for Love and Vengeance – Johnny Ray
Genre – Romantic Thriller
Rating – PG13
4.4 (12 reviews)
Free until 12 March 2013
An International romantic thriller that you will never forget.
FOR LOVE AND VENGEANCE
When everyone lies to you—trust your gut instinct
If that fails—start over
For your love deserves the best
And murderous terrorist your vengeance
May God have mercy on their soul
Both the Americans and the Russians think Victoria works for them exclusively. In truth; the Pack, an International Crime Syndicate, brutally controls her while they launder money in America by buying distressed houses for terrorist sleepers. While she executes the perfect escape, staging her death during a shark attack, she makes one mistake—she meets Royce, who worked as a special operative several years earlier, the night before disappearing.
Royce, on the other hand, wants nothing to do with any American led special operations after he had been lied to in order to keep him focus on his prior mission. His girlfriend had been abducted and brutally murdered earlier while they had kept him in the dark. The last thing he had ever expected was another woman in his life, especially a Russian spy. Furthermore, he never would have believed that she would be the one thing that would encourage him to finish a mission that he should have taken care of the first time.
Royce is well trained on how to discover the truth, so although Victoria’s apparent shark attack was well conceived he knows better. He had used the life of a surfer bum for years as his cover. The more lies he uncovers, the more suspicious he becomes until finally he feels like he has little choice. His prior operation was so top secret even the CIA were told nothing He didn’t need them then, and he sure the hell didn’t need them this time either. The last time it was for country—this time it was going to be personal.

Abandoned Ship: An intimate account of the Costa Concordia shipwreck
Abandoned Ship - Benji Smith
Genre - Memoir, Travel
Rating - PG13
4.6 (33 reviews)
Free until 13 March 2013
On January 13, 2012, the Costa Concordia — a thousand foot long luxury cruise ship, twice the size of the Titanic — ventured into shallow water and smashed into the rocks of a tiny island off the coast of Italy, throwing the four thousand passengers and crew members into a state of chaos.
The captain and officers all abandoned ship, leaving a few remaining castaways to fend for themselves as the ship toppled onto its side and water flooded into the passenger decks.
In the wee hours of the night, newlyweds Benji Smith and Emily Lau held onto a rope, clinging precariously to the side of the sinking ship and desperately hoping for rescue. By this point, the lifeboats had all gone. They had been left behind.
This gripping, thoughtful memoir tells the remarkable story of the couple's harrowing escape and their long journey home, as well as their quest to find hope and meaning in the aftermath of a tragedy.

Dark Application: ONE (The Dark Application Series)
Dark Application - Brian Krogstad & Lindsey Waterman
Genre - Thriller
Rating - PG13
4.8 (46 reviews)
Free until 13 March 2013
Dark Application: ONE is the new technothriller fans are already comparing to the genre's greats. From the creative genius of the Pendergast books from Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child to the techno savvy of Michael Crichton; readers can't get enough. The fast pacing and tight plot control has some comparing it to the Bourne books from Robert Ludlum.
What is it about this novel that has fans already clamoring for the sequel?Perhaps it's the plausibility of the technology, the conspiracy, and above all, the unlikely hero. At the center of this new technothriller is Luke Jeffers, a regular guy about to become extraordinary.A college student in Virginia, he finds himself caught up in a technological conspiracy beyond his understanding.
Almost overnight, he transforms from starving student to an unwitting pawn in a web of murder, lies, and conspiracy when he discovers the Department of Defense Application for Remote Kinetics, a simple application accidentally downloaded onto his smart phone and almost immediately in control of his life.
In a style reminiscent of the best technothrillers of the last three decades, Dark Application: ONE is filled with dark conspiracy, cyperpunk overtones, and above all a mystery at its core critical to Luke's escape from the cycle of destruction. Volume One of the new Dark Application technothriller series by Brian Krogstad and Lindsey Waterman will leave you breathless and desperate for more, grateful that "Volume One" certainly means that more are coming ;)

Broken Aro (The Broken Ones)
Broken Aro - Jen Wylie
Genre - Fantasy
Rating - PG
4.7 (27 reviews)
Free until 13 March 2013
Open your eyes to darkness. What do you see? Does the darkness frighten you? Now imagine the darkness being the cargo hold of a slave ship. Your city has fallen. Your family is most likely dead. You don't know anyone around you, and some of them aren't even human. Giving up would be so easy to do, but not for Arowyn Mason. Not after being raised in a military family with seven brothers. Every great story should begin with a plan. Aro's was to escape and to survive.
Escape comes, but at a price. As they reach the shore, Aro and the other survivors learn that freedom doesn't mean safety. The slavers want their property back and will do anything to get it. The party uses every ounce of their brute strength, a hearty helping of cunning, and even ancient magics to keep themselves alive. Sickness, danger, and even love surprise them at every turn. Dealing with danger becomes their way of life, but none of them ever considered that nothing can be quite as dangerous as a prophecy. Running turns into another race altogether as her world falls to pieces again and again.
Four Days with Hemingway's Ghost
Four Days with Hemingway’s Ghost - Tom Winton
Genre - Suspense
Rating - PG13
4.3 (88 reviews)
Free until 13 March 2013
Four Days with Hemingway’s Ghost is not a story of spooks and goblins. It's a powerful story about two men from two very different times. One man is mortal, the other is immortal. One is painfully ordinary, the other world famous.
Jack Phelan is a forty-two-year-old underachiever who lives in South Florida. Although he mows lawns for a living, he’s not what you might expect. He’s got an exceptionally sharp mind and is a self-educated Hemingway aficionado.
After Jack gets into an unlikely accident he's flown by helicopter to the nearest hospital, where he remains in a coma for four days. But somehow, minutes after he blacks out, he finds himself in Key West, Florida--rubbing shoulders with an aged Ernest Hemingway.
Hem has been sent back down to help determine whether or not Jack has what it takes to write a book for “The Main Man above the clouds.” But what Ernest doesn’t know is that the book is to be about him. And that its purpose is to change the world’s perception of the swaggering, hard-knuckled, macho myth he has become.
Over the next four days, Jack Phelan and Ernest Hemingway travel to the legendary author’s old haunts and meet up with many of his long gone friends. Some of these reunions are rollicking good times, others are highly emotional tests of strength. But wait. When their time together comes to an end, the story is still not over. That’s when things really get interesting.

Give Me a Break - the art of making time work for you
Give Me A Break - Hugh D. Culver
Genre - Self Help
Rating - G
5 (28 reviews)
Free until 14 March 2013
The always-on, striving for more, multitasking, 24/7 world we live in is having its toll. We are getting busier, but not happier.
While the "time management" movement created more list-makers, it failed to address the heart of why "To-Do's" tended to trump time for family, and time to think, reflect, and plan was replaced by a bulging email Inbox.
In Give Me a Break, Hugh Culver presents a model for getting to the heart of why we never seem to have enough time and how to create the time we actually need. A past workaholic, successful business owner, and consultant to large corporations, Culver knows a lot about being busy and what defines success. His solution is to first redefine the beliefs that drive the behavior and from there reset priorities, create better systems, practice better habits, and finally, invest in reflection, review, and renewal.
The five systems in Give Me a Break are based on observations with thousands of employees in over a dozen industries. For each system, Culver presents persuasive arguments for investing in a redesign of your approach to work. For example, reducing unwanted interruptions by just twenty minutes a day is the equivalent of finding two weeks of new time a year. Like committing to making deposits in a bank account, Culver explains, the benefits of creating the time you want can be exponential. Rather than the usual list of productivity habits, Culver suggests eight original approaches he has tested with participants in his live training seminars over the past twelve years. For example, Honor the Mundane is the perfect active meditation for the always-on mind while Go with the Flow matches work difficulty to the natural rhythms of our energy in the day. A favorite habit of his clients is Start a Stop-Doing List where you stop doing low-value, unwanted, or simply out-dated tasks in favor of Me-Time (Culver is big on recharging the mind and spirit with regular exercise, and down-time). If you have tried the usual litany of time management books and still find you procrastinate and never seem to have time for yourself, this could be the solution for you.
