Free Books and A Little More

Do you like American westerns! Then I want to introduce you to a new author that was brought to my attention the other day. Robert James Dellamano. I have only ever read one western so I haven't read this myself. Not my genre, but I might get it read yet!

Synopsis:
Parsen Holt is an experienced gunslinger just passing through town. When his horse comes up lame, he's forced to stay longer than he wants. And longer than the town wants, as well.

Little did he realize circumstances would turn violent in a way that could cost him his life!  Will he make it out alive?

Parsen Holt - Slinger, is a gripping story of the old west, as told by the up-and-coming new author, Robert James Dellamano.

Here are two ebooks for free. Don't know how long for though. One is a murder mystery and one a romance.

LADY FALLS is the first book in the anticipated Black Rose Trilogy by Renee Bernard! Set in 1872, the saga is a sensual exploration of revenge, power and beauty in Victorian England. "Revenge" meets "Upstairs/Downstairs" as this historical romance defies all the rules and pushes readers to enjoy a woman's "fall" like no other. Raven Wells emerges as a Force of Nature as these books unfold!

book 1 in series
There's a serial killer loose in America's National Parks.   Greyson Beauchene, Head Ranger of Alaska's Denali National Park is certain he will never have to deal with that because his park is too 'out of the way'.  However, Ranger Beauchene soon finds out he is dead wrong.
Greyson and his two assistants are flown by helicopter into a remote section of the park where hikers have found a casket, one of the biggest indicators the serial killer has found Denali.  Greyson's team is joined by one incredibly irritating and extremely demanding FBI Profiler and her two Agents.  Very good at what she does, Aspen O'Connell sets out to take control of the crime scene and everyone involved in it, and Greyson is having none of it.
Greyson, Aspen and their teams must work together to find this killer before he kills again.  Events move quickly as the group pieces together clues from the crime scene and a profile is established.  As they work through abduction attempts and visible threats, Greyson and Aspen struggle to put their growing feelings for each other in a place that will keep them focused on finding an evil, evil, man, and bring justice to innocent victims.

  1. I read a Western once in a while, but it's been a while. The mystery set in Denali sounds interesting.

    1. I remember as a kid my dad and my brother listening to Pecos Bill books on recordings from the library for the blind and laughing and laughing. My brother LOVES westerns. He is blind and gets his books from the library for the blind in digital now. Use to come on these huge cassettes!
