The Contestant (Crime thriller), by C.J. Lea. (Still 0.99?)

Save $2 today on this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"The Contestant is one of the most distinctive thrillers I've read in a long time, and it has a fresh premise, which is difficult to find in today's thrillers. It has one of the most despicable characters I've encountered in ages, a guy who thoroughly creeps me out. The story sucked me into this dark world and didn't let me go until THE END. A winner, all the way." -- Amazon reviewer

Raymond is a serial killer, brilliant and resourceful. Once a respected behavioral analyst and profiler, a hit-and-run accident five years ago left him confined to a wheelchair, and now he's reduced to scratching out a living with online contests using fake or stolen identities. Blinded to how petty his life has become, his predatory instinct is spent pursuing prizes and selling them online.

A $10 million treasure hunt could be his salvation—the perfect opportunity to change his life, to recoup a standard of living he once enjoyed, and to regain the respect he once garnered in his past profession.

But the moment he registers for the contest, the first email arrives. Someone out there knows him, knows his past, knows details he thought were long buried. Now, there's only one way for Raymond to find his blackmailer and put an end to the threats: Thin out the competition, play the game, and follow the treasure hunt clues.

And this time it's not about the money.

On The Rocks (The Last Call Series Book 1), by Sawyer Bennett. (Still free?)

"There were some seriously steamy moments, some sweet and tender moments, and some laugh out loud silly moments! Sawyer Bennett has quickly become one of my most favorite authors! She really knows how to write a swoon worthy man!" -- Kristin Blakely, The Book Bar

He left to travel the world for fame and glory, but only after spurning Gabby Ward and crushing her young heart. Now Hunter Markham has come back home to the sand and salty breeze of the North Carolina Outer Banks so he can open up Last Call, a beach bar nestled among the dunes of the Atlantic.

Gabby Ward is not happy that Hunter has returned. Bitter over his rebuff years before, she’s content to stay far away from him and his dangerously charming ways.

Gabby’s well-schemed plans to ignore Hunter go up in flames when he presents an offer to her that she simply can’t refuse, throwing them together in a common quest to each reach their goals. Working together day in and day out proves to be problematic for Gabby, who soon realizes that the feelings she had for him are still very much alive. Hunter struggles to reach through to Gabby’s cold heart, all while starting a new career away from his life as a top ranked, professional surfer.

What starts out as a mutual business arrangement soon turns into a passion that neither of them can continue to deny.

Hard choices lay ahead for both of them when Hunter is offered a once in a lifetime opportunity to return to the pro surfing tour.

Choices that could destroy what they have built or take them further than they ever had dared to hope.

One More Tomorrow, by Shirley Martin. (Still 0.99?)

"A wonderful vampire romance. S.A. Martin has done a truly outstanding job of showing the tormented life of a vampire through her character of Galan. I also love the abilities she has bestowed on her vampires, they can enter any door without being invited, they can transport themselves anywhere, to any time period in which they lived and they have amazing strength. The characters are realistically portrayed, the story line is enthralling and the love between the two characters gives us all hope of a soul mate." -- Amazon reviewer

Destined to live in darkness, Galan must defeat the evil Moloch to regain mortality and win the love of the mortal woman, Stephanie.

Review: "An intriguing tale of two lovers destined to be together." Romantic Times

Just Destiny, by Theresa Rizzo. (Still free?)

"This book wraps every plot point in to one. Suspense, romance, friendship, self-reflection, court room drama and so much more . . . The writing by Theresa Rizzo was just so great. I have recently read her first book called "He Belongs To Me" which is another amazing book that doesn't disappoint. All I can say is Theresa knows how to write with emotion, suspense and depth that will leave the reader breathless in anticipation for more. "Just Destiny" is an emotional, roller coaster ride of a book that deserves to be on the top of everyone's "to be read pile"." -- Bookish Blog
