Book The Wanderer

RECOMMENDED: The Wanderer by Robyn Carr is $1.99!  It's the first book in her Thunder Point series, which is a blend of small town romance, Friday Night Lights, steamy attraction between protagonists, and a huge cast of interesting characters. Sarah reviewed this book in April and gave it a B-. It's comfort reading, for sure. This would make a terrific gift for someone, too. As of right now, this deal is only available through Amazon, but keep your fingers crossed for some good ol' fashioned price matching!

Nestled on the Oregon Coast is a small town of rocky beaches and rugged charm.

Locals love the land's unspoiled beauty.

Developers see it as a potential gold mine.

When newcomer Hank Cooper learns he's been left an old friend's entire beachfront property, he finds himself with a community's destiny in his hands. Cooper has never been a man to settle in one place, and Thunder Point was supposed to be just another quick stop. But Cooper finds himself getting involved with the town.

And with Sarah Dupre, a woman as complicated as she is beautiful. With the whole town watching for his next move, Cooper has to choose between his old life and a place full of new possibilities. A place that just might be home.

Book Corralled

Corralled by Lorelei James is $3.99! This book is the first in her Blacktop Cowboy series and features a ménage romance on the rodeo circuit, which is oddly reminiscent of her Rough Riders series. Readers thought this was a good start to a new series and it holds a 3.9-star rating on GR. I'm tempted to pick this one up. Are you?

In the rodeo arena, all you have to worry about is surviving. But in the arena of love and ecstasy, things get much more complicated.

Lainie Capshaw has been servicing injured cowboys long enough to know that a charming Western drawl combined with a fine physical form doesn't mean you should fall for a man. As a sports therapist, she travels the rodeo circuits patching up riders – and fending off their sweet-talking, swaggering advances.

So no one is more surprised than Lainie when she finds herself involved with not one, but two different men on different circuits. Hank Lawson, a bullfighter, and Kyle Gilchrist, a bull rider trying to stage a comeback. Lainie feels guilty about her two-timing, but it doesn't keep her from doubling her fun -until Hank catches her with Kyle.

She's shocked that Hank isn't mad. She's more shocked to learn Hank and Kyle are hometown buddies. But when the men offer to share her – she knows that both of them are going to try to win her, body and soul. Now it's up to Lainie to choose the one man who can give her the ride of her life.

    Bite me, indeed. It is back to full price.

    FYI, Archangel’s Shadows by Nalini Singh is currently $5.99 pre-order at Amazon. Considering her most recent book is $10.99, that’s a good deal. Night Shift, an anthology with one of her stories, is also $5.99 for pre-order. That may be a good deal also. I don’t remember what anthologies usually sell for.

    @Terri – Score! Thanks so much!

    I LOVE Laurenston.

    YIPES! It’s almost as bad as Portugal’s final 30 second goal. The free BN nook form is only the first five chapters…

    @Terri—still thanks. Just without the exclamation point.

    “Lainie Capshaw has been servicing injured cowboys”—is she a sports therapist or a sexual surrogate? Inquiring minds want to know.

    If Bite Me is about a honey badger and a grizzly, why is there a beautiful cat on the cover?

    Kiya says:

    Because he is half grizzly and half tiger. There is explanation about this at the beginning of the book.

    Bite Me by Shelly Laurenston rocks. I love that series, wish this wasn’t the last book in the series. Too bad the discount price lasted such a short time.

    I agree with other commenters if you haven’t started the Pride series yet (or really any of Shelly Laurenstons/GA Aikens books) you should they are all fantastic!

    Celia Marsh says:

    WHAT?  That can not possibly be the last book in the series!  There’s at least one more background character set up for their own story (From two books back, or so, the details escape me but it involved a car thief and a lion shifter).

    Also, best typo/freudian slip ever in a review of Corralled on amazon: 

    “Lanie Capshaw, Med Tech extraordinaire is being very naughty seeing two men at the same time. Now, she has not promised monotony to either of them, nor them in return, so although she feels slightly guilty, she is not necessarily doing anything wrong.”

    Celia, it was definitely in her newsletter.

    “After nine books in my Pride series (the ninth book, BITE ME, will be out in 2014), I have decided it is time to take a break. You guys know I love my shifters. Hell, the first book I ever wrote was about my wolves (Oh, Zach. You’ll always be first in my heart). But to keep from getting burned out, I decided to try something else for a bit. I’ve always loved my Crows, but it’s hard to sell a series where the first book has already been through a couple of publishers and came out ages ago. So I pitched something a little different to my publisher but tried to give my readers some more Crows and Ravens, which leads me to…

    I just signed a three-book deal with Kensington for a Crows, Los Angeles series. I’m taking my Crows/Raven mythology that I set up in HUNTING SEASON and moving it to the West Coast. This will be a new set of characters and a completely new storyline.”

    @ Erin


    I love Laurenston’s shifters. (Really everything I’ve read of her’s has been golden, but the Shifterssssss…)

    For those of you who haven’t yet had the pleasure: her characters and their world are so real, and she so nails the animal natures of the shifters (and the regular humans for that matter), that the degree to which they are over the top, just makes everything more compelling. They’re larger than life and soooo funny—on occasion, laugh-out-loud-until-abdominal-pain-ensues funny.

    I guess I just want to Squee, because I really don’t know what to say to convey how wonderful these books are. From the first I’ve been struck by how “on paper” I shouldn’t really like them: I like paranormal and shifters, but “funny” books often don’t do it for me, and the level of violence (which is way high) would normally completely put me off, but both the routine violence and the humor are completely character driven. Also, the characters’ voices are perfect and perfectly true. And everybody is smart and strong—the women, in particular, kick ass!!!

    All right, I’ll stop. But if you haven’t already, check these books out.
