Cage of Nightingales

Cage of Nightingales

Angelio, Book One

Elizabeth Hopkinson

In a highly-structured eighteenth-century society, the city state of Angelio is known for two things: its music, and its guardian, the Archangel Michael.

At Angelio’s music school—nicknamed the Cage of Nightingales—castrato singer Carlo is headed for fame at the opera … at the price of personal freedom. Charity pupil Tammo hates the school and everyone in it, and wants to live in the woods, charming birds with his flute.

When Tammo meets Carlo, their lives change forever. With the help of the Archangel, they can grant to each other whatever their hearts desire. But staying true isn’t easy, and their choices will affect not just their futures, but that of Celestina—a young aristocrat destined to be the third person in their relationship.

The Warrior and The King

Geneva Gordon

Tig is a woman of many talents. Her proficiency at martial arts has gained her celebrity status, she’s a former special operative, and she’s looking to ride the wave of her popularity and land a career in film.

None of this, however, fully prepares her for when she is transported to the distant past in the strange land of Moregane.

In this new land, she is given one task: kidnap Simon Lassiter, the King’s brother, and return him to Moregane for execution.

If she completes it, she gets to go home and return to her normal life. If she fails, she dies.

Determined to regain her life, she again finds herself unprepared when she develops feelings for her target. And the questions she asks herself could change her life forever. Is there a future for her and Simon in Moregane? Could she give up returning home in order to be with him?

He’s called her a coward, a woman afraid to love, a woman unable to love. She hates him for that. Why can’t they simply enjoy what they have? Why does the pleasure he’s shown her have to mean love?

But Jon discerns there’s more here than fear. Her feelings run deeper than she knows. A baby might hold the key to showing him how To Love This Woman.
