Free and bargain Kindle books! (Friday Mar 4)

Apocalyptic Montessa and Nuclear Lulu: A Tale of Atomic Love, by Mercedes M. Yardley. (Still 0.99?)

"The book is full of a sweet sort of tension that builds as the story unfolds; you just know they are bound for tragedy, but you don't know exactly how or when. There is murder, blood and gore, but also surprising tenderness, love and understanding. It is an unbelievable story told in a believable way. The element of fantasy is woven carefully into the story, adding to the beauty of the tale." -- Amazon Reviewer

Streetwise Romeo and Juliet meets Stephen King’s Firestarter.

New York (Allie's War Early Years Book 1), by JC Andrijeski. (Still free?)

"Fantastic, well written, great plots, enjoyable, and one that you can not put down until you are done. The story line sounded so so, until you started reading. How she got so much action in this book was amazing and it kept you wondering what was going to happen next. This was a free book, and I did not expect much, but I was surprised and I am ordering the next book in the series." -- Amazon Reviewer

"I never liked New York all that much..."

Allie calls it her New York jinx. Already on this trip, obnoxious band groupies hang on her boyfriend, a stalker leaves her cryptic and creepy notes, and she nearly gets arrested watching a Seer get tasered by cops who don't act like cops. One of them, a tall, black-haired guy with strangely colorless eyes, keeps showing up everywhere Allie goes.

But when a religious cult targets Allie for an end of the world ritual, her visit goes from annoying to quite probably fatal.

A prequel novel in the Allie's War series, an alternate history romance featuring a gritty, unique and modern day Earth with star-crossed telekinetic lovers, Allie Taylor and Dehgoies Revik.

Praise for Rook: Allie's War Book One
"Be forewarned, once you get started, you will be hooked on the series!" ~ Alchemy of Scrawl
"[S]uch strong chemistry between Allie and her guide, Revik, that it takes your breath away." ~ Literary R&R
"[F]illed with more backstabbing betrayal, twist and turns than I even thought possible..." ~ I (Heart) Reading

Series Summary
The Allie's War series is a psychic romance set in a unique, gritty version of Earth populated by a second race of psychic beings called Seers. Its heroine, Allie Taylor, was marked "The Bridge" from birth, born to be the leader of the Seer race and the bringer of the next stage in humanity's evolution. Unfortunately, to many Seers, that means the death of just about every human on the planet.

She is helped and hindered, awakened and impeded by her antihero partner, Dehgoies Revik, whose on-again-off-again relationship with the dark beings known as the Dreng may destroy them both.

The series takes place in a modern version of our world at the brink of apocalypse and a dystopian future. It spans centuries along with the lives of its main characters, the Seers, and the wars they fight with themselves and their human allies and enemies.

Queen of the Universe: a romantic comedy, by Geralyn Corcillo. (Still free?)

""Queen of the Universe" was a blast. Lightening-fast pacing with engaging characters in a fun, breezy story. Geralyn Corcillo has a gift for verbal fencing that keeps things lively scene after scene. She also is obviously in her element writing about show biz. The details about putting together a TV pilot and series anchor the story in a setting that feels authentic." -- Amazon Reviewer

TV writer extraordinaire Lola Scott is about to lose her show because she STILL hasn't cast the role of Sam Destry, the dark, brooding bounty hunter. But then HE walks in ... Arlen Black, and he's perfect for the part. One problem, though. He's not an actor there to audition. Nope. He's the handyman Lola hired to renovate her historic Hollywood house.

No problem. Lola gleefully offers him the dream job of a lifetime. No dice—the stoic recluse-in-a-tool-belt wants nothing to do with Lola and her show. But Lola doesn't give up. She goes after Arlen using every trick she can think of, but her Hollywood machinations just bounce right off him.

Why can't she get a bead on this guy?

A scrambling Lola is about to get the ax when Arlen surprises her socks off and signs on to play Sam. She has no idea why he changed his mind, but she doesn't have time to stop and think about it. Not when she has to get him camera-ready, suppress her totally unprofessional attraction to him, and hide from the studio exec, her million-dollar leading lady, and the world at large that her ace-in-the-hole leading man is really just her sexy handyman.

As the show starts to come together, Hollywood gossip sinks its claws into Arlen. When one paparazzi photo threatens to destroy everything he holds dear, Lola finally understands why he upended his life to do the show and save her career. Now she's got to move heaven and Earth not to save the show ... but to save Arlen.

Wolves of the Northern Rift (A Magic & Machinery Novel Book 1), by Jon Messenger. (Still free?)

"As I read the closing words of The Wolves of the Northern Rift, I had a huge smile on my face. It was a great read, and one I enjoyed immensely. At this point, it's among the front runners for my favorite book I've read this year. As far as genre? It's a mixture of steampunk with a very Victorian feel which reminded me a lot of Sherlock Holmes, in that it's more mystery based. " -- Amazon Reviewer

In a world of science, magic is an abomination.

Magic is an abomination. It spread from the Rift, a great chasm hundreds of miles long that nearly split the southern continent in two. The Rift was a portal, a gateway between their world of science and the mythological world of magic.

On the northern continent of Ocker, King Godwin declared that no magical monstrosity would be allowed within their borders. The Royal Inquisitors were formed to investigate reports of mystical occurrences and, should they be found, to destroy them.

Inquisitor Simon Whitlock knows his responsibilities all too well. Along with the apothecary, Luthor Strong, they’ve spent two years inquiring into such reports of magical abominations, though they’ve discovered far more charlatans than true magical creatures. When assigned to investigate Haversham and its reports of werewolves, Simon remains unconvinced that the rumors are true. What he discovers in the frozen little hamlet is that the werewolves are far more real than he believed; yet they’re hardly the most dangerous monster in the city.
