Paul Hannon moved to Tucker Springs for his girlfriend, but she´s left him with a house he can´t afford and a pantry full of useless gadgets. All Paul wants is to get back to normal, even if he´s not sure what that is anymore. When he wanders into Tucker Pawn for a gift to win her back, he meets El Rozal, pawn shop owner and all-around cynic. El Rozal doesn´t do relationships, especially not with clueless straight boys still pining for their ex. El may make his living dealing in castoffs, but that doesn´t apply to men. Still, when Paul starts clearing out his old life, pawning kitchen equipment he never wanted in the first place, El is drawn to Paul in spite of himself. Paul and El have nothing in common except a past full of disappointments. There´s no reason to believe the two of them could fit, but in El´s line of work, one man´s junk is another man´s treasure. When it comes to love, El and Paul may learn that secondhand doesn´t mean second best. Publisher´s note: This novel is part of the Tucker Springs series, which do not need to be heard in order. 1.

In a small North Carolina town, one man struggles to save his family after America loses a war that will send it back to the Dark Ages. Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real. Based upon a real weapon - the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) - which may already be in the hands of our enemies, it is a truly realistic look at the awesome power of a weapon that can destroy the entire United States, literally within one second. This book, set in a typical American town, is a dire warning of what might be our future and our end. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joe Barrett.

As one of the top paid defense-men in the NHL, my life has been a revolving door of beautiful women and no-strings-attached sex. Until Brynne. It was only supposed to be a one-night-fling. Hell, it wasn´t even supposed to be that. I knew the cardinal rule. Don´t touch the coach´s daughter. And for years, I kept my hands to myself. It wasn´t difficult considering Brynne Jacobs hates my guts. She can´t stand being in the same room as me - except for that one night. A night that left me hell bent on having more. Having all of her. But she took off. No text. No explanation. Not even a goodbye. Now she´s back, but she´s not alone. She´s got a kid. A kid with all-too-familiar blue eyes and dimples. Math might not be my strong suit, but a quick calculation and I know the baby is mine. And she´s delusional if she thinks I´m going to let her keep him from me. Damaged. Callous. Cold. Those are the words she uses to describe me. And I´ve never claimed to be anything more. But for her - for them - I want to be. I´ve been a fighter on the ice my entire life. Now, I´m fighting for the one thing I´ve spent my life running from - family. Author´s note: This is a stand-alone spin-off of the Amazon Top 25 best seller, Second Draft. You do not have to hear Second Draft first. No cliffhanger, and a guaranteed happily ever after. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Evelyn Marcail.

Witchcraft introduces us to a class of popular superstitions entirely different from those connected with Fairies. Fairies, water-horses, and kindred supernatural beings were distinct from the Evil Spirits that gave to witches their unhallowed powers. They could not be compelled or conjured by mortals to appear when wanted, or enter into contracts of service. The Powers of Darkness, on the other hand, were always at the service of their votaries, and, by means of charms and incantations known to the initiated, were made to lend their aid in any scheme of malevolence. A belief in magic widely, almost universally, prevails among the tribes of mankind, and the witchcraft of the Christian era, while it undoubtedly gained strength and character from mistaken interpretations of Scripture, owes many characteristics to the delusions of Pagan times. The Highland witches have of course many points in common with their sisters of the south, but comparatively there is little repulsive or horrible in their character. Tales regarding them make no mention of incubus and succubus, midnight meetings and dances with the devil, dead men´s fingers, and more of the horrible and awful, the ravings of poor women driven crazy by persecution and torture. Neither is there mention of their riding through the air on broomsticks, nor, like the witch of Endor, raising the dead. Their art was forbidden, and their powers came from the devil; but it does not appear under what paction, or that there was any paction, under which this power was to be got. It was in the name of the devil, and against the name of the Trinity, they set about their cantrips, but a knowledge of the necessary charms, and the courage to use them, seem to have been all that was requisite.

Now they’re in deep trouble, and before it’s over, Roman will have to ask himself the hardest question anyone can face: How far will you go to save your friends? 1. Language: English.
