The Spanish Love Deception by Elena Armas

Catalina Martín desperately needs a date to her sister’s wedding. Especially when her little white lie about her American boyfriend has spiralled out of control. Now everyone she knows – including her ex-boyfriend and his fiancée – will be there.
She only has four weeks to find someone willing to cross the Atlantic for her and aid in her deception. NYC to Spain is no short flight and her family won’t be easy to fool. . . But even then, when Aaron Blackford – the 6’4″, blue-eyed pain in the arse – offers to step in, she’s not tempted even for a second. Never has there been a more aggravating, blood-boiling and insufferable man.
But Catalina is desperate and as the wedding gets closer the more desirable an option Aaron Blackford becomes. . .
Tall Bones by Anna Bailey
When Emma leaves her friend Abi at a party in the woods, she believes that their lives are just beginning. Many things will happen that night, but Emma will never see her friend again.
What happens next in Whistling Ridge is so much more than the story of a missing girl.
It’s a story of secrets and shame, regrets and rage, love and lies. For Abi’s disappearance cracks open the façade of the small town, peeling away the layers of its secret past. Even within Abi’s own family there are questions to be asked – of Noah, the older brother whom Abi betrayed, of Jude, the shining younger sibling who hides his battle scars, of Dolly, her mother and Samuel, her father – both in thrall to the fiery preacher who holds the entire town in his grasp. Then there is Rat, the outsider, whose presence both unsettles and excites those around him.

Then bad news from home forces Lucia to re-evaluate what she wants from life. Is this her chance to carry on the family tradition and finally follow her dreams?

The Paris Wife by Meghan Masterson
Paris, 1856. My head spins with hunger as the countess steers me towards the kitchen, her scarlet gown glimmering in the light of a hundred long candles. The clang of pots and scent of sage overwhelm my senses and my baby flutters inside me. But as I reach for the dish of currants, my eyes narrow. About half of them are larger and blacker than the rest. My blood feels slow and thick in my veins. Those are deadly nightshade berries. I would swear it.
Newly married to Niccolo, a wealthy envoy to the French emperor, skilled herbalist Livia Valenti feels lost and alone. Her husband is a distant stranger, and their echoing Paris mansion is too far from her fragrant garden in Italy.
But then Niccolo fills the shelves with her favourite books and prepares an apothecary room full of rows of shining glass jars. And a beautiful romance begins to blossom. With masked balls, luxurious dinner parties and a new life growing inside her, Livia believes her dreams of love and happiness may finally come true. Until an assassination attempt is made on Napoleon III. And Niccolo is arrested for treason…
As Niccolo awaits execution in prison, Livia turns to Napoleon’s glamorous mistress Elisabetta. With her friend’s influence and connections and Livia’s knowledge of poisons, she thinks she can discover who is trying to kill the emperor. But then tragedy strikes, and dark secrets in Livia’s own past come back to haunt her. They are all in terrible danger, and it will take all of Livia’s courage to save her husband and their baby…
These choices are just the books that I’d be tempted by rather than just any books that are on offer.
