Everything Emma Thompson owns fits in a suitcase. She moves from one roach infested motel to another. She and Jake, her five-year-old son, who can see the future, are running from the men intent on taking him. Emma will do anything to protect him, even when it means accepting the help of a stranger named Will. Jake insists she needs Will, but Emma´s never needed help before. And even though she´s learned to trust her son, it doesn´t mean she trusts Will. Mercenary Will Davenport lives in the moment. Hauling Emma to South Dakota should have been an easy job, but his employer neglected to tell him about Emma´s freaky son and the gunmen hot on her trail. Instinct tells him this job is trouble, but nothing can prepare him for Jake´s proclamation that Will is The Chosen One, who must protect Emma from the men hunting her power. A power she doesn´t know she has. Will protects Emma and Jake on a cross-country chase from the men pursuing them, while struggling with memories from his past, his apprehension of Jake, and his growing attraction to Emma. Will´s overwhelming urge to protect Emma surprises him, especially since it has nothing to do with his paycheck and possibly everything to do with the tattoo Jake branded on his arm. Rich and powerful men are desperate to capture Emma, and Will must discover why before it´s too late. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Mierau.

Now Tammy is the youngest federal judge in the state of Oklahoma, while Debbie is a well-respected accountant. Deep down, though, they are still the same around the way girls from back in the day, and they sometimes still feel the urge to ´´get freaky with it.´´ Of course, what´s done in the dark - or in their case, under the sheets - will always come to light, causing complete and utter chaos.´´Do or Die´´ by India Johnson-Williams: After a big indictment comes down on some of Detroit´s major drug players, their women are left behind to keep the hustle afloat.
