Free and bargain Kindle books! (Wednesday Jun 12)


NOT FOR RANSOM, by Ben Easton. (Still free?)

While at a class reunion in an English inn, the US First Lady is captured by an unlikely collection of escaped terrorists. This thriller is free today!

"Great read, gripping and insightful. The villains are as interesting as the heroes/heroines. An isolated hotel on Dartmoor, England, a jailbreak of a mixed group of terrorists and some unexpected VIPs staying at the Three Tors Hotel which is targeted by jihadists and a Free Ireland veteran. Violent and not without a sex scene, this book pleases on a number of levels. The author can plot clearly, which is a nice change. The ending has a satisfying twist and left me wondering - might there be a follow-up?!" -- Amazon reviewer

There are some interesting guests at the isolated old coaching inn on Dartmoor, England. One of them is the US First Lady, Kathryne Mannocks. Tired of her husband’s behaviour, she angrily leaves the White House to join former university friends for a re-union there. Efforts to impose blanket security upon her have been stubbornly refused, leaving her vulnerable and minimally protected.
A group of terrorists stage a murderous breakout from nearby Dartmoor prison. Armed with guns and explosives, Dravid, an Islamic jihadist and Eamon, a Free Ireland veteran, lead an uneasy and temporary alliance to further their causes. They make their way to the Three Tors Hotel and ruthlessly and bloodily capture a prize that will further their deadly objectives.
But while two powerful governments find themselves held in a standoff, there are others at the hotel with the strengths to pit themselves against this post massacre mission.

Frozen Betrayal a Detective Alec Ramsay Novel (Soft Target Series), by Conrad Jones. (Still 2.99?)

From the 'Soft Target' series, Detective Ramsay races to find a missing six-year-old girl in the midst of a worldwide upheaval of crime and drugs. From 'Gold Dagger' nominee Conrad Jones!

Conrad Jones, nominated for a 'Gold Dagger' award 2013

Jodie Barker is six years old. Her father is slipping into heroin addiction, her mother estranged in a love affair and her dynamic career as an investigative reporter. When fuel supplies run dry and the Western World grinds to a halt, riots break out across the civilised world plunging the inner cities into lawlessness. As a fragile peace is restored, Jodie Barker disappears from home. Her father is critically injured at the scene along with three members of a drug gang.
Detective Superintendent Alec Ramsay leads the Major Investigation Team in the search for the missing girl. The investigation is marred by the death of two undercover Drug Squad officers in the neighbouring county. Internal politics and misinformation send their search into chaos. The evidence indicates that the cases are linked and when Jodie’s mother Carol goes missing, a spider’s web of corruption, murder and organised crime shrouds her disappearance.

This has to be the best UK crime fiction I have read in years . I had not read Jones before, but I am from now on. This book did not have any fillers . Every chapter was filled with something to tease you. I couldn't put it down. An author who is now on my list of favourites alongside James Patterson, Chris Carter, Karin Slaughter , Chris Mooney . The story was Fast Funny Fierce . The characters were on point. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent again, 2 Feb 2013

By solgjc

This was my first read by Conrad Jones now i recommend him to everyone,i read this book in one go as I couldn't wait to find out what would happen next a real page turner.I noticed some reviews criticized proof reading,but for me a far more boring read may be perfectly proof read but nothing of substance,i didnt notice any of the flaws some other reviewers banged on about the plot drew me in. I have now bought every book he's written on kindle. Buy it i felt it was on par with the early Martina Cole books.

Trials of Artemis (The Haberdashers), by Sue London. (Still 0.99?)

Enjoy this bestselling historical romance for 99 cents!

"Captivating tale of complex characters exploring uninvited relationships, battling preconceptions and discovering twists and turns of human nature and a satisfying plot with equally satisfying intelligence. Can't wait to get to know the other Haberdashers!" -- Amazon reviewer

The Haberdashers
In 1805 three little girls decided to create a "boys club" because boys have more fun. Their childhood was filled with sword fighting, horse racing, and archery. Now in 1815 they are all grown up and expected to join Society. Who will marry such independent and deadly misses?

Trials of Artemis
(Regency, Hot) Loving Lord Lucifer...
An independent bluestocking sneaks into a library to read rare Greek texts and ends up with a husband instead.


Jacqueline "Jack" Walters loves archery and Greek military history. In her third season she has failed to inspire so much as one marriage proposal and is planning to settle into the quiet life of a spinster.

Gideon Wolfe, Earl of Harrington, has been avoiding marriage but a case of mistaken identity in the library has left him saddled with an argumentative and unwilling fiancée.

What readers are saying:

"I enjoyed seeing the relationship play out between the two main characters, especially since the author decided to make them both forthright and honest with each other, being able to pick up on emotional cues, instead of relying on misdirection and misinterpretation to lengthen the story, as is usually the case in this
genre."

"Their characters and their relationship develop at an almost perfect pace as the book progresses (with bumps along the newlywed road, of course). If you like a strong female, this is the book for you."
227 pages, with a 4.8-star rating from 33 reviews.
