Smart Bitch Blogger Bundle

Harlequin has been doing these awesome blogger bundles where romance folks online select a few titles to package together. I’m in volume six: Books that Rocked my Socks.

Once there was a blogger who didn’t think category romances could satisfy her needs…but quickly learned the error of her ways! Now Sarah of SBTB has hand-picked a selection of her favorite Harlequin category romances with intricate plots and memorable characters that she guarantees will change the mind of anyone who has ever sniffed at Harlequin titles and thought they were too little to have a big impact. Bundle includes: Sex, Straight Up by Kathleen O’Reilly; Ruthless Awakening by Sara Craven; The Magnate’s Make-Believe Mistress by Bronwyn Jameson; Hot Under Pressure by Kathleen O’Reilly; and The Tycoon’s Rebel Bride by Maya Banks.

The set of five is available digitally for $17.06. If you download the set, I hope you dig them as much as I did.

    Hilarious but oh so true. Yes, tired of it as well. Wonder what would happen if hero/heroine was blind?

    Neatness!!  I didn’t realize they were doing this.  Sara you are pulling back into the world of Catagories.  Which I haven’t visited since the mid-90’s.  On my TBB (to be bought) list.

    I’m getting in line for this bundle.  I haven’t read any of those.

    I stumbled onto (and purchased) this a few days ago, when looking up a Dear Author bundle. I wondered why you hadn’t blogged about it!!  It’s cool that they’re making available the O’Reillys which you gave such good reviews to. :)

    (Spam word, would69, uh…no comment.)

    What a great idea to resurrecting some older categories that stand out from the crowd.  Good selling point for those who aren’t primarily into categories.  I noticed on of the other bundles has one of my favorite old Bombshells, Stephanie Doyle’s “The Contestant” and another had Jo Leigh’s “Arm Candy” which I enjoyed.  Makes me interested to read the others since my taste might match up to the reviewer(s).

    A couple of things are impinging on my enjoyment of this bundle. I’ve read “Magnate’s Make-Believe Mistress”  (good book, tho’ too short) but not the others which sound really cool.  There should be links on the Harlequin site to make it easy to “un-bundle” and only get the ones you want. ALSO it should be much easier to find out info about each title. Clicking on the cover only gets you a bigger picture of all the covers.  If you want reviews or summaries of each title, you have to “Google” it and go to the sep. review site.  A royal pain.  Why can’t there be direct links from the Harlequin site to the blogger’s reviews, esp if they are positive, as they are in this case?  In any case, thanks Sara for pointing me towards these bundles, I’ve learned about some good books, even though I don’t want to buy the entire bundle!

    OK, SB Sarah – I’ve taken up your challenge and bought the bundle.  I stopped reading HQ in high school, but am willing to give it another go….

    ….Oh, and if anyone knows where I can score Fire of Spring as an ebook, I would be eternally grateful!

    Great choices!  And I say that because having been a faithful reader of both this blog and your twitter feed (even if I don’t have a twitter account) as well as Dear Author, I have acquired and read all the books in the bundle!

    I’ve tried reading a few categories but they were so awful that I’ve never gone back – but I’ll try some of these.

    However, this has prompted me to rant.  Every time I see the term “mistress” in a contemporary context I want to scream.  The definition of “mistress” includes material support from the man and has an implication of possession or ownership.  And yet, when the term is used in contemporaries it’s usually referring to a woman who’s in a love affair.  I think “mistress” is a degrading term for women – the man is her lover and she is the mistress – – WTF!!  I see this in all types of romance, but categories are the worst.  Does this bother anyone else?

    thanks very much for posting. I bought the bundle and I’m eager to read it. But I read your recommendations first. I never read any HQ, so don’t know what the fuss is all about.

    I got the bundle on Tuesday and have found it to be a wonderfully effective procrastination aid. I’ve only got one book left, though, and once again, homework looms. Could you make another bundle, please, ASAP?

    I absolutely loved this bundle and zipped through them at the expense of many chores so all and all I would like to say thank you bunches.  I am sure my husbands isn’t all that thankful though.  I am off to search the archives to find other books that you have recommended after this bundle of joy and your suggestion for Bitten.  I am thinking we have similar tastes…

    Thanks again
