Well, phooey. We knew Valentine’s Day was only here for one day, then gone for another year…BUT our PRP VALENTINE’S EXTRAVAGANZA is still going strong through FRIDAY!

Do you have a favorite TRUE romantic story? I’ll tell you mine—though it might not seem all that “romantic” to some. I mentioned I just celebrated my 38th wedding anniversary on the 10th of February to my hubby, Gary. When we met, we were in college and he invited me to a stock car race—I’d never been to one before and was THRILLED. Long story short, a knife fight started and Gary broke it up. Then, he sat down and put his arm around me and asked, “Are you alright?” Well, how could I let HIM get away? I knew right then I was going to marry him—and I did.

While you’re thinking of your romantic story, here are MORE FREE AND .99 BOOKS to jump over to Amazon and stock up on through FRIDAY of this week (the 17th) so don’t wait. And be sure to check previous posts for other great reads you might be interested in—all FREE or .99!

Ready for another FREEBIE? Take a look at Diana Tobin’s story, KISSING COUSINS!

Augusta Thompson has lost everything—her parents, her husband, her home…and now, her only child. Then, a legal notice arrives asking her to travel across the country to claim an inheritance from an unknown relative—a grandmother she never knew she had. There’s only one catch: she must share her grandmother’s beautiful old home with handsome Olympic contender Charles “Web” Webster—the only other person named in the inheritance—for one year.

Web finds it difficult to believe Augusta never knew about her family in Maine, the family Augusta’s mother turned her back on. As time goes by, he realizes Augusta was mentally and emotionally abused by her ex-husband, and her heart and soul are wounded.

Can Augusta learn to trust in others once more and make a new life for herself? Can Web’s love for Augusta heal her broken heart and allow them a future together? Will the conditions of the inheritance prove to be a help or hindrance for these KISSING COUSINS?
