Always with You, by Andrea Hurst. (Still free?)

"It's a forbidden relationship....and one that crosses moral boundaries. But with Andrea Hurst's storytelling, you can't help but root for "the other woman". This book takes you on an emotional roller coaster that examines all 3 sides of a difficult situation. Although I've read several books this month, this was the first one in a long while to totally captivate me. And I can't forget to mention Andrea's exquisite descriptions of food. Yum! She's a chef with her words and left me hungry enough to eat my Kindle! I highly recommend!" -- Amazon Reviewer

~Melissa Foster -New York Times & USA Today bestselling &

"Warm-hearted, wise, touchingly written, and exploring the depths of human emotions. This book about forbidden love is not to be missed."
~Bharti Kirchner, Author of five novels including Darjeeling and Tulip Season.


1977 is a glorious time to be alive in the beautiful wine country of Northern California, and Cathy has everything she thought she wanted - from a thriving health food café to loyal friends.

Since the devastating failure of her short-lived marriage, Cathy has buried herself in her work and kept men at arm’s length. But when an old high school friend, Pam, brings her family for a short stay, Cathy’s stone walls begin to crumble when she meets Jamie. Jamie, whose compassion and warmth slowly break down her defenses. Jamie, whose devotion to his four-year-old daughter melts Cathy's heart and makes her desperate for a family of her own. Jamie… who is married to Pam.

A profound love that transcends time and place is impossible to resist. But is love more important than friendship? Are loyalty and fidelity an anchor or a chain? In the end, it’s all about choices – tough ones that can break hearts. Now Cathy must make the most difficult choice of her life.

Outsiders, by Tammy Ferebee. (Still 0.99?)

"I absolutely love this book!! I related to Jaylen so much throughout the book and I feel as though she will reach many others as well. I really enjoyed the writing style used. It kept me engaged and in the mind of the main character which I love. So descriptive that I could create vivid images within my own imagination. I found myself forcing myself to stay awake after some long days to read because I just had to know what was going to happen next! I also enjoyed that this book wasn't predictable, which books about teenagers can typically be, but here I gasped with shock multiple times while reading. I am dying to read the sequel and I hope it's coming soon." -- Amazon Reviewer

Something greater than human…

Jaylen Hayes knows that she is different from all other seventeen-year-old girls. Possessing extraordinary intelligence, she is also uncannily powerful and inexplicably hated by wild animals. But it is not until she transfers to Trinity High that she learns the truth about who—and what—she really is.

Instinctively drawn to two new classmates—the intense and passionate Indigo, and the charismatic and breathtakingly gorgeous Michael—Jaylen soon learns the shocking secret of their shared heritage, and the bloodline that extends to the stars. However, all is not what it seems, and Jaylen soon finds her newfound security threatened when a trusted friend becomes a dangerous and vengeful enemy.

The Sans Pareil Mystery (The Detective Lavender Mysteries Book 2), by Karen Charlton. (Still 1.99?)

"This is a highly engaging mystery novel that is the second in the series of Detective Lavender novels set in the Regency period. Lavender and his assistant, Constable Woods are back, this time investigating the murder of a promising young actress in London's theatre district. Behind stage and in front there are many possible suspects and motives as the tensions ratchets up among staff, management and others, including the Prince of Wales. Lavender still finds time for his relationship with Magdalena as he is drawn deeper into her affairs and her mysterious background. This is a wonderfully entertaining read with plenty of atmosphere and just the right spice of mystery and shenanigans." -- Amazon Reviewer


On a cold February night in Regency London, a dark curtain falls on the Sans Pareil Theatre following the death of April Clare, a promising young actress, whose body is found in mysterious circumstances.
Detective Stephen Lavender and his dependable deputy, Constable Woods, quickly discover that nothing is quite as it seems. As successive mysteries unfold, they soon realise that it is not only the actors from the Sans Pareil who are playing a part.
With the Napoleonic War looming dangerously across the Channel, this is a time of suspicion and treachery. Following the clues from the seedy back streets of Covent Garden up through the echelons of society, Lavender and Woods begin to fear that the case is much bigger than they’d dared imagine—and worse, that they are at risk of becoming mere players in a master criminal’s shadowy drama.
It will take all of Lavender’s skill and wit, and help from the beautiful Magdalena, to bring the mystery of the Sans Pareil Theatre to a dramatic conclusion in the final act.

Eternal Magic (Dragon's Gift: The Huntress Book 4), by Linsey Hall. (Still 3.99?)

"Following Cass and her deirfur's story, you would think that we have already seen the most beautiful places and artifacts, been to most exciting adventures, and battled the strongest. But this Eternal Magic threw them out of the window! We are given stronger powers, more awesome adventures and sites, bigger battles and more allies in this book. And there's a promise of bigger, better things in the next book.

This is one epic adventure that will keep you glued to your reader. I don't want this series to end!!!" -- Amazon Reviewer

Cass Clereaux has a few problems. Sure, she just saved her whole town and is now immortal, but immortality sucks. The same spell that made her immortal also takes away her magic. It’s kaput. Finito. Gone. Being a FireSoul and finding magical treasure is who she is. Now, she couldn’t find her left leg with a map. Not even if a dragon pointed the way.

To make matters worse, her concealment charm is malfunctioning. Demons are showing up left and right, trying to bring her head back to the Monster who stalks her. While Cass is on the hunt to recover her magic and learn about her past, the specter of the Monster is getting ever closer to his mysterious end goal. She’s prophesied to meet him on the field of battle—but if she doesn’t have her magic back by then, she’s dead.

Ancient Magic features kick butt heroines, a tough hero, and otherworldly adventure. Reviewers have compared it to Jaymin Eve and Illona Andrews.
