The time invested.... At the young age of 12, Kaydee Harrison wanted an adventure, to dream of far off places, and a pen pal seemed the perfect way to do that. She started writing to a girl in England only to have her address passed on to a boy named Duncan, and that moment changed her life. Ten years later, sharing thoughts and dreams through pen and paper has brought them closer than ever. When Duncan sends Kaydee a scarf for her 22nd birthday and a card expressing his love for her, she´s happy but her hopes are shattered when he mentions his grade school friend Mara has come to visit him at Oxford. Is she really just a friend? Unexpected jealousy torments her thoughts. The chance taken.... With her father´s health failing and pressure mounting to run the family business, she needs to escape. Kaydee finds herself on a plane to see if the fantasy of Duncan can be turned into a reality. Could this one chance at love change her life? Or will it be the one decision that tears their friendship apart? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lisa Zimmerman. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/081990/bk_acx0_081990_sample.mp3.

Lady Caroline Duncan has always been an extremely proper young woman who does not step out of societal boundaries, ever. While awaiting an imminent proposal of marriage, Caroline decides she wants to play the sought-after daughter of a duke one last time. She wants a short season of parties in London before returning to her propriety-dictated life forever. She will dip her toe into the invigorating river of rule-breakers, just this once. It is at this precise moment that Lord Alexander Ravens declares his long-awaited suit for Caroline´s hand. Caroline is thrilled to have captured the heart of the handsome Alexander but is hesitant to deny herself a chance at a last adventure. Sharing her desires with Alexander, she is pleased when he grants her permission. With great reservation, he draws up a contract that allows a clandestine betrothal only known about by the intimate family. She can have her freedom within the edicts of proper society. Even the caveat that Ravens will promptly deal with all indiscretions over his knee barely gives Caroline pause. As the month progresses, Ravens and the rest of her family discover they are not happy with this new Caroline. When pulling her out of scrapes seems to be the new order of the day, Ravens begins to fear that the lessons delivered to her bare bottom aren´t enough to bring his beloved back into the folds of decorum. Is Caroline´s defiance of the tenets of polite society - and a month of frivolity - worth jeopardizing her fragile reputation and potentially risking a lifetime of loss? Will she estrange her rules-governed fiancé for a little bit of fun? 1. Language: English. Narrator: La Petite Mort. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/070537/bk_acx0_070537_sample.mp3.

Max Siegel started with none of the obvious advantages, yet again and again he built mutually beneficial partnerships - with peers, mentors, supervisors, and industry leaders - that took him to the heights of professional and personal achievement. He´s managed some of the world´s top recording artists, ballplayers, and race-car drivers and helped run some of the top organizations in sports and entertainment. He´s grown fragmented niche markets into best-selling audiences by tapping in to the universal hopes and passions that bring people together. Now he travels the country giving motivational speeches and inspiring professionals of all kinds, sharing his method for connecting with people, whatever their differences. The secret, Siegel says, is to know what makes others tick. For some, it´s financial security; for others, it´s respect, devotion to family, a creative calling, or a vision of a better world. He shows how to encourage people to share these hidden, all-important motivations and how to partner with them in the most powerful way there is: by finding the overlap between their goals and yours, so that together you can realize the dreams that make you tick. The nine universal rules outlined in Know What Makes Them Tick include: See Where You Want to Be, Not Where You Are; Find Your Ambassadors; and Show What´s in It for Them. Listeners will learn practical strategies for negotiating the challenges in every part of life, whether motivating colleagues to be more productive, finding a market for their product, uniting a divided family, or building a life of satisfaction in an unpredictable world. It´s an eye-opening guide to a unique and powerful approach that anyone can use. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Clifton Duncan.
