Khan Eilon lives a meager life as a solitary woodland huntsman. Deep in exile, he cares nothing for the world that cast him out — not for its poverty, nor its politics, nor the ever-present threat of war.
But no man can shut out the world forever. When a mysterious girl stumbles into his woods, possessed of untold powers and pursued by unknown foes, Khan finds himself compelled to protect her, no matter the cost.
Together by her side, Khan begins a long and arduous journey. He faces not only her enemies — a relentless pack of hunters far deadlier than he — but the cold, black shadows of his own distant past. For the stakes are higher than he knows, and closer to home than he dares imagine...

The kingdom of Somerlie has been in the grip of the evil overlord Tashtalon for over 500 years. No one has ever seen Tashtalon, but he puts the kingdom to sleep every night, and during the night, people disappear, never to be seen again. Gill has spent her life thinking these things could not possibly be changed, until strange events point her to the only thing that can defeat Tashtalon…a magical weapon called the Sword of Queens. To prevent its use, Tashtalon made a law saying that any woman wielding a sword will be put to death…and he enforces that law savagely. Can Gill summon the courage to find the sword and use it before Tashtalon kills her?

'Three Wishes' is a collection of three romantic magical fantasies.
Sometimes True Love needs a little help. That’s where the Fairy Godmothers’ Union, True Love Local steps in. ‘Three Wishes’ tells three loosely related stories in which the fairy godmothers help unite three couples to fulfill their destinies together.
‘In Every Day an Hour’ is the story of Jordan and Renata, who were divided by misunderstanding before they ever had the chance to get started together. It takes a dose of magic to dispel the misunderstandings and give love its chance.
In ‘Happy to be Stuck With You’ it takes a fairy godmother’s interference to get practical security-expert Craig and New Age mystic Amy together in one place long enough to see past their differences.
‘In Your Dreams’ calls on the fairy godmothers to free Linda from the enchantment that has kept her from being her true self and letting Tony, the man she secretly loves, see the true beauty within her.

Noble Cause is the recipient of the coveted John Esten Cooke Award for Southern Fiction and captured the title for Regional Fiction in the 2011 Next Generation Indie Award contest. It was also a Bronze winner in Foreword Magazine's BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD contest in the Romance category, and was a Finalist in the USA "Best Books 2011 Awards for Historical Fiction.
Often compared to Gone with the Wind, Midwest Book Review called Noble Cause "a riveting piece of historical fiction."
This is the tale of Colonel Alexander Hunter, a dauntless and daring Confederate cavalry officer, who, with his band of intrepid outcasts, becomes a legend in the rolling hills of northern Virginia. Inspired by love of country and guided by a sense of duty and honor, Hunter must make a desperate choice when he discovers the woman he promised his dying brother he would protect is the Union spy he vowed to his men he would destroy.
Readers will discover the fine line between friends and enemies when the paths of these two tenacious foes cross by the fates of war and their destinies become entwined forever.
Author Jessica James uniquely blends elements of romantic and historical fiction in this deeply personal and poignant tale that, according to one reviewer, “transcends the pages to settle in the very marrow of the reader’s bones.” Winner of numerous national awards, James has received critical acclaim for this page-turning story of courage, honor, and enduring love.
Destined for an honored place among the classics of the American Civil War, Noble Cause is a book to read, and keep, and remember forever.

Some men go to war for the glory. Some men go to war to escape. For Scott Remington, war is entirely different. It is a belief. It is a calling. It is a destiny. Leaving everything behind-his fiancée, his future, his life-he embarks on a mission of faith into a battle he can barely understand. This is his story. This is his war. This is only the beginning.

Free until 3 April 2013
What would you do...
...if it were your child?
The invasion has begun.
An invasion not from the stars but from within our wombs. All over the world children are being born…different. Their features are alien, their DNA isn’t human, their loyalties are unknown. As scientists, spies, and regular citizens race to make sense of this new disease they find themselves asking the same question: Is this the first wave of an alien assault on Earth?
Novelist and bioterrorism expert Dominic Peloso weaves a complex tale of alien invasion, environmental catastrophe, and societal upheaval, in a world not too removed from our own. Adopted Son perfectly blends hard sci-fi with biting political and social commentary to create a truly modern literary masterpiece that transcends genres.
Maryland in the Civil War - William S. Shepard
Genre - Non Fiction
Rating - G
5 (6 reviews)
Free until 4 April 2013
Just in time for the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, “Maryland In The Civil War” answers the need for a compact and accurate history of this tragic and heroic era. These four essays explore famous battles on Maryland soil such as Antietam, and little known episodes such as Maryland’s invasion of the Eastern Shore counties of Virginia, followed by the military occupation of Delaware!
The first essay, “The Setting, 1859-1860,” explores the Southern sympathies of the Eastern Shore, and slavery as an institution here. We trace the contributions and legacy of Eastern Shore natives Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass.
The second essay, “The Crisis, 1861,” concentrates on the efforts of Governor Hicks to keep Maryland in the Union. It is a thrilling story and a surprising one, for Hicks, a Dorchester County farmer who had been elected thanks to the Know-Nothing (American) Party nomination in 1857, soon found himself fighting the grand issues of the day with a General Assembly that was controlled by Southern Democrats. The pressures to at least convene a legislative convention to consider the secession issue – as Virginia was doing at the same time – caused enormous pressure. And the Pratt Street Riots of April 19, 1861, when federal troops passing through Baltimore ran into a rioting gang of outraged civilians, caused emotions to run at fever pitch.
Hicks’s nightmare came about, as Maryland became a “Battlefield, 1861-1863,” the third essay. Here, I hope that readers will take their Kindles with them to the battlefields of Antietam, South Mountain, and Monocacy, follow the narrative, and ponder over the sacrifices made on those battlefields. Antietam still holds the doleful record of the greatest American casualties ever sustained in one day.
In the fourth essay, “Last Rolls of the Dice, 1864-1865,” we follow the desperate gamble of General Jubal Early, CSA, to capture Washington. And of course, the path of deluded actor John Wilkes Booth is treated here, both the assassination of Lincoln, and the strange episode of Dr. Samuel Mudd, of Bryantown in Southern Maryland, who treated the injured Booth and just missed the death penalty at his ensuing trial.
Since Marylanders fought on both sides, neither should be forgotten. The Maryland Memorial at Gettysburg, seen on the cover of this e-book, portrays the scene, two wounded soldiers, USA and CSA, helping each other as they limp along. For a conflict that pitted brothers against each other, sometimes literally, that symbol of coming together is a worthy one, as Americans still ponder the past, and its lessons for the present.

Francey - Martin Dubow
Genre - Paranormal Romance
Rating - G
4.7 (26 reviews)
Free until 6 April 2013
Francey's nightmares are a very real cause for concern. So graphic, and so terrifying have they become, that the next one could very well end her life. A frantic search for the key to their unraveling leads her through a maze of past lives straight into the teeth of a web of intrigue so insidious that it has remained undetected for three and a half centuries; whereupon the path stops dead in its tracks at the gravesites of Lady Susan Sebastian and Edward Delaney. What possible connection could Francey have with the seventeenth century star-crossed lovers? And if there is one, how is she to draw the answer from them? This chasm of impossible proportions must be crossed, for only with the resurrection of the dead, and their secrets drawn from deep within their souls, can the little girl be saved.
