Bold Fortune

B093G9V8TV.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

RECOMMENDED: Bold Fortune by M.M. Crane is $1.99! Thank you to everyone who let us know about this sale! Lara reviewed this one and gave it B+:

I’m delighted to have discovered this series, and so pleased to have traveled and spent time with a character who reminded me of, well, past me. While the conflict upon reflection was a little sparse, I am very much looking forward to book two.

Opposites burn hot enough to melt the snow and ice of an Alaskan winter in this all-new series from USA Today bestselling author Megan Crane.

Quinn Fortune is the official protector of all the unspoiled beauty in Lost Lake, Alaska, as the head of the community trust. A rugged frontiersman through and through, he doesn’t do soft. But he can’t help his fascination with the pink-clad professor who shows up in Lost Lake seeking his approval for her cheerful outsider’s proposal about land that isn’t hers. Still, he agrees to consider it–if she can handle a month of good old-fashioned Alaska living. He’s betting she’ll head back to the safety of the Lower 48 within the week.

Violet Parrish is a thinker, not a doer, but desperate times call for extraordinary measures–like taking on the Alaskan wilderness. In January. Off the grid. With a mountain man hot enough to melt a glacier. The frozen Alaskan tundra should be no match for Violet’s determination, but the sheer immensity of the Last Frontier takes her by surprise–as does her attraction to gruff, impossibly handsome Quinn, and the unexpected heat that burns between them during the freezing Alaska nights…

The Body in the Garden

B07TY7NPQ1.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

The Body in the Garden by Katharine Schellman is $1.99! This is the first book in a historical mystery series and it also looks like book two is on sale. If you’re looking for a new series to start and have exhausted all the usual suspects, pick this one up!

Perfect for fans of Tasha Alexander and Rhys Bowen, Katharine Schellman’s debut novel is sure to delight.

London 1815. Newly widowed Lily Adler returns to a society that frowns on independent women, but she’s no stranger to the glittering world of London’s upper crust. She’s back in town and eager to have a renaissance with friends, particularly with Lady Serena Walter–from their school days–determined to create a meaningful life for herself even without a husband. She expects scandal, gossip, and secrets. What she doesn’t expect, as she’s visiting Lady Walter is a dead man laying in her garden.

Lily happened to overhear the man just minutes before he was shot: young, desperate, and attempting blackmail. When she finds out Lord Walter bribes the investigating magistrate to drop the case, Lily is worried, and becomes the only one with the key to catching the killer.

Aided by Navy Captain Jack Hartley and heiress from the West Indies Miss Ofelia Oswald, Lily sets out to discover whether her friend’s husband is mixed up in blackmail and murder. The unlikely team sets out to conceal their investigation behind the whirl of London’s social season, but the deceased knew secrets about people with power. Secrets that the powerful have desire and influence to keep hidden. Now, Lilly will have to uncover the truth, before she becomes the killer’s next target.

The Librarian and the Orc

B086QZ8XGW.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

The Librarian and the Orc by Finley Fenn is FREE! We’ve mentioned this at some point on the site because it was already in our book repo. I also know I have it sitting on my Kindle, collecting dust. Seems a little dark and bonkers, which I know is perfect for some of you (sending up the signal for DiscoDollyDeb!).

He’s a fierce, ferocious, death-dealing beast. And he’s reading a book in her library…

In a world of recently warring orcs and men, Rosa Rolfe leads a quiet, scholarly life as an impoverished librarian — until the day she finds an orc. In her library. Reading a book.

He’s rude, aggressive, and deeply terrifying, with his huge muscled form, sharp black claws, and cold, dismissive commands. But he doesn’t seem truly dangerous… at least, until night falls. And he makes Rosa a shocking, scandalous offer…

Her books, for her surrender.
Her ecstasy.
Her enlightenment…

Rosa’s no fool, and she knows she can’t possibly risk her precious library for this brazen, belligerent orc. Even if he is surprisingly well-read. Even if he smells like sweet, heated honey. Even if he makes Rosa’s heart race with fear, and ignites all her deepest, darkest cravings at once…

But surrender demands a dangerous, devastating price. A bond that can’t easily be broken. And a breakneck journey to the fearsome, forbidding Orc Mountain, where a curious, clever librarian might be just what’s needed to stop another war…

________________________________

A dark, angsty, full-length fantasy romance. Comes after The Heiress and the Orc, but also reads as a standalone. Happily ever after guaranteed.

Tempests and Slaughter

B072ST82XN.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

Tempests and Slaughter by Tamora Pierce is $1.99! Pierce is an auto-buy author for a lot of the Bitchery and this is the start to a new series, though it’s definitely related to her Tortall books. The second book was supposed to come out a couple years ago, but it looks like it’s on hold.

The highly anticipated NEW Tortall Legend from TAMORA PIERCE, the #1 New York Times bestselling author who is legend herself, is a must-read for any fantasy lover! 

Arram. Varice. Ozorne. In the first book in the Numair Chronicles, three student mages are bound by fate . . . fated for trouble. 

Arram Draper is a boy on the path to becoming one of the realm’s most powerful mages. The youngest student in his class at the Imperial University of Carthak, he has a Gift with unlimited potential for greatness–and for attracting danger. At his side are his two best friends: Varice, a clever girl with an often-overlooked talent, and Ozorne, the “leftover prince” with secret ambitions. Together, these three friends forge a bond that will one day shape kingdoms. And as Ozorne gets closer to the throne and Varice gets closer to Arram’s heart, Arram begins to realize that one day soon he will have to decide where his loyalties truly lie.

In the Numair Chronicles, readers will be rewarded with the never-before-told story of how Numair Salmalín came to Tortall. Newcomers will discover an unforgettable fantasy adventure where a kingdom’s future rests on the shoulders of a talented young man with a knack for making vicious enemies.
