Editor’s Note: In LOSING FRANCESCA  Fiona Sullivan has always been Brody Mason’s soulmate, she just doesn’t realize it yet.

Book Description:  Fiona Sullivan is returned to her family after being kidnapped twelve years ago. The only problem…her name is Francesca and she refuses to admit she’s Fiona. Brody Mason knows this girl is his long lost friend and he’s not about to lose her again, so he sets out to capture her heart. The mystery of Fiona Sullivan is finally unraveled, but so is Francesca’s whole life.

Adorable Ebook for Kindle That You Will Love

Editor’s Note: DEMANDING RANSOM supports the stance that when life takes something that is yours, you have every right to demand it back.

The story is so well developed and really roped me in right away, and it kept me guessing until the very end. 

Book Description: Life hasn’t been easy for nineteen-year-old Maggie Carson, and things get even more difficult when Ran, the gorgeous paramedic that saved her from a car crash, keeps crossing her path. Ran’s life hasn’t been a cake walk either, but there’s something different about him, and Maggie’s not quite sure she’s ready for the challenge he has to offer. But if there is one thing Ran has taught Maggie, it’s that you can’t sit on the sidelines of your own existence. When life takes something that’s yours, you have every right to demand it back.

Author’s Inspiration:  I was in the middle of a photoshoot (I’m a photographer by day, writer by night) and the guy I was photographing said that he was training to be an EMT. I instantly thought how that job must be so hard, but also, pretty darn cool. Everything with the story line sort of snowballed from there, but it’s definitely centered around Ran “saving” Maggie in several ways: physically, emotionally, and relationally. For most of my books, I’m one of those fly by the seat of my pants writers, so the plot usually comes to me as I write. With Demanding Ransom, it all just poured out of me. 

Get DEMANDING RANSOM for 99c for Kindle on July 1

Megan Squires

I write about my life. Sort of. I typically can’t get away from pulling past experiences into my stories. The snowboard scene in Demanding Ransom where they shut down the lift? Yeah. That happened. Luckily, it was with my best friend and not a guy, but still mortifying nonetheless. As a writer, so many pieces of me are in my characters, in their actions and their thoughts. Which makes sense, because they’re in my thoughts 24/7. Getting it all out on paper is a kind of therapy, one that I’d glad to participate in.

Summer Books for 2013

Announcing: the Bargain Booksy summer reading list!

To celebrate the first official day of summer (in our part of the world, at least), we’ve collected a list of the best summer books to toss in your beach bag this year. We’ve hand-picked each book from a few places: Oprah’s list of the best summer reads for 2013, reader nominations, popular charts on Goodreads, and our own brains (and wish lists). This list of summer books to read is segmented by genre, so no matter what type of book you’re craving, check out our picks below for our recommendations.

Romance / Women’s Fiction

The Sacramento Bee has called Debbie Macomber “the reigning queen of women’s fiction” – and she has a new book coming out on August 13th. ROSE HARBOR IN BLOOM is a heartwarming tale in line with other Macomber favorites. THE FOREVER OF ELLA AND MICHA is the second book in Jessica Sorensen’s Ella and Micha series – it’s a story of young love, long distance, and making it work when the odds are against you. (best of all, it’s only $2.99). Nora Roberts’ book WHISKEY BEACH is on the fast track to becoming a #1 bestseller – it’s a contemporary romantic suspense that makes for a perfect vacation (or weekend) read.

Young Adult / Teen Fiction

Marissa Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles books are high-tech, SciFi retellings of the classic Cinderella story. Don’t expect a damsel in distress, though – Cinder is a smart and kickass protagonist. The second book in the series, SCARLET, is a must-read for teen fiction lovers. THE SILVER STAR is by Jeanette Walls, the best selling author of THE GLASS CASTLE. It’s a novel of two teenagers discovering their father and learning about the meaning of true family along the way. Sarah Dessen’s book THE MOON AND MORE is a romantic, lighthearted novel about high school sweethearts headed for college. If you’re a Sarah Dessen fan, you have to add this book to your list!

Science Fiction

READY PLAYER ONE by Ernest Cline is a staff pick: our marketing manager will tell you it’s one of the best science fction books she’s ever read (up there with Ender’s Game). It’s nostalgic and fun with plenty of high-tech adventure – if you’re into 1980’s pop culture and video games at all, you’re going to LOVE this book. Pinky promise. Hugh Howey’s book DUST is for WOOL fans – and if you haven’t picked up a Hugh Howey book yet, shame on you. It’s modern scifi at its best. John Scalzi’s book REDSHIRTS is a futuristic adventure through space on the flagship Intrepid. If you love Star Trek-esque adventures, you can’t miss this one.


Our content manager would have a hissy fit if we dared put up a ‘summer reading list’ post without including Neil Gaiman’s new release.  THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE is Gaiman’s first novel for adults since ANASI BOYS – and it’s a must-read for fantasy fans. DEAD EVER AFTER is the final (sniff sniff) Sookie Stackhouse book from best selling author Charlaine Harris. All good things must come to an end – and DEAD EVER AFTER is the adventure and romance filled finale to Sookie’s story. THE YIDDISH POLICEMEN’S UNION by Michael Chabon is equal parts fantasy and thriller – it’s an alternative history book in 1948 Israel.

Literary Fiction

Elizabeth Strout is one of our CEO’s favorite authors (and a Pulitzer Prize winner to boot), so her new release THE BURGESS BOYS is naturally on our summer reading list.  It’s hard to follow up an award-winning book like OLIVE KITTERIDGE, but THE BURGESS BOYS lives up to all expectations and makes for a wonderful read. AND THE MOUNTAINS ECHOED is a new book from author Khaled Hosseini, who wrote the #1 best seller THE KITE RUNNER. It’s a novel about finding yourself by caring for another – it’s powerful, complex, and unforgettable. LIFE AFTER LIFE by Kate Atkinson is hailed by Gillian Flynn (author of GONE GIRL, one of our favorites) as one of the greatest novels of the century. It’s a historical novel of a woman who is born again every time she dies – and each life is an iteration of the one she left behind.


LEAN IN by Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook, is a well researched and inspirational book about women in the workplace. David Sedaris’ newest book, LET’S EXPLORE DIABETES WITH OWLS, is a collection of poignant and humorous essays typical of Sedaris’ unforgettable style. WILD is an Oprah Book Club pick – it’s a memoir about how one woman took a solo hike on the Pacific Coast Trail and put her life back together on the way.

Great Young Adult Fantasy as Bargain Ebook

Editor’s Note: A blend of pulse-pounding action, Welsh mythology, Arthurian tales, and teen angst

An engrossing coming-of-age story richly infused with ancient mythology and Arthurian tales

Book Description: Taliesin Weaver looks like a typical teenager–but looks can be deceiving. After all, most ordinary teens don’t have apparitions predicting their deaths, shape shifters disguised as friends trying to kill them, anomalies that pull them into the Otherworld and strand them there. Why does Tal have so much unwanted supernatural attention? Probably the fact that he is a reincarnation of the original Taliesin, King Arthur’s bard, has something to do with it. Tal needs to figure out how his past life connects to his present one…before it is too late!

Author’s Inspiration: I have always loved both mythology and contemporary fantasy. I have been teaching high school for 31 years and loving that experience as well. This book is the inevitable fusion of my passion for reading and my long association with teenagers.

Bill Hiatt

I have wanted to write as long as I can remember. I was churning out short stories in high school, and I actually finished my first novel 30 years ago, but then the writing impulses became dormant for a while because of the demands of my teaching job. Only recently have I found a reasonable way to reconcile the demands of teaching with my desire to create. There was a time when I saw the two as being in irreconcilable conflict. Now I realize that all those years of teaching have made me a better writer, and the writing is making me a better teacher.

 “Breaking News – School Bus Bombing – Were Twins Targeted?

Fears that teenage twins were targeted in terror attack, amid reports of SECOND strike in victims’ hospital!”

Sam could feel her heart thumping and her pulse quickening as she read the piece. Targeted? Really? Her and James? They must be the twins referred to, as there hadn’t been any others on the coach. Surely the bombing hadn’t been an attack on them? It was stupid! Who would want to target them?
