50% ebook buck rebate at All Romance

Starting today at All Romance eBooks and running through 9 May, you get 50% rebates on every ebook purchase as a Mother’s Day special. So if you spend $6.00 on an ebook, you get $3 in “ebook bucks” – the ArE equivalent of the eeeevil seduuuuuctive Micropay from Fictionwise.

I’m looking for digital book recommendations, too – so if you have a book to recommend, and yes, feel free to pimp your own, I’m curious to know what you’re reading, what you’re liking, and what you’re pimpin’. Operators are standing by! Which is to say, I’m sitting at my desk with a credit card in arm’s reach.

Note: If you’re looking to try something different, ArE, J.M Snyder and a slew of other authors and publishers are donating from 25-100% of their proceeds this month to National Center for Lesbian Rights as they represent Clay Greene in Greene V. County of Sonoma et al.

So, what do you recommend?

    The Bride and the Buccaneer is getting good reviews, was a DABWAHA entry, and is available from those fine folks at All Romance.

    No, I’m not at all ashamed that I pimp my own books.[g]

    I’m not afraid to pimp you right back!

    The Bride and the Buccaneer is available for $7.00 US. And Darlene writes fiiiine pirates. With Swishbuckling! (Though not in this book).

  3. 3

    Thank’ee, ma’am!  And there is at least one swishbuckling pirate in this book who covets Sophia’s pretty parasol and frock.  The rest of them are more “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” types.

    I suppose saying my books and short stories are for sale there wouldn’t be proper, would it?  :-) 

    What’s in a Name? was a finalist in the Daphne, Gayle Wilson, Aspen Gold, and took 2nd Place in the Laurel Wreath. (Finding Sarah took 3rd)

    I’ll pimp you, too, Darlene. I loved The Bride and the Buccaneer.

    I’m also gonna pimp two of mine. I have 2 werewolf tales that are getting some great press. Michael’s Keeper is about a werewolf who comes to the Crossroads Gatekeeper to save his pack and finds his mate instead. Maxie Briscoe: Werewolf tells the story of werewolf whose incognito life comes crashing down when a killer sets his sites on her.

    You can bet your sweet bippy I’m gonna pimp my own books. Bippy. That dates me doesn’t it? Anyway, the two books I wanna pimp are THE FELIG CHRONICLES, an interracial/sci-fi sizzler and KINDRED, an interracial/historical set during the American Revolution in NY state. It’s more of a slow burn. The name to search for as author of these two? PJ DEAN, my pen name. Happy Buying!

    Books I have enjoyed recently:

    Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake by Sarah Maclean (very charming regency)
    Born of Night by Sherrilyn Kenyon (so much better than her recent books, this sci fi romance is an oldie that was republished recently. I really enjoyed it!)
    Hotter After Midnight by Cynthia Eden (I enjoyed this shapeshifter romance, it has an intelligent heroine too!)
    N.J. Walters – Jamesville series (Contemporary romance series set in small town Maine. Good writing, nice stories.)

    Sharon says:

    you got to try “Shades of Gray” by Joleene Naylor. And the cool thing is it’s only $1.50! I also liked “Along Came A Demon” by Linda Welch, also cheap! I was pleasantly surprised with both.

    I just finished Allyson James’s Stormwalker. It has it all, a cute hot magic chick, a hunky sheriff, a god dressed in coyote, a magical bi-sexual mirror. Oh and did I mention the sexy black and red dragon that is disguised as a 6’8 hunka, hunka burning love…pun intended. ;-)

    I’m currently working my way through Sarah Mayberry’s backlist—mostly Harlequin Blaze titles—and I see All Romance eBooks has a bunch of them.  I usually buy direct from eharlequin as they are a tiny bit cheaper but with the sale, this is a good deal.

    Anyone have other contemporary romance recommendations for me?

  11. 11
    Carin says:

    If you like Sarah Mayberry, try Karina Bliss.  I like them both.

  12. 12

    Thank you, @MelB, I appreciate the love. 

    And I’d like to throw out words of support for Clay Greene’s case.  I read about it a couple weeks back and was horrified.  It sounds like they did all the right things…and then the local government came down on them like something out of Kafka.  Horrible.

    Books I have read and loved most recently are:
    The Sexorcist – paranoral romantic comedy by Vivi Andrews
    Biting Me Softly – vampire romantic comedy by Mary Hughs
    Practice Makes Perfect – contemporary romantic comedy by Julie James
    The Truth About Lord Stoneville – historical romance by Sabrina Jeffries

    Well, I’ve never jumped on a proverbial “pimp” bandwagon before.  .  .so, here goes!!! 

    You might want to check out Eternal Bondage and Eternal Betrayal, urban fantasies, that feature Avna Soulsmith, a strong but emotionally flawed heroine.  Avna’s (prejudiced) crusade to protect the public from vampires is sorely tested with the arrival of Constantine, The Great, an ages-old vampire progenitor.  Hot, lusty sparks ensue.

    The setting is in my home-town of Charleston, WV. 

    Thanks very much for a short ride on the SB’s “pimpmobile”!!!

    I don’t have a book to pimp, but I do have authors to recommend.

    Dana Marie Bell – Her Halle Pumas are great.  A lot of humor and good stories.  Also, she has a book out with Norse Gods, Very Much Alive.  I loved it.

    Mari Carr – Her Black and White series is very well written. 

    Vivian Arend – Her granite Lake wolves are very entertaining.  The first one, Wolf Signs has a deaf heroine.  I also enjoyed Turn It On, a contemporary from Samhain.

    Patricia Pellicane has some good westerns I would recommend.

    That’s my two cents worth.

    Holy crap, that’s horrifying!  What the hell is wrong with people?

    Oh, right, pimping.  I’m really digging K.A. Mitchell right now, having discovered her through Dear Author.  She writes extremely character-focused, extremely sexy m/m romance.  I love everything by her I’ve read so far.

    Did some say “feel free to pimp?” :)

    I have a book at AAR—Freya’s Gift.

    It’s an erotica short story from Samhain Publishing about a lost Viking tribe in North America that has been decimated by sickness. Most of the women have died, leaving the remaining men fighting over the ones that are left.

    The Viking leaders, a married couple, have to figure out how to heal their people and repopulate their tribe. Naturally, this turns out to involve a pagan fertility ritual (to Goddess Freya of the title) with the couple and another man who’s needed for his virility. Viking & a natural spring & fertility ritual. (I wanted to make it a hot spring, btw, but those aren’t natural to where I set it in North America, so I settled for a spring like in Saratoga NY.)

    I just about the hot Viking but, to me, it’s about how to love again after horrible tragedy. Only $3.50. :)

    No, not ashamed to pimp. Never. :) There’s a novel-length sequel too, that brings in the Romans hanging around in my alternate universe but, alas, it is not on AAR.

    I don’t know what I recommend but the Clay Greene case is just horrific and I think I will be buying from sites that are donating. Nothing better than romance for a cause.

    It’s only fair, since my TBR has grown since I’ve started reading your blog :)

    Vivi Andrews is awesome. I loved The Ghost Exterminator.

    I loved The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan.

    I’ve got Sold to the Highest Bidder by Donna Alward and Chasing Perfect by Susan Mallery on my short-list.

    If you like action with your romance, my titles from Samhain have that—Beneath the Surface is about two marine archaeologists who fall in love again while searching for history beneath the waves, Hot Shot is about a wildfire fighter and a reporter running for their lives in a fire in Montana and Breaking Daylight is about a soldier who finds himself saddled with a spitfire on a mission in Central America.

    I followed the link and read about the case.  How horrible.  I hope the county and the nursing home get taken to the cleaners. Even that won’t make up for what happened to Clay and Harold though.

    As for recommendations, I’ve recently downloaded Her Best Friend by Sarah Mayberry, What the Librarian Did by Karina Bliss and Mistress by Mistake by Maggie Robinson.  I haven’t read them yet but the reviews are all good and I’ve enjoyed all the previous Mayberry’s I’ve read. 

    The first 2 are definitely available from AAR but I don’t think the Robinson is.

    er, I mean ARe, not AAR!!  doh!

    I’ll pimp…and then some.  My fang series (Love Fang, Fang Shui, and Real Men Have Fangs) are all available at ARe.  I was a finalist in’s first original fiction contest, and you’ll find noble vampires (like the Cullens) in my stories.

    Several other books I’ve recently read and thoroughly enjoyed are:

    Spellbent by Lucy A. Snyder.  This urban fantasy (set in Columbus, Ohio) features an inexperienced witch and her ferret sidekick, Palimpsest.  It’s suspenseful and funny.

    Tempest Rising by Nicole Peeler.  The heroine, Jane True, has to be one of my new favorites.  She’s not kickass in the traditional sense (traditional kickass?), but she’s got a strength of character and depth that endears the reader.  Can’t wait for the next installment, which will debut this fall.

    Jumping on the pimp train for my new contemporary romance,
    Fringe Benefits
    , which was just released last month from Pink Petal Books.

    If you’re in the mood for a slow-burn contemporary romance with nary a Navy SEAL, serial killer, or vampire in sight, it might fit the bill.

    Okay, I’ll pimp my romantic suspense, Moonlight on Diamonds by Lydia Storm.  It feels like an updated To Catch A Thief involving the Hope Diamond and takes place in Paris, Washington DC and India.

    “This is a book you will not be able to put down.”
      – You Gotta Read Reviews

    “Moonlight on Diamonds is a pleasure to read, with layers of mystery that will keep you guessing to the end.”
      – Long and Short Reviews

    “Anyone who loves a good thriller involving jewel thieves and romance would LOVE this book.”
    – Between the Lines

    Don’t feel like pimping my smutty books, but thought I’d mention that my mom’s insanely awesome… I mean, y’all. Y’ALL. Joanie kicks ass. And reads erotica.

    Mommas across the land, I pimp thee. Happy Mother’s Day!

    I’m reading Mary Balogh’s backlist (with a detour through Garwood’s Claybourne’s) right now.  I know you can get some Balogh ebooks, having bought them.

    But more to the point—I followed the link for the Clay Greene case, and reading it gave me chills.  The worst part is knowing that some corporations in the business of taking care of elderly people would do this to anyone they could, regardless of their personal situation.  Not all caregivers, but a fair amount.

    This is another argument for electronic medical records.  Then, when the ambulance shows up, your DNR or other legal papers are right there for the paramedics, etc.  Not foolproof, but easier to prove.

    I won’t go on.  I could, though….

    ARe-books carries Desert Breeze’s contemporaries, including those on the sweet side. My titles are: ANGEL WITH A RAY GUN (a fun e-book); ANGEL WITH A BACKHOE (emo e-book); and DAMAGES (second chances story e-book).

    Go on. You know you want to. OK, do I get my fuzzy purple hat now?
