When freelance advertising artist Kelli Ann Harrison agrees to oversee the final phase of construction on her brother's glamorous Lake Tahoe house, she intends to make a holiday out of it: lend her brother a helping hand and at the same time enjoy the area's winter sports. An unexpected encounter at a holiday mixer, however, leads to a job offer that throws Kelli's plans into disarray. Grant Pembroke, founder of Pembroke Advertising, is in town to bid for the lucrative Cassera's Casino account. Impressed by Kelli's artistic vision, Grant makes her a proposition that's too exciting to refuse: team up with him to forge an ad campaign for the bid. Kelli is determined to keep things professional, but that won't be easy, considering the high-voltage charge that sizzles between them from the start. With his creative ingenuity and broad-shouldered, dark-haired good looks, Grant makes it very difficult for Kelli to concentrate on her work - especially when it becomes clear that his feelings for her go far beyond the workplace. They make a wonderful team. But Grant is as headstrong as he is talented, and at times the two of them clash. Can business and pleasure mix? If Kelli and Grant play their cards right, can a whirlwind love affair last forever? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Holly Fielding.

But he slides instead into a self-induced poverty that destroys his creativity and his spirit. Only Rosemary, ever-faithful Rosemary, has the strength to challenge his commitment to his chosen way of life.

The lithe blonde who glides up to Jake Broussard's bar could have any man she chooses, but that isn't her endgame. The ex-cop quickly catches on to Stephanie's real plan, and it won't be long before Chez Sophia's rich and powerful clientele do the same. Stephanie's playing with fire.

A Culturematic is a little machine for making culture. It’s an ingenuity engine. Once wound up and released, the Culturematic acts as a probe into the often-alien world of contemporary culture, to test the atmosphere, to see what life it can sustain, to see who responds and how. Culturematics start small but can scale up ferociously, bootstrapping themselves as they go. Because they are so inexpensive, we can afford to fire off a multitude of Culturematics simultaneously. This is evolutionary strategy, iterative innovation, and rapid prototyping all at once. Culturematics are fast, cheap, and out of control. Perhaps as important, they fail early and often. They are the perfect antidote to a world where we cannot guess what’s coming next. In Culturematic, anthropologist Grant McCracken describes these little machines and helps the reader master them. Examples are drawn from NFL Films, Twitter, the Apple Genius Bar, Starbucks, Ford, SNL Digital Shorts, Restoration Hardware, UNICEF, J. Crew, Pie Lab, USA Network, and the GEICO gecko. For the traditional producers of culture - the creators of movies, design, advertising, publishing, magazines, newspapers, and corporate R&D - this book will inspire new innovation and creativity. For the emerging producers of culture - the digital players - this book will serve as a practical handbook. Culturematic: our app for creating the world anew. 1. Language: English.

Google gives nonprofit organizations $10,000 per month in free advertising through its Google Ad Grants program. And unlike most grants, Google's has an extremely quick application process and is very easy to get. So why do so few nonprofits participate in Google Ad Grants, and why do existing grantees struggle so much with maximizing its value to grow their organization? What's the catch? The catch is this: Google Ad Grants is very difficult to administer unless you have extensive knowledge of and expertise with the Google Adwords program. Having $10,000 to spend is easy; actually spending it is, in fact, very difficult. And because Google provides very little support or guidance on how to spend the money, the average nonprofit grantee is only able to use a few hundred dollars of their $10,000 allotment each month. But not anymore. The Google Ad Grants Playbook changes all of that.

Nine-year-old "Skid" Beaumont's family is stuck in the mud. Following his father's decision to relocate and build a new home, based on a drunken vision that New Orleans would rapidly expand eastwards into the wetlands as a result of the Seventies oil boom, Skid and his brothers grow up in a swampy area of Louisiana. But the constructions stop short, the dream fizzles out, and the Beaumonts find themselves sinking in a soggy corner of 1980s Cold War America. As things on the home front get more complicated, Skid learns of his mother's alleged magic powers and vaguely remembers some eerie stories surrounding his elder brother Frico. These, as well as early events that Skid saw with his own eyes, convince him that Frico has a gift to fix things by simply sketching them. For the next few years, Skid's self-appointed mission to convince his brother to join him in his lofty plan to change their family's luck and the world they live in will lead to even more mystery and high drama in the swamp.

All the kids in nine-year-old Stefan's school have gone crazy for Magical Charms, the new cereal especially for kids they've been advertising on TV. Not only is Magical Charms colorful and pretty tasty - every box comes with its own unique surprise! Stefan begs his mom to buy a box and can hardly wait to see what his prize is. But unlike his friends, who get cool prizes like mini wands, teeny-tiny swords, and super-small unicorns, Stefan gets a boring miniature lamp that looks a lot like Aladdin's, but can't do anything special - or so Stefan thinks! It isn't until he accidentally wishes for something while holding the little lamp that Stefan realizes his prize is more than meets the eye. A beautiful quirky girl - a genie named Jinn - lives inside, and she's ready and willing to grant Stefan's every wish! At first Stefan is ecstatic. How amazing it is to have everything he could possibly want right at his fingertips! But he soon realizes that having a genie of his own just might be more trouble than it's worth.... And then there's the fact that Jinn has a mission from the Fairy Queen that she just can't remember.... "Jinn, are you listening to me?" "JINN! PAY ATTENTION! This is important!" "Huh, what? Oh yeah. Uhh. Sorry, Your Majesty," said Jinn to the Fairy Queen as she sleepily rubbed her eyes. "A very important mission... don't worry, you can count on me. Must... save... magic...." Jinn's voice trailed off as her eyes grew heavy and gave way to sleep. "JINN!" shouted the Fairy Queen "JINN! Remember the mission and focus on it!" But it was no use, Jinn was fast asleep. The Fairy Queen shook her head in despair. But what choice did she have at this point? It was all up to Jinn now. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Katie Kozlowski.
