My gift: "Gift of Flesh"
ePub and Kindle and you can download them from those very links! (By the way, I discovered that in many cases a person downloaded the ePub version may find it arriving with a .zip extension. Don't unzip it...just change "zip" in the file name to "epub" and you'll have a dandy epub book.)
In Gift of Flesh, Miakaela, who was raised as a concubine, now finds herself chosen by the Monarch of her land as a Gift of Flesh for a neighboring king. Envoy Naissun is commanded by that king to bring her safely through the rough journey to his harem. Tormented by his conscience and a growing affection for Miakaela, Naissun struggles to find a moral and practical answer to this quandary. But of course, first they must make it through the trip alive... In a medieval fantasy setting, two complex characters are torn: should they choose pragmatism and duty, or rebellion?
In the Library Reviews called Gift of Flesh "a riveting story with a thrilling conclusion." Ecataromance said it was "a superb gift." Fallen Angel Reviews called it "a story that will hold readers from the first word to the last."
And personally, I'm very fond of this story and of its two lovely protagonists. I hope there are plenty of people out there with ebook readers (or just install the nook reader or the Kindle reader on your computer or smartphone for free) who will accept my repentant offering and download Gift of Flesh. Meanwhile, you can also visit the LBR Press READ FREE Project to see the other free titles I offer there (online read, pdf or lit only).
And I promise not to let another coon's age pass before I post again, Blog! Or I may have to offer MORE free nook and Kindle stories! Not that there's anything wrong with that...
