The Sometime Bride, by Ginny Baird. (Still free?)

"I loved this sweet story about two people that meet at exactly the right time in their lives. I did feel that the ending was maybe a little bit rushed but the epilogue wrapped the story up nicely." -- Amazon reviewer

A jilted bride and a ditched bachelor cut a "fake fiancé" deal.

THE SOMETIME BRIDE
Third time's the charm?

Successful financier Carrie St. John has endured all the romantic disasters she thinks she can in a lifetime. That is, until her fiancé jilts her the weekend of her bridal shower. Carrie can't show up unaccompanied again and admit to her family she's a failure. When Carrie meets Mike Davis at an historic country inn, the recently ditched hottie offers to help fill the bill. But, at what price?

Mike Davis was finally going to prove his old high school buddies wrong. Voted "most likely to remain a bachelor" in his prestigious prep school's class, he was looking forward to ushering in his fiancée at his upcoming reunion. Suddenly empty-handed, he's got a new ploy in mind involving the ultra sexy and accomplished Carrie. But Mike doesn't bank on giving up his heart in the bargain. Neither does Carrie, who is soon to learn there are things that even money can't buy...

THE SOMETIME BRIDE...
Carrie didn't know if the music was still playing, or if it was merely the pulse of her heart that was lending rhythm to her feet. All she knew was that she felt protected, sheltered, and loved. Wholly and unconditionally drawn straight into Mike's warmth. They couldn't have been more connected had they been in bed together. Or maybe they were, and she was dreaming.

Mike reached up and stroked her hair, causing her to melt into him another inch. He'd never peel her off now. Carrie couldn't even say where Mike ended and she began. The only thing she knew for certain was that she never wanted this feeling to stop.

A short contemporary romance with mild steam, approximately 50,000 words.

Before you judge me try hard to love me, by Subina Giuletti. (Still free?)

Michael Jackson fan? This novelized biography is a tribute translated from the original German edition.

"Jackson fans will go deep into this book. It reflects Jackson's personality, and the beauty of his innermost soul in a most profound and spiritual way. It was often painful to read because I felt I was witness to his innermost being, which experienced such pain. The ending gave me great resolution, however. It is difficult to know where to draw the line between fact and fiction -- but that's just fine with me; it was a very different kind of book about Michael's life and what he likely experienced on a deeply personal level." -- Amazon reviewer

Michael Jackson—a myth, a legend, a mystery—his person and his music still hold us under his spell. Why? Who was he?
 

That is just what the protagonist Chirelle wants to find out. She meets Jackson by chance, knows next to nothing about him except what the tabloid press has written about him. Spiritual talks develop between her and Michael, in which he tells about his life from his perspective. So on the one hand, this book is fiction—as regards to the fictional protagonist— on the other hand it conveys deep truth, because the facts that are reported about Michael Jackson were researched and provided by sources who knew him well personally.
 

This is an emotional biography of Michael Jackson, gripping, thrilling, moving—told as a novel, told in a way that allows us to come close to this gifted artist and philanthropist in a compassionate and understanding way, and which illuminates his life, his tragedies, his suffering, and his love. A thought-provoking book, a book that changes perspectives.
 

Walk in Michael Jackson's shoes for a while, try to understand, form your own opinion.
Michael Jackson—a unique life, a unique career, a unique destiny.

Silicon Man, by William Massa. (Still 0.99?)

Save $2 today on this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"Filled with interesting ideas and twists, the story was action packed throughout, but it still took the time to ask very profound questions and give us layered, sympathetic characters, both human and synthetic, to care about. While likely to draw comparisons to Blade Runner like I have, it is its own story and a rousing one at that." -- Amazon reviewer

A global pandemic has cut the human population in half. An android workforce fills the void left by the devastation. But some of the AIs have grown tired of being slaves. Some want freedom. An underground movement of runaways has sprung up and wages a shadow war with a simple objective -- equal rights for artificial people.

Enter Commander Cole Marsalis, head of the AI-TAC first response team trained to deal with the rogue robots. Now he has been tasked with the ultimate undercover mission - infiltrate the android underground. But to do so, he will have to become that which he hates the most...

A machine! 


"SILICON MAN is an intelligent techno-thriller where the line between man and machine has never been more unclear." Nicholas Sansbury Smith, best-selling author of ORBS

"...The story was fascinating, and there's a great blend of science fiction and
action." - Darren Wearmouth, best-selling author of First Activation

LUSH (a YA Dystopian novel), by S.L. Baum. (Still free?)

"Lush is the latest book by S.L. Baum and it is the story of a girl just about to graduate from school, or Training Tech as it is called in Concord. So what makes this book different from any other high school story? Well in Concord people are expected to blindly follow the leaders and never, ever question what they decide is best for society. Now is the time for them to be branded as citizens of Concord and to find out what their role will be in society. Lush kept me engaged from the moment I read the first chapter. It is not a dark book but it certainly gives you a lot to think about in terms of how much power and authority should a society give to their leaders in order to secure a "peaceful" society." -- Amazon reviewer

Bluebell has spent the last twelve years of her life at Training Tech, the government-run boarding school all children are required to attend. Now that she's seventeen she is fully prepared for Incorporation; a time when females and males are allowed to mingle again, for the first time since they were toddlers. It is also the day she must endure Citizen Branding - the mandatory searing of a mark into the flesh of the left wrist of all new Citizens. O for fertile, X for infertile. The fate of every Citizen, male or female, is determined by the results.

Bluebell knows that a Citizen's duty is to live for the glory of Concord, just as she was taught. But the frantic dreams and hazy memories that haunt her make her different, and the questions she cannot deny threaten to turn her world upside down.

LUSH is the first novel in the LUSH Trilogy... as the beginning novel, it sets you up in the LUSH world and asks a lot of questions; many that are not immediately answered. The story continues in HUSH, and concludes with CRUSH.

Also by S.L. Baum - The Immortal Ones series - YA Paranormal
The first novel - A Chance for Charity (The Immortal Ones) - is a FREE download!

194 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 48 reviews.
