Free Kindle books! (Oct 9)

Good morning! Here's our selection of free Kindle books for today.

Angels Mark (The Serena Wilcox Mysteries), by Natalie Buske Thomas. (Still free?)

A free thriller, and the latest in the Serena Wilcox series, this political suspense novel is praised for its writing and tight plot.

"Evocative storytelling spins into fast-paced political thriller, leaving readers not knowing whom to trust. Natalie steps on all the right toes... Whilst weaving a crafted story that is every conspiracy theorist's worst nightmare or apocryphal dream." -- James Michael Emery & Shepherd Black


Serena Wilcox and her family have destroyed their old home and faked their deaths to go off the grid under new identities, after obtaining insider information about a threat to the United States. The attack does indeed happen, and after the resulting war, America is geographically divided between two governing presidents: John Williams is conservative and Japanese-American Ann Kinji is liberal. While the new government structure is still in its infancy, Serena uncovers a conspiracy that could get her killed. Futuristic America is in the hands of former private detective Serena Wilcox, a scary prospect for sure!

Conservatives, liberals and independents will all find themselves in this book. The controversial scene "a private meeting of the two presidents" is alone worth the read. By the end of the book, all ideologies will see who the real winners and losers are.

312 pages, with a 4.8-star rating from 11 reviews.



Broken Build (Silicon Valley Romantic Suspense), by Rachelle Ayala. (Still free?)

This book is described as a "twisty, techy romantic suspense" novel. Author Rachelle Ayala worked as software engineer and spikes this story with an insider's technological details.

"A smart & fascinating read with vivid writing and a very likeable main character (Jen) who is strong, intelligent and independent, but also has a vulnerability that is perhaps what endeared her to me. The book kicks off with suspense and mystery in abundance, there is something for everyone here, be it the mystery, technology or the romance that draws you in." -- Milly, Amazon reviewer


When a woman wrongs a man, can a man forgive and love?


Jen Jones hides a horrible secret behind her new degree, toned body, and exciting job at Silicon Valley's hottest startup - until a man linked to her past is killed in a hit-and-run.

CEO and founder Dave Jewell is about to land a huge deal. He doesn't need blood on his car, threatening phone calls, and Jen wrapped in broken code and blackmail.

A gang of thugs hunts Jen, and she takes refuge in Dave's protective arms. Together, they must thwart a killer and rescue an innocent victim from their past. Love blossoms, but a damaging revelation points straight at Jen, threatening to tear them apart forever.



376 pages, with a 4.8-star rating from 8 reviews.



Arctic Wargame (Justin Hall # 1), by Ethan Jones. (Still free?)

If you ask me, we need more stories about Canadian secret agents! The Canadian Intelligence Service was modeled after Britain's MI-6, and in this novel Ethan Jones introduces us to agent Justin Hall.

"Arctic Wargame puts unique characters in an unusual place, which is becoming more important to the entire world. There's a lot of action in a very cold, but very important part of the world." -- Larry Bond, author of New York Times bestselling thrillers Vortex, Cauldron, and The Enemy Within, and co-author of Red Storm Rising with Tom Clancy


Canadian Intelligence Service Agent Justin Hall--combat-hardened in operations throughout Northern Africa--has been demoted after a botched mission in Libya.

When two foreign icebreakers appear in Canadian Arctic waters, Justin volunteers for the reconnaissance mission, eager to return to the field. His team discovers a foreign weapons cache deep in the Arctic, but they are not aware that a spy has infiltrated the Department of National Defence.

The team begins to unravel a treasonous plan against Canada, but they fall under attack from one of their own. Disarmed and stripped of their survival gear, they are stranded in a remote location. Now the team must race against time not only to save themselves, but their country.

Arctic Wargame is an action-packed spy thriller in the bestselling tradition of Portrait of a Spy, Rules of Betrayal and The Bourne Identity. Readers will enjoy a great tale of courage, fear and betrayal.

The bonus content includes the prologue and the first six chapters of Tripoli's Target, the second novel in the Justin Hall series, which came out on October 4.



334 pages, with a 4-star rating from 29 reviews.



Splintered Energy (The Colors), by Arlene Webb. (Still free?)

Try this "fiction/suspense/romance" novel free today! It's the first in a four-book series.

Note: some reviews indicate that the romance parts of the story get quite steamy, so please be aware of that before you decide to download.

"It will make you laugh, cry, sigh with satisfaction and moan with frustration." -- Bluevitriol


Splintered Energy is the first in a four book series and not a stand-alone story. Book 2, The R Word, picks up where Splintered Energy leaves off. House of Seven, book 3, leads to book 4, Under Color, the final in the series.

Waves of pure energy are quite happy hanging in the cosmos, traveling at the speed of light to brighten up the sky--until dawn breaks. Literally.

When sentient light fractures, it zaps into human bodies and becomes trapped. Without any memories to guide them, a handful of confused beings whose skin tones are now specific colors, struggle to understand humanity while it's quite clear they shouldn't be in this world. The few humans clued in to Earth's invasion don't flutter, but are drawn to their fiery fate with hearts wide open as they fight to survive.



355 pages, with a 4-star rating from 21 reviews.



How to Declutter with Kids, by Higher Read. (Still free?)

Tips and strategies for keeping a child-filled house uncluttered! Hmm, where was this when my three daughters were small!

"With 2 young kids of my own, this book is a must." - Michael G. Rund

"Great tips and ideas that are easy to put into place." - Jessica Kuhn


We improve our life quality when we enhance our home space. 


For a long time, we thought the best way to enjoy our space more was to add to it. The latest knick-knack was put on the shelf or a room was re-painted to reflect modern trends. That's the mentality that brings us here: to a time when people are looking not to add to a room or house or apartment, but to take away from it in the attempt to make an enjoyable environment.

Once you have simplified your home, once you have decluttered, you will find a space that feels as though you breathe easier. In some ways this is logical; there is less to clean or trip over. But an uncluttered space also, somewhat mysteriously, impacts our mood. It gives us a feeling of serenity and peace.

We hope you find that serenity once you have made your house a sanctuary by removing unwanted clutter from your life. In the pages of this book you will find tips, systems, and methods to help you declutter your home, helping you find that sense of peace.



59 pages, with a 4.8-star rating from 6 reviews.

    1. That's exciting, Rachelle! I'm glad it's getting a good response. I downloaded it, too - I figure the IT program manager in me would appreciate some of the tech details in the book, plus it just sounds like a great story!
