Free and bargain romance ebooks + Discussion February 2014

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

We point out free and bargain romances to each other, and 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.

Be aware that many freebies are only free for a day, so grab them fast!


In addition to the freebies, sales, and coupons we do a weekly purchased/read roundup (voluntary only, but it’s fun to use Calibre’s virtual library feature to take a screengrab in cover view ) We also discuss reading apps and devices, books, and life in general a bit in this thread. Sometimes we go off on seemingly unrelated tangents, but we always find our way back…


Check out the last page of January's thread in case you missed any deals.

February's selections are up at Discover a New Love

Silence of the Wolf by Terry Spear
Quote:
Life For the Silver Pack Just Got Wilder...

Elizabeth Wildwood has been a longer all her life, ostracized because of her "mixed" half-wolf, half-coyote blood. When she ventures into gray wolf territory on a dangerous quest of her own and his thrown together with the sexiest shifter she's ever met she begins to wish for the first time that she could be part of a family. When this unusual shifter female comes into his pack's territory, it's Tom Silver's job to protect her—if only she would let him.
Miss Molly Robbins Designs a Seduction by Jayne Fresina
Quote:
She Designs Dresses for London's Leading Ladies

Molly Robbins is finally stepping into the spotlight. Her unique dress designs have caught the eye of London's elite. And if it means her own dress shop, proper Molly will make a deal with the devil himself—the notoriously naughty Earl of Everscham. But becoming his mistress is not a part of their arrangement. It's right there in the contract's fine print: No Tomfoolery.

He's an Expert at Taking Them Off

Carver Danforthe has a reputation for beautiful mistresses, cutting remarks, and shirking his responsibilities—not for indulging the ambitions of his sister's maid. He must have been drunk when he signed that blasted contract. The stubborn female may thing she's gotten the best of him, but what this situation calls for is a little hands-on negotiating...

All's Fair in Love and Fashion
Magic Man by Patricia Rice
Quote:
He's a Lonely Highland Lord...

Aidan Dougal is deadly, and he knows it. His self-imposed isolation is to keep others out of harm's way. However, it also makes any kind of intimacy impossible...and certainly not marriage! Asking for help is beyond him until a woman unlike any he's ever met slips into his life like an answered prayer.

She's a Complication He Never Expected

Mora Abbott has been trained in patience, prudence, and practicality. But all those virtues fly out the window the moment she meets Aidan. She has a gift for saving people, but the more time she spends with the dark Scottish lord, the more she realizes she's the one in danger...of completely losing herself to his wicked ways.
The MacGregor's Lady by Grace Burrowes
Quote:
What if the steps they take to avoid marriage…

The last thing Asher MacGregor, newly titled Earl of Balfour, wants is a society wife, though he has agreed to squire Boston heiress Hannah Cooper about the London ballrooms. When he's met that obligation, he'll return to the Highlands, and resume the myriad responsibilities awaiting him there.

…Lead instead to impossible love?

At her step-father's insistence, Hannah Cooper must endure a London season, though she has no intention of surrendering her inheritance to a fortune hunter. When she's done her duty, she'll return to Boston and the siblings who depend upon her for their safety... or will she? The taciturn Scottish earl suits her purposes admirably—until genuine liking and unexpected passion bring Asher and Hannah close. For if the Scottish earl and the American heiress fall in love, an ocean of differences threatens to keep them apart.
Telling Tales by Cherlotte Stein
Quote:
One Steamy Reunion

Back in college, Allie and her friends used to come up with the wildest stories. When a professor bequeaths his mansion to Allie and three other former students, it's the chance they've all been looking for to get back together. But there's more than friendship bubbling beneath the surface...

As secrets are revealed and relationships rekindled, the stories get dirtier and the stakes get higher. And now Allie's realizes that she isn't quite sure who she wants...fun-loving Wade or quiet, restrained Cameron. Neither has been honest about their feelings, and now they have the chance to act on all of the tales that ignite their most primal desires.
Must Love Dukes by Elizabeth Michels
Quote:
She Can't Resist the Dare

Lillian Phillips could not imagine how her quiet, simple life had come to this. Blackmailed by the Mad Duke of Thornwood into accepting one wild dare after another...all because of a pocket watch. Desperate to recover her beloved father's pawned timepiece, Lily did something reckless and dangerous and delicious—something that led to a night she'd never forget.

He has a Reputation for Scandal

When Devon Grey, Duke of Thornwood, runs into a mesmerizing, intoxicating, thieving woman who literally stole from his bedchamber—with his new pocket watch—Devon plots his revenge. If the daring wench likes to play games, he's happy to oblige. After all, what's the ruse of being the Mad Duke if you can't have some fun? But the last laugh might just be on him...

I remember looking forward to the first of each month because that's when all the new goodies would show up. Now we are lucky if we can find one or two books. I didn't see anything in the slush pile worth posting.

Maybe things will pick up on Monday.

Crimson Romance
Here you go a link that shows all book under $2

Keep in mind a month membership is like $13 and will get you access to every title ever published.

Take the Bait
Cindy Dees



More than just eye candy

Rookie attorney Dani Wellford's taciturn client has the strangest request: "Send me to jail." Easy case, right? Wrong, especially as she faces Cam Townsend, the hot assistant DA who's hell-bent on seducing her—and winning the case. The way he wears his suits should be a crime; he gets Dani's mojo going, in the courtroom and the bedroom.

Before long, their professional ethics are more tangled than the bedsheets. But when Dani goes to battle against her firm's old-boy network trying to prove a hefty case of discrimination, she ends up with the most unexpected ally…and perhaps just the right bait for a lifelong sentence.

$0.99 sale on Beat of the Heart (Runaway Train #2) by Katie Ashley

http://www.amazon.com/Heart-Runaway-.../dp/B00FXIRE8U

And Blossom - what's that them I've seen you mention for historical romances which are pretty much contemporaries in fancy dress? I need to make a shelf on GR for these! Just DNF'd Season for Temptation because of it - I'm not usually a stickler for historical accuracy, but this one just felt wrong from the get-go.

Not Blossom, but I think the term you're looking for is "wallpaper historical".

When she shows up in his office to tell him about missing narcotics, Drog relishes the chance to work more closely with her.

The Tower

The Moon

For days she'd felt as though a dark storm was rapidly approaching. When she looked at the cards, she knew it had arrived. The Tower falling, casting her into the nightscape of The Moon.

Nothing would keep Matteo Cabrelli from claiming Sarael. She'd been created for him, her destiny written in ancient blood. Once he joined with her, there would be no chance of La Brama, The Hunger, controlling him. Her blood would sate him, her body would succor him, her life would give deeper meaning to his own so that instead of centuries of meaningless conquest and feeding, of lone pursuits, he'd have a companion at his side, a woman who was his in every way. A woman meant to live in his world.

Unfortunately for Cady, someone has discovered her secret. Someone—or something—not quite human.

Obsidian is a warrior, proud and fierce. He wants Cady to join his army in the war against their common foe. He also wants her to join him in his bed, to tempt and delight her into tying her life to his and leaving her world behind...forever.

Mistoricals is what Jane at DA calls them to me they are worse than wallpaper historicals.

When I think of Wallpaper Historicals I think of Julia Quinn or Sabrina Jefferies which I do enjoy but Mistoricals are people like Tessa Dare and pretty much all the new regency that sourcebooks puts out.

I hear Tessa Dare's newest novels has like 20 or something movies references in it. People seem to think that's brilliant.

I think a list needs to be made for these type stories so I can avoid them. I think they should have there own genre kind of like Steampunk is Victorian and scifi these are a mix of contemporary elements with modern characters in long dresses.

I like this post about it Carolyn Jewel calls them meta-regency. I love the comments and one calls them Regency in Drag!
