    At a time when society conforms to the strictest rules and most proper etiquette, sixteen-year-old Camille Kennecott and her guardian, Dr. Bennett, live a most unconventional life. They hunt werewolves.

    When unwitting victim, Nathaniel Strider, wanders into one of their full moon pursuits, Camille and Dr. Bennett believe they have found a specimen for their study. Yet beneath the irresistible exterior, Nathaniel is transforming into a flesh-tearing monster, and as each experiment fails, Camille loses another inch of her soul to him.

  2. Soultaker by Bryan Smith. Price: $1. Genre: Horror, Thriller, Lamia, Dark Side of Teenage Romance. Rated 4.5 stars on 7 reviews. Lots of sex and violence and not recommended for kids.

    Beautiful. Sexy. Inhuman. Jake McAllister knows that his brother Trey’s new girlfriend is a bad influence, but he doesn’t know what Myra’s really after–Trey’s soul.

    Trey is just one of her new playthings, a pawn in her centuries-long game. One by one, Myra has seduced and enslaved the young men of the town.

    Can one man hope to battle such seductive evil?

  3. Desire Untamed by Pamela Palmer. Price: $1.99. Genre: Paranormal Romance, Romance, Dark Fantasy. Rated 4 stars on 21 reviews.

    They are called Feral Warriors—an elite band of immortals who can change shape at will. Sworn to rid the world of evil, consumed by sorcery and seduction, their wild natures are primed for release . . .

    Kara MacAllister’s quiet small-town life is transformed forever the night a powerful stranger rips her from her home, claiming she is the chosen one—the key to his survival.

  4. Need by Carrie Jones. Price: $1.99. Genre: Romance, Young Adult, Twilight Clone. Rated 3.5 stars on 191 reviews.

    “Jones masterfully blends paranormal fantasy, suspense, and romance to craft a new supernatural tale that is certain to appeal to fans of dark urban fantasy like Marr’s Wicked Lovely and paranormal romances like Meyer’s Twilight books. A likeable cast of engaging and interesting characters combine with a plot that grabs readers and refuses to let go.”

  5. The Naked Gardener by L. B. Gschwandtner. Price: $1. Genre: Gardening, Love Story, Women’s Fiction. Rated 4.5 stars on 18 reviews. 

    In a remote forest of northern Vermont, Katelyn Cross takes five women on a wilderness canoe trip where they hope to come up with ideas for saving their dying town. Although the river is not always what it seems and the women have not left their problems behind, a painting ritual creates a new way to look at the world – and themselves.

There are a lot of romance novel deals available for the Kindle. Actually, it shouldn’t be a surprise since romance is probably the single most popular genre in the Kindle Store. The popularity of romance novels makes sense given the privacy the Kindle offers – You can read books like Desire Untamed while the person in front of you thinks you’re reading Proust.

  1. Solid? Really?

    • How much cheaper than $1 would you like them?

      • I would expect them to pay me a lot to read this lot.

      • ha ha. What genres do you like?

      • Literary Fiction such as that found on this Amazon list,
        an occasional well-done thriller (The Girl Who. The Man from Beijing), classics (The Good Earth, The Scarlet Pimpernel but not the Scarlet Letter, Crime and Punishment, Kafka, The Street of Crocodiles, ), Sheer Fun (Life of Pi, The Painted House), Historic FIction, and non-fiction that reads like fiction (Washington’s Crossing). I must say that Franzen’s Freedom, at the top of the amazon link above, was a tedious and boring book. It has more 1 ratings than it has 5 ratings and more 1&2 ratings than it has 4&5 ratings at amazon (Pays to select carefully).
        There are occasional good selections on your free or inexpensive book lists.
        I had rather spend $9.56 for an audible book or $10-14 on K books like Cutting for Stone or The History of Love than waste my time on a free or cheap poor quality book.
        I keep two books at the time going – one audio, one Kindle. Audio for hands free when exercising, driving, sorting socks, etc. I have 503 (2-3 parts for each book) entries in my audible.com libray since my first download in Mar, 2003. On my Kindle 2 delivered the first day of availability, I have 53 archived and 20 in a read folder since that function was available.
        Guess I have to admit to being a middling snob when it comes to book quality.

      • OK. Will keep that in mind and see if there are any deals on books of that sort in future. They don’t get discounted as often.

  2. Trying to decide between kindle & nook color….being swayed by barns &noble because you can go in & they will take the time to demo. Went into another store & asked them to show me how to use the Kindle and was told it came with instructions..needles to say I just walked away shaking my head. Therefor leaning toward the nook.
