A Kingdom's Cost, a Historical Novel of Scotland (The Black Douglas Trilogy), by J. R. Tomlin. (Still 0.99?)

"Filled with gripping action sequences and rock-solid historical research, A Kingdom's Cost plunges the reader into the desperate Scottish struggle for freedom." -- Amazon reviewer

(THE BLACK DOUGLAS TRILOGY: BOOK I)

Scotland is occupied; Scottish resistance is crushed. Eighteen-year-old James Douglas can only watch as the Scottish freedom fighter, William Wallace, is hanged, drawn, and quartered. But even under the heel of a brutal English conqueror, the Scots may still have one hope for freedom: the rightful King of the Scots, Robert the Bruce. James swears fealty to the man he believes can lead the fight against English tyranny.

The Bruce is soon a fugitive, king only in name. The woman James loves is captured and imprisoned. Yet James believes their cause is not lost. He blazes a path in blood and violence, cunning and ruthlessness as he leads a guerrilla war to restore Scotland's freedom. James knows if he is captured he will share Wallace's fate, but what he truly fears is that he has become as merciless as the conqueror he fights.

Cold Iron, by D.L. McDermott. (Still 1.99?)


"Every great once in a while, an amazing author emerges with a fresh take on an old fairy tale. In this case, this title is a fresh take on the Fae lore. Cold Iron is a sexually charged paranormal fantasy romance." -- Amazon reviewer

For fans of Jeaniene Frost and Kresley Cole, this full-length novel is the first in D.L. McDermott’s fast-paced, sexy paranormal romance series—available exclusively in ebook!

The Fae, the Good Neighbors, the Fair Folk, the Aes SĂ­dhe, creatures of preternatural beauty and seduction. Archaeologist Beth Carter doesn’t believe in them. She’s always credited her extraordinary ability to identify ancient Celtic sites to hard work and intuition—until she discovers a tomb filled with ancient treasure but missing a body. Her ex-husband, the scholar who stifled her career to advance his own, is unconcerned. Corpses don’t fetch much on the antiquities market. Gold does. Beth knows from past experience that if she isn’t vigilant, Frank will make off with the hoard.

So when a man—tall, broad shouldered, and impossibly handsome—turns up in her bedroom claiming to be the tomb’s inhabitant, one of mythic god-kings of old Ireland, Beth believes it is a ploy cooked up by her ex-husband to scare her away from the excavation.

But Conn is all too real. Ancient, alien, irresistible, the Fae are the stuff of dreams and nightmares, their attentions so addictive their abandoned human lovers wither and die. And this one has fixed his supernatural desire on Beth.

The Opposite of Wild (Contemporary Romance) Book 1 (The Clover Park Series), by Kylie Gilmore. (Still 0.99?)


"I absolutely loved this book! Ryan was dreamy, Liz was repressed, and their interactions are hilariously explosive! The characters feel real and likeable, and this was such a fun read!" -- Amazon reviewer

Unleash the wild woman...?

Ex-cop Ryan O'Hare takes one look at buttoned-up control freak Liz Garner and just itches to loosen the woman up. Not that he's into her. Because a woman like that comes with way too many expectations. Not to mention, she practically works for him, and he didn't hire Liz to watch after his beloved Harley-stealing Gran so he could turn Liz loose in his bed. Still, there's something about her, a hidden wild side, that makes him wonder what it would take.

Liz must be crazy to work for the insensitive, arrogant, horribly...hot man she's avoided for years. Unfortunately, she needs the money and Ryan's grandmother needs a keeper. (Midnight tango lessons and ziplines with Gran, anyone?) Ryan's rare smile and swaggering confidence have Liz torn between throwing her favorite pinot grigio at his head or throwing herself at him. Can this control freak find a way to let loose with the tough, no-strings guy who once broke her heart?

Praise for Kylie Gilmore:

"This book is everything a reader hopes for. Funny. Hot. Sweet."--New York Times Bestselling Author, Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

"The Opposite of Wild found its way into my hands and, to my surprise, I could not put it down."--New York Times Bestselling Author, Michael Ian Black
