Good morning, guys and dolls!  I hope your summer is full of books and literature.
I have been trying to branch out of my historical romance genre so I checked out Amazon Best Sellers in Kindle eBooks yesterday and was able to download 3 free books from the top 20.  They are all over 300 pages, they have at least 4 stars and as of right now 2/3 are still free.

From the back cover:
Set against the backdrop of the 2002 World Cup and rising anti-American sentiment due to a deadly  accident involving two young Korean girls and a U.S. tank, The Korean Word For Butterfly is told from three alternating points-of-view:
Billie, the young wanna-be poet looking for adventure with her boyfriend who soon finds herself questioning her decision to travel so far from the comforts of American life;
Moon, the ex K-pop band manager who now works at the English school struggling to maintain his sobriety hopes of getting his family back;
And Yun-ji, a secretary at the school whose new feelings of resentment toward Americans may lead her to do something she never would have imagined possible
The Korean Word For Butterfly is a story about the choices we make and why we make them.

This book is no longer free at the time of posting.  The Kindle Edition is $2.99.  I will write a review of this one to let you all know if it’s worth it but with a 5 star rating I doubt I’ll be disappointed.

Build A Man by Talli Roland
From the back cover:
Slave to the rich and rude, cosmetic surgery receptionist Serenity Holland longs for the day she’s a high-flying tabloid reporter.
When she meets Jeremy Ritchie – the hang-dog man determined to be Britain’s Most Eligible Bachelor by making himself over from head to toe and everything in between – Serenity knows she’s got a story no editor could resist.
With London’s biggest tabloid on board and her very own column tracking Jeremy’s progress from dud to dude, Serenity is determined to be a success.

But when Jeremy’s surgery goes drastically wrong and she’s ordered to cover all its car-crash goriness, Serenity must determine how far she really will go for her dream job.

And finally, I had to get at least 1 historical romance book and so far, this one has not disappointed.  From the first chapter, there’s a raunchy scene and the main characters are introduced just enough to get an idea of their personalities and the plot.  I haven’t been able to put this one down yet.

                                                 Not Quite a Wife… 
After a disastrous wedding night, proper Lady Helena Harteford fears for the fate of her new marriage.  Disguised as a doxy, she tracks her husband down to a bawdy house to reason with him… and instead discovers the thrill of forbidden passion.  An innocent ruse turns into risky deception; how far will this once-wallflower go to win her husband’s love?
Unfit to be a Husband…
Orphaned at an early age, Nicholas Morgan escapes his violent beginnings to become a successful merchant – only to discover he is the legitimate heir of the Marquess of Harteford.  His transition to the ton is rocky and made rockier when he marries above him.  Torn between guilt and lust, he tries to protect his sweet, innocent wife from the demos of this past.  But can he safeguard her from his own raging desires.

There’s more to this synopses but I feel like it’s too much of a spoiler.  I was kinda bummed that I read it so I’ll spare anyone else but feel free to check it out on Amazon to read the rest.

Happy reading!
