Happy Wednesday, fellow reading addicts!
This month has sped past me! It’s already the last week of the month and March will be here, which means spring will be just around the corner.
Hopefully, that means all the snow outside will soon be melting for me, but that means I have a lot of yard work to do once that’s all gone. Yuck!
But until then, I can enjoy reading and snuggling up with blankets and cats. Always a plus, right?
If you’re looking for something new to read, check out this week’s offerings. Boxed sets, free books, series sales and more. I’m sure there will be something for you to enjoy!
Enjoy and happy reading!

“What do you know about the ZOO?”
Born from the fertile imagination of bestselling author Michael Anderle.
Get the complete Team Savage Series, all three books, as a boxset today!
Kill Or Be Killed:
The former sergeant took in a deep breath, tilting his head as he looked at the man in front of him.
“Unofficially? It’s a military experiment gone bad, with all the pros and cons that come with it. No official word was shared, of course. This means that I don’t officially know the source of the damn jungle starting to cover the Sahara Desert nicknamed the Zoo comes from some goop that was found on a missile that may or may not have alien origins.”
He stopped his explanation a moment and eyed the Retired Colonel in front of him, “Remind me, what is the government’s official stance on aliens again?”
Anderson smirked, “The jury is still out on that one.”
Jeremiah Johnson needs a job, and Retired Marine Colonel Anderson needs a man with Johnson’s particular skills.
Dead or Alive:
One might think that getting someone away from one of the most dangerous jungles in the world would be an easy task. But not if that person was Dr. Courtney Monroe.
Jeremiah Johnson needed a job, and Retired Marine Colonel Anderson needed a man with Johnson’s particular skills, and a team built to get the job done.
Vengeance Or Death:
“What do you know about the ZOO?”
That question started a black-ops operative down a different path.
“Do you know who I am?” Jenkins blurted without thinking. “Do you really think you can get away with killing a sitting member of the United States’ House of Representatives?”
“You put my family in the crosshairs of barbarians who wouldn’t think twice about using them as leverage to get to me,” the man stated calmly, and not a single hint of emotion crossed his face.
“You have a family, Congressman, one you appear to love a great deal. What exactly would you do to keep them safe?”
Was this a match made in Heaven, or Hell?
The answer depends on which side of Savage’s gun your people happened to stand.
The safe end, or the business end.
Inside the ZOO isn’t the only place people where people act greedy. Doctor Courtney Monroe has taken control of her Dad’s legacy – she merely needed two men to help make it happen.
Will Anderson and Savage stay up to the task?

The History of the World wasn’t what Valerie was taught.
The daughter of a vampire and sister of a devil walking, Valerie finds out she has something neither her brother nor her father possess:
She has Honor.
Setting off on a journey to America, she finds herself stepping up to be the Justice Enforcer the land needs. She will fight for the oppressed. She will destroy evil.
This digital box set contains eight action-packed science fiction adventures:
Justice is Calling
Valerie must flee a brother who leaves her for dead. Because, if there is one thing Valerie understands?
It’s that Justice Doesn’t Turn the Other Cheek.
150 years after a near apocalypse, the world is rebuilding. Survival has become the only rule, and justice is in short supply. Now, Justice has come calling.
Claimed by Honor
The New York City-State wakes up and their world has been shaken to its core. The Enforcers have been scattered, but they aren’t finished. This vampire is but a bump in their road to keeping the city-state in the hands of the CEO’s.
The Were’s are involved, some leave, some stay and new alliances are made and an old one broken.
However, in the end, it always comes back to heart and determination.
Judgment has Fallen
The City Has Changed… but not always for the better. Some love her, some hate her, but the one thing that is causing the city problems is Valerie herself. As a lightning rod, she needs to get out of the public’s eye and allow the emotions to cool without her presence.
Whether she wants to, or not.
Angel of Reckoning
For this vampire, it’s time to die… a second time.
Valerie understands that to take the fight to those who are attacking in New York, she needs to leave the spotlight. Both for the city, and for herself.
Her enemies are relentless in their attacks to get to her. Since they have relocated to the Chicago City-State area, that is where she must go.
Born Into Flames
When Valerie and Robin head north to take on an army of post-apocalyptic pirates, the deadly duo find themselves on a thrill-ride of air-ship battles and full-on assaults against pirate strongholds.
Her friends back in Old Manhattan discover an attempt at mutiny, while Sandra learns that being an expecting mother doesn’t mean she has to stop kicking ass and taking names.
Everyone must step up their game, or be consumed by the flames of this new world.
Defending the Lost
A time of reckoning has come for the council of Toro, a bandit city about to burst with corruption and injustice.
Valerie refuses to allow her world to rot, and she’s brought friends to help her teach the council a lesson.
Saved By Valor
A dream of peace. A hand of justice. A time for closure.
Valerie has found her way full circle, heading back to Europe, where it all began. New enemies await, calling themselves The Gods, and the journey to put an end to the atlantic pirate problem means dealing with the local trouble makers as well as these false gods.
Return of Victory
The future of the world is in their hands, and they will set it right.
Valerie has returned to New York in a time of reckoning. When an enemy declares war on her and her friends, there’s no holding back. The whole gang reunites for a fight-fest of epic proportions that promises to determine the fate of their lands once and for all.
The princess has returned, and she will have her Victory.

Ye screw with this lass, ye get put on yer ass.
Life sucker-punched me…
I have family I didn’t know about, a magical heritage laying its claim, and a mystery I apparently need to solve.
There are three things I love most in life…my wild and crazy Irish family, Redbreast Whiskey at Shenanigans, and living in Toronto.
Having grown up with five older brothers, I can fight my way out of most situations, either with my wicked sense of humor or my fists. Often both. But when a back-alley brawl leaves me marked with a bizarre Celtic crest on my back, I become a beacon for all things whacked and weird.
My dad is obviously freaked when he sees the tat, but he won’t discuss it.
So, I do what any stubborn red-headed lass would—I ignore all advice and fly to the Emerald Isle to get answers.
And yeah…you know that saying about hindsight being 20/20?
Look out, druid world. This mac Cumhaill is like no other.
Will Fiona survive coming into her powers? Will those in Ireland survive Fiona? Can Toronto survive an urban druid and her mythical bear?
Go up and hit “Read for Free” or “Buy Now” and get ready to cheer for the red-headed lass from Toronto!
It was supposed to be just another Sunday night of fantasy role-playing games for David, Tyrone, Scott, and Melanie.
But after years of playing, the game had become so real that all their creations—humans, sorcerers, dragons, ogres, panther-folk, cyclops—now had existences of their own.
And when the four outside players decide to end their game, the characters inside the world of Gamearth—warriors, scholars, and the few remaining wielders of magic—band together to keep their land from vanishing.
Now they must embark on a desperate quest for their own magic—magic that can twist the Rules enough to save them all from the evil that the players created to destroy their entire world.
United Federation Marine Lance Corporal Tamara Veal catches the attention of recruiters who nominate her to serve as a Single Combat Specialist. Gladiators, as they are better known, are genetically modified human champions who meet Klethos d’relle in the combat ring when the Klethos issue a challenge for a human world. Win, and the planet stays in human possession; lose, and not only do they lose their lives, but the world as well. With the Klethos much more advanced and militarily powerful, able to defeat humanity in an all-out war, the challenge ring is the only way to retain at least some of the worlds of man.
While life as a gladiator is full of celebrity status and the gratitude of humanity, it comes with a heavy price. Not only is there the real risk of death in the ring, if a gladiator survives that, the “Brick,” or Boosted Regeneration Cancer, will claim her life within a few years.
Lance Corporal Veal, who has found a home in the Marines, has to decide whether to accept the nomination. She would have to leave her brothers and sisters in the Corps, be assigned to the combined human gladiator course, and undergo extreme genetic modification that will leave her almost unrecognizable from the woman she was before. Becoming a gladiator will enable her to serve humanity to a far greater extent than anything else she could do as a Marine grunt, but at a tremendous personal cost.
Author’s note: For those readers familiar with my other Marine-related books, this one is a little different in that there is far less combat action, particularly from a Marine unit standpoint. This novel, which is the first of three planned books that follow three different women serving as United Federation Marines or as a Navy corpsman, is more about duty, sacrifice, and what it means to serve in defense of others.
…great food, live-music, and good times.
Will Jenna discover there’s a sinister side to New Orleans?
She loves to rock. The stage, the lights, the fans, and her band, The Voodoo Dolls, get her amped up like nothing else in life. Jenna thinks it’s magical, but is she ready to find out how truly right she is?
It was only a gimmick.
Something they did during the shows.
And it might have saved her life.
From the dark corners of The Crescent City, something is on the move. It’s ancient and evil. When the sun goes down, a whole other world stirs. They start to hunt for candidates to turn. The tourists don’t think it’s myth, but the locals believe.
Can they be stopped?
You’ll love this first book in this Urban Fantasy series, because the Vampires and Werewolves have a score to settle and the war is about to begin.

SHOP TILL YOU DROP
Helen Hawthorne had a high-finance job, a beautiful home, and a caring husband—or so she thought until she caught him sleeping with their neighbor. But after their divorce, the judge decided that Helen had to pay alimony—and Helen figured the only way to keep her dignity would be to refuse to pay and run for it. Now hiding out in Fort Lauderdale, Helen is working as a sales clerk at a high-fashion boutique. But keeping out of trouble proves difficult when the boutique’s manager turns up dead. In desperate need of cash, Helen decides to try and find out who killed the woman for an offered reward.
MURDER BETWEEN THE COVERS
Helen’s taken a cash-paying job at Fort Lauderdale’s Page Turner’s bookstore. And while the job is decent enough, the owner of the store is anything but. Page Turner III is a boor with more money than brains: he’s cheating on his wife and has a long list of enemies. When he turns up dead, no one is too shocked—except for Helen, that is. The body is found in the bed of her pal Peggy, and it’s up to Helen to prove her friend innocent before the police throw the book at her…

While Helen is conducting a phone survey with the wealthy Henry “Hank” Asporth, he puts the receiver down without hanging up… She can just make out a man and a woman arguing, a short scream cut off by a choking sound, then an eerie silence.
