Stephen Sheerin was born to play on Broadway - or at least, under it. He´s a musician, a conductor, and his dream is to music-direct a big Broadway musical. After years of toiling in the pit of some of the best-loved (and loathed) hits on the Great White Way, he´s just been given his big break. Can life really be going that well? Of course not - his family is driving him crazy, and his boyfriend can´t seem to get rid of his other boyfriend. Add to that an alcoholic diva, the cheapest producing team on Broadway, and a comatose casting director, and you have some of the other characters buzzing around Stephen´s Broadway break. Then there´s Stephen himself - neurotic and bitchy - who realizes that maybe total happiness is overrated.

Three bank robbers are on the run following a rather unusual heist. They decide to seek shelter for the night in a tiny, seemingly harmless town. However, the following morning they awaken to discover that the town they chose is actually some form of disturbingly cheery utopia complete with sickly sweet citizens who have the rather odd habit of breaking into perfectly choreographed song and dance numbers. When they try to leave, they discover that getting out of this bizarre little village may not be as easy as they thought. As night begins to fall and the far more sinister side of the town begins to emerge from the shadows, they begin to realize they may not be able to escape with their lives at all. So, sing and dance along with our heroes! Impress your friends! Creep out your co-workers! Terrify strangers on the bus! As they try to fight their way past satanic show tune singers, shotgun-happy sheriffs, monsters, and more in Musicarolina, a tale of monsters, demons, criminals, and fabulous musical numbers! 1.

Anne Wynter might not be who she says she is.... But she´s managing quite well as a governess to three highborn young ladies. Her job can be a challenge: in a single week she finds herself hiding in a closet full of tubas, playing an evil queen in a play that might be a tragedy (or might be a comedy; no one is sure), and tending to the wounds of the oh-so-dashing Earl of Winstead. After years of dodging unwanted advances, he´s the first man who has truly tempted her, and it´s getting harder and harder to remind herself that a governess has no business flirting with a nobleman. Daniel Smythe-Smith might be in mortal danger.... But that´s not going to stop the young earl from falling in love. And when he spies a mysterious woman at his family´s annual musicale, he vows to pursue her, even if that means spending his days with a 10-year-old who thinks she´s a unicorn. But Daniel has an enemy, one who has vowed to see him dead. And when Anne is thrown into peril, he will stop at nothing to ensure their happy ending.... 1. Language: English.
