"This is the strangest, weirdest piece of science fiction that I have ever read! And I loved every minute of it!" - The Kindle Book Review

Louisiana Ghost Story: A Contemporary Paranormal Romance, by M.A. Harper. (Still 0.99?)
"Ghosts and New Orleans go together like crawfish and gumbo, as Harper (The Worst Day of My Life, So Far) demonstrates in this delectable spooker spiced with romance, surprises and authentic local color. Chef Phil Randazzo is settling comfortably into his marriage to Michelle Wickham when inexplicable events begin to upset the household. Michelle concludes that the mischief is the work of her first husband, Cajun musician Adrien Paul Savoie, killed in a car accident three years before. A visit to a psychic confirms that Adrien's ghost is trying to tell Michelle he's "not going to let her be hurt again." As Phil and Michelle parse the meaning of that cryptic warning, they realize that each is haunted by ghosts of the past that must be brought into the open and exorcised if they're to continue as a couple. This emotional tale could easily have collapsed into the bathos of a routine paranormal romance, but Harper shows confident control of its elements, regularly jolting the reader with creepy reminders that there's a supernatural mystery to be solved. Some transparently symbolic dreams slow the story in places, but the clues all come together in a magnificently orchestrated finale that shows it's possible for a ghost story to be smart as well as scary." -- Publishers Weekly
368 pages, with a 4-star rating from 75 reviews.
The Nirvana Plague, by Gary Glass. (Still 3.99?)
"A difficult book to put down. Your attention is grasped continually with ever growing suspense and mystery. The author captured the essence of James Michener incorporating facts into the saga; and the essence of Steven King's art of timely and mounting suspense. And the ending - what an ending!" -- Amazon reviewer
4.6-star rating from 7 reviews.
The Highlander's Hope - A Contemporary Highland Romance, by Cali MacKay. (Still free?)
"When sexy academic Catriona Ross goes up against irascible Scottish playboy Iain MacCraigh in her hunt for a legendary necklace, it can only end in a Happily Ever After, but the fun is watching how MacKay weaves the heat and the humor and the mystery plot together. Cat and Iain strike plenty of sparks--one way and another--and set against the background of the Highlands, and a tale of true love in the time of Bonnie Prince Charlie, the story of how Cat and Iain find the Hope and fall in love, is a wonderful ride." -- Amazon reviewer
200 pages, with a 4.1-star rating from 278 reviews.
