Out of Time: A Time Travel Mystery, by Monique Martin. (Still free?)

Let's start off with one of my favorite reads from the past year! I really enjoyed this story, and have since bought the rest of Monique's books. This first book is free for a limited time.

"Monique Martin has a master's touch with an adventure yarn... a great read that will sweep away men and women alike." --Steve Windwalker of Kindle Nation Daily

"'Out of Time' is a delightful, sexy romp back in time to the 1920s...This book won't let you put it down... carve out enough time to read it through to its exciting conclusion." --Debra L. Martin of Two Ends of the Pen


Professor Simon Cross has spent his life searching for evidence of vampires and avoiding emotional entanglements. When a mysterious accident transports Simon and his assistant, Elizabeth West, back in time, Simon finally finds both the proof that he's been looking for, and the romance that he hasn't.

Simon and Elizabeth's developing relationship is tested by demons real and imagined. In 1920s Manhattan, there are more than mobsters vying for power in the city's speakeasies. When the local kingpin with a dark secret sets his sights on Elizabeth, day to day struggles become a fight for their very lives.

Don't miss the other books in the Out of Time Series -- "When the Walls Fell" and the newly released "Fragments".

The War Gate, by Chris Stevenson. (Still free?)

Here's a paranormal mystery with elements of time travel. Published last month, it has only one Amazon review but the quality of the sample compelled us to dig into this intriguing story. Available for you to try for free, today and tomorrow only!

"This was a solidly written tale with a trace of fantasy and complex thought used in defining the concept of leaping from one time gate to the next—excellent job of structuring." - Terrie G, Bitten by Books

"The War Gate is a captivating book. Mystery, magic and the paranormal blend together in a perfect mix. I would thoroughly recommend this book to fantasy enthusiasts who also like romance. - Orcid, Aurora Reviews


Through a miraculous conception, Avalon Labrador must give birth to herself before she is executed, to solve her husband's murder and her own wrongful conviction.

When the reincarnated Avy Labrador is kicked out of her stepfather's house on her 18th birthday, she has no idea that the man who raised her framed her mother to cover his murder so he could acquire a major software empire. Now, years later, with the help of her magician boyfriend, Sebastian, Avy is about to discover that her birth was otherworldly and for a purpose. The ancient Roman God Janus was so appalled by the heinous murder of Tom Labrador by his brother Drake that he opened up a War Gate.

Avy has received half of her mother's soul light and half of a God's essence. Her mission is to put the real killer behind bars. The only catch: she must learn to Gate-Walk. She soon finds out that she is a drunk driver on the space/time continuum super highway.

Just when she believes she has too much on her plate to contend with, she learns that she's pegged the wrong man as the killer - her boyfriend is not who he appears to be - and Janus, the so-called God of new beginnings, doorways and gates, just might be the biggest conman and liar she has ever met.

The War Gate has a heavy mystery structure, as well as paranormal/magic and romance elements.

Stone Cold Charade (A Stone Family Novel), by Kathleen Royce. (Still free?)

This contemporary romance is the first in a planned series about the Stone family. It's yours free until end of day tomorrow.

"This book is a must read if you're looking for a fun romance! Every girl hopes for a "knight in shining armor" to protect her, and who doesn't have that crazy relative who will stick his nose where it doesn't belong, and thinks he is justified in his actions? I can't wait to see what Max has planned for his three other grandaughters. The characters are multi-faceted and the plot is intriguing until the very end." -- Tonya Pomeroy, Amazon reviewer


Born into a family of immense wealth, Alexandra Stone challenges her legacy by leading a secret double life as an international superstar. Escaping hounding reporters, she is stunned to discover her past has tracked her down in the form of her teenage nemesis that is responsible for the enigma she now is. With so many lies between them can she keep track of them all?


Ex-special ops commander Ty Philips, summoned to handle the threat of rustlers, suspects the problem Maximillion wants him to handle is his spirited granddaughter. He launches his own personal mission to get her in his bed if only temporarily. 

But, the danger to her and the ranch jeopardizes everything, as does his conscience at seducing the boss's granddaughter yet again.
 

Struggling to rekindle the passion that burned in their past, they set ablaze a raging new path for both of them in the present. Each afraid that their own secrets could destroy what they've started, causing it to go up in smoke. Could they handle the inferno and the consequences of igniting it?

World War ll London Blitz Diary (A Woman's Revelations Enduring War and Marriage) (1939-1940), by Ruby Alice Side-Thompson. (Still free?)

This is the actual diary of Ruby Thompson(1884-1970), an ordinary woman living during the World War ll London Blitz bombing blasts.

The book gives a vivid glimpse of how life must go on even in Britain-at-war as she deals with health issues, in-laws, censors, rationing and fashion.

A popular highlight from the book: "Am I ashamed of what I have written? No, I am not ashamed. I try to state the truth. I try to find the truth of things for myself; that is, as they matter for myself. I am not a happy woman. I could have been a happy woman. I just happened to have married the wrong man, a very common tragedy."

This one is definitely going on to my read-next list!

"A personal story of a mother trying to keep her life together along with simple survival, "World War II" is a choice pick, not to be overlooked." -- Margaret's Shelf


Imagine yourself seeing hundreds of Messerschmitt war planes overhead and hearing the explosion of bombs being dropped around you. Wondering if this is the day one will fall on your house.

Ruby Side Thompson's personal diary was written during the terrifying World War Two London Blitz. Her diary is a true and detailed account of what she experienced during that horrific time. The diary chronicles Ruby's struggle to survive in the midst of a horrendous war, where London is bombed nightly.

Ruby speaks candidly about her unhappiness enduring an unsatisfactory marriage. She was the mother of seven sons, two of whom were enlisted in the R.A.F. One of which became an amputee as the result of hitting a land mine and the other son was captured and sent to a concentration camp as a prisoner of war. Her tale is a mix of the commonplace and the historic as seen through her eyes.

The diary was an outlet for Ruby's thoughts and feelings that could not be spoken out loud; however, in publishing the diary it gives readers an honest and unfiltered look back at a time that may have been long since forgotten.

Join Ruby on her trying journey as she tries to keep her life and family together during this difficult time in history.

    1. I like in the London Blitz Diary that her grand-daughter included images of the actual handwriting of the diary. You can just imagine her writing those entries in the midst of all of the perils of WWII.
