Kindle Nation Fave & Best Selling Author Kathryn Shay has a Special Treat For Readers

Our eBook of the Day is a 3 in 1 Box Set


Here’s the set-up for Kathryn Shay’s Bayview Heights Trilogy, just $3.99 on Kindle:

“Few authors can turn such a biting social commentary into an uplifting novel. Ms. Shay does this with the best books of the year.” Affaire de Coeur

Welcome to three of Kathryn Shay’s high school dramas. A teacher in a public school for years, she knows kids and the men and women who teach them!

Bayview Heights has one of the best educational systems in the state due to the dedication of teachers, administrators and the community. But they have their problems, too. Gangs are encroaching from the city, the town newspaper is criticizing them, and an angry board member objects to some innovative classes. These issues frame three intense romances where teachers must overcome personal issues as well as professional ones.

In Cop of the Year, Captain Mitch Lansing is assigned to Cassie Smith’s high school classroom and sparks fly. He’s by-the-book, and she’s unorthodox and innovative in her teaching methods. But when Mitch develops an unstoppable bond with her students, Cassie finds her attraction to him irresistible. “An emotionally powerful tale that leaves you breathless.” RT Book Reviews

In Because It’s Christmas, high school principal Seth Taylor is a hero to most people in town. But Seth has never forgotten the mistakes he made years ago with his students. And neither has Lacey Cartwright, because one involved her brother. But attraction then love flares between them and Lacey fears she’ll she lose what’s left of her family. “Rich characterizations and emotional intensity.” RT Book Reviews

In Count on Me, Zoe Caufield and Kurt Lansing were once deeply in love—until he betrayed her. Now, Kurt’s back in Bayview Heights, running a clinic where her students volunteer, and he wants another chance with Zoe. But she’ll never trust him again, and there’s nothing he can do to win her back. Or is there? “A fascinating and emotionally gripping story.” RT Book Reviews

Kathryn Shay is a lifelong writer. At fifteen, she penned her first ‘romance,’ a short story about a female newspaper reporter in New York City and her fight to make a name for herself in a world of male journalists – and with one hardheaded editor in particular. Looking back, Kathryn says she should have known then that writing was in her future. But as so often happens, fate sent her detouring down another path.

Fully intending to pursue her dream of big city lights and success in the literary world, Kathryn took every creative writing class available at the small private women’s college she attended in upstate New York. Instead, other dreams took precedence. She met and subsequently married a wonderful guy who’d attended a neighboring school, then completed her practice teaching, a requirement for the education degree she never intended to use. But says Kathryn, “I fell in love with teaching the first day I was up in front of a class, and knew I was meant to do that.”

Kathryn went on to build a successful career in the New York state school system, thoroughly enjoying her work with adolescents. But by the early 1990s, she’d again made room in her life for writing. It was then that she submitted her first manuscript to publishers and agents. Despite enduring two years of rejections, she persevered. And on a snowy December afternoon in 1994, Kathryn Shay sold her first book to Harlequin Superromance.

Since that first sale, Kathryn has written twenty-two books for Harlequin, ten mainstream contemporary romances for the Berkley Publishing Group, and two online novellas, which Berkley then published in traditional print format.

Kathryn has become known for her powerful characterizations – readers say they feel they know the people in her books – and her heart-wrenching, emotional writing (her favorite comments are that fans cried while reading her books or stayed up late to finish them). In testament to her skill, the author has had a one of her books serialized in the December 2003 COSMOPOLITAN magazine and has been quoted in PEOPLE and THE WALL STREET JOURNAL. She has won five RT BookClub Magazine Reviewers Choice Awards, three Holt Medallions, two Desert Quill Awards, the Golden Leaf Award, and several online accolades.

Even in light of her writing success, that initial love of teaching never wavered for Kathryn. She finished out her teaching career in 2004, retiring from the same school where her career began. These days, she lives in upstate New York with her husband and two children. “My life is very full,” she reports, “but very happy. I consider myself fortunate to have been able to pursue and achieve my dreams.”

Jim Bernheimer’s Sci-Fi Mystery Prime Suspects: A Clone Detective Mystery is Our eBook of the Day at just $3.99, with 4.8 Stars on 12 Reviews, and Here’s a Free Sample

Here’s the set-up for Jim Bernheimer’s Prime Suspects, just $3.99 on Kindle:

Homicide detective David Bagini awakens on a strange world only to discover he is, in fact, the forty-second clone of the Bagini line. Having no memories of why his Prime entered into a clone contract, he wants answers.

The first problem is his Prime has been murdered and Bagini Forty-Two is now in charge of the investigation.

The second problem is all the clues point at one of his fellow clones and they already know all his tricks.

How can he solve his own murder when all the suspects have his name and face?

From the reviewers:

“If you like science fiction or a good mystery, this is a must read (and book to own for your kindle collection). ”  Steven Hansen  |  6 reviewers made a similar statement

“The premise of this story is incredibly clever. ”  David Edmiston  |  5 reviewers made a similar statement

“Of course, battling clones of himself provides ample opportunity for circular reasoning and much of the introspection Bernheimer’s heroes are famous for. ”  Connie J. Jasperson

The premise of this story is incredibly clever. It’s a murder mystery whodunnit where the victim is a homicide cop and the suspect shares his DNA. In this world where cloning is common, all of the 41 clones of detective David Bagini are suspects. To resolve the conflict of interest, a 42nd clone is created to investigate the case.   Well done…  –  David Edmiston

This is an easy read due to the subtle humor, excellent story telling and, while this is sci-fi, it doesn’t rely on future technology to move the story along. Bernheimer has created a very believable and well thought out world with a unique social structure.  –  By C.F. Hill, Amazon Hall of Fame and Top 10 Reviewer

Sterling Nixon’s Historical Fiction Novel The Sea Kings of Rome: Champions of the Naumachia is Our eBook of the Day, with 5.0 Stars on 4 Reviews, and Here’s a Free Sample

Here’s the set-up for Sterling Nixon’s The Sea Kings of Rome, just $4.99 on Kindle:

What started out as a traditional fight to the death ended up being the most dramatic gladiatorial bout ever recorded blow for blow. No other fight in Roman history has been more sensational, more remarkable than the fight between Priscus and Verus.

The bout’s curious place in history stems from it’s unique beginning and remarkable end. In 79 AD, two men heralded as demi-gods, stepped onto Roman Triremes as they prepared themselves for the Naumachia. They were both champions, having proved themselves through epic gladiatorial combat; but now, as they looked over the dozens of ships crowded in the man-made harbor, they would have a chance to join the ranks of legend.

None of that fame mattered to Verus-a man who had been forced into this barbarity. As he stared long and hard at thousands of opponents across the lake, all begging for the combat to begin, only one of the many faces mattered to him-that was the man that caused the nightmares, the man that undid everything. That was the man they called Priscus the Gaul.

From the reviewers:

Gripping and psychologically poignant book!   This is an epic book! I loved it from the first to the last page. Pretty amazing how Sterling can take two character through so many twists and turns. I was amazed at the depth of feeling and character in the book; I did not expect that from a gladiator book.  –  Julia Hamblin

I’ve always enjoyed historical fiction and this book grabbed my attention from the beginning, reading it in a little less than a day. As much as I loved the descriptions of the epic fights, the personal stories of Verus and Priscus were the most powerful elements of the story. Great detail and great writing. I took Latin for three years and have studied Roman culture and history and I was very impressed by the depth of the author’s research and knowledge. I highly recommend this novel.  –  Perseus

I have a list of certain books in my personal library that I tend to return to, to read over and over again, and I know that this one has made it to that list.  –  “justme”

Stacey Rourke’s Sci-Fi Fantasy Embrace is Our eBook of the Day at just $3.99, with 4.9 Stars on 91 Reviews, and Here’s a Free Sample

Here’s the set-up for Stacey Rourke’s Embrace, just $3.99 on Kindle:

Whether she likes it or not, eighteen year old Celeste Garrett has come to terms with being the Chosen One. She knew having a “normal life” would be tricky, between intense training sessions and epic demonic battles, but she didn’t know at what cost it would come. That is, until a dear friend is harmed by the malicious forces hunting her. 

Now, she’d like nothing more than to retreat into a hermit lifestyle to prevent anyone else from getting hurt. But startling revelations, amazing new abilities, and mortifying moments in front of insanely hot guys won’t allow time for that. Soon, Celeste finds herself surrounded by darkness and wondering who she can trust—if anyone.

From the reviewers:

“I’m very glad I decided to read The Conduit first lol because it just makes reading this book easier for me. ”  A.L. Flagg  |  49 reviewers made a similar statement

“The plot was well written and was full of action, adventure, romance, and a lot of humor. ” Amanda  |  49 reviewers made a similar statement

“I can’t wait to read the next book in the series …. ”  Leslie D.  |  37 reviewers made a similar statement

AWESOME!!!! Tried to read it slow with hopes of making last, but I was so caught up in it that I read it in a day and half. Can’t wait for the next one!!!  –  “A Kids Review”

Love the wit, the characters and the story.  –  Charlene

All I have to say is if you haven’t read anything by the author, you are SERIOUSLY missing out! I loved her writing style in this book so much that I went back and started reading the first book. Embrace is technically a stand alone even though it is part of the series, but I would recommend reading The Conduit first. –  B. Carrigan

If you are looking adventure, a little romance, and twist and turns, this is the series for you. A must read that will leave your screaming for more.  –  “The Mystic World of Books Review,” Jennifer

THE AWAKENING — a “gem of a thriller with a huge concept that rivals Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code….”

“…an intelligent work that entertains while making the reader think…”

Tara Spencer’s mysterious pregnancy sidetracks her plans for medical school. Her fiancé assumes she slept with someone else and severs all ties. Her parents question her mental health when she insists she’s never had sex. Only a stranger, Cyril Woods, accepts her claim that she’s still a virgin.

The religious order that Cyril belongs to believes Tara’s child may be a new messiah, fulfilling signs in the Book of Revelation. But when Tara discovers the baby will be a girl, the order sees her as the mother of the anti-Christ who must be destroyed before she triggers the first stage of the Apocalypse.

Uncertain whom to trust and afraid of endangering those she loves, Tara fights for her life as she seeks a safe place to give birth and the answer to whether she and her child are meant to save the world or destroy it.
