The Ruby Brooch (The Celtic Brooch Trilogy) Romance, Western, Time Travel
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. ~Anaïs Nin
Can a 21st century paramedic find her heart's desire on the other side of time?
From the white-plank fenced pastures of Lexington, Kentucky, to the beautiful Bay of San Francisco, The Ruby Brooch, a saga steeped in family tradition and mystery, follows a young woman's journey as she searches for the truth on the other side of the heather-scented mist.
As the lone survivor of a car crash that killed her parents, paramedic Kit MacKlenna makes a startling discovery that further alters her life. A faded letter and a well-worn journal reveal that she was abandoned as a baby and the only clues to her identity are a blood-splattered shawl, a locket that bears a portrait of a nineteenth-century man, and a Celtic brooch with mystical powers.

After studying the journal, she decides to continue her father's twenty-year search for her identity and solve her birth parents' murders. For safety reasons, she adopts the persona of the Widow MacKlenna. Although a perfect cover for her eccentric behavior, she will be forced to lie and MacKlennas don't lie, or so she thought. Finally, dressed and packed, she utters the incantation inscribed on the ancient stone and is swept back to Independence, Missouri, in the year 1852.

The Insiders Action and Adventure, Genre Fiction, Mystery and Adventure, Historical Fiction
Thrill, suspense, conspiracy, mystery, corporate corruption, and more clash in this new brand of thriller by New York Times bestselling author Craig Hickman. Untainted by political, journalistic, or legal manipulation and uncorrupted by fear or threat of retribution, The Insiders enthralls you with an alarming tale of how corrupt CEOs, secret societies, corporate deceit, domestic espionage, murder for hire, and cunning manipulation are destroying the American dream, influencing our daily lives, and reshaping global society.

Wilson's father, Charles Fielder, one of the richest men in the world, has just murdered two women and tried to kill himself. Or did he? Lying in a coma, Charles cannot help his only son understand the mysteries of his life nor his role in founding an exclusive club of the world's most powerful CEOs--the ultimate insiders club with unparalleled perks. Wilson must face this cutthroat world of concealed machinations, corporate espionage, international finance, and economic conspiracy on his own--in order to uncover his father's real agenda, expose the secret society of insiders, and fight to change the face of capitalism. That is, if he can stay alive.

Take a plunge into this dangerous and deceitful world of the rich, the famous, and the powerful. Witness the unholy alliances between business and government and the real forces behind our recent financial crisis. The Insiders is a heart-pounding tale full of twists and turns and eye-opening revelations that will make your adrenaline rush last until the very end.

Sometimes, the truth can only be told through fiction...

Shadow Keeper (Shadow Trilogy) Horror, Paranormal?, YA?
Brendon Alexander was a normal high school kid until his dead grandfather appeared in the flames of a fire and told him of the gift he inherited: He has the power to force a demon from an inflicted body and send the creature back to Hell.

Lisa Stratton, the new girl at school, has a secret of her own-her father is possessed by a demon. She recognizes the scar on Brendon's chest that brands him as a protected one, but she must discover if he has the ability to cleanse the evil from her father's body.

The closer Brendon gets to Lisa, the more he uncovers buried secrets from the past. Not hers, but his-his father's death and the creature that killed him, and the legacy handed down to him from beyond the grave. Burning curiosity and frightening nightmares thrust Brendon deeper into his past while Lisa urges him forward into danger-and into his destiny.

Also, no links, but why are there so many fifty shades of gray rip off novels for free lately? At least two tonight, one I noticed the other day. I don't generally enjoy parody, because I think there is a tendency for it to be REALLY poorly done and winds up being a complete and total rehash of the original where the only thing that's different is that the names of the characters and places are humorous in tone compared to the original... Weird Al is one of the only people I've found that does parody that I UNDERSTAND and like, because its clever. Most parody these days is just bad. imnsho. sorry if that was long and ranty. It is late and I get ranty when I can't sleep.

I went onto eReader instead of Kinlib this morning - and snagged way too many. I'm going to have to do two posts!

The Electra File (Book 5 of the Jay Leicester Mysteries Series) - Jay Leicester is hired by his friend Guy Robbins to help find his missing sailboat. It is found scuttled offshore with two bodies aboard.

Mirror Mirror - short story - Strange things do not necessarily always have to happen in fairy tales. Sometimes, strange things happen to perfectly normal and often boring people, leading perfectly normal and boring lives.

Badge of Evil - The Universal International film based on this outstanding American suspense-thriller stars Charles Heston, Janet Leigh and Orson Welles, who plays the part of a tough veteran cop whose reputation is at stake in the solution of a brutal murder.

Must Love Dogs - humor - The perils of various tried and true dating ploys, from personals ads to the use of adorable pooches as date bait. "If I didn't have a job, I might have stayed in bed until I rotted," muses Massachusetts preschool teacher Sarah Hurlihy, almost 41, divorced and dateless for two years. She's out to change all that when she bravely answers a personals ad in a local paper.

The Last English Village - contemp fiction - On 22 December 1943, the Susan Rae, an American B17 Flying Fortress, is lost. Records of the incident mysteriously go missing. On the same day, the village of Lower Friththingden is the scene of several remarkable events: Two Rolls-Royces are seen parked near the village church; overhead a German parachute mine floats down, heading directly toward the church. More than a half-century later, two men, an embittered American and a reclusive Englishman, have their lives altered as a consequence of the disappearance of the Susan Rae.

Spectors - sci-fi - Space pirate Kristy Ryan is having a bad day. First, her pilot and lover picks a fight with her. Second, the Military Space Alliance comes across her ship when she's running a not-so-legal job. Third, she finds out her father, a notorious space pirate himself, disappeared while working for the MSA. Fourth, and the final straw, the MSA is blackmailing her to continue the dangerous mission her father started. What else could go wrong?

Murder in a Good Neighborhood - mystery - A killer is settling scores in Eastport, Virginia, and many of the town's top movers and shakers are on the list of suspects. When an old flame is arrested, Roxanne Flowers sets out to prove his innocence, aided by the abbess of a local monastery.

The author of the next five is J.I. Greco, who appears to be offering all of his books/short stories free today. I've read one of his stories, Mondo Heetze, which was offered free in February. It was warped and funny, so based on that, I took all the the ones offered today.

Take the All-Mart! (Reprobates of the Wasteland #1) - sci-fi - A devastated post-apocalyptic wasteland. A gang of hoverboard-riding, cannibalistic bounty hunters. A zombie-filled, world-devouring, sentient department store. And two idiot cyborgs in a two-hundred year old mind-controlled Dodge Swinger running from a jilted warlord queen and willing to take it all on for the love of an orgy-loving cyber-nun. And for a reward. Okay, mostly for the reward.

We're Going to War! (Reprobates of the Wasteland #2) - An army of robots built from spare parts. A cult of alien-god worshiping squids. A nano-mechanical ex-zombie queen just trying to find her place in the world. And two idiot cyborgs out to con their neighbors into going to war for fun and profit.

Greed Sloth Arrogance and Shame (Short Story Collection) - Near omnipotent tyrants returned from the dead. Cyborg ennui. Human brains in alien pets. Alien invasions through capitalism. Self-dissection and pleasure nanomachines. Slave-owning robots. Squirrels and pigeons at war. All that and more in nine darkly comic science fiction stories.

Broont & Van Helsing: Zombie Makers - Mad scientists Reginald Broont and Billy Van Helsing won't let anything keep them from creating the perfect zombie: Not jobs as summer camp counselors, the criminal justice system, mechanical sharks, Swiss agitprop, an alarming lack of athletic skill, or even ninjas. Especially not ninjas. (I don't usually get zombie books but the *ninjas* did the trick.)

The Blockade Run - short story - Mercenary pilot and adventurer Susan "Tsunami" Nakamura is hired to covertly retrieve data from a world about to be destroyed by its own moon. No problem - there's only a blockade, a ruthless alien bio-arms wrangler, and a swarm of planet-eating bugs to deal with first. (This one is not in the above anthology.)

Two by Lee Goldberg:

Double Header (Two Complete Novels) - Two "Charlie Willis" crime novels: My Gun Has Bullets and Dead Space (previously free Feb. 1)

Double Impact (Watch Me Die & McGrave) - (Watch Me Die is in the Ultimate Thriller Box Set, free Feb. 1)

Historical Fiction- Seven-Inch Vinyl: A Rock and Roll Novel
Product Description
In 1953, the entire world waited for an explosion. The United States and The Soviet Union both possessed a weapon that could blow the planet to bits. But when the explosion finally did come, it wasn't from an Atom Bomb blast-but from the birth of rock and roll music.
Seven-Inch Vinyl chronicles the evolution of rock and roll between the years 1953-1969. An interesting array of fictional characters takes the reader on a remarkable journey from the rural landscapes of Kentucky where Rhythm and Blues is on the rise to the juke joints of Memphis as R&B meets country to create the Rockabilly sound. From there travel north to the bustling metropolitan cities of Cleveland and New York where the vocal harmonies from singing groups seems to occupy every street corner. The British Invasion of performers in the mid-sixties threatens the very life of the American music scene. But bolstered by the founding of Motown, and the emerging folk scene from Greenwich Village to Haight-Ashbury, a rock and roll revival rejuvenates past careers and re-kindles the popularity of its early days.
Told against a backdrop of racism, political unrest, war and assassination, the narrative blends actual historic events with music history to demonstrate how rock and roll changed the lives of generations of young men and women to forge the course of the nation and the world.

Comedy Romance Fiction- Must Love Dogs
Following up on themes from her debut novel, Ready to Fall, which looked at the pitfalls of cyberspace romance, Cook here chronicles the perils of various tried and true dating ploys, from personals ads to the use of adorable pooches as date bait. "If I didn't have a job, I might have stayed in bed until I rotted," muses Massachusetts preschool teacher Sarah Hurlihy, almost 41, divorced and dateless for two years. She's out to change all that when she bravely answers a personals ad in a local paper, but instead gets the ultimate nightmarish response her would-be date turns out to be her widower father, something her sprawling Irish Catholic family naturally finds wildly funny. Her oldest sister, Carol, decides the best way for Sarah to move on is to create her own personals ad, and soon Sarah's love life is lively, if not downright rambunctious. "God hates glib," "God hates ugly" and "God hates a smarty-pants" are all standards in the Hurlihy family lexicon, but Cook employs just enough glibness and smarty-pants humor to make this tart slice-of-the-single-life worth reading. As for "ugly," Sarah also learns some serious lessons about what the word really means and it's not a prospective suitor's nose hairs, his bald pate or his beer-belly bulge. Breezy first-person narration makes this a fast-paced, humorous diversion.

From Library Journal
This utterly charming second novel by Cook (Ready To Fall) is a fun read, perfect for whiling away an afternoon on the beach. Sarah Hurlihy is 40 years old, divorced, and happily teaching preschoolers a multicultural curriculum. But her interfering, overzealous Boston Irish family thinks that she should be dating, and with much love she is pushed into answering a personal ad from a gentleman seeking a lady "who enjoys elegant dining, dancing and the slow bloom of affection"; the clincher is that he's a man who "loves dogs." That man turns out to be the last man on earth any woman would want to date, but Sarah pushes on, slowly falling headlong into the dating game with decidedly mixed results. Meanwhile, Sarah's widowed father has his own dating troubles, brother Michael is deep in marital problems, and sister Carol is having difficulty at home with her temperamental teenage daughter, who turns to her favorite aunt for comfort and body-piercing support. Somehow, they all seem to end up on Sarah's doorstep at the most inopportune moments, keeping the laughs going all the way to the not-quite-storybook-perfect ending. Suitable for all public libraries. Stacy Alesi, Palm Beach Cty. Lib. Syst., Boca Raton,

Nonfiction Travel/Christian- An Italian Journey: A Harvest of Revelations in the Olive Groves of Tuscany: A Pretty Girl, Seven Tuscan Farmers, and a Roberto Rossellini Film
Product Description
"Planning a trip to Italy? Read this so you don't miss out on the Italy that tours never visit. If you're staying at home, just sit back and enjoy the ride. Preferably with a nice Tuscan wine at your side." ~ Dianne Hales, author of La Bella Lingua
"Many of us would love to live this book. James Shaw has done it for us and allowed us to come along. I like it all, an adventurous journey with a compassionate author. Well Done, Well Done." ~ Roscaloni
An adventure of the heart in the mold of literature's classic spiritual journeys.
It began with a girl. Then it was Italian food. After that it was books and discovering that even Mark Twain had fallen for Italy.
E.M. Forster was smitten too: "Love and understand the Italians,
for the people are more marvelous than the land."
What is it about Italy and Italians?
Italian movies immortalize the mystique. Fellini called it La Dolce Vita.
Tornatore's Cinema Paradiso took James Shaw back to the sweet memories of his childhood and the Italian family who operated the hometown theater. And just like in the movie, young James had an "Alfredo" who, by example, taught him about serving people.
James learned that Italians don't feel they're special. Luigi Barzini, author of
The Italians, repeatedly asked, "Why are we the way we are?" and found no
conclusive answer.
But James was convinced there was a reason why the Renaissance was born in Tuscany-and Italy has given the world Saint Francis, Michelangelo, da Vinci, Galileo and now Benigni, whose film "Life Is Beautiful" shows us that the Italian zest for living can even make a heaven of a hell.
And so, after a lifetime of thinking about Italy James became convinced that the way to find out why Italians are the way they are, would be to eat with them at their kitchen tables. Day after day he picked their olives and the Italians began treating him like family. And James began seeing their unique human quality that attracts people to Italy and keeps pulling them back again and again.
But the story doesn't end in the olive groves of Tuscany. To discover the
heart of Italian life, James had to travel back to World War II Italy.
An Italian Journey will inspire you to follow your passions, your enthusiasms,
to your own Beautiful Discoveries.
Bella Scoperta!

Dream Angel opens in 1850 Paris. Attending the Nouveau Cirque, Sean sees Angelique for the first time and, in less than an instant, he knows the beautiful rope walker is the love of his life. Due to a wretched misunderstanding, Angelique travels to Connecticut, America, to live with her Aunt Bernadine. Sean emigrates to NYC. Employed by P.T. Barnum, Sean recruits singer Jenny Lind ("The Swedish Nightingale"). Sean is reunited with Angelique, but he learns that her aunt has promised her to a wealthy plantation owner. Heartbroken, he assembles a traveling circus.

Angelique's cruel aunt is murdered and the dastardly deed is blamed on 7 cats, named for the days of the week. But the police soon realize that a person stabbed Bernadine-before she was clawed by the cats-and when Angelique is the number one suspect, she poses as Jenny Lind's personal tour servant and trails Sean across the USA.

Dream Angel is the prequel novella (short book) to Mary Ellen Dennis's 1875 circus novel, The Greatest Love on Earth, starring Angelique's equestrian daughter, Calliope.

Yesterday I posted this link and complained about the formatting. Turns out the issue is in the cloud reader and it's fine in the kindle, book is still free:) I am in the process of changing my rating.

*ETA new review is up, my apologies to the author, Ann Chambers

Mouse: Collected Works Volumes 1 to 5 What would the world be like from a cat's perspective? Experience the world through the eyes of a young cat with a language barrier, who gets away with more than one would expect. Mouse series. Collected Works Volumes 1 to 5 -

Each volume is a short story - some of these were free earlier. I read the first couple and liked the portrayal of Mouse (the cat) and was happy to see more stories available in this collection. These are NOT for children, mild language and sexual innuendo.

Apologies for the extended synopsis. It was hard to cull a precis.

Cirkus
Literary Fiction
In Patti Frazee's astonishing debut novel, enchantment and illusion casually commingle with reality as the Borefsky Brothers Circus makes its way across the American Midwest in the summer of 1900.
Mariana, the fortune teller, makes herself invisible and drifts through the nighttime circus, listening in on conversations and watching over her beloved Shanghai, a fire-breathing dwarf who closely guards his secrets, even from Mariana's second sight. Conjoined twins Atasha and Anna cling to each other and weep for their home and for their mother and father who sold them to the circus. Jakub, the circus manager and husband to Mariana, fears his wife's gifts, grieves his own failures, and drinks to forget it all. The stories and closely guarded histories of the troupe of performers dance around each other until a love affair between Shanghai and Atasha destroys the delicate balance.
As secrets are revealed and old wounds are opened, the consequences are unbearable to some and liberating to others. Lyrically graceful and populated by vividly drawn characters, Cirkus is a haunting novel of devastating heartbreak and exquisite loveliness.

Base Spirits by Ruth Barrett
Historical Fiction/Spooky Stuff
In 1605, Sir Walter Calverley's murderous rampage leaves a family shattered. The killer suffers a torturous execution... but is it truly the end? A noble Yorkshire house stands forever tarnished by blood and possessed by anguished spirit.
As an unhappy modern couple vacation in the guesthouse at Calverley Old Hall, playwright Clara, and her scholar husband, Scott, unwittingly awaken a dark history. Clara is trapped and forced back in time to bear witness to a family's bloody saga. Overtaken by the malevolent echoes, Scott is pushed over the edge from possessive husband to wholly possessed...

Just a thought here. I don't always list books that I have "snagged". I sometimes list a book that sounds promising but don't want for my self. I list it anyway and it serves as a "bump".

I posted this update, but oddly, some of the books are coming up 404, page not found...

Here is one from the kinlib 21, that is working. :)

Jockeys and Jewels by Bev Pettersen
Romantic suspense - Julie West, a struggling and dedicated jockey, pins her dreams of an elusive win on the new trainer in town, never suspecting she's a person of interest--and not because of her riding skills. - Kurt didn't expect his contrary colt to flourish under Julie's feminine touch nor for his own rusty heart to soften. However, his deceit sucks them both into the cross hairs of a killer, and suddenly much more than their love is in danger. - Includes an excerpt of Kindle Bestseller Color My Horse by Bev Pettersen.
