    Default I Need Recs For Cheap Historical Ebooks

    So I've been shopping for my favorite genres, historical mystery and historical romance, but most of the ebooks seem to be as expensive as the print copies. Can anybody recommend some cheap (under $3) ebooks in these genres?

    I don't really read the WWII time period but anything before that works for me. I especially love Victorian, Regency, renaissance, medieval, and ancient world. I have a preference for mysteries but will read romance too as long as the setting is historical and someone is dead or about to be.

    I searched at BN. Put 0.0 in the search bar, then click on historical romance, and you will see many of them. I think I didn't see anything I was interested in, until I got to page 50 something..

    For readable nonfiction history try Winston Churchill's History of the English Speaking Peoples. Starting with The Birth of Britain and going on through three more highly readable books for two bucks each. Not romance or mystery, but might appeal.

    Gemini Sasson is a fine indie writer with three ebooks out so far, each only $2.99 on the Nook:

    They're not mysteries or romances, but they do have some romance in them :-) Two (there'll eventually be three) are about Robert the Bruce, and one about Queen Isabella.

    My own historicals are low-priced (or free!), but aren't mysteries or romances (though again, there's a hint of romance here and there).

    Ok, so I feel kinda dumb doing this but my book sounds like it would be something you may like. Its historical romance but has plenty of action and adventure. You can check out the synopsis, book trailer and first 2 chapters on my blog and its available for .99. bysharonnelson.blogspot.com
    My new book Pursuit of Midnight, a historic romance, now available on Barnes and Noble, Amazon and Smashwords. Check it out.

    Download some free samples of my historical/adventure romances to see what you think, but I believe you'll enjoy them. Right now 2 of my novels are 99 cents...SECRETS OF MIDNIGHT and WILD ANGEL, so you can't go wrong if you'd like to try something new.

    Wow, thanks for all the suggestions guys. These should keep me reading for awhile.

    And don't be afraid to plug your own books. That's just what I was looking for when I asked for recommendations - affordable indie authors.

    I enjoyed Suzanne Tyrpak's "Vestal Virgin." It is set in ancient Rome.

    Just out of curiosity, why no WWII? Not everything WWII is battles and mud.
    The Righteous: suspense/thriller - murder in a polygamist enclave, only $0.99.
    The Devil's Deep: A paralyzed man tries to solve his own attempted murder.
