  • Bonds of Brass

    Bonds of Brass by Emily Skrutskie

    RECOMMENDED: Bonds of Brass by Emily Skrutskie is $2.99! Ellen read this one and gave it a B+:

    I think it has elements to satisfy a wide reading audience: a sizzling slow-burn romance between people with actual significant obstacles to their relationship, a sweeping and epic plot about the rise and fall of empires, gut-wrenching internal character conflict, and wacky space hijinks.

    A young pilot risks everything to save his best friend–the man he trusts most and might even love–only to learn that he’s secretly the heir to a brutal galactic empire.

    Ettian Nassun’s life was shattered when the merciless Umber Empire invaded. He’s spent seven years putting himself back together under its rule, joining an Umber military academy and becoming the best pilot in his class. Even better, he’s met Gal Veres–his exasperating and infuriatingly enticing roommate who’s made the Academy feel like a new home.

    But when dozens of classmates spring an assassination plot on Gal, a devastating secret comes to light: Gal is the heir to the Umber Empire. Ettian barely manages to save his best friend and flee the compromised Academy unscathed, rattled both that Gal stands to inherit the empire that broke him and that there are still people willing to fight back against Umber rule. As they piece together a way to deliver Gal safely to his throne, Ettian finds himself torn in half by an impossible choice. Does he save the man who’s won his heart and trust that Gal’s goodness could transform the empire? Or does he throw his lot in with the brewing rebellion and fight to take back what’s rightfully theirs?

  • The Widows of Malabar Hill

    The Widows of Malabar Hill by Sujata Massey

    The Widows of Malabar Hill by Sujata Massey is $1.99! This is a mystery set in 1920s Bombay. Carrie read this one and gave it a B:

    It’s not a romance. Romance does not go well for the main characters. However, it’s a very good female-centered historical mystery.

    1920s India: Perveen Mistry, Bombay’s first female lawyer, is investigating a suspicious will on behalf of three Muslim widows living in full purdah when the case takes a turn toward the murderous. The author of the Agatha and Macavity Award-winning Rei Shimura novels brings us an atmospheric new historical mystery with a captivating heroine.
     
    Inspired in part by the woman who made history as India’s first female attorney, The Widows of Malabar Hill is a richly wrought story of multicultural 1920s Bombay as well as the debut of a sharp and promising new sleuth.

    Perveen Mistry, the daughter of a respected Zoroastrian family, has just joined her father’s law firm, becoming one of the first female lawyers in India. Armed with a legal education from Oxford, Perveen also has a tragic personal history that makes women’s legal rights especially important to her.

    Mistry Law has been appointed to execute the will of Mr. Omar Farid, a wealthy Muslim mill owner who has left three widows behind. But as Perveen examines the paperwork, she notices something strange: all three of the wives have signed over their full inheritance to a charity. What will they live on? Perveen is suspicious, especially since one of the widows has signed her form with an X—meaning she probably couldn’t even read the document. The Farid widows live in full purdah—in strict seclusion, never leaving the women’s quarters or speaking to any men. Are they being taken advantage of by an unscrupulous guardian? Perveen tries to investigate, and realizes her instincts were correct when tensions escalate to murder. Now it is her responsibility to figure out what really happened on Malabar Hill, and to ensure that no innocent women or children are
    in further danger.

  • The Proposal

    The Proposal by Jasmine Guillory

    The Proposal by Jasmine Guillory is $1.99! I don’t think we’ve featured this one on sale before, so grab it while you can. Speaking to other romance readers, I feel like a lot of those I know liked this one more than The Wedding Date. What do you think?

    From the author of The Wedding Date comes a new novel about the perils of public proposals and the beauty of an unexpected second chance.

    When Nik Paterson went to the Dodgers game with her C-list actor boyfriend, Ford, for his birthday, she expected nothing more than a few boring hours with him and his bros. She certainly didn’t expect a Jumbotron proposal. Or her name to be misspelled. Or to go viral in minutes…

    Carlos Ibarra wants to hang out with his sister, catch a Dodgers game, and relax for once. But when a camera crew descends on Nik after the disastrous proposal, he has to rescue her. After they flee the stadium, he delivers her into the arms of her supportive girlfriends, and they both think they’ll never see each other again.

    Fate has other plans. Nik and Carlos keep crossing paths, accidentally and on purpose. When they finally give in to their attraction to each other, they are on the same page: sex and nothing more. But the proposed friends-with-benefits relationship is turning into something more, and the pair have to decide if they have room in their lives for love.

  • Fated

    Fated by Rebecca Zanetti

    Fated by Rebecca Zanetti is $2.99! This is a paranormal romance with what seems to be a marriage of convenience trope. Some readers thought the plot was a but over the top, while others said they couldn’t put this one down. It’s the first book in the Dark Protectors series and has a 3.9-star rating on Goodreads. If you’re looking to collect the series, a couple others are also on sale.

    Marry Me

    Cara Paulsen does not give up easily. A scientist and a single mother, she’s used to fighting for what she wants, keeping a cool head, and doing whatever it takes to protect her daughter Janie. But “whatever it takes” has never before included a shotgun wedding to a dangerous-looking stranger with an attitude problem…

    Or Else

    Sure, the mysterious Talen says that he’s there to protect Cara and Janie. He also says that he’s a three-hundred-year-old vampire. Of course, the way he touches her, Cara might actually believe he’s had that long to practice…

    Amazon has an Elizabeth Cadell book, The Corner Shop, for .99. I’ve been meaning to try her so I bought it.

    I’m one of the people who preferred The Proposal! Although I enjoyed The Wedding Date, I just couldn’t get over the blatant HIPAA violations [I’m a healthcare provider]. Either she did no research at all or conveniently side-stepped it for a plot point that I didn’t care for.

    The Proposal is one of my all time favorite contemp romances, so it tops The Wedding Date for me.

    Widows of Malabar Hill was excellent, it was a perfect quarantine read for me because it was so descriptive of the culture and life for Perveen in Bombay that it really took me away for a few days.

    The second book, The Satapur Moonstone, is also terrific and does hint toward a slow burn romance over additional books. I highly recommend both of them!

    Camilla Monk’s Spotless series boxed set (books 1-4.5) is on sale for 99 cents. Someone here had recommended the first book way back and I glommed onto the series. Lots of fun.

    I’m with Anna C – the Wedding Date was great fun, until it was ruined by the gross (especially given the pediatric setting) health confidentiality violations. Damn shame. But that means I’m grabbing the Proposal now!

    Widows of Malabar Hill was great, as was Satapur Moonstone. I also recommend these books!
