Meet Hailey - possessed by an otherworldly being who was trapped in her Kindle.

Hailey Parrish is quick-witted, irreverent, and hasn’t had a date in three years. She only wanted an eBook reader because her collection of paperbacks threatened to take over her small living space. Little did she know that the "special offers" that prompted the purchase included much more than a reduced price in exchange for a few ads. The device came pre-loaded with the essence of Sebastian Kess, an erudite womanizer with magical abilities from a parallel dimension. When she inadvertently releases him and he inhabits her body, she finally has a man inside her, just not in the way she imagined. And soon her predicament introduces her to yet another supernatural, the handsome could-be-the-man-of-her-dreams Alex Sunderland. Can Alex and Hailey find a way to return Sebastian to his own body, stay one step ahead of the criminals who want to keep him where he is, and not lose their sense of humor?

Special Offers, the first book of the Coursodon Dimension Series, combines paranormal romance, urban fantasy, a bit of science fiction and a healthy dose of quirky humor.

Contains content exclusive for Amazon.

Natalie Gibson's review:

I was pleasantly surprised by Special Offers.  At first I was rolling my eyes (after all it was a story about a man's personality/ memories/ attitude getting caught in a kindle and transferred into the first human who used it), but I enjoyed it.  Special Offers is a science fiction romance and they are quite rare.  The hero is magically adept which could put this as a paranormal romance, but the reason he's magical is because he's from another dimension.  That puts it squarely in sci-fi.

Hailey is a divorcee who milks chinchilla's for a living.  Her life is odd but boring at the same time.  Then she meets Alex.  He's not the kind of man who normally hits on her, in fact he isn't a man at all, at least not human.  They embark on a grand adventure to ensure Hailey's safety and privacy by getting Sebastian out of her head and back into his OWN body.

The concept was unique and a lot more compelling than the set up promised.  The author gets bonus points for originality.  The characters were fun and the dialogue realistic.  Never once did I think, 'no one would say that'.  There was no sex until the very end but that means I had time to fall for Alex, just as Hailey did.
