  • The Lion’s Daughter

    The Lion’s Daughter by Loretta Chase

    The Lion’s Daughter by Loretta Chase is 99c! This is the first book in the Scoundrels series and was originally published in 1992. Some readers found the main characters rather difficult to like. However, others say this is a trademark Chase with a little bit of crazysauce thrown in for good measure. Have you read this one?

    Gorgeous, stubborn Esme Brentmor, daughter of a disgraced lord, is used to a wild, dangerous life among the tribes of Albania, to whom her father is the legendary, controversial Red Lion whose death she’s courageously vowed to avenge –even if it leads to her own. Instead, her quest finds her rescued by the most unlikely (and very reluctant) hero!

    Lazy and spoiled, Lord Varian St. George has gambled away his heritage and lives on his considerable looks, charm and wits. All he wants is the good life, and instead, he finds himself in rough country, with a tempestuous whirlwind of a female who’s as savage as he’s civilized. How did this termagant become his responsibility? And how can he escape?! Yet as he and Esme plunge headlong into even more peril, he may surprise even his own jaded self and become the man that Esme (foolishly) believes he is!

  • The Glassblower

    The Glassblower by Petra Durst-Benning

    RECOMMENDEDThe Glassblower by Petra Durst-Benning is $1.99! This was recommended to Redheadedgirl at our RT Reader Recommendation Party in Atlanta and she gave it a B:

    There are a lot of details of how glassblowing works, and how the village of Lauscha is set up. It’s right on the cusp of a new age for Germany (so, if you’re a nerd like me, you know that the ghosts of World War One are over the horizon), and the role women are playing in society. I think the best stories come from eras of change because of the tension created by that societal change, and this is a good one.

    In the village of Lauscha in Germany, things have been done the same way for centuries. The men blow the glass, and the women decorate and pack it. But when Joost Steinmann passes away unexpectedly one September night, his three daughters must learn to fend for themselves. While feisty Johanna takes a practical approach to looking for work, Ruth follows her heart, aiming to catch the eye of a handsome young villager. But it is dreamy, quiet Marie who has always been the most captivated by the magic—and sparkling possibilities—of the craft of glassblowing. As the spirited sisters work together to forge a brighter future for themselves on their own terms, they learn not only how to thrive in a man’s world, but how to remain true to themselves—and their hearts—in the process.

  • The Duke of Daring

    The Duke of Daring by Darcy Burke

    The Duke of Daring by Darcy Burke is $1.99! This is a historical romance with a heroine who disguises herself as a man. Readers loved how fun this romance was, especially given the hero’s thrill-seeking ways. But some readers found certain aspects of the dialogue a bit too modern for the time. It has a 4-star rating on Goodreads.

    Miss Lucinda Parnell is out of money, a dismal failure at the Marriage Mart, and she’d just as soon leave Society far behind. Desperate to earn funds to retire with her grandmother to the country, Lucy disguises herself as a man to gamble in London’s hells. But the Earl of Dartford, an Untouchable she never imagined speaking to let alone spending time with, is onto her in a trice. When he insists on joining her, Lucy fears her desire to remain an independent woman is destined to go up on flames.

    As a boy, Andrew Wentworth, Earl of Dartford lost his family to illness, leaving him a hollow shell. Obsessed with conquering one adventure after another to fill the bitter holes inside of him, Andrew has set his sights on parachuting. Nothing will stop him from trying to achieve his goal—not the hazard of death and certainly not a woman who’s gotten far too close. Love is the one risk he doesn’t have the heart to dare.

  • Viking’s Prize

    Viking’s Prize by Tanya Anne Crosby

    Viking’s Prize by Tanya Anne Crosby is 99c! Violet eyes alert! This was originally published in 1994 and features the ol’ kidnapping trope. Some readers didn’t like the heroine (chief complaint: she cries a lot), but others loved the interaction between all of the characters. According the the Amazon “Kindle Countdown Deal” timer, this book will jump back up to $4.99 by Monday morning.

    Cursed with the second sight, Elienor of Baume les Nonnes dared not reveal her prophetic dreams for fear of meeting her mother’s fiery end– though in her dreams she spied the Norsemen who would storm Brouillard castle–and she she saw him, the fierce, golden-haired Viking who would claim her as his prize…

    Revenge brought Alarik Trygvason to the shores of the River Seine. Destiny gave him a dark-haired beauty with violet eyes. Beguiled by Elienor’s strange dreams and her fiery spirit he can barely control the passions she arouses, body and soul… but in a land full of strife, he risks everything to love the woman whose dreams hold their future in thrall.
