Honey on Your Mind, by Maria Murnane.

For Waverly Bryson, life is anything but boring! And never is that fact more evident than in Maria Murnane’s delightful third novel about the irrepressible heroine. This time around, Waverly faces a game-changing opportunity: an offer to turn her popular advice column into a regular guest spot on the new TV show Love, Wendy. It could be the break of a lifetime—but for a few not-so-minor details. For starters, Waverly’s acceptance of the job means moving clear across the country, giving up her rent-controlled apartment, and leaving behind her best friends McKenna and Andie. Oh, and there’s the fact that TV host extraordinaire Wendy Davenport is none-too-pleased by the prospect of Waverly usurping her broadcast throne. Then there’s Jake, Waverly’s boyfriend. He’s as crazy about her as ever. His mother, on the other hand' Not so much. But Waverly wouldn’t be Waverly if she didn’t tackle these challenges head on, with all the zeal, good humor, and, yes, occasional catastrophe that we’ve come to expect from “the American Bridget Jones.” Witty, light-hearted, and fun, Honey on Your Mind is Waverly Bryson at her best.

Here's today's Daily Romance Deal, available for $0.99 today!

Girl in the Wild, by KB's own Beth Orsoff.

This title was previously published as How I Learned to Love the Walrus
When Los Angeles publicist Sydney Green convinces her boss to let her produce a documentary for the Save the Walrus Foundation, the only thing she is really interested in saving is herself. Sydney sees the walrus as merely a means to improving her career and her love life—and not necessarily in that order. For any other client Sydney would’ve killed the project the second she learned she’d be the one having to spend a month in rural Alaska, but for rising star, and sometimes boyfriend Blake McKinley, no sacrifice is ever too great.
Yet, a funny thing happens on the way to the Arctic. A gregarious walrus pup, a cantankerous scientist, an Australian sex goddess, a Star Wars obsessed six-year-old, and friends and nemeses both past and present rock Sydney Green’s well-ordered world. Soon Sydney is forced to choose between doing what’s easy and doing what’s right.
Beth Orsoff’s Girl in the Wild is a bright, comical tale of ambition, romance…and walruses.

Here's today's Daily Science Fiction/Fantasy Deal, available for $1.99 today!

Brand New Cherry Flavor: A Novel of the Occult, by Todd Grimson.

In the world of Hollywood’s panderers, philanderers, has-beens, and sycophants, aspiring screenwriter and director Lisa Nova considers herself a rising star who can transcend the lies, cheating, and hypocrisy for the sake of her art. When she is coldly betrayed by one leering producer too many, she turns to Boro, the enigmatic leader of a local biker gang, to exact vengeance and she gets more than she bargained for. It begins with the strange tattoos that appear overnight on her skin like stigmata, followed by the hallucinations of ancient cults of the undead. Lisa soon finds herself contending with white jaguars and cannibalistic demons rising from the grave, and the lines between dreams and reality quickly dissolve in this surreal and exhilarating blend of satire and the macabre.

"She wanted to seduce and subvert, jab a needle so irresistibly that they didn't even realize their illusions were being pricked, inflatable dolls collapsing into sad rubber husks." Lisa Nova, a sensual Nastassja Kinski lookalike, once played a naked victim in a splatter movie, but at 26 she's a hungry iconoclastic filmmaker who gets screwed out of an important directing job. She turns to a witch doctor for revenge, and soon bizarre tattoos appear on her body. The magic she impulsively invokes turns out to be more than a specific spell against her nemesis: it's a cascading rearrangement in the forces active around Lisa herself. Todd Grimson's achievement in this unpredictable horror novel is that Lisa's world is not just California flashy, but is believably complex, with all the entanglements of a rich life.

352 pages, with a 3.8-star rating from 10 reviews. Text to Speech, X-Ray, Lending enabled.
