~Book Bargains~ Bargain Priced Contemporary Romance

There is a plethora of book deals this gift-giving season. I've compiled a list of clean contemporary romances that are $3 or less. All book descriptions are taken from the linked e-Retailer page. Prices and ratings are accurate at the time of this post and subject to change.

Snarky and Sweet: A Romantic Comedy about Twins, Texas, and a Big Red Diamond by Susan Denney 
eBook $2.99 (4.3/5 stars)

Resistance is futile.

Shy, demure, reserved Lurleen couldn’t possibly be more different than her gregarious, sassy, sarcastic twin, Lurlette. One is your kind stereotypical schoolteacher and the other is a man-eating adventuress. Whether they take you cruising in a Miata or busting out of a kidnapper's shack on a John Deere, you’re in for one riot of a ride. The novel moves you to compassion then spins you into comedic circles.

Lights and Shadows (Oregon in Love) by Bonnie Blythe
eBook $1.99 (4.7/5 stars)

Chiaroscuro—the treatment of light and shade to give an illusion of depth—is stock in trade for Marc Dorin's work as a photographer. When he meets the silk and steel Julia Wilcox, it's as if one of his sepia-toned prints comes to gently-hued life. But will the shadows from her past drain all the color from their future together?

A Christian romance

How Sweet It Is by Bonnie Blythe
eBook $1.99 (4.6/5 stars)

Embrasser means to kiss in French. Delphine D'Arleux, traveling in Belgium for a candy-making class, doesn't expect to have the word demonstrated to her, especially by a stranger. Brad Larsen, an avowed chocoholic, knows he behaved badly by kissing the pretty French girl, but he can't quite regret his actions. Can he show Delphine that a longing fulfilled is sweet to the soul?

(Christian romance)

Bonnie Blythe has several more titles all under $3. Visit her Amazon author page for the full list.

Life on the Edge by Jennifer Comeaux
eBook $0.99 (4.7/5 stars)

Nineteen-year-old Emily is new to pairs skating, but she and her partner Chris have a big dream–to be the first American team to win Olympic gold. Their young coach Sergei, who left Russia after a mysterious end to his skating career, believes they can break through and make history.

Emily and Chris are on track to be top contenders at the 2002 Winter Games. But when forbidden feelings spark between Emily and Sergei, broken trust and an unexpected enemy threaten to derail Emily’s dreams of gold.

Fateful (Book #1 in the Fateful Series) by Cheri Schmidt 
eBook $2.99 (4.0/5 stars)

A huge fan of Jane Austen, Danielle hopes to find her own Mr. Darcy when she leaves Colorado to attend art school in London. Of course she knows it's silly to wish for that, naive even. But she's met enough males who lacked respect for women, a growing trend it seemed. And at nineteen...well.... However, on only her second night there she gets lost and is threatened by a stalker who proves to be immune to her martial arts training. Before she is completely overpowered, she is then saved by Ethan Deveroux.

While Danielle does find the romance she seeks in Ethan, he's no Mr. Darcy. Her hero is held by a spell which fractures their chance at a happy ending. During the day Ethan is closer to mortal than immortal and can date her like any other man. Yet, as the sun sets, the powerful magic of an ancient curse returns and the evil of that spell is revealed. When that magic begins, Danielle's fairytale romance ends because Ethan Deveroux is a vampire.

Arms of an Angel by Linda Boulanger
eBook $1.99 (4.2/5 stars)

Being wealthy and beautiful doesn’t promise an automatic ticket for happiness. Sometimes you need the angelic touch of someone who needs you as much as you need him… Sometimes it’s hard to tell where one set of wings ends and the other begins.

Claire is alluring, sensual – called an angel by some, though the woman she’s become is anything but celestial. Her heart is filled with pain so deeply embedded she doesn’t want to live any longer…until fate puts her into the hands of the most virtuous man she’s ever met; a man who needs someone like Claire to help him piece together the shattered bits of his own life.

Linda Boulanger has several $0.99 romantic short stories to her name as well. Check out her Amazon author page for the full list.

Kissing Kendall (Maritime City) by Jennifer Shirk
eBook $2.99 (4.8/5 stars)

Kendall Grisbaum is finally taking charge of her life—pouring her heart into opening a new bakery business and even allowing her best friend Georgie to play matchmaker for her. Trouble is, the one guy she secretly wants is Georgie’s older brother, Brad, who is decidedly off limits.

Brad can’t seem to get his little sister’s best friend out of his mind. He and Kendall used to be close friends, too, and as a local policeman, Brad can’t help but play protector, looking out for Kendall. When he offers to help her renovate her new bakery space on the side, their friendship—and their attraction—flares back to life.

Amid the temptation of doughnut muffins and blueberry cobbler, a new temptation draws them both closer. Can they take a chance on love when it means risking their friendship, even when not doing so risks everything?

I will share more $3 or less clean contemporary romance deals as I find them. Happy reading!!
