Today’s inspiration includes authors new to me with stories originating from fresh directions. Like this first one.
Falling for the Foe It’s been awhile since I’ve read anything in this setting. It’s a bargain at $1.99 CDN, and possibly lower in the US. The first few pages have me looking forward to jumping into this story.
She can’t stand him. He blames her for his company’s woes. Now, they have to work together.
Nia has devoted her career to fighting for life-saving medicines for Ugandans with HIV. But when first-line treatments begin to fail, she must find a new source of affordable drugs before patients start to die. Too bad she just publicly bashed the head of a pharma company that owns a powerful new anti-HIV drug.
Magnus is poised to market a game-changing HIV drug, but an avalanche of bad PR threatens to destroy his company’s reputation and kill his bottom line. When he travels to Uganda to boost his social justice credentials, he’s not expecting to feel such a deep attraction to the woman whose viral blog post led to all his troubles.
To get what they want they must work together. He’s out to rescue his company and she’s trying to save lives. Neither dreamed their hearts would be on the line.
Another new author/story, a bargain at $1.32
No Longer Alone: Based on a True Story
Manhood arrived prematurely. At the tender age of fifteen, Prentis lost both his father and his confidence that God loved him. He grew up fast after that day, abandoning his education to take on the responsibility and hardship of supporting his mother and siblings.
Now, in Prentis’s twenties, Avery reenters his life. A Sunday School teacher with a passion for learning and theology, she is intelligent with a captivating spirit. Prentis finds her irresistible. The audacity of attempting to court such a woman in no way weakens his resolve. He’s determined to win her heart. But male competition, vicious gossip, Avery’s unspoken fears, and the ruin of his livelihood hinder his efforts. How can Prentis win her? And if he does, how will they overcome their differences, the hard life on the Oklahoma plains, and a world at war?
There are some other bargain books appearing alongside these books but they are much the same as most of the other books we’ve seen lately. I gave them a pass, for now.
Personally, I’ve downloaded the first of these two because I think there is a good chance I will read all of it. The second one, I’m not feeling as confident so I didn’t go for it. I can see where some of you may think it’s worth the read though.
My current read ended last night and I find myself between books, which is fortunate for me. Falling for the Foe will definitely be up next.
