Tripoli’s Target is the second book in the wildly popular Justin Hall spy thriller series.

Justin Hall and Carrie O’Connor, Canadian Intelligence Service Agents, find themselves in lawless North Africa on the trail of an assassination plot. The target is the US President, and the hit is scheduled to take place during a G-20 summit in Libya’s capital, Tripoli. But the source of their information is the deceitful leader of one of the deadliest terrorist groups in the area. Ambushes and questionable loyalties turn an already difficult mission into a dark maze of betrayal and misdirection.

Forced to return to Tripoli, Justin and Carrie dig up new intelligence pointing to a powerful Saudi prince bankrolling the assassination plan. What’s worse, Justin and Carrie realize something crucial is very, very wrong with their plan. The summit is only forty-eight hours away and they still have to stop the Saudi prince, dismantle the assassination plot, and save the life of Tripoli’s target.

{Updated with Winners} THE SATURDAY GIVEAWAY: Win 1 of 3 Kindle Copies of Theresa Ragan’s 5 Novels!

Happy Saturday!

It’s time for a Frugal eReader Giveaway!

{Congratulations to the winners of the The Guardians of Eden series Giveaway!}

See below for how to win one of 3 Kindle Copies of each of the 5 below novels, sponsored by the author Theresa Ragan!... but first, a little about the novels:

A Knight in Central Park

The year is 1499. As Alexandra Dunn’s farmhouse is set ablaze, her grandfather places precious stones in her palm, telling her she has until the next full moon to return with a hero…a brave, chivalrous knight to help save her family. Familiar objects become a blur as she is swallowed in darkness. Suddenly Alexandra is standing in the middle of Central Park, but she has no time to ponder on the wondrous powers of the stones or the amazing sights before her…she must find a hero before all is lost.

Joe McFarland would be the first to admit that he’s far from hero material…definitely not the man she’s looking for. A firm believer of quietude and non-violence, he avoids conflict at all costs. At thirty-four, he is one of the younger Professors at NYU where he lectures and teaches History: The High Middle Ages. Joe’s main goal in life is to gain membership into the Medieval Academy, a highly distinguished group of archaeologists and historians. He believes membership will bring him respect and recognition…but what he really wants is to be reunited with his father; a man who has spent his entire life searching for the Black Knight, the last of the medieval knights.

 

Joe’s organized, well-structured life begins to unravel the moment he meets Alexandra Dunn. He figures she majored in medieval history before going off the deep end…until days later when he is miraculously transported through time, to 1499 England. Dressed in Dockers and a button down shirt, Joe thought he was ready for anything…anything but this! An armored man with a very authentic looking broadsword is about to strike him down. With only nail clippers and a Bic to defend himself, Joe has no time to think about such an implausible phenomenon as traveling through time…not if he wants to live to see another day.

Return of the Rose

Twin sisters are born in Medieval England. One of the infants is dying and is taken to the Witch of Devonshire, who uses supernatural powers to transport the ailing babe to the future. It is the year 1986 when Cathy Hayes, a woman who has lost her child and husband in a car accident, finds the baby at her doorstep, gets her the medical attention she needs, and raises the baby as her own. Morgan grows up in the twentieth century with a mysterious attraction to a hollow suit of armor that stands in the window of her mother’s antique store.

Morgan is twenty-four years old when she becomes entangled within the armor’s metal plates and is whisked back in time where she is mistaken for Amanda Forrester, a twin sister she knows nothing about. In Amanda’s place, Morgan is forced to marry King Henry’s favored knight, Derek Vanguard, Lord of Braddock Hall. Abandoned by his mother and having failed as a child to gain his father’s love, Derek’s heart is as cold as the stone walls of his castle.

 

In the end, Morgan discovers the true power of love and for the first time in her life she knows where she belongs.

Finding Kate Huntley

During a vacation in the Caribbean, fifteen-year old Kate Huntley’s father, a prominent U.S. scientist, is murdered before her eyes. For the next ten years Kate grows up alone in Haiti, one of the most dangerous and poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere. Not a day goes by that she doesn’t think of her father. Kate pushes herself to become stronger, mentally and physically. Every day is a struggle for survival. And yet she lives for only one reason…revenge.

While looking for a drug lord via satellite in Port-au-Prince, Haiti’s capital, Jack Coffey, rookie FBI agent, spots Kate Huntley. Jack is sent by the agency to find Ms. Huntley and bring her back to the States. They have many unanswered questions about her father’s death. A professional and responsible man, Jack is confused by Kate’s lack of cooperation. He wants to help her return to the States where he believes she’ll be safe, but she treats him like the enemy and refuses to go. Everything about her is a contradiction. She looks fragile and innocent, but every time he turns around she’s putting another thug in his place. In the beginning Jack wonders if Kate’s distrust of his superiors is warranted or just simple paranoia. In the end, Jack realizes nothing is as it seems.

Taming Mad Max

Max Dutton, a starting NFL linebacker for the Los Angeles Condors, is certain he’s going to die young since his father and grandfather both passed away at an early age. Believing his life will be cut short, Max lives every moment to its fullest. For this reason, Max also shies away from forming close relationships. What would be the point of falling in love and starting a family only to leave them as his father left him and his sisters?

Nutrition expert, Kari Murphy, used to think Max Dutton was to die for. She’s older and wiser now, but then she’s hired by the NFL franchise to follow Max around for a couple of weeks and give him healthy-eating advice, foolproof facts about carbohydrates and tasteful tips on cooking and shopping smart.

Kari Murphy must work side by side with the guy she spent one spectacular night with during high school…the guy she pined after for way too long.

Too bad he doesn’t remember her.

 

Taming Mad Max finaled in RWA’s 2008 Golden Heart competition under the title, Better Late Than Never.

Having My Baby

“Mr. Baylor,” the officer said, “have you ever met either of these women?”

Derrick’s mind was numb, but somehow he managed to say, “No. Never.”

“You’re making the ladies nervous, and truthfully, you’ve got me wondering too–what is your business with this woman?”

Derrick pried his gaze from the woman’s stomach and raised his eyes to hers. “She’s having my baby.”

~~~

Growing up, Jill Garrison never daydreamed about having the perfect wedding. Instead, she dreamt about having a baby. Boy or girl, it didn’t matter. Unfortunately, her fiancé can’t have children. Determined to realize her lifelong dream of having a baby, Jill spends years searching for a company (CryoCorp) that provides high quality donor sperm. Everything is right in Jill’s world until her wedding day when her fiancé leaves her at the altar to be humiliated before friends and family. She doesn’t waste any time moving from New York City to California to start over. And she keeps her appointment with Cryocorp. She may never have the wedding or the husband, but nothing is going to stop her from having a baby. She’s tired of everyone telling her what to do. The baby she’s carrying is hers and hers alone. Nobody can take that away from her.

 

Or can they?

{Congratulations to the winners of the Somebody Doesn’t Like Sarah Leigh Giveaway!}

See below for how to win one of 5 eCopies of Return of the Legacy and 5 eCopies of Dragon Rider’s Gift, sponsored by the author KH LeMoyne... but first, a little about the novels:

Return of the Legacy

Three magical dimensions…Two mystical bloodlines…One undeniable destiny.

Born a magical empath, Logan MacKenzie has spent his life protecting his family from discovery. Evil has found them anyway. What begins as Logan’s search for answers on Earth becomes a race for survival in the magical dimension of Loci.

The battle to save those he cares about will reveal his true lineage—the bloodline of the Makir, one half of a pair of sentinels chosen to guard the mystical portals between dimensions. The price of his acceptance: a love he never imagined possible and a heartbreaking choice.

Her family attacked, her home destroyed, and now stranded on Loci, Briallen of Tir Thar, descendant of a magical race, has only to summon the power within her to return to her own dimension—or so she had hoped. Unfortunately, her powers aren’t cooperating, and the sorcerer bent on her family’s destruction will stop at nothing to possess her.

Raised without knowledge of the portals, the Makir guardians, or her own destiny, Bri takes a leap of faith in an alliance with Logan. Embracing an uncertain power and accepting his goals as hers offers her the only way home. If they fail, the consequences of allowing the portals to fall to evil are unthinkable—the destruction of every magical dimension throughout space.

Dragon Rider’s Gift

Tale #1 in the Dragon Rider Trilogy

Roark of Nedres spent his life absorbing lore, legend, and rumor to claim his dragon beast in order to save his people. Nothing has prepared him for the ultimate bond fate will demand.

Princess Nira Meriel Estar was born with the power of prophecy. Her most recent vision forecasts a dire fate for her people, promises few answers, and will deliver the country of Fyrhall a victorious future or crushing defeat.

Kraz, an ancient dragon of mythical power and knowledge, has eluded capture for a thousand years. However, only a dragon of great wisdom would consider an eternal bond to his warrior rider to save his dragon race.

Three souls. Two hearts. One courageous calling.

_______________________________________________________________

Thank you for spending some time with us Frugal eReaders! Can you please tell us a little about yourself?

First, thank you so much for having me. I love The Frugal eReader and am so glad for an opportunity to share on the site.  As for a bit about me … I am the mother of two sons and live near Houston, Texas. When I’m not writing, I love to garden. I also do cross-stitch and find both these activities very meditative and helpful in my writing endeavors.

When did you first know that you wanted to write? What inspired you to start?

I can nearly recall the exact instant. I was eleven, reading Wuthering Heights, and I was so moved by the story, so caught up in the eeriness and the heartbreak of Catherine’s and Heathcliff’s drama. It had happened to me before, but this time, I glanced up from the book and had the sense that I wanted to give others the gift I was being given. I wanted to create stories that would transport readers into another world, stories that would move them.

How would you describe the style of your writing?

I think what I write is broadly called commercial fiction and/or women’s fiction, although that would suggest it wouldn’t appeal to men and I don’t think that’s true. More narrowly, it is about families in jeopardy. Ordinary families in crisis and how they survive.  My logline reads: At the heart of every crime, there’s a family, someone you love….

From the description, The Volunteer is a story about families, how they are made, and how in one single, horrifying instant, they can be broken. I found the story line to be heartbreaking but thought provoking. Can you talk about how you came up with it?

I read in the newspaper about a man on death row who had called off his appeals and the State of Texas had granted his right to die. There was quite a debate then around the question of whether an inmate had the right to do this. People asked if it wasn’t just state assisted suicide and why should such a request be granted? Others claimed the inmate was only trying to call attention to himself and to mount some kind of protest against the death penalty. Others, including many inmates, were angry that he was asking to hasten a process that they felt was inherently wrong. I couldn’t stop thinking about the implications: How would his family feel? What would it be like to know the exact date of your death? What sort of mental and emotional process would lead someone to make such a request? What led them to commit the crime that got them on death row? Was there remorse involved in the request to die? What about forgiveness? Especially among members of the family? I really wondered about and wanted to look at these issues and the story just evolved from there.

What were the challenges of writing this novel?

The research was a big challenge in a couple of ways. It was easy enough to come by a lot of the public knowledge regarding death row, but not so simple to get a more realistic, inside view. I give credit to several sources for providing me with as close to an accurate picture as possible and I list them in my acknowledgements. But another aspect that was challenging was that so much of what I discovered was just devastating and sad so it was difficult to handle. I would find myself moved to tears over an inmate’s story or a family’s story.

What was your favorite part of writing The Volunteer?

I enjoyed developing Thomas’s relationship with Sophia, but truly, I loved writing all of it. It was very absorbing on so many levels. Speaking as a gardener, I didn’t mind a bit the afternoon or three that I spent researching Sophia’s roses!

What would you like the readers to take away from reading The Volunteer?

That forgiveness, while often difficult, is possible in even the worst situations, and that it is the only way to be free. Forgiving someone doesn’t mean you condone their acts only that you let yourself be free of anger and bitterness about those acts. It goes for ourselves, too. When we may have done a hurtful thing, it is possible to forgive ourselves and to find peace that way.

What was the creative process for determining the final title and cover for your novel?

The title came from the news articles I read. The inmate in them, and those like him, were labeled “volunteers” and I knew in that moment I would write about such a man and I would title the book after him in this role. As for the cover, it speaks to the pier Sophia visits and the danger of a child being left unattended. I wanted an image of a child in jeopardy that would suggest that left to their own devices, children often find themselves heading off an edge and into deep water. The image was meant to evoke concern, even fear for that child.

Are you working on anything currently that you would like to share? J

As a matter of fact, I’m excited to say that in the interim since publishing THE VOLUNTEER, and two other indie novels THE NINTH STEP and THE LAST INNOCENT HOUR, I signed with MIRA to write two new books. The first one, EVIDENCE OF LIFE, will come out in April of 2013. It’s the story of a woman whose family is presumed drowned in a flood. Unable to accept their fate, she goes in search of them only to discover that nothing she believed about the life she led was true. I’m working on the second one for MIRA now that is as yet untitled but will also concern a crime and a family in jeopardy.

Finally, would you like to leave us with one of your favorite passages from The Volunteer?

Some of my favorite passages happen late in the book and would maybe spoil the plot to quote, but one that I love, that seemed pulled from nowhere that was conscious, is the description of Sophia’s pier, the first time the reader goes with her when she walks there. Ever since writing that I have wished to have such a quiet, serene retreat myself, to walk through her moon gate and down the path, where the light is green and swimmy and shadows dart like fish.


Thank you so much for taking the time to let us learn more about you and your book! I wish you the best!

Thank you, Elizabeth. I appreciate the opportunity to share time with you and The Frugal eReader

_______________________________________________________________

At the heart of every crime, there’s a family … this fact drives Barbara’s fiction. Her novels are issue oriented, threaded with elements of suspense and defined by their particular emphasis on how crime effects families, the victim’s family, the perpetrator’s family. Her first indie novel, The Ninth Step, was published in August of 2011, and she hasn’t looked back since. The Volunteer came out in October of that year and The Last Innocent Hour, originally published in trade print, followed in November.

Currently Barbara is represented by Barbara Poelle of the Irene Goodman Literary Agency and under contract to MIRA for Evidence of Life, which will make its print debut in April 2013, and a second as yet untitled novel.

Although she once lived on the grounds of a prison facility in Kentucky (a fact that might explain the nature of her writing) she now resides near Houston, Texas. An avid gardener and reader, Barbara is the mother of two wonderful sons, who are an endless source of learning, laughter and joy.

The Volunteer

In the fall of 1999, psychologist Sophia Beckman is compelled by the court to give testimony on behalf of a death row inmate that results in his sentence being overturned. Haunted by secrets from her past, she avoids the media spotlight as much as possible, but soon, other prisoners’ families come seeking her assistance. One family in particular, the wife, children, and brother of Jarrett Capshaw, is especially insistent. Forty-one days ago Jarrett’s request to die was granted by the State of Texas, and he became a dead man walking, a man they call a volunteer.
Jarrett’s crimes were unusual, involving the theft of precious Mayan antiquities. Murder was never part of the plan, but murder is what happened. He pulled the trigger, and as little as he feels prepared for it, as much as he struggles with matters of the soul, he’s ready to die. It is the only way his family and the families of his victims will be free to move on. While Jarrett labors to find the words to say good-bye to those he has loved, Sophia finds herself drawn into a relationship with his wife and oldest son. It is Jarrett’s family she can’t resist and there will be a price to pay. But not even Sophia could have foreseen the outcome when the brutal truth is exposed, the unalloyed facts that, incredibly, will deliver Jarrett’s fate straight into her hands. 

The Volunteer is a story about families, how they are made, and how in one single, horrifying instant, they can be broken. It is a story about mothers and the lies they tell to protect their children, to keep them from being hurt. But what happens when the truth comes out anyway and nothing and no one is spared? Sometimes the truth has the power to break your heart, and in Sophia’s case it will also endanger her freedom and threaten everything she has ever believed about her life.

The Volunteer is available from Amazon for $2.99 or Borrow FREE w/Prime!

{Winners Chosen!} THE SATURDAY GIVEAWAY: 10 Kindle Copies of The Nameless Dwarf Omnibus & 10 of Cadman’s Gambit from D.P. Prior!

Happy Saturday!

It’s time for a Frugal eReader Giveaway!

{Congratulations to the five winners of the November Surprise Giveaway!}

See below for how to win one of 20 Kindle copies of The Nameless Dwarf Omnibus & 10 Kindle Copies of Cadman’s Gambit (SHADER), sponsored by the author D.P. Prior... but first, a little about the novels:

The Nameless Dwarf Omnibus contains the first three books of the highly acclaimed Chronicles of the Nameless Dwarf:

The Ant-Man of Malfen
The Axe of the Dwarf Lords
The Scout and the Serpent

Following the massacre of the dwarves in their ravine city, the Nameless Dwarf pursues the survivors to the brigand town of Malfen, where he learns they have crossed the mountains into the lands of nightmare. His only intention is to save his people from extinction, but he’s the last person they’d want to find them.

Cadman’s Gambit (SHADER)

Dr Ernst Cadman has led a quiet life, but that’s how he’s wanted it all these hundreds of years. With a secret like his, anonymity and caution are the best friends a man can have. Nothing could tempt him from the safety of his parasitic existence at the heart of the city of Sarum—at least nothing this side of the Abyss.

Cadman stakes everything on obtaining the artefact that once destroyed an entire civilization, but in so doing he draws the gaze of a sinister presence from beyond the stars.

Meanwhile, Deacon Shader, veteran of the war against the undead armies of the Liche Lord, has one last fight in him. This time it’s just a tournament, with the prize a sword steeped in myth. Win or lose, Shader intends to defy his Templum master and retire to the Abbey of Pardes.

When a horror from the past wrecks Shader’s monastic dream and leads him to plague torn Sarum, he finds an ancient power unleashed that imperils more than he could possibly imagine—a power now in the hands of Dr Cadman.

Gods tremble, and worlds will fall unless Shader can conquer his personal demons and accept the fate he’s been prepared for since birth.

“Cadman’s Gambit” is the first book of the six part SHADER series by D.P. Prior. An excerpt of Book 2, “Best Laid Plans”, is at the end of the Kindle version of this book. There are also excerpts from three other great fantasy books.

The Kindle version also includes the stunning cover art of Mike Nash, two beautifully rendered maps, and a clickable table of contents.

See below for how to win one of five Kindle Copies of November Surprise, sponsored by the author Laurel Osterkamp… but first, a little about the novel:

Twenty years
Six presidential elections
Two brothers
One consuming love affair
For Lucy Jones, the distinction between love and politics is hazy at best. Both can be all-consuming, and either can lead to a heart-breaking loss or an exhilarating win. Whatever the case, if you’re seen as a loser, you probably are one. Lucy first learns this lesson in 1988, when she’s a shy girl, battling a high school bully and rooting for Dukakis. Through the years Lucy will experience stunning victories and agonizing defeats as she makes the choices that define her. Meanwhile, she also struggles to define her relationship with Monty, who comes in and out of her life like the changes in public opinion. Is Monty simply a one-night stand, a kindred spirit, or the love of her life? And by 2008, can he offer her a change to believe in?
Over the course of twenty years and six presidential elections, Lucy grows and adjusts with the times. Filled with snarky political and pop-culture references, November Surprise is about the journey we take to believe in a  candidate, in love, and in ourselves.
November Surprise is a companion  piece to Campaign Promises, which is free on Amazon. They can be read in either order.
*WARNING – the political views expressed in this book  are fiercely liberal. If you’re a conservative, be prepared for your blood to boil.
