The Girl With Two Hearts by T.T. Thomas
You would think that if you were in line to sit on the British throne as Queen, you wouldn’t go running down to Africa during the Boer War hoping to find that bug, Jack Pierce, who left you without so much as a ‘Goodbye, Princess.’ Wouldn’t you?
On the other hand, Jack Pierce is not Jack Pierce, so who you going to be mad at if you find him?

Victoria Dormier is pretty much everything you’d expect from a young woman who is 65th in line of succession to the throne of Great Britain---a little crazy, a risk-taker, a passionate adventurer and…Jack’s girlfriend. This is a Royal like you’ve never seen one!

Healing Embrace by Anne Hagan
Barb and Janet were a couple…and then they weren’t. What now?
They started a tentative relationship that led to sex a little too soon. Both shied away but their friends knew the two women belonged together. They conspired to put them together in a neutral place where they could talk it out and it worked.
They talked. They started slow, with actually dating the second time around…but now what? They’ve both been shattered by love lost. They’re both wary of getting deeply involved again. It doesn’t help matters any when Barb’s focus gets drawn away from her own happiness to tend to the needs of others.
Janet tries to be understanding of Barb’s need to be there for her family. She knows she loves the fiercely independent blonde but she’s not so sure they belong together in a committed, long term sort of way, especially when her attempts to lend a hand from time to time seem to bring out more ire than gratefulness.
Barb’s dad and his health problems have her feeling years older than she already is. When she looks at the only slightly younger Janet, she sees the exuberance and inexperience of youth. She loves the curvy cop with her heart on her sleeve but she’s afraid the younger woman too often leaps before she considers all of the consequences.
What will it take to convince the two women that their personalities complement each other and that they’re a good match?

House of Bliss: The Intersection of Obsession and True Love.
London, 1905 When ladies of the night begin showing up dead in the dark and bawdy alleys of Covent Garden, the victims are wearing House of Bliss corsets made by Sabrina Blissdon. Now the police want to know how and why Blissdon, the bohemian but successful upmarket corsetière, appears to be dressing the dead.
Sabrina does know a few working women, from a time when she found comfort and solace with a couple of the occupants of a so-called tolerated house of London—boarding houses by day, brothels by night. But she is not eager to recall her youthful lusty pursuits—and dredge up memories of falling in love with Annabel North, a working woman who mysteriously disappeared three years earlier.
All Sabrina wants is to focus on her work and enjoy her current romance—substantial respites from old heartaches…but the dead women wearing House of Bliss corsets and the ghost of love forsaken torment Sabrina’s restless soul. Old questions surface and new ones challenge. Did Annabelle disappear on purpose? Is she dead or alive? Is someone intentionally trying to ruin Sabrina’s reputation, or worse, accuse her of murder?
Sabrina Blissdon is soon tempted into pursuing answers that could clear her name and save lives. What she discovers she may not be ready to accept when the evidence reveals the line between obsession and true love is often invisible to the blind spot in one’s heart.

Occasions of Sin by Elena Graf
For seven centuries, the German convent of Obberoth has been hiding the nuns' secrets—forbidden passions, scandalous manuscripts locked away, a ruined medical career, perhaps even a murder. In 1931, Margarethe von Stahle, an aristocratic physician, arrives at the convent to interview Sister Augustine, a candidate for head nurse. The nun’s past is shrouded in mystery. She abandoned a medical career, and her final vows were delayed for an unspeakable reason. Determined to lift the veil of secrecy, Margarethe finds herself embroiled in a murder mystery, a complicated romance, and a domestic drama that threatens her orderly life.
At once a mystery and a love story, Occasions of Sin is part of the Passing Rites series, which follows the aristocratic Stahle family through the 20th Century. This novel, set in the twilight years of the Weimar Republic, touches on issues the Nazis would later address in frightening ways—the role of women, homosexuality, abortion, euthanasia, and the rights of the individual versus duty to the group.

The Blondness of Honey by T.T. Thomas
What William Shakespeare Might Have Said About The Blondness of Honey:
“Love is blind” and “Love is merely madness.”
But when Laura Hastings fell in love in 1893 America, she wasn’t thinking about William Shakespeare. Maybe she should have been...but Laura Hastings is headstrong, brash, loyal, daring and completely oblivious to the notion of failure as an option. She and her friends Catherine Hastings and Rachel Delacourt are a match made in, uh, not heaven! Not all at once, anyway!
The Blondness of Honey is the story of young women bound by an uncommon love, and life, at a time when the Victorian notions of love and women called for more disciplined and rigorous adherence to traditional relationships. At least publicly.
This is the story of several women who came into their own sense of themselves with little help on how they might pattern their love and their lives. As the dictates of society and their own misunderstandings threaten to derail their impassioned loves, two events in the Nation play a direct part in the outcomes of love--the impending financial crash of 1893 that followed on the heels of the most extraordinary world’s fair, The Columbian Exposition, which opened in Chicago in May of that year.
The Blondness of Honey is set mainly in the San Francisco Bay area, including the nearly inaccessible, rugged and hauntingly beautiful Pt. Reyes Peninsula. Follow this colorful and memorable cast of friends, lovers, families and enemies as they try to make sense of a world where women were both adored and restricted. Follow them into a world where extravagant displays of wealth and acquisition settled in gorgeous mansions on tree-lined streets adjacent to the most poverty-stricken neighborhoods of tenements and hovels.
And watch as these American women discover something the throngs of proud immigrants already knew—that the language of love, and freedom, is that most elusive, non-denominational, non-ethnic value of all human endeavors: tolerance.

Target by L.C. Mawson
When Caroline swore a sacred oath to protect magic, she never anticipated falling for a human.
Caroline was used to Demons causing trouble, trying to toe the line of magical exposure to prompt the king into action against the humans. What she wasn't used to was them trying to destroy her city with a devastating curse.
Even more irritatingly, a new detective seems reluctant to simply hand over the investigation, and insists on following Caroline, despite it making her job nearly impossible.
The only thing that would make Caroline's job harder is if she actually started to fall for the detective, and Caroline had never been one to make things easy.
TARGET is an f/f paranormal romance novel set in L.C. Mawson's Snowverse.
