Along Came Trouble
Along Came Trouble by Ruthie Knox is $1.99! This is the second book in the Camelot contemporary romance series and was part of a previous RITA Reader Challenge.
Reader PamG. gave it a B+: I would highly recommend Along Came Trouble to anyone looking for a contemporary romance with likeable, realistic characters who actually talk to each other like intelligent adults and who grow into a mature committed relationship.
And Reader KellyM gave it an A-: It’s messy and imperfect, and that’s what makes it wonderful.
Ruthie Knox’s Camelot series continues in this sizzling eBook original novel, featuring two headstrong souls who bump heads—and bodies—as temptation and lust bring nothing but delicious trouble.
An accomplished lawyer and driven single mother, Ellen Callahan isn’t looking for any help. She’s doing just fine on her own. So Ellen’s more than a little peeved when her brother, an international pop star, hires a security guard to protect her from a prying press that will stop at nothing to dig up dirt on him. But when the tanned and toned Caleb Clark shows up at her door, Ellen might just have to plead the fifth.
Back home after a deployment in Iraq and looking for work as a civilian, Caleb signs on as Ellen’s bodyguard. After combat in the hot desert sun, this job should be a breeze. But guarding the willful beauty is harder than he imagined—and Caleb can’t resist the temptation to mix business with pleasure. With their desires growing more undeniable by the day, Ellen and Caleb give in to an evening of steamy passion. But will they ever be able to share more than just a one-night stand?
Creatures of Will and Temper
PODCAST RECOMMENDED: Creatures of Will and Temper by Molly Tanzer is $2.99! This is a Kindle Daily Deal and is being price-matches. Author Heather Rose Jones recommended this on a previous podcast episode. I definitely bought this one at my local bookstore based on the rec.
“A delightful, dark, and entertaining romp . . . Molly Tanzer is at the top of her form in this beautifully constructed novel.”—Jeff VanderMeer, best-selling author of the Southern Reach trilogy
Victorian London is a place of fluid social roles, vibrant arts culture, fin-de-siècle wonders . . . and dangerous underground diabolic cults. Fencer Evadne Gray cares for none of the former and knows nothing of the latter when she’s sent to London to chaperone her younger sister, aspiring art critic Dorina.
At loose ends after Dorina becomes enamored with their uncle’s friend, Lady Henrietta “Henry” Wotton, a local aristocrat and aesthete, Evadne enrolls in a fencing school. There, she meets George Cantrell, an experienced fencing master like she’s always dreamed of studying under. But soon, George shows her something more than fancy footwork—he reveals to Evadne a secret, hidden world of devilish demons and their obedient servants.
George has dedicated himself to eradicating demons and diabolists alike, and now he needs Evadne’s help. But as she learns more, Evadne begins to believe that Lady Henry might actually be a diabolist . . . and even worse, she suspects Dorina might have become one too.
Combining swordplay, the supernatural, and Victorian high society, Creatures of Will and Temper reveals a familiar but strange London in a riff on Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray that readers won’t soon forget.
A Match Made for Thanksgiving
A Match Made for Thanksgiving by Jackie Lau is available to preorder for $2.99! This is the first book in the Holidays with the Wongs series and will be released October 8th. I’m not a huge holiday romance fan, but the fact that it’s Thanksgiving and not Christmas definitely appeals to me.
Advertising executive Nick Wong loves living in Toronto. He loves late nights partying and taking women back to his penthouse. And so it is with great reluctance that he returns to his boring hometown of Mosquito Bay for Thanksgiving.
This year, however, is even worse than usual. His interfering parents and grandparents, frustrated with the lack of weddings in the family, have invited blind dates for him and his three siblings. Nick’s brother Greg has been set up with Lily Tseng, who just so happens to be Nick’s latest one-night stand, the one he can’t get out of his mind.
Although Nick has never been interested in settling down, Lily has him reconsidering. If only he can get through this painful weekend with his family and convince her that she should be with him, not Greg, and that he’s good for more than just a single night of sex, dumplings, and bubble tea…
Stealing Mr. Right
Stealing Mr. Right by Tamara Morgan is 99c! This is a romance between a jewel thief and an FBI agent. The book is told through the heroine’s POV and some reader’s wanted more romance between the hero and heroine, but readers say the banter is great. You can grab all three books in the series for less than $6!
“A sexy, fun, cat-and-mouse chase that hooked me from page one!” –Jennifer Probst, New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author of The Marriage Bargain
I’m a wanted jewel thief.
What’s that saying? Keep your friends close…and your husband closer.
Being married to a federal agent certainly has its perks.
1. I just love the way that man looks in a suit.
2. This way I always know what the enemy is up to.
Spending my days lifting jewels and my nights tracking the Bureau should have been a genius plan. But the closer I get to Grant Emerson, the more dangerous this feels. With two million dollars’ worth of diamonds on the line, I can’t afford to fall for my own husband.
It turns out that the only thing worse than having a mortal enemy is being married to one. Because in our game of theft and seduction, only one of us will come out on top.
Good thing a cat burglar always lands on her feet.
