I've been systematically zapping from my newsfeed anyone that posts anything (take that!), using the Like button on the individual FB pages.

I have then created new lists, all private, for pages and people (FB wont' let you combine them). I can go catch up or not, now, based on broad categories.

Yay!

Crystal Cove by Lisa Kleypas is $1.99 at both Amazon and B&N.

This is the newest book in her Friday Harbor series and was just released on February 5th, the regular price is $9.99 and I don't know if this is a sale or a pricing error.


Quote:
In New York Times bestselling author Lisa Kleypas's Crystal Cove, Justine Hoffman has made a comfortable life for herself on the island of Friday Harbor. She is the proprietor of a successful boutique hotel, and she has the safe, predictable life she has always wanted. Growing up with her flighty, nomadic mother, Marigold, has instilled in her a deep longing for stability. But in spite of everything Justine has achieved, there is still something missing. Love. And after years of waiting and dreaming, she is willing to do whatever it takes to change her destiny.

What Justine soon discovers is that someone cast a spell on her when she was born, with the result that she will never find her soul mate. Determined to change her fate, Justine finds a way to break the enchantment, never dreaming of the dangerous complications that will follow.

And when Justine meets the mysterious Jason Black, she accidentally unleashes a storm of desire and danger that threaten everything she holds dear . . . because Jason has secrets of his own, and he wants more from her than fate will ever allow.

NOTE: The 30% off coupon stacks with their regular 30% off on new releases and pre-orders. Some of these books are new releases so while the coupon's good until Feb. 28th the best deal is to be had if bought before Feb. 12th when they will no longer be new releases.

Just a heads up.

If you bought anything from this sale and later got a refund for a small amount of the purchase (mine was through PayPal) due to a "pricing error" be sure to check your bookshelf. I got a $0.70 refund and the books are now missing from my bookshelf on the Samhain site. I have an email into CS right now and hopefully it will be easily sorted.

Silent Run (Sanders Brothers #1) by Barbara Freethy [Onyx 2008]

Quote:
Forced off the road by another car, a woman awakens in a hospital with amnesia. Then a handsome stranger appears and informs her he is her baby's father and that she disappeared seven months ago. Now they must put their trust in each other to find their child and discover who wants her dead--and why.
Eternity (Immortal Witches #1) by Maggie Shayne [Jove 1998]

Quote:
300 years ago, Raven St. James was hanged for witchcraft. But she revives among the dead to find herself alive. She is an Immortal High Witch, one of the light. A note from her mother warns that there are others, those of the Dark, who preserve their own lives by taking the hearts of those like her.

Duncan Wallace’s forbidden love for the secretive lass costs him his life.

300 years later, he loves her again, tormented by hazy memories of a past that can’t be real. She tells him of another lifetime, claims to be immortal. Though he knows she’s deluded, he can’t stay away. And the Dark Witch after her heart is far closer than either of them know.

Also free at Kobo and Itunes

From Author:
Quote:
Apologies Nook readers. BN gives me no way to make it free there. Once this promo is done, I'll put it at a very deep discount at BN.com. Meanwhile, I was told Kobo is the same file format as Nook so you can try.
Update: It's now 99 cents at B&N the lowest she could put it.

OK, wasn't sure since they did something similar with book 2 in the same series after initial reviews were kind of luke warm. It's not often that you see a new book go on sale pretty much right away.

Am I the only one who thinks some authors haven't gotten the memo that the more... explicit erotic romance is no longer a boutique item? For that matter, some publishers of the stuff as well?

What I mean by this is that there is now a plethora of the stuff available, in all flavors and combinations, so an author can't really compel me to pay inflated prices just because there are naked body parts interacting in interesting ways. I'm not talking about competitive prices on the higher end, but rather prices way beyond average market for steamy romance ebooks in general.

Seems like common sense, to me, that there should no longer be a "dirty book price premium". We no longer buy them from the secret room in the back of the store. It's not hard to get this stuff anymore. Thanks to Harlequin, steamy has been mainstream for a while, and the books I'm talking about are often not much more explicit than those. But I see them priced in crazyland.

What brought this on, you ask? I have unspent reward bucks at AllRomance. I've been trying to decide how to spend them. Spending free money is always a challenge.
