah wanders between their apartment’s rooms, barely eating and preoccupied with her thoughts while turning on the faucets day and night. Leah had brought a piece of whatever occurred on that ship—or whatever it was they were supposed to be learning before they became stranded—with her to their home on dry land. The thought that the woman she loves is eluding her grasp must be faced as Miri looks for explanations in her desperation to learn what transpired below the surface of the ocean.
