Great plots and twists! I've read Dark Space 1,2,3 by Jasper T. Scott and Pennsylvania Omnibus (1-5) by Michael Bunker. Both are great novels with unexpected plots and twists.

Scott's Dark Space series starts like a typical "humans have expanded to many, many systems and now encounter an enemy alien race", but quickly transforms into an interesting tale of a defeated humanity trying to survive. I am currently reading book 4 "Revenge".

Michael Bunker's "Pennsylvania" is another that has an interesting premise - that the Amish society we know today has survived substantially unchanged in a future where colonization of other planets is possible. But again some interesting twists keep the reader involved throughout the book. Eagerly awaiting "Oklahoma" the next in the series.

My enjoyable reads of these 2 authors bodes well for the rest of the stories in "Stars & Empire". -- Amazon reviewer

"The Gray Tower Trilogy," by Alesha Escobar

What a unique take on historical fantasy fiction! The first book (The Tower's Alchemist) in Alesha Escobar's series is normally $2.99 but is available for free download today! And Books 2 and 3 are on sale for 99 cents. Check 'em out!

The Tower's Alchemist (The Gray Tower Trilogy Book 1), by Alesha Escobar

"Historical fantasy fun! I have run into the idea of Hitler using occult magic before, so I was curious to see how Ms. Escobar handled the concept. I was very pleased with the result. The alternate reality presented in The Tower's Alchemist "feels" real. There is lots of action as our heroine Isabella is an undercover agent for British SOE and spends most of the book in occupied France. Isabella is a sympathetic character, in part because she is the narrator of the book. Her character has added depth from the mystery of her father's disappearence and her conflicted relationship with the Grey Tower of wizards. I also enjoyed many of the supporting characters, and hope to see more of the surviving ones in the sequels. And there are plenty of loose ends and mysteries left for the next volume." -- Amazon reviewer

Wizard Vs. Nazi Warlock Vampires.

It's a very different World War II.

The Nazis have unleashed occult forces throughout Europe and the Allies are forced to recruit and employ wizards to counter their attacks.

Among them is the battle weary spy, Isabella George, a Gray Tower dropout trained in Alchemy. Longing for retirement and a life of peace, she accepts one final job--extract a deadly warlock from Nazi occupied France and prevent him from unleashing an alchemical weapon that will devour the continent.

But France is crawling with the Cruenti, vampiric warlocks who feed off other wizards. When things don't go according to plan, one Cruenti sets his deadly eyes on her.

Betrayal is everywhere. Even some of her closest allies cannot be fully trusted. Worse still, she finds, she can't even trust herself. She becomes a woman torn between her charismatic spy lover who offers her what she desires most, and one of her closest confidants, whose soft seductive eyes hold deadly secrets about her past, and the Gray Tower itself.

Plans within plans. Plots versus counter plots. Heists gone wrong, sword-wielding Catholic priests, and the greatest manipulation of history that has ever been seen, is just a taste of what Isabella George is in for, in her final mission.

A Game Of Brides (Montana Born Brides Book 6), by Megan Crane. (Still free?)

"Really enjoyed reading another story set in Marietta, Montana. Emmy came home for her sisters wedding after being gone for 10 years. The first person she sees is Griffin, who broke her heart all those years ago. I absolutely loved this book. It was so much fun reading it and how they resolved what had happened 10 years ago. Looking forward to more of her books." -- Amazon reviewer

Emmy Mathis is sure of three things:

1. Her sister Margery’s three-week wedding extravaganza at their grandmother’s Marietta, Montana home will be over-the-top ridiculous.
2. She’d much prefer to stay home in Atlanta in a pair of sweats.
3. And she absolutely, positively, won’t feel even a hint of a spark for Griffin Hyatt, grandson of her beloved grandmother’s best friend and the architect of the most embarrassing night of her life ten years ago.

But Emmy is dead wrong about number three. The moment she and Griffin lock eyes again, the passion that’s always smoldered between them flames. And they aren’t kids any more, so why should they deny the desire that sears through them both?

Is this no more than a wedding fling between two people with too much chemistry and an overload of history, or can Emmy try to build a new life from the ashes of their past? And if Griffin is truly really free of his fiance, why is he a finalist in the town’s Wedding Giveaway? Emmy can’t answer those questions, but she does know that Griffin has the power to burn her like no one else.

Still, how can Emmy walk away from the one man she’s always loved now that she knows what she’s been missing?

The Queen of Carleon (The Legends of Avalyne Book 1), by Linda Thackeray. (Still 1.99?)

"This is a wondrous enchanting tale. Books of this genre are one of my favorites to read and this one is amazing. The characters are outstanding and the showing of such loyalty and dedication to friendship is inspiring. The strength of the queen to protect her son as well as her kingdom is so endearing and the love shared by her and Dare is breath taking. I feel as if I know each of them and they are so defined and perfect for this story. The endless battle between good and evil is fought once more and it simply grabs you and pulls you in. The writing is clear and has such a calm flow it keeps you reading. I enjoyed the humorous banter throughout the book and the love and respect is wonderful. I highly recommend this book to everyone who loves a great fantasy." -- Amazon reviewer

Avalyne is at peace.

The Shadow War has come and gone and the kingdom of Carleon is now restored. King Dare, a mortal man has finally wedded his elven love Arianne. As they prepare to usher in a new era of prosperity across the land, the Queen happily announces the impending arrival of an heir.

Arianne's joy is short-lived when she discovers that an ancient evil has emerged from the wreckage of war with a monstrous plan for her baby. Determined to protect her very mortal husband, Arianne embarks on a quest with her two companions, the warrior maid Celene of Angarad and Keira of the Green, to journey to the far corners of Avalyne before the enemy can plant a seed of evil in the heart of her unborn son.

Unlit Star, by Lindy Zart. (Still 0.99?)

"I have no words. I felt so many emotions while reading it.... I laughed... I giggled... I cried. More like BAWLED, really. It was impossible not to connect with Rivers and Delilah. You can't help but feel their raw emotions as you are reading. The book deals with hard issues and shows the truly raw feelings and struggles that come with them. Well done." -- Amazon reviewer

We are not guaranteed anything, not even this life.

Rivers Young is the popular guy untouchable by reality. He is like a star—bright, consuming, otherworldly. The thing about stars, though, is that they eventually fall, and he is no different.

He falls far and he falls hard.

Delilah Bana is the outcast enshrouded in all of life's ironies. Alone, in the dark, like dusk as it falls on the world. When Rivers hits the ground, she is the night that catches him. In the darkness, they meld into something beautiful that shines like the sun.

Only, the greater the star is, the shorter its lifespan.

Eternity: An Inspirational Romance Novel (The Friendship Series, Book 1), by Staci Stallings. (Still free?)

"Stallings' book Eternity is certainly a roller coaster ride. It takes you through the twists and turns of each relationship. From Aaron's realization of his feelings for Harmony to Harmony's struggle with her feelings for Drew AND Aaron. You are never sure where you may end up or what is around the next corner. The characters in Eternity, as in all of Stallings' books, are so real. They actually could be the person sitting right next to you. Their lives are not perfect. They are faced with temptation, sin and choices. Do they make the right decisions? Do we always make the right decisions? The characters are real just like you and I. Eternity is a sweet romance that will warm your heart." -- Amazon reviewer

Note from the Author: Christians are not immune to the world’s pressures, and sometimes we go to church without the Good News penetrating into our “real lives.” We get swayed by messages—overt and covert—about who we are and who we should be. We think that God does not speak to these concerns other than to say, “Do this” or “Don’t do that.” It is only when we look beneath the nice words spoken so eloquently from the pulpit that we realize God gave us the guidelines because they are so very practical. They keep us, if we let them, from stumbling into heartbreaking situations. The two stories in The Friendship Series aim to take the reader on a journey with Christians who in the beginning don’t seem to let their Christianity inform their encounters with the world to Christians who realize that God showed us His Way because it works—not just in theory but in real, actual, everyday life.

Aaron Foster thought he had the perfect life until his fiancee walked out of their apartment and then back in again with his new roommate. In desperation Aaron and his best friend, Harmony Jordan, devise The Plan to save Drew's heart from getting shattered, but when The Plan succeeds beyond their wildest expectation, it could spell heartache for them all.

Harmony Jordan has loved Aaron Foster since the first minute he rescued her from a literal computer crash. The only problem is, Aaron only sees her as a friend. Trying to be content to be the person Aaron goes to when life crashes around him, Harmony puts her heart on the line for him to help him rescue his in-for-real-trouble new roommate. However, she never expected the roommate to fall for her, or for her to fall for him. Now what?

“Eternity,” a gem among Contemporary Romance novels, proves romances can be melded with inspirational books to produce something truly amazing and unexpected. Delving into and through the subject most contemporary romance books are predicated upon—free and easy sex, “Eternity” shows that romance novels don’t have to have characters hopping into bed to be romantic, fun, and entertaining. Further, it seeks to dispel the myth that all romantic relationships must start and end in the bedroom. As romance books go, it has all the romance in a clean, inspirational read that any lover of romance novels will appreciate.
