Rising, by Holly Kelly. (Still free?)

"Holly Kelly wowed me with her first sentence in chapter one: 'Xanthus could taste the blood of a human in the sea water.' Her heroine Sara intrigued me. A strong twenty-something female, she lived with a huge disability since her birth. She constantly had all these conflicting emotions swimming in her head about herself, her disability, and the doctors who always wanted to fix her. I liked her drive to survive and succeed the most. I found myself relating to Sara, remembering how at one point I wanted to succeed like that, no matter how hard I had to work to pay the bills. I also loved the constant reminder of her insecurities. I think we all have them, and she felt like a real person. I understood her actions." -- Amazon reviewer

In a war between the humans and the inhabitants of the sea... humans will lose. Xanthus Dimitriou -- the most lethal Dagonian to rise from the ocean -- is on a mission to save mankind from annihilation. But first there's one small thing he needs to do -- kill a beautiful young woman in a wheelchair.

Killing her doesn't start out as part of his plan. He entrenches himself deep in the human world. Aligning himself with his enemies, he prepares to send them to Triton to face their punishment. Then Sara Taylor rolls onto the scene. Xanthus knows at once she's a criminal. And her crime? Being born. She's a human/Dagonian half-breed, an abomination. Killing her should be an easy job. All he has to do is break into her apartment, slit her throat, and feed her body to the sharks. Simple, right? Wrong. If only she weren't so beautiful, so innocent, so sweet...

Saving the world may have to wait. It appears Xanthus has a woman to save. But protecting her may cost him his own life.

Deadly Intruder, by Anne Kelsey. (Still free?)

"I have been patiently waiting for this book since the Amazon writing contest in 2009. The story line is intriguing and the writing is taut. Once I cracked this open I did not want to stop reading. Anne Kelsey's character development is amazing. The reality of cyber stalking and identity theft are all too real. This book should be at the top of your "to read" list and by your reading chair soon-with the light on. I hope the sequel is around the corner-- Anne Kelsey is a writer to watch and I look forward to seeing more of her works." -- Amazon reviewer

Once you buy in, there is no out.

Super salesman Brent Darby is living the good life: both personally and professionally. He just won the Rookie of the Year award at the advertising company he works for in Boston, and he is married to beautiful Amanda, the love of his life. After his recent purchases of a new home and a sports car, his life is just about perfect. Then he makes one seemingly innocent decision to play an Internet game.

The website offers a big payoff to the winner of the deadpool game they host, and Brent thinks he has just as good a chance to win as anyone else. After all, the game is all luck. Or is it?

When a fellow player, known only as Intruder, gains access to Brent's personal information, Brent's life is thrown into chaos. A gruesome discovery makes Intruder's goal all too clear. Soon Brent is careening through the shadowy world of cybercrime, identity theft, and murder on a non-stop thrill ride he wants no part of. Will Brent or Intruder make the final move of the game?

Praise for Deadly Intruder:

"This novel moves like a hurricane revealing the dangers of what starts as an innocent little bet. A good read." -- Dennis Foley, author of A Requiem for Crows

"Anne Kelsey's Deadly Intruder is compulsively readable, with characters that will intrude into your psyche and not let you go until you finish the last page. Taut writing, superb pace, and characters you'll root for. Highly recommended." -- Mary Johnson, author of An Unquenchable Thirst

"In Deadly Intruder, Anne Kelsey has given us a delicious serving of intrigue, mystery, romance, and edge-of-your seat excitement. This book sent chills up my spine as I began to see how easily lives can be destroyed or turned upside down by Internet stalking. Deadly Intruder was a book I simply didn't want to put down. Kudos to Anne Kelsey. I will be looking out for more from her." -- Maureen McMahon, author of Shadows in the Mist

Soul Taker, by Karen Michelle Nutt. (Still free?)

"Well-written page turner! I enjoyed this book immensely. It has a great cast of characters with fascinating backstories that set it up perfectly for a series of adventures. It was creepy and believable with a fun storyline that kept me reading. If you're into paranormal, this crime fighting team is a different angle from the usual, and the paranormal details are fun and interesting." -- Amazon reviewer

An exciting, contemporary paranormal story of good versus evil from award-winning, bestselling author Karen Michelle Nutt

No soul is safe...
A vampire from the Grim Sith sept is sucking the souls out of young women from the Boston area, but this sinister crime is far worse than a vampire seeking substance. He's selling the souls to the highest bidder and it seems business is booming.

A vampire, a werewolf, and a Necromancer are a most unlikely team, but Garran, Harrison, and Isabella plan on putting a kink in the dubbed Soul Taker's plans. It's personal now. One of their friends has fallen victim to the Soul Taker's charms, but to stop him from hurting anyone else, their efforts may involve raising the dead.

Family Interrupted, by Linda Barrett. (Still free?)

"Family Interrupted is a heart wrenching story that is a real tear-jerker that takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster ride. You can't help but feel compassion and empathy for the Barnes family and for Sarah Levine, as the anguish and pain they endure over a two year period is palpable and crippling, it simply will pull at your heartstrings. You can't help but yearn for the family to let go of the tragic past and start healing as their story slowly unfolds. The author keeps the reader captivated as they turn the pages until they reach the satisfying conclusion that will leave them with a hint of a smile and completely spent." -- Amazon reviewer

Guilt and Blame.

Shaken by tragedy, the Barnes family has fractured. Mother. Father. Son. Each dealing with the pain separately and alone. Holding fast to guilt and blame. Read or imagined.

Claire, an artist who finally follows her dream and encounters a nightmare. Jack, a home builder who thinks he can fix anything--except what matters most. And Ian, a teenage son to be proud of. Until he moves out. fifty miles away from the darkness at home.

On the verge of divorce when their son's new life goes terribly awry, Claire and Jack are forced to re-examine their lives in order to save their marriage and heal a family that, according to Ian, "has gone to hell."

But can they find the road back?
