Völlig ungeplant wird aus den gespielten Küssen echte Leidenschaft GEHEIME VERMÄCHTNISSE Die Glut in Santo Correttis Augen hat schon so manches Frauenherz verbrannt. Nur seine schöne Assistentin bleibt kühl. Erst als sie kündigt, gesteht Ella dem sizilianischen Tycoon ihre Gefühle. Santo sehnt sich danach, mit ihr in seinen Armen für eine Nacht die Skandale zu vergessen, die seine Familie erschüttern. Doch Ella zu verführen, gleicht einem Tanz auf dem Vulkan ? VERLOBUNG AUF SIZILIANISCH Keine Flirts, Drinks oder Dramen, sonst verliert Taylor ihre Traumrolle. Nichts leichter als das, denkt die auf ihren Ruf bedachte Schauspielerin.

VERBOTENE STUNDEN DES GLÜCKS Angelo Corretti kennt nur eine Leidenschaft: Rache. Fern der Heimat hat er Macht und Reichtum errungen, um die Correttis zu zerstören - jene Familie, die ihn, den unehelichen Sohn, verstoßen hat. Doch es gab eine Zeit vor vielen Jahren, als auch ein junges Mädchen Platz in seinem Herzen fand: seine beste Freundin Lucia, mit der er eine einzige Nacht der Leidenschaft erlebte, bevor er sie und Sizilien im Morgengrauen verließ. VERHÄNGNISVOLLE KÜSSE Ist ihr ganzes Leben eine Lüge? Rosa Corretti ist schockiert, als sie erfährt, wer ihr wahrer Vater ist. Hals über Kopf läuft die junge Sizilianerin davon und betäubt ihren Schmerz an der Côte d?Azur mit Shopping, Champagner - und einem Flirt, der einen Skandal auslöst. Denn der charismatische Fremde, dem sie in seine Suite folgt, ist niemand anderes als Scheich Kulal Al-Dimashqi ? SCHICKSALSNÄCHTE AUF SIZILIEN Die Correttis leben im Scheinwerferlicht - nur Lia führt ein Schattendasein innerhalb ihrer glamourösen Familie. Bis die schöne Sizilianerin auf einer Feier in ein Paar dunkler Augen blickt, das bis auf den Grund ihrer Seele dringt. Zachs Augen. Ist es diese Seelenverwandtschaft, wegen der es ihm gelingt, ungeahnte Seiten der Lust in ihr zu wecken? BRANDUNG DER BEGIERDE Um eine alte Familienfehde zu beenden, tritt Alessandro Corretti mit der Tochter seiner Erzfeinde vor den Altar. Doch die Braut läuft davon! Aufgewühlt zieht der Unternehmer sich auf seine Jacht zurück - und entdeckt weit draußen auf dem Meer eine blinde Passagierin: Elena. Die Blondine, mit der er einst allzu innig tanzte ? DAS EWIGE FEUER DER LIEBE Es war ein kurzer Traum in Weiß: Schockiert verfolgen die Hochzeitsgäste, wie Alessia nur Sekunden vor dem Jawort aus der Kirche flieht. Keiner ahnt, dass sie ein Stoßgebet zum Himmel schickt, damit der wahre Mann ihres Herzens ihr folgt: Matteo Corretti, der mächtige Hoteltycoon - und Cousin des Bräutigams!

An exposé of pseudoscientific myths about our evolutionary past and how we should live today. We evolved to eat berries rather than bagels, to live in mud huts rather than condos, to sprint barefoot rather than play football - or did we? Are our bodies and brains truly at odds with modern life? Although it may seem as though we have barely had time to shed our hunter-gatherer legacy, biologist Marlene Zuk reveals that the story is not so simple. Popular theories about how our ancestors lived - and why we should emulate them - are often based on speculation, not scientific evidence. Armed with a razor-sharp wit and brilliant, eye-opening research, Zuk takes us to the cutting edge of biology to show that evolution can work much faster than was previously realized, meaning that we are not biologically the same as our caveman ancestors. Contrary to what the glossy magazines would have us believe, we do not enjoy potato chips because they crunch just like the insects our forebears snacked on. And women don’t go into shoe-shopping frenzies because their prehistoric foremothers gathered resources for their clans. As Zuk compellingly argues, such beliefs incorrectly assume that we’re stuck - finished evolving - and have been for tens of thousands of years. She draws on fascinating evidence that examines everything from adults’ ability to drink milk to the texture of our ear wax to show that we’ve actually never stopped evolving. From debunking the caveman diet to unraveling gender stereotypes, Zuk delivers an engrossing analysis of widespread paleofantasies and the scientific evidence that undermines them, all the while broadening our understanding of our origins and what they can really tell us about our present and our future. 1.

´´I grew up in a world where everyone worried about how they´d pay for Christmas. Now I live in one where opportunities abound for the wealthy and privileged to shower their generosity on the community´s poor.´´ - J.D. Vance ´´No matter our financial position, our family somehow managed to spend just more than we had on holiday shopping. We didn´t qualify for credit cards, but there were many ways to spend money you didn´t have.´´ - J.D. Vance ´´Some people may conclude that I come from a clan of lunatics. But the stories made me feel like hillbilly royalty, because these were classic good-versus-evil stories, and my people were on the right side. My people were extreme, but extreme in the service of something - defending a sister´s honor or ensuring that a criminal paid for his crimes.´´ - J.D. Vance ´´The truth is hard, and the hardest truths for hill people are the ones they must tell about themselves. Jackson is undoubtedly full of the nicest people in the world; it is also full of drug addicts and at least one man who can find the time to make eight children but can´t find the time to support them. It is unquestionably beautiful, but its beauty is obscured by the environmental waste and loose trash that scatters the countryside.´´ - J.D. Vance What you will learn from listening to this audiobook: What life is truly like for families of the South, Appalachia, and the Rust Belt. The core of the issues that have plagued working-class whites and ´´hillbillies´´ for decades in America. How the author was able to overcome those issues and become a successful graduate of Yale Law School What ´´Hillbilly culture´´ truly is and how it has contributed to the stagnation of a large portion of the country. How the psychological effects of adverse childhood experiences continue to affect many of them throughout their entire lives. That it is possible to ... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Anthony Pica.

Thought-provoking and eye-opening, Blood and Silk is an accessible, personal look at modern Southeast Asia, written by one of the region´s most experienced outside observers. This is a first-hand account of what it´s like to sit at the table with deadly Thai Muslim insurgents, mediate between warring clans in the Southern Philippines and console the victims of political violence in Indonesia - all in an effort to negotiate peace and understand the reasons behind endemic violence. Peering beyond brand new shopping malls and shiny glass towers in Bangkok and Jakarta, Michael Vatikiotis probes the heart of modern Southeast Asia. Why are the region´s richest countries such as Malaysia riddled with corruption? Why do Myanmar, Thailand and the Philippines harbour unresolved violent insurgencies? How do deepening religious divisions in Indonesia and Malaysia and China´s growing influence affect the region and the rest of the world? Vatikiotis tells the story of modern Southeast Asia using vivid portraits of the personalities who pull the strings, mixed with revealing analysis that is underpinned by decades of experience in the countries involved, from their silk-sheathed salons to blood-spattered streets. The result is a fascinating study of the dynamics of power and conflict in one of the world´s fastest growing regions. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Matt Bates.

Liss MacCrimmon´s meddlesome mother is back in Moosetookalook, Maine, to serve a hefty portion of trouble in time for Thanksgiving. But when a scandalous murder case threatens to leave Liss alone at the table, family drama takes on a terrifying new meaning . . . While Liss preps the Scottish Emporium for November´s inevitable shopping rush, other local businesses aren´t half as lucky. Year after year, her father-in-law´s rustic hotel can barely turn a profit during the stretch between autumn´s peak and ski season. Except this time, Mr. Ruskin realizes that the recipe for success lies in enticing an untapped niche clientele-childless couples desperate for a holiday away from family . . . The unusual marketing tactic has everyone in Moosetookalook talking. Unfortunately, it also inspires a scathing social media campaign aimed at persuading tourists to boycott the hotel for affronting family values. Liss dismisses the bad publicity as being totally ´´overkilt´´-until angry mobs fill the streets, the troublemaker who started it all turns up dead, and her loved ones are suspected of murder . . . With so much at stake, Liss can´t possibly follow police orders to stay out of the investigation. There´s just one wee problem: saving her own clan could mean sending a friend or two behind bars. Now-partly helped, partly hindered by her difficult mother-Liss must digest a slew of unsettling clues and catch the real killer . . . or else everything she´s ever been thankful for may vanish before her eyes.
