  • A Delicate Deception

    A Delicate Deception by Cat Sebastian

    RECOMMENDED: A Delicate Deception by Cat Sebastian is $1.99! Ellen absolutely loved this one and gave it an A-:

    Overall, I do not have much more to say about this book except that it is wonderful. It made me feel many feelings and think many thoughts about how people relate to each other. If I could get you all copies, Oprah-style, I would.

    When Amelia Allenby escaped a stifling London ballroom for the quiet solitude of the Derbyshire countryside, the very last thing she wanted was an extremely large, if—she grudgingly admits—passably attractive man disturbing her daily walks. Lecturing the surveyor about property rights doesn’t work and, somehow, he has soon charmed his way into lemon cakes, long walks, and dangerously heady kisses.

    The very last place Sydney wished to be was in the shadow of the ruins of Pelham Hall, the inherited property that stole everything from him. But as he awaits his old friend, the Duke of Hereford, he finds himself increasingly captivated by the maddeningly lovely and exceptionally odd Amelia. He quickly finds that keeping his ownership of Pelham Hall a secret is as impossible as keeping himself from falling in love with her.

    But when the Duke of Hereford arrives, Sydney’s ruse is revealed and what started out as a delicate deception has become a love too powerful to ignore. Will they let a lifetime of hurt come between them or can these two lost souls find love and peace in each other?

  • A Spark of White Fire

    A Spark of White Fire by Sangu Mandanna

    A Spark of White Fire by Sangu Mandanna is $1.99! Aarya really loves this series and reviewed the second book, though they can’t be read out of order. It’s YA fantasy and comes super highly recommended! Have you read it?

    In a universe of Gods and Goddesses, moons that hide ancient beasts, and cities built on the back of spaceships, infant Princess Esmae was cast into deep space, surviving only by the grace of a Goddess.

    Raised far away from her birth home of Kali, Esme longs to return to her real family. And when the King of Wychstar issues a challenge, offering to gift his unbeatable, sentient warship, Titania, to a warrior that can win his competition, the way home becomes clear: she’ll help her brother, Prince Alexi, win the ship and consequently, win her place back in the arms of her family.

    But when Alexi rejects, she instead enters as the champion of Max, who banished Alexi’s family from their ancestral home, waging a war that pits cousin against cousin.

    And she does the unthinkable. She wins.

    Now, Esmae finds herself on the wrong side of an inevitable war, with the Goddess-blessed Titania in the hands of her family’s enemies. Will she be able to reunite with her brother and learn why the queen banished her? Or will her family literally destroy itself, with the weapons she gave them?

    Drawing on Indian mythology including the Mahabharata, A Spark of White Fire is a sweeping young adult sci-fi/fantasy retelling that stretches across the universe exploring love, friendship, and the complicated ties that bind families together, and rip them apart, in a world where Gods and Goddesses keep an eye on the stars . . . and the people they favor that fight among them.

  • The Victory Garden

    The Victory Garden by Rhys Bowen

    The Victory Garden by Rhys Bowen is $1.99 at Amazon! Fans of Bowen, do not expect a mystery here. This is definitely more historical fiction than anything. Readers say it’s an emotional story of grief healing. However, I’m personally tapped out on WWI and WWII historical fiction.

    From the bestselling author of The Tuscan Child comes a beautiful and heart-rending novel of a woman’s love and sacrifice during the First World War.

    As the Great War continues to take its toll, headstrong twenty-one-year-old Emily Bryce is determined to contribute to the war effort. She is convinced by a cheeky and handsome Australian pilot that she can do more, and it is not long before she falls in love with him and accepts his proposal of marriage.

    When he is sent back to the front, Emily volunteers as a “land girl,” tending to the neglected grounds of a large Devonshire estate. It’s here that Emily discovers the long-forgotten journals of a medicine woman who devoted her life to her herbal garden. The journals inspire Emily, and in the wake of devastating news, they are her saving grace. Emily’s lover has not only died a hero but has left her terrified—and with child. Since no one knows that Emily was never married, she adopts the charade of a war widow.

    As Emily learns more about the volatile power of healing with herbs, the found journals will bring her to the brink of disaster, but may open a path to her destiny.

  • The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook

    The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman

    RECOMMENDED: The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman is $1.99! I own and love this cookbook, as well as Smitten Kitchen Every Day. I also highly recommend the Smitten Kitchen website. You can search recipes by ingredient, which has been super helpful in getting creative with my pantry!

    The long-awaited cookbook by Deb Perelman of Smitten Kitchen—home cook, mom, photographer, and celebrated food blogger.

    Deb Perelman loves to cook. It’s as simple as that. She isn’t a chef or a restaurant owner—she’s never even waitressed. Cooking in her tiny Manhattan kitchen was, at least at first, for special occasions—and, too often, an unnecessarily daunting venture. Deb found herself overwhelmed by the number of recipes available to her. Have you ever searched for the perfect birthday cake on Google? You’ll get more than three million results. How do you choose? Where do you start? What if you pick a recipe that’s downright bad?

    Deb is a firm believer that there are no bad cooks, just bad recipes. She has dedicated herself to finding the best of the best and adapting them for the everyday cook—the ones with little time to spare, little money to burn on unpronounceable ingredients, and little help in the kitchen. And now, with the same warmth, candor, and can-do spirit her blog is known for, Deb presents her first cookbook—more than 100 new recipes, plus a few favorites from her site, all gorgeously illustrated with hundreds of Deb’s beautiful color photographs.

    The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook is all about approachable, uncompromised home cooking: stepped-up comfort foods, stewy dishes for windy winter afternoons, an apple cake that will answer all questions: “What should my new signature dessert be?” “What is always welcome at a potluck?” “What did Deb consume almost single-handedly a week after having a baby?” These are the recipes you bookmark and use so often they become your own; recipes you slip to a friend who wants to impress her new in-laws; and recipes with simple ingredients that yield amazing results in a minimum amount of time. Deb tells you how to host a brunch and still sleep in—plus what to make for it!—and the essential items you need for your own kitchen. From salads and slaws that make perfect side dishes (or a full meal) to savory tarts and pizzas; from Mushroom Bourguignon to Pancetta, White Bean and Swiss Chard Pot Pies; from Buttered Popcorn Cookies to Chocolate Hazelnut Layer Cake, Deb knows just the thing for a Tuesday night, or your most special occasion.

    I purchased A Spark of White Fire more than a year ago. And I thought I was making headway on my digital TBR.

    A very minor quibble – weren’t Victory Gardens and Land Girls a WWII thing, rather than the “Great War” (WWI)?

    The Sebastian and the cookbook are both wonderful; own both an can attest to that!

    The fourth book in Ilona Andrews’ Innkeeper Chronicles, Sweep of the Blade, is a 99 cent Kindle Daily Deal today. It’s a bit of a spin-off from the main series plot, but it’s probably best to start with book one. The previous book really sets up the romance in this one.

    Hey all, there’s a challenge out for readers to buy any two books by black authors this week (June 14 – June 20 (Saturday)). Could we get a post going to discuss and recommend??

    Just glancing through B+N’s 2.99 or under section, I see Kai Ashante Wilson’s “A Taste of Honey” and Anissa Gray’s “The Care and Feeding of Ravenously Hungry Girls.” Has anybody read these?

    Let’s help make this week a win for Black authors and publishers 🙂

    I know that there were Victory Gardens planted in the US during the First World War (and I believe also Canada) – don’t know about Britain.

    And there were indeed Land Girls in the First World War – the Women’s Land Army was formed by the Board of Agriculture in 1915.

    Star says:

    @snackleton – A Taste of Honey is beautiful, brilliant, and brutal. I absolutely recommend it, but be prepared to have your heart ripped out. It does have something I would call a HEA. His first book, Sorceror of the Wildeeps, is similarly beautiful, brilliant, and brutal, and very much does not have a HEA. I also recommend it, but if you want a HEA, be aware that you won’t get one.

    Wilson’s work is more literary than I typically prefer, but it’s so emotionally powerful that I make an exception for him. Both books made me feel like I’d died, but in a good way. They’re also not quite like anything else I’ve ever read.

    Cleo says:

    @snackleton – thanks for posting that, I’d somehow missed it.

    FWIW, my current favorite romance authors who are Black are Alyssa Cole (historicals and pnr, mostly mf with a couple ff and at least one mm), Rebekah Weatherspoon (queer romance – both mf and ff) and Riley Hart (mm).
