DAILY DEALS: Enterprising butlers, a society belle, and Neil Gaiman fantasy
Strip You Bare by Maisey Yates $ 0.99
From the Jacket Copy:
Sparks fly when a society belle and a biker with a troubled past get down and dirty in the Big Easy. Maisey Yates turns up the heat in the sizzling finale of a series co-written with Megan Crane, Rachael Johns, and Jackie Ashenden.
Micah Carpenter hates New Orleans. Hell, after ten years he no longer has much affection for the Deacons of Bourbon Street motorcycle club, either. But when the brotherhood calls, Micah answers. Joining the hunt for their mentor’s killer, he crosses paths with a Southern belle who exudes class—and sex appeal. Micah knows better than to mess with ice princesses: No matter how hot things get, they never melt. And yet he can’t stop himself from offering her a taste of the wrong side of the tracks.
Sarah Delacroix understands that reputation is everything. The daughter of a prominent family rocked by scandal, she’s desperate to restore their good name. Micah’s exactly the kind of man she should be avoiding. Behind his sleek and sophisticated exterior beats the heart of a predator—and she knows it. But, like the tattoos beneath his tailored suit, his rough edges are irresistible. And all too soon Sarah finds him getting under her skin . . . and living out every one of her hottest fantasies.
Butler Did It by Kasey Michaels $ 1.99
From the Jacket Copy:
Like every noble in the London peerage, Morgan Drummond, Marquis of Westham, expects his butler to be awaiting his return home—even when that return follows a five-year absence. But he didn’t expect the horde of strangers who’ve taken up residence in his house, courtesy of that enterprising butler and a discreet classified ad. Morgan’s plan to toss his unwelcome tenants into the street is thwarted by a beautiful but indomitable debutante, Miss Emma Clifford—who’s not averse to a bit of blackmail for a good cause.
Now Morgan finds himself squiring the lovely Emma to the ton’s most fashionable events—and what’s more surprising, he’s beginning to enjoy it. Surely he’s not falling for such an infuriating woman, even if she does have a way of making him forget his own name? That butler has a lot to answer for—but then again, it’s so hard to find good help….
Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman $ 1.99
From the Jacket Copy:
Published in 1997, Neil Gaiman’s darkly hypnotic first novel, Neverwhere, heralded the arrival of a major talent and became a touchstone of urban fantasy. Over the years, a number of versions were produced both in the U.S. and the U.K. Now Gaiman’s preferred edition of his classic novel reconciles these works and reinstates a number of scenes cut from the original published books.
Neverwhere is the story of Richard Mayhew, a young London businessman with a good heart and an ordinary life, which is changed forever when he discovers a girl bleeding on the sidewalk. He stops to help her—an act of kindness that plunges him into a world he never dreamed existed.
Slipping through the cracks of reality, Richard lands in the Neverwhere—a London of shadows and darkness, monsters and saints, murderers and angels that exists entirely in a subterranean labyrinth. The Neverwhere is home to Door, the mysterious girl Richard helped in the London Above. Door, a noblewoman whose family has been murdered, is on a quest to find the agent that slaughtered her family and thwart the destruction of this underworld kingdom. If Richard is ever to return to his former life, he must join the journey to save Door’s world—and find a way to survive.
A hallucinatory fantasia of mystery, mythology, and terror that “draws equally from George Lucas, Monty Python, Doctor Who, and John Milton” (USA Today), Neverwhere is an “Alice in Wonderland with a punk edge” (Poppy Z. Brite), “that is both the stuff of dreams and nightmares” (San Diego Union-Tribune).
The McCain Saga by Keary Taylor $ 0.99
From the Jacket Copy:
It’s easy to fall in love with a McCain, but it isn’t always easy to keep one. Fours books, the whole family in one set!
EVER AFTER DRAKE
He’s not complicated–a high school history teacher, just like me. He’s sweet and kind and insanely adorable, and comes from a wonderful family. He is everything I want. The chemistry between us? It’s there in spades. I keep telling myself that I should be feeling really awful and depressed since I just got dumped a few days ago. But I keep getting this ridiculous smile on my face every time Drake is around and it’s kind of hard to keep telling myself that. I’m Kaylee Ray. I believe in fairy tales and happily ever after’s, and maybe the search for Prince Charming is over.
MOMENTS OF JULIAN
I never expected to see Julian again after a random, hot make out session in the back of my car. But suddenly Julian Dohring is everywhere. And I can’t get over the endless tattoos that cover his arms, how he’s apparently a recovering video game addict, and dresses like he’s ready to walk down the red carpet at any moment. My attitude and pride have always been enough to keep any man from getting too interested. Until Julian…who claims I can’t dance, and has the nerve to call me a “peach.” I’m Sage McCain, and needless to say, Julian has my attention.
DEPTHS OF LAKE
It was another day at the ranch, training horses and working fifteen hour days. And then the last person I ever expected showed up. Lake McCain: a Marine, tall, ripped—and the best friend of my dead fiancé. Cal died to save Lake, and now Lake claims that he carries a debt to me that he can never repay. Now we work together, spend endless days, side by side, and I can’t deny there’s something between us. I’m Riley James, and there are depths to Lake—depths to myself—that I don’t think I’ll ever fully understand.
PLAYING IT KALE
That night, I met someone who changed my life forever. Kale McCain. World-famous model, ladies’ man, not a flaw to him. And the most unexpected thing happened—sparks flew. Everything about Kale is smooth: his attitude, his voice, his body… He is my polar opposite. But somehow, him—me, we work. Then there was the video he made. Us together, me singing, him grinning like I was the sun, moon, and stars. And my simple life exploded. I’m Whitney Ford, and from the second Kale McCain walked into my life, I knew it would never be the same.
THE McCAIN SAGA: Beautiful, romantic, dramatic, intense…and always PG-13.
