His Runaway Campfire Princess His Runaway Campfire Princess by Gwen Hayes is 99c at Amazon! This contemporary romance sounds adorable with a princess running off to Singles’ Week at a camp.

A Princess on the run… Just once, Princess Merriam would like to make her own choices, but independence is in short supply when your father, the king, is of the royal opinion that princesses are for looking pretty and being obedient. When she overhears him talking to her broody, sexy, and oh-so-aloof bodyguard about her future wedding, a surprise to her as she’s not currently engaged to anyone, she plots her first rebellion: slip past her protection detail in NYC and board a tourist bus bound for Camp Firefly Falls where she plans to spend the week incognito as a normal twenty-something looking for love during Singles’ Week.

It’s time for our monthly discussion question! This month, with so many new reviewers, we have quite a conversation.

On to this month’s discussion. In addition to reading (lots and lots of romance) what kind and caring things do you do for yourself? Sarah: I have a list. I’m sure this surprises exactly zero people who know me, but as a self employed person who works from home, I have to actively monitor my tendency to think, “Well, you’re awake and caffeinated, so you might as well be working.” Not only does that increase my likelihood of burnout, but it makes me less effective and efficient in the long term. So I have a list of things I do that is titled, “Not Working Fun Stuff.” As in, what do I do when I’m not working? On the list: Cross Stitching: I’ve written about this before, but as a hobby, it’s soothing, meditative, creative, oriented toward puzzle or problem solving, and – added bonus –…

Did you know that you can sign up for the SBTB Daily Digest – our once-a-day (hence: daily) newsletter that emails the newest content every day (see? daily!) around 12pm ET? It’s true! If you hate missing a book on sale deal, or want to see the latest weirdness or critical discussion we’re having here, sign up and you won’t miss a single day. We have so many excellent new reviewers, too, so we’re going to have more outstanding new reviews each week. I set up the SBTB Daily so that you receive the newest content, and you get the entire post – no excerpts. This is contrary to a LOT of advice about RSS newsletters, let me tell you. The theory, I believe, is that a newsletter should drive traffic back to the site, so an excerpt should tempt readers to head over to the HQ for the rest of the mayhem. Now, I do like when you visit, and I love that our traffic increases month-to-month (that helps keep us in business), but I also want subscribers to, you know, get the SBTB content they’re looking for. So if you subscribe, you get the entirety of our newest content, including…
