Save My Soul - Zoe Winters
Genre - Paranormal Fantasy 
Rating - R
4.6 (44 reviews)
Free until 23 February 2013
If you like Buffy the Vampire Slayer or the Twilight series, you’ll love Zoe Winters’ paranormal romance series.

Gothic romance bestseller.

Save My Soul: The Preternaturals, Book 2

... All he’s asking for is her soul.

That house. You know the one. It’s the one that seems alive from the road with windows like eyes that see inside you, the one that seems to always be for sale, the one Anna Worthington has wanted to live in since childhood. Ghost stories be damned.

But the dark being that haunts this house, is something far more sinister than a ghost. Luc is an ancient incubus, trapped by a fifty-year-old curse, and Anna is a temptation too sweet for any demon, let alone a practically starved and crazy one. Will she exorcise her house and live happily ever after with her cats, or will she fall prey to a dark lover who doesn’t just want her body, but her soul as well?

If the demon has his way, dying will be her best case scenario.

Zoe Winters’ Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy Series: The Preternaturals


Enter a world of dark desire and dark magic where today’s hero is tomorrow’s villain... or vice versa. Unleashed passions between unlikely lovers rage against the backdrop of a world of conflict and infighting among the secret factions of the preternatural underworld. 

Are you the villain if you’ve got good reasons? Are you the hero just because we’re rooting for you? Tormented alphas, charismatic and ruthless leaders, and the women torn and trapped between them, forced into situations they never should have had to face.

Amidst a world of ignorant humans, the demons (true immortals), vampires, and therians (shapeshifters) fight to keep their territories. The only humans aware of this world are the magic users: witches, wizards, and sorcerers who enjoy the ability to mix with the humans or the monsters depending on what suits their current purposes.

If the preternatural world is discovered and war breaks out, the humans have a chance... IF the magic users choose to cast their fate with their own kind. Magic combined with technology would even the playing field more than the monsters are comfortable with.

Dark Lovers you’ll meet in this series:

Cain: He’s an incubus dream boat, physically, but it’s nearly impossible to keep up with his body count. Any woman who comes to his bed is likely never to leave... at least not alive. But what happens when he meets a woman with a true death wish, the one meal he discovers he doesn’t want to kill? 

Cole: Alpha of one of the strongest werewolf packs in North America. His moral compass goes askew when he finds the woman fated to be his, and he can’t resist kidnapping her. With the life of abuse she’s suffered at the hands of the vampires, it might be a welcome rescue. But the werewolves have a worse reputation than the vampires, a fact that doesn’t inspire much trust. Not your classic sweet werewolf love story. But being an alpha’s mate brings with it a safety and security Jane has never known.



January Exposure - Sunny Benson
Genre - Mystery 
Rating - PG13
*New Release*
Free until 21 February 2013
In Fargo, North Dakota, it's January, the mercury is hibernating below zero, and chemist Ellie Craven prefers playing hockey to playing detective. But to protect her family and keep her sister out of jail, she investigates bizarre pranks at her grandpa's rest home, mingles with drug dealing outlaw bikers, searches for her kidnapped niece, and uncovers a murderer who uses an atypical weapon - the frigid Fargo weather.

Ellie uses her intelligence, her chemistry connections, and a sleigh-full of fortitude to rescue her niece and expose a murderer. Everyone's a murder suspect, including Ellie's kung fu queen sister Tandy, her senility-faking Grandpa, her potential love interest Brandon, and her brother-in-law Rick's look-alike mistresses Barbie and Clarissa. But in the icy end, Ellie discovers perception isn't always reality.

Genre - Thriller
Rating - PG13

The phone rings in the California home of businessman Nate Michaels before the sun is up on October 24, 1962. An hour later he's on an Air Force jet to Washington. Michaels hasn't seen or spoken to President Kennedy since they met at Stanford in the fall of 1940, but now JFK needs his help opening a back channel to defuse the threat posed by Soviet missiles in Cuba. In both the Pentagon and the Kremlin, pro-war generals want a showdown, not a humiliating compromise. As the world races toward nuclear holocaust during a fine and dangerous autumn, Michaels finds himself spinning in a maelstrom of statecraft, espionage, love, and betrayal.

"A compelling story, written with a sure hand, that keeps you intrigued. But watch out for the gut punches. They come often and unexpectedly. Raffel definitely has his game on." --Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Columbus Affair and The Jefferson Key

"A rare historical novel - exciting and utterly believable - with Jack Kennedy as you've never seen him. Raffel is a master storyteller. I loved A Fine and Dangerous Season." --Gayle Lynds, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Spies

"It's been half a century since the Cuban Missile Crisis brought us to the edge of the abyss. It's about time we got a page-turning thriller this good about it. The stakes are incredibly high, the action swift and chilling, the writing sleek and smooth. And the historical characters, from JFK to General Curtis LeMay, leap off the page. It may be fiction, but you'll believe every word of it." --William Martin, New York Times bestselling author of Harvard Yard and The Lincoln Letter 

"Think you know JFK? Think again. Keith Raffel's novel A Fine and Dangerous Season is a nail-biting, meticulously researched foray into the real-life thriller territory of the Cuban Missile Crisis. Don't miss it!" --Kelli Stanley, award-winning author of City of Secrets

"Raffel takes the reader on a wild ride from Stanford University right before World War II to one of the most dangerous moments of the Cold War. Loved it!" --Rebecca Cantrell, award-winning author of A City of Broken Glass

"A clever and deftly crafted retelling of the Cuban Missile Crisis through the eyes of JFK's old Stanford buddy. Not to be missed." --Robert Gregory Browne, bestselling author of Trial Junkies

C'est la Vie (Raja Williams Series)
C’est La Vie - Jack Thompson
Genre - Mystery, Thriller
Rating - R
5 (6 reviews)
Free until 21 February 2013
What do a private detective, a hacker and an assassin have in common? The desire to help when justice needs a hand.

C'est La Vie is a rollicking detective mystery thriller featuring Raja Williams and his partner Vinny Moore. Neither the dark, tragic anti-hero nor the James Bond super-hero type, Raja Williams is a wealthy Oxford-educated PI of mixed Caribbean descent who possesses a strong empathic power and a sixth sense for evil that gives him headaches and steers him straight into trouble. His partner Vinny Moore is a gorgeous hipster geek who prefers hacking computers to haute couture.

In C'est La Vie, book two in the popular series, Raja and Vinny go to Paris when the wife of a visiting British professor disappears and three policemen are executed. The investigation leads straight into the world of club drugs, white slavery and an international criminal known only as the Scorpion.

The writing style is lean and fast paced, with a hint of hard-boiled and plenty of humorous banter between the two protagonists, a la Dashiell Hammett's The Thin Man. A colorful cast of characters, great dialogue and a suspenseful, twisting plot make C'est La Vie an entertaining tale that can be read as a stand-alone book or as the sequel to The Color of Greed.

Every now and then one small soul rises from the crowded depths of obscurity and causes the earth to wobble on its axis. This last happened in 2008 when an unemployed doorman stepped onto the worldwide stage in Stockholm and accepted The Nobel Prize for Literature.

In this me-me twenty-first century, Thomas Soles may very well be the last American martyr. This self-described “simple man” writes a book that is so powerful it brings back to life the all-but-dead international labor movement. The response to his thoughts and perceptions are astounding. Around the globe, from pole to pole, America to Zimbabwe, the footsteps of marching workers begin to tremor the earth. But not everyone is pleased.

There’s a tight-knit, elitist clique that is absolutely livid over the thoughts and ideals that fill the pages of Tom's book. And when he and his wife, Elaina, return home from Sweden, they realize just how dangerous this profit-hungry mob can be.

Mortified by the horrible scene that awaits them inside their apartment, the Soles have no choice but to flee their longtime home. Hoping to find peace and anonymity, they bounce all over America in an RV. But they don’t find what they're looking for. Instead they become moving targets. And everywhere they go they're followed by a succession of life-threatening events.
