Books On Sale

Books on Sale: Three More Sarah Morgan Titles, Plus Bestsellers and a Hanukkah Novella!

Yesterday we started with four Sarah Morgan titles on sale; here are three more, PLUS some bestsellers on sale, too!

 Book Invitation to Sin

RECOMMENDED: Invitation to Sin is about a heroine who is very misunderstood, who is working hard to reinvent herself, and who is completely overwhelmed by the hero and trying to remain aloof. This is also a faux engagement story and I really have a terrific weakness for that storyline.

 Snapped and seduced: there's nothing more dangerous than a restless Corretti…

Taylor Carmichael holds one thing precious: the reputation she's spent years rebuilding. Then one encounter with Corretti lothario Luca, a bottle of chilled champagne and a skintight dress and the paparazzi have their shot.

Cool, calm and irritatingly aloof, Luca couldn't care less. Splash his face over the papers—he has bigger fish to fry. But Taylor is fuming. Luca had the chance to halt the press and refused. Well, this time she'll make the headlines work for her:

Stop the press—bad boy Luca Corretti to wed screen siren Taylor Carmichael!

Then a million-dollar business deal throws them together, and keeping his distance is no longer an option.

But Fia is living a lie. If it's ever discovered that her precious little son is Santino's heir, she'll be disowned-their families' feud is legendary! But her real fear? That she can't forget the scorching memories of her one night with the enemy-and that she still craves more…

Raz demands one thing in return for the safe haven Layla is seeking — this brooding desert king wants to make her his queen! Her freedom might be secured, but now her heart is at risk, for soon she's lost to the scorching heat of their marriage bed.

 Book The Fault in Our Stars The Fault in Our Stars by John Green is currently $3.99. If there were such a list, I'd say this was probably The Uglycry Books of the Year in 2012. It's also being made into a film right now.

 Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis.

But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be completely rewritten.

    Once again I feel compelled to write you a thank you poem.

    There once was a Smart Bitch called Sarah
    In the whole land there was no one fairer
    Deep down in her gullet
    She craved a man with a mullet
    But found they were rarer and rarer.

    (you probably don’t want to hear verse three)

    BWAHAHA. You know, when I met my husband, when we were in high school, he did rock a rather curly-puff mullet….

    Are you kidding me? Of course we want the third verse! Even if it doesn’t come with more sales, although the combination of sales and limericks is hard to beat.

    So although they are rare, you found one!

    For some strange reason, I cannot find our graduating yearbook…. I find this… suspicious.

    I find it suspicious too! (maybe it went the way of the mullet) No more poems kkw until Sarah produces that yearbook :)

    Had to hit the button on the holiday book. Really looking forward to the Hanukkah story, and it is a historical without being a Regency or Victorian – double book score in my book.

    I have this as-yet-unfulfilled hope that some day I will find a holiday romance that doesn’t involve enforced cheeriness or miracles. Something like Connie Willis’s Christmas stories, but with more naughty cuddling and fewer aliens.

    I think there was a Spindle Cove novella that sort of worked for me, but it wasn’t long enough to erase the memory of all the treacly, overly-mystical, badly-written holiday books that I started and then abandoned.

    And don’t even get me started on the atrocious holiday erotica. I mean, candy cane penetration? Really? Can you even imagine the yeast infections?

    I’m looking for something with actual characters, not cardboard cut-outs of Grinches/Scrooges, and a plot that doesn’t involve any of those characters learning “The True Meaning of Christmas” (TM).

    @Dread Pirate Rachel – you made me lol with that candy cane penetration.  I hear you on the Christmas stories (and I also love Connie Willis’ Miracle).

    I have a few recommendations -

    Nancy Warren’s The Nutcracker Sweet, in the Jingle Bell Rock anthology is sadly oop but is one of my all time favorite Christmas novellas.  It’s a rivals to lovers story that involves a sexy bet at an office Christmas party and it actually works (usually office Christmas party romantica is a big miss for me).

    The Night Before Christmas is an anthology with short, hot stories.  The Lori Foster is way too cheery for my tastes, but the others are good – especially the Jill Shalvis and the Erin McCarthy.

    Carla Kelly’s Coming Home for Christmas has three historical novellas set during three different wars.  Carla Kelly writes real, believable characters falling in love in trying circumstances – I don’t remember any forced cheer or miracles, although ymmv.  My favorite is the middle one, with a British nurse and American doctor in the Crimean War.

    If you read m/m, Astrid Amara has three Hanukkah novellas that are more screw ball comedy than heart warming treacle – Holiday Outing, Carol of the Bellskis, and Miracle of the Bellskis.

    @Dread pirate Rachel:  Candy cane penetration?!?!  Dude, tell me more, if only for the sheer entertainment factor! Maybe this is the light at the end of the holidays-with-the-family tunnel!

    @Dread Pirate Rachel:

    Courtney Milan’s “This Wicked Gift” is, like “Once Upon a Winter’s Eve” (the Spindle Cove entry), short. But it’s amazing. It’s in an anthology with two other entries, neither of which I’ve read or intend to, but the chance to read anything by Courtney Milan is not something I can pass up. And there’s also “A Kiss for Midwinter,” which is longer and sold alone (or in her novella collection, which does NOT include “This Wicked Gift”) and is loosely tied to her Brothers Sinister series (features a secondary character from The Duchess War). I highly recommend both of them because, like all of Milan’s work, they’re spectacularly-written fresh takes on the genre. And, you know, are set in during the holidays.

    Grace Burrowes has some holiday novels in her Windham series: Lady Sophie’s Christmas Wish, Lady Louisa’s Christmas Knight, and Lady Jenny’s Christmas Portrait. I enjoyed all three.

    Dread Pirate Rachel says:

    @Amy K, the spectacularly unsexy “erotic” novella was called Jingle Ball (yes, really) by Cari Quinn. It was in an anthology that I purchased for the sake of one story. I feel that I should clarify that the story I wanted was NOT the candy cane one. In addition to some seriously questionable dildo stand-ins, Jingle Ball also featured boss-on-secretary sexytimes, and I find that particular dynamic unappealing.

    @cleo, I think I may own The Night Before Christmas. It sounds quite familiar. I may have purchased it last year and then burned myself out on holiday stories before I got around to reading it. I haven’t heard of the others, though, so I’ll be sure to check them out.

    @Cat C, I absolutely loved A Kiss for Midwinter. Good lord, I still get swoony over Jonas Grantham. I’ve really enjoyed the entire Brothers Sinister series, and Courtney Milan is one of only three authors on my auto-buy list. I don’t have This Wicked Gift, though. I suspect it may have been published before I discovered CM—or possibly I just didn’t want to buy an entire anthology. I must and shall acquire it.

    Thanks, y’all! I love this community. :-)

    Genghis Mom says:

    I have to second the Grace Burrowes books. I loved those. I also seem to remember a Christmas story written by a diffetent author about a time traveling revolutionary war soldier. I seem to remember it rather fondly, though I recall it being ridiculous.

    Kelly S says:

    @Dread Pirate Rachel. Have you read “Hot Toy” novella by Jenny Cruise?  It’s in the anthology “Santa Baby.”  We have an aunt desperately searching for the hot toy of Christmas for her nephew while being hit on by an ex & possibly a student on Christmas Eve.  Spies, secret agents & gun fire happen before the night is over.  Not much in the classic holiday stories in this one.

    KarenF says:

    Seconding Cleo’s recommendation for Carla Kelly to note that there’s an ebook reissue of four of her Christmas novellas for $2.99.  (Also one of her full length novels, “Marian’s Christmas Wish” is priced at 2.99).

    I’ve generally enjoyed Mary Balogh’s Chirstmas novels, especially “Christmas Belle.”

  16. 16

    Hey Sarah – Did you ever read “Carol of the Bellskies” and “Miracle of the Bellskies” by Astrid Amara?  Lovely, fun and sexy male/male romance both set around Hannukkah and also dealing with partners (and families) from different releigious backgrounds. I re-read them every year.


  17. 17

    Thanks for the tip on the novella collection. I miss the old Signet Regency holiday collections, and it’s nice to know publishers are still buying these stories.

    Jill-Marie says:

    Arrrgh! Just how many books has Sarah Morgan written? How many are on sale? How many of her books will my Kindle hold before it explodes?

    And can someone please find me all the time I need to read all of Ms. Morgan’s wonderful stories??
