[Free eBook] An Unexpected Wish by Eileen Richards [Historical Romance]

An Unexpected Wish by Eileen Richards is the 1st novel in her A Lady’s Wish series of f/m historical romance, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Kensington’s Lyrical Press imprint.

The series is set during the Regency, and linked by the theme of a character making a wish on “the fabled Fairy Steps” (no other paranormal/supernatural elements).

[Free eBook] Under Her Skin by Adriana Anders [Contemporary Romance]

Under Her Skin by Adriana Anders is the 1st novel in her Blank Canvas series of f/m contemporary romance, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Sourcebooks’ Casablanca imprint.

The series is linked by a theme of tattoos and survivors of various traumatic experiences, and the author has received a prize for best unpublished contemporary manuscript for this book from two romance writers’ associations, according to her bio-blurb. This story stars a woman who is on the run from a dangerous situation, and the rough-exteriored but surprisingly gentle ex-con who longs to help her. NB: Apparently this one tackles themes of domestic abuse, in case that’s something you’d rather not encounter in your leisure entertainment reading. YMMV.

Offered in most regions worldwide through April 6th as the publisher’s monthly 1st-in-series introductory selection, available at multiple retailers.

[Free eBook] 38+ titles from Diversion Books [Fantasy, Mystery, Thriller, Literary, Romance, Etc.]

In what I suspect is a pricing error, at least 38 ebooks are free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Diversion Books, who reprint a lot of previously-published backlist.

These include works by Golden Age science fiction author Henry Kuttner (one of his rare vintage mystery novels); award-nominated mystery authors Scott Mackay, Louise Ure, and Anthony Bruno; bestselling thriller authors such as Andrew Neiderman, James Phelan, and Newton Thornburg; old school romance authors such as Vanessa Royall, Lisa Bingham, Patricia Bray, and many more.

It’s a mix of mostly romance and mystery/thrillers, but also some literary humour, chick-lit, fantasy, and other genres represented as well.

This is currently available for who knows how much longer, only @ Amazon (this is an automatic search link that will pull up everything by the publisher listed as free; switch the country code in the URL to see whatever’s free in your region)
