Bargain Kindle books! (Friday Jan 3)

Never Smile at Strangers (Grand Trespass Series, Book #1), by Jennifer Jaynes. (Still 0.99?)

On sale for 99 cents today, this unforgettable thriller has over 300 five-star reviews.

"I finished reading this book at 2 AM on a Tuesday night, because there was no way to pull myself out of the story without finishing it. Fans of mystery novels and tension-filled psychological thrillers will genuinely enjoy reading "Never Smile at Strangers." Minar-Jaynes has combined everything I loved about the old "Fear Street" novels with everything truly scary that keeps me awake at night now. There is something chilling about the darker side of humanity, and Minar-Jaynes does an excellent job of reminding the reader of exactly why parents tell their children not to talk to strangers. The characters' fear is honest, and their pain and confusion can be felt in the writing. Furthermore, she has tapped into what makes "mystery" novels so compelling when they're done right- the suspense in this book is incredible, and the ending was like the explosive final scene of a movie that no one can stop talking about. I give major kudos to Mrs. Minar-Jaynes for writing a book that deserves front window-status in any bookstore." -- Amazon reviewer

WHEN TEENAGE GIRLS VANISH in what was once considered a safe Louisiana bayou town, the lives of four desperate young locals take unexpected turns, begging the question: Do you truly know those closest to you'

When nineteen-year-old Tiffany Perron vanishes from rural Grand Trespass, Louisiana, best friend HALEY LANDRY's relationship with her boyfriend becomes increasingly strained. To make matters worse, her impressionable younger sister BECKY has begun idolizing an impetuous, seductive 15-year- old who's encouraging her to do dangerous things.

Meanwhile, ERICA DUVALL, a reclusive 19-year-old aspiring writer, befriends Haley. Ten years earlier, Erica's mother abandoned her, leaving her with the womanizing used car salesman father she loathes. She's decided to write a novel based on Tiffany's disappearance; a novel that she hopes will lead to a reunion with her estranged novelist mother.

RACHEL ANDERSON, a 36-year-old mother of two, is having trouble coming to terms with her husband's affair with the missing girl--a relationship that supposedly ended shortly before Tiffany's disappearance. What's more, she comes to the realization that someone is watching her family through the large back windows of her house.

A DISTURBED MAN also lives in the area. Ever since his mother's murder four years earlier, he's been raising his insolent teenage sister, ALLIE, who sleeps with truck drivers for money. He considers women to be dangerous--and his world revolves around his fear and hatred for them. He's terrified of his sister, knowing she's intent on pushing him over the edge.

Playing The Game, by Simon Gould. (Still 0.99?)

The King of Threadneedle Street (A Rougemont Novel), by Moriah Densley. (Still 0.99?)

"Beautiful, clever, and emotional. Densley's style is enticingly sensual yet tasteful--palpable emotional depth is blended with reverent attention to tactile details. The languid, consistent pacing gives the reader time to savor the prose. And the depiction of the nineteenth century British stock market was fascinating and clearly well researched, if not a bit over this reader's head. A cast of memorable side-characters offers hope of interconnected future stories. The only drawback I personally perceived was that we see very little of Andrew's parents, his mother in particular, and so her motives and personality may come off a bit more caricature. As the story itself spans a roughly 3-year period and involves a bit of travel and chase, there are chapters in which the reader will languish along with the separated protagonists. But the ultimate payoff is soul-touchingly worthwhile." -- Amazon reviewer

He owns three shipping companies, a diamond mine, and his own castle.
He knows Portuguese, Hindi, Mandarin and Morse code.
His assets net thirteen million.

Everyone thinks Andrew Tilmore, Lord Preston, the financial prodigy dubbed “The King of Threadneedle Street,” has it all, but he wants the one prize money can’t buy: his childhood sweetheart.

Alysia Villier can’t say if it’s worse having Andrew’s father in control of her inheritance or Andrew in control of her heart. He’s ruined her for any other man, but she simply can’t give in to him. She knows he’s destined for great things—marrying a courtesan’s daughter would jeopardize everything he stands for.

Keeping Alysia out of trouble and away from eager suitors becomes a cross-continental quest for Andrew, and he won’t be stopped by his old-fashioned family or the disapproval of the ton. After all, he’s a man with the power to play newspapers and investors like pawns, tumble world markets and incite riots…but can he win the biggest gamble of his life?
