ALL SIGNS POINT TO PARIS by Natasha Sizlo

AVAILABLE NOW

 •  Memoir / Romantic Comedy

A surprising astrology reading sends Natasha Sizlo—divorced, broke, freshly heartbroken, and reeling from her father’s death—on an unexpected but magical journey to France, in pursuit of a man born on a particular date in a particular place: November 2, 1968 in Paris.

It’s the cusp of Natasha Sizlo’s forty-fourth birthday. Still reeling from her disastrous divorce, she’s navigating life as a single mom and doing her best to fake it till she makes it in the cutthroat world of LA real estate. In the meantime, her ex-husband is dating a Hollywood star, and she’s just broken it off—for the hundredth and final time—with her devastatingly handsome but impossibly noncommittal French boyfriend.

Just when it seems things can’t get any worse, her beloved father is given months to live.

So when she’s gifted a session with LA’s most sought-after astrologist, Natasha—despite being a total skeptic—figures she has nothing to lose. The reading is eerily, impossibly accurate. As her misgivings give way, Natasha can’t help but ask about her ex-boyfriend, the French man she can’t seem to get over.

To her surprise, the astrologist tells her that he is perfect for her. His birthday and birthplace—November 2, 1968, in Paris, France—lines up with her astrological point of destiny. The word husband comes up.

Natasha is distraught. Panicked, even. Was he really The One? Was this all the big soul love she was destined for?

Then, she has a lightning bolt of an idea: her ex wasn’t the only man born on November 2, 1968, in Paris. Natasha’s real soulmate is still out there—she just has to find him.

Joined by her sister and two of her closest girlfriends and buoyed by her father’s parting message to never give up on love, Natasha flies to the City of Light, determined to take destiny into her own hands.

Propulsive, touching, and darkly funny, All Signs Point to Paris is the story of one woman’s search for a second chance at love, with a dusting of astrological magic. Unforgettable and inspiring, Natasha’s journey reveals what can happen when you ask the universe for what you want—and are brave enough to open your heart when the answer finally comes.

MOODY by Penelope Ward

AVAILABLE NOW

 •  Romance

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

The day I showed up to Dax Moody’s sprawling home, I had no idea what was coming.
As a traveling massage therapist, I was used to entering the houses of strangers.
But this assignment was different from any before it.
From the outside, I’d correctly assumed the owner was rich. What I didn’t realize was that he would be younger than I’d imagined, single, stunningly gorgeous, and mysterious.
Despite the fact that Dax had booked a massage, it never actually happened, since our first appointment was unexpectedly cut short by a comedy of errors.
Certain I’d never see him again after that day, I’d done nothing but think about the captivating man.
To my surprise, he called a second time. That appointment, we talked a lot, developing a stronger connection. But once again, there was no actual massage.
The man I now affectionately called “Moody” kept calling me to come back.
It took three times before I finally gave him the massage he’d ordered. Let’s just say it was challenging to keep things professional. I was extremely attracted to Dax, and by that time, I was falling hard.
Eventually, I’d find out why he’d been so aloof, the reason why he and I could never be together.
Our story was supposed to end there, but it didn’t.
Instead, I was left perpetually longing for a forbidden man.

Babel by R.F. Kuang

RELEASES August 23

AVAILABLE NOW

 •  Fantasy / Historical

From award-winning author R. F. Kuang comes Babel, a thematic response to The Secret History and a tonal retort to Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell that grapples with student revolutions, colonial resistance, and the use of language and translation as the dominating tool of the British empire.

Traduttore, traditore: An act of translation is always an act of betrayal.

1828. Robin Swift, orphaned by cholera in Canton, is brought to London by the mysterious Professor Lovell. There, he trains for years in Latin, Ancient Greek, and Chinese, all in preparation for the day he’ll enroll in Oxford University’s prestigious Royal Institute of Translation—also known as Babel.

Babel is the world’s center for translation and, more importantly, magic. Silver working—the art of manifesting the meaning lost in translation using enchanted silver bars—has made the British unparalleled in power, as its knowledge serves the Empire’s quest for colonization.

For Robin, Oxford is a utopia dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge. But knowledge obeys power, and as a Chinese boy raised in Britain, Robin realizes serving Babel means betraying his motherland. As his studies progress, Robin finds himself caught between Babel and the shadowy Hermes Society, an organization dedicated to stopping imperial expansion. When Britain pursues an unjust war with China over silver and opium, Robin must decide…

Can powerful institutions be changed from within, or does revolution always require violence?

Raised among London’s most notorious criminals, a twist of fate landed Adelaide Frampton in the bright ballrooms of Mayfair, where she masquerades as a quiet wallflower—so plain and unassuming that no one realizes she’s the Matchbreaker…using her superior skills as a thief to help unwilling brides avoid the altar, all while hiding her own scandalous past.

A former Confederate official is suspected of stealing the Declaration of Independence, and Raven, posing as his housekeeper, is tasked with getting it back.

LOVE ON THE BRAIN by Ali Hazelwood

RELEASES August 23

AVAILABLE NOW

 •  Romantic Comedy

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis comes a new STEMinist rom-com in which a scientist is forced to work on a project with her nemesis—with explosive results.

Like an avenging, purple-haired Jedi bringing balance to the mansplained universe, Bee Königswasser lives by a simple code: What would Marie Curie do? If NASA offered her the lead on a neuroengineering project—a literal dream come true after years scraping by on the crumbs of academia—Marie would accept without hesitation. Duh. But the mother of modern physics never had to co-lead with Levi Ward.

Sure, Levi is attractive in a tall, dark, and piercing-eyes kind of way. And sure, he caught her in his powerfully corded arms like a romance novel hero when she accidentally damseled in distress on her first day in the lab. But Levi made his feelings toward Bee very clear in grad school—archenemies work best employed in their own galaxies far, far away.

Now, her equipment is missing, the staff is ignoring her, and Bee finds her floundering career in somewhat of a pickle. Perhaps it’s her occipital cortex playing tricks on her, but Bee could swear she can see Levi softening into an ally, backing her plays, seconding her ideas…devouring her with those eyes. And the possibilities have all her neurons firing. But when it comes time to actually make a move and put her heart on the line, there’s only one question that matters: What will Bee Königswasser do?
