A Portrait of Emily Price

Emily Price—fix-it girl extraordinaire and would-be artist—works to restore the home and dreams of one family, while striving to keep the pieces of her life in perfect order and secure her own happy ending—a gallery show of her own. There is no time for distractions, especially not the ultimate distraction of falling in love. But Chef Benito Vassallo, a charming visitor from Italy, soon proves hard to resist. Emily astonishes everyone when she accepts Ben’s marriage proposal and follows him home. Upon landing in Rome, she is enchanted with Italy. But instead of allowing the land, culture and people to transform her, Emily imposes her will upon everyone and everything around her, alienating Ben’s tightly knit family. Once Emily learns to lay down her guard, her life and art soon begin to blossom, and Italy’s ‘La Dolce Vita’ beauty and rhythm take hold of her spirit.

Previously praised by bestselling authors Eloisa James and Debbie Macomber and recognized as a bright and charming voice in Contemporary Romance by readers, librarians, and critics alike, Katherine Reay’s latest novel promises to be both a winsome love letter to books and a delightful jaunt through the gorgeous hills of Tuscany. With clever nods to Jane Austen’s classic, Emma, and Reay’s own signature wit, this delightful novel serves as a winsome love letter to books.

Wrong For Me

After eight years in prison, Levi Rush is finally out and back on the streets to claim the future he was owed. A future that includes the one woman he’s wanted for years—his former best friend Rachel. She’s the reason he went inside and if getting her to do what he wants means buying the building that houses her tattoo studio and using it as leverage, then that’s what he’ll do. Because if there’s one thing he’s learned inside it’s that if you want to win, you have to play dirty.

Set in the gritty, desolate urban sprawl of Detroit, Wrong For Me is the second book in Jackie Ashenden’s new Motor City Royals series about a group of brooding, gear-head, quick to action heroes seeking to reconcile their uncertain futures with their criminal pasts. Powerful, possessive, strong, and determined, the men of Motor City Royals are ripe for redemption.

First Jackson Cooper—Cysnet’s rich, gorgeous, genius CEO—assigns China to a dangerous and highly classified project for a government defense contractor. Her sixteen-year-old runaway niece suddenly arrives in town, begging to move in with China. And then there’s her sexy but oddly unsettling new neighbor, Clark…

Quickly the Cysnet assignment becomes disconcerting—and then downright scary—as key staffers turn up dead. China suspects she’s being followed and isn’t sure whom she can trust. For the first time ever, she’ll have to follow her instincts, rather than logic, if she’s going to survive.

Not Quite Perfect

New York Times bestselling author Catherine Bybee delivers the fifth heartwarming, flirty novel in the wildly popular Not Quite series.

The Illusionist’s Apprentice

Harry Houdini’s one-time apprentice holds fantastic secrets about the greatest illusionist in the world. But someone wants to claim them…or silence her before she can reveal them on her own. Boston, 1926. Jenny “Wren” Lockhart is a bold eccentric—even for a female vaudevillian. As notorious for her inherited wealth and gentleman’s dress as she is for her unsavory upbringing in the back halls of a vaudeville theater, Wren lives in a world that challenges all manner of conventions. In the months following Houdini’s death, Wren is drawn into a web of mystery surrounding a spiritualist by the name of Horace Stapleton, a man defamed by Houdini’s ardent debunking of fraudulent mystics in the years leading up to his death. But in a public illusion that goes terribly wrong, one man is dead and another stands charged with his murder. Though he’s known as one of her teacher’s greatest critics, Wren must decide to become the one thing she never wanted to be: Stapleton’s defender. Layered with mystery, illusion, and the artistry of the Jazz Age’s bygone vaudeville era, The Illusionist’s Apprentice is a journey through love and loss.
