Autobiography. Sketch of Life and Labors of Miss Catherine S. Lawrence, Who in Early Life Distinguished Herself as a Bitter Opponent of Slavery and Intemperance: Catherine S. Lawrence
In all his years in the army, Lord Gabriel Winters never once would have described an opponent as beautiful. But when he finds himself staring down the barrel of Miss Amelia Watson’s pistol, it’s the only word that comes to mind. Despite her clear distrust of him - and not to mention his own determination to avoid English women at all costs - Gabriel is more than intrigued by his friend’s bold neighbor. Amelia has plenty of reasons to distrust strangers, and the broad-shouldered, devilishly handsome viscount deserves no exception. But when he challenges her to lay down her weapon and learn to fight in a new way, she finds herself capitulating. He may be a scoundrel, but he’s also the first person in years to look at her without the blasted pity she hates so much. Though the lessons start out innocently enough, the heady pull of attraction soon gets in the way. They’re as incompatible as water and gunpowder, so why is she suddenly looking forward to the thought of being...Scandalized by a Scoundrel? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Laurel Schroeder.

In the spring of 2015, Americans were enthused about the upcoming 2016 Presidential Election. The election promised two new major party candidates and the prospect of a serious, constructive debate over Americas issues, both foreign and domestic. The campaign started with Secretary Hillary Clintons spontaneous road trip to Iowa in a Scooby Doo van in April 2015. Not only did Secretary Clinton meet many ordinary Americans, she learned about self-serve gasoline and the delectable beauty of McDonalds Quarter Pounder with Cheese. The Road Trip, it turned out, was a preview of an election campaign never before seen in America-or anywhere else in the known universe. Clintons van ride was soon eclipsed by Donald Trumps famous escalator ride to announce his candidacy as a Republican. Where else but America could a reality TV star, thrice-married casino owner and real estate mogul make a serious bid for President? With Donald Trumps entry, the race for President became more like Survivor than a serious campaign. Every day, the candidate generously heaped insults on his opponents by Twitter. He also infamously insulted Rosie ODonnell, Pope Francis, Megyn Kelly and a former Miss Universe, calling her Miss Piggy. The Republican race became a circus act, complete with nicknames like Little Marco, Lyin Ted and Low-energy Jeb. The size of Donald Trumps hands became a central issue in the primaries. As the field narrowed, the race hinged on two essential issues for Americas future: Secretary Clintons emails and Donald Trumps comments about groping women. It was a battle of Titans, ultimately won by Mr. Trump in a shocking upset. The President-elect savored his victory by claiming widespread voter fraud. Alternative Facts presents a satirical history of the 2016 Campaign, from the Van Ride to the Election. Filled with hysterical articles poking fun of the candidates and the press, Alternative Facts is littered with relevant Tweets from the candidates
Haunted hero. When Dr. Miles Murdoch´s brother was murdered by the mobs, he vowed vengeance. In the following weeks, wearing a horrifying death mask, a new avenger appeared on the streets of Akelton, bringing with him righteous retribution. The city now finds itself under the protection of a haunted hero, a mysterious angel of doom who metes out his own brand of permanent justice. In this second volume featuring this little known classic pulp figure, writers Gene Moyers, Paul Kevin Findley, Erik Franklin, and David Noe pit the purple-hued Master of Fright against a quartet of villainous opponents: from a gang of deadly jewel thieves to a merciless arsonist bent on burning down the entire city. In these new tales of the Purple Scar, justice and horror are on a collision course you don´t want to miss. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alex Beckham.

Zelmont Raines has slid a long way since his ability to jook - to out maneuver his opponents on the field - made him a Super Bowl winning wide receiver, earning him lucrative endorsement deals and more than his share of female attention. But Zee hasn´t always been good at saying no, so a series of missteps involving drugs, a paternity suit or two, legal entanglements, shaky investments, and recurring injuries have virtually sidelined his career. That is, until Los Angeles gets a new pro franchise, the Barons, and Zelmont has one last chance at the big time he dearly misses. Just as it seems he might be getting back in the flow, he´s enraptured by Wilma Wells, the leggy and brainy lawyer for the team - who has a ruthless game plan all her own. And it´s Zelmont who might get jooked. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Darla Middlebrook. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/iamb/000105de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Whether a conflict is between two nations, two businesses or even a person battling physical dysfunction, we tend to assume that the bigger and better armed of the opponents will take the day. That´s why stories like the battle between Goliath and David capture our imagination - they are so remarkable. But Malcolm Gladwell proposes that we are missing out on the bigger picture - we assume too much about outcomes and miss some realities which paint a different picture. Certainly, Goliath presents an imposing threat, but he is generally not as invulnerable as we initially expect, and David is not without resources and options. In making this point in David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants, Gladwell reviews a number of underdog stories which illustrate his core message - that David is much more likely to succeed against Goliath than is generally expected - while providing insights into how each of us can find the resources needed to overcome our own Goliaths. 1.

This epic retelling of the legendary Carthaginian military leader´s assault on the Roman empire begins in Ancient Spain, where Hannibal Barca sets out with tens of thousands of soldiers and 30 elephants. After conquering the Roman city of Saguntum, Hannibal wages his campaign through the outposts of the empire, shrewdly befriending peoples disillusioned by Rome and, with dazzling tactics, outwitting the opponents who believe the land route he has chosen is impossible. Yet Hannibal´s armies must take brutal losses as they pass through the Pyrenees mountains, forge the Rhone river, and make a winter crossing of the Alps before descending to the great tests at Cannae and Rome itself. David Anthony Durham draws a brilliant and complex Hannibal out of the scant historical record´ - sharp, sure-footed, as nimble among rivals as on the battlefield, yet one who misses his family and longs to see his son grow to manhood. Whether portraying the deliberations of a general or the calculations of a common soldier, vast multilayered scenes of battle or moments of introspection when loss seems imminent, Durham brings history alive. 1.
