Austin Rogers´s dreams of domestic bliss involved watching Netflix and eating hot dogs with the love of her life. But then he cheated on her. And dumped her - as if the whole thing was her fault. To maintain her pride and restore her sanity, she decides to get revenge. It feels immensely satisfying to plot her ex´s downfall - but so does kissing him. Thatch Holloway, a plastic surgeon straight out of residency, knows he ruined the best thing that ever happened to him. But not all cheaters are created equal.

Following his father, Rupert’s, death, his son Edward is packed off to Cheatem Manor in the English countryside. Although Rupert’s cousin has inherited the estate, the man must remain at his military post, leaving the estate and Edward’s upbringing in the hands of his father’s half-sister, Lady Amanda, and her two very beautiful wards, Catherine and Prudence. Once at the Manor, Edward is quickly reduced in status from honoured family member to lowly servant. Rather than spending a pleasure-filled summer in the country, he’s forced to serve this hedonistic household as a virtual slave to the whims of two impetuous sisters, and their imperious matriarch. His behaviour is strictly controlled and any disobedience soundly punished. When caught furtively spying Catherine undressing before her bath, the poor boy’s soundly spanked by Lady Amanda - just the beginning of his torment. Like other males at the manor, he’s often made to wear cutaway pants that leave his cock and balls hanging out. And from the lovely libertines Catherine and Prudence, he learns the rudiments of sex in numerous encounters, but always as a submissive male. Though the treatment is shocking, young Edward has little choice but to follow along. However, when the new owner suddenly arrives on the scene unannounced, he stumbles on a pagan ritual taking place outside the manor. He watches, too shocked to stop the proceedings, as the servant William is bent over an alter and b******d with a dildo. Once it’s clear that Edward is next in line for the humiliating rite, the outraged owner steps from the shadows and abruptly halts the ceremony. Will the tables be turned? A new regime take over? Can the powerful Lady Amanda be stripped of her authority by Cheatem’s rightful owner? Surprises are sure to follow as the story unfolds. But can the natural order of life be restored to this ancient fortress? Or will Cheatem’s owner succumb to Amanda and her minions? Adults o... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Hugo Lawless.

From James McManus, author of the best-selling Positively Fifth Street, comes the definitive story of the game that, more than any other, reflects who we are and how we operate. Cowboys Full is the story of poker, from its roots in China, the Middle East, and Europe to its ascent as a global - but especially an American - phenomenon. It describes how early Americans took a French parlor game and, with a few extra cards and an entrepreneurial spirit, turned it into a national craze by the time of the Civil War. From the kitchen-table games of ordinary citizens to its influence on generals and diplomats, poker has gone hand in hand with our national experience. Presidents from Abraham Lincoln to Barack Obama have deployed poker and its strategies to explain policy, to relax with friends, to negotiate treaties and crises, and as a political networking tool. The ways we all do battle and business are echoed by poker tactics: cheating and thwarting cheaters, leveraging uncertainty, bluffing and sussing out bluffers, managing risk and reward. Cowboys Full shows how what was once accurately called the cheater´s game has become a mostly honest contest of cunning, mathematical precision, and luck. It explains how poker, formerly dominated by cardsharps, is now the most popular card game in Europe, East Asia, Australia, South America, and cyberspace, as well as on television. It combines colorful history with firsthand experience from today´s professional tour. And it examines poker´s remarkable hold on American culture, from paintings by Frederic Remington to countless poker novels, movies, and plays. Braiding the thrill of individual hands with new ways of seeing poker´s relevance to our military, diplomatic, business, and personal affairs, Cowboys Full is sure to become the classic account of America´s favorite pastime. 1.

Nashville Kitty is a sociopath. Don´t worry. She doesn´t want to hurt you. She just wants to screw you, literally. After years doing it the old-fashioned way, Nashville Kitty joins a cheaters´ dating website sending her on the scintillating, full-throttle, erotic thrill-ride of her dreams. The serial tryst artist is keenly aware of her sociopathic powers, leveraging them to get anything-and anyone-she wants. The more men (and occasional women) she possesses, the more she craves, until she finds a soul as pure as they come among adulterers. As danger and violence threaten to turn her sweet cheater´s dream into a nightmare, this special someone shows her a way out. But can this sociopath change? See for yourself in this erotic psychological thriller written as a fictional memoir infused with dark comedy to graphically paint the picture of a sociopath´s provocative world of sex, murder, mystery, suspense, and manipulation. It is an adventure you will not soon forget. Nicole Kelly, MD, is the nom de plume of an established Nashville physician who had first hand experience dealing with the manipulations of a sociopath who stole a vast sum of money from her medical practice. Nashville Kitty, the anti-hero narrator of 69 Shades of Nashville: Sociopathic Sex Southern Style was inspired by a true sociopathic sex addict who knows no bounds in causing havoc in neurotypicals´ lives. The names, details, locations, and all identifying information have been changed resulting in a fictional work - but this fiction was inspired by reality. Nicole Kelly, MD, began this writing adventure as a form of therapy when legal proceedings costs exceeded expected returns as the real Nashville Kitty had already spent the hundreds of thousands of dollars she stole. Therapy turned into a mission to educate the public about the sociopath - but to do so in an entertaining format so people can learn and enjoy themselves at the same time. 1. Language: English.
