Free and bargain books! (Tuesday Feb 5)

Here is today's selection of free and bargain Kindle books!

Why Quantum Physicists Don't Get Fat, by Gregory Kuhn. (Still free?)

A highly-rated book that challenges you to change your thinking about how to lose weight. Free today.

"Greg Kuhn finds a new, interesting way to tackle the subject of weight loss. The book is an easy, delightful read with many new, interesting ideas and concepts. I don't believe the subject of dieting has ever been apprached this way. Success can be found through the power of your mind and a little "rocket fuel."" -- Amazon reviewer

Finally say goodbye to unwanted weight!

1. Have you tried to lose weight only to wind up gaining it all back (and more)?

2. Have you repeatedly dieted and been unsuccessful at losing your unwanted weight?

3. Are you tired of trying to hide your weight gains from family and friends because weight loss plans just don't seem to work for you?

If you answered "yes" to any of those questions, you're no different than millions of Americans; you've been frustrated by your seeming inability to lose your unwanted weight. It might surprise you, though, to learn that the specific diets you've tried aren't the problem. Would it surprise you further to learn that YOU definitely aren't the problem either?

The problem is not the weight loss plans and neither is it you. The problem is the science! The diets you've tried have failed you because they are based on old, outdated science. Science that has, in fact, been replaced, right under your nose, by an amazingly accurate and incredibly reliable one called quantum physics.

Why Quantum Physicists Don't Get Fat will teach you, in simple, everyday language, to unlock the awesome power of quantum physics to inject any weight loss plan with nitroboosting rocket fuel. You'll quickly find that the great-feeling, slender body you've dreamed of is just around the corner!

The Chronicles of Marr-nia (Short Stories Starring Barbara Marr), by Karen Cantwell. (Still free?)

Part of the Barbara Marr mystery series, this book is a set of humorous short stories that follow Barbara's escapades - in mystery and in everyday life. Free today!

"A really fun collection of short stories! I enjoyed the first Barbara Marr story and was quite happy to see this title published. The first was a full novel and was a very fun read. This, on the other hand, contains multiple shorts. Most involve Barbara again plus a couple others. The two non-Barbaras had a different flair to them and served well to show different writing styles." -- Amazon Top 500 reviewer

Includes the laugh-out-loud mystery short story, “Missing Impossible.” When Barb decides to tag along on a PI job with Colt, things don’t go quite as planned, and she finds herself in yet another sticky situation. (A between-the-novels short)

Other short stories: “Taming the Hulk,” “Top Lawn,” and “The Road to Shangri-La.” Also, just for fun, the author has added two BONUS shorts with different themes. All-in-all - a collection sure to entertain.

122 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 24 reviews.



The Great Gift (A Western Romance Novel), by MISTY WRIGHT. (Still free?)

Enjoy romance with a western theme? This one is free today!

"'The Great Gift' by Misty Wright is very decent Romantic Western that takes place in Australia. The story is not just about how Alyssa and Kent met, it involves the secret behind the Oasis, and interesting resolution to a family conflict and it does have rather original ending. The prose is competent. The plot is interesting enough to keep a fun of Romantic Westerns busy for a couple of hours. 4 1/2 stars." -- Amazon Top 500 reviewer

26 year old Alyssa is fed up with being mistreated by men after a few bad relationships. She needs a break and just found the perfect opportunity. She's decided to go to work as a jillaroo, a female trainee farm worker, on a cattle station in the Australian outback named The Oasis.

There she meets a cowboy named Kent. He's a rodeo champion and handsome to boot. Together they make a bet. As time goes on, they both want out, but neither wants to be first.

Through a series of mishap and adventures from the city to a fast-flowing river in the outback where Kent must save Alyssa from drowning, and she begins to have feelings for him despite her better judgment.

Alyssa is a city girl at heart but as the longer she spends in the outback, the more enticing it becomes. The place intrigues her to the point that the excitement of city nightlife is waning. Then, unexpectedly, she saves The Oasis.

Despite her past experiences, love is growing between Alyssa and Kent. But then Brandt, Alyssa's obsessive ex-boyfriend, tracks her down.

Can Kent save her one last time? What will she do? Find out the answer in this western romance, guaranteed to be a fantastic trip through the Australian outback filled with danger and adventure.

Misty Wright is an emerging author in the contemporary fiction genre. One reviewer claims THE GREAT GIFT is "contemporary romance at its best!" Western fiction is rising in popularity again and so is historical romance. You can find the best of both genres in The Great Gift, perhaps best described as an historical western romance. This book is clean with no explicit scenes, making it an appropriate read for young adults who may be tired of the usual fare in YA romance.

Buy THE GREAT GIFT now or download the sample today, if you love this great western fiction read!

Things Go Wrong For Me (when life hands you lemons, add vodka), by Rodney Lacroix. (Still free?)

This highly-rated, irreverent memoir is full of the self-deprecating humor of Rodney Lacroix. Free today!

"I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard my dog woke up and turned around to see what was wrong with me... which is exactly what happened as I guffawed over this book. I just finished reading Things Go Wrong for Me and it's vintage Moooooog! Rodney Lacroix, (aka Moooooog, aka Midget Man of Steel,) is the politically incorrect humorist and blogger who can make you forget all your ideals at the drop of a double-entendre... because he's that funny. Now his self-deprecating tales of mis-spent youth, pratfalls of parenting and adventures in post-divorce dating are available in print for all to read." -- Amazon reviewer

Things Go Wrong For Me (when life hands you lemons, add vodka) is a memoir of sorts, a roadmap of Rodney Lacroix's haywire life thus far. From his childhood, through the raising of his own kids, to his vasectomy and post-divorce world ... this book is more than just a culmination of outrageous stories woven into a cohesive narrative, it’s a testament for the "little guy."

In this case, literally. Rodney is 5’3”. He’s very little. Almost tiny. Bank tellers offer him lollipops. He makes holiday money wearing green stockings and fake ears.

But even though he’s small in stature, his stories and the laughs that accompany them are definitely BIG.

There's no doubt, if you enjoy snorting milk through your nose, and you're drinking milk right now ... you're going to love this book.

244 pages, with a 4.9-star rating from 64 reviews.



Wraith, by Angel Lawson. (Still free?)

This haunting paranormal romance is highly-rated, and free today! 40 five-star reviews.

"What I love most about this book is the internal dialogue of the main character, Jane. She's funny, snarky and observant, and her reactions to the world that spins around her are honest and true to a teenager battling over-concerned parents, a phantom best friend, and the handsome high school troublemaker. We know from the start that Evan isn't your ordinary spectre. He can manipulate objects, including Jane's hair, which he pulls in class, causing attention she doesn't want. He's also very tight-lipped about his past. Connor doesn't want to talk about his past, either. He wants to talk about Evan, and although Jane doesn't trust him, she's fascinated by him, and thrown off-kilter by his interest. (And the chemistry between the two is utterly delicious!) I'm hoping a sequel is in the works; Jane's inner voice is so fresh and real, I want to read more!" --

Freak. Weird. Crazy. These are the names tossed around seventeen-year old Jane Watts by her fellow classmates. But things aren’t always as they seem. Sometimes there’s a reason for talking to yourself in the hallway at school.

Jane struggles with adjusting to her new home and school after an abrupt move. She wants one thing in life—to be like everyone else at school, but that’s hard to do when you’re the new kid. But she does manage to make one friend, Evan—he’s sixteen, charming, and protective. Everything a girl could want in a best friend…with one minor caveat.

He's dead.

Caught somewhere between life and death, Evan is tied to Jane and the living world unable to complete the journey to the other side. She thinks he’s here to be her friend, to take care of her, and that’s why no one can see or hear him.

That is until a new boy shows up at school after a rumored stretch in Juvie. Connor can see Evan and he’s not convinced the ghost is being completely honest. From his own experience ghosts tend to need something from the humans they connect to and Evan, despite his arguments isn’t any different.

Jane is resentful of Connor’s intrusion but realizes soon enough he’s right. Evan has secrets about his past and not only did his life end tragically but members of his family are still in danger. Jane must face her fears and battle Evan’s human demons to free both of them.

Book 2 of the Wraith Series, Shadow Bound will be released in December 2012.

The Plantation, by Stella Samiotou Fitzsimons. (Still free?)

Highly-rated dystopian Sci-Fi... free today!

"I loved the plot and the characters. The writing is exceptional, dealing with the eternal themes of loneliness and trying to fit in in a very original way. The main character - Freya - is one of the most vivid, intelligent portrayals of a young woman ever. She's strong and weak at the same time and she grows into maturity slowly but unmistakably. I love her interactions with Finn and Damian. There's a lot of action in the book as well as a lot of introspection. The mutant army -Sliman - are terrifying. If you like intelligence and emotional power in your young adult dystopias, this is definitely a book you should read." -- Mary Libero, Amazon reviewer

A century has passed since they arrived. Human history has been erased. Children are enslaved on Alien plantations. Some have heard whispers of the existence of a rebel band of humans who roam free in the forests. Most slaves dare not speak of the rebels for fear the mutant guards will grab and make an example of them.

Seventeen-year-old Freya is pulled away in the night not by the mutants, but by her old friend Finn, to join the Saviors, the mythic band of rebel teens. Her bliss fades when she discovers she is the only Savior without a special ability. She is the odd one out, slowly pushing Finn away, defying Damian, the leader of the Saviors, and antagonizing the fierce and beautiful Daphne. In her despair Freya reaches deep within to discover a dark destiny, a truth so heavy it threatens to destroy her.

Look for "The Dark Legion" (Book 2 of The Plantation) on February 15, 2013!

196 pages, with a 4.6-star rating from 10 reviews.



They Shall See God, by Athol Dickson. (Still free?)

A Christian-themed thriller, highly-rated, and free today.

"The Christian market sorely needs more quality suspense novels, and Dickson's excellent offering makes a solid contribution to the genre. Rabbi Ruth Gold and lapsed Protestant Kate Flint share a hideous legacy from their childhood: together they stumbled upon a murder scene, then helped incarcerate the man they saw holding a knife by the victim. Now he's been released after 25 years in prison, and a bizarre string of events mimicking stories from the biblical book of Genesis unfolds in present-day New Orleans. The writing is original, with unexpected touches of humor, and contains enough plot twists to keep the reader guessing until the final pages." -- Publisher's Weekly

Little Katie was a Christian. Her very best friend Ruth was a Jew. The girls’ eyewitness testimony sent a bad man to Louisiana's infamous Angola prison. 25 years later, Ruth has become an embittered Rabbi, Kate is a lonely widow, the bad man is out, and people are dying in the strangest of ways.

Torn apart in childhood by animosities beyond their understanding, Kate and Ruth can no longer elude the past’s unfinished business. To survive, these very different women must reach out to each other in spite of the mayhem and mistrust that shrouds one vital truth: sometimes the most dangerous of enemies crouches just inside the human heart.

"The writing... sparkles. Dickson tells a fascinating tale that incorporates murder, mystery, love, fanatical obsession, Jewish and Christian dialogue, and the depths of relationships... It'll have you tightly in its grip until the final pages." (Eric Wilson, author of novelizations for Fireproof and Facing the Giants)

"Hooked, hooked and hooked!... A compelling story with profound faith implications... Take short a great ride through the final pages." (Sigmund Brouwer, author of the Canary List)

464 pages, with a 4.8-star rating from 20 reviews.



Talisman Of El, by Alecia Stone. (Still free?)

Fantasy fiction, free today!

"Brilliant! Talisman of El is part fantasy, part mythology and pure adventure. Alecia Stone weaves a strong and passionate journey that follows Derkein, Charlie, Alex and Richmond on a whirlwind journey to the depths of earths-core, to a new dimension called, Arcadia, where Charlie will find out his true fate in this world. Filled with gripping imagination, animated characters and cunning creativity, this story will take you on a heart pounding and fascinating adventure. I had so much fun reading this book. I felt truly invested with these characters right from minute one. I loved how easy it was to get lost with them and discover hidden truths along the way. I loved the spark these characters had with one another and that there was even a touch of romance to bring hope to future books. All in all, I really enjoyed this book. It's a promising start to a bright new series that I can't wait to continue! Fit for all ages. This is a story worth reading!" -- Amazon reviewer

WHAT IF YOUR WHOLE LIFE WAS A LIE'

One Planet.

No one would believe him ... because it was a dream. Just like the one he had four years ago - the day before his dad died.
