In the chaotic aftermath of 9/11, Secret Service agent Cameron Roberts and her lover, first daughter Blair Powell, must contend with recriminations from within the government and danger from without as they struggle to uncover those who betrayed the nation and nearly claimed Blair’s life. The hunt for those who betrayed the nation is a very personal quest for Secret Service agent Cameron Roberts because the traitors targeted her lover, first daughter Blair Powell, in a secret assassination attempt. Despite reprisals from within the Justice Department and criticism in the press, Cam is determined to bring those responsible to justice. Her search takes her deep into the shadow worlds of counter-intelligence where even a friend might be a foe. While Cam struggles to uncover the traitor’s trail, Blair wages her own war to prevent the woman she loves from becoming a scapegoat during the chaotic aftermath of 9/11. Not just honor, but their future together, is on the line as Blair and Cam join forces with their loyal friends to strike back at the terrorists. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Abby Craden.

The face of terror is hard to recognize - especially when it´s homegrown. Blair Powell is set to join her father on the campaign trail even though a domestic terrorist group has already launched one attack on President Andrew Powell´s life. The orchestrators of the assassination attempt are still at large, and Andrew´s opponent is a popular ultra-conservative with questionable ties to the radical right. Blair´s wife, DHS Deputy Director Cameron Roberts, has been charged with the task of tracking down those responsible for the attack, while secretly searching for proof that a powerful senator is involved in treason. Cam has an ace in the hole no one knows about, however - an agent deep undercover in the stronghold of a radical militia group, FBI SA Loren McElroy. Cam´s biggest challenge is running the terrorists to ground without getting McElroy and her renegade handler, Skylar Dunbar, killed in the cross fire. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Abby Craden.

´´Come on, Leon, let me walk you to your car.´´ Shelia´s makeup was smeared and her white shirt drenched, her nubile perky pink nipples visible through her shirt. She looked down and the two started laughing. ´´Sure. I´ve got a black T-shirt in my car. I promise I won´t look.´´ They both giggled with delight at the thought, because even at 21, no one except Leon and Ian had the honor of having seen her body. She had freely given herself to Leon multiple times and naturally felt completely at ease with Leon. Once the two made it to the old Toyota Tercel, Shelia joined him in the passenger seat. The windows quickly fogged up as the two passionately kissed. ´´Lee, baby, I can´t do this. You know I´ll always love you, and I´m always thinking of you, but my life is so different now, and I haven´t even seen you in three years. You haven´t called, you haven´t come by - nothing. I can´t,´´ Shelia said as she changed into one of Leon´s T-shirts, leaving the other in the passenger seat as she hurriedly got out of the car and ran back to her sorority house. That was the last time they saw each other...´´ Warning: This content is not suitable for all ages. 18+ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rebecca Wolfe.

Her name is Sunny Randall, a Boston P.I. and former cop, a college graduate, an aspiring painter, a divorcee, and the owner of a miniature bullterrier named Rosie. Hired by a wealthy family to locate their teenage daughter, Sunny is tested by the parents´ preconceived notion of what a detective should be. With the help of underworld contacts she tracks down the runaway Millicent, who has turned to prostitution, rescues her from her pimp, and finds herself, at thirty-four, the unlikely custodian of a difficult teenager when the girl refuses to return to her family. But Millicent´s problems are rooted in much larger crimes than running away, and Sunny, now playing the role of bodyguard, is caught in a shooting war with some very serious mobsters. She turns for help to her ex-husband, Richie, himself the son of a mob family, and to her dearest friend, Spike, a flamboyant and dangerous gay man. Heading this unlikely alliance, Sunny must solve at least one murder, resolve a criminal conspiracy that reaches to the top of state government, and bring Millicent back into functional young womanhood.
All Cameron Roberts and Blair Powell want is a small, intimate wedding, but the paparazzi and a domestic terrorist have other plans. First Daughter Blair Powell and her lover Cameron Roberts, newly appointed deputy director of the Homeland Security Office, escape to a ski chalet in the Rockies after a harrowing attack by members of a domestic terrorism organization. Under orders from the White House, Blair reluctantly allows a member of the "enemy camp;" investigative reporter Dana Barnett, to join her inner circle in the hopes of limiting her media exposure. Dana isn´t any happier about being pulled from her coverage of the escalating conflict in the Middle East to write a society "fluff piece;" although the presence of beautiful Dr. Emory Constantine does make the assignment a little more enticing. With the nation under attack, the world on the verge of war, and their personal lives the focus of intense public scrutiny, Cam and Blair come under fire both publicly and privately when an old nemesis resurfaces intent on finishing his holy mission - to kill Blair Powell. 1.

´´Your birth is a revolution. You chose to be born like this.´´ Tired of the closet lifestyle, arranged marriages, (dis)honor(able) killings happening all around me, in the UK I decided to do something about it. Guys I knew or had dated were marrying someone of the opposite sex, fueling up on drug induced sex orgies, or selling themselves on Grindr to find validation whilst suffocating with shame. The guilt and shame of being gay and South Asian. Yes, for LGBTI people of color, the story is still the same. Stuck in archaic times, families hold on to izaat (honor), societal pressure, and the need to conform. So I turned to spirituality for solace. After a yoga teacher´s course, life coaching certificates, and many grueling silent meditation retreats later I felt like myself again. And that´s when I decided to write Bollywood Gay, a revolutionary, fiery, and necessary bible for those wanting an authentic life. The book has an activist slant, urging people first to sort their own issues before moving onto the bigger task of bringing LGBTI rights in South Asia. It is based on the Law of Attraction principles, with each chapter finishing with an action sheet, intended to dive into the mind, to allow the listener to pierce through blockages, limiting beliefs, feelings, goals, and desires. Do you want the man of your dreams? Do you want to come out to your family? Do you want to live a happier life? All the action sheets will spearhead you on to that effect. The book aims to be positive, motivational, inspirational, and eye opening. I want to remove the years of self-victimization and external blame so you can reclaim your inner power. I want you to realize that you are the change and can do it in an instant with each and every thought, feeling, and word you use. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Manjinder Singh Sidhu.
