Hey everyone! Sorry I almost missed the alert again this week. Things are crazy at work and at home right now, and I’m scared I’ve bitten off more than I can chew. I volunteered to go to a three-day trade show with work, meaning I need to get ahead on work beforehand, and I’m already working 10-hour days.
BookBlogWriMo also starts soon, and my boyfriend moved to NYC so I’m spending a lot of time on buses and cars in traffic. Plus, I used to bribe him into doing all my chores for me, so now I need to do my own dishes and laundry. SUCKSSS.
My point? Sorry if this blog is a little sparse. Bear with me. It’s not an easy time for me right now. 🙁 I’m just going to do the best I can and hope things get better.
Onto the sales! I didn’t have much time to scour Amazon this week, but I do have a few for you:

As they grow closer, Libby is forced to choose between standing out from the crowd and following her heart. She wants Alec, but his past is dictating their future.

Painted Faces by L.H. Cosway – Free
Dublin native Freda Wilson considers herself to be an acquired taste. She has a habit of making offensive jokes and speaking her mind too often. She doesn’t have the best track record with first impressions, which is why she gets a surprise when her new neighbour Nicholas takes a shine to her.
Nicholas is darkly handsome, funny and magnetic, and Freda feels like her black and white existence is plunged into a rainbow of colour when she’s around him. When he walks into a room he lights it up, with his quick wit and charisma. He is a travelling cabaret performer, but Freda doesn’t know exactly what that entails until the curtains pull back on his opening night.
She is gob-smacked and entirely intrigued to see him take to the stage in drag. Later on, Nicholas asks her if she would like to become his show assistant. Excited by the idea, she jumps at the chance. Soon she finds herself immersed in a world of wigs, make-up and high heels, surrounded by pretty men and the temptation of falling for her incredibly beautiful employer.
In this story of passion and sexual discovery, Nicholas and Freda will contend with jealousy, emotional highs and lows, and the kind of love that only comes around once in a lifetime.
Frenched by Melanie Harlow – On Sale for $0.99
When Tucker Branch, playboy heir to Branch Bolt and Screw, screws and bolts a week before their wedding, Mia Devine wants nothing more than to crawl under her newly monogrammed sheets and plan a funeral for her dignity. But her friends convince her that bitter tastes better when it’s drowned in Bordeaux, so Mia grits her teeth and packs her bags, determined to make the best of her luxurious Paris honeymoon—alone.
She never planned on meeting Lucas Fournier.
The easygoing bartender’s scruffy good looks and less-than-sympathetic ear annoy her at first, but when she takes him up on his offer to show her around the city, she discovers that the romance of Paris isn’t just a myth.
Nor is the simultaneous O.
The last thing Mia needs is another doomed love affair, but since she only has a week, she figures she might as well enjoy la vie en O with Lucas while she can. But each day—and night—with Lucas is better than the last, and suddenly her heart is telling her this is more than a rebound fling.
Is it just the seduction of Paris…or could this be the real thing?
Wild by Adriane Leigh – On Sale for $0.99
Kat Kennedy moved to the rugged coast of Maine to start a new life, but encountered much more than she bargained for in dark, dangerous, and seductive Lane Wild.
Desire and temptation smolder before she succumbs to her darkest fantasies with the captivating stranger. She doesn’t expect to see him again after an explosive one-night stand leaves her breathless and craving more, but just like lightning in the darkness, he shows up in her life at the most unpredictable moments.
A sensual game of cat and mouse ensues before the attraction between them reaches a fever pitch–the magnetism combustible, the sexual tension nearly unbearable–and Kat finally abandons inhibition and explores the cunning, selfish, and sexual side of a world she’s never known.
They have the perfect non-relationship–passion-fueled nights with no strings attached–until life gets real and the past and present collide in a dangerous storm of lust and obsession.
