Hello, Everyone!

Not seeing a title you've been waiting for? Our website ate some of the code we use to create the shopping list and deleted some of our titles. We're fixing it now, so come back for Romantic Suspense and Erotic Titles, which will be updated later this afternoon.

Best,
Jenn Proffitt @ Team H&H
