ggf. zzgl. Versand

When Monday Brown disappears and circumstances point to murder, few people in Billings, Montana, are surprised or think it undeserved. His business practices were undesirable and his profession - a trader in Indian artifacts who wouldn't think twice about desecrating a grave - was an insult to, and an assault on, Native Americans.Police arrest a hot-blooded Gulf War veteran with a big mouth and a propensity for trouble named Matthew Wolf, a Crow Indian. Wolf's family comes to private investigator Phoebe Siegel for help. But she turns them down - until the body of a young Indian man shows up virtually in her backyard. Phoebe begins an investigation that takes her from the comfort and security of her world and onto the Crow reservation where the color of her skin makes her the enemy. 1. Language: English.

Sorella Corvino lost her brother to The Cursed years ago. Sorella is so determined to find him, she'll make any deal, rescue the outcasts and those like him, and risk flying into any port to rescue him. When her latest pirate efforts partner her with a bounty hunter who's too charming, sexy, and handsome for his own good, she knows she's in trouble. Ian Marshall no longer believes in fairy tales. Disowned and a marked criminal in the United States, this merchant turned bounty hunter is one bounty away from freedom; and freedom's price is handing over one person to the most cutthroat gang in the world, The Cursed. Yet, he can't get to them without Sorella's help. Too bad she's gorgeous, aggravating, and a little trigger happy. As the attraction mounts, the danger grows and the pair find themselves invading a skin trader den, the ballrooms of dictator-ruled Germany, and fighting battles in the sky in the hopes of getting everything they want. Only thing they didn't plan on was falling in love. 1. Language: English. Narrator: S.W. Salzman. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/058804/bk_acx0_058804_sample.mp3.
