Winter Fire, by Kathy Fischer-Brown. (Still 2.99?)

Set during the Revolutionary War, this historical romance finds Ethan and Zara falling in love, but wary of each other at the same time. She is Native - he is white; will their cultural differences be too much to overcome?

"This is a carefully made, old-fashioned romantic historical, the kind discerning fans of the genre of a certain age cut their teeth on. It's written with taste, feeling and an excellent grasp of the political, moral and social realities of frontier life in late 18th Century America. If that sounds too daunting, rest assured that it is also a deeply moving love story about two lost souls who--against all the odds--find each other in the midst of the hardships and horrors of the Revolutionary War." -- Amazon reviewer

Continuance, by Marta Tandori. (Still 2.99?)

When a little boy goes missing, it's assumed to be an abduction. In the search for him, history and family secrets are revealed. The line between past and present are blurred in this family drama. Get it for $2.99!

"The author did a great job at capturing how a little kid talks and thinks. As a result, that storyline was suspenseful and interesting. I was surprised to discover that the kidnapping is mostly a framework for the child's ancestors and their romantic relationships and business dealings." -- Amazon reviewer

When seven-year-old Ethan du Maurier, only son and heir of New York City real estate tycoon, Alexander du Maurier, disappears during school recess, the FBI quickly determines that his disappearance was an abduction. Within hours of a special news bulletin airing nationwide, the FBI’s hotline is inundated with anonymous tips relating to sightings of a little boy matching Ethan’s description outside a historic Savannah building, now a newly-renovated eatery. The FBI quickly assembles a task force and searches the premises but instead of finding little Ethan, they stumble upon the century-old remains of what appears to be a murdered man hidden in a pirate’s tunnel under the historic building.

With her restaurant on temporary lockdown pending the FBI’s forensic investigation, owner Annie Eastwood researches the history of the building she inherited, hoping it will shed some light on the identity of the murdered man, but what she uncovers are bits and pieces of a horrible scandal that nearly destroyed the du Maurier family over a century ago. With hopes for Ethan’s safe return dwindling by the hour, Annie finds an unlikely lead in an old classified ad from a Boston newspaper which connects the events of the past to the present-day abduction of Ethan du Maurier—and to the identity of his abductor. Determined to rescue little Ethan before time runs out, Annie quickly realizes that the boy’s abductor will stop at nothing—even murder—in order to exact his revenge.

Hoofing It (Robert Knight series), by Ian M Pindar. (Still 1.99?)

This recently released novel is the first for author Ian Pindar. Two friends, fresh out of high school, take the ultimate Euro-trip. Follow them as they dance, drink, flirt, cry, blow things up, and in the end - find themselves. This rite-of-passage novel is $1.99!

In 1996, just before university, Robert and his best friend Spud hedonistically set off around Europe in their neighbour’s stolen car, with the 28,000 pounds they have `acquired,’ forged documents, no insurance and class A’s under the bonnet.
On the way to the ferry in Hull, they save the life of a young suicidal woman, Naomi, who is about to jump off the Humber Bridge. All her immediate family have tragically died in a car crash one year previous. Robert is adamant he can help rehabilitate her; but Steven wants nothing of this `Captain Freedom’ talk.
Along the way they meet a beautiful smack-head – dance like the rest of the world is watching – reach a higher state of consciousness - have gratuitous sex – perpetrate sweet criminal acts – meet madness and genius – open the door to hell – have perfect moments – cry in the Vatican – have scary liaisons – get mortally challenged – blow things up and see hope boil away. Robert is not looking for love, moral enlightenment or a sense of being, but he gets them anyway… well… What more could you want from a book?
Hoofing It is the debut novel by Ian M Pindar, it is a rite of passage/coming of age story and the first in a series; the second being Hoofed (set around the millennium) will be out soon. As the main character Robert Knight travels through life, we will travel with him – hop on board!
