Books Deals - English Edition #01

Rubriche di questo genere se ne trovano spesso nei blog letterari americani e inglesi; le ho sempre trovate molto utili dato che mi piace anche leggere in lingua. Se da un lato offrono l'opportunità al lettore di acquistare a prezzi bassi (oppure gratis), dall'altro permettono anche di scoprire nuovi autori, saghe e romanzi. Books Deals - English Edition non avrà una scadenza programmata, sarà quindi un appuntamento saltuario con cui vi farò conoscere alcuni ebook in sconto che potrebbero interessarvi. Non escludo che possa, più avanti, esserci anche un'edizione dedicata alle promo italiane eh; ad ogni modo per il momento mi occuperò dei romanzi in lingua.

The Slave {Free Men Book 1}
di Kate Aaron
Ed. Croft House
0,99 euro [ Amazon ] fino al 5 ottobre

At twenty-seven, Tamelik has been a slave more than half his life, having witnessed his family being murdered in front of him when he was just a child. Naturally submissive, although with a petulant streak, he can’t help but fall in love with the master who treats him kindly. Tam's dreams come true when his mistress walks out, leaving her husband behind. For six glorious months, he and his master get to be together. Then Tam is ordered to purchase another slave. He wants to hate Kai for being unruly and ungrateful. For being of the same race as the men who murdered his family. For being his eventual replacement in their master’s bed. But it’s hard to hate a man who cries himself to sleep, flinches at the slightest touch, and blushes beautifully when he’s kissed. Seducing Kai has suddenly become more challenge than chore, and with his master’s encouragement, Tam finds himself falling for his new companion. Except... nobody can be in love with two people at once, can they? 64,000 words.

0,00 euro [ Amazon ] - [ Kobo ]

Amelia grew up in a world of half-truths. She knows she's an Elder, but has no idea what that means. Her father reminds her daily that she must maintain control, but he refuses to explain why. Even worse, she's betrothed to the prince of the Immortals and doesn't even know his name. Finally breaking free to live a few normal years at a community college, the last thing Amelia expects is to find her best friend in a cheeky southern girl, or fall for a self-assured human who sees her for who she is, not what she will become. As she learns more about herself, Amelia realizes the line between love and duty is a thin one. As her power continues to increase exponentially and her questions are slowly answered, Amelia must make the ultimate choice. The question is, will her head win the battle, or her heart?

The Villa in Italy 
di Elizabeth Edmondson

0,99 euro [ Amazon ] - [ Kobo ] fino al 6 ottobre

An enchanting, tightly woven mystery as four troubled people find hope and redemption in the seductive sunlight of an Italian summer. Italy, 1958. None of the four strangers summoned to the magical Villa Dante on the coast of Liguria knew Beatrice Malaspina. Yet she named them in her will: Delia, an opera singer with no voice; George, a physicist haunted by the horrors unleashed at Los Alamos; Marjorie, a struggling detective novelist, and Lucius, a New York banker with grim memories of the war in Europe. They find a Paladian villa with enchanting frescoes, a mediaeval tower, and a garden that leads to the sea. The villa seems spellbound, with its tower locked and its fountains dry. Why are they there? Who was Beatrice Malaspina? … And what is the devastating secret hidden in her villa?

Qualcosa mi dice che la sottoscritta si fionderà su Bound by Duty, non sembra male dalla sinossi e voi, vi attira qualcuno di questi romanzi?

  1. Che carina questa rubrica! Utilissima, anche! *____*
    Vediamo... direi che mi ispira molto il libro di zombie! Dalla trama, ricorda un pò la serie tv "Z Nation"! :D

    1. "Z Nation" non l'ho mai vista ma, dato che tra un po' riprenderà The Walking Dead ho pensato che un po' di zombie extra non faccia male ^.^ Sono contenta che ti piaccia la rubrica!!

  2. Che rubrica interessante!
    Sono sempre curiosa di scoprire titoli inglesi e non, quindi la seguirò con molto piacere ^^

    1. Sono contenta che ti piaccia! Anche a me piace scoprire nuovi titoli che, chissà, un giorno potremmo pure vedere approdare in Italia :3 spero di riuscire a fare anche l'edizione per i romanzi italiani prossimamente
