Back to our yesterday’s regularly scheduled programming :
6:24pm EST TUESDAY BREAKING NEWS UPDATE!!! I just added FIVE MORE to the contemporary romance section below. Right at the top of the list so you can’t miss ‘em. Includes one CRAZY sounding one by Teresa Mummert, and one a rock star one by Emma Hart and a YIKES OMG!!! sounding one by H.M. Ward. OH YES!!!
It’s ready!! And while the list, as it stands, is VERY pretty and full of book-goodies, I’m going to add-on through the day. There are SO many awesome book-bargains right now, too. Tee hee! So take a look, and keep checking back ’cause I’ve still got more to come.
ALSO!!! Don’t forget to check out yesterday’s EARLY-BIRD RELEASES ’cause, even though it’s short and sweet, it’s got some super-sounding books (that are already sky-rocketing up the Amazon best selling charts as we speak). And that’s including one that I LOVED and just reviewed and highly recommend. I linked up the review on it, too.
Oh and the ones that gave me a blurb-jolt (or were an absolute one-click for me): Indebted Series 1-3: Boxed Set (yes please! At THAT price, a dark read series that so many here can’t stop talking about – MINE!!), Zane (a vampire & human romance series that sounds right up my alley! She just got divorced and is at a book signing, and HE is at her table!!) Stout (they are new neighbors, thinking they are strangers, but they’ve met before…), His to Love (She’s a mafia princess and he’s her ex… now an undercover cop out for revenge, plus I loved another book by this author), Glitter on the Web (I love the premise of this one, too! He’s a famous singer with a new hit song about his love of bigger girls, and his groupies think he’s a sweetheart, but his ex outs his secret…) and Rush (Football star that ends up in jail with her… “Because of him, she’s in trouble and when he discovers her true identity, he realizes, his nightmare is just beginning.” YES PLEASE to this, too!). OH and TWO more that have my attention that I just added this evening: Hollow (she’s a TOTAL b*tch and has no qualms about it – that blurb is almost infuriating!!) and Secrets and Lies (she’s about to have a one-night stand with a sexy stranger, but before they go all the way, he darts and leaves her there, and a week later she realizes he wasn’t a stranger at all… OH. OH.) <— THIS SOUNDS AWESOME!!!
P.S. Let me know if I’m missing any or if you loved any (from this list or elsewhere).
P.P.S. Don’t have a Kindle? No problem! Amazon offers various free Kindle apps and a free Kindle Cloud reader for any and ALL of us to use. You can either use the free Kindle App for your smartphone, tablet, AND your desktop computer (just like you’re using a Kindle, but right through your web browser <— No need to download anything!)
For those going on a road trip soon, or maybe you’ve got some projects that require both hands this weekend but still allows you to “listen”… check out the free audible trial + 2 free audiobooks deal —>
- AND! Here’s the fun-tool again! —> Find out which of YOUR Kindle books are available as audiobooks at a BARGAIN-PRICE! <— This thing is so cool (Amazon calls it “Matchmaker“)! It’s an Amazon feature, that scans your Kindle books and will list all of the ones you have that are also available as an audiobook at a discounted price (not normal audiobook prices). This way, you can switch back and forth, seamlessly between your ebooks and your audiobooks. VERY COOL!
BARGAINS & READER RECOMMENDATIONS (NOTE: bargain priced when I added them, but prices can change on Amazon, so make sure to check before you finalize your order).

- Indebted Series 4-7: Boxed Set by Pepper Winters <— And here’s the second half!
Tessa: Alright, commenting super fast. If you like dark reads, you have to give Indebted a chance. It’s angsty and insane.
- Zane (THE FLAMES OF VAMPIRE PASSION SERIES Book 1) by Elaine Barris <— THE BLURB HAS ME!!! And book #2 was just released (below in the paranormal section). I didn’t read that blurb so I don’t spoil it for myself, but this one… YES PLEASE!! “I had left my husband to pursue my life on my own terms rather than put up with one more word of insult. Once I arrived at the event, I was startled to find someone already at my table, Zane, claiming to be my assistant for the night…” Lots of great reviews for BOTH books already…
- Danse Macabre by Christina Quinn <— VAMPIRE BALLET GROUP & the human ballerina that is intrigued by him. This one is super-bargain priced right now, and book #2 was just released below. They intrigue me… “The poised, demure Autumn is shocked to find herself attracted to Aleksi, in spite of all of the warnings she’s received her entire life about vampires.

- Beauty and the Mustache: A Philosophical Romance (Knitting in the City Book 4) by Penny Reid <— still super-bargain priced! And Jacee loved it!
“Finished Beauty and the Mustache last night. Honestly, Drew is the sweetest. It’s so romantic. I cried sad tears, happy tears, sweet tears..all the tears. It’s different from her other books in that it’s not as funny. It’s so romantic. Drew has this quiet, sweet, hot, manly thing going on. You can read it alone, but I enjoyed seeing all the characters from previous books.”
