When 15 year old Cassandra Miller is taken away from her abusive father, she is placed in the care of a family who has many secrets to hide, among them the fact that they are Merpeople with a long history of luring humans into the water to kill them.

Everything appears to be perfect but she sees telltale signs that things may be too good to be true.

Her new family, the Morgans, are obsessed with water but forbid her to go near it. Water is everywhere she looks, surrounding her. Lake Superior is her new backyard and aquariums make up the inside walls of her new house. Oddly enough they seem to be having fish everyday for lunch.

The Sons of Thor, a group of five young men who, have sworn to protect humankind with their lightning bolts. They have an understanding with the Morgans, that they will leave them alone as long as they leave humans alone.

Now that the Morgans have taken a human into their home to raise as their daughter, the agreement is broken.

Eric, one of the Sons of Thor, has fallen in love with Cassandra. He wants to take her away from them but they have the law on their side and he can't admit who they are without admitting who he is.

The two groups will have to set their differences aside and work together to protect Cassandra from her father, who is at large and wants his daughter back.

Cassandra just wants a chance to be a normal child. She doesn't want to jeopardize the love of her family for a mere guy.

Daughter of the Oceans is told in first person from both Cassandra's and Eric's prospective.

Hello everyone. Why not treat yourself by immersing your mind in stories set in the humid heat of the West African coast or the dry heat of the northern deserts. I have books on Kindle (and paperback except the novellas) they're all set in West Africa during the turbulent sixties and have great reviews.

The Up-Country Man Memoir 180k words. A personal account of the first one hundred days trapped inside secessionist Biafra (Nigerian Civil War). Second Edition.

The Last Bature (Batuuree) Fiction 102k words. The last white police officer in a failing ex-British colony faces many threats and situations when he tries to avert a national catastrophe.

Tribal Gathering Short stories 104k words. Greed, jealousy and ignorance are just some of the subjects in eight stand-alone stories with a twist.

The Mine My latest book. Fiction. 110k words. A British "diplomat" and a senior African police officer investigate a mass kidnapping, which leads to much more in a failing ex-British colony. A thriller/adventure story set in a background of secession, civil war and breathtaking corruption.

I have extracted three of the stories from Tribal Gathering as tasters, available at 89c each.
Boom Town A man steals a fortune under cover of war. 21k words
Hot Metal Strange goings-on in the forest. 16k words

Hi, I have reduced all my books to £0.99 - £1.02 (I entered £0.99 but Amazon popped up with £1.02!! Tax reasons so I have been told) Each story varies in genre. Maybe you will give them a try. Thank you.

All In
Driven by the lure of big money Carla uses her charms and skill at the poker table. Trouble is, she doesn't like to lose, and those who posed a threat meet an untimely death.

*
A 5* thriller full of twists and turns that hits the ground running and doesn't let up.

Hidden In Plain View
Gabriel Horn loved to kill, to watch the light slip from his victim's eyes.
When Sir Adrian Gold offered him £40,000 to kill the Prime Minister and his deputy he thought it was a joke.

History is more than about dates, it is about people.

Coming Home
The story of Thomas Elkin who at the age of fifteen signed up as sniper in World War One. His intention wasn't to fight for king and country. His was to die an honourable death and cheat the hangman's noose for causing the death of his recently conscripted brother. But death walks a crooked path.

Hi there,

I'm new to Amazon.de, and just had an amazing response by German readers to a promo. It was a real thrill to watch the download total for Germany rise and rise, and realise that there is such a fabulous group of avid readers eager for English-language books.
I don't know if this is the correct place to say it, but I just want to thank anyone who joined in. I'm hoping that you all enjoy it, and hoping that, one day, you could let me know what you think of it.

Best, and thanks again!

Roger Weston meint:
Action-Thrillers:

The Recruiter
"Great book, very very good action novel. This is one of those escapist novels that is hard to put down. Hope the author will stay with this character."

The Assassin's Wife
"I love a good woman heroine especially when they can outmanoeuvre experienced operatives! Using just a few tricks she picked up as a drama teacher and a whole lot of grit and determination she manages to really shake things up for the bad guys. I found this novel fast paced and action packed with interesting glimpses into the spy world. Highly recommended."

The Golden Catch
Usually read James Patterson...Fast moving, interesting, bit of romance

Irma Fritz meint:
Irretrievably Broken
Nora leidet noch unter der Scheidung von ihrem indianischen Mann, und sie ist mit Schuldgefühlen geplagt über den Schaden den sie einem Freund verursacht hat. Die Handlung von "Unwiederbringlich Gebrochen" führt uns aus dem Busch Land von Kanada, durch die Vereinigten Staaten, und zu einem Tatort in Deutschland, als diese multikulturelle Familie gegen Rassismus kämpft. Sind die Protagonisten in diesem Roman unwiederbringlich gebrochen?

Alexis Scott meint:
My kindle book 'THE YEARS' is free for a couple of days and some of you in Germany have downloaded already. I was born and brought up in Derry, N. Ireland and a teenager there at the time of Bloody Sunday in 1972 although I was not on the march. I have used the novel form and ficitious characters as I think fiction often works better, and is more interesting, than non-fiction. I used hundreds of the transcripts from the Saville Inquiry as part of my research for the book. After the free promotion has ended you can read a large free sample. My other published e-book is 'Deaconsbank' and 'Eating Wolves' is still (just) in print.

“Adflatus” is a book within a book with interactive features.

You can also buy or get for free via Kindle Owners' Lending Library:
Adflatus. Season 1. Episode 1. Pilot.
Adflatus. Season 1. Episode 2. The Apartment (The second way to continue the story after the “Pilot”. Each of the two “Episode 2” could be optional – you can either choose only one version of Episode 2 and create your own unique version of the book or read them both and get to know everything that could’ve happened with the main characters and find out all their backstories. In the last case readers should skip Joseph’s chapters as they are the same in both variants.)
