Debut Author Read Alert - Free e-books

Looking for a debut to read for The Story Siren's 2011 Debut Author Challenge? Well, while surfing through Goodreads I came across TWO that you can read eight online through the site!

Betrayal by Mayandree Michel
Where there is love and power, there is always... betrayal.

At seventeen, Cordelia is an ordinary teen with an extraordinary and frightening secret. A secret that induces vivid dreams which she not only experiences true love, but crippling fear while barely escaping with her life each night.
After a life altering event, Cordelia has an unexpected encounter with Evan, the mysterious boy from her dreams, who reveals who and what she is – a descendant of the Greek gods. At that moment everything she knows of her world is a lie, and she must leave the present and go into the past to assume the role she was put on this earth for – safeguarding her ancient empire amidst evil forces that toil hastily to destroy it.
In a race against time, Cordelia must decide if she is truly a part of this dangerous world, or risk defying the gods, and ultimately lose the boy who has put a claim on her heart.

This one I "read" (if you'll read my review you'll understand). If you're into a paranormal YA novel with a little bit of everything you might want to check this one out. I gave it a 6/10.

Sophie & Carter by Chelsea Fine
While other high school seniors are dreaming about their futures, Sophie and Carter are just trying to make it through each day. Carter is overwhelmed by issues at home as he struggles to support his mother.
Meanwhile, next door neighbor Sophie is left to care for her three younger siblings in place of their absent and troubled mother. All that holds these two best friends together is each other, and knowing that each night they'll sit together on Sophie's front porch swing and escape from reality, if just for awhile. But as their relationship reaches a turning point and high school graduation nears, will their friendship become something more?

I haven't had a chance to read this one yet but it sounds amazing. I kind of get the vibe that it will be something like what Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma would be like under different circumstances and if the characters weren't related.
