Springtime in Styria. And that means war. There have been nineteen years of blood. The ruthless Grand Duke Orso is locked in a vicious struggle with the squabbling League of Eight, and between them they have bled the land white. While armies march, heads roll and cities burn, behind the scenes bankers, priests and older, darker powers play a deadly game to choose who will be king. War may be hell but for Monza Murcatto, the Snake of Talins, the most feared and famous mercenary in Duke Orso's employ, it's a damn good way of making money too. Her victories have made her popular - a shade too popular for her employer's taste. Betrayed, thrown down a mountain and left for dead, Murcatto's reward is a broken body and a burning hunger for vengeance. Whatever the cost, seven men must die. 1. Language: English.

A man only gets one chance to find his Aphrodite...but what if she finds him first? When archeologist Dr. Stewart Jones, a duke, goes missing and is feared dead while searching for an important Greek artifact, explorer Harold Tennison, Earl of Everly, is pressed into service by fellow members of the Royal Society to find him. Since Harry has already planned an expedition to the Cyclades to search for rare birds and flowers, he sets off for the Aegean to begin his quest. On his last visit to Delos, Harry was blessed with a visit from a young woman - his very own version of Aphrodite rising from the sea to regard him with an arched eyebrow and a simple question that left him so discombobulated, he could barely speak. Born of a Mykonian mother and a British duke, Lady Estelle isn't particularly comfortable in either world. With her father's recent disappearance and no prospects for marriage, Stella may end up stranded on Mykonos. She spends her days assisting her uncle in his hunt for Greek treasures he can sell to visiting Europeans. At night, she remembers the bespectacled earl who nearly broke her foot during a waltz back in London. When Harry arrives on Mykonos to begin his hunt for the duke and to resume his own research, he'll have to learn far more about mythology, antiquities, and Greek goddesses than he bargained for. The search may be worth it, though, but only if he ends up with his very own Aphrodite in The Epiphany of an Explorer. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Troughton.

David Churchill's The Leopards of Normandy trilogy continues with Duke, as William of Normandy inherits his father's title and assumes command of his lands. Churchill's style brings to mind the vibrancy of Conn Iggulden and will enthrall fans of Bernard Cornwell and Ben Kane. William the Bastard, boy Duke of Normandy, is alone in a world filled with enemies. His father, Robert, is dead, and the men chosen to protect William are falling prey, one by one, to a conspiracy controlled and manipulated by a man who has spent a lifetime being mocked and ridiculed but now burns with the need to be feared and obeyed. In England two women, equally matched in their beauty, strength and limitless ambition, seek power through their sons. They wield no swords and command no armies, but their struggles for the crown are as bitter as any war. And between them stands Godwin, Earl of Wessex, seeking to build a dynasty that will outlast them all. One day William will join the struggle for dominion over England. But for now he must fight just to survive, to reach manhood and then to impose his will on those who would oppose him. Including the young woman he wants for his wife. 1. Language: English.

What does it say when vampires aren't the thing most feared in the night? Nina Rodriguez has become the most lethal weapon in the world. A blood mage trained by werewolves to hunt and kill with no remorse, no morality, and no hesitation. All that matters is the thrill of the kill, and the danger that comes with it. When she's given orders to infiltrate and observe the vampire court, she couldn't turn it down anymore than she could cease to breathe. The sweet taste of danger was enough to tempt her, and that only doubles when the vampire king chooses her as his own personal thrall. If he finds out she's a hunter and not the sweet, innocent thrall he thinks her to be, it's off with her head. She should be playing it safe, keeping her head down, but the call of the hunt is too strong. She can't stop herself, she has to kill. Yet these vampires are not what they seem. The more she gets to know them, the more she questions why she's here. She can fight off any enemy, but no one prepared her to fight for her soul. 1. Language: English.
