StarCrossed 2: Objects in the Mirror takes us back to the town of Salem, Massachusetts, famous for the witch trials of 1692. In the wake of that tragic time, the town has done everything in its power to be charitable toward its unique residents. Tarot readers, a nightclub with a twist, and little shops dedicated to the magical arts line the downtown streets. One of every four Salem residents claims either to be a witch or to know one. What newcomers don’t realize, however, is that witches are hardly the only usual people who might be living next door. Jace and Konnor Barton are identical twin demons enjoying a much-improved life after narrowly escaping a rough start. Given a second chance, they live in the protective care of their adoptive vampire parent, Gennady Zaitsev, and Fallon Demeter, Gennady’s young werefox lover. Trouble starts when a local clergyman is brutally murdered. The Salem Special Council—of which Gennady is the president—bears the responsibility of reining in a potentially dangerous supernatural citizen. Twenty years should have been enough to leave their difficult past behind them, but a nightmare comes charging after the Barton twins with an unholy vengeance. When one brother falls under suspicion for the clergy murder, it shatters the heart of the other. Only an unlikely alliance of angels, demons, vampires, were-animals, witches, and humans can save Jace Barton and keep the secret of supernaturals living in Salem safe from the outside world. The clock is ticking. * * * * * StarCrossed 2: Objects in the Mirror is a 55,000-word gay urban-fantasy novel (demons, angels, vampires, and shape-shifters), set in contemporary Salem, Massachusetts. The StarCrossed series of books are not stand-alone stories and should be read in the following order: 1. StarCrossed 1: Opposite Ends of the Spectrum 2. StarCrossed 2: Objects in the Mirror 3.

Brian Burke-Gaffney

Giacomo Puccini?s opera Madame Butterfly has enjoyed tremendous popularity in Europe and America since its debut in 1904; and has also inspired a global-level debate about whether the tragic heroine ?Cho-Cho-san? is based on a real-life model. As the setting of the opera, Nagasaki holds answers to this mostly ill-informed debate and yet has remained virtually silent on the topic, in large part because the story of Madame Butterfly was created by and for Westerners and evokes cultural stereotypes that are absurd if not repugnant to many Japanese.This book delves into the history of Nagasaki and into the literature from which the opera springs, based on a wide variety of primary sources in both Japanese and Western languages. It looks at the controversy about the identity of the opera?s heroine and presents compelling evidence that in fact there was no real life Cho-Cho-san. Penetrating beyond the discussion of Madame Butterfly as a work of art, Burke-Gaffney discusses the opera in the context of its importance as a window on Japan?s changing relationship with Europe and America from the seventeenth century through the post World War II period and as a vehicle for persisting misconceptions about Japan in particular and Asia in general.Finally, the book looks at the present state of Nagasaki sites related to the development of Madame Butterfly and demonstrates that despite the cultural disparities evoked by the opera, buried in the history of Nagasaki are many untold tales of true international romance and cooperation.

After the loss of his eldest child and only son, Mr. Bennet swears that no Darcy will ever darken the doorstep of Longbourn again... Elizabeth Bennet is only a child when she meets Fitzwilliam Darcy under the most inauspicious of circumstances. Outside the constraints of adult society, they form a fast friendship that is severed almost immediately by Mr. Bennet and his anger at the death of his son, John Bennet. Thirteen years later, it is love-at-second-sight, at a masquerade in Meryton... No longer a girl, but a young woman out in society, Elizabeth attends a masquerade in Meryton, only to dance two sets with a gentleman that she does not recognize but feels uncommonly drawn to. There are newcomers to Hertfordshire, letting out Netherfield Park, and this quiet, tall gentleman with an aristocratic mien must be one of them, for she does not know his voice and his face is hidden by his mask, but his eyes... Elizabeth Bennet, who has sworn off of love for herself so that she may never feel the touch of grief again, falls deeply and irrevocably in love with those dark eyes that follow her across the assembly hall each time she looks up. The last time he saw her, she was but a wisp of a thing, in need of a kind word and a friend... Elizabeth Bennet has grown into the kind of beauty that would break hearts were she to stay any length of time in London, with a cleverness and wit that catches Mr. Darcy by surprise. He had not wanted to attend the masquerade, and now he both deeply regrets and rejoices all at once at his decision to go. But the woman who has caught his eye, and his heart, is the daughter of a man who cursed him and barred the Darcys from the Longbourn estate and forbade any kinship with the Bennets, forever. Darcy regrets ever coming back to Hertfordshire, for he knows that after one dance with Elizabeth Bennet, his heart is forsworn to her, and after two dances, his mind is set: he will marry her, or live the rest of his life alone. But he cannot court her as himself; no Darcy would ever be permitted to marry a Bennet, never-mind how desperate the situations at Longbourn might be. And so Mr. Darcy must become someone else, in order to be with the woman of his dreams, and hope that his deception will not be discovered. But with a familial patriarch barring the way, and skeletons amongst the ton waiting to descend with outstretched claws, will Mr. Darcy finally find his happiness? And if Elizabeth Bennet discovers his secret, will she still accept him? This is a sweet, clean romance suitable for all lovers of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.
