Because of Miss Bridgerton by Julia Quinn
Everyone expects Billie Bridgerton to marry one of the Rokesby brothers. The two families have been neighbors for centuries, and as a child the tomboyish Billie ran wild with Edward and Andrew. Either one would make a perfect husband, someday. There is only one Rokesby Billie absolutely cannot tolerate, and that is George. He may be the eldest and heir to the earldom, but he's arrogant, annoying, and she's absolutely certain he detests her. Which is perfectly convenient, as she can't stand the sight of him, either. Because when Billie and George are quite literally thrown together, a whole new sort of sparks begins to fly.
A Brush of Wings by Karen Kingsbury
Despite needing a heart transplant and against the advice of her doctor, Mary Catherine moves to Uganda and starts work at a brand new orphanage. Whatever time she has left, Mary Catherine wants to spend it helping children, especially since there will be no children of her own. The only problem is Major League Baseball player Marcus Dillinger, the man she never meant to fall in love with. Neither Marcus nor Mary Catherine's other friends, Tyler Ames and Sami Dawson, know just how serious her heart condition is. Still, Marcus is sure in the depths of his soul that something isn't right. Ultimately, his correspondence with Mary Catherine leads him on a desperate life-or-death mission to rescue her and get her to a US hospital before time runs out.
Cold Barrel Zero by Matthew Quirk
John Byrne, a retired army doctor, has been working in the overnight Emergency Room of a Washington D.C. hospital, trying to outrun his past. The disavowed Joint Special Operations Command squad he once served with ended up carrying out a massacre deemed the worst atrocity in modern times. No one has seen the squad's leader, Thomas Hayes, until now. Hayes has reunited his former crew to initiate a series of ever-escalating heists that will either prove their innocence beyond a shadow of a doubt, or culminate in the worst terrorist attack against the United States.

Kieran Finnegan, who still works there whenever she can, has become a criminal psychologist. Meanwhile, New York's Diamond District has been hit by a rash of thefts. No one's been killed, until now. FBI agent Craig Frasier is brought in to investigate; he and Kieran meet at a jewelry store in the middle of a heist. She's there to 'unsteal' a flawless stone taken by her light-fingered youngest brother as an act of vengeance. He's there to stop the gang. Thrown together by circumstance, drawn together by attraction, Kieran and Craig both end up working on the case. Unfortunately, there's more and more evidence that, somehow, the pub is involved. Because everyone goes to Finnegan's.

Can he save the dragons? The stakes have never been higher, as the very fate of the Viking world hangs in the balance!
No Safe Secret by Fern Michaels
From her silver Mercedes to her designer kitchen, Molly's life is gleaming and beautiful, at least on the surface. Married to Tanner, a top cosmetic dentist, she has a wonderful daughter finishing high school and twin stepsons from Tanner's first marriage. No one in her exclusive neighborhood in Goldenhills, Massachusetts, knows what living with the demanding Tanner is really like. They know even less about the life she left behind in Florida almost two decades ago.
Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater
All her life, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love's death. She doesn't believe in true love and never thought this would be a problem, but as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she's not so sure anymore.
Taxidermist's Daughter by Kate Mosse
Sussex, 1912. In a churchyard, villagers gather on the night when the ghosts of those who will die in the coming year are thought to walk. Here, where the estuary leads out to the sea, superstitions still hold sway. Standing alone is the taxidermist's daughter. At twenty-two, Constantia Gifford lives with her father in a decaying house: it contains all that is left of Gifford's once world-famous museum of taxidermy.
