Gooood morning, my darlings. It’s Monday. Brand new start to the week! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend — we went to a wedding of one of my husband’s friends this weekend and we’re still recovering. It’s been a while since we drank that much and stayed up that late. Thankfully, my MIL watched Will so we could stay at a hotel! The wedding was just far enough away that we didn’t want to drive home afterwards. It was a lot of fun, though! Now we all just need to catch up on some sleep.

This book came out fairly recently, so many of you will have seen it around! I currently have it on hold at the library — here’s hoping my turn will come up on it soon!


“Stolen me? As soon to say a caged bird can be stolen by the sky.”

Velasin vin Aaro never planned to marry at all, let alone a girl from neighboring Tithena. When an ugly confrontation reveals his preference for men, Vel fears he’s ruined the diplomatic union before it can even begin. But while his family is ready to disown him, the Tithenai envoy has a different solution: for Vel to marry his former intended’s brother instead.

Caethari Aeduria always knew he might end up in a political marriage, but his sudden betrothal to a man from Ralia, where such relationships are forbidden, comes as a shock.

With an unknown faction willing to kill to end their new alliance, Vel and Cae have no choice but to trust each other. Survival is one thing, but love—as both will learn—is quite another.

Byzantine politics, lush sexual energy, and a queer love story that is by turns sweet and sultry. A Strange and Stubborn Endurance is an exploration of gender, identity, and self-worth. It is a book that will live in your heart long after you turn the last page.

Here’s hoping you and yours have a great week!
