RECOMMENDED: The Shadowy Horses by Susanna Kearsley is $1.99 – for today only, I think! Egads!
We selected this for the 2013 DABWAHA before becoming aware that it wasn't eligible (oops). Kearsley is a wonderfully evocative writer, blending historical, paranormal, mystery and romance into rich and absorbing books. $1.99 is a great price for any of her books.
THE INVINCIBLE NINTH ROMAN LEGION MARCHES FROM YORK TO FIGHT THE NORTHERN TRIBES. AND THEN VANISHES FROM THE PAGES OF HISTORY.
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.
Make it Fast, Cook It Slow: The Big Book of Everyday Slow Cooking is $1.99. This is a Kindle-& BN-only deal but I wanted to share because I love love love digital cookbook bargains, especially on tablet readers. I can bookmark, search by ingredient, and keep all my cookbooks in one device as opposed to a cabinet. (I'm not the only one who has cookbooks that I keep for all of 2 or 3 recipes inside right? I hope not.) Digital cookbooks for $2: they make me happy. Also hungry.
Make It Fast, Cook It Slow is the first cookbook from Stephanie O'Dea, the extremely popular slow cooking blogger: affordable, delicious, nutritious, and gluten-free recipes to delight the entire family. In December 2007, Stephanie O'Dea made a New Year's resolution: she'd use her slow cooker every single day for an entire year, and write about it on her very popular blog.
The result: more than three million visitors, and more than 300 fabulous, easy-to-make, family-pleasing recipes, including: Breakfast Risotto, Vietnamese Roast Chicken, Tomatoes and Goat Cheese with Balsamic Cranberry Syrup, Falafel, Philly Cheesesteaks, Creme Brulee –and much more. Make It Fast, Cook It Slow is the perfect cookbook for easy, quick prep, inexpensive ingredients, and meals that taste like you spent hours at the stove.
Victoria Dahl's first book, To Tempt a Scotsman, is on sale for $2.79-$3.19, and is coupon-eligible. If you like historical romance with sometimes surprising emotional depth, you'll like this.
After finding herself at the center of a very public scandal that left one man dead and another on the run, Lady Alexandra Huntington has exiled herself to her brother's estate and is content to manage his affairs. But the arrival of darkly handsome Collin Blackburn awakens her curiosity and her desire–and the advantage of being a fallen woman is that she can be ruined only once. . .
After a promise sworn to his father, Collin Blackburn is compelled to seek the aid of the woman who brought about his brother's death in a senseless duel. Yet Lady Alexandra is not the shameless femme fatale he expected. In fact, Collin suspects she is guilty of nothing more than a hunger to experience passion, and the brawny Scot is certainly equipped to oblige.
But the quick-witted, keenly sensual Alexandra has a few lessons of her own to impart–on life, love, and the delicious joys of succumbing to temptation. . .
