Deal Alerts

—Jude Deveraux's 1981 novel The Velvet Promise, part of the Montgomery family saga, is on sale for $1.99 in e-book at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBookstore, etc.* Anna Bowling touches on the Montgomerys in her 2013 article “All in the Family: Family Sagas in Romance Novels.” Keep in mind this is an '80s romance, though, and that you may well find an old-school alphahole hero in Gavin Montgomery.

Maya Banks' erotic romance Brazen is discounted to $.99 in e-book for the moment at Barnes & Noble, Amazon, iBookstore, etc.* For the latest recommendations in erotic romance, browse Tori Benson's Best Bets for Feburary, including new releases from Kit Rocha and Anne Calhoun.

Tasty Morsels

Harlequin Romance has released a heartwarming short film chronicling a girl's discovery of her first romance novel on her mother's bookshelf—a story familiar to many of us. Check out the full video on Harlequin's Facebook page.

—Fifty Shades Darker's latest cast additions include Robinne Lee as Ros Bailey (vice president at Christian Grey's company) and Fay Masterson as Mrs. Jones (Christian's housekeeper), while Fifty Shades Freed (the trilogy's third movie, which will film back-to-back with Darker) has welcomed aboard Brant Daugherty as Sawyer (Ana's bodyguard). Fifty Shades Darker will be in theaters on February 10, 2017.

Swoonies Update: The battle for Swoonworthiest Couple is down to FOUR couples in four subgenres! Make your choice between the top contemporary couple (Laura Kaye's Caden/Makenna) and the top historical couple (Tessa Dare's Maddie/Logan), as well as between the top paranormal couple (Nalini Singh's Raphael/Elena) and the top romantic suspense couple (Darynda Jones's Charley/Reyes). No pressure, but you'll be deciding who makes it to the championship round!

*We don't know how long deals will last, so get 'em while you can!
