A Deep Six Security Christmas story Thomas Griffin never thought he´d be a homeless vet at 46 years old. But when he was no longer useful to the government he´d spent his life serving, it turned its back on him when he needed it most, costing him everything he ever loved. After that, he really didn´t care. Living his life on the fringe was safe, and he didn´t have to worry about anything except his next meal. That safety remains until a beautiful socialite decides to come slumming for Thanksgiving on the wrong side of town and gets herself into trouble. Over her 55 years of life, Lou Ellen Wells had received many blessings. To pay them forward and honor the men in her life who served her country, both living and dead, she cooked Thanksgiving dinner at the Dallas Veteran´s Services Center every year. It was located in a bad part of town, but she´d never had a problem, until this year, when she´s brutally attacked and can´t get to her gun. A bedraggled man with piercing blue eyes jumps to her rescue and saves her with moves out of an action movie. She gives him her card and offers him help, but he tells her doesn´t need saving and takes off like his tail is on fire. A couple weeks later, Lou is surprised when the man calls her asking for help of a different kind. A teenage girl he cares about has gone missing in gang territory. He´s afraid she´ll get killed if he doesn´t find her soon. Lou calls in the team to help him, but her price for that help is finding out why her silent knight, who is obviously skilled and educated, chooses to be homeless. But will satisfying her curiosity about Thomas Griffin put her in the crosshairs of a terrorist group even more dangerous than MS-13? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Matt Haynes.

For fans of The Birth of Venus, Girl with a Pearl Earring, and The Other Boleyn Girl, Amy Hassinger, author of Nina: Adolescence, delivers this historically lush, lyrical, and thoroughly enthralling novel about the forbidden love between a woman and a holy man, and about the moral and spiritual struggles of faith. In 1896, the priest in a small village in southern France suddenly came into possession of immense wealth. This much is true. What no one knows for sure is where his money came from. The history of the region suggests that he may have stumbled upon clues to a hidden treasure of the Knights Templar. An even more tantalizing possibility is that he discovered coded documents hidden in the structure of his church, documents so threatening to the Catholic Church that he was paid to keep silent. At his death under mysterious circumstances in 1917, his secrets died with him. Yet there is one other person who may have known all, Marie Dernanaud, the priest´s housekeeper and, some say, his lover. Interweaving the history of France at the turn of the twentieth century, scenes of ancient Judea, and the romantic and religious journey of a spirited and intense heroine, The Priest´s Madonna gives Marie a chance to tell her version of what transpired, as well as her own story of belief, doubt, and illicit passions. 1.
