Happy Friday folks. Welcome to another Fiction Friday. Today I have a freebie for you: a romance from Rachael Perez.
Do you wanna know a secret?
I’m a terrible, rotten human being. The thing is, my great grandfather and his best friend had a dream. Then their sons had the same dream. And then their sons….you get the drift.
What was this dream? To strengthen and solidify the bonds of their long lasting friendship with the sanctity of marriage. This wasn’t possible for several generations because neither the Crane family nor the Black family had a female child. Until me. And Alicia. My planned marriage to James Crane was the talk of the Town. Every single female was envious of me. Many would have killed to be in my position. My husband to be was rich, easy on the eyes and a complete gentleman. The best part of this arranged marriage was, James and I were already madly in love.
Whatever could go wrong with such a fairytale love story? Everything.
It turned out that I was also the dumbest person in the world. I was provoked. That’s my only excuse for doing what I did. Now I’m caught in a web of my own making. Instead of uniting our two families just like my great-grandfather wanted, I was on track to turn our families into bitter, feuding enemies.
The most popular TV game show ever, Puzzle Train, has Tom hooked. Obsessed. Every week, he watches as the adults fail to complete the unseen Conductor’s puzzles. Every week at school he debates the Conductor’s identity with best friend, Isabelle. And every week, his stepfather tells him to get out of the living room and play sports.
An opportunity presents itself as a children’s special is announced. Tom is desperate to get on-line and attempt the qualification puzzles, his stepfather is equally desperate to stop him. The mystery to Tom is why does his stepfather hate the Puzzle Train so much?
Tom knows he can defeat the Conductor’s puzzles – if he can overcome his initial shyness – he has studied every episode and he has his grans words of wisdom in his head.
He has to win. Not just for the fame of becoming the first person in 500…

Hey folks, it’s Friday and so time for another dose of Friday Fiction from some awesome indie authors. First up who here has Kindle Unlimited and loves fantasy? If that describes you then check out MAGIC MAY for oodles of fantasy titles all FREE to KU subscribers.
Next up check out some kickass sci-fi from Dayne Edmonson – GHOST RANGER is book 1 of the Seven Stars Universe series and is available everywhere! So what’s it about? I’ll let its lead character, Rachel tell you.
My name is Rachel. I died and rose again.
I was an ordinary high school girl when a viral plague spread across my planet. Those that died rose again as mindless zombies. Fortunately, science came to the rescue and gave me back my mind. As a conscious zombie, I gained exceptional powers – speed, strength and more. That, plus a secret heritage, changed my life forever.
The outside world didn’t accept my kind, however, and soon I decided to join the military. I trained to become an Army Ranger.
Now, as an elite undead killing machine, I must make a choice. Allegiance to my kind or to the Federation. Choose wrong and I could die…for good.
Another installment in the Seven Stars Universe by Dayne Edmondson, this is a young adult space opera adventure novel set a few years before his space opera novel “Emergence” and featuring a major character from the third book, “Ruin.”
The age of magic has died off in Narishma leaving many forced to toil at the land or face death from starvation. Even the Shadows, a once proud guild of assassins, are feeling the toll as people in power hide within their homes and choose money over politics. Missions are scarce, so why not take on a mission to help a bard create the best song in Narishma? The problem? Keeping the bard safe while traversing the most difficult test a Shadow must face.

Her bloodline says they should be mortal enemies. Her heart swears otherwise. Will her torn loyalties leave her vulnerable to a rising evil?
Minx’s hunting and fighting skills are legendary. But when adversaries trespass on the royal Fae lands, she’s nervous about her mission to restore the defense wards by slaying a dragon and returning with its powerful hide. And the ferocious warrior grows desperate when neighboring clans demand that she defeat not one, but two of the fearsome beasts in fights to the death.
Angered by the coercive demand, Minx tracks down her first red-scaled monster—only to be stunned when it shifts into a stunning young man. And when her handsome foe claims they share a common adversary, her attraction tempts her toward an unheard-of alliance against a dark new threat.
Will Minx’s quest to save her species drag them into a bloody war?
How to Kill a Dragon is the breathtaking first book in the Heir of Dragons epic fantasy series. If you like fierce heroines, forbidden romance, and magic gone awry, then you’ll love J. A. Culican’s fiery tale.
