Books on Sale: First Graves on the Right, VIking Vampire SEAL Angels, and Austenland

RECOMMENDED: Book First Grave on the RightFirst Grave on the Right is the first book in Darynda Jones' Charley Davidson series, and it's $2.99 right now. When I've been at conferences with Jones, readers and authors come up to her and tell her how much they love this series. This book won the Golden Heart in 2009, and the RITA for Best First Book in 2012. The heroine, Charley, is terrific. I listened to the audiobook performance by Lorelei King (after buying the Kindle copy on sale I was offered a discounted audio copy) and it was really good. I didn't want to stop walking the dogs, that's for sure.

 Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people.

And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light.” But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice.

Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life…and it turns out he might not be dead after all.

In fact, he might be something else entirely.

We've been over this before, so I expect you know the answer. Book Kiss of SurrenderYou know what's better than viking vampire angels? Viking vampire Navy SEAL angels. Yes! Correct!

And you know what's better than viking vampire Navy SEAL angels? Viking vampire Navy SEAL angels for .99c! Go hard or go home, is what I always say when it comes to vampire viking Navy SEAL angels. But you knew that.

 What romance reader can resist a hero who is both Viking…and vampire? In the second installment of New York Times bestselling author Sandra Hill's exciting Deadly Angels series, Nicole Tasso, Navy SEAL is powerless to resist the “vangel” in her midst…

And the mystery surrounding her thousand-year-old suitor only makes him more desirable…and more dangerous!

Filled with Sandra Hill's trademark combination of smoldering sensuality and laugh-out-loud humor, Kiss of Surrender: A Deadly Angels Book will leave paranormal and urban fantasy romance fans hungry for more from this award-winning author.

We've been over this: IBook Kiss of Temptationf you're going to have angels, make them vampire viking angels, right? Right. Kiss of Temptation is $1.99. The first book in the series is .99c, and the second, Kiss of Pride, is about $5.00, so if you're after viking vampire angels, you can have all three for around $8.

The thing I like about Sandra Hill's writing, whether she's got time traveling vikings who find careers in Hollywood or who bring their entire posse of children with them into the future, is that the over-the-top what whaat? aspect is done knowingly. There's a comedy to these books with the silliness, and I'm always a fan of comic silliness.

 Kiss of Tempation is the third romance in New York Times bestselling author’s Sandra Hill’s beloved Deadly Angels series. For centuries, Ivak Sigurdsson has served the archangel Michael as a vangel – a viking vampire angel. Ready to demonstrate that he is more than just a libidinous heartbreaker, he agrees to help lawyer Gabrielle Sonnier.

But while her problems are in need of serious attention, so is their attraction for one another. Sexy and sassy, Kiss of Temptation features plenty of witty innuendo, passion, and a hint of mystery.

Fans of paranormal romance will enjoy this racy page-turner featuring a strong, smart heroine and a bad boy turned hero.

Austenland is $1.99 digitally today as an Amazon daily deal. Not sure if price matching faeries will get to this one. This book was a Sizzling Book Club pick, and I listened to the audioversion, which was equally good. If you buy the Kindle sale, you might get an offer for the Audible version at a discount, too – definitely grab it. Excellent narration. Alas, the movie was nowhere near as good as the book.

Jane is a young New York woman who can never seem to find the right man-perhaps because of her secret obsession with Mr. Darcy, as played by Colin Firth in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Predjudice.

When a wealthy relative bequeaths her a trip to an English resort catering to Austen-obsessed women, however, Jane’s fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become more real than she ever could have imagined.

Is this total immersion in a fake Austenland enough to make Jane kick the Austen obsession for good, or could all her dreams actually culminate in a Mr. Darcy of her own?

    For the love of all that is holy, run, don’t walk to get you some 99 cent viking, vampire, Navy SEAL, angel.  You will find yourself completely ignoring your adorable toddler’s swim lesson because, Dude, Sandy has taken cracktastic to the next level- it’s the technicolor stuff.  (can you tell I’ve been reading some Kristin Ashley)

    I’m not ashamed to admit that I purchased First Grave on the Right purely for the shoes.

    DPR you are not alone. Those shoes totally sucked me in. Happily this is a wonderful series.

    Damnit, the Sandra Hill books aren’t on sale for me. I was looking forward to some vamp angel crackalicious fun!

    I think those are like $900 Alexander McQueen sandals. I absolutely covet them, but since I’m not spending $2.99 on a book, I doubt the shoes are in my future.

    Bought Austenland early this morning and am saving it for vacation.

    Not sure on those Viking vampire Navy SEAL angels, but I may end up buying it … Mr. L is wondering what’s up with all the SEAL books. LOL

    I liked first grave on the right so-so. I was ambivalent about it enough that I almost didn’t buy the second in the series… But I am glad I did because I loved it and have now read all of them. And if you like these, the Stacey Justice series is also really good.

    I tried the Viking Vampire Seal Angels a few months ago and the constant homophobic jokes were just too much for me. When the “I’ll pretend I’m gay to get in her pants lol” plot started I was out.

    @Lindsay. Thank you. Thank you. This is something I really can’t stand and have dumped authors for before (e.g., Catherine Coulter, though it wasn’t jokes). So glad not to get started in the first place.

    Woo hoo! I’ve been wanting to try the audiobook of Darynda Jones’ First Grave on the Right… Kindle copy + Audible copy = less than $9 for me. Win! (I love whispersync!)

    On the cover of that vampire viking angel navy SEAL whatever…is he wearing what we, in Britain, would call an ‘old man vest?’  Does he spend his downtime from being a vampire viking angel navy SEAL scratching himself on a sofa, swearing at the TV and letching?  Or is he just all broody and ‘on me, this looks GOOD’…

    We, in the U.S., call that a wife beater.

    I’m sorry, but “vangel” sounds like a feminine hygiene product.  Apply when itching?
