Free (nook/Kindle/ePub/DRM-free) 3 titles by Hailey Edwards [High Fantasy w/Romance]

Three titles by Hailey Edwards (ISFDB), in her Araneae Nation series of high fantasy action/intrigue novels with strong romantic elements, are free courtesy of publisher Samhain and the author herself.

The entire series seem to all have a mild 2 flames on the heat index over at All Romance eBooks, which generally but not always means a fair amount of plot to go with the lightly described sexyfuntimes, and seem to revolve around an ongoing war/political intrigue storyline, even though the characters do switch from each installment to set up the new romances in them. YMMV as a Gentle Reader if they turn out to not be enough of one genre or the other for your tastes.

The 1st-in-series novel published by Samhain has previously been offered free in 2013, but the two tie-in novellas (which seem to be self-published backstory fill-ins) are newly free, as far as I can tell. They don't quite seem to have propagated to all the stores just yet, but assuming this isn't some kind of multi-store glitch freebie, it's probably just a matter of time. (I'll edit in price-drop check convenience linkage once I've finally gotten something to eat.)

And this has been the selected 3rd (non-repeat) free ebook thread of the day.

Because at least Samhain's giving out a few more freebies to everyone without having to jump through too many hoops, even as they try and force their would-be customers to haunt Twitter and Facebook in the hopes of being one of the first 20 people to be able to use the discount coupon codes they're passing out at sporadic intervals today.

So I might as well give them a bit of spotlight for the one practice of theirs that I actually approve of and want to encourage. Hope they keep it up.

Enjoy!
  1. A Hint of Frost 1st novel in the series @ Amazon (also available in the UK) & Kobo & DRM-free in multiple formats available worldwide via All Romance eBooks. (ETA: now also free @ B&N (also UK) & Google Play (available to Canadians), and directly @ the publisher's webstore (DRM-free multi-format bundle available worldwide))

    When the head of the Araneidae clan is found poisoned in her nest, her eldest daughter, Lourdes, becomes their clan's new maven. If her clan is to survive, she has but one choice: she must marry before her nest is seized. All she needs is a warrior fierce enough to protect her city and safeguard her clansmen. Such a male is Rhys the Cold.

    Born the youngest son of an impoverished maven, the only things Rhys has to his name are his sword and his mercenary reputation. His clan is starving, but their fondness for the flesh of fellow Araneaeans makes them unwelcome dinner guests. Torn between loyalty to his clan and fascination with his future bride, Rhys's first taste of Lourdes threatens to melt the cold encasing his heart.

    Amid the chaos of battle, Lourdes's sister disappears and is feared captured. Lourdes and Rhys pursue their enemies into the southlands, where they discover an odd plague ravaging southern clans as it travels north, to Erania. Determined to survive, Lourdes will discover whether she's worth her silk or if she's spun the thread by which her clan will hang.

    Warning: This book contains one mercenary hero with a biting fetish, one determined heroine who gets nibbled, and an answer to the age-old question, "What does dragon taste like?" Matricide and sibling rivalry are available upon request. The house special is revenge, best served cold.
  2. A Heart of Ice #0.5 prequel novella @ B&N (also UK), Kobo & iTunes (both available to Canadians) (ETA: now also free @ Amazon (available to Canadians))

    Reine knows marriage isn’t about love. It’s about making the best bargain you can with what you have and then living with the consequences. Wedding vows are alliances given voice, and I do is on the tip of her tongue.

    Ennis is a man on a mission to woo the future Araneidae maven, whether she wants him or not. Her clan is wealthy, prosperous and in dire need of the one thing his people have to offer—protection. But one look at her and all thought of his obligations vanish. He’ll court Reine, but he wants the feisty heiress all to himself.

    Forced to entertain offers from her bevy of suitors, Reine is torn between duty to her people and loyalty to herself. Ennis is the man she wants, but is he the future paladin her fragile clan needs? She can choose to lead with her head or, for once, she can follow her heart.
  3. A Kiss of Venom #3.5 novella @ B&N UK, Amazon (available to Canadians & in the UK), Kobo & iTunes & Google Play (all available to Canadians) (ETA: now also free @ B&N main)

    All’s fair in love and murder…

    Betrayed by her lover and exiled from her clan home, Nicolette has carved herself a new identity from the heart of her old life. Hardened by grief and desperate to survive, she hones a new skill set…and the daggers that go along with it.

    Armand is heir to the wealthiest clan in the Araneae Nation. His entire life is as mapped as his heritage. Tradition dictates his every decision, and the one choice he ever made for himself cost him the woman he loved.

    When Nicolette is offered a contract she can’t refuse, she returns to Erania with deadly intentions. Her secrets are safe behind the façade she created. Or they would be if Armand would stop chipping at the cracks in her veneer.

    One kiss ignites an old flame, and suddenly their history is in danger of repeating. Armand falls for Nicolette’s charade, but she can’t let a second chance at happiness distract her from her mission. Someone in the Araneidae nest is marked for death, and Nicolette aims to deliver.

    Warning: This story contains one heroine bent on revenge and one hero determined to atone for his sins. Also included are venom kisses, poison hangovers, pointy objects and questionable taste in condiments. Expect fireworks, near-death experiences and one surprise ten years in the making.

Now also free @ B&N and directly from the publisher for the novel, and some additional stores for the novella (links updated in OP). The novel will probably be disappearing soon, as Samhain rotates their freebies for the New Year.

#5 in this series, A Veil of Secrets, is now out, and can be gotten for just $2.20 if bought directly from Samhain using the HOLIDAY30 30% off promo code, which fellow MR member library addict kindly posted in the Romance megathread (please see their post for terms & conditions) which stacks (technically, it does the additional discount starting from the base price, so it's more like it adds) with Samhain's regular new-release/pre-order 30% off, provided you haven't used it already.
