Having just been advanced into the ranks of the first-class traders, Etl thought his life could not get any better. He was a trader of the Tepanec Empire, living in the Great Capital itself. Yes, there had been a war, an outright revolt by the united tributaries and other subdued nations of his beloved city-state, but those would be squashed easily. The Tepanecs were always victorious. The only thing that made him worry was the decision of Tlalli, the girl from the marketplace he liked, to sell herself into the Palace’s services. He didn’t want her to do that, having intended to take care of her himself, but the stubborn, pretty thing went on and did it all the same. Why? Apparently, Tlalli was not just a simple market girl, but a young woman with a very unusual agenda. She had her own grudge to settle, and with no lesser person than the Emperor himself. But then the enemies struck…

NIght and Day

IDB ProductionsPrice: Free




Night and Day is a weird and beautiful novel by Virginia Woolf, a book that explores Woolf’s favorite themes: the relationship between marriage and love, between success and happiness as well as the right of a woman to become independent and women’s suffrage.

The story of the novel revolves around four people, Mary Datchet, an emancipated woman and suffragist who is secretly in love with Ralph Denham; Katharine Hilbery, a beautiful lady from a wealthy literary family who has no interest in anything related to arts and secretly studies mathematics, wishing to become an astronomer; William Rodney, a poet Katherine is engaged to, but who discovers he does not love her when he meets Katherine’s cousin; Ralph Denham, a poor lawyer who shares Katherine’s interest in sciences and is also secretly in love with the girl.

With so many feelings kept secret and so many social engagements, the plot becomes as complex and multi-faceted as only Virginia Woolf can manage. However, what makes this novel truly great is not the complexity of the relationships that link and separate the characters, not even the intricate plot – it is the honesty bordering on brutal frankness that characterizes both Katharine and Ralph while they are examining their own feelings. They both reject the idea of love as being only an illusion, make-believe that is likely to turn into bitter disappointment, but at a certain point they must both reconcile the two sides of their characters, their dark side and their troubled soul perceived as their night-time identity and their self as it is perceived by those around them, perceived as their daytime persona.

Night and Day is a beautifully written and composed novel that features complex and sensitive characters who refuse to lie to themselves – a book recommended to anyone looking for some poetic and thought-provoking prose.

Rom Tell ThatPrice: Free




THREE smoking hot novels plus a sneak peek of Theodora Taylor’s HOLT: HER RUTHLESS BILLIONAIRE!!

Fairgood love ain’t nice. It’s instant, relentless, and rough. 50 Shades of Hillbilly….

HIS FOR KEEPS

Her ruthless country singer…

Everyone thinks Colin Fairgood is exactly what his PR machine tells them—a country superstar with a killer smile and dazzling blue eyes.

But I met him before his country makeover and the fame. Colin has a dark side… one that takes me places I’ve never been. One that makes me want to do very bad things with him. One that makes me scared of him. And even more scared of myself.

I don’t know what kind of endgame he’s running on my heart, but he’s definitely playing for keeps. And if I’m not careful, he’s going to win.

But what happens when he finds out about my past? And discovers all my secrets?

One thing’s for sure: when country superstar Colin Fairgood collides with me, a songwriter with everything to lose, it’s going to be one hell of a story.
********

HIS FORBIDDEN BRIDE

Her ruthless amnesiac

I know everything about him…except who he really is.

Okay. All I wanted to do was leave West Virginia behind after serving my time there in exchange for my medical school degree. But then a shockingly sexy amnesia patient showed up at my hospital and flipped my heart switch on like no one ever has before.

Now I’m happier than I’ve ever been, and seriously considering a future with someone who doesn’t have a past. But how happy can we really be when neither of us truly knows who the other is? And when the shocking truth finally comes out, will it bring us closer together or tear us apart?
****

HIS TO OWN.

Her ruthless enforcer

The only thing more shocking than getting sold by my boyfriend? Who he sold me to…

JUNE: Over the years with Razo, I’ve learned to keep my mouth shut. Learned not to fight back. Learned that talking only makes it bad…fighting only makes it worse. I shut down my feelings long ago. Because it’s the only way to survive.

But then Razo sells me…

…to a dangerous biker with zero morals and a sick upbringing. A psycho who makes me feel like I have a flock of ravens inside my stomach. He never hesitates to remind me: I belong to him now.

And he’ll do just about anything to keep me.

Crazy. Psycho. Killer.

MASON: I know I’m crazy. I know I’m scary. And I definitely know I don’t got no business buying some girl off a gang leader I’m supposed to be selling guns to. Fact is, her kind and my kind…we ain’t never supposed to mix.

See, I know all this. But I don’t care.

She belongs to me now. Don’t matter how I got her, only that I’m keepin’ her. And no matter what it takes, I’m going to make her mine in all the ways that count.

Nobody and nothing is going to keep us apart.

******Plus, a very special sneak peek for HOLT: HER RUTHLESS BILLIONAIRE*****

Holt Calson was born with an 11-figure spoon in his mouth to one of the wealthiest families in the world. The night they met, Sylvie Pinnock only had 11 dollars in her purse, and it was all the money she had in the world.



They were never supposed to meet, much less be together. But Holt didn’t care. He just wanted Sylvie. And what Calsons want, Calsons get.

Beaufort BooksPrice: $6.76 Free Shipping




After graduating from college, Jennifer isn’t sure what she wants to do with her life. She is drawn to the Appalachian Trail, a 2175-mile footpath that stretches from Georgia to Maine. Though her friends and family think she’s crazy, she sets out alone to hike the trail, hoping it will give her time to think about what she wants to do next. The next four months are the most physically and emotionally challenging of her life. She quickly discovers that thru-hiking is harder than she had imagined: coping with blisters and aching shoulders from the 30-pound pack she carries; sleeping on the hard wooden floors of trail shelters; hiking through endless torrents of rain and even a blizzard. With every step she takes, Jennifer transitions from an over-confident college graduate to a student of the trail, braving situations she never imagined before her thru-hike. The trail is full of unexpected kindness, generosity, and humor. And when tragedy strikes, she learns that she can depend on other people to help her in times of need.

The Young Railroaders

IDB ProductionsPrice: Free




The Young Railroaders by Francis Lovell Coombs comes with the subtitle Tales of Adventure and Ingenuity, which sets expectations the story certainly meets – and even exceeds.

The story features the adventures of three young boys. Trained in using the telegraph machine, the three youngsters employ their knowledge of then-advanced telecommunication technology as well as their resourcefulness and their knowledge of how the railroad system works to catch villains and to solve some mysteries, too.

Mainly known for his biography of U. S. Grant, Francis Lovell Coombs has earned a name in the literary world as a historian. In The Young Railroaders he acts as a true historian as well, depicting the era of railroad developments so vividly that the readers feel completely absorbed by this harsh and exciting world, but he also shows his talent as a story-teller.

The novel is certainly witty, the events come in a quick, yet well-organized succession and the book combines funny adventures with more serious happenings that teach the young boys important lessons about life and honor. Sometimes the three boys need courage to solve the problem they are faced with, sometimes it is quick thinking and creativity that they need to analyze the situation in a fraction of a second and to be able to find the best solution and the best way to proceed.

The characters are well-shaped and complex, too – the protagonists just as much as the secondary characters that the reader is offered only a glimpse of. The three young boys become heroes gradually, in a manner unnoticeable even to them. They thwart crime and perform spectacular rescues, their adventures being described in an amusing and lively style, making The Young Railroaders an excellent reading experience for young readers just as much as for adults.
