Modern English Literature:A Selection of the Best Known Works Circulated, With Which Is Embodied a Guide to Popular Works of Fiction (Classic Reprint) Boots Book-Lovers´ Library
She never expected to feel the vibrations all the way to her broken heartstrings. Diapers and baby food are uppermost in Skye Blackwood´s mind - at least until she´s alone at night. Two years is a long time, and her toy collection isn´t all that satisfying. Especially since her battery-operated lovers came from Booker, her ex. Everyone said they married too young, and they were right. He could be a bigger part of their daughter´s life, though, so she tracks him down - and is shocked to discover he´s working at a Texas sex therapy ranch. She reserves a week of something tall, dark, and cowboy for herself, planning to use her downtime to talk to Booker. When Skye steps onto the Boot Knockers stage, Booker doesn´t hesitate to pull the plug. A giant misunderstanding may have ended things between them, but no way is he letting another cowboy into her bed. Once alone, their animal attraction flares back to life. But time hasn´t healed the emotional wounds that still run deep. And renewing their old bond could be the biggest mistake they ever made. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Janet King.

There are no words for desire this hot...but he´ll sure try to find them. The Boot Knockers Ranch, book 2. If there´s one thing that Damian Vince can do well, it´s read women. With his trademark wink and sexy drawl, he´s the most wanted cowboy on the Boot Knockers Ranch, a spa where sexually challenged women come to get charmed out of their uptight panties. He´s also the ranch´s bad boy - he hates to admit he´s had his mug shot taken more than once. But now he´s on the right path, ranching and fulfilling women´s desires. Prim grade-school teacher Ruthie Johansson prays Damian will be able to fix her strict upbringing that´s left her leery of men and intercourse, though her body aches for both. Once she sets eyes on the muscular, auburn-haired Damian, she throbs only for him. As they get skin to skin, her instinct touches something Damian´s been struggling to hide from his fellow Boot Knockers. A secret he´s spent a lifetime keeping buried beneath bar brawls and a bad attitude. But with Ruthie´s gentle coaxing, he just might give overcoming it another try - as long as they do their homework in bed. Warning: contains a bad boy with a vulnerable underside, a squeaky clean woman who wants to get dirty, and a secret shame only love and compassion can heal. Prepare to drool while he parses her sentences...one sexy verb at a time. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Janet King. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/inbl/000094/bk_inbl_000094_sample.mp3.

Black Knights of the Hudson is a series of books about a fictional U.S. Army family from 1860 through World War II. The audiobooks should appeal to listeners who enjoy historical fiction, family sagas, and military fiction. Book II: Boots and Saddles (1868 to 1883) is the second installment in the story of the MacKendrick Army family, who live by West Point´s motto of ´´Duty, Honor, Country”. With the Civil War over, James seeks a return to the cheerful fatalism of the professional soldier, and is even willing to serve in the hated Cavalry. Timothy, cooling his heels in a Staff position, has his hands full with his willful wife who has yet to learn that a good Army wife does not hesitate to follow her husband - even to dismal outposts in the Western territories. She pays a heavy price for her obstinacy and independence in the glittering social whirl of post-Civil War New York. Gwyneth O´Donnell, a young Army brat at an Arizona post, has learned the role of a true Army wife at her mother´s knee and is prepared to throw herself into a passionate love for a professional soldier in a way that Timothy´s wife cannot match. In Arizona and the turmoil of the Plains, James and Timothy face Apache, Cheyenne, and Sioux in the great Indian wars of the post-Civil War era as they come to terms with a military policy that in one breath wants to protect Indian treaty lands and, in the next, seeks to conquer them in the name of Manifest Destiny. 1.

It´ll take more than ropes and whips for this cowboy to keep his bratty woman in line. At 23, Bree Roberts is ready to sow some wild oats. The perfect place to start? The neighboring spread - The Boot Knockers Ranch, where 20 smokin´ hot cowboys deliver sexual therapy to women. The problem? The entry fee is more than she´s made in a lifetime. Only wanting to explore, she figures her tanned, toned legs will be her ticket to ride. Except Ty keeps kicking her off their land. Then she begins to suspect the reason why. He likes her. If Ty spots that little vixen wrapped around one of his cowboys one more time, he´s going to throw her over his knee. Trouble is she´d like it. Catching her participating in the ranch´s notorious semiclad Cornhole tournament is one thing, but when he finds her under their resident dom´s whip, enough is enough. Ty won´t throw a naked woman out of his bed, namely one who deserves a spanking, but showing Bree the rewards of sex mixed with a little emotion leads to trails neither of them intended to tread. Warning: Contains a spitfire cowgirl who excels at breaking the rules and a cowboy who lays down the law - and a firm hand on her ass cheek. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Janet King.

In this second of the sultry Western-set Coming Home series from New York Times best-selling author Harper Sloan, Quinn Davis might finally have a shot at her own happily ever after - but will she let love in, or will she tell it to go ahead and kiss her boots? Quinn Davis prefers to live her life quietly. She´s the stereotypical tomboy, with two overprotective big brothers who have always been there to protect her, especially from devilishly handsome cowboys with silver tongues. That is until Tate Montgomery comes riding into town. Their first meeting, however, is far from something out of a fairy tale and only further convinces Quinn that men aren´t worth her time. The only place Tate Montgomery ever truly felt at home growing up was during the long, sweltering summer months he spent at his Gram and Paw´s farm in Pine Oak, Texas. Now Tate has returned to his childhood sanctuary seeking a fresh start - but if he´s being entirely honest, he´s not just back for the wranglers and Stetsons. During those summers Quinn was a friend-turned-young-love whom Tate lost when life threw him a curveball and he cut all ties to his past, but all it takes is one glance at the raven-haired beauty he did his best to forget for him to realize just how much he´s been missing.... 1.

She wants to turn up the heat. He´s got the skills to whip her into a frenzy. TV food show host Tabbart Tracy works hard to give viewers her best recipes. But while her fans are legion, her personal life is colder than a meat locker. Most men just want her to serve up some pie - in the nude. One glance at her assistant´s sexy brother, though, and her body skips straight from low simmer to rolling boil. Especially when she tracks him down at a stud ranch. Where he´s the stud. When a certain little TV foodie personally requests Stowe´s company for a week, he´s flattered as hell. She needs to give up some control, and as a sex therapist otherwise known as the ´´Dom from Down Under´´, Stowe has the leather, rope, and paddles to do it. Just as Tabbart melts into a puddle under Stowe´s hands, her worst fear chills her back to reality: Someone recognizes her. Worse, her Master frowns on opening her checkbook to make it all go away. But trusting him means hanging on to their connection with both hands - while he takes her for the ride of her life. Warning: This book contains a TV chef looking for some R&R (as in rough and raunchy) and a whip-wielding Aussie cowboy Dom intent on showing her she can take the heat. As hot as - and anywhere - she wants it. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Janet King. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/inbl/000115/bk_inbl_000115_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
