Thanks to Julie for the heads up on this sale!
Sourcebooks has some daily deals through January 1, but the newsletter that is sent out never renders correctly in my inbox. I *think* this is today's deal, so I'm guessing that (a) these prices are today only (29 December) and (b) that they're available at most retailers. I know BN, Amazon, and Kobo are showing the .99c US price as of right now.
So: four Susanna Kearsley titles for .99c!
As if Greywethers were a portal between worlds, she finds herself transported into seventeenth-century England, becoming Mariana, a young woman struggling against danger and treachery, and battling a forbidden love.
Each time Julia travels back, she becomes more enthralled with the past…until she realizes Mariana’s life is threatening to eclipse her own, and she must find a way to lay the past to rest or lose the chance for happiness in her own time.
This book was on sale last week, and now it's .99c US. (I don't know about international availability at that price. I'm sorry). It was a Sizzling Book Club Pick, and it is truly an amazing book. Time travel and paranormal usually don't work for me, and this book is a singular exception to my normal preferences. It's absorbing, beautiful, and made me tear up at the end. It's amazing – buy it for yourself or for someone who likes historical romance, mystery, or really, really powerful writing.
In the spring of 1708, an invading Jacobite fleet of French and Scottish soldiers nearly succeeded in landing the exiled James Stewart in Scotland to reclaim his crown. Now, Carrie McClelland hopes to turn that story into her next bestselling novel. Settling herself in the shadow of Slains Castle, she creates a heroine named for one of her own ancestors and starts to write.
But when she discovers her novel is more fact than fiction, Carrie wonders if she might be dealing with ancestral memory, making her the only living person who knows the truth-the ultimate betrayal-that happened all those years ago, and that knowledge comes very close to destroying her…
“Whatever time we have,” he said, “it will be time enough.” Eva Ward returns to the only place she truly belongs, the old house on the Cornish coast, seeking happiness in memories of childhood summers. There she finds mysterious voices and hidden pathways that sweep her not only into the past, but also into the arms of a man who is not of her time.
But Eva must confront her own ghosts, as well as those of long ago. As she begins to question her place in the present, she comes to realize that she too must decide where she really belongs.
Archaeologist Verity Grey has been drawn to the dark legends of the Scottish Borderlands in search of the truth buried in a rocky field by the sea. Her eccentric boss has spent his whole life searching for the resting place of the lost Ninth Roman Legion and is convinced he's finally found it—not because of any scientific evidence, but because a local boy has “seen” a Roman soldier walking in the fields, a ghostly sentinel who guards the bodies of his long-dead comrades.
Here on the windswept shores, Verity may find the answer to one of the great unsolved mysteries of our time. Or she may uncover secrets someone buried for a reason.
