Warning: This is meant for mature audiences only, 18+. A college student, Natalie Wright. She hasn't had it easy for years, emotionally. Her one safe haven is music. Soul-breaking, body-quaking lyrics sung in such a voice the emotions are conveyed onto you. Enter Ryan "Steele" Hurst, a chart-topping lead singer in the rock band Steele's Army. The band's songs are about cheapening the meaning of love. They project the bad-boy image. Can these two polar opposites coincide with each other on a summer tour, making it out unscathed? This is a novella. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dominick Masters. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/036020/bk_acx0_036020_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

At a small faith group meeting I was urged by the Holy Spirit to look into the meaning of Arimathea. You may recall it was Joseph of Arimathea who went to Pilate to get the body of Jesus for burial. Arimathea, A Lion Dead to the Lord, is mentioned in all four Gospels. and as I type this I can't recall in my 75 years of every hearing a sermon, or in any other book that discusses Jesus on the Cross as being a Lion and fighting Satan as Satan has to be fought. The Holy Spirit inspired me again into this undertaking, and has lead me to the resources needed to complete this project. A Lion Dead to the Lord relates how Jesus death on the cross was intended to teach us how we are to lives in the Holy Spirit. By doing this we live a life filled with love, joy, and peace. 1.

Three-time Hugo Award-winning author Allen Steele now imagines an alternate history rooted in an actual historical possibility: what if the race to space had occurred in the early days of WWII? It's 1941, and Wernher von Braun is ordered by his Fuehrer to abandon the V2 rocket and turn German resources in a daring new direction: construction of a manned orbital spacecraft capable of attacking the U.S. Work on the rocket - called Silbervogel - begins at Peenemunde. Though it is top secret, British intelligence discovers the plan, and brings word to Franklin Roosevelt. The American President determines that there is only one logical response: the U.S. must build a spacecraft capable of intercepting Silbervogel and destroying it. Robert Goddard, inventor of the liquid-fuel rocket, agrees to head the classified project. So begins a race against time - between two secret military programs and two brilliant scientists whose high-stakes competition will spiral into a deadly game of political intrigue and unforeseen catastrophes played to the death in the brutal skies above America. 1.
