How well do you know your neighbors? Elliot Jefferson moved to the isolated Estates of North Hills to work on his sobriety and avoid other people at all costs. But when the electric transformers around the complex begin emitting a horrible buzz that he calls ´´the Squall´´, neither is easy to achieve. Because some of his neighbors are acting strange. Twitching, fighting, and muttering about voices only they can hear. Soon Elliot will find himself face-to-face with the worst humanity has to offer, as wives imprison husbands, children butcher parents, and those under the Squall´s influence go to insane lengths to keep their secret safe. If he wants to survive, Elliot must discover the awful truth for himself, and lead a small group of innocents to safety...before they´re all just as doomed as their neighbors. 1. Language: English.

When destiny fails... Singer-songwriter Lucy Moore thought her life was perfect. At just 21, she´s already met her soul mate and together they´ve landed a recording contract. But when her father dies and the love of her life betrays her in more ways than one she returns home to pick up the pieces. On the shores of Mendocino, California, Lucy has some decisions to make. Should she start a solo career? Or should she leave it all behind for some semblance of normalcy in the quiet town she grew up in? And what about Seth, the tortured artist who always seems to be there when she needs him? Seth Keenan has demons of his own. Eighteen months ago, he was involved in a horrific accident that he never talks about. His career as an accomplished oil-paint artist has been abandoned, replaced by the buzz of his tattoo gun. And women - well, he never sticks around for longer than a few hours of pleasure...until he meets Lucy. After one evening of listening to her seductive voice, he´s pulled under. But what about the vow he made to never get close to anyone again? In a world where everyone has one true soul mate, can these two find love in the arms of each other? 1. Language: English.

A tortured hero with a heart of gold Growing up on the streets of Rio de Janeiro, Javier Almeida has only his older sister to protect him. When she´s sold to a human-trafficker, he vows to hunt down those responsible. Years later, Titan Group´s Delta team finds him, tattooed and brawling, a vigilante protector with information they want. They take him in and train him, working him harder than a man should be driven, until he´s a soldier harboring an obsession. Ready for revenge, Javier ghosts his way across the globe, tracking the men who took his sister and working elite private security jobs. Meets sweet and sassy Jilted at the altar, Sophia Cole turns the reception into a one-woman party. She´s intent on devouring all the cake and champagne, so she can bask in the calories she´s been avoiding. In the midst of the revelry, he walks in, the one man she can never ignore. Javier is her older brother´s black ops teammate - an automatic Do Not Go There. But if there´s one thing better than fondant and a buzz to ease the wounds of a cheating fiancé, it might be a one-night stand with a South American military man. Game changer Javier didn´t expect to see Sophia again. He never thought he would even want to see her again. He shouldn´t have touched her, but his mind won´t stay away from her. Now, Sophia Cole is thousands of miles away from the safety of her parents´ lavish estate and working alongside him in hell. She´s a staffer at an embassy, and he´s there to keep them alive. There are bombs and bullets and blood-hungry enemies. And then she´s taken. Gone. Just like his sister. But so much worse. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeffrey Kafer.
