Not interested in the weekly Free Fridays title offered by Barnes and Noble?
I'm usually not, either!

I thought about it and realized just how many free e-books I've found and downloaded onto my nook. I decided to start sharing some freebies with you!

No matter your e-reader, no matter if you get the official weekly book or not,  I hope you enjoy my alternatives!

Here's today's freebie:

Title: MADLY
Author: M. Leighton

Available FOR FREE from:


M. Leighton is a very successful indie author. She's self-published many bestselling novels and I often hear great things about her. If I read more romance novels, I would be all over this woman's books!

It seems that she's determined to have me for a fan, since she's also written some mermaid novels! MADLY is the first in the Madly series, and it's available for free!

I figured a swishy underwater adventure would be the perfect thing to feature as today's freebie.

I haven't read this one yet, so I'm not sure what the appropriate age group is. Leave a comment if you know! My guess would be adult like her other books, but since the main character is 17, maybe not...!


Madly is your average nearly-eighteen year old girl—for a princess, that is.

Madly James is thoroughly enjoying her internship in the small town of Slumber when the unthinkable happens—there’s a prison break in Atlas, the magically-protected home of Madly’s race. A traitor has set free eight Lore, the spirits of what humans know as fairy tales, and they are making their way to Slumber to awaken their descendants.

In order to save her home, the lives of her family, and all of humanity, Madly must learn to wield her exceptional powers and recapture the Lore before it’s too late and all is lost. But Madly’s only help are her two best friends and the Sentinel, Jackson Hamilton, that threatens both her heart and her destiny. Madly has loved Jackson as long as she can remember, but he is the one thing even a princess can’t have. Can she resist love to become the queen she was fated to be? Or can she find a way to have both?

This novelette introduces you to Madly and prepares you for the quest of a lifetime.
