The Turning Point

From: £7.99

Over one short weekend, when Canadian musician Scott Emerson and British author Frankie Shaw meet by chance, a profound connection is made.

Their homes are thousands of miles apart: Frankie and her children live by the coast of North Norfolk while Scott’s roots lie deep in the mountains of British Columbia. It’s a miracle they even meet. Yet, against all advice, they decide to see where this might go.

Over oceans and time zones, they make sacrifices and take risks, discovering along the way the truth about love and family. For the first time in a long while, life seems good.

But fate has a tragic twist in store, one that could destroy all that was believed in and hoped for. Sometimes we must seize happiness where we find it – and trust that love will always find a way.

The Way Back Home

£7.99

Born and brought up at Windward, an artists’ commune in Derbyshire, Oriana Taylor had freedom at her fingertips in a home full of extraordinary people.

The Bedwell brothers, Malachy and Jed, shared their childhood and adolescence with her. In the rambling old house and tangled grounds, their dreams and desires could take wing unchecked.

But too much freedom can be a dangerous thing. And something happened the summer they were fifteen.

The Way Back Home is their story.

Rumours

£7.99

Everybody’s talking – but what’s really going on?

Rumour has it that Stella Hutton landed her new job thanks to family connections. She’s guarded about her past and private about her new life.

Over in Long Dansbury, there’s always a rumour circulating about Xander – but the eligible bachelor shrugs off village gossip.

Then a rumour starts that Longbridge Hall is up for sale. Home to the eccentric Fortescues, it has dominated Long Dansbury lives for centuries.

Stella is summoned to sell the estate. But Xander grew up there. His secrets and memories are not for sale. He’ll do anything to stand in Stella’s way. Anything but fall in love.

Chances

From: £7.99

Vita’s gift shop would do better if she ran it as a business, not as somewhere to daydream. But she’s not one to tell herself off–she leaves that to Tim, her ex, who still co-owns the shop. He cheated on Vita and broke her heart. Could she ever give him another chance?

Oliver, an experienced and successful tree surgeon, runs his home as calmly as his business. However, his heart is still with the mother of his child, even though it’s been three years now. He won’t take a chance on love again.

Then a pear tree brings Oliver to Vita, and as spring turns into summer they are given choices and chances. Will they grab them or walk away?

Secrets

From: £6.99

We all have our secrets. It’s just some are bigger than others…

Joe has a beautiful house, a great job, no commitments – and he likes it like that. All he needs is a quiet house-sitter for his rambling old place by the sea. When Tess turns up on his doorstep, he’s not sure she’s right for the job. Where has she come from in such a hurry? Her past is a blank and she’s something of an enigma.

But there’s something about her – even though sparks fly every time they meet. And it looks as though she’s here to stay…

Pillow Talk

From: £7.00

The sleepwalker.
By day, Petra Flint is a talented jeweller working in a lively London studio. By night, she sleepwalks. She has 40 carats of the world’s rarest gemstone under her mattress but it’s the skeletons in her closet that make it difficult for her to rest.

The insomniac.
At one time a promising songwriter, Arlo Savidge now teaches music at a boys’ boarding school in North Yorkshire. He assumes he’s happy with his isolated lifestyle. But, like Petra, ghosts from his past disturb his sleep.

Putting the past to bed.
Petra and Arlo loved each other from afar during their schooldays. Now, seventeen years later, in a tiny sweetshop one rainy day, they stand before each other once more. Could this be their second chance?

Home Truths

£7.99

Should happy families be such hard work?

When their uncle Django’s 75th birthday is interrupted by a mysterious visitor with a shocking revelation, sisters Fen, Pip and Cat find that the man who was like a father to them is now a stranger.

Their mother ran off with a cowboy from Denver when they were young leaving the three sisters to be raised by their devoted, eccentric uncle Django. No matter what problems they’ve encountered – relationships, work, starting families, bringing up babies and step-kids – they’ve always had each other to depend on. Until now.

Family matters…doesn’t it?

Love Rules

£7.99

Is love ever enough?

Thea – sensible and cautious – has always believed in old-fashioned romance. Her best friend Alice is more of a ‘fun first, think later’ kind of girl. But just recently they’ve both been behaving out of character.

When Thea Luckmore falls head over heels for a man she meets on Primrose Hill and Alice Heggarty marries her best friend Mark, both women are blissfully happy – for a while. But it’s not long before Alice admits to herself she likes the thrill of the chase more than the easy pace of married life. And then Thea makes a shocking discovery – one which forces her to rewrite her rules for everlasting love …

Pip

£7.99

Pip McCabe, 30, likes to say she doesn’t need a man and she doesn’t need money. However, her friends and her sisters Cat and Fen (the heroines of North’s previous two bestsellers) think she would probably benefit from a little more of each. This might prove difficult. Stripy tights, starched pigtails, a bright red nose and an ability to juggle whilst doing the splits only just about pay the bills and seldom lead to romance or romps. Pip, though, takes her clowning very seriously, whether at spoilt kids’ partiesor on the wards of children’s hospitals. She simply doesn’t have time for a man, she claims. And her bank balance hovers just above the red, so that’s OK.

At 34, Zac Holmes has a successful, high-powered career, a fabulous flat and an adored 6-year-old son from a previous relationship. Popular, charming and affluent, Zac feels that no-strings flings suit his lifestyle as much as the pleasing bonuses he earns at work.

When Zac and Pip first meet, it is far from love or lust at first sight. What can a clown and an accountant possibly have in common? Against a lively backdrop of parties and parks, hospitals and hotels, they attempt to find out…

Fen

£7.99

Two very different men, one very difficult decision.

You wait forever for a real man…

Then two turn up at once.

Fen McCabe has only ever been in love once. So what if he’s a long dead nineteenth century artist? She’s an art historian. She calls it job satisfaction; her friends and family call it insanity.

But then her path crosses not just with handsome publisher Matt Holden, but also with brooding landscape gardener James Caulfield – twenty years her senior. Though she fights it, Fen finds herself falling for both of them in a haze of sex, art and severe indecision…

Does she really have to choose?

Cat

From: £6.99

She’s in for the ride of her life.

Her career is stuck in a rut.

Her love life has been a tangle.

But fortune favours the brave…

When journalist Cat McCabe lands a job reporting on the Tour de France she’s confident it might give her stuttering career the boost it needs and provide a welcome distraction from a messy break-up. Or so she hopes.

She quickly realizes Le Tour is not just all about the bikes. Large bulges, huge egos, lashings of Lycra and plenty of sexy shenanigans play their part and, soon enough, her own life starts to mirror the high peaks and perilous lows of the race as she battles for more than just a scoop.

Whatever happens, it’s going to be the ride of her life.
With sex, drugs, large bulges and larger egos, the soap opera that is the Tour de France unfolds, with Cat’s life frequently mirroring the peaks and perils of the race.

Polly

From: £6.99

He’s out of sight, she’s out of her mind.

Polly Fenton is about to embark on a year-long teachers’ exchange to America. Swapping cottage pie for corn dogs is one thing, but trading lives with her American counterpart, Jen, is quite another.

The minute Polly’s feet touch down Stateside, she’s swept off them altogether. When she meets Chip Jonson, the school athletic trainer, all thoughts of home suddenly disappear.

Spanning three terms and two countries, this is a sparky and sassy story of New England and Old England, fidelity and flirtation, receiving one’s comeuppance – and making amends.
