Bargain Kindle books! (Saturday Mar 16)

Spring is in the air, and so are some great love stories in our Saturday Romance selection. We have ten highly-rated romances at bargain prices for you today. Enjoy!

Midnight Reflections, by Pamela M. Richter. (Still $1.49?)

Let's start today's selection with this full-length romantic suspense from Pamela M. Richter, author of Necromancer. Highly praised and just $1.49!

"Great romance; recommended! The author had a good sense of humor throughout, and you could really feel the pain the Julia went through to try to find a reason and justice for a tragedy in her family. The hero, Robin, wasn't too nice. He was very pragmatic and realistic and knew exactly what he wanted. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants romance with a real story in it." -- Amazon reviewer

What really happens at Midnight?

Julia's midnight reflections actually happened at four in the morning. Tragedy had struck her family. She was far from home, lonely, watching a handsome man sleeping in her bed at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Robin, the handsome sleeping man had put himself in terrible danger so she could solve a mystery. Now she was feeling guilty as well as heart broken.

Robin himself is obsessed by Julia, knowing something besides her attractiveness enchanted him; an illusive mixture of sweetness and intelligence that beckons. He's playing a role, hiding his true identity.

Julia is playing a dangerous role herself, working for a man she believes is a murderer. She also suspects that Robin is much more than the simple man he proclaims himself to be. Can she trust him?

Together they uncover inflammatory information and are forced on the run by a dangerous and angry politician.

Relentless (Shattered Hearts), by Cassia Leo. (Still $0.99?)

This steamy romance is a USA Today bestseller, with over 50 five-star reviews... and just 99 cents today!

"Well-paced and the writing is excellent. The emotions that Claire feels seem so real - they jump off the page, and this can only be attributed to the talent of the author. With the New Adult genre exploding right now, it can sometimes be difficult to find a book that you really feel and that is realistic. This book is a gem!" -- Amazon reviewer

Claire Nixon is a twenty-year-old college dropout with a secret.

To Claire, Adam Parker is just another flirty customer at the cafe, until a chance encounter and seemingly innocent comment spurs a bet between them. The bet is simple: If Adam can get Claire to reveal the secret that made her drop out of college, she has to re-enroll. If he doesn't succeed, she gets to keep her secret and he has to stop stalking her at the cafe.

Claire thinks she has this one in the bag. She's perfected the art of forgetting her past. But she isn't prepared for Adam's relentless pursuit or for him to share his own secrets. And she's definitely not prepared for her rock star ex, and her secret, to come banging down her door one year later.

New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language, drug use, and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

233 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 95 reviews.

Blogging4Romance. . .or how I became anonymously famous, by Barbara Black Fox. (Still $0.99?)

Pronounced "witty" and "beguiling" by readers, this short romantic comedy is a clean and clever read. Bargain-priced at 99 cents.

"Even though I'm much older than the author's target audience, I got a kick out of this book. The tone throughout is light and breezy, full of humor and wit and it's easy to allow yourself to get carried along. Ms. Fox speaks to her readers on their level but she never talks down to them. Instead, I felt as if she were in on the fun and enjoying herself as much as the rest of us. I found myself identifying with and rooting for Claire and Kara in their romantic adventures." -- Amazon reviewer

Claire and Kara are two 16 year old girls who are looking for some romance in their lives. But where can they find it?
“First we do some Internet study. Then we start a blog, so that other girls can learn from our mistakes and duplicate our successes,” Kara continued. “We've got to think of a catchy title.”
“Wait! I don't want anyone to know what I'm doing in case it blows up in my face. I don't really care for public humiliation, Kara.”
“It will be an anonymous blog, Claire. No one will ever know.”
“Um,” I wasn't sure.
“Do you ever want to ever have any romance in your life? You've got to take risks. Trust me here. What is the worst thing that could happen? You might just NOT find romance. How will that be any worse than your life now?”
“All right, I'm in,” and so it began.

100 pages, with a 4.7-star rating from 11 reviews.

Stella and Dane: A Honky Tonk Romance, by Deanna Roy. (Still $2.99?)

"Captivating!" From the versatile Deanna Roy comes this highly-praised love story. A good full-length read, available for $2.99 today.

"This emotional story packs a powerful punch, the passion and intensity of Stella and Dane's love is inspiring and will resonate with you long after the last page has been read." --Jersey Girl Book Reviews

"Stella and Dane was simply a wonderful romance, simple and complex, sweet and hot, pretty much all at the same time." --The Brunette Librarian

A top 500 book for the Kindle, October 2012

Stella is one step from leaving her honky-tonk town when bad-boy Dane roars down Main Street on his prized Harley-Davidson. Despite dreams of living in a big anonymous city, Stella hangs back to have one last crazy romance with this handsome stranger.

Dane is running from his old life -- a dead mom, a clingy ex, and a restlessness that keeps him moving. Stella's willingness to act on his every whim, including getting a little wild on the town's water tower, means that this speed bump in Missouri is what he'll call home, at least for a while.

Their dangerous romance keeps the locals talking, especially some of the punk boys who don't appreciate Dane's attitude with Stella. An altercation in a bar turns deadly, and when Dane is arrested, the couple discovers their love runs deeper than their reputations.

This edgy romance moves from Stella's small town bordering the Ozarks to the famous Missouri State Penitentiary, proving that the best kind of love is the one that endures.

"Stella and Dane is a spellbinding testimony of love's power to carry us through the hardships of life." --Amber Sweetapple, author of Jack and Djinn

237 pages, with a 4.5-star rating from 21 reviews.

Broken: Secrets in Madison Falls, by Rachel Hanna. (Still $2.99?)

This contemporary romance spins a coming-of-age story for Bella Clay, a teen girl with a troubled past.

"Another great Rachel Hanna book! A really sweet story. The lead character Grant was amazing. I thought the epilogue in this book was perfect! I am not a big fan of cliffhangers, so I appreciated the fact that the author wrapped things up with the characters, and I was very happy with the ending. I would absolutely recommend this book." -- Amazon reviewers

This story is a contemporary romance in the New Adult genre.

When twenty-four year old Bella Clay experiences yet another major loss in her life, she is forced to come home and become a young, single mother to her seven year old nephew. No one in the small town of Madison Falls knows just how damaged she is, and they certainly don't know her dirty little secret about where she's been for the last two years.

Grant Brady is the local hunk who works as the elementary school PE and history teacher. When he takes an interest in helping Bella start over in Madison Falls, she tries to push him away afraid that he will find out her dark secrets. What she doesn't know is that Grant has a secret of his own.

Will love prevail or will one or both of them run for the hills out of fear?

This book is a novella, so you can enjoy it in just one day! :)

140 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 25 reviews.

Something Wicked (Mystics & Mayhem), by AJ Myers. (Still $2.99?)

Let's change it up here with this highly-praised paranormal romance from the Mystics and Mayhem series! $2.99 today.

"Something Wicked is alternately funny, suspenseful, scary, creepy, sweet...a roller coaster ride of emotions. It kept me glued to my Kindle, and I lost some sleep to finish it because it was so hard to put down. AJ Myers has a real gift for writing fantastic characters, and also for writing in the teenage voice. The dialog feels real, natural and appropriate for the ages and personalities of the characters." -- Amazon reviewer

Welcome back to the World of Weird! I’m Ember Blaylock, and I’ll be your guide through this treacherous—sometimes downright deadly—world I call my own. Because if you thought our last trek through my reality was a rollercoaster ride, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

I thought I was going to get my life back. I swore off all things witchy. I lied to everyone I cared about. I was even dealing with the nightmares that plagued me every night—souvenirs of my first foray through this not-so-wonderful world of mine. Seriously, if the World of Weird doesn’t leave you with your fair share of issues, nothing will. I really thought I could go back to being a normal senior in high school.

I was so wrong.

Between my doubts about giving my heart to my vampire boyfriend, uncovering a whole new set of secrets and lies, and seeing my old friend Jack every time I turned around, there was nothing ‘normal’ about my life. 

And if that wasn’t enough to keep a girl on her toes, Moonlight, Missouri just got its very own serial killer. A real psycho who seems to think it’s fun to turn his victims into Ember clones—and this creeper isn’t working alone. He’s got help. The witchy kind. Sucks to be me, huh?

And you thought just surviving high school was tough…

276 pages, with a 4.7-star rating from 27 reviews.

Holly and Her Naughty eReader, by Julianne Spencer. (Still $3.99?)

Thirty 5-star reviews for this romantic fantasy, in which a high school English teacher lives out the love stories on her Kindle.

"You know that feeling you get when you're reading a really awesome book and you wish you could just transport yourself inside the story? To experience it as if you were one of the main characters? Well, thanks to a series of hilarious events, our intrepid protagonist Holly gets to do just that. Every time she picks up her beloved Kindle Fire, she literally finds herself inside the books she reads. Talk about a book nerd's dream come true!" -- Amazon reviewer

What if all those brooding teenage vampires, hunky 19th-century aristocrats, and gorgeous dominating billionaires on your Kindle came to life as real people?

Holly Pritchett is a high school English teacher by day, and avid reader by night. Romance, erotica, sci-fi, horror, and more, Holly's Kindle is packed with thousands of titles and she reads a new novel every day.

But when she returns to her hometown for her 10-year reunion and meets up with an old friend who dabbles in witchcraft, Holly's Kindle becomes much more than an eReader. No longer a passive observer to the many stories from the Amazon store, Holly becomes an active participant in the books on her Kindle, living the experiences of the characters.

That hot billionaire with a troubled past? Now it's Holly who's donning the leather and lace so he can teach her how to live. That beautiful werewolf with the heart of gold? Now Holly is the one who will help him find his true self.

For Holly, life with a magic eReader is a dream come true, until one domineering billionaire takes too keen an interest in her, and the fantasies on her Kindle start spilling over into reality.

Part romance, part adventure, and part satire of literary culture in a digital age, Holly and Her Naughty eReader is a novel for anyone who ever got so lost in a good book they forgot where reality ended and fantasy began.

WARNING: Holly and Her Naughty eReader contains intensely steamy scenes with a domineering billionaire who just happens to be a wizard, intensely goofy scenes where Holly stumbles into the body of a horny werewolf, and a cameo from the man who forever changed reading as we know it.

174 pages, with a 4.2-star rating from 54 reviews.

The Raven's Revenge, by Gina Black. (Still $3.99?)

"Sweetly lyrical." "Wicked humor." This much-praised historical romance set in olde England is from author Gina Black.

"A terrific, engaging read, full of adventure and tension and some unexpected, wicked humor..." --Bridget, The Romance Reviews

"A thief, a damsel in distress and plenty of conflict--what more could a reader want?... Black adds sensuality and humor ..." --Romantic Times Magazine

". . . a delightfully satisfying and sexy Restoration romp!" --Lisa Valdez, NYT Bestselling Author

". . . a sweetly lyrical romance that is both compelling and has a strong sense of place. The Raven's Revenge will warm your heart and restore your faith in the power of love." --Claire Delacroix, U.S.A. Today Bestselling Author

England, 1663

When Katherine Welles saves the life of a highwayman, she realizes he may be the only avenue of escape from a betrothal to her villainous neighbor. But traveling under the protection of a dashing outlaw--who won't ask directions--is anything but safe. Especially when his searing hot kisses awaken a yearning for something Katherine never knew she wanted.

Nicholas Montford, the exiled Earl of Ashton, returns to England determined to reclaim his family lands. As a highwayman called the Raven, he takes revenge upon the Puritans who thrived while his family suffered. But when he kidnaps heiress Katherine Welles, thoughts of revenge take second place to kissing her soft lips and teasing the mistrust from her eyes. Can he find redemption in the arms of the woman he plans to betray?

283 pages, with a 3.8-star rating from 21 reviews.

The Gaze, by Javier A. Robayo. (Still $4.99?)

All 4 and 5-star reviews for this full-length dramatic romance.

"I now have another author that I can add to my "favorites" list. Mr. Robayo's first book was an utter joy to read. Imagine a single event in your life, so powerful, that it defines who you are for years to come. Throughout the story, the reader rides on Samantha's coattails of her trials and tribulations, her introspection, and ruminations of who she is suppose to be. Mr. Robayo has the unique gift of storytelling. His character development, dialogue, use of imagery and plot are impeccably orchestrated. It was refreshing to read such fine literature." -- Amazon reviewer

As a sophomore in college Samantha Reddick meets Tony Amaya, a brokenhearted young man, whose written words she keeps as a memento of a weekend long affair. The words, written on the back of a paper placemat, become her only solid ground during a tumultuous decade that nearly destroys her, leaving her searching for answers at the bottom of the bottle.
Haunted by guilt and the constant menace from a man she once loved, Samantha searches for Tony and inserts herself into his life through an online friend request to his wife, Gwen. Mutual curiosity opens the door to an unexpected friendship that becomes the catalyst of an inner battle between the better woman Samantha longs to be, and the Samantha who despises her own gaze.

503 pages, with a 4.9-star rating from 31 reviews.

An Heir of Deception (The Elusive Lords), by Beverley Kendall. (Still $4.99?)

From acclaimed author Beverley Kendall, this historical romance has 30 five-star reviews.

"What drives this surprisingly deep novel are its revelations and their aftermath... Highly recommended for historical romance fans." -- Library Journal, starred review
