Nick Woods and your favorite members of S3 (Marcus, Truck, and Red) plunge back into action again. This time he and his team are deployed to Afghanistan, where the Taliban is poised to seize the capital city of Kabul and take over the country for good. The Taliban is well led by an impressive spiritual warrior, and, making matters worse, America´s political leadership is sick of investing men and resources into a war that´s now lasted 15 years. Nick and the nearly 50 members of Shield, Safeguard, and Shelter are sent to somehow find a way to avert the looming threat. Unfortunately for them, they´ll soon find out that they´re fighting more than just the Taliban. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jay Snyder.

I felt the wind rustle, warning me, telling me to get out of its path - but I didn´t. I never stood a chance. A series of weather and road mishaps leave me trapped in the middle of a blizzard with a complete stranger. In the back of a pickup truck. For 48 freakin´ hours. A stranger with long hair, tattoos, and rippling with muscle. A stranger with an insanely sexy voice and a wicked smile that turns my insides to jelly. A stranger who holds me in his arms, calms me, and then sets a fire in me that I can´t put out. Some people chase storms for the beautiful thrill. What happens when the storm chases you?

Evie: I met him in a snowstorm.... We spent 48 hours trapped in the back of his pickup truck. We fought. We touched. We fell. Hard. Storm: She literally crashed into my life.... The last thing I wanted was a relationship. Especially with a quirky chick who drove me insane. But something about her got under my skin, and into my heart. And I had to have her. All of her. Now. Falling in love in the back of a truck, just the two of us, was easy. Dealing with psycho fans, jealous exes, and demons from the past...not so easy. 1. Language: English.

This week on The Best of Car Talk, here´s a first. Ephraim went to the dealer to complain that his Audi´s gas mileage was too good. Apparently, said gas mileage nearly doubled when Ephraim´s finacée began driving the Audi, so there must be something wrong with the car, right? As Tom and Ray would say, ´´Au contraire, piston puss!´´ Elsewhere, Rachel´s mechanic warned her of ´´boulder intrusion´´ if she doesn’t replace a broken CV boot; Pam´s Toyota is dripping molten lead from the dashboard; and Al and his brother are arguing over whether it´s possible to park a truck in a position from which it´s impossible to move. Also, how one listener is using Car Talk to help teach English. Yes, really. All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: November 28, 2015] 1. Language: English.

What would you do if your world was dying? What would you do if you had a vision and perhaps if you followed that vision, you could save your world? What if your vision took you to a new world? Once there you find your soulmate, but she doesn´t speak your language and you don´t speak hers. Will you keep following your vision wherever it leads you? Will she accept you for who you are? Will she help you save your world? Xeechagillapxtuurii jumps into the raging current to be carried downstream in search of his vision. He finds his vision, including the one he is looking for. But this world is totally foreign to him. Nobody understands him. Somehow he must gain her trust and communicate with them. Somehow he must get her to want to come back to his world to help him save it. Sylvia is a college student. She is holed up in her truck during the storm. When she sees a hippie being driven towards her truck, she responds as she always does when she sees someone or some animal in need - she opens the passenger door and pull some blankets from the back for him to wrap up in. What will she do with this stranger who has entered her life? How will she be able to communicate with him when nobody, not even the language professor can understand him? 1. Language: English.

Ford ´´Truck” Laughlin and Mary Weston have weathered their share of storms over the last couple years. Truck’s job, Mary’s health. His bossiness, her bitchiness. All while dancing around their intense attraction. Mary’s tried to push him away for his own good but Truck won’t let her give up…on herself or on them. Just when she decides they deserve a fair shot, disaster strikes. Truck has wanted Mary since the moment he saw her. The prickly woman pushes all his buttons and looks beyond his scarred exterior, something few women have managed. His plan to take their relationship to the next level is stalled when he’s injured on a mission. And he’s barely feeling like his old self again before the couple is dealt another blow, one that could permanently end their chances…and their lives. *Rescuing Mary is the 9th book in the Delta Force Heroes series. Usually my books are stand-alones, but in this case, I feel you would get more enjoyment out of the story if you listened to the other books first, since Mary and Truck’s relationship evolves throughout the series. If nothing else, I recommend listening to the first book in the series, Rescuing Rayne, where their relationship began. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stella Bloom.
