ONLY EVER YOU
by Natasha West

Available in Kindle Unlimited
Romantic Comedy

No one expects to be widowed at thirty-eight. But that’s exactly what happens to Jessie Downes after her wife dies in a tragic accident. Jessie is left devastated and angry and after she lashes out in grief, she finds herself in court-ordered group therapy. For self-contained Jessie, it’s a fresh nightmare. She’d rather be picking litter on the side of a highway than forced to attend a group where people talk about their problems.

But little by little she finds herself drawn into the workings of the group and its assortment of eccentric members. Specifically, Annie Perkins, a sweet yet closeted woman who is trying to work through her pathological fear of making decisions.

Jessie and Annie are surprised to find a connection. But is it more than friendship? And if it is, does Jessie have the strength to allow someone in after losing the only woman she ever expected to love? Or should she just commit to being alone?

Only Ever You is a romantic comedy heaped with dark humour, from the author of The Plus One and By Any Other Name.

The fate of an empire lies in the hands of one untested princess.

Princess Natasia is the eldest child of the Emperor Andreth, ruler of the Four Realms. If she were a boy, she’d be the unquestioned heir to the throne. But as a girl, her main duty in life is to marry someone her father can shape into his successor.

Everything changes when an unknown would-be assassin nearly takes Tasia’s life. Someone wants to destabilize the Empire — but who? Was the assassin aligned with the power-hungry Western lords, who have always rebelled against the Emperor? Was he hired by the barbarians in the East, who are fighting against the Empire’s subjugation? Or was he a member of the mysterious Cult of Culo?

Unsure of whom he can trust, the Emperor realizes that his daughter might be his best option for an heir. There hasn’t been a female heir to the throne in living memory, but as palace intrigue becomes increasingly dangerous, the reckless, rebellious, and stubborn princess suddenly has to face the responsibility of learning to lead.

Will she rise to the occasion? Or will the Empire fall at the hands of one of its many enemies?
