Free and bargain Kindle books! (Thursday Aug 15)

Free!

A Cold Day for Murder (Kate Shugak #1), by Dana Stabenow. (Still free?)

"Kate Shugak is a loner. She's a loner on a homestead on federal land in Alaska. She's a loner because she killed a child abuser years ago and it haunts her. It left physical and mental scars. All of this makes Kate a unique personality in mystery fiction. But she also has friends-half the people on the tribal grounds are relatives and many of the others are good friends. They add more unique flavor to this mystery. Kate is called in to find a friend who went missing while searching for a congressman's son who is missing. During the investigations, all of these unique personalities come together along with plenty of other local flavoring. Dana Stabenow has created a compelling, sympathetic series family. I hope to see a lot more of Stabenow and Shugak." -- Amazon reviewer

Somewhere in the hinterlands of Alaska, among the millions of sprawling acres that comprise “The Park,” a young National Park Ranger has gone missing. When the detective sent after him also vanishes, the Anchorage DA’s department must turn to their reluctant former investigator, Kate Shugak. Shugak knows The Park because she’s of The Park, an Aleut who left her home village of Niniltna to pursue education, a career, and the righting of wrongs. Kate’s search for the missing men will take her from self-imposed exile back to a life she’d left behind, and face-to-face with people and problems she'd hoped never to confront again.

The first novel in the popular Kate Shugak Series, A Cold Day for Murder established Dana Stabenow as a new voice in Alaskan mystery writing, and earned her an Edgar Award.

Deadly Fun, by Pamela M. Richter. (Still 2.99?)

"Great book, great characters, a lot of action mixed in with a cruise. Lo and Lance were great together, as you were reading you could just see the sparks flying between them! I was rooting for them all the way. I started reading this ebook at work, but had to bring it home over the weekend so I could continue to read it. It had me hooked from the beginning and I couldn't wait to see what happened in the end with Lo and Lance. Hopefully, there will be more books with these characters, the author can take them in so many directions! I highly recommend this book." -- Amazon reviewer

DEADLY FUN
Exotic luxury cruises to the Bahamas are supposed to be fun and relaxing. This trip starts as a routine investigative job for a woman who works in disguise and undercover, using her beauty to entice men to reveal their secrets. The exciting and sometime harrowing is expected, but this job will be like no other.

Her boss is aboard--as is a mafia enforcer with murderous ties to her own family. She chases suspects through the tropical islands, finds herself in physical confrontations with knife, fist and firearms. By the end of the cruise, the deck is awash in blood. Can she survive a deadly fun cruise--and her boss?
______________________________

Excerpt:
"Marconi's family killed your husband."
He hated the stricken look in her eyes, the tears he could see hovering on her bottom lids. "I'm sorry, Lo. I didn't know. I just wanted my best investigator to work this case. I really had no idea."
"Which one?"
"We don't know who actually did it."
Lo was crying, her hands over her face. "Do you know what they did to him?"
Torture would be a nice word in comparison, Dan thought. He knew exactly what they had done to her husband. He couldn't stand seeing her pain and moved over to sit on the bed beside her. He put his arms around her and pressed her head to his shoulder. He could feel her tears through his shirt.
"I can't seem to get over it," she said, her voice muffled against his shoulder.
"No one could, Lo. No one could." He rocked her in his arms as the waves rocked the ship and let her cry.

Reviews:

"Night Secrets" is a wonderful fantasy filled with magic, human kindness and evil...If you enjoy good versus evil fantasy, this one must be on your to be read list." Chere, Paranormal Romance Reviews

"Passionate, exciting, gripping and romantic, Night Secrets is as impossible to put down as it is to forget."
Julie Bonello, eCataRomance

"Shirley Martin does a great job with keeping her readers on the edge of their seats. With so many secrets, there is no telling when it’s all going to fall apart. At every turn I was anxious to know if good would win out over evil. Even with the odds stacked against them, Keriam and her followers never give up.

Martin shows the true strength of love, kindness and friendship in a time where doubt and fear could easily win out. I found this storyline to be very interesting, intense, and exciting. It sucked me in from the beginning to the very end. I definitely plan on reading more from this author." ~ 5 Blue Ribbons, Courtney Marie, Romance Junkies Reviews
