Sex in the Title - a Comedy about Dating, Sex, and Romance in NYC (back when phones weren't so smart), by Zack Love. (Still 0.99?)

Save $3 on this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"Hilarity in the city! Was looking for a light romantic comedy and saw this book in the new releases. Definitely gives you the male perspective, but not in a way that's disrespectful to women. And it will have you laughing. I snuck in some reading at work and at one point burst into hysterical laughter and my officemate gave me this look like i'd lost my mind. I had just read the scene where Heeb tries modeling for a painting class. It's one of the funniest things I've read in a really long time. Anyway, I HIGHLY recommend this book -- to men and women, single and married. It's just a really entertaining read." -- Amazon reviewer

New York City, May 2000. The Internet bubble has burst and Evan, a computer programmer, is fired with an email from his boss. The next day, his girlfriend dumps him, also via email. Afraid to check any more emails, Evan desperately seeks a rebound romance but the catastrophes that ensue go from bad to hilariously worse.

Fortunately, Evan meets Sammy -- someone whose legendary disasters with females eclipse even his own. To reverse their fortunes, they recruit their friends -- Trevor, Yi, and Carlos -- to form a group of five guys who take on Manhattan in pursuit of dates, sex, and adventure.

When Evan, a closet writer, falls desperately in love with a Hollywood starlet, he schemes to meet her by writing a novel that will sweep her off her feet. Sammy knows nothing about publishing but is confident of one thing: Evan's book should have the word "sex" in the title.

With musings about life, relationships, and human psychology, this quintessential New York story about the search for happiness follows five men on their comical paths to trouble, self-discovery, and love.

Pentecost. An ARKANE Thriller (Book 1), by J.F. Penn. (Still free?)

"Great thriller! This book has elements that will appeal to all thriller fans - there's a bit of Indiana Jones, a bit of Wilbur Smith, a bit of Dan Brown and a lot of Joanna Penn and I have no hesitation in recommending it. It's a rollicking good read and a cut above a lot of stuff out there. Penn tells us there are more Morgan Sierra books on the horizon and I'm glad. If she's started out this strong, I'm excited to see where she goes next." -- Amazon reviewer

A power kept secret for 2000 years. A woman who stands to lose everything.

** An Amazon Bestselling Book in Action/Adventure; International Mystery and Crime from
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author J.F.Penn **

India. When a nun is burned alive on the sacred ghats of Varanasi, and the stone she carried is stolen, an international hunt is triggered for the relics of the early church.

Forged in the fire and blood of martyrs, the Pentecost stones have been handed down through generations of Keepers who kept their power and locations secret.

Until now.

The Keepers are being murdered, the stones stolen by those who would use them for evil in a world transformed by religious fundamentalism.

Oxford University psychologist Morgan Sierra is forced into the search when her sister and niece are held hostage. She is helped by Jake Timber from the mysterious ARKANE, a British government agency specializing in paranormal and religious experience. Morgan must risk her own life to save her family, but will she ultimately be betrayed?

From ancient Christian sites in Spain, Italy and Israel to the far reaches of Iran and Tunisia, Morgan and Jake must track down the stones through the myths of the early church in a race against time before a new Pentecost is summoned, this time powered by the fires of evil.

The first in the ARKANE series, PENTECOST is a fast-paced, action-packed thriller that explores the edges of faith against a backdrop of early Christian history, archaeology and psychology.

The Last Call (The Bill Travis Mysteries), by George Wier. (Still free?)

"Avid readers are always searching for series books that have fast action, intriguing characters, and a plot that pulls you in. In George Wier's first novel in a 21 book series he accomplishes all of this and then some." -- Amazon reviewer

THE LAST CALL starts with a protagonist on the edge of an impending midlife crisis. Add a blond and an old friend with a fetish for high explosives, and you have the kickoff of a first rate crime novel. George Wier writes with wit, verve, and a gut-bucket
knowledge of Texas and those who people its quirky underside. This book does not disappoint. -- Milton T. Burton, author of Nights of the Red Moon and The Rogue's Game.

Bill Travis, an unmarried, unattached investment counselor rapidly approaching his fortieth birthday, conceives that he may not live the most exciting of lives, yet Julie Simmons, his first appointment that Monday, is deeply in trouble. She has taken a North Texas quarter horse racer and liquor baron named Archie Carpin--the last of a dynasty of criminals from the 1920's--for a ride and cleaned him out of a neat two million bucks. And thus begins the adventure of Bill's life.

Ensues a chase north across Texas to recover the money and shake the pursuit of a couple of rednecks with a penchant for rifles and rigged explosives. Yet, through all this action the compelling tale of yet another mystery -- an 80-year old missing persons case -- begins to unravel.

Eleven Days: An Unexpected Love (Days Trilogy Book 1), by Lora Lindy. (Still free?)

"If you need a trilogy that will keep you hanging, this is it. I can't say too much except that when I finished the third book, I literally felt like friends had left my home! Her characters just get into your soul and you care so much about what happens. Everyone should experience a love like Mike and Lana. Do yourself a favor and read all three books, you are in for a treat. I can't wait for her next books." -- Amazon reviewer

After the death of her beloved cousin, Lana Andrews has to get away to be alone, to grieve. She rents a quaint little beach house in Plymouth MA. Little does she know she would meet that one special love, an unexpected love. That one true love is Mike Ramsey, and he's a U.S. Marshal and the beach house owner.

As their love grows, so do their troubles. Someone is stalking Lana, and Mike has to figure out who it is before the stalker gets her. Not only does he have to protect her, he must find the connection between Lana and the stalker before it's too late. They soon find out this man desperately wants Lana, and he'll go through any lengths for that to happen. Mike's team find out how desperate this man is when he starts murdering innocent people.

Being a U.S. Marshal for years, he knows how to protect people. This time was different. This time, the victim is someone he deeply loves. No matter what, he will do what it takes to protect his beautiful Lana. Once he finds out the name of the stalker...he is not so sure he can.
