    Summary

    After the Battle of Crait, Poe Dameron still suffers from the torture he faced at the hands of Kylo Ren and struggles to come to terms with the losses incurred from his failed attempt to take on the First Order. The Resistance's resident Jedi, a beautiful young woman from a desert planet, becomes a central part of his healing, and his life.

    Reeling from her inability to save Ben Solo, Rey tries to navigate the still existent bond between her and Kylo Ren. The dashing Resistance pilot, Poe Dameron, brings a brightness to her life, even as he suffers underneath his cocky demeanor. She hopes that it isn't her lifelong search for somewhere to belong that's convincing her that her place is by his side.

    Kylo Ren doesn't know his place in all this, not anymore. Is he meant to be Kylo Ren, Supreme Leader? Or will he give way to Ben Solo once more, captivated by a Scavenger who awakened the Light within him? He's beginning to realize that commanding the First Order may not be his destiny, after all.

    Summary

    King Poe of Spain does not meet his betrothed until their wedding day. His father had abdicated hastily, and a marriage needed to be performed to secure the future of the Dameron household; the princess of England, separated from the line of succession as she was, but still of an appropriate age and a beloved member of the royal family, was a logical choice.

    He does not know what to expect of Renata, but he hopes for the best.

    Even with his hope that they will at least get along and become friends in the face of their necessitated union, Poe never could have imagined falling in love with the woman meant to be his wife; but, when he begins to know Renata and feels the stars themselves fall into alignment, he realizes just how lucky his marriage really was.

    Summary

    Gandalf Grey is a menace. First he sends Thorin and his team on a wild goose chase for a kingdom that other archaeologists have spent fruitless years trying to find. Then they actually find it, depriving Thorin of the (well-deserved) chance to say "I told you so." And then there's the infuriating antlers in the throne room and the really annoying dungeons.

    Oh, and the comatose elf. Can't forget about her.

    Summary

    There are people who believe that romantic connections are the province of fate and destiny, the result of an alignment of constellations and conditions that bring two people together. Others tend to discuss falling in love as the product of rational decisions that acknowledge attraction and compatibility. Some people, however, seem to think these two seemingly-opposite perspectives are really just two sides of the same coin. Sometimes, after all, destiny just requires that two people make a single choice.
