Roundhouse kick your way through 61 levels of Pick up n’ Play gameplay with an engaging storyline and awesome visual effects – plus leaderboards to show off your kung-fu skills to other martial arts hopefuls.

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 Ella recommends:


If you’ve never read Mary Jo Putney’s books, you’re missing out! She is one of my must-read authors. Her latest release, book #5 in her Lost Lords series, Sometimes a Rogue, is a wonderful example of her storytelling abilities. Her writing is elegant and her historical accuracy is spot on. Once you start, you’ll be hooked forever.


Rob had no idea what he was getting himself into when he volunteered to rescue Sarah who had saved her heavily pregnant twin sister from an anti-British terrorist group and was taken instead. The sizzling, sensual tension between these two strong-willed people as they race across Ireland to escape was done with a skilled hand, and their happily ever after was all one could wish for.


Not only is Mary Jo a great writer—having won several RITAs and other awards, including Romance Writers of America Life Time Achievement Award—she is a fantastic person as well. I had the privilege and the pleasure of meeting her this past summer, and she immediately offered to help me solve a problem I was having.

Yay it is Friday! Thanks for the heads up on all the great books.

I always appreciate the chance to get free books and try out authors I haven't read. Thanks to B&N and to all those who contribute here ... Fridays are special because of you.

I can download the books just fine, but on my nook HD+ the apps are a problem. I click "add to cart" but it won't add!

I usually have to go to the "shop" on my nook HD to add the apps. No problem there with it.

For SuzW - add the app by using the internet on the tablet.  Don't try to add it thru your computer like you would a book.  I had the same problem and this was what I was told by B&N support.

Nothing for me this time, not even from spec. But I'm happy for the variety. I know many people like romances and action games. I'm sure I'll find something else to load onto my overflowing Nook again next week. :smileyhappy:

Oh well, nothing for me today. Believe or not, I'm reading a dead-tree form of a book! Cannot swipe to turn the page and have to use a bookmark. Stoneage.
