Free and bargain romances in March 2013

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.

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

a Victoria Dahl novella
Strong Enough to Love @ Amazon

Quote:
Photographer Eve Hill was completely comfortable being single. Or at the very least, she was completely resigned to it. There was only one man who made every nerve in her body and brain light up when he walked into a room. But Brian Stewart had always been off limits. Hell, she'd never even kissed him!

For Brian, returning to Jackson Hole feels like coming home. But that has nothing to do with the town. It's Eve drawing him back. Eve and the chance to finally see if they have something or if it's all been in his imagination.

Eve doesn't think she can open her heart to Brian again after getting hurt so badly before, though her body still wants him. She offers Brian one night to fulfill their long-denied fantasies, and that's it. No love or promises, just a chance to get their attraction out of their systems. But can one night really be enough?

Return to Jackson Hole for more steamy romance by Victoria Dahl in Close Enough to Touch, Too Hot to Handle and So Tough to Tame.
looks to be the introduction to a new series

Demon Possession (Shadow Quest #1) by Kiersten Fay

Quote:
After being enslaved on the spaceship Extarga for most of her life Analia has no memory of her life before, and has lost all knowledge of her people. Her mysterious gift and pointed ears are the only indication that she is different.

Analia is alone, and for all she knows, she's the last of her kind. By chance Analia escapes her captors, and hides herself on the merchant ship Marada, planning to get off at the very next stop.

Unfortunately for her, there is no next stop. The crew is planning a delivery that could take months, and according to a stipulation in the newly signed contract, no one is allowed on or off the ship until the package is delivered.

When Analia is found by a handsome demon, and captain of the Marada, she must adapt to her new role on the ship, and try to control her newly awakened desire for the brutal, and devastatingly erotic demon.

ATDrake already posted stand alone threads for these, but for those that subscribe to this thread . . .

From HarperCollins
The Taken (Celestial Blues) by Vicki Pettersson Kindle | Nook

Quote:
Vicki Pettersson, author of the New York Times bestselling Signs of the Zodiac urban fantasy novels, breaks out with The Taken. The first book in her sexy, supernatural noir mystery series, Celestial Blues, The Taken features a former p.i.-turned-fallen angel and a beautiful, tough Las Vegas reporter--the most unorthodox pair of avengers since Jeaniene Frost's Cat and Bones--joining forces to confront a terror that threatens to wreak murderous havoc in both the mortal and the immortal worlds. A dark and delicious mix of noir mystery, urban fantasy, and paranormal romance
From Samhain
Double Down (Vegas Top Guns #1) by Katie Porter Kindle | Nook | Samhain (should be free here soon)

Quote:
As part of the 64th Aggressor Squadron, Major Ryan “Fang” Haverty flies like the enemy to teach Allied pilots how not to die. The glittering excess of the Strip can’t compare to the glowing jet engines of his F-16. But a sexy, redheaded waitress in seamed stockings? Now she gets his blood pumping.

Cassandra Whitman’s good-girl ways haven’t earned any slack from her manager ex-boyfriend, or prevented a bad case of frazzle from holding down two and a half jobs. She sure wouldn’t mind letting the handsome Southern charmer shake up her routine.

Their wild weekend lives up to Sin City’s reputation. Especially when they discover a matched passion for roleplaying. For Cass, it’s an exciting departure from her normal, shy persona. But for Ryan, it triggers memories of a time when his fetish drove away the woman he loved—leaving him reluctant to risk a repeat performance.

Except Cass refuses to settle for ordinary ever again. She’s about to show the man with hair-trigger hands that she’s got a few surprise moves of her own.

Warning: This book contains dirty-hot roleplaying, featuring an all-alpha fighter pilot and an ambitious waitress with a fabulous imagination. Also: dressing-room sex, a plaid schoolgirl skirt, and a sprinkling of spankings.

Available at bargain price from Amazon:

Natalya US DE by Cynthia Wright for $0.99 / € 0.89.

Quote:
The story of CAROLINE's daughter
Special Author's Choice Edition
Originally Published by Ballantine Books

1814: Grey St. James has escaped from Napoleon's prison on the rocky isle of Mont St. Michel. Desperate and dangerous, he is a far cry from the rakish nobleman who broke hearts in Regency London.

In her uncle Nicholai's French chateau, Natalya Beauvisage is writing a novel. At 26, she is beautiful but hardly marriageable, for she is devoted to being an author. However, when a potently attractive stranger appears to hold her at knifepoint, Natalya thrills to a flesh-and-blood man.

Grey must escape from France and Natalya longs to return to America, so they form an unlikely alliance, traveling through France, Regency England, and across the ocean to the Beauvisage home in Philadelphia. Natalya is caught up in a passionate fantasy that surpasses any she could imagine, but Grey's heart is imprisoned by dark secrets that must be uncovered before he can love again...

Reunite with the couples from CAROLINE, TOUCH THE SUN, and SPRING FIRES in this enchanting & witty historical romance!

If anyone's been enjoying those official Abingdon Press Christian historical romance freebies by Rita Gerlach, she's offering a similar KDP self-pub inspirational set in US colonial times: The Rebel's Pledge

I also spotted backlist repeats by Barbara Samuel and Brenda Novak, for anyone who might have missed them earlier.

And Onyx-published RITA award-nominee Diana Dempsey is offering a self-pub romantic suspense free to all via Smashwords: Chasing Venus

And Zebra-published Rainy Kirkland is offering one of her Kensington historical backlist (formerly KDP Select exclusive-or-else) alongside a self-pub romantic suspense free via Smashwords.

Caroline, the 1st novel in that series, is currently free via Smashwords, if you want it to start with, alongside a different 1st-in-series freebie from Wright.

Do yourselves a favor and skip this one. Read the one star review, and believe it. It's true.

If anyone knows of blogs that still list freebies can you PM me the links? I've pretty much lost all my sources other than Facebook.

If I could figure out how they search for freebies I'd be happy to do it for Romance books and post what I find. It's not like I have anything else better to do. I have no life. eReaderIQ was my main source with a few smaller blogs and now I feel so lost....

This Search will bring up all Kindle Romance books sorted by $0.00 stuff first. I don't know of another way and this one brings up a lot of stuff to go through.
