For two sworn enemies, anything can happen during the Hawaiian trip of a lifetime—maybe even love—in this romantic comedy from the New York Times bestselling authors of Roomies. Olive Torres is used to being the unlucky twin: from inexplicable mishaps to a recent layoff, her life seems to be almost comically jinxed. By contrast, her sister Ami is an eternal champion . . . she even managed to finance her entire wedding by winning a slew of contests. Unfortunately for Olive, the only thing worse than constant bad luck is having to spend the wedding day with the best man (and her nemesis), Ethan Thomas. Olive braces herself for wedding hell, determined to put on a brave face, but when the entire wedding party gets food poisoning, the only people who aren’t affected are Olive and Ethan. Suddenly there’s a free honeymoon up for grabs, and Olive will be damned if Ethan gets to enjoy paradise solo. Agreeing to a temporary truce, the pair head for Maui. After all, ten days of bliss is worth having to assume the role of loving newlyweds, right? But the weird thing is . . . Olive doesn’t mind playing pretend. In fact, the more she pretends to be the luckiest woman alive, the more it feels like she might be. With Christina Lauren’s “uniquely hilarious and touching voice” (Entertainment Weekly), The Unhoneymooners is a romance for anyone who has ever felt unlucky in love.

Celebrate the best of New York Times bestselling author Christina Lauren with this boxed set featuring the “joyful, warm, touching” (Jasmine Guillory, New York Times bestselling author) The Unhoneymooners, the “emotional, sweet, and surprising” (Shondaland) Twice in a Blue Moon, and the “touching romantic comedy” (Shelf Awareness) The Honey-Don’t List. In The Unhoneymooners, unlucky twin Olive Torres is not looking forward to her lucky sister’s glamorous wedding. She’s especially dreading being forced to spend the day with the best man (and her nemesis), Ethan Thomas. But when the entire wedding party gets food poisoning—except for Olive and Ethan—her sister’s free Hawaiian honeymoon is up for grabs. Agreeing to a temporary truce, Olive and Ethan head to Maui pretending to be newlyweds…but soon realize that pretending isn’t so hard, after all. In Twice in a Blue Moon, Tate Jones confesses her deepest secret—that she is the hidden child of a famous movie star—to her first love Sam Brandis. But when it becomes clear that her trust was misplaced, her world is shattered. Fourteen years later, Tate, now an up-and-coming actress, walks onto the set of her first big film and is shocked to find Sam there as well. Forced to confront the man who betrayed her, Tate wonders if “once in a lifetime” can come around twice. The Honey-Don’t List follows Carey Duncan—assistant to home remodeling gurus Melissa and Rusty Tripp—as she helps bring her bosses to superstardom with a new TV show and book. The only problem: America’s favorite couple despises each other. Meanwhile, James McCann, recently hired as an engineer for the Tripps, is trapped in a job he hates. Neither Carey nor James can afford to quit, so they agree to work together and keep their bosses’ secret for at least a few more weeks. But if they stop playing along—and start playing for keeps—they may have the chance to build something beautiful together. Charming, witty, and full of heart, this boxed set proves once again that “you can never go wrong with a Christina Lauren novel” (Entertainment Weekly).

When his mother became President, Alex Claremont-Diaz was promptly cast as the American equivalent of a young royal. Handsome, charismatic, genius—his image is pure millennial-marketing gold for the White House. There's only one problem: Alex has a beef with the actual prince, Henry, across the pond.
