Category: Historical Romance

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

A woman’s desperate attempt to escape an arranged marriage leads to adventure she never could have imagined in Elizabeth St. Michel’s riveting new novel, The Winds of Fate.

Claire Hamilton will do anything to avoid marrying the vile duke to whom her uncle has her betrothed—including marrying convicted felon Dr. Devon Blackmon, a prisoner in Newgate Prison.

In retaliation, Claire is banished to the wild outpost of Jamaica, where on impulse she buys a slave of her own, only to discover that she has inadvertently bought her own husband—a move that does anything but endear him to his new “wife.”
Forced together in order to fight the deadly plague ravaging the island, Claire and Blackmon slowly develop a forbidden friendship that neither expected. Wildly untrusting on both sides, they struggle to navigate their newfound positions—until Blackmon seizes a chance to escape, soon rising to fame as the Black Devil Pirate, commanding his Caribbean kingdom and striking fear in the crowned heads of Europe.

But the outlaw is not finished with Claire yet, as their paths eventually cross once again and Blackmon takes her captive.

Caught in a war between France, England, and their own hearts, will Claire and Blackmon survive?

Detour, by Martin M. Goldsmith, is regularly $2.99 but has been discounted to just 99 cents today in the Amazon Kindle store.

Category: Suspense

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

THE ROAD TO HELL IS PAVED …

1938. Alexander Roth is hitchhiking from New York to Los Angeles, hoping to reconnect with his self-absorbed, cutesy-poo girlfriend. A car stops to pick him up and he is soon plunged into a nightmare from which there may be no escape.

This fatalistic novel is a forgotten noir masterpiece that has languished for decades in the swamps of neglected crime fiction. In 1945, film director Edgar G Ulmer cranked out the movie version in a couple of weeks on a microscopic budget, and it is now widely recognized as one of the greatest gems in film noir history. The novel is its equal in every way, exploring the very darkest corners of the human condition.

Legendary crime fiction author Lawrence Block provides a foreword unique to this edition.

The Iron Wire, by Garry Kilworth, is regularly $4.99 but has been discounted to just 99 cents today in the Amazon Kindle store.

Category: Historical Fiction

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

In 1870 an enterprise began in Australia that was breathtaking in its ambition: to construct a single galvanised iron wire between Adelaide and Darwin, crossing two thousand miles of virtually unexplored wilderness. This was the Overland Telegraph Line, using local trees as poles, thousands of them, and hundreds of men who would not return to civilization for two years or more. Some would not return at all.

Alex McKenzie is a young telegrapher who believes his chosen profession to be at the cutting edge of contemporary science. A man who knows that once the last pole is erected and the line is open from Adelaide, to Darwin, to London and on to New York, the world will have shrunk and messages that used to take four months from sender to receiver will then take only minutes. His hopes for the future, for him and the love of his life, Sally, rest on the success of this magnificent Australian achievement. However, there are those whose enmity he has aroused and who would not hesitate to rob him of his life simply because he represents all they hate: someone who has grabbed at his opportunities and has risen from farm labouring roots to man of science.

The Iron Wire: a novel of human hope and progress in a land where men die, women are widowed, and bushrangers live by the lie and the gun.

The God Organ, by Anthony J. Melchiorri, is regularly $2.99 but is discounted to just 99 cents today in the Amazon Kindle store.

Category: Thriller

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Immortality is within reach.

In 2063, a biotechnological revolution sweeps the nation. Behind this movement is Chicago-based medical giant LyfeGen. The company leads the biotech industry with their Sustain, an implantable artificial organ designed to grant its recipients near-immortality. But many of those recipients are suddenly dying.

Biomedical scientist Preston Carter developed the Sustain to improve and save lives. Yet there are others that would see him fail. Extreme religious groups, radical movements, and competing corporations would prefer to see LyfeGen collapse rather than allow “the god organ” to fundamentally alter medicine and the human body. In a race against time, Carter must learn to trust resourceful journalist Audrey Cook. She may hold the key to discovering who is sabotaging the Sustain. And with the organ already implanted in his own body, Carter must uncover the truth before he’s killed by his invention.

THE GOD ORGAN is a near-future medical thriller that takes the reader on a suspenseful ride filled with sinister conspiracies, intriguing biomedical science, and rampant corruption that will leave readers wondering just how dangerous becoming a god may really be.

The 5:2 Diet Low Calorie Easy Meals For One Cookbook, by Milly White, is regularly $2.99 but has been discounted to just 99 cents today in the Amazon Kindle store.

Category: Cooking

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

The 5:2 Diet is a weight-loss diet plan on which you just diet on a two days a week and then eat normally (but healthily) on the remaining 5 days, with no calorie counting on those days. This diet is so popular and successful because it’s:

• Simple
• Convenient
• Easy to follow.

The 5:2 diet also suits anyone who has struggled to maintain their will-power or become very bored of the routine when dieting over a sustained period of time. With the 5:2 diet plan, as you diet for just two (non-consecutive) days a week, you:

• only need to maintain will-power in short bursts
• don’t get bored as within 24 hrs you can eat whatever tickles your taste buds!

Cooking for 1 on the 5:2 Diet
Cooking for one on the 5:2 diet might seem like a thankless task, preparing food from scratch for just one person can seem like a lot of work and effort. What’s more, how do you scale down a recipe so that it not only meets your low-calorie needs but is also suitable for just one serving? For example, just how do you use a ¼ or ½ of a whole egg? Fortunately, The 5:2 Diet Low Calorie Easy Meals For One Cookbook solves that dilemma.

Category: Christian Historical Fiction

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

A Cat Out of Egypt: The Prequel to Yeshua’s Cat

“On a cold winter’s night when the heavens almost seemed to reach down and touch the Earth, a child was born in a stable . . . and many miles away, as her last kitten struggled into the world, the Great Cat Who Is Bast saw the star and wondered.”

C.L. Francisco’s new novel, A Cat Out of Egypt, is a magical tale of Jesus’ “lost” years in Egypt. The feline narrator, Miw, is an Egyptian cat from the great temple at Bubastis, born under the Christ Child’s star. After corrupt priests plot her death, Miw escapes with Tikos, priestess of Bast, to a Jewish village, where Miw’s battle against a deadly scorpion wins the gratitude of Yeshua’s family. But when Tikos faces down an Egyptian mob, she betrays their location. She and Miw flee south, and Yeshua’s family, warned in a dream to leave Egypt, go with them. Pursuit escalates until both Egyptians and Romans are spreading nets to catch Miw, and a cadre of dark priests who stalked Yeshua at his birth stumble onto his trail while tracking Miw. A powerful Nabataean caravan leader joins Miw in defending Yeshua and his family against forces determined to destroy the child before he can reach Israel. The peril overshadowing his friends drives Yeshua deep within himself to realize many of his gifts at an early age, quickening self-awareness far beyond his years.

A Cat Out of Egypt is the second in the series, Yeshua’s Cats, the prequel to The Gospel According to Yeshua’s Cat, a story of Jesus of Nazareth told by a cat he carries hidden in his robes. Yeshua’s Cat has received consistently enthusiastic reviews since its publication in November, 2013, including 4½-star reviews from both Indie Reader and Self Publishing Review. Like Yeshua’s Cat, A Cat Out of Egypt combines theological subtlety, historical accuracy, and the perceptive observations of a companion cat.

Now she must find the artifact, navigate the pitfalls of a stiffly polite London, keep her time-traveling origins a secret, and resist her growing attraction to Lord Montagu, the Vicious Viscount so hot, he curls her toes.

To Lord Montagu nothing makes more sense than keeping his distance from the strange but lovely Colonial. However, when his scheme for revenge reaches a stalemate, he convinces Isabelle to masquerade as his fiancée. What he did not bargain on is being drawn to her intellectually as well as physically.

Lord Montagu’s now constant presence overthrows her equilibrium and her common sense. Isabelle thought all she wanted was to return home, but as passion flares between them, she must decide when her true home–as well as her heart–lies.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Louisiana Hotshot is the FIRST book in the Talba Wallis series by Edgar-Award winning author Julie Smith

WANTED: HOTSHOT P.I. WITH NEAR SUPER-HUMAN SKILLS.

Confirmed grump Eddie Valentino placed the ad. Hotshot twenty-something Talba Wallis knew exactly how to answer it.

And thus was born the dynamic duo of New Orleans private detectives, one cynical, sixty-five-year-old Luddite white dude with street smarts, and one young, bright-eyed, Twenty-First century African-American female poet, performance artist, mistress of disguise, and computer jock extraordinaire. Think Queen Latifah and Danny DeVito.

In Louisiana Hotshot, their job is to hunt down a sociopath and pedophile who’s molested the fourteen-year-old daughter of their client, hangs out on the ragged edges of the rap and recording industries, and has more powerful allies than a Cabinet member.

But both detectives have unfinished business from the past—in Eddie’s case, something he deeply regrets; in Talba’s, a personal mystery, one so frightening no one will help her investigate. But she knows she won’t sleep till she solves it—and the truth will change her forever.

Although written by an old age pensioner, non-coffin dodgers should not be put off by this. Everyone will be old someday, and there are valuable lessons in coping with old age to be learned here. Stairlift to Heaven ill advise you on how to cope with the multitude of maladies that accompany advancing years (including the aforementioned prostate gland problem and the countless bladder examinations it brings with it); learn how to cope with increasing forgetfulness; how to become adept at dealing with junk mail; how not to go about capturing a Christmas goose; how to cope with increasing forgetfulness….sorry, I forgot I already mentioned that: discover why you might be well advised to avoid swimming lessons; why you might like to give faith healers the widest of a wide berths; and how to deal with the neighbours from hell.

The SECOND deliciously sneaky mystery in Anthony- and Edgar-nominated Tony Dunbar’s Tubby Dubonnet series.

Tony Dunbar is the rare author able to make you laugh and shake in your shoes at the same time.

New Orleans lawyer Tubby Dubonnet is bored. He wants to bill enough hours to pay his alimony and keep his daughter in college, with enough left over for an occasional drink and a good meal, but he longs for something different and exciting.

Sure, researching licensing law for the new casino will keep trout meunière on the table, but what could be more tedious? (Unless, of course, the client turns out to be connected.) Meanwhile, there’s the estate of an old friend who controls some dock leases on the wharf. And he agrees to help his daughter’s environmental group stop illegal dumping in the river.

Ho-hum, thinks our hero. But suddenly all three cases begin to converge in an entirely ominous way–the toxic dumping, the dock leases, and the too-good-to-be-true casino job. How is that possible? Could it be Tubby’s been set up as the fall guy in a Mob effort to expand its gambling empire?

Suddenly Tubby IS doing something different and exciting — he’s running for his life!

Not so much, thinks Starlite, the talented young vet he has hired over the objection of others. He is prickly, remote, critical, and Starlite, anxious to please and accustomed to success, is unable to win his approval.

When Renny and Starlite must work together to save a cruelly orphaned and badly wounded baby rhino, they must face the secrets they both hide–and the attraction they can no longer deny.

A KISS AT KIHALI is a story of healing and second chances filled with drama and danger that lead to a happy ending. A KISS AT KIHALI contains no sex or cursing and will appeal to readers who love women’s fiction and sensitive romance and who care about the environment and the future of endangered species.

Be Right Back (BRB), by Bob Kat, is free today in the Amazon Kindle store, and this book has received an average user rating of 4.9 out of 5 stars based on 15 customer reviews.

Category: Young Adult Romance

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Change the past, Save the future.

Be Right Back (BRB) won the Young Adult genre in the Readers’ Favorite book competition for 2013.

Four high school friends are able to do two things no one else on the planet can do . . . talk with dead people and time travel to the past. It’s early summer and boredom is setting in. They have just returned from an adventure where they travelled through time back to 1966 to solve a mystery and save a popular high school girl’s life.

Kelly, Scott, Austin and Zoey gather in Scott’s lab, listening to the old radio that Thomas Edison had invented and called “The Telephone to the Dead”. As they slowly turn the dial they hear hundreds of sad, lonely voices of souls that have passed but apparently never moved on, pleading for help. When they first discovered the radio in Kelly’s aunt’s garage, they had been touched by the cries and pleas coming from its speakers, but they had no way to go back in time to help them. That is, until Scott reveals an invention of his own . . . a time travel app. They’ve tested it only once, but that first trip had been successful . . . if you ignore the fact that Zoey and Kelly had almost gotten killed by a serial killer. Even though they returned with a few scrapes and bruises, they are eager to go on a new adventure and help solve another mystery.

A very young girl’s voice comes through, saying that her whole family has been murdered on an island just off the east coast of Florida.

The teens look the island up on Google Maps and see that it is completely deserted which contradicts the story they’re getting from the Spirit Radio. But it’s a beautiful island called Crystal Key with a stretch of beach that, unlike Ft. Myers Beach, is not crowded with tourists and kids. The teens decide to pop in, spend a nice day on the beach, check out the island to see if there is any truth to the girl’s story, then pop right back. It sounds like a great plan.

From the very beginning, things go wrong when Scott miscalculates their landing and they end up splashing into the Atlantic Ocean. After swimming for their lives, they collapse on the beach that is, indeed, beautiful. But it isn’t deserted. They find the little girl, her family and a half dozen more people living in a sprawling Florida-style home owned by a menacing man named Manuel. He gives them no opportunity to escape and insists that they stay in the house. As they try to find a way out, Kelly tries to ignore her attraction to Austin, who clearly isn’t interested in a romance. Besides, just days before she went on her very first date . . . with Scott. How could she have such strong feelings for two boys? And then there is Zoey who is hot for Austin, but flirting shamelessly with Scott. Then people start dying and all they can think about is saving the families and themselves. Are they destined to be a madman’s latest victims? Their time travel adventure to a tropical paradise may turn out to be their last.

The Boy who Lit up the Sky, by J. Naomi Ay, is free today in the Amazon Kindle store, and this book has received an average user rating of 4.2 out of 5 stars based on 46 customer reviews.

Category: Science Fiction / Fantasy

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Lydia Kalila, the Princess Royal of Mishnah, is forced into marriage with the son of her country’s mortal enemy for the sole purpose of producing an heir. Duty comes before personal choice for a princess, especially when her country has been at war for more than a thousand years. Lydia’s pregnancy removes her brother and new husband from their respective lines of succession, placing her yet unborn infant at the head of both queues. No one is happy about this, especially Lydia who dies during childbirth from wounds caused by the talon-like toenails of her very strange newborn son.

Grief stricken at the loss of his daughter, the Mishnese King hastily sends Senya, his infant grandson off to a decrepit inner city orphanage with the intent to retrieve him much later when things got sorted out. At the orphanage, Senya is protected by the invalid Sister Meri who instantly falls in love with the little fellow. She’s not bothered at all by his strange telekinetic and telepathic powers, flickering pupil-less silver eyes, or wicked clawed toenails. The House Father takes a shine to the lad too, and when Senya is six years old, he is summoned to the Father’s chamber. The Father ends up in flames, forcing Meri and Senya out into a snow storm running for their lives.

Thus begins the tale of Senya, a prince created to be king of a planet but tossed aside until his twelfth birthday when Lt. Taner, a Royal Guard detective is sent to retrieve him. It is unclear to all whether Senya is the product of something good or something evil, but in either case, it is very apparent that he is something more than just Lydia Kalila’s son.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Louisiana Lament is the THIRD book in the Talba Wallis mystery series by Edgar-winning author Julie Smith.

Nobody knew who she really was … but her parties were to die for!

They’d be Queen Latifah and Danny DeVito if this were a movie. In Louisiana Lament, they’re P.I.s Talba Wallis and Eddie Valentino—Talba’s young, African-American, computer-brilliant, bright-eyed, bushy-tailed, and a noted poet by night; Eddie’s pushing seventy, white, hopelessly tech-challenged, and pretty much burned out. Somehow, they make it work—with Talba’s tech-and-street smarts, and Eddie’s old-school hard-earned savvy, they even complement each other.

One stormy day Talba gets an emergency call from Janessa, the sister she barely knows, and arrives to find a body floating in a swimming pool—the mortal husk of Allyson Brown, known in New Orleans literary circles as the Girl Gatsby. Like Gatsby, Allyson was one of those mysterious rich people who move to town, give amazing parties, and seem made of moonbeams.

Investigating, Talba finds the reality behind the Gatsby glamour. Allyson was a con artist who neglected her children, ignored her bills, and lied like a rug. But she wasn’t the only bad actor on the local literary scene. Fellow poet Rashad leads Talba a merry chase, leaving a trail of clues in the form of poetry, while novelists engage in fisticuffs, unseemly preening, and unforgivable arrogance.

Before it’s all over, Talba finds out just how seamy, petty, and downright murderous her fellow literati can be.

Category: Young Adult / Supernatural

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Part X-Files, part Freaks and Geeks, and totally ’80s!

In the fall of 1984, Cold War tensions between Washington and Moscow are close to breaking.

But in sleepy Gainesville, Florida, fourteen-year-old Janis Graystone is mainly worried about starting high school, earning a spot on the varsity soccer team, and keeping her older sister from running her life. And then there are her nighttime experiences. Experiences where she awakens in her backyard — out of her body — with the disturbing sense that someone is watching her.

For Scott Spruel, the start of high school means the chance to start over. And he’s willing to ditch everything — computer hacking, Dungeons & Dragons marathons, even his comic book collection (well, except for his X-Men) — if it means getting closer to Janis, the secret love of his life. But what about the eerie delay on his telephone, a delay he senses through powers he is only beginning to understand?

As clocks tick down, Janis and Scott will need the other’s help. But first they’ll have to find one another and that means traversing Thirteenth Street High’s caste system, which can be as brutal as it is unforgiving…

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

On this island, there are no survivors.

Lost meets Treasure Island in this riveting account of castaways on a desert island hunted on all sides. A rare blend of breathtaking action, deep character development, corporeal horror, and a believable story line brings this modern adventure to life.

When the cruise ship Princess Anne sinks at night in the middle of the Atlantic, strange, white-haired natives pluck seven survivors from the water. Delivered to a barren volcanic island and forced to work, the survivors disappear one by one as the natives, and the island itself, turn hostile. An old betrayal tears apart the native political structure as a hurricane threatens to bring to life the deadly secret of the island. With time running out, the natives and survivors alike form and break alliances to escape by any means possible.

Fear the natives. Fear the Island. Fear each other. Fear yourself.
If you miss Lost, don’t miss Red Sand. All the action, suspense, betrayal, and mystery you could ask for with scenes so swiftly terrifying you’ll gasp for air. Deeply human characters draw you in until horribly detailed descriptions end them. You’ll shut your eyes when it happens, but you’ll tell everyone about it the next day.
