Artemis Gordon Posted November 29, 2022 Share Posted November 29, 2022 A Duke, a Lady, and a Baby A Duke, a Lady, and a Baby by Vanessa Riley is $1.99! This one underwent a cover redesign. I think it’s fine, though the baby carriage doesn’t look to scale. Have you read this one? When headstrong West Indian heiress Patience Jordan questioned her English husband’s mysterious suicide, she lost everything: her newborn son, Lionel, her fortune—and her freedom. Falsely imprisoned, she risks her life to be near her child—until The Widow’s Grace gets her hired as her own son’s nanny. But working for his unsuspecting new guardian, Busick Strathmore, Duke of Repington, has perils of its own. Especially when Patience discovers his military strictness belies an ex-rake of unswerving honor—and unexpected passion… A wounded military hero, Busick is determined to resolve his dead cousin’s dangerous financial dealings for Lionel’s sake. But his investigation is a minor skirmish compared to dealing with the forthright, courageous, and alluring Patience. Somehow, she’s breaking his rules, and sweeping past his defenses. Soon, between formidable enemies and obstacles, they form a fragile trust—but will it be enough to save the future they long to dare together?

This is the first book in the Lords of the Highlands series, and features some forced proximity and the heroine who heals the hero. Readers loved the blend of action and romance, though some found the plot a little unbelievable. She’ll put her life on the line for him . . .

The Last Astronaut The Last Astronaut by David Wellington is $2.99 and is a KDD! This is near-future sci-fi with a heaping dose of horror; I’m so curious about it. Readers recommend this if you’re in the mood for something creepy, but wished it were more character driven. Sally Jansen was once NASA’s leading astronaut, but her final mission ended in disaster. Haunted by her failure, Jansen now lives in semi-retirement, convinced her days in space are over. She’s wrong. A large alien object has entered the solar system and is now poised above the Earth. It has made no attempt at communication and has ignored all incoming transmissions. At NASA’s request, Jansen must lead an expedition to the object in the hope of discovering its purpose. For all the dangers of the mission, it’s the one shot at redemption she always hoped for. Yet when K-Space, a powerful corporation, launches its own rival mission intent on claiming ownership of the object and whatever lies within, what began as a mission to make First Contact becomes a desperate race against time. As the object reveals its many mysteries, one thing becomes clear–the future of humanity lies in the hands of Sally Jansen. The last astronaut.

This is a fantasy romance with an arranged marriage. Readers loved the scholarly heroine, but found that the second half of the book had a very different feel than the first half. An Orphan’s Throne Magic has broken free over the Twelve Kingdoms. The population is beset by shapeshifters and portents, landscapes that migrate, uncanny allies who are not quite human…and enemies eager to take advantage of the chaos. Dafne Mailloux is no adventurer–she’s a librarian. But the High Queen trusts Dafne’s ability with languages, her way of winnowing the useful facts from a dusty scroll, and even more important, the subtlety and guile that three decades under the thumb of a tyrant taught her. Dafne never thought to need those skills again. But she accepts her duty. Until her journey drops her into the arms of a barbarian king. He speaks no tongue she knows but that of power, yet he recognizes his captive as a valuable pawn. Dafne must submit to a wedding of alliance, becoming a prisoner-queen in a court she does not understand. If she is to save herself and her country, she will have to learn to read the heart of a wild stranger. And there are more secrets written there than even Dafne could suspect… Add to Goodreads To-Read List → You can find ordering info for this book here.
