I never say no to a free book

Harlequin is giving away 16 titles. All of them ebooks, all of them free -- free! -- and not that free-if-you-join-the-club free but serious-free. Just click and download free. No account needed.

Now, I don't know if I'm ever going to read a NASCAR romance novel or one where the word "faith" appears in the description -- I quickly get sick of the characters offering a prayer to the Lord like that's a detailed description of what's going through their minds! what, precisely, are they praying for? how are they wording that prayer? is it more fear or faith that makes them utter it? now those are details that make characters real and human -- but they're releasing one title for each (or most) of their lines so in their theory there's "something for every woman." And lord knows that after all my grad school work I need a little fluff reading.

In the end a few K of storage costs me very little, and I never say no to a free book, no matter how stodgy or fluffy it is.

Highly Recommended
