Heat Wave: Riders Up, Book 2 by Adriana KraftJoin Adriana Kraft and more authors for #FreeBookFriday #RLFblog

Celebrate the upcoming Kentucky Derby with a free romantic suspense set in the world of horse racing!
Danger, suspense, stunning race horses, courageous heroines and the complicated men who love them!
Hang onto the land – but at what cost? Feisty widow hires ace racehorse trainer to salvage her family’s heritage. Can they survive escalating threats to life and limb?
During an oppressive Iowa summer of drought and farm foreclosures, widowed Maggie Anderson makes a bold decision: She’ll merge her love of horses and her family’s three hundred and twenty acres into a horse farm and try her hand at nearby Prairie Meadows Race Track, where racing purses have just been augmented by the recently added casino gambling.
Down on his luck after being falsely accused in a racing scandal and banned from training, former Arlington Race Track trainer Ed Harrington has skulked home to Des Moines to drown his sorrows and wait for the dust to clear. He’s unprepared for the piercing robin’s-egg-blue eyes of pint-sized Maggie Anderson, who finds him at a flophouse and offers him a job. Can he pull himself together and meet the challenge?
As the two forge a tumultuous working partnership, they soon discover someone is out to get Maggie’s farm and will stop at almost nothing to force her off the land. Can they find and stop the culprit before someone is killed? Can they survive the far greater danger unleashed by the raw passion simmering just beneath the surface of their relationship?

Cole: A Rock Star Story (Standish Bay #1) by Christine DonovanJoin Christine Donovan and more authors for #FreeBookFriday #RLFblog

Cole Jackson is sent to prison for a murder he did not commit, the murder of his wife Lindsey. She is stabbed to death late one night. A night Cole doesn’t remember, but he does know one thing for certain, he could never have committed the act.

His talent as a songwriter and an avid reader save him from the loneliness of the cold, dark and unforgiving prison walls. As he joins the world of the free again, after fifteen years in prison, he struggles with his once again fame in being part of a rock-n-roll band, the stigma of being a convicted killer and the fact that his self-esteem and self-respect were lost years ago. Prison will do that to you, not to mention drugs, alcohol and an unfaithful wife. He no longer has the drugs, the alcohol, or the unfaithful wife, whose long list of lovers range from a controversial New York Senator, to a member of his band. What he has is a tarnished reputation and the determination to find the true killer and restore his life as best he can.

Shannon Gallagher’s hard work as a writer is finally paying off. She owns a beautifully restored Victorian home on the ocean, is raising a terrific and talented sixteen-year-old son, Cameron, whose musical ability amazes everyone. She even manages to maintain a close relationship with her parents, her sisters and her brother, not to mention, an ex-husband, John McKenzie. She has, however, shied away from relationships since her divorce.

She believes her life is complete, until she meets Cole Jackson. She idolized him at sixteen, cried at twenty-one when he went to prison. Now at thirty-six, she meets him and falls instantly in love. Only being in love with Cole is more painful than she ever imagines it can be. And more dangerous as the closer Cole gets to exposing his wife’s killer, the closer Shannon becomes to being his next victim. Can Cole expose the murderer and keep Shannon safe?

Today’s featured book is The Reluctant Duke by Christine Donovan.
Thomas Seabrook, the penniless Duke of Wentworth, walks into

a wealthy man and owner of Hamilton Whaling Industries of New Bedford, Massachusetts
and guardian of a seventeen-year-old girl. Thomas travels to Boston intent of bring his ward back and marrying
her off to the first eligible gentleman who requests her hand. Except the first
gentleman to ask for her, is his own brother Sebastian. Thomas refuses, because
bloody hell, he wants her for himself.
Emma Hamilton is not happy with her new situation. Her papa brought
her up to be independent and assertive. How dare this stranger, this moody noble,
dictate what she can do and not do? When she finds herself thrown into a London season, being introduced
from one gentleman to another, looking for a husband, she realizes only the duke
will do. How can she break through the duke’s hard exterior and find the loving,
caring gentleman she knows he hides from everyone.
