At the grisly murder scene of a teen prostitute, Virginia state trooper Riley Tatum´s past roars back to haunt her. When she was a teenage runaway, she was kidnapped, drugged, and left unconscious on the streets. She has no memories of what happened, only strange recurring dreams of two men playing cards. Former FBI agent Clay Bowman, Riley´s old flame, is Shield Security´s newest member. He´s plagued by the unsolved case of a serial killer nicknamed the Shark who murdered girls as part of a sadistic poker game. Only one girl survived. With the Shark now bent on evening that score, Clay has a chilling suspicion: Riley is the girl who escaped the Shark´s deadly amusement - and she is his next prey. As the Shark gets ready to play his hand, can Riley and Clay stop him - or will this killer finally claim the one who got away? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Christina Traister.

One night. It was supposed to be one wild night with my friend - a fiercely sexy chef. Now, I can´t stop thinking about her. Can´t stop craving her flavor. And that was before I found out our no-strings night resulted in two little pink lines. As the number one winger for the Seattle Sharks and the last man standing in our bad-boy trio, the only lines I´m familiar with are red and blue. But while hockey is my life, Jeannine branded herself on my heart. She´s in so deep, I couldn´t cut her out even if I wanted to. What do I want? Everything. She wants to do this on her own - she´s never needed a man. The little bundle swelling her gorgeous body isn´t going to change that. I´ve got three months to change Jeanine´s mind - to prove I´m ready to trade the nightlife for dad life, but for once, my reputation off the ice isn´t helping me score the girl. The harder I try, the higher she builds her walls. The thought of losing them both is more terrifying than a career-ending injury. Our clock is running down, and if I can´t prove that I´m all-in for her and our baby, our chance at forever will end in a shutout. This time, I´m playing for keeps. Contains mature themes. 1.

Master storyteller Peter Benchley combines high adventure with practical information in Shark Trouble, a book that is at once a thriller and a valuable guide to being safe in, on, under, and around the sea. The best-selling author of Jaws, The Deep, and other works draws on more than three decades of experience to share information about sharks and other marine animals.´´Shark attacks on human beings generate a tremendous amount of media coverage,” Benchley writes, ´´partly because they occur so rarely, but mostly, I think, because people are, and always have been, simultaneously intrigued and terrified by sharks. Sharks come from a wing of the dark castle where our nightmares live - deep water beyond our sight and understanding - and so they stimulate our fears and fantasies and imaginations.”Benchley describes the many types of sharks (including the ones that pose a genuine threat to man), what is and isn’t known about shark behavior, the odds against an attack and how to reduce them even further - all reinforced with the lessons he has learned, the mistakes he has made, and the personal perils he has encountered while producing television documentaries, best-selling novels, and articles about the sea and its inhabitants. He tells how to swim safely in the ocean, how to read the tides and currents, what behavior to avoid, and how to survive when danger suddenly strikes. He discusses how to tell children about sharks and the sea and how to develop, in young and old alike, a healthy respect for the ocean.As Benchley says, ´´The ocean is the only alien and potentially hostile environment on the planet into which we tend to venture without thinking about the animals that live there, how they behave, how they support themselves, and how they perceive us. I know of no one who would set off into the jungles of Malaysia armed only with a bathing suit, a tube of suntan cream, and a book, and yet that’s precisely how w 1. Language: English.

Sharks and dolphins both have torpedo-shaped bodies with fins on their backs. They slice through the water to grab their prey with sharp teeth. But despite their similarities, sharks and dolphins belong to different animal classes: One is a fish and gets oxygen from the water, and the other is a mammal and gets oxygen from the air. Marine educator Kevin Kurtz guides early listeners to compare and contrast these ocean predators through simple nonfiction text. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tyler Stoe.
