He wouldn't be tempted. Would he? Eve the temptress. Millionaire businessman Ethan Hayes told himself she was a spoilt little rich girl hell-bent on bringing men to their knees. However, when Eve was the victim of a senseless attack, Ethan rescued her and found himself posing as her fiancé in order to calm her elderly Greek grandfather's fears.

Author: Alice Hoffman

Publisher: Simon & Schuster (2016)

Growing up on Long Island, Shelby Richmond is an ordinary girl, until one night an extraordinary tragedy changes her fate. Her best friend’s future is destroyed in an accident, while Shelby walks away with the burden of guilt. What happens when a life is turned inside out? When love is something so distant it may as well be a star in the sky? Faithful is the story of a survivor, a moving portrait of a young woman finding her way in the modern world, filled with emotion – from dark suffering to true happiness. A fan of Chinese food, dogs, bookstores, and men she should stay away from, Shelby has to fight her way back to her own future. In New York City she finds a circle of lost and found souls – including an angel who’s been watching over her ever since that fateful icy night. Here is a character you will fall in love with, so believable and real and endearing that she captures both the ache of loneliness and the joy of finding yourself at last. For anyone who’s ever been a hurt teenager, for every mother of a daughter who has lost her way, Faithful is a road map. Alice Hoffman’s “trademark alchemy” (USA Today) and her ability to write about the “delicate balance between the everyday world and the extraordinary” (WBUR) make this an unforgettable story. Alice Hoffman spins hope from heartbreak in this beautifully crafted, profoundly moving novel.

Publisher: Pan (1973)

The Honourable Christopher Fancot, on leave from the diplomatic service in the summer of 1817, is startled to find his entrancing but incorrigibly extravagant mother on the brink of financial and social ruin - and more than alarmed to find that his twin, Evelyn, has disappeared without trace. Christopher - Kit - is forced into an outrageous masquerade by the tangled affairs of his wayward family: his rigid uncle, Lord Brumby, the surprisingly wily Sir Bonamy Ripple, the formidable old Lady Stavely and Evelyn's betrothed, Cressy. But in the face of Evelyn's continues absence, Kit's ingenuity is stretched to the limit ... In this typically wonderful and sweeping romance, Georgette Heyer shows all the skill that made her the queen of historical fiction for over fifty years - and won her a huge audience that continues to this day.

Fates And Furies

Author: Lauren Groff

Publisher: William Heinemann (2015)

Every story has two sides. Every relationship has two perspectives. And sometimes, it turns out, the key to a great marriage is not its truths but its secrets. At the core of this rich, expansive, layered novel, Lauren Groff presents the story of one such marriage over the course of twenty-four years. At age twenty-two, Lotto and Mathilde are tall, glamorous, madly in love and destined for greatness. A decade later, their marriage is still the envy of their friends, but with an electric thrill we understand that things are even more complicated and remarkable than they have seemed. With stunning revelations and multiple threads, and in prose that is vibrantly alive and original, Groff delivers a deeply satisfying novel about love, art, creativity and power that is unlike anything that has come before it. Profound, surprising, propulsive and emotionally riveting, it stirs both the mind and the heart.
