Harlequin Books Hi Barb, I'm sorry it took a bit to stop by and say thanks for being a friend. I swear my day is over before it properly began! While here, I want you to know that if you ever have any questions about the books on my shelves or about Harlequin.com, Stop by the HB profile and I would be delighted to answer them. Also, I list as much Harlequin news and author news as I can so be sure to watch for my updates.

Happy reading,
