Free and bargain Kindle books! (Wednesday Aug 19)

The Solitude Myth, by Bill Lloyd. (Still 0.99?)

"It engages you on every page and moves you along in every chapter. It can be read and be simply called entertaining, or you can see the protagonist's quirks and questions as an insight into existential mysteries. It will have you peeling away layers of your own psyche. All of this with a clarity and simplicity of style." -- Amazon Reviewer

All truth is subjective or so David believes. A New Yorker in his early thirties, he moves to Paris to work for an international aid agency. He enjoys the challenge of his new job and the understated love affair he embarks upon with the quintessential Parisian Colette, but then his carefully scripted story goes awry. After experiencing a bout of forgetfulness he visits Saint-Jude in the south of France for a period of rest and recovery. As he struggles to regain his memories he keeps bumping into people who seem to know him better than he knows himself, including the lovely Celeste who encourages him to confront the deeper implications of his missing memories. She leads him to the point where he must decide what is real and what isn't in a world full of contradictions and illusions.

Brody: The Bang Shift, by Mandy Harbin. (Still free?)

"The chemistry and animal magnetism is sheet scorching and yet, sweet! Yes, sweet! Every woman wants a man like Brody; at least, the Brody that Xan thinks she knows. The story is hot, humorous, suspenseful and very well written." -- Romancing the Book

Brody “Brutus” Jackson isn’t your average small-town mechanic. The shop where he spends his days doubles as the headquarters for the mercenary group he works with. They jokingly call themselves the Bang Shift because the government contracts they take are the less savory ones, and they’re all just shady enough to do what’s necessary to get the jobs done. As far as Brody’s concerned, it’s the perfect arrangement for a man with no memory of his past, and no hope for the future.

Under FBI protection, Alexandria Collins and her son have been in hiding for ten years. When it’s time to move again, her piece of crap car breaks down and the man giving her a tow is the biggest, hottest guy she’s ever seen. She is determined to ignore the need her long-neglected body hungers for. After all, the last man she showed interest in put a gun to her head.

Brody thinks the skittish Xan is sexy as hell, but it’s not her hot body that has him rocked to his core. He knows her from somewhere, and in his line of work, that’s a dangerous thing. Following orders have never been this hard, but when he finds out she’s his next assignment, he will protect her at all costs … even if what she needs protection from most is him.

CROWN'S JEWEL, by Cynthia Toliver. (Still 3.99?)

"One of the best and most engrossing novels I have read in some time-- chock-full of suspense and great story. As chapter followed chapter, I found myself on a pity/hate/love reader-rollercoaster with Crown McGee, the main character. I look forward eagerly to the next in a long line of Ms. Toliver's novels." -- Amazon Reviewer

Crown McGee comes to Colwin County, Texas to claim his estranged father's estate, a thriving rice farm, dilapidated mansion and cemetery. Smitten by tenant Carrie Giddings, Crown vows to have Carrie just as he has claimed his father's land. Crown offers complicity in a murder in exchange for Carrie, but the Giddings flee Colwin County, leaving Carrie's daft sister Jewel in Carrie's place. On the road to love and redemption, Crown faces hard lessons, a daughter Sela, born with his deformity and a wayward brother Jackson bent on claiming the estate.

196 pages, with a 5.0-star rating from 4 reviews.
