  1. Wow! That’s a lot of great books!!! I’ve read several and LOVED them! Off to check out a few more 🙂

    1. Jemi, me too! Such a great variety of books and I can’t believe they are either free or on sale! The big problem is going to be trying to decide which one to read first!

  2. Hi Jean!

    Just want to let you know, Killer Cupid is FREE this weekend- today April 20 and tomorrow April 21st on Amazon

    I hope your readers will take advantage of this great Earth Day promotion 🙂

    1. That is fantastic, Maeve. I have Killer Cupid on my ereader and can’t wait to read it. I LOVE your book’s premise. It’s made me sooooo curious. 🙂

      Happy Earth Day!

  3. Jen

    I think I have read all but three of these…All are great!

    1. Wow! Jen, you get a prize! The voracious reader prize. Woot, woot!

      Thanks for reading.

  4. There were a few I couldn’t get, but I have several more that will keep me happy!

    1. Oh yeah, the Canadian thing, Darke. Doesn’t that suck? You *might* be able to find some of these for free either on or Kobo.

      I guess in the end, free health care makes up for not being able to get all the free ebooks out there. 😉

      Have a good weekend, Darke.

      1. Actually, it was more that they didn’t have epub formats. Ah well. 🙂 I still got some good reading material.

        1. Uggghhhhhhh yes, I have had that problem too, Darke. I like to try Smashwords and Kobo for those, but all books aren’t always there. 🙁

          I finally caved and bought a Kindle to hang out with my Kobo (battery is trying to die on me) but now I run into the ‘it’s not free in Canada issue.’ There’s always something! But it has definitely improved since I bought my first ereader years ago.

          1. I did something to my Kobo. Nothing loads, *cries* I’m reading off my laptop now. 🙁

          2. Darke: Oh nooooooooo! I did that to my Sony. Totally pooched it. So I took over my hubby’s Kobo. Mwa-ha-ha!! Have you tried a hard restart? There might be a reset button. Maybe?

          3. A hard restart? Never heard of that. I don’t know if there is a reset button. You would think there would be. I hope there is.

          4. A hard reset is where you can poke a teeny button with the end of a paperclip. But I don’t see where to do that on my Kobo and I just discovered you can do a soft reset. Here’s what I found (I hope it helps as reading on a laptop kind of sucks!):

            “To initiate a factory reset using the Home button and the power slider both of the following conditions must be met: 1) release the power slider while holding down the Home button, and, 2) push and release the power slider quickly. If the factory reset is successfully initiated, the LED will turn red. If unsuccessful with the first attempt try again until you get a red LED.”

            I don’t know if that will snap your Kobo back to working properly, Darke, but it is worth a try.

  5. Linda

    Yeah! Got books….me so happy! BOOKS MY DRUG OF CHOICE!! 🙂
    Thanks Jean!

    A happy camper!!!!!


    1. Linda that is AWESOME!! Yay! And I LOooooVE your drug of choice. (It’s mine, too.)


  6. Thanks for including my Masters in your Save a Tree, Read an Ebook promo! It’s free all the time at MOST places and the intro to my series about wounded warriors in need of strong women to help them heal and love again. 🙂

    Just announced it on my FB page, because I’ve been running ragged, but hope to send lots of readers over to check it out!


    1. Kally, thanks for being a part of this! I love a strong hero and an even stronger heroine. Thanks for the help getting the word out about these great books.

      Have a great weekend.

    2. Lorraine

      Kelly’s books ROCK!!! Seriously you have to read them!!!!!

      1. Lorraine

        Darn spellchecker -that’s Kally

      2. Lorraine, Kally’s books certainly say “Hello hotness” whenever I look at the cover!

        1. Lorraine

          That’s the truth! But when you read them they take on a life of their own. I just love her books!

          1. Thanks for showing the love, Lorraine! Glad you are enjoying the Rescue Me series–and my hot, kinky Marines. 🙂


        2. Thanks, Jean! Glad you’re enjoying the series! I plan to write it for the rest of my life. That’s the nice thing about realistic Romance–the heroes and heroines are never “done.” And you know these characters have some major things to work on!


          1. That is awesome, Kally! Just keep it going!

  7. Thanks for the new list of free ones.

    1. You bet! I hope you enjoy them. 🙂
