Wilkins, a conservative soldier, gets the shock of her life upon her first meeting with Johnson, an overly liberal journalist from San Antonio. Johnson is blunt, loud, and kind of cute but nevertheless, the exact opposite of quiet, rule-bound Wilkins. Johnson, who happens to be best friends with Wilkins' superior, Tech Sergeant Ian Morris, ends up falling head over heels for the modest sergeant, and upon learning the nature of Johnson's feelings, Wilkins tries her best to avoid the extraverted woman, knowing that if she gives in to the promised affection, her job title and reputation will be compromised. However, when Johnson is assigned to do an undercover story about life as an Air Force trainee and is asked to reside in the dormitories as a trainee, all chaos breaks loose. Wilkins ends up having to choose between love and her responsibility as a soldier, knowing that her choice may have a lasting effect on the rest of her life. 1. Language: English.

In the meantime, Dean is called back to her side job as a private investigator and has to break the secrets behind a drug-hustling prostitution ring without blowing her cover.

When Wendy Murphy was a young prosecutor, she learned that the deck is stacked in favor of criminal defendants. Between their arrest and (potential) conviction, murderers, rapists, and drug dealers get more than a fair shake; they get an unfair advantage, often at the expense of their victims. In many states, for instance, defendants can subpoena a victim's private medical and counseling files without any justification. They can threaten victims with brutal cross-examinations if they dare to testify. They can put on "dog and pony show" defenses that have nothing to do with the truth. They can even lie under oath with virtually no risk of being prosecuted for perjury. These kinds of injustices make Murphy fighting mad. She's made it her mission to help the victims who get the least protection from our twisted legal system. And in this, her first book, she guides readers through one horror story after another about judges and lawyers who bend over backward to let the worst offenders go free. You'll meet judges who unapologetically declare that they care more about their liberal ideology than about the pain and suffering of abuse victims; judges who let child molesters walk free because they're "too frail" to go to prison; defense attorneys who take big money from wealthy child molesters, then twist the Bill of Rights beyond recognition; and even a few prosecutors who go easy on criminals for their own selfish reasons. Murphy's true stories will shock you, but they will also inspire you to join the fight for a more rational system. This is an important book that is sure to infuriate America's legal establishment. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joyce Bean.

Oscar Wilde owed his most outstanding characteristics - his precocious intellectualism, his flamboyance, his hedonism, his recklessness, his pride, his sense of superiority, his liberal sexual values - to his parents. Oscar's mother, Lady Jane Wilde, rose to prominence as a political journalist, advocating in 1848 a rebellion against colonialism. Proud, involved and challenging, she became a salon hostess and opened the Wildes' Dublin home at No. 1 Merrion Square to the public. Known as the most scintillating and stirring hostess of her day, she passed on her infectious delight in the art of living to Oscar, who imbibed it greedily. His father was Sir William Wilde, one of the most eminent men of his generation. Acutely conscious of injustices in the social order, Sir William laid the foundations for the Celtic renaissance in the belief that culture would establish a common ground between the privileged and the poor, Protestant and Catholic. But Sir William was also a philanderer, and when he stood accused of sexually assaulting a young female patient, the scandal and trial sent shock waves through Dublin society. After his father's death, the Wildes moved to London, where Oscar burst irrepressibly upon the scene. The one role that didn't suit him was that of the Victorian husband, as his wife, Constance, was to discover. For beneath the swelling forehead was a self-destructive itch: a lifelong devourer of attention, Oscar was unable to recognise when the party was over. The Fall of the House of Wilde for the first time places Oscar Wilde as a member of one of the most dazzling Anglo-Irish families of Victorian times and in the broader social, political and religious context. A remarkable and perceptive account, this is a major repositioning of our first modern celebrity, a man whose own fall from grace in a trial as public as his father's marked the end of fin de siècle decadence. 1.

Comedian Kabir "Kabeezy" Singh, and his album The Calm Before the Storm, are a cut above the rest. His jokes pierce deep and he gets to the point. He's sharp, incisive, and edgy. Although it's hard to say exactly what it is that makes Kabir's pen mightier than the sword (yet able to cut like one), it might simply be that his garish bravado is a smokescreen for his clever, well-crafted twists and takes. While bordering on abrasive and contentious, his lavish and liberal use of various flavorful expletives actually make his material accessible and inclusive. Kabir's swagger is alluring. His candidness is refreshing. Wiseass commentary about his Indian heritage, defining and defying stereotypes, is exceptional. The Calm Before the Storm is a vital and vibrant comedy album, any way you slice it. You can't tell Kabeezy nothing! The comedian speaks his truth which is boldly flagrant in the face of respectability. Singh is a force. He lowers his shoulder and ignores caution, wielding his sense of humor like a battering ram. The Calm Before the Storm features conflict at its center. Kabir "Kabeezy" Singh is serene and supremely talented at managing the chaos. The album has a laundry list of antagonists - disapproving mothers, Siri, grammar, money, driverless cars - looking to knock the comedian off his game. When things get rowdy, Kabir commands the crowd like a captain of a booze cruise, keeping everybody engaged but in check. Just when you think it's safe, Kabir Singh flies fearlessly into a joke so audacious the audience gasps in shock before laughing hysterically, gasping for air. Prepare to be blown away! Kabir "Kabeezy" Singh is one of the fastest rising comedians in the nation. A high-energy, crowd-pleasing comic with an in-your-face attitude and razor-sharp wit, he is performing to sold-out crowds across the US and internationally. He was one of the select comedians to perform opening weekend at Jimmy Kimmel's new comedy 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kabir Kabeezy Singh.
