Why settle for ONE free eBook when you can get several…?

Story-Cartel-logo

Since I missed June and July’s free eBook Spotlight I thought I give another shout out to Story Cartel. Amazon and Smashwords are filled with eBooks priced at $0. One can’t beat FREE, especially with Summer demanding those endless ICEEs and splashes in the pool. But what is even better is the chance to try a book out before it is released. Here are a few that have caught my attention from the great selection of genres Story Cartel has to offer:

The White Death by Daniel Rafferty

thewhitedeath

Expires in less than 21 hours

A deadly virus sweeping across Planet Earth…

An Alien Council with questionable motives and unlimited resources…

A threat to humanity greater than anything before…

It’s a busy day for the new President of the United States. To ensure humanity has a future and take drastic global action to curb the spread of the virus, President Thomas Morgan turns to the only people he can trust to solve the crisis and save humanity: Section 51, a team of scientists and public servants — and one loyal alien named Freda — operating beneath Area 51 in Nevada.

As human populations begin turning on each other, desperate for survival at all costs, civilized societies across the planet begin to disintegrate. Governments crumble, chaos reigns, and death spreads like wildfire. Can the president and Section 51 thwart the real possibility of extinction … and handle the consequences of their heart breaking decisions?

 

The Accord by Karl J. Morgan

theaccord

Expires in 17 days

A chance encounter with Zeet of The Accord almost doomed our galaxy in Tears of Gallia. Dave Brewster travels to a forgotten planet to uncover their intentions. The cyborgs of The Accord were once human, but have long ago moved their brains into robots. Now their leaders are massive constructed planets, hosting millions of smaller cyborgs and billions of human slaves who serve as laborers and food.

But The Accord has a problem. The Magallenic Clouds are running out of metal to build more robots. Now they must invade our galaxy to recruit new Friends and to harvest the metal and feedstock of our worlds.

While the Free Society masses its starship fleet to fight back, Dave must find a way to slow them down, or somehow convince them to end their heinous reign of terror. The Accord is an epic tale of impending war against a vastly superior enemy. It is also a story of new love, enduring faith and the ultimate power in the universe.

 

Demon’s Daughter (Cursed Series Book 1) by Amy Braun

demonsdaughter

Expires in 10 days

 

Wanted by law enforcement. Chased by drug cartels. Hunted by demons…

Constance Ramirez has more than her share of problems when it comes to protecting her adopted sister, Andromeda. Especially since Andromeda isn’t fully human, and her strange powers are dangerous and out of control.

But Constance will do anything to keep her safe, which won’t be easy with bounty hunters hired by the drug cartel she betrayed looking to capture her, and savage monsters seeking to take Andromeda for their own dark purposes.

Being a big sister has never been so hard… Or so deadly.

May Free eBook Spotlight (Take 2)

As promised here is our second free eBook title recommendation for the month of May: The Sorcery Code (Volume 1) by Dima Zales.

From USA Today bestselling authors comes a captivating tale of intrigue, love, and danger in a world where sorcery is entwined with science . . .

18297486

Once a respected member of the Sorcerer Council and now an outcast, Blaise has spent the last year of his life working on a special magical object. The goal is to allow anyone to do magic, not just the sorcerer elite. The outcome of his quest is unlike anything he could’ve ever imagined – because, instead of an object, he creates Her.

She is Gala, and she is anything but inanimate. Born in the Spell Realm, she is beautiful and highly intelligent – and nobody knows what she’s capable of. She will do anything to experience the world . . . even leave the man she is beginning to fall for.

Augusta, a powerful sorceress and Blaise’s former fiancée, sees Blaise’s deed as the ultimate hubris and Gala as an abomination that must be destroyed. In her quest to save the human race, Augusta will forge new alliances, becoming tangled in a web of intrigue that stretches further than any of them suspect. She may even have to turn to her new lover Barson, a ruthless warrior who might have an agenda of his own . . .

Snow White Blood Red ( A Grimm Diaries Prequel #1 ) by Cameron Jace 

2940046212488_p0_v1_s260x420

What if all you knew about fairy tales was wrong?
I am the so-called Evil Snow White Queen. Did you ever bother to hear my side of the story? I have always wondered why you never asked about my name. Was I so superficial to you? So stereotypical and mundane? Why did you treat me as if I were just the monster of the week? You know what I think? You never had the time to really hate me. You wanted to hate me, long before you even met me. You wanted to scrape my existence and avenge your childhood princess by laying all blame on me. What if they didn’t call me the Evil Queen, what if I told you the real story from my point of view instead of hers, would you ever think of me as an angel? Could I ever make you care? I know that deep inside of you, you adore me,but you’re just scared, afraid to admit how much you love the Snow White Queen.

Synopsis

To ensure their survival on a hostile planet, an escaped prisoner and his hostage must forge a partnership that changes them from enemies to reluctant allies and – eventually – to lovers.

Last year, space smuggler Quinn Conlan was on top of the world. He had everything a man could want: a fast ship, a great crew, a gorgeous girlfriend, lots of money, and adventure and excitement around every corner.

That all changed when he agreed to ferry a shipload of weapons to the beleaguered planet Marica, currently under siege by Rhenian forces. Now he’s stuck in a prison camp on the moon Marica-3, subjected to weekly sessions with the camp’s “medical team,” and praying for a quick death before he breaks under the torture and spills everything he knows about the Marican resistance.

When the opportunity presents itself, Quinn takes a Rhenian med tech hostage and heads into the inhospitable interior of the small moon. There, he has to keep himself and Doctor Elsa Brandeis safe from the deadly flora and fauna, as well as hidden from the prison guards searching for them, all while formulating a plan for getting his crew out of prison, his ship out of impound, and everyone out of orbit.

But when Elsa professes her love, can Quinn take the beautiful doctor at her word, or will trusting her—and his heart—condemn him and his crew to an eternity on Marica-3?

Day Thirteen: (Gay Erotica)
Handy Men Do It Better By Dan Sexton

Synopsis

To handy men, Jake and Cory, building a relationship is a lot like designing a home or landscaping a yard. It’s hard work. You have to use just the right tool.

When these straight-acting laborers first meet, they release their manly tension over a few beers and something much more sordid than sparks fly. Their strong libidos aren’t used to experiencing feelings for another man, and it takes a few sticky situations before they understand the blossoming romance budding between them.

Cute and tatted twenty-something, Jake Honeywell, will do anything for his kid sister. He loves landscape design and longs to travel north one day to see the fall foliage. He’s recently come out—at least to himself and his sister—and this has him messing around with nearly every bud who fits his preference for big, tough, and macho.

Cory Hamilton meets all of Jake’s requirements…and then some. In addition to looking like a star athlete, Cory has experienced some financial success in real estate. Yet despite frequenting a luxury condo in the winter, he prefers the company of the working class and his modest trappings in North Carolina. He doesn’t want Jake to know too much too soon about his prosperous career.

Step one of any romance: lay a solid foundation. But, Jake and Cory have a few cracks to fill before they’re walking on sure footing.

Annalise Carroll learned the hard way that the entanglements of a relationship can too easily sidetrack her career.

But when she meets Xander Ward, a prominent pharmaceutical representative interested in her father’s company, Annalise finds herself helplessly distracted by his seductive good looks and irresistible charm. Her heart wants nothing more than to open to him—and so does her body.
But will Annalise allow herself to let go and embrace the intimacy? Will Xander’s motives prove to be as sexual as Annalise suspects them to be? And is it possible that Xander is hiding something from Annalise?
