Audiobooks on CD
Here are the Audiobook on CD releases for this week, starting 30 May 2016:

Emperor's Revenge by Clive Cussler
Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon face their toughest challenge yet when a violent bank heist during the Monaco Grand Prix decimates the Corporation's accounts. To get the money back, Juan joins forces with an old friend from his days in the CIA so they can track down a rogue hacker and a ruthless former Ukrainian naval officer. It is only after the hunt begins that the enormity of the plan comes into focus: the bank theft is just the first step in a plot that will result in the deaths of millions and bring the world's economies to a standstill. The catalyst for the scheme? A stunning document stolen during Napoleon's disastrous invasion of Russia. But two hundred years later, it may be the thing that brings Europe to its knees.
Enlightened Relationships by Tolle Eckhart
Eckhart Tolle offers an insightful two-session program for bringing the transformational power of presence into this often challenging yet deeply rewarding area of our lives. Session one explores the arising of a new consciousness on the planet, and how more and more people are beginning to experience a shift from an egoic, thought-based identity to the realization of what Eckhart calls the essential Being nature. Session two offers a practical look at how this emerging awareness impacts relationships, as well as the steps to welcome the vertical dimension of space and stillness as the source of true connection and harmonious relationships.
Forgive Me by Daniel Palmer
P.I. Angie DeRose strives to save runaways. But Angie makes a life-altering discovery that will bring her past and present together with terrifying force.
A Hero of France by Alan Furst
1941. The City of Light is dark and silent at night. But in Paris and in the farmhouses, barns, and churches of the French countryside, small groups of ordinary men and women are determined to take down the occupying forces of Adolf Hitler. Mathieu, a leader of the French Resistance, leads one such cell, helping downed British airmen escape back to England.
Island House by Nancy Thayer
Every summer since college, twenty-nine-year-old Jenny has traded the familiarity of the Midwest for the allure of Nantucket. Now an established university professor in Kansas City, she finds herself caught between two lifestyles and two very different men. She chooses Nantucket and the glamorous life she associates with it, unaware that the summer will take an unexpected turn, and she will have to let her heart decide what it truly wants.
Marrying Winterborne by Lisa Kleypas
Savage ambition has brought common born Rhys Winterborne vast wealth and success. In business and beyond, Rhys gets exactly what he wants. From the moment he meets the shy, aristocratic Lady Helen Ravenel, he is determined to possess her. If he must take her virtue to ensure she marries him, so much the better.
Modern Lovers by Emma Straub
Friends and former college bandmates Elizabeth and Andrew and Zoe have watched one another marry, buy real estate, and start businesses and families, all while trying to hold on to the identities of their youth. But nothing ages them like having to suddenly pass the torch (of sexuality, independence, and the ineffable alchemy of cool) to their own offspring. Back in the band's heyday, Elizabeth put on a snarl over her Midwestern smile, Andrew let his unwashed hair grow past his chin, and Zoe was the lesbian all the straight women wanted to sleep with.  
Now nearing fifty, they all live within shouting distance in the same neighborhood deep in gentrified Brooklyn, and the trappings of the adult world seem to have arrived with ease. But the summer that their children reach maturity (and start sleeping together), the fabric of the adult lives suddenly begins to unravel.
