Free and bargain Kindle books! (Thursday Dec 11)

Long Gone Man (The Singer Brown Mystery Series Book 1), by Phyllis Smallman. (Still 0.99?)

"What a great character Singer Brown is! The scene is set for a good old fashioned whodunnit, with Singer high on the list of suspects. We're kept guessing right to the end in a well-drawn plot designed to confuse. We even have a denouement worthy of Agatha Christie. The author deftly drip-feeds us Singer's back story as the novel progresses, and she is to be congratulated for creating such a fascinating and engaging character. I can't wait to see where Singer's adventures will take us next!" -- Amazon reviewer

In a thick fog, a ferry docks on Glenphiddie Island and disgorges Singer Brown's decrepit van. The homeless singer is there to exact revenge on the man who destroyed her life but someone has already killed Johnny Vibes. And now the murderer is coming after Singer.

Each of the former members of the band, Vortex, are hiding sins both old and new, secrets worth killing for, but Singer has one ally. Or does she? Johnny Vibes' wife has as much to lose as Singer if she doesn't agree to give Singer an alibi but that doesn't mean Lauren didn't kill her husband.

Hearts in Defiance (Romance in the Rockies Book 2), by Heather Blanton. (Still 2.99?)

"I loved this second book in the series. I could not put it down (had to take my kindle with me everywhere in case I had time to get a few minutes). And....there is nothing better than a reformed rake....oh Charles....what a swoonworthy guy! I adored their story. Looking forward to more thunder and lightening from them if we see another book in this series. Heather is an outstanding writer." -- Amazon reviewer

MEN MAKE MISTAKES. GOD WILL FORGIVE THEM. WILL THEIR WOMEN?

Charles McIntyre built the lawless, godless mining town of Defiance practically with his bare hands … and without any remorse for the lives he destroyed along the way. Then a glimpse of true love, both earthly and heavenly, changed him. The question is, how much? Naomi Miller is a beautiful, decent woman. She says she loves McIntyre, that God does, too, and the past is behind them now. But McIntyre struggles to believe he’s worth saving … worth loving. Unfortunately, the temptations in Defiance only reinforce his doubts.

Billy Page abandoned Hannah Frink when he discovered she was going to have his baby … and now he can’t live with himself. Or without her. Determined to prove his love, he leaves his family and fortune behind and journeys to Defiance. Will Hannah take Billy back or give him what he deserves for the betrayal?

Gritty and realistic, this is not a sweet Christian romance. It’s life in Defiance.

~~ The sequel to the highly acclaimed, best-selling western romance A Lady in Defiance! ~~

The Breeders: (Young Adult Dystopian) (The Breeders Series Book 1), by Katie French. (Still free?)

"Wow, just wow! I was completely enthralled after the first few pages. The author has done an incredible job of capturing the true essence of a lawless society where girls are a rare commodity and worth so much money that they are relentlessly pursued and sold to the Breeders like livestock... and that isn't even the half of it. Throw in roving gangs, corrupt "lawmen" and a society filled with men completely devoid of any normal morals or values and you have one heck of a crazy world to navigate. There are so many situations that you never see coming and, combined with the author's relentless writing style. This is an action packed book." -- Amazon reviewer

“When the Breeders come for ya, there ain't no escape. They strap ya to a bed and all ya hear is the thud of your heart and the cries of your friends as they wheel ya down to hell. Then the doctors come. You squeeze your eyes shut and pray you can forget. But ya never do.”

Sixteen-year-old Riley Meemick is one of the world's last free girls. When Riley was born, her mother escaped the Breeders, the group of doctors using cruel experiments to bolster the dwindling human race. Her parents do everything possible to keep her from their clutches-- moving from one desolate farm after another to escape the Breeders' long reach. The Breeders control everything- the local war lords, the remaining factories, the fuel. They have unchecked power in this lawless society. And they're hunting Riley.

When the local Sheriff abducts the adult members of her family and hands her mother over to the Breeders, Riley and her eight-year-old brother, Ethan, hiding in a shelter, are left to starve. Then Clay arrives, the handsome gunslinger who seems determined to help to make up for past sins. The problem is Clay thinks Riley is a bender-- a genderless mutation, neither male nor female. As Riley's affection for Clay grows she wonders can she trust Clay with her secret and risk her freedom?

The three embark on a journey across the scarred remains of New Mexico-- escaping the Riders who use human sacrifice to appease their Good Mother, various men scrambling for luck, and a deranged lone survivor of a plague. When Riley is forced into the Breeder's hospital, she learns the horrible fate of her mother—a fate she'll share unless she can find a way out.
