True North, by Marie Force. (Still free?)

"I just loved True North. Liana is a world class model. Travis is a resort owner in Liana's home town. They meet when Liana's cousin gets married at Travis' resort. Liana and Travis are both gorgeous people. That is quickly forgotten with Force's characterization and sexy, emotional writing. Liana and Travis are down to earth, honest people that both know that beauty is only skin deep. As we follow their path to happiness, we see their strength of character, their support of each other and their friends and how they handle internal and external conflicts. Force continues to surprise me with the variety of her plots while still keeping the writing voice that I love." -- Amazon reviewer

The first time Travis North lays eyes on Liana McDermott, she’s wearing the most hideous bridesmaid dress he’s ever seen. He doesn't immediately recognize the world-famous model who is attending her cousin Enid's wedding at the country club he owns. Thanks to Enid's shameless matchmaking, Travis and Liana become acquainted and later embark on a two-week fling intended to be free of emotion and entanglement. As Liana's return to work gets closer, however, Travis wonders how he'll ever let her go when the time comes while Liana considers whether he might be her true north. Two high-powered careers, two amazing weeks and a love that comes along just once in a lifetime. Is she ready to give up her career for a different kind of life? Does he want the same things she does? After insisting on an emotionless affair, she can't very well ask him. Or can she?

Man from the Sky, by Danny Wynn. (Still 0.99?)

"An enjoyable page-turner! As someone rapidly approaching 60, I loved that the author used an old man (73) as his lead character. 99.9% of the time, writers avoid the senior citizen except in an occasional minor role. This is not a "hero" based story but yet some of the action seems heroic at times. At its heart, Man From the Sky is a penetrating look at victims of life and how they drove themselves into this category. Man From the Sky is a page turner." -- Amazon reviewer


Would you risk your life for a stranger?
For seventy-three-year-old Jaime, the answer takes him by surprise. Accustomed to a lonely life high up in the mountains on the western coast of Mallorca, his dull routine is suddenly shattered when a man parachutes from a plane and lands nearby. The plane crashes; the man lives.

It’s a drug smuggling operation gone bad. But Stefan, the man from the sky, has escaped with eight kilos of cocaine in a gym bag. Jaime brings Stefan home and is soon entangled in Stefan’s attempts to sell the cocaine and start a new life.

As they dodge Parisian drug dealers and corrupt Mallorcan police, Jaime’s search for excitement and Stefan’s resolve to find stability lead them both down dangerous paths.

Get Clean: A cocaine-fuelled crime fiction novel, by Jams N. Roses. (Still 0.99?)

Save $4 today on this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"This story reads more like a memoir than fiction. It is intense, brutally honest and realistic in portraying the dark side of the drug world with betrayal and murder. The author has done a great job in writing a gritty tale showing the dark and evil world of drug abuse and the lengths that those people will go to for sex, money, and drugs. The talk, the slang, the methods are all spot on, again, seemly more of a authentic snapshot then make-believe." -- Amazon Top 500 Reviewer

Cocaine adventures…

The most tempting of white powders, Cocaine, is everywhere. Young men and women sniff the 'recreational drug' as often as they spark up cigarettes or sip beer. It’s typical of a generation educated by music videos and tabloid newspapers…

I’m Jimmy Walker, a smart young man with a caring family around me. I’d have the world at my feet… if I wasn't addicted to Cocaine.

A change of scenery can be a good thing, but it turns out that moving from suburban England to the south of Spain isn’t the best idea when trying to get clean. The Costa del Sol is Europe’s main point of entry for my favourite poison, Cocaine.

Under the Marbella sun, I’m falling deeper into the darkness of drug addiction. With pockets full of cash and bags full of Cocaine, I’m being led astray by a psychopath named Jason, an Aussie who loves the sort of random violence I’d only ever seen in films.

Getting high is easy. So is hitting rock bottom. But can I Get Clean?

Based on true events - Contains adult content – Sex & Violence – 18+

The Silent Reporter (Hyder Ali #1), by Mobashar Qureshi. (Still free?)

"Engaging mystery/thriller! Qureshi has given us a well thought out mystery/thriller. With likeable characters, especially the shy but undeterred Ali trying to get to the bottom of his professor's death, and the cop Nolan who is alternately hilarious and tragic, the story clips along at a quick pace. A good supporting cast also fleshes out this solid story that twists and turns in subtle and unexpected directions. A very nice read." -- Amazon reviewer

A reporter investigates the suicide of his professor, only to stumble upon a conspiracy that is bigger than he had imagined.

Hyder Ali, a Muslim-American, is working as a reporter for the Daily Times. Eric Freeland, his old professor and mentor, is found hanging inside his home. Freeland's daughter, Jessica, shows up asking for Hyder's help. She believes her father was murdered.

Detective Tom Nolan is assigned the Freeland case. He is an alcoholic who would rather sit in a bar and get drunk than work on the case.

What looks like an apparent suicide soon turns into something more sinister when Hyder, Jessica, and Nolan begin searching for the truth.
