[Free Book Friday] October 13, 2017

Every Friday I will post a free Ebook that I have found somewhere out in the Internet wilds, that I myself have found interesting, and added to my reading list.



This week's free ebook, Love, Chocolate, and Beer, is the first novel in the Cactus Creek romance series by Violet Duke!
Romance has met its most unlikely match-up…
In his defense, she’s addictively easy to incite…and plain impossible to resist.
Beloved local brewmaster Dani Dobson is beyond riled up. It’s bad enough the new shop owner in town comes locked and loaded with both a distractingly rugged charm and sexy flashing dimples, but the whole only-in-the-movies variety of romance he’s selling—the kind her world has been crushed by before—is really doing a number on her allergy to unrealistic clichés. What’s worse, he’s created an annoyingly clever ad campaign that dubs ‘beer joints’ like hers as the “cave where romance goes to hibernate.” The nerve of that man.
Combustible chemistry or not, damn it, this means war. The stakes…very likely, her heart. Luke Bradford is a chocolatier on a mission. After moving his chocolate shop, and newly single life, to the quirky town of Cactus Creek, Luke wants nothing more than to devote all his energy into making his business a success—by taking the romance market by storm. But his grand plans get thrown for a loop when he locks horns with the feisty beer-brewing beauty next door who calls his ‘romantic idealism’ a load of fairytale bull. Soon, driving the woman sparking nuts becomes another wickedly fun priority he simply can’t get enough of.
Things that grabbed me about this series:
  • stubborn business owners
  • chocolate
  • the male being the more romantic type
This free ebook is currently available on Kobo for free for a limited time. So hurry up and grab yours while you can!

Let me know if you pick it up, and if not why. What things do you look for in your books?

[Teaser Tuesday] October 10, 2017



Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, originally hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!

Just do the following:

1. Grab your current read.
2. Open to a random page.
3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
4. Share the title and author too so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!

My sister and I will each share our teaser of the week with you below.

Gwenyth:
The athletic ass of my neighbour's smart-alek prodigal son was not what I wanted to see at seven a.m. Yet there he was, clad in tight red running shorts, sporting a grey-flecked two-day stubble, disappearing inside to fetch his mum, his very steps springing with excess energy. And there I was, feeling far from energetic, standing on Davina's dorrstep, wishing I hadn't knocked. Because the last time I'd seen that bum it was bare, jigging up and down atop the buxom curves of a naked British cabinet minister. Eight million views on YouTube, and counting.

This teaser is from Gone Tomorrow by Felicity Price. This is an intriguing romantic suspense novel featuring an older main character. I love this idea! Have you read an amazing romance lately? Let me know in the comments. I am always looking for recommendations.

Would you kill to save the ones you love? Penny Rushmore returns in a fast-paced sequel to two earlier bestsellers. Funny, entertaining, romantic, occasionally dark and filled with suspense, Gone Tomorrow is about an engagingly vulnerable New Zealand woman approaching retirement who feels too old to find love again, while rushing between the demands of an elderly father, a son caught in a terrible marriage, and a daughter who wants a supersize wedding. But then a beloved little girl goes missing. Penny joins the search with her cyber-fraud detective neighbor and follows the trail via the dark web to the Viagra smugglers of India, learning the hard way to make the most of today because it could all be gone tomorrow.
Ally:
But I whisper like a sea in the horse's ear and take a step back from the roving flashlights. One step away from all of them, one step toward the ocean.

This teaser is from The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater.
It happens at the start of every November: the Scorpio Races. Riders attempt to keep hold of their water horses long enough to make it to the finish line. Some riders live. Others die.

Puck Connolly is different. She never meant to ride in the Scorpio Races. But fate hasn’t given her much of a chance. So she enters the competition — the first girl ever to do so. She is in no way prepared for what is going to happen.
At age nineteen, Sean Kendrick is the returning champion. He is a young man of few words, and if he has any fears, he keeps them buried deep, where no one else can see them.

This is a fabulous book! Gwenyth has already read this. It may even be the focus of a future Sister vs Sister post! Maggie is a favourite author to both of us. Enjoy!

[Free Book Friday] October 6, 2017

Every Friday I will post a free Ebook that I have found somewhere out in the Internet wilds, that I myself have found interesting, and added to my reading list.

This week's free ebook is actually a complete romance series!

When a young woman finds herself thrust into another time, a life begins to unfold which she could never have imagined. As her destiny reveals itself, Gwynne begins to adapt to the idea of a life with two Alphas. But she quickly realizes that her world will be one filled with danger, passion and conflict. And she wouldn’t trade it for anything.

This is the complete Sought by the Alphas serial by Carina Wilder, five books compiled into one Boxed Set. The next in series is Seeking Her Mates.

Things that grabbed me about this series:
  • werewolves/shifters
  • time travel (Outlander anyone!)
  • the name Gwynne, because it's so close to my own name and has the magical sound to it

This collection is currently available on Kobo for free for a limited time. So hurry up and grab your set while you can! I already got mine!

Let me know if you pick it up, and if not why. What things do you look for in your books?

My sister and I will each share our teaser of the week with you below.

Gwenyth:
Lata surveyed the scene from the edge of the chaos. Her father-in-law had pulled some hefty strings to obtain this most coveted corner spot, where it should've been relatively quiet. Only it wasn't, thanks to her son's chubby-cheeked bride, who bawled so loudly Lata couldn't decide if she wanted to slap the child's face or pull her close. What kind of girl-child cried like that? As though she had the right to be heard?
This teaser is from A Bollywood Affair by Sonali Dev. It is the first book in the Bollywood series. This is one of the first romance books I have picked up in a long time, as research for my own romance novel in progress. Have you read an amazing romance lately? Let me know in the comments. I am always looking for recommendations.
Mili Rathod hasn’t seen her husband in twenty years—not since she was promised to him at the age of four. Yet marriage has allowed Mili a freedom rarely given to girls in her village. Her grandmother has even allowed her to leave India and study in America for eight months, all to make her the perfect modern wife. Which is exactly what Mili longs to be—if her husband would just come and claim her.

Bollywood’s favorite director, Samir Rathod, has come to Michigan to secure a divorce for his older brother. Persuading a naïve village girl to sign the papers should be easy for someone with Samir’s tabloid-famous charm. But Mili is neither a fool nor a gold-digger. Open-hearted yet complex, she’s trying to reconcile her independence with cherished traditions. And before he can stop himself, Samir is immersed in Mili’s life—cooking her dal and rotis, escorting her to her roommate’s elaborate Indian wedding, and wondering where his loyalties and happiness lie.

Heartfelt, witty, and thoroughly engaging, Sonali Dev’s debut is both a vivid exploration of modern India and a deeply honest story of love, in all its diversity.
Ally:
And suddenly Mason was Mason again. The armour of the Valkyrie was gone. But somewhere deep inside, she could feel the Valkyrie's rage, like still-burning coals glowing silently beneath the ashes of a banked fire. Waiting to spark to life again... So she could burn down the world.
This teaser is from Transcendent by Lesley Livingston. It is the third book in the Starling series.
LOVE CONQUERS

On a storm-swept terrace high above the streets of Manhattan, Mason Starling holds the fate of the world in her hands as her beloved Fennrys lies bleeding at her feet, his life hanging in the balance. The ancient Norse prophecy of Ragnarok stands poised on the knife edge of fulfillment. Mason’s transformation into a Valkyrie—a chooser of the slain and the one who will ultimately bring about the end of the world—is complete. Still, she remains determined to thwart her father’s apocalyptic desires. Whatever is to come, it won’t happen because of what the prophecy foretold, or what Gunnar Starling has planned, or what the fates have already decided. What happens next will be up to Mason and the Fennrys Wolf. The world had better hope they haven’t reached the limits of what their souls and swords can survive.

Perfect for fans of Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series, and set in the same universe as Lesley Livingston’s much-loved WONDROUS STRANGE trilogy, with roots in Greek, Roman, Norse, Egyptian, and Celtic myths and legends, this thrilling conclusion to the acclaimed Starling trilogy is filled to the hilt with sweeping adventure and soaring romance.
This is an amazing series! Both of us have read the first two books and Gwenyth hopes to be able to read the final book in the series soon. It may even be the focus of a future Sister vs Sister post! We both highly recommend it, and anything by Lesley Livingston to be honest. Enjoy!
