Free and bargain Kindle Books! (Monday Dec 10)

Here is today's selection of free and bargain Kindle books!

Soul Protector (Soul Protector Series #1), by Amanda Leigh Cowley. (Still free?)

This paranormal romance is in the Top 20 Free on Amazon!

"This is chick lit meets paranormal - but it also runs a bit deeper than that and I particularly enjoyed the wicked twist towards the end. Amanda Cowley has written a wonderfully absorbing story, with great characters, a gorgeous leading man and that magical page-turning quality." -- Shalini Boland, Amazon reviewer

Gracie believed she was a regular girl living a regular life.
She didn't know she possessed the power to infiltrate people’s minds.
 

She didn't know the power would endanger her life.
 

She didn’t know she would fall in love with her abductor.
 

And she had absolutely no idea what a Soul Protector was… until now.

“What a cracking book! Absolutely loved it! An exciting, interesting, fabulous, paranormal romance.” – Kim the Bookworm

“The pacing of the story is swift and engaging, leading us through Gracie's personal tumults as she falls farther into the SP world where she belongs.” – Stephanie Judice, author of Rising

“It has been a long time since I got so into a book that I had forgotten how it feels- I was going to bed an hour earlier to read it!” – S J Daley, London

280 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 24 reviews.



Sweetwater American, by Eileen Cruz Coleman. (Still free?)

"Desperation is a terrible thing. It will cause parents to look the other way as their children endure unspeakable cruelty." Described as "poignant," "moving," and "haunting," this work from Eileen Cruz Coleman is a free download today!

"A beautifully written story about immigrants and their families that will touch all your emotions. The story centers on Sandy, a would be filmmaker and her life in Washington, DC and her life in El Salvador after the death of her parents. It also covers her family and friends and their stories. Complex but very readable and I honestly could not put this book down. It will leave you thinking... " -- Denise Cortelyou, Amazon reviewer

Set in Washington, D.C. and El Salvador, SWEETWATER AMERICAN is the story of an orphan and would-be filmmaker who is sent to live in a cursed town in El Salvador with her godmother, a woman whom she has never met and who may hold the secret to breaking the town's curse.

Through Sandy Rodriguez and Elena Martinez, the two main characters, we are led into a different, haunting and magical world, where people test their faith every day and hold true to what they believe: that hardship and darkness can be overcome if one finds a reason to live.

While living in El Salvador, after a film crew comes to her town to film a movie, Sandy realizes she wants to be a documentary filmmaker. When she returns to the States, she attends George Washington University where she meets Elena, a sixty-something-year-old woman who serves peas and mashed potatoes in one of the school's cafeterias.

Sandy, intrigued by Elena, decides to ask her if she would be willing to share her life story with her. Elena, whose past still haunts her, agrees to tell Sandy her story. During the interview, Sandy is forced to come to terms with her own past and she begins to understand what the term, Sweetwater American, really means.

Here's a bargain Kindle book, available for 99 cents today!

Text Appeal, by Lexi Ryan. (Still $0.99?)

Today's bargain book - at $0.99 - is a steamy romance involving the heiress of a Las Vegas hotel and a desperate poker player.

"Text Appeal is smart, sexy, filled with great writing and memorable dialogue, and features characters you won't easily forget." -- Elizabeth Naughton, Amazon reviewer

****LIMITED TIME SALE PRICE OF 99 CENTS!!!****

Charlie 'The Devil' Singleton is the face of professional poker. Notorious for playing cards and women, Charlie's ready to change his ways, and the surprisingly sexy texts he's getting from Riley are making him want to bet everything...on her.

Riley Carter is nothing like the hotel heiresses who make the news. A girl who's determined to run her father's hotel empire can't share many traits with women who fill the gossip rags. But 'The Devil' has a way of tempting even the best behaved girls.

When Riley discovers the naughty messages on her cell have been coming from Charlie, not "Mr. Right," she falls into a hot affair with the last man she expected. But consorting with the notorious bad boy puts her hard-won reputation on the line. Is Charlie worth more to her than a little TEXT APPEAL?

245 pages, with a 4.7-star rating from 7 reviews.



The Supreme Warrior, by John Viril. (Still free?)

This epic fantasy is free today!

"The Supreme Warrior is a story of struggle and multiple betrayals. The intrigue in this book goes way beyond trying to put your guy on the throne. Instead, trading houses, banks, religious orders, and even peasants have their own goals and agendas. I highly recommend this fast-paced tale. " -- Nell Pierce, Amazon reviewer

Calidon Dannik's life is a disaster. First, his Uncle—and sworn master—refuses to allow him to fight in his father's Tournament. Second, his childhood sweetheart Alynde begins to flirt with Henrick, Cal's older brother. Finally, Calidon's father orders Henrick to court Alynde, with the apparent aim of establishing an alliance with Alynde's father, Baron Dorrin of Helvig.

When Calidon resorts to intrigue to win the woman he loves, he finds himself enmeshed in plots that extend far beyond the confines of his homeland. His adventure takes him from his father's Barony to the vast dwarf warrens of Nidafall and finally to the fabulous City of Selinger—whose Prince has struggled for decades to bring the warring Barons under his sway. Cal must accept the destructive nature of knighthood before he can help Prince Keldrin thwart the corrupt powers that yearn to dominate Horgeond.

If you like epic fantasy that embroils you in vicious intrigue, takes you to far lands inhabited by strange creatures, and explores big themes like the relationship between war, religion, economics and ecology, then The Supreme Warrior is for you.

The Foolish Warrior attacks enemy Soldiers. The Supreme Warrior battles the Mind.


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



NO EXIT (The Apple Grove Gang), by Hamilton C. Burger. (Still free?)

Got a tweener at home? Or just want a charming, short read? This YA adventure tale is free today!

"Hamilton C. Burger's obvious delight in his craft shines through on every page. The kids in this book have real voices and real lives. No dungeons, dragons or wizards here, rather a book that will make both parents and young readers happy. Thank goodness there will be more in the Apple Gang series!" -- Rebecca Forster, Amazon reviewer

Benny Churchill and Bug Beetle are off and running on the last day of school. They are ready for a great summer of fun with the Apple Grove Gang. Instead, they learn a lesson in politics. When the Apple Grove Community Center is closed, the Gang finds out just how hard it is to fight city hall. Finally, when their backs are against the wall, and they find out that there is no exit, the real fun and excitement begin.

126 pages, with a 4.1-star rating from 13 reviews.



Incoming Alert, by Arlene Webb. (Still free?)

Here's a Sci-Fi adventure that's working its way up the charts. Free today!

"This is such a fun book to read. The lead character, Caron, leaps off the page with his exhuberance and innocence. Ms Webb has created a cast of unforgettable characters and a unique type of creature - a Ron. Although there are some serious themes in this book, it really is a great read for every age from Young to Older adults! The story starts when a little Ron celebrates his century birthday and he's allowed to phase to earth. Caron forgets all he's been told and ends up in a hell of a mess, particularly since he's supposed to be invisible but turns out he can be seen. It's a rollercoaster of a story that wrings every emotion from the reader but the abiding feeling I've been left with is one of joy. It was FUN!" -- Bluevitriol, Amazon reviewer

How Not to Celebrate your Century Birthday:
Tell overprotective parents you'll be fine.
Phase to a parallel dimension to amuse yourself with humans and choose a name.
Arrive flat on your face.
Learn you're unique among immortals, and not in a good way.

Hello, Earth. Boy's victory dance on top of a cafeteria table doesn't last long. She's looking at me? Seriously? Jubilation vanishes when he realizes the young woman gawking at his trembling two-inch form--which should be invisible--is as frightened as him.


Major screw up that he is, he ignores everything he's been told about survival and shifts larger without first refilling his phase-depleted veins.
 

Then comes the icing on what's sure to be his last birthday cake. After denying he's crawled out of the meatloaf, he bonds with the mortal. Not only is he drawn to a first century name that guarantees anger and ridicule, it's doubtful he'll survive this birthday, let alone celebrate another.

Incoming Alert is a science-fiction adventure novel for general audience, but contains violence and adult themes.


No vampires, weres, zombies, fey, or previously known supernaturals were used or otherwise harmed in the making of this novel.

302 pages, with a 5-star rating from 3 reviews.



Rainy Day Poems, by James McDonald. (Still free?)

I appreciate clever rhymes, and this children's book is something I'd enjoy reading to my younger nephews and nieces. Beautifully illustrated with color renderings, I'd particularly recommend it for the Kindle Fire or for the Kindle app on your iPad or other tablet.

"With charm and humor, Mr. McDonald has made everyday childhood into an adventure and done it from a child's perspective that will engage the young. The subject and content of the poems reflect an enlightened understanding and compassion for children. This along with the clever words and delightful illustrations make a wonderful book for everyone to enjoy including the not so young!" -- Diane Stove, Amazon reviewer

Whether it is Story Time, Bed Time, or any other time, this book is a treat to enjoy. From the Graphic illustrations to the catchy rhymes and tones, you will find it hard to put down and even harder to forget." -- Dennis Cruise, Amazon reviewer

Hold on to your hats,
And get ready to go.
Because the rain's just begun,
And it’s time for the show.

The adventures of Sami and Thomas Lamb.

63 pages of fantastically illustrated poems for kids that are sure to capture the reader's attention. Sami and Thomas Lamb will have you laughing in no time with their crazy adventure. Can you find the stuffie on every page?
