No worries Kim - it's been a few days since I've had time to get back onto Goodreads.

Harlequin Books Hi Marie, I'm sorry it took a bit to stop by and say thanks for being a friend. Lately it seems 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, I would be delighted to answer them. Also, I list as much eHarlequin news and author news as I can so be sure to watch for my updates.

Happy reading,
Kim S., Harlequin Books ambassador
