Not new (been around long time), but in case any SF/F fans overlooked, publisher Baen offers The Baen Free Library -- a digital library of the science fiction and fantasy publishing house Baen Books where e-books can be downloaded free in a number of formats.
Often it's the first book in an ongoing or a backlist series.
(They also have for sale eARCs of brand spanking new books well before available at retailers at http://www.baen.com/baenebooks#eARC )
Links to the download the ones I featured (they offer many more):
Draekon Mate by Lee Savino and Lili Zander is a fairly short read. This would be a great choice for sci-fi/paranormal fans. This is a menage book, so it may not be for everyone. Ms Savino and Ms Zander have given us a well-written book. I love the characters in this story, a perfect fit. Viola, Nyx and Arax's story is fast paced and loaded with drama, action, humor and melt your kindle sexy bits. I'm not a fan of sci-fi and not a big fan of paranormal but this book I enjoyed and look forward to reading more from the Savino/Zander team. Draekon Mate is book 1 of the Exiled to the Prison Planet Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
ONE JOB OPENING
TWO SHIFTERS APPLY...
Dragon shifter Chloe Arish is hell-bent on becoming a Boston firefighter. She uses her Irish charm and fake documents to score an interview, knowing she has to work every bit as hard as a man-harder if she wants their respect.
Born into a legendary Boston firefighting family, phoenix shifter Ryan Fiero can't possibly let someone best him on the training course or the job. He'd never hear the end of it. When a feisty new recruit comes along who's determined to do just that, Ryan plots to kick her out-until their sizzling chemistry turns explosive...
My Wild Irish Dragon was a delightful read.
Chloe and Ryan both want the same job at the safe fire station, but only one position is open. This leads to the two competing for the position. But, the chief finds funding to hire both since both are so well qualified. You think they would stop their competition now that both got the job, but their rivalry continues. Soon they learn to respect the other, become friends, and fall for one another. The banter and humor was enjoyable between these two. Their relationship felt honest and deep as it developed throughout the story.
I also enjoyed several side characters and family members. I didn’t care so much for Chloe’s cousin Aiden and his storyline. I was a bit shocked that when he did something completely against Mother Nature’s rules their was no repercussions at all.
The only thing that still gets to me and this bothered me in the first book too. Why can’t the shifters or supernaturals smell that someone is a shifter or a supernatural? They can use other aspects of their abilities when in human form. So, why can’t they use this one? This would clear things up and help.
I had a pleasant time with My Wild Irish Dragon. I liked that two noble paranormals where trying to make a difference in their community. I also enjoyed the humor that was brought into the storyline.
