"Fashioning a Romance"
By Libby Mercer

American girl, Caitlyn Taylor, has a pretty cushy setup as the personal dressmaker for London socialite, Sophie Harrington. And then she meets Sophie’s brother, John. Devastatingly handsome and deliciously weird, John Harrington is the man of Caitlyn's dreams…and her nightmares. Caitlyn has no use for a guy like him – a womanizer with a capital W. She dodges his advances like a pro until John, forced to get creative, orchestrates a “surprise” trip to Paris for the pair of them. How will she ever be able to resist the irresistible in the most romantic city in the world?

"Fashioning a Romance” is a light-hearted love story. One part romance and one part chick lit with a dash of humor and a pinch of glitz, it’s whimsical escapism at its best.

"Fashioning a Romance" is $3.99 for Kindle.

"The Mine"
By John A. Heldt

Cocky, adventurous, and brutally handsome, Joel Smith sees the world as his playground. But when the college senior enters an abandoned Montana mine in May 2000, he discovers the price of reckless curiosity. He emerges in May 1941 with a cell phone he can't use, money he can't spend, and little but his wits to guide his way. Stuck in the age of swing dancing and a peacetime draft, Joel returns to his hometown and begins a new life.

Along the way he meets his progressive, 21-year-old grandmother and falls hard for her best friend, Grace Vandenberg: a shy, beautiful honors student who wears the ring of a Navy officer. With their help, Joel finds his place in prewar Seattle. But when an opportunity comes to return to the present, he must decide whether to leave Grace in the past and break her heart or choose a course that will alter their lives forever.

"The Mine" is 99 cents for Kindle.
