Bluegrass Undercover (Bluegrass Brothers), by Kathleen Brooks. (Still free?)

"Fun read! This series is one of the most enjoyable stories that I have read. Kathleen Brooks is very talented and shows so much in so little time and you are in the middle of it and can't wait to see the next page. I recommend all her books. I can't wait to get the next one." -- Amazon reviewer

This is the first book in the Bluegrass Brothers series, which includes New York Times and USA Today BestSelling titles Rising Storm, Acquiring Trouble, Relentless Pursuit and Secrets Collide. This is the follow-up series to the bestselling Bluegrass Series.

Cade Davies is an ex-Army Ranger, teacher, and the new head coach of the high school football team in Keeneston. He barely has time to adjust to all of the changes in his life before he runs into the school's fiery new guidance counselor and a new threat to the peaceful town of Keeneston.

DEA Agent Annie Blake was undercover to bust a major drug ring preying on high school athletes across the South. After her transfer from Miami to Kentucky, Annie looks to make her career by solving the biggest case the DEA has open. What Annie didn't count on was becoming the local gossip. Amid marriage bets placed by the entire town, a priest as a landlord, and a trio of thugs after her, Annie looks to Cade for help in bringing down the drug ring before anyone else is hurt. But can the unflappable Annie deal with the feelings that follow?

A Heart Like His: Intimate Reflections on the Life of David, by Beth Moore. (Still free?)

Many of Beth Moore's popular Christian books are free today on Amazon; see them all at this link.

"Life-changing. Beth Moore breaks open David's life in a soft, yet direct fashion. She looks at every aspect of David's life. She starts with Samuel and Hannah. She goes on to King Saul and how his disobedience cost him the kingdom. She then walks you through David's life as if she were there as a participant. The incredible way that she reaches into heaven and brings down David's story is amazingly breathtaking. This book is one that you will find hard to put down. You will walk away from this book with a greater understanding of David, God, and yourself." -- Amazon reviewer

We all go through times when we feel insignificant or times when we feel certain that we have experienced a degree of failure from which there is no return. This is not a reality we experience alone, but is one that a man after God’s heart experienced as well. From shepherd, to refugee, to king of Israel, David exhibited the purest virtues and the most heinous sinfulness, but through it all his relationship with the Lord continued to grow.

A Heart Like His looks at this bond of mutual love and admiration between a man who was not unlike any of us and the one true God who is all good and all powerful. Beth Moore walks us through an exploration of David’s incredible life, drawing spiritual insights from a man who boldly fulfilled his divine destiny not merely by what he did, but who he loved and served. Bringing lessons from David’s life to bear on your own, this picture of a man who loved and followed God will help you to serve with a heart focused on Him no matter the circumstance.

Available here for the first time in trade paper, this new edition also features an excerpt from Moore’s David: Seeking a Heart Like His Bible study.

In this extended reflection on the life of David, drawn from the accounts in the two books of Samuel and from the Psalms, author and self-described Sunday school teacher Beth Moore translates into plain and direct language the message she finds in this story of a shepherd boy who is chosen as God's own servant. Moore approaches these texts not as a scholar but as a believer. As the inclusion of review questions would suggest, her interest here is less historical and more immediately pragmatic: she wishes to see what David's life has to say to followers of Christ. Her reading is personal, yet supported by a study of the Hebrew and Greek texts--above all, the notes to the book suggest, through a number of Bible dictionaries and concordances. While apparently not well-versed in English poetry (she calls John Dryden a 16th-century philosopher when most would call him a 17th-century poet), the real appeal of the book for many will lie in its approachable style: the writing is direct, personal, and honest. She writes, she tells people, as a "regular" person who says, "I don't make Christ part of my life; He is my life." --Doug Thorpe

Forever His: A Time-Travel Romance (Stolen Brides Series), by Shelly Thacker. (Still free?)

"A keeper! This story was impressively well-written. So well written, that I was so impressed with her writing style and prose. I wish more authors would take the time needed to make their work the best it could possibly be - every sentence, every paragraph. Thacker's writing was so polished and well thought out and laid out you can tell that she took her time, researched, and edited, edited and edited some more - or she had a well-paid darn good editor! I don't think I caught any grammatical, spelling or point of view errors in this story. The outline of her story was tight and believable. The characters were so well developed and I fell in love with both the heroine and hero of the story very early on. I just cannot stress how well put together this book was." -- Amazon reviewer

***WARNING: Explicit content. Recommended for ages 17+***

Silence, by Natasha Preston. (Still free?)

"Emotional and interesting. what a gripping tale of a hearty wrenching story! You figure out fairly quickly that Oakley was sexually assaulted before it is ever actually spelled out for you, but when you get the actual details it still breaks your heart imagining this happening to a loved one! Definitely a good read!" -- Amazon reviewer

For eleven years, Oakley Farrell has been silent. At the age of five, she stopped talking, and no one seems to know why. Refusing to communicate beyond a few physical actions, Oakley remains in her own little world.

Bullied at school, she has just one friend, Cole Benson. Cole stands by her, refusing to believe that she is not perfect the way she is. Over the years, they have developed their own version of a normal friendship. However, will it still work as they start to grow even closer?

When Oakley is forced to face someone from her past, can she hold her secret in any longer?
