So, you've hired a detective agency to prove your partner is cheating on you. But there's no evidence to be found. Who you gonna call?
Me. I am the assassin. Your friend.
Anything your other half secretly desires, whatever makes her give in to temptation... that's who I'll become. Get close to her. Take her out. Bang. That's what a relationship assassin does. Infidelity for hire!
But don't think I'm heartless. I'm a professional. I've got Rules to protect my targets. Rules to stop them getting too close to the real me. Rules that were blown away when three extraordinary women – the seductress, the celebrity, and the office girl – turned my world inside out.
And for a relationship assassin, having an other half was like shooting myself in the heart...

First book in the Going to the Dogs series and is a novella at 26,000 words.
Fresh, fun, sexy, if you love dogs you must get this book!--NYT bestselling author, Lori Wilde
Jack has some ‘splainin’ to do!
That's right! Callie Lassiter's normally well-behaved Great Dane Jack has run off and done the wild thing with the neighbor's dog. It must be puppy love! It's doubly embarrassing since she's a professional dog trainer. Of course, the neighbor would have to be hot, hot nightclub owner bad boy Owen McKay, just the kind of man Callie is determined to avoid.
Owen’s comfortable with his playboy status and the hype in the media. But the ground moves beneath his feet when he gets an eyeful of the girl next door. The Dog Whisperer never looked this good! How can he convince this wholesome honey that his player days are behind him? Maybe Jill, his Great Dane can help him with this dilemma now that she’s pregnant and Callie’s dog is to blame.
Is this bad boy a bad bet?
Do Nothing! Stop Looking, Start Living - Damian Mark Smyth
Genre - Self Help

The state of humanity is down to the state of its thinking. It is the misunderstanding of the ‘function’ of individual thought systems that causes the problems, pain and suffering in the world. This ‘reactive’ thinking interferes with the flow of creative intelligence. When busy thinking subsides, new thought is available, and with it, innovation and resilience. The ‘trick,’ is simply to see how the ‘trick is done’. That’s it, no more. No processes, just an understanding. I point towards this understanding of the ‘human operating system’, which turns cause and effect, completely inside-out.
What if you were able to live a perfect, happy life, effortlessly... right now!? What if you discovered the secret that has been talked about by mystics throughout the ages, that was not only incredibly simple but was also accessible to you without doing a thing? What if every area of your life could be improved with one realisation, one thought, one simple understanding? Damian Mark Smyth is a teacher of this understanding and he takes you through the most common misunderstandings and misconceptions to help you realise that humanity has, for the most part, been looking in the wrong direction when it comes to happiness. The ‘outside-in’ world of fame and money is not the way to be fulfilled - just look at the amount of rich and famous people in rehab and therapy. His approach is more in tune with who you really are. From relationships to money, the business environment, parenting to sport and even addiction, Damian will show you where the secret lies and how you too can access it.

Recovering alcoholic Bruce Kohler and his good friends Jimmy and Barbara decide to escape the big city for a wellness and couples workshop outside of Sedona. The joint is called The Aquarius, a New Age community the locals have taken to calling The Woo-Woo Farm. But the serene retreat has much more in store than yoga mats, didgeridoos, ecstatic dancing and aboriginal tracking.
During an early morning hike, the trio encounters America’s bestselling relationship guru, Melvin Markowitz, posed for meditation and strangled to death with a luggage strap. The race is on for the three friends to find the murderer. Bruce falls for the victim's widow, Jimmy longs for the city, and Barbara minds everybody's business as usual.
But when Melvin's baby sister's volatile husband "Madhouse" is also found dead, it seems everyone at the Woo-Woo Farm is suddenly in danger from more than just a handful of holistic loonies...
Readers will laugh and cry and fall in love with Bruce’s smart mouth and heart of gold, Barbara’s comical efforts to fight her addiction to helping (she knows she's co-dependent), and Jimmy’s solid sweetness and cyberspace wizardry.
The Freedom Star - Jeff Andrews
Genre - Historical Fiction
Rating - PG13
4.7 (38 reviews)
Free until 19 March 2013
Isaac risks his life shepherding runaways along the Underground Railroad, all the while dreaming of the day when he too can escape the tobacco fields of South Boston, Virginia and begin a new life up north. He yearns for the freedom that Henry McConnell, his owner’s son, takes for granted.
Isaac and Henry grew up together on the tobacco farm owned by Henry’s father, but what drew them together in the innocence of their youth now drives a deep wedge between them. At the onset of the Civil War, Henry joins the Confederates. Soon after, his father suffers a devastating stroke and his older brother exploits the family crisis to seize control of the farm. Suddenly, McConnell slaves come under the whip, Isaac’s family is torn apart, and the atmosphere in the slave quarters becomes as oppressive as the August heat.
Henry returns from the battlefield to find Isaac angry, distant, and defiant. What follows is a bitter and fiery exchange—a confrontation that finally reveals a harsh truth they had never before shared. “The problem ain’t how you white folks is managing your property,” Isaac says. “The problem is that we is your property.”
Following a series of broken promises and futile escape attempts, Isaac’s only hope of reuniting with the woman he loves lies in joining Henry and the Rebels on their march north. When the Yankees wound Henry and take him prisoner, Isaac finds himself behind Union lines and free, but facing a gut-wrenching decision. Should he follow his dreams, or return to slavery to save his childhood friend?
The author’s thoroughly researched portrayal of slavery and the Civil War era adds a rich backdrop to this poignant and suspenseful work of historical fiction. In this gripping family saga, the author presents vivid characters and compelling layers of story that will hold readers until the very last page.
First the Soup - Joan Holcomb
Genre - Cookbook
Rating - G
4.0 (48 reviews)
Free until 19 March 2013
Several studies have shown that people who consume soup before a meal eat measurably fewer calories during the meal than those who have nothing prior to mealtime. Soup can be filling and satisfying without having an excess of calories. It can, in itself, be a meal (or a snack).
This cookbook has soup recipes which are generally lower in calories than their full-calorie counterparts. Avoiding fillers such as cornstarch and including healthy ingredients makes them more nutritious and less fattening. Even better, the recipes taste great, too! Time after time I've received compliments on these recipes from people who are watching their weight, and people who aren't (and seem surprised that they're eating a lower-calorie recipe).
So try these out, and enjoy!
