Happy Thanksgiving and 2 Free eBooks!

Happy Thanksgiving Day!

I have 2 free eBooks for you today! I haven't read either book, but I plan to read something from the Thanksgiving book out loud to the family, especially the Thanksgiving jokes, today. It's not a picture book, but there is an illustration at the start of each story. For this reason, I think kids around ages 6 - 8 will enjoy the stories more than the younger ones. And, no one is too old for jokes! The second book is a steampunk adventure that I've been wanting to read. I was so excited to see the author list it for free for the Thanksgiving weekend!

Daughter of Sun, Bride of Ice

Daughter of Sun, Bride of Ice
Ice and Fate Duology Book 1


About the Book:

Title: Daughter of Sun, Bride of Ice | Author: H.L. Burke | Pages: 268 | Genre: Romantic Fantasy | Recommended Ages: Young Adult and Up

Book Description:

To save a kingdom, she must lose her heart.

Born a princess in a land where the sun never sets, Arynne longs for the freedom to use her inborn magic. When an emissary from the dark side of the world requests an alliance sealed by marriage, Arynne jumps at a chance to escape the rules of her homeland, even if it means marrying a prince she's never met and never seeing the sun again.

The starlit kingdom of Frorheim believes that only a marriage of a Solean Sun Princess to their Star Prince will thwart the return of a feared sorcerer. Arynne meets the qualifications, but the journey is perilous. Even more dangerous to Arynne, however, is her growing attraction to the roguish Frorian soldier, Kajik.

In the throes of true love, Arynne rues her betrothal to the unknown prince. Can she follow her heart knowing that if she forsakes her vow, Frorheim is doomed, and herself along with it?


Purchase on Amazon


My Review:

Ice and Fate is an exciting new romantic fantasy duology by H.L. Burke. It's a page-turner with fabulous world building, compelling characters, and plenty of action. Daughter of Sun, Bride of Ice is the first book where a murky prophecy has put our heroes in a difficult situation. Fate and destiny are intertwined, but the most powerful try to control the outcome. Who really wants what’s best for the kingdom and who is working against the greater good? Book 1 ends on a cliffhanger, but Book 2, Prince of Stars, Son of Fate, is already out, so you won't have to wait to read the rest!

Dragon's Debt - Book 2
Dragon's Rival - Book 3

About the Author:
H.L. Burke


Born in a small town in north central Oregon, H. L. Burke spent most of her childhood around trees and farm animals and always accompanied by a book. Growing up with epic heroes from Middle Earth and Narnia keeping her company, she also became an incurable romantic.

An addictive personality, she jumped from one fandom to another, being at times completely obsessed with various books, movies, or television series (Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and Star Trek all took their turns), but she has grown to be what she considers a well-rounded connoisseur of geek culture.

Married to her high school crush who is now a US Marine, she has moved multiple times in her adult life but believes home is wherever her husband, two daughters, and pets are.

2 Short Stories by H.L. Burke

Laced

Laced: A Short Story by [Burke, H. L.]

Book Description:

Intimacy laces: the ultimate wedding gift, threads of magical energy binding you and your soulmate together for the rest of your happily ever after.

At least, that's what the brochure said ...

Stacy and Jake are united not only by matrimony but by the bonds of their intimacy laces, which allow them to feel each other's eternal devotion. However, after six years of wedded "bliss," the spark has died, and the once healthy laces have dimmed to weak spider threads of light. Determined to reignite the flame, Stacy drags Jake to the Emotional Intimacy Clinic to get their laces refurbished. When the clinic insists on a full consultation and evaluation of their relationship, Jake is reluctant, but Stacy knows they're perfect for each other.

What could possibly go wrong?

My Review:

This is a short story about a married couple struggling to connect. Yes, there's magic involved, and some good insights about love and compatability.

Laced is $0.99 on Amazon


Magician's Gift

Magician's Gift: A Spellsmith & Carver Story by [Burke, H. L. , Burke, H. L.]

Book Description:

Jericho Carver has fought evil fairies and defeated dragons. He never expected his greatest challenge to be finding the perfect anniversary gift for his beloved wife.

Ten years of marriage merits something flashy and fantastic. At least that's what Jericho's brother-in-law says. Jericho Carver has never been a flashy sort of guy, but to give his wife the magical anniversary she deserves, he will pull out all the stops.

What could possibly go wrong?

My Review:

This is a wonderful short story! It has dynamic characters, a good intention that goes horribly wrong, and an inspirational message.

Magician's Gift is $0.99 on Amazon!

Dragon's Rival - Book 3
