Free books (Kobo, Borders) - 2 Dorchester Romance, 1 Pulp & more [some US-only]

While perusing the Borders.com site, I came across a number of freebies, some of which turned out to also be free to Canadians at Kobo.

Two Romances from Dorchester Publishing:

Distracting the Duchess, historical romance by Emily Bryan.

A widowed duchess and aspiring artist becomes embroiled in an international intrigue when the man she thinks is her latest nude model turns out to be a spy for Queen Victoria.

Fiancé at Her Fingertips, romantic comedy by Kathleen Bacus.

Tired of blind dates and misbegotten match-ups, Debra's about to learn that the bogus boyfriend-in-a-box of "Fiancé at Your Fingertips" is not so bogus and he's the best thing she's ever unwrapped.

One Golden Age Pulp Fiction Short:

Branded Outlaw, pulp fiction by L. Ron Hubbard. Yes, *that* L. Ron Hubbard. Praise Xenu!

Lee Weston is blamed for rustling cattle, which he's almost lynched for. But nothing will stop him from finding his father's killer . . . until he's framed for shooting the father of the only girl he's ever looked at more than once and now the whole town is after him!

20+ assorted duplicate freebies (most expired in other stores), US-only

The Borders people also still have most of the Dorchester 20 promo freebies (mostly romance, but a few thrillers), which have since gone back to full price at Kobo, see this page for the descriptions (deals there expired), since the Borders pages give you nada.

You can pick up most of them via Borders.com and successfully "Add to Your Library" from this special Dorchester promo page, while it still lasts.

Via the "Free for a Limited Time" link on Borders.com's sidebar, you can pick up one or two not listed on the above Dorchester page. However, there are a couple which will give you a "technical error, cannot add to library at this time" pop-up. You'll have to directly search from within the Borders Desktop app and "download" to your library if you want Diana Gabaldon's Outlander, Alan Jacobson's thriller The 7th Victim, the three listed above, and anything else from that collection.

I don't know if it's the standard modus operandi for downloads done via the app, but those particular stubborn freebies will only show up in your Borders.com ebook library "as open ebook", no ePub download option like you get with the ones you can successfully add via the website.

So for best results, try adding via the website first, just in case.

Also, I take back everything I ever said about Sony having the worst reader software/shopping site combo. Borders sucks so much more in both aspects that it surely wins the no-prize.

Happy (if slightly frustrated) reading, everyone!
