Always seen and treated like the baby of the overprotective Romankov/Sullivan clan, Katerina may have been the youngest child, and only girl, of Alexei and Vivienne but she was all woman. Kat worked tirelessly to establish her own identity to not only become a world-renowned jewelry designer but carved her own sense of independence, despite the closeness she shared with her family. To the outside, Kat had it all. The only thing missing was…love.

She found it in Holton Brammer.

The Swede’s goal was to live a simple, drama-free life and share it with the woman of his dreams whom he’d coveted since…well, the particulars were best kept to himself. There were a few obstacles that had prevented Holt from making that dream a reality. They came in the form of her domineering father and her brothers - his three best friends since childhood. 

Just when he’s finally able to overcome those hurdles, Holt’s family obligations and unknown forces turn his world inside out, threatening the safety and security of not only his peaceful life, but that of his most prized possession.

Katerina Romankov.

Now only war exists and it’s one The Woodsman is determined to win…with a little help from some friends.

This Time By Azaaa Davis

Synopsis:

Legendary demon hunter Nadira Holden paid the ultimate price to end the war between demons and hunters.

Resurrected in present-day New York, many years have passed, everyone moved on without her, and the demons she once battled have made peace with humans. Nadira no longer has a purpose here. Dying again might be her ticket back to that “next life” she experienced.

Except humans are disappearing, and Nadira’s father is one of the missing. Feeling a strong obligation to find him before sorting out her own fate, she begins investigating.

She won't rest in peace unless she can prove the demons are behind the disappearances. But Nadira is running out of time. The darkness within her is causing her to lose her humanity while the rest of mankind is on the verge of enslavement to the demons they now worship.

Excerpt

Ashton

Amateurs rarely follow the rules. It’s the number-one reason they always get stuck. Call it a playbook, if you will—the very necessary guidelines to finding women who normally wouldn’t give you the time of day, yet discover themselves inexplicably drawn to you.

I keep mine fairly simple, and never, ever deviate. There are traps and pitfalls in diverting from the rules. I’m not some Yoda. Just extremely dedicated to maintaining a respectable bachelor status.

1.  Never pick the prettiest women. They’re usually merely a pretty face, have no real power, and are high-maintenance or looking for more than what one has to give. No, the pretty girls will ruin your chances at playing the field. The less attractive friends always want attention and will be far more appreciative in the long run.

2.  Don’t think of her as a one-night stand. Think of her as a new friend you can call at 3 a.m. asking to come round her place.

3.  No discussing family history.

4.  No deep conversations that linger into the wee hours. Keep things light. Airy. Like fresh laundry on a clothesline in the spring.

5.  Never treat women poorly. Be distant instead. Not too distant, though. It’s a fine line after all.

6.  Whatever you do, don’t hang out until the next morning. It gives the wrong impression. No need to contradict the aloof vibe you’ve perfected.

7.  No actual dates on Friday or Saturday, as these are universally known as couples’ nights.

8.  No consecutive days of seeing each other, either.

9.  No sharing of clothing items.

10.  No taking personal items to each other’s homes.

Those are the rules for the modern-day playboy. There are probably more than that, but these are enough to get you started. Being a player is a highly unpopular position to be in, by the way. What with all the tossers in the world acting aggressively toward women and Glide-ing until their fingers won’t swipe anymore. None of that was my game.

Queenie By Candice Carty-Williams

This book is on my TBR list for March!!!! 






NAMED ONE OF THE MOST ANTICIPATED BOOKS OF 2019 BY WOMAN’S DAYNEWSDAYPUBLISHERS WEEKLYBUSTLE, AND BOOK RIOT!

“[B]rilliant, timely, funny, heartbreaking.” —Jojo Moyes, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Me Before You

Bridget Jones’s Diary meets Americanah in this disarmingly honest, boldly political, and truly inclusive novel that will speak to anyone who has gone looking for love and found something very different in its place.

Queenie Jenkins is a 25-year-old Jamaican British woman living in London, straddling two cultures and slotting neatly into neither. She works at a national newspaper, where she’s constantly forced to compare herself to her white middle class peers. After a messy break up from her long-term white boyfriend, Queenie seeks comfort in all the wrong places…including several hazardous men who do a good job of occupying brain space and a bad job of affirming self-worth.

As Queenie careens from one questionable decision to another, she finds herself wondering, “What are you doing? Why are you doing it? Who do you want to be?”—all of the questions today’s woman must face in a world trying to answer them for her.

With “fresh and honest” (Jojo Moyes) prose, Queenie is a remarkably relatable exploration of what it means to be a modern woman searching for meaning in today’s world.


Editorial Reviews

Review

“Brilliant, timely, funny, heartbreaking.” –Jojo Moyes, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Me Before You

“My favorite novel this year. Queenie is the sort of novel you just can’t stop talking about and want everyone you know to read. Snort your tea out funny one moment and utterly heart breaking the next, (and with the best cast of characters you’ll read all year), I absolutely loved it. I can’t wait to read whatever Candice writes next. If there is anything right in the world, Candice Carty-Williams is going to be a literary superstar.” –AJ Pearce, author of Dear Mrs. Bird 

"So raw and well-written and painfully relatable. It's also clever and funny and has the most glorious cover." –Ruth Ware, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in Cabin 10 

"They say Queenie is Black Bridget Jones meets Americanah. But she stands in her own right—nothing can and will compare. I can't articulate how completely and utterly blown away I am." –Black Girls Book Club

"Meet Queenie Jenkins, a 25-year-old Jamaican British woman who works for a London newspaper, is struggling to fit in, is dealing with a breakup, and is making all kinds of questionable decisions. In other words, she's highly relatable. A must read for '19." Woman's Day

"You’ll read Queenie, a novel about a young Jamaican British woman trying to find her place in London, in one day. It’s that good." Hello Giggles

"A black Bridget Jones, perfectly of the moment." Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“[A] smart, fearless debut… This is an essential depiction of life as a black woman in the modern world, told in a way that makes Queenie dynamic and memorable.” Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Carty-Williams creates an utterly knowable character in Queenie, who's as dimensional and relatable as they come as she tries to balance her own desires with what everyone else seems to want for her... This smart, funny, and tender debut embraces a modern woman's messiness." Booklist (starred review)

“Adorable, funny, heartbreaking. People are going to love it.” –Nina Stibbe, author of Love, Nina
