Instead, she’s taken charge of its militia. But sometimes being an heir—even an unofficial one—has its uses, especially when she plans to kidnap a prince under the watchful eyes of the highborn.Too bad she’ll earn a treason charge and the hangman’s noose if she’s caught.Too bad the oracles have requested her assistance, giving her little time to sort out her love life—not that Tristan seems to care.Corrupt highborn heirs, handsome Bullstow politicians, a straining lowborn underclass, and the secluded oracles. Lila walks among them all, even the servants and slaves who make the country run, the militias who protect it, and the ex-slaves who would destroy it.Maybe Lila doesn’t fit in anywhere. Maybe she fits in everywhere a little too well.

Thornton are famous fighter pilots together in World War I. Willard returns to a hero's welcome in America and launches a film career. Abe just wants to fly - and he has no rich family to support him. When he crash lands in small-town Georgia, the locals recognise Abe and appeal to him for help. Alcohol-smuggling gangsters are trying to oust them from their own homes. But Abe can't see that his one patched-up aircraft can make much difference. Slowly, a plan forms and Abe needs help himself. Enter another tremendously skilled pilot - but it's a woman. Abe doesn't want to take her on, but she's the best there is and brave with it. Neither of them can predict exactly what they've let themselves in for. Willard, meanwhile, forsakes films for banking and rises fast - only to uncover some very dodgy business at the core of the company. He'd like to turn a blind eye but eventually he's in so deep that he can't. The firm is under serious threat, from a devious and resourceful attacker. Which is when Willard realises who it must be, and how he's going to have to team up with someone he'd always overlooked.

She jumps at the chance, for it's an opportunity not only to prove herself, but also to start fresh in a city and country that know nothing of her humble origins. But life in besieged Britain tests Ruby in ways she never imagined.Although most of Ruby's new colleagues welcome her, a few resent her presence, not only as an American but also as a woman. She is just beginning to find her feet, to feel at home in a country that is so familiar yet so foreign, when the bombs begin to fall. As the nightly horror of the Blitz stretches unbroken into weeks and months, Ruby must set aside her determination to remain an objective observer. When she loses everything but her life, and must depend upon the kindness of strangers, she learns for the first time the depth and measure of true friendship—and what it is to love a man who is burdened by secrets that aren’t his to share.Goodnight from London, inspired in part by the wartime experiences of the author’s own grandmother, is a captivating, heartfelt, and historically immersive story that readers are sure to embrace.
