Jason is single and has been for all of his 32 years. It´s depressing. But not as depressing as being told by his mother that he looks like Humpty Dumpty - after the accident. With a face that not even his own mother can love, it´s hardly surprising that he´ll try anything to get a woman to go out with him, even if it´s only for a single date. With little interest in anything other than his quest for a woman and a nice bit of cod and chips, Jason needs to think outside the box if he´s going to find someone who´ll give him a chance. Along with Barry - his best mate - Jason comes up with the only thing he thinks will work: dating a blind woman. However, to do that, he needs to pretend he´s blind himself, which is a lot harder than you might think…especially when guide dogs are so hard to come by. Eventually Jason´s efforts pay off and he meets Emma, a pretty professional with a host of friends. When he takes her out, they instantly hit it off. But will Jason be able to fool both Emma and her best friend Jerry into thinking he´s blind? With everything to play for, Jason faces the biggest challenge of his life, and nobody - especially not him - can see how it´ll all turn out. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chris Dabbs.

From the ´´wickedly entertaining´´ (USA Today) Curtis Sittenfeld, New York Times best-selling author of Prep and American Wife, comes a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice. Equal parts homage to Jane Austen and bold literary experiment, Eligible is a brilliant, playful, and delicious saga for the 21st century. This version of the Bennet family - and Mr. Darcy - is one that you have and haven´t met before: Liz is a magazine writer in her late 30s who, like her yoga instructor older sister, Jane, lives in New York City. When their father has a health scare, they return to their childhood home in Cincinnati to help - and discover that the sprawling Tudor they grew up in is crumbling, and the family is in disarray. Youngest sisters Kitty and Lydia are too busy with their CrossFit workouts and paleo diets to get jobs. Mary, the middle sister, is earning her third online master´s degree and barely leaves her room except for those mysterious Tuesday-night outings she won´t discuss. And Mrs. Bennet has one thing on her mind: how to marry off her daughters, especially as Jane´s 40th birthday fast approaches. Enter Chip Bingley, a handsome new-in-town doctor who recently appeared on the juggernaut reality TV dating show Eligible. At a Fourth of July barbecue, Chip takes an immediate interest in Jane, but Chip´s friend, neurosurgeon Fitzwilliam Darcy, reveals himself to Liz to be much less charming.... And yet, first impressions can be deceiving. Wonderfully tender and hilariously funny, Eligible both honors and updates Austen´s beloved tale. Tackling gender, class, courtship, and family, Sittenfeld reaffirms herself as one of the most dazzling authors writing today. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cassandra Campbell.

Still, Mark can´t shake his belief that their romance is temporary-until he´s unexpectedly faced with the danger that he might lose Trevor for good.

In Deadly Stakes, police-academy-trained former reporter Ali Reynolds is contacted to investigate the grisly murder of a gold-digging divorcee on behalf of a woman accused of the crime. Lynn Martinson is dating the dead woman´s ex-husband, and she and her boyfriend, Chip Ralston, have been charged. Ali is simultaneously drawn to the case of A. J. Sanders, a frightened teen with secrets of his own. He´s the first to find the body in the Camp Verde desert when he goes to retrieve a mysterious buried box hidden by his absent father - a box that turns out to be filled with hundreds of thousands of dollars in poker chips. When the body of an ex-con is discovered near the first crime scene, Ali struggles to determine if A.J. and Lynn´s cases are related. Though her friends in the police department grow increasingly irritated by her involvement with the cases, Ali must stop a deadly killer from claiming another victim - before she herself is lost in this game of deadly stakes. 1.

She drives him crazy...in more ways than one. Every time Leah Holt encounters Quantum Production’s chief counsel, Emmett Burke, the only thing she can think of is how much she wants to lick him. Everywhere. She’s never had that kind of reaction to a man, and the fact that he’s a much-older colleague makes her out-of-control attraction to him far more complicated than it should be. Every day, she brings a new legal question to Emmett, hoping to catch his attention and make him see her as a grown woman who wants him desperately. She walks a fine line in trying to remain professional as the assistant to superstar Marlowe Sloane while lusting after Marlowe’s sexy attorney. To Emmett, Leah is a fly buzzing around his head who can’t be swatted away. She’s always there, looking at him, asking him legal questions that have nothing to do with his specialty in entertainment law and generally driving him mad with her overt sexiness and sassy mouth. He wants to toss her over his desk and run the sass right out of her, which is hardly the way a professional who loves his job should behave in the office - especially with a young, fresh, sexy colleague. As the author of the company’s policy on inter-office dating, he’s painfully aware of all the reasons he should stay far, far away from her and the tantalizing temptation she represents. Then Leah gets her chance to step up for Emmett, to help him through an unfortunate ´´accident” and to show him she’s much more than just a smart mouth and a sexy body. When she realizes she has genuine feelings for him - and that those feelings are returned - she wonders if he will take a chance on her or continue to hold her at arm’s length. Slowly but surely, she chips away at his resistance, and he begins to crave more of her. But Emmett knows if he’s going to let her in, he has to let her all the way in. What will she think when he introduces her to his l... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Maxine Mitchell, Aiden Snow. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/124368/bk_acx0_124368_sample.mp3.
