It’s Friday, which means it’s time for my roundup of great FREE and bargain weekend reading!
First up this week, a free book, historical romance TOUCH THE SUN by my Jewel sister Cynthia Wright, from her Beauvisage Novels series. In 1789, on the eve of the first Presidential inauguration, charismatic Lion Hampshire aspires to a seat in the first Congress. To improve his rakish reputation, he arranges a marriage with Virginia-bred Priscilla Wade. However, his fiancée’s lady’s maid, Meagan, is irresistible, and Lion’s plans may be undone by his passion for the wrong woman… Regularly $3.99.
Our first 99-cent book today is another historical romance, HIS FORBIDDEN TOUCH by Shelly Thacker, from her Stolen Brides series. Princess Ciara may never reach her royal wedding if she can’t resist the rugged mercenary assigned to protect her: disgraced ex-knight Royce Saint-Michel. The two set off alone on a treacherous journey through snowy mountain passes, but forbidden desire soon proves even more dangerous than the assassins on their trail. Regularly $3.99.
A 99-cent bargain book for Regency romance fans: A LADY BY CHANCE by my Jewel sister Cheryl Bolen. Manipulated into a marriage of convenience to prove their patriotism, Anna and Charles, the Marquess of Haverstock, question each other’s loyalties. But there’s no question that Anna’s silken touch has bewitched the powerful lord who has become her husband, and no question that she craves every moment in his arms. Regularly $3.99.
Our final 99-cent bargain book is actually free at some stores! Medieval romance THE BEAUTY BRIDE by Claire Delacroix is Book 1 of her Jewels of Kinfairlie series. In this #1 Kindle bestseller, Madeline is shocked to learn her brother has auctioned her hand, never mind that she will be wed to a rough warrior wanted by the crown. But when Rhys treats her with honor and tempts her heart with stories, she dares to believe that love can conquer all. Regularly $4.99.
My book LOST IN TEMPTATION is now FREE! England, 1815: Lady Alexandra Chase has always done what was expected of her. But when the man she’s loved since her girlhood returns from a long spell abroad, she quite suddenly finds herself hoping the fine lord her brother has picked for her won’t propose… This is Book 1 in my Regency-set Temptations Trilogy. Regularly $4.99.
My book AMETHYST is also FREE! AMETHYST is set in London in 1666, and it’s the very first of all my connected Chase Family novels, which makes it the perfect book to start with if you haven’t tried my books yet. The plot in one sentence: Colin Chase’s carefully planned life is turned upside down when the Great Fire of London lands a lowly jeweler’s daughter in his arms. Regularly $4.99.
