Hot Pursuit (A Hostile Operations Team Novel)(#1), by Lynn Raye Harris. (Still free?)

"Readers who love military-style action romances like Roxanne St Claire's Bullet Catchers, Marliss Melton's Navy SEALs, or Amy J Fetcher's Dragon One will love having an intense new series to read." -- Romantic Reads and Such

The last man she ever wanted to see...

Evie Baker's luck just ran out. Thanks to an ex-partner with organized crime ties, she's lost her restaurant, her money, and nearly all her self-respect. Forced to return to her hometown and work as a shampoo girl in her mother's salon, she doesn't think her luck can get any worse.

But then someone starts shooting at her, her sullen baby sister is suddenly missing, and the high school heartthrob who stole her heart--and her virginity--is the only man big enough and bad enough to help.

Might be the only one who can save her...

Special Operations Captain Matt "Richie Rich" Girard can't afford to get involved. He's already on the verge of a court-martial after a Top Secret military operation gone wrong, and he's been ordered to stay out of trouble while he's home for his sister's wedding.

But when Evie's ex-partner turns up dead, staying out of trouble is the last thing on Matt's mind. He failed Evie once before; he can't fail her again. If he's going to protect her from a ruthless killer, and find her sister before time runs out, he'll have to risk his entire future--and both their lives--to do it.

Things are about to get HOT in the bayou!

The One: The Tale of a Lost Romantic in Seoul, by Steve Justice. (Still 0.99?)

Get this literary suspense for 99 cents today!

"The One by Steve Justice is a bittersweet romance novel that borrows as much from Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita (which Justice pays tribute to in the opening chapter) as Philip Roth's The Human Stain. Yet the satire of the aforementioned works is missing here, as the author provides us with a soul-searching introspection delving into the psyche of a forty-something man and a life unfulfilled. The `everyman' Professor is looking for the life-changing event in his life: the new beginning, the unmet friend, the kindred spirit, the fiery romance. Yet the more he gains the more he loses, and this appears to be the inspirational message behind Justice's parable. The author provides a vignette of a man in a mid-life crisis, taking drastic measures to turn his life around for `something better'. His actions lead to a climactic confrontation that is not what romance audiences might expect. Justice's incisive look at self-delusion and self-realization makes this The One worth reading. " -- Amazon reviewer

A middle-aged professor, disillusioned and jaded by a loveless marriage and a stale career, makes the move to South Korea in an attempt to bring excitement into his life. What he finds is more of the same: a never-ending repetition of existence without meaning.

It is only when a woman much younger than himself, one of his own students, engages him intellectually and emotionally that he finally feels alive. Despite the fear of the taboo of a potential relationship, he feels himself drawing closer to this girl who has brought colour into an otherwise stale and grey life.

When this girl is taken away from him, he decides to do as all romantic heroes must: whatever it takes to make her his own.

Officer Jones (JP Warner/Officer Jones), by Derek Ciccone. (Still 2.99?)

Over 250 five-star reviews for this well-written murder mystery!

"Officer Jones" was a great serial killer mystery. The theme is centered on criminal drunk driving. The pace was fast but easy to read, the story simple to follow. The characterizations were well-drawn and I always wanted to read just one more page, then another one and another one. I couldn't seem to put it down!" -- Amazon reviewer

As the fearless international correspondent for GNZ News, JP Warner has always risked his life to beat the competition to the story, and received all the notoriety and riches that comes with it. But an event makes him realize that there's no end to the chase, and the further he runs, the more he loses himself. So he decides to leave the jaded industry, and returns to the idyllic Connecticut town he grew up in, hoping to rediscover the person he once was.

But any chance to find peace shatters when he looks into the eyes of local policeman Kyle Jones. JP sees the same look he's seen in the many fanatics he's covered over the years. And soon finds himself on a collision course with Officer Jones, while also battling the forces within himself, as he races to cover the biggest story of his life.
