After a traumatic breakup leaves her emotionally scarred and therapy pushes her past her breaking point, Alex departs from her New Jersey hometown to stay with her cousin, Caleigh, in LA, hoping to distance herself from boy trouble for the summer. Enter Elias King, 17-year-old whirlwind with a reputation for tearing through girls and leaving a string of broken hearts behind. Still reeling from a tragic accident that resulted in the death of his girlfriend, Elias relies on drugs, alcohol, and sex to drown his pain. When Elias´ addictions nearly leave him homeless, his brother offers him a place to stay at his girlfriend Caleigh´s house, complete with a new roommate tailor-made to clean up his act. Once Alex and Elias find themselves sharing a space in Caleigh´s tiny guest room, their night-and-day personality differences set them on the warpath. Though the two try to deny their intense sexual attraction, a simple bet changes the game.

But if Elias loses, he has to spill the dark secret surrounding the death of his ex. If Alex fails, she has to reveal her virgin status to Elias.

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? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Hugo Lawless.

Noah´s text says, I´ve found some candidates for murder. Ray chuckles and knows that Noah sent the message to cheer him. Both boys realize they stand apart from others their age. One lacks social graces, the other has perfected being charming.

Marriage matches for the Venetian nobility were not preordained by God in heaven, they were skillfully negotiated by fathers looking to enhance their own prestige and wealth.A 17th century young lady could overlook petty shortcomings in her future husband, if he were rich, held a title, and was easy on the eyes. Mauro Baric would have been such a desirable match. As heir to a Venetian barony, Mauro had connections to powerful political allies that would please a future father-in-law. As a bonus to the potential bride, he was indeed attractive and desirable. Mauro did have some quirks, though, perhaps due to his crazy mother´s neglect, or his father ruining Mauro´s wish to die a hero´s death on a battlefield somewhere, or his own lingering guilt over his brother´s accident. He was the last male of the House of Baric and must marry soon, but his match was sealed years ago. Terese Kokkinos - Resi, as her family called her - was not a Venetian lady. She was the daughter of an Ottoman sea trader and was not interested in marrying an aristocrat any more than Mauro wanted a common Greek girl as his bride. But what they wanted was irrelevant. Betrothed as children to repay Resi´s father´s debt to the Barics, their paired future together was the keystone to The House of Barics´ continued success, as well as proof of her father´s pledge to no longer cheat them.Shields Down begins in the summer of 1649. The 30 years´ war was winding down, and Mauro and his small army could finally spend their days at Baric Castle again. A year has passed since Mauro and Resi´s marriage, yet the newlyweds still barely knew each other. Her strong will and his stoic nature made for an awkward courtship as they learned more about each other. Through it, Mauro could no longer deny that his complicated and unpredictable wife might be his perfect match after all. Love will bloom, and not just between the Barics. Romance will go beyond talking. The 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jillian Bald. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/151924/bk_acx0_151924_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
