Performance Notes
In this scene - the retail sample - Abner Coblantz has come back to his home deep in the Appalachian foothills of southern Ohio for his grandmother’s funeral, and he comes face-to-face with his worst enemy – Cora, who also happens to be the only woman he’s ever loved. Abner, who was raised Amish until a tragedy caused him to be sent to live with his non-Amish birth mother, left home after being betrayed by Cora. This scene with Abner and Cora (and features some strong Appalachian accents) takes place at his mother’s home, which, unbeknownst to Abner, she shares with Cora and her children. At his mother’s request, he agrees to stay for a few days after the funeral, and forms a very tenuous truce with Cora.

This is the retail sample from the third book in Jessie Gussman's "Sweetwater Billionaire Cowboys" series. In this scene, Morgan Nelson, a fashion model who turns her back on the industry rather than compromise her principles, finally meets the brooding and mysterious Ford Hanson - a multimillionaire IT developer who has hired her to be his temporary assistant while his sister Georgia is away on vacation. It's a wonderful modern take on "Beauty and the Beast", with a hero whose scars are more than physical, and a heroine who is far more than just a pretty face.

Performance Notes
This is the retail sample for "Mount: A Mountain Man's Adventure". The story, by Arlen Blumhagen, captures the feel of the western wilderness of the late 1800's in this story of one man's adventures across the American wilderness. The story is told from a first-person narrative perspective: the sample is the foreword, in which the listener first meets the titular Mount. The character calls for a western "cowboy" voice, with lots of humor and warmth behind a rugged persona.
