3. Falling Into Fate – Ben My only happiness was ripped from me ten years ago, and my heart never stopped searching for my best friend and the only girl I ever loved. Imagine my surprise when I see her wandering around the autumn festival in Fate, of all places. Was I really this close to finding her for the last ten years? When I try to tell her who I am, she doesn’t believe me at first. She’s going to need some convincing that my motives are pure. Well, that’s just fine. When it comes to my best friend, I’ll stop at nothing to have her in my life again. My best friend may still be haunted by the past, but I’m going to turn the world upside down to make her happy again. Billie’s mine. She’s always been mine, and there was never anybody else for me. From now on, I’m not going to spend a single day without her. Billie As an organizer of my town’s first ever Fall Fiber Festival, I have a lot on my mind. I don’t have time for random beer brewer from the next town over. No matter how nicely he fills out that flannel and those jeans. But when that cute guy from the beer stand claims to be my childhood best friend, I’m going to need a minute to process. If he even is the real Ben. Either way, he’s opened up a whole lot of old wounds, and he has some explaining to do. And, frankly, so do I. I’ve been working too hard to heal from the past, and I’m not going to let anyone pull me back.
4. Fate’s Dark Shadows – Silent Doyle I only wish to be left alone. Being the town recluse is my penance for what my family has done to this once-thriving town. I’ve taken a vow of silence, and it serves to keep people at a distance, as well as keep the storm that roils inside my head under tenuous control. Meeting new people in Fate usually means more people to keep at arm’s length, but once I lay eyes on Maya, everything changes. The clamor in my brain stops when she’s near. My hard heart begins to crack open. Worst of all, I have a new desire to no longer be alone. But if I claim her as mine, what then? She has her whole life ahead of her. Will I just be using her to soothe my inner demons? I couldn’t live with myself if I took advantage of a young woman with such a sweet nature. Still, she’s there. Everywhere I go, Maya is reaching out with a caring touch and a healing presence. I know in my heart there is no one else for me, but there is no way this beautiful angel will be able to stand the monster in me for long. Maya I don’t quite understand this new town I’ve stumbled into. And I definitely do not understand this man who keeps staring at me while I’m working at the diner. He lives alone in a big black mansion and doesn’t speak out loud to anyone. And yet, everyone in Fate acts like this is completely normal. He and his Edward Cullen-like vibe just won’t leave me alone. It’s almost as if he knows… Ever since I was a young teen, I’ve had urges I don’t understand. I like older men, and I’d like to be handled a certain way. I’ve never entertained these desires, and I’ve been careful not to let my guard down around the wrong person. And yet, I feel like Silent Doyle is someone who understands. It makes no sense for me to trust him. Yet the more I let myself fall into his gaze, I’m under his thrall. We just met, and yet all I want to do is for him to lay me bare and take what he wants.

The Figaro Murders by Laura Lebow Requirements: .ePUB reader, 982 KB Overview: In 1786 Vienna, Lorenzo Da Ponte is the court librettist for the Italian Theatre during the height of the enlightened reign of Emperor Joseph II. This exalted position doesn’t mean he’s particularly well paid, or even out of reach of the endless intrigues of the opera world. In fact, far from it.
One morning, Da Ponte stops off at his barber, only to find the man being taken away to debtor’s prison. Da Ponte impetuously agrees to carry a message to his barber’s fiancée and try to help her set him free, even though he’s facing pressures of his own. He’s got one week to finish the libretto for The Marriage of Figaro for Mozart before the opera is premiered for the Emperor himself.
Da Ponte visits the house where the barber’s fiancée works—the home of a nobleman, high in the Vienna’s diplomatic circles—and then returns to his own apartments, only to be dragged from his rooms in the middle of the night. It seems the young protégé of the diplomat was killed right about the time Da Ponte was visiting, and he happens to be their main suspect. Now he’s given a choice—go undercover into the household and uncover the murderer, or be hanged for the crime himself.
Brilliantly recreating the cultural world of late 18th century Vienna, the epicenter of the Enlightenment, Lebow brings to life some of the most famous figures of music, theatre, and politics. Genre: Fiction > Mystery/Thriller
