From the carcass of a Washington, D.C. car bomb explosion, the CIA launches an investigation into the mysterious events leading to the assassination of Chilean dissident and infamous casanova, Eduardo Allesandro Palmero. As CIA investigator Alfred Dobbs rummages through the evidence, Palmero´s mysterious life, from heir to the Chilean oligarchy to a fist-raising Marxist and trickster in disguise, comes to light.

Soon enough, Marie, Frederika and Anne are making headline news as part of a South American terror squad. But when Eduardo´s carpet of lies begins to unravel, thread by thread, and his obsession-inducing sexual offensive comes to a slow and subtle halt, his very fate is at stake.

Positive thinking helps personal growth in different ways. Thinking positive enables a person to strive for things that demand more of them. It also allows a person to bounce back when something negative or unexpected happens. People with a positive outlook on life look at challenges as a way to stretch themselves or as a way to venture outside of the box. Thinking positive means you are not afraid to embrace new situations or adventures, and failure is not feared. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Aurora Goldstein.

During the 1840s, America and many countries all over the world began to embrace a new mode of thinking. Countless newspapers began to report individuals who could communicate with the dead. Rather than feared as something dark and unnatural as it once had, many individuals all over the globe began to embrace this new wave of spiritualism. Seances were not only accepted but became quite a common pastime in American households. In 1886 a new device hit the scene, guaranteed to allow just about anyone to communicate with spirits who had passed on. The talking board was thus introduced to everyday society. Some believed the original Ouija board was a genuine channel in which to communicate with the dead. Others were skeptical - but enjoyed playing with talking boards nonetheless. Everything changed, however, when the film The Exorcist hit theaters in 1973. For the first time, the Ouija board was not seen as an innocent toy or device, but as a means to channel Satan himself. Seemingly overnight, the Ouija board was considered an evil object - a cursed object. To this day, the Ouija board continues to produce mixed feelings in people all around the world. But what most people fail to realize is that these historic talking boards are not the only objects in existence that are believed to be evil or cursed. In fact, there are many objects scattered around the globe that leave a trail of terror, paranoia, and even death in their wake. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gene Blake.

After one particularly long night, she broke down in tears and admitted to me how much she hated spreading her legs for me and of how much she missed her beloved chambermaid. After she finished her tale of woe, her eyes glassy with tears, I took her beautiful face into my hands and gently brought her lips to mine. My kisses were gentle at first because at the moment, I thought I was overstepping my boundaries and feared that I would scare her off and never see her again. But she responded in kind, returning my embrace with deeper kisses as her hands began to explore my body. Slowly, she disrobed me.Warning: This audiobook contains steamy romance scenes and is suitable for 18-plus only. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Juliana Alexander.

My father built one of the biggest MCs around only to have it all fall apart when he was arrested. The once-feared Brody name was now just a label used to identify us as troublemakers. But while my siblings wanted to change that reputation, I was ready to embrace it. I was even considering taking over Dad´s throne and rebuilding it all from scratch. But that was before Beth entered my life and completely changed everything I thought I knew. She was a pure and innocent Amish girl, anxious for new experiences and adventures. And she had somehow captured my heart. Once I fell for her, there was no going back. Even when danger seemed to come from every direction. Even with the odds stacked impossibly against us. I knew I had to save Beth, because she was the only one who could save me. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Eric London, Savannah Peachwood.

In our day, much as in Chadwick´s, Pentecost is mostly misunderstood by the Church at large and is therefore either feared or turned into a circus. In both cases the Spirit of God is either lacking or completely grieved. This is evident in the absence of power; power to embrace and live a holy life in spite of the deprivations of the professing church and the pollutions of the world around us. ´´The Christian religion is hopeless without the Holy Ghost´´ and yet the majority of the Church seems to be content without Him and His tangible presence. In ´´The Way to Pentecost´´, Chadwick sets forth the Biblical presentation of Pentecost, the giving of the Holy Ghost, and what that means for Christians throughout the Church Age. Christians today are in as much, or greater, need of a fresh presentation of Pentecost as ever. Lack of power and victory are the inevitable witnesses to this fact. The Way to Pentecost is a call for the true Church of Jesus Christ to rise up and take possession of the promise of the Father. ´´The only power that is adequate for Christian life and Christian work is the power of the Holy Ghost.´´ 1.
