The House on Seventh Street
by Karen Vorbeck Williams
PRICE: $0.99
Winna returns to her Colorado hometown to settle her father’s estate and sell his last residence, the grand Edwardian house built by her grandfather. She shares childhood memories with her married daughter as they clean and sort through both trash and treasure. Winna hopes to reconcile with her disinherited sister Chloe, and resumes relationships with her best friend and her high school boyfriend.
As the house gives up its secrets—a handwritten will, old love letters, an unfinished story in a notebook, and a diamond ring hidden among her childhood marbles—Winna calls into question everything she ever knew about her beloved grandmother. Then in the dark of night come footsteps on the stairs and numerous break-ins. Valuable art and jewelry go missing, her car’s brakes fail on a mountain road. Winna has an 80-year-old mystery to solve and needs to stay alive long enough to do it.
The House on Seventh Street was inspired by the Nancy Drew Mysteries the author read as a girl. Readers of both literary and women’s fiction and old fashioned mysteries will enjoy this book.

Spare Me the Drama
by Karen Tomsovic
PRICE: FREE
When widowed father of eight Martin Leon remembers that he forgot to invite an important guest to a birthday party for one of the kids, who can blame him? Since his wife’s death, he’s struggled to juggle the demands of a large family with the equally demanding job as head writer of the daytime soap opera he and Jeanie once co-wrote together but which he must now pen alone in the face of a dwindling audience, an executive producer only too happy to alter the course of his stories at her slightest whim, and a nagging case of writer’s block.
Roxanne Hunter parlayed her sexy role on After the Loving into a lucrative, luxury-bedding business years ago and didn’t look back. Just when she was on the brink of having it all, the universe pulled the rug out from under her, leaving her to nurse a devastating double loss of her own.
Accepting Martin’s last-minute invitation, Roxanne decides it’s the perfect getaway to take her mind off her lonely life. All she wants is to fulfill a promise she once made to Martin’s sister and find out how he and his brood are coping with grief. Though Martin may wake up one of these days ready for a woman again, Roxanne has no intention of reliving the days of her youthful, secret crush on him.
But the females in Martin’s family have other plans. Startled by the revelation that she is as much a stray as anyone else Martin has taken into his household, Roxanne nevertheless allows herself to be enfolded into the embrace of family life and a romance with him.
Can she fulfill her promise to get through fate together, or will the universe – and the past – pull the rug out from under her one more time, just as she’s about to get the happy ending she always wanted but never dared dream she’d have?

And then one day, when no one is looking, a tall, dark, and very handsome stranger appears—along with the usual tourists—in the Great Hall of Fair Castle. Wildly rich from the sale of a software company he founded and then sold, William Braddock, Baron of Norwood, is on a mission to conquer all within Fair Castle and then move the thing back to England.
