Books on Sale: Three Erotic Romances from Monica Murphy, Plus Divergent and The Fault in Our Stars

Book Crave - a couple against a black background looking like they're going to eat one another for brunch

Crave, book 1 in Monica Murphy's Billionaire Bachelor's Club trilogy, is .99c right now. This is erotic contemporary romance featuring a trio of billionaires (who are bachelors, obviously) (and part of a club) (like you do), and the first story rests on the bff/sibling/no no conflict, with the added bonus of excellent chemistry and really, really hot sex scenes, according to some reviewers.

Billionaire Archer Bancroft always gets what he wants—and he’s wanted Ivy Emerson, his best friend’s sister, for far too long. Being forbidden and untouchable only makes her more tempting. When a million-dollar bet with his friends throws down a challenge—last bachelor standing takes all—Archer knows he can win. That is, until one enchanted evening with Ivy takes his heart for a ride.

Ivy knows Archer is nothing but bad news: Infuriating, arrogant…and completely intoxicating. But despite her best efforts, she can’t seem to keep away.

When a stolen kiss leads to a night of heated passion, Ivy realizes she’s in trouble and in head over heels.

But in the light of day, everything seems clearer and Archer’s not so sure a one-night stand is all he wants. Concocting a plan to keep Ivy by his side, Archer might just be willing to lose this bet…and win the jackpot instead

Book Another close up, this time with pink text accents, and it looks like he's smelling her armpit.

Torn, book 2, is also .99c. This story is about billionaire 2, who is tempted by a woman tied (not literally although maybe) to his latest business acquisition. Time for a merger, eh? Nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more! Again: hot chemistry, hot sex, plus billionaires.

Marina Knight came to this party for one thing only: to slap Gage Emerson in the face. Poised to snatch up her family’s real estate empire, the sexy tycoon is on the verge of making an enemy for life—even if he can make her melt with a single kiss …

When Gage discovers that the alluring woman before him is the key to his latest acquisition, claiming her as his suddenly doesn’t seem quite so cut-and-dried. To get what he wants, he must get to know the fierce woman willing to face him down—as she steadily steals his heart.

Gage’s persistence and intense passion war with Marina’s determination to protect her family. As they delve deeper into an affair they didn’t see coming, Marina’s torn: Will she lose her heart to Gage—or everything she holds dear?

Book Savor by Monica Murphy - close up, against black background, this time with both characters' eyes closed

Savor is available for pre-order for .99c as well. This book comes out on 21 Janaury 2013. And yes, this is book 3 in the trilogy, which means that by the end, all bachelors will be accounted for and also no longer bachelors, because romance. I'm being silly, but really, this is three books for $3, with a pile of positive reviews that mention excellent writing and smoking hot scenes. And since it's going to be terrible cold tomorrow for most of the US, this is a good way to warm up somewhat!

New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy concludes her sexy Billionaire Bachelors Club series with a fiery romance that refuses to be left at the office…

Bryn James can’t take much more. Smart, sexy Matthew DeLuca is everything she wants in a man, but he’s also her boss—the youngest, hottest vineyard owner in the Napa Valley—and he doesn’t see her as anything more than his shy assistant. That’s all about to change. Armed with a hot new look and an attitude to match, Bryn is determined to catch Matt’s eye… professionalism be damned.

With his winery’s grand reopening approaching, Matt is trying to stay focused, but Bryn is suddenly making it very difficult. He’s always thought her prim demeanor effortlessly sexy, but Matt can’t deny that her transformation is jaw-dropping …and going to make it very difficult to keep his hands to himself.

But when one thing leads to another and suddenly Matt is stripping Bryn bare, he’ll be faced with the biggest risk of his career—and his heart. Can he convince her—and himself—that this might just be more than a no-strings office affair?

Book Divergent - a fiery symbol over a broken gray city

Divergent, the first book in the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth, is $3.99 right now. Book 2 is $4.99 and book 3 is $5.99. I went round and round with my self about whether to feature this one. $3.99 is a good price for a much-read book in a trilogy, but the ending of this series left a LOT of readers worse than unsatisfied. So if you're curious or if you have a dystopia-loving teen reader in your world, this is a good opportunity. But be ye warned about the rest of the series, k?

In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives.

For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death.

And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

 Book The Fault in Our Stars The Fault in Our Stars by John Green is still $3.99 at Amazon. This was probably The Uglycry Book of the Year in 2012. It's also being made into a film right now. Many, many readers have said this book is powerful and moving, and stays with you for a long, long time. 

 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.

    I got over the whole “terminal illness/cancer teen” plotline around the time I quit reading Lurlene McDaniel as a young teen. LOL I know a lot of people have RAVED about “The Fault In Our Stars”, but I just can’t bring myself to be interested.

    Well, there is a whole generation to introduce teen cancer books to, who have never heard of Lurlene McDaniel (sad, but true. Six Months to Live was THE book to read among all my middle school friends back in the day). The Fault in our Stars is far more self-aware, not at all Lifetime-y, though that still might be enough for some to venture into sick kid territory. I found it uplifting (though I did cry).

    The first Divergent book is a good read, a good deal before the movie comes out this year. I lost interest with the second book so I never made it to the end. Teen dystopia just isn’t my thing. But of that genre, Divergent does it well.

    Thanks as always for these deals.I am never at a shortage of stuff to read.

    I completely agree! I will defend to my premature and tragic death other people’s right to enjoy this genre, but I personally could not be less interested in this type of book. Also, I have no patience for authors who repeatedly write about characters who fall in love, contract/discover that they are afflicted with some dread incurable disease, suffer greatly, then die bravely, comforted by the fact that at least they got to spend a little bit of time with a beloved. I’m not being fair, though; sometimes the character has the disease before falling in love, just for an extra helping of angst.
    A full 35% of why I love Anna from Anna and the French kiss is due to how she and Étienne neg on her father’s Nicholas Sparks-ish tendencies to give the people in his novels terminal diseases. I probably sound heartless, but I’m still scarred by that little Amish kid with incurable cancer from that one McDaniel book. I have no idea what that book was called, and I’m not looking it up. Okay, I lied. The googles says that there was a freaking trilogy of Amish books are you kidding me????????? Fuuuuuuuuu. Sorry, I digressed. From my rant. Sorry some more.

    To be fair re: The Fault in Our Stars, the characters are aware of those kinds of stereotypical “brave cancer kid” tropes. The book is better than that. Sad bits, yes, but I didn’t find it to be maudlin or trite. One of my coworkers just finished it and didn’t care for it, but it wasn’t the plot that she had problems with. She thought that the characters were too adult-sounding for their age (they are an educated and self-aware set). I think it’s worth the read, esp. at $3.99.
