Free (nook/Kobo/HQN) More Than Words series [Biographical Romance]

Harlequin have (once again) added to their set of freebie series of "Bestselling authors & Real-life heroines" featuring their authors writing mini-romances based on the lives of women who've inspired them.

These are multi-store freebies and should show up pretty much elsewhere eventually. Since they'll likely be adding more later at some point, I'm just going to do brief single line links with the overall series blurb for the descriptor.

As of 2014, there are now at least 9, and I'll be using this thread to continue to round them up and update for new store links from now on.

And this is now the (retrospective) selected 3rd (non-repeat) ebook thread of the day.

Because it's pretty nice of Harlequin to keep these things free for so long, paying forward the inspiration that these notable women have given to their writers.

Enjoy!

Series Description
We all have the power to effect change--we just need to find the strength to harness it. With every good deed done, and helping hand offered, we are making the world a better place. The dedicated women selected as this year's recipients of Harlequin's More Than Words award have changed many lives for the better, through their compassionate hearts and unshakable commitment. To celebrate their accomplishments, bestselling authors have written stories inspired by these real-life heroines.

The newest three:

(NB: for now the direct HQN links are glitchy and say the books can't be purchased yet, but I'm sure they'll fix that eventually)
