Bargain Kindle books! (Saturday Jun 8)

Not Without Risk, by Sarah Grimm. (Still 0.99?)

After a crime scene puts dark-eyed detective Justin Harrison in collaboration with beautiful photographer Paige Conroy, and the tension ramps up when Paige is targeted by a raging killer.

"I enjoyed this well-written, subtle, suspense novel. The couple was so endearingly realistic. I loved how in control Paige was even when control was being taken from her. She is a strong female lead. Justin is a fabulous alpha male who brings out my protective instincts. The hero and heroine were so appealing and so obviously made for one another. I liked the fact that the romantic issues added to the intensity of the mystery itself. This was a skillful suspense story with a fantastic ending. I recommend this be added to the must-read lists of suspense fans, as well as contemporary romance readers who enjoy spine-tingling situations." -- Romance Studio

The last thing he wanted was what he needed most...

Six agonizing months after a slug collapsed his lung, Sergeant Justin Harrison manages to return to the one place where he shines--the San Diego homicide division. Nothing will stand in the way of proving he is fit for active duty. Especially not the long-legged brunette who just stumbled into his crime scene.

Photographer Paige Conroy spent years hiding from her past. Then a late night telephone call brings it crashing back. An old friend is in town and needs her help. When she arrives at his hotel room four hours later, he's dead. Suddenly, she's the target of a madman, and Paige must turn to Sergeant Harrison for protection.

But who is the bigger threat to her... the faceless assailant she fears will steal her life or the dark-eyed detective she knows could steal her heart?

Free to Love (Books We Love contemporary romance), by Sydell Voeller. (Still 3.99?)

After Joanna's husband is killed in a fire, she struggles to deal with her growing feelings for her deceased husband's brother. Emotional, intelligent romance from Sydell Voeller.

"[The author's] characterizations are excellent, not to mention she has a special way of appealing to the senses. The reader feels as if she is there. I've never been to Oregon, but after reading Ms. Voeller's story, I want to get on the next plane and visit.  This romance cleverly reveals the conflict between Joanna and Austin, but above all, the reader sees the enduring power of love." -- Amazon reviewer

He offers to stay and help her with the much needed repairs.

Joanna soon discovers, however, that Austin’s presence is proving more disturbing than helpful. His resemblance to Kyle is uncanny, thwarting her resolve to put her husband’s memory to rest. Worse, she is strongly attracted to Austin. Austin, a veterinarian, shares Joanna’s love of nature, and the two find much common ground as they team up to help clean up the beaches and save the native birds and wildlife from the encroachment of civilization.

Can Joanna let go of her grief and love Austin in his own right? Or will he always remain the a painful reminder of her husband?

Seven spellbinding stories by seven award winning authors with characters you'll never forget.

A Cutthroat Business by Jenna Bennett
Everyone has warned new-minted realtor Savannah Martin that real estate is a cutthroat business. But Savannah doesn't think she's supposed to take the warning literally ... until an early morning phone call sends her to an empty house on the 'bad' side of town, where she finds herself standing over the butchered body of a competitor, face to face with the boy her mother always warned her about.

Even death did not them part.

The Chase by Adrienne Giordano

Working together on a high-profile task force charged with busting sales of counterfeit goods has been rocky from the start. Now, she’s on the radar of a mysterious smuggler not afraid to use violence to evade the law. At the risk of their lives—and their hearts—Gabe and Jo must find him before he finds them.

The Secret Ingredient by Misty Evans

Mimi never expects to run into her old college flame Nick, when she takes on an executive protection case for New York Times bestselling author Lauren Silke. But when Lauren’s assistant is murdered, the homicide case, along with Mimi, land in Nick’s lap. Will Mimi and Nick be able to solve this murder without killing each other first?
