Father Found (The Daddy School), by Judith Arnold. (Still free?)

"Judith Arnold always writes interesting romances with touches of humor that tug at your heart when you least expect it. Jamie and Allison's story fulfills that promise. Sexy and fun, Jamie will steal your heart. And you'll be rooting for Allison to change her mind and give him a shot. Don't miss this first in the series. It's a winner!" -- Amazon reviewer

Winner of the Romantic Times Reviewers Choice Award!

Book One of Judith Arnold’s popular Daddy School series. Jamie McCoy is the ultimate guy: thirty years old, carefree and professionally successful as the writer of a nationally syndicated humor column called “Guy Stuff.” Nine and a half months ago, he spent a week basking on the beach in Eluthera and indulging in a fling with a woman at the resort. Never did he expect to find the unplanned result of that fling—a healthy, wailing baby named Samantha—strapped into a car seat on his back porch, along with a suitcase full of diapers and infant apparel and a note informing Jamie that he’s her father.

Maybe he is and maybe he isn’t. But first things first. He’s never fed a baby or changed a diaper in his life. He doesn’t own a crib or a stroller. In a panic, he phones the nearest hospital, where neonatal nurse Allison Winslow takes his call and tells him about a class she teaches called the Daddy School.

Classes on how to be a dad are exactly what Jamie needs. But when he attends his first class and sees the tall, earnest, amazingly beautiful and even more amazingly competent Allison, he realizes that he might just need more from her than her lectures on how to hold a baby.

Jamie’s efforts to be a father to this precious baby touch Allison. His sense of humor amuses her. His striking good looks turn her on. But how can she trust the sort of guy who’d sleep with a stranger on vacation, without giving a thought to the consequences? How can she give her heart to such a reckless man?

TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE: a Kate Stanton Mystery - Based on the Novella FORBIDDEN, by Marta Tandori. (Still 0.99?)

"Exciting thriller! A very intriguing novel that has a bit of everything- from Nazi experiments to old Hollywood. I enjoyed the extensive details and the seemingly dead end plots leading to a bang up conclusion." -- Amazon reviewer

A young runaway takes refuge in a makeshift shack under the Hollywood Freeway, forcing the autistic woman in it to find milk for her sickly newborn – a search that ultimately ends in tragedy when the woman is run down by a hit-and-run driver after a violent confrontation with several teenagers. When one of those teenagers, seventeen-year-old Karen Devane, is implicated in the woman’s homicide, the tabloids are quick to exploit the tragedy, thanks to Karen’s recent antics as a spoiled Tinseltown “celebrat” riding on the coattails of her famous grandmother, the legendary Kate Stanton. Complicating matters is the dead woman’s daughter, who’s determined that Karen be held accountable for her mother’s death, even after the charges against Karen are dropped. With tensions between Karen and her family near breaking point and the paparazzi relentlessly hounding her every move, Karen makes a startling discovery which finally puts her on the road to redemption – and links the dead woman to her beloved grandmother.

Karen’s discovery raises a host of troubling questions for Kate, forcing her to revisit the horrors of her past in search of answers. But Kate soon realizes that some questions are better left unasked after a seemingly random shooting leaves her granddaughter fighting for her life and Kate scrambling to stay one step ahead of a killer who’s determined to end her life in order to save his own.

In this sweeping murder mystery based on the novella FORBIDDEN, past mistakes are pitted against bittersweet revenge and family secrets as old as Hollywood and Hitler threaten to destroy one family tainted by a poisonous legacy none of them can ever hope to escape.

A Laugh-Out-Loud Cupcakes and Crime Caper

Cupcake-loving croupier Tiffany Black is determined to leave her job at the casino for good. She’s one small step away from acquiring her Private Investigator license, and has her eye on the prize.

Accepting her first real case – investigating the murder of casino-mogul Ethan Becker – should be exciting. Instead, things spiral out of control and Tiffany finds herself in over her head, as she confronts secretive suspects, corrupt casino henchmen and her mysterious, ex-Special Forces bodyguard.

Tiffany’s poker-hustling Nanna and pushy parents want her to find a nice man and settle down, but Tiffany just wants to track down the real murderer before he finds her first…

Married To A Vegan: Is It For Better Or For Worse When A Spouse Embraces Healthy Living And A Plant-Based Low-Fat Diet?, by Caren Albers. (Still 2.99?)

"Loved it! As a fairly new vegan who is married to a carnivore, I found this book to be a short and sweet look at my lifestyle from the other point of view. I found that I have a lot in common with her husband, and also with her as she reacts to the changes in him. The author has a warm conversational style and a great sense of humor, starting with the eye catching cover!" -- Amazon reviewer

In her wedding vows, she promised “for better or for worse.” She also promised “to obey” but that wasn’t likely to happen. Her “for worse” arrived when her husband of thirty-plus years retired from working and adopted a healthy lifestyle, that included eating a strict, plant based, low-fat, vegan diet.

The “for better or worse” clause in their wedding vows was about to get tested.

Caren knew of Dean Ornish, a Harvard trained physician, whose research proved a low-fat, vegetarian diet paired with healthy lifestyle changes could actually reverse the effects of disease. She’d seen former president Bill Clinton interviewed on Dr. Sanjay Gupta Reports: The Last Heart Attack touting the health benefits of his conversion to a whole food, plant-based diet. But when her husband of thirty-plus years decided to try Dr. Neal Barnard’s 21- day weight loss kickstart (a low-fat, vegan diet), a part of her wanted to kickstart him to the curb.

Suffering for years with painful gout flares, high cholesterol, and elevated blood pressure, he was determined to turn his life around and get healthy, apparently, whether she liked it or not.

This book offers insights written from three perspectives. MY STORY – shares the humorous tale of how his conversion took their marriage from magic to mayhem. HIS STORY – offers the scientific reasons to embrace a plant based diet and his own amazing results. OUR STORY – shows the evolution of a couple finding their way together in a new world.

Although not a vegan cookbook, several delicious recipes are included that will delight vegan lovers, leaners, the vegan curious, or just about anyone. You’ll laugh, and learn new ways to live a healthier, happier, life!

“When someone decides to make the lifestyle change and take on a vegan diet, their spouse inevitably comes along for the ride. Married to a Vegan tells the story of one wife’s experience as her husband made the switch and took control of his health. As you will see, it becomes a positive, powerful experience for both of them. I am honored to have played a role in inspiring this story, and wish all the best to Caren and her husband, as well as any others who pursue a plant-based diet. For those who do, a happier, healthier future is in store.” – NEAL BARNARD, M.D., President, Physicans Committee for Responsible Medicine, and New York Times-bestselling author of 21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart.

Married to a Vegan is for anyone who likes to laugh as they learn new ways to live a healthier, happier life.
