Governess Gone Rogue
Governess Gone Rogue by Laura Lee Guhrke is $1.99! This historical romance is part of the Dear Lady Truelove series and features a single parent hero with twin boys and a heroine who disguises herself. Readers say this is a great tender and sweet romance. However, be warned that this one is a very slow burn.
Dear Lady Truelove…
My twin brother and I need a new mother, though Papa insists he’ll never marry again. Must be nice, brainy, and fond of cats…
Lady Truelove may be London’s most famous advice columnist, but James St. Clair, the Earl of Kenyon, knows his wild young sons need a tutor, not a new mother. They need a man tough enough to make his hellions tow the line, and James is determined to find one.
Miss Amanda Leighton, former schoolteacher and governess, knows she has all the qualifications to be a tutor. And while female tutors are unheard of, Amanda isn’t about to lose the chance at her dream job because of pesky details like that. If Lord Kenyon insists on hiring a man, then she has only one option.
Jamie isn’t sure what to make of his new employee, until he realizes the shocking truth—beneath the ill-fitting suits, his boys’ tutor is a woman. An unconventional, outspoken, thoroughly intriguing woman. Despite Amanda’s deception, he can’t dismiss her when his boys are learning so much. Yet Jamie, too, is learning surprising lessons—about desire, seduction, and passionate second chances.
Acting on Impulse
Acting on Impulse by Mia Sosa is 99c! This is the first book in the Love on Cue contemporary romance series. I know some of my fellow readers love this series, especially the setup of this one. However, Sarah gave it an DNF. Have you read this one?
The first in a fun, flirty new series from Mia Sosa!
After a very public breakup with a media-hungry politician, fitness trainer Tori Alvarez escapes to Aruba for rest, relaxation, and copious amounts of sex on the beach—the cocktail, that is. She vows to keep her vacation a man-free zone but when a cute guy is seated next to her on the plane, Tori can’t resist a little harmless flirting.
Hollywood heartthrob Carter Stone underwent a dramatic physical transformation for his latest role and it’s clear his stunning seat mate doesn’t recognize the man beneath the shaggy beard and extra lean frame. Now Carter needs help rebuilding his buff physique and Tori is perfect for the job. It doesn’t hurt that she makes his pulse pound in more ways than one.
Sparks are flying, until a pesky paparazzo reveals Carter’s identity. Tori is hurt and pissed. She wants nothing to do with another man in the limelight, but she’s still got to whip him into shape. Can Carter convince Tori he’s worth the threat to her privacy that comes with dating a famous actor, or will Tori chisel him down to nothing before he even gets the chance?

Heir to the Duke
RECOMMENDED: Heir to the Duke by Jane Ashford is 99c! Several readers on Goodreads found the heroine unlikeable, but RHG gave this one a B+:
Delightful. Didn’t give me a good book noise, but engaging and fun and hey, we don’t get to go to Brighton a lot. Yay for new places!
Nathaniel Gresham, the handsome Viscount Hargove, lives a life devoted to familial duty. As his father’s eldest son, Nathaniel’s identity remains the “heir to the Duke of Langford.” But this quiet, restrained life changes the minute he marries sweet Lady Violet Devere.
Oppressed by her family all her life, Violet is longing for her marriage vows to be spoken. Though her arranged marriage to Nathaniel was not a match made for love, they’re both looking forward to the comparative freedom of married life. And Violet is determined to show Nathaniel how to enjoy it, both in and out of the bedroom.
The Bodyguard’s Prince
The Bodyguard’s Prince by Caroline Lee is 99c! This is a contemporary romance with a prince hero and a bodyguard heroine. Hello! Talk about a catnip setup. The Goodreads description and reviews mention that the sex scenes are fade to black and the book isn’t terribly explicit in terms of language or sexual content.
Crown Prince Alek of Aegiria is known for two things: his sense of duty and tradition, and being as drop-dead gorgeous as his brothers. His five younger brothers, whom he leads with a firm hand. They have a tendency to get into trouble, and without him, the whole palace would probably descend into chaos. So when their Queen mother surprises the princes with an announcement which will shake the entire nation, he knows he’s got his work cut out for him.
And then he’s kidnapped.
Lt. Toni Dryden, the Crown Prince’s bodyguard and not-quite-willing closest confidante, knows it’s up to her to save the stuck-up prince’s cute butt. After all, surely allowing her employer to be kidnapped is a black mark on her resume! But that’s the only reason she’s willing to move heaven and earth to save him…not because he’s gorgeous, or makes her laugh with his dry sense of humor, or because of the way he kisses…
But it’s going to take teamwork to get out of this mess, and Toni and Alek make a better team than expected. Too bad ex-cowgirl bodyguards are not princess material!
