Free and bargain books June 05, 2020

This is a good day for new book suggestions!

BookRunes has a FREE offer for us. Another author new to me.  It’s fun finding new people to enjoy. I’m hoping this will prove to be one more great experience.

The Lost Art of Reverie: (Aveline Book 1)

The Lost Art of Reverie

Amazon quote:

An inheritance. A long-forgotten dream. A new life in a spacious place.

Corporate life has not been treating Katie Grace well. Suffering from extreme anxiety due to a recent incident at work, she learns that she has inherited her late grandmother’s Victorian house in the lake town of Aveline, in the rolling hills of the Los Padres National Forest. Maybe a new start will be exactly what she needs.

Hardware store owner Sam Grant remembers Katie from when they spent summers together, years before. Sam has determined never to get involved in a relationship again, but working on Katie’s house renovations might put that resolve to the test.

In Aveline, Katie allows herself to dream again, finding solace in creating food and a space for her new friends to gather. As members of the town welcome Katie, her heart begins to find safety, but will the events of the past repeat themselves?


An author appearing here frequently has a book release set for Oct 13th and it’s on pre-order at the bargain price of $1.38.

Marry Me for Real, Cowboy: (Cavanagh Cowboys Romance Book 1)

Marry Me for Real

Amazon quote:

Adam Cavanagh’s rodeo championship tastes like dirt after a competitor’s critical injury, but going home to his family’s Montana ranch isn’t much of an improvement. If not even the coveted trophy earns his stepfather’s respect, what will it take?

Riley Dunning’s quick thinking is all that’s keeping her body, soul, and principles together, but demanding a kiss from a hunky cowboy to deter the weirdo following her might be taking things too far… especially when the cowboy comes up with a risky plan that might offer them both stability. If it doesn’t backfire completely.

Will a fake engagement give Adam and Riley the leg up they each need, or will the cost to their hearts be too high? Because neither believes the other will want to marry them… for real.


An interesting bargain in the suggestion line-up. I’ve recently downloaded one other book by this author.

The Billionaire’s Commitment: (The Billionaire Club Book 6) $1.39 

The Billionaire's Committment

Amazon quote:

Living in New York was too expensive, so when the medical bills pile up Ensley Morgan lets the dartboard choose where she’s going to live next. When fate chooses Texas she doesn’t look back, until a handsome doctor weasels into her life—and her heart. But falling for her doctor comes with a price she’s not willing to pay.

Peter Bridgeport has dealt with many stubborn patients, but never one so uncompromising as Ensley. Her life hangs on her last treatment option, but she refuses treatment because of the cost. He’s never crossed patient boundaries until the determined redhead came into his life. Now he’s paying for her treatment anonymously and bumping into her out of the clinic.

When he saves her from more than her illness, their chemistry ignites. He realizes it’s time for her to see a new doctor. Only she finds out about his lies and wants nothing to do with him.

Now he needs to convince her to stay before a dart takes her out of his life as quickly as it brought her in it.

Second Chance at Love: (To Love and to Cherish Book 2)

Second Chance at Love

Amazon quote:

Three fun, feel-good, uplifting romances where childhood or teen sweethearts encounter each other and second chances when they least expect it! Be prepared to be swept up by these heartfelt stories into the world where past wounds can heal, humor is abound, and love is found again. This set includes a reunion romance, a single dad and best friends romance (previously published), as well as a never published before fairytale retelling.

SEASON OF JOY. A successful travel reporter returns home for the holidays, and sparks fly between her and her first crush, now a single father. When his youngest son writes a letter to God asking for a Mom for Christmas, she agrees to help him find the right woman. But can this reunion be a second chance for these best friends?

HOLD ME. Can she win the heart she shattered?
Divorcee Aileen McKenzie only wants to have a fresh start in her hometown with her son and their pets and to see her fledgling pastry store thrive. When she nearly drowns in a flood and her house and store are damaged, her first love-and the man she’d left over two decades ago-Roman Vela comes to the rescue. Old feelings resurface.
Over the next days, Aileen and Roman grow close until she might have to leave town-and Roman-again. Will a once-shy, risk-averse girl choose a safe life with guaranteed income or risk it all for love?

NOT YOUR CINDERELLA TYPE. Run away or claim her prince… what will she choose?
Once heartbroken and abandoned, Allie Reyes watches her former childhood sweetheart and the head of the corporation, Rodrigo Garza, from the shadows of cleaning the offices. Blackmailed to go to a masked ball, she meets him incognito and has the best evening of her life… until she leaves in haste. When she is later accused of a theft she didn’t commit, will she have the courage to stay and claim the love she didn’t hope for?


I’m still reading Alaskan Refuge Christian Suspense Box Set (Books 1-3) but I’ve moved on to book 2. It appeared in another collection somewhere along the line so I’m skimming through as a refresher before I move on to book 3. It’s still a bargain at $0.99 if you are interested.

Alaskan Refuge Box set

A woman hiding from the fatal mistakes of her past. A sister rescuing her autistic little brother from the clutches of danger. A mother confronting the demons in her past to rescue her kidnapped daughter.


You can tell spring is here. Hammers pounding, noisy equipment working on something I can’t see, things are happening. A welcome sign after the quiet of covid lock-down.

Happy Reading, on this good day for new book selections.
