Grave Mercy by Robin LaFeversDeal Alert: Robin LaFevers' YA fantasy/historical romance Grave Mercy, Book 1 in the His Fair Assassins series about girls raised in a convent to become assassins in medieval Franceis only $.99 in e-book at Barnes & Noble | Amazon | iBooks | etc.* Yours truly may be a tad obsessed with this series—I named Dark Triumph's couple, Sybella/Beast, one of my favorite pairings of the year in 2013.

Deal Alert: Helena Hunting's Clipped Wings sequel, Inked Armor—which continues the story of tattoo artist Hayden and his client Tenleyis on sale for $1.99 in e-book at Amazon | Barnes & Noble | iBooks | etc.* Are you a fan of book series that follow the same couple through multiple books, or are they in danger of lingering too long for your tastes?

Deal Alert: Larissa Brown's futuristic Viking romance Beautiful Wreck is discounted to $2.99 in e-book at iBooks | Barnes & Noble | Amazon | etc.* H&H commenter VanesGirl describes Beautiful Wreck as “a time-travel romance that takes place in the wonderful landscape of rural Iceland” and named it one of her best reads of the month in July.

Happily ever after, part 2? Enchanted, the movie-musical that made us laugh and won our hearts, is getting a sequel! The sequel will take place ten years in the future with Giselle (played by Amy Adams) making decisions that may put her happily ever after into jeopardy. Uh-oh. Let's hope not! But if it does, we've got our favorite fairy tale romances that never let us down.
