I’m so excited to share the book club picks with you. The pick for the Fat Girls in Fiction
Book Club is one of my favorite reads of the year. I enjoyed this book for a myriad of reasons. I
cannot wait to discuss this book with all of you. And The pick for the After Dark Book Club was
one of the first truly spicey books I have ever read and started my love of Twyla Turner.

After Hours on Milagro Street

By Angelina M. Lopez

Guapo pobrecito her grandmother calls him. The “poor handsome man.”
Professor Jeremiah Post, the poor handsome man, is in fact standing in the way of Alejandra “Alex” Torres turning Loretta’s, her grandmother’s bar, into a viable business. The hot brainiac who sleeps in one of the upstairs tenant rooms already has all of her Mexican American family’s admiration; she
won’t let him have the bar and building she needs to resurrect her career, too.

Alex blowing into town has rocked Jeremiah to his mild-mannered core, but the large, boisterous Torres clan is everything he never had. He doesn’t believe Alex has the best interest of her family, their community, or the bar’s legacy in mind. To protect all three, he’ll stand up to the tough and
tattooed bartender with whom he now shares a bedroom wall—and resist the insta-lust they both feel.

But when an old enemy threatens Loretta’s and the surrounding neighborhood, Alex and Jeremiah must combine forces. It will take her might and his mind to save the home they both desperately need.

FGiF After Dark Book Club

Bound Through Time: Past

By Twyla Turner

Elliot Allen has known nothing but loss in her life. Becoming an orphan twice over, she has no one and fills her lonely days living vicariously through the adventurous stories of love in the historical romance novels she adores. Little does she know that a trip to visit the Scandinavian lands once occupied by Vikings would catapult her back nearly one-thousand years in the past like a heroine in one of her favorite books.

Thorin is the newest chieftain of his clan after the unexpected death of his eldest brother. Used to life as the baby brother, he’s done nothing but chase skirts and glory in battle. Is he really ready to lead an entire village? And would anyone try to challenge his seat as the leader of the richest clan on

Just as Thorin attempts to find his way as the chieftain, a mysterious woman with skin of bronze and hair as dark as night is dragged before him. Now as his captive, her beauty sets his blood on fire. Her spirit challenges him at every turn. And his weakness for her threatens his precarious place as chieftain.

Ellie’ fear of losing those she loves, jealousy and danger lurking around every corner, and being from two different worlds could rip them apart.

Will Ellie stay? Or will she be forced to return to her own time?
