Le manuscrit proscrit de Nur Jahan de Cécilia Correia
Dorsetshire, 25 octobre 1836
Les mots me manquent pour exprimer mon ressenti en reprenant, moins d’un an après mon retour en Angleterre, les annotations diverses effectuées au cours de mon expédition en Inde. Quiconque viendrait à les lire pourrait penser à tort que la raison m’a abandonnée. Que le Ciel m’en soit témoin, ce n’est point le cas.
C’est avec une appréhension certaine que je me replonge dans cette aventure, là où tout a commencé, non loin du Cap des Aiguilles, alors que la fureur d’une terrible tempête était sur le point de s’abattre sur notre vaisseau…
Never, Never part 2 by Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher
“Never forget that I was your first real kiss. Never forget that you’ll be my last.
And never stop loving me between all of them.
Never stop, Charlie.
Silas races against time as more truths unravel, while others twist tighter together. And now, the stakes are higher as Silas’ control slips and others begin to point fingers. Charlie is in trouble and he must be the one to bridge the chasm between their past and their present. Because somewhere between I love yous and Never Nevers and Never Agains, a truth they can’t imagine, beckons to be found.
“Where are you, Charlie?”

Eight Grave After Dark by Darynda Jones
With twelve hellhounds after her, pregnant Charley Davidson takes refuge at the only place she thinks they can’t get to her: the grounds of an abandoned convent. But after months of being cooped up there, Charley is ready to pop. Both metaphorically and literally since she is now roughly the size of a beached whale. Fortunately, a new case has captured her attention, one that involves a murder on the very grounds the team has taken shelter upon. A decades-old murder of the newly-vowed nun she keeps seeing in the shadows is almost enough to pull her out of her doldrums.
Charley’s been forbidden to step foot off the sacred grounds. While the angry hellhounds can’t traverse the consecrated soil, they can lurk just beyond its borders. They have the entire team on edge, especially Reyes. And if Charley didn’t know better, she would swear Reyes is getting sick. He grows hotter with every moment that passes, his heat scorching across her skin every time he’s near, but naturally he swears he’s fine.
While the team searches for clues on the Twelve, Charley just wants answers and is powerless to get them. But the mass of friends they’ve accrued helps. They convince her even more that everyone in her recent life has somehow been drawn to her, as though they were a part of a bigger picture all along. But the good feelings don’t last for long because Charley is about to get the surprise of her crazy, mixed-up, supernatural life….
Happily ever, never by Jennifer Foor
I was about to marry the man of my dreams. We had it all; a life that most could only wish for. I felt like the luckiest woman in the world.
Then, in the blink of an eye, it was taken from me.
Now I can’t grasp how to move forward. I don’t even think I want to. Whether I’m dead or alive, my happily ever after is NEVER going to happen.
