  • Chasing Cassandra

    Chasing Cassandra by Lisa Kleypas

    Chasing Cassandra by Lisa Kleypas is $1.99! Ellen reviewed this one and gave it a C+:

    Overall, even though I did enjoy reading most of this book, I was left feeling kind of lukewarm due to the stalling plot and not quite satisfying romance. I think if you have been reading and liking the series so far there is plenty to like here, especially if you are interested in spending more time with the characters we have already been introduced to.

    Everything has a price…

    Railway magnate Tom Severin is wealthy and powerful enough to satisfy any desire as soon as it arises. Anything—or anyone—is his for the asking. It should be simple to find the perfect wife—and from his first glimpse of Lady Cassandra Ravenel, he’s determined to have her. But the beautiful and quick-witted Cassandra is equally determined to marry for love—the one thing he can’t give.

    Everything except her…

    Severin is the most compelling and attractive man Cassandra has ever met, even if his heart is frozen. But she has no interest in living in the fast-paced world of a ruthless man who always plays to win.

    When a newfound enemy nearly destroys Cassandra’s reputation, Severin seizes the opportunity he’s been waiting for. As always, he gets what he wants—or does he? There’s one lesson Tom Severin has yet to learn from his new bride:

    Never underestimate a Ravenel.

    The chase for Cassandra’s hand may be over. But the chase for her heart has only just begun…

  • The Inheritance

    The Inheritance by Rochelle Alers

    The Inheritance by Rochelle Alers is $1.99 and a Kindle Daily Deal! This contemporary romance is set in New Orleans and features a friends to lovers romance. The heroine is also in her 50s! Some readers described this romance as being very calm and soothing and lovely, while others wished the pace had picked up.

    In bestselling author Rochelle Alers’ passionate, uplifting new series, four friends from very different backgrounds find new beginnings amid the sultry beauty of New Orleans…

    Corporate attorney Hannah DuPont-Lowell always pictured herself returning to New Orleans to retire—just not yet. But after her Manhattan company abruptly lays off its staff, there’s no better place to figure out a next move than the porch of her plantation-style home.

    Nestled in the stunning Garden District, the DuPont House has been in Hannah’s family for two centuries. With its eighteen rooms and two guesthouses, it’s far more home than widowed Hannah needs. Still, it could make a wonderful inn, especially if she can convince her friends and former coworkers Tonya, Jasmine, and Nydia to join in the venture. But in the meantime, Hannah has a high school reunion to attend…

    College Professor St. John McNair, Hannah’s one-time classmate, is still the finest guy in any room. Between Hannah’s willowy, blonde beauty, and his uncanny resemblance to Marvin Gaye, they make a striking pair. And gradually, their rekindled friendship moves toward romance. Still, Hannah is too bruised by her late husband’s infidelities to trust a man again. But her friends’ arrival and encouragement just might show her a path through uncertainty—straight to a vibrant, joyful new life…

  • Blamed

    Blamed by Edie Harris

    RECOMMENDED: Blamed by Edie Harris is 99c! I loved this romantic suspense, especially the part where the heroine thinks the hero is dead and the moment where they reunite. But I will warn you that it’s incredibly violent and there is a loss of a child storyline. I gave it an A-:

    This book was an amazingly pleasant surprise and I lost track of the number of good book noises I made while reading it. I’m still getting my feet wet when it comes to romantic suspense, but I picked a good book to try out.

    Born into a long line of spies, sanctioned killers and covert weapons developers, Beth Faraday carried out her first hit-for-hire when she was still a teenager.

    That part of her life—the American spy royalty part—ended one year ago, with a job gone wrong in Afghanistan. The collateral damage she caused with a single shot was unfathomable and, for Beth, unforgivable. She’s worked hard to build a new life for herself, far away from the family business.

    But someone, somewhere, hasn’t forgotten what Beth did in Kabul. And they want revenge.

    As the Faraday clan bands together to defend Beth and protect their legacy, Beth is forced to flee her new home with the unlikeliest of allies—MI6 agent Raleigh Vick, the only man she’s ever loved. And the one she thought she’d killed in the desert.

  • Better Than People

    Better Than People by Roan Parrish

    Better Than People by Roan Parrish is $1.99! This was included a previous Hide Your Wallet and is a m/m romance, with the added bonus of featuring a cute dog. It’s also the first book in the Garnet Run series, with a second book releasing earlier this year.

    It’s not long before their pet-centric arrangement sparks a person-centric desire…

    Simon Burke has always preferred animals to people. When the countdown to adopting his own dog is unexpectedly put on hold, Simon turns to the PetShare app to find the fluffy TLC he’s been missing. Meeting a grumpy children’s book illustrator who needs a dog walker isn’t easy for the man whose persistent anxiety has colored his whole life, but Jack Matheson’s menagerie is just what Simon needs.

    Four dogs, three cats and counting. Jack’s pack of rescue pets is the only company he needs. But when a bad fall leaves him with a broken leg, Jack is forced to admit he needs help. That the help comes in the form of the most beautiful man he’s ever seen is a complicated, glorious surprise.

    Being with Jack—talking, waking, making out—is a game changer for Simon. And Simon’s company certainly…eases the pain of recovery for Jack. But making a real relationship work once Jack’s cast comes off will mean compromise, understanding and lots of love.

    Varian Ross says:

    I loved the writing in Blamed, but Amanda is right about it being *incredibly* violent. I think I got maybe three chapters in and put it down.

    Darlynne says:

    Rennie Airth’s RIVER OF DARKNESS, the first in his Inspector John Madden series, is on sale at Amazon US for $1.99. Shortly after WWI, a grisly murder terrifies an English village. A female criminal psychologist who works with Madden was a nice surprise considering when the story takes place.

    THE DRAGON MURDER CASE (Philo Vance #7) by S. S. Van Dine is on sale at Amazon US for $1.99 as well. This is 1920-30s New York City, written in the Golden Age of mysteries, featuring a highly-intelligent, astonishingly pompous amateur detective. This will not be to everyone’s taste, but the books were wildly popular when published. I imagine, since it’s been so long that I’ve read them, that the language is antiquated and possibly problematic. If you’re in the mood for something evocative of that time, where everyone spoke in posh accents and lived in hotels (a la The Thin Man movies, not the books), this may be worth a peek.

    I enjoyed the whole Ravenels series, but Chasing Cassandra needs a content warning for fat shaming and sexual assault.

    Annie Kate says:

    Blamed was fun (although echoing Amanda and Varian Ross, it’s REALLY violent, and I never fully warmed to the hero) but I liked the sequel, Ripped, even better. The heroine in that one is a villain in Blamed, and I love that kind of perspective inversion. It’s also $1.99 right now. You do need to read Blamed first to understand what’s happening in Ripped, though.

    Loved Loved Loved the Edie Harris Blood Money series. I just wish the author had finished all the siblings stories. The 3 books were good, but the series was left in a cliff-hanger status and I don’t think the author will be finishing the story. //this makes me sad :-(.

    Rhiannon says:

    I really enjoyed Better than People and the second in the series Best Laid Plans (listened to audio) which further shows the characters from Better than People.

    Just an FYI Sara Maclean’s A Rogue By Any Other Name is a buck ninety-nine today!
