It's a gamble as you never know. Sourcebooks does run specials a lot, and freebie deals as well.

It's been that price before - in fact, it may have been that price for a while now because I don't see it on the recent price drop list at ereaderiq.com. But there's no saying when it will go back up.

Also currently free is Susan Higginbotham's "Stolen Crown".

Maura's Dream by Joel Gross is up free today. I've read this and enjoyed it. Irish girl on her own in New York and meets the wrong people. The situation she lands in might be a bit too intense for some, but I thought the author handled it well without succumbing to temptation and exploiting it with OTT sex. Here's the cover on the 1982 paperback edition I had,

Nabbed "I Serve", not sure when I'll get to it, but it was free, so all good.

Thanks again, Misfit. I got both. My paternal grandmother was from the Ukraine, so The Silence of Trees intrigued me.

Anyone brave enough to read this and let us know if it's good?
Sophie, A Most Unlikely Empress by Jacqueline Hines

It's currently free, and has some good reviews.

http://www.amazon.com/Sophie-Most-Unlik ... 823&sr=8-1

ETA: I've ordered it but it hasn't showed up on my Kindle yet, hmm. - Nevermind, I had to completely shut it off and turn it on again and voila!
