By Jenny Holiday

  • Paperback
  • £5.99

The first book in USA Today bestselling author Jenny Holiday's fun and flirty Bridesmaids Behaving Badly contemporary romance series.

Jane Denning has always been the responsible one among her friends. So it's par for the course when she's assigned a vital task to perform at her friend Elise's upcoming wedding: babysit Cameron McKinnon, half-brother of the groom and notorious hell-raiser.

Cameron McKinnon is used to being the family disappointment, the bad seed. Joining the military seemed like a good idea--but everything came crashing down when he was dishonorably discharged for attacking a superior officer. What he couldn't tell anyone was that the "attack" was defense of a fellow soldier. It just so happens his half-brother's wedding coincides with his first week as a civilian, and Cam figures he's due for some fun.The only problem is the wet blanket of a bridesmaid who has been assigned to "babysit" him.

Jane knows Cameron is trying to get rid of her with his over-the-top shenanigans, so she's surprised when she starts having fun and letting go of some of her inherent reserve. But when Jane places her trust in Cameron, can he become the man she needs him to be?

Biographical Notes

Jenny Holiday is a USA Today bestselling author who started writing at age nine when her awesome fourth-grade teacher gave her a notebook and told her to start writing some stories. That first batch featured mass murderers on the loose, alien invasions, and hauntings. (Looking back, she's amazed no one sent her to a shrink.) She's been writing ever since. After a detour to get a PhD in geography, she worked as a professional writer, producing everything from speeches to magazine articles. Later, her tastes having evolved from alien invasions to happily-ever-afters, she tried her hand at romance. Today she is the bestselling author of all sorts of romance novels: contemporary and historical, straight and gay. She lives in London, Ontario, with her family.

Desert Sniper

Ed Nash
Authors:
Ed Nash

What makes an ordinary but highly educated Englishman, with no previous military training, decide to travel and fight in one of the most brutal conflicts on the planet?Desert Sniper is an extraordinary, true account of one man's journey from well-meaning volunteer to battle-scarred combat sniper, placing himself daily in the line of fire to fight one of the greatest evils of this new century. Ed Nash has travelled across the globe, and is working with refugees in Burma, when he first becomes aware of the terrible atrocities being committed under ISIS's newly established 'Caliphate', covering vast tracts of Iraq and Syria. In June 2015, he chooses to undertake the hazardous journey, via Northern Iraq, to Syria, to join ill-equipped and poorly trained but battle-hardened Kurdish forces as they attempt to halt Daesh's relentless advance. Nash is an articulate, insightful and refreshingly honest companion as he unpacks the shifting complexities of the political and military situation in which he finds himself. As one of a motley band of foreign volunteer fighters - veterans of other conflicts, adventurers and misfits, from many different countries - we follow him through his rudimentary training and early combat operations as he and his companions slowly gain the trust and respect of their Kurdish colleagues.Nash shows us the realities of the war on the ground in Syria in fascinating detail; the privations of the ordinary Kurdish soldiers, the terrible price paid by civilians caught in the cross-fire, the ever-present danger of lethal suicide bombers and occasional moments of striking beauty in amongst the carnage. A modern classic in the making, Desert Sniper will prove to be one of the most unforgettable accounts to emerge from the war against ISIS.

Josh and Hazel's Guide to Not Dating

Christina Lauren
Authors:
Christina Lauren

Just friends. Just friends. JUST FRIENDS. If they repeat it enough, maybe it'll be true . . . Hazel Camille Bradford knows she's a lot to take - and frankly, most men aren't up to the challenge. If her army of pets and taste for the absurd don't send them running, her lack of filter and tendency to say exactly the wrong thing will. Their loss. Not everyone can handle a Hazel. Josh Im has known Hazel since college. From the first night they met - when she gracelessly threw up on his shoes - to when she sent him an unintelligible email while in a post-surgical haze, Josh has always thought of Hazel more as a spectacle than a peer. But now, ten years later, after a cheating girlfriend has turned his life upside down, going out with Hazel is a breath of fresh air.Not that Josh and Hazel date. At least, not each other. Because setting each other up on progressively terrible double blind dates means there's nothing between them . . . right?New York Times and #1 international bestselling author Christina Lauren (Roomies, Beautiful Bastard) tells the laugh-out-loud, uplifting story of two people who are completely wrong for each other - in all the right ways. 'Romance for the twenty-first century' Kirkus Reviews 'Endearing and hilarious. As per usual Christina Lauren has managed to exceed all expectations. You ladies make me love your characters more with every book you write and I. NEED. MORE.' Goodreads Reviewer'I am beyond glad that I had the chance to read this book this time around. It definitely brightened my mood and I will definitely be reading this beauty again.' Goodreads Reviewer'Fresh and wonderfully satisfying' Goodreads Reviewer
