The Beautiful Ashes
The Beautiful Ashes by Jeaniene Frost is $1.99! This is the first book in her Broken Destiny series, which is a New Adult paranormal romance/urban fantasy. I like the new cover design, despite the model looking like he’s mid Thanos snap.

The Wanderer by Robyn Carr is $2.99! This is the first book in the Thunder Point series and Sarah gave it a B-:
Though I know it won’t be for everyone, I enjoyed the mellow, misty friendliness of Thunder Point, and even though the romance was barely secondary to the story, I liked the community and each of the characters enough that reading it made me content, which is just what I wanted.

The Elusive Earl
The Elusive Earl by Maddison Michaels is 99c! This is the second book in the Saints & Scoundrels historical romance series. Boy, those are some good pants on the cover. This sounds like a fun, opposites attract romance. However, others expressed frustrations with the wishy-washy heroine.

Acting Lessons by Katie Allen is $1.99! Katie Allen is another pen name for Katie Ruggle, for fans of her romantic suspense. I bought this one previously because I was very curious about the eye-patched cover model. However, I wasn’t immediately taken with the heroine.
An aspiring actress navigates the gig of a lifetime…and an illicit desire she never saw coming in the first book of a brand-new series from Katie Ruggle writing as Katie Allen.
It’s an offer she can’t refuse. Two weeks of work for enough cash to quit her day job and focus on auditions is a dream come true for struggling actress Topher. All she has to do is play girlfriend to a wealthy friend, helping him secure his trust fund. Then she meets her friend’s sinfully handsome, firmly off-limits uncle, and all bets are off.
Not only is Uncle James surprisingly younger than imagined, he’s charismatic and hot as hell. And there’s something about the wounded veteran’s hungry stare that has her thinking the feeling is mutual.
Topher’s determined to ignore Uncle Sexy, but the forbidden temptation is too much to handle, especially after James flashes his dominant side. But surrendering to temptation is easier said than done when the plot thickens. Even if Topher can manage to fool everyone involved, she’s not sure she can fool her own heart—or the man she’s definitely not supposed to be falling for.
