Cry Wolf


Cry Wolf by Charlie Adara is a KDD today at $1.99! This is book five in the Big Bad Wolf series, a series that has a LOT of fans. It has a 4.5+ star average (WOW) on GoodReads, and the series was recommended by Aarya in our Ready Set Go: Best Shifter Romance thread, too. Alas, I don’t know if you can jump in at book 5, but I’ve never held back from doing so when I’m curious about a book. Have you read this series?

Don’t miss this thrilling installment in Charlie Adhara’s suspenseful paranormal mystery series, Big Bad Wolf.

Agent Cooper Dayton never thought anything could be harder than solving murders. Until he had to plan a wedding.

After taking down an old adversary, Agent Cooper Dayton of the Bureau of Special Investigations has earned a break. Not that planning a wedding to his sexy shifter partner, Oliver Park, is necessarily stress free, but it’s better than worrying about the ominous warning, delivered months ago, that Cooper’s life is in danger.

When he’s dragged to an event by his family, Cooper braces for an awkward evening, but instead finds himself in the middle of an ugly feud between Park’s ex and a rebel pack leader. What was supposed to be a quick outing turns into a full-blown murder investigation after the pack leader ends up dead, Park’s ex goes missing, and Cooper and Park are sent a series of disturbing wedding gifts that are somehow connected to it all.

The list of potential suspects is long, and with the bodies piling up, Cooper must turn to the one person he trusts the least: the villain he’s already put behind bars once and who has nothing to lose by lying and everything to gain if Cooper is out of the picture—for good.

Lily by Patricia Gaffney is $1.99!

Ok, so if you’re going for this one, there are a few things you’ll need to know. This is some Old Skool romance. This book was originally published in 1991 – so it’s thirty years old.

The cover copy mentions a “tormented and brooding” hero with “compelling masculinity.” Expect punishing kisses and SO MUCH ANGST. It’s been recommended in older columns as a Most Angsty romance of the Old Skool variety.

And there is NO denying this book is memorable: It was the subject of a Solved HaBO! If Old Skool Angst is your jam, proceed to sale, and enjoy.

A young noblewoman, fleeing from the darkness of her past, falls into life as a housemaid at a country manor—and into the arms of the lord who owns it.

Born a lady, but now orphaned and left to the care of distant relations, Lily Trehearne’s fortunes are low indeed. All she inherited from her spendthrift father is a tangled web of debt, and her ultra-pious guardian, the Reverend Roger Soames, seems determined to marry her off to his son Lewis.

Determined to save herself from that dreary fate, Lily panics and flees to Cornwall. Under the pseudonym Lily Troublefield, she accepts the first position she is offered, as a housemaid at the ominously named Darkstone Manor, property of Devon Darkwell. Lily’s new master is eccentric, deeply troubled . . . and strangely irresistible.

Crazy Rich Asians


Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan is $1.99! You might have heard of this book – basis for the movie, massive bestseller, first in a series, 3.8 average on Goodreads.

If you’ve been curious, this sale may tempt you!

When New Yorker Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home and quality time with the man she hopes to marry. But Nick has failed to give his girlfriend a few key details. One, that his childhood home looks like a palace; two, that he grew up riding in more private planes than cars; and three, that he just happens to be the country’s most eligible bachelor.

On Nick’s arm, Rachel may as well have a target on her back the second she steps off the plane, and soon, her relaxed vacation turns into an obstacle course of old money, new money, nosy relatives, and scheming social climbers.
