A Thousand Miles by Bridget Morrissey 
(June 21st)

After a decade of silence, Dee and Ben reunite for a road trip they once promised to take. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.

Emily Henry, author of Book Lovers

For the Love of the Bard by Jessica Martin (June 28th)

To go for it or not to go for it? That is the question when two former high school flames return to their Shakespeare-obsessed hometown for a summer of theater and unexpected romance, in a laugh-out-loud rom-com from debut author Jessica Martin. FOR THE LOVE OF THE BARD is the perfect read for anyone who grew up on “Ten Things I Hate About You,” graduated to Jen DeLuca’s Well Met, wish they lived in Stars Hollow, and never forgo the opportunity to employ a good Shakespearian insult. 

Bayou Sweetheart by Lexi Blake (July 26th)

Sparks fly in Louisiana's Butterfly Bayou when a Hollywood starlet falls for a local deputy in a small-town contemporary romance from bestselling author, Lexi Blake. With her trademark clever humor, heartwarming romance, and loveable characters, Lexi has successfully pivoted from romantic suspense to small-town romance, perfect for readers of Jill Shalvis, Susan Mallery, and RaeAnne Thayne.

Mademoiselle Revolution by Zoe Sivak (August 2nd)

Twentysomething debut author Zoe Sivak shares history through the lens of a Black woman in her stunning novel about a biracial and bisexual Haitian woman who finds herself caught up in the French Revolution. 

The Magic of Lemon Drop Pie by Rachel Linden (August 2nd)

This summer, from the bestselling author of The Enlightenment of Bees, comes a beautifully delivered, life-affirming novel that explores a heartbroken pie maker’s second chance at the life of her dreams. THE MAGIC OF LEMON DROP PIE has the recipe of a perfect beach read; it is poignant, funny, and altogether absorbing. Linden’s latest tale takes readers on a surprising voyage with its protagonist, Lolly Blanchard, as she uses the power of a few magical lemon drops to find happiness and live the life she didn’t choose.

Luck and Last Resorts by Sarah Grunder Ruiz (August 9th)

Former flames Nina and Ollie find themselves trapped together as part of the superyacht, Serendipity’s, crew. They now have a second chance at love, but there are some rough seas ahead in a new contemporary romance from the acclaimed author of Love, Lists, and Fancy Ships. Readers will love the tropes featured in LUCK AND LAST RESORTS  like workplace romance and second-chance romance, a perfect fit for readers of Emily Henry and Kristan Higgins, and fans of Bravo's “Below Deck.”
