Free and bargain Kindle books! (Friday May 15)

Aberration, by Lisa Regan. (Still 0.99?)

"Aberration is a sophisticated and compelling suspense novel. Just when you think you know what's next, the story whips you around a corner into shocking new territory and you discover nothing is quite what it seems. Lisa Regan has also created a wonderfully original and complex heroine in Kassidy Bishop... someone to root for, fear for, and hope we meet again in another Lisa Regan novel." -- Mark Pryor, author of The Bookseller and The Crypt Thief

FBI analyst Kassidy Bishop is assigned to the “For You” killer’s task force after a series of sadistic murders bearing the same signature arise in different parts of the country.

The homicides are both calculated and savage, occurring in different states, but bearing the same signature: the words “for you” scribbled at each crime scene. The case chills Kassidy, bringing back memories of her own encounter with a violent criminal five years earlier.


Kassidy’s mentor, legendary agent Talia “The Confessor” Crossen knows the task force assignment is Kassidy’s chance to prove to her colleagues that she belongs in the Behavior Analysis Unit. For five years, other FBI agents and profilers scoffed at Kassidy’s appointment to the BAU, believing she was only offered the position in exchange for her silence about the brutal assault that almost killed her.


The stakes rise when the task force links the killer’s signature to Kassidy. As more and more bodies turn up, Kassidy must delve into her past and the mysterious death of her twin sister, which holds the key to uncovering the killer’s identity.


The closer Kassidy comes to finding the killer, the closer she comes to a deadly confrontation that could cost her everything—including her own life.

Double Dare, by Rhonda Nelson. (Still free?)

"If a sexy, fun, fast-paced love story is what you're craving, then this is the one for you. The story is a quick read, but in a good way. The author doesn't skimp on the action or the romance. The chemistry between Lou and Sam wasn't forced. It came naturally and that's always a plus in a romance." -- Amazon reviewer

Vintage Rhonda Nelson! Though Rhonda is known more recently for her sexy, romantic comedies she began her career writing funny, heart-warming romance for Kensington's Precious Gems line. The books were only sold in Wal-Mart and spent less than a month on the shelves. Now, thanks to the wonderful world of digital publishing, they're available again.

Runaway bride Louisa Honeycut is looking for a quick escape when she passes the Double Dare, Inc sign and the slogan "Are you ready for the time of your life?" seems like divine intervention. Sheltered by her overbearing father, Louisa has years of catching up to do and can think of no better person than gorgeous Sam Rawlins to show her. Is she ready for the time of her life? Hell, yes.

Ordinarily unflappable adventure guide Sam Rawlins makes his living showing the wealthy how to have fun, but nothing in his experience could have prepared him for the "adventure" Louisa Honeycut asks for. He might be showing Louisa the time of her life, but the quirky little snack-cake heiress is soon turning Sam's own life upside down...and perversely, he likes the new vantage point.

The Resurrection of Tess Blessing, by Lesley Kagen. (Still 0.99?)

"Kagen deftly illustrates her gift for blending the serious and the funny, the light and the dark. With a touch of magical realism, she once again creates a story that is as hopeful as it is poignant." -- Diane Chamberlain, international bestselling author of Necessary Lies

After she's diagnosed with breast cancer, forty-nine-year-old Tess sets forth on a mission to complete her to-do list before, what she's sure is, her impending death. She needs to make peace with her estranged sister, Birdie, scatter her mother's long-kept ashes, rescue her daughter, Haddie, from the grip of an eating disorder, guide her teenage son, Henry, through a bumpy adolescence, and reignite the spark in her almost thirty-year marriage to her husband, Will. Tess is aided on her quest by narrator, Grace, who lends the story its most brilliant elements: subtle magical realism and deep psychological complexity. Is Grace an imaginary friend, guardian angel, or a part of Tess that knows better than she? The Resurrection of Tess Blessing is by turns poignant, gritty, spiritually uplifting, and hilarious as hell. Lesley Kagen has created an unforgettable, redemptive story about a middle-aged woman with the odds stacked against her, who discovers that in the end, love really does conquer all.

Little God Blues (The Jim Shalabon Playlist Book 1), by Jeffrey M Anderson. (Still free?)

"Mr. Anderson's cast of characters is robust and diverse. The setting is painted very well... if you don't know London at all before this journey, you certainly will after! One of the real pleasures is the back-tracking provided here into some of the music Jim's band made over the years. Added to this is poetry from his Russian father found with the victim, a father who died years before after leaving his family. And this is really just the warm-up of a fine, fine work! I cannot spoil an ending, by providing even a sense of an ending, so I will leave it here and finish by saying I Highly Recommend this read." -- Amazon reviewer

The breakup of his San Francisco rock band is a hard shove that has Jim Shalabon struggling to stay on his feet. What he needs is balance. What he gets is an earthquake. His best friend and former band mate is found dead in a London alley. Unable to make sense of his friend's supposed drug overdose, Jim goes to London and slips into an amateur detective role. With a style and technique that he makes up as he goes along, he works his way into the game, holding his own against dismissive British cops and society lights with secrets to hide. On the way to solving his case he learns more than he ever expected about his dead friend—and even more about himself. 

Little God Blues is a literate and witty mystery that will keep you guessing until the end.
