Radio Silence by Alyssa Cole is $1.99 at most vendors! Carrie reviewed this book in April of 2015. Redheadedgirl also said, “Based on a rec from Courtney Milan, this is set during an apocalyptic event with a we-all-need-to-work-together and try not to go nutty from the isolation plot – it’s tight, tense, and really good.”
Arden Highmore is majorly cynical, but even she wouldn’t have predicted the end of the world–or at least the world as she knew it. One winter day, everything modern society has grown to rely on–electricity, cell phones, and, unfortunately, plumbing—stops working. Arden and her best friend, John, flee to his family’s cabin near the Canadian border. On the way there, they’re assaulted by scavengers, but saved by John’s hot brother, Gabriel, who takes an instant dislike to Arden.
The duo think they’ve finally found refuge at the Seong’s cabin, but things aren’t quite as peaceful as they seem: John’s parents are missing. Maggie, their teenage sister, resents Gabriel for treating her like a child. No one knows what, exactly, is going on in the outside world, and in the midst of all that, Arden and Gabriel are finding that there’s a thin line between love and hate, indeed.
How to Keep a Secret
How to Keep a Secret by Sarah Morgan is $1.99! This is more women’s fiction than straight up romance, though there are some romantic elements. I’ve seen this one recommended to people who have sisters or a sisterly bond. However, other readers mention this one isn’t as light as Morgan’s contemporary romances.
When three generations of women are brought together by crisis, they learn over the course of one hot summer the power of family to support, nourish and surprise
Lauren has the perfect life…if she ignores the fact it’s a fragile house of cards, and that her daughter Mack has just had a teenage personality transplant.
Jenna is desperate to start a family with her husband, but it’s… Just. Not. Happening. Her heart is breaking, but she’s determined to keep her trademark smile on her face.
Nancy knows she hasn’t been the best mother, but how can she ever tell Lauren and Jenna the reason why?
Then life changes in an instant, and Lauren, Mack, Jenna and Nancy are thrown together for a summer on Martha’s Vineyard. Somehow, these very different women must relearn how to be a family. And while unraveling their secrets might be their biggest challege, the rewards could be infinite…
Heartwarming and fresh, Sarah Morgan’s brilliant new novel is a witty and deeply uplifting look at the power of a family of women.
Once Upon a Highland Legend
Once Upon a Highland Legend by Tanya Anne Crosby is $1.99 at Amazon! This was originally part of an anthology, but I believe has been rewritten or at least contains additional content than the anthology version. You can grab all five books in the series for less than $9, but I think they have to be read in order.
A Scottish time-travel Highland romance, introducing Tanya Anne Crosby’s beloved Guardians of the Stone Series.
In the year 2014 Annie Ross has gone through her life a bit lost. She’s about to find herself misplaced in time as well–all the way back to 878 A.D.–where she will take her place as a guardian of the Stone of Destiny, and find a way to restore the faith of a powerful Highland chieftain. Will she win Callum’s heart as well?
Tanya Anne Crosby returns to the origin of the legend of the Guardians of the Stone—to a time when magic was a force and the Picts were on the brink of vanishing from the Highland tapestry.
A Rogue to Avoid
A Rogue to Avoid by Bianca Blythe is 99c at Amazon! This is a historical romance where a misunderstanding leads to marriage. Talk about awkward. Readers really seemed to enjoy the interaction between the hero and heroine. However, others found some things to be a bit unbelievable or inconsistent. It has a 3.8-star rating on Goodreads.
A Scottish scoundrel…
Gerard Highgate, Marquess of Rockport and the ton’s most aloof rake, knows better than to wed an Englishwoman, especially one as prickly as Lady Cordelia. But when his mother dies and he finds himself saddled with her debts, he needs a wife and he needs one fast.
An exacting Englishwoman…
Lady Cordelia knows that hastiness in husband hunting leads to mistakes. But when she visits an aristocrat to warn that his life might be in danger, he misinterprets her suggestion to flee to Scotland.
An unexpected elopement…
Most elopements are born of love, not misunderstanding. Cordelia and Gerard have already broken that rule, but perhaps they can still make their marriage one of love.
