Suddenly One Summer by Julie JamesDeal Alert: Julie James's contemporary Suddenly One Summer is on sale for $1.99 in e-book at Amazon | Kobo | Barnes & Noble | iBooks | etc.* (Psst: Her novel It Happened One Wedding is also $1.99 today.) As H&H blogger Scarlettleigh writes in her First Look at the book: “James is taking a break from her FBI/U.S. Attorney series with Suddenly One Summer, but don’t worry, all her trademark characterization is still very much in evidence—competent, professional heroine who knows how to stand her ground, dealing with failure-is-not-an-option sexy hero. Plus her previous characters do make some cameos.”

Deal Alert: Jo Goodman's American historical More Than You Know, Book 1 in the Hamilton Family series, is $.99 in e-book at Kobo | Barnes & Noble | iBooks | Amazon | etc.* Goodman's novel The Devil You Know made our bloggers' list of the 26 Romances of 2016 You Don't Want to Miss.

Deal Alert: Rachel Lacey's first full-length Risking It All series contemporary, Run to You, is $1.99 in e-book at Barnes & Noble | iBooks | Amazon | etc.* In her First Look at Run to You, H&H blogger Scarlettleigh writes: “Readers who are looking for a delightful love story with wonderful, genuine characters, won’t want to miss this one!”

Fresh Outta the Oven

—If you watch Arrow, The Flash, Jane the Virgin, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and/or Supernatural, you can breathe a little easier: All seven shows have been given early renewals for next season! No word yet on fellow CW shows The 100, iZombie, or The Originals.

Outlander star Caitriona Balfe, talking to EW, says Jamie and Claire's season 3 (Voyager) print-shop reunion has it all: “excitement, the tentativeness, the nerves, everything,” adding that she thinks it's “really beautiful.” So get excited, and look for weekly Jamie/Claire-focused Outlander recaps when the show returns this spring!
