Summary

DESCRIPTION:
Helga was a research assistant in a lab that nurtured an alien plant that survived on a returning space shuttle. Her job was to take care of the plant and discover what it needed. One day she was late feeding the plant and it decided to punish her, over and over while her collogues watched.

EXCERPT:
On a Monday, she never expected to be captured by the plant’s tentacles. Helga was late for work and as a result, late feeding her alien charge. The plant seemed agitated as Helga entered the isolation chamber and several of the scientists were watching intently. As usual she dressed in her isolation suit and entered the chamber to feed and water the plant, but something was different.

The tentacles especially seemed more agitated and were moving faster than she had ever seen. As she added water to the plant’s base, tentacles wrapped around both her legs and around her waist. She wasn’t worried, because she loved her plant, but they began to squeeze, and she felt trapped. She began to get frightened as more tentacles joined in wrapping around her.

Suction cups on the tentacles began to enlarge on the tentacles, as well as little hooks and the combination started tearing at her isolation suit. Helga frantically looked at the observation window and pleaded with them to rescue her, but the other scientists only stared, with a couple of her fellow scientists taking notes.

By the time she felt tentacles wrapping around her legs, it was too late. The tentacles latched on to her with an unbreakable grip and when she felt her isolation suit rip, she was open to the alien’s environment. The tentacles strength astounded her as she fought and struggled against the seemingly unending swarm of tentacles. While multiple tentacles lifted her above the floor, spread and held her arms and legs captive, other tentacles began shredding and stripping her isolation suit and clothes from her.

The alien plant could have been exploring her and maybe was just as curious about her as she was about the plant. The plant seemed to have an intelligence that had not been previously known. Apparently, the tentacles wanted her naked, vulnerable and available to whatever it had in mind. So far Helga had not been hurt, but only exposed to the alien environment. Still, she was scared and had no idea what the future held for her, but to her fellow scientists she was a sacrifice to the altar of science.

Fear raced through her struggling form. She fought with everything she had, but it had very little effect. The alien plant seemed intent on exploring her and it considered her an alien species that needed investigation. Once she was caught, the fear of how she was going to survive overruled all her other senses. Helga tried to regain her wits and think of a way out, but terror gripped her, and she couldn’t think. A jolt of adrenaline made her heart pound in her chest and cleared her mind for a second, but it didn’t make any difference.

    “[An] erotic, existential mystery . . . part philosophical meditation, part fantasy” from the Prix Goncourt-winning author of The Lover (The Guardian). 
     
    A man hires a woman to spend several weeks with him by the sea. The woman is no one in particular, a “she,” a warm, moist body with a beating heart—the enigma of Other. Skilled in the mechanics of sex, he desires through her to penetrate a different mystery: he wants to learn to love. It isn’t a matter of will, she tells him. Still, he wants to try . . . 
     
    This beautifully wrought erotic novel is an extended haiku on the meaning of love, “perhaps a sudden lapse in the logic of the universe,” and its absence, “the malady of death.”

Comprising one-hundred-and-eighty-four chapters and over one million words, the epic confessional describes in eloquent and explicit detail the exploits of a man (who refers to himself simply as 'Walter'), whose life was devoted to the pursuit of erotic adventure and carnal pleasure. 
    Now for the first time in the history of this infamous erotic masterpiece, film composer Dominic Crawford Collins is producing a fully scored narration of the complete unabridged text. More 'audiofilm' than audiobook, each chapter and scene has its own unique musical accompaniment, reflecting the author's changing emotional landscape and offering the listener a truly immersive erotic audio experience.

    This wolf mates for life…  
    Nina Reyes knows trouble when she sees it, and Lex Warden, Enforcer for the local werewolf pack, is nothing but. When her brother gets in too deep with some dangerous wolves and comes to Nina for help—dragging superalpha protector Lex into her life—she can handle it. She might have put her grifter past behind her, but she's still got what it takes. If only she didn't find Lex—his body, his scent, even his domineering nature—so intoxicating.  
    As Enforcer, it's Lex's job to protect his people. Nina might be more capable of handling herself than he initially thought, but that doesn't mean she's safe from their enemies. His need to protect her is more than just pack business—Nina, a human, is his mate. Bedding her once is not even close to enough; to satisfy his wolf, he needs a true bond.   
    The heat between them scares Nina, but sometimes the reward is worth the risk, and the thought of living without Lex terrifies her more than any threat the werewolf mafia can pose. Lex will do anything to keep her safe. And when the Rogues catch up to them, he'll get a chance to prove it…
