Complicated Creatures Part One: Romantic Suspense Thriller, by Alexi Lawless. (Still free?)

"What a pleasant surprise this was! For a debut novel it's a very well developed story written in a sophisticated, engaging style. The author has a style of her own - complex, rich and sensual descriptions mixed with a lot of action. The thriller element was very engaging and kept me involved throughout the story. There was a particular plot twist in the end that I didn't see coming and it makes me very anxious about the next book in the series. I'm glad a took a chance on this book, it's a well written, complex and intriguing contemporary romance with some military/suspense elements and I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys such stories. Alexi Lawless is an author I'll be watching for in the future." -- Amazon Reviewer

Interview with the Author:

Q: So, what prompted you to write the Complicated Creatures series?
A: It's simple, really. I'm a huge fan of romance, romantic suspense and action thrillers, and I felt there was something really missing in combining these genres. I also wanted to write a really strong female protagonist who, while impressive, is incredibly relatable, smart, self-reliant and gutsy.
Q: Who or what inspired the lead character, Samantha Wyatt?
A: Honestly, I just took what I liked most about the male leads in some of my favorite vigilante justice action thriller stories and turned the whole thing on its head. I started thinking, "What if James Bond or Jack Reacher were a woman? What if she was the head of a multinational corporation? What if she led a team of commandos--what would that be like?"
As I considered all the possibilities, I saw a woman with true grit, style and the kind of savvy we admire but rarely see in female characters. And it makes for an intriguing question--what kind of man can get a woman like that? And would she even let him?
Q: Does your series have an intended audience?
A: Sure. YOU. This series starts out as an international romantic suspense, but it's definitely got plenty of action, racy thrills and a tantalizing bit of mystery. It's written from both a woman and a man's perspective, and features a really fantastic supporting cast of characters with their own unique personalities. Anyone who loves Damn Good Fiction will enjoy this series.
Q: When is the next installment coming out?
A: Part Two: Hell or High Water is already out and available. The prequel to the series, Goddess Rising, is coming out soon. Readers and fans can stay tuned to updates, excerpts and new releases at my website: http://alexilawless.com/

Marrow, by Preston Norton. (Still 4.99?)

"I know when I am really into a book, because I will stop reading at certain parts and wait until I have a secluded area and plenty of time, with no interruptions, so I can get everything I can out of a scene. While reading Marrow, I had many moments like that. The writing style I found to be quirky, and full of originality. It was just plain, good writing and it flowed. The way the protagonist, Marrow, describes certain places and people made me laugh. I loved his cocky attitude, and his good heart. It had great twists here and there, and I loved that the story unfolded in a non predictable way." -- Amazon Reviewer

"If you can't get enough of superhero and comic book movies, read Marrow now! It's like stuffing an action movie into your head. The twists will surprise you." -- Adam Glendon Sidwell, Bestselling Author of CHUM and EVERTASTER.

"Fans of comics, superheroes, and stories with twist after twist will love Marrow. It's filled with nods and homages to classic heroes, yet still manages to put a unique stamp on the genre." -- Jacob Gowans, Bestselling Author of the PSION BETA Series.

The two Supers' powers and personalities clash as they are forced to overcome their differences to prevent the return of Cosmo City's most notorious foe, a supervillain so powerful, no one will survive the cataclysm he is sure to unleash.
