Amazon Self-Published Bestsellers for the Week of Monday, December 10, 2012

1. The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski: “With a purse, a cell phone and a small bag with a few necessities, Camryn, with absolutely no direction or purpose boards a Greyhound bus alone and sets out to find herself. What she finds is a guy named Andrew Parrish, someone not so very different from her and who harbors his own dark secrets.”

2. Stop the Wedding! by Stephanie Bond: “a man and a woman determined to stop their parents from marrying fall in love themselves.”

3. The Unwanted Wife by Natasha Anders: “All Alessandro de Lucci wants from his wife is a son but after a year and a half of unhappiness and disillusionment, all Theresa de Lucci wants from her ice cold husband is a divorce.”

4. Accidentally on Purpose by L.D. Davis: “Emmy is finding Kyle hard to shake. He is blatant in his feelings and desires for Emmy, putting her in an awkward situation. She tries hard to resist Kyle, but deep down inside Emmy’s motives are shady.”

5. Fade into You by Kate Dawes: “Olivia Rowland leaves her Midwestern life behind after graduating from college and heads off to Los Angeles to work for a Hollywood talent agent. Life in L.A. is a culture shock, but nothing compared to the jolt she gets when Max enters her life.”

6. Rock the Heart by Michelle A. Valentine: “good girl Lane has regretted breaking up with Noel Falcon. She thought she was sensible when she told him his dreams of being a rock star would get him nowhere, but now that he’s a rock god and her career is stagnant, she realizes just how wrong she was.”

7. Some Kind of Wonderful by Barbara Freethy: “‘ABANDONED BABY FOUND’ It’s the kind of story investigative reporter Matt Winters writes about — not the kind he wants to be living. When he discovers a newborn baby girl on his doorstep, he panics …”

8. All In by Raine Miller: “Ethan Blackstone has problems. He’s broken the trust of the woman he loves and she’s left him because of it. Ethan isn’t giving up though–he’s determined to get his beautiful American girl back. Their passion together was explosive, but their secrets are even darker and more frightening.”

9. Fade Into Me by Kate Dawes: “It’s a bit over the top to call someone perfect, and I’m not naïve enough to think that any such person exists. I was with a beautiful man who had an amazing heart, boundless ambition, and he was crazy about me … And I discovered nothing comes without risk.”

10. Fade into Always by Kate Dawes: “When the shy and reserved Midwesterner Olivia Rowland met Max Dalton, one of the brightest and most successful writer/producer/director Hollywood had seen in years, the two set off on a wild ride of extremes—passion, lust, fear, doubt.”
