Handsome Hero plus Feisty Damsel equals one fun afternoon read!

This is an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon at the beach or on the deck. Enough plot twists and turns to keep it interesting, without requiring deep thought to follow the action. Characters with a sense of humor accent the romance. I highly recommend this book for a ...
This is an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon at the beach or on the deck. Enough plot twists and turns to keep it interesting, without requiring deep thought to follow the action. Characters with a sense of humor accent the romance. I highly recommend this book for a light read. And then loan it to a friend. She will thank you.

    People, please don't penalize the writer with one star because someone is a plot spoiler or you don't like the genre for the freebie. The appropriate place to complain is on the blog.

    Beware of Trolls

    I've come to the conclusion that trolls are having a lot of fun complaining each Friday about "plot spoiler" reviews on Free Friday books. According to them, any description of the plot at all -- a standard feature of real book reviews -- is a "spoiler" demanding punishment of the author with one-star reviews.

    Hint to reasonable people: Don't bother feeding the trolls. Just leave five-star reviews to make up for the trolls' vandalism of review pages.
