Today’s Free Fridays selection—Married in Haste by Cathy Maxwell—is a clever, fast-paced historical romance with a fun twist.


While beautiful young Tess has always had the pick of the litter when it comes to male suitors, a family misfortune is set to change her matrimonial prospects for the worse. Now that her brother has gambled away the family money, Tess must find a worthy husband before London society catches wind. Luckily a dashing war hero has just proposed, but can Tess accept in good conscience, knowing that she’s willfully deceiving her new beau?


Expect another steamy adventure in Maxwell’s  upcoming The Devil’s Heart—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 Cathy recommends:


I like charm and wit in my romance and Elizabeth Boyle's Love Letters from a Duke is brimming with those qualities. The story has ruses, masquerades, and misunderstandings enough to make any romance reader stand up and yell, "Bravo!"  Or take joy in whiling away a Friday evening with a glass of wine, a bubble bath, and the witty game of love between Felicity and her duke as they enjoy what can rightly be called "the devil's own tangle." Plus, as a bonus, a portion of the book's proceeds go to support Autism Speaks.

Thanks to all of you who do all the leg work. I got some good reading material that I probably will not be able to finish before the next Free Friday.

website i came across (i think from a post here) that has a TON of free books to download.  they are in EPUB format so you have to save it to your nook in file form but then it is in your library.  i think i have downloaded almost 100 tonight...

Just got my Nook today, for a 4days late for my seventeenth birthday, so far I am loving it. I just came across the site from a link that my friend sent me and I'm really looking forward to my first free Friday publication. Wish me luck with my new device!
