Erin is a young psychologist, with no time for anything but her work, and unable to remember anything about her past. She leads an uneventful life, but a lonely one, in which she secretly wishes for a soulmate. Conner is an unusual patient who approaches her, thrusting her into a strange world of darkness that runs beneath our own. He believes himself to be a creature of legend - a werewolf. But he also draws Erin with a roguish charm, and an irresistible feeling that seems to bind them together. Conner desperately tries to save her from an unknown evil that pursues her with a relentless passion that crosses centuries, an evil that once took her very soul away, somewhere in Erin's lost memories. As she becomes more entwined in a series of events that will remind her of who she really is, will she make it away from the oncoming darkness unscathed? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Anisha Dadia.

A fifth-generation native of Newport, Rhode Island, Herb McCormick has been racing and cruising from above the Arctic Circle to Antarctica and chronicling his adventures and travels in magazines, newspapers and on the Internet for over three decades. An anthology of his best profiles and articles, including first person accounts of sailing in such classic events as the Sydney-Hobart Race and rounding Cape Horn, Gone to the Sea is an eclectic collection of stories that range from a prophetic cruise with his daughter; to an in-depth post mortem of solo sailor Mike Plant s final, mysterious voyage; to what it's really like to spend a hectic day with Americas Cup legend Dennis Conner. The former editor-in-chief of Cruising World magazine and yachting correspondent for the New York Times, McCormick has notched over 75,000 offshore miles in his sailing career, including the historic 2009-2010 Around the Americas expedition that circumnavigated North and South America via the Northwest Passage and Cape Horn. As an award-winning journalist, he s been honored with the National Marine Manufacturer Association's prestigious Director's Award and the Boat US Monk Farnham Award for Excellence in Editorial Commentary, and his stories and articles have earned numerous first place prizes in Boating Writers International's annual writing contest.
