Victoria Smith's life seems dreary until someone knocks on a sealed door inside her London bookshop. When Tori discovers it's not a ghost but a journalist from 1854, she accidentally strands him in 2014. Intrigued by the dapper and crusading Charles Stratford, Tori offers to help him locate a pendant that will reopen the door to his century. Even when their treasure hunt across London turns dangerous, Tori finds herself wishing that Charles could stay. But after losing her family a decade before, can Tori risk loving someone again, especially a man from 1854?

Lured into the future by a mysterious pendant, Charles Stratford must track down its counterpart to unlock the door between Londons. When the winsome Victoria Smith volunteers to join his search, Charles becomes smitten with the intrepid bookseller. He also uncovers an ancient struggle between two underground societies and becomes entangled in their secret intrigues. If Charles fails to return both pendants to 1854, he places his own London at risk. But how can he succeed when it means saying farewell to Victoria in 2014?

From modern-day Soho to 19th-century Mayfair, The Never List takes readers on a whirlwind tour of Londons new and old, as its time-crossed heroes search for a way to love each other within two centuries. It is the first book in the Love Across Londons series which should be read in order.

After returning to London in 2014, Charles Stratford finds himself in need of a job – and answers to questions he'd rather not ask. Spurred by Tori's irrepressible spirit, Charles agrees to go in search of another hidden treasure, the Firestorm Amber of Brighton.

Guided by clues from his father's journal, Charles and Victoria are confronted by old foes and new friends when they travel to 1666, the year of the Great Fire of London. But their most loyal protector may turn out to be the one man Charles cannot forgive.

From present-day London to eighteenth-century Westminster, The Best-Left Questions continues the romantic adventures of Charles Stratford and Victoria Smith. It is the second book in the Love Across Londons series which should be read in order.

As Charles and Victoria settle into married life, the honeymoon is far from over. Neither are their struggles to understand why one member of a secret society wants to kidnap them and another one wants them dead.

When a dangerous artifact falls into enemy hands, Tori and Charles travel to 1811, the dawn of the Regency era. While they race to recover an ancient box which threatens the fabric of time, they must unravel a mystery from Charles' past to preserve their future together.

Charles is haunted by a history he does not comprehend – and can no longer ignore. To find the truth, he and Tori are forced to ask: what will they sacrifice to protect each other?

From the Roaring Twenties to Jane Austen's England, The Next Forever transports readers through time into Londons filled with intrigue, romance, and adventure.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NOW A STARZ ORIGINAL SERIES 

Unrivaled storytelling. Unforgettable characters. Rich historical detail. These are the hallmarks of Diana Gabaldon’s work. Her New York Times bestselling Outlander novels have earned the praise of critics and captured the hearts of millions of fans.

One of the top ten best-loved novels in America, as seen on PBS’s The Great American Read!

Scottish Highlands, 1945. Claire Randall, a former British combat nurse, is just back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an “outlander”—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding clans in the year of Our Lord . . . 1743.

Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of a world that threatens her life, and may shatter her heart. Marooned amid danger, passion, and violence, Claire learns her only chance of safety lies in Jamie Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior. What begins in compulsion becomes urgent need, and Claire finds herself torn between two very different men, in two irreconcilable lives.

• An excerpt from Diana Gabaldon’s Dragonfly in Amber, the second novel in the Outlander series

“Marvelous and fantastic adventures, romance, sex . . . perfect escape reading.”—San Francisco Chronicle

“History comes deliciously alive on the page.”—New York Daily News
A fun and flirty romance with a hint of suspense from the author of the Love Across Londons series. Clean. Sweet. A perfect beach read!

He's Britain's "uncatchable" bachelor. She's trying not to get caught.

Lou Aucoin has carved out a simple life for herself in the charming English town of Stratford-upon-Avon. Although it's an ocean away from her childhood home in the bayous of Louisiana, Stratford offers something which St. Charles Parish doesn't: safety from a threat that Lou never helped to create.

But one impulsive choice jeopardizes Lou's "safety first" world. After agreeing to go on a blind date in exchange for money to pay her sister's medical bills, Lou is required to attend the Stratford Gala with a man she hates - even though they've never met.

It turns out that Kip Richmond, "Britain's most uncatchable bachelor," is anything but easy to hate. And Kip feels nothing but love for Lou. Can Lou make room in her life for a man she's supposed to hate, especially when his every move may end up on tomorrow's front page?

Set against the delightful backdrop of Stratford-upon-Avon, She Hates Me Not blends heartwarming romance with mild suspense as Lou and Kip confront their troubled pasts in the hopes of loving again. It is the seventh novel by F. E. Greene and first in the Richer in Love romance series which can be read in any order.

"I enjoyed this charming love story featuring a spunky protagonist with a secret past. The suspenseful plot line and British setting were great. Highly recommended." - Pamela Fagan Hutchins, author of USA Best Book Award-winning What Doesn't Kill You mystery series
