Free book (DRM-free, multiple formats) - The Cross of Love [Vintage Romance]

The Cross of Love, book 1 in the Barbara Cartland "Pink Collection", is All Romance eBooks' Earth Day countdown selection for April 14th, courtesy of publisher M-Y Ebooks.

This is, as you've guessed, vintage reprint romance of the old school type and sports a mere 2 flames on the Heat Index.

Vicars and earls* and hopeful daughters abound, and if you are a fan of them, you will be glad to know that at least 24 more Cartland titles are or will soon be available via All Romance, some of them DRM-free, from the looks of it†.

Linkage to the product page, which says this is also the 641st novel by Cartland, and if you missed the previous day's 5-flame contemporary erotic romance, you can still pick it up along with 7 other freebies by the same (non-Cartland) author: Landing in Love.

Description
When Rena's father dies she is alone in the world, forced out of the vicarage that has been her home, with nowhere to go and no money. She seeks help at the large wooden cross standing in the nearby grounds of The Grange.

And there in the earth she finds three golden coins, which she hands over to the new young Earl of Lansdale. They form a friendship, the sweetest one of her life.

But her new happiness is threatened by Mr. Wyngate, a wealthy man determined to force the Earl to marry his daughter. There is something sinister about Mr. Wyngate, also another man who looks mysteriously like him, and seems to come and go without warning.

In the end, one man lies dead and another's heart is broken before Rena's faith and courage triumph. How it all happens is told in this exciting and romantic novel, the 641st by BARBARA CARTLAND.


* Fun fact: Barbara Cartland was Princess Diana's step-grandmother, or something, through her father the Earl's second or third marriage.

† Check for multiple copies of the book titles. Theirs to Eternity is available in "Secure Adobe eBook" or plain old "Adobe Acrobat/Mobipocket/ePub", depending on which one you click.

Can you get to their sister site OmniLit which also has the same book for free, but a considerably lesser proportion of the generally porntastic content that the UAE may be objecting to, or is that blocked as well?

That's too bad.

If you really want this book, you might want to think about asking a friend or relative elsewhere to do the checkout for you via your existing ARE/OmniLit account/open a new one in your name (no payment info required, just a billing address for their records).

I'm afraid all the Earth Day countdown freebies are time-limited specials good only for 2 days, and the offer on the Cartland book will expire at the end of April 15th, Central US time, at which point it'll go back to being 6 or 7 dollars.

Wow! Thank you so much!
I have been eyeballing these on Smashwords for a while now but at the price they are at I just couldn't do it. It's great to have one for free to sample!

Thanks so much! When I first started reading romances as a teenager I was hooked on Barbara Cartland. I haven't read any for years though, I hope this one holds up to my memories. I particularly remember that all the girls were about 18 and most had ridiculous names and the men were over 30. The phrase "tip-tilted breast" keeps coming back to me...


This girl's name is Rena, that's a lot less unusual than the ones I remember.
