A Compass Series Standalone
Author: Brittainy Cherry
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 9, 2021
 

 

BLURB

 

I always believed in fairy tales, but he preferred horrors.

 

 
Damian Blackstone didn’t care about my existence. He came into my world for one reason only. He came to find answers about his past.
 
He moved like the villain in my favorite fairy tales. He wasn’t the one who received the happily ever afters; he was the one who destroyed them.
 
Which was why I couldn’t understand why the man who raised me set it up in his will for Damian and me to be married. I wasn’t certain I’d be able to live with a man like Damian. We were as opposite as any two people could be. I loved to bathe in the sunlight while he prospered in the shadows.
 
I didn’t think I’d develop feelings for the one who looked at me as if I were nothing more than a means to an end. Yet in his darkness, sometimes I’d see sparks of light. I’d see gentleness. I’d see his soul.
 
We became entangled with one another as we fell into mistakes and called them fate. I was his Cinderella, and he was my Beast.
 
I wasn’t certain that twisted fairy tales ended with happily ever afters.
Still, I was determined to find out.

My Review...

The Compass Series

Oh how I have been waiting for the next story from this series and it was so worth the wait.

Western Waves is the story of Damian and Stella.

Stella is such a beautiful soul. I loved how she was developed and I felt such empathy for her. She tries hard to rise above her upbringing, with the unfailing love of her “family” and the destructiveness of the people that were closest to her. I love her affinity to the ocean and how she talks to her loved ones who have passed away. 

Damian, oh what a broken soul. I could feel his bitterness and anger at the world come off of the pages. I had big feelings for this character and wished I could give him a big hug. I love how Stella was able to soften some of Damian’s rough edges and holy swoon, when Damian decides to let Stella in, what a beautiful man.

As always I feel the spirituality in Ms. Cherry’s writing. She is able to take readers on a journey with her characters of self-discovery and how families are more than just blood relations. I am always left in awe and contemplation when I finish a story by Ms. Cherry.  Her talent for creating a beautiful world and creating the characters in it is a true testament to her brilliance. This is a story of love, both between her characters and also her characters learning how to love themselves.

The saying goes that nice guys finish last.

The more accurate statement is that nice guys and nerds finish last.

We don’t get the girl. We don’t get the happily ever after. Even if it is the one thing we’ve asked for from Santa Claus this Christmas.

So when Presley Dawson comes back into my life after twenty years, I don’t even try. What’s the point? As a Nashville Fury cheerleader, she is the fantasy of every man in Tennessee. What would the girl next door from my childhood want with a geek like me?

She’s outgoing. I’d rather stay inside. She’s adventurous. I think adventure comes in the form of a new video game.

We have nothing in common.

Except when we’re together. Then there are enough sparks to guide Santa’s sleigh without Rudolph.

But when she finds out that I never outgrew my geek phase, will she still want me? Or will our story be over before the ball drops at midnight?

 

 

My Review...

Oh how I wish this was a full story and not just a novella!

This quick holiday treat is going to grab you and cheer for the underdog!

This story of Gavin and Presley is sweet and steamy and all the things you love in a Chelle Sloan romance story! I loved visiting the world she created with the Nashville Fury!

I love how both Gavin and Presley had sides to themselves that they were afraid to show and they were perfect for each other!

Well done Ms. Sloan!

My Review...

What a riveting new story by the incredible mind and writing talent of R.C. Boldt.

This is the story of a woman washing up on a foreign shore with absolutely no memory of who she is.

This story will take you on a total mind trip, with some bold and smexy times along the way. This is about reinventing yourself. 

Dr. Liam King is an enigma; he is an island, he lives alone and prefers it this way. Until a woman arrives broken on his shore, and he learns what it means to love.

I love how Ms. Boldt wrote this story, the flow, and the interspersing of hints of the past. This story is fraught with mystery and intrigue that will keep you guessing until the very end. The hints and innuendos are lovely little teasers that bring even more to the story.  I found myself going back and re-reading pages and chapters to see if I missed anything, and that is something I rarely do.

This story had me immersed in the author’s world, and I didn’t want to put this down until the very end—definitely one of my best reads of 2021.

As a side note, I am hoping that a particular secondary character gets his own story.  I would love to read it!

If Only in My Dreams by Carrie Aarons is now live!

 

‘Tis the season to … be freshly divorced at twenty-six and moving back into your parents’ house?

Because that’s my reality this Christmas. As if it isn’t bad enough that my entire hometown is buzzing with the news of my failed marriage, who is the first person I bump into at the grocery store? The guy who treated me like his personal booty call in high school just happens to be looking at spices while I’m trying to pick up cinnamon for my mother.

And get this; Porter Kelly, the broody, mysterious recluse who exposed his own secrets to the world by writing a book about his family years ago, is the one who acts like I wronged him. His rude remarks on aisle nine are the final straw as my exhausted unhappiness breaks, and I’m officially calling off the most wonderful time of the year.

Too bad it’s literally impossible for the woman whose parents own a railroad that specializes in Christmas train rides to ignore the holiday season. Because I’m back under their roof, it’s mandatory to work in the middle of the red and green merriment, Santa himself, and wait for it …

Porter serenading us with the greatest festive hits of all time. That’s right, apparently my teenage heartthrob turned nemesis not only works for my parents, but can strum a guitar like he’s trying to get every soccer mom on board pregnant. As we’re forced to spend more time together than ever, his past baggage and my marital rejection make their way to the surface, bonding us in ways neither of us knew possible.

I thought I was heartbroken about my ex-husband wanting to end our marriage, but that pain is nothing compared to what Porter could inflict. He seems like a changed man, one on the precipice of a new chapter, which is exactly where I find myself. Would it be crazy to think we could turn the page together?

Returning home was the only option I had. But as I come dangerously close to counting on the first man who broke my heart, I wonder if all of my future dreams are too good to be true.

My Review...

This new holiday story by Ms. Aarons is going to give you all the feels!

This is the story of Madison and Porter.

Madison has gone back to her childhood home, feeling like a failure in life. She needs a soft place to fall, and home is where she hopes to find it. 

Porter is such an enigma; he is a ball of anger and frustration, and rightly so. When he sees his past in Madison, he reacts defensively.

The history between Madison and Porter is a high school train wreck of epic proportions. So when they see each other after several years, it’s like a house on fire. The chemistry that they shared back in the day burns brighter than ever.

Insecurities rear their ugly head with both of them, and yet the sparks still fly. I admired how both Madison and Porter were able to navigate their feelings and doubts while realizing their feelings for each other haven’t waned over the years. 

This was a fantastic story with a holiday spin; it was hard for me to put down once I started. 

See My Review for this book here!

Beard in Hiding, the USA Today bestselling companion novel to the Winston Brothers and Solving for Pies series is LIVE! Penny Reid delivers a heartfelt romantic comedy about two lost souls who find love in the most unexpected way.  

Propositioning the Iron Wraiths’ money man seemed like a good idea at the time…

Diane Donner—recently divorced pillar of polite society—is craving danger. She’s tired of playing it safe and she knows just the sexy criminal motorcycle man to proposition for a good time. Problem is, she doesn’t actually know his name.

Jason “Repo” Doe never takes risks. So when the queen of local commerce walks into his club, looking to get risky and frisky, Jason knows the smartest thing to do is save himself a headache while saving the new divorcee from her worst impulses.

But then one thing leads to another, and the memory of just-one-night doesn’t feel like enough.

Theirs is a story with no future, because how can a dangerous criminal win (and keep) a queen?

‘Beard In Hiding’ is book #4.5 in the Winston Brothers series, is a full length contemporary romantic comedy about two lost souls in their 40s, and is a companion novel to the Winston Brothers and Solving for Pie series.

If you want to get the full immersive Green Valley world experience, I recommend reading ‘Truth or Beard,’ ‘Beard Science,’ ‘Engagement and Espionage,’ and ‘Marriage and Murder’ beforehand. ‘Beard In Hiding’ contains spoilers for these four books (in specific).

Excerpt

“Just say it, Diane.”

“Fine.” She lifted her chin. “I want someone to court me.”

And there it was. I continued staring at her, counting the seconds as they ticked by. Why she couldn’t just say, I don’t want you, you’re not good enough for me, I had no idea. Did she think I needed to be let down gently? 

Well, now. That would be a first.

“I want dinners and flowers,” she went on. “And picnics and romantic gestures. I don’t want to constantly be making excuses for someone, for their lack of ability or skill or generosity.”

I deadened the needlingly ache behind my ribcage, suffocated thoughts and desires long abandoned. “Diane. You don’t need to say anything else.”

“I don’t?” Her features brightened and she approached the arm of the couch. “You understand what I mean?”

“Yes. You mean you don’t want me.” And that was fine, and it made sense, and I wasn’t going to dwell on it, and now I needed to go.

“What?” she snapped, her head tilting to the side like she needed to inspect me from a different angle. “No! No, you irritating man. Did I say that? That’s not at all what I’m saying.”

“Then what do you mean?” I glanced over her head toward the room’s exit, impatient to leave. I didn’t belong here, and I’d rather be stranded outside in a snowstorm than accept any more of her charity. 

“I mean, I want you.” 

My eyes cut back to hers and as I waited for the but—because there was always a but—I ignored the tightness seizing my lungs, the hope.  

When she kept on looking at me, as though expecting a reaction, I prompted, “But?”

“But nothing.” She placed her hands on her hips, her tone salty, impatient.

What? “There’s always a ‘but.’”

“Fine. Yes. Okay. There is a ‘but.’” Her eyes moved like she might roll them, but stopped when they reached the ceiling. “I want you. But . . . only if you want me the same way.”

I stared at her and that’s all I could do because I was so damn confused. 

Meanwhile, she peaked at me, nibbling her bottom lip, looking so goddamn gorgeous in her little nighty.

“Do you . . . want me?” The uncertainty in her voice, the vulnerability, hit low in my stomach.

“Pardon?” I choked out because, was hers a real question? How could she not know how much I wanted her? Hadn’t I just kissed the hell out of her? Hadn’t her breast just filled my palm? Hadn’t I just literally said the words, I want you

Her tongue flicked out to lick her lips and she stepped fully around the couch, her eyes huge. “I’ve been in a lonely, one-sided romance before. I don’t want that. I want something deep, something meaningful for both people involved. I’m not saying we have to get married. Lord knows, I’ve had enough of marriage to last a lifetime. I don’t think I’ll ever get married again. What I’m talking about is something real, authentic, passionate, but also—above all else—loving. Because what I’ve never had, what I’ve never known, is that.”

“I . . . don’t understand.”

Diane took a deep breath and then said loudly, “I want a relationship,” like the words were a painful confession and the only way she could speak it out loud was by shouting them.

I stared at her for a moment longer before finally asking, “With who?”

Her lips twitched. “With you.”

What? “With me.”

“Yes. But a real one, not just—and I can’t believe I’m saying this—not just sex.”

I barely heard a word she’d said, instead repeating, “With me,” again because the idea was absurd. A relationship with me? Is she crazy?

“Yes. With you. As I’ve said.”

“But . . . Why?”

“What do you mean why?” She frowned. It was severe. “Have you met you?”

“This is the funniest setup I’ve read all year! You’ll be cheering for Winnie and Dex!”
—Sarina Bowen, USA Today bestselling author

Ignite, an all-new sexy, grumpy single dad meets the sunshine girl next door romantic comedy from USA Today and #1 Amazon bestselling author Melanie Harlow, is now live!

My new neighbor is a firefighter—and a scorching hot single dad—but I swear I didn’t set off that smoke alarm on purpose.

(And I was beyond mortified when he rushed in and saw me naked.)

Nothing happened, of course—because I, Winnie MacAllister, romance junkie and owner of a constantly broken heart, have sworn off men for one solid year.

Even protective men with chiseled jaws, bulging biceps, and deep brown eyes that make my breath come faster. Even former SEALs with broad chests and strong hands that make my skin sizzle. Even gorgeous, grumpy guys who have their hands full raising two adorable little girls and claim they don’t believe in love.

Until Dex kisses me one night, and I drop all my defenses.

(Also my underwear.)

He says he’s not gentle, and he’s right. He says I should take the dream job I’m offered in another state, and he’s right. He says he’s too old for me and could never be the man I deserve.

He’s wrong.

Dex and I might be twelve years apart, but the fire between us is the kind that will never burn out.

How can I convince him to give happily-ever-after with me a chance?

Fall in love with Winnie and Dex for ZERO PENNIES in Kindle Unlimited today!

My Review...

As a huge fan of the Cloverleigh Farm series, I was so excited to see this new story of the next generation!

This is the story of Winnie and Dex, and boy did this grab me from the get-go!

Winnie is the daughter of Mac and Frannie, she is the youngest, but I felt like she had an old soul. I empathized with her problem of loving too fast, too hard and most often than not it was a huge determent to herself and her heart. So when she decides to focus on herself, that’s when fate pushes the perfect person at her. I loved how her inner dialogue was trying to keep her mind and her heart on the same page.

Dex is a single dad, I absolutely loved his girls! He has told himself that he is happy as he is, there is no need to add more to his world.  Then Winnie walks into it and sparks fly!

This story had the perfect amount of angst and holy smokes the heat and smexiness! The push and pull between Winnie and Dex really ignited the pages of this story!

I am hoping that more of the next generation of characters from the world of Cloverleaf Farms get their stories told too! It was wonderful to read how everyone was doing. It was like a family reunion, and I loved it!

Savage (adjective):
1) Not domesticated; wild and untamed
2) A brutal or vicious person
3) Malek Antonov

Savage Hearts, the highly-anticipated third standalone in the Queens & Monsters mafia romance series by JT Geissinger is available now!

Savage (adjective):
1) Not domesticated; wild and untamed
2) A brutal or vicious person
3) Malek Antonov

When my older sister calls out of the blue to announce she’s getting married, it’s a shock. She’s
not the settling-down kind, and we haven’t spoken in almost three years.
Even more of a shock? Sloane wants me to visit her and meet her new fiancé. Curious, I decide
to take her up on the offer.
I should’ve known something was wrong when she wouldn’t tell me where I’d be going. I
should’ve known things were odd when she sent a private jet to pick me up. But there’s no way
in hell I could’ve ever guessed what would happen when I finally meet her fiancé.
Declan O’Donnell.
Head of the Irish Mob.
Target of a savage Bratva assassin who wants revenge for the murder of his brother.
Now, I’m thousands of miles from home, I’m smack in the middle of a mafia war, and I’ve got a
Russian assassin who’s decided he likes the looks of me.
They say revenge is a dish best served cold.
They never met Malek Antonov.

Excerpt

“Yeah. Oh—can I ask you a favor? Will you please not hurt him? Kieran, either. He’s the other bodyguard. The bigger one. They’re both really nice.”
Malek stares at me in disbelief.
“Sorry. Is that asking too much? It’s just that I’d never get over it if they got hurt because of me. They’re only trying to do their jobs.”
After a moment, he says angrily, “You know who I am. You know what I do. Correct?”
“Yes. I’ve been filled in on the particulars.”
“And you’re lying there with my hand around your neck asking me not to hurt your bodyguards.”
He says it like my sanity is in question.
“I know it’s maybe a little unorthodox.”
“No,” he says flatly.
“Please?”
He growls, “What the fuck is wrong with you?”
“There’s no need to get testy.”
“Testy?”
“I’m just saying. You don’t have to get all mad about it.”
Furious again, he glares at me, grinding his jaw and probably calculating how much pressure it will take to snap the brittle bird bones in my neck.
Before he does, I say, “I also want to thank you for the rose you left me. That was really nice. I’ve never had a man bring me flowers before. I know it was only the one, and also you thought I was a captive prostitute at the time, but still. It was thoughtful. So thank you.”
He stares at me with an expression somewhere between confusion and amazement, with a healthy dose of disgust on the side.
“Now is probably a good time to remind you that I’m still the same person you left the rose for. So if you did kill me, you’d be killing her, too. Just a thought.”
“Are you on drugs?”
“Not at the moment, no. Why, do you have any?”
“There’s something wrong with you. Mentally. Right?”
That makes me laugh. “Oh, totally. I’ve got more than a few screws loose. At least that’s what my dad tells me. But he’s super uptight, zero imagination, so his opinion doesn’t really count. Not that he’s wrong, because he isn’t, but normies shouldn’t judge creatives. They just have no idea how we’re wired. Why are you looking at me like that?”
“I’ve never had a conversation with an insane person before.”
“Very funny.”
“It wasn’t a joke.”
“Ouch.”
We stare at each other in silence. His hostile, mine hopeful. He still hasn’t murdered me, so things are looking up.
“Malek?”
“What.” He says it flatly. With dread.
“Thank you for not killing me.”
He says emphatically, “Don’t thank me yet.”
“You’re still deciding?”
“If only to get you to shut up, yes.”
“In that case…” I make a zipper motion across my lips.
He watches with outrage, astonishment, and absolute disbelief.
“Actually, before I shut up, I also want to say that it was really sweet that you tried to save me from being a sex worker. I mean, what a gentleman! A gentleman killer who gives strangers big wads of cash in restrooms. You’re quite the puzzle, Mr. Ghost. Or is it just Ghost? I’m never sure how the nickname thing works, except between me and my sister, but that doesn’t count because my whole family is a little weird. I’ll just call you Malek, if that’s all right. Or Mal for short, since we’re such buds now, what with you breaking into my various bedrooms for midnight visits and all. Okay, I’m shutting up now. Here I go.”
I press my lips together and gaze up at him, watching him struggle with dueling urges to cut off my air supply or break something over my head.
Maybe he’s right about me being insane, because rather than terrifying, I find his indecision understandable.
He’s not the first man I’ve driven to the brink of murder. He’s just the most capable of actually going through with it.
“Oh, one more thing—”
“I know a way to keep that mouth quiet,” he snaps.
Then he kisses me.

My Review...

Queens & Monsters

Holy Crow!! This series just gets better and better! Now each book can be totally read as a stand-alone, but do yourself a favor and read them all!

This is the story of Reily and Mal and it’s going to melt your Kindles!

Reily is little, but she is fierce! I absolutely loved this character! She had zero fks to give and she wasn’t shy in telling those around her.  She gets an invite to visit her sister, which she finds strange but goes, and then all heck breaks loose.

Malek is death, he is the ghost you don’t see coming, the hangman that greets you and he is very, very good at his job. He is out for vengeance and will stop at nothing to get it.  He is feared by all, except for a tiny wisp of a gal named Reily and he doesn’t know how to wrap his head and his heart around this firecracker.

The multiple POV’s in this story is epic and really brings the characters and storyline together. As someone who has read this whole series it was fantastic to see past characters make appearances, it really added more depth and background to this world.

There are surprises that are going to make you gasp and I cannot wait for the next book in this series!

Beard in Hiding, an all-new companion novel to the bestselling Winston Brothers and Solving for Pies series is LIVE! Penny Reid delivers a heartfelt romantic comedy about two lost souls who find love in the most unexpected way.  

Propositioning the Iron Wraiths’ money man seemed like a good idea at the time…

Diane Donner—recently divorced pillar of polite society—is craving danger. She’s tired of playing it safe and she knows just the sexy criminal motorcycle man to proposition for a good time. Problem is, she doesn’t actually know his name.

Jason “Repo” Doe never takes risks. So when the queen of local commerce walks into his club, looking to get risky and frisky, Jason knows the smartest thing to do is save himself a headache while saving the new divorcee from her worst impulses.

But then one thing leads to another, and the memory of just-one-night doesn’t feel like enough.

Theirs is a story with no future, because how can a dangerous criminal win (and keep) a queen?

‘Beard In Hiding’ is book #4.5 in the Winston Brothers series, is a full length contemporary romantic comedy about two lost souls in their 40s, and is a companion novel to the Winston Brothers and Solving for Pie series.

If you want to get the full immersive Green Valley world experience, I recommend reading ‘Truth or Beard,’ ‘Beard Science,’ ‘Engagement and Espionage,’ and ‘Marriage and Murder’ beforehand. ‘Beard In Hiding’ contains spoilers for these four books (in specific).

My Review...

What a quick tasty treat from the talented mind of Penny Reid.

As an avid fan and reader of all her stories, I always wondered about Repo and Diane. Well, Ms. Reid has given me and her readers the answer and more with this newest story.

Repo and Diane are a true opposites attract story. But when you read them together, you can see how seamlessly they fit together. Diane smoothes Repo’s rough edges. Repo lets Diane be the person she wants to be and doesn’t try to fit her into any mold, like her previous relationships had. 

This was a delightful read, an expansion of Ms. Reid’s Green Valley world and I for one was more than happy to read and visualize Diane and Repo’s story in all its glory!

Blurb:

He doesn’t remember, but I could never forget…

A small-town girl like me was way too practical to expect a fairy tale, but that’s exactly what

happened when Lionel Kral walked through my honey stand.

He swept me off my feet with just a smile. I had no idea who he was, but I knew we were

from two very different worlds.

I tried to resist him, I really did, but the damn man was persistent. He promised to love me

forever… I believed every single word.

Then one day he just vanished and in my search for the man who stole my heart, I

discovered that my happily ever after was an evil fabrication.

The perfect future I envisioned for us collapsed in front of me like a house of cards.

The man I barely knew was more a stranger than I ever imagined.

Lionel asked for answers I didn’t have, and he couldn’t give me the only thing I craved from

him. Trust.

A gravity-like force drew us together, but deception tore us apart.

I refused to fall for another lie.

Could he offer me the love I’d always wanted?

If you love intense romances sprinkled with great banter and lots of steam, then you will love this page-turner story.

Blurb:

A WWII love at first sight romance with dual timelines, codebreaking war heroines, and prisoners of war.

People always asked Faye why Will called her Moxie.

It started with a dare at a dance in 1942 that ended in a kiss. Will loved that story.

But there’s more to the story than that. Much more . . .

Gretchen knows this story well. Her grandfather told it over and over while he was alive. But when Gretchen goes home to Jersey to be by her grandmother’s side one last time, Grandma Faye tells a different version of the story.

She knew the moment she saw him, they were meant to be together. Her girlfriends may have dared her to kiss him, but she would have anyway.

Then the war got in the way. Faye thought she’d never see Will again.

Until that night he took her breath away.

Will may have given Faye the name, but he’s the one with all the moxie.

My Review...

Wow! This story is going to grab you from the get-go!  The mystery and intrigue will keep you riveted until the very end.

This is the story of Stella and her husband. She meets him and he seems to change. She works hard to try to make this marriage work. 

She may look weak but she has a strong inner strength that carries her through the web of lies and deceit. 

Stella’s husband is a man of many faces, but which one is his true one. 

This story kept me guessing until the very end and holy heck what an ending it was!

Spun in the world of Corinne Micheals’ Salvation Society, it flows seamlessly with the rest of the world that has been created.

If you are looking for a fast-paced romantic suspense, get your hands on this newest story by the talented Ms. Susana Mohel.

How did you two meet?

The quintessential question asked to every couple. And the answer is usually some bubbly, lovey dovey tale of being struck in the bum by Cupid’s arrow.

My meet cute (well not so meet cute) is slightly different. I was trolling a wealthy neighborhood in Beverly Hills, searching for someone to take me as their bride, you know, to make my arch nemesis jealous who consequently just fired me.

He was stomping around the block like some sort of gorgeous ogre, mumbling about a business deal gone wrong and attempting to finagle his way out of it.

And that’s when we bumped into each other.

There were no sparks.

Not even a hint of blossoming love.

But next thing I knew, I was scarfing down free chips and guac, listening to this man lay out all of his problems which led to his big ask . . . he wanted me to be his Vivian Ward, you know, from Pretty Woman–minus the frisky behavior.

We’re talking about living in a mansion, intimate double dates, and pretending we were head over heels in love . . . and engaged. Can you imagine?

The absolute audacity.

But people do crazy things when they’re desperate. And I reeked of desperation. So, I struck up a deal.

My one big mistake, though . . . big . . . HUGE? I accidentally fell for the incomparable Huxley Cane.

My Review...

Gahhh! Meghan Quinn can write not wrong! She again shows her writing talents with this new story of Huxley and Lottie!

I love the nod to one of my all-time favorite movies Pretty Woman in this story. It’s fantastical and whimsical and all the good things you love in a romance!

Lottie is at her rock bottom and will do just about anything to save face with her family. She is embarrassed and hurt by her circumstances and a not so meet-cute with Huxley changes her world.

Huxley is all business and no joy. He will do and say anything to close the deal. Even it could bite him in the behind. When his mouth runs away from him, his desperation makes him rely on Lottie. 

Their relationship is nothing but rocky but boy did the physical really ramp up the heat. The walls that they had both built around their hearts and souls seem insurmountable. I love how Lottie was able to reach inside and smooth Huxley’s rough edges and make him a more relatable person.

The humor in this book is absolutely divine! I was laughing out loud at the situations that this couple were put in and how they survived it!

Ms. Quinn is the queen of humor, heart and heat in her books and this is no exception. I fell in love hard with Lottie and Huxley and what a perfect ending to their story!
