She was a professional beauty, with a face and body that every woman envied and every man desired. Then an anonymous madman destroyed that beauty, and private investigator Paul Murdock was hired to find out why. Murdock had first encountered the dark side of humanity on the battlefields of Vietnam, where an enemy bullet robbed him of the use of his legs. Now confined to a wheelchair, Murdock's latest case takes him to a different kind of war zone: the sleazy, unglamorous side of Hollywood, where souls are traded and lives destroyed in the unrelenting drive for fame. Murdock has never been dazzled by celebrity, and a town built on make-believe is about to receive a lesson in Murdock's brand of .45 caliber reality. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Finfrock.

On the surface, Taryn Pearson's life seems perfect. No one sees how her past casts shadows over her present or senses the rage she fights every day to conceal. Total self-control has kept her safe, but it's also left her isolated. Before transitioning from graduate school to her career as a lab assistant, her aunt urges her to be bold, expand her boundaries, and try something new. Photographer Rafael de le Sente escaped the barrio and demons of his youth, but he can't outrun the consequences of his adult actions. Rarely able to separate work from pleasure, his licentious leanings finally cost him his biggest client. Rafael deigns to take on Taryn as a student for a price, proving his professionalism in the process. Almost immediately, he knows he's doomed. Here is a woman who keeps his interest and tempts his libido. Every lesson further challenges her discipline and his control. Taryn may be just what he's always longed for - an equal - but letting someone in so closely challenges his nature. Rafael never wanted love, Taryn never desired a lover, but they'll need each other to finally bring their lives in to focus. Frame by frame, they move closer to accepting the pull between them. Every camera flash drags more of their pasts into the light, bringing them closer to a photo finish with fate. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tonya Cornelisse.

A.M. Madden and Joanne Schwehm are BRINGING ROMANCE BACK! Scoring Mr. Romeo is absolutely BURSTING with heart pounding, blood pumping, skin tingling ROMANCE! (Shayna's Spicy Reads) Here's a tip: Never underestimate romance. Falling in love was the furthest thing from my mind. I'm a single mother raising a strong little boy, and he is my one and only priority. The universe felt otherwise, sending me - actually, my son's soccer ball - hurdling toward a stunningly handsome, perfect man who said all the right things. He made it hard to ignore how much I missed romance. In the past, when I met a man, he ran as soon as he heard I'm a widow with a child. Not this guy. No, he fell in love with my son, and in turn my son fell in love with him. But it was hard to believe he felt the same about me. My job was to be the strong one - to protect our hearts from sweet dreams that never lasted. *** Women told me I was a master of romance. They were right. I knew how to sweep a woman off her feet, to make her feel special and good in all the right places. I wasn't a saint. I've had my share of one-night stands. They served their purpose, giving me a steady diet of romance without the hassle of commitment. Then, one day at the park, a soccer ball came careening toward my head, and my life changed in an instant. I never imagined that true love would come in the form of a five-year-old boy. And then I got to know his mother: She was strong, independent, drop-dead gorgeous, and someone I desired - I just needed to prove it to her. She called me Mr. Romeo, and that was fine with me. Lesson learned: Love always trumps everything. Scoring Mr. Romeo is a contemporary romance stand-alone novel meant for listeners who are 18+ due to mature content. 1. Language: English.

The book will inspire, challenge, unsettle, and in places annoy and even infuriate its readers, but it will succeed in helping them think about how high quality teaching can contribute to high quality learning."John Kirby, Queens University, Ontario, Canada"For those teaching in schools and universities this book provides a framework that can be used to guide teaching from thinking about what a program, topic, lesson or lecture should be about, to the execution of the teaching and reflection on the outcomes.
