No good deed goes unpunished. Marta, a novice witch from 1870 Flint Hills, Kansas, knows better than to reveal her magical powers to the religious townspeople, but when a young boy is critically injured, she has no choice. Her reward - the local pastor convinces his flock to burn her at the stake, along with two other suspected witches. To accomplish this, the pastor blocks their magic with a talisman. Working together, the three witches circumvent the talisman and Marta curses the evildoers to hell. Somehow managing to fry the preacher with his own fire before they escape, they are horrified to find the walking, talking skeleton of the man at their front door. Since he is seemingly indestructible, the witches have no other options but to try to fix him. One of the pastor’s flock, Sheriff Bourne, was conflicted in his part in capturing Marta as he realizes he feels more for her than he thinks he should. Caught up in a past that is quickly catching up to him, he works to bring a former friend and partner in crime to justice while also trying to protect the witches. As their quest to heal the skeleton progresses, Marta suspects the pastor isn’t everything he claims to be as she deals with her emerging and unwelcome desire for the sheriff. While she tries to unravel the flaming curse, Marta must decide which is more dangerous to her way of life - the preacher or her newfound feelings for Sheriff Bourne. 1. Language: English.

Outcast from Hell. Banished from Heaven. Lost on Earth.The battle of Armageddon was finally fought... and ended with no clear victor. Upon the mountain, the armies of Hell and Heaven beat each other into a bloody, uneasy standstill, leaving the Earth in ruins. Armageddon should have ended with Heaven winning, ushering in an era of peace. That´s what the prophecies said. Instead, the two armies--one of angels, one of demons--hunker down in the scorched planet, lick their wounds, and gear up for a prolonged war with no end in sight.In this chaos of warring armies and ruined landscapes, Laila doesn´t want to take sides. Her mother was an angel, her father a demon; she is outcast from both camps. And yet both armies need her, for with her mixed blood, Laila can become the ultimate spy... or ultimate soldier. As the armies of Heaven and Hell pursue her, Laila´s only war is within her heart--a struggle between her demonic and heavenly blood. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Heather Costa.

´´I don’t know what it is, but there’s something about you that makes it almost impossible for me to turn around and walk away. Before I change my mind, I think that we should do something about this obvious attraction that we have for one another.” She was shorter than me by a few inches and I felt like I could overcome her and have my way with her. I wasn’t going to do that and the fact that she had initiated first contact was almost too good to pass up.´´Be sure that is what you want to do. Once you open that door, there’s no closing it.” She moved her hands up to my head, caressing my skull and giving me every reason to succumb to my baser nature. ´´I don’t know if you really understand what you’re getting yourself into. Perhaps, you should think twice, before approaching a complete stranger and offering your body on a silver platter. The world is full of degenerates and those that would take advantage of you in that situation.” I could think of many things that I could do to her. She was practically begging for it. This was supposed to be a midmorning snack, but it was turning out to be a whole lot more than that. I was going to do something that I hadn’t done in years. It was something that had been denied me and rightfully so. WARNING - This book contains steamy romance scenes and is suitable for 18+ only. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Naomi Weiss.

Back in the 1980s, the Flaming Lips were just an alternative rock band from Oklahoma. They toured for a decade before finally hitting it big in 1993 with their song ´´She Don´t Use Jelly.” It was an ironic grunge anthem that landed them a cameo on Beverly Hills 90210. Then, in the spring of 2010, visitors to New York’s Museum of Modern Art could find Marina Abramovic, the self-described ´´grandmother of performance art,” holding court. She sat silently, all day, every day, for three months. Patrons could take turns sitting across from her for as long as they pleased. She had worked with a trainer and a nutritionist to endure long days of sitting. ´´If it’s comfortable, your mind can just go away. It’s not right. You have to be very aware.” After that, you probably have a Karim Rashid in your home, and you may not even know it. The industrial designer has 3,000 designs in production — including the Umbra ´´Oh Chair,” the Bobble Water Bottle, and the ´´Garbo” trash can — many featuring his signature rounded edges, cast in colorful plastics. ´´Design is about being very observant of behaviors,” Rashid explains, ´´the way we do things — and you can see solutions very easily.” And finally, Swedish-born, New Orleans-based singer-songwriter Theresa Andersson became an internet sensation a few years ago after she posted a video of her song ´´Na Na Na” to YouTube. Standing barefoot in her kitchen, surrounded by an array of instruments, Andersson plays each one, using a loop pedal to construct a breezy, effervescent pop song with a big sound.

A Flaming Arrow in God´s Bow is a mixture of narrative or prose poetry, autobiography, and thoughts on God. Jesus Christ plays a major role in this book, as is fitting since he´s really stepped up to playing a major role in my day to day life. I wrote this book with boldness, trying to show one person´s unique view on sin, forgiveness, hope, repentance, and reawakening of the spirit. I wanted the book to be unique, and I believe I accomplished that goal. Buy this book, and judge for yourself. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dan Caringer.
