The Game, by A.J. Carella. (Still free?)

"Terrific! Don't expect to figure this one out. It just won't happen, and like the darkness you have happened into within this clever story, you are so attached you cannot stop reading. I read it in a matter of hours. Highly recommend to lovers of suspense and dark thrillers." -- Amazon reviewer

This first book in the new romantic suspense series from AJ Carella is a thrilling read.

Tara and Kyle come from completely different backgrounds but fate throws them together.

Kyle is damaged from the loss of his family. A series of bad decisions have left him working for the very criminals he once sought to put away. His heart is frozen and he cares about nothing, least of all himself.

Tara, given away by her mother when she was a child, has never known love.

Thrown together by circumstances, they soon realize that they need each other but are cruelly ripped apart.

Kyle must race against time to save Tara from the clutches of the man who controls her every move and who has kept the most devastating of betrayals until last.

This fast paced thriller takes you on a journey to the dark side of human nature.

Fate brought them together. Can The Game keep them apart?

Path of the Dead (Hungry Ghosts), by Timothy Baker. (Still 2.99?)

"Considering the huge amount of zombie stories and novels published during the last couple of years, it's actually amazing that it's still possible to find interesting novels like Path of the Dead that differ from other zombie novels. Timothy Baker has created a story that's both entertaining and well written. The author uses well-known zombie elements in this novel, but reading about them never feels annoying, because they're used well." -- Amazon reviewer

Nestled on the foot of Tibet’s sacred Seche La Mountain is the village of Dagzê. The normally quiet streets are bustling with the steady stream of arrivals and preparations for the coming Festival of the Medicine King; a time of celebration, healing, and renewal. But a shadow is sweeping the world, a plague of apocalyptic proportions—the dead are rising and devouring the living, and no place is safe where humanity thrives.

As Dagzê burns, overtaken by the hungry undead, five people come together: Lama Tenzin, an elder monk; Gu-lang, the silent warrior nun and Tenzin’s protector; Cheung, a private in The People’s Army, driver and escort of the Lama; ten-year-old Chodren Dawa, witness to his sister’s death and rising; and Dorje Cetan, a Shaolin-trained hermit monk of Seche La and a dreamer of a dark portent. Together they must fight their way out of Dagzê to an abandoned Buddhist hermitage clinging to the mist-shrouded cliffs of Seche La. With the undead following and gathering at Eagle’s Nest gate, they barricade themselves inside their dead-end haven, and are soon forced to battle the beasts without, as well as the ones within.

ARC reviewer T.L. Barrett says of the child named Chodren being one of the protagonists: "...[the boy] allows us a childlike perspective on the world, which amps the horror, the reader’s investment and gives us an unbiased witness perspective of the philosophical differences of the Chinese soldier and the Tibetan holy men (and [the] woman[Gu-lang] and...what a rounded and interesting character she is, however taciturn). The book balances scares, action, Gothic settings — the woods, the desolate Tibetan mountains, and abandoned temple monasteries — with thoughtful philosophical discussions and arguments that drags this novel out of pulp entertainment and into a literary exploration of the world."

PATH OF THE DEAD is the first book in the "Hungry Ghosts" series from Ragnarok Publications. It is Timothy Baker's first full-length novel.

164 pages, with a 4.5-star rating from 13 reviews.

Someone To Believe In (The O'Neils), by Kathryn Shay. (Still free?)

"Intensely emotional! Bailey O'Neil and Senator Clay Wainwright have a real conflict. They've been public enemies for over a decade--ever since he sent her to prison for a year. She's known as The Street Angel for her work with kids in gangs. He's also concerned with youth gangs, but believes Bailey's going about it the wrong way, that she should leave things to the authorities, and that she shows a blatant disregard for her own safety. The conflict doesn't go away just because these two fall in love. On the contrary, it makes their differences more important and painful. They make it in the end, of course--it is a romance, after all--but it's definitely not an easy journey." -- Amazon reviewer

Kathryn Shay creates a world of politics, gangs and her forte--the problems of teenagers. This is the first in the O'Neil Family trilogy!

“SOMEONE TO BELIEVE IN is a wonderfully written, emotional and extraordinary read and truly deserves a five-star rating.” Affaire de Coeur

Bailey O’Neil, aka, the Street Angel, has been the arch enemy of Senator Clay Wainwright since he was a district attorney and she a young, idealistic social worker. He put her in jail for harboring a teen offender and never looked back. Eleven years later, she’s a thorn in his side as an anti-gang specialist trying to get kids out of gangs. While Clay wants to put them in jail, Bailey is determined to help these troubled teenagers make good lives for themselves. But when Bailey and Clay are thrown together on the mayor’s task force, the impossible happens—they’re attracted to each other. Their passion erupts early on, and only grows stronger the further they get into a relationship. When they fall deeply in love, their conflicting views drive a wedge between them. Both the Street Angel and the Senator must find a way to deal with their differences in order to make a life together.
