Free and bargain romances in September 2012

Here we are again!

As requested, here is an outline of the purpose of this thread:

We point out free and bargain romances to each other, and occasionally recommend certain books that are/were free (or the opposite!).

Because Kindle freebies are easiest to find, the majority of the books listed are from Amazon, but freebies and bargains from other retailers and in other formats are more than welcome!

Free at Amazon:

The Temptation of Torilla US DE by Barbara Cartland (Eternal Collection #15, thus a reissue). How ridiculous can a heroine's name get? I know straight away I'll be calling her Tortilla when I read the book!

Quote:
The Marquis of Havingham visits his mother in Harrogate to tell her he intends to marry Lady Beryl Fern, the most acclaimed beauty in the Prince Regent’s circle. This should be the happiest day of his life – he is handsome, fabulously wealthy and now about to be a bridegroom. There is only one cloud on the horizon – he is not in love.

Convinced that true love is not worth the heartache, and that marriage to the ‘Incomparable’ Lady Beryl, will work because of their shared interests and position amongst the Beau Monde, only his mother is worried that he may be making a terrible mistake.

For Torilla, the daughter of a clergyman working in the deprived mining village of Barrowfield, the news of the wedding means travelling South to be her cousin, Lady Beryl’s, bridesmaid. Torilla is excited, not only about the wedding, but also the opportunity to return to the genteel parish she and her father left after the tragic death of her mother. For a young woman who has spent time amongst the grime and squalor of the mines, the lavish preparations and generosity of her cousin seem at times almost overwhelming.

But as the wedding draws ever nearer Torilla cannot help wondering how attached the betrothed couple really are to each other. Their relationship is certainly nothing like the perfect soul mates that the cousins used to dream of. Afraid to question her cousin, Torilla unknowingly shares the same concerns as the Marquis’ mother. Can a marriage really work that is based only on convenience?

And as Torilla gets to know the Marquis better she becomes even more convinced that this is not a match made in heaven. But will anyone be brave enough to say something? With her feelings in turmoil and filled with concern for the future happiness of all, Torilla certainly hopes so.

Also free at Amazon:

The Sorcerer's Revenge US DE by Linda Sole, a medieval fantasy novel that is volume 2 in a series.

There is a Linda Sole who has published quite a few books with Severn House, a UK publisher, and, under the name Anne Herries, numerous historical romances with Harlequin / Mills & Boon, but I can't find out if this is the same person.

Quote:
This is the continuing story of Melloria, Nicolas, Robert, Rhoda and the others. A big story of Medieval history and magic. In this book Nicolas begins to use the dark arts to recover his love and wreak revenge on the man who steals her.
Sword of the Raven US DE by Diana Duncan (repeat freebie)

Blossom, you said you already have the bonus books. Have you read them and recommend any? And can anyone tell me what they think of Catherine Mann's books? Thinking of getting Under Fire this month.

The Temptation of Torilla is also free at Amazon UK, but it assumed I meant "tortilla" and gave me recipe books, before I made it redo the search for the word I had typed

I *loved* Barbara Cartland's novels when I was younger, so this will be a real nostalgia trip. Thanks for the tip!

I've got 4 credits left at DANL and basically nothing I really want to use them up on. I'll probably end up getting the two steampunk selections that have been offered thus far, maybe that fantasy elf invasion historical I was waffling over a couple of months back, and pick the most pharmaceutically-enhanced-looking title out of the remaining lot.

I've discovered that even when it's grounded in more-or-less actual history, there's just not enough historical content in most category historical romances to keep me interested (and aargh aargh aargh, they keep getting the actual history wrong if I want to read stock character versions of 20th century minds poorly transplanted into a pseudo-Austen costume drama I can get that free over at the Pit of Voles), so I've given up on that. Give me zany screwball absurdist comedy adventure crack instead. Qualifying recommendations from past months' selections welcome.

And is it just me, or does it look like the DANL member discount on other books is no longer the usual 40% off and something more like 25%?

On the plus side, that Carina Press $1.99 sale historical mystery looks to be a non-romantic one, so I'll probably pick that up. IIRC, their sale books don't stack with the discount coupons.

Catherine Mann is an autobuy for me. She is a harlequin author famous for her Wingmen series. When the super duper Harlequin coupon sale happen during the first of the year I bought all her backlist.

I have not read the bonus books yet. I haven't been in a historical mood yet this year. Carolyn Brown is an author some like and some can't stand. I happen to like Modern Westerns and have yet to read one I hate so I buy her books. I recently made a decision to try and read one sourcebook per month. So maybe that will change. The last one I read was a waste of my money but I know there are better ones out there. If I had to choose only from the bonus I go with Lydia Dare. I have heard sooo many good things about her regency werewolves series. I imagine her historical Vampires are just as good.
