CAPTURING THE COWBOY'S HEART, by Lindsey Brookes. (Still free?)

"This was a lighthearted romance with a slight mystery element, and it was an easy and enjoyable read. Cade and Lacy both come to the relationship with problems, and once they learn to trust each other they're great together. I enjoyed the humor." -- Amazon Reviewer

After losing his wife in an accident two years before, not long after he'd been forced from the circuit by an injury, thirty-two-year-old Cade Tyler, ex-rodeo champion, thinks life has thrown him more than lemons. But life isn’t done...it sends him Lacy Dalton.

She’s a reporter.

He hates reporters.

She’s pushy.

He hates pushy.

She’s sexy.

He...well, he just won’t let himself think of her that way.

The more Lacy learns about Cade’s past, the more she finds herself wanting to prove to him that not all reporters are bloodthirsty vultures. But her growing attraction to him puts not only her heart in jeopardy, but her life as well, because someone is out to ruin Cade and will do anything to make that happen.

The Stonegate Sword, by Harry James Fox. (Still 0.99?)

"Citizens of the world have retreated to a medieval mindset and travel by horses and wagons instead of cars, planes, and trains. I truly enjoyed this whole story as well as the spiritual background to it. I've been looking for a good book like this for a very long time. The ideas are unique, the plot is immense and filled with characters you'll never forget and fall in love with, and you'll want a sequel as soon as it ends. " -- Amazon Reviewer


Do you love historical fiction, knights in armor and romance? How about a tale with all of these set in future North America? Escape to a passionate world of danger, love, war and redemption -- the world of Stonegate.




The Old Empire is gone


But tales still tell of marvels from long ago-flying machines and devices run by the power of lightning. Now grass grows in the streets and rusted hulks are all that remain of the proud machines. A new time of troubles now threatens. The free towns of the rugged mountains and plains are in the path of conquest. The Prophet's armies are coming, filled with hatred and armed with terrible, rediscovered weapons. Donald of Fisher, outcast and alone, is in the path of the march, searching for Rachel, who has been captured by the Raiders-minions of the Prophet. But how can he find and rescue one small captive in a wilderness teeming with enemies? And even if he succeeds, should he wield his sword beside the tiny band of defenders? Is Donald to become yet another victim, or is he, just possibly, the deliverer promised in prophecy? What can one person do in the face of a war that will shape the future of a continent?


Brilliantly crafted and epic in scope, this is a book you won't want to put down!

In Book 1 of the MURDER IN MARIN Mysteries:

Warren Bradley, renowned as the local gadfly In the picture-perfect community of Sausalito, California, is esteemed by his admirers and despised by his detractors. But for love of his caramel chicken and cherry fudge brownies, everyone has a story to share regarding their fellow citizens--

Stories that too often find their way into his weekly gossip-filled newspaper column, "Heard About Town."

When the great chef and his admirers, the Sausalito Ladies of Liberty, take offense to a newly arrived Manhattan power couple, their insular world of tasty sauces and stinging insults leads to deadly results.

Everyone has their own theory about who killed Warren. But it takes the combined efforts of Rob Timmons, the local newspaper publisher, and Eddie Austin, his childhood friend and Marin County's top detective, to unravel this tale of delicious dishes and malicious deception.

The Pursuit of Lucy Banning,A Novel (Avenue of Dreams Book 1), by Olivia Newport. (Still free?)

"Ms. Newport had a way of making you feel you are right beside the characters while reading the story. I feel I understand more about Chicago during the 1890's due to this story. I am thankful for strong women like Lucy Banning to have forged a path for the strong women of today." -- Amazon Reviewer

She has a secret to keep. But will she give her heart away?
Lucy Banning may live on the exclusive Prairie Avenue among Chicago's rich and famous, but her heart lies elsewhere. Expected to marry an up-and-coming banker from a respected family, Lucy fears she will be forced to abandon her charity work and squeeze herself into the mold of the well-dressed wife who spends most of her time and money redecorating.

When she meets Will, an unconventional young architect who is working on plans for the upcoming 1893 World's Fair, Lucy imagines a life lived on her own terms. Can she break away from her family's expectations? And will she ever be loved for who she truly is?

Get swept away into the lavish world of Chicago's high society as Olivia Newport brings to life an age of glitz and grandeur, stark social contrasts, and one woman who dares to cross class lines for what she believes.


"Hats off to Olivia Newport. Her characters are compelling, and Chicago's history comes alive on each page. Readers will feel like they've been transported back to 1892."--Andrea Boeshaar, author of the Seasons of Redemption series

"Lucy Banning is my kind of heroine, pushing against the strictures of her times of the 1890s. Her love and caring wrap around your heart. A fine read."--Lauraine Snelling, author of the Red River of the North series and the Wild West Wind series

"Newport brings to life historical Chicago with fascinating insight into the wealthy families of Prairie Avenue. She gives us a worthy heroine who struggles to break free of the constraints of her time and offers grace to those less fortunate. The Pursuit of Lucy Banning is a beautiful and sweet romance that will touch readers' hearts."--Jody Hedlund, award-winning author of The Preacher's Bride and The Doctor's Lady

Olivia Newport's novels twist through time to discover where faith and passions meet. Her husband and two twentysomething children provide welcome distraction from the people stomping through her head on their way into her books. She chases joy in stunning Colorado at the foot of the Rockies, where daylilies grow as tall as she is.


REVIEWS:
"With attention to historical detail and an artful sense of place, Olivia Newport gives readers a fascinating glimpse into the way the wealthy interpreted the 1893 World's Fair--and the roles of women in the world. The Pursuit of Lucy Banning is a compassionate coming-of-age romance with a spunky, determined heroine and a Happy Ever After that's satisfyingly sweet."--USA Today, Happily Ever After blog

"In a new historical series, Avenue of Dreams, readers head to the Chicago World's Fair of 1893 where they will be treated to the grandeur and charm of the wealthy and the not-so-wealthy. In this story thick with secrets and lies, Newport's characters are by turn charming, conniving or trying to be true to themselves in spite of what society expects of them."--RT Book Reviews
