For every woman who wonders if she chose the right career…

In Love and Other Subjects Carolyn Jenkins strives for two things—to be the greatest teacher ever and to find true love. She’s as skilled at both as an infant trying to eat with a fork. Carolyn’s suburban upbringing and genuine compassion for people who don’t fit effortlessly into society are no match for weapon-wielding, struggling students, drug-using colleagues, and a wicked principal.

Meanwhile, her budding relationship with a mystery man is thwarted by his gaggle of eccentric sisters. Carolyn depends on her friends to get her through the hard times, but with poverty-stricken children at her feet and a wealthy man at her side, she must define who she is. The reality of life after college can be daunting, the road to full-fledged adulthood long and unscripted. Can Carolyn take control and craft the life she’s always wanted?

Raoul (The Angel of Music Book 1), by C. David Stephens. (Still 0.99?)

"The story is extremely well written in that suspense is maintained throughout, plus both expected and quite unexpected events occur. This is well worth your reading, and will also have you in tears of joy, as well as sadness. Truly delightful." -- Amazon reviewer

Christine Daaé travels with her widowed father to Los Angeles where he hopes to enroll her in a music conservatory. Homeless and destitute, they work as street performers to earn money for food.

Christine is happier than she has been in years, but after tragedy strikes, she has only hours, assisted by Raoul, to prepare for the most important audition of her life. All seems lost until she is visited by The Angel of Music.

The Angel of Music series is a current-day retelling of the novel The Phantom of the Opera, by Gaston Leroux.

Five (Maor series Book 1), by Caroline Greyling. (Still free?)

"Five by Caroline Greyling was a fabulous surprise read for me! Ms. Greyling gives us an intelligent heroine whose POV is well told and easy to empathize with. Shaylee has a good head on her shoulders and only her lack of understanding and the loss of control in her life seem to move her to do the exact opposite of what she is told. With well-crafted scenes and a magical stroke of her pen, Ms. Greyling has built a world of fantasy that feels real without use of clichés and overdone angst! After this sturdy foundation and start to the Maor series, I’m definitely looking forward to the next installment of this fast-paced, intense and detailed fantasy!" -- Amazon reviewer

‘Magical’ is the only word that can describe the moss-covered trunks and exposed roots; the dark, rich earth; the rays of sunshine glittering with dust particles; the unearthly swirls of mist tangling through the leaves and between the branches. It’s easy to believe in fairies from this vantage point.

At sixteen, all Shaylee Greene wants is to become a dancer and her biggest problems in life are her over-protective parents and a strange recurring dream she’s been having most of her life. Then she wakes up on her seventeenth birthday and discovers that she has been marked.
Ripped from her beloved South Africa, home for most of her life, Shaylee is sent, without explanation, to a tiny town in the Forest of Dean, England, to live with her grandmother, whom she has not seen since age seven. Here, Shaylee learns that she is not who she thought she was.
Assigned one protector and promised to another, she must come to terms with her unexpected attraction for both boys, learn about her fantastical heritage, uncover some harsh truths about her past and fight to survive in this new world fraught with dangers she never knew existed.

Unholy Dimensions, by Jeffrey Thomas. (Still 0.99?)

"This is one the best collections of Mythos tales ever written. Jeffrey Thomas's uses HPL's Mythos and combines it with Derleth's Elder Gods and it mixes very well indeed. He does even better than Derleth himself did in The Trail Of Cthulhu. Every one out there who is a fan of HPL and The Mythos: I would suggest you pick up a copy of this and enjoy. Fiction like this comes along once in a while and it is something you will enjoy a great deal." -- Amazon reviewer

"Unholy Dimensions: Lovecraftian Tales" collects 27 eerie short stories inspired by the writing of H. P. Lovecraft, creator of the Cthulhu Mythos, but told through the unique imagination of Jeffrey Thomas -- acclaimed author of "Punktown," "Deadstock," "Blue War," and "Monstrocity." Stories include "The Bones of the Old Ones," "The House on the Plain," "The Cellar Gods," "The Boarded Window," and "Book Worm."

301 pages, with a 4.8-star rating from 14 reviews.
