Free and Discounted Romance Novels

Happy Weekend, Fellow Readers!

Here are some historical romances at great prices that I've found on Amazon. I hope you enjoy the selection!


Blurb:
Never, in all her twenty years of life, had Star Berkley seen the likes of Sir Edward. He was so damned arrogant, so damned fashionable, and so damned insolent -- and he was the most handsome man she had ever come across!

Sir Edward, for his part, could do without the pert country airs of a chit like Miss Berkley. She was impish, plain-spoken, and obviously not his sort, which was just as well, for it seemed she had stolen the heart of his closest friend.

Then Sir Edward stumbled onto a most sordid secret: the Berkleys’ estate teetered on ruination, and brother and sister were being brutally blackmailed by a vile den of thieves.

Sir Edward meant to save them, if Star would allow him, and he was a determined man, determined that she would allow him ... everything.

Blurb:
A kiss is just a kiss ... or is it?

George Bennett-Jones has just inherited his uncle's viscountcy. His politically astute mistress, Josephine, insists he find a bride -- and she has one in mind for him.

Lady Elizabeth Carlington runs a charity to help the wounded find employment. Wanting to be married by Christmas, she dreams of the day the Earl of Trenton will ask for her hand.

When George spies Elizabeth dancing with the earl, it's love at first sight. But the auburn-haired beauty is convinced she'll marry the earl, even if his kiss has left her feeling as if she were kissed by her best friend's dog!

When Elizabeth mentions the unfortunate kiss during the ball's supper, George implies there is an art to kissing, innocently offering to replace her poor first impression with a proper kiss. Elizabeth accepts his offer at the next ball. George is more than happy to accommodate her. His kiss has the daughter of a marquess so stunned, so amazed and so aroused, she makes one more request of the viscount. Knowing he has only one night to court the woman who has captured his heart, George sets out to prove himself.

Will the evening of pleasure he has planned for Elizabeth convince her to accept his hand in marriage? Or simply leave her with a vivid memory of what she will be missing should she accept the earl's marriage proposal? The lessons of a mistress prove invaluable in The Kiss of a Viscount.

Blurb:
England, 1815

The eldest of three sisters, Lady Alexandra Chase has always done what was expected of her. But when the man she's loved since her girlhood returns from a long spell abroad, she quite suddenly finds herself hoping the fine lord her brother has picked for her won't propose. She decides that if he does, she'll quite improperly turn him down--that is, until the man of her hopes and dreams informs her he has no intention of marrying her.

The last time Tristan Nesbitt saw Alexandra, he was a common man with no hope of ever wedding the daughter of a marquess. Seven years later, he's now Lord Hawkridge, which should make him eminently suitable for the woman who long ago captured his heart. But a dreadful scandal has tarnished his name in England--a scandal so horrid that marrying Alexandra would ruin not only her flawless reputation but her whole family. For Alexandra's own good, he must fight his relentless desires and stay far away...
