Fae by C.J. Abedi
Caroline Ellis' sixteenth birthday sets into motion a series of events that have been fated for centuries. A descendant of Virginia Dare, the first child born in the lost colony of Roanoke, and unaware of her birthright as the heir to the throne of the Light Fae, it isn’t until Caroline begins a tumultuous relationship with Devilyn Reilly that the truth of her heritage is revealed.
Devilyn is the only Fae who is both of the Light and of the Dark, and struggles to maintain that precarious balance to avoid succumbing to the power of the Dark within him. He is the only one who can save Caroline from those who would destroy her and destroy all hope for unity among the Fae. He promises Caroline that he will protect her at all costs, even when it means protecting her from himself.
MISTRESS by Bonnie Hearn Hill
Standing outside the woman's apartment building in the swanky Nob Hill neighborhood of San Francisco, Reebie hears a scream followed by a gunshot. When the door is finally opened, Reebie is horrified to realize that the woman lying dead on the floor is not a stranger.
Within hours, the building is swarming with police and Reebie is their murder suspect. As she is dragged into a terrifying world where past and present collide, someone – a mobster, a television star, maybe Reebie herself – is going to die.
Based on the unpublished diaries of Rose Wilder Lane and other documentary evidence, A Wilder Rose tells the surprising true story of the often strained collaboration that produced the Little House books—a collaboration that Rose and her mother, Laura Ingalls Wilder, concealed from their agent, editors, reviewers, and readers. Acclaimed author Susan Wittig Albert follows the clues that take us straight to the heart of this fascinating literary mystery.
