Ensnared – Bargain of the Day

Ensnared

Love the cover on this one. (Whoops, looks like the cover has been modernized. Talk about a 180!)

A Near Future Retelling of Beauty and the Beast

Alainn’s father is not a bad man. He’s a genius and an inventor. When he’s hired to create the robot Rose, Alainn knows taking the money is a mistake.

Rose acts like a human. She looks exactly like Alainn. But, something in her comes out wrong.

To save her father from a five year prison sentence, Alainn takes Rose’s place. She says goodbye to the sun and goes to live in a tower no human is allowed to enter. She becomes the prisoner of a man no human is allowed to see.

Believing that a life of servitude lies ahead, Alainn finds a very different fate awaits her in the company of the strange, scarred recluse.

Urban Fantasy Bargains

I found some very interesting UF selections. I predict at least one of these will be fabulous! But which one!

Fantasy Cozy

This next one is a fantasy cozy. I thought the cover went rather too far into comic book territory, but the bear shadow is quite cleverly done. The premise is cute and intriguing. I’ve started reading it and it’s cute with very good characterization. It’s got quite a few comma issues so far (run ons and missing commas). But other than that, it’s a fun read so far. Definitely a cozy fantasy.

Bearly Awake

Edited to add I finished reading this–was very cute and enjoyable. Needs another editing pass–mostly run-on sentences and some missing commas or periods, but it’s a good little read. I liked it!

Bobby Tremain’s the first in his family to have a shot at college, also the first to head north of Louisiana. An early snow calls his Bear to hibernate a week before finals, but he needs to pass or he flunks out of Providence Paranormal College.

Lynn Frampton’s loneliness is almost more than she can take. She went to college on the other side of the country to get away from the persistent curse of unpopularity in a small town. Once at college, Lynn’s prickly personality has pushed everyone away yet again. But at least, she’s at the top of her class.

Bobby needs Lynn’s help to stay awake and pass his exam. She discovers she needs companionship more than she’d ever imagined. She’s all set to transfer to a school back home, but Bobby thinks she’s his mate. Can he keep awake long enough to pass, and more importantly, convince his love to stay?

Dream Eater

Koi Pierce dreams other peoples’ dreams. Her whole life she’s avoided other people. Any skin-to-skin contact—a hug from her sister, the hand of a barista at Stumptown coffee—transfers flashes of that person’s most intense dreams. It’s enough to make anyone a hermit.

But Koi’s getting her act together. No matter what, this time she’s going to finish her degree at Portland Community College and get a real life. Of course it’s not going to be that easy. Her father, increasingly disturbed from Alzheimer’s disease, a dream fragment of a dead girl from the casual brush of a creepy PCC professor’s hand, and a mysterious stranger who speaks the same rare Northern Japanese dialect as Koi’s father will force Koi to learn to trust in the help of others, as well as face the truth about herself.

SciFi and Fantasy Bargains

Super Starrella – A comic book superhero type book. I’ve read a couple of superhero books. They are quite quirky and can be a lot of fun. Some of them make fun of the whole superhero genre, which really started out as comic book heroes that were taken back to novel form. Most of the ones I have read are about male superheros for some reason (Example: Confession of a D-List Supervillain — quite fun, with lots of poking fun of the typical superhero; bit of a pastiche.) If you haven’t tried the “superhero” genre, this might be the time to try it–for 99 cents!

Teen superhero, Starrella, and her flying horse combat vicious villains in the skies of Atalanta.

The quiet summer before her freshman year turns frighteningly weird after Estelle Wright trespasses onto an Army base. Blown into the air and knocked unconscious, she wakes with a nascent superpower. Not to mention a winged horse with a snarky attitude and a mind of her own.

Back home in Atalanta, a serial killer is targeting the students at Goldman University. Before long she must juggle college classes with sneaking out of the house after dark to battle alien monsters. Estelle’s life is in danger, but who can she trust: handsome Captain Copper from military intelligence, or hunky Toby, the tough gangster with a motorbike? Both men have secret agendas, but falling in love is not in their plans.

Alien superpowers, quirky animal sidekicks, and a dash of romance enliven this thrilling adventure. Book 1 of the Secret Supers.

Next up we have a fantasy novel that sounds like it might be a good adventure:

Heirs of Grace by Tim Pratt

Recent art school graduate Bekah thought she’d hit the jackpot: an unknown relative died, and she inherited a small fortune and a huge house in the mountains of North Carolina.

Trey Howard, the lawyer who handled the estate, is a handsome man in his twenties and they hit it off right away—and soon become more than friends. Bekah expected a pleasant year to get her head together and have a romantic fling. Problem is, the house is full of junk…and siblings she didn’t know she had are willing to kill her for it.

More important, the junk in her new house is magical, she’s surrounded by monsters, and her life seems to be in mortal peril every time she ventures into a new room. As Bekah discovers more about her mysterious benefactor and the magical world he inhabited, she’s realizes that as tough and resourceful as she is, she might just be in over her head…

Heirs of Grace is a tale of family and magic, action and wonder, blending the strong heroine, cheeky humor, and dark fantasy that have become the hallmarks of Tim Pratt’s writing.

(The reviews mention there is bad language in this novel, just FYI.)

This next one seems like it was written with a lot of love and purpose:

Leandra’s Enchanted Flute Fourteen-year-old flutist Lee Ann Graves is a survivor–she has beaten cancer. But her greatest battle is yet to come.

The Carolina wren who has sung outside her window during the long weeks of chemotherapy reveals himself as Songcatcher. He knows Lee Ann’s real name is Leandra, and he transports her and her flute to a magical world that is dying because of a growing world-wide “canker.”

Leandra is restored to health and her flute transformed by what magic is left in the world. But as she searches for the source of the canker, the malignant forces take their toll, not only on the land, but on Leandra’s physical and mental well-being.

With the help of Songcatcher, other bird friends, and a very human prince, Leandra must find a way to heal the land she has learned to love before it is too late.

Fantasy Bargain: Dragons on Sale, 99 cents!

Wyvern Awakening – This is a limited time sale at 99 cents because it recently released. I have font envy over this one! That’s some awesome artwork in and of itself. The story itself is a paranormal fantasy with just a hint of romance (probably to come later in the series?) I particularly liked this line from one of the reviews: “The pixies are the best comic-relief I’ve read in a while.”

Book Description

When her parents were murdered eleven years ago, leaving her physically scarred during the event, dragon shifter Astri never learned the identity of their killer. That is until he appears to her in a nightmare.

The powerful Duke Jorgen not only rules the city of Rivenna where she lives, he is also responsible for her parents’ death and for the disability she’s had to bear most of her life. When the chance arises for her to compete to become Duke’s assistant, she realises this is her opportunity for revenge.
But everything in Astri’s world comes with a price. Can she overcome her disability and make Duke pay?

Dragon Bargain: 99 cents

Alight is on sale for 99 cents! It’s been a great week for Dragons! Or at least dragon books! What a gorgeous cover. I have cover envy over this one.

Love the blurb!

It’s not easy being one of the last living dragon shifters in London.

Two years ago, when the faeries attacked the mortal realm, all supernaturals were dragged into the open. Unfortunately for dragon shifters like Ember and her sister, dragons are still hunted by humans and supernaturals alike. Keeping a low profile is difficult with monsters roaming the streets, but Ember and her band of rogue shifters have managed to survive.

Until their oldest enemy, the supernatural-hunting Orion League, emerges from the shadows and captures Ember’s sister.

To get her back, Ember is prepared to walk into the depths of London’s magical underworld, even if it means kidnapping a lethal ex-hunter who’d like nothing better than to add her name to his kill list. His inside knowledge of the League is the key to saving her sister, but with their allies turning on them, Ember must choose who to trust or meet the same end as the other dragon shifters.

What am I working on?

I’m quite certain y’all are on the edge of your seats, wondering DAILY what book I might write next. I know I wonder about it all the time…probably a bad sign…but I’ve always written stories by the seat of my pants, never knowing where they might wander. At this point, it’s safe to say I’m working on Fairy Bite, the third book in the Dragons of Wendal series. Yes, that would be the series that was only going to be a short story. Then it was only going to be a stand alone novel.

Well, here we are with me working on the third and final book in the series. Fairy Bite, like the others, will be cozy/fantasy/romance/possibly young adult, but not too young. Notice how this series doesn’t like to leave out a single genre.

The book should be out late April/May 2017. I’ll commence complaining about editing chores on it any day now. Here’s the blurb to keep you on the edge of your seat.

Fairy Bite

Shunned and ridiculed ever since a fairy mistakenly bit her, Ally leaves her village in hopes that once gone, her family can resume their normal lives and be respected. She heads to Wendal, hoping the shifters there won’t care about the little problems associated with the effects of a fairy bite.

Before she is even halfway there, she discovers that the fairies may not be finished ruining her life. If she wants to leave Birk, she’ll first have to contend with the little people, a very ornery gargoyle, more than one prince and, of all things, an enraged dragon.

Bargain: Fantasy

This might be a cozy fantasy or it could be a thriller fantasy. All I know is that it sounds fun. Warlock’s All and Sundry. Fun cover too. I like it.

Welcome to Warlock’s Bar and Grille, where the Witches, Warlocks, Werewolves, Valkyries, Fairies, Vampire Roofers, and Trolls of New Oslo gather to eat, drink, gamble, and gossip. In New Oslo, anything can happen.

The owners of Warlock’s Bar and Grille, Warlock Abel Crochet, and his Witch-wife Mary Mistral, unintentionally attract the dark magic of a Black Fairy that puts Mary and their daughter Gay in danger.

With the help of the good, magical citizens of New Oslo, Abel must find a way to reverse the curse or he will never see his wife or daughter again.

Bargains of the Day

Romantic Comedy–this one sounds really great and they used the word “eclair!” It must be a great read!

Size Matters


Sam sometime speaks before he thinks. So what started out as defending Leah’s date-ability to her judgmental mother soon turned into having a fiancee! Now the plan is to keep up the fake engagement, stay “just friends,” and make Leah’s family loathe him enough to just call the whole thing off . But Sam has an insatiable sweet tooth, not only for Leah’s decadent desserts but her decadent curves. Her full lips. Her bright green eyes. Yep, things aren’t going quite according to plan. Now Sam has to convince Leah that he’s for real . . . before their little lie turns into one big, sweet disaster.

Looks like the books are all about deception today…

The Art of Deception is another bargain — intriguing!


Niko Hrabanic was once a famous swordsman. But after a scandal-laden departure from his last job at a royal court, he’s now hiding out in a rural inn, making himself useful to his attractive landlady in all sorts of ways that don’t actually involve paying rent…

…until a summons from the mysterious and dangerous White Library shakes up his life all over again. His landlady, it turns out, has secrets of her own. Now Hrabanic and Julia will have to confront both of their pasts – and if they’re going to have any hope of survival, they’ll need both Hrabanic’s sword arm and Julia’s magical training.

It’s time for them to become experts at the art of deception.

Book of the Year – April the Dragon

I’ll be doing a series of “Book of the Year” posts. This book was submitted by April the Dragon as the best book she read all year. Yes she lobbied to be able to list more than one. But, I was cruel. I limited it to one. So she submitted seven!! I had to let Leo pick one from the list. Junior argued with him over it too, so I was the tie breaker.

Maaaaybe I’ll ask for the top three at a later date! But here it is:

savingUprooted by Naomi Novak. April is in good company. This book has won a LOT of awards.

Fast and Furious is the Amazon movie collection of the day (7 movies).

(There’s a paddleboard on sale too–normally a thousand and something–half off!) Buy two. They’re small… 🙂
