THE LOST WITCH by Paige Crutcher
ISBN 9781250797391 | on sale 12/27/22
1922. The town of Evermore off the coast of Ireland is under the protection of a Goddess. She has bestowed power upon village healer Brigid Heron to ensure the heart of magic within the Lough of Brionglóid—the lake of dreams—remains untouched. For the witches of Knight want to absorb its powerful energies and release the Damned from the Otherworld. Brigid has devoted her whole life to being Evermore’s guardian, immersing herself in witchcraft, and sacrificing her own dreams. Until Luc Knightly, a trickster god with his own claim on the lough, offers Brigid her heart’s desire in exchange for betraying her Goddess’s trust.
2022. A century later, Evermore is under siege. The witches of Knight wield chaos magic, opening the rift between the island and the Otherworld wider every day. Beings born from folklore nightmares prey on the villagers, consuming their very humanity. Ophelia Gallagher, Brigid’s descendent, and her fellow witch Finola McEntire do their best to keep the monsters and mayhem at bay.
Brigid awakens in this world with no memory of how she traveled into the future, and why Evermore has been cursed. To seal the lough and stop the witches of Knight, she must work with Ophelia and Finola to help her remember the events of a hundred years ago. But the knowledge she seeks lies with Luc Knightly himself—mysterious, handsome, and powerful—and the one who once upon a time granted Brigid her dearest wish—a daughter.
To save Evermore, Brigid may have to lose her daughter—again…
Some people greet the day with open arms. Sheriff Sunshine Vicram would rather give it a hearty shove and get back into bed, because there’s just too much going on right now. There’s a series of women going missing, and Sunny feels powerless to stop it. There’s her persistent and awesomely-rebellious daughter Auri, who’s out to singlehandedly become Del Sol’s youngest and fiercest investigator. And then there’s drama with Levi Ravinder—the guy she’s loved and lusted after for years. The guy who might just be her one and only. The guy who comes from a family of disingenuous vipers looking to oust him—and Sunshine—for good.
Like we said, the new day can take a hike.
The blockbuster conclusion to the bestselling Sunshine Vicram trilogy, A HARD DAY FOR A HANGOVER will have readers laughing and cheering to the very last page.

Outside the last city on Earth, the planet is a wasteland. Without the genes of the fallen, humanity will end.
Antigone’s parents are dead. Passing into the Archive should be cause for celebration, but with her militant uncle Kreon rising to claim her father’s vacant throne, all Antigone feels is rage.

But her uncle will soon learn that no cage is unbreakable. And neither is he.

It’s the last part of the equation for the happy life she knows she deserves. But you have to kiss a lot of frogs until you find your prince—from hotshot lawyers to looks-great-on-paper types, Indigo’s dating life is red hot! But if it is long-lasting love she wants… she may need to look no further than right in front of her.
For fans of Elizabeth Hoyt and Sarah MacLean, London’s best matchmaker must ensure a complicated duke marries a wealthy wallflower. Too bad the duke is falling in love with her instead.
With seven bridegrooms well matched, budding businesswoman Poppy White is gaining a reputation as London’s best matchmaker. Now, she needs to pull off the biggest match of the Season: awkward wallflower Miss Harriet Tillmont and the persnickety Duke of Crestmont. Matching the duke will enable Poppy to care for her ailing mother and secure a love match for her younger sister. One last match, the match of her life, the most important match of all.
If the Duke of Crestmont doesn’t produce an heir soon, his dukedom will fall to his cousin who’d just as soon pillage the land and let their people starve than care for it. Step one? Acquire a proper wife. Enter Poppy, who suggests Miss Harriet Tillmont, a lady who sings like an angel and serves a perfect cup of tea. If only Matthew wasn’t so distracted by the mouthy, infuriating, and utterly kissable Poppy—a woman whose personality is more suited to being a carriage salesman than a duchess, and who seems immune to his presence.
Poppy is not immune. She needs to match the complicated duke, not fall in love with him. And yet, here she is. A romantic link between Poppy and the duke will not only ruin her reputation and kill her business, but if the duke doesn’t marry Harriet, Poppy’s beloved sister will lose the man she loves forever.
