Random House Dispatches from Random House, offering a glimpse into one of the world's most prestigious publishing houses. In 1925, Bennett Cerf and Donald Klopfer, two New Yorkers in their mid-twenties, acquired The Modern Library, a stable of classics and contemporary American works.

The company assumed the name Random House two years later when Cerf and Klopfer decided to publish a few books on the side, “at random.”

Today Random House is the proud publishing home of the world’s most acclaimed storytellers, thought leaders, and innovators. The Random House portfolio of imprints includes include Ballantine Books, Bantam Dell, Delacorte Press, Del Rey, The Dial Press, Modern

“There is nothing stronger than a broken woman who has rebuilt herself,” Hannah Gadsby declared in her show, Nanette.

Harrowing and hilarious, TEN STEPS TO NANETTE traces Gadsby’s growth as a queer person, to her ever-evolving relationship with comedy, and her struggle with late-in-life diagnoses of autism and ADHD, finally arriving at the backbone of Nanette: the renouncement of self-deprecation, the rejection of misogyny, and the moral significance of truth-telling.

TEN STEPS TO NANETTE properly introduces us to one of the most explosive, formative voices of our time. Out now!

Aphrodite and the Duke

Series: Standalone

Genre: Regency Romance

Release Date: August 23, 2022

A jilted beauty and a regretful duke discover that second chances can be divine in this diverse Regency romance for fans of Bridgerton

Aphrodite Du Bell has always resented her name. While the members of the ton, and even the queen herself, praise her warm brown skin, perfect curls, and exquisite features, Aphrodite can’t help but think that living up to the literal goddess of beauty is asking a bit much. Her renowned loveliness certainly didn’t stop the love of her life from jilting her and marrying another woman four years ago.

When Aphrodite’s formidable mother summons her back to London to aid in her sister’s debut, she has no choice but to acquiesce. But Aphrodite is determined to ignore one man in particular: Evander Eagleman, the Duke of Everely, the man who devastated her all those years ago. Yet why does her guileless heart still flutter at the sight of him?

Evander Eagleman lost his chance for true love, but now that he is a widower and no longer attached, he is determined to win back Aphrodite’s trust—and her hand in marriage. But just as the couple make strides to mend old wounds, Evander’s true reason for rejecting Aphrodite threatens their coveted future…and even their lives.
