Free today!

Star Shroud (Ascension Series Book 1), by Ken Lozito. (Still free?)

"To keep it simple, I truly enjoyed this novel. Although I read scifi novels for leisure, most usually leave me bored or dismayed by endless technical trivia, never-ending battle tactics, and the like. This novel is distinctly human in its story, and its details were not beyond the realm of possibility. I found something very hopeful in the telling of this tale even as it weaves together the brighter and darker elements of human nature against a backdrop of space exploration and alien contact. I enjoyed the story to its conclusion, and I am looking forward to the next book in the series." -- Amazon Reviewer

In the Presence of Enemies, by William J. Coughlin. (Still 0.99?)

"William Coughlin's style is deceptively plain and unadorned. Nevertheless, he creates full-fledged, believable and interesting characters about whom i cared. But the thing that sets this novel apart is his sense of place. the story is set in Michigan. Coughlin describes the attractive, vibrant downtown business district, the exciting restaurants, and the intriguing waterway topography of Detroit. The synergy of character, plot, and place remain intact throughout." -- Amazon Reviewer


In the trial to decide many futures, can Jake survive?



It’s been five years since hardworking lawyer Jake Martin started at Sperling, Beekman, Howe, Woods, & Simon.

A senior associate, he’s had his eye on the coveted position of partner for far too long…and five years in, it’s make or break time.

When client Augustus Daren finally passes away after a year on life support, Jake is pulled into a world where the truth is more complicated than it seems.

Daren’s last will and testament places the control of his bank, Hanover Square, in the hands of his fourth wife, the clever and beautiful Elizabeth Daren, but his two grown children are furious.

Gussie and Chip have no need for the money, but they do want the bank — and are willing to go to any lengths to get it.

Claude Louis deSalle, the devious president of Hanover Square, is similarly shocked by the contents of Daren’s will.

His ambitions foiled, deSalle works behind the scenes as part of a silent team determined to get rid of Elizabeth Daren.

In their eagerness to destroy their stepmother, Gussie and Chip hire Tiger Sage, an experienced trial lawyer to contest the validity of the will.

Canny, quick, and more than able to turn a jury in his favour, he shines in a courtroom in a way that Jake can only dream of.

And when Jake, a lawyer with zero experience of litigation, is unexpectedly assigned the task of trying the case, he finds himself at the mercy of powerful men and women, buffeted back and forth by currents of power.

Ultimately, he realises that when in the presence of enemies, the only person you can truly count on is himself…
