Daily Deals: Four Romance Novels by Shannon McKenna and Humans vs Aliens
Today only, Amazon unveil four romance novels by Shannon McKenna–a sultry selection of stories about the intense and rugged McCloud Brothers–are just $0.99 each.
In Behind Closed Doors and Standing in the Shadows, Shannon McKenna introduced the McCloud Brothers: intense, rugged, and super-sexy. Now, Davy McCloud is about to meet a woman he can’t trust-or live without… Disillusioned P.I. Davy McCloud has an ironclad rule: never follow blind impulse when it comes to women. But he breaks it the instant gorgeous Margo Vetter shows up to teach at the gym next door. The sexual hunger-and the instinctual protectiveness-that she awakens is much too strong to resist. Broke and on the run, framed for a murder she didn’t commit, Margot has no one to turn to but Davy McCloud. But the closer he comes, the more Margot discovers that holding back-or hiding-from this enigmatic, powerful man is impossible. In every way… Then passion flares with unexpected intensity. But Margot’s past has finally caught up with her, and life is about to get more than complicated. It’s turning deadly…
Ex-FBI agent Connor McCloud can never forget the day he was set up to die at the hands of trusted friend and fellow agent Ed Riggs. Hard justice and loyalty to his badge have cost Connor what he wants most–Ed’s shy, studious daughter Erin. He can never have her now, but her beauty still haunts and torments his every waking hour and his most fevered erotic dreams. But now that his old enemy Kurt Novak has returned, Connor is prepared to do anything to protect the vulnerable young woman from a killer who has vowed a brutal payback. . .a killer with a predator’s lethal patience.
Erin has been harboring secret fantasies about Connor McCloud since she first laid eyes on him–but that was before his testimony sent her father to jail. Her world is falling apart and it’s all she can do to hold her family together. But now Connor is knocking on her door, telling her she needs his protection, whether she wants it or not. He won’t give up and he won’t stay away. He’s sworn to guard her life with his own and his fierce protectiveness awakens long-buried feelings–and a fiery sexuality deep within her sou. . .
Wild boy Sean McCloud takes center stage in McKenna’s over-the-top fourth entry in her romantic suspense series (Behind Closed Doors, etc.) featuring Sean and his brothers Davy and Connor, who specialize in security, catching villains and keeping their women very happy. Sean is still dealing with the death of his brainy twin, Kevin, one of many victims of the covert Midnight Project directed by the sadistic Dr. Christopher Osterman. When Sean’s lost love, Olivia Liv Endicott, returns to Endicott Falls, Wash., to open a bookstore, Sean is both thrilled and terrified. And when the store is torched by Dr. O’s pet assassin and Liv is almost killed by the relentless goon (whom she dubs T-Rex), Sean vows he won’t lose her again. Sean swings into full-frontal heroics, battling T-Rex and working to reclaim Liv’s trust. Full of the author’s trademark turbocharged sex scenes, this action-packed novel is sure to be a crowd pleaser. (Aug.) Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

Kevin McCloud, believed dead for 18 years, resurfaces in fantastic fashion in McKenna’s latest red-hot McCloud sizzler (Edge of Midnight; etc.). After recovering from an injury suffered while trying to prevent a drowning, Kev, now 40-ish, begins remembering what happened leading up to the traumatic events that left him an amnesiac and is lured back into the dark web cast by the evil scientists intent on completing the now-dead psycho scientist Christopher Osterman’s devious mind-control invention. When Kev meets graphic novelist Edie Parrish at a book signing, they forge a connection that’s deeper than romantic; as it turns out, Edie has psychic powers, a history with Osterman, and believes Kev may have inspired the hero of her graphic novel. McKenna’s steamy style, sci-fi twists, and possible family reunion makes this the best McCloud update yet, but readers who aren’t already well versed in the series will want to start with the earlier volumes.

The fate of planet Earth lies within the hands of leagions of well-trained, multidisciplinary soldiers and one pitchfork-wielding hillbilly. Encroaching aliens must be slaughtered before they reach the villages in this tower-defense style game for your Android device.
Grunts vs. Hillbillies
Aliens creep onto the screen, slowly progressing forward. You must stop them before they reach your village border. Place an equally-matched human in its destructive path and watch as the battle ensues. Each soldier has a skill or weapon, from flamethrowers and pitchforks to attack helicopters. Use your most powerful humans only when you need them; they require the most energy.
Luckily, your booze-fueled hillbilly doesn’t require any energy. He doesn’t put up much of a fight either, but against an alien grunt–he’ll get ‘er done.
Blue energy orbs appear sporadically. As you collect them, your humans will become energized and ready for battle. Oil wells allow for more frequent power-ups but you must protect your wells.
No Land is Sacred
As you progress through five beautifully rendered U.S.-based locations, unlock more powerful humans and more threatening aliens. Tirelessly battle your way through aliens that do everything from cloak themselves to spit fire.
With OpenFeint, unlock 18 achievements and compare your scores with friends as well as the rest of the world. So, go save the world–and let everyone know about it.
