Daily Deals: Some old classics
Jackson Rule by Dinah McCall. $ 1.99
From the Jacket Copy:
For powerful emotion and unforgettable romance Sharon Sala can’t be beat. This beautifully repackaged classic is sure to delight her long-time fans and attract new ones!
Jackson Rule had spent nearly half his life behind bars for murder. Now he was starting over—or trying to. Once he laid hungry eyes on his new employer, though, his resolve to lead a simple solitary life deserted him, replaced by yearnings for fierce, forbidden passion.
Preacher’s daughter Rebecca Hill was raised to give folks the benefit of the doubt—though maybe this time she’d taken charity a bit too far. True Jackson Rule had paid his debt to society, and was a hard, honest worker. What threatened to undo her was the sheer burning desire she felt in his presence, and the sinking feeling that her heart would be his captive forever.
The Vampire Who Loved Me by Teresa Medeiros. $ 1.99

His fruitless pursuit of his stolen mortality has devastated him. And a recent spate of murders makes Portia fear that the man she has always adored may truly be a monster.
Julian knows he must drive Portia away—but his passion and hunger for her grow more irresistible every time they touch.
Exclusively Yours by Shannon Stacey. $Free.
From Jacket Copy:
When Keri Daniels’s boss finds out she has previous carnal knowledge of reclusive bestselling author Joe Kowalski, she gives Keri a choice: get an interview or get a new job.
Joe’s never forgotten the first girl to break his heart, so he’s intrigued to hear Keri’s back in town—and looking for him. He proposes an outrageous plan—for every day she survives with his family on their annual camping trip, Keri can ask one question.
The chemistry between Joe and Keri is as potent as the bug spray, but Joe’s sister is out to avenge his broken heart, and Keri hasn’t ridden an ATV since she was ten. Who knew a little blackmail, a whole lot of family and some sizzling romantic interludes could make Keri reconsider the old dream of Keri & Joe 2gether 4ever?
Too often in romantic comedies, family can play an annoying, artificial role as “obstacle to True Love,” but here the family presence helps build context and continuity for Joe and Keri’s relationship, as well as filling out what would otherwise be a relatively narrow romantic storyline. Joe’s parents clearly view Keri’s presence as indication that she and Joe are working on a reunion, although they are not sentimentally deluded about it. Terry doesn’t want them back together, not so much because of her relationship fallout with Keri, but because of the pain her leaving the first time caused Joe. Kevin, Joe’s youngest brother and obvious sequel bait, is happy to tease Joe about filling-in for him with Keri anytime, and Mike, who is married to Lisa and father to “four rambunctious boys,” is too involved in his own problems to care much what Joe and Keri do. For the time Keri spends with the family, she is both Joe’s high school girlfriend enjoying the raucous comfort of his family and an outsider struggling for the sense of identity and accomplishment she has fought so hard to attain.

From the Jacket Copy:
