Welcome to Friday! Are you superstitious? If so, you’re probably hiding under the sheets rather than up and celebrating the end of the work week. To me, Friday the 13th has always been a lucky day and Saturday the 14th is the day that I would rather hide away and pretend like the world doesn’t exist. It all started when I was only eleven years old and I managed to fall down the steps AND fall off my swing set both on the same day which just so happened to be a Saturday the 14th. Maybe Friday the 13th just takes a while to catch up to me because I’m always moving too quickly? (ha ha)
Whether you believe in luck or not, I know if you’re like me, you look forward to kicking back on the weekend and enjoying a good read. That’s why I’m dedicating Fridays on my blog to special ebook freebies. For the sake of my first post, I’m going to share a few of the intriguing reads that I’ve come across on Amazon because that is where I usually go to shop. (Love my kindle!) In the future, I’ll be open to freebies on other sites as well. Because I write in the genre of erotica and steamy romance, I’ll assume my readers are interested in books of this nature so I’ll concentrate my efforts there. However, I’m certainly open to great books of any genre and if I find something I like, I’ll be sure to share it.
The authors of these ebooks are not holding a gun to my head to promote them (they don’t even know they’re being featured) and since I haven’t yet read their work, I can’t guarantee they are good reads. (Perhaps we can revisit the better books in a later blog post? Want to submit a book report for an ebook I’ve listed and you read? Contact me!)
Ultimately, I love books and I love to read them just as much as I love to write them so I’m using this space to share my passion. While I am happy to pick and choose my own random shares, I also welcome requests so if you are an author, be sure to let me know when you’re going to make your ebook available as a free promotion over a Friday and I will make sure I help to spread the word!
Without further ado, these are my five random selections with links to the Amazon US site for download. Happy Reading!
Runaway bride Louisa Honeycut is looking for a quick escape when she passes the Double Dare, Inc sign and the slogan “Are you ready for the time of your life?” seems like divine intervention. Sheltered by her overbearing father, Louisa has years of catching up to do and can think of no better person than gorgeous Sam Rawlins to show her. Is she ready for the time of her life? Hell, yes.
Ordinarily unflappable adventure guide Sam Rawlins makes his living showing the wealthy how to have fun, but nothing in his experience could have prepared him for the “adventure” Louisa Honeycut asks for. He might be showing Louisa the time of her life, but the quirky little snack-cake heiress is soon turning Sam’s own life upside down…and perversely, he likes the new vantage point.
(I’ve actually read Double Dare and recommend it as a fun, romantic read. )
Just like in the fairy tale, a lavish ball was being held to find Sheik Malik a bride. There was a darker side to this story though. The urgency was due to several assassination attempts and Malik had to marry quickly and produce an heir. The stability of his country depended on constancy and conservative leadership. He couldn’t allow his enemies to win.
But he wasn’t prepared for the silver clad goddess that caught his vision as she snuck down the servants’ hallway. Nor was he prepared for her resistance. In a room full of beautiful women, his interest was captured by a beauty that wanted nothing to do with him. Except that she caught on fire when he touched her and her soft, sensuous body inflamed him with need.
What was a man to do? Accept the challenge of convincing the lovely Shanelle to fall in love with him. Over a weekend of passionate kisses and stolen passion, Shanelle and Malik discovered that protecting the kingdom could be quite exhilarating.
I’ve always been a good girl. I grew up in a small town, dated my high school sweetheart all the way through college, and married him. I even waited until our wedding night for my first time. Yeah, that kind of good girl. Finding my husband in bed with the church secretary came as quite a shock, needless to say. Finding out he’d slept with just about every female in town was an even bigger shock.
Discovering those dirty little secrets is what sent me on a journey that I will never forget.
**BONUS** Includes three chapters from J. Lea López’s novel Sorry’s Not Enough.
This collection of five unrelated short stories looks at romantic relationships in various forms, from the tame to the erotic.
Every single woman knows at least a few basic safety rules. First, don’t talk the strangers. Second, don’t invite strangers into your home. Sometimes, however, a lonely woman gets comfortable and after darkness falls, lets those rules slide. But with the darkness, if one believes in such things, might come creatures of the night. Throw an open door invitation into the mix, and anything can happen…
Psst… pass it along and be sure to return next Friday for my latest list of hot freebies in time for the weekend…
