I noticed that Harlequin.com offered free e-books from Dec. 25th until January 1. Who can pass up free books, even though these books only exist as electrons on a screen. I had downloaded Adobe Digital Editions for my laptop a bit ago to read another book. I had an easy way to read the books. I jumped at the chance to have new books at my disposal.
The first one . . . predictable (but isn't most romance?), and I wanted more from the accessory characters. Cal, for instance, contained numerous chances for elaboration. I would have enjoyed that. But, as a 12 chapter book, enjoyable for a holiday read.
The second one? Haven't gotten past the first few pages, but that's because a certain husband is on call and a certain sister left the country for a holiday in Singapore!
I missed the deadline for the third book, forgetting that I now live in the Central timezone. Alas, I can handle missing one book. I downloaded the fourth just minutes ago. I'm so loving having an indulgence . . . romance novels.
