Brilliantly funny, here is teenage-angst author Louise Rennison’s first audiobook about the confessions of crazy but lovable Georgia Nicolson. "There are six things very wrong with my life: 1. I have one of those under-the-skin spots that will never come to a head but lurk in a red way for the next two years. 2. It is on my nose. 3. I have a three-year-old sister who may have peed somewhere in my room. 4. In 14 days the summer hols will be over and then it will be back to Stalag 14 and Oberführer Frau Simpson and her bunch of sadistic 'teachers'. 5. I am very ugly and need to go into an ugly home. 6. I went to a party dressed as a stuffed olive. Follow Georgia's hilarious antics as she tries to overcome the dilemma’s that are weighing up against her, and muddle her way through teenage life and all that it entails: how to replace accidentally shaved-off eyebrows; how to cope with Angus, her small Labrador-sized Scottish wildcat; her first kiss with Peter – afterwards known as Whelk Boy; annoying teachers; unsympathetic friends and family, and how to entice Robbie the Sex God! Phew – she’s really got her work cut out! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Louise Rennison. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/hcuk/000678/bk_hcuk_000678_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Reporter Beth Wright is hot on the trail of a story that could expose an ugly scandal at the St. Clair Children's Home. But there's another hunter on the scene, someone who wants to make sure the story never sees print - and who isn't averse to lethal means, either. Nick Hutchins, a social worker, has his own uneasy hunches about the children's home, which are confirmed by Beth's investigation, a high-speed attempt on her life, and finally the startling confessions of an intruder. An appalling picture emerges of helpless children under the sway of a modern-day Fagin. There's one person who can save the children: Beth herself. But using the key could cost her reputation - or her life. One of the Sun Coast Chronicles, Presumption of Guilt is a gripping portrayal of the depths of human evil, the soul-twisting influence of lies, and the far-reaching freedom of God's mercy and grace. 1.

Tied and Twisted Since leaving the Army to launch a private security company and raise his younger sister, David Burke doesn't have time for women outside of business. He swears by casual and uncomplicated, and satisfies his needs within the walls of a friend's club - until business and pleasure cross paths in one of the club's exclusive Blue Rooms. When Jovanna Steeple's past rears its ugly head and violates the new life she's making, David might be enough to save her heart - but will he be enough to save her life? Naked and Unleashed The line between business and pleasure was never a concern for Callista Voorhees until Mikal Steele stepped off her client list and into her most twisted fantasies. She knows she shouldn't draw him into her uncivilized need to surrender, but Mikal's thinly restrained violence wreaks havoc with her good sense. Divided by responsibility and desire, Mikal fights to remain in control. He almost succeeds - until the lure of the Blue Room draws Callista in, and her confessions unleash Mikal's darkest beast. Tangled and Bound The powerful, magnetic man seated beside Melanie Burke on a flight to Las Vegas could have walked straight out of one of her dog-eared romance novels. When he strikes up a conversation with her on the late-evening flight, fictional fantasies become knee-weakening, panty-soaking, feminine-core-clenching reality - a reality she wants to revisit again and again. But jaded club owner Sam Fletcher has seen everything in the Blue Rooms, and he's weary of the games people play in pursuit of a thrill. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Hollie Jackson.

Irgendwo haben wir diese Geschichte schon einmal gehört: Eine schöne Kaufmannstochter gerät sehr ins Hintertreffen, als sie eine herrische Stiefmutter bekommt, und zwei hässliche Stiefschwestern dazu. Die Schöne sieht sich bald auf Hausarbeit und Aschekehren reduziert... In diesem wunderbaren historischen Roman wird das alte Märchen vom Aschenbrödel allerdings kräftig gegen den Strich gebürstet. Im Mittelpunkt steht Iris, eine der "hässlichen Schwestern", die mit Mutter und Schwester vor Gewalt und Terror fliehen musste und in den Niederlanden Zuflucht zu finden hofft. Doch das Haarlem des 17. Jahrhunderts ist ein misstrauischer, unfreundlicher Ort: Die Türen bleiben ihnen verschlossen, die Herzen auch. Vor dem Hungertod rettet die kleine Familie ausgerechnet ein Maler, der selbst am Hungertuch nagt. Die Begegnung mit der Malerei ist für Iris wie eine Offenbarung. Nichts möchte sie lieber, als beim Meister in die Lehre zu gehen und selbst die Malkunst zu erlernen. Der Maler arbeitet a n dem Gemälde, das sein großes Meisterstück werden wird: "Mädchen mit Tulpen". Sein Modell ist die schöne Kaufmannstochter Clara, die sehr scheu ist und nie aus dem Haus geht. Es kommt zu einer schicksalhaften Begegnung. Und kurze Zeit später bricht in ganz Holland das Tulpenfieber aus...
I Am is a book of poetic statements that children can begin confessing now. As they mature, they will build the confidence needed to face life's challenges. Children are a blessing from the Lord. As Psalms 139:14 says, they are fearfully and wonderfully made. Unfortunately, they are not always reminded of this truth. Instead, they are often surrounded by negative images, words and actions. With the help of this book, if a child hears, 'you are ugly,' quickly, they can refute those negative words by thinking, or even saying out loud, the confessions: 'I am cute,' or 'I am unique.' Whether negative or positive, children will eventually believe what they hear and say most often. Let's start building up the positive in our children, leaving no room for the negative. 'I Am: A-Z Poetic Confessions for Kids,' is a giant step in that direction. They can say the positive confessions in this book over and over again. It is written for children to help build confidence, self-esteem, and excitement about life, enabling them to grow to their fullest potential.
