Pretty Little Liars, by Sara Shepard. (Still free?)

"Debut author Sara Shepard's shamelessly addictive blend of Desperate Housewives and I Know What You Did Last Summer is absolutely delicious. Her infusion of mystery and murder breathes new life into the tired genre of high society chick lit, and will give fans of Gossip Girl and The A-List something new to dig their French-manicured nails into. A cliff-hanging ending will leave readers craving the second title in the planned four-part series." -- Amazon reviewer


I’m still here. And I know everything. –A
The first book in the #1 New York Times bestselling series that inspired the hit ABC Family TV show Pretty Little Liars.
In ultra-trendy Rosewood, Pennsylvania, four beautiful girls are hiding very ugly secrets. High school juniors Spencer, Hanna, Aria and Emily have grown apart since their best friend Alison DiLaurentis went missing three years ago. But now someone is sending them anonymous notes, threatening to reveal their darkest secrets. There’s only one person who knows that much about them, but Ali’s gone…isn’t she?
Full of unexpected twists and shocking revelations, this series opener that inspired the hit TV show is the perfect beginning for fans.
In the exclusive Philadelphia suburb of Rosewood, Alison is the Queen Bee of her elite seventh grade hive. BFs Aria, Hanna, Spencer, and Emily vie for her attention, even as each of them hides a hideous secret only Alison knows. So when Alison goes missing after a slumber party, never to be seen again, each girl is heartbroken, but also a little relieved. Now it is three years later, and though the four girls have grown apart, they are each still hiding something. Artsy Aria is carrying on an affair with one of her teachers, fashionista Hanna shoplifts to accessorize her trendy outfits, blue-blood Spencer is sleeping with her older sister’s boyfriend, while straight-A Emily is trying to ignore her attraction to a new female classmate. When the girls begin receiving threatening text messages and emails that from someone known only as "A," they must confront the fact that against all odds, it appears Alison is back. Could Alison still be alive? And if so, why is she so determined to uncover all their dirty little secrets?

Timeloopers: A Strange Machine (Book One), by Dan Rix. (Still 0.99?)

Save $2 with this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"The day a new series starts is particularly awesome! A whole bunch of new ideas, new what if's, and new characters to love and hate? It's my idea of book heaven. We'll start with what's most important: the science! I was a bit nervous about how Dan would tackle the temporal paradox. Time travel novels are usually riddled with inconsistencies, and short on set up and explanation. I should have had more faith! Similar to his other series (God's Loophole), there is a nice, tight explanation that works well on a small scale. He marries basic principles of computer science and the quantum mechanics interpretation of time travel to solve some basic issues, and keeps self-consistency at the forefront of the reader's mind. I'm excited to see how the series will play out." -- Amazon reviewer

When Seattle’s most elite private school—alma mater of Bill Gates—becomes the controversial recipient of a prototype quantum supercomputer, senior class prankster and genius computer whizz Cory Holland is determined to hack it . . . that is, if he can find the time between crashing parties and making out with his archenemy’s superhot ex, Samantha.

But Cory soon realizes the spooky coffin-sized machine humming away in his school’s basement isn’t a computer at all. Inside the machine, time appears to cycle in endless loops. Food molds in seconds. Cell phones drain in minutes. Most startlingly, it appears possible to step inside at the end of the loop . . . and step out into the past.

But when the machine delivers a cryptic warning that Samantha died in a car crash, his memories of her instantly begin to vanish—leaving only lingering moments of déjà vu. Someone’s been screwing with the past. Now he must do the unthinkable: alter the timeloop to save the life of the girl he loves, only to forget everything about her.

Twist Me (Twist Me #1), by Anna Zaires. (Still 0.99?)

"Wow-awesome book! Different from your typical millionaire romances out there. Great chemistry between the couple. So happy that the second and last book comes out at the end of this month." -- Amazon reviewer

***LIMITED-TIME SALE TO CELEBRATE THE UPCOMING RELEASE OF KEEP ME***

Kidnapped. Taken to a private island.

I never thought this could happen to me. I never imagined one chance meeting on the eve of my eighteenth birthday could change my life so completely.

Now I belong to him. To Julian. To a man who is as ruthless as he is beautiful—a man whose touch makes me burn. A man whose tenderness I find more devastating than his cruelty.

My captor is an enigma. I don’t know who he is or why he took me. There is a darkness inside him—a darkness that scares me even as it draws me in.

My name is Nora Leston, and this is my story.

Bitterwood (Bitterwood Trilogy Book 1), by James Maxey. (Still free?)

"Maxey's world is stunningly imaginative, a landscape both familiar and alien, and packed with thoughtful treats for readers. Skillfully examining themes of faith, martyrdom and heroism, Maxey maintains an unflagging believability even while borrowing some of the most generic elements from science fiction and fantasy. The dragons are wonderfully written, as is the tormented hero; it is almost a shame that the story is so self-contained, as many readers will pine for a whole series of Dragon Age titles." -- Amazon reviewer

Dragons rule the world, united under the powerful dragon king Albekizan. Humans have been subdued for centuries, existing only as slaves, pets, and prey. Yet one man, the mysterious Bitterwood, strikes at dragons from the shadows, fighting a long, lonely war of resistance. When Bitterwood is blamed for the death of Albekizan’s beloved son, Bodiel, the king launches a full scale campaign to rid the world of the legendary dragon-slayer—even if he must kill all of mankind to do so.

Bitterwood, Kindle Edition, has been revised and updated from the original paperback release.

“For the sake of humanity, join in Bitterwood’s revolt.” – Kirkus Reviews

“A grabber from page one, a smart tale of adventure and revenge sprinkled with echoes of our own dangerous times. James Maxey’s world of dragons and humans at war is so solidly and engagingly rendered that I never wanted to leave.” – John Marco

“Bitterwood is an unlikely hero in a rich world, with a rich history that holds many surprises. James Maxey tells his story with a sure hand. Enjoy the journey!” – Carrie Vaughn

"Fine action and cool world building. Anne McCaffrey through a mirror darkly." – E. E. Knight

“A magnificent hero story.” – Orson Scott Card
