She's spent her whole life doing the right thing except that one time, that night when Finn O'Malley looked hollowed out by his father's death. Then she did something very wrong that felt terribly right. Finn can't stop thinking about Winter and that night, and he'll do anything to make her a permanent part of his life, even if it means separating Winter from the only family she has. Their love was supposed to be unrequited, but one grief-stricken guy and one girl with too big of a heart results in disastrous consequences. 1. Language: English.

There are parts of our lives which are predestined, and no matter how hard we try, we can’t change what will happen - what must happen. Andrew Manners understood that better than most, but it didn’t change how he felt about his past or his desire to change it. Even angels have regrets, and after living two mortal lifetimes in his angelic form, and with countless other years ahead, he would give it all up to be with the man he’d loved and lost for just one short lifetime together. “Everything has a price. Every journey has an end.” The price Andrew paid when his journey ended was immortality. A gift, some would say. A curse, others would whisper. He’s walked the earth for almost 100 years, putting aside all selfish needs while caring and offering comfort to others. When he finds a dying man on the streets of London, he’s unprepared for how it will change his life. “I never knew how my life could change in such a short space of time, or how one decision would affect the outcome in such a monumental way.” Josh is inconsolable after losing his partner, and as Andrew guides the grief stricken man through his pain, he’s forced to recall his own mortal life and the lover he left behind. Looking back allows him to see what he could find with Josh, but such a strong bond shouldn’t exist between a mortal and an angel, and Andrew struggles with the demands of his angelic duties and what his heart needs. “I found out it was possible to love, and be loved in return, only to face losing it all.”Knowing a relationship can only bring them both heartache, and unable to explain his angelic form, Andrew believes he will spend an eternity mourning what could have been.“The true measure of love is what you’re willing to give up for it.”With the terrifying prospect of living forever without the man he loves weighing heavily on his soul, Andrew seeks out a different path, one which could l 1.

In the fall of 1869 Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky, lately a resident of Germany, is summoned back to St. Petersburg by the sudden death of his stepson, Pavel. Half crazed with grief, stricken by epileptic seizures and erotically obsessed with his stepson's landlady, Dostoevsky is nevertheless intent on unravelling the enigma of Pavel's life. Was the boy a suicide or a murder victim? Did he love his stepfather or despise him? Was he a disciple of the revolutionary Nechaev, who even now is somewhere in St. Petersburg pursuing a dream of apocalyptic violence? As he follows his stepson's ghost - and becomes enmeshed in the same demonic conspiracies that claimed the boy - Dostoevsky emerges as a figure of unfathomable contradictions: naive and calculating, compassionate and cruel, pious and unspeakably perverse. 1.

In New York Times best-selling author Andrew Gross' propulsive thriller, set amid the drought-stricken oil country of Colorado's beautiful high plains, Ty Hauck makes his long-awaited return rallying beaten-down farmers and ranchers against a giant energy company in a deadly confrontation involving murder, retaliation, and cover-up. Leading a tour down the rapids outside Aspen, Colorado, whitewater guide Dani Haller comes upon the dead body of a close friend. Trey Watkins' death is ruled an accident. Finding evidence that seems to back up her suspicions that it wasn't, she takes her case to Wade Dunn, the local police chief and her ex-stepfather, with whom she shares some unresolved history. Wade insists the case is closed, but Rooster, a hot air balloon operator in town, claims he saw something from the air she should know. When he suddenly dies in a fiery crash, Dani threatens to take her suspicions public, goading Wade into tossing her in jail. When an old friend contacts Ty Hauck and says his daughter is in trouble, he doesn't hesitate to get involved. Together the two step into a sinister scheme running deep beneath the surface of a quiet, Colorado town that has made a deal with the devil to survive. But in the square off between giant energy companies and beaten-down ranchers and farmers, one resource is even more valuable in this drought-stricken region than oil - water. They both will kill for it. One Mile Under is a thrilling rapid run of hair-raising twists and unforeseen turns set against one of the most provocative environmental issues of our time. 1.

Unraveling cryptic clues and reading star charts is not what Detective Pitt had in mind for this stage of his life; he planned to be sitting in a cabin somewhere in Maine, finally retired from police work. However, when the police chief is stricken with cancer, the burden of keeping the little town of Beaumont secure falls squarely onto Pitt's tired shoulders.... 1. Language: English.
