Bargain Kindle books! (Monday July 15)

Here is today's selection of bargain Kindle books!

The Lonely Man: The Witch's Price, by S.M. White. (Still 2.99?)

This fantasy is full of "beautiful writing and depraved characters." And, for a chuckle, don't miss the author's bio on the book's Amazon page.

"This is a tale in the tradition of classic sword and sorcery. Adventure and capers abound, wrapped in a quest for redemption. Of course, there's also the meddling of sorcerers and ancient magics. S.M. White has created a grand yarn and has set the stage for a world full of peril and wonder. " -- Amazon reviewer

A man responsible for the downfall of a nation. The nation responsible for the downfall of a man.

He stole a god’s treasure to buy her back, only to find the decade spent acquiring the ransom had been too long. She died at the hands of a cruel king, and the Lonely Man takes no price for the grave.

Now, sought by the gods for his black past, Mhets Sorrowbringer refuses to give up his tainted life, spiting them with every breath. In order to thwart their efforts, and to stymie the pursuit of Death, Mhets accepts the help of a witch, help that comes at a terrible price.

Mhets must undertake a murderous quest to pay for the witch’s aid, a quest that pits him against men, sorcerers, and his own broken past. Journeying at the behest of the witch, Mhets learns just how black his heart has become, and how that darkness inside him might spell salvation for the world.

“The Lonely Man: The Witch’s Price” starts the tales of Mhets Sorrowbringer, a man wronged and angered in life. He owns a past riddled with atrocity, betrayal, and death, but here is where his true story starts. Here is where the man called Mirthless Mhets begins to turn his infamy into legend.

Short Excerpts:

“When a mortal man breaks a people, it is always blamed on the gods.”

Watching as she was taken handily from the room, still naked and disheveled, he found himself envying a whore.

“I’m a man about swords,” Mhets warned. “You will find no lack of challenge in me.”

A man could only spend so much of his time ignoring the present before the present made him a thing of the past.

“With tears and rage, I am called,” Mhets said. “I am called by throats that have gone raw with screaming. I am called by wailing babes who cannot yet speak or curse a name. By you I am called grandfather. By my enemies I am called death.” Mhets, impossibly, rose to a new height, his broad shoulders expanding, shaping him as a monolith atop his black. “I am Mhets Sorrowbringer, and my sword goes to the man with the most coin.”

Words in the Dark (Nora Cooper Mysteries), by Giulia Beyman. (Still 2.99?)

The widow of a murdered detective discovers puzzling and mysterious facts about her husband's activities. Translated from the original Italian publication.

"Gripping! Nora is grieving for the loss of her husband, who has been killed during a bank robbery. The story starts this way, and as a reader you already feel hooked, you somehow feel her pain, and you start to care about this lovely character, as if she were a close friend. There are many surprises in store for Nora, and our heroine is thrown into a world of mystery, turmoil, where her emotions are shattered in such a way that sometimes she wonders about her mental sanity." -- Amazon reviewer

Off-duty Chief Detective Joe Cooper is only months away from retirement when he’s gunned down during a bank raid. Nora, his wife of thirty years, is devastated but there’s another blow to come. She learns that shortly before his death he sold their newly purchased cottage in Martha’s Vineyard. This was to be their dream home, where they could play Scrabble with their grandchildren and watch them swim in the pool they planned to build.
Now Nora doesn’t know what to think. Did Joe really sell their cottage without telling her' How could he do that to her, and why? For daughter Meg, who has recently divorced her cheating husband, it’s yet another betrayal by a man. And given that her new suitor, Mike, appears to have an ulterior motive in getting to know her – well, it’s enough to destroy her faith in them entirely.
Nora is tormented by grief and doubt, but suddenly she receives mysterious and inexplicable messages written out in Scrabble letters. And only Joe could have written them. Is he sending her messages from the afterlife? Are they warnings?


Supported by old friend Steve, and new ones she makes after her bereavement, Nora has to dredge up strength she never knew she had to get herself and her daughter through this difficult – and dangerous – time. She has to open her mind to discover not only the truth about Joe, but also about life and its mysteries too.

Ashes, by Kelly Cozy. (Still 1.99?)

In this riveting story, Jennifer's day in the office is disrupted by a terrorist attack, from which she alone survives. Former covert operative Kincade watches the event from his TV, and is suddenly moved to hunt down those responsible.

"Cozy did a superb job of weaving an intricate web that will draw the reader in and unable to tear themselves away from the ending ... I crave books that make readers question their beliefs, that leave room for speculation and end with a bang. Cozy satisfied this craving and left me hungry for more." - Erica Moulton, POD People

Anonymous. That was Jennifer's life. But when she survived a domestic terrorist attack and her last-minute escape became the iconic image of the event, that life was over. Wanting only to disappear and become just another face in the crowd, she cashed in on her unwanted fame and moved to a small town, hidden away and safe.

Retired. That was Sean's life. A former covert operative - the kind the government denies exists - he'd been pushed unwillingly into a life of suburban peace and quiet. But his retirement ended when he saw Jennifer's rescue; from then on he only wanted to find those responsible for the attack, even if it meant turning rogue.

What Jennifer and Sean will both find is that nothing goes to plan, and their paths will cross in a way neither could have foreseen.

Deadly Memories, by Pamela M. Richter. (Still 1.99?)

From the author of Necromancer and Midnight Reflections, this mystery thriller has over 40 five-star reviews.

"This carefully sculpted story did not disappoint; it is infused with romance, friendship, challenges, tragedy, mystery, conspiracy, despair, hope, and danger, all leading to a suspenseful showdown." -- Amazon reviewer

DEADLY MEMORIES - What she can't remember might kill her...


"She doesn't remember a thing," Rolph snapped into the phone.

Andrea froze. His back was turned away from her. He didn't know she was there, listening.

"It's been six months, for God's sake. If you harm one hair on her head, I'll contact the authorities. My father would be disgraced, but that will not deter me."

Now Andrea couldn't move. There was no doubt Rolph was talking about her. She wondered how his father, the French Ambassador, could be disgraced.

His voice modulated to a threatening whisper. "This is the end. Otherwise she goes directly into protective custody, and I spill my guts. You've lied to me, made me into a damned traitor, and I'm angry enough to do it out of spite."

Now Andrea knew there were secrets he was keeping from her. What did he mean about protective custody' Was she in danger' The one blank spot in her mind was a mysterious car crash. She didn't know how she had landed at the bottom of a cliff in the Santa Monica mountains of Los Angeles. She remembered the fabulous party in Beverly Hills that night, but try as she might, she couldn't remember the sequence of events leading to the accident.

Rolph's last words chilled her, "I have nothing to lose. I'm a dead man."

Prairie (Journey of Dreams: Book One), by Chautona Havig. (Still 0.99?)

With over 50 five-star reviews, this contemporary Christian fantasy traces the lives of five people who get what they wished for... with unexpected results.

"This was a terrific, thought provoking book. If we lived in a world where people loved and took care of each other like they do in this book, we'd be in a much better place. The way they gave of themselves was such a good representation of the believers in Acts. I highly recommend reading Prairie. I am so thankful that I found Chautona's books!" -- Amazon reviewer

Journey of Dreams- Dreams have a way of infusing themselves into our souls–becoming an indivisible part of who we are. Five lives irrevocably change when their greatest longings become their new reality–and for one, vice versa.

The Journey of Dreams series is Contemporary Christian Fantasy, exploring the delights of our hearts and how the Lord meets them.

-------------------------------

In my dreams, I had always imagined wandering through meadows of golden, calf-high grasses that swayed in a gentle breeze. The dream recurred often—one I’d loved since my childhood. Sitting on the fire escape of our fourth-floor apartment in Pittsburgh, I’d escape into the woods of Wisconsin, the prairies of Kansas, and eventually the little town of De Smet, South Dakota, as I lived and breathed the adventures of Laura Ingalls. However, of all those places, the Kansas prairie somehow infused itself into my soul. I dreamt of the swoosh of the grasses, the musical sound of the cottonwoods when their leaves rustled in summer winds, and clear skies with only small tufts of clouds to mar their azure perfection...Some things we read in books, whether prose or poetry, and think we understand. However, until you’ve stood in a sea of grasses undulating like the waves of the ocean in the morning breeze, you cannot possibly begin to understand what the phrase, “sea of grass” means. As I stood, watching the rise and fall of the blades dancing in unison to a tune inaudible to me, a rush of contentment washed over me. In this vast sea of nothingness, I knew I had come home.

---------------------------------------

Jessa Davidson enjoyed a lifelong fascination and desire for life on the prairie. However, she never expected that fascination to become reality. A far cry from her apartment in Pittsburgh, the world of Prairie is more than just a change in geography--it's a change of life. In Prairie, Jessa examines the innermost parts of her soul and discovers desires she never knew she had.

From the moment she awoke, transported from the cold Pennsylvania winter, on the sunbathed summer prairie, she knew her life would never be the same.

The people of Prairie welcomed her and accepted her--almost without question, but so much of her life changed in that moment--her hopes, dreams, values, and the absolutes of things like time--that she feared accepting her new life as reality.

Is Prairie the dreams of her life come true--or her worst nightmare> Is it real? Is it permanent? Or will she awake to discover that she's lost her mind--or worse, her life?

And the biggest question on Jessa's heart? Does she care?
