“The Titan Drowns” by Nhys Glover Is Permanently Free on Amazon

The sixth book in the “New Atlantis Time Travel Romance” series by Nhys Glover won the SFR Galaxy Award in 2013, and for good reason. One of the judges said: “Heroism and true romance set inside one of the most heart-rending tragedies of all time? Oh, yeah, that deserves an Award!”. However, those who haven’t read the first five books in the author’s series, should know that they are all standalones, so they can start with whichever they like. “The Titan Drowns” is a perfect start, especially since it is permanently free on Amazon.

The premise of this time travel romance novel is absolutely brilliant: a team of people who want to make a change in the world travel back to the past, on the Titanic, and their goal is to save all children by bringing them to the future. The three members of the rescue team couldn’t have been more different: Pia Rogaland is shy, insecure, and her only desire is to save the children, Elish Cork is feisty and loves adventures, and Karl Ontario is a lab geek who would rather spend the rest of his life in his medical facility. The fact that they are nothing alike makes them work together so well.

Their mission is by no means an easy one. Aside from the fact that they need to first identify the suitable targets, they also have to come up with a good explanation for their insane attempt of taking them to the future. It’s difficult to convince so many people that the unsinkable Titanic is nothing but a tragedy waiting to happen. Things get even more complicated when Pia falls in love with a man she is not allowed to save. Their romantic relationship plays out in a few, fateful days, and the fact that they are so perfect for each other makes the inevitable separation even more heart-breaking. What was supposed to be a rescue mission might turn into a death sentence for everyone involved.

Even though there have been so many books written on the Titanic theme, author Nhys Glover manages to bring something new and fresh to her story. Certainly, the best part is the romance, and fans of this genre will immediately fall in love with Pia and her lover from the past. There’s nothing more compelling in a novel than an impossible love story, and Nhys Glover has managed to take this theme to a whole new level. Readers will root for the characters and hope that a miracle will allow them to avoid the tragedy, and live happily ever after.

“The Titan Drowns” is one of those books which readers will want to reread and recommend to family and friends. It is one of a kind, and it is permanently free on Amazon, so don’t forget to download your copy.

“Fetish: What’s Yours?” – A Love Story in the Heart of Darkness by L.M. Reker

I believe we can all agree that what makes a thriller novel even more terrifying and exciting is the knowledge that it is based on real events. L.M. Reker’s newest novel, “Fetish: What’s Yours?”, is one of those books whose story was inspired from real life, which gives readers a sense of terror and realism. The author has combined fact with fiction so well, that it will be difficult to tell which parts of the story are real, thus making the book even more compelling and intriguing.

FBI Agent Augustus Drummond is the head of a special unit assembled to deal with the most horrible crimes imaginable. His team is well-trained and very efficient, and they are always ready to take on the most difficult cases. They investigate everything with a sharp eye, a clear mind, and just enough cold blood to be able to live their lives normally after all the horror they see during their missions. Agent Drummond is the best of them, and his insights are partially due to his brutal childhood. Instead of crushing him, the violence he had to endure opened his mind and taught him a lot of things about the world. He draws his power and understanding from his dark past, and he has never failed before.

Things are turned upside down when Sonia Connelly, a gifted agent, is added to Drummond’s team. The latest case they have to solve is very complicated, and it might just lead them to the darkest corners of a criminal’s mind. Will they be able to solve the puzzle and save innocent lives without letting themselves drawn into this world of the taboo and the unthinkable?

“Fetish: What’s Yours?” is a real page-turner that will keep readers guessing by offering them clues and inviting them to solve the case along with the characters. It is one of those books that are more than must-reads: it should be reread just to make sure that you got everything right. L.M. Reker is brilliant when it comes to building suspense, and readers must be warned that they are in for a couple of unexpected twists and turns. At the same time, he is very good with character development, which means that anyone will find it easy to relate to Agent Drummond and Sonia. While Sonia is very intelligent, talented, and determined, Augustus Drummond is continuously haunted by his violent past. Eventually, they make a great team and they prove to be the only ones who can solve the terrible case.

You can find “Fetish: What’s Yours?” on Amazon and on Barnes & Noble.

“Redemption” (“Heaven on Earth”, Book 2) by Reana Malori

Vanessa Baldwin has made it a point to avoid men who work in the Military. Her husband died far away from her, leaving her a widow with a young son, and Vanessa will never be able to get over the loss. All she wants is to raise her son well and build a peaceful future for both of them. However, her life is turned upside down when she meets Ethan Dickerson. He is everything she has ever wanted in a man: he is strong, romantic, protective, and he loves her son. His only flaw is that he is a Navy SEAL, which make his off limits. She’s not about to start a relationship with another man who is willing to risk his life to save others.

Ethan chose to become a Navy SEAL because it seemed to be the perfect job for someone like him, someone who lived to protect those who are not able to protect themselves. Tragedy was always part of Ethan’s life. As a child, he had to deal with domestic violence, and this changed him forever. The moment he meets Vanessa, he is fascinated by her resilience in the face of tragedy and loss, but, at the same time, he realizes that she is vulnerable and in need of love and protection. He makes it his mission to conquer her heart and spend his life making sure she and her son will never have to suffer again.

“Redemption” is the second installment in Reana Malori’s interracial romance series “Heaven on Earth”. It follows the story of two characters readers have already met in her first book, “Escape to Heaven”, and the author once again manages to tackle the issue of domestic violence in a unique way that aims to empower and encourage. Readers will immediately fall in love with her characters. Both Vanessa and Ethan are very relatable and well-developed. Reana Malori took her time to develop Ethan’s backstory, which gives the character depth, making readers understand him and root for him. Vanessa is also a strong female character that shows how women are powerful enough to survive any kind of tragedy.

Fans of interracial romance novels will want to remember Reana Malori’s name, as she is one of the most popular writers in this genre. Her “Heaven on Earth” series is a must read, as well as her other over 20 novels and novellas she has published thus far.

“Southpaw” by Dennis Sweeney FREE on Amazon – December 19-23, 2014

Thought-provoking, suspenseful, heart wrenching, gritty – these are just a few words that can describe Dennis Sweeney’s novel, “Southpaw”, and they certainly aren’t enough. This is one of those books that offer so much more than what the cover and synopsis promise. It’s one of those memorable novels that readers will think about long after they have turned the last page. “Southpaw” eludes all genres because it is so difficult to place in a single one. It has the depth and realism of literary fiction, but, at the same time, it is as action-packed and fast-paced as any suspenseful thriller out there. What is sure about it is that it is absolutely mind-blowing.

The main character is Dennis, a young Scottish boxer who has lived a life of crime and is now in prison, paying for his mistakes with his freedom. One could say that he is a product of the environment he grew up in. He was unfortunate enough to be the son of a boxing champion who had no mercy when it came to training him and his brother. Dennis grew up hating the sport and feeling inferior to his brother, who was more athletic and more skilled. However, it seems that this was his future, whether he liked it or not, so young Dennis tried to make the best of it in his own way. The novel follows his extraordinary journey. From Dundee, Dennis ends up in London, then Hong Kong, where his main occupation is to smuggle goods into Korea and gold into Taiwan. He later reaches Tokyo, where his drug addiction worsens, and he eventually ends up in prison in Bangkok. Knowing that he will be old by the time he gets out of prison, Dennis has nothing left to do but to think of his life, of what he did wrong, and try to achieve some kind of redemption.

Author Dennis Sweeney is a brilliant and talented writer. He has created some powerful, complex characters that truly develop as the action unfolds. The way he describes the places and people Dennis sees as he gets more and more involved with boxing, prostitution, and drugs makes the background and atmosphere extremely realistic and believable. There will be moments when readers will stop to ask themselves if what they are reading is indeed just fiction, not reality.

Readers will root for the main character even when they will realize that everything he does is harmful to others and himself. Thus, “Southpaw” is a powerful novel that invites them to discuss problems of morality, ethics, and what’s right and wrong.

“Southpaw” will be free on Amazon starting December 19 through December 23, 2014, so don’t forget to download your copy.

We all know how important creativity is. A brilliant idea can change your life or make you rich. Even better, it can do both. But, the question is: how do we find it? For some of us it seems difficult enough to find one amazing idea that would change at least a couple of things which don’t work well in our lives, so how many people are able to come up with more brilliant ideas that can also influence the ones around them? Jen Fraser, the author of “Everyone’s a Genius: Simple Tips to Boost Your Brilliance Now”, says that each and every one of us has this extraordinary ability. We are born creative, intelligent, and capable of wonderful ideas. All we need to do is learn how to use our gifts.

A truly inspiring Foreword written by award-winning author Piers Anthony opens Jen Fraser’s book. He talks about the supposed connection between IQ and genius, and reminds readers that some of the most successful businessmen and entrepreneurs don’t even have degrees. Moreover, Albert Einstein himself failed some exams, and his IQ was never tested. So, what exactly makes someone a genius? Piers Anthony is in complete agreement with Jen Fraser when she says that curiosity triggers the best ideas. The secret is to keep an open mind, welcome new experiences, believe that nothing is impossible, and never stop asking questions. Creativity comes when we try to find answers and solutions to those questions, and even if some of them will prove to be erroneous, undoubtedly, we will come up with at least one brilliant idea that can change everything.

“Everyone’s a Genius: Simple Tips to Boost Your Brilliance Now” is structured in a simple, yet compelling way. There are eleven chapters that guide readers and help them discover the creativity within them and the possibilities around them. Here and there, the author introduces motivational quotes attributed to famous people who have been successful in their own ways. The book also contains amazing illustrations that immediately draw the readers’ attention and help them better understand the points the author makes in each chapter. In writing her book, Jen Fraser has opted for a combination of motivational techniques, interactive games, and honest, direct questions that force readers to analyze their thinking and behavior, and figure out what they are doing wrong.

The author recommends herself as an Ideation Expert, the term “ideation” being the creative process of generating, developing, and communicating new ideas. Her main goal is to teach people how to find new solutions and come up with innovative ideas that are worth putting into practice. It’s not all about daydreaming and planning, but it’s also about acting once you’ve discovered a way of improving your or someone else’s existence.

“Everyone’s a Genius: Simple Tips to Boost Your Brilliance Now” is a must-read for anyone, regardless of age or education. It’s truly one of those books that can change lives.
