The Trouble with Valentine's –  Kelly Hunter

As far as women’s fashion accessories went, he was spectacular. A black-haired, cobalt-eyed, dangerous- looking toy who no doubt warned you outright not to bother playing with him if you didn’t like his rules. He was like a Hermes handbag; women saw and women wanted, even though they knew the price was going to be astronomical.

Hallie Bennett likes a challenge, though – and his offer is tempting: $5,000 if she pretends to be his wife for a week. It might not be the most traditional Valentine’s Day proposal… but she’s hardly a traditional girl. Maybe a week in the high life, with a man to match, will be just the ticket. Just as long as she doesn’t start wishing the ‘I do’ is real.

The Kommandant's Girl and The Diplomat's Wife by Pam Jenoff

The Kommandant's Girl:

Nineteen-year-old Emma Bau has been married only three weeks when Nazi tanks thunder into her native Poland. Within days Emma's husband, Jacob, is forced to disappear underground, leaving her imprisoned within the city's decrepit, moldering Jewish ghetto. But then, in the dead of night, the resistance smuggles her out. Taken to Krakow to live with Jacob's Catholic cousin, Krysia, Emma takes on a new identity as Anna Lipowski, a gentile.

Emma's already precarious situation is complicated by her introduction to Kommandant Richwalder, a high-ranking Nazi official who hires her to work as his assistant. Urged by the resistance to use her position to access details of the Nazi occupation, Emma must compromise her safety—and her marriage vows—in order to help Jacob's cause. As the atrocities of war intensify, so does Emma's relationship with the Kommandant, building to a climax that will risk not only her double life, but also the lives of those she loves.

The Diplomat's Wife: 

Love was not a luxury Marta Nedermann could afford during the war. But with the Nazis defeated, her life takes a surprising turn when she meets Paul, a handsome American soldier. Their whirlwind romance is cut short when his troop is deployed, but promises of marriage and a rendezvous in London bolster Marta s spirits. Then, tragically, a plane crash claims Paul's life, and Marta is left alone to discover to her delight and dismay that she is pregnant.

Now, two years later, Marta has picked up the pieces and moved on. She has started over in London with her husband, a British diplomat, with whom she shares a companionable, if passionless, marriage. Simon asks her no questions, and Marta is happy to keep close her memories of Paul and let her deeds of the past remain unspoken.

But Marta's new life is anything but simple. A new war has been brought home to her doorstep: Communist loyalists have infiltrated British intelligence, and the one person who holds the key to exposing the leak is connected to Marta's past. There is a traitor amongst them who needs to prevent Marta s involvement, and no one – not her former friends or current lover – can be trusted.

    This is a great idea – I’m sure your Antipodean followers find it as frustrating as I do that the sales in the USA are not replicated world-wide.  Please could you do something similar for the UK??  Just every now and then? 

    If nothing else it would either confirm or dispel the feeling I have that the multinational publishers are not behaving fairly, and rarely discount books in the UK even when the self-same books are sold cheaply in the US.  I can see there might be some true reasons when they’re print books, but I cannot see any reason why ebooks should be priced differently.

    HJ – I am working on finding sales listings for the UK. I don’t want to leave you out! It’s tricky for me to find them bc I can’t see the price. I get a little message to get back to my geographic territory where I belong. I’m working on it though! Sorry for the wait!
