Hearts Aflame by Johanna Lindsey ($0.99)

Quote:
Product Description
Beautiful and defiant, Kristen Haardrad meets the hot, longing gaze of Royce, Thane of Wyndhurst, with icy fury - vowing never to be enslaved by the powerful Saxon lord who holds her captive.

She is his enemy and his prize - a wild and lusty hellion to be tamed by her dashing conqueror's kiss. But though maddened with desire for the golden-haired Viking temptress, noble Royce, in conscience, cannot force his exquisite prisoner to submit. For only Kristen's willing surrender can quench the blistering fires that sear his tormented soul - and heal a heart consumed by passion with a soothing balm of rapturous, unconditional love.
Deadly Angel by Fred Rosen ($1.99)

Quote:
Product Description
An astonishing true story of bizarre love and lethal obsession in America's last frontier.

Mechele Hughes came to Wasilla, Alaska (pop. 4200), looking for a new life and easy money. As an exotic dancer at the Great Alaskan Bush Company in nearby Anchorage, she was soon earning thousands a night—and getting expensive gifts from admiring male clients. Three in particular fell under her spell. Each claimed to be engaged to her . . . and they all lived with her together in the same house. But in May 1996, the bullet-ridden body of Kent "T.T." Leppink, a local fisherman and one of her fiancés, was discovered in a wooded area ninety miles away—possibly slain by suitor number two, John Carlin III, at the stripper's urging.

Ten years would elapse before the arrests and trials of Mechele Hughes Linehan and John Carlin III. Was the real Mechele a murderess, a ruthless sexual manipulator as the prosecution claimed, killing for insurance money—or the loving wife and mother she had since become, dedicated to children, animals, and charitable causes?
There But for the Grace of God by Fred Rosen ($1.99)

Quote:
Product Description
They stared into the faces of pure evil . . . and survived!

Ted Bundy . . . Jeffrey Dahmer . . .

David "Son of Sam" Berkowitz . . . Dennis Rader, the BTK Killer . . .

These are some of the names that strike terror into even the bravest of hearts. Human monsters, they preyed upon the unsuspecting, freely feeding their terrible hungers. Their crimes were unspeakable, as they maimed, tortured, killed, and killed again, leaving so many dead in their bloody wake. But somehow, astonishingly, seven would-be victims fell into the clutches of the century's worst serial killers—and escaped death through courage, divine providence, or just plain luck.

This is the remarkable true story of those who lived.
When Satan Wore a Cross by Fred Rosen ($1.99)

Quote:
Product Description
In 1980 in Toledo, Ohio—on one of the holiest days of the church calendar—the body of a nun was discovered in the sacristy of a hospital chapel. Seventy-one-year-old Sister Margaret Ann had been strangled and stabbed, her corpse arranged in a shameful and stomach-churning pose. But the police's most likely suspect was inexplicably released and the investigation was quietly buried. Despite damning evidence, Father Gerald Robinson went free.

Twenty-three years later the priest's name resurfaced in connection with a bizarre case of satanic ritual and abuse. It prompted investigators to exhume the remains of the slain nun in search of the proof left behind that would indelibly mark Father Robinson as Sister Margaret Ann's killer: the sign of the Devil.

When Satan Wore a Cross is a shocking true story of official cover-ups, madness, murder and lies—and of an unholy human monster who disguised himself in holy garb.

Moon Dance (Vampire for Hire #1) by J.R. Rain

Quote:
Product Description
Mother, wife, private investigator...vampire. Six years ago federal agent Samantha Moon was the perfect wife and mother, your typical soccer mom with the minivan and suburban home. Then the unthinkable happens, an attack that changes her life forever. And forever is a very long time for a vampire. Now the world at large thinks Samantha has developed a rare skin disease, a disease which forces her to quit her day job and stay out of the light of the sun. Now working the night shift as a private investigator, Samantha is hired by Kingsley Fulcrum to investigate the murder attempt on his life, a horrific scene captured on TV and seen around the country. But as the case unfolds, Samantha discovers Kingsley isn't exactly what he appears to be; after all, there is a reason why he survived five shots to the head.

Let's Play Ball by Linda Gould

Quote:
Product Description
Miranda is a bright woman with an important government job, a nice home, and a prominent lawyer husband. Her fraternal twin sister, Jessica, is a sportswriter who has spent years sacrificing her social life and conventional career prospects to establish a magazine. However, Miranda envies Jessica's seemingly perfect relationship with her Cuban-born, baseball-playing fiancé, Manny. She can't help comparing their exciting love story to her own deteriorating relationship with her husband, Tommy.

When Manny disappears, his ex-wife, Guadalupe, takes responsibility in a televised address from Cuba. But as the weeks pass, Jessica's wide-ranging suspicions include baseball owners Johnson Carter and Javy Castilla, who seemed to have benefited from the crime, and two of Manny's "redneck" teammates, Wilson Boyd and Petie Jansen, who are members of a local militia-style group. Miranda's and Tommy's prior friendship with Boyd and Jansen also raises Jessica's ire.

Sensing that everyone involved in investigating the crime, including the local police, the FBI, and even Jessica, is headed down the wrong track, Miranda determines to uncover the truth herself--no matter how risky this proves to be, or who is exposed in the process.

H When Hell is the Favourable Option...... by David C Jaundrell is free again

Quote:
Product Description
You will find the H series of thrillers different. The first is different, but the others will be like nothing you have ever read before......H is the nickname for James James who we join as he starts on his road, building a business that will take him far away from his past....H deals with all obstacles, including his enemies, with ruthless determination. The inventiveness with which he disposes of his rivals features largely and the brutality can at times be extreme. However H has a natural empathy for the weak and vulnerable which provides the motivation for much of his brutality and cruelty. This caring side of H endears him to Benshima, an equally intriguing personalityThe H books abound with an amazing cast of colourful, rounded but often deeply flawed characters; and throughout a strand of dark, ironic humour that keeps you involved until the very last page......Or as one reader summed it up......"An everyday story of high life, murder, gambling, revenge, business and finance with a dash of sex, rape, buggery and thuggery thrown in"

Jay, a young musician, who is equally startled to meet Mimi.

Shark Girl by Kelly Bingham ($1.99)

On a sunny day in June, at the beach with her mom and brother, fifteen-year-old Jane Arrowood went for a swim. And then everything — absolutely everything — changed. Now she’s counting down the days until she returns to school with her fake arm, where she knows kids will whisper, "That’s her — that’s Shark Girl," as she passes. In the meantime there are only questions: Why did this happen? Why her? What about her art? What about her life? In this striking first novel, Kelly Bingham uses poems, letters, telephone conversations, and newspaper clippings to look unflinchingly at what it’s like to lose part of yourself - and to summon the courage it takes to find yourself again.
Thirsty by M.T. Anderson ($1.99)

So while his hometown performs an ancient ritual that keeps Tch’muchgar, the Vampire Lord, locked in another world, Chris desperately tries to save himself from his own vampiric fate.

A Drowned Maiden's Hair: A Melodrama by Laura Amy Schlitz ($1.99)

Quote:
Product Description
Maud Flynn is known at the orphanage for her impertinence. So when the charming Miss Hyacinth chooses her to take home, the girl is pleased but baffled, until she learns of her new role: helping to stage elaborate séances for bereaved patrons. As Maud is drawn deeper into the deception, playing the "secret child," she is torn between her need to please and her growing conscience. It takes a shocking betrayal to make clear just how heartless her so-called guardians are. Filled with fascinating details of turn-of-the-century spiritualism and page-turning suspense, this novel from Newbery Medalist Laura Amy Schlitz features a feisty heroine whom readers will not soon forget.
Another Faust by Daniel Nayeri and Dina Nayeri ($1.99)

Quote:
Product Description
A devilish debut by a brother-sister team invites us into the world of the elite Marlowe School, where some gifted students are having a hell of a year.

One night, in cities all across Europe, five children vanish — only to appear, years later, at an exclusive New York party with a strange and elegant governess. Rumor and mystery follow the Faust teenagers to the city’s most prestigious high school, where they soar to suspicious heights with the help of their benefactor’s extraordinary "gifts." But as the students claw their way up — reading minds, erasing scenes, stopping time, stealing power, seducing with artificial beauty — they start to suffer the sideeffects of their own addictions. And as they make further deals with the devil, they uncover secrets more shocking than their most unforgivable sins. At once chilling and wickedly satirical, this contemporary reimagining of the Faustian bargain is a compelling tale of ambition, consequences, and ultimate redemption.
The Magician's Elephant by Kate DiCamillo and Yoko Tanaka ($1.99)

Quote:
Product Description

In a highly awaited new novel, Kate DiCamillo conjures a haunting fable about trusting the unexpected — and making the extraordinary come true.

What if? Why not? Could it be?

When a fortuneteller's tent appears in the market square of the city of Baltese, orphan Peter Augustus Duchene knows the questions that he needs to ask: Does his sister still live? And if so, how can he find her? The fortuneteller's mysterious answer (an elephant! An elephant will lead him there!) sets off a chain of events so remarkable, so impossible, that you will hardly dare to believe it’s true. With atmospheric illustrations by fine artist Yoko Tanaka, here is a dreamlike and captivating tale that could only be narrated by Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamillo. In this timeless fable, she evokes the largest of themes — hope and belonging, desire and compassion — with the lightness of a magician’s touch.
Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta ($3.49)

Quote:
Product Description
Finnikin was only a child during the five days of the unspeakable, when the royal family of Lumatere were brutally murdered, and an imposter seized the throne. Now a curse binds all who remain inside Lumatere’s walls, and those who escaped roam the surrounding lands as exiles, persecuted and despairing, dying by the thousands in fever camps. In a narrative crackling with the tension of an imminent storm, Finnikin, now on the cusp on manhood, is compelled to join forces with an arrogant and enigmatic young novice named Evanjalin, who claims that her dark dreams will lead the exiles to a surviving royal child and a way to pierce the cursed barrier and regain the land of Lumatere. But Evanjalin’s unpredictable behavior suggests that she is not what she seems—and the startling truth will test Finnikin’s faith not only in her, but in all he knows to be true about himself and his destiny.

Kaplan New GRE: An Introduction to the GRE Revised General Test, by Kaplan Test Prep (£0.71 UK/ free DE), is free in the German Kindle store only. Not available at all in the US store.

Book Description
The GRE is changing in August 2011!

What can you expect from the GRE revised General Test? Should you take the test now or wait? These questions and more are answered in this introduction to the new exam.

In the most sweeping changes to the test in its history, every aspect of the GRE General Test will change in 2011:

Longer test: With more sections and questions focused on reasoning and critical thinking, the test will now be longer than the current GRE.

New scoring rubric: With a 130–170 score scale in 1-point increments (vs. 200–800 in 10-point increments on the current GRE), it will be more challenging to differentiate your score from the competition.

New test experience: The Multi-Stage Test format, a new form of computer-based functionality, will allow users to move back and forth within a specific subject.

New and different question types: Every section will have new question types. In: More reading comprehension and data analysis questions; Out: Antonyms and analogies.

What does all of this mean for you and your graduate school aspirations? Kaplan will walk you through the changes and help you make decisions that will enable you to become a strong graduate school applicant when the time is right.

What would you give up for the people you love?

When Megan Taylor, a single mother and artist living on Cape Cod, receives the shocking news that her cancer has returned, she's faced with the most difficult decision she's ever had to make. The love she has for her daughter, Olivia, and her closest friends will be stretched and frayed.

Megan's illness reawakens her best friend, Holly Townsend's, torment of a long-held secret and years of betrayal. How does one choose between a daughter and a life-long best friend? Can the secret she has been keeping be revealed after years of lying without destroying everyone in its wake?

Meanwhile, fourteen-year-old Olivia's world is falling apart right before her eyes, and there's nothing she can do about it. She finds herself acting in ways she cannot even begin to understand. When her internal struggles turn to dangerous behavior, even the paranormal connection she shares with her mother might not be enough to save her - her life will hang in the balance.

Megan's Way is a journey of self discovery and heartfelt emotions, exploring the depth of the mother-daughter bond, and the intricacies of friendship.

Two and a Half Dead Men(For fans of Jim Butcher and the TV show Supernatural) (The Grym Brothers) by Jason Krumbine

Quote:
Product Description
People die every day.

But not all of the souls can or want to move onto the afterlife.

That’s where the brothers Thane and Mort Grym come in.

Thane and Mort are bounty hunters for dead souls. They inherited the job from their father and they’re two of the best in town.

But when there’s a double homicide at the Kirkland Motel the Grym brothers end up with more than they bargained for. In a world without vampires, zombies or the undead, one of their bounties might not be as dead as he’s supposed to be.
The Secret in the Love of God by Osman Nuri Topbas

Quote:
Product Description
The Secret of Love was penned to engrave hearts with the love of Allah and His Prophet, through words reflecting a love of the kind straight from the author’s heart. It consists of two main chapters.

The first chapter deals with themes that manifest the love of Prophet Muhammad –blessings and peace be upon him-, drawing attention to the affect of this love on each creation. To give an example, under a title inspired from a date log weeping from the separation of the Prophet –blessings and peace be upon him-, it elaborates the love towards him experienced by what is on the surface an inanimate object. The chapter then goes on to dwell on issues constructive of Muslim character; like insan-i kamil, staying on the path of uprightness, being in the company of the righteous and spirit and body, laying emphasis thereby on the balance of life a Muslim ought to maintain.

The second chapter voices the way in which the righteous led their lives, their lifelong commitment and service to Islam and their love and devotion, aspects sure to provide an example for others.

The book teaches us the way to love the Beauty of all Beauties, instead of being deceived by beauties which are only temporary.

In an eloquent style, The Secret of Love serves to remind us of the truth that only Allah, glory unto Him, is the Absolute Beauty.

Reining In (The Network) by Dawn Judd

Quote:
Product Description
Khalida is a five thousand year old vampire. As technology and national security become more prominent, it becomes harder and harder for her to hide her secret from the world. In order to remain undetected by humans, she creates a network of people whose only job is to hide her identity.

But these aren't just any group of people. They are the best of the best, brought to her by chance; tied to her by a bond stronger than any she's ever known before. Being discovered by the human world isn't Khalida's only concern, however. She has made enemies in the vampire world.

When she makes a mistake that exposes her to those who want to take revenge on her, she is tossed into a whirlwind of death and destruction. She has to find out who is killing the humans who have become her family, and save those who remain.

Khalida has spent her entire life trying to protect the people she loves, but ultimately, she will have to decide between the ghosts of her past and the people who have put their lives on the line for her. Her decision may haunt her for the rest of her life.

This book offers 25 devotions for each day from December 1st to December 25th, Christmas Day... the day Christians celebrate that God's purpose wass finally revealed in the coming of the savior, Jesus Christ.

Each devotion traces the heritage of Jesus through the stories and prophecies of the Old Testament.

These daily Advent devotions are written in two versions (one for children and one version for adults) including a scripture, a story & commentary, questions to ask, a prayer, and a song.

Return to Pearl Island, Bonus Chapters by Julie Ortolon

Quote:
Product Description
Dear Reader,

This ebook is my gift to fans of the Pearl Island trilogy who own the stories in print. When I released Falling for You, Lead Me On, and Don't Tempt Me as ebooks, I added a bonus chapter to each one so fans can see what’s happening today at the Pearl Island Inn.

If you haven’t read the series, this ebook can read as three short stories to give you a taste of this award-winning series. Titles include Falling for You, Lead Me On, and Don't Tempt Me.

Best,
Julie Ortolon

Crossing the Bridge by Michael Baron (Story Plant)

Quote:
Product Description
Hugh Penders has been stuck in neutral for nearly a decade since his brother Chase died in a car accident. He carries with him two secrets that he has never been able to share with anyone: that he believes he might have been able to prevent the accident, and that he was deeply in love with Chase's girlfriend, Iris.

When Hugh's father suffers a debilitating heart attack, Hugh must return to the New England home he's been running away from for the past ten years. One day, he encounters Iris, who has long since moved away, on the street. They begin a friendship and Hugh believes he's falling in love with Iris all over again.

But the ghost of Chase haunts both of them. And when each reveals a truth the other never knew, their lives, their vision of Chase, and their chances for a future together will change forever.

Charged by the power of desire and the impact of loss, Crossing the Bridge is a soulful, romantic novel that will speak to you deeply

Charlotte Figg Takes Over Paradise by Joyce Magnin (Amazon Main, Amazon UK) - Abingdon Press

Quote:
Product Description
Newly widowed Charlotte Figg purchases a double-wide trailer sight unseen and moves to the Paradise Trailer Park with her dog, Lucky. Unfortunately, neither the trailer nor Paradise are what Charlotte expected. Her trailer is a ramshackle old place in need of major repair, and the people of Paradise are harboring more secrets than Bayer has aspirin. Charlotte’s new friend Rose Tattoo learns that Charlotte played softball and convinces her to rally the women of Paradise into a team. Reluctant at first, Charlotte warms to the notion and is soon coaching the Paradise Angels. Meanwhile, Charlotte discovers that the manager of Paradise, Fergus Wrinkel, abuses his wife, Suzy. Charlotte sets out to find a way to save Suzy from Fergus and in the process comes to a difficult realization about her own painful marriage.
