Hey there, everyone! It’s links time! How are we in September already? Some personal news, I’ve taken a part-time bookselling position at a local indie and I’m loving it. It’s all part of my plan to have romance take over the world. However, the staff discount is very dangerous so far. … Looking for some queer paranormal romance recommendations? Author Hailey Turner has you covered and surprisingly, all of these books are new to me! … Love in Panels is running a charity auction to raise money for RAICES. What a great cause! There are some awesome items up for bidding: ad space for authors, signed books, and even a foodie crawl in NYC. … Sarah: Hello, shoe folks. I’m sorry to say, if you like Rothy’s (and I do indeed) they’ve announced a new style. The Chelsea is a sneaker in a bootie style, and I’m so very tempted to get myself a pair. I have three pair of Rothy’s, all point-style flats in purple, red, and a blue print. I wear them constantly at conferences, as the knit (which is made of recycle water bottles) stretches to accommodate that which always happens to my feet after four days…

It’s Getting Scot in Here It’s Getting Scot in Here by Suzanne Enoch is $2.99 at Amazon! I’m not sure if this is a leftover deal about to expire or will be price-matched later. This is the first book in the Wild Wicked Highlanders series. It has a 4-star rating on Goodreads. HAPPILY-EVER-AFTER London socialite Amelia-Rose Baxter is nobody’s fool. Her parents may want her to catch a title, but she will never change who she is for the promise of marriage. Her husband will be a man who can appreciate her sharp mind as well as her body. A sophisticated man who loves life in London. A man who considers her his equal—and won’t try to tame her wild heart… IN THE HIGHLANDS Rough, rugged Highlander Niall MacTaggert and his brothers know the rules: the eldest must marry or lose the ancestral estate, period. But Niall’s eldest brother just isn’t interested in the lady his mother selected. Is it because Amelia-Rose is just too. . . Free-spirited? Yes. Brazen? Aye. Surely Niall can find a way to soften up the whip-smart lass and make her the perfect match for his brother for the sake of the family. JUST GOT A WHOLE LOT…

A- Frankly in Love by David Yoon September 10, 2019 · G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers Young Adult Frankly In Love has a lot of romance in it, but it’s a coming of age story, not a romance, and the ending is bittersweet. There’s some really painful stuff in here and some wonderful stuff, too. It’s a lovely YA that should also appeal to adults because of the strength of the writing and the power of the book’s themes. The book is narrated by Frank Li, a Korean-American high school senior. The narration is in first person, present tense. His parents immigrated from Korea before he was born and run a small store. His sister, Hanna, married an African-American man instead of a Korean. Because of this, Hanna has been disowned by her parents. Frank misses his sister and also fears a similar fate should he date, as he puts it, “outside the tribe.” It is very important to Frank’s parents that he date a Korean-American girl. Frank has two groups of friends. Every month, his parents get together with other families who immigrated from Korea at about the same time. The kids have grown up together at these…
