The Arrangement The Arrangement is an anthology containing historical romance novellas from Sylvia Day, Minerva Spencer, and Kristin Vayden. It’s on sale for $1.99! I’m unsure if the Day novella was previously published, but all the stores have a marriage of convenience theme. Some Goodreads reviews mention there being too much sexytimes. A trio of sizzling historical romances that prove passion is timeless . . .   MISCHIEF AND THE MARQUESS by Sylvia Day Justin, the Marquess of Fontaine, and Lady Sophie Milton-Riley are completely ill-suited to one another. But they will have to prove it in order to end their mothers’ insistence that they should marry. Yet the more they attempt to demonstrate how wrong their union would be, the more surprisingly, irresistibly right things feel . . . THE DUKE’S TREASURE by Minerva Spencer Plain, prickly Josephine Loman has loved Beaumont Halliwell, the Fifth Duke of Wroxton, since the first time she saw him. But the most beautiful man she’s ever met had eyes only for Jo’s erstwhile friend, who betrayed Beau’s trust by marrying his brother. Beau hasn’t been home in years, but when his brother dies in an accident, he must marry to save the impoverished dukedom. And Jo…

At-home workouts are great for people who don’t like group fitness classes, are too impatient to wait for weights or stations, or who want to keep moving on those days they want to work out but don’t want to leave home. And thankfully, there are tons of solid options on YouTube, so you can get a good sweat or stretch on, without having to pay for a gym membership. Now that we’ve all been told to quarantine and/or practice social distancing, I’m more grateful than ever for these options. Even better? I’ve been able to do many of them on the road (I recommend this travel yoga mat because it’s inexpensive, light, and folds up so it doesn’t take up much space). For most of these channels, you’ll only need a workout mat, comfy clothes, and shoes. Word of caution: we’re not doctors, physiotherapists, fitness instructors. Listen to your body, don’t do anything that doesn’t feel good, and consult with your doctor if you have any concerns. I rarely like doing the same type of workout twice in a row, so I bounce between a bunch of channels. That lets me get the right balance of cardio, strength, and stretching….

Kiki and I are both based in the Boston area and we were lucky enough to attend an event with Beverly Jenkins. While waiting in the signing line, we discussed some of our favorite Jenkins’ books with mine being Night Hawk. ( A | BN | K | AB ) I’m such a sucker for the cover (dark hat and a black duster without a shirt on underneath) and I told Kiki that the “sexy outlaw” archetype is my jam. She then had the brilliant suggestion of making it a Rec League. Thus this post was born! Tara also asked if they had to be historical romances, and I don’t think so. All outlaws are acceptable. EllenM: Oh boy I have a TON for this. Amanda: GIMME A | BN | K | AB EllenM: First, the Roaring 20s series by Jenn Bennett is about a family of prohibition-era bootleggers. also light speculative elements (ghosts, curses, etc). First one in the series is called Bitter Spirits. Then, the second Iron Seas book, Heart of Steel, ( A | BN | K | AB ) is about a treasure-hunter and a sky pirate, so DUAL sexy outlaws. Sort of steampunk-y enemies to…
