Book Amber Beach

Amber Beach by Elizabeth Lowell is $1.99 right now at Amazon. When we did our round up of Elizabeth Lowell recommendations, many people recommended her Donovans romantic suspense series set amid gems and precious stones, and this is the first of that series. Sarrible in particular said this book was on of her favorite sick-day re-reads. 

Honor Donovan is a shrewd businesswoman, yet she has been shut out of Donovan International by her father and four brothers. When her favorite brother Kyle vanishes, along with a fortune in stolen amber, Honor's questions are ignored by the Donovan males. Defying them, she heads to the San Juan Islands of the Pacific Northwest in search of answers.

Honor needs a guide because she knows nothing about running a boat — and she knows nothing about Jake Mallory until he answers her ad. One of the things she doesn't know is that Jake is much more than a fishing guide. Until Kyle disappeared, Jake was brokering amber deals in the Baltic for Donovan International. Honor is completely unaware of the old wars, new politics, greed, and stolen amber that have lured ruthless, high-stakes players from around the globe.

Jake wants no part of the intrigue, or of a Donovan woman in his life, but he suspects the Donovans have set him up to take the fall for Kyle's treachery. The way Jake sees it, some Donovan is going to pay for his troubles, and it just may turn out to be Honor

Jake and Honor cast off on a journeys moldering with distrust, betrayal, vengeance… and temptation. A hunger grows between them that is as dangerous as the secrets they keep. Alone at sea, they pursue the stubborn mystery of the Amber Room, flee from relentless enemies, and fight against trusting each other. Yet when Honor and Jake dare to confide in one another, they face a final truth: the penalty for betrayal is death; the reward is a lifetime…together.

Book All or Nothing

All or Nothing by Dixie Lee Brown is $2.99. All three books in the series so far are on sale. This is book 1, and is military romantic suspense. Readers loved the plot twists and the very fast pace in particular, and the book has a 3.8 star average on GR.

Someone wants Cara Sinclair dead. One minute she's halfheartedly enjoying an Oregon Coast casino, and the next she's being chased by hit men. Rescued by a total stranger, Cara must decide whether she can trust her safety to this Joe Reynolds and his team of ruthless mercenaries. The more time she spends with Joe, the more her desire for him grows. But can he truly protect her, or is she placing them all in mortal danger?

Joe agreed to protect Cara as a promise to a dying man. He never expected to feel such heat between them, or her total lack of faith in him. Now he must convince her that her only hope lies with him. Because Joe is starting to realize that he won't be satisfied with just saving her life . . . now, he wants it all.

Book When I Find You

When I Find You by Dixie Lee Brown is $2.99. This is book 2, and the heroine is a nanny whose job puts her life in danger. Some readers indicate that there is a touch of heroine-running-down-the-dark-alley-alone syndrome, but others LOVED this book and the series. Have you read it?

As a former Marine, Walker could find a needle in a haystack. But when he's asked by the U.S. Marshals to track down a nanny fleeing from the mafia, he's sure she'll be more trouble than she's worth. Especially after the sexy little thing clubs him and leaves him for dead. Walker's stunned by her courage—and her curves—and can't help feeling drawn to this damsel trying to dig her way out of distress. He'll find her, and when he does, it'll take more than the mafia to tear him away.

Darcy Maddox never expected to be running for her life. But when it suddenly looks like foe may become friend, Darcy's faced with a choice: Go it alone or trust a man she just met—never mind the way his touch gets her heart pounding.

The choice seems simple enough until she realizes it's not just her life at stake—it's her heart.

Ex-cop Ty Whitlock has spent the last six years waiting for his past to catch up with him. When it finally does, he isn't expecting the woman he loves—the one who walked out on him—to be caught in its web. He knows she's moved on, but he can't help wanting another chance with the petite beauty. Ty's got only one choice: find Rayna and keep her safe. But that's the easy part. Once he finds her, can he convince her to stay?

    Am I the only person in the universe that doesn’t like Rick Steves?

    You are not. I have seen Rick Steves haters on other sites. Rick is very good for the average first time European traveler. Yes many of the tips he gives are obvious. For a good over all planning guide he is a good place to start.

    @kkw – oh, dear. What don’t you like about him? I listen to his podcast and he’s a pretty solid interviewer, but that’s what I have the most experience with. Do you dislike his books?

    I’VE BOUGHT SO MANY BOOKS.  I bought 2 from Susanna Kearsley, Jeannie Lin’s The Lotus Palace, I’ll Be Seeing You by Loretta Nyhan and Suzanne Hayes, Miss Buncle’s Book by D.E. Stevenson, Tousle Me by Lucy V. Morgan,  The Sun Wolf and Starhawk Series by Barbara Hambly, Defiance by Stephanie Tyler, For My Lady’s Heart by Laura Kinsale, Back Across the Styx by Karalynn Lee, and many Victoria Dahl.  Anybody else have recommendations that the code works for?

    Sadly, the Kobo code no longer works, it ended this morning or something. I could have done a lot of damage.

    Guys!  Tempest in Time, the subject of my favoritest Redheadedgirl review EVER is on sale at Amazon today for $0.99…I have to admit, I’m kind of tempted!

    Rick Steves strikes me as unbearably condescending, and strangely earnest about it. Like, I don’t need someone to tell me to tie my shoes, and it doesn’t make me feel better that he seems genuinely worried I won’t be able to work out how to do it. I’ve done some of his audio walking tours, but I’ve never been able to finish one.  Everyone I know adores him, and I just don’t get it.

    @kkw: Rick Steves is a smug snot! Years ago my mother and I went on an Italy tour led by Steves……I begged my mom to split off from the group….no-go….she was smitten.  Two years ago we ran into him in Paris (he’s ruined the Rue Cler it’s run amok with Americans)…….OMG he was so annoying I wanted to smack him!

    The book How To Be A Grouch by Oscar the Grouch was my fave as a kid.
