Books on Sale: A Mix of Jill Shalvis, Lori Wilde, and Penny Marshall

Book Love at First Sight - cowboy hat, biceps and a tight tshirt.

Love at First Sight by Lori Wilde is $1.99 right now as a KDD. It doesn't seem to be price matched today, but it does have a 3.7 GR average, and is book 1 of her Cupid, Texas, series. Have any small town conteporary fans read this one?

Welcome to Cupid, Texas, where every wish for love comes true…

In her sexy new series of romance novels, New York Times bestselling romance author Lori Wilde, introduces a town where the residents are more than likely to fall in love at first sight.

Passion has been notably lacking in the life of sensible Natalie McCleary. But when ex–Navy SEAL Dade Vega roars into Cupid on his motorcycle, and she stumbles on him stark naked and soaking wet, she suddenly understands what it means to be struck by love. Dade feels it too.

Will he stick around and give them both a happy ending or will this footloose loner move on and leave her heartbroken?

These two are both Amazon-only, but I'm waiting for them to be matched. It's weird that they're only in one place right now, I think.

Book The Heat is On Jill Shalvis - two people embracing on a sand dune Get off the dunes people

The Heat is On is a duology featuring The Heat is On by Jill Shalvis, originally published in 2010, and a second story by Natalie Anderson, which might be called Blame It On the Bikini or maybe something else because the listings for this book are WEIRD I tell you. Or I'm just sleepy. Either way, this two-in-one set is $1.99 for Kindle right now.

Oh, dear. Bella Manchelli is so not having a good day. First, she's deliciously exhausted from last night's sizzling one-night stand. Second, there's a (gulp) dead body at her back door. Third…um, that scrumptious one-nighter is at her front door… and he's wearing a badge!

Police Officer Jacob Madden is all about duty. Until he shows up looking for a homicide…and runs right into last night's slice of sexy heaven! Damn, he just can't think straight when he's around Bella. All he wants to do is lick her up one side and down the other….

Can duty and smoking-hot sex blend for a while? Definitely! Until Jacob discovers that several of the guys Bella's dated have turned up dead. Jacob loves being around Bella. But is he ready to be used as target practice?

Book my Mother was Nuts My Mother Was Nuts by Penny Marshall is the Audible deal of the day at $2.95. This is an autobiography/memoir – unabridged at 8 hours and 30 minutes – read by Penny Marshall as well. The reviews on Audible say it's both funny and touching, and that Marshall's performance is hilarious.

Most people know Penny Marshall as the director of Big and A League of Their Own. What they don’t know is her trailblazing career was a happy accident. In this funny and intimate memoir, Penny takes us from the stage of The Jackie Gleason Show in 1955 to Hollywood’s star-studded sets, offering up some hilarious detours along the way.

My Mother Was Nuts is an intimate backstage pass to Penny’s personal life, her breakout role on The Odd Couple, her exploits with Cindy Williams and John Belushi, and her travels across Europe with Art Garfunkel on the back of a motorcycle. We see Penny get married. And divorced. And married again (the second time to Rob Reiner). We meet a young Carrie Fisher, whose close friendship with Penny has spanned decades. And we see Penny at work with Tom Hanks, Mark Wahlberg, Whoopi Goldberg, Robert De Niro, and Whitney Houston.

Throughout it all, from her childhood spent tap dancing in the Bronx, to her rise as the star of Laverne & Shirley, Penny lived by simple rules: “try hard, help your friends, don’t get too crazy, and have fun.” With humor and heart, My Mother Was Nuts reveals there’s no one else quite like Penny Marshall.

    Just finished reading Jill Shalvis’ The Heat Is On and can I just mention how distracting it is to have Bella and Jacob as the H/h.  Ugh.
