Free Read for Everyone!

Hey, readers!  Julie Miller here.  Instead of posting my newsletter here (you can still read it on my website at, I thought I'd take a moment to tell you how you can all get a free Julie Miller novella to read.

Starting June 1st, will be publishing a free online novella of mine titled THE BRIDESMAID'S BODYGUARD.  The website will post a new chapter every day through June.  As our summers get busy, but we still want that quick reading fix, this is a fun way to read a complete story.  Of course, if you're one of those readers who can't stand that kind of suspense, you can certainly wait until June 30th to sit down and read the whole novella in one sitting. ;)

You don't need a Kindle or NOOK or iPhone or free app of any kind.  Just go to, click on "Extras" in the red bar across the top of the page, and scroll down to "Online Reads".  THE BRIDESMAID'S BODYGUARD will be there for you to start reading on June 1.

Another option, too, if you don't like reading on a computer screen, smart phone or tablet, is to print off the pages and read them that way.  Once you're into the story, Harlequin has a "Print this Page" command so you can get a hard copy.  The story will remain free in the archives on the site after June 30th, so you can go back and read it later, or print off your own copy to read when it's convenient.

At any rate, I just wanted to let you know.  "Free" sounds like a spiffy deal to me!

BTW, THE BRIDESMAID'S BODYGUARD is a prequel to my August release, KCPD PROTECTOR.  (You can get KCPD PROTECTOR July 1 at, later in July/August 1 elsewhere).  You don't have to read the novella to follow the book, but it's a fun enrichment story that gives readers a background explanation to an important picture in KCPD PROTECTOR.  Plus, it's always fun to visit and meet new characters from Kansas City's fictional Fourth Precinct!  Deputy Commissioner George Madigan, the hero of KCPD PROTECTOR, plays a key supporting role.  And you'll get to see some highlights from Nick Fensom and Annie Hermann's wedding--they were major players in last year's Precinct: Task Force miniseries.  And, if you like Jim Parker, the detective hero in THE BRIDESMAID'S BODYGUARD, you'll be able to see him again as a supporting character in my 2015 miniseries, The Precinct: Cold Case.

Well, you readers know how I roll...  Love creating that community of characters!

Happy Reading!  Remember, this is a free novella for everyone at
