Free and bargain romances in October 2012

Wishing all of you a nice October with lots of autumn sunshine!

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!

In case no retailer is specifically mentioned in a post, it is safe to assume it's for Amazon US.

Midnight Marriage by Lucinda Brant

Quote:
Set in the opulent world of the 18th century aristocracy and inspired by real events, Midnight Marriage is the standalone second book in the acclaimed Roxton family saga.

Two noble teenagers are married against their will. Drugged, Deb has no recollection of events. Disgraced, Julian is banished to the Continent. Nine years later, Deb falls in love with a wounded duelist, only to later discover it is her husband returned incognito! Can Deb forgive his cruel deception? Can their marriage survive beyond seduction? Meanwhile, Julian’s nemesis plots to destroy them both…

With witty prose and a deft palette of historical detail, Lucinda Brant delivers another lavish 18th century experience in her trademark style: Heart-wrenching drama with a happy ending.

Here's a freebie from Medallion Press with the most anti-romance cover I may have ever seen.

Blaze of Lightning, Roar of Thunder by Helen A. Rosburg Kindle | B&N

Quote:
Louisa Rodriguez is in the desert gathering fuel when the scalp hunters come, massacre her family and all the people of her village, shoot her, and leave her for dead. After regaining consciousness, she buries the people she loves, strips off her bloody clothes, and walks naked into the mountains, where she sheds all traces of her former identity—except for the hatred she feels towards the scalpers. In the western wilderness, she meets horse wrangler Ring Crossman, who names her Blaze and falls in love with her, knowing that all her heart seeks is revenge. When their path crosses with the vengeful Bane, a destructive storm consumes them all.

Kindle Freebie

A Man Called Blue by E.C. Sheedy aka Carole Dean (previously published by Zebra in 1997)

Quote:
Simone Doucet, a woman caught between her own ambition and loyalty to her boss, her ruthless mother, is determined to prove herself during a critical business trip to London. That means staying focused, efficient, and predatory.

But when a last minute staff change places a man called Blue at the hatch of her private jet moments before she's scheduled for takeoff, Simone's focus starts to blur.

Thomas Bludell opted out of the corporate game years ago. He knows how it plays, knows the rules—or lack of them—and doesn't want any part of it. This trip to London, and taking orders from a female corporate shark, is a favor to a friend nothing more.

Trouble is Blue isn't good at taking orders.

What Blue is good at is seduction.

Did anyone else renew their DANL membership? My credits only increased by 1 rather than 6. Wondering if I should email them or if I have to use the initial 6 up before the count displays correctly.

I got the Wedding in Apple Grove book for this month's pick.

Mine only shows 1 I believe they are only adding the credit at the beginning of each month now.

I still don't know what to get. Apple Grove looks good but her last series wasn't all that great.

I renewed mine since mid-September and it's also showing only 1 available credit, but then I've already used up all 6 credits from my initial membership run. If you have unused credits from before, you should probably send them an email to get it sorted out.

Same here; been thinking of getting A Wedding in Apple Grove also but I don't like what you're saying about her last series. It's early still but I may just bank my credit; can't work up much interest in the other selections.

I don't know what to get either....

Spoiler:
My biggest problem with her first book Tyler was the lack of describing the characters movements. Like one minutes they were lying in bed and the next doing it up against the door but it never mentioned how they got there and you'd have to piece it together yourself. Or my favorite scene They go to a restaurant sit down, order drinks, talk to the owner then to themselves and leave. No words describing them actually drinking or paying for it. The book was so full of dialogue and tons of minor details that I consider filler but lacked descriptive words on what the characters were doing.

There was also words missing in sentences like the or and...etc. Simple words that caused derailment because you were like did I read that right? It was like one chapter was edited okay but then you would get to the next chapter and the problems started all over again.

My problem with the second is the owner who owns Guilty Pleasure who also has a back room full of Adult Items does not coincide with the Heroine's personality who seems somewhat shy and not someone who would own an Adult store. I think it would take a special outgoing gal to run one in that small of a town but Ronnie is from up north. I think it was Boston and from an Italian family. So it's not very believable.

Some of the town's people want the shop gone and they are showed in the negative as the evil people throughout the series. The author's writing isn't what I say bad but I do think with some polish and reediting it could actually be pretty good and believable.
