Some Great Ebook Deals For Your TBR Pile

First of all, Happy Pioneer Day!  (And I'm glad I'm not a pioneer.  Indoor plumbing, refrigeration, and air conditioning and everything else I'm spoiled with.)  But I'm grateful for them and their sacrifice.  Three of my boys are currently on a pioneer trek in Wyoming and I know this will be an incredible experience for them.  Hard, yet amazing.  So, hurrah for the pioneers!

Since I haven't had a lot of time to read lately, I thought I'd pass along to you some of the ebook deals I've been taking advantage of and adding to my "to-be-read" list.  (And no, I don't get anything if you buy or don't buy.  I'm just passing along books that looked awesome and like something I would want to read.)

Twitterpated by Melanie Jacobson  ($2.99)

Jessie Taylor is furious when her roommate secretly posts her picture on the dating website LDS Lookup—furious, that is, until she spends all night instant messaging Ben Bratton, a man whose wit and warmth just might make Jessie forget the train wreck of her last romantic relationship. Their first date is a smashing success (literally), but Ben’s overall awesomeness can’t save Jessie from having to deal with Craig, her competitive coworker whose baiting behavior sets new standards for obnoxiousness. Determined to beat Craig at his own game, Jessie spends long office hours finishing projects and putting out fires, but while her performance wows her boss, it only makes Ben skittish—after a failed engagement to an up-and-coming lawyer, he’s not about to pair up with someone who’s married to her job. Will Jessie figure out how to be true to herself and take her big chance at love before it’s gone with a click of the mouse?

Kiss of a Stranger by Sarah Eden ($2.99)

When Crispin, Lord Cavratt, thoroughly and scandalously kisses a serving woman in the garden of a country inn, he assumes the encounter will be of no consequence. But he couldn’t be more mistaken— the maid is not only a lady of birth, she’s the niece of a very large, exceptionally angry gentleman, who claims Crispin has compromised his niece beyond redemption. The dismayed young lord has no choice but to marry Miss Catherine Thorndale, who lacks both money and refinement and assumes all men are as vicious as her guardian uncle. Trapped between an unwanted marriage and a hasty annulment, which would leave his reputation tainted and Catherine’s utterly ruined, Crispin begins guiding his wife’s transformation from a socially petrified country girl to a lady of society. Their unfolding relationship reveals encouraging surprises for both of them, and privately, each of them wonders if theirs may become a true marriage of the heart. But their hopes are dashed when forces conspire to split asunder what fate has granted, and as a battle of wits escalates into a life-threatening confrontation, will it be possible for Crispin and Catherine to live happily ever after?

This book is also being offered for $2.99 for a limited time.  I've actually read this one and it is my favorite Sarah Eden book.  You can purchase it here

Reforming Lord Ragsdale by Carla Kelly  ($2.99)

Emma Costello owes a debt of honor to one of the most dishonorable lords in the realm. The infamous Lord Ragsdale is as rich as sin, as sinful as he is rich, and as heartless as he is handsome. But after he saves Emma from a life of indentured servitude and shame, she decides that it is her personal duty to save him from his reckless ways . . . without falling in love.

I just started this book and so far I am loving it!  It is also being offered for $2.99.  You can purchase it here

In the Arms of Danger by Marie Higgins  (Free!)

Taylor Marshal and her daughter need protecting, yet the bodyguard assigned is the one man she fears the most.

Four years earlier, Taylor gave her heart to a stranger – and married him in a quick Bermuda ceremony. A week later her hopes were crushed when she finds out her new husband, Cory Ross, was a hit man. When she witnesses him take another man’s life then watches her new found love fall from a cliff after being shot, her heart shatters. Now she sees Cory Ross is alive – and back in her life as her own personal bodyguard, yet how can she trust him?

Cory thought his luck had changed after his near death experience in the Bahamas. But when he looks into the eyes of the woman who he suspects had something to do with his accident, he realizes his new assignment to protect Taylor and her young daughter will be a literal nightmare. But to fall in love all over again with Taylor Marshall will be sheer torture.

I don't know anything about this book, except that it's billed as "clean," being offered for free, and the back copy looked good.  I plan on starting this one as soon as my edits are over.  You can download it for free here

Happy Reading!

Thanks, Julie!! "In the Arms of Danger" is a clean romance because there is are no sex scenes. However, the sexual tension in the story might get a little 'warm' at times... but there will be NO sex at all in the story! :)

Julie Coulter Bellon said...

Thanks for clarifying, Marie! It looks good! :)

Melanie Jacobson said...

Thanks, Julie! And before you even ask (because I know you will!), yes, Sandy gets her own story and it comes out in October. :)

Julie Coulter Bellon said...

Melanie, the fact that you're pre-empting my questions means you know me too well. Ha ha!

I did a double-take when I saw "Marie Higgins" Wait, did that say Mary Higgins Clark? No? Ok.

I had the same problem when Steve Martini started publishing books.

Also, really, you should look into becoming an Amazon associate, might make a couple of pennies off of referrals. ;) Doesn't impact the buyer's cost.
