Morgan Polley is an empath who helps people. When she meets Tor and his family of dying dragons, she wants to assist them in finding their mates. Except for Tor's. She wants to keep him and make lots of babies with the big sexy man. It's getting hard to remember her objective when her hormones go out of whack around him. Tor Drachen is one of a handful of dragons left on earth, dying due to their mates being targeted and killed before finding each other. He's been told Morgan Polley will be a mate to one of his kind, but who? He's having a hard time keeping her at bay and the thought of getting her pregnant to start a family is a very tempting idea. A breed of evil dragons is after Morgan, but Tor promises to protect her to the very end. Even if it turns out that she's one of his brothers' mates. If he can't find a way to cheat fate, he will walk away without his heart. Note to listeners: This is a hot, action-packed, fun adventure of dragon love, babies, sassy women, dirty-talking alpha males, and enough heat it will make you take a couple of cold showers. Don't say I didn't warn you. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joshua Macrae. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/083054/bk_acx0_083054_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
London, 1822 William Drake has lived among thieves, bastards and beggars all his life, doing what's necessary to survive. As a young orphan, that included looking after his best friend, Jack Morgan. But as they grew older, Jack took the honest path, leaving Will behind to fend for himself the only ways he knows how. When an unsavory errand for his employer brings Jack back to London's underbelly, he needs Will's help. It's there, among the alleys they ran through as children, that the love he's always felt for Will returns. As their nights together grow hotter, Will discovers something new about his old friend - Jack's need to serve extends into the bedchamber. Will has never fully abandoned his dream of escaping London with Jack. But what could the Duke's driver want with a dishonest cheat like him, beyond a bit of rough sex? It takes the gamble of Will's life to find out if he can win Jack's heart... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Matthew Holland.

The Gilded Age and the dawn of the 20th century are often remembered as an era full of monopolies, trusts, and economic giants in heavy industries like oil and steel. Men like Andrew Carnegie built empires like Carnegie Steel, and financiers like J.P. Morgan merged and consolidated them. The era also made names like Astor, Cooke, and Vanderbilt instantly recognizable across the globe. Over time, the unfathomable wealth generated by the businesses made the individuals on top incredibly rich, and that in turn led to immense criticism and an infamous epithet used to rail against them: robber barons. Dozens of men were called "robber barons", but none were as notorious or rich as John D. Rockefeller, who co-founded Standard Oil and turned it into the first real trust in the United States. Rockefeller had been groomed ambitiously by a huckster father nicknamed "Devil Bill", who was just as willing to cheat his son as an unsuspecting public, and John certainly chased his dreams of living long and large. Rockefeller forged his empire in the first few decades of his life and nearly worked himself to death by the time he was 50, which helped compel him to retire for the last several decades of his life. At one point, Rockefeller's wealth was worth more than 1.5% of the entire country's gross domestic product, and by adjusting for inflation, he is arguably the richest man in American history if not world history. Rockefeller was often demonized for being greedy, and there's no question that he was a capitalist par excellence, if not an outright proponent of Social Darwinism. Rockefeller often asserted that growing a business "is merely a survival of the fittest," and he even bragged, "I have ways of making money that you know nothing of." To charges that he was making his riches off the backbreaking work of others, Rockefeller admitted, "I would rather earn 1% off 100 people's efforts than 100% of my own efforts." 1.
