      Danielle Steel.
      "Power Play takes readers into the boardrooms and playgrounds of top tier corporate America, exploring the costs of great power through the intersecting stories of three indelible women: a high-powered CEO, a long-time 'corporate wife,' and an aspiring artist struggling to raise a family with an absentee father. The lives of three women are linked in ways that none could have imagined. Fiona Carson is one of the most successful women in the country as the CEO of a large corporation while also trying to find time for the role she considers most important - that of mother to her two children. After spending seventeen years in a failed marriage, she has embraced motherhood and her profession as the most rewarding aspects of her life, and has closed herself off to the prospect of new love. Liz Weston happily gave up her own promising law career to act as a 'corporate wife' to her husband of twenty-seven years, the CEO of the second-largest corporation in the country. With no regrets for what she has sacrificed, Liz finds her role as a wife and mother to be wholly satisfying, her love for her husband as strong as the day they met. Ashley Briggs is a thirty-year-old artist raising her twin daughters nearly on her own. She met the father of her children while working as a receptionist, but he has another life and a powerful job hundreds of miles away-- Each will be forced to reevaluate everything they are sure of as they realize that with greater power comes higher stakes" -- from publisher's web site.

      The collector [sound recording]
      Nora Roberts.
      "As a professional house-sitter and freelance writer, nothing ties Lila Emerson down--not her work, not a home, and definitely not a relationship. She spends her life moving from one job to the next, sometimes crashing at a friend's Manhattan apartment. And though she can appreciate her clients' extraordinary homes, their expensive collections, and their adorable pets, Lila has never longed for possessions of her own. Everything she has, including her heart, is portable. But when she witnesses a possible murder-suicide from her current apartment-sitting job, life as Lila knows it takes a dramatic turn. Artist Ashton Archer knows his charming, clever, and impulsive brother couldn't have killed his girlfriend--or taken his own life. His hope of unraveling what happened lies with Lila, the only eyewitness. And even buried in grief, Ash longs to paint the woman whose deep, dark eyes seem to hold endless reserves of strength and a fiery passion. Chalking up their intense attraction to the heat of the moment, Lila agrees to help Ash in trying to find out who murdered his brother and why. From the penthouses of Manhattan to grand Italian villas, their investigation draws them into a rarefied circle where priceless antiques are bought, sold, gambled away, and stolen, where what you possess is who you are, and where what you desire becomes a deadly obsession" -- from publisher's web site.
