Barrier Island Suite: Kendall Dunkelberg
Published for the first time in audio - Jon Pertwee´s infamous autobiography, Moon Boots and Dinner Suits, read by Terry Molloy. Jon Pertwee´s acting career began with a public performance at the age of four. He seems to have been expelled from most of the schools his actor-writer father, Roland Pertwee, sent him to and finally joined RADA in 1936. From there, too, he was asked to leave. Jon went into Rep and had a checkered career. In Brighton panic set in when he dressed as an old gardener in Love from a Stranger instead of as a young cleric in Candida. In 1938 came Jon´s first radio role in the BBC´s Lillibulero, in which year he also appeared in his father´s play, To Kill a Cat, directed by Henry Kendall at the Aldwych Theatre. When war came he joined the navy, ramming Douglas Pier with an Isle of Man Steam Packet boat. He was blown up twice, once put on a marble slab and presumed dead, and spent many months stationed in the Scapa Flow. He was the founder of the Service Players in the Isle of Man. He was commissioned in the RNVR and transferred to naval intelligence, where he worked and became good friends with the future Prime Minister James Callaghan. Then Jon joined Naval Broadcasting. His radio series, The Navy Lark, ran for 18 years and produced some truly vintage memories of radio. Whether telling stories of a misspent youth, of his posterior´s first painful introduction to a fives bat or of his exploits with the McKenzie sisters in the north of Scotland, Jon Pertwee´s humour and natural wit never fail him. Moon Boots and Dinner Suits is a wry, funny and endearing portrait of the early years of a most innovative and well-loved actor. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Terry Molloy.

A hot and hilarious new standalone from New York Times best seller Kendall Ryan We met in a trapped elevator. Emmett was on his way to work, sophisticated and handsome in his tailored suit and tie. I was on my way to the sperm bank. Awkward, right? At 35, my life hadn´t taken the path I thought it would and I was tired of waiting - I wanted a baby. And I was ready to take matters into my own hands to make it happen. After our ill-fated elevator encounter, Emmett insisted on taking me to dinner - he also insisted on something else - that I ditch my plan involving a turkey baster and let him do the job. He would be my baby daddy. He was a wealthy and powerful CEO with little interest in diapers or playdates. And since he didn´t want kids, I´d be on my own once his bun was in my oven, free to go my own way. But once his baby was inside me, it was like a switch had been flipped, and I got a whole lot more than I ever bargained for. This full-length standalone contains a hot, swoon-worthy hero, lots of playful banter and some hot baby-making! Enjoy. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sebastian York, Virginia Rose.

From The New York Times best-selling author Kendall Ryan comes a stand-alone romance about a swoony, single dad and the quirky, new neighbor he falls for. Last night was the most embarrassing night of my life. I was THAT girl. You know, the highly intoxicated chick celebrating her 30th with her two best friends - the ones who are happily married. And the more I drank, the more I wanted to do something reckless to celebrate. By reckless, I meant the sexy and alluring man dressed in a business suit standing near the bar. You know his type - tall, dark, and handsome. I was sure he was out of my league, but I´d had just enough alcohol that things like that no longer seemed to matter. I´m not fat, mind you, but you can tell I like French fries, so there´s that. He took me home, and I enjoyed the hottest birthday sex of my life, well, until it came to a screeching, and rather unwelcome halt. There´s nothing quite like being interrupted mid-ride with a little voice asking: ´´What are you doing to my daddy?´´ Just kill me now...or so I thought. Come to find out the man I rode like a bull at the rodeo is my new landlord. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andi Arndt, Sebastian York.
