For goth-girl Raven, dating her dream boyfriend is complicated, especially because Alexander’s secret means that they can see each other only at night. And now the pair must be extra wary in the dark with Alexander’s archrival, Jagger, appearing around town. As if Jagger isn’t enough cause for worry, Luna, his strikingly pale sister, has also surfaced and seems to have her sights set on Raven’s longtime nemesis, Trevor. Together, Raven and Alexander must begin a terrifying search for Jagger and Luna’s hideout to drive them away—that is, if it’s not already too late to save Dullsville from becoming Vampireville. In the latest installment of her popular Vampire Kisses books, Ellen Schreiber continues the startling story of two teen outsiders—she from the mortal world and he from the Underworld—who share a thrilling, extraordinary romance. 1.

Greetings! Welcome to the Language Magic™ dual-language learning series. After you’ve learned the basics from the classroom or one of the many excellent language learning programs out there, it's time to get fluent!It’s true that gaining fluency with a language is a big hill to climb. But it’s also true that there are different ways to climb that hill. The fastest way is total immersion. Live in country. But most of us can’t do that. What’s the next best approach? Stories. Audiobooks. But that’s a struggle if you don’t know what is being said.With our dual-language audiobooks, Language Magic™ bridges the gap between where you are and where you want to be. The story alternates continuously between your native language and the language you’re learning.Get fluent the fun and easy way! Discover that you can relax and enjoy the story while absorbing the language as you listen, and you can listen to it over and over until you find you can understand it completely in the language you are learning.The Raven, The Cask of Amontillado, and The Tell-Tale Heart are some of Poe’s most famous works. These dual-language versions of The Cask of Amontillado and The Tell-Tale Heart from Language Magic™ are original translations optimized to aid language learners on the fast-track to fluency. The version of The Raven was translated by Juan Antonio Pérez Bonalde in 1887, and while beautiful, language learners may find it more difficult. Bonalde took poetic license to make the rhyme and meter align with the English. Hence, with this work, Bonalde’s Spanish translation of the English carries the overall meaning and spirit of the passage, but it doesn’t track the English as closely as it does in our other dual-language offerings.If you are learning English, we recommend you use the version of the story that leads with your native language, so you hear each sentence in your native language, 1.

Master storyteller Andrew Kaplan presents an explosive, atmospheric thriller set in the early days of World War II, when the Nazis, with the help of their Argentinean collaborators, staked out territory in the South Atlantic. An Argentine playboy races down the darkened alleys of Buenos Aires, a German on his tail. He darts into a steamy tango hall and begs one of the dancers for refuge, but his pursuer is unshakable. The German leaves with the scrap of information that had been destined for the Americans. The playboy was a spy for the Allies, known as Raven. American polo player Charles Stewart is sent to discover who the Raven's source was. A secret agent in a time before the CIA, he wants to be on the front lines in Europe, not in the back alleys of Buenos Aires. But the Nazis have engineered a plot to turn Argentina toward their cause--and with it all of South America. The world's destiny will be decided in the land of tango, and Stewart, mingling with Argentine high society, will be the one leading the dance. War of the Raven was selected by the American Library Association as one of the 100 best books ever written about World War II. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andy Caploe.

Real life cuckoldress Raven Merlot is proud to present two of her cuckolding series in one exciting package! Included in this audiobook are Raven Merlot's second and third cuckolding series. Cuckolds in Paradise: "Eden Redux" is a tropical swingers resort where people come to make their most forbidden fantasies come true. Kate and Eli came to fulfill their long held dream of getting knocked up, and they'll get help from every man on the island before they are done. In their sexual relationship, Kate is the boss. She has no qualms about lining up men to give her pleasure while her husband watches, encouraging them and telling her how much he loves her. Jesse and Danielle arrived at the resort not knowing what to expect. They were curious but never expected to meet a couple like Kate and Eli, let alone be inspired by them. Cuckolding My Billionaire Husband: John is like every other billionaire. He's arrogant and entitled. He even thinks he can cheat on his wife. When she finds out she turns the tables on him and forces him become her cuckolded slave. He learns to anticipate her every desire and willingly abandon his pride for his wife's lusts for other men. Included in these series are multiple encounters between insatiably dominant women and men who are NOT their husbands. The unexplainable feelings of awkward, aroused inadequacy permeate the now cuckolded husbands who have no choice but to abandon their egos and their wives' bodies to the lusts and rough treatment of strange men. As with Raven Merlot's first series, My Husband, My Cuckold, these books do more than just describe graphic sex between married women and men who are not their husbands. They also focus on the feelings that the cuckolded men experience as they watch their wives receive previously unimaginable amounts of pleasure from young, single men who gratefully worship a woman's body. 1.
