Allie is running scared. Not from monsters in the closet, or creepy things under the bed; she´s scared of commitment. On the run from a would-be fiancé, she finds a temp job as a barmaid in a small Texas town out in the middle of nowhere. True love is not on the agenda until she meets her big, burly boss, hot-as-hell Thorn Canton, who lights her fires in all the right places. Bear shifter Thorn Canton is a successful tavern owner with no plans whatsoever of getting hitched. In fact, to Thorn, a mate might mean a fate worse than death; literally. This series is centered around the Southwestern town of Burden, Texas. For good ol´ bears Hawthorne, Wyatt, Hutch, Sterling, and Sam, livin´ is easy, beer flows freely, and pretty women are abundant. The last thing the shifters of Burden are thinking about is finding a mate or settling down. But, fate has its own plan. 1. Language: English. Narrator: R.J. Creighton.

The issue was brought forth to British Parliament, and in this memorable speech Richard Cobden asked the men gathered, ´´What are the grounds of this devastation and warfare which are now being carried on in the Canton River?” The debate over this issue continued for four days, but by the end, the majority agreed with Cobden - the attacks had been unfounded. 1.

It´s ´86, the era of Pop Rocks, Jelly shoes, and big hair bands. Rachael O´Brien´s freshman plan seems simple: Attend a southern college away from her hometown of Canton, Ohio, earn a degree, party, and meet cute guys-hopefully acing the latter two. But being threatened by a jealous She-Devil, avoiding the advances of a 30-something redneck, and discovering an art fraud scheme mess with her ´´to do´´ list. On top of her troubles at school, Rachael finds herself forging a new relationship with her emotionally shaken father after Mom abandons the family to pursue a psychic calling.

The Naval Service of the Honorable East India Company, popularly known as the Bombay Marine, operated in romantic areas in perilous times. From the Indian Ocean to the South China Sea, from Calcutta to Canton, the Company ships were famous for their speed and daring. The ´´Bombay Buccaneers´´ who sailed them were the stuff of legend. For Percival Merewether, 1806 would be a year to remember. For in January of that year he was promoted from First Lieutenant to become the junior Captain in the Company´s Service and given the command of his first ship - the Rapid. Armed with 10 nine-pounders, the Rapid was a match for any pirate ship that crossed its bows, and in it Captain Merewether was to spend as action-packed and eventful a first year as any ambitious young seafarer could have wished. Merewether had quick wits and daring to match his ambition. And with mutinies, diplomatic intrigues, and skirmishes with the French to occupy him, he soon found that he needed both qualities as never before. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Steven Crossley.
