“An engaging, not-to-miss debut with characters that stayed with me long after I finished reading.” - Robin Bielman, USA Today best-selling author

Start your year off with a good book! Today through January 9th, pick up Letters for Scarlet by Julie C. Gardner for only $0.99. (Sale price available in the U.K. as well.) With more than 100 five star reviews on Amazon, this novel should be on your 2018 must-read list.

Twenty-eight-year old Corie Harper is visited by a ghost—in the form of a graduation letter she forgot she wrote. Although she spent a decade burying that desperate girl and her regrets, each page resurrects the past, dragging Corie back to the tragedy that tore apart her friendship with Scarlet and shattered their lives.

Scarlet, who hasn’t seen Corie since, is a powerful San Francisco attorney and has managed to hide her heartbreaking past. Until now. Pregnant with a baby she’s terrified to have, Scarlet must face the demons that haunt her: the mother who pushed her away, the best friend whose secret destroyed their friendship, and the tragic night that left her wishing she were dead.

This poignant page-turner, with surprising twists, explores the strength of friendship and the power of forgiveness.

Let A Perfumer's Secret by best-selling author Adria J. Cimino transport you to France... for  only $0.99! The novel is on sale in ebook format today through Dec. 1 on Amazon.

Perfumer Zoe Flore travels to Grasse, perfume capital of the world, to collect a formula: her inheritance from the family she never knew existed. The scent matches the one worn by her mother, who passed away when Zoe was a teenager. Zoe, competing to create a new fragrance for prestigious designer Cherone, believes this scent could win the contract—and lead her to the reason her mother fled Grasse for New York City. Before Zoe can discover the truth, the formula is stolen. Philippe Chevrefeuille, the enigmatic competitor who makes her heart race, is the only one who can help her find it. But Zoe is in no mood for romance, or at least that's what she tries telling herself.

Philippe knows that winning the Cherone fragrance contract is the way out of his mid-level perfumery job. And he has the ambition and ego to make it happen. Until Zoe enters the picture. In an instant, he's under her spell and losing his grip on his own creativity. If Philippe hopes to win, he must keep Zoe from finding the missing formula. But can he betray his own heart?

The pursuit transforms into a journey of self-discovery as each struggles to understand the complexities of love, the force of pride and the meaning of family.
