    Ellie is a young woman, not so unlike any other young woman in today's world. She's in love, perhaps with the wrong man. She's self-supporting, if always being a week behind counts. She's kind and considerate, unless crossed. She's true to herself and others. She is the best of best friends, is attentive to her grandmother, and she loves horses. What is different about Ellie is the fact that she is followed through life by a flock of crows.

    Ellie's Crows depicts the last few weeks of her Grandma Betty's life in a nursing home; a very clean, antiseptic facility, with very little love to go around. Ellie is the sunshine of her days, and as death grows near, her companion throughout her long nights. Ellie's Crows is a celebration of life, and all it encompasses; laughter, tears, fear, triumph...and the realization that perhaps, just perhaps, happiness lies within.

    No idea if it's any good, just saw it listed.

    Default The Bridle Path-free Fri Jun 28

    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007QN7WQY/

    The Bridle Path is a short sweet fairy tale romance for us grown ups, set in the county of Cornwall:
    Two years after being orphaned in a horrific car crash, twelve year old Sebby remains silent and zombie-like. His aunt and guardian Matilda hopes that a new home in the tranquillity of the Cornish countryside will help restore his health.
    Sebby is quickly befriended by the precocious Winny, only child of a local farmer, Greg D'Silva, who is not exactly a knight in shining armour, but looks good on horseback; and even better in jodphurs. Too bad he's already claimed by pretty, confident Mary-Jo.
    As Sebby emerges from a self-imposed prison, Matilda also finds her voice; aware that she too has been drifting through life, content with "good enough" when she could be magnificent. From being afraid to say "Boo" to a goose, Matilda finally finds the strength to go after exactly what she wants on her terms.
    A bonus chapter from Jenny Worstall's acclaimed romantic comedy, "Make A Joyful Noise", follows this edition of "The Bridle Path".
    A man must love a thing very much if he not only practices it without any hope of fame or money, but even practices it without any hope of doing it well.--G. K. Chesterton

    Horse with No Name, what your e-reader will read depends on what kind it is, and what format it is designed to read. Nooks use epub, Kindles use azw and prc. There are other e-readers as well. Books without DRM (software that keeps you from making any modifications to text as well as piracy prevention) can be edited in Calibre, a free software program. There are many free books available, and those that are not locked down by DRM can be changed to the format for your reader.
    Calibre lets you organize your books, and since the titles and such can be rather esoteric, you can add numbers to a series so that you know which book comes when, retitle so that the author name is first - Rita Mae Brown - The Hunt Ball - instead of "The Hunt Ball", with Brown's name listed in a secondary column. The first way sorts in your kindle, and probably in other e-readers, so that it is alphabetically arranged by author name.
    There are many other things to make your e-reader more enjoyable, so visit the forum boards for the brand you bought. Those people have all the same questions. If you bought a Nook, it isn't going to read Kindle-format books. A lot of books are available in multiple formats.
    You've just gotten something that will make your life much easier and save your house from collapsing under the weight of bookcases. I never have to get up at 3 a.m. and hunt for something else to read, as I have hundreds of books right there on my reader that I haven't read yet, thanks to all the free promotional books that come out. And the cat finds that getting thonked on the head by an e-reader when I fall asleep is far less uncomfortable than getting thonked by an 800-page tome.

    This got either 1 star or 5 stars, no middle ground - and looks like it is intended to be the first in a series:

    http://www.amazon.com/Remembering-Au...keywords=horse

    Colleen Caldwell is the owner of Triple C Ranch, a boarding and teaching facility located in the hills and valleys of beautiful Simi Valley, California. Colleen, a gorgeous young widow at thirty-two, has a passion for horses and soft spot for the underdog. Joan Caldwell, the mother of Colleen's dead husband, lives with her and works the accounting end of the business. Our story begins on a hot, hung over, August Sunday morning. Colleen is training a young filly, when the horse suddenly goes crazy and nearly tramples her to death. From nowhere, a mysterious cowboy appears in the dust and saves the day, and then disappears before Colleen gets the chance to thank him. Colleen is rushed to the hospital where she meets August Riley, a woman with a troubled past, and Leah, a nurse with a heart and the knowledge of how to use it. The first installment of the Triple C Ranch Saga follows Colleen's journey through recovery, where she learns more than she ever bargained for.

    http://www.amazon.com/To-Carry-Horn-...I1OBNCAO0MO55S - this is presently .99, ON SALE JULY 9 THROUGH JULY 15. REGULARLY $5.99 **
    To Carry the Horn - A Virginian in Elfland
    Volume 1 of The Hounds of Annwn.

    George Talbot Traherne is just doing his job on a fine autumn morning, keeping the hounds together for the huntsman of the Rowanton Hunt in Virginia along the Blue Ridge Mountain. Doesn't pay to get distracted by a white stag in unfamiliar territory, though. Next thing you know, you might find yourself... somewhere else.

    The land is the same but not the people. Their huntsman has just been murdered, and George is tapped for the job. It's an emergency -- the Wild Hunt is only two weeks away, and if it doesn't happen on schedule, the antlered god Cernunnos will take the realm from its ruler Gwyn ap Nudd and find someone who can mete out justice with the Hounds of Hell in his place.

    The land is the same but not the people. Their huntsman has just been murdered, and George is tapped for the job. It's an emergency -- the Wild Hunt is only two weeks away, and if it doesn't happen on schedule, the antlered god Cernunnos will take the realm from its ruler Gwyn ap Nudd and find someone who can mete out justice with the Hounds of Hell in his place.

    George throws himself into the task, finding strength in the mission and resources he never knew he had. The more he comes to feel at home, settling into his new responsibilities, the more he wants to stay and make a life for himself. He's finally met someone worth spending his life with, even if she's just a bit older, a mere fifteen hundred years or so.

    Can he keep the Wild Hunt on track despite the attempts to thwart it? Will he be accepted by those he wants to defend who view his timely presence and his human blood with suspicion? Above all, what does Cernunnos want of him and how far will he go? Can he survive the attention of a god?

    Readers who are familiar with the sources of Arthurian literature such as the Mabinogion will recognize many of the characters, flourishing still in the world we cannot quite reach.

    http://www.amazon.com/Bluegrass-Stat...keywords=horse

    See where the USA Today Bestselling Author Kathleen Brooks began!
    This is the first book in Kathleen Brooks' Best-Selling Bluegrass Series.

    McKenna Mason, a New York City attorney with a love of all things Prada, is on the run from a group of powerful, dangerous men. McKenna turns to a teenage crush, Will Ashton, for help in starting a new life in beautiful horse country. She finds that Will is now a handsome, successful race horse farm owner. As the old flame is ignited, complications are aplenty in the form of a nasty ex-wife, an ex-boyfriend intent on killing her, and a feisty race horse who refuses to race without a kiss. Can Will and McKenna cross the finish line together, and more importantly, alive?

    WARNING: I got utterly sucked in, and am now the proud owner of not only the 3 book Bluegrass series, and the four Bluegrass Brothers books as well. Fun, light but captures your interest, and you will *TOTALLY* get sucked in!

    ETA: Ok, so I noticed on the list of COTH contributors, one is named Paige Cade. In this series, there is a large family, and the only girl is Paige, and one of her brothers is Cade. Wonder if that was subconscious or on purpose? LOL

    We'll Have The Summer (Kindle Edition)
    by Dutch Henry

    http://www.amazon.com/Well-Have-The-...ave+the+summer

    The doctors say she’ll be gone by fall, but they have one last summer. One hot summer to consummate a lifetime of love, to cry together, laugh together ... remember together. When a troubled teenage girl and an injured horse turn to them for help, Mary and Sam Holt find enough room in their own large and breaking hearts to show the girl life’s glories and restore a champion’s will. We’ll Have The Summer is a magnificent story about life, love, and horses.
    ----
    This is $4.95, not free, but it's very good. I started it, thinking it would be a quickie, but I couldn't put it down. Have your kleenex or your hankie handy. I can lend it to one person if anyone is interested.

    Default The Thoroughbred Conspiracy (The Kentucky Chronicles)

    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DD0C9EE/

    A sinister plot to control the Thoroughbred racing industry has hatched in the Middle East, and is destroying the equine bloodlines of Kentucky.
    Is the villainous plot sounding the death knell for the horseracing industry?
    Can the efforts and passions of Tucker Flannery, manager of Fairhaven Farm, and Doctor Gwendolyn Gardot, a research microbiologist with the Kentucky Equine Research Center, interpret the ravenous disturbance in time to restore the noble breed to its kingly reign? A globe-trotting story of brotherly hatred,
    revenge, murder, passion, and the overwhelming love of horses.

    FILLIES AND FEMALES
    Bev Pettersen

    She'd rather die than be the center of attention...that may happen.

    A dedicated nurse is horrified when she's forced to team up with a Texas race trainer whose main pleasures are fast women and faster horses. Yet sabotage and murder thrust the pair into an uneasy alliance until they are willing to risk it all for love.

    this one has my old horse in it. Her new owner is an author and used her in this story.

    The Amulet: A Faedra Bennett Custodian Novel

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...0F99D7SNRMNYCQ

    To seventeen-year-old Faedra, faeries were nothing more than the figurines she collected and displayed in her curio cabinet. Or so she thought...

    Faedra had no idea that faeries controlled nature, and with a book no less. Nor did she know that her ancestors had protected an ancient fae amulet for thousands of years. An amulet, that if reunited with the book, would give the wearer power to control the weather, too. She didn’t know all this because the one person to teach her died when she was just six years old. Well, now it was time for her to find out…

    A letter from the grave reveals her true identity the day of her eighteenth birthday. But she barely has time to digest the revelation when she is plunged into a fight for her life and that of mankind.
