Stormy Persuasion

Stormy Persuasion by Johanna Lindsey is $1.99 at Amazon and $2.99 elsewhere! Readers loved the opposites attract element of this historical romance, while others found the plot to be a little all over the place. It looks like a few other of Lindsey’s books are discounted.

James Malory sets sail for America to honor a promise he made to his in-laws: His and Georgina’s daughter, Jacqueline, will have her come-out in America. Judith and Jacqueline Malory are not simply cousins; they are inseparable best friends. Refusing to miss Jacqueline’s come-out in Connecticut, Judith convinces her parents to let her delay her London debut by a few weeks so she can accompany her cousin. Neither girl intends to fall in love during her first Season. But Judith’s plans are overturned when aboard ship she comes face-to-face with the ghost who has been haunting her dreams.

Unknown to the Malorys, deckhand Nathan Tremayne is a smuggler with a noose around his neck. Determined to carry out a covert mission in America that could gain him a pardon, Nathan senses that beautiful Judith Malory is trouble. Somehow the minx knows his secret—and now she’s blackmailing him into doing her bidding. While passions can soar on the high seas, Nathan knows this aristocratic beauty is merely amusing herself with a scoundrel like him.

When the unthinkable happens in Connecticut and the elder Malorys’ hands are tied, Nathan takes command of a dire situation. Captaining his own ship, he turns the tables on Judith, as he steers them into some intense Caribbean heat where he will fight with all his mettle to win the right to her heart.

The Scotsman Who Swept Me Away

The Scotsman Who Swept Me Away by Hannah Howell is $1.99! This is an American historical romance with a Scottish hero. It also came out this August. Readers say this is a slow burn romance, but felt the lack of conflict keeping the main couple apart made it feel too slow.

New York Times bestselling author Hannah Howell brings the proud heart of Scotland to life in her magnificent novels. Now the seven MacEnroy brothers are about to take America by storm . . .

Off the New England coast, courageous Mehitabel Ampleford wields a rifle to protect her home from a brutish band of men who are after her land. She will not be intimidated, but their attacks are growing fiercer, and just as their latest confrontation threatens violence, a bold stranger appears out of the ocean mists to send the raiders packing.

Geordie MacEnroy has seen the ravages of war in his mountain town—and in the injuries suffered by his youngest brother; now, his restless soul is calling him to find sanctuary by the sea. His long journey to the beautiful coastline of his adopted homeland feels like a new beginning as lovely Mehitabel, so wise and self-sufficient, offers blessed hope for healing his brother’s wounds. Geordie envisions a beautiful life with her as his bride, but a woman who has fought so fearlessly for her home may not willingly surrender all for his love.

Pirates, Passion, & Plunder

Pirates, Passion, & Plunder is 99c on Amazon! This is an anthology of seventeen novellas featuring pirates. It looks like the average page count is around 90 pages or so per story. If you want even more pirate romances, there is another anthology with a slightly higher page count per book. I think these sets are related since they have a few authors in common and the were released the same day.

All Souls Trilogy

The All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness is $1.99! This set contains a complete, finished trilogy for under $2. This trilogy seems to be rather divisive as I’ve seen comments on the site where people have love it or couldn’t make it through the first book.

The All Souls Trilogy follows the story of Diana Bishop, a historian and reluctant witch, as she solves the mystery of Ashmole 782, falls in love with a mysterious vampire named Matthew Clairmont, and learns how powerful it can be to accept who you are.
