Romance News Roundup: Outlander, Bailey, and Stacey Deal Alerts; Gone with the Wind; and More!

Welcome to H&H's brand-new daily news roundup! Grab a mug of tea and a scone and let's gossip about what's hot in the romance world right now.

—Deal Alerts*: Tessa Bailey's His Risk to Take is discounted (read: free) today at Amazon. Looking for a little holiday flavor? The Season for Love Boxed Set is only $0.99 at Barnes & Noble and Amazon, and features three holiday novellas by Shannon Stacey. (See what Sarah Morgan had to say about one of the novellas, Snowbound with the CEO, in her post about romances that feature snowbound heroes and heroines).

—Missing Outlander? There's a chance to catchup with the books while the show is on hiatus (April can't come soon enough!). The entire series is discounted anywhere from just $0.99 to $4.99. Start with book 1, Outlander for only $2.99 on Amazon, and get book 2, Dragonfly in Amber at Amazon for $0.99.* (Spoilers: Kiersten Hallie Krum weighs in on how the show writers should handle the 20-year gap in the series). As you open presents on Christmas morning, you can pretend Jamie Fraser is curled up next to you as original Outlander scores play over a 90-minute video of the clan's Yule Log burning in the fireplace.

Entertainment Weekly reminded us of some of the many reasons why Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara was the first 'ship for many of us. Gone with the Wind reached 1 million people when it debuted in Atlanta on this day in 1939. Happy 75th Birthday! 

—This Friday, you'll have the opportunity to not only see Downton Abbey's Dan Stevens on-screen again, but as a famous heartthrob, Lancelot! He'll be joining Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, and others in Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb. And Dan is over at Vulture talking about the movie, working with Williams, and what it was like to be a knight in shining armor.

—You might have picked up on the fact that we're big shippers here at Heroes and Heartbreakers. Entertainment Weekly reminds us of some of the Sweetest Shipper Moments of 2014. Agree or Disagree? Let us know!

*Please note that we have no idea how long downpricing or sales will last, so grab these deals while you can.
