Shadow Kiss is $2.99. True story – yesterday I heard an ad for the movie on the radio, and was half listening to the plot summary in the ad. I tuned in just to the point when they said something about bodyguards, and thought, “Aw, man, that sounds like a ripoff of Vampire Academy.” Next line – come see Vampire Academy, based on the bestselling books by Richelle Mead. Oh! OK!

If you're not feeling like vampires, Shana Galen's True Spies is on sale today for $1.99. This is the second book in Galen's Lord and Lady Spies series, which is espionage + the Regency + banter. I read the first one in the series, and thought the emotional development between the characters was excellent, but the spy/espionage mystery plot was obvious.
