King And King To Be

Final day of free promotion - ends midnight

Time travel, King Arthur, elves, fairies, goblins, a dragon

Product Description
Britain in the Dark Ages. But a Britain that has been forgotten by history. A Britain where elves, fairies and goblins still reside, feared and mistrusted by Men.

As a dark force threatens to conquer the kingdoms of Men they turn to the elves and a wizard for help. Together they seek for the one person who could save the Britain of the sixth century. A man called Arthur. A man who was born and lives in the twentieth century...

A startling first novel by J D Burke combines fantasy with half-familiar legend and a hero who struggles to accept the fate that he once thought was either a story or that belonged to someone else.

Hi Sammylee! Three large ebooks in this ROMANTIC THRILLER series to keep you entertained.

Pastoral setting, rolling fields and pretty fences hide a lot on Springhill Estate in New England.
Intrigue, jealousy and a whisper of the spectral creep along just under the surface, especially in the stone mansion and huge gothic barn. Visit if you dare, haunting psychological suspense permeates the very air.

Review for SOMETHING MOST DEADLY , first book in
the romantic thriller series:

"This book is amazing. It kept my heart pounding until the very last page. It started a little slow, but it kept my interest, and suddenly I couldn't put it down! I have read it about 4 times now and its still has the thrill of finishing it for the first time. I had an immediate connection to the story line, as I do Dressage, love mysteries, and live near Boston. It has romance, suspense, awesome characters, and lots of horses! It is meticulously written and really places you within Springhill Estate, mingling with all of the characters, yet fearing for your life. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys mysteries, even those that do not do Dressage."

SOMETHING MOST DEADLY , SOMETHING VERY GHOSTLY , and SOMETHING MOST EVIL . Clean romance. Mild language. First book in series £ 1.91 .

RB - you'd probably be better off posting a link to your book. Readers are more likely to take a look if they can simply click a link, rather than having to go hunting.

If you enjoy genealogical novels, Tainted Tree may be the book for you. Under £2 for the Kindle; 18 reviews, twelve of them 5*; 115,000 words, (or 367 pages in print.)

Addie was pretty excited when she arrived on England's shores from Boston, USA. Her relationship with Lloyd had come to an end, and she wanted to put that behind her. Now she was eager to find out about the family she'd never known - her English mother, deceased in her twenties, just after Addie's birth and the grandparents who'd never wanted her. As for her father, well, no-one knew who he was - probably a guy like Lloyd - plenty of charm, but no loyalty. When she arrived at the house bequeathed to her in Surrey, England, Addie had no idea what she was going to find out.

Set in Guildford and the West Country in 1991, Addie's research takes her back through three generations to the First World War. A bit of history, mystery and romance in one package.

The Dancing Boy

After losing a foot in Afghanistan, ex-soldier, Tom Gillet, returns to search for the young boy Shafiq, who saved his life by pulling him back from an IED. Aware Shafiq has been sold into child sex slavery as a dancing boy he plans to get the boy out of the country to safety. Close to achieving his aim Gillet is captured by Al Qaeda, taken to the Tora Bora caves on the Afghan/Pakistan border and forced under the threat of death to appear on video discrediting the coalition. Managing to escape, he begins a one man battle against the human trafficking of children into the UK with stunning results.
This book unashamedly gives an insight into just one country's guilt. A crime against humanity it exists in most other so called civilised countries and flourishes. It is a story of events from which people turn away as if it never existed.
Labelled a dark story, it serves to throw a light on the evil men do if left unchecked.
Available on Smashwords.

Gaspar The Thief

By British author, David A. Lindsay, Gaspar The Thief is a fast-paced, humorous, fantasy adventure.

"It is the stuff of high fantasy with mages, wights, goblins and wizards."

"This is a super read. Page turner with unsuspected twists. First class for this genre."

"Gaspar was not your normal hero. He was a normal man with maybe more bad sides than good ones. And I loved him for it. His impeccable sense of humour only added to his appeal."

"Solid editing and well written."

No Man's Land
"...well written and impeccably edited..."

Nothing is ever what it seems in Hollywood. A private investigator with a troubled past suspects that someone is trying to set him up. As he follows the bloody trail of evidence, he is led into a violent and unexpected No Man's Land.

No Man's Land: a brutally noir love story.

The Barcza Gambit (The Alec Fincham Novels)
Someone wants to keep the American military in Iraq, and possibly escalate the war. Fincham, in his first outing, finds himself in Miami, trying to figure out what's really going on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wartime reality, that's what my husband called it!, April 12, 2012

This review is from: The Barcza Gambit (The Alec Fincham Novels #1) (Kindle Edition)
My husband insisted that I pass on his thoughts on this book. Five of five! He, being a veteran, absolutely enjoyed the realism employed. The writing was professional and easy to follow. No spoilers. He told me nothing else. Only that its a five star read.

There are eight more stories in the series, and a couple of new stories to follow.

Take a look, and for £1.03 see if it's your thing.

Savage Possession

Good evening everyone.
Like to read dark historical romance?

Raw sexual emotion, revenge and redemption. If you want a sugar-coated romance, Savage Possession is not for you. In colonial Australia it took hard men like Martin Mulvaney to tame a harsh land.
A sweeping tale of love's triumph over tragedy and treachery in frontier Australia.

A mistaken identity opens the door for Martin Mulvaney to take his revenge on the granddaughter of his mortal enemy.

An old Scottish feud, a love that should never have happened, and a series of extraordinary coincidences traps two lovers in a family vendetta that threatens to destroy their love, if not their lives.

Thanks

Margaret

She's inherited a house in Surrey and hopes that she can link this with her English family.

Apart from that, there are the grandparents, who wanted nothing to do with her, and the father, about whom she knows nothing at all. Soon, Addie will discover the family secrets, and will also meet more than one man. But will she find true love - and will the family be all that she hoped for?

Grim Reaping (The Grim Reaper Series)

As a British author, brought up on the work of Spike Milligan, Ronnie Barker, Robert Rankin and Terry Pratchett, my first original novel,Grim Reaping, is now available in paperback and on Kindle.

Check out the book trailer at http://youtu.be/O5edq9zdAAM

Here is the blurb and book link. Take a look and enter the surreal existence of Grim Alfonso Reaper.

The life of Death is never simple, but when little green men are rumoured to be plotting his demise things can get so complicated.
Welcome to the Business of Life, the company responsible for Existence, run exquisitely under the ever watchful, all-seeing-eye of Johnny B God.
In the grand scheme of all things Immortal, Grim Alfonzo Reaper has been the collector of souls since the Days of Creation, which followed many millennia of brainstorming and graph analysis, but he has never come across a situation where a soul he collects apparently died while digging his grave.
Who would want to kill Death? Men in green Lycra apparently which would suggest a lack of both common and dress sense.
Aided and hindered in equal measure by a verbally-challenged demon, the Devil himself, and a multitude of vapourous but colourful collected souls, Grim finds that his life was much simpler when all humans had to say was "Ug."
A surreal comic fantasy about death, life, love, annoyance, violence, depravity, green Lycra and just a little Grim Reaping.

The Depths of Deception (17 five-star reviews)

"Intelligent, compelling." "The first thing that impressed me was the writing style. It is unique...sensuous in the true meaning of the word..."

America has disappeared some years ago. A neo-fascist Party has come to power in the UK. China is on the rise. A submarine hurtles through the cold dark waters of the Atlantic en route to an unknown destination. Only the ship's doctor knows its true mission, but he is not who he appears to be.

A sweeping tale moving from the violent heart of Apartheid South Africa, to the ruins of the United Kingdom, and down to the edge of the world in the frozen Antarctic landscape, The Depths of Deception is a tale of revenge, served as a shatteringly cold dish.

Pete Harper says:
FREE to read? Then why not A Song for Nemesis A pacy cocktail of heartbreak and romance, betrayal and valour, thrown together under a worldwide conspiracy to overthrow all governments and enslave the people of the world. Character-driven, soulful - with a storyline that dips into several countries, giving the thriller an international ambience.

Synopsis:
Unable to come to terms with the shocking murder of his lover, Enrique Maqui abandons his work as a filmmaker and leaves London for war-torn El Salvador. Wounded while undertaking a covert assignment for the rebel forces, he meets Senica, a peasant whose courage over adversity inspires him to put his life in order. With an unfinished screenplay still sitting in London, and an impatient producer on his back, Enrique returns to the city that took his lover's life. Here, he redrafts the script, which in essence threatens to lift the lid off a deception that runs to the core of civilization, a totalitarian nightmare devised by a power as brutal as it is invisible.

Before long, with Senica set to arrive in the UK on a doctored passport, Enrique finds himself terrorized by a gunman, whose client's chilling ploy to first unnerve and then to eliminate the film director puts at risk the entire production. Betrayal, and a remarkable act of valour from an unlikely source ensue. For the gunman, to disappoint his anonymous and apparently wealthy client is not an option, as he receives his final instructions and swiftly closes in on his quarry...
