Freebie Friday: Fantasy - Paranormal & Urban


Freebie Friday is a meme adopted by many book blogs around the interwebs to promote e-books that are currently available for $0.00 on Amazon either permanently or for a limited time. I break down the types of "freebies" into whatever category Amazon has placed them in. This week I am taking a look at books that are free and fall under the category of "Fantasy: Paranormal & Urban". Some of these may not fit perfectly into this category but as I said... I am following the categories Amazon has placed them in. You can click on the book cover picture to take you to a synopsis of the book on Goodreads or click the title link to take you directly to Amazon where you can download the e-book for free.

Title: Jenny Pox

Author: J.L. Bryan

Series: The Paranormals #1

Eighteen-year-old Jenny Morton has a horrific secret: her touch spreads a deadly supernatural plague, the "Jenny pox". She lives by a single rule: Never touch anyone. A lifetime of avoiding any physical contact with others has made her isolated and painfully lonely in her small rural town.

Then she meets one boy she can touch. Jenny feels herself falling for Seth... but if she's going to be with him, Jenny must learn to use the deadly pox inside her to confront his ruthless and manipulative girlfriend Ashleigh, who secretly wields the most dangerous power of all.

Title: Eternal Eden

Author: Nicole Williams

Series: The Eden Trilogy #1

College sophomore Bryn Dawson is a self-proclaimed poster child of normal. However, the day William Hayward enters her life, normalcy is the last thing Bryn will be able to count on if she wants to be with him. Too mysterious and appealing to be good for a girl, Bryn feels drawn to him in a way that seems out of her control--as if fate is orchestrating it.

Despite every red flag and warning siren going off in her head telling her not to, Bryn falls hard for William, knowing he's categorically different from anyone she's ever met. She never imagined how right she was. When William takes her deeper into the rabbit hole of his world, Bryn must decide just how much she is willing to sacrifice to be with him, knowing no matter what, fate always finds a way to have the last laugh.

Spinning a new twist on star-crossed lovers, Eternal Eden will put Bryn through a gauntlet of turmoil, challenging her to find the power within herself to become the heroine in her own story.

She's a Regulator--a law-enforcement agent who monitors the creatures of the Netherworld to keep them from wrecking havoc in the mortal world. When a warlock is murdered and Dulcie was the last person to see him alive, she must uncover the truth before she's either deported back to the Netherworld, or she becomes the next victim.

Enter Knight Vander, a sinfully attractive investigator sent from the Netherworld to work the case with Dulcie. Between battling her attraction to her self-appointed partner, keeping a sadomasochistic demon in check, and fending off the advances of a sexy and powerful vampire, Dulcie's got her hands full. As the body count increases, Dulcie finds herself battling dark magic, reconnoitering in S&M clubs and suffering the greatest of all betrayals.
