Great releases include Mary Balogh’s REMEMBER LOVE (Ravenswood Series), Carley Fortune’s EVERY SUMMER AFTER, Christine Feehan’s RED ON THE RIVER (Sunrise Lake Series), Anne Gracie’s THE RAKE’S DAUGHTER (Brides of Bellaire Gardens Series), Alexis Hall’s HUSBAND MATERIAL (London Calling Series), Ana Huang’s TWISTED LOVE (Twisted Series), J.P. Pomare’s THE WRONG WOMAN and Nalini Singh’s STORM ECHO (Psy-Changeling Trinity Series). Enjoy!

ARCHANGEL’S LIGHT Virtual Book Release Party with Nalini Singh

If you missed our virtual party with Nalini Singh on Thursday 28 October 2021 to celebrate the release of ARCHANGEL’S LIGHT, the recording is available at https://bit.ly/3ERvkZK  Passcode: 7h?GBhQS

Order Personalised Signed Book by Nalini Singh

The Chapter Book and Tea Shop is able to organize personalised signed copies of Nalini Singh’s titles that are available in print – New Zealand/International editions, USA editions and print-on-demand editions – in the Psy/Changeling, Psy/Changeling Trinity, Guild Hunter, Rock Kiss and Hard Play series as well as the standalone thrillers. We usually expect a signing to take around 1-5 working days to organize; and then shipping time should be added to that (currently international shipping is slower than normal). Please contact us if you wish to order a personalised signed copy, including any international orders.

General Book Orders

We have too many books to include on this web site, so please contact us today if you wish to order a book or if you’d like to receive our bi-monthly catalogue by email.
