  • Hard Knocks

    Hard Knocks by Ruby Lang

    Hard Knocks by Ruby Lang is $1.99! This contemporary romance has a neurologist heroine and a hockey playing hero. Readers really loved the characterization of the hero and heroine, but some found the heroine a bit cold at times. It has a 3.9-star rating on Goodreads.

    Neurologist Helen Chang Frobisher is on a mission to ban hockey from Portland to prevent the kind of concussive brain injury that plagues her father. Oregon Wolves player Adam Magnus is desperately trying to secure his career and his retirement despite the team’s dismal record.

    But while the two spar in public over the future of a sports franchise on the brink, in private, they battle an impossible attraction. When their no-strings-attached fling turns into the real thing, Helen and Adam must decide what’s really important to them. Will their relationship end up in the penalty box, or are they a winning combination?

  • Against the Tide

    Against the Tide by Elizabeth Camden

    Against the Tide by Elizabeth Camden is $1.99! This book won the 2013 RITA® for Best Inspirational Romance, and was reviewed for the RITA® Reader Challenge by Sassy Outwater, who loved it and gave it an A:

    If you need a break from the usual romance and aren’t afraid of a hard-won happy ending, then go meet Bane and Lydia. I give their love story an A all the way.

    As a child, Lydia Pallas became all too familiar with uncertainty when it came to the future. Now, she’s finally carved out a perfect life for herself–a life of stability and order with no changes, surprises, or chaos of any kind. She adores her apartment overlooking the bustling Boston Harbor, and her skill with languages has landed her a secure position as a translator for the U.S. Navy.

    However, it is her talent for translation that brings her into contact with Alexander Banebridge, or “Bane,” a man who equally attracts and aggravates her. When Bane hires Lydia to translate a seemingly innocuous collection of European documents, she hesitantly agrees, only to discover she is in over her head.

    Just as Bane’s charm begins to win her over, Lydia learns he is driven by a secret campaign against some of the most dangerous criminals on the East Coast, compelled by his faith and his past. Bane forbids any involvement on Lydia’s part, but when the criminals gain the upper hand, it is Lydia on whom he must depend.

  • In His Keeping

    In His Keeping by Maya Banks

    In His Keeping by Maya Banks is $1.99! This is book two of the Slow Burn series, and blends erotic romance, paranormal romance, and suspense. The heroine is psychic, the hero is hired to protect her, and, well, it’s a Maya Banks novel so you can guess how the protection goes, right? This book has a 3.8-star average at Goodreads.

    #1 bestselling author Maya Banks continues her suspenseful and steamy Slow Burn series with this second book—a twisting tale featuring a strong yet vulnerable heroine in danger and the sexy alpha hero who must save her.

    Abandoned as a baby to a young wealthy couple and raised in a world of privilege, Arial has no hint of her past or who she belonged to. Her only link lies in the one thing that sets her apart from everyone else—telekinetic powers. Protected by her adoptive parents and hidden from the public to keep her gift secret, Ari is raised in the lap of luxury, and isolation. That is, until someone begins threatening her life.

    Beau Devereaux is no stranger to the strange. As the head of Deveraux Security, he’s more than familiar with the realities of physic powers. So when a family friend approaches him about protecting his daughter, he’s more than ready to jump on board. What Beau isn’t prepared for is the extent of his attraction to his beautiful and powerful client. What began as a simple assignment, just another job, quickly turns personal as Beau discovers he’ll do anything at all to protect Ari. Even if it costs him his life.

  • A Romantic Duke for Valentine’s Day

    A Romantic Duke for Valentine’s Day by Charlotte Darcy

    A Romance Duke for Valentine’s Day by Charlotte Darcy and Abigail Havisham is 99c! This is a boxed set with six novellas. All of the stories are Regency romances with no sex (I believe). The boxed set features quick romances set on or around Valentine’s Day.

    If you love sweet/clean Regency romance, you owe to yourself to find out why the two last box sets from Charlotte Darcy and Abigail Haversham were #1 Amazon bestsellers.

    Here are the 6 synopses for the stories you’ll find in A Romantic Duke for Valentine’s Day.

    The Secret Valentine. A beautiful, desirable lady pines for love on Valentine’s Day, but none of her suitors impress her. Will a daring duke who becomes her secret admirer be the answer to her prayers?

    The Language of Flowers. A young woman believes in love, flowers and romance on Valentine’s Day. And so does a handsome Duke who attempts to win her heart by giving her the perfect flowers for each step of their courtship.

    The Duke and the Valentine’s Day Heiress. A comely young lady is set to inherit on Valentine’s Day, and she distrusts the motives of the many nobles who wish to court her. Can a dashing duke convince her of his sincerity?

    The Duke Becomes a Poet. A manly but sensitive duke meets a lovely lady whose primary interest is poetry. When she asks him to pen a poem for her for Valentine’s Day, the fate of their courtship rests on his ability to develop his literary talent for her

    The Lady Loves Her Chocolate. When a beautiful lady of lesser rank foals for a romantic duke, he also discovers that she’d never tasted chocolate before. He promptly introduces her to the delights of chocolate, and their courtship revolves around the mutual love of the cocoa bean.

    The Duke Employs a Valentine Writer. During the Regency era, nobles often hired writers to pen poems for their Valentine’s Day cards, which were handmade. In this romantic yarn, a handsome duke tries to find the ideal poet for the card he wants to give to his lady—only to find that the answer to his problem may be in the mirror!

    “When a beautiful lady of lesser rank foals for a romantic Duke…”
    I don’t know why this is making me so happy, but it really is.

  2. Pudge says:

    Thanks for the UK mention, much appreciated.
    I was just thinking its a shame, I get so many great recommendations from this website, but pressing the amazon button takes me to the USA site of course.
    Would love to be able to support you from this side of the pond.

    Kathleen Gilles Seidel’s Again is 99 cents right now – I checked Amazon US and Kobo, so may be general. This was originally published back in 1994, and won a RITA for Best Single Title.

    This is my favorite of her books – the female lead is the creator and head writer of a daytime soap opera set in the Regency, and the male lead is hired in when they recast a duke. The leads are fun, the romance is fine, but I love all the soap stuff happening throughout the plot. I’ve bought this book three times.

  4. M & M says:

    Yay for book deals in the UK!
    The Hating Game by Sally Thorne is now £1.99 on kindle (Amazon UK). I I originally paid £6.99 for it, so that’s quite a bargain! Really enjoyed this book.

    Harlequin My Rewards is offering 2X points on all Harlequin ebook purchases until 2/14/17. If you haven’t signed up for Harlequin My Rewards, I highly recommend checking it out. Especially if you buy a lot of Harlequin/Carina books.

    You earn 100 points for each $1 of the book cover price (not purchase price). The points can be used for free ebooks or print book coupon codes. I’ve earned about 10 free books through their rewards program just for submitting receipts for other books I purchased.

    Potential warning for Against the Tide – personally it was a little too Christian for me, and I didn’t really like it because of that… so if you don’t like your romance with religious overtones I would steer clear.

  7. LZ says:

    One clicked the heck out of “Hard Knocks.” I’m a health professional, and that’s a super nerdy premise. Sounds like a winner.

  8. Lauren says:

    @Lace- “Again” sounds like all kinds of catnip for me! Thanks for sharing!

  9. Carol S says:

    Totally unrelated but must share:
    I hope I didn’t miss a link to it that was already posted.

  10. Caitlin says:

    Carol S., lol, that is a terrific article. One of the reasons I love romances is that the heroes are usually inaccurately (for the era) advanced in their thinking and are quite respectful of their heroines. If they aren’t, I won’t read it. Also they are unusually progressive in their views on LGBTQ folks/people of other races/what have you. It’s a beautiful fantasy that has nothing to do with President Palpatine here.

  11. Cas says:

    I loved Against the Tide!

  12. Lizzy says:

    I know this it’s hard to quantify degree of Christian-ness, but does anyone know how much of a role religion plays in Against the Tide?

  13. Kareni says:

    Well, of course the heroine of Hard Knocks is a bit cold. She’s standing on ice!

  14. MsCellanie says:

    @Carol S.

    I love the article just for this line alone – “And there is no universe in which a Donald Trump billionaire romance novel spins off into a series featuring Newt Gingrich, Rudy Giuliani, and Reince Priebus.”

  15. drewbird says:

    @Lizzy – from what I remember what turned me off was not that religion was brought up here and there, but that it was the reason – and only reason – that many characters redeemed themselves. The H had been raised without morals and doing bad stuff for a bad man, but then he found God, and decided that he had to make up for past deeds. The h was not religious, but read the bible and found God because of the H… and here is a direct quote from the h:
    “I ache inside. I feel pointless. Bane said he was vacant inside before he found God, and I feel vacant too, so I need to keep trying to find God as well. I’ll do anything to stop this ache inside me.”

    So if you are into religion it is probably fine, but the tone and the way religion was used was a little too over-the-top preachy for me.
