"Loved being able to really get to know and love these characters. Real enough to walk right off the page. Made me care for them and want to read more." -- Amazon reviewer

One day, Callie Vanetta receives devastating news…

She needs a liver transplant. But her doctors warn that, in her case, the chances of finding a compatible donor aren't good.
Determined to spend whatever time she has left on her own terms, she keeps the diagnosis to herself and moves out to her late grandparents' farm. She's always wanted to live there. But the farm hasn't been worked in years and she begins to fear she can't manage it, that she'll have to return to town.

One night, a stranger comes knocking at her door…

He's an attractive and mysterious drifter by the name of Levi McCloud, and he offers to trade work for a few nights' shelter. Callie figures she doesn't have anything to lose. He needs a place to stay until he can fix his motorcycle; she needs an extra pair of hands. The arrangement seems ideal until what was supposed to be temporary starts to look more and more permanent. Then she realizes she does have something to lose—her heart. And, although he doesn't yet know it, Levi stands to lose even more.

The Art of Deception, Book Two, Stolen Hearts series, Romantic Suspense, by Kate Kelly. (Still 0.99?)

Sophie is set up to take the fall for art forgery and drug smuggling, but tough FBI agent Vince Gage is unconvinced of her guilt... and finds himself falling for her. 99 cents today!

"Sophie restores artwork, but needs to get rid of FBI agent, Gage, who has even her thinking that her brother is guilty of forgery and drug dealing. Another thing I really liked was that the characters weren't perfect. They made mistakes and did things that weren't always above board, but since I could really understand Sophie and especially Gage, I just had to keep reading their story. I won't reveal the ending, but I will say that there are enough twists and turns to keep a reader happy." -- Amazon reviewer

Cold, hard facts make a case, but there’s nothing cold or hard about FBI Agent Vince Gage's prime suspect, Sophie Pascotto. Despite incriminating evidence and that his job is at risk. Gage can’t convince himself Sophie is guilty. He struggles to balance the facts, but there’s one fact he can’t ignore--he’s falling in love with Sophie.

Someone has set up Sophie and her brother to take the fall for art forgery and drug smuggling. When Gage discovers Sophie has received death threats, he convinces her they need to work together. Sophie soon realizes beneath his tough cop exterior lurks a kind man. This Gage is much more dangerous because he engages her heart. With her family under suspicion for forgery, the last person she should become involved with is a by-the-book FBI agent.

The Good Lawyer: A Novel, by Thomas Benigno. (Still 2.99?)

A young, ambitious lawyer, defending a teacher's aide accused of child molestation, finds his client may be connected to a serial rapist - and is forced to draw on his family ties to the mob, and sacrifice everything he believes in, to bring about justice. Over 400 five-star reviews for this acclaimed legal thriller!

"Benigno's first effort is a crafty legal page-turner, just as good in the courtroom as it is outside...Benigno fortifies his lead character with problems that his law degree can't fix. Readers who like their courtroom thrillers packed with lawyer-speak and zigzagging plot developments should find much to savor." -- Kirkus reviews




A young, ambitious lawyer is eager to prove he is better than the father who abandoned him and worthy of the devoted mother who raised him beyond the siren call of the mobster dominated family he grew up in. Working as a Bronx Legal Aid Attorney he learns how to twist the system, how to become an unbeatable defense lawyer, and he his peacock proud of his perfect record-not a single conviction.

When an outraged rape victim commits suicide right before his eyes, searching for absolution, he grabs the headline case of a teacher's aide accused of molesting three students. Armed with a firm belief in his client's innocence, he knocks the pegs out from under the prosecution's case. When one of the children turns up dead, he discovers that his client may be strangely connected to the Spiderman. Digging deeper, horrifying revelations about his family's past collide with the true identity of the sadistic sociopath behind the Spiderman's rampage. In the process, this good lawyer comes face-to-face with his greatest conflict and deepest fear: to win, really win-save the city and even the woman he loves-must he sacrifice every principle he believes in and embrace his family's mafia past to become judge, jury, and executioner?

Teacher Sandy Jacobs comes to the defense of a student accused of witchcraft and blamed for the deaths of two children - and clashes with attractive fellow teacher Ben Rush as they intervene with the violence and harassment. A full-length romantic suspense!

"J.S. Winn has done it again. She's driven the ball out of the park with The Spirit Keepers!! Winn draws up on her own life’s experiences to draw a vivid picture of the natural beauty of New Mexico that envelopes a plot full of intrigue and mystery, romance and drama. The story is rich with details about the American Southwest and its unique culture. The story keeps the reader glued to her seat and holding her breath as she reads on to learn if her beloved heroine survives and finds true love. Mystery, drama, love and betrayal make for one heck of a good read. I loved it!" -- Amazon reviewer

Fated Dreams (Book One In The Affinity series), by Christina Smith. (Still 0.99?)

Sarah Samson finds the love of her life, but her longheld secrets propel her into a decades-old murder mystery... and the two must join forces to resolve it before murder strikes again. Bargain-priced at 99 cents!

"One thing that I absolutely love about Smith's writing is how personal it is. Everything that is written is so realistic that you cannot help but be drawn into it. Smith has a way with words that allow you to picture exactly what she is seeing while writing. Some of the scenery is breathtaking, and you can just imagine line dancing with the characters in a small town diner. There is such realism in everything. Even though this story is paranormal in essence, the characters and scenes are very real. Some of the scene breaks are a little jumpy, but then you feel like you're in a high school cafeteria where 12 things are going on all at once and you're trying to be in on all of them. This novel was able to grab me and didn't let go throughout the entire story. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It even evoked a few girlie giggles from me while I was reading!" -- Amazon reviewer

Do you believe in true love? Sarah Samson didn’t until she met hers. But for Sarah, meeting the guy of her dreams came with a price. On the outside Sarah looks like she has it all, friends, a loving family, and a hobby she's really good at. But if you look closer, Sarah's keeping secrets, from everyone in her life, even... Lucas. A boy she hardly knows, but still feels a connection with.

Life would be perfect, if it wasn't for the constant feeling that someone is following her. She feels a presence everywhere she goes, work, home, her dreams.

She suddenly finds herself wrapped up in a dangerous mystery that started eighty years ago involving two tragic deaths. After several attempts on her life, she and Lucas realize they must solve it before history repeats itself.
