To her legions of adoring suitors, it comes as quite a shock when Lady Sophie York rejects an offer of marriage from the dashing, rakish Patrick Foakes in favor of amiable but dull Braddon Chatwin. He may be an earl, but it is Patrick´s stolen kisses that sear her lips. When Patrick, in disguise, scales a ladder to retrieve his friend´s fiancée, he never expects the elopement to be his own. Neither does Sophie, Braddon, or the rest of the tattling ton . One hasty wedding later, the passionate innocent and the sophisticated rogue play out their own intricate dance as Sophie masters what it takes to keep a man where he belongs. And Patrick learns the ultimate lesson in love.

(2016/Sundazed) 12 tracks - Recorded between 1965 and 1968! Female Kick-Ass Garage stuff! Colored Vinyl! The archetype for the ´60s-era girl group was etched indelibly into stone, like a commandment: three pretty girls with matching outfits and bouffant hairdos would sing, with musical backing supplied by a bunch of guys standing in the shadows. The Quatro sisters shattered that archetype forever with the Pleasure Seekers, an all-girl teenage rock & roll group who played all the instruments themselves and were fully capable of wiping the stage with any male band that crossed their path. The Quatro girls had been brought up in a musically-minded family, nurtured with classical piano and vocal lessons. As Patti recalls, ´´By 1964, I had been taking guitar lessons, hanging with musicians in the local music scene. We had seen a Beatles concert, and I was quite dazed and focused at the event, watching the audience cry and scream out of control. It was my epiphany moment, and I was determined to start an all-girl band.´´ Shortly thereafter, the first lineup of the Pleasure Seekers fell into place with Patti Quatro (lead guitar), Marylou Ball (rhythm guitar), Suzi Quatro (bass), Diane Baker (keyboards), Nan Ball (drums) and vocal duties shared by all. Around the fall of 1965 the girls dared local teen club manager Dave Leone to give them a slot at his popular Hideout Club, claiming they were better than most of the other live bands there. ´´You´re on,´´ responded Leone, ´´in two weeks. Three songs!´´ The Pleasure Seekers were soon a popular feature at the club, honing their skills alongside the likes of the Rationals, the Amboy Dukes and Bob Seger & the Last Heard. ´´In the beginning, there was a lot of skepticism,´´ remembers Patti, ´´especially the first night. The boys crowded the stage, the girlfriends pulled them away with laughter, as if ´Girls playing?! Yeah, right!´ It was always satisfying to see them be silenced quickly when we began playing. We grew used to seeing slack jaws open in surprise.´´ Next they were asked by Leone to record and release a single on his Hideout label. That March 1966 release is now regarded as the greatest ´´girl garage´´ single of the era: ´´Never Thought You´d Leave Me´´ b/w ´´What a Way to Die.´´ ´´Dave brought lyrics, and we put the songs together quickly,´´ remembers Patti. ´´We felt very legit in making this record at a small local studio. Nan was the sexy voice on ´Never Thought You´d Leave Me,´ and there was lots of laughter as Marylou added the screams on ´What a Way to Die.´´´ Suzi Quatro remembers the recording as ´´very important and memorable.´´ The Pleasure Seekers were soon in demand in the region, playing teen clubs, parties, colleges and local TV shows. After a series of lineup changes, the band brought in older Quatro sister Arlene (keyboards) and Darline Arnone (drums), the first female drummer sponsored by Slingerland Drums. A short time later, Pami Benford joined-up on guitar and bass (that lineup lasting through most of 1968). It was a very versatile group, remembers Patti, with Pami and Suzi sharing bass, and Pami and I sharing lead and rhythm guitars. The gender bias was my hot button, recalls Arlene, along with confidence in our musical abilities. With women musicians dismissed as a novelty, I delighted in watching the audience go from skepticism/ridicule, to shock/cheers. For Suzi, though, this period was where she learned her craft: I considered myself a musician, and didnt really think about gender too much. Two tracks recorded in 1967, but unissued at the time, Elevator Express and Gotta Get Away, highlight the bands growing musical maturity since their Hideout debut. Detroit was the best learning ground in the world for musicians, recalls Suzi, with an amazing energy and creativity that is in every successful artist that has come out of the city. We were actually one of the earliest Detroit bands traveling the country, adds Patti. Everyone wanted this unusual allgirl band who rocked an entire Motown revue (changing instruments and singers throughout) and an entire Sgt. Pepper/Magical Mystery Tour revue, as well as covering English bands, acid rock and everything in between. Signing up with Associated Booking Corporation, the group began making the transition from local to national act. Producer Dick Corby caught the Pleasure Seekers at Trude Hellers in New Yorks Greenwich Village and signed them to a Mercury Records deal in early 1968. To keep rein on their

Rob: I am a captive in this strange dark erotic castle, captive but not a prisoner. My overpowering attraction to Garth, the sexiest lad I´ve ever met, is what is holding me here, the darkly handsome Dolf is another master I wouldn´t mind serving...also there are mysteries here to be solved, lessons to be learned, kisses to steal and hearts to break, or so Mr. Winters, the butler, whispered to me as he undressed me... I am laying in a huge ornate golden bed with a man asleep next to me, a stranger who had his way with me all night. He whispered he loved me before he fell into exhausted post orgasmic slumber...I am not sure if it is morning yet, the mask he had me wear is still on my eyes, so all I see is black...but as I am picturing memories of how I came to be here in this castle of pleasures, the darkness is fine, like watching a movie of my strange adventures, starting with.... ...the first morning I arrived, I was so awed by the grandeur of the palace, stunned by the splendor as I was led though the vast historical halls, rooms and corridors.... I felt like I was entering a fairytale, and I love fairytales. 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Talbot. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/079483/bk_acx0_079483_sample.mp3.

This story is a gem representing the delightful stories from the Indian subcontinent which capture the simple essence of everyday life in rural/urban India. The simple pleasures of life indicate a time gone by, before the advent of cellphones and Facebook, a time which almost stood still, a time where children could revel in the rain, make paper boats and race them down a drain, play marbles, and generally pass time. The once idyllic life almost seems too slow to bear, and hence is fascinating to watch unfurl as we listen to the story. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Hawkes.
