Barnes and Noble Free Fridays: The Seduction of Lady Phoebe by Ella Quinn and the Buddha Finger app

Spread the love

Tee hee this week’s free selection is a real bosom heaving sexy romance with British nobility and of course a scoundrel with a heart of gold!  Just the stuff that I read all through high school to my great disappointment that I never found my own prince in the Iowa farmlands of my hometown!

Today’s Free Fridays book selection is The Seduction of Lady Phoebe by Ella Quinn – a classic Regency romance full of wit, playfulness and a sizzling chemistry.
Phoebe Stanhope tries very hard to be a true Lady of noble standing, but she’s just having too much fun participating in sharp-witted banter and riding her purebred horse over the barrows and through the valleys of 18th-century England. She’s even managed to avoid a rather large list of potential suitors – that is, until she meets Marcus Finley and her world gets turned upside-down completely.
Marcus can’t deny the spark between him and Phoebe, but he has a dark past that he’ll do anything to avoid sharing with her – even keeping the secret of a betrayal that years ago turned Phoebe’s heart cold against the idea of love. Can Phoebe maintain her independent spirit while falling for Marcus, and can he convince her of his present worth even while his past continues to haunt him?

Today’s Free Fridays app selection is Buddha Finger by Marmalade, an exciting action game app that will bring out the warrior in you! In a fun twist on the kung-fu gaming genre, Buddha Finger transforms you into a young martial arts fan who meets a sensei of the highest order  – one who teaches you the art of fighting so that you can save your Interpol agent brother from a shadowy crime underworld.


Roundhouse kick your way through 61 levels of Pick up n’ Play gameplay with an engaging storyline and awesome visual effects – plus leaderboards to show off your kung-fu skills to other martial arts hopefuls.

Each week, we ask our featured author to recommend a book or author that you may want to check out. Since authors are such passionate readers themselves, we thought you might like to find out what they love to read, too! Here’s what Ella recommends:


If you’ve never read Mary Jo Putney’s books, you’re missing out! She is one of my must-read authors. Her latest release, book #5 in her Lost Lords series,Sometimes a Rogue, is a wonderful example of her storytelling abilities. Her writing is elegant and her historical accuracy is spot on. Once you start, you’ll be hooked forever.


Rob had no idea what he was getting himself into when he volunteered to rescue Sarah who had saved her heavily pregnant twin sister from an anti-British terrorist group and was taken instead. The sizzling, sensual tension between these two strong-willed people as they race across Ireland to escape was done with a skilled hand, and their happily ever after was all one could wish for.


Not only is Mary Jo a great writer—having won several RITAs and other awards, including Romance Writers of America Life Time Achievement Award—she is a fantastic person as well. I had the privilege and the pleasure of meeting her this past summer, and she immediately offered to help me solve a problem I was having.
