Books on Sale: Historicals from Caroline Linden and Shari Anton, Plus an Anthology

Book a woman in a gold dress embracing a dude

Love and Other Scandals by Caroline Linden is a KDD today at $1.99. There may be price matching later in the day (I hope so). This is historical romance about a tall, forthright misfit heroine and a rake who falls for her. Readers on GR praised the emotional connection they felt with the characters. Have you read this?

Joan Bennet is tired of being a wallflower. Thanks to some deliciously scandalous—and infamous—stories, she has a pretty good idea of what she's missing as a spinster. Is even a short flirtation too much to ask for?

Tristan, Lord Burke, recognizes Joan at once for what she is: trouble. Not only is she his best friend's sister, she always seems to catch him at a disadvantage. The only way he can win an argument is by kissing her senseless. He'd give anything to get her out of her unflattering gowns.

But either one of those could cost him his bachelor status, which would be dreadful—wouldn't it?

 Book At the Duke's Wedding RECOMMENDED: At the Duke's Wedding is a self-published anthology with stories by Caroline Linden, Maya Rodale, Katharine Ashe, and Miranda Neville. The four stories take place over one wedding weekend (hence the title) and are inter-related, so that as you read one, you see glimpses of the other characters. It's innovative and a fun read – and well worth the $2.99.

 As society gathers at Kingstag Castle for the wedding of the year, matrimony is in the air. But who will be the bride? With swoonworthy lords, witty ladies, eccentric relatives, a gaggle of free-spirited girls, not to mention the world’s best high perch phaeton, it’s a recipe for mayhem — and romance. Award winning, best-selling authors Katharine Ashe, Caroline Linden, Miranda Neville and Maya Rodale serve up delectable Regency fun and a sexy contemporary twist in this anthology of original novellas.

Four authors, four couples, four deliciously romantic surprises. When it comes to love, anything can happen…

That Rogue Jack by Maya Rodale
Jack, Lord Willoughby is charming, handsome, and utterly irresponsible. In other words, he’s the worst person to entrust with the ducal wedding ring. Miss Henrietta Black is prim, proper and the ideal person to help find the priceless family heirloom that’s gone missing… as long as she isn’t distracted by Jack’s gorgeous smile and tantalizing attempts at seduction. They MUST find the ring before the wedding… if they aren’t too busy falling in love.

P.S. I Love You by Miranda Neville
Handsome, inarticulate Frank Newnham asks for his cousin Christian's help when he woos Rosanne Lacy by letter. Rosanne falls for Frank's delicious prose, but when they meet in person at the duke's wedding party, Rosanne can't understand why Frank seems so … dull. And why is she drawn to the dark brooding Earl of Bruton, with his scarred face and air of melancholy?

When I Met My Duchess by Caroline Linden
Gareth Cavendish, Duke of Wessex, believes he’s chosen the perfect bride… until he meets her sister and lightning strikes—literally! Now he’s the only member of society dreading the wedding of the season. Or is he? Cleo Barrows can’t fathom why her knees weaken every time the handsome duke approaches, or why her sister isn’t in the clouds at the prospect of marrying him. But the more often wedding plans throw Cleo and Gareth intimately together, the faster time is running out to turn the celebration of the summer into the scandal of the year.

How Angela Got Her Rogue Back by Katharine Ashe
When gorgeous Lord Trenton Ascot beckons to history grad student Angela Cowdrey from the pages of a comic book, she thinks she’s going crazy. When Trent rescues her from a lake and she claims she’s from the future, he knows he is. But a blackmailer is threatening Trent’s family and Angela is determined to help. While unraveling the mystery of her time-travel trip to the duke’s wedding, this modern girl and Regency lord just might discover a passion that defies centuries.

Magic In His Kiss by Shari Anton is $1.99. This is a medieval romance – with a really gorgeous cover (isn't it pretty?). It has arranged marriages, political intrigues, heroines in abbeys, and a road trip – plus a Welsh hero.

By order of King Stephen, Nicole de Leon has been confined to Bledloe Abbey since her father's death eight years ago. As an orphaned noblewoman, she has always known that she would be married off to strengthen King Stephen's political position. But as she reached marriageable age, she never dreamt that her extended family would come to her aid and prevent this unwanted marriage.

For Nicole's uncle, Connorap Maelgwn, has always despised King Stephen and would do anything to thwart him…even commit an act of war by kidnapping the bride the King needs to solidify an alliance. But Connor can't charge through England with an army. He needs a warrior who's trustworthy…a warrior like Rhodri ap Dafydd.

Rhodri ap Dafydd, a bard and warrior, has one purpose: to bring Nicole de Leon and home to Wales. He has no interest at all in politics–he's merely helping a friend. But from the moment he lays eyes on Nicole, friendship is the last thing on his mind. With her fiery nature and her sharp tongue, Nicole is unlike any woman he has ever met. But falling in love with her was never an option. Brought together by fate but soon torn apart by war, can these two star-crossed lovers find a future together?

    I really enjoyed Caroline Linden’s interview about the book above with all about romance. The Interview contained information I didn’t know and a lot of history and I didn’t know:
    I’m going to link to the interview so people can see what they think.

    I found the interview fascinating and it intrigued me about the book.

    I looooooooved Love and Other Scandals! After I read it, I went on a massive Caroline Linden binge because I fell so hard for her writing – but LaoS is still my very favorite of hers. So sweet and funny and real!

    I totally bought Love and Other Scandals because of this sale, and here I am, to join the chorus of YES IT WAS WORTH IT. It was so sweet (without being cloying), the chemistry was fantastic, and there was no kidnapping, rape, murder, etc. I really, really enjoyed it – and yes, read it straight through in one sitting.
