"There's a kick-butt heroine, a bit of a love triangle, and super-hot hottie. I finished this in a few days, and then started on the sequel, Caged, right away. I don't know who the good guys are and who the bad guys are at this point, but I can't wait to find out how it ends!" -- Deedee Griffin, Amazon reviewer
"In Talented, you have some traditional elements of a YA book...aka the Love Triangle. However, I think that it was well executed and I attached myself to Talia and felt her feelings and her angst and confusion. The whole environment created by Davis is brilliant. Her characters are so complex. And let me tell you what...that. epilogue. was. KILLER! I HAVE to get my hands on Caged like yesterday. It was such an intense cliffhanger!" -- S. Ellis, Amazon reviewer

An Act of Deceit (A Sarah Woods Mystery), by Jennifer L. Jennings. (Still free?)
Here's a hard-boiled mystery in the Sarah Woods series - free today!
"Sarah Woods is fast becoming one of my favorite female sleuths. She's funny, down to earth, and isn't afraid to try something new. She might be afraid of going into a potentially dangerous situation, but she does it anyway to get the job done. And it's a good thing that Carter watches over her before she becomes too wreckless. This fast-paced mystery kept my interest from the very beginning and I'm looking forward to the next installment in this series.
Highly recommended." -- S. Warfield, Amazon reviewer

Iron Branch: A Civil War Tale of a Woman In-Between, by Kelby Ouchley. (Still free?)
This historical love story follows a part-Choctaw narrator, colorfully set in the flora and fauna of Louisiana. See another side of the Civil War in this historical romance, free today!
"This novel features a strong protagonist who is truly a woman in-between. Abita is half Native American and half "white." But her Choctaw heritage proves its value when she treks alone, with only a blind mule, from North-central Louisiana to Vicksburg, MS, to find her "white" lover Minor, who's been wounded in the Union siege of that city, even though he has married another woman at the urging of his father. The people she meets along the way, coming and going, represent the best and worst of those who lived and worked in Louisiana during the Civil War period. Abita herself demonstrates a stoic yet dedicated, persevering yet caring personality; and her love for Minor never wavers. The author, whose great-great-great grandfather fought at Vicksburg, is a retired naturalist who provides a wealth of information on the flora and fauna abundant in Louisiana at the time. Highly recommended! " -- Sunny M., Amazon reviewer

New World: a Frontier Fantasy Novel, by Steven W. White. (Still free?)
Enjoy this fun fantasy, in a frontier full of fascinating creatures and evil villains. Free today!
"Outrageous fun! I was thoroughly enthralled. This book is so cleverly plotted and the new world painted so elegantly that I was captivated. The characters are well-painted and very three dimensional. The world itself is populated with legendary beasts from unicorns to thunderbirds to wendigos. Being an historian by education, I loved the setting. It could have been the American West in the early 1800's, but the land and the animals were incredibly different. What if Lewis and Clark stumbled into this version of the West?
Even if you're not normally a fantasy reader, you must read this book." -- Penn Wallace, Amazon reviewer
236 pages, with a 4.9-star rating from 9 reviews.
The Girl on the Mountain, by Carol Ervin. (Still free?)
A young woman struggles to survive in a boisterous logging town after her husband disappears. This historical fiction novel, available for free download today, earns high praise for its rich characterization and compelling writing.
"I was so enthralled by The Girl On The Mountain: it is extremely well-written, heartfelt and moving, but more than that, it's real Literature with a capital L, full of double-entendre, subtle symbols and clever metaphors. No word is used at random; even a seemingly casual reference to books recently published can be tied to the overall meaning of the novel, and is not only there to give us an idea of the date when the events take place... Deceptively simple and simply delightful. A modern-day classic. " -- Max Zaoui, Amazon reviewer

The King Thing, by Neil Bastian. (Still free?)
One reviewer describes this book as "a fine mix of 'Roman Holiday' and 'Dog Day Afternoon.' While you're wrapping your brain around that, download this comic novel set in present-day London - free today!
"The King Thing is a rare thing. A comic novel with a plot that constantly surprises, grips and also makes you think about real life characters, about whom, we all too often have already made our assumptions about. And despite having a premise that is somewhat unlikely, it remains plausible every step of the way whilst making you laugh out loud. The writing is lean but the timing of the gags, both verbal and physical is perfect. Gripping, funny, refreshing - highly recommended." -- C. DeLaMare, Amazon reviewer

The Dream Jumper's Promise, by Kim Hornsby. (Still free?)
A little romance, with a dash of paranormal and mystery, awaits you in this free download!
"This is a little gem. The story is engaging, the relationship between Tina and Jamey builds nicely, the suspense keeps coming, and there are twists and turns that caught me completely off guard. And it all comes with this great paranormal edge. Just the right kind of book to distract from the daily grind or pack for the plane ride. Love the ending." -- Laurie, Amazon reviewer
4.9-star rating from 6 reviews.
Beware the River, by Kitty Margo. (Still free?)
A coming-of-age thriller, suitable for all ages. Download this free today!
"I purchased this on the recommendation of a friend and as always I pre read books before I allow my children to read them. Shockingly, I liked this book as much as the kids. This book was very child friendly, but scary as well. It is a coming of age tale that is suspenseful, spooky, ghostly,mysterious and would be very good for Halloween, sitting around a bonfire, camping out or just curled up reading a good book. The language and situations are definitely G rated so it is fine for any age, but I think it is best suited for ages 13 and above. I look forward to more work by this author. It is so nice to find serious stories for kids now a days that aren't filled with bad language and adult situations." -- JagGirl, Amazon reviewer
