Set in a fictional Colorado town, Kent Haruf´s Where You Once Belonged brings to life small town America and the characters that keep the community together. Heavy-built Jack Burdette is quite literally too big for his boots - and too big, certainly, for the small-town attitudes of Holt, Colorado. But when he fails to make the grade as a college footballer, and takes a job with the local farmers´ cooperative, it seems he has finally settled into the rhythm and routine of everyday life. Outward appearances can be deceptive, however, as Jack proves: returning from a weekend conference with a new wife in tow, then leaving her behind and skipping town with a bundle of other folks´ money. Nearly a decade later, no one has forgiven or forgotten, and when Jack reappears, resentment runs high. Once again though, it is Jack whose presence - even more than his eight-year absence - proves the most devastating.
When the border between Floriana and the United States is opened after 80 years, Nathan and Caroline visit as official tourists and unofficial spies. Escorted around picturesque turn-of-the-century New Orleans, they quickly realize they are being prevented from seeing the real city - and evidence of an incipient revolution. After two assassination attempts, Nathan begins to question his loyalty to a king who may have deliberately placed them in harm´s way. The pair are determined to find out who is trying to kill them and why. A hurricane interrupts their search, and Nathan believes Caroline has drowned in the raging waters. Grief-stricken, he joins the revolution where he must face his deepest fears. Meanwhile, Caroline refuses to believe her rescuers when they tell her Nathan fell in the battle of New Orleans. Penniless and alone, she falls desperately ill. For once, Nathan and Caroline´s paranormal abilities fail to help. Will their love for each other be enough to reunite them? 1. Language: English.

Nick Garret is jaded, cynical, footloose and corruptible. He’s flypaper for females, and he likes it that way. They stick for a while, then fly away. So does he.

If she fails to help him pair three couples in everlasting bliss, he’s doomed to never experience real love. And she will share his fate—as a mortal.

Damien Archer, earl of Grayson, and Lady Charlotte Lawson are opposite in every way. Where his coloring is dark, she has blond tresses and blue eyes. Charlotte’s alabaster skin tone is a stark contrast to Damien’s sun-kissed tan. He is tall at six foot three, while she is short at barely over five feet tall. Furthermore, her cheerful disposition is in stark contrast to his brooding nature. But most bothersome of all is his tendency to flaunt society’s rules while she follows them without fail. Damien desires nothing more than to spend his time carousing, drinking, and gambling, while Charlotte spends hers at afternoon teas, balls, and musicals. She is a true lady and he a determined rake. When their paths cross, they have every reason to turn in the opposite direction, and yet they cannot seem to avoid one another. Passions flare, putting them both at risk. They stand not only to lose their reputations, but more importantly, their hearts. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mathias Holt.
