Our Little Secrets (Montana Romance), by Merry Farmer. (Still free?)

"A new look at Westerns! Have you ever sunk into a story that has you begging for more and has you searching for answers from the first page? That is what I got with Our Little Secrets. The past haunts the present as two people try to move into the future. A quick marriage with no questions asked. A budding and growing love. And a past that refuses to stay under wraps. A great story that will keep you wanting to know more. With depth characters and a story line that is unique in its own but has all the strength to pull you in and not let you up for air. I'm not a fan of Western but this story may change that." -- Amazon reviewer

Michael West swore he would never fall in love again. So when the beautiful and wily Charlotte steps off the train looking for a new life he jumps at the business opportunity she presents. Engaged forty-five minutes after meeting, married the next day, Michael thinks he’s found everything a respectable man should have. Except that Michael is as far from respectable as they come. They agreed not to ask questions about each other’s pasts, but when the past seeps into their present Michael suspects his passionate new wife is not who she says she is. Too bad he’s already fallen in love with her.

Charlotte Baldwin has a secret. She fled Philadelphia to escape the sins of her past but someone is following her. What better way to hide than by marrying Michael West, Cold Springs, Montana’s enigmatic shopkeeper? A new name, a new life, and a passionate husband is exactly what she needs to leave her sins behind. But when it comes to keeping secrets Charlotte may have met her match in Michael. When a connection neither of them expects catches up with them, the shocking revelation means Charlotte may have run right into the arms of her enemy.

No sin stays a secret forever….

The Rebellion of Miss Lucy Ann Lobdell, by William Klaber. (Still 0.99?)

"Klaber's Lucy narrates in a voice that reflects the age: a bit formal, expressing her insecurity over passing for a man but secure in her knowledge of who she is. Lucy's voice is always honest, even as she lives what others consider a lie. This fictional memoir could have come directly from aged, yellowing pages written in flowing cursive by the subject herself. From the moment I entered Lucy's world I didn't want to leave it. I didn't want to stop reading at night; I wanted to skip work the next morning to find out what happens next. This is the most engrossing novel I've read in a long, long time." -- Amazon reviewer

One day in 1855 Lucy Lobdell cut her hair, changed clothes, and went off to live her life as a man. By the time it was over, she was notorious. The New York Times thought her worthy of a lengthy obituary that began “Death of a Modern Diana . . . Dressed in Man’s Clothing She Win’s a Girl’s Love.” The obit detailed what the Times knew of Lucy’s life, from her backwoods upbringing to the dance school she ran disguised as a man, “where she won the love of a young lady scholar.” But that was just the start of the trouble; the Times did not know about Lucy’s arrest and trial for the crime of wearing men’s clothes or her jailbreak engineered by her wife, Marie Perry, to whom she had been married by an unsuspecting judge.

Lucy lived at a time when women did not commonly travel unescorted, carry a rifle, sit down in bars, or have romantic liaisons with other women. Lucy did these things in a personal quest—to work and be paid, to wear what she wanted, and to love whomever she cared to. But to gain those freedoms she had to endure public scorn and wrestle with a sexual identity whose vocabulary had yet to be invented. Lucy promised to write a book about it all, and over the decades, people have searched for that account. Author William Klaber searched also until he decided that the finding would have to be by way of echoes and dreams. This book is Lucy’s story, told in her words as heard and recorded by an upstream neighbor.

Angels Watching Over Me (Shenandoah Sisters Book #1), by Michael Phillips. (Still free?)

" I highly recommend this heartwarming historical novel about two girls from very different backgrounds who, after suffering a common tragedy, come together to help each other out, eventually becoming the best of friends. Although labeled as an adult book, I think this novel would have the most appeal to teenagers, because of the young characters. I look forward to reading the rest of the books in this series and finding out what happens to Mayme and Katie next." -- Amazon reviewer

Book 1 of SHENANDOAH SISTERS. Two young Southern girls, one the daughter of a plantation owner and one the daughter of a slave, barely survive the onset of the Civil War and the loss of both their families. When these tragic circumstances bring them together, they join forces to discover if they can make a life for themselves. As their preconceptions give way to experience, they gradually learn to value their contrasting and complementing strengths and skills as they face the formidable task of keeping body and soul together in the aftermath of this devastating war. But is it possible the Lord they have come to know has something bigger in mind for the plantation than either of them can imagine?

Girl with Guitar (Kylie Ryans), by Caisey Quinn. (Still free?)

"Loved this. "Girl with Guitar" just did it for me. It's as simple and as complicated as that. The characters were well developed and multidimensional. The emotions were real and gritty. The dialogue was good. I loved the whole thing, even the parts that made me cry. Thank you, Caisey Quinn, for making me feel again." -- Amazon reviewer

*This is a New Adult Romance and contains MA 17+ Content.

After Kylie’s dad dies in a freak accident, he leaves her with nothing other than her crazy stepmother, Darla, and the ability to play guitar. When Darla kicks Kylie out and she loses her job all in the same day, she hops a bus to Nashville determined to make her late father’s dreams come true.

Waitressing and saving her pennies to record a demo, her big break comes when she’s asked to join a tour going down the tubes with once platinum album-selling country music superstar Trace Corbin. But touring with Trace is hardly a dream come true since he’s pretty much drinking his career down the drain. If Kylie can’t pull Trace out of his rut, he’ll pull her and her dreams down with him.

"A refreshing heroine and a great story you'll hate to put down!" - Diane Alberts, Bestselling author of the Take A Chance series

"Kylie Ryans has the perfect mix of talent, strength, vulnerability, and chutzpah. An unputdownable read." -E.M. Tippetts, bestselling author of the Someone Else's Fairytale series

"Girl With Guitar gave me everything I could possibly want. A misunderstood hero. A feisty heroine. Amazing chemistry. Fun moments mixed with the steamy...Great lyrics provided the soundtrack to this country love story that made me laugh out loud, swoon, and even tear up. Can't ask for more than that!" -Rachel Harris, author of My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century
