Free and bargain Kindle books! (Tuesday Feb 26)

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

Chameleon (The Ripple Trilogy-2), by Cidney Swanson. (Still free?)

The 2nd installment in the popular Rippler YA fantasy series. This book is praised for its fast pace, suspenseful plot, and engaging characters. Over forty five-star reviews, and free today!

"Smart paranormal YA. Swanson hit just the right balance between action and romance. I love the way she writes emotion! The books in the Ripple series have a more intelligent feel to them than many other YA novels. I think it's due to the historical element of the story, the dialogue, and the fact that while the main characters are in their teens, they are mature for their ages. They have to be, facing what they are facing." -- Amazon reviewer

When Sam learns of her nemesis Helmann's Nazi-like plan to re-establish a Thousand-Year Reign, she's determined to fight him. Along with Will and Mickie, Sam flees to France to meet Sir Walter--their best hope for stopping Helmann's brave new world. Unfortunately, Sam isn't any safer in France. Someone invisible is following her, and now Sam must figure out how to hide from an enemy she can't even see.

Shadow of Stone (The Pendragon Chronicles), by Ruth Nestvold. (Still free?)

Ruth Nestvold is one of our most popular authors, and this work of Arthurian historical fiction is a great find, free today. It's the second book in the Pendragon Chronicles series.

"This book is like a giant bag of kettle chips for the solid historical crunch and sturdy flavor of ancient Britain. If you liked the thoroughly researched battles and journeys of the characters in Yseult, the fun continues here in Shadow of Stone. Anyone interested in Celtic history, Arthur legends, or historical fantasy based on solidly researched places, locations, and people will enjoy how the author breathes life into people from this time." -- kblincoln, Amazon reviewer

For over ten years, there has been peace in Britain after Arthur and his warriors soundly defeated the Saxons at the battle of Caer Baddon. But sometimes peace is deceptive ...

After a series of hard winters and famine, an alliance of dissatisfied northern kings attack the rich cities of Southern Britain. But in the years of peace, Arthur's army has grown soft; jealousies and trivialities rip once strong alliances apart. Cador, who is mockingly referred to as "farmer king," must go to war again. The threat to their way of life throws him together with Yseult, the woman he has secretly loved since he was a youth.

But can their politically expedient marriage help bring peace to Britain again? Or will it only lead to further conflict? As betrayals both real and imagined shake the foundations of former British unity, Cador and Yseult must try to negotiate their own personal peace. Who will survive the upheavals to come? Will Britain rally once more behind a common leader to fight off the common threat?

536 pages, with a 4.7-star rating from 22 reviews.

Challenging Andie, by Sally Clements. (Still free?)

A "spicy" read from romance author Sally Clements... free today!

"Make no mistake here - this is a romance novel. As such, it was lust at first sight. However, the characters were believable. The story line was surprisingly well developed given the main (dare I say it?) thrust of the book. The ending was predictable. The atmosphere of both the English and Middle Eastern settings were nicely drawn. If you have a rainy week-end, the sniffles, or a long flight, reading this little book will be just the thing." -- Amazon reviewer

Jaded war correspondent Ryan Armstrong reports terrible events without letting them pierce the armor covering his heart. When his colleague Emily Harte is murdered, he feels responsible for her death, and travels to England to return Emily’s effects to her daughter.

During their time in seclusion, attraction blossoms into an affair. Their relationship was only supposed to be a fling. When the time comes for Ryan to return to Bekostan, can she risk loving a thrillseeker, or is that a challenge too far?
Ryan avoids love, knowing the pain losing it can bring. A life without Andie is sensible, but is it possible?

Project Moses (An Enzo Lee Mystery Thriller), by Robert B. Lowe. (Still $0.99?)

Over forty 5-star reviews for this mystery-thriller, from Pulitzer-prize winner Robert Lowe. Bargain-priced today at $2.99.

"Lowe's taut thriller is fronted by a likable protagonist who retains his sense of humor. The story's long-reaching conspiracy is elaborate but never overwhelming, so readers can appreciate the stockpiling of secrets, elusive characters and murders committed to preserve those secrets. A thriller with an ideal fusion of wile and wit." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Project Moses" is a fast-paced and hard to put down thriller. - Recommended" -- Midwest Book Review

Best Indie Books of 2012 Finalist - Kindle Book Review.

Project Moses is the best-selling bioterrorism thriller filled with romance, suspense and humor that kicked off the Enzo Lee Mystery Thriller Series. Enzo Lee, 37, a burned out reporter, has forsaken investigative reporting on the East Coast to churn out feature fluff in San Francisco. He likes his North Beach apartment, steps away from his Chinatown roots. Running, tai chi, great food, women who are attracted to his exotic looks. Life is good.

Then, Lee's comfortable life is shaken when he is ordered to cover the unexplained deaths of a local judge and prosecutor. Intrigued by the connection, and the judge's attractive niece, Sarah Armstrong, Lee begins to uncover a bioterrorism scandal whose perpetrators - including government officials and Silicon Valley titans - will kill to conceal.

When Lee and Sarah become targets, the question becomes whether the pair can evade their hunters and piece together the story before their time runs out. Project Moses is set in San Francisco, New York and Silicon Valley. By a Pulitzer Prize-winning author.

Project Moses is the first book in the Enzo Lee Mystery Thriller Series. The second is Divine Fury available now on Amazon and other booksellers.

Touched by Death, by Dale Mayer. (Still free?)

From acclaimed author Dale Mayer, you can get this romantic suspense novel for free today!

"Dale Mayer spins a complex tale that you won't be able to put down. As usual, her dialogue is brilliant, and Jade and her love interest, Dane, make a great couple. Add in the possibility of a serial killer on top of the number of bodies, and you have a captivating tale from a wonderful storyteller." -- Amber Keller, Fresh Fiction

Death had touched anthropologist Jade Hansen in Haiti once before, costing her an unborn child and perhaps her very sanity.

A year later, determined to face her own issues, she returns to Haiti with a mortuary team to recover the bodies of an American family from a mass grave.

Visiting his brother after the quake, independent contractor Dane Carter puts his life on hold to help the sleepy town of Jacmel rebuild. But he finds it hard to like his brother's pregnant wife or her family. He wants to go home, until he meets Jade - and realizes what's missing in his own life.

When the mortuary team begins work, it's as if malevolence has been released from the earth. Instead of laying her ghosts to rest, Jade finds herself confronting death and terror again.

And the man who unexpectedly awakens her heart - is right in the middle of it all.

320 pages, with a 4.7-star rating from 11 reviews.

It's a journey that forces Zoe to navigate her uniquely porous boundaries separating right from wrong and into a reckless relationship with a man who should have been off-limits. In the process, her own violent past looms. And while it causes her to question her own goodness, it also comes with a keen understanding of the killer's mind -- and an irresistible pull. Ultimately, Zoe's troubled past and present collide against a backdrop of sleep deprivation, hospital liaisons, and murder.
