Yorkshire: Richard and Rose, Book 1 FREE from BooksOnBoard and Kindle 8/23-9/5
Samhain Publishing will be giving away Lynne Connolly's Yorkshire at the BooksOnBoard and Kindle ebookstores starting Sunday, August 23 through September 5, 2009.
A passion they never expected-a mystery that could cost them everything.
Richard and Rose, Book 1
Rose Golightly is a country girl who thinks her life will continue on its comfortable course, but a series of events changes that for good. On a visit to the ancestral estate of Hareton Abbey, Richard Kerre, Lord Strang, enters her life. A leader of society, a man known for extravagance in dress and life, Richard is her fate. And she is his.
Richard is to marry a rich, frigid woman in a few weeks, and has deliberately closed his heart to love. Then a coach accident throws his wounded body into Rose's arms.
With one kiss, Richard and Rose discover in each other the passion they thought they'd never find.
But the accident that brought them together was an act of sabotage. Somewhere, in the rotting hulk of a once beautiful stately home, a murderer is hiding.
Richard and Rose set out to solve the mystery, and find the layers of scandal go deeper than simply determining who is guilty. And that doing the right thing could separate them-forever.
Warning: This series is addictive. Passion and murder are a potent mix.
Download Yorkshire tomorrow or whenever the ebookstores have updated the listing to reflect the free giveaway.

For some reason BooksOnBoard is selling this, rather than being a giveaway for today (Sunday), as advertised.
Go to Amazon for the freebie.
“How to Write the First 3 Paragraphs of YOUR Indie Novel” - by Max Waxwelp1) Always write 3 sentences of exposition; 2) now create some dialogue, preferably no more than 2 sentences; and 3) make certain the dialogue is either inane or humorous. Example:
“Bob, I did not know you wore yellow suspenders,” Sally remarked.
“Gee, Sally, those are not suspenders. I am wearing yellow underwear today,” Bob revealed.
The dialogue above will help produce at least 100 more pages of dialogue.

I think BooksOnBoard just has not updated their site yet, perhaps they do not update over the weekend.
Lessons in Love is still showing as a free Samhain title, even though the Samhain website says that the end date for that giveaway is 8/22.
Those with Kindles can go ahead and download Yorkshire, while those without will have to be patient until BooksonBoard makes it available for free.

Thanks for posting this. I hope it doesn't turn out to be erotica rather than a Georgian romance.

It's not! Lynne Connolly's Georgian historicals are romances and not erotica, unlike her other books. I've enjoyed this series, the fourth book "Harley Street" has just been released. Presumably that is why the first book is being offered for free.

Thanks for the find! I was able to get the ADE version off of Books on Board.
So many books, so little time!
