Sly ´´Bullhorn” Brodsky wished winning the heart of Samantha Drake was as easy as protecting his quarterback. Bull tried to live down his rep as a womanizer. Locker room chatter had elevated him to the level of ´´player”. But Samantha Drake, stunning sister of a teammate, didn’t want to have anything to do with him. Or did she? On his best behavior, Bull pulled out all the stops to woo the reluctant beauty. Samantha is overcoming her doubts about Bull until Tiffany, a woman from his past shows up. The blonde brings more than one kind of trouble. Will it threaten only Sam’s heart or her life, too?A taste of the book:Samantha Drake was quality....She was of the ´´bring ’em home to mom” variety. He was lucky to have her attention. How many bruisers like him ended up with classy women? None he knew of. Maybe Bullhorn Brodsky, whose booming voice could be heard in the next county, and who could bring a three-hundred-pounder to his knees, had a shot at a relationship with this exceptional woman. Don’t blow it, Sly, he’d told himself a thousand times.Samantha closed the front door and leaned back against it. Her pulse was racing, her face was hot, and she was a bit breathless. She had never expected the big man to be able to kiss like that. Of course, if he was a major seducer, that would make sense. But he appeared to be real sweet. He’d helped her move all day then taken her to dinner-his only reward a couple of steamy kisses. Doesn’t fit with the image of a major player. He tasted like café au lait, and he smelled like a woodsy aftershave mixed with his own, unique scent. When her fingers had tightened around his biceps, a tingle had shot all the way through her. The man was solid steel. Except his warm skin. She had braced herself against his chest. She had wanted him to make love to her. A trip to Nirvana in the arms of the offensive lineman would have been heaven. But her rational mind had s 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Roberts.

We RPG game masters have a lot of tools to help us run our role-playing games. Our monster books and bestiaries give us piles of foes to throw at our adventurers. The various guides for game masters often give us non-player characters, treasures, and story-building tips. One of the hardest parts of game mastering, however, is coming up with interesting adventure locations for our characters to explore. These locations need to be fantastic, detailed places that capture the minds of our players every session we run. Good locations are hard to improvise and often hard to strip out of a fully fleshed-out adventure. Sly Flourish´s Fantastic Locations is an audiobook of 20 system-agnostic locations you can drop into your favorite fantasy role-playing game. Each location builds on a fantastic theme, such as a mysterious ancient structure under the ice, a cursed castle of a mad king, a fallen celestial fortress, or a dwarven mine that cracked into the tomb of a dead god. Thanks to the support of 779 backers on Kickstarter, this audiobook was expanded to include a total of 20 locations each with full-color artwork included as a PDF along with this audiobook. This audiobook helps you fill your mind with the lore of these fantastic locations so you can build fantastic worlds for your players.

Conway is a creative genius. (Martin Gardner) An unabashed original, John Horton Conway is Archimedes, Mick Jagger, Salvador Dali, and Richard Feynman all rolled into one - a singular mathematician with a rock star´s charisma, a sly sense of humor, a polymath´s promiscuous curiosity, and a burning desire to explain everything about the world to everyone in it. Born in Liverpool in 1937, Conway found fame as a barefoot Cambridge professor. He discovered the Conway groups in mathematical symmetry and invented the aptly named surreal numbers as well as the cult classic Game of Life - more than a cool fad, Life demonstrates how simplicity generates complexity, and the game provides an analogy for all mathematics and the entire universe. Moving to Princeton in 1987, as a mathemagician he deployed cards, ropes, dice, coat hangers, and even the odd Slinky as props to extend his winning imagination and share his mathy obsessions with signature contagion. He is a jet-setting ambassador at large for the beauties of all things mathematical. Genius at Play is an intimate investigation into the mind of an endearing genius, laying bare Conway´s personal and professional idiosyncrasies. The intimacy comes courtesy of the man himself. He generously granted Roberts full access, though not without the occasional grudge and grumble: ´´Oh hell,´´ he´d say. ´´You´re not going to put that in the book. Are you?´´ PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1. Language: English.

BBC Radio has a unique heritage when it comes to Shakespeare. Since 1923, when the newly formed company broadcast its first full-length play, generations of actors and producers have honed and perfected the craft of making Shakespeare to be heard. In this story of evil cunning perverting a once noble mind, radio captures Iago´s sly hints and boasts to the audience with shocking clarity. The listener is led along an emotional path that grips with fascinating horror until the play´s inevitably tragic conclusion. Revitalised, original, and comprehensive, this is Shakespeare for the new millennium. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ray Fearon, Anastasia Hille, Full Cast.
