The Duke Heist by Erica Ridley is $1.99! This is book one in a new series and was mentioned on a previous Hide Your Wallet. Elyse was super excited about the heist element, though I remember her mentioning that there’s a malecalico kitten and how that’s rather rare, though not impossible.
How to Fail at Flirting by Denis Williams is $2.99! This is a recent release; it came out in December. It was also featured on a previous Hide Your Wallet. Warning for this one as the heroine has left an abusive relationship and it plays a significant part of the romance, with the heroine working through her trauma.
Mistletoe and Mr. Right by Sarah Morgenthaler is $2.99! This is one of today’s Kindle Daily Deals and is an opposites attract holiday rom-com. I feel like I also need to mention that at one point, the heroine accidentally shoots the hero with a moose tranquilizing dart.
Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts by Kate Racculia is $2.99! This is a price-matched Kindle Daily Deal, which features some romance as well! This one reminded me a lot of The Westing Game and was a ton of fun, if you’re in the mood for light reading that sets a great pace.
RECOMMENDED: A Gentleman Never Keeps Score by Cat Sebastian is $1.99! Carrie read this one and enjoyed it. It was given a B+ grade:
I enjoyed this book so much! A Gentleman Never Keeps Score is a Regency m/m about a disgraced gentleman and a Black pub keeper. The book has a lovely romance as well as a theme of found family and recovery from trauma.
Stripped by Zoey Castile is $2.99! This is the first book in the Happy Endings series. I read this one and gave it a B grade:
Stripped is an uncomplicated romance between two goofy, sexy people. It has a sweetness to it that’s reminiscent of a contemporary friends to lovers trope. If that hits all of your buttons, do read this!
The Most Dangerous Duke in London by Madeline Hunter is $1.99! This is book one in the Decadent Dukes Society series and all three books are on sale. The hero wants revenge and the heroine just wants to go about publishing her women’s journal. Readers like the enemies to lovers aspect of the romance, but others wouldn’t recommend this one on audio as the narrator didn’t fit for them.
RECOMMENDED: Cold-Hearted Rake by Lisa Kleypas is $1.99! This is a Kindle Daily Deal and, the other deals include more romances and some historical fiction. Check them out! Elyse reviewed this one and gave it an A:
Cold-Hearted Rake has the elements that make me love Kleypas so much as a writer: female friendships, a hero who is a rake but somehow also emotionally aware, a setting that’s fully developed and not a backdrop, and scalding sexual tension.
The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by NK Jemisin is $2.99! This is a fantasy novel with a bit of romance and a strong, fierce heroine who is MUCH loved by readers. This book was nominated for the Hugo, the Nebula, and won the Locus for Best First Novel. It’s part of today’s Kindle Daily Deals and is being price-matched. Yay!
Three Weeks with a Princess by Vanessa Kelly is 99c! This historical romance is pretty dang cute and is a friends to lovers romances. I loved how the heroine came from a line of scandalous women. I will admit it was a bit slow to start though. However, it’s a pretty charming book. This is also part of today’s Kindle Daily Deals, which includes other historical romances. Be sure to take a look!
The Dukes of Vauxhall is 99c! This is a historical romance anthology with four novellas. All of the romances take place simultaneously and readers say the authors did a great job keeping the continuity straight. However, with anthologies, not all of the stories are equal in their enjoyment. Have you read this one?
The Highlander’s Princess Bride by Vanessa Kelly is $1.99! This is the third book in the Improper Princesses series and can be read as a standalone. Some readers noticed this book is inspired by Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, if that’s your jam. Others mentioned that the book is rather long and can feel like it at times.
