A collection of five erotic stories with mixed and varied themes. 'Purposeful Liaison' by Shermaine Williams: When work calls her husband back from their romantic island holiday, Charlotte is left to enjoy what's left on her own, rather that reigniting the lost passion of her marriage. Her sudden abandonment soon registers on the radar of Matthew, a well-toned holiday-maker looking for company during his stay. 'Alice and the Red Queen' by Jean Roberta: When a young student takes on the job of gardener for an erstwhile tennis star, gardening is not the only activity to leave her hot and breathless. The Red Queen soon sets her sights on the nubile employee and enters into a game where domination is the ultimate prize. 'Serial Satisfaction' by Cathryn Cooper: Michael can't wait to indulge in his affair with his best friend's wife. In the seclusion of a lay-by, Crystal waits for her lover, but has demands of her own in mind. As Michael revels in her sensuous affection, Crystal takes him to the brink only to stop. 'Shared Experience' by Lynn Lake: The saying goes two's company and three's a crowd, but is that always the case? David is desperate for Amy to join him in realising his yearning for a threesome. Reluctant at first, Amy eventually succumbs to his wish and arranges for the arrival of the additional party: the voluptuous Cassandra. 'Sweet Dreams' by Jade Taylor: Horny, frustrated, and eager to get her toy boy home to the bedroom, Ellie must first lure Greg away from the nightclub. However, the easy distractions of youth interfere with her intentions, despite her most determined and seductive efforts. However, fate works in mysterious ways, and an after-hours invitation to Greg's friend Adam's home provides her with a golden opportunity. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Katy Anderson.

'Strange Fruit' and Other Songs, m. Audio-CD
22,70 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Das im Jahre 1939 von der afro-amerikanischen Sängerin Billie Holiday im New Yorker Nightclub The Café Society gesungene Musikstück „Strange Fruit' beschreibt die Schönheit und Eleganz der amerikanischen Südstaaten und kontrastiert sie in drastischer Weise mit der brutalen Realität der Lynchmorde, die vor allem im Süden der USA begangen wurden. Das TIME Magazine kürte den Song 1999 zu dem Song des 20. Jahrhunderts. Auch durch die ausdrucksstarke Vortragsweise Billie Holidays erlangte das Lied schnell internationale Bekanntheit und wurde zum musikalischen Ausdruck der amerikanischen Bürgerrechtsbewegung sowie zum Vorläufer für Protestsongs von Bob Dylan oder Nina Simone.
