9781250841001 | 10/11/22
“Strong character development enables readers to understand that Cassie and Erin fall for each other and fit well together despite the taboo nature of their relationship. A sexy and empowering romance.”—Kirkus Reviews
LAVENDER HOUSE by Lev AC Rosen
9781250834225 | 10/18/22
“This book’s real pleasure lies in the richly realized portrayal of its cast and their personal struggles. Rosen puts a welcome gay spin on the traditional country house whodunit.”—Publishers Weekly
BAD GIRL REPUTATION by Elle Kennedy BONUS PICK
9781250796752 | 10/4/22
“Kennedy takes the bad girl–bad boy trope a step further here by exploring what happens when they finally grow up…and she ends up with just the right amount of heartfelt and sexy. A steamy tale of first loves and second chances.”—Kirkus Reviews
LITTLE EVE by Catriona Ward HALL OF FAME
9781250812650 | 10/11/22
“Ward works in so many motifs—Bible resonances, colonialism, science versus faith, and the pall of war, to name just a few—that the play of imagery is as engrossing as the plot twists, making this a rewarding outing from any angle. Horror fans won’t want to miss this.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review
