Cassie Scot: ParaNormal Detective, by Christine Amsden. (Still 0.99?)

"Cassie Scot is a fun and interesting take on a magical fantasy world existing within the real. It is a mix of the popular fantasy stories and a solid whodunit. It fits between the children fantasies of JK Rowling and the adult tales of Charlaine Harris -- a bit closer to Sookie than Harry. The plotline is light and the mystery is sound. What makes the story work is the solid world creation Amsden has built." -- Midwest Book Review

Cassie Scot is the ungifted daughter of powerful sorcerers, born between worlds but belonging to neither. At 21, all she wants is to find a place for herself, but earning a living as a private investigator in the shadow of her family’s reputation isn’t easy. When she is pulled into a paranormal investigation, and tempted by a powerful and handsome sorcerer, she will have to decide where she truly belongs.

“When sorcerers call the shots, what’s a girl without powers to do? Get ready for a ripper of a murder mystery full of romance and intrigue, where magic potions bubble, passions spark and vampires are definitely not your friend. Cassie Scot: ParaNormal Detective grabs you by the heart and won’t let go until the very last page. Well-written, immersive and unputdownable. This is urban fantasy at its best. More please!” ~ Kim Falconer, bestselling author of The Spell of Rosette

THE JONAS TRUST DECEPTION (A Thomas Gunn Thriller), by AFN CLARKE. (Still 0.99?)

"These are fast-paced books that you won't want to put down and you won't want them to finish." -- San Francisco Book Review

Thomas Gunn is ex-British Special Forces, with a talent for infiltration and assassination. Skills that a year ago he reluctantly called on, to expose an international conspiracy that led to the murder of his father and death of his best friend. He thought it was all behind him. But a desperate call from his journalist friend Morgan, propels him into an even more sinister plot that threatens global politics and the security of the United States. Racing to follow her cryptic clues, Thomas and his partner Julie are thrust into the deadly path of Mexican drug cartels, corrupt politicians, the CIA, FBI, MI5 and ruthless Wall St brokers. What evil end-game binds these unlikely players together? It appears the shocking truth lies in the painful memories of Thomas's past during covert operations in Afghanistan at the height of the war. A past he had hoped to forget but will not forget him.

Was he used as a pawn in an evil "game" back then? Is he still being "played" even now? Outraged at the thought he does something so unexpected that its boldness and daring will take your breath away! But how high a price will he have to pay for uncovering the truth?

As the son of an MI6 operative, former officer in Britain's elite Parachute Regiment, pilot, race car driver, yachstman and bestselling author of Contact, AFN Clarke brings a wealth of experience to this second book of the Thomas Gunn thriller series. Together with The Orange Moon Affair, the books have been hailed by the San Francisco Book Review as "fast-paced books that you won't want to put down and you won't want them to finish."

England, 1815

The eldest of three sisters, Lady Alexandra Chase has always done what was expected of her. But when the man she's loved since her girlhood returns from a long spell abroad, she quite suddenly finds herself hoping the fine lord her brother has picked for her won't propose. She decides that if he does, she'll quite improperly turn him down--that is, until the man of her hopes and dreams informs her he has no intention of marrying her.

The last time Tristan Nesbitt saw Alexandra, he was a common man with no hope of ever wedding the daughter of a marquess. Seven years later, he's now Lord Hawkridge, which should make him eminently suitable for the woman who long ago captured his heart. But a dreadful scandal has tarnished his name in England--a scandal so horrid that marrying Alexandra would ruin not only her flawless reputation but her whole family. For Alexandra's own good, he must fight his relentless desires and stay far away...
