The Wolf's Moon, by Patrick Jones. (Still free?)

"Hold on to your hat! Full of suspense, adventure and a touch of romance, this is a great read that takes you into a supernatural experience and doesn't let you go until the last page. I enjoyed the author's writing style right along with the story.I felt the characters were believable as they face something none of us would care to." -- Amazon reviewer

In “The Wolf’s Moon,” author Patrick Jones creates a spellbinding tale of an ancient animal that haunts the foothill towns of Missouri’s Ozark Mountains. An unknown group of scientists has genetically engineered a Dire Wolf into the present day. Allegedly extinct, the ferocious beast preys upon the innocent people of Maple Hills.

To hunt and kill the beast, the town folk will have to rely on the tracking feats of Mark Lansdowne. He is a reluctant hero, still mourning the loss of his wife to illness. Relying on his rescue dogs and indefatigable hunting skills, Mark will set out on foot in search of the mysterious beast. Yet the hunter’s personal history and romantic entanglements will come back to haunt him during his search for the vicious animal.

Accompanying him on the hunt is his pal Warren Skruggs, who knew Mark when he was known as Michael Linden, a chapter of his history that he prefer be kept to the past. Adding to the intrigue are two beautiful, intelligent women who aid the hunter in his quest. Their looks and smarts would make the Bond Girls envious but Mark is still a grieving widower, unsure of how to move forward.

With its mixture of high-stakes hunting and personal and romantic intrigue, “The Wolf’s Moon” is a page-turner that will keep the reader captivated with its unexpected story twists. The thriller suspense novel is a real story grounded in the life and folkways of the Ozark Mountains not just another unbelievable werewolf story grafted onto the romance of the South.

“The Wolf’s Moon,” is available for sale online at Amazon.com and other channels.

Treat with Caution (Treats to Tempt You Book 1), by Serenity Woods. (Still free?)

"I loved this book. It was a sweet love story with a little mystery woven in. The excellent editing impressed me. The author did a great job describing the characters as well as the setting. I could have used a glossary to explain some of the New Zealand terms, but it read fine without explanation. It was important to me that the book was a stand alone story with a real ending, although the epilogue did entice the reader to get the next book in the series." -- Amazon reviewer

Treats to Tempt You, Book 1.

An enemies-to-lovers fun and sexy romance.

Tasha Wilde has spotted the perfect site for the Treats to Tempt You confectionery shop she’s planning to run with her best friend, Maisey. It’s the ideal size and location, right on the waterfront in Doubtless Bay, New Zealand. The only fly in the melted chocolate is Maisey’s brother, Kole. He wants the shop for his photography business, and he’s about to sign the lease.

Tasha and Kole Graham have trod the wafer-thin line between friends and enemies since they were teenagers. Privately, she acknowledges Kole has grown up into a fine figure of a man. Okay, to be honest, he’s so sexy he often dismantles the speech center of her brain. But he’s still the most irritating guy on Earth.

Kole tries to think of Tasha as just his sister’s best friend, but it’s getting harder and harder. Literally. And he’s having trouble hiding it. So when their friends suggest a bet with the shop as the prize, and it means he can get his hands on Tasha, he’s quick to agree. The Shakespearean-style scheme? To get the other person to fall in love with them. In eight days.

Both are confident their attraction is only physical. Both are going to get into trouble. But who will win the bet on Midsummer night?

Flirting With Fire (Hometown Heroes Book 2), by Kyra Jacobs. (Still 0.99?)

Save $2 today with this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"A great novel for kick-back time on the weekend. It’s fun, flirty and riddled with really nice people. We get the story through the eyes of Liz and she generally is seeing the best is people so while Bunni is a bit of a jerk, Liz tries to understand her disappointment in losing out on a job to Liz and not wanting anyone working on her boyfriend but herself. While Torrunn is a bit of a douchebag but he does good for the community and while there’s an indication that he doesn’t treat his girlfriends in a serious nature, he’s generally a good guy and the platonic byplay may be flirt but its friendly without artifice. “Flirting with Fire” is an easy, fun and sweet read about people that the reader really wants to win." -- Amazon reviewer

Look, touch, but don’t fall in love.

Massage therapist Liz Williams lives by one rule: never date a client. A rule she’s never had trouble following until she lays hands on fireman playboy Torrunn MacKay. Trouble is, Liz’s sexy new client is dating her arch-rival at work…and has a strange habit of appearing just before the fire alarm sounds.

Firefighter Torrunn MacKay has got it made: killer job, downtown condo with a view, and hot blonde girlfriend with no more desire to tie the knot than he has. But the surprise attraction he feels toward his new masseuse is threatening to change all that. And what’s with the string of fires that seem to follow her everywhere?

Can Liz mind her table manners and keep Torrunn at arms’ length? Will Torrunn put his commitment fears aside to keep Liz safe? More than hearts will be in jeopardy when the two start Flirting with Fire.

Charlotte police officer Jordan Monroe is used to being in control. Ever since his father died, he has provided for his mother and sisters and even hired his two brothers-in-law to help run his successful construction company. On a chance business trip, however, he meets the one person who throws his life into a whirlwind--Jaynee.

Jaynee has lived a tragic life and has sworn off all men. That is until a rugged southern gentleman lands in her seating area, refusing to take no for an answer. From the moment they meet, Jordan sweeps her off her feet, assuring her that happiness exists. But can she really escape her past?

Five years later, Jordan finds Jaynee on their back porch with a gunshot wound to the head. While Jaynee lies in a coma, Jordan has to go back to their beginning and figure out what went wrong. Did he push his wife to the edge, or has her past come back to haunt them?

Kindle Fire Free App of the Day: World of Goo

Today's Free App of the Day is World of Goo
Originally $1.99


Today's Free App of the Day is another of the 40 free apps that have been available since yesterday. This was previously the Free App of the Day on December 24, 2012. 

It is an award winning physics-based game with attractive graphics. You must build a structure to a pipe so that a specified number of your little goo balls (you also use them in construction) can climb up the structure to the pipe. The goal is to use as few goo balls in construction as possible as you get bonuses for goo balls over the set number for that level. I really like this game--and it gets quite challenging. It's a good repeat as a Free App of the Day.

709 of 844 reviews are four stars and above.

These apps are compatible with the original Fire and with my Fire HDXs. To tell if an app works for your Fire HD or other Android device registered to your Amazon account, click on the above link and look on the right side of the web page.  Amazon will tell you if it will work with your registered device.

Have fun!

"Cadets 2: The Ship of the Gods," by Edward Miller

Book 2 of Edward Miller's high-flying "Cadets" space adventure was recently released, and "Cadets 2: The Ship of the Gods" has already picked up over 30 solid reader reviews. Pick up a copy and follow Amanda, Ryan, and their cadet classmates as they struggle to protect an imperiled Earth.

Cadets: 2 The Ship of the Gods, by Edward Miller
Price: $2.99
239 pages, with a 4.5-star rating from 34 reviews

"Great read! The story flows easily from the first book. Urgently working to save the planets the joint forces work to unravel the ancient mysteries that are their only hope, you follow the trials that must be overcome along with the development of lasting friendships both personally and militarily. Good choice for readers of many ages." -- Amazon reviewer

Six months have passed since United Earth Defense Fleet (UEDF) cadets Ryan Thompson, Amanda Williamson, and their senior class saved earth from destruction at the hands of the Altarrans. It seems like yesterday that they learned startling truths about the strange invaders from Altarra, and undertook the adventure of a lifetime.

As the cadets now prepare for graduation, Amanda is haunted by vivid nightmares of another alien race, this one much more deadly, and with a mission to annihilate all life within our galaxy. Worse, she’s having mysterious blackouts and apparent visits from an ancient entity, who warns that the Karang are coming.

With the help of their former enemies, the Altarrans, Ryan, Amanda and the entire UEDF must hold off the Karang against all odds, while searching for a long-hidden, legendary weapon known as the Ship of the Gods, which may be the only slim hope for Earth’s survival.
