But Rose is just as beautiful and shares his academic interests. Now he finds himself caught between two lovely sisters—the one he’s expected to wed and the one who’s captured his heart…

BAD SPIRITS (Books 1-5): Kate Jones is on the run with a backpack full of money, intent on finding her way back to the United States from Mexico. Unfortunately, a ruthless drug lord named Salazar is just as intent on finding her, retrieving his stolen money, and making her pay for ever having left him. Is there anyone she can trust?

DEAD OF WINTER: Kate is hiding out in small town Alaska when she witnesses an execution-style murder. Convinced the killers are Salazar’s men and desperate to stop them from finding her, she reports the crime to local law enforcement, hoping to put them off her trail so she can escape.

What she gets is Sam, an enigmatic cop with a mysterious past who’s been assigned to watch over her as the hunt for the killers deepens.

Sam and Kate’s obvious attraction to each other becomes a dangerous complication as Kate realizes the only way she can stay alive is to keep one step ahead of Salazar.

DEATH RITES: When Kate has to leave Alaska (and Sam) behind, she runs to the last place she remembers feeling safe: the North Shore of Oahu. Against her better judgment, she re-establishes old connections and soon faces a new problem in Alek, a gifted carver and avid surfer.

When a brutal murder and theft of a priceless artifact from a museum is discovered, Kate’s thrown into the middle of what appears to be a violent ancient sect come to life. Her only chance of survival is to rely on her wits…

…and the ancient gods of Hawaii.

TOURING FOR DEATH: Hiding out from her shady past driving jeep tours through the rugged high desert of northern Arizona, Kate Jones is determined to stop looking over her shoulder and find peace from her mistake of a gun-toting, former life. Testifying against a Mexican drug lord and a dirty DEA agent didn’t turn out to be a life enhancing choice and she’s been on the move ever since.

Now, five years have passed with no sign of trouble and Kate’s finally starting to believe she’s safe. Her current goal is to make enough money so she can get lost in the tropics when the tourist trade dies off. Unfortunately, it’s the tourists that are dying off and she may be next.

Wrestling with the decision, they soon find out they aren’t the only ones living in the ruins. Someone… something else, has taken an interest in the pair.

The beauty of children is in the magic they see everywhere; the beauty of parenthood is seeing it with them. “Savvy Stories” is a hilarious and heartwarming look at childhood’s lost, magical moments, viewed through the heart of a father. Crawling, walking, play dates, hopscotch, hibiscuses, potty training, princess dresses, gymnastics classes… and Baby Dolphins – The whole wide world of her questions and his answers.

Imagine a hospital room where a woman is about to give birth: nurses are hurriedly coming and going, machines are going beep, beep, beep, a doctor checks the dilation; and over in the corner some idiot is posting about it on Facebook like he is doing a play-by-play.

That idiot would be me.

The soon-to-be, first-time Dad.

Posting on Facebook from the delivery room? Hey, there wasn’t much else for me to be doing at the time, and we had created quite a Facebook following – accidentally – about this oncoming birth. And the little baby girl that was about to arrive was going to change my life in so many ways, but I just had no idea at the time. No idea. What first time dad does?

This was even more the case with me: I was 46 years old and about to become a dad for the first time in my life.

By that age, you have a lot of things pretty much set in your life. I never expected baby stuff all over the place with a newborn. They can’t really do much, right? How much stuff do they need? Within days of bringing that kid home from the hospital, it was everywhere – and my wife and I keep a pretty tidy home. The kid was born at the end of March and by the end of the first week of April there was baby stuff in every single room of the house. It was amazing. I think the kid was planning on taking over the whole time.

But when Henry of Bolingbroke usurps the throne of England from his cousin Richard II, that tranquility is forever shattered. What starts as a feud with a neighboring English lord over a strip of land evolves into something greater–a fight for the very independence of Wales.

After a harrowing encounter on the misty slopes of Cadair Idris, the English knight Harry Hotspur offers Owain a pact he cannot resist.

Peace, however, comes with a heavy price. As tragedies mount and temptations loom, Owain questions whether he can fulfill the prophecies and lead his people to freedom without destroying those around him.

For centuries, the bards have sung of King Arthur’s return, but is this reluctant warrior prince the answer to those prophecies?

Beverley Wilkins has always dreamed of becoming an officer’s wife and working at the Royal Navy’s premier officer training establishment could just be the way to do it.

The only problem is that so far, the only man in her life is her dog Nelson who unfortunately has a mind of his own – not for nothing is he named after Britain’s greatest hero.

But it’s a new semester which means new officers…

Anything could happen!

We know that Christ died for us because He loved us. We know that He laid down everything to cherish us, treasure us, and set us free.

We were created for Him to be loved by Him. Because we were created for His love, He’s always doing so much to cherish us.

But in all His kindness we tend to forget to have a heart of gratitude. As we busy ourselves about our days we come to expect His goodness, while forgetting to praise Him for it. It’s not that we’re ungrateful, but life distracts us from having the right heart.

Therefore we should dedicate ourselves to having a heart of gratitude. Over these next 30 days consider devoting yourself to having a heart of gratitude for all His goodness. Remember God’s love over your life and praise Him for it. Meet with Him daily in the secret place, and so create a continual habit of gratitude and effectual praise.

Angel Meyers loves cheesecake and hot men, possesses I-catch-cute-guys cleavage, and is the only person she knows with her gift. Her talent for touching handwritten documents and connecting with the mind of the writer, dead or alive, lets her delve into the past and locate lost family treasure for her clients.

When she’s hired to locate a Rembrandt lost one hundred and fifty years ago, Angel sees a whole bundle of dollar signs. If she finds the painting, her fee would be enough to buy her much dreamed of animal rescue farm.

There’s just one tricky bit, when she touches the writing of Clyde Owen Jones, the last man to know the painting’s whereabouts, Angel feels a malevolence coming off the pages and realizes Clyde was pure evil.

But the evil doesn’t remain with the dead, it’s here now, and it wants the same thing Angel does—the Rembrandt and maybe her soul.

Can Tyreal the Private Investigator Angel found too hot not to hire and Viggo her guardian angel, protect her from herself and Hell’s evil?

Saturday New Releases on Kindle

I thought we could try something new today…

For each of the various posts of free and discounted Kindle book offers I usually have a minimum number of reviews, combined with a minimum star rating of 4, before I will post it to the blog. By doing so, you can hopefully avoid a lot of the stuff out there that makes for a bad read. On the other hand, if an author has a group of people who decide to negative bomb a book (more on that in another post), the book won’t see the light of day on this blog or any of the other Kindle book-specific sites in the world.

That’s also true for new releases: not that many people take the time to write a short review once they finish a book, and it gets harder for an independent author to separate from the pack and get their work noticed. There’s a lot of new material by well-established independent authors – they don’t have the massive advertising budget the big publishing houses command and they need a little boost.

So, let’s try something new for Saturday mornings and see how it goes: included in this post are several relatively new Kindle book releases by independent authors in a variety of genres. Many of them have been featured on the blog before and can tell a good tale that will entertain you for hours. Each of the books have been significantly discounted in connection with this promotion, and I’m certain you will find something to enjoy in the offerings below.

Let me know what you think of this new feature – just shoot me an email to michael at fkbooksandtips dot com (I type it out that way in a small effort to thwart the spammers).
