Declan McGillis can´t stand rich people. But working as a deckhand on a luxury charter yacht, he also can´t escape them. Declan has spent years kissing their ass and doing their bidding... whatever it takes to make his dreams come true, and nothing will get in his way of being the captain of his own yacht one day.

Things aren´t always what they seem, and not only does Mackenzie have the weight of her family´s struggles on her shoulders, she also needs to prove to Declan that she´s not the spoiled princess he believes her to be.

Schoolteacher Gracie James has never seen more danger than in her kindergarten classroom, but when she goes searching for her missing sister, she´s thrown into a world of sex, crime...and passion. Following a hot lead, she sneaks onto a stranger´s boat--and gets caught. Their one-sided conversation convinces her of two things. One: The guy is seriously sexy. Two: He knows something about her sister. Oh, yeah. And did she mention he´s sexy? And a sizzling attraction... Jake Alexander, former cop, is staking out a yacht brimming with criminal activity for an insurance company when a woman, dressed to kill and totally irresistible, stumbles into his dangerous undercover op.

Tommy Quinn has just landed the job of his dreams as an investment banker at J. S. Spenser, as well as the perfect girl, Frances Sloan, the daughter of one of New York´s oldest moneyed families. As he travels from the most exclusive ballrooms to the stuffiest boardrooms, from the golf links to the bedrooms of Park Avenue - and from the debauched yacht of a Mexican billionaire to the Ritalin-strewn dorm room of his younger brother - he finds that the job and the girl are not what they once seemed. Set against the backdrop of money, lust, power, corruption, cynicism, energy, and excitement that is Wall Street, Dana Vachon´s debut is suffused with an authenticity that only an author who lives in that world can provide. With Mergers & Acquisitions, he delivers a stylish and hilarious tale of the lives and loves of well-to-do young Manhattanites in their first year on Wall Street. Sharp, fast-paced, and bitingly witty, Mergers & Acquisitions is a compulsively listenable story of New York´s young, ambitious, and wealthy that is destined to become one of the year´s most buzzed-about debuts. 1.

The bullet tore through 900 meters before the ejected shell casing even hit the ground. Splitting thick blond hairs with enormous energy, it introduced itself to Sven Olagssen and valiantly rushed out the other side of his head, exploding into thousands of unidentifiable little pieces - just as designed. Agent Stone calmly pulled his head back from his sniper scope. His senses were on full alert now. Red-billed blue Mmagpies were chirping to each other and showing off their bright colors; nearby an occasional bulbul would interrupt them with an anxious tweedle, and osmanthus flowers filled the air with their intoxicatingly sweet scent. For some, death was a disturbing and haunting reality. For others, it was something never witnessed or spoken of. For Trey Stone, the death of his targets meant many others would live. He had no problem falling asleep that night to the humming engines of the CIA yacht…until a phone call spun his life around and drew him into a dark and very personal war.If you like Tom Clancy, James Patterson, David Baldacci, Daniel Silva, or Ward Larsen, then you will love Conrad Brasso! 1.

In 1975 seven-year-old Doina Cornell left England with her father Jimmy Cornell, mother and brother to spend the next six years sailing around the world on a small yacht. The author has drawn on her memories, diaries and stories, to re-create the perfect life led by a sailing child: Swimming, diving and playing the days away in deserted anchorages; visiting some of the most beautiful islands in the world; falling in love with the sea in all its ever-changing moods, from balmy trade wind ocean passages to the treacherous breakers that crash onto tropical reefs. Beautifully narrated by premier voice-artist Tanya Bartlett, the New Street Nautical Audio Edition of Child of the Sea distills a vivid evocation of the sailing life from the perspective of a bright, curious and delightful child. The audiobook can be encountered as a simple story, in the clear language of a child, and nothing more. Or it can be encountered as a comment on what ingredients make for a perfect childhood, in these days when much ink is spilled on meditating that very question. What do children need to grow up happy and healthy? Security with their family; an element of risk and freedom to explore the world; openness to other peoples and cultures; a sense of the environment and our finite resources. The sailing life offers all these and more. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tanya S. Bartlett. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/019205/bk_acx0_019205_sample.mp3.

If you loved Hidden Figures or The Rise of the Rocket Girls, you´ll love Claire Evans´ breakthrough book on the women who brought you the internet--written out of history, until now. ´´This is a radically important, timely work,´´ says Miranda July, filmmaker and author of The First Bad Man. The history of technology you probably know is one of men and machines, garages and riches, alpha nerds and brogrammers--but from Ada Lovelace, who wrote the first computer program in the Victorian Age, to the cyberpunk Web designers of the 1990s, female visionaries have always been at the vanguard of technology and innovation. In fact, women turn up at the very beginning of every important wave in technology. They may have been hidden in plain sight, their inventions and contributions touching our lives in ways we don´t even realize, but they have always been part of the story. VICE reporter and YACHT lead singer Claire L. Evans finally gives these unsung female heroes their due with her insightful social history of the Broad Band, the women who made the internet what it is today. Seek inspiration from Grace Hopper, the tenacious mathematician who democratized computing by leading the charge for machine-independent programming languages after World War II. Meet Elizabeth ´´Jake´´ Feinler, the one-woman Google who kept the earliest version of the Internet online, and Stacy Horn, who ran one of the first-ever social networks on a shoestring out of her New York City apartment in the 1980s. Join the ranks of the pioneers who defied social convention to become database poets, information-wranglers, hypertext dreamers, and glass ceiling-shattering dot com-era entrepreneurs. This inspiring call to action shines a light on the bright minds whom history forgot, and shows us how they will continue to shape our world in ways we can no longer ignore. Welcome to the Broad Band. You´re next.
