"Boomerang Bride is one of the best romance novels this reviewer has read in a long time. Top Pick."
-RT Book Reviews



When Matlida leaves her Australian home to wed Barry—the man who swept her off her feet online—she doesn’t expect to be jilted by an internet con man. Now that Barry’s out of the picture, she’s stuck in a small Wisconsin town without a friend in sight.


Along stumbles Marc, who’s begrudgingly in town for his annual family visit. He sees a bride in desperate need of a groom, but he’s not quite sure he’s the man for the job. Matilda isn’t convinced of Marc’s suitability either. But strange things happen when two strangers are stuck together in a small town with lots of time to kill. 


Fiona Lowe’s next irresistible contemporary romance, Saved by the Bride, is available for pre-order now!


Free Fridays Recommends


Each week, we ask our featured author to recommend a book or author that you may want to check out. Since authors are such passionate readers themselves, we thought you might like to find out what they love to read, too! Here’s what Fiona recommends:



My love affair with romance fiction had begun and Jane Austen, with her clever wit and insight into the human condition remains a firm favorite and a comfort read when required.

Great books guys! 

thanks for all!!

I would also recommend a free e-book that's available every day of the week, Riverbreeze, Part 1 by Ellen E. Johnson.  It's an historical fiction taking place in the 17th century on the James River, Virginia about two brothers marrying twin brides and their life and adventures.  Four stars on Barnesandnoble.com.

Folks, complaints about the Free Friday selection DO NOT BELONG in the review thread for the book. Every time I see one of those comments, I'm flagging it as an inappropriate/off-topic comment, and I urge others to do the same. If you must complain, please put the comment here, not in the book review thread. I just wish ppl who do that could get banned from the forums.

by Moderator dhaupt on ‎02-08-2013 09:23 AM

OMG, thanks Jeremy and B&N, I saw this review in my copy of RT magazine and have been wanting to read it, well now I can.


What a great thing to start a Friday with not only a free selection but a free romance and with that cover and RT's endorsement it's gonna be a win win!!!!


I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend

those of you in the Northeast who are expecting superstorm Nemo please stay safe, stay warm and stay home. Know that you will all be in my thoughts.



by javabird on ‎02-08-2013 09:27 AM

BTW, If you don't like the Free Friday selection, you always have the option to actually BUY the books ot the type you prefer.
