Called on a dangerous assignment, leopard shifter Conner Vega returns to the Panama rain forest of his homeland, looking every bit the civilized male. But as a member of the most lethal of the shifter tribes, he doesn’t have a civilized bone in his body. He carries the scent of a wild animal in its prime, he bears the soul-crushing sins of past kills and he’s branded with the scars of shame inflicted by the woman he betrayed. Isabeau Chandler is a Borneo shifter who’s never forgiven Conner - or forgotten him. The mating urge is still with her, and when she crosses Conner’s path, passions burn like wildfire. But as Conner’s mission draws Isabeau closer, another betrayal lies waiting in the shadows - and it’s the most perilous and intimate one of all. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Phil Gigante.

Napoleon napped as rain spotted the habitat´s skylight (foreshadowing the storm which was moving east toward the Institute). He stood on one leg like some monstrous flamingo, head and neck pulled back and up, chin tucked against his breast. His long tapered tail stabbed straight out behind him, balancing him perfectly even in repose, and his forelimbs were bent as if held up in prayer. Tonight as any other, he´d fallen asleep listening to the footfalls of spiders. But now, his super-keen ears detected something else - something more than rain ticking off glass. It was a faint squeaking noise, like chittering rats. His eyelids parted moistly, revealing yellow crescents which shined in the dark, and he blinked several times, awakening. The sound was that of his nemesis. Drawing closer. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Conner Goff. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/104133/bk_acx0_104133_sample.mp3.

When FBI Special Agent Mariah Conners is injured in the line of duty, her partner, Quinn MacAllister, decides Bermuda is the perfect place for them to relax and recuperate. But it isnt called the Bermuda Triangle for nothing! First their charter plane goes down in a freak electrical storm, and theyre cast adrift with two spoiled teenagers and an elderly retired couple. Then they discover that the remote tropical island sheltering them holds a deadly secret-a unique sentient lifeform with incredible healing power for those few who can survive exposure to its potent spores. And to really cap things off, an old enemy is in hot pursuit! He wants the spores for himself, and hell kill anyone who gets in his way! Can Mac and Conners keep their companions alive and escape the mysterious island before he destroys them all? ----- Excerpt ----- Mac! Mariah stared in blank horror as the planes shattered nose sank beneath the choppy storm-darkened waves, leaving behind only a trail of shimmering bubbles. Mac! Someone was holding her back, pleading with her, clutching her arms in a fierce paralyzing grip. Let me go! she yelled, wrenching free. Hes my partner! The bubbles were slowly fading away. She dove, kicking hard, following the planes lazy descent. Icy darkness enveloped her. Her lungs began to ache and fiery spots danced before her eyes, but she couldnt give up, she just couldnt! More rising air bubbles suddenly exploded in her face, blinding her. Then her groping fingers brushed against something slippery. Macs leather jacket! One last frantic surge of energy moved her weakening legs, propelling her upward again, dragging his heavy weight behind her. Please, Mac, dont die! Cold rain suddenly lashed against her upturned face. Sputtering, she sucked in deep breaths of precious air. Lightning flared overhead, painfully bright against her dilated eyes. The iron bands constricting her chest slowly eased as she fought to keep Macs sagging head above the waves. Thunder rumbled in her ears as the heavy waves knocked her back and forth. Frigid water cascaded over her head, and she resurfaced with a strangled cough. Then something hard stung her flailing hand. A rope? She wrapped stiffening fingers around it. New energy surged through her aching frame when Reubens hand locked around Macs limp arm. Hurry! she shouted. Hes not breathing! Esther leaned out perilously far to help, and slowly they hauled his long body into the raft. Then it was Conners turn, and she wanted to sob with relief as the ocean reluctantly loosened its death-grip on her thrashing legs. Mac was sprawled face-down in the sloshing raft. Help me roll him over! she gasped. Oh God, his lips were blue, and his open eyes were glazed. He cant die, not yet! Helpful hands steadied her as she bent to force air down his windpipe. Again. And again! Breathe, thrust ... Breathe, thrust ... Breathe, thrust ... Suddenly his limp body convulsed, and a gush of salty water erupted from his open mouth. Conners tilted his head to one side and let the water drain. Breathe, Mac! she ordered, pushing hard against his ribs one last time. Come on , damn it! Breathe! He jerked again, and this time she heard the sweet rush of air filling his lungs. His chest began to rise and fall in a slow, rhythmic cadence as his taut muscles relaxed. Another huge wave crashed into the raft, drenching them with icy spray. How long will this storm last? Reuben shouted in her ear. His aging face was drawn with fear. The raft is filling up with water fast! Emergency rafts are built to handle a lot of water! she yelled back. Just hang on! Suddenly the black clouds and shrieking winds vanished. For one ageless, nauseating moment, the entire world seemed to whirl in dizzying spirals. Then a soft, warm rain began to patter down around them. She bolted upright and stared wildly around. What the hell... It was impossible. Fierce squalls didnt just appear and then disappear in the blink of an eye. But the violent electrical storm was gone. The gigantic crashing waves were gone. And as they watched in stunned disbelief, the hazy gray clouds overhead simply melted away, and the golden sun began to shine down from a perfectly clear blue sky. The ocean around them was calm, gentle...and empty. The other life raft was nowhere to be seen.
