The Summer of No Attachments

The Summer of No Attachments

Author: Lori Foster Narrator: Marni Penning Release Date: 01/06/2021

"[A] satisfying page-turner, complete with adorable animals and an idyllic summer setting."-Publishers Weekly on The Summer of No Attachments Summer flings with no strings mean nobody gets hurt. At least, that was the plan… After putting the brakes on her dead-end relationship, local veterinarian Ivey Anders is ready to soak up this summer on her own terms. The way she sees it, no dating means no disappointment. Why complicate life with anything long-term? But when she meets Corbin Meyer-and his troubled young son, Justin-Ivey's no-strings strategy threatens to unravel before she can put it into practice. Trust doesn't come easy for Ivey's best friend, Hope Mage, a veterinary-clinic assistant who's affected by an incident that's colored every relationship she's had. Though Hope's happy for Ivey, she can't quite open her own heart to the possibility of love. Not just yet… Maybe not ever. Soon, however, she's faced with a dilemma-Corbin's older brother, Lang. He's charming, he's kind…and he may just be the reason Hope needs to finally tear down her walls. And as the sweet summer months unspool, the two friends discover love won't give up on them so easily. "Brimming with heart, heat and humor." -Jill Shalvis, New York Times bestselling author, on Worth the Wait

Fall of Angels (1 of 2) [Dramatized Adaptation]: The Saga of Recluce 6

'L. E. Modesitt, Jr.'s best-selling fantasy novels set in the magical world of Recluce have established a standard of entertainment in contemporary fantasy. Each Recluce novel tells an independent story that nevertheless reverberates through all the other Recluce novels to deepen and enrich the listener's experience. Now, in Fall of Angels, Modesitt moves deep into Recluce's past to chronicle the founding of the Empire of the Legend, the almost mythological domain ruled by women warriors on the highland plateau of the continent of Candar. He tells the story from the point of view of Nylan, the engineer and builder whose job it is to raise a great tower on the plateau known as the Roof of the World. Here the exiled women warriors will live and survive to fulfill their destiny. Here a revolutionary new society will be born...if Nylan can get the tower built and defenses in place before the rulers of the lowland nations come with their armies to obliterate them all. And if Nylan can learn to control the magical powers that are growing within him. Performed by Ken Jackson, Christopher Walker as Nylan, Eva Wilhelm, Jessica Lauren Ball, Zeke Alton, and Lydia Kraniotis, Alejandro Ruiz, Matthew Schleigh, Lise Bruneau, Marni Penning, Danny Gavigan, Rob McFadyen, Nora Achrati, Holly Adams, James Konicek, Laura C.

Altruism [Dramatized Adaptation]: Playing Gods 3

Altruism [Dramatized Adaptation]: Playing Gods 3

'Playing Gods is a spectacularly action-packed cosmic fantasy series, laced with edgy humor, social satire and imaginative world-building. Xriah and Vylis, two warriors with diametrically opposed morality and empowered with superhuman abilities to match, are repeatedly thrust into wildly varying worlds to savagely do battle on behalf of their respective deities. Themes, concepts and tropes from the genres of gaming fantasy are reinterpreted and explored in depth in Playing Gods, with complex emotional consequences for the beings who just might live in such a reality. Dragonball Z meets Game of Thrones, with a dose of the anarchic meta-humor of Deadpool. Playing Gods: Altruism is Book Three of the series. When his virtuous opponent turns even more callous than he is, Vylis, the ostensible bad guy and playfully psychopathic audience favorite, begins to smell a rat in the walls and starts punching holes in his carefully constructed reality to see what's really on the other side. The creator of that reality will not be pleased. Performed by David Coyne, Chris Rohan, Colleen Delany, Richard Rohan, Jessica Lauren Ball, Marni Penning, Michael Lee Taylor, Tia Shearer, Ken Jackson, Henry Kramer, David Jourdan, and Kimberly Gilbert, Nanette Savard, Danny Gavigan, Bradley Smith, Jeff Allin, Mary C.

Bloody Acquisitions [Dramatized Adaptation]: Fred, the Vampire Accountant 3

Bloody Acquisitions [Dramatized Adaptation]: Fred, the Vampire Accountant 3

'With a thriving parahuman accounting practice, a steady relationship, and a circle of trusted friends, Fred's undead life has become more enjoyable than his normal one ever was. Unfortunately, it also seems that he's no longer the only vampire to appreciate the up-and-coming city of Winslow, Colorado. A new clan of vampires is moving in, and they aren't well known for tolerating outsiders in their territory. Now, Fred must cope with the growing presence-and threat-of other vampires even as he struggles to keep up with his business's demands and make time for his friends. Between hidden parahuman towns, crazed vampire hunters, quarreling mages, and the world's least subtle spy, it will take all of Fred's wiles just to keep his head above water. And as the new clan sinks their fangs deeper and deeper into his city, the undead accountant is faced with a choice between two equally unappealing options: flee his home, or stand against an entire clan of fellow vampires. Performed by Christopher Walker, Nora Achrati, Marni Penning, Yasmin Tuazon, Shanta Parasuraman, Steven Carpenter, Carolyn Kashner, Christopher Graybill, Anthony Palmini, Laura C Harris, Danny Gavigan, Matthew Bassett, Scott McCormick, Alejandro Ruiz, Bradley Smith, Colleen Delany, Holly Adams, Michael John Casey, Terence Aselford and Zeke Alton.'

A Radical Guide for Women with ADHD: Embrace Neurodiversity, Live Boldly, and Break Through Barriers

A Radical Guide for Women with ADHD: Embrace Neurodiversity, Live Boldly, and Break Through Barriers

Author: Michelle Frank, Psy.D., Sari Solden Ms Narrator: Marni Penning Release Date: 01/02/2021

If you are a woman with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), you've probably known-all your life-that you're different. As girls, we learn which behaviors, thinking, learning, and working styles are preferred, which are accepted and tolerated, and which are frowned upon. These preferences are communicated in innumerable ways-from media and books to our first-grade classroom to conversations with our classmates and parents. Over the course of a lifetime, women with ADHD learn through various channels that the way they think, work, speak, relate, and act does not match up with the preferred way of being in the world. In short, they learn that difference is bad. And, since these women know that they are different, they learn that they are bad. It's time for a change. A Radical Guide for Women with ADHD is the first guided workbook for women with ADHD designed to break the cycle of negative self-talk and shame-based narratives that stem from the common and limiting belief that brain differences are character flaws. In this unique guide, you'll find a groundbreaking approach that blends traditional ADHD treatment with contemporary treatment methods, such as acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), to help you untangle yourself from the beliefs that have kept you from reaching your potential in life.
