Here is today's selection of bargain Kindle books!

Halfskin, by Tony Bertauski. (Still 0.99?)

This thoughtful sci-fi read explores the idea of biomites, which are artificial stem cells that can cure all injuries and diseases. It comes at a cost though because once you are 50% biomite, the government 'deactivates' you. Follow Cali and Nix as they try to outlive their deactivation!

"I want to what happens next: always the sign of a good book. Intriguing , fast paced , kept my attention. Super book " -- Amazon reviewer

Biomites are artificial stem cells that can replace any cell in your body. No more kidney failure, no severed spines or blood disease. No cancer. Pharmaceuticals become obsolete. With each dose of biomites, we become stronger, we become smarter and prettier.

We become better.

At what point are we no longer human?

Nix Richards nearly died in a car accident when he was young. Biomites saved his life. Ten years later, he’s not so lucky. The Halfskin Laws decree a human composed of 50% biomites is no longer human. Halfskins have no legal rights and will have their biomites shutdown. It’s not called murder, merely deactivation.

Cali Richards has been Nix’s legal guardian since their parents died. She has lost far too many people in her life to let the government take Nix. She is a nanobiometric engineer and will discover how to hide him. But even brilliance can succumb to the pressure of suffering. And technology can’t cure insanity.

Cali and Nix keep a slippery grip on reality as they elude a maniacal federal agent dedicated to saving humanity from what he calls 'The Biomite Plague'.

Frontier Wife, by Margaret Tanner. (Still 2.99?)

Thomasina leaves England for Australia in the 1800's in hopes of making a life for herself and running a farm. There are many obstacles, one of which is the neighbor, Adam. What starts out sour soon turns sweet as the two realize the other might be just what they needed.

"This author demands your attention with a skintight read while delivering her story with a simple account of the goings on in every scene. I hung on to, and agreed with Tanner's values about love, and marriage. With the clean cut workings of Margaret Tanner's writing style, I found her sensual prose beautiful. I won't forget this book. " -- Amazon reviewer

Fear almost crushes Thomasina (Tommy) Lindsay when she realizes the enormity of what she has undertaken - a rundown farm in frontier Australia. From green English fields she journeys to a land where danger lurks around every corner. Savage natives, bushfires, and a harsh, unforgiving environment, not to mention a hostile neighbor, Adam Munro, who is hell-bent on taking over her farm.

Adam has lived his life without love and doesn’t need it now. Passion is for fools. All he wants is a presentable wife who will provide him with heirs, and he decides Tommy Lindsay is that woman.

Only in the new world can a high-born young Englishwoman and a tough frontiersman challenge the social boundaries and ignite a romance that will fulfill all their hopes and dreams.

The Promise, by James McGoldrick. (Still 3.99?)

Here's some historical fiction that's part family drama and part romance. Rebecca raised an orphan son as her own, but now the boy's father, the Earl of Stanmore, wants him back in England. This novel has romance mixed with 1700's England history.

"This book was the best romance I have read in a long time. You cared about the characters, you wanted to know more about them... all of them from the two butlers Daniel & Philip to the family of Lord North. Fine job by the author. I was engrossed in the story at the end and didn't want it to end." -- Amazon reviewer

The Promise is a wonderful book for any lover of historical fiction." (New York Times bestselling author Heather Graham)

In America for the last ten years, Rebecca Neville has raised her young charge as if he were her own son. But now, his father-the Earl of Stanmore-has learned of his fate and sends for him from England. Rebecca must do everything in her power to keep her promise to the boy's dead mother-and keep her heart safe from his mysterious father...

After mistakenly believing she has murdered her lecherous employer, Rebecca Neville flees into the night and finds refuge with a mysterious lady traveling with a newborn baby. The woman helps Rebecca secure passage on a ship leaving England, and in return Rebecca assumes responsibility for the woman's child when his mother dies on the voyage to America. Ten years later Samuel Wakefield, the Earl of Stanmore, discovers the whereabouts of his son and demands he be returned to his real family. Now Rebecca must return to England with a boy whom she has come to think of as her own child and give him up to a total stranger. McGoldrick's gift for characterization extends from the book's courageous heroine and wounded hero down to a fascinating cast of secondary characters, including a viperous villain and a wonderfully scheming mistress. This vibrant Georgian historical is perfect for readers who like a nice mix of history and passion. John Charles

September 28, 2001: When Rebecca Neville was attacked by her employer, she defended herself and had to flee from the law. During her flight, Rebecca met a dying woman, Elizabeth Stanmore, who was on her way to America with her new born son, James. They left London together with the agreement that once Elizabeth died, Rebecca would raise James as her own.

Ten years had past when the lawyer for the Earl of Stanmore showed up at Rebecca Ford's door. James was hard of hearing and had one misshapen hand, but the kind lawyer relayed that the earl was claiming James as his heir. Rebecca went with them to London to make sure James was happy before she left his life. The father, Lord Stanmore, was a handsome, but cold hearted man who cared nothing for his new found son. Slowly, the earl saw what true love really was as he watched Rebecca and James. Passion ignited between Rebecca and the Earl. All might have been well, however, outside forces were at work.

Lady Louisa Nisdale had been the Earl's mistress for quite a while and refused to acknowledge the fact that their affair was over. In addition, the Earl had been fighting in Parliament to end slavery in England. The Earl's neighbor, who owned and abused slaves, was none too happy about that either.

***** A definite winner! The author is a husband and wife team who seem to have their pulse on what readers want to read! Excellent plot and interesting sub-plots that will capture the attention of its audience and hold onto them like cement glue! Highly recommended! *****
