Freebie Friday: Romance - Contemporary (1)

Freebie Friday is a meme adopted by many book blogs around the interwebs to promote e-books that are currently available for $0.00 on Amazon either permanently or for a limited time. I break down the types of "freebies" into whatever category Amazon has placed them in. This week (and the subsequent few weeks) will feature Romance - Contemporary. I have never really been all that into contemporary reads but I am always willing to try new things. These are a few e-books that sound interesting to me and I hope you all find some that you want to try as well. (Click the link to be taken to Amazon and the picture to be taken to Goodreads)

Always forced into the public eye because of his business dealings and high-profile relationships, Michael doesn't trust journalists, and he doesn't trust women.

When her husband commits suicide, he leaves her pregnant and one million dollars in debt to a loan shark.
