Daily Deals: Amazon deals, historical romance, and suspense

I’m offering up a few Amazon only deals because the books that Amazon is discounting usually sell for $9.99 or more and I know a bunch of the readers here use Amazon deals. I have to tell you that it is so frustrating to search for deals that are at more than one retailer. Right now so many of the deals are repeats and I hate bringing you repeats.

Motorcycle books are all the rage and it doesn’t seem to have escaped the Inspirational fiction market (which Amazon has been promoting like no one’s business). This trilogy by Nancy Rue starts off with The Reluctant Prophet which is priced at $9.99 while the next two featured below are .99c. The protagonist is moved by the Lord to buy a Harley and it leads her into a new world filled with prostitutes, drug addicts, and criminals. There she apparently spreads the Gospel and changes their lives.

Amazon is having a big sale on books for $1.99. Many of them are non fiction ones that looked interesting and one was an Anne Stuart novel.

Finally, Monuments Men is $2.99. The movie looks intriguing but generally the book is almost always better.

Head To Head by Linda LaddHead To Head by Linda Ladd. $ 1.99

From the Jacket Copy:

With Every Turn In The Case. . .
After moving from Los Angeles to Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri, homicide detective Claire Morgan has at last adjusted to the peaceful rhythms of rural life. Until a grisly celebrity murder at an ultra-exclusive “wellness” resort shatters a quiet summer morning. . .

With Every Twist Of The Mind. . .
One of Dr. Nicholas Black’s high-profile clients, a beautiful young soap opera star, has been found dead, taped to a chair at a fully set table. . .submerged in the lake. Back in L.A., Claire investigated the rich, famous, and the deadly–but she never expected the problems of the privileged to follow her to this sleepy small town. Just as she never imagined crossing the line with her prime suspect. . .

With Every Beat Of The Heart. . .
Immersed in the case, Claire finds herself drawn to the charismatic doctor, spending more and more time in his company–and in his bed. Now, to catch a killer, Claire will have to enter the darkest recesses of the human mind. But is Black leading her there to help her. . .or luring her ever deeper into a madman’s grip?

Head To Head

PW writes “Though Ladd saddles Morgan with an all-purpose tragic past and occasional logic-deficient reasoning, she’s a smart, strong character capable enough to avoid the woman-in-distress scenarios her genre colleagues so typically fall into. Despite a propensity for caustic rambling, her tough-girl voice keeps the story moving toward a satisfying denouement with plenty of suspense and surprises.”

My Steadfast Heart (The Thorne Brothers Trilogy, Book 1) y Jo GoodmanMy Steadfast Heart (The Thorne Brothers Trilogy, Book 1) by Ko Goodman. $ .99

From the Jacket Copy:

Colin Thorne finds his way out of a London workhouse but at the cost of losing his two younger brothers. With an uncertain future ahead of him, Colin makes seafaring his life until the inexorable pull of revenge draws him back to London. The debt owed to him by the Earl of Weybourne will be paid.

Weybourne Park has been Mercedes Leydon’s home her entire life. Now serving as the estate’s manager and caretaker of her uncle’s two children, Mercedes knows the earl’s frequent absences are what make Weybourne Park a home.

But the earl’s gaming has taken its toll and she and her young cousins are faced with losing everything to a devil-of-a-stranger calling in a debt that can’t be paid.

Casting caution aside, Mercedes will make a new bargain with this devil. If it’s her soul he wants—or her body—she will give it to him and stake her own claim on his steadfast heart.

I believe I featured this series before. It’s a very good series so for historical readers who haven’t discovered Goodman this be good start.

    Sometimes I just shake my head over some of the OTT things authors come up with for serial killers to do in fiction.

    I was also checking out the Amazon books earlier– There’s a huge offering on my Fire w/ads of 600 reduced price Kindle books– and noticed that one of the books offered (HarperCollins/Zondervan) was a serial killer inspirational.
