Hosted by Emmy Z. Madrigal
Theme Music: Mr. Darcy’s Minuet by Michele Roger

Meant to Be... Mystified

Every romance begins with an element of mystery, and these five tales are no exception. Cozy up with a whodunnit at a ski resort, a scandalous nuptial theft, the secret held by an antique table, supernatural murders in a small town,  and a ghostly encounter at a Regency wedding. 

Can you solve these puzzles before the amorous sleuths? Or are you… MEANT TO BE…MYSTIFIED!

Meant to Be… Inspired

Readings by the authors this week.

Meant to Be…INSPIRED

Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything. ― Plato

Take a journey through five melody-infused worlds where music inspires love to bloom.

“Tempo of Temptation” by Lela Bay / Regency
Perhaps it is best that Mr. Leon doesn’t recall Petra's mortifying declaration of love. Could their intense attraction during an impromptu midnight concert inspire her to risk her heart again?

“Contact High” by Emmy Z. Madrigal / New Adult

Raul’s addiction is just another symptom of the hard life he’s been dealt but when Victoria sings, his troubles fade into the background. Can her music inspire him to get clean?

“Her Immortal Beloved” by M.M. Genet / Historical

Beethoven’s plan is to write the ultimate love song that transcends all time for his beloved. Will the woman of his heart let his music inspire her?

“Rick Prince and the Manhattan Muse” by Naching T. Kassa / Steamy

Heart-broken musician, Rick Prince, is inspired by the beautiful single-mother, Zella. He has no idea she holds a secret from his past which may tear them apart.

“Love Comes to Kenneth’s Valley” by Kate Nox / Inspirational

Grayson Greer motivates his congregation through music, but after the death of his wife, the pastime is shrouded in pain. Can Rachel’s love inspire him to move on?

009 Meant to Be... MINE
Hosted by Emmy Z. Madrigal
Theme Music: Mr. Darcy's Minuet by Michele Roger

Meant to Be… Mine

“Meant to Be MINE” music by Michele Roger

“The Unusual Manners of Mr. Aarons” by Lela Bay is of the unplanned variety. In this Regency tale, Emmaline is taken by Mr. Aaron’s good looks and peculiar interests, but it appears like he’s after her cousin. Beautiful Catherine Connersfield is the more sensible choice, but will she have him? More to the point, will Emmaline stand by and let her?

“That Feeling” by Emmy Z. Madrigal is of the unexpected type. In this modern tale, rock front man Greg Stang, falls in love at first sight (or is that first hear?) when he overhears the melancholy piano playing of the hauntingly beautiful Raven. Will she return his affections? Or is he just another guy blindly following her?

Naching T. Kassa gives us a sweet Valentine’s memory and a Shakespeare poem.

008 Meant to Be... Kissed
Hosted by Emmy Z. Madrigal
Theme Music: Mr. Darcy's Minuet by Michele Roger

Meant to Be… Kissed

“The Grand Gesture” by Lela Bay, takes a public humiliation and turns it into an act of heroism. Rosamund Windham, daughter to the duke, literally drops herself into a pool of filth to save an innocent and in the process befriends the girl’s brother. His sister quotes him as saying, “You can’t just throw two people together and expect sparks. It takes the right sorts, like flint and steel. They may not look like they go together until they hit up against each other. Then, sparks.”

“Miss Montague’s Winter Kiss” by Emmy Z. Madrigal turns sadness into hope. Grayson is a man who has lost everything, but Cecelia saves his life and rekindles his belief in love. Broken ice and traumatic losses give way to the start of something new, if only the hero can give up past hurts. As Emmy writes, “It was more of a feeling that, if the flame between them was fanned, they could be happy for the rest of their lives. He’d endured so much grief, she longed to bring him joy.”

“A Year and a Day” by M. M. Genet. Behold of the promise of the future.

And our newest author, Naching T. Kassa, talks about “The Gift of the Magi by O. Henry”

Hosted by Emmy Z. Madrigal
Theme Music: Mr. Darcy’s Minuet by Michele Roger

 

Meant to Be…Spooked

Falling in love is scary, especially in these four witty, otherworldly tales from Meant to Be Press:

“Parsers and Prejudice” by Emmy Z. Madrigal
Sometimes digital love is all you got.

In a future world, where men are all but extinct, Laney falls in love with her only companion, a male android built to meet her every need. But when a deadly virus sweeps the bot population, she must do everything she can to save the bot she loves.

“Cursed by Cupid” by Naching T. Kassa
Nothing is scarier than love.

Jane Sanders is a professional matchmaker and her new client is to die for. Henry Roberts is a handsome and charming Englishman, someone every woman would want. There’s just one problem. Henry is also ghost, cursed to appear as each woman’s nightmare. Can Jane aid him in his hunt for true love? Or will she experience her first failure and condemn his soul to hell forever?

“The Phone Booth” by M.M. Genet
What would you give for one last chance?

What would you give to talk one last time to someone you lost? Would you give up your savings, your house or car? How about your best friend or a member of your family? After a tornado hits their small town, the names of the missing gradually become the names of the dead. A haunted phone booth might give Ahi one last chance to call his missing girlfriend.

“Cordial Foe” by H.E. Roulo
Magic isn’t found, it’s made

If not for the magic embroidered into her tattoos, Cherry would already be dead. Isaac’s life revolves around duty and protection, so he hardly has time for the rockabilly woman bringing chaos to his mountain. Sometimes, a little chaos is a wake-up call. Too bad what Cherry wants is at odds with what Isaac has to give. His secrets might be worse than hers.
