16 Free Harlequin Romance Novel Downloads

By February 6, 2009

Follow me on:

This offer is no longer available. You can still download thousands of free Kindle and Nook books which include many romance novels.
I like to read, but romance novels are not quite on my radar when I'm in search for reading material. However, many people (nearly 100% women I suspect) love reading Harlequin romance novels.

If this group includes you, then you just hit the jackpot. Harlequin is offers 16 free downloadable PDF format novels for your reading pleasure. They are celebrating 60 years of publishing smu... er... I mean romance novels. You can find out more and get your free novels on the Harlequin Celebrates site.

Let me know if my assumption of nearly 100% women readers is accurate by posting a comment below. I would love to hear from male readers bold enough to admit reading romance novels or women who know of mean who read them.

I read the romance novels and I give the really steamy ones to my husband to read. It seems to stimulate things a bit if you know what I mean.

I wouldn’t buy that junk even on the 25c shelf at the thrift shop!

This is a good offer if you want to read it on the computer but to print it out to read it .. this is crazy. The one I looked at was 282 pages. To print that out would cost more than to go out and buy the book, until you figured out the cost of paper, ink and including the wear on your printer. I do not think this is an offer worth my time, but thanks for finding good offers.

Sorry not 100% of women read romance novels. Personally I don’t care for them.

Wendy – he means of the people that read them almost all are women, not that all women read them.

Thanks for the information! I’m a huge romance fan and take great offense when people just shrug the genre off as trash or pornography (which is not what you were doing, but some folks do). Personally, I don’t like mysteries or Westerns. It’s great that variety is out there and all readers can find something they enjoy!

I do not read romance novels.

I never read them either! Almost every other kind of book but romance like that doesn’t interest me.

Sorry, I find Harlequin books entirely too tame. But I do enjoy a good romance novel. Like one of your previous commenter, I, too, share the interesting parts with my husband to get a little spice. It’s no different than men & their Playboy or Hustler magazines. At least we’re not ogling “meat” when we crack open a book; there are NO PICTURES. EVen the movies are far more graphic than what we can find in a romance novel.

I will read them and thank you for the offer.

I love reading Romance books pretty much any of them my mother doesn’t approve but she still lets me read them everytime I finish piles of books I take them to the library and exchange them in the free books area.

I am a male who reads harlequins mostly regency era and also some of the othes like desire or blaze which are barely one step above porn I read as a young teenager[the old midwood series]

I know of at least three other women besides myself who don’t read romance novels and one man who has a secret vice of reading Harlequin Romances. I am a very strong intelligent woman who wants her female protagonists to be strong and intelligent. I didn’t care for the romance novels even as a young girl–it was all a bit too weepy and wispy for me even in my teens. My adult daughter and my younger sister are of the same cut of cloth– we come from a long line of strong, intelligent independent women who find the romance novels a bit too shallow and sugary for our taste, but we respect the folks who love’em.

I like the suspense and historical, they are easy reading! Thanks. My mom loves these books, but her eyesight isn’t what it use to be, she enjoyed them because she could make the font as big as she needed.

(15) Ana says:

I just want to say thank you very much for sharing this. My favorites are western, and historical romance novels and I found some offered here. The effort you put into finding a wide variety of free offers and bargains does not go unnoticed!

I do like romance novels, but after so many, you become a connoisseur: Judith McNaught, Julia Quinn, Jude Deveraux, & Mary Balogh (so no Harlequin) And as for being graphic, I think if they used pictures instead of words, they’d be rated x – even the ones you find in the libraries. Only the players are all in committed relationships, (or heading there). What interests me is how many of the authors have degrees in … science??

I like the idea of the downloaded books (& I did download them).

Like someone said, too long to print, but I am putting them on a disk and bringing it with when I travel with my laptop.

did anyone have trouble downloading them? I choose one and read the excerpt…but there is no download or instructions to download…what am I missing?

(19) Dee says:

i can’t find a download place for them either so the site is not good to me without that.

The downloads work just fine. make sure you have recent version of Adobe Flash installed. Just clcik on the cover and you will get a window with a big red button to download the PDF. I noticed with FireFox mine downloaded in the background without showig that it was actually downloading. I just checked my download folder and there it was.
