The Privateer Clause (Marsha & Danny Jones Thriller), by Ken Rossignol. (Still 0.99?)

A husband and wife team work security on a cruise line threatened by terrorists. 99 cents today!

"Are cruise passengers bored to tears? Not on the Sea Empress. All manner of mayhem strikes as soon as Marsha and Danny Jones hire on as security." -- Publishers Weekly

My wife just shot our waiter between the eyes when he came in with breakfast! But, he had it coming to him as he had a gun on the tray and was going to give us Eggs Benedict with a Glock! Join Marsha and I as we work really hard to protect the Sea Empress and her passengers from threats from every direction. There have been so many shots taken at this ship by terrorists that the cruise line thought their business would sink. That is why we were hired to provide security. Things go so bad that the passengers were taking photos and video and emailing the explosions and hostage scene to CNN and Fox News. Instead of scaring off passengers, bookings for the ship went through the roof. The Seven Seas Company caught the spirit of the passengers and even set up a special for the ship theatre with a pirate theme!
 

Finally, my wife and I needed a break and took a week off to sail on a private charter at the Grenadines and wouldn't you know, two local thugs dressed up as pirates tried to rob us while we sat at anchor for an intimate dinner for two. Well, our cook was great at other things besides her lobster spaghetti. Read more today! Buy the book!

You swing a staff until you're ready to swing a sword. Then you go on all kinds of adventures - fighting monsters, casting spells and saving damsels in distress. At least that's how it's supposed to work, but I didn't believe a word of it.

BOOK ONE OF THE EPIC FANTASY SERIES RETURN OF THE DRAGONS

Locked in his room in the castle, young Anders yearns for adventure. Until the day he opens a magic portal and a girl bursts into his locked room with a chemical warlock hot on her trail.

And adventure finds him -- an adventure full of danger, full of blood, fire, demons and evil. To face it, he'll need the sword given him by his blademaster, need the ancient words his grandfather gave him on his deathbed. Need the song that runs in his own blood, in his veins.

A sword will be reforged, magic words discovered, battles fought, friends made and lost, secrets revealed. And blood will be spilled. But will blade, word and blood be enough?

The Leadership Crisis : How America Lost the Middle East to Islamic Extremists - A novel inspired by true events from 1973 to 1981, by A. Patrick. (Still 3.82?)

An upstart foreign correspondent gets pulled into international events while juggling her CIA contacts and her love interest in the Carter administration - and becomes part of the story herself.

"This book has it all. It is captivating, exciting and has romance. It has a political and historical theme that presents history and events most of us can remember and relate to. A great account of history from 1973 to 1981. It also has an underlying love story of two highly driven people who have opposing politcal views. Their love transcends most obstacles. The use of fictional characters to tell the story of true events through their eyes and voices, really works. A must read." -- Amazon reviewer

The Leadership Crisis is a social, political thriller incorporating in-depth research, accurate historical events and portrayals of President Jimmy Carter, the Shah of Iran, Ayatollah Khomeini, Saddam Hussein, among countless other world leaders. Fictional characters weave intricate story lines that bring to life the sociopolitical culture of the 1970s while also illuminating the roots of Islamic extremists, terrorism and the economic and political consequences of America’s handling of the Middle East.

Diane Babel, an upstart, progressive news reporter, gets a break as a foreign correspondent with an international news agency. She is introduced to a secret global society of informers through a mysterious former CIA operative, Richard Harden. Diane’s on-again-of-again love interest is Jack Quaid. They graduated from George Washington University together and maintained an adversarial but romantically charged relationship. Jack, a Republican, ultimately switches teams when offered the job of assistant press secretary for the Carter Administration.

Diane continually secures classified information from Harden earning international recognition for her intrepid news reports. Instructed by the Carter Administration, Jack spies on Diane in attempts to obtain secret information, which causes a rift in their relationship. From Tehran to the Oval Office to Camp David and other exotic locations in between, Diane uncovers the roots of Middle Eastern terrorism, deception, corruption and flawed American foreign policies. Her reporting eventually brings her too close to the truth. She is among the hostages taken during the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran.
