Paradisi Escape: A Paradisi Chronicles novella (Paradisi Exodus Book 1), by Cheri Lasota. (Still free?)

"The story takes place on the space-station and the star-ship, with a do-or-die launch deadline. There is time for plenty of action and a little romance, as the opposing sides struggle for control. A good read." -- Amazon Reviewer


Paradisi Escape, Book 1 of the Paradisi Exodus Series

Genre: Near-Future Scifi, Apocalyptic Earth, Colonization, First Contact

In near future 2094, Earth is on the brink of nuclear winter. A secret evacuation is already underway, and Solomon Reach and his crew have guaranteed passage on the last ship to leave for colonization and exploration of a new planet in the Andromeda galaxy. When Solomon learns of a betrayal that will have catastrophic consequences, he is faced with an impossible choice: who will live and who will die?

The Paradisi Chronicles Universe

In the last decades of the twenty-first century, ten families seeking to escape an increasingly devastated Earth focus their power and wealth on constructing spaceships that will allow a select few to leave Earth and colonize the world they call New Eden. Here, on their new home in the Paradisi System, these Founding Families hope to avoid the environmental and political disasters that were destroying Earth. But they find that the world they claim for their own is already inhabited, and the Ddaeran, although human in their appearance, possess abilities that the Founders and their descendants find both intriguing and frightening…

About

The Paradisi Chronicles is an open-source multi-author scifi universe set in a fictional planetary system in the Andromeda galaxy. Built by seven founding members of the group, Paradisi Chronicles has grown by leaps and bounds as more and more authors continue to explore 200 years of history spanning the flight from an apocalyptic Earth to the settling and expansion of the Paradisi System. Cheri Lasota's first book, Paradisi Escape, covers the escape of the lower class Reacher group as they leave the Solar System on the 11th and final ship. Cheri's Paradisi Exodus Series follows the Reachers across galaxies as they struggle to thrive on worlds that would wish they had never survived at all.

Reenie Gyse, by Katherine Starbird. (Still free?)

"An eerie, tantalizing story reminiscent of The Odyssey, Reenie Gyse is a spellbinder, woven with the rich imagery and forceful action characteristic of Kate Starbird's writing. The surprise ending made me laugh out loud. A must read!" -- Amazon Reviewer

A novella from award-winning author Katherine Starbird.

"A captivating tale of Norse Gods, sea witches and a hero in denial.”

In this riff on classic Norse myths, a young sailor is on a quest to circumnavigate the world when an aging siren's song draws him into a city marina. Soon he forgets his voyage and the animosity for his absentee father that fueled it as he is assimilated into the group of men who adore Reenie Gyse. She grows younger and stronger as the young man struggles to retain his identity.

Reenie Gyse is a coming of age story about a modern-day Viking on a quest for his soul. Based on Scandinavian Norse myths and combining Nordic mythology with the classic tale of the siren's song, this fantasy novella creates a new mythology for young adults.

“Sometimes it takes a supernatural intervention to show us who we really are.”

Gabriella (Hiatt Regency Classics Book 1), by Brenda Hiatt. (Still free?)

"I really enjoyed this charming, well-written story about Gabriella. The characters were very well-developed, enough so that I really liked them, hated them, or was annoyed because of their snobbish attitude and behavior. The book kept my attention throughout, in fact I read it in 3 days, so curious about the story that I was." -- Amazon Reviewer

He lost a wager . . . but won a treasure.

Due to a lost wager, the Duke of Ravenham is obliged to bring a pretty little nobody from the country into fashion among the high-sticklers of London Society. Ravenham would never refuse a debt of honor, no matter how unorthodox, so he overlooks Miss Gordon's vulgar relations to do what is necessary, escorting the unsophisticated chit to balls, etc. But what he expects to be an irksome duty turns out to be something quite different as he falls under the spell of his protege's innocent charm. When he lost that wager, he definitely never counted on losing his heart as well!

First impressions can be deceiving.

Miss Gabriella Gordon only came to London at her mother's and sister's insistence, for she'd much rather assist in running her father's veterinary practice than attempt to fit into fashionable society. No sooner has she arrived in London than the exalted (and exceedingly handsome) Duke of Ravenham comes to call. The reason is less than flattering, however: due to a lost wager, the Duke is forced to bring Gabriella into fashion, a "favor" she would certainly refuse if her family would let her. But the more time she spends in the dashing Duke's company, the more conflicted she feels— particularly when she discovers they have more in common than she ever dared dream.
