So - it was another good mail day today. However I wasn't totally happy. I ordered some things from Chapters on Monday - to soothe the sting of not seeing Bon Jovi (which apparently was The Best Concert Ever according to my coworker *sigh*) The first of the order came yesterday - but I'm going to be mysterious over that. Today one of the books I ordered came in.
Satisfaction by Marianne Stillings. I adored her last book so I have high hopes for this one.
Now for why I'm not so happy. Over three weeks ago I ordered all the other books from Harlequin and I am not to happy with them. First of all, about a week after I ordered them I got an email saying my credit card was refused. Now I know this was not the case because for one of the rare times I had my balance down to practically zero. The same thing happened the time before that too and the guy on the phone when I called to find out what was going on, explained it must have been keyed in wrong. He reversed it then and everything was fine. But I wasn't too pleased when the same thing happened again. I sent them back a strongly worded email advising them to check again. All I got was a very brief reply saying it went through. Then a few days after that I got another email saying one of the books I ordered - The Angel and The Outlaw - was unavailable and would not be shipped. That was a load of crap as it is a December book and listed on their website, and not only that, it was listed as a special purchase, why I don't know since it's the same price as many of the other books. Again I sent a strongly worded reply back to them. Four days after that I received a notice they had shipped the books and they would take 3 to 8 days to arrive. They arrived today - on the 8th day. And since I ordered on a Friday, I received a free book. I'm not going to mention it - but I've got to say, I think it's from their bargain bin. It's a tiny little thing and according to the cover price cost $4 - Canadian!
Now it seems to me, they should have made more of an effort to keep me as a customer, but they didn't.
And that's the last time I will order anything from E-Harlequin. I'd rather pay a higher price than go through the hassles they have put me through twice in a row now. I order something from Chapters and I get it in two days. So not the case with E-Harlequin!
Regardless though, I'm happy to finally get them. Here's what I got
Bedded by Her Lord by Denise Lynn *shudder* - Terrible title
Becket's Last Stand by Kasey Michaels - now all I have to do is read the other two.
The Angel and The Outlaw by Kathryn Albright - yep they shipped this one after all
The Empath by Bonnie Vanak - I like her books and I'm curious to read this one
Lord of Scandal by Nicola Cornick - I have a bunch of her books and haven't read one yet. But the covers are all so pretty.
And to all my friends south of the border - Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving and you don't get too run off you feet tomorrow :-)
And one more thing before I go. Stay tuned for Monday!! We have something very special planned for the week!!!!
Sometimes life is funny. I got home from work tonight and there was another package from Harlequin - inside - as second copy of The Angel and The Outlaw *shaking head* Not only that, but when I checked my account online - they gave me a credit for it. So now I have 2 copies and
Wasn't charged for either.
So - another book to giveaway when Name That Book resumes.
And.......I also received my copy of Lady of Light and Shadows by C.L. Wilson
