Show me what will make me happy.Â The next thing she knows, tires screech and metal collides, everything goes black. But when Mae gasps awake...sheâs on an airplane bound for Utah, where she begins the same holiday all over again. With one hilarious disaster after another sending her back to the plane, Mae must figure out how to break free of the strange time loop - and finally get her true love under the mistletoe.Â Jam-packed with yuletide cheer, an unforgettable cast of characters, and Christina Laurenâs trademark âdownright hilariousâ (Helen Hoang, author of The Bride Test) hijinks, this swoon-worthy romantic listen will make you believe in the power of wishes and the magic of the holidays.

The galaxy follows a logical structure. Legion Dark Operator Kel Turner believed that. To know the order of battle and how an enemy unit was organized was to know its purpose and how to destroy it. That logic existed down to the smallest scale, down to what made up life itself. To know a moleculeâs structure was to know its function - they were one and the same. It was no different for Kel. He was Dark Ops and Dark Ops was him. Down to his last cell and very soul. But the covert action arm of the Legion is changing. And so is he. And if Dark Ops is no longer the same, how could Kel be Kel? From fighting a gray war against a cunning adversary bent on genocide, to slogging through a jungle hell full of rabid dog-men, Kel won't stop until the mission is complete. Kel was the mission. But if the day comes when there would no longer be a Dark Ops for Kel, what would his mission be then? Who would he become?

Every day, he stood exactly where he was directed. He listened for his number, shouted his answer in the freezing cold. He was ragged, and he was starving, but he was alive. He was one of the fortunate ones whom fate had left standing. And he needed to stay that way. For Hannah. Berlin, 1941. Felix Thalberg, a printerâs apprentice, has the weight of the world on his shoulders. His beloved city is changing under Nazi rule, and at home things are no better - Felixâs father hasnât left the house since he was forced to wear a yellow star, and his mother grows thinner every day. Then one night, Felix meets a mysterious young woman in a crowded dance hall, and his life is changed forever. Hannah is like a rush of fresh air into his gloomy, stagnant life, and Felix finds himself instantly, powerfully infatuated with her. But when he tries to find her again, sheâs vanished without a trace. Was Hannah taken away by the Gestapo and held prisoner...or worse? When Felix himself is imprisoned in Sachsenhausen concentration camp, his thoughts are only for her safety. And when a life-threatening injury lands him on the ward of Dr. Max Eichel - a Nazi medical officer with a sadistic reputation - his love for his lost Hannah sees him through the pain. Until one day, Dr. Eichel brings his pretty, young wife to tour the camp, and Felixâs world is thrown off-kilter. Framed in the hospital window, he sees - impossibly - the same girl he met that fateful night...her wrist in the vice-like grip of the deathly calm SS Officer. And itâs clear Hannah recognizes him at once - there is no mistaking her expression, she has been dreaming of him too.... A gripping and beautiful wartime love story about two people facing impossible odds - heartbreaking, moving, and unforgettable. Perfect for fans of The Tattooist of Auschwitz, We Were the Lucky Ones, and The Alice Network.

Too Good to Be True is an obsessive, addictive love story for fans of Lisa Jewell and The Wife Upstairs, from Carola Lovering, the beloved author of Tell Me Lies. Skye Starling is overjoyed when her boyfriend, Burke Michaels, proposes after a whirlwind courtship.

Do I want to spend my summer with my vicious classmates at Bloodstone University - better known as Villain Academy? No, thank you. But I've got to find a way to tackle my enemies before they try to destroy me again, and the trail to potential answers starts there. I've had it with taking the high road, though. Come at me, and you'd better believe I'll hit you back just as hard. Maybe that'll mean I have to tap into my dark magic instincts more than I'd ever have planned to, but I'm not letting one more person I care about get hurt. That also means I've got to steer clear of the one guy I completely trust, or I might ruin his life, too. With two of the other scions vying for my attention and the last shifting his campaign against me in an unexpected way, I've got my hands full as it is. I can't say whether I'll survive everything this summer has in store. All I know for sure is it's going to be a hot one. Sinister Wizardry is the third book in a university-age paranormal academy series. Expect magical villainy, a tough heroine who bends to no oneâs will, a dollop of steam, and a slow-burn enemies-to-lovers reverse harem romance where there'll be no choosing required.

Magick is real. It's also highly illegal - not that I'm worried about that. Sure, I heal faster than most, and I've got a sixth sense for brewing tea that can fix just about any problem, but my cafe isn't exactly a hotbed of paranormal activity. At least it wasn't...until some psycho attacked me and woke up the freaky, forbidden magick inside, earning me a one-way ticket to jail. Now, a covert magickal university is offering me a deal: my freedom in exchange for help with the Tarot prophecies - cryptic predictions they believe hold the key to stopping a deadly apocalyptic plot. Predictions only I can decipher. Because the witch who divined them? She died years ago. I should know. She was my mother. Grab your grimoires, girls. Magick school's officially in session. All I have to do now is master my crazy powers, decode the doomsday prophecies, outwit a mean-girl coven that puts the psycho in psychic, and survive the temptations of one very naughty professor and three scorching-hot, overprotective mages shadowing my every move. There's only one problem. If I'm right about the prophecies? Survival isn't in the cards for any of us. Contains mature themes.

I didnât mean to see him naked - it was an accident. It had to be, right? Because Noah McCormick and I have never been anything more than friends. In all the years Iâve known him, heâs never once laid a finger on me. And even though he was a cute lifeguard at 16 and a hotter-than-hell sheriffâs deputy at 34, he's always been that protective guy I could trust to keep his hands to himself. I never wanted to mess with that. Until I walked in on him getting out of the shower and saw his hard, muscular body totally bare and dripping wet. At that moment I never wanted to mess with anything so badly in my entire life. I should have covered my eyes. Said I was sorry. At the very least, I could have handed him a towel. After all, I was only in town for a few days, and he was just doing me a favor by escorting me to my sisterâs wedding. It wasnât a real date. But I didnât apologize. And he didnât cover up. (Talk about a hot mess.) After all those years of being just friends, suddenly weâre insatiable. Heâs made it clear heâs not interested in romance. Which is fine with me becauseÂ Iâve got a plane ticket back to my real life at the end of the week.Â Itâs all in fun...or is it?

Even if they can win her love, a new evil is rising on the Colony, and someone close to Maxim will be its first victim.

My sister lives to ruin my life. That isnât fair. Itâs not her fault our dance instructor called me fat and awkward, and our parents funded Lisaâs training because I had a better head for business.

The trail starts at the Spearmint Rhino - an upscale gentlemenâs club five minutes off the Las Vegas strip, where a group of hot Aussie soccer players are having a bachelor party. Hello, Chance Bateman! My sister still wears his jersey as a nightgown.

Alternating points of view and the timeless setting of an end-of-school party make this a compelling listen. Those who download it cannot stop listening.

Iâm screwed. Pippa just showed up uninvited with plans of staying the weekend. I can hardly handle an hour with her, let alone two days. Despite more than a year of dodging her, nothing has changed. Sheâs the only woman I want. Smart and sexy and bold. My best friendâs little sister. Forbidden. Denying my desire for her is torture. And she doesnât make it easy; she wants me, too. The thing is, making her mine means ruining my best friend.
