  • Fortune’s Pawn

    Fortune’s Pawn by Rachel Bach

    Fortune’s Pawn by Rachel Bach is $2.99! Catch this one as part of today’s Kindle Daily Deals. This is a scifi novel with some strong romantic elements and, in the past, I’ve heard it described as Kate Daniels in space. Many people loved this book and its worldbuilding, though there are a few reviewers who said they never connected with any of the characters.

    Devi Morris isn’t your average mercenary. She has plans. Big ones. And a ton of ambition. It’s a combination that’s going to get her killed one day – but not just yet.
    That is, until she just gets a job on a tiny trade ship with a nasty reputation for surprises. The Glorious Fool isn’t misnamed: it likes to get into trouble, so much so that one year of security work under its captain is equal to five years everywhere else. With odds like that, Devi knows she’s found the perfect way to get the jump on the next part of her Plan. But the Fool doesn’t give up its secrets without a fight, and one year on this ship might be more than even Devi can handle.
    If Sigouney Weaver in Alien met Starbuck in Battlestar Galactica, you’d get Deviana Morris — a hot new mercenary earning her stripes to join an elite fighting force. Until one alien bite throws her whole future into jeopardy.

  • The Devilish Duke

    The Devilish Duke by Maddison Michaels

    The Devilish Duke by Maddison Michaels is 99c! This is the first book in the Saints & Scoundrels series, and the second book is also on sale. This one has a marriage of convenience and the hint of a mystery. Readers really loved the heroine, but found the pacing uneven. It has a 4.1-star rating on Goodreads.

    Devlin Markham, the notorious “Devil Duke” of Huntington, needs a woman. And not just any woman. If he can’t woo one of the most eccentric bluestockings of the Ton within the month, he can kiss his hard-earned fortune goodbye. But he’s always thought love a wasted emotion and marriage an inconvenience at best. And oddly enough, Lady Sophie Wolcott seems unmoved by his charm…

    When Sophie learns her beloved orphanage is in imminent danger, she will do anything to save it. Even marry a ruthless rake who takes what he wants in business and pleasure. A man who’s everything she’s always feared most—but whom she reluctantly begins yearning for.

    Then Sophie becomes the target of a killer lurking from the dark shadows of Devlin’s past. And they find not only their lives in jeopardy but their very hearts.

  • Roomies

    Roomies by Christina Lauren

    Roomies by Christina Lauren is $2.99! Lauren’s books rarely go on sale, so thank you for everyone who alerted us. This is a modern marriage of convenience. Carrie and I had different reading experiences. I liked it, but when positioned against the latest immigration crisis, Carrie found it hard to enjoy. The book is also getting made into a movie (and it seems CLo and the production team are addressing the immigration concerns), and I took the liberty of putting together my dream cast.

    From subway to Broadway to happily ever after. Modern love in all its thrill, hilarity, and uncertainty has never been so compulsively readable as in New York Times and #1 international bestselling author Christina Lauren’s (Beautiful Bastard, Dating You / Hating You) new romance.

    Marriages of convenience are so…inconvenient. 

    Rescued by Calvin McLoughlin from a would-be subway attacker, Holland Bakker pays the brilliant musician back by pulling some of her errand-girl strings and getting him an audition with a bigtime musical director. When the tryout goes better than even Holland could have imagined, Calvin is set for a great entry into Broadway—until he admits his student visa has expired and he’s in the country illegally.

    Holland impulsively offers to wed the Irishman to keep him in New York, her growing infatuation a secret only to him. As their relationship evolves from awkward roommates to besotted lovers, Calvin becomes the darling of Broadway. In the middle of the theatrics and the acting-not-acting, what will it take for Holland and Calvin to realize that they both stopped pretending a long time ago?

  • About That Kiss

    About That Kiss by Jill Shalvis

    About That Kiss by Jill Shalvis is $1.99! This is the fifth book in the Heartbreaker Bay series and has a scavenger hunt element, which I know is some strong catnip. Also, is it just me, or do the hero’s khakis blend in too well? Any time I look at the cover, I have a split second reaction that he’s pantless.

    When love drives you crazy . . .

    When sexy Joe Malone never calls after their explosive kiss, Kylie shoves him out of her mind. Until she needs a favor, and it’s a doozy. Something precious to her has been stolen and there’s only one person with unique finder-and-fixer skills that can help—Joe. It means swallowing her pride and somehow trying to avoid the temptation to throttle him—or seduce him.

    the best thing to do . . .

    No, Joe didn’t call after the kiss. He’s the fun time guy, not the forever guy. And Kylie, after all she’s been through, deserves a good man who will stay. But everything about Kylie makes it damned hard to focus, and though his brain knows what he has to do, his heart isn’t getting the memo.

    … is enjoy the ride.

    As Kylie and Joe go on the scavenger hunt of their lives, they discover surprising things about each other. Now, the best way for them to get over “that kiss” might just be to replace it with a hundred more.

    Don’t usually get a cover snark tucked in with the sale books. Kinda a twofor one Valentines Special. There’s something off with her legs too.

    Rachel Bach/Aaron fangirl squee here for FORTUNE’S PAWN. Devi Morris won my heart forever when she literally kicked another merc’s ass in chapter 2. She wears custom armor, people. In space. I want to be her when I grow up.

    There is also real heartache here and an exquisite example of trust in the third book (I really hope I’m remembering this correctly, apologies if not). So, yeah, buy/borrow this book. Thank you, that is all.

    Roan Parrish’s Invitation to the Blues is on sale for $0.99 today – the first book in this series Small Change blew me away, and Invitation to the Blues is almost as good (they both can be read as standalones). https://books2read.com/u/b6red0

    I liked Fortune’s Pawn and went on to read the series.

    Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Lilia Moon has a box set for the first three books in the Fettered series for 99 cents and the whole series is 50% off! This is a major deal as those ebooks are normally $9.99. Great BDSM romance!

    If anyone is bored — click the link to Amanda’s dreamcast for Roomies, it’s a great read and also there’s a glorious YouTube rabbithole in the comments.

    Several Tituss Burgess and Todrick Hall videos later, I’m feeling optimistic about getting through this long ass day at work.

    Yes. Yes, they do.

    @Leigh Kramer: I bought the set! I mean, it’s cheaper than buying the first book on Kindle. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Chemchik says:

    I really enjoyed Fortune’s Pawn (and everything else by Rachel Bach/Rachel Aaron), but a quick heads-up for the cliffhanger-phobic: the three “Fortune” books are all one extended storyline, so there isn’t a huge amount of resolution at the end of Fortune’s Pawn. Not a true cliffhanger, but enough to make me curse the high price of the other two books. Deviant is great, though. A truly sex-positive heroine!

    Curse you, autocorrect! Deviana, not deviant!

    @MaryK: and not just Shalvis’ hero. The Duke has no pants either.

    And I loved the Bach series.

    i really liked Fortune’s Pawn, but the ending of the trilogy made me very angry, enough that i personally don’t recommend the series to anyone.

  16. 16
    Ren Benton says:

    @gremlin: Thanks. I was on the fence because someone who usually has good recs endorsed it BUT it’s marketed as similar to a series I hate. “Anger-making ending” is enough to validate my nope.

  17. 17
    Darlynne says:

    @gremlin and @Ren Benton: Huh, I’ll have to re-read the third one because my faulty memory tells me I was quite satisfied with the ending. Interesting. @Ren Benton: what series is marketed similarly?

  18. 18
    Ren Benton says:

    @Darlynne: “Kate Daniels in space”

  19. 19
    Darlynne says:

    @Ren Benton: Huh again. Maybe, but no, not really. Ann Aguirre’s GRIMSPACE for sure, in fact I sometimes conflate the two series. If you’re even mildly curious, your library might have at least the first book. Mine did, astonishingly, and that’s where it all started. No pressure.

    Susan D says:

    @Sandra – the devilish duke may look pantless but it’s fun to see a cover with the hero in the classic “bodice sliding off the shoulders” pose.

    Teev says:

    @everybody re FORTUNE’S PAWN: I think this gets compared to Kate Daniels because they both end up on “badass women” lists but they are very different (like Doctor Strange and Logan would both be on a superhero movie list but otherwise have few similarities). I like Ilona Andrews but in classic “the thing that makes you awesome is the thing that makes you suck” fashion, their hyperactive crazypants imagination gives you tons of weird monster, with every page doing the most, but it frequently feels like that kid from The Lego Movie is constructing the narrative and overstuffing it with all the cool but unrelated things they’ve ever thought of.

    The FP trilogy has a heroine with a laser focus on her career, and super competence as a result of tons of training and investing in the best gear. The battle scenes are great – I always knew where everyone was and the moves made sense. The whole trilogy is really well written. For me, the ending was fine. I would definitely reread this at some point.

    What @Teev said. Thank you.

    gremlin says:

    I thought that Devi was awesome. Trying not to get specific, and it’s been over 3 years since I read the series so I don’t remember many details anyway, but the choice(s) Devi makes towards the end seemed completely out of character enough that it spoiled the series for me.

    I did quite enjoy the Heartstrikers series, also by Rachel Bach aka Rachel Aaron.
