A Lady Awakened has a pretty interesting premise. Martha is newly widowed and about to be thrown out of her house. She and her late husband had no children, particularly no heir, so his estranged brother shall inherit. Well, Martha isn’t about to let that happen, especially when she learns that the brother is a rapist. She’s been given a month to make sure that she’s not pregnant before moving out. She’s not, but she comes up with a plan to quickly conceive. Scandalous, but ultimately super boring and at one point 100% infuriating.
A Christmas Gone Perfectly Wrong uses my two most favorite tropes, fake relationship turned real and stranded together, and adds a sprinkle of holiday cheer. Andrew is on his way to buy his sister a hunting falcon when he sees a woman walking in the middle of the road in the snow. It wouldn’t be proper for him to give her a ride, but he advises her to stay to the side. Then upon his arrival to the baron’s home, he discovers that that woman is the baron’s daughter! He can’t keep his eyes off of her, but again, he knows it’s improper. If only he knew the trouble he was in store for during this Christmas.
Sweet Filthy Boy is a fake relationship turned real with an accidentally married twist! Mia and her friends head to Las Vegas after graduation, have a few too many drinks, and they all wake up married to another group of friends! Mia’s friends immediately get annulments, but Mia had written herself a letter and made her husband promise not the annul until the Fall. Well, Mia isn’t quite sure why she would do that, but she ultimately decides to trust herself. That means taking off to Paris, where Ansel lives, for the summer. The plan is to come back for school and unmarried, but plans change.

A Summer to Remember was another sweet prequel in this series! This time, we’re following Lauren, the jilted bride from One Night For Love. Lauren has decided that she wants to be free from her family’s and society’s expectations. She doesn’t want to marry; she just wants to live her life, alone, her way. Then she meets Kit, an infamous rake. He’s been disowned by his family, but following his brother’s death he’s now the heir and being invited back. He needs a respectable bride, or the face of one, to fully rewin his family’s approval and he has his sights set on Lauren.
Fairy Tales–previously published as Sagolikt–is a super adorable coloring book depicting characters and imagery from Swedish fairy tales. While I’m not familiar with Swedish stories, I still recognized several of the pages. Even without knowing what story I was looking at, every page is enchanting and gorgeous.
