Things seem to be going well for Liv Silver: She´s adjusting to her new home (and her new family) in London; she has a burgeoning romance with Henry Harper, one of the cutest boys in school; and the girl who´s been turning her dreams into nightmares, Anabel, is now locked up. But serenity doesn´t last for long. It seems that Liv´s troubles are far from over - in fact, suddenly they´re piling up. School gossip blogger Secrecy knows all of Liv´s most intimate secrets, Henry might be hiding something from her, and at night Liv senses a dark presence following her through the corridors of the dream world. Does someone have a score to settle with Liv? Romance, adventure, and danger abound in Dream On, the second audiobook in the Silver trilogy. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Marisa Calin.

This first volume of Best Sex Writing of the Year features a number of significant bloggers and some of the most important stories of the past two years. Alexandria Goddard is the blogger who made the important connections in the historic Steubenville Rape Case; Epiphora is the most renowned and saucy sex toy reviewer who has legions of dedicated followers; Lux Alptraum has recently sold the wildly successful Fleshbot and taken an editorial position at Nerve. These contributors (and many others) know the words that sell online, and their presence in this collection will carry tremendous weight with listeners. At the same time, this anthology features topics that have not received as much attention in previous editions. Jiz Lee raises exasperated hands to the ongoing ban of fisting in porn. Internationally acclaimed musician Ember Swift recounts her sexual appetites while she was pregnant. David Henry Sterry remembers his experience as a sex worker providing service to an 82-year-old woman. People - including those beyond the sex community - are learning to consider sex from many different angles, and this collection covers a great number of them. 1. Language: English.

A tough, topical financial thriller that exposes the dark underbelly of Wall Street. After a stint in the Middle East, black ops vet Silas Cade becomes an ´´accountant´´ - the go-to for financiers who need things done quickly, quietly, and by any means necessary. Silas is hired by a major player to pay a visit to a hedge-fund manager to demand clawback: the mandatory return of compensation paid on a deal that goes bad. But before Cade can tell his client that he got his $10 million back, the guy turns up dead. And he´s not the first. Someone´s killing investment bankers whose funds have gone south. Silas´s scrubbed identity, and his insider´s perspective, makes him the ideal shadow man to track down whoever´s murdering some of the most hated managers on Wall Street. With the aid of a beautiful financial blogger looking to break her first big story, Silas tracks a violent security crew who may be the key to the executions. But as paranoia and panic spread, he begins to wonder: is the threat coming from inside the game-or out? With breakneck pacing, nonstop action, and the cutting-edge details of today´s financial intelligence technology, Clawback hurtles to its final twist, a gripping contemporary tale of shady finance, venal corruption, and greed run rampant. 1.
