Her first thought: "Who are you?"

Up until now, finding even a boyfriend had seemed impossible—been there, got the broken heart, sworn off men for good. Then a few martinis with Carter…no, Connor Reed and she's gone from first meet to marriage in one night!

Megan wants a lawyer. But Connor's shocking bombshell?

"I don't want a divorce."

Death Beckons (Mortis Series Book One), by J.C. Diem. (Still 0.99?)

"I loved this book. What a fantastic Australian sense of humour coming through loud and clear. Very well written. Read it in less than one day. Couldn't leave it alone until it was finished. Has everything: humour, tension, horror, fast paced." -- Amazon reviewer

After working late one Friday night, Natalie Pierce is attacked by a deceptively decrepit looking old man. Awakening in a dark and musty mausoleum, her fate is sealed when the bald, wrinkled, hideous creature bites her on the neck. After suffering through three nights of torment, Nat awakens to discover that she is no longer human.

Lord Lucentio, vampire justice bringer, has been sent to Australia to execute a rogue. Silvius had broken several of their strict laws and had fled from the Comtesse, Council and Court who rule the European vampire nation. Stumbling upon Natalie while hunting his true quarry, Lucentio quickly realizes she is anything but normal. He suspects that she is in fact, Mortis, the scourge of his kind. Luc’s sense of duty compels him to protect the fledgling vampire, despite knowing the doom she carries with her.

Natalie is incredulous to learn that a prophesy foretold that she would become the worst of all monsters. Apparently, her destiny is to wipe out vampirekind and bring ‘death to the damned’. As a twenty-eight year old clothing store manager with no particular hopes, dreams or goals for the future, she couldn't help but feel that someone, somewhere made a big mistake when choosing her for this job.

294 pages, with a 6-star rating from 3 reviews.

Galloglass (Galloglass : The Templar), by Seamus O'Griffin. (Still 2.99?)

"Seamus O'Griffin is one extremely talented writer--he writes with that rare confidence of a writer who knows that he has what it takes to create a world so compelling in its verisimilitude, its colors and atmosphere that he doesn't need to resort to cheap tricks. Every line, every page of `Galloglass: The Templar' is evident with the author's sense of surety--that's why he is able to `dance gracefully' with MacAlasdair's tales of adventures. And this book is such a literary achievement that I'll be glad to read another of the author's works." -- Amazon reviewer

Epic, high adventure, Galloglass details the tales of Ronan MacAlasdair,grandson of Angus Mor MacDonald, Lord of the Isles. Given to the Templars to save him from outlawry,the story takes the young Isleman from Islay to the Levant where he comes to manhood and finds fame, surviving intrigue, battle and seige. A rousing story with adult themes, this is the first in a series.

202 pages, with a 5-star rating from 3 reviews.

PURE VISION: The Magdalene Revelation, by Perri Birney. (Still 2.99?)

"A thrill ride in the vein of The Da Vinci Code but with a much larger vision for all of us. The alchemy is part historic fiction, part spiritual adventure, and a variety of interfaith metaphysics that metamorphosize into a golden vision of world peace . . . a page turner." -- Paul Hertel, Whole Living

"Presents a fascinating story full of intrigue and history. Birney's fiction seamlessly blends science and religion into a tale worthy of Indiana Jones . . . The book left this reader confident that idealism is not dead and that, sometimes, it can be the road map by which we might save ourselves." --Cynthia Warren, Daily Freeman

An ancient artifact is stolen . . . A long-lost document is found . . . A mysterious and dangerous journey unfolds . . .

New York Times reporter Maggie Seline writes an explosive book that offers a controversial solution to the Middle East crisis. When she uncovers a radical energy scheme that threatens the oil industry, Maggie suddenly vanishes. Her disappearance ignites a worldwide women's march toward Jerusalem that rattles the status quo and parallels a frantic race to possess ancient talismans.

An upcoming peace conference hides the true motivation of Giovanni Mabus, outgoing president of the European Commission, who intends to exploit a powerful mythological connection between two legendary treasures. In league with the clandestine pseudo-Masonic group, Propaganda Due, he sets in motion events aimed at furthering political and military chaos in the Middle East in order to accomplish his aims. Meanwhile, Maggie and Dead Sea Scrolls scholar Michael Sonada race to thwart the sinister plot -- a race that takes them into the forbidden regions of Nepal to make an earth-shattering discovery.

PURE VISION brings together ancient myths and contemporary challenges in a provocative and inspiring thrill ride. At every turn, Perri Birney's intriguing scenario encourages a closer look at the spiritual forces that infuse the world's political battles.

586 pages, with a 4.9-star rating from 7 reviews.
