Roomies with benefits and the potential for so much more in Marriage Lessons by Katie Ruggle, writing as Katie Allen Falling for your boss-no matter how fast he makes your pulse race-is such a cliché. But it's one Annabelle Shay can't seem to avoid. Gallery owner Louis Dumont is stupid hot. Plus, he's sweet, sensitive and a brilliant artist. But he's also oblivious. Which is good because Annabelle loves her job too much to risk it. Louis hasn't been with a woman since he was wounded in Afghanistan, remaining guarded about his body and his heart. But Annabelle is different. She keeps him grounded. Which is why protecting her-first pretending to be her husband to ward off unwanted attention, then inviting her to move in after her landlord kicks her out-feels so natural, even if it invites rampant temptation. Try as Annabelle might, there are some desires you simply can't shake. Louis repeatedly joke-asking her to marry him isn't helping, especially when their unbearable attraction upgrades them to roomies with benefits. But Louis is still keeping pieces of his past to himself, leaving Annabelle to wonder if he'll ever truly be vulnerable with her-or if she stands to lose everything. One-click with confidence.

Throughout Maya Angelou's life, from her childhood in Stamps, Arkansas, to her world travels as a bestselling writer, good food has played a central role. Preparing and enjoying homemade meals provides a sense of purpose and calm, accomplishment and connection. Now in "Hallelujah! The Welcome Table, Angelou shares memories pithy and poignant-and the recipes that helped to make them both indelible and irreplaceable. Angelou tells us about the time she was expelled from school for being afraid to speak-and her mother baked a delicious maple cake to brighten her spirits. She gives us her recipe for short ribs along with a story about a job she had as a cook at a Creole restaurant (never mind that she didn't know how to cook and had no idea what Creole food might entail). There was the time in London when she attended a wretched dinner party full of wretched people; but all wasn't lost-she did experience her initial taste of a savory onion tart. She recounts her very first night in her new home in Sonoma, California, when she invited M. F. K. Fisher over for cassoulet, and the evening Deca Mitford roasted a chicken when she was beyond tipsy-and created Chicken Drunkard Style. And then there was the hearty brunch Angelou made for a homesick Southerner, a meal that earned her both a job offer and a prophetic compliment: "If you can write half as good as you can cook, you are going to be famous." Maya Angelou is renowned in her wide and generous circle of friends as a marvelous chef. Her kitchen is a social center. From fried meat pies, chicken livers, and beef Wellington to caramel cake, bread pudding, and chocolate eclairs, the one hundred-plus recipes included here are all tried andtrue, and come from Angelou's heart and her home. "Hallelujah! The Welcome Table is a stunning collaboration between the two things Angelou loves best: writing and cooking.
