It's raining books, my dears, courtesy of Harlequin's BIG 60th Anniversary Celebration.

The publisher (my publisher) is making a number of their books available for downloading absolutely free. This is a wide sampling of Harlequin fare and therefore a big opportunity for those of you who are romance novel devotees and for those of you who've never read one because you don't want anyone to catch you at it. Now you can. And no one will know. And it won't cost you a penny.

If you're not familiar with the romance genre per se, let me advise you now that, regardless of what you've heard, all romances are not the same. Each line meets certain reader expectations. Some are much more explicit than others and some, like the Love Inspired line, are considered "sweet" and inspirational. Some lines have elements of intrigue or suspense or the paranormal. Some deal more with relationships. Some are historical fiction, some are contemporary. ALL of them are love stories. I'm telling you all this so that you won't get your socks knocked off if you don't want to. If you do want your socks knocked off, there are books available for you, too.

This is the list of the free books by series line and by title and author:

Harlequin American Romance, Once a Cowboy by Linda Warren
Harlequin Blaze, Slow Hands by Leslie Kelly
Harlequin Historical, His Lady Mistress by Elizabeth Rolls
Harlequin Intrigue, Crime Scene at Cardwell Ranch by B.J. Daniels

The 16 free books (one for every series) will be available throughout 2009.

So click on the link above and enjoy. I'm going to go pout because none of my titles are on the list.
