Heh. See what happens when you click the "Romance" category filter.

And apparently the "appearing soon" 12th one will be erotica.

Thanks for the heads up; always nice to see publishers giving away DRM-free stuff.

What kind of category is "bonkbuster?" Is that British for "softcore erotica?"

The Oxford English Dictionary has added the word "bonkbuster" to its online version on June 18 2002, defining it as "a type of popular novel characterised by frequent sexual encounters between the characters".

Sue Limb, who coined the term in 1988, told the Guardian "for someone like herself who regularly played with words it was an easy step from blockbuster to bonkbuster after a publisher asked for a "big thick book with lots of bonking in it".

I thought the term was boinking, but maybe that's that's another British vs. American spelling.

Not free, but also by Mills and Boon:
http://www.millsandboon.co.uk/books/...star-crime.htm

Black Star Crime novels available as e-books such as Lance Elliot (aka Kevin McCarthy) "Murder Plot". Sounds intriguing. See: http://www.millsandboon.co.uk/books/...urder-plot.htm

I think Mills & Boon have a skewed idea of what "soon" means.

lol! I was thinking that myself. I saw this thread pop up to the top and thought maybe they finally revealed the final title.

The lot of these are now free @ Amazon UK. Still no sign of the mystery 12th book.
