Free Ebooks for Kindle

BDSM means bondage, Dominance/submission, sadomasochism, and other kink-related things. If you prefer close-door "vanilla" sex in a book, this probably isn't a good choice for you. But if you have an open mind and want to learn more about this alternative lifestyle, as well as want to read about real-life heroes and heroines dealing with life head-on as they move toward their realistic happily ever afters, then hang on for the ride of your life.

Marc d'Alessio might own a BDSM club with his fellow military veterans, Adam and Damián, but he keeps all women at a distance. When Marc rescues Angelina Giardano from a disastrous first BDSM experience at the club, however, an uncharacteristic attraction leaves him torn between his safe, but lonely world, and a possible future with his angel.

Angelina leaves BDSM behind only to have her dreams plagued by the masked Italian angel who rescued her at the one and only BDSM club she ever went to. When she meets Marc at a bar in her hometown, she can't shake the feeling she knows him—but has no idea why he reminds her of her angel.

Marc's search-and-rescue partner, widower Luke Denton, confides he believes Angelina is the angel his wife promised to send him, convincing Marc she is meant for Luke. A painful incident from his past keeps Marc from letting any woman drive a wedge between him and a friend.

When the abusive Dom from Angelina's past threatens, Marc's protective instincts kick in; he must keep her safe. Again at the Masters at Arms Club, she turns the tables on Marc—and turns his safe, controlled world upside down.

This is Book Two in the RESCUE ME series and should be read after the free introduction to series, MASTERS AT ARMS. This book includes a strong secondary plot with Adam and Karla of MASTERS, including a dramatic ending that will set up their story that follows, NOBODY'S HERO. The novels in the series are not stand-alones and need to be read in order to understand and keep up with the events in the lives of these recurring characters. Also expect couples to continue to work on issues AFTER their happy endings. Marc and Angelina will return in each book, but as the primary characters in SOMEBODY'S ANGEL, Book Five.)

For twenty-one year-old Gemma, life has never been normal. She knows nothing about her past and has been haunted by the same monsters in her nightmares for the last few months. Unemotional and numb to life, she feels disconnected from everyone. Until the very first day she cries. After that, nothing in her life is the same.

Her emotions slowly surface and she starts experiencing love, happiness, and anger, feelings she never knew existed. But they leave her confused and she doesn’t know whether to embrace them or run away from them.

Her life only gets more complicated when she meets Alex. Sexy, arrogant, and secretive, Alex can get under Gemma’s skin like no one can. Yet she’s drawn to him by an invisible connection she has no control over. She’s also seen him before. In her nightmares.

Every part of Gemma’s mind is screaming at her to stay away from Alex, but every other part of her is begging to get close to him. But the closer she gets, the more she realizes Alex knows more about her than he originally let on.

As secrets about her past unravel, Gemma’s life becomes threatened. She needs to figure out what’s going on, before she winds up dead. But the only person she can turn to for answers is the one person she isn’t sure she can trust.
College-bound Lexi Adams leads no ordinary life. Premonitions dictate her every move, compelling her to rescue strangers day and night. After years of self-sacrifice, she decides to ignore one, but innocent people die. So, when the next premonition depicts her own death, Lexi is faced with the decision of a lifetime. As if an ill-fated future isn’t enough to deal with, a series of strange illnesses and murders devastate her small town, and co-worker Jessica Nelson insists Lexi can help.

According to Jessica, everyone is born with an inner energy called Essence. Only a select few, Amethysts, can control Essence and heal people. Jessica claims to be an Amethyst and asks Lexi to join her and a group of her friends as they track the murderers. Despite her personal plight, Lexi considers joining them.

Then again, Lexi discovers secrets run deep among Jessica’s friends. Not only do they have a hidden agenda, but they also harbor extraordinary abilities. And they have connections with the Ray-pacs – the sadistic killers who are preying on human Essence. Ultimately, Lexi must decide if life, not death, equals salvation. And if so, is she willing to make certain sacrifices and join her friends in eradicating the Ray-pacs?

Since their release in 2011, books 1 & 2 from the vampire series, Dark Secrets, have come together, presented as one great book for one low price.

How can you be attracted to a guy who just said he wants to kill you?

Ara-Rose asks herself the same question. She’s been torn away from her old life, thrown into a new one in a new country, and in the midst of death, heartache and depression, she finds herself in love with a vampire—one who kills people with his teeth!

But the vampire is forbidden to fall for this human, and at the point Ara-Rose decides she can’t live without him, he pulls away and leaves her falling back to the darkness he woke her from. She will be caught up in a century-old feud among brothers, and the fight for love becomes a fight for her life.

The only question now is whether her beloved vampire will find her in time, or leave her to face a destiny he triggered with their first kiss.

 Valerie Dearborn wants a cotton candy life, but it’s more like a puffer fish: pointy, unusual, and—if not prepared exactly right—deadly.

In London for graduate school, Val knows she's finally free. Her father and ex-almost-boyfriend are back in California and she's out of the Vampire hunting biz for good. Or is she?

She draws the attention of Lucas, a 1600 year old Vampire, and King to his kind. He’s also wicked hot. As golden as Lucifer, and just as tempting, he makes Valerie an offer she can't refuse— help him find out if the Others (Empaths, Fey and Werewolves) still exist or he'll stop protecting those she loves.

Lucas tells her that Empaths were a Vampire’s biggest weakness before going extinct hundreds of years ago. While the Fey or a Werewolf might kill a Vampire, an Empath could enslave them, seducing or harming with emotions at will. The one detail he leaves out? Valerie is an Empath.

And after 1600 years of an emotionless existence, Lucas wants Valerie like a recovering alcoholic wants a wine cooler.

Can she keep those she loves alive, stop Lucas from munching on her, survive a fanged revolution and still find a way to have that boring, normal life she’s always wanted? Probably not, but boy is she gonna try!

 A killer is stalking the streets of Crossroads, Mississippi, and it's up to Sheriff Ava Dushaine to stop him. But when suspicion falls on werewolf alpha Julian Kasey--Ava's ex-lover and the man who still haunts her dreams--Ava knows that she'll either have to prove his innocence...or watch the whole town go up in flames.

A BIT OF BITE is a short paranormal romance--the story contains approximately 11,000 words. A BIT OF BITE is intended for adults--it includes hot werewolves, a dangerous heroine, and graphic language. Consider yourself warned.

One of the fiercest soldiers the Phrixians have ever produced, Maris Sulle has been an outsider from the moment he was born different from the rest of his family. He grew up with a secret that cost him everything——his birthright, his family, and his military career. In all his life, he’s only had one love, and he has sacrificed his own happiness to see his best friend reunited with the woman he loves. But now that his good deed is done, he feels lost and adrift. Even though they do their best to include him in their new family, Maris is once again on the outside looking in.

Ture has spent his life hiding from everyone around him——his family, the world, you name it——while trying desperately to fit in. Badly hurt by everyone he’s ever known, he trusts no one except his own best friend. And honestly, he can’t understand why he trusts her. Nor can he believe her when she describes a loyalty between friends the likes of which he’s never seen.

But when Ture is in his darkest hour, he’s saved by a hero he thought only existed in novels. A man who is every bit as scarred and mistrusting as he is——one who has no interest in being dragged into another relationship with anyone.

Having spent his life as a living study of doomed relationships, Maris is well aware of the courtship and fiasco that invariably follows. Still, there is something about Ture he can’t resist. Something that won’t let him walk away when he knows he should.

But when old enemies return to threaten them both, they either have to stand together or die alone.

Review: Lightpoints by Peter Kassan

What if you suddenly discovered you had a sense—and powers—that almost no one else in the world did?
When Amanda Lindner Nichols, a 24-year-old graphic artist living with her husband in Queens, New York, is revived from a near-death experience, she discovers she perceives everyone around her as points of light—but not with her eyes. She soon learns she can not only perceive the life energy of others, but she can give and take it. With the help of others like her, she brings her husband Chris to the brink of death and back to bestow on him the same remarkable faculty, and they're the happiest they've been.
But not for long. All over the world, people who've been revived from their own near-death experience at just the right moment discover themselves with these same unusual powers. They find ways to use them—some for good and some for evil. When Amanda and Chris encounter a ruthless group of gangsters with the same faculty, tragedy follows—and Amanda faces the greatest challenge of her life.
 Heading home, waiting for a train in Grand Central Station, Amanda Nichols is attacked and left for dead. Amanda experiences a near death experience coupled with an out of body experience while paramedics feverishly work to save her life. Upon waking in the hospital Amanda realizes she has gained an extra sense. She can perceive everyone around her as points of light. She can tell things about these people as well, whether they are happy, sad, in pain, also if they are good people or not. Amanda has a hard time coping with this new ability and is afraid to tell anyone about it, even her husband Chris, for fear of being crazy. Amanda meets Lisa at a support group for near death experience and realizes Lisa has the sense too. Lisa explains that while rare there are others like them out there.
Amanda feels disconnected to her husband since she has developed this ability and together they decide to try to give Chris the sense as well. With eventual success they feel nothing could go wrong in their lives now. Unfortunately they were very wrong...
After realizing the sense can be used to harm people without physical contact Carlos Herrera spends all his time looking for others who have the sense as well. After finding two men who also possess the gift he recruits them by force and sends them out to find others.
Will Herrera's men come across Amanda and her new family of sensitives in the hunt to expand his evil ways? What experiences will Amanda face in life with the sense? Is she capable of facing the impossible?
I found this to be a good story. It's different from anything I've read so far. I think the idea for this story is a great one. The story felt a little slow to me at times and felt a little confused about a couple characters that were introduced as having the faculty who I assumed would rejoin the story later who did not. They were introduced in a chapter then completely forgotten with no real closure to their story or how they fit in the book itself. All in all though, I thought this was a good read. Possibly a little amateur in the writing but it was a simple, pleasant book. I would definitely read another book written by Peter Kassan and I recommend Lightpoints as a good read for Paranormal readers. Would especially be a great read for young adult readers.

 I’ve been a writer since I was a teenager, when I became devoted to poetry. I read as many poets and books about poetry as I could find. To learn the art, I assigned myself the task of writing one poem a day—whether I thought I had any ideas for one or not. After a while, I had a few I thought were worthwhile, and began sending them out. I got a couple of poems published in obscure literary journals and one in Seventeen Magazine, which led me to being invited to contribute a poem to a book called The Young at Prayer. Although I was—even then—an atheist, I managed to write something for it.
In my twenties, I devoted myself to writing the next Great American Novel, and actually wrote three of them (American novels, but not great ones), supporting myself at first writing computer programs (which I’d learned to do as an undergraduate). I’m now relieved that none of those early works was published, and I’ve long since discarded the manuscripts.
Also in my twenties, I earned a living with a variety of other kinds of writing, including technical writing (software manuals) and educational writing (instructional workbooks and audiotapes). I was also a staff writer for an adult comedy-variety health education show for Children’s Television Workshop, which was reviewed by Time Magazine as (if I recall accurately) “the most dismaying new show of the season.”
Combining my love of writing with my interest in computer programming, I became a technical writer for several software products companies, eventually becoming a minority shareholder and executive vice president of a small, privately held company. There, I wrote and managed the writing of everything from software design documents to marketing literature.Twenty-five years later, after it was sold to a large computer company with a three letter name, I became one of those celebrated risk-takers we’ve heard so much about. I started a company based on what I thought was a bright idea of mine. Within a couple of years, I’d crashed and burned, and discovered myself in financial ruin and without a job. Trying to find a job in my industry or to establish a consulting practice, I learned it was no industry for old men. Mostly to keep myself sane, I decided to write a novel based on the germ of an idea I’d had in my twenties. That turned became Lightpoints.
Oh, and along the way, I met the woman who would become my wife, married her, raised two children, and housed as many as five cats at a time. My wife and I now live in Connecticut. We’re down to only three cats.

Blog Tour/ Giveaway with Rahima Warren

Dark Innocence: Book One of the Star-Seer's Prophecy by Rahima Warren
Guest Post with Author Rahima Warren
Love the title of this blog. In my case, I might say, “All the Fun starts IN the Dark!” I’d never tried writing fantasy, until one sleepless night, I wondered if I could write in the dark by the light of my new laptop. I wrote a short story for this dream/fantasy character who had been pestering me for decades. Surprise! This little story unleashed a wild, passionate creative torrent, and for the next three years, I had a secret literary love affair with this character, whose name turned out to be Kyr. He led me into the dark labyrinth of the Soul-Drinker, a vicious, depraved sorcerer-king. The Soul-Drinker keeps himself alive through orgies of torture, rape and murder, soaking in the soul-essence of his victims, and corrupting the people and the land. Kyr was raised and trained by torture, to be one of the Soul-Drinker’s obedient slaves. Kyr is ice and iron inside and cold-heartedly carries out the Soul-Drinker’s every evil whim. 
I never imagined writing a fantasy novel (let alone a trilogy), and certainly not one so dark! But through my experience as an expressive arts therapist, I had learned to trust the process of free creative expression, no matter how dark or ugly. So I followed the flow and wrote whatever Kyr showed me. It certainly was dark, edgy, juicy fun!
I thought I would never show the story to anyone, but ten years later, Dark Innocence: Book One of the Star-Seer’s Prophecy was published. Here is a bit about Kyr’s story:
Six generations ago, the Soul-Drinker banished Zhovanya, the Goddess of the land, and has dominated the realm of Khailaz with his powerful sorcery and mental powers ever since. The Star-Seer, Lyriana, cast a thousand star-fates to discover who can overthrow him, bring back the Goddess, and restore the Sacred Balance. This is her Prophecy:
The Star-Seer’s Prophecy                                         
When the Wanderers
form the Dire Cross
under the Firebird’s wings,
sorcery and murder
must give him life.
He must be abandoned.
May we be forgiven!
Star-cursed, twin-souled,
knowing only evil, pain and ice,
the dark innocent
is our salvation.
He must be betrayed.
May we be forgiven!
Through three hells,
through blissful heaven
and its loss,
he surrenders all
yet never yields.
He must be forsaken.
May we be forgiven!
Hollowed by suffering and evil,
Hallowed by expiation and submission,
the Vessel of the Goddess is created.
We must ensure his Fate.
May we be forgiven!
Her descendants have formed a secret Circle dedicated to finding the Dark Innocent, and ensuring that the Prophecy is fulfilled, no matter the cost. As the book begins, this burden rests on the Circle’s leader, Rajani, the Warrior-Mage. When the Soul-Drinker chooses Kyr as his Favorite, it is the long-awaited time for the Prophecy to be fulfilled, for Kyr is the Dark Innocent of the Prophecy. Rajani leads the Circle in an attack on the labyrinth, and rescues Kyr. What follows is the story of Kyr’s arduous journey from slavish obedience to evil to courageous service to the Goddess, as he fulfills the Star-Seer’s Prophecy.
ABOUT Dark Innocence: Book One of the Star-Seer's Prophecy by Rahima Warren
The “twin-souled dark innocent,” Kyr, is a youth born and raised to blindly carry out the Soul-Drinker’s brutal commands. At first, Kyr’s one desire is death, the only escape from the Soul-Drinker’s hellish rule. Just when he is about to get his wish, the secret Circle rescues him. Now he has to choose between the familiar easy path of despair and death, or the hard path of healing, living, and a greater destiny, about which he knows nothing. How can a slave who has known only evil, pain and obedience choose to become a man of courage and compassion, and fulfill the Star Seer's Prophecy?

In 2006, Rahima retired to focus on her expressive painting, creative writing, and spiritual studies.
In her work with clients recovering from abuse, she was awed by the human capacity to heal, and to reach new levels of forgiveness, wholeness and happiness.

Fear the Darkness (Guardians of Eternity #9)
The Guardians of Eternity are embroiled in an epic battle for survival. They are as dangerous as they are sensual—and their lustful appetites are legendary...
Her Visions Lead Her To Danger
Beautiful Cassandra is a Were, a prophet both vulnerable and defiant, blessed with visions that portend the fate of the world. A rare and delicate creature, Cassie must be protected at all costs. Enter Caine, a powerful cur turned pureblooded Were whose recent tangles with a demon lord have left him in serious need of redemption. Caine is duty-bound to keep Cassie out of danger—and that means resisting his potent urge to seduce her.
And Only He Can Save Her
As Cassie's mysterious visions lead them in and out of danger, Caine believes he has found his true mate, the woman with whom he is bound for all eternity. Cassie is both charmed and frightened by Caine's magnetism, and unsure if he—or her feelings for him—can be trusted. But Cassie can't afford to doubt Cain now. A deadly enemy bent on destruction is closer than they realize—and only they can keep chaos from ruling the world.

Levet (Guardians of Eternity #9.5)
Just released on March 26, 2013
Gargoyles do not admire difference--and Levet is undeniably different. Of miniscule stature, rather beastly looks, and with fragile, delicate wings, even his family has shunned him, banished him from his beloved Paris. That he is the only gargoyle ever to help defeat the Dark Lord and his hordes of minions makes no impression. But now Levet has come home, determined to be restored to the official Gargoyle Guild. To do so, he must confront the most feared gargoyle in all of Europe. The one who tried to kill him as a child: his own mother. . .

With few allies, Levet's survival may depend on the aid of two strangers: Valla, a beautiful but damaged nymph, and Elijah, the fiercely possessive, love-struck vampire clan chief to whom she can't quite surrender--unless Levet has something to do with it. . .
