Various bargains

I have a coupon code from Harlequin that I haven't posted before, and bunch of e-book deals.

 SPEND4E11 to Save $4 on ebooks at

Valid until 1/31/12
Must spend a minimum of $4 to qualify.

This puts most of their e-books ( with the exception of Luna and Harlequin Teen) at a price range between 0.05-3 dollar.  However, you must buy the books one at a time.  Otherwise, Harlequin discounts the total price.    Which is still a nice discount, but not as good deal as if you buy the books one at a time.

Oh, and this code will be the only main exception to my decision to not buy e-books.  I have several authors that I intend to buy.

So, the e-books.
Let's first start with Katie Macalister's fun historical romps.  Right now, they are available for 0.99 each, which is a bargain. 
BN Smashwords
Noble Intentions:

Noble Britton suffered greatly at the hands of his first wife, and he refuses to fall into the same trap again. This time he intends to marry a quiet, biddable woman who will not draw attention to herself or cause scandal. Gillian Leigh’s honest manner and spontaneous laughter attract him immediately. It matters little that she is accident-prone; he can provide the structure necessary to guide her.

But unconventional to the tips of her half-American toes, his new bride turns the tables on him, wreaking havoc on his orderly life. Perpetually one step behind his beguiling spouse, Noble suffers a banged-up head, a black eye, and a broken nose before he realizes Gillian has healed his soul and proven that their union is no heedless tumble, but the swoon of true love.
 I loved Noble intentions. It made me giggle. It is a bit over the top, but sometimes you need over the top.

Noble Destiny:

A poor widow, Lady Charlotte Collins returns to England eager to take her place in the ton, only to find herself shunned by all. Her one choice is to marry a groom with wealth, a title, and good looks, but Alasdair McGregor cruelly refuses to be the answer to her problems. In fact, she is forced by Dare’s obstinacy to take extreme action: the faulty codpiece that leads to this marriage, the wedding that is literally a circus. But nothing can stand between Charlotte and what she wants most: the love of her husband.
 I must admit, that I never finished reading this one.  The heroine annoyed me.   Maybe it was my mood.

The Trouble with Harry:

1. He is Plum’s new husband. Not normally a problem, but when you consider that Harry advertised for a wife, and Plum was set to marry his secretary, there was cause for a bit of confusion.

2. He has a title. Plum has spent the last twenty years hiding from the ton, and now Harry wants her to shine in society? Horrors!

3. He doesn’t know about her shocking secret. How is she going to explain about the dead husband who isn’t a husband…and who now seems to be alive again?

4. He’s fallen in love with her. And yet, the maddening man refuses to confide in her. For Plum knows the real trouble with Harry is that he’s stolen her heart.

I loved this one. A lot.  Like Noble Intentions, it was hilarious.

So for the indie bargains:
Indie phenomen Amanda Hocking offers Hollowland for free at Smashwords and Amazon ( most likely also free at BN).   I downloaded this one, primarily since I want to see what all the buzz is about.

Mindy Klasky have re-issued her paranormal romance backlist novel.  How to Not Make a Wish is the first book in the Wish series about a genie.  It is a funny paranormal romance that is available for 0.99 at Smashwords and Amazon.
She also offers the first book in her Jane Madison series, Girl's Guide to Witchcraft, for 0.99.  This is a paranormal chicklit.  I have it in paper somewhere, but I haven't re-read it in years. 
Eve Langlais has discounted The Geek Job to 0.99, also at Smashwords.  It is 2.99 at Amazon, and Allromance, which makes me suspect the price will go up soon.
Debra Webb have a lot of backlist available for 0.99 at  Smashwords.  
The one I plan to buy is Obession.

And for the Fantasy fans: A.A. Attanasio's Arthur Series is free at Kobo. Since the author have signed up for KDP Select, they will be gone very, very soon. So if you want it, pick it up.  ( I haven't read it, but I downloaded it since they sounded good).
