Owen Howard is starting to panic. What seemed to him to be an innocent gift has turned his entire world sideways.

What she tells him is a revelation which will change his entire life.How will Owen adjust? Will he embrace his destiny as a god´s chosen vessel? Or will he deny the pleasures of the flesh which are waiting for him on…Satyrday Night?~~~~~ Excerpt ~~~~~Isabel took a sip of wine, her eyes bright. This was how things were meant to be. Owen beside her as her friend. Soon to be in her bed as her lover.´´Oh!” Owen said, brightening. ´´It looks like Anaya and I might be going out sometime soon.”´´Really?” Isabel asked. She had to close her eyes briefly as a tide of jealousy surged through her, bitter as gall. How dare she try to steal my Owen away from me! She smiled at him, hiding her pain. ´´How did that happen?”Owen laughed. ´´God only knows. We were talking in the office this morning and something just...clicked...between us.” He opened his mouth as if to continue, but dropped his head, blushing as he took another bite of food.Below the table, a knuckle cracked as she clenched her fist. She raised her shaking hand and took another sip of wine.Filthy tramp! I know what she did. She pulled down her shirt and flashed her Indian tits at him and he couldn´t help himself.He´s mine, damn it. Mine!She took a last bite of rice, then reached for a piece of bread, sopping up the the juice on her plate.Two can play your game, Anaya.Without even thinking, she pulled the straps of her dress down, letting the top half of her garment fall to her waist. Unbound, her breasts sprang free.´´Isabel! What the hell are you doing?” Owen´s voice was a breathless shout of horror.She lounged back in h 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tweet Productions.

Owen Howard has had an interesting morning. After years of failure, he has scored with his boss and long-time crush, Anaya Ansari, banging each other in the office of Mama Juliana´s Pizzeria like something out of The Kama Sutra.But Anaya is not the only woman on whom Owen is having a strange, otherworldly effect. As Owen goes about his day, odd events swirl around him. His landlady and her daughter are being drawn into his wake, and what role will a former high-school flame and a mysterious older woman play during this hot and steamy…Satyrday Afternoon?~~~~~ Excerpt ~~~~~He pulled into the driveway of his first stop and rang the doorbell. Hearing nothing, he pulled open the screen door and knocked firmly. He heard hurrying steps from inside, and the door was pulled open abruptly.A handsome woman, nearly as tall as he was, stood in front of him. Around the same age as his mother, she wore an expensive skirt that dropped below her knees and a loose, comfortable blouse. Her lips were pressed together tightly as she looked at him.´´My husband´s asleep,” she said softly, ´´He´s the one who ordered the food. Come in, but please be quiet. I don´t want to wake him up.”Moving carefully, Owen entered the house, sighing in relief at the feel of the air-conditioning, comfortably pleasant on his skin. As he walked through the family room, a big-screen TV was showing a baseball game. On a couch, a fat man in a White Sox t-shirt was sitting, head slumped back, snores whistling from his slack mouth. He was unshaven, and a litter of beer cans sat on the table in front of him. He followed the woman into the kitchen, where she turned abruptly, frowning.´´His wallet´s in his pants, and I´m not going to wake the fat slob up,” she said, her deep voice harsh with dislike. ´´Come into my office and I´ll write you a check.”Owen followed her through a series of well-decorated rooms. His eyes fell to her sexy backside 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tweet Productions. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/129378/bk_acx0_129378_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Aristotle’s Poetics is the earliest-surviving work of dramatic theory and the first fully intact philosophical treatise to focus on literary theory. In it, the respected Greek sage offers an account of what he calls ´´poetry´´ (which the Greeks understood to literally mean ´´making´´), examining its ´´first principles´´ and identifying its genres and basic elements, including what he terms drama-comedy, tragedy, and the satyr play - as well as lyric poetry, epic poetry, and iambic pentameter, which he always associates with wit. 1.

It was bad enough that gods gambled with human souls, but Catherine Sharp´s soul just had to be won by the Greek goddess of Discord, Eris. As if working a dead-end tech support job didn´t suck the life out of her as it was. Now, Cat finds herself performing random tasks for the goddess in her free time. But when Coyote, the Native American trickster himself, claims to have won her own soul in Mayhem´s weekly poker game, Cat wants in on the action. With five sneaky gods upping the ante, Cat needs to find a way to collect the winning chips that could save her soul.

Ante up for the game of a lifetime! Billy Fox, a small-time gambler on a losing streak, has more than enough problems on his hands, owing too much money to some very impatient people. But when he rescues a blinded stranger from a swarm of bloodthirsty fairies, Billy’s life gets a lot more complicated.... Seems the stranger is actually a powerful local god who is involved in a high-stakes Florida poker tournament against various supernatural challengers. And with his eyes currently missing, he needs somebody to take his place at the gaming table. Before Billy knows it, he finds himself playing against the likes of an ancient Egyptian mummy, an unbearably seductive succubus, a mechanical man, an insect queen, and a cannibalistic beast-man. And not just cards are in play; magic, bloodshed, and cheating are not only expected, they’re encouraged. Everybody, including a sexy satyr-girl with her own cards up her sleeve, thinks that Billy is in way over his head. But Billy is a born gambler and, when the chips are down, he might just change his luck for good! Blind God´s Bluff is an outrageously addictive urban fantasy that will keep you listening until the very last hand. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adam Verner.

Turn the phone off, lock yourself away, and give your mind the holiday it deserves from the cares and stresses of this world when you read the latest volume of cult author Tom Slemen’s Haunted Liverpool. It is always an event when Tom publishes a new book and this one is definitely no exception. In this chilling volume of more than 30 chapters - with many chapters containing more than one story - you will meet the Faceless Bride of Lime Street and you will also be introduced to Anfield’s unknown ghostly woman before visiting the creepy establishment known as The Devil’s Arms, where everything is just too good to be true. You will not find the usual hackneyed stories of supernatural cliché in this volume; you will find extraordinary and sometimes surreal terror lurking that will play on your mind and possibly inspire a nightmare or two. You will be greeted by the terrifying Tickler - a bizarre entity which attempts to tickle his victims to death, and you will learn about the Yovar - a race of ancient beings who are said to be even more evil than the Devil. There are accounts of timeslips in this amazing book and tales of witchcraft, possession and nercomancy; furthermore, you will listen to two spine-chilling accounts of haunted sleepovers and an unearthly story about two strange deities who resurrected a heroin addict. Lose yourself in the uncanny story of the teenager who fell in love with a satyr, but peruse the chapter on omens of death at your own risk, and do not dwell too long on the unsettling accounts of the ghost that gets around - the Night Maiden - or she may pay you a visit. These are just some of the terrors you will encounter in Haunted Liverpool 30.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nigel Peever.
