Free and bargain Kindle books! (Friday Feb 28)

Mindspeak, by Heather Sunseri. (Still free?)

"This author is way under-rated. The book was interesting and well-written for the most part. A lot better than some of the YA books I've read lately. Only time will tell if this series will shine, but the first book was great. I felt like it was a new take on an old idea. This is what I felt like 'Allegiant' should have been - gene manipulation - except the focus stayed on the characters like it should. If this book doesn't get huge soon, I will be surprised." -- Amazon reviewer

She was created for a purpose so revolutionary, someone was willing to kill for it.

Seventeen-year-old Lexi Matthews keeps two secrets from her elite boarding school classmates—she’s the daughter of a famous and controversial geneticist, and she can influence people’s thoughts.

But after new student Jack DeWeese heals her broken arm with an anything-but-simple touch, he forces Lexi to face a new reality—her abilities reach much further than speaking to the minds of others.

After Lexi’s father goes missing and she receives threatening emails, she can’t decide whether to fall into Jack’s arms or run and hide.

As Lexi seeks answers to what she and Jack are, she discovers a truth more unsettling than anything her science books can teach. And letting Jack into her life of secrets is not only a threat to her very existence, but it just might break her heart wide open.

Fathoms of Forgiveness (Sacred Breath, Book 2), by Nadia Scrieva. (Still 0.99?)

"Ms. Scrieva took all the awesomeness from the world of D.M. and turned it up a notch. I swear, there were times that I almost felt like I couldn't breathe as I was reading what was going on, so caught up in the tension and drama." - Claire Middleton

"...showcases Ms. Scrieva's penchant for diving into the psyche of her characters." - Thomas M. Bernal

Meet the brave and fearless Visola; a woman unlike any you've ever encountered. Her wit and humor take her through the darkest of dangers with a smile always on her face--and her smile only grows larger as the odds become more impossible. With no concern for her own safety, Visola dives headfirst into the throes of battle to protect the people and country she loves, even if it means facing her worst enemy--the one man who can get inside her head and break her down like no other: her own husband...

There is no divorce in the undersea kingdom of Adlivun. Marriage is a bond that lasts until death--even if death comes in several centuries, and your spouse happens to become a ruthless, vicious adversary. This is the conflict that General Visola Ramaris faces when she learns that the mighty Vachlan is behind the attacks on her kingdom. She has sworn to protect Adlivun with her life, but long ago, she also swore to love and honor her husband... 

Visola must choose whether she will destroy Vachlan once and for all, or attempt the hardest thing conceivable: communication. After two hundred years of desertion, she knows she can never forgive him. When he threatens the person dearest to her, she must take action. Confronting Vachlan on enemy territory would be nothing short of suicide. She knows that if she falls into his custody, the deranged mercenary would relish torturing her and making her lose her own sanity. 

Princess Aazuria forbids Visola from taking matters into her own hands. She will do anything it takes to protect her friend from the man who wants to crush her. Alas, Visola is a crazy, uncontrollable warrior with the blood of Vikings in her veins. Why would she ever consider doing the safe and predictable thing?

Saving Grace (Safe Havens), by Sandy James. (Still free?)

"Don't miss this one. It is well worth reading. In fact, I think it is one of Sandy's best and that's really saying something. I give it a rating of 5 out of 5." ~ Judith, Book Binge

"I read this book in a day and a half because it was really hard to put down." ~Barb, Night Owl Romance, Reviewer Top Pick!

Grace Riley is on the run--from her past and from her fears. The victim of a violent rape at the hands of a rich politician's son, she must "disappear" to escape his constant attempts to recapture her. Moving from cattle drive to cattle drive as a cook, she avoids her tormentor for nearly twenty years. When she discovers that the brother she gave up for adoption after their mother died in childbirth was orphaned at an early age, she is frantic to verify that he's safe. She tracks him to a cattle ranch in Montana.

Widower Adam Morgan owns the Twin Springs ranch, but finds himself falling into a life of loneliness. Although he enjoys spending time with his grown daughter and the two men he rescued when they were living on the streets, he longs to meet a woman he can love. Living in the Montana territory where men greatly outnumber women makes finding a new wife difficult. Weary of working cattle, he is ready to make some changes in his life.

Grace falls ill on her journey, but she manages to make it to the Twin Springs ranch where her brother is supposed to be living. Adam takes her in, concerned for her health and the reason she's searching for one of his adopted sons. Their chemistry is immediate and intense, but can Grace heal from her past of pain and fear? When her secrets are finally revealed, can Adam forgive her deceptions and learn to love again?

**Contains love scenes and adult language.

On the Street Where You Die (Stanley Bentworth mysteries), by Al Stevens. (Still free?)

"I enjoyed reading this book. Most refreshing part is that the protagonist is not a big, tough guy and he still gets the job done, even when he gets in over his head. Usually I have the ending figured out before the writer finally spells it out. An easy read, not a lot of big words that I needed to look up and written by an American in American English. This is a book written in a current setting, with some technology twists and a small amount of violence and sex that add to the value of the read." -- Amazon reviewer

Stanley Bentworth is not all that tough. Previously a homicide cop, he drank his way out of a job and now runs a one-man private eye agency finding people who don’t want to be found. He doesn’t accept tough-guy assignments, calling himself a “soft-boiled detective,” but a recession is on, and business is off, so when a wealthy financier, formerly a mob enforcer, needs an anonymous blackmailer found in a life and death situation, Stanley seizes the chance to earn a fee.

If he fails, the blackmailer outs his client to the wise guys, in which case the client gets a one-way ticket to the landfill, and Stanley risks becoming an unwilling passenger on that ride.

He knows he must not fail, no small feat given that Stanley Bentworth is not all that tough.
