The My Dearest Enemy collection (partner to the My Dearest Friend collection) is out! It's been in the works since the end of 2015, and I feel as though I've been simmering in excitement this whole time.
I've always had a thing for enemies to lovers. When I pitched the dual call to my bosses at LT3, I wasn't sure which of the two I'd be running, but as much as I love a friends-to-lovers story (the pining, oh God, the pining), enemies is my jam. I think it's because the concept of enemies is so much larger than life. Who in their day to day can say they have an actual enemy? I think if pressed I could list a handful of people I'd prefer to politely ignore, but an enemy? That's the stuff of myths and legends.
All the MDE stories nail that sense of heightened reality--and stakes--in their own way.
The five stories are all quite different in terms of plot and even genre, but they all show us what a combustible force enemies-to-lovers is as a romance trope. I hope you enjoy the collection as much as I do.
