"Falling stars are supposed to be a lucky sign, but not for Austen. Her new job as a secretary in an international games company isn't off to a good start. Her first assignment--decorating the Christmas tree in the lobby--results in a trip to the ER after Dee, the company's second-in-command, gets hit by the star-shaped tree topper. Dee blames her instant attraction to Austen on her head wound, not the magic of the falling star. She's determined not to act on it, especially since Austen has no idea that Dee is practically her boss"--Back cover.

A deliciously charming novel about finding true love . . . and yourself. Nothing ever happens in Little, CA. Which is just the way Carter Moon likes it. But when Hollywood arrives to film a movie starring former child star turned PR mess Adam Jakes, everything changes. Carter's town becomes a giant glittery set and, much to her annoyance, everyone is starry-eyed for Adam. Carter seems to be the only girl not falling all over herself to get a glimpse of him. Which apparently makes her perfect for the secret offer of a lifetime: playing the role of Adam's girlfriend while he's in town, to improve his public image, in exchange for a hefty paycheck. Her family really needs the money and so Carters agrees. But it turns out Adam isn't at all who she thought he was. As they grow closer, their relationship walks a blurry line between what's real and what's fake, and Carter must open her eyes to the scariest of unexplored worlds - her future. Can Carter figure out what she wants out of life AND get the guy? Or are there no Hollywood endings in real life?

He has spent his life running from demons and making tabloid headlines that have sent his career into a tailspin. Now he's struggling to find his muse and maintain his newfound sobriety, all while counting on the woman he once betrayed to repair his tattered reputation. Naomi is determined to keep their relationship strictly professional, but that's not easy when an unexpected injury forces the former couple into disturbingly close proximity. Will mending their once-broken relationship be Naomi's best save yet? Or will Chance's past wreck any hope for a future together?

In order to move on from her highly publicized trial, she accepts the position as a Hollywood "Yoga Trainer" for a hugely successful company owned by her closest confidant from college.

In April 1950, a young woman boarded the Île de France in New York and headed across the Atlantic to Le Havre and her first great adventure in life. On board she met Paul, a little older than herself, and he was sophisticated, learned, fun, kind, modern and mysterious. Deeply attracted to him and sure she had found her 'Mr. Right', he kept her at a distance despite his tenderness and affection. Over the next few months, they travelled together across post-war Europe, soul mates in their love of art and culture, their relationship growing by the day. She yearned to abandon the strict moral code she - like so many women of that era - had been brought up with and give herself to him completely, but something held her back. There was something deeply disturbing about Paul's past, something he would not divulge. Her values encompassed marriage, a home, children, security and stability. Paul could offer none of these - he told her so and she believed him. And yet . . . the temptation to stay with him was overwhelming. Having torn herself away twice, she eventually left him and sought sanctuary in the high mountains of San Moritz, there to pray to God and the saints for guidance in making the right choice - to love him or to leave him. Within weeks, her prayers were answered. Born in Trieste, Italy, of Austrian parents, and brought up in America, Claudia developed into an artistic, musical, deeply religious and spiritual person. Her conservative upbringing did not prepare her for this very unconservative chapter in her life. Claudia is on a romantic journey, providing a flavour of a Europe that mostly no longer exists. She leads us through Paris, Rome, Assisi, Venice, Oberammergau, Heidelburg, Frankfurt, San Moritz, Lucerne, Innsbruck and more. Her story provides a snapshot of what life was like at that time: the sights and scenery, the visitors' attractions, the music, the art, the street life, the local people. With no regrets and looking back now over a very long and fulfilling life, she is compelled to tell us her story from 60 years ago as if urged to do so by Paul himself from beyond the grave.

Living Soviet in Ukraine from Stalin to Maidan

Under the Falling Red Star in Kharkiv

What the world is now witnessing in Ukraine is the cumulative effect of history and memory in the lives of the people of the region—and this book directly addresses those subjects. Although the majority of scholarship on the Soviet Union focuses on top-level political and intellectual elites, these groups were only tiny minorities. What was life like for the rest of society? What was it like for the vast population that usually supported the regime, mostly accepted the rules, essentially internalized the ideology, and generally made the same choices as their neighbors and friends? What was it like to live Soviet as the USSR hit its peak as a superpower and then fell apart? What was it like to live Soviet in Ukraine in the decade after independence? This book answers those questions. It is an oral history of a group of military colonels and their wives, children, and contemporaries, covering their lives from childhood to the present. During this period, these military families went from comfortable economic circumstances, professional prestige, and political influence as part of the Soviet upper stratum, to destitution and disgrace in the 1990s. Today, many of them are part of Europe’s largest ethnic minority—Russians in Ukraine. The geographic focus is Kharkiv, the second-largest city in Europe’s second-largest country, a Russian-speaking city in eastern Ukraine. Based on 3,000+ pages of interview transcripts and supplemented with materials gleaned from unprecedented access to personal, family, and institutional archives, the book investigates how families endured shifting social, cultural, and political realities. By analyzing the lives of individuals in context, Westrate provides insights at the grassroots level. He reveals how ideological, professional, gender, ethnic, and national imperatives—as developed and transmitted by elites—were internalized, transformed, or rejected by the rank and file. He reveals how the subjective identities of individuals and small groups developed and changed over time, and how that process relates to the parallel projects pursued by the leaders of their countries. In the process, he shows what those experiences have to offer the study of Soviet, post-Soviet, and transnational history, bridging the boundaries created by the collapse of the USSR and exploring the foundations of both twenty-first-century Ukraine and today’s conflicts.
