All Ray wants is to finish her job and say adios to the world’s most high-maintenance client. But after being mistaken for Monica’s girlfriend, how can Ray walk away when going along with the charade would grant an old lady her dying wish? It’s not like Ray intended to be so charming that Monica’s grandmother would rewrite her will.

Now the unlikely couple stands to inherit a vineyard in rural New England and a heap of cash large enough to change both their lives. The only hitch? They have to get hitched.

Love Stories 6-10 contains five of Ellie Spark’s most loved novellas. While characters do reappear in stories, these love stories can be read standalone and in any order. One fan said:

“This collection of novellas is a perfect antidote for when the real world gets a little too much to bear. Each of the books contain delightful characters, some good humor and believable moments of conflict that always resolve into a nice HEA ending.

The author’s writing style is fun, quick, breezy…It’s like these are great summertime books. And I also think that these stories are great for anyone who just simply likes good love stories, no matter who the lovers are.”

Everything the Great War took, a group of extraordinary witches will remake for themselves.

The First World War is over, the old world shattered and overturned. But one didn’t need to be anywhere near the fighting to have everything stripped away. Families, homes, identities lost, the witches of EVE were left at war’s end with only two things: their magical gifts and each other.

From the ashes of Allied victory and the Russian revolution, this group of survivors will forge for themselves something altogether new in a time when women aren’t even allowed to vote, let alone openly practice magic in public. Or love one another.

But not all threats to their budding coven come from without.

Secrets, lies and lingering trauma they’ve suffered could tear them apart as easily as the war tried to do. They will have to overcome and embrace all that they are to ensure the peace is a lasting one, and that no one will ever again suffer as they did.

Contains discussions of suicide/rape survival, but no depictions.

A new queen. An ancient feud. A succession bought in blood.

The world changed in the blink of an eye. Once an estranged cousin to the king, Aria is now heir apparent to the South. With her nation still in the midst of an unjust war, torn by Byzantine politics and rampant treachery, the inheritance seems a curse. Not least of all because peacemaking between the distant branches of the royal family means marriage: her marriage.

Among the sycophants and assassins, politicians and spies, Aria knows who to trust: no one. She doesn’t trust her intended, Augustus. She doesn’t trust his smart talking half-sister, Terese. But when the young woman saves her life, the queen’s guard begins to slip.

Which is a problem. Because if she crosses the rest of the royal family, it won’t just be a war with the North she’ll have to contend with; it’ll be civil war.

Remy Devereux is an ace homicide detective with the SFPD. At work, she’s embroiled in a months-long murder investigation that has yet to show any signs of breaking. At home, she’s on the skids with her soon-to-be ex-girlfriend, while nightmares of the gruesome murder scene keep her up at night.

On the other side of the country, Giana Falco has just made the biggest change in her life. She’s ended her engagement and now she’s moving to the west coast to take a job as a forensic scientist in a town where she knows practically no one. It’s either the bravest or the stupidest thing she’s ever done.

Sparks begin to fly the moment Remy and Giana meet. Remy has never seen a woman more intelligent or more beautiful than her new colleague, but she knows that allowing herself to fall for a straight woman would be a uniquely masochistic kind of folly. For her part, Giana is intrigued by the tall and reticent detective. She sees no reason why the two of them shouldn’t become the best of friends.

The stakes couldn’t be higher as the two women put their heads together to work the case, drawing ever closer to finding the killer—and ever closer to finding each other. Try as they might to ignore it, the attraction they feel becomes something neither one of them can deny.
