"I love a good story and Cidney Swanson always gives me one! I instantly cared about these characters and couldn't wait to learn more about life on Mars. I was very impressed by the depth in which we learn about Marsian culture, and equally horrified by the new Earth practice of body-swapping. This book has everything I love in a story - great characters, adventure, a loathsome antagonist, affection, affliction.....ahhhhh! It was great!" -- Sarah, Amazon reviewer

"This is an excellent book for anyone who loves suspense or the study of witchcraft. Although this book has a scary undercurrent, it's also lighthearted and even funny at times. It really shows the power of recovery and friendships as well as love. The author does a beautiful job of switching point of views of characters through out the book without making it confusing or boring. I could hardly believe how much I loved every character even the evil ones! " -- Jennifer Dean, Amazon reviewer

She picked the worst guy to have an affair with! Evil stalks in Hawaii.

Michelle was brutally attacked in her locked hotel room in Las Vegas. The police didn't believe her and thought she must have lured a man up to her hotel room for a little sexual adventure, which went dangerously out of control.

Michelle sustained visible scars from the terrifying and almost lethal attack, but pure fear motivated the move from her home in California to Hawaii. She's scared her attacker will come back. She's sure the next time he'll kill her. Now she has a successful career and she figures abstinence is an acceptable, if lonely, way to live.

Michelle decides that an affair with a wickedly handsome man who moves into her building might cure her of the humiliating, embarrassing, and uncontrollable anxiety attacks which plague her whenever she finds herself alone with a man.

How could she know that she made the worst possible choice?

Omar Satinov, the man Michelle has chosen, is a secret, whispered legend across several continents. His lure is a mystical religion based upon Witchcraft; his hook, the addictive herbal products he sells his followers. But does he really have supernatural powers, as many of his disciples believe?
...I would recommend this book very highly! It was an extremely entertaining read that kept me hooked right up to the end.

... Being from Honolulu myself, I really enjoyed the references to some of my old haunts in Necromancer. However, I never knew so much intrigue was going on!

... I am left wanting to read more of the authors work. It was one of the best books that I have read lately, and I read a lot.

... Enjoyed every moment reading this book. Kept me up until 5 am for 3 nights running. All the characters are well developed, the story moves so fast and smoothly there was no place to stop, nor did I want to. Looking forward to reading her other books

Need a historical romance to get you through the holidays? Here's your chance and all for free!

"This was simply a wonderful book to read and ponder. Ms. Minger has created characters I could admire, sympathize with, and connect aas simply human. I greatly enjoyed the pace of the book - the horse riding scenes, the bows and arrows, the romance and not-so-subtle sexual innuendos. She's a gifted writer who brings historical romance to life." -- Outlook, Amazon reviewer

Readers from coast to coast have fallen in love with her strong, forceful heroes and fiery heroines. Now award-winner Miriam Minger sweeps you into a world of epic adventure and bold passion...

Ronan was a legend among men...and the last thing he needed was a troublesome woman. Yet this fierce Irish warrior took a deathbed oath to protect a chieftain's rebellious daughter.

Triona was a hellion of a woman...who would let no man rule her. Raised in the ways of a warrior, she defied Ronan's every command. So he planned to marry her off, to be rid of the wild lass forever. But in the heat of battle--enflamed by her passionate spirit--Ronan decided he wanted this beautiful, impossible woman for himself!

Transformative Travel in Nepal: Fulfilling a Dream in the Himalayas, by Kate Benzin. (Still free?)

This nonfiction travel novel follows two young women on their trip to Nepal! Get it for free today!

"I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book about Kate's journey with her friend Kay to the Himalayas. First I loved reading Kate's history. She's an independent person who has had many adventures in life and seems fearless. This book describes how she realized her dream of trekking in the Himalayas. It's also a book about personal growth, uncertainty, courage and victory. It's also about FUN! Kate's book is very well-written. Her narrative is engaging and I felt like I was right there on the Langtang Trek with Kate and Kay. There are some beautiful photographs in the book. The book is also beautifully formatted." -- Sandy Bose, Amazon reviewer

Fullfilling a dream! Kathmandu. Nepal. The Himalayas. An exotic area of the world that many people dream about visiting. Kate made that dream come true.

A casual phone call to a friend sparked the fulfillment of Kate's lifelong dream of traveling to Nepal in order to trek in the Himalayas. She jokingly mentioned to her friend Kay who was planning to start a new exercise routine that they could get fit on a trip to the Himalayas.

Within just a few weeks, Kate and Kay found themselves on a plane on the way to the adventure of a lifetime:

- seeing the gorgeous snow-capped Himalayas in person so close that it seemed that Kate could just reach out her hand to touch them.

- trekking for days into areas that only the most adventurous travelers ever reach.

What Kate learned about herself during the challenging and sometimes excrutiating, but always stimulating, adventure of trekking at high altitude over rough terrain truly transformed her in ways that often did not become apparent until many years later.

Follow along with Kate as she learns more about how to expand her limits so that she can truly fulfill her dream. And maybe you will find yourself motivated to fulfill your dream as well.

At the end, read a sample of Kate's book How To Find The Heart Of Bali, an introductory guide to social and cultural Bali.

The Highlander's Hope - A Contemporary Highland Romance, by Cali MacKay. (Still free?)

This highly rated work of romantic suspense is free today!

"When sexy academic Catriona Ross goes up against irascible Scottish playboy Iain MacCraigh in her hunt for a legendary necklace, it can only end in a Happily Ever After, but the fun is watching how MacKay weaves the heat and the humor and the mystery plot together. Cat and Iain strike plenty of sparks--one way and another--and set against the background of the Highlands, and a tale of true love in the time of Bonnie Prince Charlie, the story of how Cat and Iain find the Hope and fall in love, is a wonderful ride." -- HB, Amazon reviewer

When Dr. Catriona Ross discovers clues to a long lost highland treasure, her only hope of finding the jewels is to obtain the help of Scotland's most eligible bachelor and playboy, Iain MacCraigh.

Iain can't believe his luck when he finds out the jewels are hidden away somewhere on his land-- and it doesn't hurt that the historian looking for them has curves to go with her smarts. With his brother betting the family fortune, this is the life line he desperately needs.

The odds are against them, and with word getting out about the jewels, they're not the only ones on the hunt. Time's running out, but can they learn to trust each other, or will they lose the jewels and true love in the process?
