Rae of Hope (The Chronicles of Kerrigan), by WJ May. (Still free?)

"I loved Rae's personality as well as all the friends she meets at her new school. Her crush is sexy...and unavailable but I was rooting for Rae every minute! The tatùs are beyond super cool, giving the teens supernatural powers depending on the shape of their marking. They receive this special marking on their 16th birthday. I really enjoyed watching the kids use their powers and learn how to control them. The books is gripping and will keep you turning the pages like me! It's such a fun read with a solid plot and a fantastic cast of characters I fell in love with." -- Amazon reviewer

How hard do you have to shake the family tree to find the truth about the past?

Fifteen year-old Rae Kerrigan never really knew her family's history. Her mother and father died when she was young and it is only when she accepts a scholarship to the prestigious Guilder Boarding School in England that a mysterious family secret is revealed.

Will the sins of the father be the sins of the daughter?

As Rae struggles with new friends, a new school and a star-struck forbidden love, she must also face the ultimate challenge: receive a tattoo on her sixteenth birthday with specific powers that may bind her to an unspeakable darkness. It's up to Rae to undo the dark evil in her family's past and have a ray of hope for her future.

Sultana: A Novel of Moorish Spain, by Lisa J. Yarde. (Still 0.99?)

"I love how clearly the author tells his/her story. There's a lot going on: political intrigue, kidnappings, marriages, complicated family relationships. And yet it's all presented with such skill and verve, in concise, beautifully shaped prose that's simple yet poetic. Much to the author's credit, I believe every word. I'm having a great time reading this." -- Amazon reviewer

Book #1 of the Sultana series. In thirteenth-century Moorish Spain, the realm of Granada is in crisis. The union of Fatima, granddaughter of the Sultan of Granada, with the Sultan's nephew Faraj has fractured the nation. A bitter civil war escalates and endangers both Fatima and Faraj's lives. 

All her life, Fatima has sheltered in lavish palaces where danger has never intruded, until now. A precocious child and the unwitting pawn of her family, she soon learns how her marriage may determine her future and the fate of Granada. 

Her husband Faraj has his own qualms about their union. At a young age, he witnessed the deaths of his parents and discovered how affluence and power offers little protection against indomitable enemies. Guilt and fears plague him. Determined to carve his own destiny, Faraj struggles to regain his lost inheritance and avenge his murdered family. 

Throughout the rugged frontiers of southern Spain, the burgeoning Christian kingdoms in the north and the desert states of North Africa, Fatima and Faraj survive ruthless murderers and intrigues. They unite against common enemies bent on destroying the last Moorish dynasty. While Fatima and Faraj establish a powerful bond, the atmosphere of deceit creates opportunities for mistrust and tests their love.

Bubba and the Dead Woman, by C.L. Bevill. (Still free?)

"This is a fun read, the characters are truly characters and had me chuckling with every turn of the virtual page. Bubba's mom is a hoot and I bet she throws a helluva poker party! I especially enjoyed the antic of Precious, she is always entertaining and gave me insights to the inner workings of my very own Precious." -- Amazon reviewer

Bubba Snoddy is a good old country boy with a big problem. Although he’s personable, handsome, and lives in a historical Southern mansion in a small Texas town, he has just discovered the dead body of a woman to whom he was once engaged to marry. His ex-fiancée was responsible for Bubba being thrown out of the military which in turn caused his shameful return to the tiny town of Pegramville, where everyone is a consummate gossip and no one has any secrets. Sheriff John Headrick believes Bubba killed his ex-fiancée in a fit of vengeful rage. The townsfolk believe that Bubba killed his ex-fiancée in a fit of vengeful rage. Bubba’s own mother believes that Bubba killed his ex-fiancée in a fit of vengeful rage. To top it all off, there are some mighty strange goings-on at the Snoddy Mansion, where ghosts walk the halls rattling chains in the midnight hour, and Bubba’s own sainted mother, Miz Demetrice, runs an illegal gambling ring. Rumors run merrily rampant about Bubba, decadent Snoddy ancestors, missing Civil War gold, a to-die-for sheriff’s deputy with the greenest eyes Bubba’s ever seen, and a Basset Hound named Precious who likes to nip first and ask questions later. Bubba has to find out exactly who did murder his ex-fiancée and quickly before he goes to jail for the crime, or before someone murders him.

Book one in the Bubba series.

License to Date (Better Date than Never), by Susan Hatler. (Still free?)

"Is a fresh, funny and witty story that has left a lasting impression on my heart! Kaitlin has had a rough time with her last romance. It has left her jaded to say the least. But, her friends have her best interest and offer her a wager she can’t turn down. With that wager Kaitlin’s life changes forever! I think one of my favorite parts is the kiss with Paul. The character development is brilliant as Kaitlin has stuff to work through and Paul open ups as well…but he has a secret that could put a major dent in the trust department. But, I am tickled pink with how Paul and Kaitlin work things out. I think that License to Date is Ms. Hatler’s best work yet! It had me falling in love right along with Paul and Kaitlin. A must read sweet romance." -- Amazon reviewer

(Better Date than Never series, Book #6)

After discovering her fiancé cheated on her, Kaitlin is focused on two things: remodeling her new home and avoiding men at all costs. But her friends insist she get back in the driver’s seat and date again. They strike a hard bargain and agree to paint her house if she goes on five dates.

Anxious to get the paint job started, Kaitlin schedules five dates in five days, but her plan falls to pieces when a sexy bartender at her venue-of-choice makes her swoon. Even though he observes each of the dates from afar, she can’t help but want him to come a little closer.

The last person she should fall for is a mysterious bartender with a sinful smile, but Paul makes her want to take risks again. Will the charming man with electric blue eyes break her heart or will he prove to her that a license to date is what makes life worth the drive?
