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

The Spice of Life, by Jennifer L. Jennings. (Still free?)

This "heartwarming, humorous and inspiring novel about love, friendship, self-discovery, and letting go" is free today!

"I was mezmorized by the three main characters. I really identified with the loss and betrayal and the humorous ways they overcame them. Each character came out of their shell. The main character owns her own business and struggles to keep what little personal life she has out of the office. Through her assistant she finds confidence, beauty and love. She also has an opportunity to dramatically influence and impact another person whom she also met through her assistant. A beautiful story that reminds us there is more than first impressions to human beings and who we can become when we open our minds." -- Tammy Fernandez, Amazon reviewer

From the author of the bestselling Sarah Woods Mystery Series
Success can be a tricky proposition, intoxicating one moment and toxic the next. Vanessa Roth, CEO of her own advertising firm, is about to get the shock of her life; her husband of eight years has left her for another woman. As a result, Anna, her niece and only friend provides her with a healthy distraction. However, six weeks of Burlesque lessons is the last thing Vanessa saw coming as a gift for her fortieth birthday. Ultimately, she accepts the challenge against her better judgment and gets a lot more than she ever bargained for.

"Wow! Reads like a action film in reeling off in your head!" -By Joanna Daneman --Sub-Human Review

"A Better Read Than Many of the Big Names in the Genre." -By Michael J. Crow --Sub-Human Review

"Post-Human, a noteworthy sci-fi novel" --Post-Human Review

"A thought-provoking, energetic sci-fi book, with a robust dose of high-octane exploits." -A.F. Stewart, author of Chronicles of the Undead --Trans-Human Review

The series started in 2009 with Post-human, followed by it's sequel, 2011's Trans-Human, and then leading to the prequel, published in the summer of 2012, Sub-Human. The trilogy can be read in the order of publication or in the chronological order of the entire epic story. The ebook is ordered according to the narrative, but reading it in the order of publication is its own, rewarding experience. It's all up to your preference.

Readers have taken to calling this the "Human Series," and why not? It's the story of humanity's future, both the possible bliss, the possible torment, and all of the in between. It might expand your view of what "human" really means, it might make you consider the pleasures and pains of immortality, and reflect on the extraordinary benefits and profound danger of strong A.I. All of this delivered in an epic series, paced faster than most novels, with twists and turns around almost every page, and a set of characters with whom you'll fall in love.

The Summer Called Angel: A story of hope on the journey through prematurity, by Sola Olu. (Still free?)

A highly-rated account of the author's personal experience with the birth of her premature baby girl. Highly-praised for its honesty and engaging writing, you can get this free today.

"Captivating and touching. This is an odyssey, a story of love, hope and strong determination. It is a very moving story and will keep you riveted till the end.The medical terms were properly explained which made them easy to understand. The story is so detailed and graphic that I could actually see myself in the hospital room with the author and the baby." -- Amazon reviewer

“My journey to motherhood began with a siren flashing, horn-blaring ride to the emergency room of a hospital. Within a day, everything I had imagined for the birth of my child changed.”

In June of 2004, graduate student Sola Olu was expecting. She was primed to receive a hard-won graduate degree from DePaul University. And, she was entering the third trimester of pregnancy with her first child. Amid the shimmering expectancy, one unexpected event turned her summer into a daze of apprehension and emotional agony.

When Sola went for an essentially routine visit to her doctor twenty-eight weeks into her pregnancy, she felt, at worst, a little tired. Instead, she was soon to deliver her daughter Angel at a perilously premature time. From the birth, Sola and her husband Chris were thrust into an unimaginable odyssey spanning seven months, several surgeries, and a painful imposed separation with their physically compromised newborn fighting daily to gain critical strength.

Punctuated by the actual medical reports during Angel’s protracted development, The Summer Called Angel provides intimate, hands-on details of the complexity of preeclampsia and prematurity as well as the emotional toll taken on parents who must witness their tiny baby struggle for life. With equal parts remorse and resolve, Sola and Chris struggle along, with the sole, all-consuming focus on their daughter’s survival. Throughout, Sola’s ever-growing knowledge of every new medical challenge underscores a love that knows no bounds of knowledge or time.

The Summer Called Angel also touches on Sola’s second premature birth and the emotional toll that ensues. Through everything the family is able to triumph and share their experiences to bring hope to others.

With candor and incandescence, The Summer Called Angel serves as a powerful tribute to maternal love in the face of unexpected challenges. It is certain to offer strength to readers attempting to process prematurity in their lives—and salve to those who have undergone a similar experience. All in all, rare and profound celebration of devotion is certain to resonate with parents everywhere.
