BLAZE OF GLORY by Sheryl Nantus (ebook)

Product description from Amazon:  "Jo Tanis is a superhero, fighting evil on the city streets, using her ability to feed off electromagnetic energy and fire off charges—and it’s all just a show. The Agency captures her and others like her when their powers begin to manifest, pitting them against each other in staged, gladiatorial fights. An explosive implant on the back of her neck assures she’ll keep right on smiling for the camera and beating up the bad guys. When Earth comes under attack, suddenly the show becomes deadly real. Unable to deal with a real alien, the “supers” are falling in droves. Millions of innocent civilians are going to die…unless Jo can cobble together a team from among the fake heroes and villains the Agency enslaved. Including Hunter, who not only promises to show her how to deactivate the implants, but seems to know more than he should about how the mysterious Agency operates." Click the title above for a link to  more information.

"...if you enjoy an exciting Mankind vs. Aliens action adventure with a budding romance and some quirky quasi-supers on the side you will love Blaze of Glory."  From Long and Short Reviews

GAMBIT by Kim Knox (ebook)
 
Product description from Amazon:  "Captain Chae Beyon is a hustler, a mercenary pilot, a wounded woman who prefers her men to be easily thrown aside. Daned Traern is a first-caste Ladaian bound by tradition and DNA to protect his race. He's willing to align himself with the hot space captain if she'll transport him home in time to ensure the right candidate is crowned—and thus prevent a bloody war.  Captain Chae Beyon is a hustler, a mercenary pilot, a wounded woman who prefers her men to be easily thrown aside. Daned Traern is a first-caste Ladaian bound by tradition and DNA to protect his race. He's willing to align himself with the hot space captain if she'll transport him home in time to ensure the right candidate is crowned—and thus prevent a bloody war. Disguised as Chae's sex toy, Daned is erotically bound to her through living gold, alien tech designed to increase pleasure. When he frees himself, their passion only increases...but succumbing to temptation will bind them together—permanently." Click the title above for a link to more information.

LOVE AND ROCKETS, SFR anthology, DAW Books, signed by donating author Anita Ensal (a.k.a. Gini Koch) Print, author will ship internationally.

Product description from Amazon:  "Space...the final frontier. Or is it? Many say there's no frontier more forbidding than a romantic relationship between a man and a woman. But what if one's a human, and the other's an alien? Here is an original collection of space opera stories where authors take love (unrequited or not), on a spaceship, space station, or planetary colony, and add enough drama, confusion and mayhem to ensure that the path to true love-or short-term infatuation-is seldom free of obstacles."  Click the title above for a link to more information.

That's our fantastic line-up of free books!  Comment now for your chance to win  them.

  91. From your SFR Holiday Blitz Hosts:

    Thank you to everyone for your enthusiastic participation! You're helping to make the 2010 Blitz another huge success!

    Just two more days to go on this contest -- and three more comments to go to hit 100!

    What does that mean?

    Ohhh, we've been keeping a secret. That's when our Books and Bonuses round kicks in here on Spacefreighters Lounge. Not only will a random commenter win the SFR books, but others will have a chance at some SFR-related items...just watch the comments for our prompts.

    We also want you to know you may enter multiple comments for multiple chances to win the SFR books! The only requirement is that each comment must be unique.

    Thank You, Happy Holidays and Good Luck!
