Kit Runyon isn´t looking for a man to keep - she´s happy with the occasional one-night stand and no strings. Making sure her family´s electronics repair shop is profitable enough to support three generations is her main focus. But when Brian Hendricks walks into the store, one look, one word, and she knows he´s not wired like any man she´s ever met before.... Brian´s attracted to Kit´s strength and no-nonsense attitude, but he´s tired of the one-and-done dating scene. He´s ready to settle down with the right woman, even if that means he´ll have to play things slow and stay out of her bed to show her there´s more to love than just mind-blowing sex. But at this rate he´s liable to short all the circuits.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Pippa Jayne. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/inbl/000133/bk_inbl_000133_sample.mp3.

When two people have walked through fire, can love bring the healing and help they need? Spurned by love, Lady Margaux Ashbury has no use for the other eligible gentlemen of London. Despite her beauty, her sharp tongue soon earns her a reputation as a dragon. Convincing her parents to let her retreat to their Scottish estate, a home for abandoned young women, Margaux feels she can do something meaningful with her life. At their wits´ end, her parents believe a few months in seclusion will teach her to appreciate her privileged existence, and accept the next gentleman of worth who offers for her. Margaux has no plans to yield. But neither she nor her parents bargain for the proximity of the gorgeous, blue-eyed Scotsman on the neighboring estate. Gavin Craig, content with his life as a country doctor, is unexpectedly thrust into the world of aristocratic society after the accidental deaths of his brother and nephews. With all the duties his new title entails, and his adoption of three orphans, Gavin desperately needs a wife. She should preferably be a lady, trained since birth to manage a noble house, servants and family. His former disdain for a marriage of convenience has been rapidly overcome by the colossal task of learning to run a large Scottish barony. One lovely candidate is right next door; except that she´s inexplicably determined to be a spinster. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Greg Patmore.

When a vicious alcoholic dies in a suspicious house fire, Rev. Olympia Brown and Father Jim Sawicki stretch the boundaries of their religious vows to prove his death is accidental and not murder. But evidence to the contrary is mounting and the curious clerical twosome have little time to learn the truth and prevent the daughter that the man abused for years from ending her own life. Olympia and Jim confront unspeakable realities of incest, domestic violence and dark family secrets set against a tapestry of misconstrued Catholic dogma and the Irish culture of silence as the two colleagues struggle to untangle a hideous web of shame, guilt, and broken lives. And through all of this, Olympia continues with the restoration of her antique home in Southeastern Massachusetts. Miss Winslow, Olympia’s nosy and outspoken house-ghost, begins to reveal more of her own story. Olympia’s search for her lost daughter takes a curious turn. Frederick Watkins, Olympia’s gentleman friend from England is planning a purposeful return visit. And Father Jim Sawicki, Olympia’s partner in amateur sleuthing and best friend forever, struggles with issues from his own tragic past. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lois Johnson.
