If you’re in the mood for a spicy romance book, you’ll want to turn to Butcher & Blackbird by Brynne Weaver. This has a great mixture of dark romance, spice, and comedy thrown in. By the end, you’re sure to want more.

There is a little bit of good news. Weaver already has more books in the series planned. Butcher & Blackbird is the first in The Ruinous Love trilogy.

However, there is a little bit of bad news when it comes to wanting to see more of Sloane and Rowan. The trilogy isn’t going to follow them specifically.

What is the next book in The Ruinous Love trilogy?

The next book in the trilogy is called Leather & Lark. If you’ve read Butcher & Blackbird, you’ll know who one of those characters is. Lark is Sloane’s best friend. In fact, Lark is her only friend.

Leather is Rowan’s brother, Lachlan Kane. He wants a quiet life working in his leather studio. However, he’s also a contract killer, and when he botches a job, he needs to figure out a way to get out from the underworld. He doesn’t think that’s going to be possible, until he’s offered another deal.

Lark Monague has a job for him. However, they need to get married first. And of course, they can’t stand each other. That is until they start to see their dark secrets and realize that they may not be all that different from each other.

Leather & Lark is expected to be published on Tuesday, June 4.

The third book in the trilogy is going to be called Scythe & Sparrow. And yes, you can guess that “Scythe” is another brother of Rowan. This one is set to follow Fionn, the doctor brother we met in Butcher & Blackbird.

You’ll already know Sparrow, too. That’s Rose, the circus motorcycle performer who is already with Fionn in the first book. However, it looks like this novel is going to take place before the events of Butcher & Blackbird to show us how the two met.

There aren’t that many details for this story just yet. Scythe & Sparrow is set to be published on Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2025.
