Living the dream. It's a cliché newly free Martha Burton is doing her best to make come true in Charente Maritime, where life is good and the sun shines more than in any other part of France.

But darkness lurks in every paradise.

Claude Cousteau is an ordinary-looking man of moderate temperament and regular habits. Nevertheless, he has set himself a task and nothing is going to get in his way.

Son of a Gunfighter, by Van Holt. (Still 0.99?)

Prolific western author Van Holt offers a great price today on two novels. Here's one: the highly-praised "Son of a Gunfighter."

"Vengeance is sweet -- and so is this novel! It's the first time I'm trying out Von Holt, and I enjoyed what I discovered. To call his novels simple westerns would be to do it an injustice. Here we have an author who adds depth to his characters and puts together interesting story lines that hit on time-old themes such as vengeance and survival. Dan Whitton is out to get the killer and tormentor of his father, and what lies in store for him is quite an adventure. I recommend this novel, and plan to read more from Von Holt." -- Amazon reviewer

Dan Whitton’s father was the most hunted and desperate killer the west had ever known—not hunted by the law, but by the man who had  destroyed his chance of living in peace with the girl he loved.
Now Bob Whitton was dead, and the man who had finally succeeded in having him killed was still alive, fat and prosperous and gloating in his triumph, and already planning a similar fate for Bob Whitton’s son, Dan.
So Dan Whitton strapped on his guns and headed for the wild Cimarron country where his father had spent so much time, hunted by his enemies. Those who were still alive would soon be hunting Dan Whitton.

Dead Man Riding, by Van Holt. (Still 0.99?)

"From a Van Holt fangirl! Another outstanding Van Holt work! I've had the absolute pleasure of being recommended Van Holt and reading all of his work to day. This was my last read, Dead Man Riding and if possible it's even better than the rest. These are the kind of Westerns that deposit you right in the middle of town and leave you to choose whether you want to duck into the saloon or behind a building when the shooting starts. The noose on the cover of this book was meant to be Fanton's final resting spot .. but in the morning it swung empty- Let the story take you. It's a great one. I am never able to see where Van Holt is going to take me before it happens, this is why I adore his Westerns so much." -- Amazon reviewer

Pre-release pricing for a limited time! Regularly $7.99

In this Eastwoodish western, no one in that troubled part of Texas had ever heard of anyone named Fanton, but that was the name prodigal brother Hawk Spradlin whispered just before he pulled his gun on a quiet, grim stranger and got himself killed.

It happened one evening just before dark in Hoot Spradlin’s dugout store and saloon. The skinflint rancher was saving his coal oil until full darkness forced him to light a lamp, and he could not see the stranger clearly. But he got the drop on the tall man from behind with his shotgun, disarmed him and with the help of his lawless riders he hung Fanton to a cottonwood tree and left him hanging there that dark stormy night.

The next morning the noose hung empty from the cottonwood limb. The man they had hung was gone. Hoot Spradlin ordered his men to hunt Fanton down and kill him. They didn’t know whether they were hunting a real man or a ghost. But one thing was certain – he could ride and shoot like the devil.

WARNING: Reading a Van Holt western may make you want to get on a horse and hunt some bad guys down in the Old West. Of course, the easiest and most enjoyable way to do it is vicariously — by reading another Van Holt western.

Van Holt writes westerns the way they were meant to be written.

Pride's Run, by Cat Kalen. (Still 3.82?)

"Loved it! Shapeshifter Pride is a seventeen-year-old girl who has been raised in captivity as a killing machine. When her cruel master decides it's time to tame her, unless she wants to be broken her only option is to run. She knows running will bring harm to people who are already suffering but she's left with no choice. These same people willingly make sacrifices in order for her to win freedom for them all. Her chance for escape comes when she's sent to capture a shapeshifter named Logan, a boy who represents everything she'd like to be. Although the attraction is instant and mutual, Logan is a long time gaining her trust. The fact that he has secrets of his own and is unwilling to share them makes it more difficult for her to believe in him. This debut YA novel by the talented Cat Kalen will appeal to teens and adults alike. I stayed awake well into the morning hours in order to finish it." -- Amazon reviewer

Eighteen-year-old Pride is a tracker with a hunger for blood. Taught to trick, seduce and to lure, she is the perfect killing machine.

Kept leashed in the cellar by a master who is as ruthless as he is powerful, Pride dreams of freedom, of living a normal life, but escape from the compound is near impossible and disobedience comes with a price.

When she learns her master intends to breed her she knows she has to run.

Pride soon learns if she is to survive in the wild, she must trust in the boy who promises her freedom, the same boy she was sent to hunt.
