Free and bargain Kindle books! (Friday Aug 9)


A Dream of Death (Detective Lincoln Munroe, Book 1), by Harrison Drake. (Still free?)

"Harrison Drake does a great job of creating a plot which follows the trail of clues that lead to the solving of two crimes - one in the present and one from the past. All of the characters are well-developed. This includes a look at the life of the main character, Detective Lincoln Monroe. The incorporation of the Monroe's life outside of work pushes this story above other crime novels in which you read only about the work done by the police and detectives. The details, along with the emotional reactions to events in both areas of his life, give the character much more depth and makes him seem more real. If you read crime novels, this one should definitely be on your reading list." -- Amazon reviewer

Ontario Provincial Police Detective Lincoln Munroe is coming up empty. As a serial killer terrorizes the area surrounding London, Ontario, Canada, Lincoln finds himself at a standstill waiting for the perfect killer to make his first mistake.

While the body count rises without any leads, Lincoln finds himself haunted by dreams of discovering skeletal remains in the forest beneath a bloody knife. The dreams seem to come true when Lincoln is called to Algonquin Park to assist an old colleague. There he is tasked with overseeing the excavation of human remains buried more than twenty-five years earlier; remains that will bring to the surface cold cases, a painful past and memories Lincoln had long since forgotten.

'A Dream of Death' is the first in a series of character-driven police procedurals written by a Canadian police officer.

Fires of Destiny, by Linda Barlow. (Still 0.99?)

Loves endures, even in the face of danger and death.

Special: Usually $4.99, but only 99 cents for a short time.

As a child, Alexandra Douglas adored her older, wilder friend Roger Trevor, a troubled lad who turned his back on his family. Ten years as a sellsword and pirate have transformed Roger into a darkly handsome but enigmatic stranger. His sudden return to his father's castle causes a passionate uproar in the bookish and otherwise sensible Alix.

Dangerous to know...

Surprised by his unlikely desire for his childhood friend, Roger is determined to encase his heart in ice. Haunted by his past and trapped in a lethal web of intrigue, he fears entangling Alix in a plot that could doom them both to a traitor's death.

But destiny has set them on colliding paths, and Roger can no more resist the fire in Alix than she can turn away from his increasingly ardent touch.

New, revised edition of a classic, award-winning romance

When the original version was published in 1986, Linda Barlow received the Romantic Times award as New Historical Romance Author of the Year. Fires of Destiny was also a finalist for the Rita Award from Romance Writers of America.

"Linda Barlow's sexy, suspenseful page-turners are pure pleasure to read." Susan Elizabeth Phillips.
