A collection of four erotic stories with mixed and varied themes. 'The Maid' by Eva Hore: What should Sheila do when she sees her husband f**king the maid on the satin sheets of the marital bed? The fact that she's watching from the wardrobe, naked, while her boyfriend Marcus tries to grope her complicates the issue.... 'It Takes One to Spot One' by Jim Baker: On board a luxury cruise, Peter catches Suzanne's eye, but he seems to be perpetually surrounded by wealthy widows. She manages to lure him away over a game of roulette, and over dinner she checks out his story. 'Take a Breath' by Sommer Marsden: They may be at a business meeting, but all he wants to do is dominate this gorgeous woman with the whisky eyes. When she gives him the go-ahead, it’s all he can do to control his own lust before they get to the cloakroom.... 'Collision' by Alex de Kok: Jack runs right into Jenny - literally. He knocks her off her feet right beside the taxi rank. It's the least he can do to offer his ex-student a lift to her cottage; Jack's far too much of a gentleman to let her model good looks enter the equation.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Eda Hull.

From Shani Struthers, the best-selling author of The Venetian and The Eleventh Floor, comes the third in the This Haunted World series: Highgate. With sometimes harrowing scenes, this is her darkest novel yet and not for the faint-hearted!Highgate, perhaps the most famous cemetery in the world, is renowned for its Victorian Gothic splendour, famous residents, its vampire and, of course, ghosts....Lucy Klein, 42, is not only obsessed with Highgate, she works there too, organising tours for those with an interest in some of the finest Victorian funerary architecture in existence. Single, and on the shy side, she is nonetheless content with her life, or so she thinks. When she meets the enigmatic Zak Harborne, she realizes what she’s been missing and quickly falls in love. Suddenly, it is the business of living that interests her.1972, and Emma Matthews, a 19-year-old history student, also feels as though she’s on the outside. After visiting a derelict Highgate with a group of friends, she starts to feel a connection, a sense of meaning to her life, amongst the tombstones, the crosses, and the angels. Returning to Highgate over and over, she discovers both a paradise and a garden decidedly more savage. Grace Derby is just 11 when she encounters the gentleman, tall and with a tall hat, a long black coat and a cape about his shoulders. It is the 1850s and street urchins such as her are not accustomed to kindness from those belonging to the upper echelons. Proffering money for food, for her and her family, he asks nothing in return. Curious about the man with the kind blue eyes, she follows him one day…all the way to Highgate.For some, it seems, all roads lead to Highgate.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sheila Dearden.
