Lady Maggie is the dignified, illegitimate daughter of the Duke of Moreland—and he’s eager to get her married off. Soon though, Lady Maggie’s personal letters go missing, and her reputation is in danger until they're safely returned. Enter the handsome and talented investigator Benjamin Hazlit.


Though Maggie would love to pursue the dashing Hazlit, she worries that the risks to her—and consequently to him—may not be worth the reward. Can their mutual passion overcome her fears?


You’ll find more romance and intrigue in the other books in Burrowe’s Duke’s Daughters series.


And in case you missed it: Dan Brown's blockbuster thriller, The Da Vinci Code featuring the prologue & first chapter of the upcoming Robert Langdon adventure, Inferno, is free for a limited time.

Today’s Free Fridays App selection is one of our favorite - and messiest - NOOK Apps: Fruit Ninja - Puss in Boots.


This action-filled game combines one of our most popular app franchises with the irresistible hero of the hit animated movie, Puss in Boots. Who better to slice & dice his way through a series of fruit-mutilating challenges than the swashbuckling bandito Puss?


Fans of the classic Fruit Ninja will recognize the gameplay, updated with new challenges and Puss in Boots graphics. It's fun for all ages, and better yet, it's FREE for a limited time. Once you've mastered Fruit Ninja - Puss in Boots, the classic version of Fruit Ninja awaits your impeccable blade-work.



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 Grace recommends:



Cora and Guy's tale is not your typical Regency drawing room drama, but rather, a story of high stakes, adventure, and the price paid by those who lived, fought and loved passionately in a world of clashing armies and ideals in flux. Tracey Devlyn's debut is a terrific read, and the start of a wonderful series.

A big Thank You to those who post free books, not for the lists so much, but for the kindness of giving pleasure to others. Just like those who look forward to a cozy weekend reading inside, I'm looking forward to a wonderful weekend on my porch swing lost in a book. Have to enjoy our few short weeks of spring. In July I will be jealous of everyone who will be in their backyard and it will be well over 115° here.

"Purchased" the free app, but it's not downloading to my Nook color, so I guess it is only for the newer tablet.

Repeating the thanks to the whole group that include additional books to check out. 


This week was one where I was a bit disappointed about the featured freebie book, so I knew that wasn't one I would get.  Not a big deal - I know that everyone has different tastes and it is nice to have as an option.

However still found 2 or 3 books in the Spec, Butterfly, and EReader lists.  One was a freebie this we from an author that I discovered via last year's featured freebie.  So I am way happy about that. 


Have a great weekend.
