Stephanie Pe rkins’ Anna and the French Kiss meets Heather Hepler’s Cupcake Queen.
Rosie Radeke firmly believes that happiness can be found at the bottom of a mixing bowl. But she never expected that she, a random nobody from East Liberty, Ohio, would be accepted to celebrity chef Denis Laurent’s school in Paris—the most prestigious cooking program for teens in the entire world. She also never expected to meet Henry, a Korean-American teen from Chicago who loves to cook just as much as Rosie does.
But life in Paris isn’t all cream puffs and crepes. Faced with a challenging curriculum and a nightmare professor, Rosie begins to doubt her dishes. As she and Henry fall in love with Paris—and maybe each other—she wonders if she has to say goodbye to East Liberty, her complicated past, and the girl she was before in order to become a real chef.
LA VIE EN ROSIE is a story of first kisses, fromage, and finding your voice—from one of YA fiction’s leading writers of romantic comedy.

Disney-Hyperion, Fall 2017. World English.
PRİNCE İN DİSGUİSEis full of hilarity, romance, and reality-TV-worthy surprises—part L.A. Candy, part Sweet Home Alabama.
Life is real enough for Dylan—especially as the ordinary younger sister of Dusty, former Miss Mississippi and the most perfect, most popular girl in Tupelo. But when Dusty wins the hand of the handsome Scottish laird-to-be Ronan on the TRC television network’s crown jewel, “Prince in Disguise,” Dylan has to face a different kind of reality: reality TV.
The camera crew whisks them off to Scotland to film the wedding, and the producers are full of surprises—including old family secrets, long-lost relatives, and a hostile future mother-in-law who thinks Dusty and Dylan’s family isn’t good enough for her only son. At least there’s Jamie, an adorably bookish groomsman who might just be the perfect antidote to all Dylan’s stress…if she just can keep TRC from turning her into the next television sensation.

Finished books available.
Libby Kelting had always felt herself born out of time. No wonder the historical romance-reading, Jane Austen-adaptation-watching, all-around history nerd jumped at the chance to intern at Camden Harbor, Maine’s Oldest Living History Museum. But at Camden Harbor Libby’s just plain out of place, no matter how cute she looks in a corset. Her cat-loving coworker wants her dead, the too-smart-for-his-own-good local reporter keeps pushing her buttons, her gorgeous sailor may be more shipwreck than dreamboat — plus Camden Harbor’s haunted. Over the course of one unforgettable summer, Libby learns that boys, like ghosts, aren’t always what they seem.
