Finished Last Week
The Ice Queen by Rebecca Bauer
Ten years after a chilling coup, Aria finds herself trapped in a lifestyle she never chose–one which will damage her future forever. A fortuitous set of circumstances send her back to her home, where she uncovers an inflamed kingdom on the brink of civil war. To lead them, Aria must rediscover the woman she was meant to be–and to take back the seat stolen from her as a child, she must overcome more than just her past. The only way to win is by the blade.
Rebel by Rebecca Yarros
She’ll defy his every expectation.
She’s Penna Carstairs.
The Renegade they call Rebel.
FMX-treme Magazine’s sexiest female athlete of the year.
There’s no rule in extreme sports she hasn’t broken,
No gender barrier she hasn’t demolished.
She’s the woman I met in a bar in Vegas.
The woman I illegally BASE jumped for.
The woman I spent one insane, incredible night with.
But now I’m screwed.
Or rather…not screwed.
Because the woman I can’t get out of my head is the one woman I can never touch again.
I’m Dr. Cruz Delgado—the youngest professor on this campus,
And Penelope Carstairs just walked into my class.
Fallen heir by Erin Watt
These Royals will ruin you.
Easton Royal has it all: looks, money, intelligence. His goal in life is to have as much fun as possible. He never thinks about the consequences because he doesn’t have to.
Until Hartley Wright appears, shaking up his easy life. She’s the one girl who’s said no, despite being attracted to him. Easton can’t figure her out and that makes her all the more irresistible.
Hartley doesn’t want him. She says he needs to grow up.
She might be right.
Rivals. Rules. Regrets. For the first time in Easton’s life, wearing a Royal crown isn’t enough. He’s about to learn that the higher you start, the harder you fall.
L’épouse ennemie de Penny Watson Webb
Face à la reine de France, Brunhilde sent son cœur battre à tout rompre. La souveraine lui a accordé le droit de choisir son époux, et attend à présent sa réponse. Brunhilde sait que tout le monde souhaite qu’elle désigne, sur l’ordre de son frère, l’arrogant seigneur de Valcoudray, dont l’alliance renforcerait sa famille. Ce noble normand est même prêt à passer outre le baiser qu’il a surpris la veille entre elle et Conan de Ker Glenn, leur ennemi breton. Conan, l’homme à qui Brunhilde a caché son identité et qui lui lance aujourd’hui des regards noirs. Si c’est lui qu’elle choisit, il la méprisera, elle le sait, et la traitera comme une étrangère dans sa propre demeure. Mais la paix entre Bretons et Normands serait désormais actée. Consciente des regards qui pèsent sur elle, Brunhilde lève enfin les yeux, déterminée. Elle sait ce qui lui reste à faire.
A different kind of lovely by Petra March
“A man with a damaged soul fell in love with a ballerina with a broken body.”
When Neal Medwin glimpses Mina Automne for the first time, he’s a man whose soul is darkened with memories of a painful past, whereas Mina is a vibrant, strong, young woman. She’s a determined ballerina who’s carefully planning and painting her life.
Neal steps into her existence and threatens to shatter Mina’s plans with an impossible request.
Mina can’t help the fragile man who’s invading her home, even though their parents used to be close friends and she knows of Neal’s hurtful background. She allows him to linger within her lovely and artistic world, however, hoping he might find some peace and solace.
Slowly, their conflict turns into friendship, and eventually into love, until a terrible discovery ruins Mina’s projects and forces her to let go of all her dreams, and of her sweet, damaged man.
Neal is unable to fight for Mina and for the unripe love they share, because he’s not ready to leave his past behind. He’s not strong enough – not yet.
