Definition of the "Women's Fiction Genre": The central goal of ebooks in the Women's Fiction genre is to focus on the experience of a woman or group of women.  And, those experiences oftentimes relate to adverse experiences the woman goes through, and ultimately prevails over.  The story can involve romance, but does not need to and does not necessarily involve romance the majority of the time.  The most important part of ebooks in the Women's Fiction genre is that the woman playing the main character experiences personal growth, and oftentimes goes through life-changing events.

 

Some examples of bestselling ebooks in the Women's Fiction Genre are Tracy Brogan (Crazy Little Thing), Lisa Genova (Still Alice), Christina Baker Kline (Orphan Train), and Liane Moriarty (The Husband's Secret).

Magical Twist: Paranormal Women's Fiction (Midlife Witchery Book 3)

by Brenda Trim


Rumor has it that midlife is for drinking wine, traveling, and discovering the joy of life. But there's no rest for the wicked. Or for a Fae-witch hybrid like myself.

Danger follows me everywhere - even to the grocery store - as the evil entity continues to stalk supernaturals in Cottlehill Wilds. But I barely have time to worry about that now that the Fae Queen is dead.

My bad. No, seriously. I let my power loose and it took over.

Leaving Grams behind to return to Eidothea and fight a war wasn't exactly in my plans. As usual, I'm totally clueless. At least I have my orthotic inserts to keep me on my feet and Sebastian and his irresistible kisses to lift my spirits when things go wrong.

And let's face it: things are going to go wrong.

Just because I can cast a spell without burning off my eyebrows now doesn't mean I can survive giant trolls, bogharts, or the insane Fae King. And since my best friends refuse to let me face this battle alone, the stress of saving the realm and the people I love most in both worlds is threatening to turn me prematurely grey.

Sometimes being the Guardian really sucks.

Now, Elise must decide what to do next. How will she grapple with her mother’s death? And could a trip to Mackinac Island change her life, like it did her mother’s?

She thought all the adventure in her life was over. She thought she would never find happiness again.

But she’s beginning to think the adventure has only just begun.

Dive into this women's fiction boxset for a trek of a lifetime: from the glittering sands of Los Angeles, all the way to that gem of an island between the southern and northern peninsulas of Michigan, Mackinac Island, where secrets have been kept for the previous forty years.

Everything But the Truth: Story of Our Scandalous Grandmother

by Steve Peek


This is Part 1 of a 4 part novel about a woman born in the backwoods in1900. In those days, women couldn’t vote, drink in public, or speak their minds outside of their homes. Most women anyway, but one thing for sure, Margaret Rose Nolan, wasn’t most women. Born into north Appalachian's piedmont, she knew what she wanted, and it wasn’t to live in the backwoods of Alabama surrounded by poverty and ignorance. She didn't care what women were supposed to do or what others thought of her; she followed a single-minded purpose -- create opportunities for the things she desired. If getting what she wanted required manipulating men, then that was too bad for them. It wasn’t her fault men liked her, but she used it and used it well. In those days, women called her a Jezebel. She called them ignorant. She moved from moonshine to champagne, from rowboats to cruise ships, from foolish foothill suitors to society's elite, usually at the expense of others, even her own children.

Pat Conroy, my first cousin, and I spent time in our grandmother’s ‘big house’ in Atlanta. Pat and I traveled together to Piedmont, Alabama, to research our family history. I spent many summers visiting with the people who knew Margaret when she was young. Much later in life, our ailing grandmother came to live with my wife and me for more than a year. She regaled us with tales of her life. This book is a fictionalized account of her life. She lived the life as told, but just like her, the story has to have some lies and exaggerations, or it wouldn’t be our grandmother.

Magical New Beginnings: Paranormal Women's Fiction (Midlife Witchery Book 1)

by Brenda Trim


When life goes sideways, embracing the adventure is the fastest way to set things right.

One day I was just a widow facing the prospect of an empty nest, living a life that was anything but enchanted. The next, I had discovered my magical roots, and my rightful place as the Guardian of the portal between the Faery and Earth.

There was shock. And there was fear. After all, no one plans to start over at forty-five. I intended to grow old with my husband. I thought we’d live an ordinary life. So I’ll be damned if I’m going to waste this opportunity to live in a world I always thought was imaginary.

I’m half-witch, half-faery, and facing dangers as real as the ache in my bad knee. Ibuprofen and caffeine keep me going, and I could do this for the rest of my life. Whoever thinks my family home is an easy mark better take notice: the new Guardian in town isn’t going down without a fight.

After all, she’s already learned to let go of her simple existence and believe in the extraordinary power inside of her. What could possibly stop her now?

Aliens.


That's right. I said it.

I know—it sounds stupid to me also. I'm a psychologist (sort of), so you'd think I'd be able to reason my way out of this mess. Except the reality is that I've been abducted to become their breeder, and it doesn't take an advanced degree to recognize this is all sorts of jacked up.

But I digress.

Apparently, these aliens are on the brink of extinction and need me and my fellow captives to repopulate. Yay us. I guess it's time to figure out an escape plan before they knock me up. I'll be back later.

Hopefully.

Hannah's Hanky (Clover Creek Caravan Book 1)

by Kirsten Osbourne


After the loss of her father two years before, Hannah Moseby has endured resentment from her step-father in order to help her mother get through her new marriage. When her step-father tells her he’s arranged a marriage for her with a preacher going west, and she can either marry the preacher or she can find somewhere else to live, she agrees to meet the man. She’s not a natural fit as a preacher’s wife, and she’s not sure the Oregon Trail is something she can survive.


Jedediah Scott is surprised when a stranger he meets at the general store in Independence offers him his daughter—more than offers, in fact. The man agrees to give Jed the amount of money it would cost to take her west, if he would consent to marry her. Jed agrees to meet the girl, because as a minister, he strongly believes in providence. Upon seeing Hannah, he feels drawn to her and wants her as his wife. God must surely have a hand in their meeting.

Will the two of them be able to see past the circumstances in which their marriage began? Or will life on the Oregon Trail break the fragile connection Jed is sure could blossom into love?
