As
the flames on the log fire flicker and the snowflakes swirl above the New York
streets, maybe this Christmas could be the one that changes everything…

When
Darcy returns to Manhattan, she’s put in charge of the Inglenook Inn, a cosy
boutique hotel in the heart of Greenwich Village. The Inn needs a boost in
bookings if it’s to survive the competition, so Darcy is convinced that hosting
Christmas this year is the answer. What she doesn’t expect is to meet a
face from the past, which can only spell trouble.
Myles
left England behind and took a job in New York. It’s a step forward in his
career and has the added bonus of being nowhere near his family. He’s also
hoping to avoid Christmas, the worst time of the year. But when his
company puts him up at the Inglenook Inn and he recognises Darcy, it isn’t long
before they clash. 
When
disaster strikes, can Myles and Darcy put their differences aside to make
Christmas at the Inglenook Inn a success?

Two
hundred years since Emily Brontë’s birth comes The Heights: a modern retelling
of Wuthering Heights set in 1980s Yorkshire.
A
grim discovery brings DCI Lockwood to Gimmerton’s Heights Estate – a bleak
patch of Yorkshire he thought he’d left behind for good. There, he must do
the unthinkable, and ask questions about the notorious Earnshaw family.
Decades
may have passed since Maggie closed the pits and the Earnshaws ran riot – but
old wounds remain raw. And, against his better judgement, DCI Lockwood is
soon drawn into a story. A story of an untameable boy, terrible rage, and two
families ripped apart. A story of passion, obsession, and dark acts of
revenge. And of beautiful Cathy Earnshaw – who now lies buried under cold
white marble in the shadow of the moors.

friend was meant to see – then she’d still be living like an actual proper
grown-up, tucked up with Paul in his picture-perfect cottage, maybe even
planning their wedding…
On
the other hand (if her true feelings hadn’t accidentally taken the internet by
storm, that is) she wouldn’t have moved into the attic flat on the square. She
would never have met Conor. Or got to know Lucas…
And
she wouldn’t have found herself falling in love with someone she really, really
shouldn’t fall in love with…
