Just think! In less than a week it will be Christmas! I don’t know how you spend the holiday season chez-vous, but I personally reward myself for a year’s hard work with bucketloads of my two favorite things – movies and books! Speaking of the latter, a few of my author friends are doing special offers this week so I thought I’d do the decent thing to spread the word about them and thus to give something back to the awesome indie publishing community that’s blessed me with so much. It’s the Chrismassy thing to do, after all, and it feels great 🙂 Besides, I bet you’ll feel just as great once you’ve got a load of these awesome deals – most of them by best-selling/award-winning authors!
Double-check prices before downloading. Some of these deals are valid just for a couple days, then they go poof! Just like gingerbread cookies when my family comes over 😛

Fran is adjusting after her husband’s death when her first love comes back to town upsetting her family and leading her to an inspiration. Fran first fell in love with Michael as a teenager.

Just when she’s becoming fed up with the well-meaning, yet tiresome comments about Carl’s death, her first love returns and stirs long-forgotten emotions…
Ella never leaves work early. She loves her copy of Strunk & White. She buttons her shirt up to the top. She buys beige furniture. She pays her bills on time and always says hello to her neighbors. If she were a superhero, her alter-ego would be SuperPoliteGirl. She doesn’t have any vices—as long as swearing in Italian doesn’t count.
If she were in a romance novel, her fiancé wouldn’t fit the mold of the love interest—not by any stretch of the imagination. His shoulders aren’t particularly broad, his five o’clock shadow comes in patchy during the night, and his voice is a moderate tenor, not a shiver-inducing baritone. But those minor issues are the elements of fiction. No one needs that in day-to-day life.

Fifteen years ago, Darcy Walker’s parents thought it was a good idea to give her a unique name: Darcy, meaning “dark walker.” Whether that was a stroke of genius or stroke of stupid, they definitely nailed the irony. She lacks direction, her grades stink despite a high IQ, she’s boringly average–although flirting admirers claim otherwise–and God help her, she’s infatuated with a bad boy.
A bad boy that her hottie best friend, Dylan, wishes would get acquainted with his fist.
Set in Nebraska during the 1800s, whorehouse madams, ladies of the night, a schoolmarm, a Pinkerton detective, a Shakespeare-quoting old coot, brutal outlaws, and a horse-wrangler fill out the cast of characters. Adult themes are added to the mix, along with colorful descriptions of an 1856 land rush, Buffalo Bill and his Wild West Show, Annie Oakley, bank/train robberies, small town local politics, and of course, romance. Two, in fact!
