Artemis Gordon Posted March 25, 2022 Share Posted March 25, 2022 The Bollywood Bride The Bollywood Bride by Sonali Dev is $2.99! This is a recommended contemporary romance and Dev is an auto-buy author around here. Redheadedgirl and Carrie did a joint review of the book and gave it a B+. Ria Parkar is Bollywood’s favorite Ice Princess–beautiful, poised, and scandal-proof–until one impulsive act threatens to expose her destructive past. Traveling home to Chicago for her cousin’s wedding offers a chance to diffuse the coming media storm and find solace in family, food, and outsized celebrations that are like one of her vibrant movies come to life. But it also means confronting Vikram Jathar. Ria and Vikram spent childhood summers together, a world away from Ria’s exclusive boarding school in Mumbai. Their friendship grew seamlessly into love–until Ria made a shattering decision. As far as Vikram is concerned, Ria sold her soul for stardom and it’s taken him years to rebuild his life. But beneath his pent-up anger, their bond remains unchanged. And now, among those who know her best, Ria may find the courage to face the secrets she’s been guarding for everyone else’s benefit–and a chance to stop acting and start living. Rich with details of modern Indian-American life, here is a warm, sexy, and witty story of love, family, and the difficult choices that arise in the name of both.

This is the third book in The Marriage Game series and I think had gone through a few different covers. Have you read any of the books in the series? Ella Quinn’s bachelors in The Marriage Game series are charming and cunning when it comes to the ways of love—until the right woman captures their unsuspecting hearts… Custom-made gowns…nights at the theater…and a host of eligible bachelors.

But when Serena’s brother demands she finally have a Season in London, she’s thrust into a glamorous world she’s only dreamed of… Robert, Viscount Beaumont, remembers all too well what it feels like to be in love. That is why he must keep his distance from Serena. He’s only felt his pulse stir the way it does now when he made the mistake of loving the wrong woman once before.

The Ruin of a Rogue The Ruin of a Rogue by Miranda Neville is $3.99 at Amazon and Barnes & Noble right now! It’s book two in the Wild Quartet series. I think this has some Cover Snark potential, given that the hero has his damn boots all over that nice dress. Charm, wit, and nerves of steel have helped Marcus Lithgow gamble his way across the Continent. But when his heart is at stake, all bets are off for this most perfect rogue… It’s been years since Marcus set foot in England—why toy with the ton when he can fleece wealthy fools in Paris and Rome? Yet everything changes when he inherits a ramshackle estate. Marcus’s first and only chance at a respectable life needs funding . . . the kind Anne Brotherton can provide. Such a wallflower should be ripe for the picking. So why does Marcus feel like he’s the one hanging by a thread? Anne Brotherton is sick and tired of being an heiress. She cannot bring herself to marry a fortune hunter. Why can’t men like her for her sharp mind and kind heart rather than her impressive dowry? She nearly falls for Marcus’s smooth seduction. But when Anne realizes she’s being strung along, a lust for payback empowers her like never before. Two can play the game of deception. The game of love, however, has its own rules.

A previous commenter, Ruth really liked this one: This is the second book in the “True North” series and it’s one of the best. It’s also one that can be read most independently from the others. Warning: it’s dark and deals with addiction, including the rural opiate crisis, and family issues. She’s the only one who ever loved him—and the only one he can never have. Jude lost everything one spring day when he crashed his car into an apple tree on the side of the road. A man is dead, and there’s no way he can ever right that wrong. He’d steer clear of Colebury, Vermont forever if he could. But an ex-con in recovery for his drug addiction can’t find a job just anywhere. For Sophie Haines, coming face to face with the man who broke her heart is gut-wrenching. Suddenly, he’s everywhere she turns. It’s hard not to stare at how much he’s changed. The bad boy who used to love her didn’t have big biceps and sun-kissed hair. And he’d never turn up volunteer in the church kitchen. She knows it’s foolish to yearn for the man who returned all the heartsick letters she wrote him in prison. But the looks he sends her now speak volumes. No one wants to see Sophie and Jude back together, least of all Sophie’s police chief father. But it’s a small town. And forbidden love is a law unto itself.
