Bargain Kindle books! (Saturday Aug 3)

Zen and Sex (a Romantic Comedy), by Dermot Davis. (Still 0.99?)

"What a great book! I have two children poorly with the chicken pox and it was the perfect antidote to nursing two kids all day. Made me laugh so much I was worried I'd wake my kids up!" - Umbeca

"Surprisingly entertaining read. I wasn't expecting it, but there was a deeper message intertwined with the sex, romance and comedy." - Carole M. Sauer

"I enjoyed the guided tour through the male mind. I found myself chuckling again and again. Most of all, I was rooting for the most unlikely romance of all because when it's love, it can be so unexpected." - Nicole Andrews

"I was so enthralled I was reading it on every break I took today. People were looking at me weird when I broke out laughing so much. I highly recommend this one to anybody who wants to be truly entertained." - Cathy B.

Martin is a 24 year old guy who falls in love with a 38 year old woman. He has to grow so fast emotionally that he feels like he just got hit by a speeding bus.
Not only is Frances fourteen years Martin's senior, but she's all about putting Zen into relationship, which involves every guy's worst nightmare: talking about your feelings, being conscious of your thoughts and above all, unabashed, honest communication at all times. Martin has no idea what he is getting himself into and the sharp learning curve that's required of him especially when he's thinking sex but she's thinking Zen.
"This is a short book but contains multitudes. The hero, Martin, is in despair about his ability to maintain a long-term relationship. After a number of failed match-making attempts he finally falls into a relationship with an older woman. At first leery, he realises that the age-gap doesn't matter and goes headlong into the relationship. The book examines what happens when two real people try to negotiate a relationship where each is uncertain about themselves and their feelings. 
Dermot Davis writes Martin from the first-person perspective, and this gives him the opportunity to delve the depths and scale the heights of Martin's roller-coaster. He writes affectionately and - it seems to me - accurately about the mental contortions that 'real' people go through as they work on their relationships. I'd recommend this book to anyone who's experienced failure and success in their romantic life. You'll recognise your feelings and the feelings of other people as they're acted out. You'll experience the frustration of dealing with a partner who seems to change his or her mind about how he or she feels. And you'll laugh copiously at Martin's attempts to find a way of having a real relationship with a real woman without giving up any essential parts of his own persona." - Keith Dixon, author

Encrypted: An Action-Packed Techno-Thriller (Book 1 of the Robin Hood Hacker Series), by Carolyn McCray. (Still 0.99?)

"A hair-raising thriller! Encrypted by Carolyn McCray is a fast paced, hair-raising thriller with a cast of fascinating characters. The heroine, Ronnie, has Laura Croft's moves, Sherlock Holmes' intellect and Indiana Jones' charm. This book stands on its own, but I hope we get to see more of Ronnie, Zach and especially Quirk in future books. If you like the challenging plot twists of Dan Brown, the immersive medical settings of Robin Cook or the larger than life, but still believable characters of Clive Cussler, you'll love "Encrypted."" -- Amazon reviewer

From Carolyn McCray, the #1 Bestselling author in Men's Adventure, Techno-thriller, Action Adventure & War, comes the #1 action packed, Techno-Thriller, Encrypted.

Praise for Encrypted...
"From the moment I started reading this book, I was in awe. Encrypted is action packed from the first sentence. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. From hackers, special agents, to the plague, you won't be able to put this one down until the end!"
Book Goddess Book Reviewer

A code written in unbreakable Angelic script.
The resurgence of the Black Death.
Can an FBI Agent and the Robin Hood Hacker save the world from another Dark Ages'

More praise for Encrypted...
"A plague and computer hackers with state of the art toys. I started the book while at the gym and spent the majority of the afternoon reading this fast-paced and well written book. The
main characters are developed and there are romantic overtures throughout -plausible and understandable - but unaddressed. The sequel cannot come fast enough."

S. Ackerman
Amazon Reviewer

"Encrypted is the first Carolyn McCray book that I've read and I'm looking forward to reading more of the Robin Hood Hacker trilogy. The story line is outstanding. I found myself looking around suspiciously as I heard people cough! ;-) The twists and turns of the plot kept me engaged and I found myself needing to try hard to turn off the Kindle at bedtime. The characters are well developed and make you want to know more about them. I'm a techie in my work life, but just about anyone would find this book a great read. I highly recommend it.
Kevin Campbell
Amazon Reviewer

"I found this book to be just as the title said an action packed techno thriller. I read at least a book a week but this was one of those impossible to put down books. It was well worth the money and based on this book I bought her other book and will be placing the next in her
series on my wish list."

Escaping Reality (New Adult Romance) (The Secret Life of Amy Bensen), by Lisa Renee Jones. (Still 0.99?)

"I have to say that Lisa hit another home run with Escaping Reality. If there is one thing that she is good at it's keeping your reader steamed up with romance and suspense that has you guessing at every turn. Just when you think you know what is going to happen next to Amy you are surprised and the story goes in another direction." -- Amazon reviewer

New Adult novel 
Recommended for 17+ due to mature themes and sexual content
Infinite possibilities....
Infinite passion.....
Infinite danger....
His touch spirals through me, warm and sweet, wicked and hot. I shouldn't trust him. I shouldn't tell him my secrets. But how do I not when he is the reason I breathe' He is what I need.

At the young age of eighteen, tragedy and a dark secret force Lara to flee all she has known and loved to start a new life. Now years later, with a new identity as Amy, she's finally dared to believe she is forgotten-even if she cannot forget. But just when she lets her guard down, the ghosts of her past are quick to punish her, forcing her back on the run.

On a plane, struggling to face the devastation of losing everything again and starting over, Amy meets Liam Stone, a darkly entrancing recluse billionaire, who is also a brilliant, and famous, prodigy architect. A man who knows what he wants and goes after it. And what he wants is Amy. Refusing to take "no" as an answer, he sweeps her into a passionate affair, pushing her to her erotic limits. He wants to possess her. He makes her want to be possessed. Liam demands everything from her, accepting nothing less. But what if she is too devastated by tragedy to know when he wants more than she should give? And what if there is more to Liam than meets the eyes?

Mirth, Murder & Mystery, by Jenna Bennett. (Still 0.99?)

"Great collection! I had already read everything I could get my hands on by Jenna Bennett, L. j. Charles and Sally Berneathy; I love what those ladies bring to a story! I had read other books by Adrianne Giordano, but "The Chase" was new and I can't wait for the next segment; Adrianne Giordano has a way with a hot lead and creates characters to which I have become attached. From knowing these authors and some of the books, I expected only the best and that is just what I got from the new books as well as my old friends." -- Amazon reviewer

Seven spellbinding stories by seven USA Today Bestselling 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.

The Ex Who Wouldn't Die by Sally Berneathy
Amanda has been trying for a year to divorce her lying, cheating, scam artist husband, Charley. Then he turns up dead, murdered. Finally they are no longer married! But she is the primary suspect and, as if that isn't bad enough, Charley's ghost shows up in her apartment. He was rejected, kicked back to earth, not allowed to go into the light. Even death did not them part.

A Touch of Ice by L.J. Charles
When Everly Gray touches photographer Mitchell Hunt and sees the image of a dead body, she dives into the murder ESP fingers first. Caught in a web of intrigue, El discovers an aptitude for breaking and entering, the pain of a gunshot wound, and the terror of facing a killer. What she doesn't learn--to keep her fingers to herself.

The Chase by Adrienne Giordano
Hard-driving attorney Jo Pomeroy is as determined as she is sexy--in other words, a major pain in NYPD Sergeant Gabe Townsend's butt. 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
During a live cooking show in her hometown, celebrity chef Katelynn Karr's father dies in front of millions of viewers, and suspicion falls on Kate when his autopsy reveals he was poisoned. Nick Juno, the boy she left behind and who is now mayor, is the only person who can prove Kate's innocence.

Let Us Prey by Jamie Lee Scott
Mimi Capurro is trying to put her life back together after the sudden death of her husband. Using the skills she learned as a secret service agent, she runs the Gotcha Detective Agency, along with her skilled computer forensics partner Charles Parks. Gotcha specializes in executive protection (bodyguards), and tailing cheating spouses.
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?

The Throwbacks by Stephanie Queen

To salvage his career, exiled Scotland Yard "Flying Squad" detective, the not-so-young David Young, joins the Boston Police Department.
But this rogue detective can't resist an unlikely romance with his young and vivacious decorator, Grace Rogers, even when she becomes a key witness in his high-stakes case--and like Kryptonite to his career and well-being.
