Nika, the pack's newest scout, wants nothing more than to please his Alpha. When he discovers a beautiful, and very sick, stranger in the woods outside Los Lobos, he finds himself torn between his duty and his hormones. The stranger carries a deadly wolf virus - one that hasn't been seen in the Black Hills in ages. Kimi, a Lakota Sioux, is dying. She's transported herself forward in time, hoping to find the cure to the illness that's stricken her tribe. Her only chance for survival is to trust Nika, even if she's not used to having help. To find the cure and save the pack, Nika and Kimi must travel to a time long ago - before the Lakota populated the Black Hills - a time filled with dangers neither can imagine. Their growing attraction may save them, or kill them both. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Terrence Clowe. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/072948/bk_acx0_072948_sample.mp3.

Hope and practical help for Lyme disease sufferers everywhere. More than 300,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with Lyme disease every year, and many, many more are suffering from Lyme without knowing it. Katina Makris was one of those undiagnosed individuals who nearly died from the disease. At the peak of her career, classical homeopath and health-care columnist Katina Makris was stricken with a mysterious "flu". Only after five years of torment - two completely bedridden - and devastating blows to her professional and family life was Katina's illness finally diagnosed as Lyme disease. Out of the Woods not only shares the brutality of Lyme disease through the telling of Katina's story, but it also describes her incredible journey back to full recovery, giving thousands of Lyme sufferers hope for their uncertain and frightening futures.

Putting her homeopathic training to work, part two of the book details the nuts and bolts of Lyme disease, offering listeners up-to-date information on Eastern and Western treatments. Listeners will learn about the importance of antibiotics as well as acupuncture, homeopathic remedies, energy restoration, and a path to emotional healing - affirming that complete healing from any disease encompasses body, mind, and spirit. 1.

Change is inevitable. It's heading for Earth at 12,000 miles per hour...and it will land virtually undetected. For Jack McAllister, a young writer who has finally launched a career for himself, it begins tragically: his estranged father, a former NASA engineer, dies suddenly at his home in Merriweather, Indiana, leaving Jack's Alzheimer's-stricken mother a widow. But in the wake of personal heartbreak, he's confronted by an even more astonishing event - the covert landing of an alien machine in the forest just a few miles outside of town. Now Jack must unmask the true purpose of the otherworldly device that has begun a detailed environmental survey of the woods. Aided by the town's young and resilient female deputy sheriff, he soon discovers that the alien scout is only one small part of a much larger operation, and the countdown to a terrifying global catastrophe is about to take place. Drawing deeply from his father's scientific influence, all while attempting to avoid the snares of a sexy, seductive, and scheming local TV reporter, Jack uncovers-and ultimately finds himself an unwilling component of-an alien plan set to terminate life on Earth as we know it. 1.

Mistakes so big they seem like fodder for The Onion—but they really happened! From memorable disasters such as New Coke, the XFL, and Tiger Woods’ marriage to less-remembered failures such as Yugo, Cop Rock, and Microsoft’s BOB, Worst Ideas Ever revisits history’s biggest blunders. Whether it’s a pop culture failure the likes of Dennis Miller’s disastrous run on Monday Night Football, a political one such as John Edwards’ odd decision to run for president while cheating on his cancer-stricken wife, or a technological misstep such as Apple’s Newton OS, Worst Ideas Ever uncovers the ridiculous stories behind mistakes so huge, you’ll have to constantly remind yourself that they actually happened. Moving from Mariah Carey’s “performance” in Glitter to the Minnesota Vikings decision to trade away their future for an aging Herschel Walker, Worst Ideas Ever offers the real stories behind some of the dumbest things ever done. Whether it was ego (Michael Jordan leaving basketball for baseball), greed (nobody questioning their impossibly high returns when investing with Bernie Madoff) or simple stupidity (Jay Leno moving to 10 p.m.), Worst Ideas Ever brings it all back in hilarious detail. 1.

In the autumn of 1960, Angie Glass is living an idyllic life in her Wisconsin hometown. At 21, she's married to charming, handsome Paul, and has just given birth to a baby boy. But one phone call changes her life forever.
