Finding Joy

B085TRV833.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

Finding Joy by Adriana Herrera is 99c! What a cute illustrated cover! This was mentioned on a previous Hide Your Wallet and appears to be a stand alone and not part of any sort of series. Have you read this one?

As his twenty-sixth birthday approaches, Desta Joy Walker finds himself in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, the one place he’s been actively avoiding most of his life. For Desta, the East African capital encompasses some of the happiest and saddest parts of his life–his first home and the place where his father died. When an unavoidable work obligation lands him there for twelve weeks, he may finally have a chance for the closure he so desperately needs. What Desta never expected was to catch a glimpse of his future as he reconnects with the beautiful country and his family’s past.

Elias Fikru has never met an opportunity he hasn’t seized. Except, of course, for the life-changing one he’s stubbornly ignored for the past nine months. He’d be a fool not to accept the chance to pursue his doctoral studies in the U.S., but saying yes means leaving his homeland, and Elias isn’t ready to make that commitment.

Meeting Desta, the Dominican-American emergency relief worker with the easy smile and sad eyes, makes Elias want things he’s never envisioned for himself. Rediscovering his country through Desta’s eyes emboldens Elias to reach for a future where he can be open about every part of himself. But when something threatens the future that’s within their grasp, Elias and Desta must put it all on the line for love.

The Golden Spider

B01JEU08I0.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

The Golden Spider by Anne Renwick is 99! This is a steampunk romance with two doctor characters. Readers say there’s a lot of great sexual tension between the hero and heroine, but found some of the medical jargon took them out of the story. It has a 3.9-star rating on Goodreads.

London papers scream of dirigible attacks, kraken swarms, and lung-clogging, sulfurous fogs. But a rash of gypsy murders barely rates mention.

Lady Amanda is tired of having both her intelligence and her work dismissed.

After blackmailing her way into medical school, she catches the eye of her anatomy professor from the moment she walks into his lecture hall. Is he interested in her? Or only her invention–a clockwork spider that can spin artificial nerves?

Lord Thornton, a prominent neurobiologist, has been betrayed.

Secret government technology has been stolen from his laboratory, and a foreign spy is attempting to perfect it via a grisly procedure… using gypsies as test subjects. The last thing he needs is the distraction of a beautiful–and brilliant–new student, even if her spider could heal a deteriorating personal injury.

Until her device is stolen and used in the latest murder.

Lord Thornton has no option but to bring her into his laboratory as well as the investigation where they must fight their growing, yet forbidden, attraction. Bodies accumulate and fragile bonds are tested as they race across London, trying to catch the spy before it’s too late.

The Last Sky

B0166PXF1I.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

The Last Sky by Jess Anastasi is FREE! This is a sci-fi romance and the first in a series. It was also published previously under a different name called Atrophy. I’m always on the hunt for more sci-fi romances and free is a good price to take a chance!

Winner of a 2015 Galaxy Award for science fiction romance!

No one on Erebus escapes alive…

Twelve years on the prison planet Erebus makes a man long for death. The worst part for Tannin Everette is that he was framed for murder. He’s innocent. When the ship Imojenna lands for emergency repairs, Tannin risks everything to escape…only to find himself face to face with the captain’s undeniably gorgeous sister.

Zahli Sherron isn’t planning on turning Tannin in. In fact, she actually believes him. Sure, he’s sexy as every kind of sin, but he’s no criminal–so she hides him. But no one escapes from Erebus and lives to tell about it. With every day that passes, Zahli further risks the lives of the entire crew…even as she falls in love with a man she can never have for herself.

Previously released as Atrophy

The Neapolitan Novels

B079MDD33J.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

The Neapolitan Novels by Elena Ferrante is $3.99 at Amazon! It’s around $40 elsewhere, so this is a major discount, though it could expire at any second. These are definitely bestsellers, but I was never super interested. Are you a fan?

In one volume, the New York Times–bestselling epic about hardship and female friendship in postwar Naples that has sold over five million copies.

Beginning with My Brilliant Friend, the four Neapolitan Novels by Elena Ferrante follow Elena and Lila, from their rough-edged upbringing in Naples, Italy, not long after WWII, through the many stages of their lives—and along paths that diverge wildly. Sometimes they are separated by jealousy or hostility or physical distance, but the bond between them is unbreakable, for better or for worse.

This volume includes all four novels: My Brilliant FriendThe Story of a New NameThose Who Leave and Those Who Stay; and The Story of the Lost Child.
