Amanda in Spain: The Girl in the Painting
by Darlene Foster

Amanda Jane Ross is certainly becoming a world traveler; she's found herself in Spain on vacation with her friend Leah and her parents. Strangely, she's encountered a mysterious young girl who looks eerily like the girl in a famous painting in the museum in Madrid. Even stranger is that this girl keeps showing up wherever Amanda finds herself - Madrid, the remote mountains of rural Spain, the beaches on the Mediterranean Sea and in the big city of Barcelona. Amanda wants to help this girl, but Leah is scared to do too much given the fact that they've just found out that a mean horse-dealer is trying to get to this girl and her beautiful pony.

Come with Amanda as she tries to unravel the mystery behind this sweet young girl and her beloved pony as they trek across Spain.

Amber Frost
by Suzi Davis

Grace Lynn Stevenson is an eighteen year old girl who recently moved with her wealthy, but busy parents to a new city. She’s popular, pretty and rich - what more could a girl want? But deep down, she’s sad, lonely and plagued by nightmares.

When she meets Sebastian Caldwood at her new private school, she’s inexplicably drawn to him and his strange tattoos. Sebastian always gets what he wants - he simply has to wish it; but he’s fighting his own inner demons, and struggling to remember a past that eludes him. When he remembers that he is much older than he looks, he realizes that he’s seen many people live and die, including Grace.

Once Sebastian realizes his true nature and finds what he has been searching for the past hundreds of years, he also realizes that it is now up to him to protect Grace from the dangers that have plagued them throughout eternity.

Armor of Light
by Ellen L. Ekstrom

George Ascalon, earl of Grasmere, returns from the Fourth Crusade to learn that his father, a man who has forsaken his family and noble title to take up Holy Orders, has assigned him one last battle. There is an evil permeating a neighboring lord's lands and George is called upon to vanquish it. With a band of followers that includes his sister, a knight, a fletcher's wife and a mysterious noblewoman, George sets out to honor the pledge and in doing so discovers that he indeed has dragons to fight, and the person most in need of saving is himself.

The Fantabulous Fens
by Gautam Sen

The Fens are a most unusual family. Father and Mother Fen are rather ordinary, but their children? First, there's Mumbo, an elephant-boy; Baby Panda, a Giant Panda; Koala, a koala (of course); and Pinchu and Panchu are very, very small.

When the Fens move into their new house, a curious neighbor, Mrs. Hysteria, drops in, and while the visit starts well enough, on spotting Mumbo, she passes out. When she finally leaves, she makes it her job to make this gentle family public enemies. What will become of the Fens?

We've Seen the Enemy
by Paul Dayton

An alien ship crashes on Earth; its contents make it clear that the dead ant-like aliens inside were on an offensive mission. As humanity is presented with the prospect of their doomed world, construction begins on hundreds of World Federation ships and extrasolar defense weapons to be used in the inevitable war.

We've Seen the Enemy is set 700 years after the Great War and is a desperate race by a suicide team that may finally lead to the end of this interstellar war. Meanwhile, pockets of left-over human tribes on Earth have their own struggles, as they face power-hungry dictators and warped religious leaders. Behind all this are multiple alien forces, each with their own agenda.

As truths turn into lies and friends become enemies, can humanity unite together to fight their common enemy?

What Scotland Taught Me
by Molly Ringle

Fresh out of high school, Eva Sonneborn is headed to Scotland with her best friends: scholarly, sarcastic Laurence; gorgeous, ghost-seeing Amber; and responsible, sweet Shannon. They plan to spend the next six months in Edinburgh, enjoying an adventure-filled work-abroad journey before parting ways for college.

But when Eva meets Gil, a local bartender, she figures a little innocent flirting won't hurt her relationship with Tony, her ever-faithful boyfriend back home. But just when things turn less innocent with Gil, the trip starts throwing curveballs at not only her but her friends too. By the end of the trip, they've all fallen in love, sometimes with the wrong people - and with consequences that may tear their friendship apart forever...

I got six books this week and didn't have to spend a dime! A big thanks to ireadiwrite Publishing for these freebies. I'm not sure if I'll read them all in the near future (although Amber Frost looks mighty intriguing), but I thought it would be a good idea to download them while they were available.
