Free and bargain romance ebooks + Discussion August 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 (or sometimes not even that long), 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…


Be sure to check the last page of July's thread for any deals you may have missed.

This is annoying! Mind you, looking at it from the European perspective I am used to getting only some of the books free that are posted here at free at Amazon, some are reduced later, some never. Sometimes I can grab a book at Kobo for free that Amazon only offers for free in the US, but these two are not available at Kobo (not right now anyway).

Free from Amazon US DE:

Cecilia by Blair Bancroft. This appear to be self-published, but the author has written numerous historical romances for Signet and Ellora's Cave.

Quote:
Author's Note: This Limited Special Edition of CECILIA also includes BELLE, Book 1 of The Aphrodite Academy series. These novellas go beyond the traditional Regency novel to explore what might have happened to young women, from ladies to tavern wenches, to whom life was unkind—young women with no family or friends willing to help when their lives fall apart. This is a new genre for me, and I call it "Regency Darkside." The language is saucy, the sex occasionally graphic. But the stories are driven by plot and character, not the sex scenes. And traditional Happily Ever After endings prevail.

BELLE. Lady Arabella Pierrepont vows vengeance on all men, only to find the one man she respects and secretly loves—the man who rescued her from her father's abuse—is the high bidder for her services as a courtesan. And now she must suffer the anguish of being mistress to the only man she ever wished to marry.

CECILIA. Cecilia Lilly has but one grand ambition—to become the mistress of a titled gentleman. Unfortunately, she soon learns the truth of the old adage, "Be careful what you wish for." Yet even after suffering a severe beating by her "protector," a marquess, she finds it difficult to accept the friendship of a man on a far different rung of London's social ladder.

Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00L0O0Q8G
iBooks: http://bit.ly/1lkzpF9
Kobo: http://store.kobobooks.com/en-us/Sear...

Synopsis: Sometimes the forgotten past holds the key to the future.

Sometimes summer can steal into your heart, bringing a flood of memories.

She comes home to forget…until he helps her remember. Beach picnics, lake sunsets and skinny dipping in the moonlight help Mandy and Kevin heal the memories of divorce and war. A lot has changed when Mandy Klavis is called back to Sandy Shores by a family emergency. Voted the girl most likely to succeed, she’s discovered marriage and a city career didn’t deliver. Duty calls her home. Kevin Corbin, her high school boyfriend, knows all about responsibility. When he stops in her family bakery for a raspberry kolache, unsettling memories come flooding back.

Following three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, the star quarterback now struggles with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Instead of a wife, he has a one-eyed dog named Rufus. But Kevin’s still smoking hot -- a good-hearted man with a sweet smile. Together they explore summer in Sandy Shores, the way it used to be. The lake provides carefree refuge but a hidden danger could end their dreams.

Bella Andre - I Only Have Eyes For You (The Sullivans #4) : Amazon | Kobo

Quote:
In I ONLY HAVE EYES FOR YOU by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Bella Andre, the only woman Jake McCann wants is the one he can never have. But even though he knows loving Sophie Sullivan isn’t the right thing to do...how can he possibly resist?

Sophie Sullivan, a librarian in San Francisco, was five years old when she fell head over heels in love with Jake McCann. Twenty years later, she’s convinced the notorious bad boy still sees her as the “nice” Sullivan twin. That is, when he bothers to look at her at all. But when they both get caught up in the magic of the first Sullivan wedding, she knows it’s long past time to do whatever it takes to make him see her for who she truly is...the woman who will love him forever.

Jake has always been a magnet for women, especially since his Irish pubs made him extremely wealthy. But the only woman he really wants is the one he can never have. Not only is Sophie his best friend’s off-limits younger sister...he can’t risk letting her get close enough to discover his deeply hidden secret.

Only, when Sophie appears on his doorstep as Jake’s every fantasy come to life—smart, beautiful, and shockingly sexy—he doesn’t have a prayer of taking his eyes, or his hands, off her. And he can’t stop craving more of her sweet smiles and sinful kisses. Because even though Jake knows loving Sophie isn’t the right thing to do...how can he possibly resist?

Author's Note: While this can easily be read as a stand-alone story, you'll enjoy it even more if you read the other Sullivan books, too.

A Dangerous Expectation
By Cecilia Gray

In the cloistered English countryside, an improbable couple will defy expectation.
Miss Cassandra Drummond, shipping heiress and consummate shut-in, flees London and the hectic to-do of her sister's upcoming nuptials. She wants a quiet summer away from everyone, especially marriage-seeking fortune hunters.
She doesn't expect Mr. Gray Abernathy to prove dangerous to her impregnable walls.
Mr. Gray Abernathy, poor ducal relation and consummate harmless flirt, eeks by on his charming manner and his pretty face. He wants an independence where he isn’t beholden to anyone, certainly not a shipping heiress.
He doesn't expect Miss Cassandra Drummond to prove dangerous to his impregnable heart.
Fortunately for all, love and life can often exceed expectations...
* * *
Don't miss The Gentlemen Next Door series, because sometimes a lady in need of love need look no further than next door:
Book 1: A Delightful Arrangement
Book 2: An Illicit Engagement
Book 3: A Dangerous Expectation
Book 4: A Flirtatious Rendezvous

The Gentlemen Next Door Series are historical regency romance novellas of approximately 15,000-words (60 printed mass paperback pages)

Enraptured, Alannah Carbonneau, free as of 6:59pm Saturday eastern time

I accidentally posted this in the July thread...since I am nearly frequent lurker.
Enraptured BY Alannah Carbonneau


Book Description
Publication Date: October 16, 2013
Enraptured is a single novel love story that will warp your views on love. It will blur the fine line between love and friendship. Enraptured is about a boy and a girl, Dace and Ella, who are so wrong for each other in every sense of the word. She’s good. He’s bad. She’s innocent. He’s damaged. But through all the challenges presented, they find a way to quench the thirst of their souls when their defenses finally shatter around them, exposing them for all they are. When acceptance is all there is left, the two have to find a way to rise above the secrets kept and lies told.
