Free and bargain Kindle books! (Wednesday Mar 20)

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

Here are two Kindle books available for free today!

Trapped-Legend (Legend series), by Claudy Conn. (Still free?)

This steamy paranormal romance from prolific author Claudy Conn is praised by its readers as "enthralling." Highly-rated, and free today!

"The Legend series is beyond awesome. This series is a Must read. There is a dash of everything in this book, mystery, love, sex, magic, monsters, you name it. I enjoyed this story and love this author." -- Amazon reviewer

Trapped-Legend is the 3rd book in the Legend series, although each of the first three books stand on their own.

Magical powers, a castle, and a charming prince sound like the ingredients for a fairy-tale life, but for BJ Mulroy, reality turns out to be a whole lot more complicated.

BJ is a Fios, which means she can see both the Seelie and the Unseelie Fae even when they invoke the Feth Fiada that makes them invisible to most humans. She hadn’t asked for the magical power, and often she wishes she couldn’t see the evil drones who are appearing more and more often in our human world. But see them she does, and she can’t ignore the danger they pose—nor her responsibility as a Fios to combat the Dark Fae.

The castle is Castlesand, the ancestral home of her new husband, Brian, a warm and caring Druid high priest with only a few months to live. Though they care for each other, the marriage is a strategic alliance rather than a love match. Brian needs BJ’s help in making sure Castlesand doesn’t fall into the clutches of a dangerous relative who wants the estate no matter what he has to do and who he has to hurt—including Brian and BJ—to get it.

The charming prince is Danté, a Fae royal who is too attractive for any woman’s sanity. But while she’s as hot-blooded as the next woman. BJ does not want to be the plaything of an immortal prince, no matter how yummy he is. Besides, there’s the matter of the seventeenth-century hunk in the painting.

388 pages, with a 4.9-star rating from 18 reviews.



Conundrum (an Iris Reid mystery), by Susan Cory. (Still free?)

Like intelligent, fun mysteries? Architect - and amateur sleuth - Iris Reid delves into a murder at her Harvard reunion. Free today.

"Cambridge is evoked in all its quirky glory, with coffee houses, the "T", neighbors who drop by, and periodic street cleaning announcements from roving trucks. Ms. Cory does a great job creating this world and weaving an amusing, twisty plot that had me suspecting each one of the ego-centric classmates from her architecture class, back in town for their twentieth reunion. A great read!" -- Amazon reviewer

When a Harvard Architecture School superstar plunges off the balcony at a graduation party, the police see an accident, not foul play. But fellow-student Iris Reid knows that any jealous member of the ruling clique would have relished pushing him off. Twenty years later, a reunion is luring the same cast of characters back to Cambridge. The opening night dinner is being held in a Modernist house that Iris has designed. She hopes to untangle the events that led to her friend's death. But the murderer has other plans. When a long-ago boyfriend turns up dead the night of the dinner, all the incriminating evidence points to Iris. What began as an  attempt to avenge her old friend turns into a desperate race to avoid being framed by the clever killer—a killer capable of twisting the truth into a bloody conundrum.

260 pages, with a 4.6-star rating from 24 reviews.



Don't Kill Dinner (The Rules Trilogy), by Jennifer Martinez. (Still $0.99?)

Who knew that vampire rules of etiquette include the admonishment "Don't Kill Dinner"..? A fun, short read at 99 cents today!

"Yes, please! Don't Kill Dinner is book 1 in a 3 book series, 'The Rules Trilogy'. It's a fast paced read, but doesn't feel too rushed. I enjoyed the fact that the book is fast paced, there isn't too much lolly gagging around with unimportant details to fill page space like we sometimes see. The story line is intriguing and unpredictable. The two main characters Kenna and Arthur are SMEXY (Smart & Sexy) Vampires." -- Amazon reviewer

There are three rules when it comes to being a vampire in New Orleans.
1) Don’t kill dinner.
2) Don’t feed from people you know.
3) Don’t tell anyone. 


Not too hard, right? Wrong. Kenna is a new vampire filled with a passion that has turned into an uncontrollable lust for blood.

Will Arthur be able to stop her feeding spree before the coven comes after her or is Kenna beyond saving?

Arthur has been watching Kenna for years, wanting her to try her own hand in life before he gave her the ultimate proposal. Now that she has accepted, will his love be enough to save her?

102 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 14 reviews.



The Baby Trap, by Sibel Hodge. (Still $0.99?)

A story of hope and humor, from romantic comedy whiz Sibel Hodge. An enjoyable full-length read for 99 cents!

"What a fun read! I love books where I am nothing like the main character yet I totally get her. I think that is major kudos to the writer. The ending was super interesting, and I definitely recommend this book!" -- Chick Lit Plus

"I loved the snappy writing style of THE BABY TRAP. The story frequently had me laughing out loud. Anyone who has dealt with fertility issues will tell you it's about disappointment and loss, the death of a dream. But there is plenty of living left to be done and that's what Sibel Hodge does best in THE BABY TRAP" -- Chick Lit Central 

 Based on her own experiences with infertility and two attempts at IVF, Sibel Hodge's latest novel The Baby Trap will have you laughing and crying at the ups and downs of modern baby-making...

When Gina turns thirty-three her body clock unexpectedly begins clanging in her ear with annoying persistence. The only problem is, having a baby isn't as easy as she thought. Whether she's feng shui-ing the house to death with fertility symbols, throwing out her husband's tight boxers in favour of baggies, swapping wine and chocolate for green tea and yams, popping fertility drugs like M&M's, or having sex so precision-timed it makes international warfare maneuvers look unorganized, her life is turned upside down. And when nothing seems to be working, her quest for the B-word turns into an obsession.

Can Gina stay sane, get pregnant, and keep her marriage together? Or will her baby trail become a baby trap?

258 pages, with a 4.5-star rating from 30 reviews.



Thoughts are Things, by Prentice Mulford. (Still $0.99?)

It's hard to believe that this groundbreaking book was written in 1889. In beautifully-rendered prose it lays out a case for how "you become what you think." A worthy addition, at 99 cents, to you deep-thinking Kindle owners.

"While the book talks about many aspects of the power of thought that will be familiar to today's readers, he also covers some topics you don't hear discussed as much today. One of my favorite chapters is the one on cultivating courage. He notes that courage and presence of mind mean the same thing; and cowardice and lack of mental control mean about the same thing. He notes that courage comes from discipline regarding so-called little or trivial things. It means focusing on whatever you're doing at the moment, rather than allowing your thoughts to scatter in many directions. This focus allows you to have the presence of mind to do what needs to be done, rather than to panic." -- Amazon reviewer

Thoughts are Things by Prentice Mulford was instrumental in the founding of the popular philosophy, New Thought, along with other notable writers including Ralph Waldo Emerson. Mulford's book, Thoughts are Things served as a guide to this new belief system and is still very popular today. "You are what you think."

128 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 52 reviews.



Feels Like the First Time: A True Love Story, by Shawn Inmon. (Still $2.99?)

This true love story is one of the most popular books from authors in our Kindle forum. Over 150 five-star reviews! Save $2 on this book today.

"Wonderful love story! I'm not usually much of a romance reader, but I absolutely loved this one. The story is touching, engaging, and well written. The characters draw you in - you really care about and root for them, and I couldn't wait to see how things turned out. The best part, though, is the fact that it's true. It gives you hope for love and life. If their fairy tale came true who knows what can happen.... I highly recommend this book if you enjoy romances, reliving a teen-hood set in the 70's, or just want a wonderful, uplifting story. I look forward to seeing where this author goes in the future!" -- Amazon reviewer

  • Normally Priced at $4.99 on-sale for $2.99 through March 21st
The Notebook meets The Wonder Years.

1975: Shawn meets Dawn, his one true love, when she moves into the vacant house next door. Many people spend their life searching in vain for happiness, but he was lucky; finding it at the tender age of fifteen.

1979: Shawn and Dawn are forbidden to see each other. Feeling he is harming her by being in her life, Shawn walks away from the love of his life, apparently forever.

2006: after decades of sadness and mourning the girl that got away, Shawn has a chance meeting with Dawn that might change his life forever... again. Can the sweet bond of first love not only survive, but flourish?

Feels Like the First Time helps you remember what it was like to come of age and fall in love in small town America in the 1970's. No matter how much the world changes, some things, like timeless music, high school dances, making out in the backseat of a Chevy Vega, and of course true love, will always remain the same.

223 pages, with a 4.7-star rating from 214 reviews.



A Witch Central Wedding, by Debora Geary. (Still $0.99?)

Our feature yesterday of Debora Geary's new 'Modern Witch' book got a lot of attention from readers. To add to your Modern Witch collection, here's a short novella from Debora for 99 cents.

"We begged and pleaded and Debora Geary delivered a truly enjoyable gift. This book is meant specifically for people already familiar with Witch Central. It is always the beautiful sense of family and community that draws me into Geary's work. Her characters feel so real, that you almost expect to bump into them, or to discover that, perhaps, you might actually be a witch, too. I thoroughly enjoyed this tasty tidbit about the characters many of us truly love." -- Amazon reviewer

An important note from Debora: If you haven't read my A Modern Witch series, please do that before you read A Witch Central Wedding - it won't make any sense otherwise. This is a gift to my existing readers - a story they insisted needed its time in the sun.

It's a Witch Central wedding - and you're invited :).

This is a short read, about the length of two chapters in my series books. Not a short story, really - more like a snapshot. The chance to share in an important moment in the lives of your favorite witches.

This should be read between A Reckless Witch and A Nomadic Witch. Enjoy the wedding!

32 pages, with a 4.6-star rating from 217 reviews.



School Is A Nightmare #1 First Week, Worst Week, by Raymond Bean. (Still $3.99?)

You asked for more children's books, and here's a very highly-rated book from Raymond Bean. Comprised of short chapters, and about 100 pages in length, it's perfect for kids who are just starting to read chapter books. A worthy download at $3.99.

"This was a great story for boys or girls. My nine year old daughter and I read it together. It is a quick, easy read, we loved the characters. The two older sisters made us laugh. Any child will relate and chuckle. We have already pre-ordered the next one. Keep the stories coming." -- Amazon reviewer

Do you have trouble selecting a book and then sticking with it? Do you start a book, read a few pages, and then put it back?

The School Is A Nightmare Series might be right for you. They're fast paced (we promise) and have quick chapters (you're welcome).


Justin's last few days of summer are quickly vanishing. His mom is in full blown back to school mode, and he can't do anything to stop it. Over the final forty eight hours of summer he's been dragged shopping for shoes, clothes, and worst all, school supplies.
 

 Oh, and he has the meanest teacher in the whole school, Mrs. Cliff. She's been around so long she taught his dad when he was a kid. The thought of spending a whole school year in her class makes him want to hop the first bus to Canada. Unfortunately, he can't afford a bus ticket to Canada, so he'll just have to suck it up.

101 pages, with a 4.3-star rating from 60 reviews.
