When Eleanor learns that her time is running out, she reaches out to her estranged daughter and the grandchild she's never met, hoping to make amends. With the help of an elaborate plan, she intends to make memories that will last them a life time, and a legacy that will continue to provide for them long after she has gone. But the one thing that Eleanor has forgotten is that her daughter can be just as stubborn as she is. Will she be able to reunite with her daughter, while still keeping her biggest secret?
Very sweet and uplifting read.
I don't think I added the link to Queen's Blade last time...it's still free (as it is part of a series)...a good read IMHO, if you are into fantasy(ie Robert Jordan, Carol Nelso Douglas early works, David Eddings), you might enjoy this...I was impressed by the plot, the description of the setting (considering she had to make the world up on her own, making it sound realistic), the depth of the characters and their motivations...
This book is 2.99 at BN and Amazon (4 stars at Amazon too) but it is FREE at Smashwords.
When Travis Maguire chases his dog into Washington, D.C.’s Rock Creek Park wilderness, he finds more than the dog -- he discovers a camera with photos of a mysterious black triangle that crashed in the woods. Obsessed with the photos, Travis searches for the wreck with two friends: beautiful Lexie Collins, who’s convinced a UFO came down outside the city, and her skeptical brother Burke.

Kingdom of Fire is the first book in the epic new high fantasy series which chronicles the final war between the crumbling human empire of Werstria and the savage and unrelenting horde of the orcs at their border.
In the first book of the Sword of Fire saga, the epic struggle for survival is told through the eyes of a newly enlisted soldier named Markus, who experiences the crushing defeat of the western empire as the horde of Karsian orcs led by the dreaded Prince Ozturk, smash through the Werstrian defences. Only the bitter onset of winter slows their invasion. Markus, the only survivor of his regiment, battles desperately to stay alive. Driven deep into the infamous Salbein Mountains, he befriends the most unlikely of allies. With only a few months until the counter-offensive of the spring, he must seek the help of a mysterious wizard and lord who has lived in solitude for hundreds of years.
With the aid of the most unlikely of friends, Markus must venture into hostile lands to save the empire from destruction, faced with the terrifying knowledge that the orcs of Karsia have unearthed and harnessed the power of the Dragons of bygone ages. Markus fights the class struggle of his people, the bitter hatred of the orcs and the dreadful wrath of Dragons in his personal quest for revenge.
Kingdom of Fire is a classic work of high fantasy set in the midst of a brutal war of epic proportions.

This is a book of trivia facts the author made up. It's a funny short read. But the really funny thing is to read the reviews of people who can't decide if it's real or not.
This is the sequel to Fifth Avenue:
TWELVE PEOPLE TARGETED FOR DEATH...
Five years ago, each person sold out to the SEC and took the stand against Maxmilian Wolfhagen, the infamous arbitrageur who robbed the world of billions and brought about the collapse of the stock market. Now, with Wolfhagen out of prison, one by one, each is dying a grisly death.
TWO ASSASSINS WITH ONLY 48 HOURS TO CUT A SWATH OF MURDER AND REVENGE THROUGH NEW YORK...
With the time restrains so tight, the challenges are massive--but so are their ruthless skills.
MARTY SPELLMAN IS ON THE CASE...
Hired by the writer Maggie Cain to investigate Wolfhagen for a biography she's writing about him, private investigator Marty Spellman soon learns that all isn't what it seems as the twists pile up along with sheer number of the dead. His life is put on the line. His family is threatened. No one is who they appear to be. Who can he trust as the bulls of Wall Street start to run as the two assassins fully ignite their killing spree?
I HAVE read this one and then purchased the next one in the series. I see there's another one now.

Last year after falling through the ice, seventeen-year-old Abby Craig woke up from death.
But she woke into a world she barely recognizes. She can’t see colors, memories have been erased, and her friends all hate her. And then there’s Jesse, who she loves, but who refuses to forgive her the one mistake she made long ago.
Just when she thinks it can’t get any worse, the visions begin. In them, she sees a faceless serial killer roaming the streets. While the police believe that there have been a lot of accidents in town lately, Abby knows differently. And she soon realizes that it’s up to her to find him.
But to stop him, she’ll have to confront more than just the killer. She’ll have to face something else that was lost in those dark waters. The truth.
In the tradition of Amanda Hocking, 44 is a thrilling paranormal romance mystery novel that keeps readers at the edge of their seats and glued to the very end. The ending will haunt you forever.

Donovans of the Delta Series, Book One (Special Holiday Price)
When Martie Fleming breezed into small town Pontotoc, Mississippi, determined to settle down and teach jazzercise in her home studio, she never expected to land next door to the minister. She never expected her playful golden retriever to steal his shorts right off the clothes line. And she certainly never expected to fall in love.
Everybody in town would agree they are so wrong for each other – everybody but Paul Donovan. With her gypsy outfits, her lively music and her irrepressible spirit, Martie is exactly the angel the preacher needs. But can he convince her? Can their love and his career survive the small town gossip and the fireworks Martie creates wherever she goes?
This is the first of a five-book romantic comedy series originally published by Loveswept and considered to be their definitive family series. The sequel to Donovan’s Angel is Sleepless Nights.
can't personally vouch for this as I haven't read it yet...but it has an average 4 star rating with 149 ratings and that's better than many of the non-smashword titles, including the big 6.
