<b>The #1 <i>New York Times </i>bestseller—a thrilling new romance from E L James, author of the phenomenal bestselling Fifty Shades Trilogy.<br /></b><br /> London, 2019. Life has been easy for Maxim Trevelyan. With his good looks, aristocratic connections, and money, he’s never had to work and he’s rarely slept alone. But all that changes when tragedy strikes and Maxim inherits his family’s noble title, wealth, and estates, and all the responsibility that entails. It’s a role he’s not prepared for and one that he struggles to face.<br />  <br /> But his biggest challenge is fighting his desire for an unexpected, enigmatic young woman who’s recently arrived in England, possessing little more than a dangerous and troublesome past.  Reticent, beautiful, and musically gifted, she’s an alluring mystery, and Maxim’s longing for her deepens into a passion that he’s never experienced and dares not name. Just who is Alessia Demachi? Can Maxim protect her from the malevolence that threatens her? And what will she do when she learns that he’s been hiding secrets of his own?<br />  <br /> From the heart of London through wild, rural Cornwall to the bleak, forbidding beauty of the Balkans, <i>The Mister</i> is a roller-coaster ride of danger and desire that leaves the reader breathless to the very last page.

<p><i><b>Pull up a lounge chair and have a cocktail at Sunset Beach – it comes with a twist.</b></i></p><p>Drue Campbell’s life is adrift. Out of a job and down on her luck, life doesn’t seem to be getting any better when her estranged father, Brice Campbell, a flamboyant personal injury attorney, shows up at her mother’s funeral after a twenty-year absence. Worse, he’s remarried – to Drue’s eighth grade frenemy, Wendy, now his office manager. And they’re offering her a job. </p><p>It seems like the job from hell, but the offer is sweetened by the news of her inheritance – her grandparents’ beach bungalow in the sleepy town of Sunset Beach, a charming but storm-damaged eyesore now surrounded by waterfront McMansions. </p><p>With no other prospects, Drue begrudgingly joins the firm, spending her days screening out the grifters whose phone calls flood the law office. Working with Wendy is no picnic either. But when a suspicious death at an exclusive beach resort nearby exposes possible corruption at her father’s firm, she goes from unwilling cubicle rat to unwitting investigator, and is drawn into a case that may – or may not – involve her father. With an office romance building, a decades-old missing persons case re-opened, and a cottage in rehab, one thing is for sure at Sunset Beach: there’s a storm on the horizon. </p><p><i>Sunset Beach </i>is a compelling ride, full of Mary Kay Andrews' signature wit, heart, and charm.</p>

<b>#1 <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER AND <b>THE PERFECT HOLIDAY GIFT </b><br /><br />A Reese Witherspoon Book Club Pick<br /><br />“Beautifully written and incredibly funny, <i>Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine</i> is about the importance of friendship and human connection. I fell in love with Eleanor, an eccentric and regimented loner whose life beautifully unfolds after a chance encounter with a stranger; I think you will fall in love, too!” <b>—Reese Witherspoon</b><br /></b><br /><b>No one’s ever told Eleanor that life should be better than fine. </b><br /><br />Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy. <br /><br /> But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kinds of friends who rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been living. And it is Raymond’s big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one.<br /><br />Soon to be a major motion picture produced by Reese Witherspoon, <i>Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine</i> is the smart, warm, and uplifting story of an out-of-the-ordinary heroine whose deadpan weirdness and unconscious wit make for an irresistible journey as she realizes. . . <br />  <br /><b> The only way to survive is to open your heart. </b>

Gigi Gallo's childhood was filled with the roar of a motorcycle and the hum of a tattoo gun. Fresh out of college, she was excited to work at her family's tattoo studio--Inked. What she didn't plan on was running into someone tall, dark, and totally sexy from her not-so-innocent past on the very first day.<br /><br />Pike Moore was a bossy biker with a cocky attitude and an even bigger ego. He came to Inked to start over. New town. New job. New roots. None of that included coming face-to-face with the hot chick who spent a wild week in his bed before she vanished without a trace.<br /><br />One touch of Pike's hand and Gigi knew she needed to set him straight, but turning down a man like Pike was damn near impossible.<br /><br />One look in Gigi's eyes and Pike knew a week wasn't enough, but making a play for the boss's daughter could end in disaster. Not just for his new start, but his heart too.<br /><br /><div><i>Flame is book one in the Men of Inked: Heatwave series by USA Today bestselling author Chelle Bliss. Men of Inked: Heatwave features steamy romance, hot alphas, and strong heroines<br /><br /> <b>**City & Suzy's Daughter**</b></i></div>

<strong><em>The California sunshine’s not quite so bright for three sisters<Br><Br>who get dumped in the same week…</em></strong><Br><Br>Finola, a popular LA morning-show host, is famously upbeat until she’s blindsided on live TV by the news that her husband is sleeping with a young pop sensation who has set their affair to music. While avoiding the tabloids and pretending she’s <em>just fine,</em> she’s crumbling inside, desperate for him to come to his senses and for life to go back to normal.<Br><Br>Zennie’s breakup is no big loss. Although the world insists she pair up, she’d rather be surfing. So agreeing to be the surrogate for her best friend is a no-brainer—after all, she has an available womb and no other attachments to worry about. Except…when everyone else, including her big sister, thinks she’s making a huge mistake, being pregnant is a lot lonelier—and more complicated—than she imagined.<Br><Br>Never the tallest, thinnest or prettiest sister, Ali is used to being overlooked, but when her fiancé sends his disapproving brother to call off the wedding, it’s a new low. And yet Daniel continues to turn up “for support,” making Ali wonder if maybe—for once—someone sees her in a way no one ever has.<Br><Br>But side by side by side, these sisters will start over and rebuild their lives with all the affection, charm and laugh-out-loud humor that is classic Susan Mallery.
