Her family is happy to announce that she will bring her American boyfriend to her sister's wedding. Everyone is invited to come and witness the most magical event of the year.

Which left me with a surly and extra large dilemma in my hands. Was it worth the suffering to bring my colleague and bane of my existence as my fake boyfriend to my sister's wedding? Or was I better off coming clean and facing the consequences of my panic induced lie? Like my abuela would say, que dios nos pille confesados.The Spanish Love Deception is an enemies-to-lovers, fake-dating.

Book Description
'Your world is about to be rocked.' Elena Armas, author of The Spanish Love Deception 'Hopelessly, brilliantly, wonderfully romantic. I loved it even more than The Love Hypothesis, and I didn't think that was possible' Cressida McLaughlin From the New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis comes a new STEMinist rom-com in which a scientist is forced to work on a project with her nemesis - with explosive results. Bee Königswasser lives by a simple code: What would Marie Curie do? If NASA offered her the lead on a neuroengineering project - a literal dream come true - Marie would accept without hesitation. Duh. But the mother of modern physics never had to co-lead with Levi Ward. Sure, Levi is attractive in a tall, dark, and piercing-eyes kind of way. But Levi made his feelings toward Bee very clear in grad school - archenemies work best employed in their own galaxies far, far away. But when her equipment starts to go missing and the staff ignore her, Bee could swear she sees Levi softening into an ally, backing her plays, seconding her ideas... devouring her with those eyes. The possibilities have all her neurons firing. But when it comes time to actually make a move and put her heart on the line, there's only one question that matters: What will Bee Königswasser do? 'Ali Hazelwood proves that science is sexy as hell, and that love can 'STEM' from the most unlikely places. She's my newest must-buy author.' Jodi Picoult 'I cannot get enough of her brand of brainy romance! Writing with an emotionally brilliant and witty pen, Hazelwood is an absolute romance powerhouse.' Christina Lauren, author of The Unhoneymooners 'Gloriously nerdy and sexy, with on-point commentary about women in STEM.' Helen Hoang, author of The Heart Principle What the five star reviews are saying about The Love Hypothesis: 'Did I read this in 24 hours? Yes.' 'Funny. Snarky. Intelligent. Real.' 'If you're even slightly thinking about getting this book to read, just go a head and do it' 'Adam is just *swoon*' 'Ali Hazelwood has made herself an auto-buy author' 'It was just... perfect.' 'A heroine you will instantly fall in love with'

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER A Most Anticipated Book of 2022 by Cosmopolitan, Goodreads, PopSugar, and more! From the author of the Goodreads Choice Award winner The Spanish Love Deception, the eagerly anticipated follow-up featuring Rosie Graham and Lucas Martín, who are forced to share a New York apartment. Rosie Graham has a problem. A few, actually. She just quit her well paid job to focus on her secret career as a romance writer. She hasn’t told her family and now has terrible writer’s block. Then, the ceiling of her New York apartment literally crumbles on her. Luckily she has her best friend Lina’s spare key while she’s out of town. But Rosie doesn’t know that Lina has already lent her apartment to her cousin Lucas, who Rosie has been stalking—for lack of a better word—on Instagram for the last few months. Lucas seems intent on coming to her rescue like a Spanish knight in shining armor. Only this one strolls around the place in a towel, has a distracting grin, and an irresistible accent. Oh, and he cooks. Lucas offers to let Rosie stay with him, at least until she can find some affordable temporary housing. And then he proposes an outrageous experiment to bring back her literary muse and meet her deadline: He’ll take her on a series of experimental dates meant to jump-start her romantic inspiration. Rosie has nothing to lose. Her silly, online crush is totally under control—but Lucas’s time in New York has an expiration date, and six weeks may not be enough, for either her or her deadline.

Lucy Clark has just bought a house with her worst enemy. From the moment Lucy - Miss 'my self-worth comes from setting myself impossible standards of perfection' - meets Zack - Mr 'I'm your infuriatingly laidback yet impossibly ripped new yoga teacher' - it's hate at first sight. So when Zack puts in a competing offer to buy her childhood home, there's no way she's backing down. After losing her business and her best friend in one great margarita-themed disaster, there's no way she's losing her beloved house. Except there's one tiny problem - she can't actually afford it. When Zack suggests they buy the house together, inspiration strikes. Lucy will wear him down, with a never-ending supply of lists and rules, until he's begging for escape. That's until Zack arrives, with his non-existent sleepwear and a ridiculously sincere appreciation for the simple things. Suddenly, Lucy finds herself re-evaluating her own warped priorities. Will living with the enemy end up with Lucy losing her sanity? Or is it true what they say - that there's a thin line between love and hate?

Book Description
The River is the Mississippi, enigmatic and treacherous. The Man is the American who conquered the West--the prototype of the restless, innocent and greedy nineteenth century dreamers who built the railroads and steamboats, who opened the Santa Fe Trail and despoiled the forests, who fought the Indians and each other. Here is the American Myth brought to life though men and women who matched the robust, ruthless age in which they lived. Caleb McSwasey dreamed of creating an empire in the wilderness. He ruled men but could not rule the woman of his choice. By guile and ruthlessness, Jim Buckmaster, the river hog carved a vast fortune out of virgin timber. He owned the river but not his conscience. Rolfe Torkelsen, heir to the river's treasure, finally balked at the price he would have to pay. A new era had begun. But the dark magic of one woman (there are many in this book) proved more powerful than any river hog or lumber baron. Esperanza von Zumwalt, in whom the blood of three races was fused in crucible, dominated two strong men, one who loved her and one who hated her. These are a few of the tall Americans in Thomas W. Duncan's prodigious novel of adventure and commerce, of love, war, peace and the making of a nation. Sweeping from Penobscot to Santa Fe, from the Wisconsin woods to Shiloh, Big River, Big Man is a novel with its roots in historical destiny. To read it is to capture the spirit and substance of an age -- Book jacket.
