"A wonderful time travel romance. I love time travel books and Tamara Gill has written a wonderful romance that is believable and a pleasure to read. I found the details of medieval life fascinating but it didn't take over from the fact that our 21st century heroine has ended up in the Twelfth century. The hero, William, just walks off the page and you can't just help but swoon over such a handsome knight. I stayed up late each night as I couldn't put the book down, I really enjoyed reading it :) I also really like the way Tamara writes and she did a brilliant job with each of the character's POV (point of view). If you like time travel stories or are interested in Medieval times or simply like a good romance then Defiant Surrender is the book for you." -- Amazon reviewer

Unlucky in love, Maddie St. Clair hides behind an antique store and her mudlarking hobby. That is until she finds a medieval ring that throws her back to 1102 Cumberland and into the life of Lady Madeline Vincent, heiress to Norman lands and about to be married to an autocratic Baron, William Dowell, nine hundred years her senior.

Lord William Dowell protects his own. Usually, from his closest neighbor and long standing foe the Baron of Aimecourt. Forced to marry his dead enemy’s daughter, Lady Madeline, by King’s decree, he hides his growing respect for his wife behind a wanton mistress. Yet when Madeline’s life is threatened, William’s loyalty to his kin is tested by the astonishing desire that flares between them. Not to mention the love that Madeline ignites that would last an eternity. If fate will allow . . .

18 & 1/2 Minutes: Nixon's Darkest Secrets Revealed, by Ronald C. Meyer. (Still 0.99?)

If you buy (or already have) the printed book, the ebook is free, through Amazon's new MatchBook program.

"Entertaining page-turner! Combining in a very fun way several wild and not so wild conspiracy theories with Ayn Rand's Objectivism, Scientology's clearing technique and Ken Wilbur's integral framework, 18 ½ Minutes purports to tell what the famous missing portion of President Nixon's WaterGate tape was all about. Mix in the Mafia, Tesla's unlimited energy experiment, neo-con political machinations, the Mossad, the Second Battle of Fallujah and a little romance and you have an entertaining and thought-provoking page-turner of a techno-thriller." -- Amazon reviewer

"18 & 1/2 Minutes" is a contemporary political mystery/thriller set in Denver, Colorado and Washington, D.C. This book has an epic revelation at its heart – it answers one of America's greatest unsolved political mysteries – what’s on Richard Nixon’s missing eighteen and a half minutes.

When political talk show host Amy Rutledge embarks on a documentary revealing the real reasons behind America’s two unsuccessful wars in the Middle East, she stumbles upon a web of intrigue. It is an intrigue that finds the Neo-cons, the Nixon White House, the Mafia and the ultra libertarian, Scientology-like think tank, the Club of Athens all connected with the 20th century’s greatest inventor, Nicola Tesla and his mysterious claim of free energy.

The Cagliostro Chronicles, by Ralph L. Angelo Jr.. (Still 2.48?)

If you buy (or already have) the printed book, the ebook is only $0.99, through Amazon's new Matchbook program.

"Fresh and inviting. The story writing is engaging and the character development is spot on. You don't have to be an avid science fiction reader to enjoy this book -- it appeals to fans of the genre and newcomers alike. The book is not bogged down in technical jargon and flows as you read it. The story has a futuristic feel but doesn't seem too far fetched or overreaching. I can't wait for the next book to come out." -- Amazon reviewer

Before The Flood, by John Sherman. (Still 3.99?)

"I've noticed a trend of realism in messianic stories. Dan Brown offers conspiracy. Anne Rice offers the awkwardness of puberty. I find John Sherman's Before The Flood offers something else. Guilt. The story is about an atheist reporter who comes to know about a young man with a holy aura. The plot takes on us on a trip through disbelief and finally to a form of agnostic understanding. This is not a religious tract. There are no undertones of persuasion as in LaHaye and Jenkins' Left Behind Series. This book focuses on the question of our acceptance of a religious figure in modern times. The hubristic juxtaposition of our society is the setting. We can either look to ignore religion and can't respond to a circumstance like in the book, or we accept religion and don't change as a result of the same. This is the cleverness of the premise. A holy figure coming to warn us would recognize our societal paradox and attempt to reconcile with us before the end. That action comes out of guilt, and I find it realistic and human. I recommend this to anyone who has a strong handle of their own spirituality and the role of fiction as entertainment." -- Amazon reviewer

An atheist journalist in San Francisco receives an invitation to tell the story of a young street artist claiming to be the Second Coming of Christ. Despite his misgivings, the reporter accepts the assignment and begins to learn more about this young man’s life. As he delves deeper into the story, the journalist slowly begins to believe in the boy’s sincerity, but the more he uncovers, the more unsettled he becomes as he starts to ask unanswerable questions – has this boy been sent from above? If so, has he come to save us from our sins or punish us for them?

Charlie & Noel - An Advent Calendar Story, by Franziska Macur. (Still 0.99?)

"As a minister I've been a part of many staff meetings where we've spent hours looking at Advent resource options for our church community. In the end, we always felt like we had found fine options for folks in the church... but my own family never actually did any of the activities or devotions! THIS sweet story is perfect for our boys (five and eight years old) and I'm confident they'll be excited to read about the donkey each night. We'll even follow through with the leads and questions at the end of each piece because they are manageable and engaging! I'm super excited about this book and our boys will be, too." -- Amazon reviewer

Charlie & Noel – An Advent Calendar Story is a story in 25 chapters to read as a family with children (4-10 years old), one for every day of Advent. You will get to know Charlie, a little boy who wishes he could just skip the whole waiting part and jump right into the presents. But Charlie doesn’t realize what he would miss or just how many magical moments the season has waiting for him.
This book is for families who
• Love spending time reading as a family
• Are looking for new traditions for the season leading up to Christmas
• Want to help their children think about the true meaning of Christmas
• Would like a slower, simpler pace that leads to a truly meaningful holiday
