London on 3 September 1939 is in upheaval. War is inevitable. Into this turmoil steps Kate Sheridan, newly arrived from Ireland to look for work. When she meets Flight Lieutenant Charlie Butler sparks fly, but he is a notorious womaniser. Should she ignore all the warnings and get involved with a ladies man whose life will be in daily danger?

Charlie Butler has no intention of getting involved with a woman. But when he meets Kate his resolve is shattered. Should he allow his heart to rule his head and fall for a nineteen-year-old Irish girl while there is a war to fight?

Private conflicts and personal doubts are soon overshadowed. Will the horrors of war bring Kate and Charlie together or tear them apart?

THE EPIPHANY OF AN EARL by Linda Rae Sande

Extra! Extra! Read all about it ...

The Earl of Fennington has a secret identity – he doubles as Mr. Pepperidge, editor of London's premiere gossip rag, The Tattler.

While attending a garden party as the Earl, he meets and falls in love with Lady Emelia. The attraction is instant and mutual, and a stolen kiss won’t cause any harm. Will it?

But when Fennington asks permission to marry Emelia, her father denies him, requiring him instead to court Emelia for eight weeks. Only allowed to see her once each week, Fennington devises a scheme to see more of her by posing as Mr. Pepperidge.

Each week they meet in the park where Emelia provides him with the gossip she hears whilst paying calls in Mayfair parlors. It’s that, or he'll print the scandalous news of her kiss with Fennington in The Tattler!

Meanwhile, Andrew Burroughs, the long lost love of Jane Vandermeer, Dowager Countess of Stoneleigh, returns to her life with a promise that he'll spend the rest of his life with her in London. The future suddenly looks bright, until The Tattler prints a report of Andrew kissing another woman. Now hurt and angered, Jane sets out to discover the truth while Emelia is about to discover one of her own—all while a new Gossip Goddess shares news of philandering fake aristocrats.

With mistaken identities ruling the reports in The Tattler, is it any wonder the members of the ton love to hate gossip? Or do they really love The Gossip of an Earl? The Tattler knows!

Build a Mate by Janice Croom

Homer Jackson is an alien from the planet Bronzeville. He’s on Earth finishing final tests for the XM-14, a humanoid robot capable of saving trapped miners. Homer wants nothing more than to finish his project and return to his planet.

Jasmine Green is a fire fighter. She still lives in the town she was born in and has led an unremarkable life until this full page ad ran in the paper on Black Friday:
Whatever you want.
Whenever you want.
For however long you want.
Build a Mate. Available this Christmas.

Unbeknownst to Homer, XM-14 was co-opted to develop Build a Mate. Unbeknownst to Jasmine, until the ad ran anyway, XM-14, aka Build a Mate, the country’s hottest Christmas present, looks exactly like her. So it’s perfectly understandable when Jasmine bursts into Homer’s office and demands her face back.

What’s not so understandable is how Jasmine’s face ended up on XM-14 in the first place and how a quest to right this wrong might lead to a love that spans the galaxy.
