Ranger Wyatt Sheridan is called in when a teenage girl at the Beacon of Hope school, which was founded to help former teen prostitutes find a way off the streets, is found dead. He and the school’s director Kate Winslow team up to find out who might be trying to disrupt the school’s worthy mission.


Sheridan has a teenage daughter of his own, so he’s extra-determined to bring justice to the human traffickers who are preying on young girls. And when Kate is kidnapped, and Sheridan’s daughter is terrorized, nothing will stop the tenacious Ranger from putting an end to the evil.

Free Fridays Recommends


Each week, we ask our featured author to recommend a book or author that you may want to check out. Since authors are such passionate readers themselves, we thought you might like to find out what they love to read, too! Here’s what Margaret recommends:

Yes, the list of qualifying books is the same - you choose one from that list to purchase and then choose the free book from the same list.

The two for one deal is to get us Nook owners, who no longer feel the need to visit the brick and mortars, to come back and visit.  I went by yesterday for another reason after months of not seeing the inside of the store, and found out that all Nook covers are now $15 an under.  I think I paid $40 for my first Nook (the Nook Classic) cover.  B&N is looking for new and innovative ways to stay alive and they know that Nook owners are loyal to their brand so we will spend money when we go into the stores, even if it's only for lunch or coffee at the Starbucks. I applaud them for the effort (because I love going into a bookstore!)

The reason behind the BOGO in-store is that BN is on a list of the top 5 businesses to close in the next 5 years. The Nook is the biggest thing that is keeping BN open. I really feel for people who live hours away from a BN building, I've lived in small towns before. I have 2 within 10 minutes from my door (phoenix suburb). In the last 2 years I have only gone there a handful of times and every time it was to buy a Nook or accessories, and also to have problems fixed.

to  wvdeedee or others who do not live near a store...why not join my nook friends on the BH website under manage my nook...you can borrow books other people have that you do not in yours...i realize it is now owning it but get to read a lot of material for free that others have in their libraries and share what you have. I have been exposed to a lot of material with friends I might not have chosen my self! very grateful for this option! feel free to add me as a friend and if I have any books you want to borrow help yourself! :smileyhappy: happy readin!

I, too, live quite far from a brick-and-mortar B&N. I live in Baja and order books online to be brought to me by loved ones, and constantly upload to my Nook. If B&N would like to extend the offer to online orders as well, I could participate in the BOGO. I only come to California every few months.

So glad it is Friday! Don't like the in store special tho......makes no sense for me to drive 3 hours one way to get that second book. Hope all of you that live close to a store get to tho. Have a great (wish it were warm!!!) weekend. Thanks guys!!

First, thanks to Jeremy everyone else who took the trouble to post the free books.


Re: "We can't let our bookstores die!!!" Why Not??!! If not for them I wouldn't have to pay more for the books that I purchase on B&N than the ones I purchase on Kindle.


If the law makers and the brick and morter store owners have their way, soon I will be paying tax on my Kindle books...as if I don't already pay enough taxes!!!

Thanks to all of the free Nook listings!  Just a heads-up, The Burning City by Alaya Dawn Johnson is not free as listed by butterfly13.  The Nook price is actually  $10.16.

Boomer1949, I cannot find the location you are referring to. I only find the friends I have entered. What am I overlooking?

by SandyCWV on ‎05-03-2013 02:19 PM

Thanks for the free Friday books and apps. The 2 for 1 Nook book purchase in the store is a silly idea. It should be obvious that many of us Nook owners do not live near a B&N store. If I happen to be near one I will look at what is available. Maybe that is your whole goal. A benefit that doesn't get used too much. This is just like the membership problem. $25 membership for things I don't want to buy. No I didn't renew after figuring out you didn't want to sell me Nook books as a member.

Perhaps if enough Nook owners voice our disappointment that BOGO will only be for those lucky enough to live near a store, BN will consider offering us something, too.

thanks to everyone that posted free books today. I love my Nook books,but been working 60 hours a week and only find time to read in small bits of time. I also think that the BOGO offer is to bring people into the store. I, like a lot of folks, do not get into the store as often as I would like to.

  First, thanks for Free Fridays and the wonderful selection you do with this Jeremy.  Also thanks to everyone else who posts free books here. 


 Now for the "gripe session".  I, too, have an issue with the BOGO being only in the B&N Store for the Ebooks.  Not having to drive to the store is one of the things that makes it so nice to have a Nook.  Also the nearest B&N near me is 70 miles away.. Not so handy to run to just for a book sale.  Just last month, I spent about $50.00 online browsing through Ebooks.  Please B&N, consider those of us who are loyal customers that for different reasons can't make it into the store.  On top of it being a long way off, I am disabled and not always able to get someone to go with or take me to the store. 


Thanks for the opportunity to say my two cents worth.  I do hope B&N will take notice. 


And to all my fellow FF blog readers and posters!  I hope you have a lovely weekend!

I makes Friday even more than TGIF!
