    Summary

    "As a twenty-three year old virgin in 1922, Jane Gloriana Villanueva is not as out of place as her counterpart in 2014."

    It's the Roaring Twenties--liquor is illegal, hemlines are rising, and all Jane wants is to get a degree, become a published author, and marry the fella of her dreams (although not necessarily in that order). All Petra wants is an incontestable spot in society's upper echelons and oodles of money (both at the same time, preferably). Naturally they fall in love and everything goes to rack and to ruin.

    Summary

    Five Mafia families run 1920's Manhattan: the Lavellans, the Trevelyans, the Cadash's, the Adaars, and the Pavus'. Constantly at each other's throats over territory and bootlegging competition, the only thing the five families have in common is the code they all abide by: omerta, a code of conduct and secrecy that forbids cooperation with government authorities. When a member of a family falls prey to the law, they stay silent about anything and everything relating to their mafia lifestyle; that includes ratting out members of rival mafia families. Freddy Lavellan is the youngest son of mob boss Walter Lavellan. Freddy's job is to make deliveries of illegal alcohol to the Hightown speakeasy, an establishment owned and operated by long time friends of the Lavellan family: Varric Tethras, Cole Marchesi, and Solomon "Solas" Winters. Most nights, Freddy finds himself frequenting Hightown, getting his drinks on the house, listening to the soulful voice of upcoming artist Madame de Fer, and chatting the night away with the other regulars, such as the bold and beautiful Leliana Nightingale and the lovely Josephine Montilyet, daughter of the Montilyet mob boss of Chicago. All was well at Hightown... until a very unwelcome arrival.

    Summary

    Everyone knows about Smaug, the 'Dragon of The Mountain Manor.' He's vicious and vile and, as proven by his pristine police record, completely untouchable by the law. Nearly every crime committed in the city is known to be done by him and his gang, The Thrush Boys, but nobody has ever been able to prove it. When a precious jewel is stolen from the Erebor City Museum, nobody in the city is up to the task to retrieve it. So the curator, Gandalf, recruits help from out in the country. When Bilbo Baggins gets caught in the act of stealing back the Arkenstone to save the museum from going under, he is faced with a bargain: he can either leave the manor and be killed by a rival gang or join Smaug's. Neither option looks good from the start, but negotiations are always better over Chinese take-out.
