Fangirl meets Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda in this funny and poignant coming-of-age novel from New York Times bestselling author Christina Lauren about two boys who fall in love in a writing class—one from a progressive family and the other from a conservative religious community.

Three years ago, Tanner Scott’s family relocated from California to Utah, a move that nudged the bisexual teen temporarily back into the closet. Now, with one semester of high school to go, and no obstacles between him and out-of-state college freedom, Tanner plans to coast through his remaining classes and clear out of Utah.

But when his best friend Autumn dares him to take Provo High’s prestigious Seminar—where honor roll students diligently toil to draft a book in a semester—Tanner can’t resist going against his better judgment and having a go, if only to prove to Autumn how silly the whole thing is. Writing a book in four months sounds simple. Four months is an eternity.

It turns out, Tanner is only partly right: four months is a long time. After all, it takes only one second for him to notice Sebastian Brother, the Mormon prodigy who sold his own Seminar novel the year before and who now mentors the class. And it takes less than a month for Tanner to fall completely in love with him.

From Julie Murphy, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Dumplin’ and Side Effects May Vary, comes another fearless heroine, Ramona Blue, in a gorgeously evocative novel about family, friendship, and how sometimes love can be more fluid than you first think. Perfect for fans of Rainbow Rowell and Morgan Matson.

Ramona was only five years old when Hurricane Katrina changed her life forever.

Since then, it’s been Ramona and her family against the world. Standing over six feet tall with unmistakable blue hair, Ramona is sure of three things: she likes girls, she’s fiercely devoted to her family, and she knows she’s destined for something bigger than the trailer she calls home in Eulogy, Mississippi.

But juggling multiple jobs, her flaky mom, and her well-meaning but ineffectual dad forces her to be the adult of the family. Now, with her sister, Hattie, pregnant, responsibility weighs more heavily than ever.

The return of her childhood friend Freddie brings a welcome distraction. Ramona’s friendship with the former competitive swimmer picks up exactly where it left off, and soon he’s talked her into joining him for laps at the pool.

But as Ramona falls in love with swimming, her feelings for Freddie begin to shift too, which is the last thing she expected. With her growing affection for Freddie making her question her sexual identity, Ramona begins to wonder if perhaps she likes girls and guys or if this new attraction is just a fluke.

Either way, Ramona will discover that, for her, life and love are more fluid than they seem.

Cuarta entrega de la serie «Beautiful».

Una atractiva y brillante ingeniera y el ejecutivo estrella de la empresa tendrán la oportunidad perfecta para que se desate una atracción irresistible que se convertirá en una relación secreta de lo más excitante.

Cuando el jefe de Ruby Miller le anuncia que deberá viajar a Nueva York para una estancia prolongada, su primera reacción es de estupor. Profesionalmente no hay ningún problema, ya que ella es uno de los ingenieros más brillantes de la empresa. Lo que la pone nerviosa es tener que trabajar codo con codo con Niall Stella, el ejecutivo estrella de la empresa, un remilgado londinense y «El Hombres más Sexy sobre la Faz de la Tierra». Hace tiempo que Ruby está loca por sus huesos, pero está segura de que él ni siquiera sabe que existe... Por su parte Niall, hasta que se percató de la vivaracha Ruby en una reunión. Nunca creyó tener un lado tan salvaje...

Niall no es precisamente un hombre propenso a dejarse llevar. Se acaba de divorciar, y más bien se considera un inútil con las mujeres. Pero en cuanto ella se propone seducirle, ya no hay vuelta atrás. A miles de kilómetros de Londres es fácil zambullirse en una apasionada y secreta historia de amor. Pero ¿sobrevivirá la relación cuando vuelvan a casa? Cuando la razón pugna con la pasión, ¿quién se alzará vencedora?

La crítica ha dicho...
«Beautiful Secret es tan fresca y tan adorablemente extravagante que -¡guau!- la tensión es explosiva.»
Rock Stars of Romace

«Como su héroe británico Niall, Beautiful Secret es muy excitante.»
USA Today's Happy Ever After

«Christina Lauren lee nuestras mentes y, de nuevo, crea en Niall un protagonista perfectamente delicioso a quien todas las chicas desearán. Esta nueva entrega de la serie "Beautiful Bastard" te convencerá de que bajo cualquier inglés aparentemente imperturbable hay una bestia esperando salir de entre las sábanas.»
That's Normal
