Mark Twain´s classic tale recounts the adventures of the ever resourceful Tom Sawyer and his friend Huckleberry Finn in the little town of St Petersburg, Missouri, on the banks of the Mississippi. A story of robbers, graveyards at midnight, buried treasure, and a deep and mysterious cave, Tom Sawyer has lost none of its power to enthral and delight since it was first published in 1876. 1.

She´s arriving in Alaska within days. However, there´s a complication...or two. She hasn´t told them she´s arriving with kids! The Marriage Risk Like his brothers, Charles O´Halloran has a distrust of marriage in general - and of anyone related to Catherine Harmon Fletcher in particular.

Coyote Crossing is a dusty little sh*thole town in western Oklahoma. A sleepy little pit stop for truckers, not a lot going on. So a dead body in the middle of the street at midnight is quite an event. The chief of police wants all hands on deck, so he calls Toby Sawyer to come babysit the body. Toby doesn’t have a lot going for him. Twenty-five, a couple of years of junior college, married to a girl he got pregnant, and living in a trailer on the edge of town. He’s working part time for the police department, hoping the budget comes through and they can put him on full time, so he can get health benefits. His wife is a waitress at a little crap diner near the railroad tracks. When he gets the call about the dead body, he pins his tin star to his Weezer t-shirt, slips into a pair of sweatpants and grabs his revolver. Victor Gischler is the author of five novels, including Gun Monkeys, Shotgun Opera, and Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Evan Greenberg.

Civil war devastated the country and left Rachel Sawyer stranded in a dead-end job as a seamstress with no prospects for marriage. Men are thin on the ground in Massachusetts, so Rachel and her best friend travel west, to Seattle, with the handsome Talbot brothers. Jason Talbot, the eldest brother and wealthy owner of a lumber company, is so far beyond her reach that falling in love with him is the most non-sensical thing she could do. So, of course, she does. But after one sensual midnight encounter, Jason pushes her away. Jason Talbot and his brothers are desperate to keep their lumberjack crews happy. And if that means traveling across the country to escort a hundred women to Seattle as mail-order brides, that´s what he´ll do. The brides are for other men. After losing his wife 10 years ago, he´s not interested in risking another devastating blow to his heart. When Rachel catches his eye, his head and his heart are at war, and he´s not sure which side will win. But when a thief springs up in their midst, and Rachel´s determination to solve the mystery leads to murder, Jason realizes he´ll do anything, not just to protect her from a killer, but to win her heart. 1.
