Louisiana Hotshot
by Julie Smith
PRICE: FREE
Confirmed grump Eddie Valentino placed the ad. Hotshot twenty-something Talba Wallis knew exactly how to answer it.

And thus was born the dynamic duo of New Orleans private detectives, one cynical, sixty-five-year-old Luddite white dude with street smarts, and one young, bright-eyed, Twenty-First century African-American female poet, performance artist, mistress of disguise, and computer jock extraordinaire. Think Queen Latifah and Danny DeVito.

In Louisiana Hotshot, their job is to hunt down a sociopath and pedophile who’s molested the fourteen-year-old daughter of their client, hangs out on the ragged edges of the rap and recording industries, and has more powerful allies than a Cabinet member.

But both detectives have unfinished business from the past—in Eddie’s case, something he deeply regrets; in Talba’s, a personal mystery, one so frightening no one will help her investigate. But she knows she won’t sleep till she solves it—and the truth will change her forever. 




False Impressions
by Sandra Nikolai
PRICE: $0.99
Montreal ghostwriter Megan Scott falls under police suspicion when her husband and a female companion are found murdered. In what a Qu├ębec detective calls a crime of passion, startling evidence surfaces to also implicate Michael Elliott, a young investigative reporter who’d rather rub elbows with scumbags than live the posh lifestyle he inherited.

Clutched out of her comfort zone, Megan is flung into Michael’s dark world of criminal investigation. As they make a last-ditch attempt to prove their innocence, an elusive enemy closes in and threatens their lives. Who wants them out of the way and why?

Their only path to freedom is to catch the twisted killer before they become the next victims. But not knowing who to trust or where to turn can have consequences that are just as lethal… 





The Odd Fellows Society
by C.G. Barrett
PRICE: $0.99
Santiago Torres, the Jesuit headmaster of one of Washington, D.C.’s top high schools, knows two truths. First, historian Jasper Willoughs, his closest friend, didn’t toss himself off a dormitory roof. Second, a Georgetown University secret society—a running joke on campus—has blood on its hands.

Torres’s pursuit of the truth embroils him in a bizarre and thrilling scavenger hunt. The clues, scratched out on parchment by the mysterious Odd Fellows Society, lead Santi to risk everything he holds sacred: his job, his life, even the woman he secretly loves. As for his relationship with his God?

Well, that’s complicated.

A hold-your-breath thriller that explores our national obsession with race, The Odd Fellows Society will have you looking at the U.S. capital—and its monuments’ secrets—in a whole different shade of black and white.




Lip Hooked
by Chris Gardner
PRICE: FREE
Finn Cummings is a walking contradiction: experienced deep-sea captain without a boat; domestic-abuse counselor with a hair-trigger temper; loved by the gorgeous multi-millionaire owner of Heaven Scent, a 58-foot Buddy Davis-designed sport-fishing yacht, yet unable to free himself from the clutches of Jeena Sterling, a sexual predator who shows up in his bed, dripping wet and wearing a mermaid costume. Finn’s shaky hold on what should be an easy-going life in the Florida Keys totally unravels when Jeena and her brother Billy steal Finn’s not-so-secret cash retirement fund, along with the stashes of two other local captains, all of whom have made love to the same “mermaid,” and can’t get over it any better than Finn.

Below the surface of the ocean, a giant hammerhead shark cruises toward a rendezvous with more than one of the characters, and a few 1000-pound blue marlin unintentionally become participants in a tournament with a winner-takes-all purse worth a cool $1,500,000.

From the Florida Keys, to the island of San Salvador, Grand Bahamas, and beneath the ocean in between, Lip Hooked is a wild adventure of excitement, danger, and crisscrossing double-crosses that keep readers guessing.





Deep River Burning
by Donelle Dreese
PRICE: $0.99
Denver Oakley’s home town of Adena, Pennsylvania has become a world on fire. The abandoned coal mines underneath the town are a blazing inferno, the escaping smoke and gases killing vegetation and making residents sick. Denver, who recently lost her parents, feels adrift and alone. She sells the family home, drops out of college and takes refuge in Isabel Beach, North Carolina. There, white, scalloped beaches and a coastal wildlife sanctuary provide Denver with a sense of belonging and a new focus.

And then she receives a letter from Josh, a good friend who disappeared from Adena before Denver left. In the letter, Josh asks her to return to their hometown and meet with him at their old meeting place on the river. She thought she’d never go back, and is still not convinced she can re-open those old wounds.

But if she ignores the letter, Denver will always wonder what might have been.


Stealing His Heart
by Delaney Cameron
PRICE: $0.99
Just days after her return to St. Marys, Darcy Withers runs into her childhood crush. Given that she was twelve and he was nineteen at the time, it’s not surprising that he doesn’t remember her. And she’s just as happy to keep it that way. Her dreams of him coming back to find her grown up and so beautiful that he can’t help but fall instantly in love with her should have been long forgotten. All he can ever be is a reminder of how much she lost when she veered off the road to avoid an oncoming car.

Matt Gibson has spent the last five months trying to put a painful breakup behind him. When he meets Darcy, he can’t escape the feeling that he knows her. As circumstances bring them together, he finds himself drawn to this lovely woman who’s as disinterested in dating as he is. His suggestion that they hang out as friends seems like a sensible alternative, giving them the benefit of companionship without the pressure or commitment of a more serious relationship.

But does the heart truly forget? Or does it lock away those memories until the person comes along who has the key?
