Reading on a Dime: Books for Less Than My Daily Starbucks

Hey all! So I'm testing out a spin off of my Free Kindle eBooks posts. A Reading on a Dime post, listing books that cost less than my daily Starbucks habit. So I will be featuring GREAT eBooks that are less then $5.00, because I know we are all strapped for cash sometimes. I'm going to try for books whose price is always below $5.00 and not just on a limited time deal, but a for the foreseeable future deal. LOL.  I wont limit this to Paranormal Romance, but will also feature other genre's. After all who really sticks solely to one genre after all, not even me. Although, it is my Go To flavor. I'm not sure if I'll make this a weekly post like my Free post or if I'll just do it on a whim. I guess it all depends if this becomes a popular post. 
So PRETTY PLEASE with sugar on top let me know what you think!
Gena Showalter Reads:
Gena's publisher is actually pretty good about keeping her eBooks prices reasonable, just one more reason to love Ms. Showalter! 
Her Lords of the Underworld Bundle. Technically this is more then a Starbucks addiction; however, it's 3.5 books in one so at $9.99 its a STEAL! 
They dared to open Pandora's Box, and now must carry an eternal curse.

Some Random Cheapy Titles I have enjoyed:
Mystic Ink by Casey Wyatt for $4.99
Welcome to Mystic, Connecticut, where a Satyr owns the local pawn shop, a Minotaur serves the tastiest pizza in town, and the nearest gate to the Underworld resides in the alley outside a tattoo parlor.
Nix–Sea Nymph, talented artist and proprietor of Mystic Ink–just wants to run her tattoo shop in peace and quiet. Peace and quiet, however, are the least of her problems. Mortal corpses keep springing up in her alley like daisies. Hades is angry that the mortals’ souls are missing. And to top it all off, the human authorities suspect Nix of foul play. 
Before long, the supernatural police force takes an interest. They dispatch Agent Calder Quinne to investigate. His assignment is simple: determine Nix’s guilt or innocence by observing her daily routine. Instead, he’s faced with an uncooperative Nymph who resents his presence and evades him at every opportunity. 
Nix finds Cal far too attractive and a challenge to her self-imposed ban on relationships. She wants him out of her life as soon as possible. When Cal’s soul is stolen next and Nix wakes up missing memories of the evening’s events, even she starts to wonder if she’s guilty. Now, she has only two weeks to locate Cal’s missing soul, or he’ll be doomed to spend eternity as a Shade.

Special Offers by M.L. Ryan for $0.99
Hailey Parrish is quick-witted, irreverent, and hasn’t had a date in three years. She only wanted an eBook reader because her collection of paperbacks threatened to take over her small living space. Little did she know that the "special offers" that prompted the purchase included much more than a reduced price in exchange for a few ads. The device came pre-loaded with the essence of Sebastian Kess, an erudite womanizer with magical abilities from a parallel dimension. When she inadvertently releases him and he inhabits her body, she finally has a man inside her, just not in the way she imagined. And soon her predicament introduces her to yet another supernatural, the handsome could-be-the-man-of-her-dreams Alex Sunderland. Can Alex and Hailey find a way to return Sebastian to his own body, stay one step ahead of the criminals who want to keep him where he is, and not lose their sense of humor?

So what do we think of this post so far? I was thinking maybe featuring a different author or series and a couple of randoms each post. Or maybe the randoms are disjointed and need to be on their own post...
