"Irish Moon" by @amberscottbooks
At some point, I'm simply going to run out of masculinity points here. If you haven't followed what Bestseller for a Day is doing, the first thing you need to do is head over to their website to check it all out. Once you've done that, you need to come right back here for me to tell you all about their next offering, Irish Moon. Go ahead. I'll wait. Really.
Now that you've gone and seen that, as a reader, you're getting the best of all worlds here (stupendous novels for dirt cheap, as well as chances to win prizes AND help out the noble cause of indie writers), I can now talk to you about the sexy hotness that is Irish Moon.
Okay, at the risk of sounding truly girly, this romance is SWEET! It's got an amazing locale, awesome characters (that you actually care about, instead of just lusting after), a tight plot and MAGIC! That was my favorite part. Seriously, though, I joke about losing man point and stuff, but I will read anything that's well written. And this just is. Yes, I am a man and I read paranormal romance. No, I don't talk about it much with my guy friends. Sue me.
The other thing that I love about this novel is that Scott doesn't drag it down into the mire. She keeps the romance about what it should be about--character, chemistry and growing intimacy. Not just about sex. Sure, the sex is there, but it's not SEX with all caps, if you know what I mean. If I want that, I'll read erotica. Or, you know, Penthouse Forum or something. Seriously.
So, if you love good romances with a hint of magic... If you love Ireland and history... If you love supporting indie authors, please go buy this book on Wednesday, March 16th. It's only $.99 on that day, so... SCORE! You can purchase the novel here.
Also, if you're an author or even just a reader who likes to keep up with the publishing industry, you MUST go check out Carolyn McCray's (@craftycmc and @writingnodrama on Twitter) article that just went up on the Digital Book World site here. It's all about how to better sell your books on Amazon.com!
