When Lorna Mills makes a love charm, and buries it under a late-blooming rose bush, she puts all her faith in the power of white witchcraft to summon her soulmate and a life with a happy-ever-after ending. But what she doesn't bargain for is the arrival of the enigmatic Joe Hardy who stumbles, quite literally, into her life one pristine summer's morning and turns her whole world upside down. Lorna embarks upon a tumultuous and highly unconventional affair with Joe - a man so perfect, so faultless in every way, he almost seems too good to be true.

When the dead need to talk, Alex Craft is always ready to listen… As a Grave Witch, Alex solves murders by raising the dead—an ability that comes at a cost, and after her last few cases, that cost is compounding. But her magic isn’t the only thing causing havoc in her life. While she’s always been on friendly terms with Death himself, things have recently become a whole lot more close and personal. Then there’s her sometime partner, agent Falin Andrews, who is under the glamour of the Winter Queen. To top everything off, her best friend has been forever changed by her time spent captive in Faerie. But the personal takes a backseat to the professional when a string of suicides occur in Nekros City and Alex is hired to investigate. The shades have no memory of the days leading up to their brutal endings, so despite the very public apparent suicides, this is murder. But what kind of magic can overcome the human will to survive? And why do the shades lack the memory of their deaths? Searching for the answer might mean Alex won’t have a life to remember at all…

As time passes and the Prentisses become more open to the new surroundings, the folklore of the area begins to invade Virginias dreams. Her sleeping hours are rich with nocturnal adventures, shared with both the indigenous people of the ancient days and the former convents more recent occupants; her dreams become a sort of mystical hodgepodge. Finally, on a raw autumn day, her dreams lead her on an arduous trek into the propertys deepest woods, where she discovers a hidden glenand her world is changed forever.

Ned Rorem explores the state of contemporary classical music in a magnificent collection of personally selected essays and critiques of masterworks, lesser works, and their legendary creators Pulitzer Prize–winner Ned Rorem’s musical compositions are considered some of the finest produced in the past century. His literary works have been hailed as “scintillating” (Time magazine) and “extraordinary” (The Washington Post). Rorem’s remarkable twin talents are brilliantly intertwined in Settling the Score, a masterful collection of essays on music, composers, and the state of the art. Selected by Rorem himself, these enthralling and provocative pieces examine the works of the great and (in the author’s lively, unabashed opinion) the not-so-great masters of twentieth-century classical music—Debussy, Ravel, Copland, Gershwin, Barber, Cage, Bernstein, Britten, Stravinsky, and others. With keen precision, he dissects the so-called serious music of our time while predicting where the form is bound in the future. Never lacking in intelligence or wit, each essay in Settling the Score sings in a voice that is clear and true.
