Bargain - various HarperCollins reduced $0.99 - $2.99

Several books marked down from HarperCollins - sorry if there are any repeats.

The Widow's War - Sally Gunning $0.99 Kindle/B&N

In a colonial whaling village, Lyddie Berry is very happy with her husband, Edward, the home they've built together over the years, and the children they've raised. When Edward is lost in a whaling disaster, Lyddie discovers her new status as a widow is not equal to her former status as a wife. All of the property Lyddie and Edward have acquired is now the responsibility of Lyddie's tight-fisted son-in-law. Although destitute and grieving, Lyddie finds righteous anger and strength, and challenges her son-in-law when he violates the terms of her husband's will. This defiance leads her to question other values held by the community about a woman's place, and even as she loses her reputation and home, she gains a deeper sense of self.

Soul Song - Marjorie M. Liu (Dirk & Steele #6) $1.99 Kindle/B&N

World-renowned-violinist Kitala Bell is blessed with the gift to produce otherworldly music and cursed to foresee the violent deaths of others. She shuns her visions, protecting her sanity against the pain, until one woman's fate compels her to intervene. Kit now faces an all-too-imminent death until M'Cal steps out of the darkness and unleashes a song of destruction on her attackers, a song that calls to the melodies in her mind. Even in her mystical world, he is unlike anything she has known. A man imprisoned by past mistakes, forced to hunt her for his own captor, yet equally compelled to keep her safe.

In the Dark of Dreams - Marjorie M. Liu (Dirk & Steele #8) - $1.99 Kindle/B&N

She could never forget the boy with the ice blue eyes . . .
She was only twelve when she saw the silver boy on the beach, but Jenny has never stopped dreaming about him. Now she is grown, a marine biologist charting her own course in the family business—a corporation that covertly crosses the boundaries of science into realms of the unknown . . . and the incredible.
And now he has found her again, her boy grown into a man: Perrin, powerful and masculine, and so much more than human, leaving Jenny weak with desire and aching for his touch.
But with their reunion comes danger. For Perrin and Jenny—and all living creatures—their only hope for preventing the unthinkable lies in a mysterious empire far beneath the sea . . . and in the power of their dreams.

Hunter Killer - Patrick Robinson (Admiral Arnold Morgan #8) - $1.99 Kindle/B&N

Globe-trotting action-hero admiral Arnold Morgan (retired) returns in this typical Robinson potboiler. A Saudi Arabian prince is mounting a coup d'etat, aided by the French mercenary Le Chasseur (the Hunter) and Ravi Rashood, the world's most wanted terrorist. Fearing the collapse of the Saudi Arabian oil industry, not to mention the economy of the world, the Americans charge into action, and it's up to Morgan to crush the prince's rebellion. Can a showdown between Morgan and Rashood, his archnemesis, be far off? Fans of Robinson's big, meaty thrillers know what to expect: wall-to-wall military technology, dialogue that borders on turgid, and plenty of derring-do, with the future of the free world hanging, as always, in the balance.

A Well Favored Gentleman - Christina Dodd (Well Pleasured #2) $1.99 Kindle/B&N

Powerful Ian Fairchild is a man with magical powers and dark secrets--and he covets Fionnaway Manor. But the Scottish estate is owned by beautiful Lady Alanna, and Ian must marry her to gain the right to claim Fionnaway as his own. Alanna doesn't trust the handsome Ian but all too soon she finds herself falling in love with him. The secrets Ian holds may make it impossible for him to love her in return and despite Alanna's faith, his past and dark heritage threaten a happy ending for the two lovers.

Blindsighted - Karin Slaughter (Grant County #1) $1.99 Kindle/B&N

The sleepy town of Heartsdale, Georgia, is jolted into panic when Sara Linton, the town's pediatrician and coroner, finds Sibyl Adams, a young college professor, dead in the local diner. As well as being viciously raped, Sibyl has been cut: two deep knife wounds form a lethal cross over her stomach. But it's only once Sara starts to perform the postmortem that the full extent of the killer's brutality starts to become clear.

City for Ranson - Robert W. Walker (Ransom #1) - $1.99 Kindle/B&N

Welcome to Chicago, 1893 -- where new wonders are being unveiled . . . and a monster feeds on the unsuspecting.

Tens of thousands are flocking to a bustling, wind-swept metropolis in the middle of America for the great Exposition of 1893 -- to seethe future and to ride Mr. Ferris's remarkable wheel. A city of hope and hardship has caught the attention of the world -- and a maniacal killer has made it his hunting ground.

Inspector Alastair Ransom carries the burden of the dead on his shoulders. But a demon far worse than Ransom's own is loose -- a bloodthirsty killer who preys on Chicago's most vulnerable citizens, his grisly handiwork masked by the glitter and frenzy of the World's Fair. But a haunted detective doesn't realize how desperate his search has become -- for each passing hour brings the slayer closer to his next intended victim: Alastair Ransom.

Shadows in the White City - Robert W. Walker (Ransom #2) - $2.99 Kindle/B&N

The nation and the world gaze in awe at Chicago's magnificent "White City" in this summer of 1893. But Inspector Alastair Ransom sees the rot beneath the splendor of the great Exposition—and he is consumed with an over-powering need for vengeance. "The Phantom of the Fair," a blood-thirsty fiend who nearly added Ransom to his ever-growing list of slaughtered victims, is still lurking somewhere in the shadows of Ferris's gargantuan Wheel. And to end the maniac's reign, Ransom refuses to play by the rules established by the police brass and the corrupt politicians—appointing himself judge, jury . . . and executioner.
