This collection includes 50 of the most beautiful love sonnets in the Elizabethan (Shakespearean) structure of iambic pentameter. These sonnets explore practically every conceivable aspect of love. The poems delicately lace and entwine within their structure, the profound impact of love on all of us. Though quite sophisticated in language at times, these poems, when heard over again and understood, have the simplicity of a ballad, which elucidates the bright side and dark sides, the happy and sad sides, and the frustrating side of love - indeed every facet of love and its concomitant good and ill. Listen to them, enjoy them, and treasure them. Afterward, your concept of love will not only be enhanced, but also forever changed. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nick Jermyn.

It´s 1975, two years before the murder of Delores Fogel shocked the Central Texas town of Elysium, setting up the chain of events that would lead to the post-millennium conclusion to the mystery in Murder in Elysium. Michael Lee ´´Mucho Love´´ Harper, Elysium´s Chief of Police, has a double-murder on his hands, and this is the strangest killing of his career. The Childress´s were wealthy and they had their fingers in every slice of local pie. They were, however, hermits, hoarders, and the owners of a chain of funeral parlors that stretched from the Gulf Coast to El Paso. Mucho Love, Elysium´s sentinel, must delve deeply into the dark secrets of his own town in order to catch the killer and hold onto his job - a monumental task, because the powers-that-be want anything but a resolution. 1.

The Associated Press calls her ´´one of the most talented storytellers around´´. Now, New York Times best-selling author Mary Jane Clark brings listeners a delicious new mystery. Piper Donovan accepts when the owner of Elysium, an exclusive spa and plastic-surgery center, offers her an all-expenses-paid trip to Los Angeles to create a dazzling and unique wedding cake. The job also gives Piper the time and distance she needs to sort out her feelings for handsome FBI agent Jack Lombardi. The ultra-luxurious spa caters to the rich and famous in need of a little ´´refreshing´´ - a nip here, a tuck there, a little Botox, a little detox. Nestled in the Hollywood Hills, Elysium seems picture-perfect: the grounds, the staff, even the guests. But no sooner does Piper arrive than a guest is brutally murdered in one of the private bungalows. Someone, it seems, wants to make sure Elysium´s beautiful director, Jillian Abernathy, never gets to walk down the aisle. Piper soon discovers that beneath the glamorous surface of this idyllic oasis lies an ugly truth - and a cold-blooded plan for murder. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Therese Plummer.
