The Lost Man

B07FM4HQ9N.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

The Lost Man by Jane Harper is $2.99! This is a standalone mystery and a few of us at SBTB HQ love Harper’s mysteries (myself included). They’re a little twisty and extremely atmospheric. Are you a fan?

Two brothers meet at the remote fence line separating their cattle ranches in the lonely outback. In an isolated belt of Queensland, they are each other’s nearest neighbor, their homes four hours’ drive apart.

The third brother lies dead at their feet.

Something caused Cam, the middle child who had been in charge of the family homestead, to die alone in the middle of nowhere.

So the eldest brother returns with his younger sibling to the family property and those left behind. But the fragile balance of the ranch is threatened. Amidst the grief, suspicion starts to take hold, and the eldest brother begins to wonder if more than one among them is at risk of crumbling as the weight of isolation bears down on them all.

In Bed with Mr. Wrong

B00HFUAODQ.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

In Bed with Mr. Wrong by Katee Robert is $2.99 This is the first book in the Out of Uniform category romance series and it looks like all of the books are either 99c or $2.99. Lots of tropes here! Opposites attract, forced proximity, small town setting. Might grab this for myself!

A sexy category romance from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…

The blind date from hell is about to get hotter…

Brianne Nave is never doing her friends a favor again. When they begged her to go on a blind date, she didn’t expect someone so perfectly gorgeous. She’s a mousy librarian—totally not in this man’s league. And judging by his odd reaction when she opens the door, he knows it, too.

Air Force Pararescuer Ryan Flannery avoids his hometown at all costs. He’s not thrilled about the date until he’s shocked silent by the prickly little librarian’s sweet curves and kissable lips…and her smart mouth. But then an argument leads to a kiss that spirals out of control. How can two people have so little chemistry outside the bedroom when they fit together so perfectly in it?

When their friends strand them in a cabin to “work things out,” Bri’s not sure whether to kill him or put the industrial-sized box of condoms they find to use. Bottom line—Ryan’s career military and hates the tiny town she loves. He’ll leave, just like everyone else in her life. And if she’s foolish enough to give him her heart, he’ll take it with him.

(Trust) Falling for You

B08PW3BPMZ.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

(Trust) Falling for You by Charish Reid is $2.99! Catherine recently reviewed it and gave it a B:

The best romances, to my mind, are those in which two people help each other to become better and happier versions of themselves, and (Trust) Falling For You has this in spades. Really, my only complaint is that I wanted more of it – more story, more opportunities to see the characters together, more of everything. Which is a pretty nice complaint to have.

Yolanda Watson is the “fun professor.”

She makes literature exciting, she brings students donuts for Finals Week, and her colleagues love her. The only thing that will make teaching better is if she can learn how to write a grant and skip those boring committee meetings. In short, a History professor is her problem. He stole her grant and he chairs the most boring committee on campus.

Sure, he’s cute… but he can afford to loosen up.

Samuel Morris is a work-horse.

He puts his head down and proves his worth at Franklin University. That means no inane chit-chat with colleagues, no treating students like friends, and no shenanigans during the Assessment Committee. But a certain English professor happens to be full of shenanigans. She’s late, loud, and disorganized.

Sure, she’s sexy… but she can afford to tighten up.

They’ll both have to compromise.

A university team-building retreat to the woods of Wisconsin will ensure that. After a lodging mix-up, the opposites are forced to share the same cabin for six nights. As Team-Building Buddies, they will: sleep together, eat together, and play embarrassing bonding games together. One of them will have to budge. The sexual tension will get harder to ignore, especially when one Buddy requires rescuing from spiders, grasshoppers, and bears. Oh my…

Briarley

B07CWF9KT6.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

Briarley by Aster Glenn Gray is $2.99 at Amazon! This was featured on a previous edition of Book Beat and is a queer retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Most of the comments in that post were all about how good this dang book is. Have you read it?

An m/m World War II-era retelling of Beauty and the Beast.

During a chance summer shower, an English country parson takes refuge in a country house. The house seems deserted, yet the table is laid with a sumptuous banquet such as the parson has not seen since before war rationing.

Unnerved by the uncanny house, he flees, but stops to pluck a single perfect rose from the garden for his daughter – only for the master of the house to appear, breathing fire with rage. Literally.

At first, the parson can’t stand this dragon-man. But slowly, he begins to feel the injustice of the curse that holds the dragon captive. What can break this vengeful curse?
