Never too late to forgive and forget ���

A faerie’s life isn’t always the stuff of fantasy ���

There’s always a twist in the tail of Melissa Hill’s feel-good romances, and this Irish number one bestseller doesn’t disappoint.

Discover the dark and dangerous magic of Laurell K. Hamilton in this sensual faerie fantasy for grown-up fans of Stephenie Meyer. In the eighth adventure from the queen of paranormal romance’s Meredith Gentry series, the ex-princess is pregnant with twins to the men she loves and should be settling down to Los Angeles life. But the English Fey Independent Party has a new role in mind for Merry: faerie Prime Minister! Meanwhile, LA’s fey folk won’t give up their faerie godmother without a fight.

In Please Forgive Me, the author of Wishful Thinking asks whether it’s ever too late to forgive and forget. At its centre is Leonie, who was once in love and engaged to be married ... until she fled Dublin for a place where no-one knows her secrets. The discovery of a bundle of love letters, all ending with the words ‘please forgive me’, propels her on a journey to deliver them to their rightful owner in the hope she can forgive the man who sent them. What Leonie doesn’t anticipate is that her quest just might resolve some forgiveness issues of her own. Softcover •
