It’s a dangerous game you set to play, Miss Corbett. One that can have far worse than deadly consequences!

In the midst of the struggle for America’s bid for independence, Hannah Corbett makes a fateful decision, descending into a world of deceit. Spurred by revenge, she heads to New York, setting in motion a dangerous game for which there is no return. Searching desperately for the man who betrayed her family, she faces the cold and brutal reality of the life of a spy.  Caught in a web of lies, living with betrayal, she is trapped.  She has nowhere to turn except to a man it would be treasonous to love, setting duty and desire at war. Her heart is ripped apart when she must choose between the man who risks his career and life to protect her and the only thing that has remained constant in her life…her belief in her cause.

What they’re saying about it:
 *
“I found this book to be very entertaining. It is suspenseful and the characters are likable. I did find it surprising because I wasn’t expecting it from an author I’ve never heard of.”–Charlie G.
 *
“After reading the book, I was quite intrigued with the spies and their networks in the American Revolution. I highly recommend this book if you love history mixed with danger and suspense and love…”–Ruby W.

 *
“Patriot Secrets is a stirring tale of war and valor as shown through the eyes of a young woman thrust into a situation she didn’t want; of the man who loves her in spite of their being on opposite sides of the firing line, and of the consequences of the actions these star-crossed lovers must accept in order to survive. These are characters the reader will want to know more about. Would it be too much to hope there’s a sequel in the wings?”–Toni V. Sweeney

Bargain eBooks #532:

‘That Bear Ate My Pants!’ by Tony James Slater
Genre: Travel comedy
Price: $2.99
Where to Get It:

Amazon (Kindle)
*

There comes a time in every man’s life when he says to himself, “Holy Sh*t! I’m about to be eaten by a bear!”Tony James Slater went to Ecuador, determined to become a man.  It never occurred to him that ‘or die trying’ might be an option…

The trouble with volunteering in a South American animal refuge is that everything wants a piece of you. And the trouble with being Tony, is that most of them got one.

Just how do you ‘look after’ something that’s trying it’s damnedest to kill you and eat you?
And how do you find love when you a) don’t speak the language, and b) are constantly covered in excrement and entrails?

If only he’d had some relevant experience. Other than owning a pet rabbit when he was nine. And if only he’d bought some travel insurance…

That Bear Ate My Pants is the hilarious tale of one man’s quest to better himself. Whether losing a machete fight with a tree, picking dead tarantulas out of a tank of live ones or sewing the head back on to a partially decapitated crocodile, Tony’s misadventures are ridiculous, unbelievable and always entertaining.

Long before Sky One got involved, there were already plenty of Idiots Abroad. This is the story of one of them…

What they’re saying about it:

“When I was reading the beginning chapters of this book, I had to stop uncountable times to laugh. As I got deeper into this true story, though, I found myself increasingly moved by the author’s love for the wild animals in his care. To say he risked life and limb to help him is merely a statement of fact, and his heartbreak when one died or suffered was expressed in a touching, yet non-sentimental way.To read this book is to take the most comfortable kind of vacation. You’ll feel as if you’re there, except that you won’t be slogging through swamps, roasting in the mid-day sun, or freezing when that sun goes down. Ecuador sounds like a beautiful country that I have no plans to visit.

I so hope the author is working on another book. I will be looking for it. Lucky you, all the fun awaits you. “–Amazon Reviewer
