  • The Courtesan Duchess

    The Courtesan Duchess by Joanna Shupe

    RECOMMENDEDThe Courtesan Duchess by Joanna Shupe is $1.99! This is a historical romance where the couple is married, but estranged. This series has been favorably mentioned and reviewed on the site and I believe the next book (this is the first one) is also on sale!

    How to seduce an estranged husband—and banish debt!—in four wickedly improper, shockingly pleasurable steps…

    1. Learn the most intimate secrets of London’s leading courtesan.
    2. Pretend to be a courtesan yourself, using the name Juliet Leighton.
    3. Travel to Venice and locate said husband.
    4. Seduce husband, conceive an heir, and voilà, your future is secure!

    For Julia, the Duchess of Colton, such a ruse promises to be foolproof. After all, her husband has not bothered to lay eyes on her in eight years, since their hasty wedding day when she was only sixteen. But what begins as a tempestuous flirtation escalates into full-blown passion—and the feeling is mutual. Could the man the Courtesan Duchess married actually turn out to be the love of her life?

  • Monster, She Wrote

    Monster, She Wrote by Lisa Kroger

    RECOMMENDED: Monster She Wrote by Lisa Kröger and Melanie R. Anderson is $2.59 at Amazon and $2.99 elsewhere! Carrie loved this one and gave it an A:

    I can’t emphasize enough how well this collection hits the sweet spot of fun (Quotes! Illustrations! Anecdotes! Humor!) and informative. I will be using this book as a resource frequently.

    Meet the women writers who defied convention to craft some of literature’s strangest tales, from Frankenstein to The Haunting of Hill House and beyond.

    Frankenstein was just the beginning: horror stories and other weird fiction wouldn’t exist without the women who created it. From Gothic ghost stories to psychological horror to science fiction, women have been primary architects of speculative literature of all sorts. And their own life stories are as intriguing as their fiction. Everyone knows about Mary Shelley, creator of Frankenstein, who was rumored to keep her late husband’s heart in her desk drawer. But have you heard of Margaret “Mad Madge” Cavendish, who wrote a science-fiction epic 150 years earlier (and liked to wear topless gowns to the theater)? If you know the astounding work of Shirley Jackson, whose novel The Haunting of Hill House was reinvented as a Netflix series, then try the psychological hauntings of Violet Paget, who was openly involved in long-term romantic relationships with women in the Victorian era. You’ll meet celebrated icons (Ann Radcliffe, V. C. Andrews), forgotten wordsmiths (Eli Colter, Ruby Jean Jensen), and today’s vanguard (Helen Oyeyemi). Curated reading lists point you to their most spine-chilling tales.

    Part biography, part reader’s guide, the engaging write-ups and detailed reading lists will introduce you to more than a hundred authors and over two hundred of their mysterious and spooky novels, novellas, and stories.

  • The Unlikeable Demon Hunter

    The Unlikeable Demon Hunter by Deborah Wilde

    PODCAST RECOMMENDED: The Unlikeable Demon Hunter by Deborah Wilde is $1.99 at Amazon! Thien-Kim Lam recommended this book on a previous podcast episode and said it was really fun. If you’re a fan of Buffy, you might want to check this one out.

    Bridesmaids meets Buffy with a dash of the seven deadly sins.

    The age-old story of what happens when a foul-mouthed, romance impaired heroine with no edit button and a predilection for hot sex is faced with her worst nightmare–a purpose.

    Ari Katz is intelligent, driven, and will make an excellent demon hunter once initiated into the Brotherhood of David. However, this book is about his twin Nava: a smart-ass, self-cultivated hot mess, who is thrilled her brother is stuck with all the chosen one crap.

    When Nava half-drunkenly interrupts Ari’s induction ceremony, she expects to be chastised. What she doesn’t expect is to take her brother’s place among the–until now–all-male demon hunters. Even worse? Her infuriating leader is former rock star Rohan Mitra.

    Too bad Rohan’s exactly what Nava’s always wanted: the perfect bad boy fling with no strings attached, because he may also be the one to bring down her carefully erected emotional shields. That’s as dangerous as all the evil fiends vying for the bragging rights of killing the only female ever chosen for Demon Club.

    Odds of survival: eh.

    Odds of having a very good time with Rohan before she bites it: much better.

  • 69 Million Things I Hate About You

    69 Million Things I Hate About You by Kira Archer

    69 Million Things I Hate About You by Kira Archer is 99c! It also looks like the next couple books in the series are available at this price. This is a contemporary workplace romance with an enemies to lovers trope. The heroine is determined to make her boss’ life miserable after winning the lottery. Some readers feel the romance wasn’t as strong as it could have been, while others loved the banter.

    After personal assistant Kiersten Abbott wins sixty-nine million dollars in the lotto, she suddenly has more than enough money to quit her impossibly demanding job. But where’s the fun in that? She decides to stay and exact a little revenge on her insufferable ass of a boss.

    Billionaire Cole Harrington quickly figures out something’s afoot with his usually agreeable personal assistant. When he finds out about the office pool betting on how long it’ll take him to fire her, he decides to spice things up and see how far he can push her until she quits.

    The game is on, with everyone waiting to see who will crack first. But the bet sparks a new dynamic between them, and soon they realize they just might have crossed that fine line between hate and love.

    I thought 69MTIHAY was a lot of fun while they were sniping at each other, which was most of the book, fortunately. The “romance” was crammed into the last third or quarter of the book, was mostly sex in various locations, and lasted about 48 hours before they broke up for some feeble reason so they could reconcile on the last two pages (or whatever). I think I’ve commented previously that it’s much more like a romantic comedy movie than a romance novel.

    Mia Sheridan’s ARCHER’S VOICE, which features a virgin hero who has form of mutism (I’m not sure if he is also deaf), is a KDD for $1.99 today. It’s not one of Sheridan’s KU books and I haven’t seen it on sale before, so I snapped it up.

    Nava in THE UNLIKEABLE DEMON HUNTER was actually kind of unlikeable. I enjoyed the book and should probably reexamine why I struggled with her since it’s been a while.

    BTW: Why is “unlikeable” showing up as misspelled? Because “unlikable” is preferred in US English; the author has it both ways on her website (OCD-me had to check). But now “unlikable” looks too much like “unlickable” and that, too, is not in spellcheck. This is not where I planned on getting sidetracked today.

    @DDD: You’ve read other Sheridan books, right? I did not care at all for how the virgin hero was treated by whoever the heroine was. That was it for me with this author. YMMV

    I really loathed ‘The Courtesan Duchess’, which surprised me because I’ve loved other works by this author. Honestly, I am so over the trope where the hero deflowers the heroine but doesn’t realize he did it, and then he thinks she’s a hussy because how could she respond like that if she was a true virgin, but WAIT she WAS and now he’s sorry and he LOVES HER! I feel as if I saw it a lot in romances from a decade or two ago, and this just seems to be an update.

    There was definitely insufficient groveling on the part of the hero.

    @Tam – OMG, I agree with you so hard! The HEA of that book just choked me. I hated the “hero” so much, and I really just wanted the poor heroine to dump him on his stupid ducal ass. He was completely horrible to her (from before the story even opened!), had all the power in their relationship, and never ever apologised sufficiently. She deserved so much better in life.

    All the warnings for intense slut-shaming, solved by belated retrospective virginity-ex-machina nonsense.

    @Darlynne: I’ve enjoyed the Sheridan books I’ve read so far, especially DANE’S STORM (which is on my Favorite Books of 2020 list, although it was published in a prior year) and SAVAGED. Her books are angsty, but that’s totally in my wheelhouse.

    I really liked the Unlikable Demon Hunter. Nava was snarky but quite funny, and I think she grew up some over the course of the book/early series.

    Another vote against The Courtesan Duchess, for all the reasons already mentioned. Not enough grovel in the world to redeem the hero.

    The second book in Shoupe’s Wicked Deceptions trilogy was not on sale, but the third one was, so I was okay with buying all the books. Her Knickerbocker Club books are each on sale for $1.99 right now as well.

    I gave 69MTIHAY (that acronym is the best) a try because I usually Do Not Enjoy billionaire romance and I was really interested by the trope inversion of the heroine herself being independently wealthy, and how that would change the power dynamic. Despite that, it read a lot like a traditional billionaire romance. The heroine was a snarky delight, the hero was a personification of my criticisms of current American tax law, and that made it rather hard for me to get invested in the romance. Also, the issue of him being a jerk to his employees was never really addressed on a level beyond his relationship with the heroine, so if you’re in this (as I was) for the character growth arc of a wealthy man realizing he cannot treat everyone in his employ like garbage, you will sadly not find it here.

    It was really funny at points so it’s not like I regret using the Hoopla borrow, and if you *do* like billionaire romance I’d recommend it! It’s just not what I was hoping for, from the description.

    Thanks for the heads’ up about the Courtesan Duchess. I DEFINITELY will have a problem with not enough grovel.

    Speaking of non-jerk heroes, Unveiled by Courtney Milan is also on sale.
