Envy by J.R. Ward

Deal Alert: J.R. Ward's paranormal romance Envy is $1.99 at Kobo | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | etc.* Fall for a fallen angel in the third novel of Ward's spin-off BDB series. “The third book of the series, Envy, is the story of a character introduced in Lover Unleashed: Thomas “Veck” DelVecchio. The angels' side wins, but not without some serious costs.”

Deal Alert: Julie James' contemporary romance Just the Sexiest Man Alive is $1.99 at Amazon | Barnes & Noble | iBooks | Kobo | etc.* Tough-as-nails attorney Taylor Donovan never lets a man rattle her, and she's not about to start when she's assigned to coach People's “Sexiest Man Alive,” Jason Andrews, for his next big legal drama.

Deal Alert: Susan Mann's romantic suspense novel The Librarian and the Spy is $.99 at Barnes & Noble | iBooks | Kobo | Amazon | etc.* Librarian Quinn Ellington likes to solve mundane mysteries for library patrons and get lost in spy novels. However, when her latest research project entangles her in the middle of an international arms deal and she meets handsome “insurance” agent James Lockwood, anything is possible. Read dangerously.
