Enjoy hard-boiled mysteries with strong female sleuths? This popular kick-off to the Sydney Rye mystery series is free today!

"Well written with depth and details. It is fast paced, full of adventure, murder, loneliness, and family secrets, It is a wonderful story full of mystery that will have you wanting to see more from the dynamite young Joy (Sydney Rye). *This book is for 18+ with some graphic content including gory descriptions and non-erotica sex scenes*" -- Amazon reviewer


DEATH IN THE DARK (A Sydney Rye Novella, #2) is on Sale for $.99 thru 6/19
The Sydney Rye series of mysteries features a strong female protagonist and her rescue dog, Blue. This series is recommended for the 18+ who enjoy some violence, don't mind dirty language, are up for a dash of sex and can handle twist and turns that keep them reading late into the night.

When the series begins Sydney Rye is named Joy Humbolt. She does not like people telling her what to do, so it comes as no surprise that she was just fired from her last job. When she buys Charlene Miller's dog-walking business on Manhattan's exclusive upper east side, it seems like the perfect fit: Quiet environment, minimal contact with people.

But then one of her clients turns up dead, and Charlene disappears. Rumors say Charlene was having an affair with the victim--and of course, everyone assumes Joy must know where she is. Joy begins to look into the crime, first out of curiosity then out of anger when there is another murder and threats start to come her way.

When police detective Mulberry is assigned to the case, Joy finds a kindred spirit--cynical and none-too-fond of the human race. As they dig deep into the secrets of Manhattan's elite, they not only get closer to the killer but also to a point of no return. One last murder sends Joy Humbolt hurtling over the edge. Her only chance of survival is to become Sydney Rye.

UNLEASHED is the first book in Emily Kimelman's best selling Sydney Rye series of dark murder mysteries. DEATH IN THE DARK (A Sydney Rye Novella, #2) and INSATIABLE (A Sydney Rye Novel, #3) are both available in the Kindle Store. All three books are available in The Sydney Rye Box Set.

STRINGS OF GLASS (Sydney Rye, #4) is due out Summer 2013.

Escapade, by Kasey Michaels. (Still 0.97?)

This regency romance is climbing the historical novel charts on Amazon, and is bargain-priced today.

"How Sweet is revenge? Ms Caldonia Johnson, Simon Roxbury; Viscount Brocton and at least a half dozen other zany, inept, bumbling, funny funny characters are sure to find out. Ms Johnson wants to shoot the bad man in the knee so he will be sure and suffer whenever the weather is damp. Her first attempt goes astray when she mistakes the Viscount for her prey. From that moment on this hilarious book just gets better and funnier. The Viscount's Mamma is a story on her own. She wants her son to marry, but not before she can find a strong virile, (with emphasis on the virile), man for her bed. Nobody is going to call her dowager. Anyway Ms Michaels as per usual puts it all together in her wonderful style that will have you rolling on the floor with laughter, and unable to put the book down because you can't wait to see what kind of mischief come next. Definitely a five star keeper." -- Amazon reviewer

"Using wit and romance with a master's skill, Kasey Michaels aims for the heart and never misses." -- Nora Roberts

"Surprising twists, great wit, charming characters and an impeccable portrait of the Regency are features that have made Kasey Michaels a beloved author. ESCAPADE is a delightful romp." -- RT Book Reviews

Caledonia Johnston lies in wait inside the dark town coach of one Noel Kinsey, rotter, eager to exact justice in the name of her absent brother. It may not be the best plan, but it seems workable, at least until she realizes she has hidden herself inside entirely the wrong coach.

Worse, the man now being held at pistol-point is maddening, unflappable, condescending, and quite unimpressed that his would-be assailant holds his life in her hands. In fact, he seems to find her amusing.

Callie escapes the encounter, but not the man, as it falls out that Simon Roxbury also has a bone to pick with Noel Kinsey, and it would seem Miss Johnston and her bloodthirsty plans could serve him very well.

An unholy alliance is struck, the two conspirators battle each other, a matchmaking mama, two interested and not above interfering friends, and a poor soul (who doesn’t look his best in pink), in this delicious tale of revenge gone wrong and romance definitely gone right!

368 pages, with a 3.9-star rating from 28 reviews.

Now she's much older, wiser and ready to give her con artist life a rest.

Once known as the high school weirdo, Camden is bigger and badder than the boy he used to be and a talented tattoo artist with his own thriving business. Ellie's counting on Camden still being in love with her but what she's not counting on is how easily unrequited love can turn into obsession over time. When Camden discovers Ellie's plan to con him, he makes her a deal she doesn't dare refuse, but her freedom comes with a price and it's one that takes both Ellie and Camden down a dangerous road. Approx. 100,000 words.
