  • Yours Until Dawn

    Yours Until Dawn by Teresa Medeiros

    Yours Until Dawn by Teresa Medeiros is $3.99! This is a standalone historical romance that came out in the early 2000s. It has a blind hero and some Beauty and the Beast elements. Several readers say this book has earned a spot on their keeper shelf. However, there seems to be a “twist” mentioned that readers felt was unnecessary. I bough this one last time it was on sale and I’m on the “keeper shelf” camp.

    Gabriel Fairchild’s valor during battle earns him the reputation of hero, but costs him both his sight and his hope for the future. Abandoned by the fiancée he adored, the man who once walked like a prince among London’s elite secludes himself in his family’s mansion, cursing his way through dark days and darker nights.

    Prim nurse Samantha Wickersham arrives at Fairchild Park to find her new charge behaving more like a beast than a man. Determined to do her duty, she engages the arrogant earl in a battle of both wit and wills. Although he claims she doesn’t possess an ounce of womanly softness, she can feel his heart racing at her slightest touch. As Samantha begins to let the light back into Gabriel’s life and his heart, they both discover that some secrets — and some pleasures — are best explored in the dark…

  • It Started with a Scandal

    It Started with a Scandal by Julie Anne Long

    It Started With a Scandal by Julie Anne Long is $2.49! This is book 10 in the Pennyroyal Green series, which is a superb historical series that mixes small town dynamics with the Regency – and two feuding families that like to score points off one another. Sarah’s read this series and thinks reading them out of order is fine!

    Lord Philippe Lavay once took to the high seas armed with charm as lethal as his sword and a stone-cold conviction: he’ll restore his family’s fortune and honor, no matter the cost. Victory is at last within reach–when a brutal attack snatches it from his grasp and lands him in Pennyroyal Green.

    An afternoon of bliss brings a cascade of consequences for Elise Fountain. Shunned by her family and ousted from a job she loves, survival means a plummet down the social ladder to a position no woman has yet been able to keep: housekeeper to a frighteningly formidable prince.

    The bold and gentle Elise sees past his battered body into Philippe’s barricaded heart…and her innate sensuality ignites his blood. Now a man who thought he could never love and a woman who thought she would never again trust must fight an incendiary passion that could be the ruin of them both.

  • The Magnolia Chronicles

    The Magnolia Chronicles by Kate Canterbary

    The Magnolia Chronicles by Kate Canterbary is 99c! I know some of you are huge Canterbary fans and her books come up often in the comments of Whatcha Reading. Unfortunately, the description of this one is super vague, so I’m unsure of the catnip it may have.

    My mother’s New Year’s resolution for me was simple: make a serious effort at putting myself out there and dating again, and do it for one full year.

    Or until I fell in love. Whichever came first.

    How hard could one year of swipes and matches and awkward first dates be?

    In a word: bad.

    In nine words: bad and also hilarious, demoralizing, exhausting, and ridiculously amusing.

    But the only thing worse than dating in the era of hookup apps and unsolicited dick pics is the absolute whole-life-flail of falling in love.

  • The Missing

    The Missing by Caroline Eriksson

    RECOMMENDEDThe Missing by Caroline Eriksson is 99c at Amazon! This is a psychological thriller that Elyse loved. She wrote a Lighting Review of it because she didn’t want to spoil to much of the plot. It earned an A grade:

    The Missing is a dark, dark book, but a deeply satisfying one. It’s the sort of book I desperately want to talk to someone about–but I have to wait for them to read it first. It’s worth not being spoiled.

    An ordinary outing takes Greta, Alex, and four-year-old Smilla across Sweden’s mythical Lake Malice to a tiny, isolated island. While father and daughter tramp into the trees, Greta stays behind in the boat, lulled into a reverie by the misty, moody lake…only later to discover that the two haven’t returned. Her frantic search proves futile. They’ve disappeared without a trace.

    Greta struggles to understand their eerie vanishing. She desperately needs to call Alex, to be reassured that Smilla is safe, or contact the police. But now her cell phone is missing too. Back at her cottage, she finds it hidden away under the bedsheets. Had she done that? Or had someone else been in the cottage? But who, and why? As Greta struggles to put the pieces together, she fears that her past has come back to torment her, or she’s finally lost her grip on reality…

    In this dark psychological thrill ride—with more twists than a labyrinth and more breathless moments than a roller coaster—Greta must confront what she’s always kept hidden if she has any hope of untangling the truth.

    Yes, I did enjoy The Missing. Some twists and turns. I would recommend and also don’t want to spoil.

    I love Kate Canterbary—she’s really good about getting into the hearts and minds of thirty-somethings who are super-competent in their jobs (her books always feature tons of competence porn) but are still struggling in their romantic lives. THE MAGNOLIA CHRONICLES has a landscape architect heroine who is dating two men (they know about each other, but this is not a ménage romance): a banker and a fireman. I wouldn’t put TMC up there with my favorite Canterbary books like FAR CRY or the Walsh Family books, but it’s still an entertaining read. (Also, iirc, although there’s plenty of foreplay in the book, all sex scenes are “closed door”—which is unusual for Canterbary.)

    This is still kind of spendy for a sale, but the majority of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld books are currently down to $4.99.

    Don’t care for the cover of the Canterbury book. They may have been going for playful pillow fight but it looks more violent to me.

    In “Yours Until Dawn,” does the hero stay blind through the entire book?

    @Varian: Putting things in a spoiler tag for you!

    Show Spoiler
    He does gain some sight back at the end of the book through a medical procedure or treatment, if I recall. It’s not like “love heals him,” but he does recover and the reason why seemed plausible enough to me. However, I know nothing about historical accuracy, especially when it comes to medical details.

    Thanks for the tip on the Canterbary book — it’s not on KU, although the next book in the series is.

    I agree not as good at the Walsh books, but still a decent read.

    I love the Pennyroyal Green books, and I did read them in order. I’m sure you could probably dive in anywhere, but the feud between the families might need some set up? It’s been a while since I read the series, but I know I read them one after the other, very enjoyable.

    I love that Cantarbury cover: such a fun, refreshing change from cartoons and oiled shaved gym rats.

    Another, and I think better, historical romance with a blind hero is an older Signet Regency: Marjorie Farrell’s “Miss Ware’s Refusal”. I think the book is quite poignant as it describes the hero’s fall from handsome, athletic aristocrat, fully confident of himself and his place in the world, to a man who can’t read, can’t cross a room, can’t navigate his world. To see him fall in love, find hope, and reclaim his place in his new world is quite romantic.

    That Julie Ann Long book was one of my favorites in the series. I did read them out of order and you miss some context, but you can figure it out. This book, in particular, does not feature major characters in the feud.

    Yours Until Dawn was my first read of 2020. (And probably one of my favorites so far this year.) If you loved The Duchess Deal, you might enjoy it. I even got my mother to read it. I do ‘kind of’ agree about the ‘reveal’ in the story, though. It was still a fun book for the most part.
