Free and bargain Kindle books! (Monday Aug 10)

Come Back, by Melissa Maygrove. (Still 0.99?)

"Maygrove demonstrates mastery rarely seen in a debut novel. The book becomes an experience for readers—almost as if we’re there, struggling on the Gila Trail alongside the characters. It’s obvious the author spent time studying this period. Her steamier scenes are handled with great care—blending romance with realism. Becca and Seth grew to care for each other as friends before lovers, and that adds a great deal of depth to their interactions. They learn to face danger and hardship as a team." -- Amazon reviewer

Left behind by everyone she loves...
Rebecca Garvey had the promise of a California future dreams are made of, until the wagon train her family was traveling with left her behind. Now she’s slowly dying in the wilderness, abandoned and stripped of her self-worth. Once the shock of her desertion turns to embittered despair, she doesn’t want to be found. Then a handsome stranger challenges her convictions and changes her mind.

Headed for Texas, chased by the demons of his past...
Seth Emerson knows exactly what he wants. Working to save for a cattle ranch of his own keeps him busy and keeps his pain buried. Rescuing a stubborn woman from the hills of New Mexico Territory isn’t part of his plan—but she’s exactly what he needs.

Making greater sacrifices than either of them could foresee...
Seth and Rebecca set off on a risky journey and a quest for truth, each healing the other’s love-starved soul along the way. Will they give in to their growing attraction? Or will they honor their commitments when Seth returns Rebecca to civilization... and her betrothed?

Get on Board Little Children (Children in Hiding Book 1), by Victoria Randall. (Still 0.99?)

Save today with this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"Get on Board Little Children follows Sophie, a kindergarten teacher who becomes pregnant illegally, and is forced to make hard decisions about her unborn child. The book is not only a fast-paced adventure story, but it is a compelling look at the potential dystopian future where individual freedoms have been taken away under the guise of protecting the greater society. I found the book to be a quick, engaging read. Sophie is easy to sympathize with, and there are enough quirky characters to keep the story from stalling." -- Amazon reviewer

What if you needed a license to have a baby?
In a future marked by high-tech surveillance, in which unlicensed pregnancy is a felony, Sophie faces a tough decision: should she submit to the state's harsh demands, or face imprisonment and loss of her child to the education/labor camps, or go on the run, relying on the conductors of the revived Underground Railway. 


Not sure who she can trust, Sophie faces hard decisions. She needs to make the right choices and make them fast. If she hesitates she risks the loss of everything she values most. Fast-paced dystopian thriller, Get on Board Little Children takes the heroine from the drone-watched streets of Seattle to the dangerous Tijuana border, while exploring a future that may be closer than we imagine. Recipient of an AIA Seal of Excellence in independent fiction.

Surface Tension (Seychelle Sullivan Suspense Book 1), by Christine Kling. (Still free?)

"Christine Kling proves in her first outing that she is a writer to be reckoned with. Not only does she have an apparent natural talent at storytelling, but can create memorable, yet, realistic characterizations. SURFACE TENSION is a character driven regional mystery in the same vein as the hard-boiled female protagonists of Marcia Muller, Sue Grafton or Sara Paretsky. It is obvious Ms. Kling knows about boats in that they are major players in this book. Impressive debut." -- Amazon reviewer

SURFACE TENSION is the first in this four-book suspense series featuring Florida tug and salvage captain Seychelle Sullivan. Working as she does in a man's world, Seychelle has to work twice as hard just to compete. Some have even called her reckless. In her view, she's just doing her job, salvaging boats and people's lives.

Years ago Seychelle Sullivan had the chance to save a person’s life. But on that summer night in Florida, lost in a world of teenage resentment and loneliness, Seychelle was not able to feel any pain but her own. Today Seychelle captains her father’s forty-six-foot salvage boat out of Fort Lauderdale’s New River. But she’s never escaped that one moment when she could have made a difference and didn’t.

On a steamy Florida morning Seychelle is answering a Mayday call launched from the five-million-dollar Broward yacht called Top Ten. Racing her fiercest competitor for salvage rights, Seychelle has a personal stake in this rescue: Her former lover, Neal Garrett, is the yacht’s hired skipper. But being the first to reach Top Ten leads to a bloody payday. A beautiful woman has been stabbed to death onboard. And Garrett is nowhere to be found.

While the police treat her as the prime suspect, Seychelle begins to unravel a tangled plot centered on a strip club where “all the girls are tens on top.” Seychelle is connecting human predators with innocent victims, and a mystery on land with a mystery buried deep beneath the sea. Now, to find out what really happened to Neal Garrett, Seychelle must retrace his last steps, through two murders and a horrific crime wave, to a final confrontation with someone who may want to kill her . . . or be her salvation.

Loose Ends: A California Corwin P. I. Mystery (California Corwin P. I. Mystery Series), by D. D. Vandyke. (Still free?)

"Loose Ends was a great read, if you're looking for a solid mystery this is a book worth your time. I was hooked by the story from the very beginning and I barely put it down until I finished it." -- Amazon reviewer

"Loose Ends was a great read, if you're looking for a solid mystery this is a book worth your time. I was hooked by the story from the very beginning and I barely put it down until I finished it." - Melissa V.

When a young girl is kidnapped, street-smart but damaged San Francisco ex-cop California "Cal" Corwin is engaged to find and rescue her before murder raises the stakes. As a straightforward case takes unexpected twists, Cal must quell a growing fear that an anguished mother may never see her child again. With a shadowy crime lord lurking behind every unexpected clue, Cal struggles to tie up loose ends before evil claims its next victim.

Loose Ends is the first book in the Cal Corwin P. I. mystery series from D. D. VanDyke, though the books can be read in any order. Set against the rich backdrop of the San Francisco Bay Area, Cal Corwin novels brim with intrigue and fully fleshed characters from cops and criminals to hit men, oddball family and unexpected allies.
