A lot of the BookBub e-reads I buy are mediocre but there have been a few standouts:

Rene Carlino - Sweet Thing

Violet Duke - Nice Girl

Olivia Cunning - Sinners on Tour (she's since been signed by a known publishing house as I understand it)

Ruth Cardello - Maid for the Billionaire

Who do you like?

I started reading Kristen Ashley because of a recommendation through this site. Wonderful author who now is with a publisher. I liked her because her books were long and always a good price--plus the stories were great!

My favorite who writes for Carina Press is:

Adrienne Giordano (would that be concerned an Indie author)

When my Kindle was gifted to me by my husband, I set myself a limit of $1.99 per book. That has afforded me the opportunity to sample authors I otherwise may not have. I have also been fortunate to have read some very good free books. Here are some of my standouts (I apologize if some are not indie authors but I had never heard of any of them before):

'Death Angel' Martha Powers--excellent; very difficult subject matter (aftermath of the rape/murder of an 8 year old girl, but NO GRAPHIC DETAILS)

'The Other Sister' Leanne Davis--very good; first of 2 books about sisters (this is about the 'bad' one); again, difficult subject matter (kidnap/rape/abuse), details but not horribly so

'Strictly Business' Lisa Eugene--good; H lawyer, h ER doc; some 'purple prose'

'My Everything' J.R. Barrett--good; second chance at love

'Watching' Calle J. Brookes--very good; H's nickname is 'Hell'

'China Blue' Kat Attala--very good; h has traumatic amnesia

'Lost and Found' Tamara Larson--good; story set in Vancouver, B.C.

'The Green-Eyed Doll' Jerrie Alexander--good; creepy doll-obsessed villain

'InSight' Polly Iyer--good; H is deaf, h is blind

'The Embalmer' Tanya Goodwin--good; second book in series; really twisted villain

'Misplaced Loyalty' M.K. Turner--good; first book in a trilogy (British); 511 pages!

'Unintended Consequences' Marti Green--very good; h an appellate attorney; legal thriller

'The Rose Red Reaper' Kristi Loucks--good; first book in series; h is blind, owns a diner

'Embattled Hearts' J.M. Madden--good; first book in series; H wheelchair-bound after war injury; h positive and upbeat
