King Lear

Author: William Shakespeare Narrator: Edward James Beesley Release Date: August 2020

“When we are born, we cry that we are come to this great stage of fools.” King Lear has lived a long and difficult life as a king and decides that he wants to retire of his duties. To absolve himself of power, Lear decides to split his kingdom among his three daughters based on their affections toward him. While two of his daughters flatter their father and declare their fealty and respect, his third daughter refuses to flatter his ego and declares that she only loves him because he is her father. This disrespect causes Lear to leave her nothing.

The War of the Worlds

Author: H.G. Wells Narrator: Edward Beesley, Edward James Beesley Release Date: July 2020

From the father of science fiction comes the story of the fascinating conflict between humans and aliens in The War of the Worlds. The novel begins with humans watching the skies closely, fascinated with the worlds beyond Earth’s atmosphere. As astronomers and scientists hone in on some strange occurrences on Mars, their observations soon become frightening – humans are not the only intelligent beings, and those other beings are also curious about humans. Alien spacecraft starts crashing into England and as Martians emerge from the ships, they begin terrorizing the Earth and bringing destruction with every step. Cities are burned, families are torn apart, and human military power proves weak in the face of an unknown enemy. Humans will fight to protect their home planet, but at what cost? The War of the Worlds is a story about surviving in the face of destruction, the human desire to protect one’s home and loved ones, and a fascinating glance of how a harmful alien invasion could play out on Earth.

Wells remains one of the most important voices of the science fiction genre, and The War of the Worlds was one of the earliest works alien-based fiction, a trope that remains popular to this day.

Julius Caesar Audiobook

Julius Caesar

Author: William Shakespeare Narrator: Edward Beesley, Edward James Beesley Release Date: May 2020

“Men at some time are masters of their fates. The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings.” Julius Caesar is at the height of his power. He has just defeated his top rival and is basking in the glory of his triumph. Some believe that he is abusing his power, though, and behind his back, a conspiracy is developing to assassinate him. Even his close advisor Brutus is swayed to participate in the murder plot. Once Caesar is murdered, the conspirators are forced to explain themselves to Rome’s citizens and explain their intentions, and attempt to convince them that this murder was necessary to create peace. While many people understand their reasoning and agree that the murder was a tragic necessity, Caesar’s death exacerbates the conflicts and power struggles, and the rest of the tragedy demonstrates the bloody aftermath of the conspirators’ act of violence. Julius Caesar is one of Shakespeare’s most well-known history plays and is revered for its profound writing and thought-provoking perspective on this famous historical event. Shakespeare’s humanization of these real-life characters gives readers a peek into both sides of the story in an unforgettable way.

From RITA® Finalist and USA Today Bestselling Author Margaret Locke comes The Legendary Duke, the second in her Put Up Your Dukes Regency historical romance series.  For a Knight to win the Princess, he first must slay his dragons... A tragic event in his youth led Gavin Knight's mother to whisk him to Rome, where he lived a simple but secluded life-until, on her deathbed, she revealed who he truly was: the Duke of Cortleon. Now twenty-nine, Gavin has returned to England, determined to learn what happened all those years ago. Despite charming his fellow lords and ladies alike, the new Duke disregards any notion of nuptials, as his honor first demands resolution--and retribution. Then he meets Lady Elinor Greene. For seven years, renowned beauty Elinor has refused all proposals, fearing marriage would curb her freedom. But when her family falls on hard times, Nelle must sacrifice herself to save them by marrying a man of means. A wealthy widower seems the logical choice, a passionless union perfect.  Until she meets the Duke of Cortleon, and learns one Knight can be legendary. Soon Gavin and Elinor must each decide which quest is worth more: that for honor, or that for love... While second in the series, The Legendary Duke can easily be read as a standalone novel - especially because this story turned out to take place before that of The Demon Duke. (Oops.)  Loosely based on the Arthurian legend Gawain and the Green Knight, The Legendary Duke provides adventure, mystery, desire, and betrayal in this satisfying blend of Regency historical romance with a hint of medieval flavor ... and Arthurian Easter eggs pop up throughout!  You don't have to give a hoot about Arthurian legends to fall for this love / hate triangle for the ages, however; that's just an added bonus for geeks like me.  Category: Regency Historical romance Length: 108,000 words / 400 pages  'Terrific storytelling with lots of wit, derring-do, and tugging on the heartstrings!' - Grace Burrowes, NYT and USA Today Bestselling Author 'Locke seamlessly blends hints from classics like The Count of Monte Cristo, Pride and Prejudice, and Arthurian legend into an utterly enjoyable Regency romance.' - Publishers Weekly BookLife Prize
