Free and bargain Kindle books! (Monday Apr 22)

Here is today's selection of bargain Kindle books!

Here are two Kindle books available for free today!

The Donzerly Light, by Ryne Douglas Pearson. (Still free?)

Stock-picker Jay Grady becomes enormously successful after a chance encounter with a transient - but finds that the mysterious lucky streak he's on comes at a terrible cost. This thriller from the acclaimed novelist and screenwriter Ryne Douglas Pearson is free today!

"Pearson creates a spider web of a plot that draws not only his protagonist but also the reader in and refuses to let either go. Jay's life is forever changed when he drops some change into a bum's can: first, he's given the Midas touch and then something much more sinister. All of the characters seem real, from his childhood sweetheart to the man interrogating Jay, which helps to ground the more fantastic elements of the story. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in paranormal suspense. It was highly entertaining and had a great twist at the end." -- Amazon reviewer

"Knowing" (Nicolas Cage, Rose Byrne) screenwriter Ryne Douglas Pearson brings a terrifying tale of dark forces to life in The Donzerly Light.

Jay Grady wakes up in handcuffs. Sitting at a table in an isolated room. Across from him sits a man who wants Jay to recount his life. Every detail of it.

If not, he'll kill him.

So begins Jay's reluctant journey to a past he's tried to forget. From his days ruling Wall Street as an impossibly intuitive stock picker, to just a few hours earlier, when he pumped six bullets into a transient outside a dying Missouri town. A drifter he'd once thought was just an ordinary man.
But he was far from ordinary. And Jay came to realize he was not a man at all, but something darker. Something sinister.

An evil he was destined to face.

The Spirit Keepers, by J. S. Winn. (Still free?)

Teacher Sandy Jacobs seeks to defend one of her students who is accused of witchcraft and murder, and finds an unlikely ally in a fellow faculty member. This highly-rated romantic suspense is free today!

"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

Can you escape the wrath of the Spirits?

One of Sandy Jacobs’ ten year old students and his family are accused of witchcraft. Blamed for the mysterious deaths of two San Anselmo Pueblo children, they’re terrorized by “Boogeymen” Kachina, fierce-looking impersonators of the spirits. Sandy rushes to their aid, but her actions inflame the perpetrators and arouse the opposition of Native born faculty member, Ben Rush. Sandy and Ben clash over the issue while struggling against the attraction growing between them until the harassment culminates in violence. Together they risk their lives to uncover the truth and, in the process, learn lessons as valuable as any they have taught.

Midnight Reflections, by Pamela M. Richter. (Still 0.99?)

Reeling from a family tragedy, Julia suspects her boss is a murderer - and that there might be more to her charming lover Robin than meets the eye. Just 99 cents today for this novel from romantic suspense author Pamela M. Richter!

"The main characters had the right blend of strong and vulnerable and were plausible and relatable. I think the author created two of the more realistic main characters I've read in a while in this genre with regard to their thoughts, emotions, insecurities, and the relationship pace and development. I especially liked that the story continued for a chapter or two after the "we-got-the-bad-guy" part of the story concluded. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes their romances with an actual story, a little suspense and action, and less page-after-page of repetitive erotica type drooling, angst, and sex." -- Amazon reviewer

MIDNIGHT REFLECTIONS - What really happens at Midnight?

Julia's midnight reflections actually happened at four in the morning. Tragedy had struck her family. She was far from home, lonely, watching a handsome man sleeping in her bed at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Robin, the handsome sleeping man had put himself in terrible danger so she could solve a mystery. Now she was feeling guilty as well as heart broken.

Robin himself is obsessed by Julia, knowing something besides her attractiveness enchanted him; an illusive mixture of sweetness and intelligence that beckons. He's playing a role, hiding his true identity.

Julia is playing a dangerous role herself, working for a man she believes is a murderer. She also suspects that Robin is much more than the simple man he proclaims himself to be. Can she trust him?

Together they uncover inflammatory information and are forced on the run by a dangerous and angry politician.

Awake In The Mad World, by Damon Ferrell Marbut. (Still 0.99?)

Recent graduate Pete Rattigan enters the world of journalism, when a chance encounter leads him to examine life in all its beauty and cruelty. This literary work is highly-praised by its readers, and is available for 99 cents today.

"This was a genuinely moving book, from first page to last. Maybe I'm a sucker for this type of novel, since it explores a world that I've passed through quite recently. But the themes are for the most part universal, and Marbut's writing is strong enough to draw in any reader. This really is quite a brilliant novel, and one that I'd recommend to anyone who has ever wondered how their own hopes and dreams fit into the 'real world'." -- Indie Bookspot

Pete Rattigan is a frustrated young newspaper journalist caught up in uncertainty of the post-graduate “real world”. One night, one seemingly minor encounter sparks a philosophical journey which leads him to discover that in the most beautiful or even cruel moments of life, the power of friendship explains the power of the universe. And that perhaps there is no such thing as chance. With force, humor and sensitivity Damon Ferrell Marbut presents his debut, Awake in the Mad World, which frees its audience to believe again in the wildness of the young American heart, how it beats just to prove that it will always survive and succeed on its own terms.

Three Days in Seattle, a Novel of Romance and Suspense, by Debra Burroughs. (Still 0.99?)

Over 70 five-star reviews for this romantic suspense - available today for 99 cents!

"This is a fast paced romantic suspense novel, which grabs you from the first chapter and keeps you turning the pages. I read this almost in one sitting. I liked the style of the author's writing. Too often I feel as though there is too much filler in some books, but this one never lets up. Fifty percent of the time I am drawn to the more dark and gritty types of novels, and other times I am in the mood for something lighter. This book has a PG rating for violence, a G rating for sexual content, and there was no language that some might find offensive. I recommend this book if you are fan of romantic suspense." -- Amazon reviewer

Trails in the Sand, by P.C. Zick. (Still 2.99?)

Highly-praised, this touching Southern drama blends family relationships, love, and environmental disasters spanning three generations. Highly recommended by its readers.

"This story is unique, filled with a mixture of an amazing story line about a very complex family and it's survival through some very trying times. It's also a learning experience about things so many of us don't take the time to think about after some of our natural disasters leave our internet/newspaper and televisions as the #1 topic of the day. It leaves you thinking about what you can do to create change in our world and in our life. This author combines both in a phenomenal way. A Big Thumbs UP!! Congratulations to wonderful storyteller!" -- Amazon reviewer

A Family Saga Filled with Love Triangles, Sea Turtles, and an Oil Spill

When environmental writer Caroline Carlisle sets off to report on endangered sea turtles during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the last thing she expects is to uncover secrets - secrets that threaten to destroy her family, unless she can heal the hurts from a lifetime of lies. To make matters worse, Caroline's love for her late sister's husband, Simon, creates an uproar in a southern family already set on a collision course with its past.

Using real-life events as the backdrop, Trails in the Sand explores the fight to restore balance and peace, in nature and in a family, as both spiral toward disaster. Through it all, the ancient sea turtle serves a reminder that life moves forward despite the best efforts to destroy it.

The Shopkeeper (A Steve Dancy Tale), by James D. Best. (Still 3.99?)

It's the late 1870s and Steven Dancy moves west - and gets embroiled in a deadly feud. Pinkerton detectives, hired assassins, and memorable characters abound in his highly-praised western with over 60 five-star reviews.

"I have to say its one of the best western books I've read in a long time. You'll find yourself lost in the book--the fast pace keeps it interesting." --Woman'sDay, Maritza Barone

"The Shopkeeper is an entertaining story about a New York shopkeeper who has relocated to the wild west. The Shopkeeper is a smart gunslinger and star of a new western series." --Nashville Examiner, Diane Scearce

" A great book, I do hope that The Shopkeeper gets the readership it richly deserves." --Blogger News Network, Simon Barrett

"This is a fast paced tale with an interesting hero. In structure, with short chapters, crisp dialogue, and lots of movement, it's reminiscent of a thriller ... you'll certainly find enough twists and turns to provide an entertaining and exciting story." --Western Writers of America Roundup Magazine, August, 2008

In 1879, Steve Dancy sells his New York shop and ventures west to explore and write a journal about his adventures. Though he's not looking for trouble, Dancy's infatuation with another man's wife soon embroils him in a deadly feud with Sean Washburn, a Nevada silver baron.

Infuriated by the outrages of two hired thugs, the shopkeeper kills both men in an impulsive street fight. Dancy believes this barbarian act has closed the episode. He is wrong. He has interfered with Washburn's ambitions, and this is something the mining tycoon will not allow. Is a New York City Shopkeeper tough enough to survive in the Wild West?

Pinkertons, hired assassins, and aggrieved bystanders escalate the feud until it pulls in all the moneyed interests and power brokers in Nevada.
