Hanchart Land, by Becky Barker. (Still free?)

Get this contemporary romance for free today, from accomplished romance author Becky Barker.

"Ms. Barker has once again woven a poignant love story, added a bit of suspense, and finished with a story well told." -- M. Nix

"Becky Barker's HANCHART LAND is an awesome story... The passionate desire between Luke and Susan has burned bright over the years. You just know they are perfect for each other." ~ Chrissy, Romance Junkies.

When Shane died, Susan was left with nothing but a mountain of debts and bitter memories of a marriage to a man she'd despised. Even in death, his will kept her from making things right between her and his family. Alone and broke, she had no choice but to sell the Hanchart land in order to survive.

Luke Hanchart hadn't shed a tear over his cousin's untimely demise. And he wouldn't stand by and watch a piece of his family heritage sold to an outsider. He intended to find a way around his cousin's will even if it meant marrying his widow.

What neither of them realized was that with the simple words "I do", they were not only righting the wrongs of the past, but opening the door to a tempestuous future. Now nothing stood in the way of the passion that had smoldered between them for years.

As they sealed their union with a kiss, sparks ignited and continued to burn.

165 pages, with a 4-star rating from 25 reviews.

They call us Thought Thieves, but it's not like we have a choice. All the sick twisted things rolling around in people's heads, we can't help but hear.

That's why they rounded us up, stuck us in this little town. It's to make you feel safe. But they can't keep us here forever.

It's Day 100 and it's all gonna end. One way or another, I'm getting out of Brightside.

Wine & Roses, by Susan R. Hughes. (Still free?)

Here's another contemporary romance, this one is a light paranormal story clocking in at 125 pages. Free today!

"Not many romance novels deal with the issue of an aging single woman who is attractive because of her age, and I found this topic very refreshing. The sizzling love scenes are well conceived and composed, and I relished every word of them. There were some twists in the plot that I didn't expect, and I enjoyed the way the ghost story interweaved with the love story, culminating in a powerful and absorbing ending. I highly recommend this novel." -- Beth, Amazon reviewer

A widow at 42, Abby Wells has poured her heart into the restoration of The Roses Inn, a historic Niagara-on-the Lake establishment reputedly haunted by a 19th-century ghost. In walks Jason Brinleigh, a gorgeous winery owner nine years Abby's junior, intent on buying the place from her. The transaction falls by the wayside as Abby and Jason fall for each other. But the scars left by past loves run deep, challenging them both to surrender their hearts. When unexpected events threaten to tear them apart, will it take a little intervention from the spirit world to set things right?

Blood never lies, but people do...

With the King of Altera on his deathbed, all eyes are on his only child, eighteen-year-old Angeline Robart. The crown princess is called from her studies to return to her father's side, but is kidnapped en route by Connor, a mysterious rogue who has his own reasons for becoming involved in the high stakes game of political intrigue.

Facing the consequences of a freak accident that even Connor could not prevent, Angeline must travel a dangerous path to regain control of her fate and her kingdom. Her impossible choice forces her to rely on the man who epitomizes everything generations of her family tried to destroy.

As the last of the Robart bloodline, Angeline discovers that enemies she thought long conquered have been lying in wait for just such an opportunity as her father's death to turn events to their advantage. Worse yet, by uncovering those secrets, Angeline is forced to confront the possibility that no one ever expected her to take the throne in anything but title alone.

But the more she learns about Connor, the more she realizes they have far more in common than she ever expected, and that could make him just the ally she needs.

Heiress of Lies (Bloodtruth #1) is the first book in the Bloodtruth series. The Queen's Betrayal (Bloodtruth #2) is available now!
