How can you be 25 and not know you´re gay? Billy Ballew runs from that question. A high school dropout, barely able to read until he taught himself, Billy´s life is driven by his need to help support his parents as a construction worker, put his sisters through college, coach his Little League team, and not think about being a three-time loser in the engagement department. Being terrified of taking tests keeps Billy from getting the contractor´s license he so desires, and fear of his mother´s judgment blinds Billy to what could make him truly happy. Then, in preparation for his sister´s big wedding, Billy meets Shaz - alias Chase Phillips - a rising-star celebrity stylist who defines the word gay. To Shaz, Billy embodies everything he´s ever wanted - stalwart, honest, brave - but even if Billy turns out to be gay, he could never endure the censure he´d get for being with a queen like Shaz. How can two men with so little in common find a way to be together? Can the Stylist of the Year end up with the Knight of Ocean Avenue? 1. Language: English. Narrator: K.C. Kelly.

Arthur Machen’s novella explores the disturbing consequences of toying with the line between the earthly world and the spiritual realm. The Great God Pan centers around an ominous woman named Helen, who lives in the woods and invites morbid happenings. The book faced harsh censure upon its publication in 1894 for its explicit content, but today it is considered a hallmark of horror fiction. Stephen King himself called it ´´one of the best horror stories ever written”, making it essential reading for any dedicated fans of the genre. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrea Giordani.

1891...Jolene Crawford Crenshaw, heiress and Boston socialite, went from her family home directly to Landonmore upon her marriage, the mansion she shared with her handsome and charismatic husband. She´d never in her life worried in the slightest over anything as crass as the dollars required to maintain that home or the lifestyle she´d been born to. Her extensive yearly wardrobe, the stables and the prime horseflesh within it, even the solid silver forks and knifes that graced her table, were expected and required to maintain the social standing that she´d cultivated over the years. But suddenly she was a widow with little money and just her pride and her secrets to keep her upright. Max Shelby made his fortune in oil wells and cattle but lost the love of his life the day his wife died, over 10 years ago. Now, his happy, carefree, little girl needs instruction and guidance as she grows into a young lady and his dream of becoming a senator from his adopted state of Texas seems out of reach with few political or social connections. The right wife would solve both problems. As it happens his sister knows of a woman, a recent widow, charming, beautiful and socially astute, but in reduced circumstances, who may want to begin again. Max signed the wedding contract sight unseen. Will Jolene be able to shed her sorrows, anger and fears to begin anew away from the censure and hidden tragedy that marred her life? Is her new husband, confident, strong and capable Max Shelby, the man, the only man, to see past her masks to find the woman beneath? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Meghan Kelly.

Le roman de Raphaël Jerusalmy commence là où calent les livres d´histoire. François Villon, premier poète des temps modernes et brigand notoire, croupit dans les geôles de Louis XI en attendant son exécution. Quand il reçoit la visite d´un émissaire du roi, il est loin d´en espérer plus qu´un dernier repas. Rebelle, méfiant, il passe pourtant un marché avec l´évêque de Paris et accepte une mission secrète qui consiste d´abord à convaincre un libraire et imprimeur de Mayence de venir s´installer à Paris pour mieux combattre la censure et faciliter la circulation des idées progressistes réprouvées par Rome. Un premier pas sur un chemin escarpé qui mènera notre poète, flanqué de son fidèle acolyte coquillard maître Colin, jusqu´aux entrailles les plus fantasmatiques de la Jérusalem d´en bas, dans un vaste jeu d´alliances, de complots et de contre-complots qui met en marche les forces de l´esprit contre la toute-puissance des dogmes et des armes, pour faire triompher l´humanisme et la liberté. 1.

La procrastination fait partie du quotidien de milliers de personnes. Des gens comme vous et moi qui se laissent prendre dans le tourbillon de la vie. Métro, boulot, dodo. Eduquer, laver, se reposer. Et on recommence. Cependant, il y a une petite voix qui se fait parfois entendre pour remettre en doute votre routine quotidienne. C´est celle de l´insatisfaction. Elle vous fait remarquer que la vie peut vous apporter davantage et vous fait miroiter la minuscule fenêtre de l´occasion à saisir. Cette ouverture semble si loin, hors de portée et, du même coup, si invitante. Imaginez un instant avoir le courage d´écouter votre petite voix, de la respecter avec ses idées de grandeur. Accordez-vous, pour un bref instant, un moment de rêverie sans censure... Imaginez-vous avec une confiance solide comme le roc, la certitude que ´´tout ira bien´´, que tout ce que vous touchez se transformera en or. Que faites-vous ? Quels sont vos rêves, vos plans, vos actions ? Vous avez déjà franchi le premier pas vers une vie meilleure. Franchissez-en un autre dès aujourd´hui et CESSEZ DE TOURNER EN ROND ! 1. French.

When graduate student Lucy Larson sees her hot professor, thesis advisor, and employer at a spanking party, she promptly runs and hides. Later, kicking herself for her cowardice, she realizes she missed the opportunity to bring her spanking fantasies to life and sets her sights on seducing the hunky scientist. He ignores her antics until she accidentally ruins his research experiment and then he bends her over his desk for a dozen strokes of the cane. Dr. Todd Daniels would like nothing more than to get involved with his smart and sexy lab assistant, but doing so would be unethical and risk censure from the university. Still, when she deserves a serious spanking, he delivers. Delving into a flaming hot love affair, they must hide their relationship and navigate department politics, a search for his child, given up for adoption years before, and Lucy´s insecurities about his commitment. He wants to make it all work, but he isn´t sure if their unbalanced power dynamic has longevity as a relationship. In the end, all mentors fall off their pedestals and students must spread their own wings. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Hollie Jackson.
