The Governess Affair (The Brothers Sinister), by Courtney Milan. (Still free?)

Tender and memorable, this historical romance has over 70 five-star reviews. Free today.

"That's how Milan's writing is consistently... When I read her books, I know I will be experiencing something better than good, something extraordinary and thoughtful." --Sarah Wendell

"A battle of wills with the sweetest of prizes: true love." --RT Book Reviews, on The Governess Affair

The start of a new series from New York Times bestselling author Courtney Milan...
 

She will not give up.

Three months ago, governess Serena Barton was let go from her position. Unable to find new work, she's demanding compensation from the man who got her sacked: a petty, selfish, swinish duke. But it's not the duke she fears. It's his merciless man of business--the man known as the Wolf of Clermont. The formidable former pugilist has a black reputation for handling all the duke's dirty business, and when the duke turns her case over to him, she doesn't stand a chance. But she can't stop trying--not with her entire future at stake.

He cannot give in.

Hugo Marshall is a man of ruthless ambition--a characteristic that has served him well, elevating the coal miner's son to the right hand man of a duke. When his employer orders him to get rid of the pestering governess by fair means or foul, it's just another day at the office. Unfortunately, fair means don't work on Serena, and as he comes to know her, he discovers that he can't bear to use foul ones. But everything he has worked for depends upon seeing her gone. He'll have to choose between the life that he needs, and the woman he is coming to love...

The Governess Affair is a prequel novella (about 33,000 words) to the Brothers Sinister series. It is followed by The Duchess War, which is now available.

My Ex From Hell (The Blooming Goddess Trilogy), by Tellulah Darling. (Still free?)

The first in the blooming goddess trilogy, this humor-filled contemporary romance is free today.

"This book was hilarious! Sophie has to be one of my favorite main characters of all time. She has a fantastic humor that kept me reading from start to finish. Her personality is relatable and her inner monologue left me in stitches." -- Amazon reviewer

Sixteen-year-old Sophie Bloom wishes she’d been taught the following:

a) Bad boy’s presence (TrOuBlE) + teen girl’s brain (DraMa) = TrAuMa (Highly unstable and very volatile.)
b) The Genus Greekulum Godissimus is notable for three traits: 1) awesome abilities, 2) grudges, and 3) hook-ups, break-ups, and in-fighting that puts cable to shame.

Prior to the Halloween dance, Sophie figures her worst problems involve adolescent theatrics, bitchy yoga girls, and being on probation at her boarding school for mouthy behaviour. Then she meets bad boy Kai and gets the kiss that rocks her world.

Literally.

This breath stealing lip lock reawakens Sophie’s true identity: Persephone, Goddess of Spring. She’s key to saving humanity in the war between the Underworld and Olympus, target numero uno of Hades and Zeus, and totally screwed.

Plus there’s also the little issue that Sophie’s last memory as Persephone was just before someone tried to murder her.

Big picture: master her powers, get her memories back, defeat Persephone’s would be assassin, and save the world. Also, sneak into the Underworld to retrieve stolen property, battle the minions of Hades and Zeus, outwit psycho nymphs, slay a dragon, rescue a classmate, keep from getting her butt expelled from the one place designed to keep her safe …

… and stop kissing Kai, Prince of the Underworld.

My Ex From Hell is a romantic comedy/Greek mythology smackdown. Romeo and Juliet had it easy.

212 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 15 reviews.

Heartshot (Posadas County #1) (Posadas County Mysteries), by Steven F Havill. (Still free?)

Small-town under-sheriff Bill Gastner is nearing retirement when a deadly car crash sets him on the trail of an elusive killer. Free today.

"Septuagenarian undersheriff Bill Gastner of Posadas County, N.M., is the skeptical, endearing narrator of this mystery debut. Conscious of advancing age and his bulging waistline, Gastner distrusts both computers and the skills of newly elected sheriff Martin Holman, a former used-car salesman. Readers will enjoy this caper and look forward to future appearances of curmudgeonly charmer Gastner." -- Publishers Weekly

Posadas County, New Mexico, has very few mean streets and no city-slick cop shop. But it has an earnest, elected Sheriff and an aging Undersheriff—William C. Gastner.

Pushing sixty, Bill has no other life than law enforcement—and doesn’t want one, even if he’s being gently nudged toward retirement. Then, trouble strikes. A car full of teens, evading a traffic stop, goes air borne into a rocky outcrop, killing all five passengers and revealing a package of cocaine stashed under the seat. Has someone brought serious crime to the county'

When a second explosion of violence fells an undercover cop, the sheriff’s department pulls together to make a formidable team, but its weak spot may be Bill. His mind is too tough to crumble but his long-mistreated body is gradually succumbing to stress. Ignoring all advice, he pilots the case to a final confrontation where the fate of the killer—and the cop—will be decided…

217 pages, with a 4.2-star rating from 70 reviews.

When Derry and Amedee's love affair ends in tragedy, Derry descends into an abyss of remorse and despair. In his overpowering grief, this tormented newspaperman embarks on an obsessive
crusade for redemption, a tender quest that eventually will lead him to peace of mind, and to someone who will help him build a new life from the ashes of the past.
