Rise of the Retics (Rosehaven: the Hidden City), by T.J. Lantz. (Still 2.99?)

In this imaginative and thrilling novel, Young Tyranna is hunted down by humans who are trying to wipe out her entire species.

"The author has managed to very successfully tie his fantasy world into the real world, and I thought the concept that non-human creatures have been and continue to be shunned and hunted by those with power made for a strong plot device. I can't remember reading another fantasy book where it's the supernatural characters that are threatened by normal humans and on the defensive side. The characters, the author's unique approach to writing a fantasy world contained within the real world and balance between dark and humorous moments make this a young reader fantasy story that just about anyone can enjoy." -- Amazon reviewer

For almost a thousand years humanity has been making a concerted effort to eradicate the world's "retics", an eclectic collection of non-human, intelligent species. Recently, those efforts have been strengthened and far more successful than ever, though the Council of Rosehaven, the "retics" hidden sanctuary city, cannot figure out why.
 
No one realizes the danger of this this more than Tyranna Wolfskin, a young girl ripped from her boring, everyday life in the middle of the night by a vicious group of "retic" hunters. Thrust into a struggle for her own survival, Tyranna must find a way to accept what she is and learn to understand a world she never knew existed.

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

Danny and Marsha Jones, security agents on a cruise ship, fly into action when terrorists turn their relaxing cruise into an excursion of deadly thrills.

"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!

Fall From Love, by Heather London. (Still 0.99?)

Young Holly Treadwell becomes drawn to the man who blames himself for the mountaineering death of her college sweetheart.

"This was another great book by Heather London. I shouldn't be surprised, her work is amazing. Seriously, this book was fantastic. Who knew that she could write something that would touch the readers so profoundly. I cried like a baby the whole book. I connected with the characters so much, that I couldn't help but feel their pain. She wrote beautiful characters that had their own unique voice. I didn't dislike any characters, not even Travis. What Holly and Carter go through is tragic. Their lives will never be the same. But this story is about love, loss and healing. It's a new adult book not to be missed. I have to give this book an outstanding five stars for the emotions it evoked in me." -- Amazon reviewer

*This is a New Adult Romance. Contains language, adult situations, and is intended for mature readers.*

It takes just one moment for everything to change...

Struggling to put her life back together after a tragic mountaineering accident kills her college sweetheart, twenty-one-year-old Holly Treadwell is trying to set aside her grief, forge ahead in school, and find herself again.

When Carter Hansen, a guy who brings back horrible memories from the night of the accident, finds his way back into her life, Holly’s unsure if she should let him in. He terrifies her in more ways than one and invokes feelings in her that she thought were buried forever.

Everyone tells Carter that what happened on the mountain that night was just a terrible accident, but even then, he can’t help but carry around the guilt and is unable to forgive himself. He’s drawn to Holly and being near her helps ease his conscience and gives him the release he needs.

As Holly and Carter’s relationship grows, they begin to realize that the more time they spend with one another, the more their wounds begin to heal—her grief and his guilt. But when Holly learns the details about the night of the accident—what everyone has been keeping from her—it will rip open old wounds and tear apart what they’ve both worked so hard to overcome…

One Tiny Secret, by Adam Kunz. (Still 0.99?)

The teen daughter of a small-town sheriff becomes a suspect in a missing persons case.

"One Tiny Secret had me on my toes the entire time. Every time that I thought I just KNEW who the killer was, Ugh, something would happen and NOPE not him. Then NOPE, not her. There were surprises, twists and turns, through the whole book and I was shocked and in aw by the end." -- Reader's Confession

**Mature Content Warning** Recommended for 17+ due to language, violence, and sexual content.

Just one tiny secret has the potential to ruin everything.

Being the daughter of the sheriff in a small town like Holden Ridge means that eighteen-year-old Danielle "Dani" Marks' life is under constant surveillance. She's made a habit of staying under the radar by being a floater among social circles at school, which has kept her out of trouble--until now.

After a missing persons case stirs up the entire town, Dani finds herself caught right in the middle of the scandal. When she's labeled a possible suspect, things quickly go from bad to worse. The sudden return of her old flame, Parker Reed, manages to make her whole situation even more complicated.

When an elusive unknown person begins to blackmail Dani by threatening to reveal her deepest secrets, Dani refuses to play along. That is, until the person's actions take a violent turn. Holden Ridge loses its sense of quaint town security, and Dani is caught in a deadly game of cat and mouse.

Who can she trust when anyone around her could be a suspect?

One thing's for certain though: Never underestimate the power of one tiny secret.
