Free Book Friday (The Late Edition)

I know, I know. Free Book Friday was supposed to be last week. But we had a special event to commemorate our vacation. So it got pushed out to today, tardy, but meaning well.

To go with this month's theme of being late, I'm giving away two books that you may have missed when they came out. Its one of the frustrating things about category books - in a month, they're gone! Sure, you can pick them up on Amazon for a few months and now you can get them as an ebook, but some really great books completely drop off the radar after a year or so. Well, this month, I'm giving one lucky commenter a second chance to read some titles that might've slipped through their fingers the first time.

The Guardian by Linda Winstead Jones

Dante Mangino was a man committed to one thing: his job. A top security specialist, he had no ties to anyone, just the way he wanted. Falling for a client was strictly taboo. But his latest assignment was about to remind him that even a man like Dante had a weakness. And her name was Sara Vance.

Mayor of her hometown, Sara needed protection against a stalker. But having the man who'd loved her and left her prowling around on guard simply wouldn't do. Dante was too intense. Too...tempting.

And that would make her stalker very, very angry....

Indecent Suggestion by Elizabeth Bevarly
There has been a mistake!

When best friends Becca Mercer and Turner McCloud go to a hypnotherapist, they expect to be cured of their smoking habit. Clearly the treatment hasn't worked, because they're both still smoking. Oh, and now they're having sex. Lots and lots of sex. And it's definitely changing things between them.

Lovers come and go, but friends? Is she ready to sacrifice her best bud for the sake of a little - okay, a lot - of seductive satisfaction? And yet, how can she possibly resist such an indecently sensual suggestion?

Can men and women have sex and still be friends?
To enter this month and win these books, comment with the phrase "Better late than never!" Are there any books you loved but can no longer find? Did your best friend in 9th grade borrow your worn out, well-loved copy of Skye O'Malley and move to Arizona without giving it back? Enter to win!

These two books sound great. I don't think I've read any of Linda Winstead Jones's books. Elizabeth Beverly, I read several Desires in the past.

I gave out several older books by Nora Roberts, Sandra Brown, Elizabeth Lowell and Diana Palmer to my two SIL's to get them into the romance genre. I never received any of them back! I'm going to ask them for them!

Ever since I found BookMooch on the internet, I haven't had problems finding books I otherwise might not ever get.

I wish I still had my old copy of Skye O'Malley from the early 80's.
I loaned it to someone and never had it returned.

Better late than never
Both these books sound wonderful and I have read neither.

And right now I cannot think of any book that I might be looking sad, the mind is a terrible thing to waste.

Have a great weekend everyone.

I missed both of these when they were released. That short shelf time is the only thing I don't like about catagory romance.

I like the sound of thes books1
I rarely re-read, so I haven't looked for any older books I've given away.

I feel this way all the time. LOL. It seems I have tons of books that I haven't read and keep buying more. Go figure. I can't think of any I haven't gotten back. I was going to do a review on a book one time and realized it was a few years old. I'm sooo behind. :)
