• in the deep that drowns

    RECOMMENDED: Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant is $2.99! This is a daily Kindle deal and the price is being matched. Elyse and I thoroughly enjoyed this sci-fi horror novel. We reviewed the book together and finally settled on a B. We loved the cast of characters, but found the ending disappointing.

    New York Times bestselling author Mira Grant, author of the renowned Newsflesh series, returns with a novel that takes us into a new world of ancient mysteries and mythological dangers brought to life.

    Seven years ago, the Atargatis undertook a journey to the Mariana Trench to film a “mockumentary” that brought to life ancient sea creatures of legend. He was lost in the sea with all hands. Some have called it a hoax; others have called it a maritime tragedy.

    Now, a new crew has been assembled. But this time they are not to entertain. Some seek to validate their life’s work. Some seek the biggest hunt of all. Some seek the truth. But for ambitious young scientist Victoria Stewart, this is a journey to discover the fate of her lost sister.

    Whatever the truth is, it will only be found beneath the waves.

    But the secrets of the deep come at a price.

  • How to fail at flirting

    How to Fail at Flirting by Denise Williams

    How to fail at flirting by Denis Williams is $3.50! This appeared in a previous Hide Your Wallet. Warning for this one, as the heroine has left an abusive relationship and plays a major role in the romance, with the heroine overcoming her trauma.

    A sassy to-do list and a crash course in flirting turn the world of an A-type achiever upside down.

    When her shaky department lands on the chopping block at the university, professor Naya Turner’s friends convince her to ditch her scruffy cardigan for a night on the town. For one night, her attention will be diverted from her demanding job and she will be faced with a new kind of to-do list. When she meets a charming stranger in town on business, he presents the perfect opportunity to check off items on her list. She lets the guy buy her a drink. Check. She tries something new. Check. An untethered connection. Check…almost.

    Jake makes her laugh and challenges Naya to regain her trust, which was shot down by her abusive ex-boyfriend. Soon she is flirting with the possibility of a more serious romantic relationship, except nothing can be that easy. The complicated threads surrounding her relationship with Jake could destroy her career.

    Naya has two options. She can protect her professional reputation and return to her old life or she can flirt with the unknown and stay with the person who makes her feel like she’s finally living again.

  • World of Wonders

    Aimee Nezhukumatathil's World of Wonders

    World of Wonders by Aimee Nezhukumatathil costs $2.99! This is another daily Kindle deal. What a coincidence, since I just mentioned this in the last Get Rec’d!

    From beloved award-winning poet Aimee Nezhukumatathil comes a debut work of nonfiction: a collection of essays about the natural world and how its inhabitants can teach, support, and inspire us.

    As a child, Nezhukumatathil called many places home: the grounds of a Kansas mental institution, where her Filipina mother was a doctor; the open skies and high mountains of Arizona, where she walked with her Indian father; and the cooler climates of western New York and Ohio. But no matter where she was transplanted to, no matter how strange the setting or how forbidding the landscape, she was able to turn to the ferocious and amusing creatures of our world for guidance.

    “What the peacock can do,” he tells us, “is remind you of a home that you will flee and return to all your life.” The axolotl teaches us to smile, even in the face of lack of kindness; touch-me-not plant shows us how to shake off unwanted advances; the narwhal demonstrates how to survive in harsh environments. Even in the strange and unpleasant, Nezhukumatathil finds beauty and kinship. Because he is so in awe: he requires us to be curious enough to look past distractions in order to fully appreciate the gifts of the world.

    Warm, lyrical, and beautifully illustrated by Fumi Nakamura, World of Wonders is a book of sustenance and joy.

  • A dance with a duke

    A Dance with a Duke by Tessa Dare

    A dance with a duke by Tessa Dare is $1.99! This is Dare’s first book stud club trilogy and features a horse-breeding hero. Readers say this one is slow at first, but recommend turning it on! There is a marriage of convenience aspect that reviewers really enjoyed.

    In One Dance with a Duke—The first novel in Tessa Dare’s delightful new trilogy: Secrets and scandals tempt the irresistible rogues of the Stud Club to gamble everything for love.

    Spencer Dumarque, a handsome and reclusive horse breeder, the 4th Duke of Morland, is a member of the exclusive Stud Club, an organization so select that it only has ten members; however, membership is within the reach of anyone lucky enough. And Spencer has a lot of that, along with an obsession with a prize horse, a dark secret, and now a reputation as the dashing “Duke of Midnight.” Every night he chooses a lady for an impressive midnight waltz. But none of the women catches his interest, and none outdoes the duke, until Lady Amelia d’Orsay tries to your luck

    In a moment of desperation, the unconventional beauty claims the duke’s ball and unknowingly steals his heart. When Amelia demands that Spencer forgive her rogue brother’s debts, she never imagines her playful wits and words will lead to breathless passion and a steamy proposal. Still, Spencer is a man of mystery, perhaps connected to the shocking murder of the Stud Club’s founder. Will Amelia lose her heart in this reckless gamble or will she win eternal love?
