Hello lovely readers!
I just thought I’d shout out a few free books I’ve downloaded from Amazon today! It’s December, and with the holidays upon us, we could all use some free stuff- and what’s better than books?
The Gatekeeper’s Sons by Eva Pohler
Dive into a world in which the ancient gods of Greek mythology are real.
Part paranormal romance, part epic urban fantasy, the first in this bestselling young adult series is the teen novel mythology lovers have been searching for:
Fifteen-year-old Therese watches her parents die. While in a coma, she meets the twin sons of Hades—Hypnos (the god of sleep) and Thanatos (the god of death). She thinks she’s manipulating a dream, not kissing the god of death and totally rocking his world.
Than makes a deal with Hades and goes as a mortal to the Upperworld to try and win Therese’s heart, but not all the gods are happy. Some give her gifts. Others try to kill her.
The deal requires Therese to avenge the death of her parents. With the help of Than’s fierce and exotic sisters, the Furies, she finds herself in an arena face to face with the murderer, and only one will survive.

Shearwater by D. S. Murphy
“It’s like The Little Mermaid for adults. I couldn’t stop reading.” ★★★★★
When my parents died in an accident, they left me like a piece of furniture to a grandfather I never knew existed. In Ireland. As if moving halfway around the world wasn’t bad enough, I soon learned my mother had left behind some unresolved drama – dark secrets that were screaming to be uncovered. And then there are the things I can’t explain. Strange things keep happening around me. Happening to me. Is it because of Sebastian, the golden-haired stranger who showed up in town at the same time as I did? Or Ethan, the kid locals whisper plays with dark magic?
Maybe both. Maybe neither. But someone is definitely out to get me, and I need to figure out why, and fast… because I’m discovering powers of my own. Powers that I can’t contain. And no matter what I do or who is to blame, if I don’t discover the real reason my mother fled Ireland, more people are going to die.
MERMAIDS ARE REAL.
And they’re going to kill us all.
(This is part 1 of this book. The book in its entirety will be available next month and you can preorder it for $0.99 here.)
Soulmate by Kellie MCAllen
Most people search for decades to find their soulmate; Rachel Masterson was born with hers.
Rachel is fed up with being known as the crazy girl who talks to herself, so she’s thrilled when moving to a new town gives her a chance at a whole new identity, without the stigma of her “imaginary friend,” Rider, the soul who has shared her body for the last fifteen years.
Hit with the triple-whammy stress of trying to make new friends (and her first boyfriend) in a new school, far away from the only other person who has ever understood her, Rachel’s relationship with Rider is strained by the choices that she makes. When a tragic accident tears them apart, can Rachel live without her soulmate?
If you like unique and fascinating paranormal romance stories that make you laugh, cry, and cheer all on the same page, you’ll love Soulmate!
Shadowed Truth by Wendi L. Wilson
He was handsome, charming, and sweet- everything Elaine could have asked for- but he also had a secret. One that would rip them apart just when they should have been starting their lives together.
Elaine is living a decent life when a charming scoundrel named Darren asks her out, sight unseen. She tries to resist him, but her attempts prove futile when he slips under her defenses and crawls into her heart. A shocking surprise leads to a string of confessions, misunderstandings, lies and betrayal. Sometimes, to do the right thing, you have to sacrifice your own happiness. Sometimes, it all works out in the end. Sometimes, it doesn’t.
A companion novella to the Shadowed Series, this story follows Melanie’s parents, Elaine and Darren, their whirlwind romance and the series of events that led to their ultimate separation.
**This story includes facts and surprises revealed at the end of Shadowed Strength, book 1 of the series and is meant to be read after Shadowed Strength.
Happy Reading and have a great holiday season!
