"The Drake Equation is thankfully not a explosive romance fantasy but a subtle and heartfelt love story. And for that reason, I loved it." - Ellie, from Lit Nerd
"I don't suppose there's a better compliment you can give a writer than to tell her she made you think. That should be enough to convince you that Heather Walsh's book is worth your time."- Aaron Oglesbee, guest reviewer at Books with Benefits

"When you read something so gracefully done, you just sit down and have a moment." -Chandra, from Stary-Eyed Heart Book Blog

She’s a Democrat, he’s a Republican. She spends her days fighting global warming at an environmental non-profit, he makes his living doing PR for Bell Motors and their fleet of SUVs. But as soon as they meet, Emily Crossley and Robert Drake realize they have encountered their intellectual match. You’re never challenged, he tells her. You’ve surrounded yourself in a cocoon of people who think exactly the same way you do. She hurls the same accusation back at him, and the fiery debates begin.

Despite both of their attempts to derail it, there is no denying that they are falling in love. But their relationship is threatened by political differences, Robert’s excessive work hours, and Emily’s fear of losing her identity as she falls deeper in love.

Can their love survive? The Drake Equation is a tale of modern love and all its complexities.

Fledgling (The Dragonrider Chronicles), by Nicole Conway. (Still 0.99?)

"This was a great book, kept my on the edge of my seat the entire time. I love the main character Jae and his motley band of friends. Jae and Felix are good opposites and the pacing of the dialogue and story is fast and exciting. Could not put it down." -- Amazon reviewer

Jaevid Broadfeather has grown up as a wartime refugee, hiding from the world because of his mixed racial heritage. He feels his future is hopeless, until a chance encounter with a wild dragon lands him in Blybrig Academy—a place usually forbidden to anyone but the rich and royal. But Jaevid’s case is special; no dragon has voluntarily chosen a rider in decades, so the proud riders of Blybrig must begrudgingly let him join their brotherhood despite his bloodline. Lieutenant Sile Derrick, a sternly tempered man with a mysterious past, becomes his instructor and immediately takes a peculiar interest in Jaevid’s future.

While struggling through the rigorous physical demands of training, things begin to go awry. Jaevid witnesses the king’s private guards kidnapping Sile in the dead of night. When none of the elder riders are willing to help him, Jaevid begins a dangerous adventure to save his instructor.

Shame, by Alan Russell. (Still 0.99?)

"Hard-boiled police procedural! Serial murders are a dime a dozen in mystery novels, but this is the first I've read which features the child of a serial murderer -- as well as a writer covering the story. A gripping psychological suspense novel with interesting characters (especially the transsexual), plot twists, and fine dialogue. In Shame, he manages to integrate local color and occasional jokes without breaking the mood of the book." -- Amazon reviewer

Although it’s been many years since the death of his father—an infamous serial killer known as Shame—Caleb Parker still struggles to free himself from his father’s dark shadow. Caleb wishes only for a normal life without being branded a “killer’s son,” but his dreams are shattered when a new string of murders surfaces that are all too reminiscent of Shame’s terrible killings.
When the police label him the prime suspect, Caleb forges an unlikely partnership with true-crime author Elizabeth Line, a writer whose career began when she survived an encounter with Shame and who then went on to document his life—and death. As the body count begins to pile up, Elizabeth and Caleb come to the conclusion that one of them has been targeted by the killer, and a game of cat and mouse begins as they try to uncover the murderer’s identity before becoming his next victims.
Brutal and unapologetic, Shame draws you into the mind of a serial killer with no chance of escape until the last page is turned.

345 pages, with a 4.0-star rating from 329 reviews.

Sleep With the Lights On (A Brown and De Luca Novel), by Maggie Shayne. (Still 0.99?)

"Shayne crafts a convincing world, tweaking vampire legends just enough to draw fresh blood." -- Publishers Weekly on Demon's Kiss

"Maggie Shayne is better than chocolate. She satisfies every wicked craving." -- New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Forster

"Tense . . . frightening . . . a page-turner in the best sense" -- Romantic Times Magazine on Colder than Ice

Through the eyes of a killer…
Rachel de Luca has found incredible success writing self-help books. But her own blindness and the fact that her troubled brother has gone missing have convinced her that positive thinking is nothing but bull. 

Her cynicism wavers when a cornea transplant restores her sight. The new eyes seem to give her new life, until they prove too good to be true and she starts seeing terrifying visions of brutal murders—crimes she soon learns are all too real. 

Detective Mason Brown's own brother recently died, leaving behind a horrific secret. In atonement, Mason donated his brother's organs, though he's kept the fact quiet. Now he wants to help Rachel find her brother, but when he discovers the shocking connection between her visions and his own brother, he suddenly has to do everything in his power to save her from a predator who is somehow still hunting from beyond the grave.

384 pages, with a 4.6-star rating from 89 reviews.
