Tell Harlequin

I saw the listing in the back of several recent Harlequins about joining their reader panel, but I never got around to doing so. Then I read a post from Dani on Confessions of a Romance Book Addict about how she had received four free books to read and keep in a short time period after joining the panel.

I joined today. You, too, can join by going to and completing a relatively short survey about basic demographics (gender, age, race) and reading habits.

Let the e-mail surveys and free books start arriving soon!

Did you notice that the day on which the events unfold is actually the same day that Diana, Princess of Wales, died? Does knowing that make any difference in how you see the story? I wouldn't have made the connection if I hadn't just watched some of the coverage of the Royal Wedding. To quote the author, he chose this particular day because his novel is about how ". . .everyday miracles of life and death go unwitnessed in favor of celebrity and sensati…
