It was a junket, a freebie. A ´team-building´ weekend in the highlands for lawyers, advertising execs, businessmen, even the head of a charity. Oh, and a journalist, specially solicited for his renowned and voluble scepticism - Jack Parlabane. Amid the flying paintballs and flowing Shiraz even the most cynical admit the organisers have pulled some surprises - stalkers in the forest, power cuts in the night, mass mobile phone thefts, disappearing staff, disappearing guests: there´s nothing can bring out people´s hidden strengths or break down interpersonal barriers quite like not having a clue what´s going on and being scared out of your wits. However, when the only vehicular access for thirty miles is cut off, it seems that events are being orchestrated not just for pleasure.... And that´s before they find the first body. Thereafter, ´finding out who your colleagues really are´ is not so much an end product as the key to reaching Monday morning alive. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Angus King.

This selected collection has three unique stories of steamy roleplaying for the untamed and carnal listener. Treat Me Like a Pony - The bridle, the bit, the spurs, and the riding crop. Paige learns that the everyday tools that a cowboy uses to control his pony can be used for other things, too, when she takes a detour out of the city and meets a young farmhand named Heath. Hunt Me Like a Fox - Cold and exposed to the Oregon forest, Fionna Guarascio is being hunted by her boyfriend so she can experience what it is like to be preyed upon. Armed with a paintball gun to mark his trophy, Garrett McKenna tracks her like a true hunter on the trail. Treat Me Like a Kitty - Luna Barnes knew there was something special about her new boyfriend Jan-Michael Murphy from the day she met him. She never would have guessed what he would ask her to do one night: to act like a kitten for him. It seemed like such a simple request, but she had no idea exactly what it would entail...until she found herself wearing a little pink collar with a bell. 1. Language: English.

A must-read for fans of Rachel Joyce´s The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry and Maria Semple´s Where´d You Go, Bernadette Heartbreaking and hilarious in equal measure, the new novel by the author of the internationally bestselling phenomenon A Man Called Ove will charm and delight anyone who has ever had a grandmother. Everyone remembers the smell of their grandmother´s house. Everyone remembers the stories their grandmother told them. But does everyone remember their grandmother flirting with policemen? Driving illegally? Breaking into a zoo in the middle of the night? Firing a paintball gun from a balcony in her dressing gown? Seven-year-old Elsa does. Some might call Elsa´s granny ´eccentric´, or even ´crazy´. Elsa calls her a superhero. And granny´s stories, of knights and princesses and dragons and castles, are her superpower. Because, as Elsa is starting to learn, heroes and villains don´t always exist in imaginary kingdoms; they could live just down the hallway. As Christmas draws near, even the best superhero grandmothers may have one or two things they´d like to apologise for. And, in the process, Elsa can have some breath-taking adventures of her own . . .
