Check out what’s new this week:
Jane Austen fan? Don’t miss Persuasion: The Wild and Wanton Edition by Micah Persell, in which a very young Frederick Wentworth and Anne Elliot are broken-hearted when their hasty engagement is dissolved due to Frederick’s lack of prestige and lack of money. Eight years later, they are still healing when they are thrust into the same social circle once more—however, in a brilliant turn, now Frederick is Captain Wentworth, a prosperous naval officer, and the Elliot family finds themselves on the brink of financial ruin. In this version of the classic, discover the steamy untold portions of Austen’s story that have been lying dormant in the subtext.
Her Ghost Wears Kilts by Kathleen Shaputis flips the ghost story table with a ghostly twenty-seven-year-old hunk, Lord Kai, and fifty-something bachelorette Baillie. Her gay best friend Gillian Nation and his girls dash to Scotland to Baillie’s rescue when the combination of alcohol, villainous banker, DNA, and good old-fashioned jealousy throw Baillie into the fight of her life. Will she choose to reclaim her normal Northwest existence or grab onto an unorthodox love that makes life magical and breath-taking?
In the romantic suspense In the Shadow of Evil by Nancy C. Weeks, Jared McNeil has spent ten years with Maryland’s Special Crime Unit and very little rattles him. When the haunted teenager he once tried to protect walks into his precinct now a beautiful woman, he wants nothing more than to wrap her in his arms and never let her go. But he soon realizes she is there only to settle her debts before she goes after his nemesis, Mendoza. What Jared and Jennie don’t understand is there are forces at play greater than the evil shadowing them, but time is running out.
