Alana Morgan has never truly belonged anywhere. After her parents died when she was 15, she´d been sent to live in the UK with an aunt and uncle who had no time for her. Now, she´s studying at a university in Wales with no close friends and only her well-loved fantasy books for company. But, when she agrees to a rare night out, she meets a handsome, red-haired Welshman with a dangerous secret that will change her life forever. When Llewellyn Couch kidnaps Alana and takes her to his manor, she discovers that there is more to this mystical country than she ever dreamed. Llewellyn Couch knows he must find a mate. It was his father´s last wish before he passed and, with his clan and family line quickly dying out, it is essential he find a girl healthy enough to carry on their traditions. When he sees Alana Morgan, a pretty, young American at a club, he is immediately smitten. Once he speaks to her, he is certain that she is the only girl he could mark as his mate. But, she is what his family calls an Arefol, a non-shifter. No Dragon has ever mated an Arefol before. And, many in the clan believe it to be treason to do so. Will Llewellyn be able to overcome his family´s objections and claim his chosen mate? And, more importantly, will the girl he has chosen freely choose him? 1. Language: English.

Rescuing the man tied to a tree seemed like a rational decision. Claire is a smart, capable bookkeeper who happens to work at a martial arts academy. She has no idea the door she walked through to save the bound man would leave her trapped in 13th-century Scotland. She is unable to regret the night of passion shared with Ian, even though it happened with the threat of death just outside the door. She pretends to be content with Ian´s friendship, knowing his people must come first. Compelled by honor and tormented by desire, is being his woman, while he marries another, enough? Ian, Laird of the Draig Clan, is a man trapped by fate. Forced by necessity to marry a woman he has never met, her dowry is essential to save his clan. However, he is in love with the woman who saved his life and then spent one night in his arms. Duty prevents Ian from being able to marry Claire as custom, honor, and his heart demand. Drawn to her, believing they share the same desires and dreams in life, he finally offers her the only option available, a place by his side and in his bed. Claire and Ian are bound together in love and then ripped apart by deception and a plot to destroy the Draig clan. Facing the final battle alone and unarmed, Claire saves them all. The ultimate challenge is forgiving Ian for sending her away. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lisa Zimmerman. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/091917/bk_acx0_091917_sample.mp3.

Magic is fading... and the ways of Man are driving the Old Ones to the West, beyond the ken of humankind. The ancient groves are being destroyed, and if nothing is done, Ireland will lose its essential mystic core. The prophecies of long ago have foretold a way to prevent this horror, and it is the Sevenwaters clan that the spirits of Eire look to for salvation. They are a family bound into the lifeblood of the land, and their promise to preserve the magic has been the cause of great joy to them... as well as great sorrow. It is up to Fianne, daughter of Niamh, the lost sister of Sevenwaters, to solve the riddles of power. A shy child of a reclusive sorcerer, she finds that her way is hard: She is the granddaughter of the wicked sorceress Oonagh, who has emerged from the shadows and seeks to destroy all that Sevenwaters has striven for. Oonagh will use Fianne most cruelly to accomplish her ends, and stops at nothing to see her will done. Will Fianne be strong enough to battle this evil and save those she has come to love? 1.

He was one of history´s greatest conquerors, and in his day, his very name caused terror. His forces burned great cities to the ground, and killed on a scale that can only be called ´´genocide.´´ But there was also another side to Genghis Khan, one that most people have never considered. He modernized the laws and customs of his people and unified much of Eurasia, spreading the trade and cultural influence of the Silk Road. For these accomplishments - and not for his atrocities - he is still celebrated as the greatest hero of the Mongolian people. In this essential new biography, Alexander Kennedy examines Genghis Khan in all his facets: conqueror and diplomat, warlord and lawgiver, father and son, butcher and hero. We can see the rise of Temüjin, from the kidnapped son of a clan chief to the ruler of a united Mongol horde, the ´´Genghis Khan.´´ But we also see the human cost of his quest - the fallen cities of Bukhara and Samarkand, the devastation of northern China, and the shaky empire he left behind. Through piercing analysis, we can gradually separate fact from fiction until we at last glimpse the real Genghis Khan in all his terrible glory. ´´Be of one mind and one faith, that you may conquer your enemies and lead long and happy lives.´´ - Genghis Khan 1.

A compelling drama and a merciless scrutiny of a newly monied upper-middle-class family at the turn of the 20th century, The Forsyte Saga has a sumptuous range of characters:Soames, he of the ‘perpetual sniff’; Old Jolyon, ‘typifying the essential individualism born in the Briton’; the sensuous Bosinney with ‘an air as if he did not quite know on which side his bread was buttered’; Young Jolyon, the free thinker; and, of course, the sexually alluring and impenetrable Irene, catalyst for much dissension within the clan. The Forsytes believe they will live forever, but the unrelenting, imperturbable façade slowly begins to crumble as Aunt Ann, the oldest Forsyte ever, is interred in the family tomb at the end of this first volume. The author makes his presence and opinion felt with beautifully subtle pinpricks of wit, which leave one in no doubt what he thought of the accumulation of wealth and property, which typified the materialistic Victorian psyche, at the expense of sensitivity and freedom. As in The Dark Flower (also published by Assembled Stories), Galsworthy demonstrates a fundamental understanding of hidden sexual currents and their ability to change our destinies. If you have enjoyed The Forsyte Saga on television in the past, you will be familiar with this engrossing story; if not, prepare to be completely captivated and engaged by one of the best tales ever told. About Assembled Stories: Over the years the national press have reviewed Assembled Stories titles as ´´excellent´´, ´´remarkable´´, ´´entrancing´´, ´´superb´´, ´´agic for sure´´, ´´masterly´´, ´´wonderful´´, ´´a class act´´, and ´´a splendid example of audio at its best´´. 1.
