Cuando eres multimillonario, las empresas vienen a ti en busca de financiación; y eso solo me hizo más poderoso...y por tanto, más atractivo.Lo tenía todo.

Por supuesto, fue una de las noches más salvajes de mi vida - esposas, nata líquida...¿alguna pregunta?

Era ella, con un maletín lleno del dinero que me había robado.Advertencia: Una novela romántica y erótica con tintes de comedia, que narra el romance, la pasión y el odio entre un actor millonario y una chica mala tatuada.

The Irish are arguably the most literate people in the world. The number of famous Irish authors, from Joyce to Trevor and from Goldsmith to O´Brien, is a clear testimony to that. In this rich selection, we have concentrated on some of the early Irish writers who were particularly adept at the difficult art of writing good short stories. They range from Gerald Griffin´s chilling tale, ´´The Brown Man´´, to the delicate and closely observed ´´Araby´´, taken from James Joyce´s Dubliners, about adolescent sexual awakening. Also included are Oscar Wilde´s stylish and witty story ´´The Model Millionaire´´, about a young man on whom good fortune smiles; Oliver Goldsmith´s ´´Adventures of a Strolling Player´´, a compressed narrative of a peripatetic existence; Sheridan Le Fanu´s story about the ´´Faustian´´ Sir Dominick Sarsfield; William Castleton´s wily distiller Bob Pentland and his outwitting of the excide man; and Agnes Castle´s romantic Rosanna. They combine in a distinctive potpourri of stories written by Irish story tellers and inspired by Irish life and character. With his wonderfully rich voice and expertise at story-telling, narrator T.P. McKenna, the well-known Irish actor, brings an authentic flavour to this audiobook. 1. Language: English. Narrator: T.P.

Celebrated actress Lavinia Hargraves performs her most challenging role offstage. Although born in 1872 to Daniel Taylor, a white man and wealthy landowner in Southern California, Lavinia´s mother, Lori, is a Negro and former slave. Lavinia, who appears white, is desperate to hide her Negro ancestry as well as pursue her dream of becoming the world´s greatest actress. After eloping with the much older Vernon Hargraves, owner of New York´s premier theater company, Lavinia is provided with all she could ever want: a new life as white, stardom on the stage, and an abundant supply of money. Soon Lavinia´s seduction by a young and handsome actor sets in motion a devastating turn of events. Dashing millionaire contractor Andrew Standish comes into Lavinia´s life at a time when she needs him most. However, the secret of Lori´s existence could demolish her daughter´s carefully constructed facade. To what lengths will Andrew go to uncover Lavinia´s past? 1. Language: English.

Looking to sell? Help is right here! Before you put your house or condo on the market, read Corbett´s latest well-written book, Ready, Set, Sold!. Don´t be turned off by the cutesy title. This is a serious book about the techniques Corbett used to profit from selling 33 of his houses for top dollar. In addition to being a TV actor and host of Extra´s Mansions and Millionaires, Corbett knows how to maximize profits, whether selling his personal residence or a house he bought to fix and flip. In his first superb book, Find it, Fix it, Flip it!, Corbett shared his strategies for locating and profitably upgrading houses, often creating entirely new persona or lifestyles for the residences. In this new book the author concentrates on getting ready to sell the house you already own and maximizing its profit in good times or bad. The book explains how to transform an ordinary house into one that a buyer absolutely must have. Corbett does not advise radical renovations before selling a house. Instead, he suggests modest-cost techniques, such as resurfacing kitchen cabinets rather than replacing them. Along the way, he provides practical advice, such as hiring a painting company rather than a one-man operation if you want the fix-up work to be completed in 30 days or less. A huge factor in the Corbett formula is, after the house has been painted and fixed up, to ´´stage´´ it. That means clean it thoroughly of personal items, such as removing photos and memorabilia. Then make the home look inviting and up-to-date, usually by removing furniture and sometimes bringing in rented furnishings to make it seem more livable and spacious.When it comes to hiring a real-estate agent to market the house, Corbett has only one opinion: hire the best agent in the vicinity. He says the current home marketplace is not hospitable to a ´´for sale by owner´´. To save a mere 3 percent (because there will usually be a buyer´s agent expecting a 3 percen 1. Language: English.
