Mild and meek teacher David had a very big secret. He was a secret gambler and in massive debt to the biggest shark in town. When Clifton came calling, the only collateral he had left was his pretty wife and daughter. Extract: "We're gonna make sure you look your best. Undress!" Heather just stared back. "In front of you! You must be joking!" The next moment she was picking herself up off the floor with her ears ringing, and she realized Serena had slapped her hard across the face. "I will only tell you to do things once, you silly little slut," the other woman barked. "Let's see if you're a quick learner. Now strip!" Heather considered her options for no more than five more seconds before her shaky hands came up to slowly unbutton her summer dress, her pretty face burning with embarrassment. 1. Language: English.

How well do you really know your best friend? Kat Grant and Alice Campbell have a friendship forged in shared confidences and long lunches lubricated by expensive wine. Though they're very different women - the artsy socialite and the struggling suburbanite - they're each other's rocks. But even rocks crumble under pressure. Like when Kat's financier husband, Howard, plunges to his death from the second-floor balcony of their South Florida mansion. Howard was a jerk, a drunk, a bully, and, police say, a murder victim. The questions begin piling up. Like why Kat has suddenly gone dark: no calls, no texts, and no chance her wealthy family will let Alice see her. Why investigators are looking so hard in Alice's direction. Who stands to get hurt next. And who is the cool liar - the masterful manipulator behind it all. 1. Language: English.

What if America had a royal family? If you can't get enough of Harry and Meghan or Kate and William, meet American princesses Beatrice and Samantha.Two princesses vying for the ultimate crown.Two girls vying for the prince's heart.This is the story of the American royals.When America won the Revolutionary War, its people offered General George Washington a crown. Two and a half centuries later, the House of Washington still sits on the throne. Like most royal families, the Washingtons have an heir and a spare. A future monarch and a backup battery. Each child knows exactly what is expected of them. But these aren't just any royals. They're American.As Princess Beatrice gets closer to becoming America's first queen regnant, the duty she has embraced her entire life suddenly feels stifling. Nobody cares about the spare except when she's breaking the rules, so Princess Samantha doesn't care much about anything, either . . . except the one boy who is distinctly off-limits to her. And then there's Samantha's twin, Prince Jefferson. If he'd been born a generation earlier, he would have stood first in line for the throne, but the new laws of succession make him third. Most of America adores their devastatingly handsome prince . . . but two very different girls are vying to capture his heart.The duty. The intrigue. The Crown.

She stood over herself staring down at it confused. She’d never had an out-of-body experience before. Looking down at her hands, she noticed they were wet; her eyes registered the wetness as blood. Shock and surprise filled her as she looked at her body, seeing a pool of blood, her blood, spilling out onto the wooden floor. Was she…dead? That couldn’t be, she had so much to still do with her life, plans she had made, a bucket list never completed. She turned around looking for the door. This had to just be a bad dream. Her eyes fell on the shadow of a man, his face hidden from the dawn spilling in through the windows behind him. A dark smile consumed his face as he looked down at the body before him, “Thanks for playing.” A smooth voice began, “But it seems that you have lost the game.” He turned, heading for a door, closing and locking it behind him. She could feel disbelief coursing through her, she should know him; she should have known what happened, but all she knew at that moment was that she’d been tricked and that she was dead. Sorrow began to fill her being. Awash with the emotion, she moved ethereally to the window, looking out it at the figure slowly retreating down the hill. She would stay; she would stay here to warn the next person, and the next, until someone got the clue. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Matt Jenkins.

Rebel-30 MKII Head is the next generation of the Rebel 30 with the features you’ve been asking for. We’ve upped the gain on channel 2 and given it a more aggressive tone and feel. Channel has even more clean headroom with a lower noise floor. Of course, we’ve kept the unique Egnater features such as the TUBE MIX knob, giving you access to an incredible variety of tones from American to British and the silent record mode that actually replaces the speaker with an internal load so all the great power tube character is retained. Channel 1 delivers rich cleans with controls for volume, treble and bass. Channel 2 dishes out powerful, touch-responsive overdrive with treble, middle and bass EQ, as well as a wide-range gain knob that takes you from growl to scream. Both channels feature Egnater’s signature BRIGHT and TIGHT switches and each channel has its own WATTS knob so you can access both low-wattage crunch and serious clean headroom, or any combination between 1 to 30 watts. Under the hood you will find the new Elite Transformers with substantially greater headroom and industrial grade red FR4 glass epoxy circuit boards with beefed up copper traces to name just a few of the improvements. The REBEL-30 MARK II back panel holds more welcome surprises, such as independent REVERB controls for each channel and a tone-preserving series effects loop. The speaker-emulated line out lets you go directly to the board live or in the studio. Set the standby switch to 'Silent Record’ for great direct-recorded tones that spare both your ears and your neighbors. A dual-function footswitch for channel selection and reverb on/off is included. Combine the Rebel-30 Head with a pair of Rebel-112x cabs for a perfect mini-stack. · Bauart: Röhre · Leistung: 30 W · Kanäle: 2 · Gainstufen: 2 · Einschleifweg: seriell · Vorstufenröhren: 5x 12AX7 · Endstufenröhren: 2x 6V6 & 2x EL84 · Effekte: Hall/Reverb · Impedanz: 4/8/16 Ohm · Lieferumfang: Fußschalter & Tasche · Abmessungen (BxHxT): Topteil E-Gitarre
