Dangerous Magic
A steamy novel of compulsion
By Samantha Hunter
Just $2.99 in the Kindle Store

Kindle Nation readers have met Samantha Hunter before. Whether Sam is known to you as a Harlequin author or the creator of a different kind of Boston sleuth in Past Tense, you may be in for surprises if ytou let her take you in the wild romp of attraction and compulsion she has concocted for you in Dangerous Magic. Here's the setup"

There’s more than sex between them. . .

Convinced she's a stalker magnet, Gwen Mitchell is taking a break from work and from men, trying to find a little “Gwen time” and figure out what's next in her life. When she meets sexy reporter Nathan Stark, on assignment to interview witches in Salem, Ma, life gets a lot more interesting. She’s fiercely attracted to Nathan, but she’s not sure she can trust him.

Nathan is caught off-guard when one of the women he meets while conducting interviews happens to resemble a woman who keeps turning up dead in his nightmares. Unfortunately, his dreams have a history of becoming reality. To protect her, he'll have to face the past he's tried to leave behind him.

It doesn't take long before they both fall prey to the powerful sexual attraction that they can't seem to fully control, and that might be the biggest danger of all.

Flowers For Elvis
Flowers For Elvis
by  Julia Schuster
"Quirky Southern fiction with a literary edge, surprising humor and an uplifting spirit."
Young Adult
by Melody Carlson (the Diary of a Teenage Girl series)

A Little Death In Dixie
By Lisa Turner

"Memphis, the Mississippi River, and the underbelly of human nature they're all exposed in the dark brew of this fast-paced Southern Gothic suspense. Page-turning and atmospheric, this tightly-plotted novel turns the screws and sends readers racing to its surprise conclusion." ~Michael Finger, Senior Editor, Memphis Magazine
The Blues were born out of need, anger and pride. Murder comes from those same dark places. Memphis has both. One of Memphis' most seductive and notorious socialites has vanished. Either she's off on another drunken escapade or the disappearance is something much more frightening. What begins as an ordinary day's work for Detective Billy Able quickly grows into a complex spider's web of tragedy, mystery, suspicion, and sordid secrets including a few of Billy's own. With the help of Mercy Snow, the estranged sister of the missing socialite, Billy follows a twisted trail of human frailty and corruption to disturbing truths that undermine everything he thought he knew about himself and the people he loves.

The Girl on the Beach: A Bess Crawford Mystery
By Charles Todd, 
author of A Duty to the Dead 

The Postcard Killers (Special Free Preview: Book One) by James Patterson and Liza Marklund
(About 87 pages in print)

(That's the good news. The bad news is that Patterson and his agency model publisher, Hachette, have priced pre-orders for the ebook's August 16 release at the exorbitant and unsustainable price of $14.99.)

Paris is stunning in the summerNYPD detective Jacob Kanon is on a tour of Europe's most gorgeous cities. But the sights aren't what draw him--he sees each museum, each cathedral, and each cafe through the eyes of his daughter's killer.

The killing is simply marvelous
Kanon's daughter, Kimmy, and her boyfriend were murdered while on vacation in Rome. Since then, young couples in Paris, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, and Stockholm have been found dead. Little connects the murders, other than a postcard to the local newspaper that precedes each new victim.

Wish you were here
Now Kanon teams up with the Swedish reporter, Dessie Larsson, who has just received a postcard in Stockholm--and they think they know where the next victims will be. With relentless logic and unstoppable action, The Postcard Killers may be James Patterson's most vivid and compelling thriller yet.
