A Song for Julia (Thompson Sisters), by Charles Sheehan-Miles. (Still free?)

"It's not just a romance, but a story about the love of family and friends and the healing energy that that kind of "togetherness" can provide. It's about making your own family. And maybe even about healing and strengthening the bonds of a family that was once thought to be broken." -- Maryse's Book Blog

For one week only, the entire Thompson Sisters series is on sale.

Everyone should have something to rebel against.

Crank Wilson left his South Boston home at sixteen to start a punk band and burn out his rage at the world. Six years later, he's still at odds with his father, a Boston cop, and doesn't ever speak to his mother. The only relationship that really matters is with his younger brother, but watching out for Sean can be a full-time job.

The one thing Crank wants in life is to be left the hell alone to write his music and drive his band to success.

Julia Thompson left a secret behind in Beijing that exploded into scandal in Washington, DC, threatening her father's career and dominating her family's life. Now, in her senior year at Harvard, she's haunted by a voice from her past and refuses to ever lose control of her emotions again, especially when it comes to a guy.

When Julia and Crank meet at an anti-war protest in Washington in the fall of 2002, the connection between them is so powerful it threatens to tear everything apart.

The Wolf at His Door (The Runes Trilogy), by Adrian Lilly. (Still 0.99?)

"The Wolf at His Door features a complex and twisting plot that never loses steam, with relatable and likeable characters, some seriously gruesome deaths and horror scenes, incredibly written suspense, and even some highly erotic scenes." -- Daniel W. Kelly, author of Horny Devils

Twenty-one-year-old Alec Rune is annoyed when his older sister, Lucy, ambushes him with a blind date with her friend, Jared. But Alec is immediately attracted to the intriguing, intelligent young man.

But the past has claws...

The present has teeth...
Investigating a string of missing persons cases leads Detective Carmen Salazar into the dark world of fairy tales and fantasy... and shakes her belief in what is possible or imagined.

And the future is filled with blood...
Alec awakes from a coma with no recollection of the night his twin brother was torn to pieces. As a madman closes in on him and his family, can Alec learn the werewolves' plan before his entire family is destroyed?

This "multi-layered and unpredictabl" (Christine Coretti) novel builds to "an absolutely epic ending" (Anthony Simpson).

In the Shadow of the Earth (The Gods in Hiding), by J.P. Borders. (Still free?)

"...a phenomenally well developed science fiction / paranormal book that bursts with potential ... almost falls of the page with chilling realism..." -- Paul Little, LittleEBookReviews.com

Science meets magic, and the true nature of reality is revealed!

What if reality isn't as rigid as we think it is?
Professor Jim Canter was tormented by memories of his devastating failure as a physicist. The experiment that should have proven his radical, world-changing theory had instead ended in universal accusations of fraud and deceit.

What if the laws of physics are flexible?
Clinging hopelessly to the remnants of his shattered career, he is forced to consider an incredible idea proposed by a mysterious new graduate student. Mika convinces him to try a final experiment, one that could show an unprecedented link between reality and the human mind, opening the door to possibilities beyond anything Jim had ever imagined.

What if science really can explain magic?
The outcome leads them both into a terrifying confrontation with an organization of ancient, undead creatures dedicated to keeping these secrets for themselves, and who may present an even greater threat to all of mankind.

What if the gods actually did exist? What if they still do?
Now they must race against time to find a way to protect themselves from an enemy that cannot be seen or touched, one that has been preparing for untold thousands of years.

With gripping realism and outstanding characterization, In the Shadow of the Earth introduces a darkly fascinating perspective on the nature of humanity and the universe. This science fantasy doesn't just ask the question "what if it could be'" Instead, it asks "what if it already is?"

Kept, by Elle Field. (Still free?)

"Quirky, original chick lit with brilliant characters and a fab heroine. I really enjoyed the author's writing style and loved that the story didn't end up going where I was expecting... Highly recommend this and looking forward to reading more from Ms Field." -- Shalini Boland, Author

'Did she really just say that? I am fifteen again, except the reality is I am experiencing full parental horror, aged twenty-five. I want to die.'

Life hasn't quite worked out how Arielle Lockley imagined it would. Becoming the next Coco Chanel was always her childhood dream, but she's spent the past four years living a dizzying whirl of glitzy parties, luxurious holidays and daily shopping sprees - all paid for by boyfriend Piers - and not doing anything to make her Coco dreams happen.

When the recession hits, it's not just the economy that takes a tumble and Arielle finds herself living back with her parents, on bad terms with Piers, and having a CV that's as welcome as a pair of knock-off Jimmy Choos. And maybe it's the location, but she's also finding unwelcome thoughts of her childhood sweetheart are popping into her head...

What's a girl to do' Can Arielle figure out what it is she now wants to do with her life and move on, or will she be doomed to spend the rest of her life dwelling over her worst mistakes, stuck listening to her parents' embarrassing dinner table talk each night?
