The Legend of the Bloodstone (Time Walkers Book 1), by E.B. Brown. (Still free?)

"The strongest aspect is the author's creation of a spunky, sympathetic heroine whose abrupt tumble Alice in Wonderland-style into a perplexing (but somehow familiar) world is humorous and intriguing." -- Amazon reviewer

In 2012, a woman cuts her hand and picks up a strange colored stone -
Suddenly she is staring into the eyes of an angry Powhatan warrior.
And the only town nearby is Jamestown, circa 1622.


Maggie McMillan wakes up one day as a college student, yet ends the day in the 1622. Captured by Winn, a warrior who is torn between his duty to kill her and his desire to keep her, she is thrust into a life she had only read about in history books.

Hunted and feared by both the Powhatan and the English, she struggles to find a way home while Winn plots to keep her there. Maggie fights to survive as she finds herself entangled in the Indian Massacre of 1622, and Winn sees everything he ever believed in shattered by the knowledge she holds.

As they battle against each other and the message she brings from the future, she must decide whether to return to her own time, or to make a life in the past with the man who holds her heart captive.

The Boy who Lit up the Sky (The Two Moons of Rehnor Book 1), by J. Naomi Ay. (Still free?)

"This is an amazing 5 star book. I liked the subtle development of the characters. The world that Senya lives in is fascinating. The other characters generate compassion, evil, humor, curiosity, and such earnestness that you feel that you are a part of their world." -- Amazon reviewer

Lydia Kalila, the Princess Royal of Mishnah, is forced into marriage with the son of her country's mortal enemy for the sole purpose of producing an heir. Duty comes before personal choice for a princess, especially when her country has been at war for more than a thousand years. Lydia's pregnancy removes her brother and new husband from their respective lines of succession, placing her yet unborn infant at the head of both queues. No one is happy about this, especially Lydia who dies during childbirth from wounds caused by the talon-like toenails of her very strange newborn son.

Grief stricken at the loss of his daughter, the Mishnese King hastily sends Senya, his infant grandson off to a decrepit inner city orphanage with the intent to retrieve him much later when things got sorted out. At the orphanage, Senya is protected by the invalid Sister Meri who instantly falls in love with the little fellow. She's not bothered at all by his strange telekinetic and telepathic powers, flickering pupil-less silver eyes, or wicked clawed toenails. The House Father takes a shine to the lad too, and when Senya is six years old, he is summoned to the Father's chamber. The Father ends up in flames, forcing Meri and Senya out into a snow storm running for their lives.

Thus begins the tale of Senya, a prince created to be king of a planet but tossed aside until his twelfth birthday when Lt. Taner, a Royal Guard detective is sent to retrieve him. It is unclear to all whether Senya is the product of something good or something evil, but in either case, it is very apparent that he is something more than just Lydia Kalila's son.

Note to readers: This title contains graphic language, sexual situations, and some violence. It is not intended for children or young teens.

Love Match: A Romantic Comedy, by Claire-Dee Lim. (Still 0.99?)

Save today with this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"I read this fun, funny book in a day. It's funny and sweet and it's also a sly send-up of so called reality television. The story moves quickly and writer has an energetic style. She also knows and loves San Francisco with all its quirks which made the whole thing as fun as a ride on a cable car. It's a romance so you know where it's going, but getting there was a fun-house maze with a lot of twists and turns. Love Match reminded me of the craziness and the dashed hopes as well as the thrills and excitement of being a searching single. I've been looking for a fix of something like Sex in the City since that ended, and this fulfilled my craving." -- Amazon reviewer

Jessica Durrell has it all figured out. As San Francisco’s most successful matchmaker and owner of Love Match, she’s been helping the lovelorn go from “Single to Soul Mate in 30 Days.” Her longtime marriage to the man of her dreams is living proof that she practices what she preaches.

Then out of the blue, disaster strikes. Her world is thrown into chaos and the future of Love Match is now at stake. As Jessica scrambles to save the business, she finds herself making a dicey deal with Hayden Korr—a former rock star on the comeback trail with his own agenda.

Just when it seems that Jessica’s wacky scheme might succeed, her growing attraction to Hayden complicates matters. Worse yet, her nemesis has crawled out of the woodwork to make sure Love Match goes down in flames. Through outrageous obstacles and hilarious twists and turns, our Queen of Hearts is forced to reexamine her views on relationships, romance, and what it really takes to win in the game of love.

233 pages, with a 4.7-star rating from 25 reviews.
