Free and bargain Kindle books! (Monday Dec 14)

The Last Order, by Angela M Caldwell. (Still 0.99?)

"Caldwell’s writing is phenomenal. Each scene puts the reader in the thick of the action, right along with the main characters. Her writing is intense and fast-paced, more like watching a good movie than reading a book. She knows exactly how to keep her readers entertained and the writing never gets boring or slow. That being said, the book isn’t all battles and action either, and she has the perfect blend of world and character building and action." -- Amazon Reviewer

Turning gypsies into knights, she will inspire a kingdom to rise.

Lana Crewe is a strong, fiercely driven seventeen year old living in a village ruled by fear. With their king and queen both dead, strife and division have taken hold. Ruthlessly attacked by an Order called Talons, Lana’s father is fatally stabbed. Before he dies, he imparts upon Lana a directive to save the statue of Saint Peter, and tells her that the queen yet lives. Now it is up to Lana to unravel the mystery of Saint Peter and bring an end to all of the war by finding the queen.

A medieval tale of hope and mystery, The Last Order takes upper teenage angst and spins it on its head. You’ll be gripping this book as hard as it will be gripping you.

A Christmas in Cornwall: A Regency Christmas Novella, by Tamara Gill. (Still 0.99?)

"Tamara Gill was my introduction to the historical romance genre and now there is no going back for me. She made me fall in love with this sweet, sexy, and at times scandalous novella. William and May share a love in this story that will make you melt. I also love that the female character May is no meek debutant like most of the ladies of her time. Tamara Gill writes a beautifully strong female lead. If your a fan of historical romances than look no further than A Christmas in Cornwall." -- Amazon Reviewer

After two failed seasons in town, May Stanford sees her future no longer with her family, but in a nearby convent where she’ll not be anyone’s financial burden. But before she can embark on her new life, May must complete her dealings with the local smugglers, men who have kept a roof over her family’s head during frugal times. One last Christmas at home and her life would change forever. So when William Scott, the Earl of Grandison arrives and crumbles her perfectly planned future to rubble, May is less than pleased.

William, Lord Grandison works for the Crown, and is determined to catch the nuisance Englishmen who dare smuggle along the Cornwall coast. William has never veered from his pursuit of these men working against the law, that was until he meets May Stanford, the maddening daughter of his host for Christmas. May drives him to distraction and forces him to admit to feelings he has never felt before.

But when May and William discover the crippling truth of each other, their secrets will threaten to tear them apart.

City of Dreams (The Paris Chronicles Book 1), by Harriet Steel. (Still free?)

"‘City of Dreams’ by Harriet Steel is a fine work of historical fiction. The book is impeccably written and edited and brings us right into the world of Paris in the 1860s at the time of the Franco Prussian war. Our heroine, Anna, begins her life in a well-off family, marries a very rich man and then, when he goes bankrupt, enters a very different life where she struggles to survive. Life is difficult, and then war comes. Though there is romance in this, it is not a historical romance as we would normally think of it because there is no one man, rather a series of men. Nevertheless, we do get the feeling that one of these passing beaus is the man for Anna, and since this is the beginning of a series of books, we are left with potential for the future. Anna comes across as a very real character and I soon found myself caring deeply for her. Secondary characters were also well rounded and well rendered" -- Amazon Reviewer

After a whirlwind courtship and marriage to dashing Frenchman Emile Daubigny, Anna, the teenage daughter of a Russian furrier, moves to Paris with her new husband, looking forward to a life of gaiety, love and comfortable affluence. The year is 1864: married life and the social scene in the most fashionable city on earth is everything Anna hoped it would be, but when Emile vanishes without trace and she is evicted, her world crumbles. As war with Prussia looms, Anna and the city she loves must struggle to survive.
This coming of age story explores the themes of friendship, love and the fragility of dreams. Nineteenth century Paris is richly evoked, from the opulent ballrooms of high society to the squalid tenements and harsh streets where the shadow of revolution grows ever darker.

(City of Dreams is the first in a series of novels that will follow the stories of Anna and her descendants in Paris and further afield.)
